Kinda confused and unsatisfied with the ending, but it was a great manga. I mean I still don't understand why Ice had to commit fucking suicide essentially, and doesn't get to come back. And what's Meme? What happened to X, did she get disintegrated by the power of yuri and die?
What I understood is that yes, X died but her "essence" got reincarnated as Meme, the little girl at the end and Hayate and Honey are making sure she doesn't go off the rails this time.
Of course, I have no idea why only X got reincarnated but Coll Down didn't.
It really shows that sometime had to cut the story short because that was very underwhelming. After all the insanity from the previous chapter, the story ends with a Friendship Talk no Jutsu was a letdown. I do appreciate the happy ending but I dunno, it feels like it was just going through the motions. XX reincarnation being called Meme does make for some unintentional hilarity though.
First, than anything, thank you so much to Dalphie for translating the entire series, it was a fantastic read, and age gap yuri is not that common so I really appreciate it.
That said, I feel the ending was a bit underwhelming and rushed. I think that sato had more planned for Madoromi and the sensei after being brought into the spotlight in the previous chapter. The jump to Kaori and Misumi living together and getting married/proposed is too abrupt if really heartwarming. I would've liked to see more of them dating and living as a couple.
The funny thing is, mei already went through the whole "learning to be a good girlfriend" arc in citrus heck even if the conclusion wasn't the best it was a solid arc nonetheless
And after watching mei steping out of her comfort zone triying to be yuzu s ideal partner in citrus, is such a let down watching yuzu spending her birthday by herself despite mei being in the same room, the story is going circles and now is detracting from the main plot
Mei was going through the motions in citrus so no, she wasn't really a good girlfriend there. It was only until the end that she stopped following others and started taking the initiative for herself, that is what plus is expanding upon.
Citrus+ is filling the blanks between Mei breaking her engagement with the restaurant owner and her wedding with Yuzu. And the main focus has been on Mei learning how to be a good girlfriend with the occasional side plots focused on those who were present at the wedding. Personally, I'm not surprised we're getting an arc focused on Manami and Kana since they were quite homophobic the last time we saw them, and then they are at the wedding without making a fuss. Hell, they might even end up together or at the very least be open to the idea of dating a woman if Kana's reaction to Mitsuko is an indication. So there is potential for significant character growth for them.
Is going to be hilarious if after Yuzu finally manages the courage to come out to them, it turns out they're also closeted lesbians and all the guy chasing was just a means of coping.
I'm starting to think that someone tells Sabu about what is discussed here since now we have a canon Meibot but really, I just can't understand the complaints about Mei lacing a character or failing to show her love for Yuzu when she has been the most proactive through this series.
Kasumi's parents are the most understanding parents that I've seen, they get dropped a bombshell like that and after some time off they're able to accept it. Ai's gamble paid off big time. It was also oddly heartwarming to see Kasumi and Ai bicker like that about their relationship.
That said, I can see equally likely for the series to either come to an end already or get a time-skip. Either way, it has been a very enjoyable ride.
Pretty interesting that Noel went out of her way to buy a limited edition of expensive sound equipment made to commemorate pride month that will have its proceedings donated to the cause, that she is aware of the LGBT movement and that she admits it applies to NoeFure.
Given the way the story is going, I'm guessing there are only two or three more chapters left before it comes to an end. This series is so good that is hard to believe is just twenty-something chapters long. If it does end soon, I hope we get either a sequel or the odd short comic showing all the characters just being gay and having fun together.
