sigh... cant wait to read another 100 chapters just for a misundertading plot

This misunderstanding is presented to you by:

 

Homemade cookies Inc.

If you're rejected your next confession is for FREE! Call now!

In the anime, it turns out. He just suddenly popped up, which is weird given Alice is nowhere to be found...

 

 

The fuck is this? Man I was gonna catch up on anime on the weekend but what is the point anymore?

>decides to be manly and stop giving Himemiya false hope

>fucks things up with Kanda

I almost always root for the characters who are upfront about why and how much they love someone, even though they only rarely actually get to be with the object of their affection.

 I was scared to click on that because the wording made it seem like there was a spoiler in there. Like relationships weren't gonna happen or something. But thank you, much appreciated.

don't know if this is in order but I've read it like this then continued on

I don't like these love triangle plots where there's a fourth character one of the principles is obviously going to be fobbed off on. It cheapens the tension that supposed to to be the point in the first place...even if there isn't any question of "which one is he/she going to choose"

>misunderstanding

Kanda and Takase is such a gosh darned blight on this manga. At the start I was rooting for them, but this has been dragged out so long, and now it's gonna be another 3 appearances before they finally start talking to each other normally AGAIN. I hope they just stop trying.

Oh great a misunderstanding plot.

Very melancholy and not played for laughs. I salute all the broken hearts.

Ugh, I've been in Takase's position. It sucks.

NORO WHERE ARE YOUUUUU

 

In the anime, it turns out. He just suddenly popped up, which is weird given Alice is nowhere to be found...

 

Anyway, all this complaining about Kanda/Takase is a bit of a waste of time. Anthology series like Tsurezure Children always have anchor characters - those whose hangups are never resolved until the mangaka or the publishers decide to end the series. They provide the main tension in the series and work like cliffhangers in shonen fight manga. The way Tsurezure Children works, we have anchors who provide the hangups, mains who provide all the drama, and concessions who have healthy relationships and therefore provide breathing room to readers.

 

BTW, healthy doesn't mean lovey-dovey dating. Just means they're not hurting each other again and again for the sake of drama. So, Toujou and Ogiue are concession characters because while there's massive tsundere fuckery going on, they actually do get along well and don't hurt each other. In contrast, Kana/Chiaki always mess up and hurt each other despite ostensibly being a comedy duo in a long-term relationship.

 

Right now the anchors are:

- Kanda/Takase

- Takano/Sugawara

- Lovemaster/Kazuko

 

The mains are:

- Kana/Chiaki

- Noro/Alice

- Nashimoto/Sonobe

- Chiba/Kirihara

- Kaga/Nanase

- Wabisabi/Ubukata

 

The concessions are:

- Kamine/Gouda

- Ryouko/Akagi

- Toujou/Ogiue

- Sasahara/Yukawa

- Patty/Keisuke

- Minagawa/Furuya

- Saejima/Souma

- Yamada/Onizuka

- Enomoto/Yokoyama

- Kurihara/Yamane

- Yamada/Onizuka

- Toda/Sunagawa

- Matsuura/Urara

 

So, looking at that list and the sheer number of concession characters, Wakabayashi-sensei is clearly trying to maintain a positive and light atmosphere for the series as a whole. It's just all the anchor hangups have become horribly obvious as of late.

NORO WHERE ARE YOUUUUU

Takase, just what are you doing? It's good that you finally got the courage to tell Nutjob-Alice that you won't respond to her feelings, but shouldn't you have been spending Christmas Eve with Kanda, instead?

Huh Yandere character actually give up. nice.

someone successfully disarmed a yandere!!!!!

I don't know if it's the case where you live, but in many culture a hug is just a way to show some kindess and reassurance to someone in a friendly way. You have a friend you appreciate crying in front of you, you don't stay still like a statue and letting her/him drowing in her/his tears without doing anything.... 

 

It's not "encouraging her", it's just being nice. Takase would have been a real asshole if he hadn't tried anything to console her.

 

Sure, if Nutjob-Alice really was Takase's friend, I could see him hugging her as a friend, but she's not his friend. She's just his classmate that is hell-bent on making him her boyfriend, using any means at her disposal.

 

Takase's intent certainly was not to encourage Nutjob-Alice by hugging her, but there is no doubt in my mind that she will be encouraged, her twisted mind thinking something along the lines of, "Well, since he hugged me, that must mean that he really does like me, so it must be a sign that there still is hope for me...." I am sure that this is not the last time we will ever see Nutjob-Alice attempting to make Takase hers.

The last four panels where just setup for drama. There is nothing really surprising or crazy in that, it's just a writting tool. (a lazy writting tool in my eyes, but it's just my opinion) 

 

I think it'd be lazy if the manga was more focused on a smaller group of couples, but considering it's been twelve chapters since we last had an update on this one, it makes more sense to have something like this happen to drive the plot rather than go for something more gradual and longwinded. With so many stories happening with considerable gaps between updates, getting straight to the point like that is more important. Still, I do get where you're coming from. Having them be in the same place at the worst possible moment is a bit dumb ;).

Where's the chubby girl running? I'm sure by now she's run off all her excess weight (though I believe she was perfect the way she looked I.E. not a twig).

I'm sure this misunderstanding will be solved before it becomes an issue, right? She just needs to change her perspective a bit and its obvious he was just rejecting someone, right?

 

Because this ain't funny, author. THIS AIN'T FUNNY!

Good game Well played

And now that you've actually hugged Nutjob-Alice, don't you realize that that will just encourage her more?

I don't know what's going through the mangaka's head, but the last four panels of chapter 162 were a cruel, crushing blow for Kanda, and it might just become an insurmountable misunderstanding. You have my deepest sympathy, Kanda.

I'm sad for Alice :(

well, she's got some Noro for an afterwards.

aaaaaaaa. my heart broke

"Oh, nice chapter! Looks like Takase and Alice finally got a real talk about their relationship. It's kind of sad for Alice but it's good too see actual progress without any bullsh.........."
