Come on, a kiss is nice, but she deserves sex already, she's one of the cutest childhood friends I've seen in years, can't end the manga without her senses being overloaded from pleasure.

It's an old debate in the gay community, but for me at least what she did with Akane in this chapter 100% counts as having sex with someone.

I would say direct genital stimulation has to occur, and akane never lost her panties. I wouldn't call dry humping sex, nor grinding. I also wouldn't really define it as sex if Jun just used the brush on Akane, even without panties, if she never touched her anywhere else directly during the session. If Jun kissed Akane or message her breasts while using the brush directly? That's when I would call it sex.

Am I the only one who notices that $1300 for a hotel laptop is insane? That kind of money would get you a gaming laptop with .5 terabyte SSD, i7-i9 processors, nvidia gtx 3050-3060, and 144 hz. Unless the hotel owner girl is actually a hard-core gamer, it would be pretty hard to find a regular laptop with that kind of pricing.

Still waiting on confirmation of if Mori-san is a girl before celebrating the birth of a new yuri couple. They could just be a guy who notices the small details.

Mori has obvious boob curves, Okano calls Mori a girl... Mori could turn out to be a trans man but it seems an unlikely narrative direction.

Very likely a girl, but I have seen quite a few dudes with similar boob curves. I very much doubt it tho

Where do you live where skinny dudes have boob curves?

Never heard Red Hot Chili Peppers called RHCP before. But then, I haven't really paid attention to them since the early '90s.

I'm assuming it was abbreviated both for space and to match how Aya referred to them in the original, which was just Re-chili.

Hm, I didn't really see biggest connection between Aria and Al Kamil. We never really saw any turmoil with Aria when Al Kamil was originally meant to be executed, so her unwillingness to finish her off is not very well conveyed or relatable. To be fair, they did spend 1000 years together, but your telling me Aria never had a single red flag that whole time?

In any case, i can't say I totally blame the author for that. It can be hard to convey a millennium old connection in 1 and half chapters, and its clear the author was a little rushed given how quickly Al Kamil flipped, however I do feel like the author could've painted their relationship different than just "sisters." Perhaps if Aria saw Al Kamil as more of a daughter, and her unwillingness to finish her off stemmed from Aria seeing a part of herself in Al Kamil, there would be a stronger emotion conveyed by their relationship.

I guess Al Kamil's comment towards Ichika about how killing feels nice, despite Ichika's obviously disturbed reaction, makes a little more sense now at least.

While not a bad chapter and i always love it when Harumin is the focus, the whole talk they had felt a lil too much like the author was writing directly to the reader instead of through the characters' stories. Like it felt too info dumpy and like a lecture if that makes sense lol.

That sense was reinforced for me by what seemed like a lot of pretty random framing once Kana and Harumin sat down together and started talking.

Sarubouta’s not exactly meticulous in the choice of shots within a scene anyway, but this time I really noticed that the shot/reverse shots were kind of awkward in regard to who is speaking, the cutaway shots (like the one of Kana’s shoes or of Harumin’s back) were pretty unmotivated, and the overhead shots just seemed thrown in to add variety to a talky scene.

And I’m not sure what to make of the composition of the bottom panel here (I just saw a “how-to” page for aspiring cartoonists that said, “Draw your word balloons in first to make sure you have room for your picture.” Seems like good advice.):

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/citrus_september_7th#13

I think it also didn't help that 85% of the chapter was just Kana talking and Harumin just sitting there like a statue lol. And then when Harumin does talk it's just like one page and then Kana goes on to further clarify to the reader the lesson she just learned xD. It doesn't flow like a natural conversation.

I 100% got a weird feeling while reading those pages but couldn't quite put into words why, but you guys totally nailed it. I also had the same feeling a few chapters ago when Mei word vomited advice on Yuzu for a couple of pages. I actually couldn't even read them through, and just ended up skipping them.

It also sucks when the whole chapter is just a set up for the word vomit, so if you don't like the advice the whole chapter is kind of wasted. I mean, we didn't get any hint of personality or interesting chemistry between these two supposedly unique characters. Yuzu's friend just shows up, says let's hang, and then they jump right into their weird conversation where it's pretty much just the author possessing Harumin to give advice to, I guess the reader? I'm not sure. It double sucks because this was never something Saburouta did in the og manga, and just sort of adds to the list of subtle quality drops in this sequel that Saburouta has been slowly dragging through the dirt for like 3 years.

