Forced to head home like this, he runs into Aoi in town, but she doesn't recognize him and thinks he's a somewhat manly girl. Before he can leave, Aoi asks him to help her overcome a problem she's had for many years: an intense fear of men.

The art in this series is good, while the characters are extremely likeable, albeit simple. A simple enjoyable series just like a cup of morning tea.

I'm just here so I can contemplate suicide when the inevitable Botan heartbreak happens.

Ah-chan can have Itsuki, after she opened the forbidden yuri route this chapter
But, Botan will win Keitarou-senpai's heart, for sure...

I means... Ah-chan and Botan are friends, they should be able to share him through different clothing (and flavour) for themselves right? It's a win for everyone. No, one hurts. Everyone happy.

^While harem solves everything, it makes things look cheap.

It's not even isekai fantasy, even if no one loses, no one wins either. The drama results in nothing.

The cliche of main heroine will still win despite how overwhelmingly better later heroines must be ended now.

Look at To-Love Ru Darkness where Momo and Yami promoted into main heroines, I doubt people will demand Lala and Haruna back?

Currently at chapter 8, and I must say, I feel heavy reading this. Can't shake off the thought that something will go wrong which probably will.

Simple Characters, but they work well enough together (starting with chapter 5).
The developed Botan saved the Manga for me, Tokujira just wasn't interesting enough to carry this manga. Thanks to Botan the MCs personality had been portrayed better as well from vol 2 and onwards.
If I had started to read the Manga with just vol1 out, I most likely would have dropped it.

Looks like the story hit its peak of the good times in vol3 and the drama is about to start, if the manga-ka was serious with the guilt-symbolism.

Too bad we'll have to wait a while till the next release.

^Yeah, it was pretty stupid. They're not the usual translators, I think.

That escalated quickly, it's not about to get axed right?

Yepp this was "Subby-D Scanlations". I hope 'Hachimitsu Scans' will redo the translation once the volume is out.
But aside from bad language, what's worse is...

..this chapter confirms that he has no interest in Botan in a romantic way at all.
That devalues the build up quite a lot we have seen these past couple chapters.
Makes me sad. At least he values her enough to not keep lying. Though we don't know whether that is an exclusive feeling towards her or if he would be that 'nice' to everyone.

PS: there was one thing I didn't understand. what's a 'rad'? An online dictionary said it's colloquial for radical, but I can't remember a situation where that would apply to Keitarou.
Is there any other meaning or a scene where Botan could actually think that?

^I interpreted Keitarou's actions as him being guilty instead of having absolutely no interest in Botan. He kept dissing himself the whole chapter because he doesn't want Botan to get hurt by falling for a piece of shit like him. His current feelings for Tokujira is also a factor, I guess.

The usual scanlator are scanlating form the Tankōbon that probably will be released at February. Though, if you wanna read it monthly, there are threads that posted in /a/ with some anon translating it (sorry, don't have the links). Latest chapter is chapter 21.

Tho, I don't wanna spoil it. Personally, I don't see that it being axed.

Meanwhile, for those who haven't seen it, namo, the mangaka, is illustrating KyoAni's LN Manzai Senka. Here the PV:

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

I specified that disinterest for romantic feelings.
None of the inner thoughts were about reciprocating her feelings.
When he realisid that she looked always happy around him, there was no follow up whether he was happy as well or not
From the beginning to the end it was just to push her away without hesitation.

The only feeling from him we got was that it hurt to hurt her, he even had tears in his eyes. But since there was nothing that hinted to a romantic interest, it can just be interpreted as caring for a friend.
After all the build up it was a huge let down for me.
I didn't expect for him to switch his main focus to Botan right away (when 100% of the userbase here have decided who the best girl is, then he will realise that too), like get over with the situation and then just let Itsuki disappear.
But I wanted something. At least, a tiny bit.

Well there is still the possibility for a comeback of trust though, since he was that honest to completely unmask himself on the spot.
Botan has her parents to talk with to realise that only a good person would unmask himself so quickly. Tokujira has no one to help her.
I'm still going for sad ending or Botan ending, even if the complete lack of romantic feelings by him in this chapter is a setback.

Contact 24 has been published online. That makes it 7 chapters since volume 3, which matches the currently longest volume of the series (the second one). However I still couldn't find a release date for the fourth Volume.
Anyone knows more?
