Well unfortunately, after reached the chapter 34 (after the time shift) I would say, I think now it is better that it did not have a sequel. If this followed the source material, I would have been so disappointed.

I think all the things that happened in anime - stealing girls underwear, draw on the school walls, scramble all tables and chairs, wearing girls underwear while on a date, etc. All those things are innocent pranks and Nakamura always chose them in such a way, that even if discovered, it will only affect the image Kasuga built for himself. I may have misunderstood the author or perhaps the Japanese view of the school system. I even understand the hate for the small town where nothing happens and the desire to make everything exciting. I understand Kasuga's imaginary transcended childish view of himself as literature expert and Saeki as muse or angel. Yet, at certain point his actions stopped made sense. He threw his image, not to face reality with the real Saeki, but to throw it everything, including his own life away with Nakamura.

I just do not get how innocent boyish sexual stuff like stealing girls underwear could escalate so quickly to suicide attempt. It is like Saeki has no effect on him even after they actually had sex. It is so strange and things escalate so quickly that I no longer believe the characters actions are dictated by their emotions, but by the author himself (deus-ex-machina).

However, even it was bad experience, I still wanted to see what happens next. The time shift at chapter 34 killed that desire. I do not think I will read any further...

I am particularly sad for not having a second season. There is a material for it. But now as I read the manga I could not unsee what I saw - the anime eyes effect (I knew about it before, I just did not notice it). The manga characters look more beautiful, but if you look carefully, you will notice that the eyes are not much bigger than what you expect on a human face, they just lack eyelid. It is what the eye would look like if it was visible from the entire eye socket and being flat instead of round.

I do not assume that it applies for all live-action adaptation, but I suppose some live-action adaption are going to suffer from lack of interest of anime community because of the eyes. I just tried to do an honest evaluation. The manga seems to lack the same silent scenes as the anime, since the emotions and thoughts are expressed as text on the frame. Same effect in anime could be achieved by just a shot of the characters faces, if the viewer is able to comprehend their expressions and reactions. For me, it was difficult at first, but I was able to get used to the faces in a few episodes. Without that, the episodes would have been just an empty silent scenes. I think most of the people fell for that.
