I am glad to see this update (Chapter15?). Somethings I liked about it are that it shows, once again, how Azusa's character is bold, arrogant, rude, mostly selfish, and still soft when it come to his mother. It has given Karino a card that may last even after the game.

I also liked how Karino said he doesn't pity Azusa. I think that is true. And I think it's a key part of their "frenemy" dynamic--Azusa does not want pity. Azusa is angry and would like to turn the tables on Karino, but Azusa is also honest when he says Karino is all Azusa has. Azusa might have had Atsumu as a friend, but Karino killed that. Tatasumi or even the guy from the photo club were possible allies, but Azusa never considered developing them. Azusa wants to make it on his own--and the only one who has ever gotten close (albeit in a twisted and sick way) is Karino. So we have this abusive power dynamic--but neither Azusa nor Karino see Azusa as a victim. That's important. Because one thing I like about Azusa is that he never sees himself as a victim--even now he sees himself as a king.

I also liked Tatsumi telling Kuse not to have Atsumu shelve the books because that's Kuse's job. I liked Tatsumi explaining why he does not care if he becomes a target (and because Tatsumi is from a powerful family, maybe no one will push it). I liked seeing Tatsumi carrying on too.

I can't wait to see how they will shake things up. Personally, I hope something takes Karino down a peg or two as well, even if it is temporary. But we will see.

I think Lucaon is the type you have to really watch to figure out what is going on. He isn't going to talk about (or even think about) feelings much at this point. I think he was goading Ryan and being sarcastic when he offered to let Ryan have a go. Watch how Lucaon reacts every time someone else (anyone else) touches Kyon.

I think Lucaon like to provoke people though--I think Lucaon provoked Karis on purpose before, and that he wants to get caught with Kyon to say, "So what? Yeah, this is mine, and?" But he won't talk as if t is connected to feelings. You have to watch him to see it.

    So? I realized that almost immediately. Doesn't change my impression of him...?

    That's cool. I was writing mostly because some of the comments seem to take his words at face value, or that they can't have feelings unless they communicate. I wasn't trying to change anyone impression or anything, just to suggest that words are not always everything.

    hi anoni. im a fan of what you write: every time i see your comments, i find myself to consistently agree and believe that youve worded it very well.

    would you mind me asking how old you are? as well, what you study?

      Hi KGT. Thank you. :) I am very old--I started reading a lot here when I had health issues. Manga are short and distracting. It is also good to find people who will chat about them online

      I am 50. My undergrad is in psychology, but I have advanced degrees in law, and later in education. Naturally, I am full of theories. Add some meds to that, and I chat way too much. But I mean well.

      Your post are great too--you write very well.

      its so awesome to see past-times that millennials have claimed to once again expand its demographic. how long have you been reading manga for? how did you get into them?

      are you still in work? what do you do? have you ever been a lawyer or teacher? or, do you prefer to work behind the scenes such as on company boards?

      man, i can empathise. my mum is also 50 and has health problems. for her, she turns to mindless games, and has delved into watching more tv in order to distract her from the pain. she loves reading, but cant even do that anymore.

      do you know of the site quora by any chance? if youre interested, perhaps you can get a kick out of it. its an advanced Q&A information-sharing platform, with the aim of easily sharing your knowledge to dramatically increase the amount of knowledge available to the world.

      thank you very much, to hear that from you is important to me ^^

      I am always outside the key demographics :) It's just that as most people get older, they have less time. Until you get really old--then you have time (maybe) but you may need to take a nap before you do anything.

      I used to look at everything at the bookstore (back when we had them), but when I was a teacher, students asked me to sponsor an anime club after school, and that's when I first started really reading manga and watching anime. All of that was mainstream. Then I got busy and started reading less. I didn't find yaoi until fairly recently. I have become a lot pervier in my old age--a dirty old woman.

      I was a lawyer for a short time, but it didn't suit my personality. I am really more of a teacher, so that's what I started doing. I had both health problems and other issues, and I had to stop everything for a while. Now I work part-time. My health issues are chronic, so that's just the way it goes.

      I can understand your mom perfectly. Sometimes I want to read and my eyes hurt too much. Getting old can be a drag. If you can stay in your 20's forever, I recommend it.

      I will check out Quora. Thank you!

      thank you for responding, youre very interesting. explains why im increasingly finding you in yaoi comment sections :p

      you sound like you were a very personable teacher - having kids actually approach you for something important to them. do you teach part-time? what was it about being a lawyer that didnt suit you? were you good at it when you were one?

      i think that you and my mum could, for lack of a more heartfelt word, bond over your health issues. shes in a similar position to you and hates it - shes unable to move very much at all now and is in pain all of the time due to her fibromyalgia, but she was a national athlete around 30 years ago.

      You would make a good writer or reporter. :)

      I liked studying law and the idea of helping women and children, but I hate fighting all the time about everything. To some, it may seem like I "fight" naturally, but you should see lawyers. We need good lawyers who fight for people, but we also need teachers.

      Thank you! I saw people talking about that, but it was only on premium when I checked (a month or so back). I love those kinds of shows!

Just another twisted soul who likes to read and talk about stories.

I tend to have strong opinions, but I never mean the tone to be harsh.  I like strong and proactive characters 
with flaws such as pride or being high-handed. I dislike perpetual 
victims with flaws such as being too stupid to live, or passively asking for others to fix their problems for them. I will start to like a weak character if he or she shows some progress or growth. 

I also subscribe to a sort of "Death of the Author" theory, meaning I look at the reader's experience of what is on the page as much as the "Word of God" from the author about the author's intent.  Once something is put out in the world, people will take it and read it with their own perspectives and ideas.  Everyone co-creates the stories as they read them, and a part of reading will always be subjective.
