I just read chapter 19, somehow it was very nice, telling us more about Tsubaki's sister, a character who has been totally in the background until now. I like how Mikoto's chat with her is handled, their talk is simultaneously intimate and distant due to the polite use of generalities when talking of personal things.

I like the backdrop of the shopping street, the little details like the "Cafe Cat Town" remind me of that place of the dream with all its strange signs and buildings.

Incidentally, the sign over the shopping street, 風見台商店街, says “Kazamidai shopping district”

A lot of fanservice in chapter 20, but the ending was... "mysterious". *goes to corner of room, but comes back for a final comment* Too bad it'll be several weeks, or even months, before the next volume comes out.

Thumbs up

I loved the artwork on the double page spread. As soon as I saw it I knew it must be a dream sequence, as they're always crowded with strange stuff. I'm especially intrigued by the robot teddy bear, but also the three dancers picture on the wall behind.

I wonder if Mikoto actually has a family? Perhaps someone will come home just as Tsubaki is going to go for it....

The crying made me think of Lum's alien boyfriend in Urusai Yatsura, who appeared to be crying about Lum rejecting him but was actually crying because the sweet potatoes he was eating tasted so good. Maybe Tsubaki is crying for an analagous reason.

I'm wondering if it's going to end up being like Mirai Nikki (Mikoto killed the parents) but I don't think it will be quite that dark..... In any case, I LOVED the action between the two of them in 20.... here's hoping for more!

Something unexpected happened: someone decided to translate the series from the magazine that this series is apparently being published in (I didn't even know that this was a serialized manga).


All I'm going to say about the new chapters is that it brought a conclusion to this little "arc" with a major step forward taken between Urabe and Tsubaki (a hot and "steamy" step forward).

Wow 2 new chapters, and what a 2 chapters they were. The author really did a great job. And finally glasses girl became useful for a change instead of annoying.

Have to say Pages 21 and 22 of chapter 22 became 2 of my favorite over this entire manga. Now that is what I call plot movement.

Really want to thank translators for the double realse since only 1 would have really put me in desperation mode to see the conclusion. Want ot say more but I was left speechless and with a smile to read what happend.

If it wasn't that special (i like this term better than 'strange' ) i probably wouldn't have picked it up in the first place.

Lol I meant strange in a good way. Its what keeps me interested although it is bordering on absolute weirdness.

You think this series is weird? I've read much weirder series, which were also good.

The good thing is in 20 + chapters, the plot is really advancing and character development is very much existent throughout the series, unlike some other manga that runs at 200++ chapters already and is still figuring out a plot.
