ok, an update after reading till chapter 22 (the raws though, not the subs)

Spoiler (highlight to view)
the storyline is just so frustrating! All it's doing is going in circles, and there doesn't seem to be a point to the story even at chapter 22. Unlike Parfait Tic, I find it impossible to connect with Hanabi and the rest of the characters, and the element of 'mystery' that Nanaji Sensei is trying to incorporate just bogs down the plot.

Bummer Number 1:
Although there are some little hints of something going on with several characters (hints of possible love triangles maybe) and several new characters, Nanaji sensei doesn't seem to know where she's heading with all these loose ends. It's really quite apparant this time that she's making up the story as she goes along.

Like I mentioned, she seems to be injecting 'mystery' to fuel the plot and hook readers. But all it does is alienate the characters from me. Without knowing what their goals and motivations are, I find it a waste of my emotions to cheer the characters on; I don't even know what I should be cheering for! Empathy is zero.

Use of suspense and cliffhangers are always good, but not when said cliffhanger is mentioned once or twice at chapter 10, but is not even addressed all the way up to chapter 20.

Bummer Number 2:
Hanabi turns out to be a boy-snatcher. Yes, Uno-kun is attached to a girl.

Not much has been mentioned about Uno and girlfriend's relationship, (as usual, Nanaji is using the suspense element to keep the story moving which is just plain tiring, really) but boy-snatchers are just a big nono in my book.

Although Nanaji wants to emphasize on the theme of 'courageous (go-for-it-at-all-costs) love', all that is brought across is Hanabi's selfishness and apparant lack of a decent sense of morale.

Initially she feels is a slight remorse towards the girlfriend (which decent girl wouldn't?), but because of her bordering on obsessive love towards Uno, she refuses to back down. I actually cheered for poor girlfriend, when Hanabi received a sound slap, at the end of Chapter 22. What could I say except that she deserved it.

To sum it up, I would carry on reading only because the earlier bits of hinted mysteries are still unsolved and that chews on my brain a little. Other than that, characters are not that likeable, plot is too haphazard. For fans like me who are looking forward to Nanaji's sunshine stories of teenage love, be prepared for a darker and moody undertone peppered with angst, in this edition. Only the art is as always a joy to view. 4/10 this time.