I am going to put it on the record that at this point in time, this story is incredible. if that changes, I will be sad

As much as I love the Kase San series I don't like how all the guys in it are faceless idiots

I think its funny. Plus, there was the recent guy who was the prince of that flower show Yamada liked, who came and taught at her college causing a whole bunch of jealous drama with Kase, and the prince ended up giving some pretty good advice to Kase about how her jealousy could damage her and Yamada's relationship.

Why do all the "Trials" seem to involve Melissa and Tanya flirting?

Cause in universe a witch's power is directly correlated with how gay they are, so the gayer they get the more powerful they get.

I've always wondered if Japanese people in real life would have as much trouble as romance manga characters do with dropping honorifics. It seems exaggerated, but I also realize that honorifics hold a lot more wait in Japanese society than American, so it's easy for me to read stuff like this and say "it can't be that hard."

Am the only one who's nervous that they broke up because Tadokoro remembers Sakurako in her school uniform? Like she's remembering a high school fling.

This manhua is somewhat western in how it tells a story through comic form. Sometimes it feels like it could've been produced in the states. Not to say it's "better" than eastern stuff, it just feels more relatable.

Somehow I missed checking this out. I generally dislike ghost/girl romance stories- after all, there is only 2 ways to end it- and both kinda suck lol.

Ok, so there's a third where they get together but can't interact- but that would be pretty lame too.

There's always the "they were only half dead and in a coma" ending.

its like they have no issues so new ones just got made

This is a conflict that has been constantly brought up and built on since the first few chapters after they got together

Huh, I just saw this extra on Twitter and noticed the joke was that Aya used "てば," which to my understanding is just a cutesy copulate like です and dosen't have a direct translation, and was curious to see how the translator worked around it. I feel like if I were to translate it I'd maybe have Aya say "I told you it was, like, totally this way" or something, and then have Mitsuki say"'like' she says" but I'd be curious to hear other people's ideas.

Also, I totally just noticed that Mitsuki is also taking a pic of Aya, lol. That's so cute

Omg they also having maching bags

I think they have pictures of eachother on the back of their phones too this image is so detailed

$18 for a salmon pasta at a fancy restaurant? At a local cafe near me it's $25 for a damn chicken parmesean.

Also, for all the moral qualms I have over Nakano, what she said was pretty hot and her completely dominating Miyako was...wow

Also what happened to her fingers? Is she biting them?

Nah, she started playing guitar. Remember a couple a chapters ago where her uncle bought her a guitar to cheer her up?

Love that not even world building can get in the way of tropes, lol. The fact that yukatas exist in this semi-modern jrpg like medieval town kinda threw me for a second, but whateves.

Also, can anybody tell what exactly the "sheepa expression of love is?" Is it like a shove? A headbutt? I can't fully tell from that one panel.

Author tweeted that they are in the middle of moving, so no chapter this week

Tweet: 作者も只今引っ越し中でして、今週はお休みいたします。最近はモヤモヤが多めの2人ですが、それでも読んでいただけて本当に嬉しいです。いつもありがとうございます、大好きです!!

Translation: The author is in the middle of moving right now, so I'm taking a break this week. I know the two of them have been getting more gloomy as of late, but I'm really happy you're still reading. Thank you as always, love!!

I think "did we have anything" works if you think about it like Mariya asking if they had any food before they left, since, even though time has past since they left, they didn't go to the store, so the state of their food would be the same as when they left.

What is the pizza joke a about? To my knowledge "pizza" is piza in japanese and head is atama. is it supposed to be some sort of pun?

Remember kids. Glasses don't actually do anything and can be gotten rid of at a moments notice.

She could be far sighted and only needs them to teach from the book. Not much reading to do while manning a food stand.

So uh, with the magical girl hunt, are we just supposed to accept the fact that the two girls on the team literally committed mass genocide against highschool girls and then just...said "sorry?" Are we not gonna talk about that?
