It was so damn cute!
The scene with Hana crying in the tub, her emotions were exposed and naked for all to see, she's in love.....
Artwork for those scenes were great, author tends to (as all artist do usually) refine his work and shading during the dramatic moments.
I think I've seen this before ....., and " normal "?
Oh well, it's still cute
I enjoyed that about the meaning of the names.
I love this series.
It's probably just me, but in the last chapter as Nobara and Yukino sit on the bed together planning for the clubs training camps, when I look at Nobara's eyes, as she sits on the bed, looking up at Yukino as Yukino gets up to go to bed for the night, there is emotion in Nobara's eyes, it seems like longing, like 'don't leave me alone please, I miss you.'
I found it sweet and touching. The hug and head rub were the icing on the cake for me. So delicious!
"I'm not saying that all yuri stories should be interchangeable with het stories. I'm just saying that I'm glad that yuri stories are becoming more humanized, if that makes sense. That's not due to any particular fandom interests, that's a shift that I think has resulted from society's evolving views on homosexuality."
I can easily relate to this, and I'm glad it was said. I really enjoyed yaoi and het romances when I was younger, but as I grew older I started to enjoy yuri more and more, and began to change my own views on my own sexuality and that of my friends. I can only hope that this discussion means that society is moving beyond stereotypes.
I only hope that wonderful tranlations will be available one day soon.
I know it's only my opinion. I think that's what makes series like this fun. Trying to see who done it, or who ends up with who. Without having to look 39 chapters ahead on some sketchy site with the raws.
Katooka does think about Washio a lot. She is always worrying about being alone with Washio, obsessed with being normal around her, making all this effort to show off her supposed boyfriend to Washio,(yes, I'm doubting that there is a relationship.)
Why go thru all the effort?
Why doesn't she spend this much time worrying about what Tsukasa thinks?
I believe it's because she is recognizing for the first time, that real love could exist in Washio's heart for her. And Katatooka is beginning to wrestle with the doubts about her own feelings.
Washio is steady, unyielding in her love for Katooka. I don't think the author will let that go unfulfilled.
Whereas Tsukasa keeps slowly getting more comfortable with Asakura , with her brothers help,(unintended).
I'm still hopeful for a sweet yaoi scene though.
Katooka ends up with Washio.
It seems like it's going that way for now. Katooka is trying almost too
hard to push Washio away. In most stories this usually fails. And Washio has very much so decided she's not giving up on her love for Katooka, in most stories this kind of tenacity always wins out in the end. Tsukasa seems most likely to end up with Asakura. Based on how hard Asakura has fallen for her. I wanted yaoi. But Subaru seems to be utterly lost in his sister dominated mind. I'm not sure if Asakura can break him free of this disturbing fantasy, maybe only Tsukasa can help him, if she makes an obvious commitment to Asakura. I believe she will in time.
Washio's love is pure, very pure. To the extent that she just wants to treasure it for the brief moment in time it exist. I feel her pain.
I'm not entirely sure where the author is going with this. But it's very real world like in the doubts and pain one feels when becoming aware of your true feelings inside yourself.
Subaru is the most refreshing character so far. He accepts how he feels about cross dressing and his sister, and so far, he's okay with it. He's not trying to purge himself of these feelings and become "normal".
I like the way that the romance seems to be building slowly, but it's coming. Nobara is funny. In her own strange way.
I count what, 3 romances building up. Yukino and Nobara. Ookami and Akai. Okisaki and Kinoshita .
Btw, love the cardigan that Yukino loans to Nobara. Want it.
I still don't know what to think of Katooka. I felt sorry for her at first. But the fact that she wants to uncover everyone's feelings. Get it all out there, because she feels despair over unrequited love. Who benefits from that? No one. What does it make better? Nothing in the short term.
It just spreads the hurt around. So everyone can hurt, as much as she does.
She's being selfish.
