It's here. And oh. Oh dear. It reminds me of something from Very early on.

Hey, I just got into it and read it all. I agree about your comment about her. Maybe Natsuo will help in the same way as before?

Looks like 17 volumes are available for Kindle or Comixology from Amazon at about $6-$8 per book, plus some of the individual chapters at $1-$2 a pop.

I just finished 174 and freaking knew it! I should have trusted my instincts the first time I saw him, saying he had work at the hotel the lying scumbag. I hope the master of the coffee shop hurts him real bad if he messes with my Hina.
Edit: Read a little further and Lying scumbag is way too generous a description for this dumpster full of trash, pickles and cheese melting in the midday sun wearing a human suit.

Wow I didn't expect that to happen in the newest chapter(219). I wonder how Natsuo is gonna react to this now.

So it's a Rui ending, huh. I guess I should have known after the year long trip to America was announced. There's too much in the way for him and Rui for it not to be the way the story goes. Hina is my favorite by far because of the sheer amount of love she shows for Natsuo, but I know Rui has just as much love for him and just no way to show it so I don't hate it for going this route. Of course it might go Scum's Wish and we get a zero sum ending where no one wins as well.

I really don't think the age gap was so bad, it was mostly the fact they were teacher and student. I also don't want to get across as someone resenting women or something like that by what I think of Rui, but really, I have never met someone even close as her in real life. While on the other hand. the fact that Hina has gotten into such an amount of troubles due to her lack of judgement and still keeps taking bad choices, like bottling important stuff inside all the time, is actually more believable as a human being. I don't know, maybe that combination is easier to find over there, but as a latin american I can't really imagine a real girl like Rui.


My wife is just exactly like Rui (hard working, straightforward, honest, and so on, even a little possessive but that's cute). So they exist, definitely. And mostly is a question of maturity.

Here are my thoughts after binge-reading the series:

I personally love the series. At first I was drawn in by hearing about the anime and how many people liked the series. I went into the show expecting a somewhat cliche love story about some guy who has an unrequited crush on his teacher and accidentally sleeping with her sister. But what I got was much more. I ended up reading all of the chapters in about 5 days after I watched about 4 episodes of the show and now I am pretty bummed now that I have to wait weekly for the story lol :tears:. I love many of the characters and found some elements of the story to be relatable to parts of my life. I know that some of the characters are kinda cliche or kinda play it up a notch but I still couldn't help loving their interactions with one another. The story made me feel all different kinds of emotions from just giggling at some of the comedic elements or making me almost start to bawl at some of the most emotional moments of the story. I've read a lot of people getting upset with the story and how it should've ended already or that the author doesn't know where to take the story but I think that the story is flowing rather well. Granted some of the criticisms are warranted but I can't help but still enjoy it everytime I read a new chapter. It may be that I just haven't read many manga (let alone romance manga) but I just love the story.

I watched the first few episodes of the anime then read the whole series up to date in about 4 days. I must say the writer really pissed me off with what Rui did by breaking up him. But I think I see what is going to happen. If they don't end up together, I feel like we would have been wasting our time with all the growth they did together. I think the new character is going to help out his writing and when she gets back they will both break down and get back together and come out to the parents. I also see Hina calling Rui and yelling some sense into her because what she did was cruel.

PS. If Rui ends up hooking up with the other dude Imma be pissed!!!

No need for spoilers as the latest episodes are available on the site.

The reasons for the breakup are indeed pushing him to write again and make him not depending on her for his own happiness. And cease hiding things to her. On the other side Rui has to work on her own issues, that is, being more in control of her own feelings. In fact, to be indipendent in pursuing the objectives of the life so love is a choice and not a need is one of the main themes of this manga.
We have seen Natsuo is practically giving up his dream, he felt his inability to write as permanent. And he feels that Rui is everything he still has to be happy. But Rui knows he cannot be really happy without writing, we have seen how the writer's block made him depressed and angry. That is why she choose such an extreme measure, this way he will be forced to not depend on her and to return pursuing his dream without being bothered by a long distance relationship. Complicated? Yes. But a very good reason.

About Hina: it is true she lost a lot because of Natsuo, but it is also true that both managed their short relationship horribly, they knew the consequences of being found and simply ignored them. Also she gave up her job only later, when she felt lonely and unfit to be a teacher due to her errors. So yes,she lost a lot but she has to blame herself for that.
