Did he just... [get low-key horny over her spit?](https://gyazo.com/7ac300b3f29904eaf2c9b8260d64172b) Also, SUMI LIVES!


ArCSelkie37

Probably thinking "what a waste, she coulda just spat in my mouth and I would have gargled it all day". Sorry for that image.


MgMaster

Gotta steel oneself for the part where he uses the same toilet paper as her.


ImADouchebag

Same roll or same sheets?


Cammerv8

I don’t think he has the balls to date a dump in her place. It looks like this could be the next chapter

Kazuya: this is new method of water recycling

Could've easily said "let's not comment that".... But nah this MF had to give us the image ![img](emote|t5_izi65|2410)


Cammerv8

im not sorry


heavy4b

Serious discussion Kazuya find that chizuru is not perfect in this case . Other wise she would have spit clearly into the hole of the sink. That is a crack to the perfect girlfriend Persona. 😅


Neosovereign

lol, this reminded me of the first time I saw my GF brush her teeth. Instead of spitting like a totally normal person, she basically lets it run out of her mouth. I have no idea why, that is just how she learned/did it her whole life. Maybe not perfect, but those quirks are what make people real. I actually wish we DID get some non-perfect or weird trait that she has, but I can't really think of any.


MgMaster

LMAOOO - character development coming from observing how one spits would be quite something.


Neopacificus

Also you have to cover your mouth with your hand so that others can't see that. Learned from YOUR NAME.


fancydirtgirlfriend

Yes. Yes he did.


GTR722

Oh yes, we know he will demand the "spit" in a certain situation later xD


GTR722

Did she just.... Fucking confess while brushing? XD

Most casual shit ever lol

Kazuya is so awkward haha, bursting out yelling out of nowhere Chizuru is too, she has no idea how to express affection. And she totally zipped up her jacket because she was embarrassed. I totally called Sumi showing up soon for Chiz’s birthday, I bet Kazuya will talk with her again about ideas for a present


Varicus

> And she totally zipped up her jacket because she was embarrassed. I don't think so. If that was the case, [why didn't she zip up yesterday](https://mangadex.org/chapter/bb9ace3b-e72b-4256-8876-01171aa205b2/7)? She probably noticed that Kazuya was not able to listen to her last time, because he was distracted. Maybe she didn't want him drooling toothpaste all over himself while the sight of her made him forget to close his mouth while brushing.


Overall-Initial-4290

I swear I need to get my wife the shorts Chizuru wears.

I guess you could call it a hunch

AmchadAcela

I think this chapter shows that Chizuru appreciates Kazuya for being considerate and that she is starting to remove some of the barriers she created. I am happy to see Sumi back and I hope we finally find out more info about Chizuru’s cat.


fancydirtgirlfriend

Chizuru has a cat? I don’t remember this, where was it mentioned?


LewisSmith8

Chizuru's Line avatar is a cat, the backside of it, if i recall..


fancydirtgirlfriend

Oh yeah, that’s right!


Seinen_Shounen

neighbour's cat


Varicus

I just found the message from grandma Sayuri again: "[I have to go in again for my periodic checkup. Feed Jet for me please.](https://mangadex.org/chapter/5bb90b39-b838-4021-bbb3-a753159f8ac1/18)" And Chizurus avatar is a cat, so I thought Jet must be Sayuris cat. Someone else mentioned that he probably is a community cat who is fed by all the people in the area, which makes sense. So maybe Jet pays them a visit next time!


AmazingPatatas

In the early chapters! She tells Sayuri to feed the cat iirc

SIGAAMDAD

Its the shit we lovingly wait for and read. God I love this manga. We wait for a week for kazuya to freak out about something random (mostly just sharing a room w/ chiz), get weird chapters, but hey, that’s what we enjoy about this unique manga.

