Also is it me or does Hibiki seem nicer in this volume?

Didn't that novelist a volume ago give up her career and found love and a family afterwards? That's almost supporting the older lady's point.
She's prettier with her hair up.

It's a novel that doesn't really need to exist

Do you think that you can have a happy family
While going all in on your novels?
>"Be that as it may, this is really just a story about the future"
But that's still in the future.

You missed part of the third panel, which the fourth panel is in response to.
"I hope that was useful"
"Not really"
"I guess so."

>"People know how they function"
I know that people are people.

>"Maybe you'll get decide on it about 15, or 6 years down the road" [TN: I'll look at this later, weird sentence]
That's probably something you decide now, when you're 15 or 16

Oh, boy. This gives me Keijo flashbacks. Thanks, anon.
Oh yeah, you missed part of the third panel. I don't think there's a common word for being 60 in English, but octogenarian might work. So it'd go:

"Ahaha, I mean, whenever I talk with you, it's like I'm nursing someone"
You're almost an octogenarian, right?
I'm 39
I can't believe you can write novels when you don't know what 'octogenarian' means.

In his defense, 8 years old hibiki looks very cute.
I don't think the thread will last that long.
This thread has lasted through my 9 hours of sleep.
wat dissapoints me a little about this manga is that despite being a bout literature, the author does not gives a example of how hibikis or rikas writing is like.
He gave the opening to Hibiki's story in the first page of chapter 8, but that's really it
it's a lot to ask for to be fair.
Jesu, how can the mom let hibiki alone with his son. Knowing but his obsession.
Maybe she's as fucked up as him. His strange behavior has to come from somebody.
Look at the art of the manga. Now you want to read a masterpiece that made 2 autors retire?

Nah, there's one last chapter in the volume. But I have to run something else by the TS anon now. Then I'll finish it.
So we can let this thread die and see you tomorrow?
Possible. Most likely I'll finish the volume since there's space then start the new volume on another thread. Like a clean slate sorta thing.

Yes, this is the pairing i wanted. And of course kayo is cute
Worst pair why would you want it?
Good on them, I guess.
They're the only ones that seem like halfway decent people.l, so I want to see them happy.

I kind if like how multifaceted everyone is in this manga though.
Don't guess. State what you know.
>They're the only ones that seem like halfway decent people
I guess you are right about that/
Hibiki is a decent person. She will never beat someone thatdoes not deserve it
I'm waiting for the reason why she hit someone on the back of the head with a chair, or throwing a microphone at someone.
Decent is being generous.
