Happy to see Pin in the new episode. I would love to know what is going on and what the conversation between Pin and Sawako is about. It's pretty obvious it is about her and Kazehaya.
And now Mogi is back? Makes me wonder what his role will be. Will it turn into a fight for Ayane's heart? Hmm... Now if only Pin would do something about it but I don't see it happening.

Episode 69 is out! What do you guys think of the new developments?
As much as I like Pin's role, I don't want him to remain in this role forever. I want him to find a love of his own as well. I hope he falls in love with someone.
Does this episode confirm that KentoxAyane is endgame?
Chapter 71 raw
Some great developments for Kazehaya and Sawako!
finally. I'm never really over the main pairing. I never get tired of them.
Last chapters were so great~
Yano finally accepted Ken and now this... Sawako should have said all that stuff sooner to avoid the misunderstanding on both sides but it's a good thing that she did something. Made me realize that she really changed, now she is taking the intitiative to deepen their relationship - while Kazehaya didn't do anything besides thinking. He really is a klutz when it's about romantic relationships
but whatever, their kisses were so upper-cute t'was so damn awesome, now they hopefully will become a "real" couple
I loved how the innocence was played in all this. I mean, Sawako didn't know what she was doing, what all the underlying meaning was about "closing her eyes".
It's going to be interesting where the mangaka will take us next. I mean, how the pace will be quickened or slowed down since their relationship has taken a new turn. New emotions will arise from this encounter.
What happens next will be the real test of Shiina's writing ability. I personally think that the build up and the innocence of the relationship lasted a tad bit too long, but now that things are in full swing, I'll be looking forward to seeing if she can keep the relationship interesting, without inserting artificial melodrama.
which was also one of the reasons I hesitated reading Kimi ni Todoke. :/
At that point I had already read a reasonable number of shoujo to roll my eyes and say "get on with it already".
But I tried to appreciate the characters instead, and that's what made me stick through it I guess. I had dropped the series once due to impatience, and picked it up again, sort of like, resigning to the fact that, well- that's how Sawako is, I guess.
Too unrealistic, given the state of Japanese teenagers these days. But what the heck.
I do agree that the whole thing between Sawako and Kazehaya was dragging but it didn't was that bad to me. There were other things going on which still made it enjoyable to me. It's one of the few manga were I really like all the pairings so I thoroughly enjoyed Chizu x Ryuu and Ayana x Kent moments - which made the Kazehaya/Sawako deal more endurable (even though exploring these two relationships is one of the reasons it was dragged).
