Still, I rooted for Miku x Anna.

Too bad it didn't happen in the end. Lame.

Stretch is yuri

/discuss

Stretch strikes me as more obviously catered to a sort of male audience than any number of the more pornographic works on the site, honestly, because of that sort of plausible deniability of any level of gayness. Like, "there's still a chance, dudes" sort of thinking

I disagree.

Stretch is more josei than anything. Aimed at a young to middle-aged women demographic. The stretching lessons are obviously for them.

And I wouldn't say it's yuri, though the potential was there. It was just implied and one-sided. That it wasn't "realized" is pretty realistic, as was the whole manga.

It's still a good read.

As for yuri content, it seems like it'll be lighthearted and flirty, with the obligatory sexual harassment between girls, as >opposed to "romance".

What a waste. Gonna drop this one I guess. Tags are indeed misleading.

I will still read it for the fun, not for the "yuri".

But I don't think it will go further than girls flirting and groping each other in the locker room.

For me, the essence of a yuri story is romance between girls and they have to be the MCs and the romance the center of the story at least. Wherever it's published.

Prunus Girl is not yuri for example. There's a lesbian sidecouple, which is nice, but this manga is not about romance between girls. Hourou Musuko is not yuri, because it's not about romance. It's about gender identity.

Takemiya Jin's manga are yuri. Morishima, Morinaga, Canno, Nakatani write yuri stories too.

Knight Tale doesn't seem to have any romance to speak of, from what I have read. It seems to be a pretext to show girls fighting and ending up in compromising positions and ahegao faces.

But maybe later there is more, who knows, so I will wait to see some romance there.

But this is my opinion, and none is forced to agree with it.

Hmmm... I don't know if this is yuri or not.

After reading it, I just thought that it was a classic case of unintentional lady-killer swooning girls all over the place by acting like a prince/knight. With lots of blushing, lots of "I will protect you" and "swoooooon", but it will never go beyond a princess carry and a hug.

I'd call that "fake yuri", or "class S" yuri. A la Maria-sama, where it's implied that it's just a harmless youth thing. The setting of an all-girl school with a system of knighthood doesn't plead for real yuri.

And the heavy ecchi content, with panty-shots, naked boobs and molestation pleads for a hentai hungry male demographic target

I will believe it's yuri if the two MC girls ever kiss or acknowledge mutual romantic feelings (and not the side characters).

Maybe some people who read ahead can give more information.

It looks like it could be yuri, it smells like yuri, but as of now, I don't think it deserves the yuri tag.

Agari will obviously lose.

Or MC will not play against the captain.

And I'm pretty sure the captain is a trap.

The editing is a bit lazy, with the ugly whitening of the original writing.

But it's still legible, so whatever.

Err, I believe Lyendith mentioned that this release is the LQ version because their redrawer is late, so they wanted to push this out for those dying to read the next chapter and that they'll be reuploading it once the redrawing is finished.

Oh, you're right. I had forgotten they mentioned this. The redrawing, which is usually good quality, just made me raise eyebrows this time. I was not complaining, just being a bit "shocked".

But I understand they wanted to get it out as fast as possible, as long as there's a HQ version later.

Would the resolution to Amane x Nina x Ryou in ch30 count for the Polyamory tag?

I suggested it already, but it would be spoilery. It's up to the site admins.

And the triangle got solved in a poly relationship, so I suggested the polyamory tag for the chapter. (though it would be a spoiler I guess...)

The relationship is quite balanced at the end.

Amane is the anchor between Nina and Ryou, and at this point, if one of them were to go, the other two would be sad.

Still Amane didn't get enough development. She looks the type who would add more people to the mix if she ever met someone interesting.

I know that some parents are irresponsible and leave their kids alone at home. but this trope is much too present in manga. I just can't take it seriously.

Whenever an author needs to make a sad lonely kid, they whip out absent or abusive parents.

Anyway, I sense a rival for Mimika. Someone who felt ignored.

This love that won't reach

Looks definitely interesting, even though angst isn't everyone's cup of tea... (isn't it, Nevri? ;)

4 chapters out and it's still interesting.

No idea where it's headed, though.

The husband seem pretty unreliable and fickle, but not completely a bad guy until now. Though I wonder if that girl talk about cheating isn't foreshadowing.

And that Risako girl that arrived last and didn't participate in that discussion, looks like a good candidate for being the husband thief.

Kaoru looks very naive.

Yeah, Canno never showed any inclination to leave any of her characters out of love and alone. She makes light drama, not aaaaaangst.

Every pairings she made until now worked out somehow.

It'd be quite funny if at the end of the day, it was Amane, the polyamorous, who was left out because she failed to commit to anyone.

If by funny you mean tired bullshit. I'll be deeply unimpressed if this ends in monogamy.

It was ironical.

I don't know how it will turn out.

Yuunagi needs affection and understanding and Hiruma gives it to her. She notices how "warm" she is.

Amane seems cold in comparison. Accepting of everyone's love, but cold. The depth of her feelings seem quite shallow.

Yuunagi can perfectly imagine Amane breaking up because her need of exclusivity. Amane doesn't come across as committed, or really in love, with either of them. She likes them and is at ease dating both, but is not in love with them.

At least, that's how I see her written by Canno (and not necessarily an accurate example of poly people).

Something stronger seem to happen between Hiruma and Yuunagi, because they bring something to each other, where Amane seems only to take.

The sexual tension is strong in that one.

The fact that she's an elementary schooler stays disturbing though.

But that's what the author is aiming for probably : riding the fine edge between sexual tension (but genuine feelings) and the frowned upon age problem.

It's cleverly done.

All work deserves payment.

If they work, they are not pets. If they are not paid, they are slaves.

I'm going to have to have a word with my parents about all those years of slavery then.

Chores are not work.

If, for example, your parents owned a shop and made you work at the cash register without paying you, it qualifies as undeclared work and it's illegal. You can sue them.

Even working in the fields in your family's farm is supposed to be declared.

But as this story is in an imaginary Victorian setting, I suppose labor laws are pretty weak. And the master saying "just do whatever you want" means she bought a pet, not an employee.

Anyway, it's obvious the author didn't want to delve that far in the details of his world. He just want to show cute furry girls having cute interactions with humans and other cute furries. That she'd have no wages isn't relevant to the story.

By the way, I ship Mel & Fran. Because Tsundere.

That is all.

Especially is their work could be done by humans.

Let's hope there's no unemployment in their world...

So... Fuuka managed to avoid getting trucked in the anime... I'm not even watching this shit and i feel betrayed!

What? I don't watch it, mostly because the manga is at an eyes-rolling-up level, but.... WHAT? Fuuka lives??? How can they make the story coherent if she lives? She's sent "abroad" or something? She's THE recent source of the truck meme. It's even called being Fuuka'd.

Still thinking that Ayane did what she had to do in order to get what she wanted. Looking at the result, she comes out on top, without question.

Maybe people don't want to relate to her, because she's "an horrible person", but looking at it with cynicism, she did a good job.

The problem in Japan is that the teachers often turn a blind eye or worse, contribute to the bullying because the target is disturbing the peace.

Schools are businesses in Japan, as high school is not mandatory. Teachers are encouraged to have peaceful classes with good results because it raises the reputation of the school and they get better evaluation and more money.

So a kid that doesn't fit is a nuisance.

The US has more or less the same problems, because federal money depends on the results of the school. So getting rid of weak kids instead of helping them is tempting.

But then in the US kids have guns...
