I think the CD drama for volume 6 mentions that Mai has been with SPR for a year.

You're not the only one. I think so too. I also read a review of vol 2 that commented on how Mai and John are almost indistinguishable at times.

@ Runesque: Sorry only read through vol 6 so I wont be clicking that spoiler yet And a Bou-san x Mai thing would be my 2nd pairing but I like Naru better. Bou-san and Mai seem to have more of the older brother, younger sister thing going on.

I noticed the same thing after reading v6. One thing I love about this manga is how you can go back after learning a factoid and see an older scene in a new light based on the information you just learned.

I guess that term is more widely used in bishoujo anime ^^. Naru is what I'd call a tsundere, which is something of a hot-cold personality that sways between tsuntsun (hostile) and deredere (nice). On that note, Haruhi from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu and Tsukimori from La Corda d'Oro can also fit the bill of tsundere.

Agreed, that's the sign of good planning ^^. I myself enjoy going back to the earlier vols and picking up little background details and rereading every character's quirks in speech. Especially Naru's; it feels like the author is very careful with handling his speech.

I also agree with you, White Manju Bun, that so far a Takigawa/Mai is unlikely in that the author probably intends to portray their interactions as brother-and-sisterly. But one can hope...

Hahahahaa!!! I totally didnt even think of him that way! But he is a tsundere! We just dont see his deredere side that often.

~sigh~ Tsukimori............oops! wrong thread!

Now that I know what deredere means, I can attempt some sort of answer. My caveat: I have seen the images from volume 8. But I can't read the text. So I'm basing this on my guesses as to what's going on in the pictures and my spoiler knowledge about the series as a whole.

I didn't catch it until a second or third reading either, so don't beat yourself up about it. When I summarized the manga version of episode 12 for the anime thread, I debated whether to include that in the summary because I thought it would be a dead give away to the resolution of episode 13. I decided to include it because it did happen in the manga & that was what I was supposed to be reporting. No one commented on it after I posted though. So I guess no one else recognized the significance in the summary. Which is good.

That reminds me. I haven't provided a manga summary of episode 13 yet. I wonder if anyone in the anime thread cares?

Spoiler for about what you guys are discussing:
So you've decided to click on the spoiler ^^". Well, I shouldn't have decided to check out the LJ comm either because now I know there's a member who's read all the novels and manga vols and is offering free spoilers with 40+ replies. I managed to stop myself by the third reply (I've learned nothing new yet!) but now I'm tortured...

Just as an aside... Has the author released all the novels? Are we close to the ending? And also...

Spoiler for vol 8 and Naru's current stat:

Hmm... and I haven't read your spoiler (am trying not to give in to temptation) so my comment may not mean much.

Spoiler:


You know the ending then? Um... I don't wish to be spoiled, but I'd like to know, does it tie up all the loose ends or is it the kind that leaves you hanging?

LOL White Manju Bun, were you teasing yourself? If I wanted to torture myself, I'd do what you did with eyes closed, stop randomly and force myself to look at whatever spoiler ends up in front of me.
