And it's kind of too bad for Kishitani that Nono woke up as he was trying to dress her again...:P
Haha I love the manga already - currently at chapter 12 - and it's so akwardly-funny
Edit: I'm at chapter 40 and it becomes a really great story. That story twist during the school tournament... wow, what a great moment!
Leaving only one feeling:
And there still are some many open storylines which Nononono will follow... it's torture to have to wait for it
Personally I hope that Nono will end up confessing to either Amatsu or Kishitani (though her relation to Kishitani must be somewhat akward now )
Both seem reliable enough to keep her secret and understand her and both seem like pleasant characters for her to be with.

I really liked Ch. 86 (new, available on mangareader.net). It sets a much faster pace for the ski competition, but it fits well imo (not every minor competition can be blown up to several chapters after all)
I don't like the announcement in the end though... no ski jumping in Vol. 9, but less/no everyday life when the inter high part begins... it worries me a little, the mix of ski jumping and personal life was so great so far
I hope that "no everyday life" just means stuff like when they went to the fairy or something like that.

Ugh, mangareaders.net is a terrible site in so many ways, I would really appreciate if you support us by reading it directly from our own reader.
Next volume will definitely be different, that I assure you.
Chapter 88 is out... wow, that one is so hard, it's really intense. It comes up with so much developement that it pays off for the (in my eyes) miserable Ch. 87 tenfold (after all 87 was only a chapter for introducing one or two new characters, so it's ok).
If the votings wouldn't be running already, I had nominated it as Best Chapter in the awards for certain, even though it made me sad. It's just so extreme.

I just started reading this manga today and have now reached chapter 87... by tomorrow I shall have reached the latest chapter which is 95 at the time of writing.
kopta, your description of "awkwardly funny" is so spot-on! hahahahaha I enjoy this manga so much coz it's funny when you least expect it.
truthfully, about the coach, the way his character was depicted the first time he was introduced, I thought the most believable option for him to blackmail Nono was by asking for money. When he thought he'd actually want something sexual from her is, I think, a kind of convenient plot device.
He embezzled, he got laid off- his most prominent motive would have to be money. But he wants Nono as a toy? doesn't match too well.
i have a question: where does Nono get the money for tuition? travel? I forget if her mom was still alive and bed-ridden somewhere?

I've been wondering about her circumstances, too. Why she's allowed to live on her own, whether she does get any money at all or possibly some from the state. I think it's unanswered by the manga. But it seemed she lived all on her own in the beginning, when she was living in that shed and ate fish which she seemingly caught herself. Afterwards she moved to the dorm, which might be free, too.
