I feel EXACTLY the same about Narumi but I'm kinda happy that she got an chapter that dealt almost only with her love for kou and stuff. It would have been a little disappointing if she had just disappeared without this little background story and would have felt incompleted in my opinion.[...]but right now im happy shes out of the picture.
What is futaba going to tell Kou? give him the same treatment as he did to her in the beginning? wiill kou give up or be persistent like men usually are? :3
And about Kou: Well if he was to give up NOW than everything he said in this chapter and the chapter before would have been pointless and I would get sooooo upsed about it (not that it matters tho)
Oh and the thing with the movie and how Kikuchi should go with her or how she should choose another movie: I personally think that Futaba wants to watch THIS EXACT MOVIE. So she's searching for someone to go with her. And that she asked Kikuchi first is pretty girlfriend-ish of her. And well it wasn't really Kikuchis taste. Simple as that. It's not that he doesn't want to go to the cinema with her or that she doesn't want to go with him. They surely went to the movies together before. But Futaba would like to watch this film. Nice chance for Kou tho.
