[Free Talk: According to this post in baidu, Kono Oto Tomare readers, there is no chapter for this month since the mangaka took an unexpected? break. The comments mention about the mangaka’s health so maybe she isn’t feeling well.]

Kasane Novel 'Rippled Thread' Spoilers

[Free Talk: This are spoilers from the novel that was posted on baidu. I’m not sure if it is complete but it has been a month since the last update so I’ve assume that it more or less finished <- no continuation. It isn’t in chronological order but I’ll translate it based on how it was written in baidu.]
After being driven away by Atae from the house, Izana felt guilty because she always sees Atae as Nagi. She always loves Nagi and Atae is Kasane’s father. When Nagi died, her heart also died. She wanted to fill the emptiness in her heart so she looked for Atae. But, she realized that this won’t do at all.

Free Talk: Namaikizakari [Chapter 81-82]


[To look at the pictures/Chinese scans for chapter 82, go here. OnH will come out after this either tomorrow or Saturday.]

So in Chapter 81, Shou and Fuuka know that Suwa confessed. Wow, so cheeky of Suwa. The look on their faces are quite priceless. And after some hesitation, evasion and awkwardness, Fuuka spill the beans to wishy-washy Yuki about the confession. For a while there, I thought the mangaka is going for the long friendship quarrel but Fuuka is really such a great friend/person.

Well, Kyouko is saved thanks to Erika and her team along with Yashiro who stopped the deed. Kimiko and manager are really good in twisting things. Thankfully, Erika and her team have recorded the scene as evidence and managed to use it to end Kimiko’s career/‘no longer work in showbiz’. Hm... is that limited to Japan?
