I do like the little bits of progression here. Nagatoro letting Senpai know that next time he should take some initiative and invite her on events like this (almost like a date ?). Even Nagatoro's friends (one of them now has a name apparently) seem to be acting more along the lines of nudging their friend and Senpai together. I also appreciate that Nagatoro and Senpai got to enjoy the festival by themselves at the end instead of the author taking the easy way out and having Nagatoro put the collar back on Senpai as a means of a cheap punchline and as tribute to the Gods of Status-Quo.

Good chapter.

Also, I have a question for everyone here; Since it seems that Nagatoro's friends appear to be low-key helping their friend and Senpai become a couple, do you all think that them joining in on Nagatoro applying Senpai with lotion with their feet in chapter 23 was less of them messing with Nagatoro and Senpai and more of them making sure Nagatoro snapped out of her bullying mode she was slipping into before they intervened?

Could have used a little more blood and screaming but a nice date is fine too.

Okay, no one's mentioned this yet, but on the last panel, who said what? The invitation to continue going around the festival is on Senpai's side while the stuttered agreement is beside Nagatoro. Kind of a reversal of their personalities.

Whatcha all think? Did Senpai just catch Nagatoro off guard by immediately putting her suggestion about invites to work?

@KazumaLee94 I think that interpretation of the lotion incident would be more of a case of 20/20 hindsight or something. I think the author wants Nagatoro to still have a little sadistic streak in her even as she's obviously shifting in her feelings toward Senpai & becoming possessive.

@Markgraf:[...] she's obviously shifting in her feelings toward Senpai & becoming possessive.
I have a different theory about this: She had feelings for her sempai from the start of the manga. Something(s) happened before the story began. Maybe something on her first high school day, in the summer vacation before it or even in their middle school days. Maybe she looked different back then and sempai can't recognise her. She always had that sadistic part within her, but now shows it openly, to hide her embarrassment when interacting with him. Both joy and camouflage in the same package. Either that or, as you have implied, she picked him because he is her type and she has a certain distaste for other types of boys. (We've seen so far she hates the actively flirting type of boys.)

Hmm. Since the friend trio seem to have mellowed out somewhat, I wonder what the next hurdle is gonna be.

I love how this is such a backwards manga. The guy is the Tsundere, and he's the damsel in distress, the girl is the jerk (instead of the guy being the jerk in Shoujo manga) and basically the dude is like the male version of the plain protagonist of a typical shoujo series.
