I think that there was an error in translation somewhere.

In my opinion, chapter 29 is a clear indication that Seo is improving as a writer. This chapter gelled in a way that really worked. It gives a clear indication of the "purpose" of having the American/Mafia/Rich girl "Hime-sama" in the crowd
It synthesizes the earlier meeting of Koyuki and Fuuka
It makes use of the popularity of both Mikasa and Nachi-sempai and displays significant character development by Yuu, in that he performs well, though not flawlessly, and he appears to nail the solo, at least enough to elicit a fond glance and sweet little blush from Fuuka. It also shows character development from Koyuki as she recognizes Fuuka as what she already realized she was, a romantic rival, but also acknowledges her as a potential professional rival, while displaying her resolve to not loose to her.

As for Fuuka, what can you say. She wins over the crowd in an instant, but more than that, she instinctively gives them that extra push that Yassan identified their performance as needing to make something really big happen. It will be interesting to see where the story goes from here.


At this point, I would have to say that Fuuka is his best work to date, but I felt the same way about the early chapters of Kimi no Iru Machi in comparison to Suzuka. (And I still feel that the characters in KnIM are stronger and more well rounded than most of the characters in Suzuka.) Half & Half might be better in the end, if the ending is really good, or if Fuuka goes off the rails at some point. Princess Lucia, while fun and very entertaining, makes far too much use of ecchi sight gags to really be called good writing. (That may just be my opinion, others might think it is well written... I think it is a ton of fun and wish it came out more often, but not if it meant less Fuuka or Half & Half,)

However, he has more "off model" character moments in Fuuka than I remember in the early chapters of either KnIM or Suzuka. (Not in this chapter per say, but overall.)

This has gotten good. I can't remember another manga that was so confrontational so quickly.

Fuuka is one of the best manga heroines I've ever read!


Can't wait for next week!
