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: With neither Haruna's parents nor Mitsuo's dad at home and no time to try and find other adults to help, the children realize they are the only ones who can help Haruna.

Chapter 22: Birth

I've been waiting for this for so long. Thank you so much!

Some of the panels in this chapter looks like it came straight from a horror manga though.

And finally there he is: Haruna's son. I agree about the panels, but still it is amazing that everything worked out nice… And how much Mitsuo knew about the whole process, even to check how to check cervix dilatation :)
I can't understand why he asked Pigman to put the vinyl under Haruna (in the movie, this occurs too). And it might be me just having strange toughts but what did Mika got in her face (like in the movie): pee or amniotic fluid as she seemed a bit disgusted by it.
The scene was more graphic and detailed than in the movie, more realistic too, in the movie it all was a bit nervous and in a hurry although Haruna (what's in a name) Amari acted very well and realistic for an eleven-year old, she seemed in real agony at some point.
I'm curiuous to see what is going to happen next, when adults find out about the birth.

Great job you did and thanks again for scanlating this

Yeah, as we saw in an earlier chapter, Mitsuo was reading up on pregnancy and stuff, and I assume he continued to do so, which is a good thing since there was no one else to help!

I think he wanted the vinyl sheet because he knew there would be a mess and it would be easier to clean up that way.

It was probably pee on her face…at least that's what I thought. Mitsuo did tell Haruna not to hold back if she had to pee, so… >_<
