Haru's drawing the shortest stick again. How unusual.

 

But well, if the events that happened meant something at all, it means not only Rikuo is thinking a bit more about what he really wants to do, but he's actually hesitating about what he feels about Haru. Which is nice.

This manga has always felt like that movie 'Closer' to me.

Spoiler

This series feels so real and down to earth. The unexpected is unexpected, not unreal or super convenient. Sure, it's slow, but it feels right. 

Giant fucking love web.

For those old enough to have played certain ancient text adventure games:

You are in a twisty maze of dead-end relationships, all different. ;)

Always wanted to get to that one. But Hitchiker's Guide was the first one in my stack and I don't believe I ever made it out of the house. After a few weeks on and off I went back to Ultima V. Now that you reminded me I'll have to dig my Apple II out of 15-20 years of junk in my attic.

Shit's going down.

Everyone's going to hook up or break up very soon.

who the fck is mimori-chan ...?

OMG... the memories....The forest... The maze... The grue....

And another link added? When will it end?

AN ENDLESS, NEBULOUS LABYRINTH OF MURKY RELATIONSHIPS.

I swear, keeping track of this story is like trying to follow a cobweb through a muddy stream.

I personally just love Haru. (those character sketches at the first page of every chapter, just soo cute, It's like Haaaawwww, every time.) But then again, there just isn't too many mangas were genuinely nothing happens, where you can taste the dull everyday life in every character and their development and that's precisely why reading it gives you such feels.

I'm just so hyped that VI is still scanlating this, one of the few mangas I come back for these days.

I approve of Haru's drying technique.

months after i last checked this out, it's a bit annoying to see that shinako is still a master juggler. i guess this is how it goes with mangas whose mangaka focuses solely on prolonging the story. i mean come on even pastel's story is progressing. this? it's like the characters are all in a murky swampish loop of indecision.

I guess it was just a matter of time, that the kid meets someone at college, who catches his eye.

 

PS: I am always amazed how Toume Kei manages to make one's heart skip a beat with her female character designs

I kinda like this tension Rikuo has in his romance. Can't wait till the next plot point pushes him towards one side over the other.

I really just want Shinako or Rikuo to end it already... I'm kinda of hoping she'll make a mistake with the kid and Rikuo catches her. First time I've ever hoped the protagonist would catch his girlfriend cheating on him...

well, the break up is obvious but damn shinako, why you so damn bitch?

it will better if she become real bitch who cheat him than like this, didn't cheat him but still give rou-kun hope

Incoming storms... of drama!

The tragedy is that now ANY relationship she can possibly get into would pale in comparison to what she'd had before. Any normal man will look like a selfish, sex-addled juvenile compared to the fallen white knight she'd once loved. 

 

 

I agree, I mentioned this in the thread in less eloquent words but my opinion is the same. She will never have a relationship so "pure" as this. She treated him well and he in kind was all happy to have someone to share his last days. Unfortunately now that she's an adult with everyone around her having adult worries, she can't expect this sort of whimsical and bucolic relationship.

 

She has to move on and realize that, but it looks like an impossible thing for her at this point, infact this may prove to be a permanent state for her. During my life I've seen many who lost a lover early and were never able to allow anyone else in.

Oh good, another adition to our whateverthecountisagon.

AMAMIYA NO
who's mimori-chan???

Hmmmm, after reading the latest chapter I went back and reread Shinako's flashback of her lost love.

 

It then occurred to me that the way she treats Rikuo now looks almost exactly like how she used to treat him - or the way he asked her to treat him, knowing full well that he couldn't stay by her side. This, combined with her admission that she's not used to doing physically intimate things with men makes me think that, maybe for Shinako this behavior is exactly what love should be like, and the intimate stuff is an aberration of sorts. Basically, she'd been conditioned by her previous experience of being in love that loving someone means ONLY the deep emotional stuff without the physicality. She'd already gone the transcendent route, achieving in her teenage years a relationship so deep, profound and mutual that most couples could only achieve it after a lifetime of being together. She'd given her all to a doomed boy, and he'd done his best to keep her "untainted" so she'd have a future beyond him.

 

The tragedy is that now ANY relationship she can possibly get into would pale in comparison to what she'd had before. Any normal man will look like a selfish, sex-addled juvenile compared to the fallen white knight she'd once loved. 

 

The problem isn't that Shinako isn't trying - she'd done exactly for Rikuo what she thought she should for a man she loved. The problem is that there's no way for a normal human male to reciprocate in a way that would get her to respond by taking the next step. Rikuo is screwed. There's no way he can possibly compete short of achieving sainthood in his lifetime. 

Well,  I think that Shinako will dump him, question is how long she will drag him along in a limbo zone of not friendzoned but not bf either before she does.
