Emotion and sadness is never far away with Asano .
It doesn't need 200 pages to tell something meaningful when you are a good author .


Maybe it's just me , but I found some similarities between that Nakajima chairwoman and a certain character in this anime named "Kill la Kill"... ^^

mind blown.
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit... But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."

That's why i love manga. Just few pages made me think from "this is ridiculous" to feel stuff. I'm sad now.

I'm a bit confused about Asano's releases. Often, we don't even hear about a release until all of the sudden someone finds something and translates it. Why is that? Most of the time, people dig up all of someone's works and then they decide to translate it later on. This manga and Yuushatachi came out of nowhere it seems. There was also this other one I saw on a Japanese website that I can't remember what it was, but no one in the English community seemed to have found it. Kinda weird.

Yet another proof Inio's narrative works better on a short format.

Even though I feel this ends getting it's point across, I still would like this to continue as I think there may be more to tell still.

I don't get it. Was this supposed to be pro- or anti-SJW ?

Those terrible people... :/

I was very confused at the beginning, yet near the end I realized what the point was trying to get across. I really don't think I would mind a short series of this. I'd probably read it.

Story about human hypocrisy (sometimes people are just friends with a person, because they feel sorry for he or because it is cool, and by being their friend, they make themselves feel better and are part of the In crowd [this one-shot reminded me about Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru])... The questions this one shot ask us readers is who really are the monster(s)???

The class president was the only one who didn't do this, because she was partly jealous, and because she knew it was wrong to put someone on a pedestal because they feel sorry for her. So, in the end, when she was right, she felt bad for Monster-chan. Sometimes the person who doesn't treat you kindly and is straightforward can be the one looking out for your best interest directly or indirectly.

True friends are hard to come. Hopefully, these two can become good friends. I still hate how they exploit her by pushing her so hard only to drop her.

I agree with the message, even if I think he went a bit overboard with it. A fragile trade-off.

It was pretty good. If he were to ever expand on this, I'd be very pleased.

Being honest to someone is rather a sign of appreciation than hypocritical compliments.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

It's pretty funny how even though praising her and being friendly with her is just out of pity, but Recchan is a real cutie.
