Spotted Flower Chapter 19 Manga Review (Childbirth.)

Spotted Flower Chapter 19 (Manga)
Spotted Flower manga chapter 19 review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Spotted Flower Chapter 19 NOTE: For the purposes of this and future reviews, until the characters are given names, since these characters are obviously from Genshiken (or Genshiken Nidaime), I will call the “not-Saki” character !Saki, the “not Madarame” character !Madarame, and so forth for all other unnamed Genshiken characters.

!Saki and !Madarame have been at the hospital for five hours. !Saki is still irritated by the birth of their first child interrupting her carefully laid plans for seducing her husband. She’s also mad with him for making her go through this for him. Eventually, the child starts coming out, amazing !Madarame.

After !Saki gives birth to their daughter, the infant is eventually wrapped up and placed with !Saki in the bed. !Madarame says nothing but look at them in flushed amazement. !Saki looks lovingly at her daughter. She then laughs, telling !Madarame that their daughter looks just like him, something he denies.


So, !Saki finally gives birth to…a thing. πŸ˜†

Spotted Flower Chapter 19

This chapter reminded me of an old Howie Mandel standup routine that I saw back when I lived in Japan (Howie Mandel live in Howie Would). The first four minutes of this old VHS tape rip should explain completely. (NSFW profanity warning!)



Seriously, their baby is as ugly as can be. I’m guessing that’s exactly what !Madarame is thinking. !Saki looks lovingly at the baby, then laughs because she sees !Madarame in the child. Naturally he’s going to deny that this creature from the unknown darkness looks anything like him. πŸ˜†

If I had to guess, I’d say that in the next chapter, the baby will look cuter, depending on how much time has passed.

I got a chuckle out of Madarame’s relief that he didn’t actually do anything with his wife because having sex with her right before she delivered would have been embarrassing. 😳

I really hope that Spotted Flower becomes a regular series now that Genshiken Nidaime is ending. I’d love to see !Saki’s and !Madarame’s life as a married couple with a child explored. With a full manga, this could produce some very interesting stories.

In the end, Spotted Flower chapter 19 is a nice, twelve page chapter where our couple finally are joined by their first child.

    Hahaha… The author went with realistic drawings for the baby, and it was a good chapter. Is this the final chapter?

    There are some accurate medical data there. It tell us that the author really puts a lot of work in his stories.

    By the way… Genshiken Nidaime #126 is out in English.
    And about that:
    [spoiler] Just finished reading. Then I came back here to read the spoiler on your #125 review. Good thing I resisted. And good bye Spotted Flower canon story.
    It was a good chapter… And the author just knew how to quell the otaku masses. Well played the Sue card, Kio Shimoku. [/spoiler]

      All chapters end with “Fin.” I’ve not heard that the manga is ending.

      I need to get Genshiken Nidaime 126 read. ^_^; I’m behind at the moment.

    Sorry for the double post… but there is a new pseudo-chapter of spotted flower #19,5… It has nothing much to tell… but there is a lot of PLOT. haha.

    Good night. Going to sleep. Can’t think in english now… and tomorrow will be a long day…

    Well, I’m a Spotted Flower true believer. Don’t care that Nidaime is ending. Nothing in Nidaime has completely ruled it out as of yet. Anyhow, denial aside 19.5 was pretty good too.

    [spoiler] Man, !Sue is actully coming off as at the very least quite Bi in that one. [/spoiler]

      Don’t care that Nidaime is ending. Nothing in Nidaime has completely ruled it out as of yet.

      That’s true, but there’s still one more chapter to go which may or may not put nails in.

      • George Mori says:

        Oh it very well may, no doubt. I just have hope, maybe a fools hope. We shall see.

        As I said, living in denial.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          Well, the way I look at it, Kio-sensei could always do something to all but bridge the gap that makes Spotted Flower canon. I suspect that even if Kio-sensei does something to all but make it sure that Madarame ended up with Saki (say in Spotted Flower by actually calling the characters by name), he’d give himself wiggle room for those who don’t want a Madarame x Saki ending.

          If Spotted Flower goes full on in publication, I’ll be happy enough. πŸ™‚

    I wanted to alert you to a new Spotted Flower short, but I guess I was ninja’d.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      The fact that there’s a new chapter so quickly, even if an ultra short one, has caused shock waves. πŸ˜†
