^Yeah but its telling a story it isnt just art. The story has to be consistant to its reality and make sense if we are to take it as more than nonsensical rubbish.

Realism isnt optional in writing unless you establish why it doesnt have to be, and even then it has to stick to its established rules- and the explanation needs to make sense. We have nothing to go on in regards to how 2 different realities are co-habiting space.

I have no issue with the idea- as long as we get some explanation that matches what we are being told.

Oh brother, this website really is a literary brain trust

well they have a point. though since this is just the first chapter i'd give it a few more to wait for an explanation before nit picking personally. to some people this kind of thing matter though. the medium allows me to take it less seriously. if it was a book i'd be just as concerned over these points. for w/e reason i must not expect as much out of a manga story than one from a book.

Low-key headcanon for this is they're both lying about having partners and are just too dumb to admit they love one another without trying to goad the other on.

i'm gonna believe that to not feel bad about the cheating

wait wait wait....WHAT IF...the WHOLE thing was RP, and they are actually dating each other already?? i mean, why would she have the sleep mask with her after all?? and they both admitted to wanting to try it so it's something they already talked about and decided to do...

(sorry been a while since i played it so forgot names XD)

This manga gives me more stress than Junji freaking Ito, and I love it. Kato's uncannily good at creating this cozy, supportive wholesome atmosphere and then just brutally flipping it with a single insensitive word or phrase. It really goes to show the fragility of whatever peaceful moments you can find while living in ways that society considers abnormal. The way the natural, easy flow of text on this page leads into the dark, imposing splash-dialogue on this page? Legitimate horror manga technique, especially with how massive and cruel the Dad seems in Mogumo's eyes. You can really tell that the home is this dark, claustrophobic, place that turns into a hall of nightmares for them when wrong pronouns and impossible standards start getting thrown around.

I admire the story's decision to go with the reconciliation route, though it doesn't seem like it'll be easy. The father's one tough bigot to crack, and many stories, particularly Western ones, would just have Mogumo cutting free and embracing their found family instead. But the desire to be accepted by families and mend bridges broken by misunderstandings is a huge part of the the queer experience- even if you've had a shitty childhood, it's quite hard to cut yourself off from your parents entirely, especially if you've got siblings that rely on you. It's an exacting, difficult position, and even if Mogumo gets accepted, they'll still have to deal with a very stressful environment, because the scars of a terrible childhood don't fade all that easily, and the road to recovery is always tough. But for that reason, I feel like this speech might actually work out, seeing as it isn't a grand solution, but simply a pathway to new experiences, which would let Kato advance the greater plot and engage with more themes. We're definitely not getting a tragic ending here, but there's still quite a few more mountains left to scale.

oh man i was thinking the same thing. that was done really well!

bring it up with the author

Raw: まあ、あの堅っ苦しいジャケット着なくて済むし~

Hmm. I wonder if "jacket" is one of those words that doesn't mean what people think it does, like "jersey"? (Although I can't actually find any evidence for that.) Or maybe it's Noyama who doesn't know what it means...?

that or maybe that's just what japense people call those types of shirts

It's neat to see a love story with an asexual character in it. It's quite the rarity. This manga was comfy and fun, and I'm going to miss it.

yea awesome they kept it that way!! i really enjoyed what's her name in hourou musuko being asexual for like the first halfish of the series then they went and made her super lame and changed it. i really lost interest in that series after they did that. so many times authors just change it, and never go with it to the end. not as romantic to them i guess? though this was so cute and romantic imo, the efforts she went through to try and connect.

watch out! she's a scaaary lesbian!! you probably don't want to be near her anymore, right?

lol right? and she of course is just asking this out of the goodness of her heart, absolutely no ulterior motive ;)

I feel like Miko is gonna play a bigger role later on in the series because I couldn't help but notice her bead bracelet. Idk maybe this is a reach but I think they hold some sort of significance especially since they were highlighted in their own panel. I don't think that's a coincidence and she's probably protecting MC in some way? Maybe she's some sort of a hunter?

But the speculations that Miko could actually be another monster herself would be interesting too lol

that could have been more the author highlighting the PDA handholding

yea i really don't get the vibe from this that things will just continue on with hinaki ripening and shiori eating her. something is going to happen, and there will be some kind of turning point. one thing too that i haven't seen mentioned is the fact that shiori said she had been LOOKING for hinako. so she had to have known about her from somewhere/somehow

She should have navigated it more diplomatically. Accept their apology on the surface and to their faces but pull back from the friendships. Dodge questions, don't commit to any events in the future, and otherwise avoid them. If they ask if anything is wrong, insist everything is fine and make up an excuse.

That's what I would do (and did).

idk i get the feeling it wouldn't have been so easy with that group. they seemed extremely pushy, and would ignore the hint, and pester, and badger, and not let up unless you give them a clear fuck off.

My personal headcanon is that the nurse is just Kei from the future, travelling back in time to get a break from all the disasterbians, only to find that a new one has attached itself to her.

Or isn't it simply her big sister ?

damn i didnt noticed that, maybe bc of the hairstyle... is it really her?

no it's not, nurse doesn't have bangs
