It's not like there isn't good foundation for Fumino, but I feel like it could end as trainwreck nonetheles. Well Tsutsui is decent writter so I hope I worry needlesly.

I'm very interested to see where the Fumino arc will start, before or after graduation.

Well, the Rizu route came to a close.

Just like her character, it's uneven as a whole. Has some high points, but can't maintain it throughout since her biggest enemy, "spotlight steal" played a major role again. Wish it could have maintained her last few chapters in quality from the original story, where she kept better and better.

Speaking of which, I think I kind of figured out what was bugging me. If I ignore Uruka and Fumino giving up, the atmosphere is still standard BokuBen, not BokuBen - Rizu edition. These 9 chapters could have spread sporadically with other heroine chapters inbetween and you wouldn't really notice the difference. Hence Sekijou getting her chapters is a thing. Hopefully, the subsequent routes are more tightly-written.

Finally, where in the world is Rizu's mom? (Chapter 36) She exists, her father mentioned in at one point in the manga, something with both of them going to the neighbourhood association, but for some reason, she is non-existent.

Ending was good (although I was sad for Misao passing) but yeah, Rizu showed another time her weakness as a character and her inability to carry the story on her own, even when she is supposed to be the undisputed protagonist.

at last.. the torture is over
If you really want Misao to be significant, don't make her disappeared suddenly like that, Tsutsui!!!
Just when I'm curious about her past, you removed her casually

next should be senpai route, right?
from now on, only my favorite girls' will be featured.. excited for it

Forgot to mention one thing: Generally, I would say people want more of a dating life story/route than how they will hook up route. The festival shadow is a permanent element, so unfortunately I think all of the penultimate chapters will be the hook ups, while tiptoing for 7 chapters before reaching that point.

Tbh Uruka and Rizu were my least fav girls and this route was painful to read at times.

Starting next week it's fumino at least her interactions with Naruyuki are actually FUN.

That's just ill Fumino supporter mentality. I'm basing this on /r/, but to them, Fumino appearing on one page in anyone's chapter is considered stealing the spotlight from them. To them, Fumino had the most meaningful interactions with Nariyuki without any doubt, using the jealousy chapters as examples. SMH.

Fumino in general mimicks Nariyuki a lot when they are together, or the opposite, producing the same reactions. That's why she was called female Nariyuki. It's certainly can be called good chemistry, but that's really it. Nariyuki is more comfortable with Fumino if he can Masterzone her. Not anymore in her route.

It should be also noted that once Yuiga learned read some cues and he didn't need her advice , their interactions basically stopped.

And it goes full alternative timeline. Which is great because retconing not just final arc, but also main story solidify those "what if" routes as non-canon

In other hand development unfortunately feel quite forced which is shame, I thought Tsutsui can do better if it's not Rizu.

Spoiler for pics+summary:

Fumino stealing one of Uruka's best moments lol.

I like that this is happening before Uruka's route and not another time skip like the Rizu route. Would have felt too repetitive if he did the same thing but with different heroine. This actually makes 3/5 kinda unpredictable, of course Fumino will be the winner but it'll be interesting to see how it all unfolds.

Just hope we get over with the denial as soon as possible.

Based on this, my first guess is an alternate Chapter 136 as the final. Denial being a thing, Uruka and Rizu will be written completely passive and they will fold knowing they didn't do anything, while Fumino was there for listening to Nariyuki's trouble and vice-versa. The Masamune route without the last chapter.

Rizu's story and arc in the series overall may not have been too balanced. But I still honestly liked her character. So overall I enjoyed this route for her and how it wrapped up. At the very least she had a great time .

Glad to keep on going with the next one. Since I liked most of the cast it'll be fun to roll through each of these.

Ah, so because of the jinx she stopped being in denial much sooner.

Though the guilt is still strong

Fumino chapters are good in comedy as always, the part where it took her one page to realize Nariyuki was there was hilarious.

Good to have Mafuyu cuteness so early in the route, I hope we see more of her here compared to 2/5.

Nice start for Fumino's route. With Nariyuki basically being her butler there will be plenty of occasions for them to be embarrassed and develop their feelings, and if the arc will take place mainly in her house there is no risk of having other characters meddle too much.
The critical part is still the denial thing, she is aware that she is in love with Nariyuki but she is still holding back. This would probably need a talk with Rizu and Uruka, and I hope this won't be dragged until the last chapter. There is also the chance that Nariyuki will be the one to confess and that would be the decisive push for her.

I'm smelling the controversy already, so not good, Tsutsui, not good.

There is no denial about Fumino's feelings, so at least that shouldn't hinder the progress. But the guilt about Uruka and Rizu is alive and kicking.

Basically, we should assume that ONLY Fumino is aware that they are gunning for the same guy, so it creates the whole moral issue. On top of that, this Fumino is making conscious moves on Nariyuki, the festival shadow may as well be considered as backstabbing, if the setup about her being the love councelor that listens and supports her friends is the same. Uruka and Rizu are guilt free, unless Tsutsui says otherwise, because they should think only themselves have feelings for Nariyuki, the other two are just friends.

So Fumino made this into a self-made problem AGAIN, which a honest girl-to-girl talk could have easily solved prematurely, but she instead doubles down, then comes the excuses, guilt about their friendship.

Given how Tsutsui did the foldings so far, I expect this as another unsatisfying one. I understand that people felt cheated, when Rizu and Fumino didn't confess in the original route, but at that time, it was already obvious that Nariyuki was in love with Uruka. Her encouraging talk prevented the guilt issues that could have arisen from Fumino's kissing attempt. The Rizu route's resolution was criminally stupid. In this one, I can already feel that Fumino will be portrayed as the victim, the others will feel bad about their passive approaches or how they took Fumino's support for granted without paying attention to her suffering from the guilt, or something like that. Surprise me, Tsutsui.