Not only does Chizuru more openly sharing space with Kaz during brush teeth by allowing him stand close in a room but they also have a lovely conversion that hasn’t been happen a long time .... Chizuru sharing her though to Kaz how she like ppl in that way so Kaz could take notes of her ideal BF...another lovely chapter that leave me beg for more now....dang reiji is slowly feed me drug to get me hook on each chapter progression now

mcnametook

That was a real wholesome chapter, also liked how Chiz hesitated when she said "I love.." ALSO SUMI IS BACK LETS FKING GOOOOOOOOOOOO


MangaManOfCulture

Not sure how I feel about Chizuru assigning herself the "stranger" label from Kazuya's viewpoint. Maybe there's some insecurity or denial on her part but "a friend's home" seems a lot more appropriate and not a stretch in any way. I could have bought her fishing for the affirmation of their relationship being more than strangers from Kazuya but he was apparently too engrossed with his tooth-brushing to pick up on it.


a_Bear_from_Bearcave

Yeah, maybe it's cultural difference but how is it weird to use home bathroom to brush your teeth instead of going to school or something, when your friend/acquaintance invited you because you're temporarily homeless? Unless someone tells you straight up not to use, it's kinda obvious, in fact it's normal for your host to tell you the local rules for using bathroom. Though I guess with that divider they're in kinda weird place.


ThespianException

That stood out to me as well. They've known each other for like 2 years at this point! I understand things move very slowly, but they're not strangers anymore.


-hh

Yes, the “stranger” wording, along with the zip-up were two small items that we’ll probably over-analyze. My take: I’d hope that the “stranger” could be just a shortcoming in language translation. Similarly, the zip-up could be as simple as Chizuru knowing how virgin-kun Kazuka stresses over seeing too much .. stimulation .. so she did that to be polite by decreasing the source of his discomfort (or at least how she’s thinking about things). Time will tell.


LivingStory18

This really was a whole chapter of them brushing teeth…


heavy4b

Kawaii chapter


Sirlight85

I wish to know what is thinking Chizuru right now. And for right now i mean since they are living together. We can see she looks Kazuya all time but what you guys think he is thinking? Also she has ALWAYS a poker face, 0 expression, why in hell? SMILE SOMETIME FOR GOD SAKE!


cloud_junior_

I never knew that even the act of brushing teeth can be an important part of the plot hahahaha. What's next after toothbrush and toothpaste? Sharing umbrellas?


purpleiancurtis

Sharing umbrellas is actually the classic romcom trope :D

ComprehensiveOwl4807

So this arc is going to go through Kazuya freaking out over the day-to-day actions that he gets to share with Chizuru. \>Groan< Please let us see a chapter from Chizuru's perspective.


Narrow-Gas9493

Finally Chizuru put his mind at ease! Also SUMI IS BACK!!! REJOICE!


purpleiancurtis

Huge improvement from the double negative, this was actually a half confession, saying something in a generic manner while completely befitting the person directly with you.


Inevitable_Milk5370

I don't know if I'm the only one, but I love it when Kazuya sends a verdammt in these stressful moments. it seems like a comical way of saying shit or shit without others understanding. like us brazilians talking fuck. kkkkkkkkkk


Varicus

"Verdammt" is german for "damn", and yes, it probably is another way for him to swear. He might have picked that up from Mami, she is doing german foreign language studies (as was mentioned [in the Sumi spin-off](https://mangadex.org/chapter/653aaed5-45fb-487c-8bbe-9d6f2bc220aa/8)).


Inevitable_Milk5370

Or he learned that from the time he took the director's place in the German class in the movie arc because I think he mentions those German classes. however I think it's interesting because it's different than if he just said damn. I don't think it would have the same impact. And it reminds me of my friends saying fuck or shit in the middle of a sentence in Portuguese. it's something I find funny and casual.


Inevitable_Milk5370

* shit or shit means shit or fuck or in brazilian portuguese "porra ou cacete". Google translator sometimes leaves me in the lurch. hahahahaha


hell-schwarz

.... this is how I read this chapter: Chizuru: I love people who brush their teeth kazuya: Fuck, now I have to pretend that i actually brush my teeth


AmazingPatatas

But that's not waht she said... She said that she loved that Kazuya was being considerate.


hell-schwarz

I'm pretty sure she said "omg I love guys who brush their teeth" and was amazed that Kazuya has some human decency left in him.


Varicus

She literally said: "[Besides, you're in a strangers home. (You probably feel that way.) Of course you'd be considerate.](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/16/) [I love that.](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/17/) [I love people like that.](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/18/)" So in context, it is pretty obvious she loves that he is being considerate. But [based on Kazuyas reaction](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/20/) he might only have listened to half of what she said and now thinks she loves people who brush their teeth.


