I think it's awesome that Risa finally gets her own arc with Utsumi but I can't help feeling that Risa is just being used as a plot device to help make Yuki jealous over Utsumi and push those two closer together.

It could be true. I mean, Risa's characterization was REALLY rushed. We'll see if the author plans on giving her the depth that's being given to Yuki and Shou.

I can see Yuki being the kind of girl that doesn't want Utsumi romantically but doesn't want to lose him to anyone else either.

Mm. The fact that Yuki was the main girl in the GE oneshot sort of makes me think that she's slated to be with Utsumi. We'll see, but I doubt it.

Going out with her would be better for him. For one thing she's inexperience when it comes to dating putting her in equal footing with him the fake date with Yuki doesn't really count. Also she doesn't have heavy baggage like Yuki has with all her problems. Won't blame him if he gives this girl a shot. My hope it doesn't turn out like the usual "I'm with you but I'm actually in love with this other girl" cliche.

Well my hope is that before those two start dating he'll have had moved on from Yuki, tired of her "I can't forget my previous boyfriend" thing going on.

Not sure if it's that she can't forget him, but more like what he did to her (though there's definitely the possibility that she may still have feelings for the guy).

I think Utsumi going off on Yuki was a good thing, but he went a bit too far with the last line where hensaid she and Tooru should have never split up. Everything else before that he needed to say, to make her realize what she's doing.

I just like Risa right now because she's the only one without major baggage.

i think it could be that yuki still loves him but she does want to (or dare to) get back together with him cuz she is afraid that he might do the same thing to her again.

Chap 31 :

Lol? The guy regrets about Shou ...
Yuki is damn angry now dude , but she needs to make up her mind too .
I feel sorry for Risa , she doesn't know about Utsumi's situation , she won't have a chance .
Yeah , i hope she'll get her own GE too ^^

I can see atleast a temp RisaXUtsumi for a form of relationship training wheels due to their mutual lack of experience.

in terms of overall plot she stands hardly a chance of an actual ending. Shame she's kind of 'sub heroine' QQ. Also hoping she gets some more character development or even an arc.

Oh man. Awesome chapter. I guess he lost his cool. They both are at fault too, and for the same reason.

*ahem*

Risa end FTW!!

I have to admit, I liked Risa more when she didn't get so flustered and embarrassed. But no when she was a bitch. Like, how she was when she visited Utsumi in the classroom.

Just got done reading 30 & 31, and all I have to say is go Utsumi. I think that everything he said needed to be said. Yuki needed to be shaken up. Also, I really loved Risa in chapter 31. It just reminded me why I like her so much. Go Risa!! Can't wait for 32.

Risa was too adorable in this chapter. But where is everyone getting that they're going on the date from? Utsumi hasn't said yes.

Guys, I find the imangascan nickname for Risa hilarious. Hanbaagaagaaru. LMAO

I hope you aren't justifying the spoiler slip-up in anyway. I don't even want to get started on "it COULD have happened differently (from the spoiler)..."

It's interesting. Shou was in love with her senpai, and she was loved by an underclassman herself, and now his underclassman's got a crush on him. Not sure what you'd call that.
