started reading from where i left off...

 

 

my blood dried up and turned into sugar.

In this manga, something like that isn't so much a "cliffhanger" as a "grassy hillock hanger".

Clinging on desperately over the dizzying one-foot drop!

On another interpretation, given how fast things move here, I'd say falling from a regular cliff would be totally harmless anyway.

By now I'm used to false alarms in this manga. It's probably Sayaka worrying about something simple like buying a present for Kazuki's birthday or something like it.

why do i get the feeling it's bc kashiwagi developed a crush on somone that isn't sakuraba...that thing of the love advice early, sayas glare and calling him out without kazuki and kashiwagi knowing...am i overthinking this?

well.. it probably just because soon it would be Sayaka's birthday and Kazu tried to prepare a surprise in secret

 

anyway... Sayaka X Kazuki is back again... woohoo

I hope they don't do some forced drama that breaks up Sayaka and my boy Kazuki

Lol the side characters are waaaaaaaaaaaaaay more better than the mc :D

Nope.

So...anyone else notice that Gakkou Gurashi anime announcement?

 

It kept me in "oh god do I want to watch it? The feels, the tears...but...ughhhh" state until that Kazumi smoothness brought me back.

 

On the chapter

Spoiler

I do wonder does slow progression refers to the number of chapters or the amount of (virtual) time the MCs spend together? It's great that every chapter has 20+ pages but in reality it's mostly unnecessarily large panels of character smiling/grinning. Rather than saving those large panels for special occasions where the MCs made progress in their relationship, the author opt to spam it every chapter for the silliest reason (e.g. receiving a text for Ch 64). Then there's the blatant usage of screentones in practically most of the panels to justify the lack of background. At times, it feels like 2 or even 3 pages can be condensed into one if not for those large panels and plenty of idle talk.

 

Slow progression is one thing but from how I see it, the author's just trying to pad the story until it eventually got axed before he finally gave the MCs the happy end they (kind of) deserve. There's already 8 volumes and 64 chapters which, really, is just 30+ chapters or less worth of (artistic) content if compared with other authors. I can't shake off the feeling that the author is doing all this to comfortably meet his deadline and compile more volumes for sales profit.

 

This might be true, but almost every manga has "filler" to pad chapters and volumes they just use different methods. Romance manga typically use things like "misunderstandings" or "accidents" to set the couple back. It's just a bunch of going in circles and denial of feelings until the manga ends and then everything is wrapped up with a confession and conclusion in like 1 volume if you are lucky.

 

Remember these are serialized stories that are supposed to go on forever (in theory) so things need to be dragged on. Almost none of them have a planned progression so the entire manga is filler except for the start and the end. This is also why many manga have events that make no sense, it's just the mangaka pulling stuff out at random to keep the story going.

^ Never mind sailing, I haven't even finished building it yet! LMAO!

let's just focus on enjoying the cuteness.

I've just begun reading this and finished all available chapters in two days. I don't think the story is progressing slowly, it matches both MCs characteristics quite well. I know a few couples IRL who progressed even slower than them. All in all, this is refreshing, with the focus on interactions and self development, and almost no unnecessary fan service or ecchi moments. I wish I had something like this to read thirty years ago, it would've been a great help in understanding other teenagers around me then.

 

Trust me, as long as you read it in one go it's a really good series, as nothing is ever rushed. But if you follow it monthly, it dawns upon you how slowly it progresses in real life time. I guess it's a series you can mostly enjoy by reading it in volumes.

It's a nice change from other mangas where the couples are formed in 10~20 chapters, followed by 8+ volumes of silly misunderstandings, artificial problems and random ex-lovers/rivals that show up to stir trouble just to leave a few chapters later, never to be seen or heard from again.


Edit: Derp, just noticed how long it turns out to be so I'm putting it in spoiler.

I think the progression is fine the way it is. Especially here since it's well done. We get to see progress in a slice-of-life fashion. Plus we get to see how the side couples evolved.

Well-argued opinion.  I would counter with something else though.  In terms of pacing, in terms of dialogue, in terms of plot, in terms of character development, the relationships within this series progress methodically.  Is there any reason why the form shouldn't follow this as well?  The artistic form here and specifically the use of so much open space in so many panels really does reinforce the measured, methodical attributes of this title.  Give it a reread to help appreciate the cultivation and the planning involved in every single chapter.  

 

@Demo:  Let's talk at length sometime about magazine demographics/marketed demographics and narrative conventions.  There are conventions within this title that really do echo so many of the shoujo/josei titles you know I'm so fond of.  :)

From the community's point of view, it's quite good. Slow progression as this is a romcom, slice-of-life, but nothing too egregious. Rather heavy on fluff and vanilla, although it's to be expected.

*looks at cover* Where did she get a Yuuto amiibo?

This isn't shoujo, though. It's in a seinen magazine.

thanks for the correction. My mistake

Gotta give it to kazuki. I dont know many other shoujo romance mangas with someone as smooth as him
