She does not know him IRL (or her at all, at this point) but she has had an enormous crush on him for several years, as he was the first even slightly older person to take her seriously as a person, first looking after her when she entered the game and then even moreso as an equal once she gained experience. She avoided confessing to him all this time because she was afraid being just two years younger (and, especially, a middle-schooler) would lead him to not take her feelings seriously. Her hope was that his charms would stay hidden long enough for her to get to high school where she'd finally shoot her shot. Her negative reaction to the batsu game came in part from her genuine concern he would be hurt, but also in no small part from her panic that she'd be left behind for good.
Ouch. I mean I was already expecting a feelsbad but, I mean... That's what happens when you don't do anything.
Do you happen to know if that ever comes to light to MC or FMC (if she actually joins them in-game)?

She develops an in-game chat conversation with FL after she is introduced to the guild, a conversation which eventually spills into voice calls between the two. Over the course of these talks, Peach-san tells Nanami everything, partly as an apology and partly as catharsis.

But the MC doesn't know that. If you hear someon is going to ask you out as a punishment, it might take a lot for you to start thinking they really like you.
He didn't doubt it at any point at the start (when he should've) there's no reason he'd start doubting it now. She's shown pretty clearly that she likes him. He'd have to be uncharacteristically dense to not notice.

He reminds himself multiple times that they are only going to date for a month and that she doesn't really like him.

The solution was the best after all.

Nanami has 100 attack but 0 defense when it comes to love.

Btw, MC has the grace and skill of a rhino when sending messages.

Stereotypically, most men tend towards direct, factual communication. Communication provides an answer, fact, or achieves some goal. Tact and/or the recipient's feelings are secondary to ensuring the message was delivered precisely.
Women tends towards indirect communication: the social connection between conversation participants is more important than the data or the message.

So, to put on my "Guy" hat, "I love you" is honest, accurate, and to the point. Success! :korone:

“Why don’t you say you love me anymore?”
”I already told you ‘I love you’ when I married you. I’ll let you know if it changes.”

The dad's anatomy is God damn ridiculous.

I'm starting to believe that there really are 14-year-olds drawing manga.

well this could be saw coming from even a mile.... No woman is gonna act like that for you if you have known them through a game and as a teammate only.

I wonder if there's a deeper reason behind Baron leaving so suddenly. Or it was just an excuse to get Peach and Ryoushin some time to talk alone.
