For the record, when I say advantage, I don't mean it in the sense that she has any nefarious schemes in mind or anything of the sort, I'm simply saying that she has information that only she's privy to atm and can use it for either helping Aqua or improving her own standing with regard to their relationship just to give a couple examples.
You don't know whether it's an advantage, because Aqua may or may not want others to know in the first place.

Second, I think Aqua's awareness is extremely important, because again, a relationship goes both ways. If he doesn't know she knows, then her standing isn't going to improve from his perspective. A relationship doesn't work like a galge where only one side's actions matter.

Do you think Akane suddenly earned points for that hug when Aqua has no idea what it was for?

I wasn't expecting Aqua to confide in Akane this much, even if he was speaking in hypotheticals. Besides the reincarnation aspect, Akane knows pretty much everything about him now.

I'm honestly surprised Aqua opened up so much to her. I've seen a few people wonder if their joke about boyfriends saving their girlfriends from deaths is supposed to be a possible death flag, but I don't really think Akane is going to die.

New chapter out.

A wild Ruby appeared. Too bad for her that the chapter did not even focus on her, but instead on Melt. The dude really does want to redeem himself for his last bad performance.

Ruby saying that she would lose respect for Aqua if he got a girl pregnant makes sense and is the first time we've seen Ruby with such a serious expression.

Good thing Kana is there to pick Aqua's slack, because Ruby really does need someone to look after her if she couldn't tell that guy was a playboy.

Although she's not aware of the whole story, Ruby seems to hate her father as well for getting a teenage Ai pregnant and abandoning her.

I read this now after binging it. Chapter 9 hit hard. And since then it's been a rollercoaster watching these various creators and actors go about their lives.

To be fair, I didn't expect Kana gaining importance until she returned years later.

And new chapter is out and opens with the love interests taking snipes at each other. And then one of them handed ammo to Kana, so of course she was going to hammer it in. Play time though.

Just when you thought you will get a 2-way fight, we got the 3rd one from nowhere aka Melt VS senpai.

Kana got her hands on the best ammo she could have possibly dreamed of to use against Akane. This made me wonder why they have hated each other since they first met given that Akane admired Kana, but Aqua's flashbacks made me remember how insufferable Kana was as a kid.

It's nice that the reason those two hate each isn't (just) Aqua. Romance series where the heroines' relationships aren't defined by the MC are rare.

So Aqua is using his trauma of Ai in order to bring out his emotions.

I can't say I'm happy with this development, since it doesn't make sense to be willingly triggering PTSD for acting when by nature trauma isn't something you can control in the first place.

Aqua is already breaking into a sweat. I'm sure Akane will cover for him, but what is he going to do when there's are lines that don't require him to be having a panic attack?

So yeah, they are really pushing Melt in this chapter.

Thank you, nepotism. I guess this chapter reminding us how the real world works. Having a good talent or looks alone is not enough to strive. You need luck and connection too.

It will be hilarious if Melt ended up having more screentime than Ruby in the future.

It's good to see Melt getting his chance at a redemption arc. Funny enough, he's grown on me too and therefore that conversation between the producer and casting director both growing to like him just hits different.

Melt is such a Chad.

And made almost all female audiences wet themselves in the end of the chapter.