sumit7474_

There was a nice reflection in the mirror


Slyric_

SUMI IS BACK


MoseSchruteFarms

I really enjoyed this chapter. Mainly because of one thing. The actual effort you saw both characters take. And yes Sumi is great but let’s touch on Chizuru and Kazuya’s story this chapter. Chizuru told Kazuya that there is a characteristic he displays that she loves. That is a big admission considering she is the worst at outright communication. 🤣However this is important for Kazuya who has always looked at his worth by how others, especially Chizuru, view him. I am often here criticizing Reiji maintaining the status quo. Especially with Chizuru since her actions are really determining their development. Because most of the time we get the same old formula & that is boring. Kazuya simping/fantasizing/freaking out and a small effort from Chizuru which we need to infer. Or Chizuru doing something inconsiderate and getting a pass because she’s the Rental Waifu. That has been the formula forever. And with the format of this living together arc where each day of this month is taking several chapters to tell, 250+ chapters in, I know a lot of us want to see actual progress in this “Investigation”. Especially after “Paradise” & the ghosting, I disliked how Chizuru was looking. Like she was selfish, using him for comfort and being inconsiderate of his feelings. While they are both responsible for things in their relationship, a lot of their current issues are Chizuru’s fault. Even some of Kazuya’s confidence issues now, which he tried to move past before, a lot of his doubts about himself because of her rejection and lack of communication. Even with the current “Investigation”. The only way to really move forward is for Chizuru to put in real effort. And while small gestures like the keychain and bath are cute, they don’t show actual effort from Chizuru to really connect with Kazuya in a meaningful way. Those things are cute fan service for sure, but narratively I see that stuff as stalling. Because for Kazuya nothing compared to the actual comfort she gives when she really communicates with him. That show she is actually taking this “Investigation” seriously & really repairing the damage she caused by telling him he has worth in her eyes. Regarding Sumi, it’s great she is back and planning something for Chizuru’s birthday because I don’t want Kazuya and Mini taking the lead there. This whole living together thing is too much as is, it’s also nice seeing Sumi being assertive. Maybe that leads to seeing Mami, Umi and Ruka again. I would love for Ruka/Mami to find out about the living together stuff or Umi to reveal what he told Chizuru in Tiger’s Den. It would be interesting if we find out Umi made a move on Chizuru back then and she shot him down. Or if he told her he thinks Kazuya is a good match, which freaked her out back then. Or even if Kazuya sees Umi at Chizuru’s birthday and feels insecure, like he will never measure up. Or if Ruka confronts Chizuru about being back in Kazuya’s life after ghosting him. Stuff like that is more interesting than formulaic fan-service housemate tropes. I’m looking forward to getting into more meatier story points like Chizuru’s birthday, Ruka, Chizuru’s play, maybe Kazuya’s future. Looks like Chizuru’s birthday may occur in the next few weeks for readers, so maybe Reiji will give fans a Christmas gift and Chizuru will tell Kazuya she cares about him. She doesn’t need to say she loves him or anything, just cares so he doesn’t need to constantly question his self worth like he has been for 260 chapters & fear she is going to ghost him again. TDLR: 7/10…. Great chapter! Above average because normal tropes aside, the status quo was partially broken because you have Chizuru actively communicate with Kazuya about something she loves about him. She still isn’t talking about the “Investigation” or their relationship but there was an actual effort that can’t be written away or dismissed as Chizuru just being kind, considerate or doing things out of obligation.


CodreanuBall

I agree with your overall analysis. This was the start of the domestic chemistry that the couple needs. Though I’d like to add it’s sad that the bar is set so low from previous arcs that the bare minimum of communication from Chizuru constitutes a great chapter.


jkassgaming

Kazuya needs to smoke some fucking weed and chill the fuck out


barabba_revival

(And touch some grass too in the process)


LewisSmith8

the first thing that came to mind was the reverse Nisemonogatari toothbrush scene, with Chizuru being the dominating one over Kazuya getting orgasm over brushing his teeth. it did not disappoint /s Meanwhile, our Queen had arrived. Hail to the Queen.


s_3n1x

This chapter described in one word only: SUMI! :D


BeansandBoots

Aaaand we're back to moving at a snails pace. We got the bath chapter, the teeth brushing chapter, what's next? The toilet chapter where Kazuya melts down over sitting on the same toilet where Mizuhara pooped? Is he gonna get hard after he smells it once she leaves the bathroom? Find out next week!

throwmeaway_woosh

I mean I can understand the frustration but I think it’s fair to say that it’s really tough for someone who has never even dated to respond to a confession of love.


