GE ~ Good Ending 38

[chapter link]

Shonen mothers are so eager – whether intentionally or unwittingly – to stay out of the way when their idiot sons finally land a girl.

P2, center panel: Weekly Shonen Magazine again pushes the boundaries of the shonen demographic. Between this and Bloody Monday, the defining line isn’t nearly as clear as it used to be.

What a lovely outfit Yuki is wearing. Sasuga has a good sense of fashion.

If shonen is any indication, Japanese boys should deliberately remain terrible at math. Evidently, it directly leads to intimate situations with beautiful girls.

Utsumi is chasing her? Requisite fall-on-top-her moment in 2 or fewer pages…

P10, top-right panel: Amusing expressions, and good use of speed lines.

Seamless transition from enjoyable (if a little stereotypical) romantic comedy to some serious character introspection. The romantic comedy / harem / ecchi genre is often labeled as all fanservice and no story, which is a fair criticism for many series, but the best series of the genre go beyond scantily-clad women to develop some motivation and purpose in their male protagonists. I’m pleased to see this series is hinting at that, and I hope to see further development.

… of course, right after a serious moment comes pornography and groping.

Final Flash: Good chapter. It would have been easy to keep to overused scenarios, but the author has inserted a moment of real promise in between the ecchi fare.
