Another chapter I really liked. The picture of smiling Eri on page 7 made my day, and I look forward to more Eri VS Tenma.
Tenma surprised me a bit in this chapter, since I didn’t expect her to react so strongly to Eri’s cold shoulder, but I’m confident they’ll work things out. Eri was in a similar situation with Suou at the beginning of the series, and things turned out fine between them.
I sure hope this conflict doesn’t get resolved by an outsider. Eri is the one being set up as the flawed character here, and I want Kobayashi to develop her character further by having Eri resolve the dilemma. Getting someone else to resolve their issue is copping out, or “hitting the reset button” as I hear people often denounce Kobayashi for doing.
