To say nothing of his looks.
Btw I hadn't noticed before how Mitsuki got her whole fashion sense from her uncle, down to the nails painted black.

I'd say, it's the other way around - the uncle copycatting Mitsuki as her approach with black nails brought cute girls into the shop, lol. I mean, he never wore it black before this chapter.

In reality though, not gonna be surprised if this is but the author's way of "bugfixing" that nails painting are a girls' only thing, as in, hey look, actual guys of the culture do it too, so it's not like Aya fell for feminine traits of her Onii-san. Not that it addresses the elephant in the room, which is the voice of a 17-year-old. But at this point, I don't think I want to care about any of that as for me personally the momentum of the story is somehow lost.

uh well it's kinda established mitsuki is goth and goth guys paint their nails black all the time. i think it's mitsuki who picked up everything from her uncle. she seems to be really close to him and probably looks up to him a lot

also, i wanna see smashing pumpkins and alice in chains show up!

Goth girl can easily pass off as her five o’clock shadowed uncle with a black permanent marker instead of girly makeup.

I’m not up on fashion so can someone tell me: Is Gothic a subset of grunge or is grunge a subset of gothic fashion?

Without being able to see the color of her clothes, I don't think we can say she's a goth. I think rock girl fits better.

I would say she is a rocker at least but probably more of a metalhead based of off the black widow album and how heavy it is

they say at the beginning that the girl...mitsuki? the clerk, dresses all in black. so with the black nails pretty sure she likes goth

and blows my mind people are starting to not know about/haven't heard foo fighters or nirvana. they were both so huge, when i was younger you'd be weird for NOT having heard at least one of their songs lol. and this is not the first manga where highschoolers like this kind of music from america. beck was ALL about that vibe lol. if someone discovers the type of music nirvana and foo fighters fall under, there's no question they'd eventually run into those bands.

that´s sperm donation thing disturbing me

Well, that's how it works. Although I would have personally not added the panel saying that they got the sperm and just gone straight to their daughter already being born.

You want the science babies tag? Cause that's how you get the science babies tag.

LMAO. and it being from her brother means technically it's sorta her dna shared with mari's lol. realistically it's closest anyone can get to for the time being.

it would actually be more interesting if we end with shion becoming her gf and toribami staying her partner, though i fear shion sees kiki how she wants to see her, and now how she really is. a male type figure. which really isn't good for either of them because it's really not who kiki wants to be

well that was a fun story, I really liked it. The way it was told by looping back and forth was also really interesting to me.
I especially liked seeing how the way they showed their affection to each other and internalized it essentially flipped over the years. With Kanoko being openly in love with Shiori when they were small, growing up to find her that her love wasn't always recognised as such by society and thus shutting herself off. And Shiori who struggled giving a name to her feelings and allowing herself to be in love with Kanoko, growing up to being openly in love with Kanoko no longer caring about it anymore.
It's also kind of interesting to consider that Shiori mostly had to deal with accepting that she was in love with Kanoko, overcoming internalised homophobia while Kanoko had to overcome the stigma of being in love with another woman from outside sources. With their struggles to allow themselves to be in love with each other essentially mirroring both in time and the struggles themselves (one being internal, and the other being external)
All in all a great story that I certainly have to reread soon now that it's all here.

this is a really great take from it, and well done by the author. i really like how they did this. great story, i loved these characters :)

edit: and re-reading it i still really don't know how to interpret what happened with her scar. i think the most likelihood would be suicide by handing, but i don't really get how she'd get the wound on her shoulder from that.

not the best writing, but i felt entertained so job accomplished. hope to see situations that come up in future feel a little less contrived now that they are together and as the author gains more experience. and i did learn something. i did not know tangerines were an analogy for yuri lol. what a bizarre thing to be linked to lesbian stories lol though i'm sure there's sound reasoning i don't know behind it XD

Nanase is pretty unfair imo. she should not have started a relationship she knew she wouldn't have much time for, especially if she knew she wanted to keep it secret, making it even harder to spend time together as a couple. and it's not even just her level of business, but how INVOLVED she is in her sport, where she thinks of very little else, including her gf apparently. i feel very little sympathy for her. maybe we'd be more on her side if we saw them leading up to going out and what brought them together.

if there's lots of chapters ahead still, maybe their break up will only be temporary. like the author trying to lul us with see i knew its! would honestly make them getting back together feel special.

Vtubers are one of those things that's still a big mystery to me. I honestly feel like a complete boomer because I don't understand who they are, what they are doing, or why they suddenly became so popular.

Ngl, I don't think crossdressers typically have issues getting it up with their girlfriend >_> Like... I dunno, the writing Ikeda Takashi is doing with Kita versus the crossdressing boy in Sasameki Koto is incredibly night and day. He's not afraid of drawing a guy character happily crossdressing lmao, hell that character even ended just having a fashion line for crossdressing boys lmao. Compared that to Kita, like Kita's definitely a bit more wrought with some much more clear gender feelings, they don't just wanna wear skirts, they wanna pass. A good chunk of Kita's interactions are literally 'Oh they really aren't quite like their boy peers', 'Seeing their ex as a woman isn't the issue it's...', and the last chapter really feeling like friction Kita is having with their younger sister feminine stuff their sister gets eager to do and they can't Quite do.

