There's a play called Norway.today which has basically this as its plot. It's for a guy and a girl though.

Hint: ASK FOR CONSENT FIRST BEFORE YOU TIE SOMEONE UP.

Every abusive relationship relies on co-dependence. Without any context (the manga is simply too short to sport a functional plot) there's not much that can be said in favour of the relationship.

These situations are all virtually impossible to pull off today. Mobile phones have killed them.

The way that last page goes, I wouldn't bet on Yumiko's husband reaching old age...

Really nice little story. = )

BTW: Is it me or did the translator mess up a bit? She constantly refers to herself as a "freelancer" when it really should be "freeter".

In fact that detail is good. It dovetails with her optimism and happy-go-lucky ways. "Freeter" tends to have a more negative connotation, like you feel bad about being one.

When Riyoko Ikeda is writing The Rose of Versailles / Oniisama E and the like, she writes in a context where gay couples are not tolerated in a social basis. The stable couple born out of romantic love is something that becomes much easier to understand and portray once you can actually form a stable couple with the person you love without social rejection. Aside of the possible issues with censorship, part of the reason why older stories tend to end in tragedy is that authors couldn't imagine what "happily ever after' looked like. The stories with which the authors and audiences could relate were heartbreak and pain. Look at the fictional literature about gay people in Western countries and you'll find a similar pattern. When Death in Venice is written, Thomas Mann knows that Tadzio and the noble guy can't end up together.

Obviously this is all before the commoditization of yuri for a fully different, mostly male audience.

  1. Sad dog faces
  2. Lolicon
  3. Immersion - hostile situations

Looks like this Soft charm "artist" deserves to go the nope list.

I prefer the anime. Jo provides a better foil, antisocial as she is. The last third is terrible though, it makes no sense.

Probably the creepiest part is the fact that Tsubasa keeps saying how beyond her control the whole act is.

It's great how visual gags work so well in a usually serious story.

This is probably the best example of how to do light romance in a sweet, fluffy, and credible way at the same time. They feel like real people in love.

So much angst, yet I find Mei completely unrelatable. I want Yuzu to bite off her throat in anger, not to kiss her.

The whole scene feels so played out and forced to fit the standards. There is certainly good drawing talent, but this plot goes nowhere.

It's a quirky little thing, and fun to read. It's not going to win any awards, but it's good as a divertimento of sorts.

South Korea, of course. If you hadn't said you're close to Japan I'd have bet on India.
From my friends' experiences in the country, it seems that Koreans are huge on busybody behavior... is gossiping some kind of national sport there?

Back on the topic, from what I've read, it seems that the "homosexuality as a teenage phase" is a very widespread thought.

The level of detail of the drawing style is bordering obsession. Look at those elaborate clothing designs for example. This looks good.

Holy gee, a by-the-book vampire story which is well done!

I was worried about this at first, cause the art looked generic and I thought it was gonna be very boring moe moe plotless stuff. But luckily that was just a facade, and it's actually really fun and fucked up. I approve!

QFT. Ear poop + horny dogs + moe = AWESOME.

This was a good one. It's nice that we don't even get shown who the new girlfriend is. it adds to the feeling of... being robbed that the protagonist has.

Feasts on the angst as though it was a delicate pastry...

Lillicious themselves put the NSFW template, so I'm suggesting to add the tag.

This is quite unconventional, as it shows professional women who work outside the usual OL setting. It stands out just for that, but it's decent as well on its own.

Incidentally, vanilla is the term that BDSM lifestylers use to define non-BDSM life.
