Dude, she either just confirmed a lesbian character is raped or consents to heterosexual sex, which is somewhat invalidating to lesbianity, and neither of which I'm looking for when I put money down for a yuri game.

I don't think Christine Love is 100% on how the concept of lesbianism works

I am beyond pissed and disappointed, I've been anticipating this game for over a year. I guess I'll just buy Flowers instead.

So we're back into ignoring Ayaka and Yurine.......

I'm fine with this, they are pretty boring as characters, and dynamic.

Ayaka's desire to not disappoint her mother, and the damage it has done to her mental health are actually quite interesting in my book, which is why I'm all up for them

I get frustrated at how they show up for an infodump chapter or two and then disappear indefinitely. Spoils the tension. And I like Ayaka. :(

Lol /u/ is comparing us to tumblr again, like come on guys you have better insults and you know damn well nobody on here is tumblr levels of dumb.

It was pretty bad a year or two ago, but I think most of the guilty parties have grown out of that phase and moved on.

I really can't see someone actually going through this kind of issue . It seems so unreal and full of overly stimulated anxiety .

Man, I sure wish I were you.

Ah I missed YKA in there. I've kinda ignored it because from what I've heard it's like surrealist yuri which isn't my cup of tea.

If you have to mention "subtext level" than it's not textually gay which is my entire point.

Technically isn't all subtext part of the text?

Hmm, i guess i just don't believe the whole idea of all children being %100 non-corrupt until the "magic" of adolescence, that there couldn't possibly be a child who would become "corrupt" without it being the effect of actions directly caused by an adult, i have the feeling i'm reading too much into this stuff now, thanks Yuzumori-san.

There's nothing's inherently corrupt about sexual play - afaik there hasn't been a huge amount of study into it due to largely Puritan attitudes surrounding children, but it seems to be something quite natural that children partake of as they become aware of themselves and their sexuality. An adult taking advantage of a child for their personal satisfaction is pretty corrupt though.

But this is just a cute fictional mango, right?

This chapter actually resonated far more with me than the first one. Thankfully I've never had many/any issues with self-harm/disordered eating, but I've had anxiety issues and been depressed, and spent a lot of time stressing my mental and physical health to do what I thought was expected of me only to wonder "what now?" and why I wasn't happy once I'd achieved the things others wanted for me.

So now I just shitpost and play videogames and I'm really a lot happier.

I kinda... don't care about whats going on in this manga.
Anyone knows whats ahead? Is there Yuri in this? if so from which chapter?

This manga is kinda hard to understand for anyone who hasn't gone through depression, as someone who suffers from it a lot I think this manga is a masterpiece so far.
But the Yuri here isn't really the point.

Ppl go through things. I've experience shit myself, and still am. I've had family members who have gone through hard things, stuff much harder to cope with than what is going on in the manga.
Either way, it does not mean that I will automatically care for this.

Was just asking if yuri happens at any point and when, in case anyone knows, cuz I don't have much interest on this as it is. Unless yuri comes into the mix.

You still sort of sounded like a dick.

And nobody wants dicks on Dynasty.

How fucking nice was that interviewer who told her to draw manga though.

I don't like when the manga is in american english T_T we don't learn taht english in the schools

Uh more specifically, american english how? The spelling? The accents? The vocab?

When she's at home Kazuki's dialogue is way off from "proper" English spellings; from what one can derive from the pronunciations she's speaking a southern/midwestern US accent. Also she says stuff like "ya city-slicker".

As I read more yuri doujins, I started picking up on which variation of English scanlators use in their translations; I can usually at least tell whether or not the scanlator is from the US or outside it. When I started reading A Room for Two I noticed GiB was using non-US English, and sure enough the scanlators are Australian.

Doki always use mum instead of mom as well.

I always associated "mum" with the UK; I didn't know it's also used in Australia until I started reading Shimapanda's and Raizoo's stuff.

Australia, NZ, NI. Basically anywhere the British went.

The art really looked like Heebee's to me, but I'm glad to see Tamamusi getting some proper work. And it's good too!

How can Kase possibly be so sweet and innocent and yet so hawt and thirsty? :3

And yet this is why I love the series, because as a rule high schoolers are all horny idiots.

Eh, not necessarily. Though I suppose Yamada balances her out.

Aussie accents are cute, do it

BTW, the saddest part about the translation is that you all miss out on how awesome Nanami's "home" accent is. She speaks in a really really strong regional accent when she's not at work, and it's fantastic.

edit: no slight against the TLers meant here either! It's just not possible to translate that!

I wanted to dial the southern accent up even more but korewa wouldn't let me :(

Doooooo iiiiiiit.

Full disclosure: lesbian girls with southern accents is my fetish.

Don’t, accents in text are unbearable. Though I found Shizuru’s southern accent in the Hime anime irritating as well.

That's a general rule for writing prose in English. If you're going to do an accent on a character who's actually meant to have their dialogue read, keep it really light and use it sparingly. It's okay in the case of the father from Flying Witch since you don't actually need to understand what he says because the characters interpret for you. But otherwise, text accents just annoy most of your readers.

Personally I find defaulting to Southern US English to be kind of overdone anyway. Wasn't there one recently that had more of a Scots accent? That was at least refreshing.

I don't really get its relative prevalence for localising 'fancy' accents. I'd be more inclined to think of an old-money east coast accent as being its relative. I suppose that's just my thinking as a foreigner though, I dunno what Americans think of.

I thought maybe people were reading into things, but I think her aunt really did give her the bad touch. Damn.

"Kill all hu-mans" is sounding more sensible by the day.

Why hu-mans with the hyphen?

Also how does "killing all X" ever sound even remotely sensible?
I get that it isn't serious but the fact that just because a person's opinion is invalid or toxic in your eyes you would wish death upon them makes you just as toxic, if not more.

I’m reasonably certain it’s a reference to something.

What is rape? 20 Aug 07:19
joined Oct 12, 2013

Has anyone considered implementing a dubious consent tag? It's a seriously outdated label and in no way do I endorse the term b/c its basically the same as rape, but for those that get bothered by the use of a rape tag for non-traumatic scenarios it might be more implementable?

Yea dubious consent is a tag used as warning for a couple fanfiction websites and is more serious than "kinda rapey." It is supposed to be a warning afterall.

It really depends on the author, it can run the gamut from "never explicitly said yes, but expressed consent in every other possible manner" to "never explicitly said no, but didn't really want it, til they came".
