There’s way too much anime to watch this season. It’s distracting me! Sento’s Sentos are the best by the way.
Speaking of the released chapter, this was adapted by episode 10 of the anime and also happened to be the episode I fell pretty hard for Yukino. Particularly, the scene where Yukino apologizes after Hachiman’s spiel about helping others when Hayama and Megu Megu try to get Yukino to rely on others. It always made me wonder why there was that focus on her mouth when she apologized and that really struck some chords with me. As noted by Hachiman in the chapter, the apology wasn’t directed at anyone, but it still makes me think, “who was she really apologizing to?” I think there are a lot of people complaining about how she never apologized to Hachiman about the car incident, even though it wasn’t her fault, but I personally think this apology, as indirect as it was, was what that was. Though, the apology wasn’t as emphasized in the novel as it was in the anime, but still, I’m fairly confident she didn’t feel all that good about the incident either.
…And that’s my mini-rant about how Yukino became best, best girl for me (she was best at the start, of course, but +1 best after).
Looks like I might not have enough time to fully rewrite volume 7 before volume 10 gets released. Damn. Still waiting on the cover, Ponkan8!
Anyway, here’s chapter 5.
