I only realized it was her on the cover when she started crying in the middle of the volume! I wasn’t sure which character it is earlier, thought that maybe it’s Mei or Mogumo
Btw, I really enjoyed cover talk in atogaki, I like such snippets of interesting production info.
Scene at the cafe felt like a feast at the end of the shounen manga arc (okay, such victory-celebrating feasts aren’t restricted to shounen manga only, but it was my first association)
Kotone, well, I’m still grumbling about her and I wonder if I’ll warm up to her before the end of the series.
I also have two questions:
#1 (page 148) Is she saying that one day she wants to be as good in using デパート cosmetics? Why デパート cosmetics in particular, why not just cosmetics? At first I was thinking I’m missing something and maybe it’s about working in デパート as a cosmetics seller, but I think I’m overthinking it.
#2 (page 161) Is Kotone reminding Mogumo when the trash is being collected? Isn’t this something that Mogumo should remember very well already? Here I also started wondering if I’m overlooking something and I started creating bonus scenarios (like, maybe Kotone is saying she will collect trash personally for whatever reason yes I know it doesn’t make sense)