BuckOHare

Loved it. Still need a couple of rereads to get exactly what Chizuru isn't saying. But that image of them together in the mirror is everything I wanted from fluffy arcs. In classic Kanokari style, they have once again missed out on the usual steps and just become an old married couple. I worry no translation is going to capture quite how ambiguous her I love yous are. I feel like she respects him for trying to respectful to her feelings, but she hates the distance, the fact he isn't at home here yet, wants to tell him how much she loves him. They both focus on the lips, showing it's not just Kazuya thinking about kissing. She can't even quite look at him afterwards, and the discussion of a party makes me think we might have a parallel to Kazuya's party that was about Chizuru, with a Chizuru party that's all about welcoming Kazuya.


Dependent_Web729

I noticed she confessed to him while brushing her teeth


BuckOHare

It's very domestic and ordinary.


Dependent_Web729

whether it was common or not for me it was just her way of saying she loves him


BuckOHare

I think it's more meaningful from her like that. It's not a big thing like Kazuya's confession at the pool, just small and making him feel part of her life.


GoBigRed07

Any idea where to read the original Japanese text? I’d like to see exactly what they translated there.

Overall-Initial-4290

Please tell me we're finally going to see Sumi,chizuru and kazuya finally together. Cuteness to the max! Also nice boob shot.


Varicus

If Sumi and Kazuya are planing a suprise party for Chizuru on her birthday, that can only be good. Kazuya might not be able to buy anything, since he is broke, but he can help with party preparations. Don't take any weird suggestions from Mini though, she surely has ulterior motives. But Sumi is a guardian angel. When she is involved, the birthday can only become a success.


Overall-Initial-4290

Oh I didnt even think about a surprise birthday. Yeah, hopefully he can make some money again. But a surprise birthday would be great. OH and Mini can work with Sumi and maybe those two can get Kazuya back in the game. Plus then we can complete the circle with Mini and Sumi going on a date and they can play match maker.


fancydirtgirlfriend

Oh no don’t tempt me to ship Mini and Sumi


ValdembergNobre

ALERT ALERT ALERT WE HAVE SUMI BACK. REPEAT, WE HAVE SUMI BACK! THIS IS NOT A TRIAL, EVERY SUMI FAN PLEASE REMAIN CALM.


Dr_Quarkenstein

Can anyone expand on the original word choice, in Japanese, of Chizuru's "I love that" and does she use the same word in her follow up?


RemyGee

I like how what she loves about his actions, being considerate to not integrate into her home too quickly, was actually something he did intentionally. Now, he accomplished it by not bidding at all but he still did it lol.


Varicus

First impressions: Kazuya probably needs a few more moments like yesterday evening to be able to really see Chizuru as a person and not (only) as his object of admiration. He is still not over [his experience in the bath](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/4/). And now he is once again [freaking out over seeing Mizuhara](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/9/). [Chizuru invites him to share the sink](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/11/) and the toothpaste. He briefly questions [why Chizuru would zip up](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/12/). She probably noticed Kazuya was not able to listen to her when [he saw her yesterday morning](https://mangadex.org/chapter/bb9ace3b-e72b-4256-8876-01171aa205b2/7) and wanted to prevent a similar situation. For Kazuya, also this quite mundane situation is like a dream, going into married couple territory. I don't quite know what he is referencing when he says [there was something similar once](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/14/). They have shared rooms a number of times. But the closest proximity over an extended period of time might have been [the bus drive home](https://mangadex.org/chapter/c8ec265d-e587-490c-b948-d2808c8d33e8/13) from filming the last scene of the movie, and that [made Kazuyas heart almost explode](https://mangadex.org/chapter/c8ec265d-e587-490c-b948-d2808c8d33e8/15). The [crying at the cheer-up date](https://mangadex.org/chapter/771301d2-2337-40a4-9eae-9212ceb363b8/19) was something special, I don't think he would associate the current situation with that. Chizuru tells Kazuya that she already assumed he was being considerate when he did not want to borrow "her" washroom all the time. And then she almost gives him a heart attack again, when she tells him that [she loves that](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/17/). He again thinks [she said something like that before](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/19/). I had to think of the scene from the ferris wheel during the dream date, where [Chizuru said that she loved her job](https://mangadex.org/chapter/e585f558-8eda-4080-85af-192cbf151b60/9). That also took him by suprise, even though he knew she was talking about her job. And then there is [a suprise Sumi with her adorable dog](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/21/)! She is preparing for Chizuru's birthday.


fancydirtgirlfriend

The “something similar once” is referring to [Chizuru saying “morning” to him](https://mangadex.org/chapter/533160a9-1f4d-4c1b-b7f0-7f69065cbca0/5).


