Why’s Hori in heels on the title page? I mean, I know it’s quite common to dress characters up in outfits they don’t wear otherwise on chapter title pages, but they kinda look like they’re wearing their school uniforms otherwise. Though I guess it’s a bit hard to tell for sure what they’re wearing with those postures.

Gah, this is kinda painful. They’re both trying to judge by how they should act by watching how the other acts, while simultaneously putting on a poker face.

How exactly did it come up in conversation between Sengoku and Ishikawa that Hori doesn’t like stew? (Also, stew is such a weird thing to not like, and not in the sense of “I can’t believe you don’t like stew”, but more in the sense that “stew” is such a non-specific thing to not like. It covers a range of dishes. It’s like saying you don’t like sandwiches.)

How can you be sure? :stuck_out_tongue:

Basing it on their relative heights.

Unless they’re both wearing heels.

I’m not willing to rule that out.

Well, today I learnt にの しの ろの やの as a way of counting in twos. According to Google, と comes next.

Why’s it embarrassing for high schoolers to claim a free ice cream, though? What’s wrong with you people?

3 Likes

simply too 子供っぽい, they have not learned to be liberated from these inhibitions for the sake of free ice cream

Good to finally get to see some 桜 in this ch

Sez who, though? What a world we live in where adult cannot claim free ice cream.

Whole thing is just them talking over homework.

Why’re はい and やめてください considered 敬語<, though?

2 Likes

I think はい is the formal version of うん and ええ, as well as やめてください of やめろ or やめて/やめてくれ, but might be wrong

1 Like

Well yes, but surely that’s just 丁寧語 level rather than 敬語.

Oh, a whole-chapter flashback.

I dunno why, but I’ve never really liked Shindo. Something about him rubs me the wrong way…

Can’t remember if it’s ever been established where this series is set, but on page 123, there’s both a 片桐町 and a 八阪町 in the outskirts of Osaka

He seems like a nice guy so far, ignoring prejudice and making friends with miyamura. I’m assuming we are being introduced to him because he will show up in the present though, so I save my final judgment for that moment
