Where were you when best grill
Sara almostwon the Yuubowl?
I didn't know i had it in me to rage at the fucking legend again
>She gonna lose though because she looks like asuka
I can totally see it now, there's still hope, Sara is going to win. If the shitty childhood friend wins, i'm going to buy a ticket to Japan and give Seo an upper decker
It's been a while since Sara did something. Thanks Seo for the bone.
Well seo switches which heroines win by the type of hair they have and long hair has been winning pretty often so now it's short hairs turn for winning a seo manga.
His winning heroines only have 2 different hair types if you look closely
She's been sticking around, her prospects even seem to have improved
This has got to be the first time I've read a Seo manga where I've been uncertain about who's going to 'win', it's usually totally obvious otherwise.
+ Has her name in the title, a very big advantage.
+Gets lots of focus and interaction with MC, probably the heroine at this point
-Older than the MC, even more so than Sara, I think. I don't think Seo's ever had his protag paired off with an older girl before.
-Huge breasts. Again, it's unconventional for a Seo protag to be paired off with a girl with massive jabberbangers, they're usually either only big(Suzuka) or modest(Eba).
-MC only seems to view her as a friend, unless I've missed something(which is quite possible).
+.......actually, I'm kind of stumped here
-Once again, older than MC
-Quite a bit taller than him too. The only time I think Seo's given his protag a taller girlfriend is one of his one-shots.
-Alike Fuuka 2.0, her breasts are too big for the Seo heroine role.
-MC's never expressed a romantic interest in her.
-Bickering relationship with Nachi suggests she'll eventually be pensioned off with him.
KOYUKI. (Idol childhood friend)
+Been around longer than the other 2
+The general unsuitability of the other 2 girls improves her chances
+MC did recently say she was cute, maybe suggesting that he's considering her as a romantic prospect now. Seo's MCs never seem to just casually express attraction to girls, they usually only do this with romantic prospects, even if they're only temporary ones.
-She's a somewhat shy, reserved, traditionally feminine girl, and these types never win in Seo's manga.(though she does have the advantage of being kind of ditzy. Seo loves his muppets).
-Hey, it's not her name in the title.
-Longtime unrequited love. Those types are usually kept around for ego-boosts. I don't think I've seen a girl's unrequited love in a RageVerse manga eventually be reciprocated, at least not by an MC.
She probably got bullied by Koyuki or
she has cancer which she refuses to get treated for reason x, doesn't have much longer left to live and that's the reason she isn't into dating
Huh, didn't expect to exceed the character limit
+First girl always wins in the RageVerse, and a great number of manga
+Daughter of previous main characters
+Somewhat foolish, impulsive outgoing type who turns introverted main character's life upside down. A firm favourite of Seo's.
+Breasts are about right
+Right age, too
I don't think anyone else matters
I dunno, maybe she's lonely.
I have to admit, I'm trying to think of an appropriately dumb Seo twist, but I can't do it.
I'm actually a little jealous that nothing comes to mind.
Ah well, at least this means we should get plenty of New Fuuka next chapter
I thought for sure the
reason she wasn't dating was because she was in an abusive relationship, or her last boyfriend DIED for maximum PARALLELISM. It would be funnyif it's actually her last bf died from an STD and she contracted it.
>She probably got bullied by Koyuki
I think she could kick Koyuki's ass. She's bigger, thinks mopey love songs are shit & wears a leather jacket!
or her last boyfriend DIED for maximum PARALLELISM
Shit, i can see this as something Seo would do to go for maximum legend status
>her last bf died from an STD and she contracted it
Nah, he likes to keep his girls pure in that sense
Koyuki is going full psycho, everybody is afraid of crazy people. I bet the reason why Fuuka2.0 is crying cause Koyuki told her Yuu compares her to his ex and hates her or something to that extent
I dunno, I think most RageVerse heroines are obliged to be kissless(except for by the MC), dateless virgins for most of the series, otherwise they're not proper love interests
I'd find it pretty funny, but if comments sections on mangareader sites are anything to go by, there's be some considerable butthurt(of the non-literal kind)
>the fujos would go crazy too
I thought one of the characters being a proper poofter put them off that sort of thing?
actually, if it had come to a scrap between them all, which of the Kimi Machi girls would've won?
