"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."
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.
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.

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.
