Reader’s Corner: Lovesick Ellie, The Way of the Househusband, and the Final Volume of Love Me Love Me Not

Maison Ikkoku Collector’s Edition, Vol. 6 When a writer or mangaka adds new major characters to a long-running manga or show, it’s often smacks of desperation, an attempt to keep the series going despite a dearth of creativity.
