Anyhoo... I hope that helps. ^_^

BTW, Lililicious is currently scanning this and they are caught up to the current chapter, I believe.

Fumi isn't like that. She a very pragmatic person who would not waste her time thinking about things if she can do something about it. Every time you see her absorbed in her thoughts, it's because she believes she can't do anything at the moment.

Regardless...
Spoiler:


Besides, you should remember Aoi Hana is not your typical manga. It wants to be more realistic than that, and things like Yasuko and Fumi starting going out just like that, without any kind of stereotypical manga confessions of love are meant to create this feeling of realism...

Let's bump this thread a bit with my post about Fumi in Faster than Love (chapter 25):

I gotta agree about Chapter 25. It was nicely done.

On another note, I really like the little side stories that come out with each volume. While some focus on the other Sugimoto sisters, I like the ones about Orie-san and Hinako-san. I found them very interesting and their story is surprisingly optimistic (so far). I was pretty thrilled to see them in the actual chapters.

New chapters are coming out now. I honestly can't tell if we're in the middle of a story or if it's beginning to wind down. I'm really curious about Kyoko, it's obvious she's trying to hide from family issues by spending more time with him but do you think the affection is just her trying to escape or is it genuinely more than just a friendship to her now?

Heh, I found the thread. A lil late, though.

Finally, Aoi Hana manga turned out boring for me, but i'll keep reading it.

It's been quite a while. Does anyone know if releases in Japan actually stopped, or just the translators have been delayed?

I really hope Fumi and Ah-chan can resolve the current discomfort. I'm a little torn about it- I'd love for them to get together, since I've always been a sucker for the childhood friends thing. However, I'd also be happy if Ah-chan doesn't end up having those kinds of feelings for Fumi, but remains her best friend.

They have such a great and nuranced friendship, it's really one of the things I love about Shimura's mangas.

People still reading this? I hope so, because chapter 34 is seriously good.

Spoiler for Chapter 34:
