Are Yamato and Suzuka Freshmen at the beginning
Like the topic says, Are Yamato and Suzuka Freshmen at the beginning of the series?
I thought that they were, but then I realized that Suzuka states that when Kazuki died, she was in her 2'nd year of Jr. High (which appeared to be at the end of the year). Then when we see her at Kazuki's grave for the first time in Volume 3, it's stated that it was 2 years ago that he died. Yet if they were Freshmen that would mean only a little bit over a year had passed.
Maybe Jr. High runs longer in Japan than here. Near me it's Grades 6-8, which if Jr. High is a year longer in Japan, then that's make sense of everything.
Thanks in advanace.
