Every time I remember the last chapter and the crap that happened in it my blood boils ugh
I always think it's pretty cheap tho when mangakas get swayed by popular opinions or fans' pressure. Like, this is your own manga and own story, not the fans' or the editors', man up and write what you want!
Chunchun spent the entirety of the manga loving Shishio and fantasizing about him all the time, but for some mysterious reason she switched her feelings in the last chapter >_> lol Chunchun's uncle who was the reason why they broke up in the first place didn't get reprimanded for what happened, Chunchun didn't even care to ask Shishio why he broke up with her back then... it's 100% obvious the mangaka did what the majority of the fans told her to do.
Mazume shippers flooded her twitter back then, calling her names and demeaning her while bashing Shishio (even tho it was his birthday) because Chunchun left Mamura and went to see Shishio in the hospital. It was nasty and rude.
Damn sis, you reminded me of all the rage I felt back then lmao.
Honestly this manga is such a wasted potential, Yamamori Mika's writing ruined her manga on so many ways it pisses me off that i ever wasted my time reading it.
First of, Mamura's lack of development, we know he has misogynistic traits but never find out until the very end of the manga, bc his mom left them for another dude. Shishio and Suzume got plenty of development, in fact, Shishio has more plot relevancy in the manga even after Shizume break up, lmao, this annoys me because if Yamamori really wanted a Mazume ending, it would have been better to develop them more, but she didn't.
Yukichi never told anything to Suzume about why Shishio let her go. Suzume had the right to know why, tbh. There's also Suzume never questioning this , it makes me think that Yamamori didn't let this happen because then Mazume wouldn't have a chance.
When Shishio tries to get her back, Suzume still confused never rly told Shishio to back off, which obviously adds more drama to this stupid love triangle.
AND THEN TO TOP IT OFF, Yamamori Mika humiliates Shishio even more by writing an extra chapter showing Shishio still unable to move on from Suzume after god knows how many years and he gets drunk after seeing her happy with Mamura, then brings this unknown female character to light implying they would eventually get together lmao.
To me it feels like she had something personal against Shishio's character lmao, i do remember someone mentioning she had written on twitter about how she found Shishio annoying.......now that's just.............ugh.........Then to that, add the bratty entitled Mazume fans, hypocrites cos they deem Shizume "toxic" and "problematic" because Shishio is Suzume's teacher when they started reading HNR because they were attracted to a student/teacher relationship, flooding her twitter with complaints and threats.
There's no doubt she sold out and regrets it, i mean look at her new manga, Tsubaki Chou lonely planet, both main characters are clones of Suzume/Shishio
SORRY FOR THE LONG RANT, but i hated the ending as much as you and i still can't believe how she sold out like that.