Like Kita could just be a crossdresser, but it really doesn't feel like that imho.

i agree i don't get the feeling that it's just crossdressing. i think the kid is cute, i don't understand how there's such mean backlash for kita. btw i just wanna say i hate wanko's name lol, it sounds like a dog.

edit: I (...don't...) recommend looking up a manga named Cocoon. It's a historically informed story about a class of schoolgirls during the Battle of Okinawa IIRC, slightly yuri and really fucking depressing.

Sounds up my alley, thanks for the (non?) recommendation

grave of the fireflies is absolutely heartbreaking and beautiful. it was such a huge thing when i was younger that i forget that not everyone knows of it now. it's like schindler's list, an absolute must see for every single person. it's important to see these movies so we don't make the same mistakes, and help us grow to be better people.

Koreans manwhas are also feel to the brim with dramas and dramas. I kinda dislike the genre for that.

Yeah, I hate how much drama korean manhwas have. Every single GL manhwa I have read is way too angsty for my liking.

I read a lot of angsty manga, but I find manhwa just never let up. They can still be enjoyable, though, but I never really seek them out. It is nice that they focus more on adult life than High Schoolers.

We gonna pretend like angst/drama isn’t in most love stories. Besides there are plenty of fluff very cosy manwhas too

There's such a thing as too much angst. All of the manhwas I've read, most of them recommended to me, have been way too angsty for my liking.

It's all about cheating, homophobia or love triangles.

i've found plenty that aren't. though yes, they all still have some kind of drama lol. i've been quite enjoying manwhas myself. maybe they are more dramatic because they are often based more around adults, and their problems are usually much more serious than amg i'm late for school!! the person i like isn't texting me back!!

this one was gorgeous btw damn!

Got people up in here talkin about failed sex ed or rapey undertones and I'm just here like-

"Lol this bitch dumb lmao"

People can be this ignorant, regardless of education. Just go to r/storiesaboutkevin. And I don't think tall girl is taking advantage of her at all, thought it was obvious they were together from that "this is fine because we've done this a lot" line, she's just furthering their relationship as far as I sees it.

lmao yea how is this rapey. is she saying no? does being ignorant mean no one is allowed to try anything sexual ever if they are of a legal age? just cause she doesn't know anything means she's automatically being taken advantage of? that's just silly. ignorant people get introduced to it somehow lol. how do you think you were born? lmao jk.

Because it matches the setting??? They're in a southern island of Japan. Asian people, including Japanese people, can vary skin tone extremely heavily based on sun exposure. There's also genetics at play as the southern islanders have a lot of Ryukyu blood in them which results in naturally darker skin tone even when not tanned. It's used to indicate whether someone is "country girl" or "city girl" as well in Japanese fiction.

Bitch i ain't complaining about that, It's just really rare to see dark skinned characters in Japanese media, and when it's done, it usually turns out to be just a tan girl, it's just too much of a common occurrence, that's what makes me lose my shit, not whether it makes sense story wise or whatever the fuck u sayin

lmao i love it.

and yes now let's all suffer in peace as we wait for an even shorter chapter lol

Was the idea that these two couldn't define their relationship, or declined to do so, ever brought up before the extra chapter? The narration in the extra chapter feels kind weird, not because I believe that there has to be a clear line between platonic and romantic relationships, but because it sounds like the narrator doesn't know that LGBT people exist

no in an earlier chapter ito asks sumika what she meant when she said she liked her and sumika was like, does it have to be defined?

2 people. mutually and monogamously in love. kissing and apparently doin' the do on the regs. living with each other for years. huh... what kind of relationship could they possibly have? how curious... OH, oh, oh, I know! figured it out, guys.

they're just really good friends

LMAO i was thinking same thing at end lmao so stupid

"Publish and be damned!"

Not really replying to this comment specifically, just wanted to mention that I have been following Yuri stories for about 10, maybe 13 years at least at this point. There was a time, when I used to lurk all the comment sections and Yuri forums (whatever that even was, haha). Back then, it seemed like there wasn't any yuri manga for which The Purple Library Guy hadn't commented or participated in the discussion in some sort of meaningful, insightful manner. You were everywhere! Nowadays, I usually just read the stories and rarely venture to comment sections (I don't have nearly as much time as I used to, sadly). For whatever reason I decided to check this one and I was pleasantly surprised to see the same avatar and username I remember from like 10 years ago. Sounds silly but it brought back a bunch of memories of that time. As far as I am concerned, you sir, are as much a staple of the genre as the yuri itself, and would like to thank you for some of the insight and recommendations that my younger self undoubtedly got from you.

you know what's funny? i actually used to see his posts on manga fox waaaaaaay back in the day when that was the first online manga reader i came across. then i found here and later saw a post of his and was like wow small world XD he had the same name and avatar pic there too! lol

Retired idol and mangaka is probably the two most popular statuses for manga characters lol

Still enjoyed this one a lot

you know what would be a cool job and would make an interesting manga, a yuri with a firefighter lol. i feel like there's so much potential for stories based solely on their occupation alone. so tired of idols/ol's/and manga related jobs
