Ah, it’s not really been long, but Shinshi Doumei Cross finally ended. I nearly fainted when the opening page of the chapter had Haine declaring “I will marry both Shizumasa and Takanari!” ^^;;. I think that’s gonna be really hard on both of them, Haine-chan.
In the end, Takanari gets Haine, and everything gets nicely resolved \o/. I’m happy for both of them, and it’s been really fun reading this manga throughout its run.
While I felt the ending arc was a bit rushed, and you could already see things coming a mile ahead, I’m glad to see the conclusion was nicely done, and everyone in the series gets a fair share of happiness. I especially felt happy for Ushio, and it was good to see Kusame and Komaki getting along, though I wished to see more of Kusame. Yes, it’s because both of them have long, beautiful hair :D.
Ah, I’ll end it here before I spoil the whole chapter. Looking forward to Arina-sensei’s next work after this.