My money's on Akari
>discarded love interests have short hair
>fuuka1.0/2.0 both have short hair
damn, I think I discounted her because she's fairly small and girly, but you're right, that was a beauty of a punch
I wasn't paying much attention to her chapters, but I think she at least got some Come Hither shit, even if she as lacking the more overt stuff.
Did she really not at least get a pantyshot or anything?
Also, wasn't she about the same age that the main cast were at the start of the series?
And here it is!
I don't think they're married, I think they were still using last names when they showed up.
I think that's their only cameo together, though Rin did show up in a more recent chapter at the pool with a few other Kimi Machi girls. Her loser hanger-on was nowhere to be seen, though.
>I swear if Fuuka 2.0 was raped or some shit im dropping this
So long as we get a really graphic flashback, I'm down with it.
I suspect he spent the rest of his life hanging round her, being mildly helpful and that she'd notice him.
>all the shit yuzuki put haruto thru
he deserved it, though
>She is severely mentally disabled and I have no idea how she got into college.
Maybe her major's gender studies?
>>all the shit yuzuki put haruto thru
>he deserved it, though
She started though by fucking up his quaint little countryside life, with his cute little unrequited love that would've probably become requited over time.
Can someone please tell me where this story is going? I don't even know why i still read it. I think I just want to know how it ends, but I honestly lost interest even before Fuuka died. Is this series really selling that much that it's keeping it alive even though it is garbage? And if so, is it riding on the Suzuka fanbase or do japs genuinely like the story?
As soon as Seo tried to make this another Solanin rip off it became drop material. I want to think that the fans' reactions wasn't what he has expecting, so he brought in a look-alike with, coincidentally, the same face and name as the main female. The main character isn't even interesting. He gets motivated, then depressed, then motivated, then depressed, then depressed some more, then motivated, then depressed again. Seriously, what's the point? Where is this going?
Yuzuki had it really easy though. There was never a time where her love was unrequited. One boyfriend dies another is just bidding time until he can dump his girlfriend. She never really had her heart broken and she just kinda lazed around waiting for men to come to her.
all of the bad karma Haruto acquired with the other girls he could simply released by cheating on yuzuki with all of them
I don't know because I only read to the truck, I come to these threads to make fun of Iru Machi and seo in general.
I just hate Asano. They're like those kinds of people where you'll hate them the first year after you find their work, love them the next 2 year, indifferent for 1 year, and then purely spiteful from then on.
>Not liking the story of the birth of the LEGEND
Not even SEO is that idiotic.
Fucking over Fuuka 1.0 already garnered a lot of malice. Doing that again would kill this manga.
Probably some family problems or shit.
A male vocalist lead for a band needs to have sex to be good. Or at least be a pimp. Rev up them scenes seo.
Seo probably want this to be about the MC and his band being underdogs and eventually going big through hardwork.
If Seo actually focused on them training and improving themselves instead of introducing haremshit shenaningans every arc, maybe we could have had something here.
different strokes. Asano is top tier in my rankings. I've yet to read a series from him that I don't like. Well except de-de-de-de-dead. Idk wtf is going on with that one.
Back to Seo though, I remember reading Suzuka and thought it was ok, and I don't usually read harems and romance series. I tried giving fuuka a shot but it's just so bad. Why doesn't Seo just end it and start something new? He's had plenty of chances to end the series and he just keeps going.
