Kimi no Iru Machi 106

September 29, 2010 Leave a comment
[scanlation by Red Hawk Scanlations]

That cover page is… suggestive. Ahem.

It’s great that everyone is planning on heading back to Tokyo this soon, because that means we’re likely in for some immediate plot development, but this small town has easily been a better setting than the big city. Plot advancement would be welcome; a return to drama would not.

Haruto’s memories of Mishima are amusing. She has certainly stood out since her introduction.

Uh-oh. “We need to talk” is rarely a good sign.

Men, this is a red flag. Learn it well.

There goes another romance series love interest deciding things all on her own.

Fortunately, Mishima’s anxiety isn’t at all a lead-in to unwarranted drama. Seo has quite a gift for impactful panels.

Excellent scene

Fantastic last few pages. This is exactly the right step for the series to take.

Final Flash: Pleasantly nostalgic chapter with a wonderful ending.

Kimi no Iru Machi 105

[scanlation by Red Hawk Scanlations]

Kanzaki finally makes her appearance, and it will be a vital one. She’s the defining line between harem and single-relationship focus.

More breast humor. Mishima is keeping things enjoyable and light.

Calvin would not be proud

Kanzaki is playing a sad role in her conversation with Haruto. She obviously still has some feelings for him, but she can tell that he is currently most comfortable around Mishima, whether or not he realizes his feelings for her.

I wonder if Haruto really is “too late” for Kanzaki. She wasn’t terribly convincing.

Uh, wow. More disregard for any form of censorship. I hate to make a fuss out of it, because I’m personally against censorship, but I’m surprised at just how blatant Magazine has been recently.

Final Flash: A pleasant but unremarkable chapter.
