By now, I have to wonder whether there's anything he's good at. With his test results, he should be great at studying and he's working multiple part-time jobs, so he should be decent at various skills. But at this point, it looks like he's incompetent at everything.

@Glomoro He's as normal as a character can be in a manga where even the characters, that are intended to be normal, are completely insane.

@Glomoro that's just how the autor decided to use the trope though. After all he is supposed to be the normal person of his group at first glance, when in reality he is below average.

@namebanned No, seriously. He's not "normal" at all though. That's the level this gag is at. He's an oddity. Putting normal in quotations doesn't help it to become the trope you're talking about, he is LESS THAN HUMAN at various activities until she helps him train his ass off to still be worse than regular people should be. The hardworking characteristic is literally only making him less than average at most of these random things like dancing and singing. That's the joke here, he's the hardworker character but he starts off so bad that he still can't become normal.

@Glomoro that's not what the trope is about, it's just how the autor uses it. Shirogane fills the "hardworking guy" role in this series similar to Rock Lee does on Naruto, both are pretty normal when compared to the rest of the cast.
In Shirogane is played for laughs and his "normal" trait is presented in 2 easy ways to the reader:
1. Fujiwara's traumatic experiences.
2. His sleep schedule.

@namebanned Since when is being so bad at things that people are traumatized by witnessing your attempts anywhere near normal?

Yay! Shijo gets a line! And without her collapsing into a pile of tears on the floor!

Also Tsundere Chika is pretty cute too.

Damn Fujiwara has come a VERY long way from that airhead chaos element she used to be in the beginning, given she had to raise a "child" a few times evolution and maturity was bound to set in, but that Savagery was SAVAGE!!

@kururugikai nah dude, this gag only gives more emphasis to the fact that Shirogane is the "normal guy", the guy who has nothing special but shows that hardwork is better than talent.

God damn Fujiwara fucking chill?. Man so savage.

Man, Fujiwara's got some serious PTSD from all those training arcs.

(Also intersting how, while filling the token genki character slot, she's got a scheming side to her, like how she will shamelessly try to cheat in any game to win.)

@Maxer00 I thought they didn't go that far. Just simply kissing...

i am getting tired of prezz having more and more weakness

at first it was fine because some of that weakness are pretty common to have and it makes prez's characters more lovable.

but right now, its not funny anymore, its just keep destroying his characters. especially sewing or other homecraft skill which he should actually mastered it because its really usefull and also closely related to his "poor" and "have a lot of part time work" trait.

@KafukaPalazzo Am I missing something? How did Fujiwara knew she already did it? I thought she's just kissing with her boyfriend...

@PotatoZero yes, yes it would

When I read "to be continued in the balloon art and ballroom dancing chapters" I thought the author was kidding. Guess I was wrong lol

Wouldn't 'to inflate' be a better title for this chapter?
