Summary: In a small town in Tokyo, the PTA argues about teaching sex ed in elementary school, but what nobody knows is that eleven-year-old Haruna is already pregnant. When she decides not to tell any adults, it's up to her classmates to help her through this ordeal. (Note: This is not loli. Sex happens off-screen and the artwork is not fan-servicey.)

Chapter Summary: Now that Haruna's classmates know her secret, is it only a matter of time before everyone else finds out, too?

Um, small detail, but i think "the jig's up" would be the correct idiom
"the Gig's up" sounds like the end of a concert or party
while "the jig's up" would be appropriate for the revelation of a secret or conspiracy

Huh. I've always seen/heard both equally, but it looks like jig is the original version, so I guess I'll change it.

Now everyone is aware of Haruna's secret. But somehow the adults still refuse to believe it, all of them just assume Haruna is overwheight! And Haruna and friends doesn't seem to realise how serious it is and someday Haruna will go into labor and give birth. Except for Mika, but she is as usual more concerned about herself in the first place; e.g. What will her mother thing of HER when she finds out Haruna is pregnant.
Great job though, you scanlations I am eager to read the next chapters.

Yeah, I though it was interesting that not a single one of the parents took it seriously.

I'm hoping to have the next chapter up next week. :)