Seo usually finishes the story at a certain point and makes haremshit until his editor tells him to stop. Kimi no iru machi dragged on for 80 extra chapters of absolutely nothing. Fuuka is starting to get the same vibe. Princess Lucia felt like it from the 10th chapter though
As someone that loves short-haired tomboys Fuuka2.0 needs to win this one. First Nanami and Asuka get NTR'd then Fuuka1.0 gets fucking killed. At least let 2.0 win this one Seo, you owe us.
Or a harem end, that would be cool too.
Starting new properties has really been avoided recently. Name recognition and risk aversion are the trend now. Why take chances on a new series when your current one is doing just fine?
At this point I'm convinced Seo has shifted completely to the ecchi/fanservice category. He may throw in the occasional NTR or ridiculous drama twist but it's the fanservice that will keep Fuuka super interesting.
That was her brother, not her loser follower
I'd root for Koyuki, because she's sort of unconventional, but odds are, we'll only ever get to see Fuuka 2.0 getting plowed on-page if it's by the MC, so I'm rooting for her.
I care more about the wanking fodder than the story, really.
I'm certain it's Itsuka. Loser-Kun(OK, that name could apply to most of the male cast) has less composed-looking hair.
Plus, IIRC you see Itsuka together with his family a few times during the wedding.
His omission would be far more glaring than Loser-Kun 3.0
>He has a fucking name it is Nonomura
I'm sure I'll have forgotten it by tomorrow.
Actually, does the little nothing have a first name?
At any rate, he and Rin were using last names when they showed up in Fuuka, so I doubt they're married, or even all that close.
Also, I think she was given a new love interest in the OVAs, so Seo might've written Loser-Kun 3.0 off as a love interest, so as not to contradict that.
Honestly, what the fuck is Mina even doing at Haruto's wedding? To her, he's just some guy that led her on for years!
She must really be embarrassed by him if she won't use his first name in public(can't blame her, myself)
I read all fuuka two days ago in a rush and I liked it. Truck-san was a dick move and I will forever be mad at that but I really wanna know how aoi turns out to be. I hope she will resemble more a mature fuuka but also have some childish moments like akitsuki
Man this was suffering
I don't think that Yuu is going to go out with Koyuki because she is in the same position as Honoka in Suzuka.
Then Sara could be a choice but there isn't a lot of arguments for that.
Then if Yuu go out with Aoi a lot of fans will be disapointed because she will appear like Fuuka subsitute but I think that SEO already know that and if he manage to avoid this this manga will certainly be great.
Current fuuka is on the verge of an emotional breakdown. What happens next depends on how yuu manages her but I think this might change her for the better. She might look more like old fuuka after this arc or she might look even more different, depends on what seo thinks angers less the fans: if aoi manages to replace fuuka in a way that she doesnt look like a complete cheap move I will be ok with it. As long as the transition is done really well I dont matter. I want to feel fuuka-yuu levels of love flowing again, that is probably the only way to really forget akitsuki death
>winning silver medal
>missing second child's birth
was there ever a bigger beta?
>letting this ikeman nigga flirt with your daughter
I dunno, Haruto could look reasonably built sometimes
Compare that to the pinnacle of human masculinity though
I thought the Kiyomi/Takeshi relationship was more of a case of a nerd loser pursuing a girl who should really be out of his league,and her reciprocating for no apparent reason,while the drummer/Sara relationship's more 2 people who constantly annoy one another, and is a lot more equal.
Sara might be fine as fuck, but the drummer wasa solid athlete, and apparently had different girls throwing themselves at him every week.
Fuuka's world is the only world where the lead singer of a rock band has never gotten laid
come on man, if you're willing to address someone by name in person, but not in public, that's a sign that you're embarrassed to be associated with them.
SEO can't write for shit, but dear lord does he make some really fine bitches. Sad that he doesn't make Hentai. Also are this horrible scans or something? Because RH is dead... ;_;
It was quite a nice/cute touch
>Redhawks are dead
Fuck, that was unexpected. I'm a little disappointed that they didn't at least leave the forums open for a bit longer to talk. This just seems so abrupt.
