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.)

    Strange reaction from some of the classmates, I thought they knew for months Haruna was pregnant.
    And Haruna herself doesn’t seem to realise that some day this baby has to come out and that giving birth isn’t a piece of cake and I can’t understand her reaction to the chicken’s slaughter and preparation. Can someone explain this to me please? Thanks in advance!

    PS Thanks for this other chapter, the end is near :D

      My reading was that while of course they knew, they weren’t really thinking about it in terms of “a month from now there will be an actual baby here”.

      I think the whole scene with the chicken was just foreshadowing of her grandmother’s death.

    I had a feeling her grandmother was going to die. D: I can only imagine how much harder it’s going to be for her family to deal with things in a few days.

      Yeah, it wasn’t looking good for grandma, even without the foreshadowing in this chapter. XD
