Some halftone cards were printed on high gloss paper to resemble a photograph but their screen patterns will give them away if one is vigilant.
In printed images the grey areas are usually made up of black marks that are spaced to create the optical illusion of greys.
The main guy, who speaks with a Kansai dialect/accent, is called Kirishima Haruto.
The other girl that he was afraid to meet up with is called (神咲名海) Kanzaki Nanami, which is an unusual reading for the kanji of her name.
So we've had basketball....track....wonder what this one will be about? The premise: Girl leaves Tokyo and moves to a small town (somewhere near Hiroshima I think) to go to high school.
Basically the story will be about these 2 people living together (main guy doesn't really like the main girl at first), and there will be a triangle relationship with a Suzuka-look-alike (girl whom main guy likes).I don' t think this is a 'sequel' per se - the character personalities and art is similar of course but beyond that I don't think it has anything to do with Suzuka...I really like the Honoka-type character though..has much more personality and is more interesting (like Miki! I hope she comes out better than Honoka did in Suzuka.Though I wasn't active in the Suzuka manga thread, but I read all the manga and I loved it I have heard about this new manga from some japanese blogs that I read, and of course I'll be following this manga too I've never read Suzuka(i've seen all the anime though), but I hope its at least a bit better than Cross Over.Not that Cross Over is bad, just generic sports drama, so it's not that exciting to most(though I'm still following it I kinda just skimmed over the first chapter.Are you tired of the Western Europe bar & club scene, coming home to an empty house, lonely tables-for-one at those romantic Western Europe restaurants, disastrous blind dates set up by your matchmaking friends, Western Europe local singles groups, singles events and meetings with no results??Connecting Singles is a 100% FREE Western Europe dating site where you can make friends and meet Western Europe singles.So far only two chapters are out but both of them are decently written and easy to follow along with. Honestly this manga hasn't seen enough daylight to make a judgement I will stick with it personally.The bad: this may all seem a bit too familiar to you if you have read Suzuka while the characters don't share personalities they certainly share appearances. The plot may also seem a bit contrived, I suggest giving it a try it is only two chapters out so far. I like Seo's art and I like this sort of harem story. The good: If you liked Suzuka you will like the art of this book and you might even like the story.the premise is sort of the reverse of Suzuka and it isn't as hopeless as it may seem.
