You know, since there hasn't been any time skips on a while a lot of the fun has started to fade. The DX Brigade is turning into douchebags, Aoshima is being kind of pathetic, Wagatsuma is really bland and Sylvia is being wasted on gags.

I miss all the fun of the first chapters.

Yeah. Wagatsuma is your standard model, kinda dull, default love interest. Sylvia is always viewed from the outside and is rather taciturn, so she's something of an enigma. Ito, on the other hand, seems really fun and passionate.

Yeah, in only two chapters we know more about Ito that we know about Wagatsuma on the whole series. That's something that really bothers me, Aoshima only wants to be with Wagatsuma because was the first girl who showed up on his time-slips, no build up, no forgotten friend, nothing. Just because it was the first.

"The first girl the MC meets who he didn't already know is the winner" is about as close to an ironclad Law of Anime as you can get. Exception: Childhood friends can still reach "first girl" status if the MC hasn't seen them in a long time.

Tell me about it, I actually hated Ichigo 100% when the ending subverted those rules
In the end my problem is that we keep seeing more of the other girls while Wagatsuma keeps being static and bland. Usually an effort is made to validate that status of heroine, effort that's missing here.

New chapter

Aoshima, you rear end in a top hat

AnacondaHL posted:

Well they have to by definition not give us everything about Wagat Suma otherwise the manga would end. There was the swimming arc and bits of her personality revealed little by little, and it feels like flexible pacing so that when they do decide on a finale they can wrap up the story with her big reveal, i.e. "why her" and any other "why not other girl".

I don't think it's effort missing, it's just the flow of the story and your impatience.

You got a point there, and more than impatience is the fact that I found way more interesting the other girls (in just three chapters I'm more invested on Ito's wellbeing) than Wagatsuma and we all know that she's gonna be the winner on the end. It just doesn't feel fair

Well, it's just solidifying itself more and more as a harem manga it seems, though I never thought a teacher heroine would enter the picture. Now that it's come up though, it just made me realize that our main character is practically one of those terrible visual novel protagonists, only he hits all the flags terribly and doesn't know how to reach the ending despite seeing it literally...
This is kind of infuriating actually, the author is being a coktease by showing all these possible (and interesting) outcomes just to keep Aoushima obsessed with the most boring and shallow heroine. rear end in a top hat.

Is still going but isn't nearly as entertaining as it was at the beginning. The current arc feels like padding, the protagonist is kind of a little bitch, the main heroine is pretty bland (as nearly every female lead on a Harem)...I'd say just read it until the confession and the forgot about it.

I dropped it after the field trip. Not sure if its worth picking it back up for the ending. Thoughts?

The ending was predictable and outside of Aoshima having a small arc to suddenly become a decent person there isn't that much of character development for the cast.

They introduced an interesting plot point on the last five chapters but it went nowhere (is part of the aforementioned arc to turn Aoshima on a decent guy); I'd say just pick up from the last five chapters since the in between arcs are really lovely.
