I'm planning on reading them on my iPad from a manga reading website for free. Why pay when it's free online??

I agree that Urabe & Tsubaki are "learning" each other properly. It's a decent model for modern courtship instead of the "rush to bed" dating most teens go through today wherein the relationships often wind up in failure.

I felt this same sentiment awhile ago also. Urabe's a good example in particular for young girls to follow (other than the spit offerings) in that she's a decent girl, albeit a bit eccentric. And Tsubaki is an average awkward teenager.

Although the manga's may prove me wrong I like the way the anime represents modern courtship in general.

One of the "author's notes" sections of the manga talks about this very thing. Ueshiba-sensei talks about how he feels there it too much of a rush to physical intimacy with today's teens. This story is about the joys of a pre-sexual relationship and the wonderful highs and lows and incredibly intense sexual tension such a relationship brings.

I've watched the first 10 eps and enjoyed them very much, but I'm not sure I want to see 12 or 24 more where they just hold hands and stick fingers in each other's mouths.

Um, to pay the author for their time and effort? Do we all work for free? Probably won't change any minds...

I see where you're comming from hpulley. But in this real world we don't always get paid for what we do. How many salesmen have you ever talked to and received advice and information on products or services and then went elsewhere for those goods and services because it was either cheaper or free. The authors of mangas know their works won't always pay, but it must be worth it in some ways for the authors to continue doing what they do. However I do pay Crunchyroll for their services and I hope in some way that indirectly supports manga artists. As long as manga reading sites are free, legal and ethically in accordance with manga creators then for now I'll access manga in this way.

I'm interested then which free legal manga Site you know. Is it ad supported? Does Kodansha supply translations?

Episode 11



Battle of the temptations! Anger, lust, and jealousy runs high in this episode picking up from last time. But more than that, pain and the past comes. Anyways, fan-service went off the charts this ep LOL:

I don't understand the whole drool fetish thing, but I still continue to watch it whenever a new episode comes out. I think if someone offered me to taste their drool I would probably walk in the opposite direction.

Yes, it is a bit of a yodare fetish but there are more interesting bodily fluid fetishes around in manga and anime... And even live action Japanese horror!

To Lorreen

To be honest, the ecchi in me was looking for a reason to say there was a underlying erotic significance to the "hair messing" in ep 9. But besides the fact that a scalpe message feels good, I'm at a bit of a loss to find eroticsm in it.

Perhaps to say that messed up hair looks like "just got out of bed hair" or"after sex " hair might be possible .

Considering this is a 12 episode series then things better pick-up fast to bring a climatic ending or it could end flat with finally a kiss between Urabe & Tsubaki , or it may be dragged out for a season 2 release.


Helluva busy couple of weeks at work have kept me away from my Crunchyroll, so latish response now that I'm all caught on my regular watching including MGX.

I think the eroticism has to do with how it's treated in the context of the show. I mean, in real life I wouldn't find anything especially sexy about the hair-mussing action in most contexts, but then I wouldn't find drool licking a turn-on either, yet that's explicitly defined as intimate and special and a way of communicating sexual feelings in MGX. The hair-mussing is rather called out in the show as having some erotic significance--the blushing, the repeated assertions (Urabe to Tsubaki and Oka, and Oka to Ueno) that it feels good, the reaction of Oka when she tasted Urabe's drool communicating the hair-mussing, the way she asked Ueno to do the same to her, her reaction when he does, and that she commented "Those two are doing some kinky stuff," all contributed to a certain sizzle.

Anyway, two episodes later and I am really liking the show and Urabe a lot. Except for that stupid trope where girls feel entitled to slap guys around for "peeking" even when the peeking is obviously accidental and caused by the girls' own actions. I hate seeing that.

Anyway, the hole point of the story is the relationship development. There is not any kissing, but there is plenty of ... other stuff ... that has already occurred in the first 10 eps, and more that happens later in the manga, including some very sweet moments.
