Summary from onemanga

"Shinjou Shouryuu is a healthy 17 year old high school boy. Many of his kouhais wonder why such a great guy doesn't have a girlfriend. Ask him and he'll tell you that between school, work, and saving his kouhais from bullies doesn't leave him much time to go on dates. So he instead goes online to "F.I.L. GATES". There in the chat room his alter-ego, Kakeru, is infatuated with the girl called Hal. Hal sends a message reminding him that Sunday will be the 6 month anniversary of when they first met (online) and that she wants to meet him in person! And let's just say it's not your typical first date."


This is another example of a very interesting manga that is unfinished From the few chapters that i read (only 8 were released...) i found it pretty original for a slice of life / romance manga and what i like the most about it is the innocent yet strong love the 2 protagonists of this story have between them and it is as if they fell in love the first time they found each other on that chat room but it took almost a year for them to realize it.

This looked interesting so I decided to check it out, curretly getting the first volume. Now to answer the question of whether this is still ongoing or not.. well it is. It's published in a monthly manga magazine Sunday Gene-X along with other titles like Black Lagoon. Looking for raws of the manga I see up to chapter 20 available.

New chapter out!

It's getting interesting. Confession(s)! What's a nice boy's to do? And there is a really funny twist inside Kakeru's household.

Thanks for the update, Irenicus. I had only just started reading this manga on the weekend and seeing the update history I wasn't too confident about seeing another release for a while.

Cheers.

This is a really interesting series. I'm glad Mio wasn't like Aira, since I thought she would be, especially when they went to the second offline meeting thing.

Just picked up this series and really enjoy it. I loved Shin and Haruka's relationship at the start it was funny as hell, some crazy stuff really.
But after thay broke up(did they really break up?) its not so interesting, I felt but the rest of what goes on is entertaining enough.

Shin and Haruka are a great together and hope they get back together!

I think they pretty much got forgotten about...

I do agree with Bonta though that the series was alot stronger before this tripe love triangle crap came up...I love watching them fight together, both against others and themselves, so I'm hoping we can ditch this arc soon and get them back together...Something like a semi-episodic structure where they handle the online/offline detective stuff while giving some chapters to their relationship development would be nice.

Agree with you there. The confessions were fun, but the aftermath...not so much. The new girl's way too clingy. Lady, he has a girlfriend he loves! Get your panties in order please and don't tempt a nice guy that way. Kakeru too needs a good epiphany slap. You don't two-time when you've got a great girlfriend like Haruka, you horny bastard.

Plus, I've never been a fan of love triangles. So not the drama!


Uh, anyway, which manga is in your avatar and sig, Kimichi? The art style's very familiar for some reason yet I can't figure out the name...

I just found out about this a few hours before XD looks like it's not scanlated weekly.. too bad for a manga with a good plot/art.

Looks like this triangle non-sense is going to continue with a *GASP* new misunderstanding...bah. Heres hoping it gets cleared up soon I can only stomach the perpetually frail "damsel in distress" third wheel for so long.

Well ch 13 I guess marks a new start for our duo which I'm a little sad about cause I loved how their relationship went before.
Having seen the raws I don't see much happening at all but hopefully that changes at some point.
