i dont see how red haired girl looks like shes bullying her too? it looks like she and the guy are showing off that shes "friendly" with her in front of sera (the real bully) in order to intimidate her. idk maybe im dumb and missing something but thats what it looks like. seems like a nice chick, if a bit scary

We're officially fucked next chapter.
"Hurr durr your bag was open" - Yeah bitch you totally didn't just sneak something in there.
It's a wallet or some bullshit and the second the teacher comes in the students will say "I think someone stole ----" and then they'll do a bag check.

I don't mind bullying arcs, they can be pretty interesting. But this one is just bland imo. We're just hitting all the checkboxes.
Not to mention the oh so boring - Don't talk to me at school shtick, cus DRAMA
I'll go ahead and agree as well that it's probably because the bully was interested in the Male-MC, but as always it'll never work out. I'm sure the author will try to redeem her in some fashion or make her into some sort of love rival.


Nah girl actually kind of nice well more like "i don't care so i'll do what ever I want" kind of thing.

Bully is kind weak though

to be honest, looking at the next chapters, I wonder why this tagged as "gag". It's more of a slice-of-life. There doesn't seem to be jokes or truly ridiculous situations.

 

Not that I'm complaining, I actually really like this story. Although there's some mystery on what happened to Sumi why she's acting like that, there isn't much that drama that usually felt suffocating.

Was . . . Kang Hwon jealous because Sumi is protecting another guy?

Also, for the chapter 8. Sumi is precious. Stay away, you ass!

So when one helps the other the helper becomes darker?

I think it's more that the Main female isn't what she appears to be or rather that Sumi had went from her seemingly brash and bold personality in primary school had undergo a more subtle and meek personality currently. From the hints and foreshadowing, something had probably happened during her middle school years had caused her to change (how in chapter 2, Sumi's sub-conscious had said how she always "suffocated" in middle school and when she woke up, she mentions how she had this dream "again") and in Chapter 6, she appears to not have a good relationship with her mother (Sumi seems to be very distant and avoids eye contact with her mom). I noticed that she had moved to a school where no one she knows in middle school is in.

 

I'm speculating that both kids had faced some sort of bullying during their middle school years that it affected both of them.

You guys are so wrong about scanlation not hurting the artist/author here. A lot of sites like Naver and Lezhin require them to sign exclusive contracts, and by reposting their work (often times a scanlator will post downloads to untranslated work behind paywalls) those sites might have to look into taking legal action against the scanlators. Worst case they were planning an english translation themselves to put on their sister site, but with enough free scanlations being out they can cancel it because there's no incentive if it's already freely available this way. This means the artist and author might lose that revenue, or that the site will drop them all together because it's no longer profitable enough and dealing with unauthorized reposting/scanlating is too much of a hassle.

 

And I only know this because I have contacted artists of webtoons before, and one was threatened with having her whole comic and backlog demonetized because the english scanlation had become far too popular. Their publisher was starting to get to the point where it was too much effort and suspicious that she was supplying the raws since the rips were such high quality. The scanlators had opened "donations" too and with the language barrier the publisher automatically assumed they were reselling the comic. You don't even know how fucking close to the edge some of these webtoon artists are to being dropped because of scanlators actions.

 

So to complain your "scanlations" were reposted while begging for "donations" is fucking laughable. You're basically posting stolen goods while throwing a fit that other people "stole" them from you. So cut the shit and be thankful these artists can even create when you're deliberately putting their livelihoods at stake because you just really wanted the attention/money from reposting their work.

I don't like the boy...and don't think that will change.

He does seem pretty bratty honestly. But with the right character development he might become really interesting.

I don't like the boy...and don't think that will change.

...so why does he agree to go with all of it?

 
Because spring is in the air~
 
...and if not that I have no idea. If this isn't headed towards (b)romance I really have no idea what's going on.

If you don't read the words, it looked like she is confessing or something in the last panel xD

I'm happy to see chapter 3 was uploaded! Really enjoying this, great art

lol, mangafox actually uploaded chapter 2.1.

On a side note, what does 24 hour delay before rehosting get you?


Well, for one, it encourages readers to read there first-hence, increasing the visit count.

I also leave a comment or two there to support them in order to let them know I also read it on their site

Thanks for your comment. I don't want to drop it right away because I genuinely like this series. I really do spend a lot of my personal time scanlating these series so really the reason why I would drop it if this happens again is because I don't want to put in so much time and effort to not be credited in the end. And I'm sorry if it hurts the fans. I can only hope that fans of this series will not read on sites like mangafox/mangahere/mangago/kissmanga and read the chapters on my group's official site.

 

Yup, pretty much. That's how it is all around.

 

This seems like a good time to reference this old thread that explains at length what's going on behind the scenes at sites like Mangafox and why it's basically impossible to do anything about them, except maybe putting things in your chapters reminding readers (who may not know) that those sites are terrible.

So stop translating now so that those people will not stop stealing your jobs. :/

Unfortunately, there is no way to stop them.
Or do you habit or just stop translating.
I do not say it with wickedness, I respect you for what you do but this is a childish behavior. '^^

And the only ones you're really hitting are the fans that follow you respecting your work following where you are asking.

I understand groups get angry that their work is being uploaded without their permission but this has been going on forever and will continue. I don't understand how punishing your fanbase will help the situation.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm on the side of the scanlation groups, but it's not gonna stop because you put up an angry message and the only ones who suffer from it are the fans.

 

Thanks for your comment. The thing is, I really enjoy this series as well. It's cute and interesting, and I want to see where it goes. I actually do spend a lot of my personal time working on scanlation projects, especially this one and I do not want to drop it. However, it's a bit upsetting to see that time go to waste when I'm not even credited for the work I put in. I hope that I didn't come off as going into a blind rage, because it's not like that.

I like it. It's an interesting dynamic. He doesn't seem to hold any grudge against her, on the contrary I think he respects her. On the other hand,
