Lmfao, I love his mother when she says to him ''How come you get to date such a pretty girl'' , like she's his best friend .  

Poor Aki ;(
That's my harems are always the better choice. Everyone is happy :D

Just went to imanga site, they confirmed there will be another chapter incoming this saturday   :D

Was Aki-Chan always this cute? Even Nacchan looked cuter than usual, it was all around cuteness...this chapter went pretty much how I expected the meeting to go, the father saying something inapropriate, the mother being easy going and supportive of Nacchan, and Ei-Chans mother starting to get an idea how amazing her sons achievements are.

 

Nacchan has some pretty impressive 'this girl is interested in my boyfriend radar' the fact that Sasaki didn't register on her radar must mean she doesn't consider her a threat...it's a good thing her radar doesn't work overseas, looking at the cover of volume 29 thats been posted here, looks like Marou goes back to the US sometime after this tournament , and in pure shounen manga fashion you know Marcia will end up with a crush on him.

Aki just breaks my heart... :'(

Nacchan mentioned a while back that her father was pretty serious. I forgot the exact word, all I can say is that she lied lol.

 

Look at these parents, not a single care in the world. Aside from him asking what exactly has she done for him ( lol nice going, make her as awkward as possible ).

 

Also Nacchan has that "girlfriend radar".

 

It looks to me that this other girl ( her name escape me right now ) is going to be affected by this in her upcoming matches. I wonder if her mother is going to catch on that, she didn't seem to realize much.

I think what she said was that he was over enthusiastic and cheered at her matches extremely loud which embarrassed her. Thus "serious" i guess an over doting parent?

Poor Aki. You can cry on my shoulder if you like.

and in a single chapter, the story progressed like a mile.

 

of course we have 10 ch of tennis~~

in before, he loses this match

IDK why, but i think he will lose too... :s

wow this last chapter was funny as hell XD

And an overload of cuteness *¬*

This chapter was good

"I don't get all A anymore, half of them B now" this crack me up.. I love how straightforward the main characters are and yeah, as I thought it's genetic.. XD

 

And Aki's overreacting and Natsu jealousness were cute in its own way..

I thought she realized what was wrong when she ran off sorta crying.

 

Well I hope so cause that was the most obvious over-reaction of all, which makes it so clear what's happening.

Her name is Aki, and i guess her mother is much more ruthless that you imagine. 

 

My guess is that

Spoiler

 

im curious to know if we are going to ever see a whole girls' match anytime soon.

I think the author was clever enough to realize love triangles fucking suck. Natsu would be much less sympathetic if she was one of those indecisive shoujo heroines that waver between three different guys.

i rode a manga before that a triangle relationship turned into a f*****g threesome and here there was all sort of brokenheart :P

Watching the anime makes me question: "What happened to Takuma?"

Hahaha, i know what you mean, he got beat up by Ei-chan, staying out for now better than a brokenheart

Watching the anime makes me question: "What happened to Takuma?"


Spoiler

mh no i dont think so. Takuma is the middle level monster to beat. Low level bosses are Araya, Ide & Okada too. Then there's Takuma and Nabae, and last Ike.

time for romcom

I'm really hoping this doesn't mean he can't sleep, and then is so nervous he has a really hard time in his next match (or at least a really hard time over a few chapters)...

But I'm pretty sure that's exactly what will happen...
