And with this chapter I can finally add in the portion of the Author’s Note in Story 2 of Off Air that is a spoiler. Ichiho-sensei is merciless. 😣😣😣

I finished writing up the detailed summaries for Ichiho-sensei’s Kiss series here if people are interested in reading it.


In Ichiho Michi’s 10th anniversary fan book, there is a page that evaluates a number of semes from her novels and asks if they measure up as a “dream” man. Here is Ushio’s section.

Poor Ushio, docked points because he doesn’t wear suits enough! 😂😂😂

Yes, No, or Maybe Half? – Vol. 3 Ch. 28 Update

Kei hosts an awards ceremony for commercial TV broadcasters. It’s boring and no one’s paying attention to him, but somehow a surprise guest to the ceremony can command the entire room with his speech, and it frustrates and bothers Kei…

Also amazing news!!!! A new story for the Yes/No series was just announced!!! It will serialize in the Winter 2020 issue of Shousetsu Dear Plus, on sale December 20. Takemiya-sensei is returning with illustrations. I am so happy! First Off Air 2 news, and now a new story! I will absolutely be purchasing the magazine! It makes no mention about a spinoff, so my best guess is that it’s about Kei and Ushio, but the wording has enough wiggle room to allow for other possibilities, so it’s not 100% certainty that it will be them.

Yes, No, or Maybe Half? – Vol. 3 Ch. 26 Update

Kei is ambushed outside of his apartment building by a newspaper reporter. This seems to be a start of a story that puts Kei himself in the news?

Asou and Shitara get some screen time in this chapter and here’s a non-spoilerish tidbit from one of the spinoff doujinshi.

Volume 3: Where Home Is

How did you enjoy the side stories for Volume 2 from Off Air? Volume 3 is titled “Where Home Is” and it is the final volume for the “Yes, No, or Maybe Half?” main series. I hope you enjoy the ride. If you like this series so far, please consider recommending it or leaving a rating or review for it on Novel Updates! There aren’t very many people reading it, and it would be great if more people discovered how funny, warm, and triumphant this series is. If you already have, then thank you!
