Fun, light chapter after several intense ones. Really enjoying the series.

Indeed. I love it when mangakas use the omakes to make fun of themselves.

For chapter 21, It was likely Toru had a crush on Koyuki too but nice to see it definitely confirmed.

Because they can already see that people without Iris will have it hard and want a better "up and comer" for their daughter?

Yet another fantastic chapter. I can't get enough of this manga, and hopefully it does indeed get an anime one day.

Anyways, the funniest event from 21 has to be Yuki and Kuga's expression when they see the cause of the fire in the kitchen. It only made it better when they were trying to make sense of it afterwards (the wall of text in the background, VERY funny).

The rest of it was just the usual non-stop flood of cute and awesome known as Iris Zero.

I'm glad I had patience and waited til the Kuga arc ended before going into it lol. It saved me from much wailing and gnashing of teeth indeed. Chapter 21 was a much-needed depressurizer. The manga is balancing heavy subject matter with a gentler, sweeter side (literally sweet in one of the side chapters XD), and it very much needed a break.

Albeit it completely surprised me by shipping Asahi x Tokito and Kuga x Hijiri instead of the other way around. Seen it coming, I did not!

Still can't get over the fact that the students in general are a bunch of horrible bastards though. Kuga herself is completely forgivable (d'aww), in fact the way it worked out it's Tokita's and Koyuki's goodwill gone wrong pushing her over the edge -- and she just happen to have very sharp claws for the lashing out against the world part. But the way everyone else bullies Toru and get away with no remorse is kind of pissing me off.

It caught me of guard too! But to be honest, I really like it.

I'm fine with it as well; all the main characters are nice (although early possibilities of Kuga becoming a rival to Koyuki might be missed by some quarters...like the posters in this thread who don't like Koyuki very much).

Although I am of the opinion that the ideal romantic polygon should really be KugaAsa and TokiHiji.

The best example of Kuga using it would be with that boy she liked. Her iris lets her see others' emotions. By continually reading and manipulating the person's emotional state she was able to make them too scared to use their iris.

Does that answer the question well enough?

Some people pointed out the significance in Kuga x Hijiri in that after cutting off her pigtails Kuga now looks like Tachibana, the girl who Hijiri swore but failed to protect. It's like he's getting a second chance at making his destiny. I want to see him prove his worth though, because so far he's at best a soundboard and advisor for Toru's strategy.

i got this vibe too.

so basically, iris hunting is traumatizing people into not using their iris. thanks for explaining guys.

I thought Kuga cut off her hair so that it would look nothing like Koyuki's.

It's just a thing that girls do, at least in fiction, though it happens in real life too. Changing their image if they are dumped.

Yeah, that's what I thought. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with Hijiri.

It definitely had nothing to do with Hijiri.
And I don`t think Kuga ever meet Hijiri`s old flame and neither she knows what happen back then.
She did it for herself.

Koyuki is rich... Can`t say I`m surprised. Toru can`t catch a break.

Loved pages 16 and 17. The guys make a cooking disaster and look totally calm and oblivious. And the girls are thinking "...what."

...what were they planning to do with those eggs? There were almost twenty in that bowl. And Tokita was cracking more.
