Hayase has gone to this school for years, so she knows that you do *not* touch anyone on Monday, and if you do, there's a little incantation that must be recited. But Mashiro has just transfered in, and does not know these things. Hayase explains that we do not touch on Monday, because not too long ago two girls did - and they fell in love, became lovers and tried to die together. Therefore, if you don't recite the charm, you might fall in love with whomever touched you...and that would be bad. Of course Hayase explains this after Mashiro has touched her...on a Monday.
Extra story: The Professor's Kitten and the Rainy Morning
A GL story set in a school where anti-gay sentiments are treated as the norm, where girls romantically loving each other is seen as indecent and taboo behavior worthy of chastisement and correction. I don't think the story was particularly clear in the way it presented its set-up--it took me a while to realize that Sumika was trying to get transferred out of the school. Wouldn't there have been better ways to go about trying to achieve that goal, other than acting like an asshole? The story arc is centered around a piece of folklore about a lover's suicide that is used to try to deter romantic relationships between the girls at the school. I don't find the folklore part of the story particularly interesting. Nor do I find the romance to be very well-handled in how their feelings (particularly Sumika's) developed and grew. The blushmarks are prominent and dark, sometimes placed closer to the temple than the cheek and also sometimes drawn on only a single side of the face instead of both sides. Sumika's eyes are pulled upward on the ends, but still retaining a rounded shape.
