About this deal

But when the next person to confess to Yuu is the alluring Nanami herself, has Yuu’s shoujo romance finally begun? But things don't go as planned, since Nanami instead of accepting Yuu's feelings just says "I'm sorry. But the author wrote the scene very well, I believe that this was one of the best scenes of rejection in a yuri manga that I have read. In another part of the flashback, Miyako assumes that Hakozaki was only drunk and wasn't really interested in women and avoids her. I do think that there’s a fundamental difference in how Yuu and Sayaka love Touko, which is not necessarily stated (maybe a little in this volume) but has been present throughout the series.

The seventh volume of Manga, containing chapters 35 to 39, was released by Dengeki Comics on April 26th, 2019 in Japan. That final bit I want to highlight is we get some nice stuff with Hakozaki-sensei and her girlfriend, Miyako. Miyako takes Sayaka on a reconnaissance mission and for the first time, Sayaka gets to talk to someone like her, and see what life can become. So why isn't she ready for Yuu's feelings now that she's sure Yuu really knows who she really is and loves her for real reasons? It's a tough thing, and we're nowhere near a final resolution in our lives, but I have to have faith.Without spoilers though for some really wonderful scenes, I do want to highlight some of their dialogue. The characters need this time to look around how everyone else has changed and how they have changed. It’s almost like they needed this brief separation to see just how much they truly do need each other in their lives. After Yuu's confession in the last volume, we see both Yuu and Touko struggling with the aftermath and their true feelings. And to be honest, I think that extra time processing both helped me to enjoy volume 7 more than I would have otherwise.

Sayaka finally confesses, expressing to Touko that at first she might have fallen for the version of Touko that she created for others, but even after getting to know her, her feelings stayed the same. I reject a binary being imposed on asexual/aromantic people and I think Yuu, whether intentionally by the author or not, establishes that possibility in a very realistic way. But I would like to present another way of looking at Yuu that might reconcile both the representation and her confession and feelings for Touko. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Sayaka's own journey and subsequent confession in this was both heartbreaking and so inspiring at the same time (งಥ_ಥ)ง The climax in this volume is the climax of the entire series, and I'm ready for the happy ending!

Up through volume 5, Yuu really had been presented to the audience as aromantic/asexual, and her friendship with Maki who is also aromantic/asexual provided nice moments of pseudo exposition on it for the audience. In my own life, I came out to my wife as transgender 2 and a half years ago and that's exactly what we are working through. One of my favorite scenes was early on when Touko tries to strike up a conversation with Yuu, but Yuu wants nothing to do with her. prose/writing (0-10): 8 - I think some of Touko and Sayaka's interactions and how Yuu is depicted a bit like a sulking, petulant, emotional wreck even within her tightly controlled unemotional self demonstrates some really fine writing of teen characters. I think that what made this volume for me was the fact that our characters have taken almost a break from one another.
