Whats more messed up then what happened in this chapter is staying with a girl you have no feelings for. End of story.
Whats a relationship if both sides don't have feelings for each other.
I don't agree with how straight forward he was but he made the right choice. Also I don't agree with his friends saying that breaking up was a bad idea, they wouldn't understand because they are only seeing it from Asuka's view and not Haruto's. Some "childhood friends" they are.
I totally agree with you. Haruto even said how can't he be with Asuka when he still has feelings for Eba. He always likes Eba, and now I give him more respect because he's straight foward with his feelings. Eba is straight foward with her feelings too. His friends are not real friends at all. They should understand his feelings. Asuka should grow up. It is sad to break up with someone when you put a lot of trust in them, but what is more sad is to force someone to be with you when they don't want to.
I don't think that Haruto had no feelings for Asuka, he perhaps had (alittle bit?), but I guess that the feeling for Eba is much stronger. And Haruto was actually two-timing with Eba (even it's for and within a really short time), yeah and that behind Asuka's back while Asuka believed in Haruto that he can be trusted, unlike Eba when Haruto pretended to be a boyfriend of Nanami Kanzaki for a day. The worst thing is that he recently began dating Asuka and telling everyone he's in love with/dating Asuka but almost instantly he began to fall for Eba. Perhaps Haruto used Asuka as a replacement (?) for the lost of Eba when Eba said they will never meet again after Kazama died. Those were horrible decisions and thinking of both Haruto and Eba without thinking about what they are doing, especially when hurting other people in the process. I can't blame Haruto's friends being angry for what he did to Asuka. It's not about whether Haruto should have ended the relation with her in a proper manner, but more not beginning to date Asuka if he's using Asuka just as a replacement of Eba and does not have feelings for Asuka at all (with other words: fooling around with other's feelings).
