Rain and Maria debating on Kaminari ships first came about all the way back in Chapter 3. It's come up a few times sporadically since then, but it's never been the major character interaction I originally meant for it be between these too. So, with that said, I hope this page - and the next few - don't fall too flat for focusing on it.

This is the first time Emily's weighing in on this ship too. And she's taking Maria's side!? XD

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

My next round of dental work is currently slated for November, but as I've discussed, I've still got a lot to save. If you can help, I will be very grateful. If not, no hard feelings. Thank you, either way.

This better not be foreshadowing that a pair will change up, haha

I think more it's going to point out rain only assumed the other ship because it was straight and share had not realized she Wasnt until not that long ago

i'm gonna have to agree with Zoey here. i think it's more of a reference to Rain's mindset. Rain always saw signs pointing to Hokori and Kaminari because back when she was reading it, she still not only thought she was attracted to guys, but thought she had to be. so she subconsciously might have blocked out any signs between Aneko and Kaminari in order to reinforce that mindset. now, with the anime being more explicit about it, along with Rain's own change in perspective, she might even go back through the manga and see all the signs she missed.

Well, Rain's dating Emily, not Gavin who Hokori represents. So if anything it's backshadowing. Or maybe a hint for things to come on the animated series.

I'm not gonna lie, when I started reading the comic, I thought Rain and Gavin would be a couple or date at some point.

i always shipped rain and gavin (raven?) too! mostly cuz gavin is like my bf goals ig but that was before emily- i like rain and emily together much better! i never really liked rain and rudy or the hints of like rain and maria im glad the story moved past that. but i think the ships we have now are endgame like i love rain and emily, maria and chanel, gavin and ana, and maybe ryan and rudy???

Might just be commentary on the early Gavin vs Maria ship wars.

Three things:
1. What's your favorite manga/anime? (JJBA for me)
2. I've never heard of the anime branching off from the manga... is it based off of the light novel or something?
3. What genre is this..? It's not quite shōnen...
SURPRISE 4!(look, I didn't expect this either, ok?) So, the characters are all very skilled at this point. Does this take place post-timeskip?

1. Currently To Your Eternity or Oddtaxi. Don't know if that's of all time, but they're some of the best ones I've watched in a long time.

2. Most anime are based on manga, as far as I know. There's exceptions of original anime, or sure, ones based on light novels, but a lot of it comes from manga.

3. Kaminari could probably just be narrowed down to fantasy to keep things simple. But also, it's drama, it's adventure, there's action, there's comedy, there's romance. So... you know, that.

4. I'm not sure what you mean by "the characters are skilled". Timeskipped to half an hour later, maybe. It's the same day as the rest of the chapter, which is only a couple weeks after graduation.

Agreed, Oddtaxi was amazing. Also, it's original anime!
TK 1st Sep 2021, 4:16 PM edit delete reply
Actually it's really common for an anime to branch off from a manga when the manga takes too long to end. Some examples are the og Full Metal Alchemist and Blue Exorcist season 1.

I learned of this comic...2 days ago and blew through the entire archive, laughing and crying and feeling everything. It's outstanding and I wish I knew of this sooner. But I'm glad to be part of the journey now!

Also, this better not be showing a pair swap so soon :P

Man, it's hard not to read this as a meta indication that Rain and Maria could still get together.

It probably wouldn't even make sense this late in the story.

And Emily is good for Rain.


Dang it, hopes, go back down!

just do what i do

Start over from the beginning.
MoonWingJ 1st Sep 2021, 11:41 PM edit delete reply
Think we should tell Maria about that doujin Emily bought in an earlier chapter?
Guest 2nd Sep 2021, 4:39 PM edit delete reply
Wasn't the previous stip referencing people shipping Rain and Maria over Rain and Gavin?

Is this implying another possible future ship change?
Absentia 3rd Sep 2021, 2:06 AM edit delete reply
well we already know Rudy and Ryan are hinting towards a relationship. i doubt anything big will change with our current three relationships, but Ky and Allison both still are single. maybe one or both of them will start dating. (maybe even to each other)

Even though the last time, Kaminari was a really obvious allegory for Rain and her friends, I'm happy to see the anime as just something they're watching and discussing together.
Also, maybe the anime departs from the manga. The love interest could be Hokori in the manga, but Aneko in the anime, especially if all the manga ever did was hint at the pairing

Got to love Maria just popping up there to brag about her ship setting sail
