I don't get it either.

My best guess is...

…that the pose is like a rapper-type pose with メーン being “men” as explained here:

メーンの意味って何?【練マザのD.Oがよく言うセリフ】 | HIPHOP脳アジト

However, I feel like I’m probably missing something.

This is clearly meta-commentary by the author saying “I know, it isn’t funny” hahaha

Huh. I just noticed the back covers tell a story.

What happens next? Well, that would be a spoiler, wouldn’t it.

メーン!

This chapter not exactly packed with strenuous dialogue. :stuck_out_tongue: Though, those looks of horror on Yui and Kotoha’s faces. Heh.

I’ve been through a typhoon in Japan. Spent the worst of it in my hotel, and it honestly didn’t seem too bad when I stuck my head out the window a few times, but I discovered a landslide near the hotel a couple of days later, evidence of significant flooding in Utsunomiya a few days after that, and much of the Hokuriku shikensen fleet was flooded. Also experienced a 傘意味ない moment here in Australia - I was out at a street market event when it abruptly started raining so hard that the raindrops were going clean through the umbrella.

Incidentally, the banner in the second panel is for the National Museum of Western Art. Don’t think I’ve mentioned that. Wondering if their hideout is nearby.
