I liked this one, although there is a point where I really wanted to kick the main character because of her lies. I read everything by Yamaji Ebine after this. Love her art (and taste in music).
I too wanted to kick Rutsu. I may be a lesbian, but I was not happy how she was using Ryuuji. I don't blame her for falling in love with Tamaki while being with Ryuuji, but she should have broken up with him right when she realized it. I too sympathize with Tamaki, but I guess not as much since I knew Rutsu would end up with her...
Anyways, though my rant was about a fictional character, I very much enjoyed this story. It was very well written and I quite fancied the style. One thing I really love about this author that is very hard to find in most series, she (or he) was able to end the series without making it seemed rushed. Maybe she had freedom of time where other authors may not. Regardless, Ebine was able to wrap this and "Free Soul" up very nicely.
Wow, I really like this series. I really like how the author wrote about an African American, even if it was a story within a story. I wonder if Angie's story was originally in Japanese as well.
So Niki got over finding her dad by finding him, and then fucking him? Someone explain to me how that's not weird. I like this manga, but that little detail is insurmountable to me - it's just too bizarre.
I totally agree with you. But I am totally biased. I don't mind reading mangas with sister incest. But all other incest grosses me out. And if I had a sister, I would be grossed out even thinking about an incestrial relationship. Lol, but I don't feel bad about my bias as it is only in manga.
Lol, I love this! I deff let this sit in my "to read" list far too long. I think I would have liked a lil more angst before the all live together part. But eh, I think I like having drama a lil too much. I need to live in a world where this is possible.
I got so lucky and found a good used Volume 1 for 4 bucks (8 with shipping) online. I haven't touched it yet though because I didn't want to torture myself as Volume 2 was like 60 bucks. I patiently waited 3 months and to my surprise, I found a good used Volume 2 for 9 bucks (13 shipping) and it's on the way now. Can't wait to read it. The reviews make this series look promising.
I love Milk. Her manga was the first that I read. The sigh, pink, whatever series reeled me in. I love her lengthy series but also hate how now that I've read all of them, I will have to wait real time for a new one like everyone else :'(
The manga is a bit ironic in some way. Japanese scientists seem to be making the biggest strides towards methods of either same-sex reproduction or self-reproduction (as in, grow another you). And they really do need it, along with other eastern countries, because more and more people are choosing not to reproduce (busy with careers, love freedom, women don't want to end up slaves like their mothers, etc).
On the same coin, though, it does put life into perspective. We're always forcing more people into the world to take care of problems they had no hand in making,whether through natural birth or new scientific means. It's pretty sad.
Not to mention the fact that it's illegal for same sex couples to have children in Japan. And I thought the Eastern countries were even more over populated, so I don't see why it's needed.
And all the women on that host club will moves to Carmilla. It seems they'll need to open a new section to serve women ;)
Anyway, I knew it's just a manga, but how does one looks (overly) attractive just to female while being avoided by males? I can imagine if she looks somewhat butchy, but she even far from being androgynous. And I bet guys likes androgynous girls too.
It may have to do with the look on her face when she sees an attractive man. She gets all awkward and twisted faced because she's putting to much effort into it. With women, she's like "Eh, just something I gotta do to get the job done." At least, that's my opinion.
You just gave me hope for this series because I was just about to drop it, since it seemed like Yurika was just never going to stop sleeping with EVERYBODY. I'm kind of bummed she's CLEARLY not a virgin anymore but I can accept that as long as I know there's a decent, nice, yuri ending.
You know, technically she's still a virgin. She provides all the pleasure, and though it's been months since I started this series, I don't ever remember her getting pleasured.
