The worst… possible… reaction…

Brief Summary

Haruto’s day started with an unpleasant surprise. Yuzuki forgot to bring their lunches, leaving them at home. Even though they decided to buy bread from a nearby store, the two still fought over who should go. While grabbing her hand, Nanami walked in on them, misunderstanding the situation.

Before he could explain himself, Nanami ran off. Even when consulting his best friend, Takashi cried over how he and Yuzuki look like a “stupid couple”.

Deciding to set things straight, Haruto sought out Nanami to clarify what happened earlier. However, his first attempt failed.

Though planning to try again during the lunch break, his trip to the market took longer since they ran out of bread. Forced to go home to get their lunches, Haruto came back to class just in time… and to make it worse, Yuzuki already ate.

All in all… a very bad day…

However, fate smiled on him as he got a chance encounter after school. He was finally able to talk with Nanami.

But… it quickly turned for the worst possible outcome…

With Nanami now thinking that he likes Yuzuki, Haruto could only stare off in disbelief. However, there might be some hope for him… as Nanami stands outside alone with downcast eyes. Possible hidden romance?

Impressions

Not a very original concept… and it most certainly dodged the question left from the previous chapter. Playing on the “It’s just a misunderstanding” turned to “I’ll help you out” sequence, Yuzuki’s past is tucked away for another time. As for the Haruto x Nanami development I was hoping to see… this spells doom. Even the ending didn’t seem powerful enough to impact the future… as if Nanami already lost.

How will the series turn out? Nanami would try to get Haruto closer to Yuzuki and eventually, out of frustration, he’ll confess to her. At that time, she’ll reveal that she also harbored feelings for him. They would get closer and closer… until Yuzuki’s past catches up to her and she has to move away. Though Haruto and Nanami might have a relationship, Yuzuki would have wormed her way into his heart and when Haruto has to choose between the two… he’ll pick her. Does this development sound familiar? Well, it should since I based this off of Suzuka.

Would it turn out that way? Hopefully not as I’m still rooting for Nanami… But if it does, then the author seems to lack a creative mind, turning this “prequel” of Suzuka into a retelling of it…
