Anyway, This chapter was great! Mugi not keeping a difference between rich and poor was so touching, I love people like those.

Ui was creepy..

Although not clearly visible (it's like a painting), we could see her father, mother and herself. IIRC, her mother also has blonde hair. But both of this only occured in the anime.
- IIRC, Mio's mother never appeared, but she had a speech bubble in the manga, calling Mio. (The chapter where Ritsu wanted Mio teach her, but Mio rejected her, and Ritsu got in through Mio's room through the window )
- Ritsu and Azusa's parents was never shown.

I don't know whether Azusa's childhood will be seen or not (but let's just hope so). Up till now, she doesn't seem to have anyone who spent the childhood with her (see my previous post about this pattern).



I thought the manga clearly stated that she's originally from Austria. She seemed to be born in Japan since she said that Kotobuki family brought her family very long time ago, and the relationship between the two families started long before she was born.
Oh thank you! wow Austria!

Sumire seems to be not all that clear on the details...Azusa and Jun are "super" curious about it all. Ui seems indifferent due to her "sisterly love" fixation. I guess she's going through withdrawls with Yui gone for the last three months. Sawako seems to have known...at least in part the entire time. Nao is monitoring....

Mugi might know about her family's relationship with Sumire's family more than Sumire does, but it might be from before her time as well. Or she might not actually care, considering how she acts most of the time seems to indicate she'd rather be "normal"...but has proven to be very knowledgable about historical things (such as when they went to Kyoto).

I wonder what Yui's group are going to do in the soon coming College chapter? Cause now they have a bar to match in storytelling.

I'm thinking the next college chapter will be centred on the Gang of Girls again. It's all introductions at this point. I'm thinking it will be a Ayame / RItsu centred chapter.

also: (speculating) Mugi's mother could be German / Austrian / western european.

We've been thinking that she's actually Finnish for the longest time, as it would explain all the trips to Finland that's been mentioned in the manga (and anime) so far.

Austria kind of blindsided us. All we've heard about is Finland from Mugi's travels, so we assumed there was some reason to go there as often as she does.

Hmm, I just noticed that Mugi's governess looks an awful like Megumi. Perhaps there's a connection there, and Mrs. Sokabe convinced Mugi to join her daughter in Sakura High...and eventually to N. Women's University.

And I have the feeling that SuMIIre isn't the only one supplying Mugi with manga.

I bet Tainaka household only have three family members: Ritsu, Satoshi, and their single parent father. And Mio is the only child, with both of her parents still alive.

And it seems Azusa is also the only child too.

(From the season 1 omake character cards)
Ritsu: Family of four. Both parents, Satoshi and herself.
Mio: Correct, family of three.
Azusa: Again, family of three.

I'm also curious as to why Kakifly pick Austria as Sumire's family origin. Compare to most EU countries, Austria seems pretty well off in terms of living standard and IT infrastructure despite being a small country if I'm not mistaken. I've never been there before, so I don't know for sure.

Here's my thought: The Saito family came to Japan in the 1920's, at the height of Japan's wealth before the bubble economy of the 1980's. There were plenty of high-class butlers/servants without work after the fall of Austria-Hungary, so it could be that the Kotobuki took the family to Japan with them.

I'm thinking the Barque elegance of Vienna was one reason Kakifly chose Austria.

i'm getting worried about the whole Ayame/Ritsu part. Ayame's just like a Ritsu clone with curls and bangs down only. though she highly lacked on Ritsu's leadership. But gahhh pairing them up is... is.... NOOO!!! MIO COME BACK!!

The previous Gang of Girls chap was on Akira, so I'm guessing it's Ayame's turn since she's more outspoken than Sachi... Unless there's a hidden reason for her height too. another mixblood?!

Lmao

I understand what you mean, no matter how similar they are, Mitsu needs to be prioritized. I can easily imagine Ritsu end up following Mio to work at the same place in the future despite later's initial protest.

As for next chapter, worry not, if my hunch is correct, Ayame/Ritsu already had their focus along with Sachi/Mio in the "fashion talk" chapter that's why author shift the focus to the two senpais in the latest college chapter. I'm speculating that next chapter will either focus on everyone and their summer activities similar to Azusa's gang Kyoto Trip or coming from the left field is Stalker-chan's centric chapter since two senpais just had their own chapter, so there is a good chance the author will go for her this time around. We shall see about that.

Back to Sumire and Mugi. It's a requirement of citizenship in Japan to have Japanese names. That's most likely the reason for their names.

Depends. I'm not sure that was the rule back in the 1920's which is probably the time the Saito family came over to Japan.


And I'm pretty sure the mods already did something about those timeline links before..... Why people don't read.

Both posts were by CaptnAwesomee, maybe he just didn't notice the old one had been deleted or something.
