I started reading this manga to be amused, not to become aggravated..

With the way the recent chapters have been going, it feels like a lot of the targeted audience for this series are going to start dropping it.

Well, the backlash is huge on 2ch but consider that

On the other hand, Magazine's target audience is towards the upper age end of the shonen demograph. The reason why we empathise or sympathise the main character(s) is because they are written well (and some what realistically). Lets see if these see will really lose its audience (by checking out its ranking on the magazine front covers for the next few weeks).

No, it was vague. But she did say something about trusting him, being betrayed and it hurts badly. To clear things up, those guys...

I think it was most likely consensual reading between the lines after what Yuki said. And although I dont think Shou is THAT shallow, I do think she gave in too easily and didnt even let herself evaluate her feelings for Utsumi. Anyways I always preferred Yuki, hopefully after this, they become alot more closer to each other and when the time comes for Yuki to trust in love again, I want Utsumi to be the man she falls in love with. But I feel really sad for Utsumi as the guy was maturing for his love and really gave it his all, nd just when Shou showed him the peaks of heaven, she mercilessly threw him down to the depths of hell.

I think after this Yuki will give him a chance with her and try again to fall in love. I mean she knows he's a good hearted guy so why not give him a chance what's to lose here? Then maybe afterwards Shou will get dumped by the guy she likes after he gets tired of doing her she'll see it was a mistake and that she should have gone with Utsumi instead but by then he'll have started to have feelings for Yuki. Your lost Shou.

Now while this is somewhat bound to happen I think it's too early for YukixUtsumi to take shape already, this series has just started after all, unless the author wants to show us countless break ups and make ups like some other retarded series I don't even wanna remember.

She a pretty decent, if inscure, person other than that.

At this stage, Yuki has more admiration for his character than romantic feelings. It will make more sense as the series gets translated.
Well , i get what you means . It's not surprising
For Yuki , i don't know yet . Wait for the others chapters .

man, shou's senpai looks like he could be Utsumi's elder brother, just look at #13 where the two are shown next to each other through panels, same hair and face . Not saying he could be his brother though, it just caught my eye.

about the chapter itself:

Probably due to the author having more practice in drawing girls than guys, her blog is full of drawings of girls. So Sempai looking like Utsumi is probably not too unusual, I will chalk it up to her style. Either that or "guys that look similiar" tend to appear around Shou's life. LOL

Yeah, it's a her.

To dispel a common misconception about this author, Sasuga Kei is actually a Sasaki Keiko. She is a 28 year old lady. She was shortlisted for the newcomer prize with "Find New Way" 2 years back and had her entry printed in Magazine Special. Then she won the Dragon Mangazine contest with the one shot "Smile Answer" In the same year, GE got serialised because the "Good Ending" oneshot was sorta epic and drawn alot of reponse

So yeah. I wish noone will call her a "him" again :P

I believe most of the character's emotions (especially the girls) are depicted relatively realistically because she is a lady. But that could be just me.

I had my suspicion the author being a woman and all. The story is just way too girly and naive to be considered made from a guy's point of view. Let's see if its gonna end up like Hatsu Limited or not aka being hacked early.
