This comic is actually very significant from a behind the scenes perspective in that it's the first comic I can recall receiving feedback about! A reader and their friend were not happy about Nanase breaking up with Elliot and supposedly vocalized "no!" in a... computer lab? Library? They were somewhere public where it may or may not have actually been "comic reading" time.
In any case, they wanted Nanase and Elliot to stay together. I have no idea if they still read the comic or what they think of developments since then, but I know their interest in my characters had an impact on me.
Also, I guess Grace is in this comic. For reasons. Wow, I did NOT adapt right away to having all this extra panel real estate, did I? Oh well. Grace is cute. Your argument is invalid.
