We waited two months for that? Seriously, I was expecting something to actually happen this chapter. And it seemed much shorter than usual...

I don't understand what's going on, but it seems like Hachi and Takumi's relationship continues to undergo strain. Hachi was thinking about Reira at one point, right? I don't know who the heck Hachi is gonna end up with. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if she hooks up with that reporter Kurata. He seems to like her, and he kinda looks like Asano (her first boyfriend). I'm joking, of course...mostly.

Actually I really likedthis chapter. I don't know, but this chapter really touched and broke my heart. My eyes starting getting watery when Nana O was having one her attacks. I loved how Nobu and Hachi were trying to help her (Hachi & Nobu were both holding hands). But my favorite part was definitley when Hachi gave mouth to mouth (and not because if looked lezbianic and if it did, who cares), because the love Hachi has for Nana O. is so deep. That's the thing about hachi, once she giver her love to someone she definitley gives all of her love and never holds back on it. I can totally see why she's so maternal. She's willing to do anything for that person, it's too bad that Takumi and Shouji couldn't handle her loving nature. Takumi definitley has been disappointing me these last few chapters, but I don't know what to do about him. I thought it was shady how he just left Hachi (still need to read the scans). Hachi is his wife and so they should of been together in this time of grieving. Dude, she even went back to their home to be with him and he still ditched her. It's pretty obvious that he just thinks of himself and Reira, and that hachi's feelings are second. But all he focuses on Hachi and the business, and he just forgets about everything else.

Overall, I liked the chaper. Hachi and Nobu just really touched my heart, especially Hachi. I feel so bad for Nana O. I totally feel her pain, I want to cry with her. I also thought it was cute how Shin and Nana O. were resting on Hachi's shoulders in the beginning of the chapter.

I can't wait for the English scans.

I did like how Hachi gave Nana mouth-to-mouth. That moment was the one part I appreciated in the chapter; Hachi is really stepping up and being a great support in her friend's time of need. It's good to see her being the strong one.

I guess I just was expecting more movement on the overall story front, since we didn't have a chapter in January.

Yeah, I can understand the impatience. I think it's because we've read a couple of flashforwards and everything is almost coming together, and we're waiting for that huge climax scene to see how everything leads up to the present. Anticipation is a headache, and patience is a hard virtue once it comes to nana.

I liked this chapter since everyone has stopped crying and finally in their own ways trying to move on with their lives. Everyone except Nana I guess, which is normal.

The only disparity I noticed in Ai's drawings is the engagement ring on Nana O.'s hand. Usually she draws the ring on Nana's left hand; the first time she wore it to the press conference and even in the flash-forwards where the reporter took a picture of her singing in the bar with a wig. So why only in this chapter did Nana wear her ring on her right hand? Inconsistencies.

Yeah, I just read the first 20 pages. Anywayz, I think it's kind of random how Takumi and Hachi are concerned over the subscriptions. Who cares? It just seemed kind of pointless.

And I think it's funny how Takumi keeps mentioning that Hachi seems to be gaining weight instead of losing weight. I'm kind of confused. Aren't pregnant women suppose to gain weight? They are carrying a human being inside of them. Bu let's hypothetically believe that she's suppose to lose weight. As a result, maybe she's gaining weight because she's pregnant with two kids instead of one which will turn out to be Satsuki and Ren. I don't know...hopefully that's the main reason why she's not losing weight (I still find it ridiculous on why Takumi thinks she's suppose to lose weight instead of gaining it).

I want some HachixTakumi drama. Actually, I just want Hachi to give birth.

I haven't been too pleased with Takumi's attitude lately; it is weird he keeps harping on Hachi's weight, and he sure left for his private apartment fast. He needs some "time to himself"? Screw you, pal.

The subscription stuff was bizarre. Maybe it was just a convenient outlet for their frustrations? Grief can make people act randomly. Or it could have been just a symbol of how they are not communicating / getting along as a couple.

i wonder whats up with takumi lately as much as I love both takumiXhachi their attitudes towards each other has changed. They are somewhat distant from each other or maybe this is how a relationship is? After being with each other so long you grow used to each other and having nothing to say. That usually happens years after a couple is together I find it funny they are like this right now.
I want that damn child to be born already how much suspense can I possibly take!!!!!!! ladies lets not forget takumi is still wearing his wedding ring or atleast i think it is?
Man poor Nana O she looks like she doesn't care anymore about anything. what is she going to do now? what can she do? where is she going?

I totally think same as you since your first post in this thread. I'm both touched and broken with this chapter.

I try to understand them (HachixTakumi) because I love their pair, I wish I won't be broken heart at the end of this manga, please Ai yazawa sensei don't break my heart, I beg you . I think their conversations are pointless, just show how human (as couple) they are. Takumi thought why Hachi didn't lose her weight cause she cried and thought so much about the situation (maybe he knew she didn't eat well that meant he looked for her too *lol* quite impossible) and maybe it's a reason for twice children. Moreover, Takumi is still Takumi he changed a bit before for Hachi's sake then become himself after all, he isn't interest in something that is not concerned about his Trapnet or his business. I also try to understand (I used "try" because I wanted him to be more kind to Hachi) him that he is this sort of man, ever let Hachi stay alone and solve problem by herself and he will support her when there is nobody help her, that makes her to be strong because he knows that his business is tight himself (he wants that) so he can't be always with her when she needs him. Maybe I'm too optimistic to view on him like this.

I want to see some dramatic scenes between them as well and of course whether how much they still love each other or not love, and want to know about their (twice?) children. I'm trying not to care whoever Hachi will end up with now, but sure if it isn't Takumi I will be broken heart and depress so much. Even though we see some flash-forward but it doesn't prove anything (everything can change), just hope Ai sensei won't break plot line by making Nana is too much tragedy.

All in all for this chapter, I'm really despondent with Nana O and sympathetic on her (I don't want to see this situation any longer in next chapter), she really deserves to be happy at the end. I'm impress with Nobu action, hope there is a way for him maybe with Hachi he deserves too (but I don't want). Why is Nana getting more tragedy for me? :tears:
