What? Aqua isn't allowed to date a detective that can help him find his dad he wants to murder?

I wonder if Aqua is actually right with his assumption about Akane or not.

Either way: What an rear end in a top hat.

e: Like, he assumes he doesn't have a thing for Akane because he has platonic feelings for Kana? I'm not sure that hashes out!

That was actually a pretty good de-escalation there. Everyone talked things out and kept things from getting gross. I appreciate a drama that's willing to put on the brakes now and then.

I guess trying to pull a fast one over a girl whose explicit talent is being able to read people with frightening clarity wasn't a realistic proposition in the first place.

Got a laugh out of Yuki dumping Nobu on camera only to become his girlfriend for real right afterwards. She is certainly a bonafide professional

I expected Aqua to be way scummier than that, go figure.

That being said, Akane did seem kinda sincere about having a crush on him, not to mention Kana.

Meme stocks going up, even if I still want to see more Akane.

I can relate to the feeling of being too old to pursue a young woman's kinda career because adult stuff was more important when you were a teenager.

But Aqua's a useless drunk!

...Oh, you mean the doctor. Right, right.

Caught up with this not a couple chapters ago. (Kinda figured I should between a friend recommending it, liking Kaguya, and the artist doing a ton of really good Chainsaw Man fanart) It's good, and I like it, but I'm not always sure where it's going, and not just in the good way.

It doesn't quite feel like the manga has a firm baseline structure. Not that it has to keep it once it has one, but being able to get a basic feel for the story at a given point, even if the ground collapses under you the next chapter, and I'm not sure how well Oshi no Ko does that.

Without the reincarnation context (and that one's going to require a lot more trust to reveal), it's probably going to look straight up oedipal.

The girls will murder him if and when they find out. When does he even find the time between plotting revenge, schmoozing with anyone that could point him towards revenge and going to high school.

E: It could be that he's just wearing the mask for this occasion but I doubt it. The first time it was the real Pieyon so I see no reason it would be a fake one this time.

Also stop bullying Kana you jerks.

The filmed Pieyon was noted to be much buffer than the Pieyon this chapter (by the one person who's only seen the real one on youtube), and he does a voice that would make a fake easier to manage. Meanwhile, the Pieyon in chapter 22? Quite buff.

Moreover, if you look at how Pieyon speaks in his previous appearance, his dialogue is very different. In chapter 22, he's confident and direct with everything he says. Even his questions are practical and on point, usually asked when he already has an answer in mind. Here?

An um, a well, lots of ellipses, lots of interpersonal questions. He's got a completely different style of talking.

There is a real Pieyon, basically. He's just not in this chapter.

It's like bullying Maki, or bullying Kobeni.

In a harsh world like this, being bullied is the one way to survive.

Kana does have a lot of Maki-like qualities, but I think, more importantly, is that Kana is like the opposite of Fujiwara. The more you bully Kana, the better your opinion of her becomes, whereas the more you bully Fujiwara, the more you become aware that she's a hilariously lovely, petty person.
