Didn't really notice it was short to be honest.

I have seen worse monthly mangas that most of the time even waste their 15 pages, like new prince of tennis.
Atleast this chapter had a nice atmosphere surrounding it.

I think it was nice.
Toru is not always the one with all the right answers. Nice one, Tokita.

Meh chapter... Short and not much really going on. Not a fan of the implied pairing between Asahi and Tokita.

They were making a drama CD at the time (released with last month's issue). The announcements emphasized that the manga's scenario author wrote it himself, so I'm guessing this isn't common.

Agreed. In fact as of now even the Hijiri x Kuga pairing feels kinda forced to some points (though, that pairing kinda looks like it's going to have some fun developments and the like).

.... So, in the end anything but Toru x Koyuki, Toru x Hijiri or Toru x Tokita feels unnatural

i'd prefer a Hijiri x Asahi...

they seem to understand each other and get along well, and i'm a fan of a bestfriend/lover kind of relationship

Spoiler for c25:


I dunno... Hijiri and Kuga have more in common than they look. They're really good observers who passively understand their friends more than any other.

I feel like Toru will never get in a real relationship in the series. He knows full well that any girl who publicly goes out with him will get dragged hard (with him) through the mud and he won't have any of that.

Kuga X Hijiri, a forced relationship? Hell no, I think they are suited for each other. In fact, too well...if you asking me.

I thought there would be a Tokita x Kuga relationship during the Iris Hunter arc. Then Hijiri turned out to be the one who rescued her instead.

Agreed, on all counts. But Toru starting the relationship is likely a obstacle and a possible arc for the series, and I'm sure everyone following the series loves Toru and Kouyuki together, another perfect couple.

Other hinted couples are actually very fitting given the authors talents at connecting the dots in relationships and individuals I trust the pairings he chooses.

Toru & Kouyuki is probably one of only few couples in a manga that's a main couple and that I approve of. Usually I root for the other girl, who's actually not just good looking airhead with blond hair.

P.S. Yandere Koyuki is what I want in the coming chapter.

Oh yeah, and I meant to say: She called Tokita "that glasses kid" despite knowing about him all these years, but by the end of day 1, she calls Hijiri by his first name (instead of Shinozuka).

Okay, I want to see some real Iris stuff now.

EDIT: HAHAHAHA. BEST MOM EVER.

BEST MoM obviously can see the glasses kid isn't capable enough to protect Kuga.

Na. While at the end of Volume 2 I thought that Tokita x Kuga was set in stone, later in the author's words they went out of their way to tell us that they don't see each other as potential love interests, so that pairing was literally written out of the story.

Thus, between a guy that is stuck as a friend with her daughter and a guy that seems to be a potential suitor, the mom obviously would put more attention to the new guy flashy cute guy.

Thx for the summary btw
