Hopefully Viz announce they've licensed the series soon. It's pretty much at the top of my list in terms of things I want to see released over here.

I knew it wouldn't be much longer after I read the latest chapter. It could have ended sooner if the spoiler[Toma and Narumi ordeal] didn't drag on for agessss. Here's hoping it gets picked up in the states.

Why people blame Kou and Futaba for hurting Touma?
Isn't Touma jumped between Kou and Futaba?
Why Touma fans can't see Touma get what he asked for...
spoiler[Futaba wanted reject him, but he forced her into dating him,
he used her guilty feelings to still be with him and act like good girlfriend and play in "BF/GF" game with him.

If he don't forced her then he wouldn't be hurt.
If you want blame somebody for hurting Touma, then you should blame him.]


Really, I don't know some people are biased towards characters like Touma or they read some diffrent manga or ignore lot of things which aren't like they wanted to be.

From what I can see, I'll blame Touma for getting into a relationship that wouldn't work in the first place. However, from a standpoint, it's pretty much unrequited love at that point for him so I can't blame him for trying. Also, he did said that he was willing to wait for her to only look at him even though she only thinks about someone else. And by the time Kou has to be an ass and finally realized that he was wrong for letting go of Futaba, he has to go back and messed up their relationship by declaring that he'll take Futaba back away from Touma which is an ass move right there. I actually hated Touma at first, but then I saw how he was willing to wait for her to change her mind. Then Futaba showed signs that she was willing to move on and I went on and ship them instead.

I don't blame him for trying, because ok he fallen in love with her so he wanted to be with her,
but I dislike how he first
spoiler[said that he will wait when she will be ready, that he understand her feelings
and he just saw Kou with Fu and "I can't wait! Tell me now! So be my gf!"
When his friends said that he shouldn't make a move on her when she is heartbroken,
Touma said that he doesn't care if this means he have chance to make her his gf.
When first give her space, time to really move on and just start to meet him as friend and get know him,
before they started dating...
but he feels that Kou can go to Fu tell her about everything and Futaba soon will go back to Kou and leave him alone.
He acted like "I really care about your feelings." but in true Touma cares only his own happiness
and even when he feel it doesn't work, that Fu can't start to like him, he still don't wanted let her go to Kou,
because this means he will "lose" with Kou.
He don't wanted Futaba let go, even when he know that she doesn't like him.
I really don't like that even at the end he was all like "This was painfull, I know you like Kou not me, but I still want be with you".
Like c'mon... -.-

I feel sorry for Yui, she had some backstory with Kou, she was friend with Kou before she noticed that she likes him...
and even when she was hurt she let go Kou and she was better rival than Touma.

Touma was 'random guy who fallen in love with Fu, just to bring drama to story".
Even I don't really get why he fallen in love with her, because he noticed she is cute and after noticing her how she talk/look(?) at Kou
and thought he also want her to start like him.]

yeah, I understand man, I've already said that I hated Touma at first also for his actions. I was fully sailed on S.S. Kou until he screwed up his chance the 3rd time. And it's pretty much both sides to me, both guys don't care about how Futaba feels, they were just htinking about themselves and that's what wrong about this manga. I remember reading Moe Kare! which has the MC in the same situation, but one guy thinks about only his happiness while the other one always think about the MC's feelings so I supported the latter and I was happy that it ended that way. For this situation though, as I've mentioned before, to me, Kou blew his chance the third time he rejected and be an ass to Futaba so.......

I don't think he screwed...
He just have other things to do and "wasn't ready" to be with Futaba.

Also he don't rejected her, because he doesn't liked her,
looking at chapter about him and Narumi we know why he couldn't leave her alone and start to dating Fu.

I knew it! Since the latest chapter hinted it and I know that it should be be ended soon.

Now, time to wait for the second season for more Touma's cuteness.

The most recent chapter made it very clear that this story was coming to a close. I'm glad, in a way, since I felt that the author dragged the drama on a bit too long...

Out of nowhere? Not really. It was pretty clear to most readers.

I actually hated Touma at first, but then I saw how he was willing to wait for her to change her mind. Then Futaba showed signs that she was willing to move on and I went on and ship them instead.

(emphasis mine...)
The part I put in bold is the biggest reason I dislike Touma and feel he got what he deserved.
spoiler[When Kou initially rejected Futaba, because he knew that she would be unable to deal with him spending time with Narumi while he helped her get over her father's death, Touma commented that it would be very cruel to go after her while she was vulnerable, but he decided to do it anyway. Then he told her to take her time and think about him in 'that way', no rush. Then, when Kou tried to stop Futaba from leaving with him, using the excuse of needing to give her back her sewing kit, Touma saw the look in Kou's eyes and knew that Kou still loved Futaba and was on the verge of telling her so. He didn't know the details and that Kou was waiting until he had fully settled things with Narumi before he confessed to Futaba, but he knew that if he let Futaba wait to answer him for even as much as a day or two, Kou was likely to make his move. So what did he do then? Did he keep his word about letting her decide in her own time? No! He said he was 'at his limit' and she had to answer him now! Then, when it was clear she was about to say 'No', he interrupted her and, basically, refused to take no for an answer. He put words into her mouth and pushed her into dating him. He admitted that later and, even though she told him at the time that she still loved Kou, but wanted to move on, and he knew that Kou was planning to try to steal her away from him and still loved her, he continued to push to keep Futaba in a loveless relationship. If he really loved her, he would have taken the knowledge he had and told Futaba that the man she really loves still loves her and to go talk with Kou about it. Real love doesn't try to force the other person, but 'sets the other person free'. For an example of this, see Mamura in Hirunaka no Ryuusei.]

spoiler[What you are describing is precisely the reason why Kou rejected Futaba, and, ultimately, why he tried to get her back.

He rejected her because he was thinking about Futaba's and Narumi's feelings. He wanted to help Narumi. He knew that she needed him and was possibly in danger of doing something dangerous, like running away or committing suicide. He also knew that, if he told Futaba how he really felt about her and continued to support Narumi the way he was, she would feel threatened by Narumi and would be unhappy. He choose the lesser unhappiness, for Futaba, and greater unhappiness for himself. He then realized that he couldn't forget her and that, if her love for him was as strong as his for her, that he wasn't helping her at all, so the best thing to do was to get her out of her loveless relationship with Touma and tell her how he really feels.

Touma was always thinking only of himself and not how Futaba felt.]
