Does anybody remember reading a manga about a girl that limps and thinks she's a mermaid? She had marks on her skin and says its cause of pollution, but in reality she's being abused by her stepfather. At one point her dog disappeared and is found dead on a mountain. She is also found dead on the same mountain near the end.
Well, from what I've learned from Japanese class. The Japanese culture heavily emphasizes on subtlety when it comes to things like love. In Japan, one doesn't say "Aishiteru" or "I love you" to express fondness for other people, they say "Suki" or "I like you" even for people they've known their whole life. It's like being told "I love you. Will you marry me and have my babies?" from someone you've just met on the street. It's just plain creepy. In short, the Japanese don't say it, they feel it, which is exactly what Miman might've been going for.
What a great week, new stuff from Mikuni Hajime, Morishima Akiko and Takemiya Jin, plus a chapter of Nekugurui Minako-san and doujins by Tama II and Hayashiya Shizuru. The yuri goddesses have smiled upon us for sure!
Don't forget all the great /u/ animes the goddesses have bestowed to us this summer.
Mainly: Hanayamata, Locodol and Sabagebu.