Varicus

You are probably right. I was also thinking he must have thought about some scene on the balcony because of "[the partition between us](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/14/)". Do you have a better guess for what he is refering to when he said "[I feel like she said something like this before, too, and it took me by suprise back then as well...!](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/19/)"?


Seinen_Shounen

I think its [this](https://mangadex.org/chapter/4416571f-c42b-449d-9658-0696c93cb7f4/20) one


Varicus

That is most definitely the one. It even has Chizuru brushing her teeth!


Gilas84

>And now he is once again freaking out over seeing Mizuhara . > >Chizuru invites him to share the sink and the toothpaste. What I find funny is that he blushes at the idea of sharing the toothpaste, but the day before when Chizuru offers him a drink I feel like they exchange an indirect kiss\* and he doesn't react at that moment (nor this reddit for that matter \^\^) \*I explain if you look at Chizuru's hands she has a cup in her right hand at the level of her lips (she drinks or she cools the hot water by blowing on it), she grabs a cup with her left hand and gives Kazuya the cup she has in her right hand... more than a simple attention?! And so after an indirect kiss, an indirect declaration? "I love that" (sorry I still don't know how to put nice links like you)


Varicus

>What I find funny is that he blushes at the idea of sharing the toothpaste, but the day before when Chizuru offers him a drink I feel like they exchange an indirect kiss I was thinking the same at first, with the same reasoning as you. But Chizuru did only have [one cup in the beginning](https://mangadex.org/chapter/ada86175-3ece-45ec-9db4-9a5540afd61a/18). And if you look [here](https://mangadex.org/chapter/ada86175-3ece-45ec-9db4-9a5540afd61a/20), she has a cup in her left hand while she hands another one to Kazuya. Since she is right handed, it is pretty safe to assume she switched her own cup [to her left hand](https://mangadex.org/chapter/ada86175-3ece-45ec-9db4-9a5540afd61a/19) to reach for the second cup. I am pretty sure she deliberately used that indirect love declaration there. She wants to be in love with him, so if she does not yet feel that she loves him, she can at least tell him what she loves about him. PS: You get nice links in the Markdown editor with \[text\](link).


FKDragon696

At this rate, this arc is gonna broke the record for the slowest paced arc currently owned by the paradise arc.

again a 15 minute activity stretched to 20 pages. he is too self conscious of whatever he does. it is umbearable to read this. thank god we got sumi back to break this stupid situation. and like i have said every time reiji puts a promo out. Chizuru and Sumi always looks like more than friend.

Does Chizuru not find it weird that Kazuya is still calling her Mizuhara? It's Ichinose!

Additional-Age-6478

Damn chizuru zipping up her jacket when kazuya enters the room, is she embarrassed? Or uncomfortable? Or noticed kazuya staring


Toazel

Can't believe this is just a whole chapter about him being too nervous to brush his teeth.


Nixplosion

OMFG EVERYONE STOP TALKING, SUMI IS BACK!!! I don't care about anything else that happened this chapter: Chizuru saying she loves people who are considerate like Kaz. Sharing space to brush teeth. SUMI HAS MADE AN APPEARANCE AND IM SO HAPPY!!


SIGAAMDAD

Y’know, perhaps this entire thing of Kazuya overthinking everything could have simply been avoided by Chizuru simply wording the “investigation” a bit differently, maybe like “hey, imma try and get to know you better and see where that leads me!”


draugluin1

It's all lovely and everything but what bothers me is why the hell Chizuru zip it? Did she get uncomfortable of Kazuya's stares or something else? It's really annoying. Everything was perfect but that action there was like omg he is a perv always looking at my breast kinda shit. I'm sure it's not like that but really annoying.