I guess there's at least the silver lining that Crunchyroll will carry on with the Fuuka translation
hmm, guess this means we won't see a translation for the Princess Lucia tankobon bonus chapter
So, what did everyone make of Redhawkscans, on the whole?
I don't speak Japanese, so I can't vouch for their accuracy, but I liked them. They tended to deliver updates quickly, and they didn't tend to do anything really egregious with their scanlations like excessive swearing, goofy translator jokes or an excess of Japanese terminology.
Also, they delivered on some series bonus content, like the Kimi Machi Fantasy 200 specials, and some tankobon bonus chapters, which scanlators don't always do.
>Seo should give the Machi characters cameos where haruto has become an ultra adulterer
They should also emphasise that Yuzuki's sleeping with every male character in the series behind her back.
After all, virtually all the male characters wanted to screw her
Goddamn haruto was such a stalker, but so beta a stalker that it didn't bother readers, how did moving to a different city to investigate your ex gf/ wait outside her house for days/sneak into her school festival/crash dates at the hospital with her cancer patient boyfriend become romance manga.
If this was written by the Aku no hana dude this would be dark as hell
it's a pity she'll never actually wear this outfit in any chapter of the manga
Kimi no iru machi, she doesn't turn up until chapter 148, though.
>Seo in charge of proper ending
Jesus Christ, he could have given it a proper harem ending but nope, let's pull the usual ambiguous end.
Princess lucia was literally just seo unable to stop the ejaculation he was having in the final 80 chapters of Kimi no Iru machi, so he made a manga purely devoted to mood of those chapters
I would've thought he'd at least laid the love triangle between the MC, Lucia and the bespectacled angel to rest, because the writing was on the wall on that one for quite some time.
Rie was put into the background so much that Bellze seemed more of a secondary heroine than her.
I think Prncess Lucia began about a year after Kimi Machi did, so I doubt that's it.
It was really just his most inentionally inconsequential manga, which wasn't a bad thing in of itself. Seo aiming to make a harmless bit of fluff isn't something I'm too bothered by.
Not very much happened, really. Some average struggling band shenanigans, a new Fuuka showed up, nothing noteworthy, really.
I think he was planning to get back to the triangle issue later, but for some reason he decided to say fuck it and end the manga abruptly.
I guess the ending is not that disappointing because I vastly prefer Rie to Lucia.
Akari 2.0 is best girl though
That's the original Fuuka in the picture I just posted, not the new one. The new girl just shares her name with the old one, even written with the same kanji.
I swear, the kids got much smaller over time.
I like Lucia more than Rie, but I never really rooted for anyone to be paired with the MC.
Rie's signficantly hotter once her glasses come off(while I liked Lucia, I never found her attractive).
The stacked angel and twin-tailed demon girl were the hottest ones in my books.

Every Akari variant is destined to be the best and hottest girl.
It became about çucking a cancer patient and your best friend so hard that he gives up on life and kills himself with risky surgery
And then in order to make it even you go and date a new girl so you can dump her a year later to try to make her as suicidal as cancer patient
It's obvious with all the guilt the only way you'd get back with cancer patient's bitch was if he died, so why did you date someone else if everything worked out perfectly for you?
You know, I kinda miss Seo drawing like that.
I sometimes feel Akari was a favourite of Seo's, as she seemed to get more bonus images in the tankobons than anyone else, apart from Yuzuki
I dropped knim a long time ago, when the little sister was introduced and annoyed the fuck out of every body.
Seo is an idiot and I believe that Japan has a serious problem writing decent romance stories.
Both Fuuka's were switched as newborns at the hospital.
The current Fuuka is Suzuka's legitimate child.
pedo-interest Fuuka imouto, Haruka Akitsuki, ending?
I really want him to become Yamato's son-in-law so they can be betabros
or, you know, two kids born 2(I think) years apart.
the baby gets it from her father's side
