    I read the first chapter too. An interesting route for a high school shoujo manga where the storyline doesn't entirely focus on romance (yet), but on certain issues of the idol world, sexism, and PTSD. Now wonder it was praised.

    It's unsettling how it was a bit similar from the handshake incident, and I personally hope the author would find more originality through her work, and don't base Techi too much on her protagonist.

    The leading guy is a fresh trope instead of being the cool and silent popular guy from a typical shoujo manga. He looks like the second love interest who wouldn't get the girl in the end lol. He's a soft boi.

    If there would be a live action, we'll just have to wait if Techi would be offered for the role or will audition for it. I want to see Techi play on the romance genre, and this kind of plot from the manga suits her a lot.

    Just look at this awesome stunt, so empowering. (spoiler below)

    I agree on the interesting deep look on the issues, less on your take about the boy since manga are full of that boring cool but nice hero wannabe type.
    So I'm gonna just ship the girls that, like usual, are more interesting.

    Hopefully, if Techi is given the part, she'll also develop a nice relationship with her coworker like she had wirh Ayaka Wilson.
    It's always my favorite part, seeing Techi happy

    So good to see:

    And yes, Goodbye Miniskirt looks interesting. First chapter had some good possibilities. But it's almost too close to Techi's own situation for her to do. Maybe it could help her exorcise the incident? Or maybe not. The "soft boi" is also a hard athlete. His determination toward his activity may be like the heroine's own when she became an idol. Point of commonality. Love that little translated page stunt posted by @chiskeyk, lol.

    ALSO:
    I see a report that Techi was seen at Disney Sea on Wednesday with Akanen and Aoi-chan. Hono-chan may also have been seen there, and there is another report that six members went together, including Techi. Just based on Twitter reports, so no proof, but people are happy that at least one 2gen might have been included. I'm happy that three differing ages of 1gens seem to have been together, including Aoi.

    So I still haven't gotten over Pirate Techi at Keyaki Republic this year [hehe] I wonder how she felt when she was given her pirate leader costume, complete with the tricorn lol

    And speaking of ROK, I honestly can't imagine a Keyaki Republic without Techi when she graduates in the future. She's been such a pivotal figure of the show, acting as the unifying leader of the Republic, so it's hard to imagine another member taking over that role. They might as well just abolish it without Techi there, imo. <- Edit: by abolishing, I meant Techi's current role, not the entire concert here - don't misunderstand, I'm a huge ROK fan (-:

    Anyways, so thankful to Keyaki Republic for always delivering some of my favorite one-shots of Techi.

    Of course, ROK should still go on. I was talking about the ‘Republic Leader’ role, which is made most obvious during the overture. It’ll probably go to the next center of the group but idk there’s gonna be way too many comparisons and pressure, esp if it’s a 1st gen member. I’d rather just see that role go away or have Yuuka do it since she’s captain.

    Techi's graduation will create damage but the group will move on eventually. Republic is such an iconic event that I wish the future generations would carry it on and develop it even more.
    ------

    The Ambivalent performance is pre-recorded, maybe because Keyaki-chan have other schedule today? Nonetheless, the performance was so good. We finally have a full perf of Techi's Ambivalent after a long time and Techi did not disappoint. Good expressions, good movements and the cartwheel was absolutely perfect. However, she was still holding back a mini tiny bit because of her back I think. Techi held her back a bit more after the bent. I'm not sure if that was just a new habit (due to the injury) because she still did her cartwheel.

    If I do not mistranslate, Fujiyoshi Karin said in her IHS that Techi told everyone spraying Aki-P was so much fun. At backstage, this girl is really a brat lol

    SO true. Techi's cheeky side is reserved for those she is closed with so it's always funny when we get to see a glimpse of it. Sometimes I'm not sure if I should call her blunt, cheeky or brave lol. Maybe all.

    Really enjoy today' SOL, full of laughter from Tecchan. The part where she describes how scary the stylist is is just hilarious. Yet, it's really weird that SOL doesn't take Techi's half/full body pics like usual, are they hiding something? Her hair for 9th/2nd maybe [hehe]

    And have you guys read toomuchidea's translation? Techi jumped into the sea in her freaking expensive dress while no one noticed lol, and the staff even warned her beforehand too. I'd be angry too if someone does it but it's Techi we're talking about. Could I even stand if baby Techi looks at me innocently and says sorry, I wonder? :^O^:
