One of the best chapters is finally posted on batoto.
IIRC, the translation is done up to chap 59, waiting to finish typesetting and redraw.
Thanks for letting me know. The other thread doesn't have the title in OP so I couldn't tell from skimming through the catalog. I will just dump the rest of the chapter here anyways.
This manga is great, underrated though. I guess the humor just doesn't click with many people, and the premise isn't something that grand or super interesting just from the description.
You mean Hitomi and NItta? I do realize that most Hitomi-centric chapter is my absolute favourite. Anzu ones are mostly feel. Hina is an odd one, I kinda like her autism and her recent development. Nitta doesn't always have great moment but he sure do have many glorious ones, some that brough me to tears from laughing.
Why am I suddenly imagining a scene where Nitta and Himoti are at a social gathering/matchmaking party, unable to back out of it because they're afraid of being called out as a student and yakuza, and both just escalate until they end up at a wedding ceremony.
That's all of the chapter.
>Utako somehow is getting worse
That's actually a good idea. Maybe they could even marry for real but don't do any of the couple stuff while still figuring out what the fuck just happened months later. Hitomi could even still keeping her dual persona, being a highschool girl and a businesswoman + mother (of Hina). But that could be too much even for this manga.
>Businesswoman, high school girl, wife of Yakuza boss
>Prime Minister of Japan, Businesswoman, high school girl, wife of Yakuza boss
>General Secretary of the UN, Businesswoman, high school girl, wife of Yakuza boss
So many paths.
C'mon. Petty as Nitta is he's really competent. Nitta actually points out earlier he doesn't have a lot of experience in salaryman type business stuff so this is pretty new to him. What he is good at is leveraging his people, money, and influence in the best ways a criminal can. He totally deserves that respect and that party.
While the joke seemed to be initially that Hitomi was the last vestige of competency in her circle of acquaintances, the joke grew to the point where everyone is actually just normal and Hitomi is actually just a genius. This chapter just reproves that Nitta was skilled to begin with, which is something we forget because he rarely shows his edge and gets upstaged by espers.
That would be the case if not for the fact that she's never felt like she's been defeated before and that his victory actually did impress upon her the idea of what it means to be actually passionate about work, which she has always treated as an obligation after being swept up in the adult world. If anything he taught her the meaning of her own words "No passion, no work".
She's already blanking out her past as a bar owner. I don't remember when she started doing that, though. She actually seemed to be on the up and up in the last chapter featuring her? So I found it weird that she's mentally phasing it out now in this chapter.
you can see on all their faces how they actually are praising Nitta, because they know how fearsome Hitomi is.
Utako only has a face of despair, because she didn't do anything and Anzu is the only one out of the loop
Which is actually a point in Nitta's favor since he didn't underestimate her. He recognize her as a threat and did everything he can to take her down. He did everything he could to win, which deserves a lot more respect that the other consulting companies that didn't try.
