No reviews? Geez. Y'all are missing out on the good stuff again.I love how casual the mangaka keeps most of the things. Love confession? Pff, easy. First kiss? No big deal. First time sleeping together? Nothing.I mean, the characters do get nervous still and blush a lot, and it's also not completely meaningless, but definitely toned down very much, compared to almost every other romance story. It just shows how comfortable the characters are together and that's what you want to have in a romantic/sexual relationship, no?I also love how supportive everyone is. Not just with their relationship, but also with the dreams that each character has. It's extremely common in such stories for characters to always be jealous and envious, but not here. (Of course some background characters have problems with the MCs, but all the important characters don't.) It's so healthy and refreshing.Also, it's incredible, how every page, every panel is in color! Mangas are already difficult enough to draw and take so much time in b&w already, but even more so colored... gets me every time. 10 stars for the art.I'm not much a fan of the secret they're both keeping, as I always prefer honest relationships. However, the secret wasn't harming them in volume 1, so I was fine it first. But that kept crumbling down in volume 2, as expected.Oftentimes the plot kept being repeated a lot, which was too much for me sometimes. Felt like the mangaka needed to fill pages desperately or forgot that she already wrote that in the previous page/chapter. E.g. Nao keeps saying how much it's her dream to act with Haruka together and Haruka keeps mentioning how she'll never act again. It's pretty annoying, but at the same time I also get it. Kind of? Sometimes we also repeat things too many times in our heads, either because we hate our decision, or we love it, or we're disappointed...All I really wanted to do, was just to go into the book and make them talk to each other. I completely understand why both sides weren't ready to spill their tea, I've been kinda in both situations myself and know how hard it is. But I also know how bad it ends when you choose not to talk and keep it inside, until time reaches you and the truth somehow comes to light, or you grow apart because the lies built a distance between you...So, just talk.It just the drama part (dramatic, not the theatre stuff) that I didn't like much, but overall it was good. I did relate to a lot of things, especially from Haruka's side.I also liked the epilogue.And the full-color is so amazing. Some really nice panels in there.