DarkChaos1786

She was embarrased, she noticed her mistake and blurp out a semi confession to make him feel welcome, It's a very cute interaction.


draugluin1

Well, we passed that embarrassing situation. Didn't she try to kiss him in the street when he was literally unconscious? Now she was embarrassed because her front zip was open. Living in the same house be comfortable with him and that will make Kazuya comfortable too. When you do this he will be on edge not to look there or be weird around you. And you are right. When we look at the whole situation she understands she made a mistake she tried to save the situation by making a sloppy confession. Well done


awh

> Didn’t she try to kiss him in the street when he was literally unconscious? That’s a good point; he spent half this chapter worrying about his breath when just a few days ago she was willing to kiss him after he’d had a dozen beers and I don’t know how many seafood appetizers.


draugluin1

That's what I'm saying man. Thank you. And that's prove my sloppy confession thingy. Not even a confession just mere words uttered to save the situation. Because she fucked up in the zip up thing. She just had to zip it up. So cocky

She did that to control herself. She is horny as fuck, for real she tried to kiss him some chaps ago and later got mad at herself for not controlling her desire. That zip up was her last resort before jumping over the man


Varicus

[She did not zip up yesterday](https://mangadex.org/chapter/bb9ace3b-e72b-4256-8876-01171aa205b2/7), so she was most likely not uncomfortable with Kazyua staring. But she probably noticed that **he** was uncomfortable with it and decided to not "tempt" him this time. After all, she wants to be able to talk to him and have him listen.


draugluin1

Probably what you say is true. She may be more aware of the situation. But doing it so suddenly made Kazuya uncomfortable too. At least that's what I get from the drawings. Maybe I exaggerate too much. I've encountered some of this situations and believe me it makes other person way to more uncomfortable than being in the open.


Varicus

[He was closing his eyes](https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/rVzpyAY/1/11/) when he entered the room, so he would not stare at her. Zipping up so he can open his eyes again is nice of her. On the other hand, she **also** has her eyes closed for most of the time.


draugluin1

Yes please Kazıya open your eyes man. She acts irretating these last chapters. And yeah why did she closed her eyes? Try to control her desperate urges to kiss Kazuya maybe?

OH GOD, SUMI IS STILL NOT FORGOTTEN


FlummoxedOne

SUUUUMMMMMIIIIII!!!!!!!!


Yanesan

Looks like a set up for a scenario: Miami and a Ruka show up and start making threats; Sumi shows up, snaps and finally finds her voice, punches Mami, tells Ruka to STFU, then slaps Chizuru and tells her to quit messing around and just jump Kaz’s bones already or she will.


LudathaProf

The best part of this chapter is knowing that Sumi is coming back. IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME REIJI! Seriously these two chapters have literally been nothing with a side of a whole lot of simping. Maybe these chapters would've worked earlier when they were getting to know each other, but now it's too late. It's just artificially padding out the story. If this is what Reiji has planned, he might as well just write the ending of this thing and save us all and himself the time. See you next week.


TheAwesomeTruth

The Sumi enjoyers finally getting some crumbs

andres57

I feel like there's too much of a cultural gap to understand this chapter. Why he freaks out so much of using the washroom and cleaning his teeth?


Akashix09

Sumi return hype is just like Thanos appear in Avengers. Lets go


Tricky-Quote-1978

Finally!! A sumi in action!!!


Equadorian_

Kazuya wanted that spit

DABABY LET'S GO SUMI-CHAN IS BACK FROM THE DEAD


netpapa

What did Kazuya mean by he kissed those lips? They were using separate toothbrushes


estebandelasexface7

This chapter Kaz says, "I feel like she said something like this before too, and it took me by suprise back then as well" Do you guys know what he is talking about?


Pancho_2021

Waldlost

rpstforhire

al3xtremo

Even my heart skipped a beat when she said she loved that. She confessing right there? Made the whole chapter worthwhile for me.


AIM_GOAT

nrtoxop

was an ok chapter for me and for sure better than the last two


rspbarrios

Return of the Queen


Vanquishez

So the entire chapter is just Kazucuck freaking out over brushing his teeth and Chizuru barely showing any emotions, even zipping up her hoodie when Kazucuck walks in because deep down she knows that he's a creep. I can't wait to see the analysis post explaining why this is a good and deep chapter.


pyu2c

2 words: sakurasawa sumi....


ValdembergNobre

Those words are always enough to consider a chapter good.


Valuable-Ad-5586

well he did score some points. points are points. Progress is progress, no matter how small.


niphanif09

so wrong, chiz always let things loose towards Kazuya since episode 1, chapter 1. it's just a repititive


niphanif09

haha as usual they going deep analysis of why this chapter is so meaningful lol


niphanif09

robot Chizuru, boring Chizuru..


Vanquishez

You know the Choziro simps are gonna cream their pants when they see a full page spread of her showing a forced smile to Kazucuck


Cammerv8

bro it has been 2 year of a relation and she know kaz get freaky with any show of flesh. of couorse she gonna cover herself.. mami was not wrong when she said that
