Commenting on this just to bookmark it. This gives me such a wonderfully light feeling

Yuyuko X Yukari is for adult dramatic love (actually, I don't quite understand what that means myself).

No-one does. And yet we come back to it, every single time.

I adore the undercurrent of cynicism here. Just two flawed people falling in love. It’s only a matter of time until their next spat, but does that really matter? People choose to be together for all sorts of reasons.

I've decided I like this one. This is high school to a tee

The best thing about this manga is that they’re teenagers who feel like such inscrutable outcasts because they like the most middling mainstream rock music imaginable

I imagine Western rock is niche in the same way that Japanese music is niche here. Not impossible to find someone who listens to it regularly but it'd be a couple of people out of 100 thing.

Can't imagine singing idol pop in front of the whole grade for my crush though, I wonder how Aya sees anything behind those massive steel balls

I saw him dancing there by the record machine
I knew he must have been about 17
The beat was going strong, playing my favorite song
I could tell it wouldn't be long 'till he was with me
Yeah me
I could tell it wouldn't be long 'till he was with me

^ that but in awful japanese

I love this manga but know full well that if I'd read any of my high school classmates' shitty horny fanfics, I'd have been dry as a bone

Say what you will about Ami but at least she's being honest on pg.20

Better than those types that say "I'll spend all my time with you!" out of a sense of obligation and then drop you after 2 weeks

Just want to remind everyone that this is a romantic story too; it's not just about masochism and niche fetishes.

what's romance doing in my lovely manga about masochism and niche fetishes

Flowerchild making a manga without toxicity would be like Hidetaka Miyazaki making a Souls or related game without poison swamps lmao

I fucking cackled

This reappeared Aya seems to be fully functional and capable of independent feeling and thinking, and also corporeal enough for a check up at hospital, so I think we can rule out the "ghost" and "Koto's and Erika's projection" theories.

I initially thought the same as you, but remember that we've only heard about the checkup & dad's permission from Koto and Erika's lips. We've never actually seen anyone besides Koto and Erika interact with this new Aya. I'll believe it when I see it.

Edit: It just occurred to me that Japan takes spirits a bit more literally than the typical Western model. They run around and play tricks and do things. Sometimes even fall in love with mortals and have kids. So Aya may be corporeal, but I doubt she will stick around for longer than it takes for the other 2 to resolve their feelings.

These characters are more emotionally constipated than me and that's saying something

I feel that Aya is more likely to be a manifestation of unresolved feelings both Koto and Erika have. She is not 'real' in the sense that she will stay on and have a happily ever after with one or both of them.

Hard to specify what makes me so sure of the above, but 1) she only appears when they return to their hometown and 2) she is not the personality she used to be, but more a projection of what Koto and Erika think a 14-year-old girl should be. Very 'psychological ghost'-y.

I foresee that Aya's reappearance will force Koto and Erika to figure out themselves, then Aya will disappear back into the great unknown.

Of course, being the author, Kabocha-san can do whatever they want.

Well that was the final nail in the coffin. Now I can go back to reading 'How Do I Get Together With My Childhood Friend?' and 'Our Yuri Started With Me Getting Rejected in a Dream' and all the idiot schoolgirl fluff pieces I can't tell apart from this one

My favorite yuri mangaka of all time

Sometimes I wonder why she’s not more people's fave but then I remember not everyone’s mentally ill

I hope she keeps her answer ambiguous for another couple of volumes

because we all know that requited love is no longer interesting
