Hopefully she'll find herself though...? She really needs to discover more of what SHE wants rather then follow social norms and expectations of others... Otherwise she may repeat the same mistake again towards someone else in the future.

I feel bad for people involved with these types of lesbians, both the guys and girls. The girls get screwed over because the lesbian wants to marry a man, but then the guy gets screwed over not knowing that the woman he's married doesn't even like his gender.

Comphet too strong with Igarashi-senpai. Let's hope she sets herself straight (rather, the opposite) and follows her heart and not her conditioning. It was a good resolution, though I would have liked to see a bit more of exposition on Igarashi's side.

Really a meh arc for sure.

@Madcat6204 @YamiryuuZero Don't forget that it can be really difficult for some people to admit to loving someone of the same sex/genre. I found the reaction of the sempai to Nanoha declaration really telling. Her expression says that she's mindblowned by the realisation that it's an actual possibility.

Oh hell no, you don't just try and turn her into a good person.
She was a straight up bitch in the worse sense.
Not to mention she tried to two time with Chidori before.
"I was just worried about her~"
Yea, no, you almost just ruined her school life as well as her love life.
Luckily her girlfriend is understanding, and her friends are not idiots.

I have such a strong urge to cuss her out more in this comment, but I'll let off.

Senpai has no clue. I think she meant to apologize, but without a clue, it didn't come off well.

I hope her "goodbye" is final.

And, totally different subject, I hope Chidori and Nanoha will be as open about themselves with people that actually matter to them as they have been with this senpai.

ayyy, i tend to read quickly when it's too long so forgive me. Anyway i still can't symphatise because of what she have done and the poor excuse she give to her behavior. I can barely feel any regret in her attitude and what she said. I don't ask her to kneel down, cry and ask for forgiveness but at least show a bit of regret. All we had is "oh you're gay and don't have problem with it ? Guess i should leave then. Oh btw i was just being nice because you were alone" Yeah not like you nearly make her give up on love back then and come backjust to give this excuse because you couldn't fool your kouhai anymore.

Tell that to my country, lol. I'm in southeast Asia, if you publicly said you identifies as lgbt, you'll get hanged. Even in such progressive country, says, America, there's specific part of some of the area in the US that still hated lgbt. Hell, even if someones lives an an accepting environtment, you'll find people who still aren't exactly fine with coming out from the closet with all kind of reasons.

I think @Xystus point still stands. I understand and sympathizes with the Senpai, although she acted in the worst possible way, dragging Chidori along for her trouble. I still think Senpai is an interesting character in this manga, albeit underdeveloped, and acts mostly for some sort of progression for our main couple. I'm fine with it.

@Lilliwyt you actually can't read. Read again what I wrote and you will realize I was talking about the past of real world.

But let's not forget that in the past


They are barely 1 or 2 years between the flashbacks and the current events. It's not like Igarashi time travel from the 80s. Even so she put her own insecurities into Chidori and never really give her a proper explanation. It's lucky Chidori find Nanoha because Chidori was distancing herself of love because of that.

Can we get an F for senpai who totally internalized comphet

I'm probably in the minority that actually sympathize with Senpai. From this chapter we all can see that even Chidori herself has her own hesitation in telling others that she is actually dating a girl. In the current real world, sure, same sex love is so common that it's everywhere. But let's not forget that in the past, being a homosexual gets frown upon too, and people aren't as accepting as it is today. Even in certain part of the world today, there still homophobic people, especially in more traditional society.

It's very sad that Igarashi was afraid of committing to her feelings and chose to bury it instead, and in the process deeply hurt Chidori. Instead of having the courage to love another person of the same sex, she chose to pretend to be "normal" and dated a guy. Certainly, this is gonna be one of her regrets in her life and there's nothing she can do but to move on.

It's just a prank brah..

@Madcat6204 Exactly my interpretation of this mini arc!
She clearly wanted more than she cared to admit and ended up losing everything!
Avatar
This small arc served to have them admit to someone outside themselves they're dating. It may have been to someone who is not going to be anywhere near their social circle, but the mental barrier of keeping it a secret is still likely to be significantly weakened by this. I think they'll be *way* more willing to admit this to other people in the future.
