updated their review of Neko no Otera no Chion-san
Score 8/10

UPDATE:  Now read up to 53 chapters (11/30/2020). This mangaka is masterful at slow, steady build ups. It's just a little slower than some people might like. But you can tell with each passing chapter that the characters are just becoming  ever so slightly  less subtle about...

Same mangaka, same art style, same penchant for cute moments and subtle cues at romance. The only thing I'll say is that while Chion-san is a bit slower-paced and easygoing, Insomnia moves along at just the right speed to make sure you don't want to stop reading. Chion & Gen are much more reserved. Nakami and Isaki on the other hand are much more forward, blunt, and honest about their feelings. Also common between them - detailed motorbikes and cats.
