It highlights some authenticity to their relationship as well as some of the challenges gay and bi people face, worrying that people they meet are only exploring. In another part of the flashback, Miyako assumes that Hakozaki was only drunk and wasn't really interested in women and avoids her. But with Yuu confessing to Touko in volume 6, there was a lot of hands thrown up, essentially saying: "Well there you go, she wasn't aromantic/asexual, she just hadn't finished developing her sexual awakening" or "it just took the right person" or "I knew it was too good to be true that we'd get aromantic/asexual representation. But Yuu is so out of her element, having new feelings, trying to express them, only to be turned down, that she can't even see past her own nose.

I think that what made this volume for me was the fact that our characters have taken almost a break from one another.Remember, in the sex-segregated religious schools, girls only have the option to be either madonna or whore and whore is acceptable only within marriage as “mother”.

But when the next person to confess to Yuu is the alluring Nanami herself, has Yuu's shoujo romance finally begun? For anyone that's looking for a good romance comic that defies expectations and is relatively chaste, Bloom Into You is a good choice.

Yuu has always loved shoujo manga and fantasizes about the day that, she, too, will get a love confession that will send her heart a-flutter. Miyako takes Sayaka on a reconnaissance mission and for the first time, Sayaka gets to talk to someone like her, and see what life can become. Usually love triangles like this make me pretty frustrated, because I don't like to see girls suffering from rejection. You can feel how badly this hurts (for both parties) and how a really bad miscommunication spirals out of control (I often get annoyed by ‘if we talked this would clear the air’ but this one is plausible and sold well, especially since Yuu doesn’t know there’s anything left to actually say). It’s the perfect note of hope going into the finale of one of not only the best yuri series, but best manga in general.

She tries to say that love isn’t for her, but he says she’s not actually like him and she’s just running away because she doesn’t want to face the rejection. I personally do not think this would have happened if they did not take this time away from one another. LGBTQ+ representation (0-5): 2 - I'm going to give this some extra loving because of the flashback with Hakozaki-sensei and Miyako that really feels like adult lesbians that exist in the real world and not just fantasy yuri decontextualized from society. But the author wrote the scene very well, I believe that this was one of the best scenes of rejection in a yuri manga that I have read. It's a huge change for her, and ultimately it will be for the better (no, I am not speaking from personal experience here!Sayaka just laughs at how cute they are together (in the middle of Hakozaki-sensei berating Miyako) and Hakozaki-sensei gets all flustered. Nice melodramatic teenage angst, like: the very first person I said "I love you" to didn't love me back so now there is no chance of me ever having love in my life, you know, EVER, even over the next 60+ years. That whole section is also amazing and even as somebody who is only slightly a Sayaka fan (my main issue being she had her chance forever and never took it, which she manages to acknowledge), it plays out so well.
