Yoshimatsu Hotaka is the president of the manga club and is always diligent with his school life and club activities, but even though he looks like a regular honor student in reality we have that there is something really odd with him; he has this bitter ~ heavy ~ melancholic look and is almost always looking at Awaya Niki, the beautiful, bright, radiant, super cheerful swimming club's female ace.

Why does Hotaka act all bitter like that? And what will become of him as the sports teacher orders him to have at least 'one secret swimming class lesson' where no one is supposed to be looking, whereas he normally skips class activities due to personal matters?

This manga made me physically feel nauseous, and not in a good way. People looking to read it should read my spoiler.

Eh, sallright. The only problem is that its 115% Takemiya Yuyuko, instead of the usual 100. Which is really weird, considering this one was a collaborative effort.
Early stage on the story
@Lan Oh, I've got to that part, so maybe I did finish it already after all. It probably sucks so I won't bother re-reading it, thanks for the spoiler anyway.
The sweet smell of sweet home alabama
Oh hey I remember this one! Was real good until the ending gave me whiplash from the double-take.
Everything cool until they fucked it up
Can someone spoil the ending to me so I know if this is worth finishing? I don't remember where exactly I stopped reading but the story wasn't in a good place so I don't know if this is a ride I want to get back on...
@sketches people usually rate garbage series a 10 so judge yourself
@sketches the ending was... It smells of an axed series
@sketches its only 23 chapters, go for it 🙃
It's currently rated at a 6.53. Should I read this? Some of the comments seem to support reading this. 😐
I totally forgot this even existed thanks for the upload.
Fully Recommend reading this manga to anyone.
Sorry for the people that have already read it when we first released the chapters a few years back. No archive upload function on mdex I think, so welp.
Blonde Koala girl falls for generic romcom protagonist #31.

Kidding aside, I find this quite sweet at times, and for romance, it does enough to pique my interest. I won’t spoil the ending but I’m on the side that didn’t like it or thinks that it could’ve been handled better.
Worse than expected, way better than rating indicates. Foreshadowing could've been done more efficiently though - but i haven't read Toradora, so i don't know whose fault is that exactly. Maybe there's an appeal in watching an avalanche in slow motion right down from seeing very first pebble move, but personally i prefer "gotcha" narratives.

Overall it was a nice read, and parting words can feel poignant at some level. I'd probably gave in to vocabulary a little, but it left me with nice, "summery" aftertaste. After all, at its most basic level, it's a slice of life story of one teenager's one year's one season.

edit: Oh yeah, if you do happen to have an opportunity, please go with official translation. Its better choice of words significantly adds to reading experience - for example, final chapter's closing line has been rephrased from ambiguously ominous "I will make you immortal" (which given the right context could very well be something a killer would say) to more fitting and appropriately moody .

The ending :(
Read this back in Batoto. . .

Overtly dramatic at some points but decent in my opinion.
