At first it started as a light comedy and I liked it, but now it gets disturbingly sad and deep... I don’t know what this series is anymore. It’s still enjoyable, but kinda difficult to read, in terms of feelings, that is.
The warmest and yet the teariest work I’ve read in a while with so much life in it. Kitty, I hope you do well in heaven and watch your hooman. We just don’t deserve cats, these fluffy balls of tenderness, and strength to everyone whose cat died. I too remember it sometimes and get very sad.
So... How does anything in the finale fit with Marika's initial compulsive desire to be "normal"? Did the story just forget her whole shtick by the end? You'd think these backstory revelations would clarify or tie back into her starting point in the story, but they seemingly don't, so...
I don’t really remember where the series started from since it’s been a long time, but now that you asked it, doesn’t it make perfect sense? Marika we followed wanted to be normal and have a boyfriend, but in the end we discovered that she’s actually not from the world with men. So her “normal” wasn’t to have a boyfriend and this is why she felt uncomfortable and unable being “normal”. When she returned to the world where she is originally from (with women), she understood that her “normal” is being a lesbian, since in her world that’s what’s normal because there are no men. Her desire is logically fulfilled then.
I've seen this dynamic in a bunch of other works too where one person never gives and the other person never receives (to the point where they don't even know how). And in the story it's treated as perfectly normal. But isn't that...kind of weird? Does that happen in real life?
Yeah, it does, but rarely. Usually, from what I heard from my local lesbian community, if the girl doesn’t want to do anything in bed and wants only to receive, her partner will probably break up with her after several sexual acts. Vice versa, if she doesn’t allow anything done to her, it is considered that she is shy, and most of the girls will try to make her open up and allow it.
But a situation like in manga happens sometimes anyway.
This work would be perfect with teensy bit of corrections. It was fun, interesting, beautiful, not really hard to follow except for several places, but the timeline was original and cool. And gosh, MC in a suite, so hottttt...
But it’s old. And it lacks couple of things. It feels like the author rushed to finish it. If only they would put a bit more of their soul into this manga.
I’d say they’re like sisters. Love each other? Yes. Live together? Yes. It’s just not romantic or sexual.
Labels are there for other people to understand what’s going on. If we don’t use them, we might as well read anout two boys or a girl and a cat, like why putting labels if it’s just lovey-dovey relationship? But I don’t want to read about boys and cats. I want my “labeled” yuri. And the thing is that this is not it. It’s just sisterly relationship, whether you want any labels or not.
