Wow, just wow. This is an excellent piece of Meta and Parody!

But in the same way, it really highlights all of Yozora's painful flaws.....

Somehow.... I wonder I do wonder what if Hagani was genderflipped...

No, scratch that. Male Rika would be one of the most disturbing characters ever.

Poor Rika! She is such a straight character who can put her feelings into words.

She also could be the only girl who is able to push Kodaka forward after fully understanding him at the end of Volume 7.

I've been thinking about a gender-flipped Haganai as well, it would be interesting. I think that Male Sena's advances on Male Kobato would be disturbing as well. (Heck, they already are. )

As for the chapter, I'm liking Rika more and more. She's so straight-forward, and I wish she wasn't considered a side character.

"...She'll betray me... I just know that woman is going to betray me later..."

Yozora makes me sad sometimes. After ten years of assuming that her only friend betrayed her, no wonder she feels this way about people, even though Kodaka didn't do that really. She has to learn not to expect the worst in people. She's been carrying this problem for years, and, really, she's the most emotionally damaged character of this series. There's a lot of potential for growth in Yozora, and that's what makes her interesting.

"I've still got a chance to make it work with a stupid, friendless yankee in the real world!"

I hope she does, but Kodaka is getting on my nerves with his feigned ignorance of what's going on.

Not really "feigned". Kodaka himself is the hardest one to approach in the whole story, not able to realize why he can't make any friends. But there is Rika who points it out.

No, I think it's mostly feigned when it concerns the club members. He just doesn't want things to change, because he's worried of what might happen...

He knows why, but is denying it because he doesn't want the current situation to end.

And technically he's responsible for the 10 years of hurt - he also held back until the last day because he wants protect the now that he's enjoying and fearful of the future. And even then didn't tell the full story.

At this point, he probably knows that should he reciprocate any of those signals the four girls are subtly hinting at him, it's possible that the strains of a romance would easily break the tenuous relationships between the members of Neighbor club. Their young friendships may not be able to survive it.

Also if he picks one then its basically the end of the light novel, so i hope he doesnt for while and the humorous situations continue!

I'm guessing she doesn't like it when people flock to her and that's why she dislikes Sena so much (she is like her classmates on overdrive).
May I know which chapter or where you see it?

I have checked official sites and pretty much the only "news" is the date of the 4th volume of the manga.

The one that "I think" is the official site of the author has been closed for a while (way before he even got sick).

.... Hasn't someone actually heard anything? I figure that I can't be up to date unless I follow magazine interviews (which I don't) or something.

The end of volume 3. However, the anime skipped many, many events and jokes, so don't take that to heart, I can only advice to read everything from the start.

Vexed just released the start of volume 6.

Just goes to show that Kodaka's desperation is making him into a douchebag. Cure him Rika, cure his ass...!!!

btw
does [mod edit: Yozora...] realize, because she exposed her relation ship with Kodaka as friend, that mean she didn't need to be in the club anymore? she already achieve her goal (to make friend) the reason why one joined Neighbor Club?
