>Isshiki let out a brief, but passionate breath and gazed at me in earnest. >“Senpai… is there… anyone you’re dating right now?” > >Her voice faintly trembled, her speech erratic, and her cheeks flushed. >She timidly squeezed the ribbon at her bosom with the hand of that wrist, the creases of her shirt exhibiting an air of excitement. >For only a slight moment, her moist eyes quivered. > >She had struck me at such an unexpected angle that I could feel my heart beat faster. >I swallowed my breath to calm it down. > >No, that appeal didn’t exactly not hit home, yep. No actually, it really did hit home. >Isshiki Iroha, you’re pretty darn good.
I think she still has a hard on for Hayama and Orimoto is gonna confess to Hikigaya soon. Hikigaya will say yes to amends to everything in his life because she's the one who started it all. And it's hilarious
>>117945096 If she appeared earlier in the story she'll undoubtedly win the 8bowl. Too bad for her she entered the game too late and at this point, neither yui nor yukino would tolerate her advances towards the 8man so she has less opportunities to sway him.
>“Considering the situation right now, it’s a chance for me. People noooormally give up after confessing, right? Hayama-senpai seems totally sick of the confessions too, so that’s where I can come in as a ‘safe tile’7 and ambush—I mean, I can, like, give him some plump comfort!”
>I looked over at the other two wondering if they were listening and they were intently doing so.
>Yuigahama and Yukinoshita muttered in repetition and sent Isshiki a serious gaze. It’s like, they were so serious that I could feel the room temperature instantly plunge… It’s most certainly not calm!
>>117953251 It really bothers me why they became so serious. Iroha's intentions to ambush clearly refers to hayama as her target. They have been with hikki for so long they should've known he is not so weak as to fall for that. What's with the sudden possessiveness?
>>117957314 >Iroha's intentions to ambush clearly refers to hayama as her target. Ahahahaha. No.
>“Times like those are when you can consult with Hayama. If you want, you can get him to help you too. He’ll basically be attending to you for the whole year. You could even talk to him over lunch after club or something and even have him send you home too.”
>“Actually, what happened with Hayama? This is the perfect time to ask him for help, no?” When I asked, Isshiki blushed slightly and looked away from me.
>“You’re doing a lot of things after getting asked for help by the student council right? Take care of Iroha.” >“Yeah? So if you knew about it, then you should help her out.” >“It’s not like she asked me. The one who she asked was you.”
>“…That’s not it. I’m honestly happy about Iroha’s feelings. But that’s not it. They were probably not for me but…” >Hayama’s staggering voice didn’t make any sense. Still, Hayama didn’t continue his words even as I waited and jumped into a different topic. >“…You’re pretty amazing. The way you just change the people around you… I’m sure Iroha was the same way too…” >“Haa? What’s with the sudden praise?” >When I said that, Hayama made a dry laugh.
>“Yukinoshita-senpai, so your birthday was on January 3rd, huh? By the way, my birthday is on April 16th, senpai.” >“I didn’t ask…” >Why are you even here in the first place, hmmm…? >“Speaking of which, please call me to the shrine visit, too!” >“And why do I need to do that?” >“So, why are you here?” >“Ehhh, I mean, right now, there’s nothing to do at the student council.” >“There’s plenty of stuff, not that I’d know. Go to club then. You’re still the manager, aren’t you?” I said. >Isshiki lightly tapped my shoulders. “Now, now, what’s the big problem? Ah, I know. I’m actually here to pick up the luggage we left here during Christmas.”
>>117958123 >“If it’s for the student council, I’m not helping anymore.” >“…Oh, okay.” Isshiki muttered dejectedly. >It sounded like she clicked her tongue afterwards, but I was just imagining it, right? Irohasu?
>>117958685 >“So, I was thinking some kinda place where we could just take it niiiiice and easy just to relax or something…” >Then, Isshiki’s face energetically lit up. “I know, right! So, that’s why I’d like to talk about places you’d recommend!”
I wonder why they didn't let 8man go off with Iroha at the end.
>>117958047 Honestly, when it comes to Iroha I'm not really sure if she's going for 8man or not. She's the sly sort, but I'd expect her to be pretty direct honestly. Not sure why she has to misdirect everything to being about Hayama.
>>117959288 It's hard to go for the direct approach since hikki, unlike hayama, has a strong bond with the girls he's associated with. She cannot easily get between that so the chances of her being rejected is almost 100, not to mention that yukino and yui would cockblock her every step of the way since he spends his time with them for most of the day.
This are just speculations though. Irohasu may have been going for him subconsciously, viewing him as a safety blanket that she does not want to lose.
>>117961388 Assuming she does like him, i think the problem is more 8mans self loathing. If she realised this, and convinced him that she likes him for who he his and not pity, and that she doesn't care about the social status implications, then she'd probably be fine.
>>117961562 Assuming Iroha is a sensible girl and not like most bitches out there who string kissless virgins along and only approach them when they need their self esteem replenished. 8man is too high spec with the girls he has around him and won't eat up bs in the first place.
>>117961864 Not self loathing but more of insecurity. The guy has trust issues with how he rags on with understanding and being understood. He often doesn't trust his own feelings too for fear of getting hurt.
>>117961864 This is what yui was aiming for and seems to be the biggest hurdle she has to face in order to get across her feelings properly. Yukino also aims to provide him with something "genuine". In hindsight, both goals somewhat overlap. In due time, This would probably become a source of conflict for both yui and yukino.
Faced with this, what can iroha provide to hikki that the SC girls cannot?
