It was more than long for me, I didn't understand what was the problem and why they avoid each other for nothing so I'm really glad this ended.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.
Yeah, it was actually more than a "tad bit" too long for me too. I was kind of just trying to be polite. Didn't want to get my head bitten off by a hardcore KnT fan. Fortunately for me, I read the first 69 chapter all in one go before catching up. So the drama between Sawako and Kazehaya was frustrating, but in real time, I didn't have to wait long for it to be resolved.It was more than long for me, I didn't understand what was the problem and why they avoid each other for nothing so I'm really glad this ended.
I disagree, unrealistic is the wrong word. Unusual may be more fitting, as this is definitely the case. You may call me a romantic but I believe that such a love/behaviour still exists, it's just pretty rare nowadays.Too unrealistic, given the state of Japanese teenagers these days. But what the heck.
Well their culture definitely is more conservative regarding some things (like love) but they do share some things with other industrial nations. It's definitely more believable than what it would be in other western nations.point taken, as I'm not an expert in Japanese culture and their demographics and things.
In the philippines this kind of romance wouldn't be unusual, since a lot in this country is still highly conservative (given that the dominant religion is Roman Catholic).
It is funny you said that, now that c93 is released... the opposite could be said now. I felt Yano always genuinely wanted to change, to become the girl who falls in love the same way as Sawako and Chizu. She placed her hopes on Ken hoping she'll fall in love with him, because Ken was sincere to her, but I always felt she never accepted him just because she never felt any romantic attraction to him. If you read c93, she confirms her false feelings for him.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.
