The cover for Off Air Volume 2 was released the other day! How adorable are Kei and Ushio??? Especially Kei! 💕💕💕 This time Kei is the one brushing his teeth~ And he has bed hair! 😂
From the looks of the special bonus announcements, the volume includes Fools Rush In, about Kei, Ushio, and Tatsuki getting pass-out drunk at Ushio’s house, Rose-Colored Pop, about Ushio and Kei taking a couple of trips together, and Just Like Honey, about the days after Ushio and Kei first get together in Volume 1. October 29th can’t come fast enough!
Ichiho Michi will be having a meet and greet session for Off Air 2, and the publisher posted a textless version of the cover for the first volume! Hee, look at Kei with his tummy exposed! 😏 And Ushio is so handsome with his wink. 🥰
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.
P.S. Thank you everyone who commented, rated, reviewed, and/or recommended the series!
Asou and Shitara get some screen time in this chapter and here’s a non-spoilerish tidbit from one of the spinoff doujinshi.
Tidbit about Asou and Shitara
Remember how Shitara used to work at the Asahi TV HQ before he was shipped off to one of their affiliates? Well, Asou and Shitara are really thick as thieves, since they’ve known each from that time. They chat together like close buddies, like how Shitara’s love life is going, like how Asou firmly believes that Shitara will come back to HQ, and Asou is amazingly supportive about everything (well, supportive like a bro, lol). Even when Asou tells Shitara about his cancer, he’s still giving Shitara advice to go for the person he loves. Shitara never reveals any details about his love life, but Asou probably guesses who it is. Their little short story made me so happy to read and made me appreciate Asou a lot more!
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!
