yeah, I too want to know who the delinquent-looking-guy is and his relationship to Yuki and me too, I keep getting more and more pissed off at Shou.

Utsumi can't seem to catch a break at all.

, that

Seems like the author is taking some sort of pleasure in making the hero suffer. But I wonder how long the readers can endure it when the character they associate to gets new pile of crap dumped on his head with each new issue without anything positive happening?

Yes, I know, that the more pathetic underdog character is, the more impressive his raise becomes, but there really should be a limit to this.

In Medaka such character is Zenkichi, but in there no particularly bad things happen to him - just things showing how useless and pathetic he is, while in here seems that only bad things happen to a hero with whatever the girl he tries to become closer with.

It only seems worse because the guy is actually quite likable and nice and doesn't really do anything bad.

I too wish he would just try to go with Eri because obviously caring for the other two girls will just make him more and more screwed up.

KLGChaos as for the scene

Considering it's only the guys love life that's in the dumps, that's hardly anything. Obviously Yuki only sees him as a friend. Didn't she just say in chapter 11 that she had a hard time believing in love because of what happened to her in the past? And you all expect her to suddenly change her mind within 5 chapters? WTF.

I think she'll take a notice in him as she knows that he's a good guy after getting to know him and he's right now going through pain of not getting the girl he wanted after all the effort he put through. They already went out on a "date" and they seem to click well together so who knows she may give him a chance with her...

it could be that when utsumi somehow gets together with shou, then yuki believes in love and will start to think of utsumi as a romantic partner, cliched but highly possible

Yep! I agree with you, its perfectly plausible that Yuki sees Utsumi only as a friend for now and it would've been quite unrealistic if she suddenly fell in love with him.

Yeah I think so too and I certainly hope so, a steady progress, where they slowly develop their relationship, after getting to know and trust one another more and more is the best. I think even Utsumi will first need to completely get over Shou and gain sincere feelings for Yuki, for Yuki to give him a a chance with her because Yuki will never accept Utsumi if his feelings for her are half-baked as she has already been hurt before and will only accept a sincere and loyal guy who can make her believe in love and men once again, so, if Utsumi only goes after Yuki due to peer-pressure or with half-baked feelings, he will only get rejected and cause hurt to both himself and Yuki. Yuki isn't being cruel, she doesnt even know, that Utsumi can fall in love with her as in her mind Utsumi's feelings for Shou were too strong for him to have a feeling for another gir, so Yuki thinks Utsumi only sees her as a friend and she treats him likewise because honestly it will take quite a while for Yuki to consider a love and a guy again. I am perfectly happy how Yuki and Utsumi's relationship is progressing. I dont see why Utsumi needs to be given a break from his bad-luck and dont agree that nothing good ever happens to him, I mean, what happened to him and Shou happens to alot of teenagers and its all a part of growing up and having to see the girl he loved with someone else is also something that he has to accept and move on as that's life as this would make him stronger and mature while having Yuki by his side as his hope/outlet for his love even if its only at the friendship level now but just having her there beside him is soothing in itself, so its still a "Good-Ending" for Utsumi as it doesnt mean that "Utsumi doesn't get a break does he" which is wrong as Yuki is his break while his mates and Eri are also there for him. Homnestly I dont quite see how Utsumi is being mistreated that horribly

Spoiler for about Shou:


Sorry about the long rant but I dont think GE is as bad as people are making it out to be because I dont think Utsumi is being tortured that badly by the girls around him as much as a Yamato/Haruto and Utsumi is quite a likeable character himself

Dunno if you've been following early discussions about this chapter's raw but it's not really clear if she was actually raped. Many people think it was consensual, recorded and shown to some dorks by her former boyfriend, her rather "calm" expression when thinking about it supports this i think. I write this post for I myself like to think that too. I hope it's revealed in the future.

Exactly, it's only 16 chapters in as well for a manga that could end up being over 100 chapters if popular enough. Yuki's character would be butchered if she fell in love with him quick yet you have people complaining.. go figure..

hmmm

You are probably right. Drama, good or bad, causes discussion and stimulates interests and sales.

If the two get together now, it would just be another Suzuka situation where silly things happen and the main couple takes 10 chapters to temperary break up, 10 chapters feeling sad, then 10 chapters trying out new things, and at the end back together. As far as I can see it, Yuki seems to be the only real ending here.

Oh point of interest/inquiry:

Some people had said that this was a massively popular oneshot before. And the success of the oneshot directly caused this manga to become a series.
Perhaps someone can share some information on that oneshot so we can make some logical conclusions on future activites? Thanks.
