There has been so, so, soooo much going on in 19 Days that’s it becoming difficult to keep up! For those of you who are new, 19 Days is a web comic manhua created by the very talented Old Xian. It centres around a group of four boys and their time together. So far there has been bromance, slightly forced romance, sexual assault allegations, a kidnapping as well as many other insane plot twists! In our last chapter we saw the boys playing basketball and just bumming around, Zhang offers to stay with Jian Yi since his mother is out of town, which of course Jian Yi is more than happy to agree to. So what has happened in the next chapter, Day 206? Let’s find out!
We have officially left the basketball court and we are now in Jian Yi’s place and Zhang is right behind him. Whilst Jian Yi is in high spirits (the love of his life is staying at his house for a sleepover) Zhang is troubled. The whole kidnapping has left the boy worrying and wants to discuss the whole thing with Jian Yi, who isn’t taking it as seriously…
Enough with the violence! Zhang is such a tortured and confusing soul. He wants to protect Jian Yi and next minute he attempts to batter him! I’m starting to feel so sorry for Jian Yi. Everyone around him treats him quite badly, even his best friend. I cannot see how the relationship within the manhua is going to progress since it’s becoming the same plot scenario every time; Zhang is worried about Jian Yi, beats him, protects him, and nothing more. No ‘I love you’s, no sudden realization that Jian Yi is the love of his life, just the same plot scenario.
In the last two posts I mention that She Li will be in the next chapter and I’m not going to say it the third time as I don’t want to look like an idiot (or get my hopes up). I really hope we get a chapter all on She Li, it’ll be interesting to see another character and it’ll be refreshing.
