yeah, thats why i dropped nieseko.
why is it always 200 chapters of 'getting together'?


Agreed. Given how popular Ah My Goddess, Maid Sama, Ai Yori Aoshi, and SA were, and how popular My Love Story is turning out to be, you'd think there would be more mangaka who figured out that "hey, we can get the main couple together and have them interact was a couple, without ruining the manga!" AYA did it, and was even a harem manga (and AMG occasionally pretended to be a harem manga).

Still, at least SOME relationship progress has been made in this one ("she's cute, who is she?" to friends to whatever they are now). It's been slow, but that's a heck of a lot more than you can say about Nisekoi (and many others).

They should take a page from Seo. If you want people to talk about your manga, kill a character with a truck. Can you imagine how much this manga would be talked about if Usa hurt Kawai and she ran out the door and he gave chase, and because he did that she ran and as she rounded a corner, an out of control truck strikes and kills her instantly right in front of Usa... Am I a bad person for thinking about that?


That's awful! Just terrible! It should be a bus.

Word. I never actually picked the manga up and only watched the anime. Though after the firestorm the latest chapter created, I wanna see what t does with itself.

Personally Misunderstandings are the spice of life. Usa-kun needs to man up or Ritsu-chan has to stop thinking Usa keeps liking her as only a friend.

I read all of Fuuka 2 days ago and this today and while I won't derail the convo talking about another manga, I think most people who mention the comparision have a point.


Ritsu is absolutely adorable due to her shyness and the way she looks in certain panels, but I feel like some of the chapters are needless padding which add nothing to anyone's personality. I mean at least other manga I have read recently have had less padding in then.


Don't get me wrong, I love the manga a lot, but hopefully it either ends soon or we get some time with them as a couple because waiting a month or so only for another chapter of "Will they, won't they" won't satisfy anyone.

The difference, though, is the focus. Fuuka, like all of Seo Kouji's work, is a romantic melodrama. He takes a couple, puts their relationship through the ringer (often through fairly contrived means) over and over and over again, and then tries to derive some kind of "happily ever after" at the end.

Bokura wa minna is a romantic comedy in which the point is to laugh at the bad luck of the MC; it's Nisekoi or Love Hina but without the harem. A lot of the focus doesn't have anything to do with the main couple, or any kind of romantic attachment at all; many of the chapters are simply side stories and gags about the crazy people surrounding the MC. The "Ritsu is an idiot when it comes to love" plot is just one of several running gags throughout the manga. At the end of the day it's a gag, not unlike Shirosaki's masochism or Mayumi's horrible love life. I'm also hoping that the central relationship moves forward--that the gag involving Ritsu evolves--but for now, I'd recommend just sitting back, enjoying the ride, and taking pleasure in Uso's pain.

I guess you are right. I do find all the stories fun since a lot of them can be standalone chapters on their own and the plots are usually well-done.

I guess, like you said, I want the central relationship to move forward so we can focus on another Main Arc as it were. I mean, I wont say the day reading it all was wasted at least, since it was a great time of smiling to myself in between job searching.

Maybe I am just annoyed I caught up to it on a cliffhanger moment and got a while to wait until the next part, I am very anxious when it comes to those things.

You're a sadist aren't you? Don't worry you can hurt Shiro-san any day you want.
