Of all the places for scanlations to suddenly stop! Though, I'd probably be saying that no matter where they stopped.

Almost a year and a half without updates... so sad... I hope someone picks this up and finishes the last two volumes.

this manga woudn't be finished anytime soon, the person who was working on it (Usha) is living her moteki xD

That's partly due to the unfortunate need to create drama with extremes. People in fiction tend to polarize: men are either saints or beasts, women are sluts or pure maidens. Of course, in reality,most people are in the grey area, and not even on the same day or week. Sometimes people go through a phase of being an asshole or permissive, sometimes they go the other way and everything in between.

 

Still, you'd think guys like this would weed themselves out simply by failing to reproduce...then again, I have two kids, so I somehow I managed. Haha!

Actually people are divided psychological into introverts and extroverts, some people are in the gray, but those are less and not the other way around.

not noticing if someone is introvert or extrovert is because of the misconception that all introverts are shy or have social-anxiety, not really, sure most introverts have some an anxieties or another, but it's mostly because of being neurotic (opposite of assertive)

Nice

I just ready the first 16 chapters. Superb art. Crazy humorous narrative - don't take it too seriously. =3

BULLET. DODGED.

Good, the piece of shit got what he deserves, being alone forever. He gets with a girl, then goes home and cheats on her with another girl and doesn't calling her for months. WTH? A guy who gets this many chances and still fail this hard deserves to be alone forever.

THE ATMOSPHERE THIKENS AS THE PLOT GETS HEAVIER rrrrrrr

What I´m saying you have to trudge through neck-deep of sh!t to see that greener grass. But that´s if you don´t drown midway through...which I guess you will if you don´t have the willpower. Kind of funny then, don´t that mean the MC resembles you? ;D
 
But that´s only if the tv-show was faithful adaptation.


I just finished reading volumes 3 and 4........ the plot of the drama was a bit different from the original.

Ahah, the best drawing for the actual pervert °o°

Implying social anxiety and a myriad of other psychological issues are purely genetic.

 

Hehe. Good point, but maybe it's a virus! 

 

Just an aside, my mother's side of my family--the men are all very passive, herbivore types where my grandmother was a gruff matriarch for a long time. My father's side is the complete opposite, short-tempered, materialistic and aggressive with classic patriarchy dominant. How much of that is genetic vs. being passed down via socialization? I have no idea, all I know is I ended up more like my mother's side and the family I married into is also somewhat passive.

Neat, an update. Thanks for the chapter.

Although, looks like we have some リア充/normals who can't understand the MC very well.

 

You know, you can read all about perfect guys who go straight for the kill from the get-go in all kinds of shoujo romances, right? Just read those, man.

re: the concept of moteki

 

I guess it makes sense MC's moteki is occurring near thirty. I had mine, though not as dramatic, around the same time. I think it's a combination of biological urges and social pressure (for both men and women), so there is a confluence of parties looking to hook up at around that age.Turning 30, unfortunately, is a big social deal in many circles where going past that "use by date" can have a lot of societal/psychological implications. 

 

In hindsight, am I happy how my season of "moteki" turned out? Not sure. Some days I feel like I let myself get railroaded into being a "productive" member of society, other days, I'm damn glad at what I have and feel blessed. Life can be a lot worse...and it could have been better...all we can do is keep trying to make the best choices possible...

Ugh. COMPLETELY dense, incapable losers like this should be weeded out of the population, and if the spoilers are correct, deservedly so. Manga has a weird WEIRD fixation on two extremes of either herbivore or carnivore MCs with little in between.

I think i'll rage quit this...

my heart can't endure this...

bye...

Uwahhhh... So much hates I guess u guys see yourself in Fujimoto D: *pat pat* there there~ nobdys perfect dont be too harsh on urself *pats* now now~ calm down ^-^

 

Tho I dont blame u guys since Fujimoto as u see... too dense and lack of self-confidence (I lack too :sadface:) which irritates me lol but u know... He's been a sore loser since uhmmm idk birth? lol and atleast give his sum credit I guess... uhhh... ehhh... Well... for havin his first step @ Itsuka after Naoko giving him sum push yet even advices? lol but then there was not much improvement on his end.... hehe :D

 

Geez... Fujimoto nid to stop hesitating and just go for Doi Aki. She's perfect to be a waifu<3 as I seen so far ^-^(but she need to take that facade off) tho Am totaly rooting for Natsuki :3 She's just way too charming/attractive esp. when she had her hair cut off. It's very lovely~ <3

 

~thanks for update c:

this MC still doesn't improve at all as a character. I hope at least after that event with linda he will grow some balls. but nope, he still as sad as he was at chap1.

I don't think I've ever hated an MC as much as this pathetic sad sap.

Bleh. It's like you have to flip through 3-5 pages of 'Asian women making stupid gestures & duck faces' to get to some somewhat interesting writing and nice art but one that involves a fucking loser.
