So I went back and read through the whole series again. The manga is much more palatable when read in one go-through than weekly. I still felt the Tokyo arc was very weak compared to the rest of the manga, mostly because of all the doom and gloom that seemed to surround it.

However, now that I've actually read the full translation, I can still say I don't really like Eba. Her secrets and lies hurt both Haruto and Kazama and I think it's a testament to them that they stayed friends throughout. Not to say Eba was the only one at fault. Haruto and Kazama did their share as well, with Kazama using the dying card and Haruto's blindly chasing Eba. I still believe Eba gets the most, though, because it's obvious she's hiding a lot behind her expressions and her refusal to open up caused a lot of this in the first place.

Haruto giving up on Eba permanently at the end was probably the best thing he could have done and I just wish it didn't take him 30 chapters to realize it. He himself even said he was just desperate and didn't really love her as much. Of course, that didn't make reading through it any less depressing or torturous.

I like what's going on with Asuka right now. It seems like Nanami has given up (the poor girl) and I'm going to enjoy the Asuka x Haruto while I can if it happens, because you know that as soon as Eba comes back, either Haruto is going to hiccup or Seo's going to do a repeat of Honoka and have Asuka dump him out of insecurity.

Seo should pull a Makoto Shinkai and blow everyone's minds.

Oh hai, this was the story of Haruto's first love (and second, third, forth, and fifth). What a bittersweet story! Fast forward into the future and he's alone-- oh sweet youth.

Spot-on But Eba can make a miraculous come back - all she need is a pair of scissors to cut her hair short.

I know it will definitely be an Eba route end when Eba makes her return with a short hair look

and frankly the possibility is quite high

Seo's obsession about short hair girl can be scary

Hah I've been saying it all along. When eba makes her return, it's going to be with short hair. And then Haruto has no choice but to chase after her.

He'll probably flip flop things and have Eba chase Haruto. In doing so makes Asuka feel insecure and she drops Haruto like a bad habit because of it. From then on we continue down the final arc of Haruto and Eba making babies ever after...

Short hair Eba = Good bye to asuka XD

Maybe in order to deal with his fetish (read: compulsion neurosis) he actually draws Eba with short hair while his editor secretly makes an assistant add some more length

...and none of you can prove me wrong

lol in that case I would think he would draw all the girls with short hair and have assistants draw em longer after

Man that must be such a hassle.

@Waven

No wonder Eba got demoted then...

This is because one day he bought his own manga and he saw the long hair Eba!!!

And at this very moment, he is fighting to change Eba's hair style back to his liking (Which we all know what it is )

From how Nanami's been acting lately, it seems she's finally over Haruto. I doubt she'll try to start something with him.

So which chick hasn't yearned for Haruto's bones yet?

His sister? When are we going to get to the incestuous part?

I forget, the amount of females gets a bit staggering.

His sister, his mom, and (maybe) Kiyomi (if that was her name - the girl who was in favor of surgery). Just about every other girl is part of the harem one way or another.

Ok, well he can (figuratively / literally) bang out his Mom and sister (hasn't stopped Japan before), and Kiyomi is just waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of his league. Completely. He needs a space elevator to be able to just look up at her.

Even a certain bike rider was out of Kiyomi's lead. Kiyomi should stay single forever so we can keep seeing those glorious onsen scenes!
