Senpai-caramba!

Nervous-toro (a.k.a. "Don't Complain about the Schadenfreude, Nagatoro!") - Chapters 21 through 30


DISCLAIMER:

This blog post has mild spoilers for chapters 11 through 20 of Don't Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro!


One of the reasons that I enjoy comedy manga and comedy anime is because of the wild facial expressions. Having grown up with Tex Avery cartoons, Looney Tunes, and similar western fare, I grew accustomed to crazy facial expressions.

It's the second most powerful reason why I binge-read Spy x Family. (The first, of course, is Yor Forger, who brings essential plot.)

However, this is not a blog post about an assassin. This is a blog post about an arrogant young lass getting some much-needed doses of karma.

So let's look at Nagatoro's faces as she faces the music in chapters 21 through 30!

For about 104 chapters now, Nagatoro has been teasing and tormenting the crap out of Senpai. The biggest appeal of this manga for me is when her bullying attempts backfire.

It's taken a long time, but SPOILER ALERT: Senpai's beginning to notice what flusters her. (Now if only Nagatoro's weaknesses didn't fluster him as well.)

But one of the greatest backfires happens in the aptly-numbered chapter 34...

...which readers will see for themselves in the next post in this series.
