In Japan(and a great many other cultures) "hard work" is something to aspire to.  Even in failure, if someone "worked hard" then they are still praised and well regarded.  Granted, success is praised even more, but the idea of "working hard towards success" is the most noble ideal there is.  It's thought of as "the harder someone works, they more they'll grow as a person."  It's a benchmark for personal growth.  It makes complete sense in regards to this story.

Being devoted is nice and all, but I think it's best to work smarter, not harder.

 

Also, I added the sci-fi tag again (a looong time ago I added it, but it's since been removed and replaced with the supernatural tag). So far there's no evidence that the pills are in any way supernatural, so even though of course they're unrealistic, it would still be science fiction since in their world they're using science to do this, not magic.

It's hard to take losing €50 seriously.

I'm sorry but €50 is a lot to me.
and no matter if it's a lot or not, it's community money, you have to account every penny of it. it's a form of responsibility

It's hard to take losing €50 seriously. 

 

What is hard about that? They are high schoolers, not working adults. They don't have a ton of cash anywhere. And even as an adult you should value money. 50€ is not such a small amount you make it out to be, anyone who doesn't shit money would have a negative reaction about that.

Hishiro, of all the things you're supposed to change about yourself, never change that part!

U know this gave me a sleepless night... It's sooo good... And I read a lot of chapters. Still not finished though... like 20-something chaps remaining.

Edit: Ohh noo i read it all T-T Now I have to wait..

Oh my, the money disappearded and a bitchy blonde we never saw before says someone *cough* best girl Hichiron *cough* stole it.

 

No, that blonde girl is a classmate who argued with Hishiro in Ch.132.

...It's maybe a coincidence or not, I don't know.

Dropping bombshells but following up with heartwarming closing panels. Only in this manga. Never fails.

I sure wonder who's the real culprit.

Subaru, of course.

Hishiro will be blamed for sure, not Arata. Arata has stated the one brought money is always Hishiro. Class will frame her immediately, plus they don't like her. Given Arata's personality, he will try to discuss it as usual. But if nothing goes right, he will take the blame for Hishiro. Hell, he will do self-sacrifice if he needs to (same case about "losing memories" thing) This is when Hishiro comes in, she's smart and observe people well, I think she will know immediately who the culprit is. But instead of being angry she probably will apologize for not relying on others and causing trouble like this-- thus using her own money for a while. Because for them, preparing for festival is more importand than searching for the culprit.

Indeed we disagree. Now,

TEAM VALOR ALL THE WAY BABY

But really though, (spoilered for length)

What do you think?

This is where we disagree. Shock therapy is largely a myth. Making people stronger by tormenting them does not work. So no, the whiplashing is not actually good. To the contrary, that kind of inconsistent treatment makes people weaker and dependent; it is typically used by abusers to keep the person they're abusing too weak and uncertain about themselves to run away. It's true that Ryo reads Arata very well. It's a pity he uses that skill in such worthless ways.

Spoiler

Thing is, in reality this is not an issue that can be made sense of inside the walls of the toon. The real reason Ryo acts like a dick is that Ryo and whatshername acting like dicks is where half the comic relief comes from, so they have to keep acting like dicks even if it's totally stupid and counterproductive and even inconsistent with the motivations they establish at other times. The author is kind of caught by the structure he's set up; the way the story is developing they should try not to act like dicks, but it's a comedy so he still needs them to act like dicks for the yuks (and it is often quite funny when they do). Result is inconsistency.

But maybe the cockblocking is part of the plan?

 

I dunno, I find An and Ryo amazing. My opinion of Ryo was always high, he really can read Arata perfectly

And the whiplashing is actually good, it's shock therapy: there's no reason why things should be easy.

I think they probably going to say that Hishiro is the one who stole it.. and Arata who defends her become a suspect too.. and both of them probably got help from the support team, kariu+ohga pair, trio childhood..

^

Looking forward to the next chapter

 

 

Arata will probably blame himself for losing it. Pwning the girls who took it in order to put the blame on hishiro, and raising a deep flag on her after that. Off course, knowing Hishiron she won't accept that, but still, they'll blame Arata for this instead of her

that expression though...priceless

Can we appreciate cat Hishiron for a bit

I'd say ponytail girl did it when Hishiro collapsed. Or they worked together.

I even wanna say maybe support team did it to test the subjects lol

Main suspect: the ponytail girl who asked for money and right after Arata took a look at the envelope screamed "There's no money left!". It wasn't even a question, she stated that aloud for everyone to hear it.

 

Secondary suspect: the blonde girl who suggests someone stole it. Not a far-fetched assumption, that's true, but very convenient if you try to pin the blame on another person.

 

Now we're in full detective mystery mode, where being paranoid about every possible clue is the right thing to do XD

Might be an oldie but it's a goodie. Stealing someone's lunch money has been a staple, and it's always good to see how people react when faced with a situation. Will people ostracise Arata? With the way this manga has created its characters, I doubt that.

 

Will everything be solved with the deduction skills of the older test subjects? The story's been building up to this, with Hishiro's past and inability to work with people so I put a quick resolution as being highly unlikely.

 

Which leads to the most likely scenario of people will start to suspect Hishiro. As much as I hope it won't do the same old song and dance of having everyone starting to ignore/bully Hishiro just as she's realising that she should become more of a team player, I think everything's been leading up to this. Which will lead to her becoming more introspective, to which Arata will come and save the day by quietly talking with the actual perps.

 

Side note, what kind of school lets the students deal with the festival money? Is there no adult on hand to actually keep a hand on these things? I realize the point of this exercise is to have the students become more independent, and the money lost wasn't a huge amount, all things considered (about US$50) but having a teacher be the 'bank' would have solved all of this.  

whelp.. trying to frame Hishiron.. you don't even know there's the not so smart Arata here

Just noticed the Supervisor/Subject part, it should be Yoake Ryo and Kaizaki Arata. Otherwise, great chapter.

Arata will have to work as as sailor

Ah, this old song and dance again

Classic
