I decided that in order to keep track of what I've read, I'm going to write short summaries of what happened in Ginharu. I figured I might as well post them here, someone might find them interesting, and others might flame me for reading SoL garbage. Since I'm a Japanese noob, the reading will be very slow and probably very inaccurate, but it's better than waiting for the TL (ETA 50,000 years). I've read a little bit before today, so here's all that basically happened:
Protag's step-mom takes an amazing photo of Yukito and his step-sister Yuzuki
The cropping really brings out his eyes
They then walk to school together, but rather than not be late Yukito drops his sister off and goes to visit his actual mom at his grandma's coffee shop
Is she, like, 12?
Then upon being sent to some classroom or another for being late we meet the Canadian transfer student Bethly
She's wearing a scarf because she's sitting in an empty classroom near the window with the heating off
They can barely understand each other, but eventually Yukito turns the heating on and gets her a chemical heating pad from the infirmary, and he has to explain how it works... to someone from Canada...
Upon reaching their actual classroom and giving introductions we meet the person we're sitting next to, Momiji
We have a few awkward conversations with Bethly
It doesn't seem like she really wanted to be here, poor girl
School is over and we go to meet our senpai ice-skating nearly-champion who just came back, Mizuha
We also get a flashback what was probably a childhood marriage promise between the two
Last but not least, we meet the super-genki Aoi, Yuzuki's classmate who already became her friend
The three of them then go visit Yukito's mom again, and Aoi basically tells her that she was right to get a divorce to follow her dream of becoming a super violinist
Eventually everyone just ends up hugging Yuzuki
And that's basically everything that's happened so far, to the best of my (poor) knowledge, time to go read more!
