There was a 2 year time skip in chapter 4 of Tsumugi, maybe it's during that time that Kidaha gives Yuuri and Fana the necklaces, the events of the original Earth Girls happen, and they give the necklaces back. In fact that's the only possible explanation so I'm going with it. It also partially validates Mira's sketchy chronology comment: the last part of chapter 4 takes place 2 years after the original installment.
That makes sense. And Kidaha has an injured leg at the end of Chapter 4, the same as she has in the Chapter 7 of the original volume. So the timeline would go like:
1) Tsumugi up to Chapter 4 p95
2) Earth Girls Chapters 1-3 (these take place during the 2 year time skip between p95 and p96)
If you check the timeline of the main Earth Girls (which is naturally set after the Tsumugi prequel sequel), you'll find that in one of the extra pages, Yuuri and Fana are both seen wearing a Kidaha wife necklace. So after the Tsumugi timeline, just like the threesome that starts at the end of Tsumugi Ch 4, apparently they become a triad again.
That hand that opens the door is all bandaged up in the same way as Shio's brother's...but I'm not sure how he'd have gotten inside, how a fairly young boy would impersonate an old woman, or how he'd know that Sato used to live with her aunt.
I appreciate that this is one of those rare futa doujins where the plot isn't basically "Holy fuck, dicks are AMAZING!" But on the other hand the presence of the dick is a bit baffling as there's no real reason for Rin to have one in the first place. You could do the exact same scene without it, and nobody would realize. So...really, why bother?
Why does futa get scrutinized so heavily compared to other kinks, geez. You barely ever see comments like this on basically any other tag, yet every futa doujin I click on will have at least a couple of people asking why it wasn't just 'regular yuri' or whatever.
It might be a bit shocking to people on here, but there are authors who like to draw futa - some prefer to draw it over vanilla yuri or het, some just like to draw it alongside their other works. So they do. it's literally that simple. They liked the idea of a futa story with Maki and Rin (not a yuri one or a genderbent one or anything like that) so they drew it.
And people saying "hurr the author only picked rin cuz she looks like a guy!" are really reaching hard for something to criticize. Not only has Bocha drawn vanilla MakiRin before (so it's obvious they're just a fan of the pairing in general), but there's plenty of futa Love Live doujins about basically every girl and pairing, yet as soon as it's the tomboy it's suddenly a grave sin? (lol who am I kidding, futa itself is a grave sin to a lot of the more fanatical yuri fans anyway)
Like, just stop. It's a kink. It's a pretty damn popular kink in ero doujins. There's likely no deeper meaning to any of this besides the author finding a futa ver. of this particular pairing hot.
Also sorry if this got a bit heated, it's just been bubbling up for a while since it seems there's the same damn comments and criticisms (or outright bashing) on every futa piece -_-
So Meiko's domineering and controlling personality is just a front that she's using to hide away - her real personality is probably the same as it was pre-assault.
I'm guessing Reo seeing Meiko crying made her realise that being her 'slave' and obeying her every whim wasn't actually helping Meiko at all on an emotional/mental level, and was actually pretty self-destructive for both of them.
I don't know how many chapters this story has or if it's still being written or whatever. If it's short then Meiko will probably have a quick reality check. If it's longer then we'll probably get some more drama, maybe Meiko dating someone so she can throw it in Reo's face in a "They're a better friend to me than you ever were" guilt-tripping kind of way.
I always enjoy this kind of story. I know Meiko is manipulative and really laying on the emotional abuse, but sometimes I get bored of how sugary-sweet and innocent so many characters are in yuri works.
Sometimes I just want to root for a 'bad girl' without them being clearly overshadowed by the couple that's 'meant' to win out in the end.
Eh, if I read this without knowing the author has done a lot of rape doujins of these two, I'd have just assumed they had a (consensual) domme-sub & pet-play relationship going on. p16 was the only real 'rapey' page honestly.
