    There is not much in this chapter to see except Miyabi waiting for her chance to take Natsuo and this new girl, whose motives will be explored in the next chapters. I think she will have a role similar to the one held in Good Ending by Mei (the girl who harbored Seiji after his breakup with Yuki). Rui is clearly still in Natsuo's mind, while he still struggles with himself. He seemed in chapter 217 to realize he has to change himself, but at the moment he is still prisoner of his loss of self-confidence. I think the club activities are bad for him in this moment, as they constantly remind him about his "uselessness". Let's see what will happen in the next chapter.

      I think the club activities are bad for him in this moment, as they constantly remind him about his "uselessness".

      I agree. I think he's making himself feel miserable, BUT it may also be good in a way since he isn't refusing to meet people and lock himself in his shell. His "recovery" should be gradual and that may be OK for one of his first step.

      1. Bbluelion2019-02-07 07:41:36.562Z

        As told, if Natsuo continues to stay in his "daily routine" he will not overcome his issues, medically the writer's block is something you overcome by looking for new experiences and not by staying in the place where you feel at the worst... Anyway, this new girl... if you looked at Good Ending there was a similar situation after Yuki breaks up with Seiji. An older girl called Mei (who also recently had a breakup with his boyfriend) harbors Seiji at her home (as Seiji ran away from school and his home for desperation). She helped Seiji in understanding the reasons behind the breakup, and made him realize it was his own weakness the cause (because Yuki had proposed him the "ultimate proof of love" and he backed up). I think this girl may cover a similar role.

        I wonder though. What will happen between Miyabi and Natsuo. Will Miyabi confess and what will Natsuo do? Will he thank her for being one of the key reasons for his eventual comeback? Don't have much interest in her but I wonder what the author san will do.

        1. Bbluelion2019-02-07 08:09:53.272Z

          Miyabi for sure will do something, we will see how it would develop. But, if Natsuo starts to be a little of a man, she will be probably turned down (like Oonuma in GE).

          1. Zzebrat192019-02-07 08:11:04.714Z

            How do you think Natsuo will react? Will he be pissed that she's one of the reasons that Rui ended up breaking up with him and directly or indirectly blame her or will he be more mature and be appreciative?

            1. Bbluelion2019-02-07 08:14:54.810Z

              I personally would have cut the ties with her way before the breakup, but Natsuo is not me. So I think he wil ltry to make her understand nicely she has been more a nuisance than an help.

              1. Zzebrat192019-02-09 12:36:31.408Z

                Well I think if he had cut ties, then that would be pretty bad. You shouldn't cut ties with your friends for things like that. Was she a nuisance to him though? I don't think so.

                1. Bbluelion2019-02-09 20:20:54.723Z

                  She is trying to ruin your relationship with your girlfriend, so it is a nuisance, or better, he should see her as such. So, or he had to be very, very clear he does not like her as a woman, or cut the ties. Thats how it should work.

                  1. Zzebrat192019-02-10 06:35:04.598Z

                    He can tell her that he doesn't view her as a love interest and then just say that they should better stay as friends. Cutting ties because of that would be very immature and short sighted. If he would have done that, then yes he would be a very toxic person.

                    1. Bbluelion2019-02-10 09:30:53.274Z

                      Yes, i meant cut ties if she insisted. He had to be firm in rejecting her, but he was not.

                      1. Zzebrat192019-02-22 21:20:05.954Z

                        Yeah he's too soft. But that being said, not sure how clear or firm he can be in his rejecting that would make Serizawa understand it. She is pretty stubborn and basically would do everything to achieve her goal at this point.

        Already a new girl?

          hmmmm it seems that the author doesn't wanna the story plot guessed so easily by the readers..... more drama ckckc

          1. Mmakanzie2019-02-07 06:54:19.700Z

            The new girl will probably help Natsuo progress. Not entirely certain.

              Introducing the new girl is the plot progressing device. Pretty weak move.

              Yeh a bit weird. Bad choice imo

              1. Mmakanzie2019-02-07 06:54:50.879Z

                Depends on how the author develops it. Considering the manga is getting close to its finish, it may be a good choice to introduce the girl now.

              The older girl is a bit older than Natsuo I guess? I had hoped the author would've focused on Natsuo a bit differently and not just throw in a new character........

              1. Mmakanzie2019-02-07 06:53:51.557Z

                She's probably in her 3rd of 4th year of college or so. If I recall correctly, Natsuo isn't allowed to drink yet but she was so I guess she's at least a year older. So 20-21?

                  I assume she's in her early twenties.

                  1. Bbluelion2019-02-07 09:12:16.058Z

                    She said two years older than Natsuo, Fumiya and the neighbour. So she's 21.

                    1. Zzebrat192019-02-07 13:06:59.479Z

                      Interesting. she looks much older lol

                  1. BBidji2019-02-06 08:59:52.601Z

                    so quite here on comment section....... Where's the hell Rui fans??? Chapter 217 made u guys down??? I'm truly put my respect to those Hina fans lol :))

                    1. Mmakanzie2019-02-07 06:52:41.029Z

                      Some people got super upset in the previous chapter lol Not that I blame them but some take a manga a bit too seriously........

                        Makes me curious, does Rui have more fans than Hina????

                        1. Bbluelion2019-02-07 09:14:08.186Z

                          In the manga Rui won practically all popularity polls hands down.

                          1. Zzebrat192019-02-07 12:33:15.316Z

                            HUh didn't know that. But that makes sense. Cheers

                              Rightfully really. She's easily the best character out there.

                        I hope this girl isn't trying to get Natsuo's heart and is just someone having a similar situation to Natsuo, so that he has someone to confide in and release his emotional stress. Though... I have a feeling they'll become close and eventually Natsuo will fall for her and feels guilty about it.. then somehow Rui spots them together and thinks that Natsuo has moved on. Lol I might be getting ahead of myself but I imagine that she might be that type of character.

                        1. Bbluelion2019-02-06 19:09:43.136Z

                          Rui is still in the US and she will not be back before 5 months at least.. maybe Hina could spot them.

                          1. Mmakanzie2019-02-07 06:49:35.688Z

                            Hina could spot them
                            What do you mean here?

                            1. Bbluelion2019-02-07 07:32:12.232Z

                              Mr. hanafubuki here speculated that Rui could spot the new girl, but I said that Rui will be still in the US for a long time, so if someone had to spot them, it should be Hina

                              1. Mmakanzie2019-02-09 06:24:07.049Z

                                Oh OK. That makes sense then.

                            New girl will definitely try win over Natsuo eventually. Maybe not immediately but definitely in the near future. But who knows, she may be the one to help Natsuo progress as a character.

                            Feel like the author introducing a new girl to progress the story is indicative that she doesn't know to move the plot forward in a more skilled manner. Not sure what I expected, but nevertheless let down.

                              Everyone hating but I dig the new girl. She's pretty cute and pretty funny. She could heat up the next chapters for the better!
