Apparently there was a survey question for adults that asked, “Have you ever crossed a line? What does that line indicate?” Ichiho-sensei decided to ask a follow-up question to her characters. 😂
Q: What do you think “crossing a line” is for you?
Nawada-kun: “A-A kiss, maybe…?” Minagawa-kun: “Wha? It’s gotta be a threesome. Oh, but I haven’t personally crossed it, not yet.” Nawada-kun: “Not yet…?”
Tsuzuki-kun: “Holding hands.” Kunieda-kun: “Liar!!!!” Tsuzuki-kun: “Then let’s hear your opinion.” Kunieda-kun: “………….Taking turns drinking from the same bottle or can?” Tsuzuki-kun: “There’s like no difference.”
Tatsuki, are you trying to get yourself in the doghouse? 🤣🤣🤣 This is not the only time he slips up like this, hahahaha. 🤦
Happy Lunar New Year! This is the second extra for Volume 1 of Side Profiles and Irises! This concludes Volume 1. How did you enjoy Tatsuki and Shin’s story? There’s more to come with Volume 2: Love Rivals and Irises!
Happy New Year~! OFF AIR 2 has more New Year’s stories about Kei and Ushio (post Volume 3!), but alas, I’m working my way through Side Profiles right now. We will get to it eventually~ But I will release the next story from OFF AIR 2 soon, after I edit and proofread~
Shousetsu Dear+ announced the new Yes/No story is a continuation of Fusaide (Vol 3 of the spinoff) called Hiraite. It features all the Asahi TV guys (Shitara, Sakae, Kei, Tatsuki, Shin, and Asou), and no spoilers, picks up the story directly from the ending of Fusaide.
I’m half disappointed and half relieved that the story isn’t about Kei and Ushio. Half disappointed because Kei and Ushio are my favorite and I always want to read more of them, but relieved because the way she concluded Where Home Is is perfect, and I don’t know how Ichiho-sensei can outdo herself without sacrificing what I love about them. I’m content with reading side stories about them where the stakes are lower, and she doesn’t have to ratchet up the dramatics to outdo Volume 3. Anyway, she is always writing doujinshi about Kei and Ushio, so I can always get my fix that way.
But I am excited for the new story! *prepares the tissues*
I’m toying with the idea of changing the title choice for Fusaide from Cover My Eyes (fill me in) to Block it Out. There is a big reason why I initially felt Cover My Eyes was a good choice, but hmmm, I will read Hiraite first before deciding how I might want to adjust the titles. Hiraite means Open Up or like Spread it Open.
