This chapter continues shortly after the first oneshot. For me, this chapter raised questions about Iwato's relationship with her father. I'm now curious about that and I hope it's explored in following chapters. I guess the psychology is that women who were neglected by their fathers, may seek a father figure in a boyfriend.
Seta is interesting because "father" is the natural the role he assumes. I didn't really expect this since he's an erotic fiction writer. But it seems that he has a clear idea of what is and isn't appropriate and used the "father" role to impose a wall between himself and Iwato.. But by the end of this chapter, I started to suspect editor-san is trying to help Seta get over something. So what happened in Seta's past. Why does he only write instead of experiencing relationships directly without having to pay a woman for a service?
I've probably already said too much and I'm sorry to people who don't like that. Anyhow, on to the release!
