For some reason I never realized there was more than the Prequel and I have to say this took an unexpexted turn for me.
The story is irritating in a good way - like @themusicman500 said, this can (and does) definitely happen to people who don't really think much of themselves. When you're like that it's really hard to believe that anyone could actually like you, so I see why MC went with the one who put it more clearly to her. Hopefully she'll soon get over her insecurity and realize what's going on.

Noooo why would you leave her side when you clearly want to stay!!! Jeez what's up with these characters always half-assing their own desires

I can accept this, lol. Not that it was never acceptable to begin with.

There's no accepting it. They are the new yuri gods now

Err, I thought MC-chan was the anti-MC, she was suppobsed to be the drama defuser... Will she make it?!

Ikr?! But I still have faith!!! Looks like she's already taking the hint

I find it nice that even with all the chaos that must be in her head at the moment, Kaoru still doesn't simply detatch completely from her husband; it seems like something that would happen irl

It'd be rad if they tried to sort this out like normal people would and not with the whole 'but you're a girl too!' or 'boys are gross' stuff

Guess I'll wait and see!

I forgot to add, basically I don't want it to be like NTR.

Saw "Pieta" and "sequel," almost slipped a disc.

Completely agreed, mate

Awww, I'm a bit disappointed to see all the yuri potential go to waste - for a moment it really looked as if it was building up to something.

Guess we'll have to settle for the usual older relative x edgy girl sidecouple... better than nothing I suppose

I gotta say I've fallen in love with this protag, she's the fucking cliche / trope destroyer. I feel like in every chapter when drama happens, she just doesn't give a shit and pushes through. When time I get worried she might run away and get into an emotional crisis like every other MC she just runs up to her edgy waifu and smacks some sense into her.

Bless Ena and bless you for this beautiful comment

I like to interpret this not only as a critique of heteronormativity, but also as a slap to forced drama based on poor communication, which are both very common themes in all romance manga as far as I can tell.

If it wasn't for the rushed and badly thought out resolution (with regards to poor Masato mostly) I'd say this was a very good story.

so far it appears the author had a pretty good idea of what he/she wanted to go for in each oneshot; I quite like that!

That was pretty sweet! Plus the art is cute (and smexy as well)

the art is good enoug, but I really have trouble understanding what's going on in each single panel, not to mention the whole thing

Yamanaka may be (have been?) an ass, but frankly I'm fine with that. Why? 'Cause Taneda seems to be perfectly aware of this and to have her priorities in order: just like she said, she could have thrown herself at Yamanaka and not be rejected anytime she wanted, but she knows she wants to be desired for her to be fine.

I really like characters that know what they're about and are aware of what will and will not satisfy them, and Taneda is certainly one of them: she's been honest with her boyfriend, but most importantly, she's being honest with herself. And that's great imo.

ooh Taneda's accepting the gay

and I like the fact that she feels bad for her bf, that doesn't always happen

I'm super happy with the writing in this: it's so refreshing to see yuri characters truly understand and consequently communicate with each other. Plus, Yuu is showing an impressive understanding of her own needs as well as Touko's: not only she denies the kiss because it won't solve Touko's deeper problems, but she also did it out of self respect.
Although I like the genre even as is, I think it's wonderful to see how yuri explore more complex emotions and problems than just the 'standard' ones. Point is, I love this series and I hope it inspires many more interesting ones to come.
