Princess Jellyfish 47

Team Inari got their third X when they guessed “A Bath”.

This is one of those events you don’t expect, but always silently hope for.

I was questioning the sort of bad publicity he was creating for his family in the last few chapters, but somehow it never occurred to me how these events were affecting the other otaku until now.
