Konomi got himself a twitter account: https://twitter.com/konomi_takeshi
Discuss his tweets in this thread.
It seems like he will occasionally post some pages of upcoming chapters as well. It's fine to discuss those here, but the 24 hour spoiler rule applies. In other words, don't talk about those tweets outside of this thread until 24 hours after they've been posted.

PoT has like 7 or 9 (I don't really remember) female characters. Not a lot but kinda enough in manga like this. The bad thing about it is that all of them have something bad (Tomoka is annoying, that manager girl that ¨dated¨ Ryoma was a slut, Akutsu's mom is a depressive young adult that can't control his kid and raised him alone apparently, etc...), the only female character I kinda like is Chitose's siter, Miyuki.

The anime guys tried to fix this with Hanamura, some kind of badass female coach, but the final result ended up being kind of a pedo, lol.

Seriously, remove that ¨thanks¨, I feel guilty
Have you guys watched Kuroshitsuji? In there, there is little female characters. But they are badass. One female is an assassin turned maid. If the mansion was ever in danger, she would reveal her assassin side. Another female is a hidden professional fencer. And this was set it the 1800s.
Does that happen in PoT? If anything, they're stereotyped to be useless, crushing on boys, and good at cooking. PoT is really popular, not because of the storyline, but because there are all kinds of boys that fangirls can like. Believe me, I've seen my fair share of shallow fangirls who only like a tv show/character because the characters are "hot". That's their only reason.
I doesn't watch Kuroshitsuji, but I read it. It is pretty good, but as good as those female characters tend to be they are nothing compare to the top male, with exception of maybe that reaper.
I like PoT because of the stupid crazy shot. That's all the reason, really.
Am I the only one around here who really really really wants to see Part II of Tezuka's trip to Germany in the Chapter Cover Story pages?
Really wanna know what the hell Japan's most promising MSer is doing right now.
In the manga, there was a photo that showed him in front of some german building - can't remeber which chapter though. I'm sure he's landed already.
Mehhh, Byo-guy got the cover of volume 13.
If Byodoin is on the cover to volume 13, I'm sure he'll have a big part in the manga soon.
Byoudouin will most likely be the Big Bad later on for Ryoma to face down, so he should have a big role at some point, but he might only be at the very end of SPoT. If focus shifts entirely away from the Japanese team, well...
Is the top right another story? Or was that the spy who hit on Ryoma?
The girl? It's from ¨Lady Cool¨ as it's title says, one of Konomi's other works (and that he loves to spam in his twitter ffs u.u )
@FrostyMouse: What I meant was he'll have a lot of screen time. Probably when the time comes for Ryoma to challenge him. At least Konomi is focusing on HSs rather than just MSs. In Volume 11, Oni was on the cover and he had a lot of lines. Volume 12, Tokugawa, the match was so focused on him.
