I'm honestly glad this isn't yuri, there's enough creepy step-sister stuff on the internet already.

what's wrong with that kind of step-sister yuri ? They only met what ? for a year ? They didn't grow up together, they don't share the same blood, if they met by chance and not through their parents marriage, them becoming a couple wouldn't be an issue, so why would it be just because their parents happened to marry ?

I can understand if their parents got married while they were still very little and they grew up together as sisters, but here, it's not the case.

more twincest ! Yay !
"I don't know how to start a kiss" facepalms I always finds these kind of lines stupid. It's not rocket science to dock two pair of lips together. -.-

that controversy was just one guy making a stupid comment about how "you can't shoot properly with one hand", probably trying to pass himself as some gun expert. Having done competitive shooting in my youth, not only you can shoot like that (it's 22LR, the recoil is low), but as it was mentioned, you HAVE to. Technically, it's not so much as "put your hand in a pocket", but "hold the gun with one hand". Placing your hand in a pocket or belt is just to fix it in position in a way that won't tire you out and increase stability, so it's very common to do so.

Seriously, the old "slip on nothing to fall into a kiss" ? :/ That manga is amusing as it is, no need to fall on these kind of old tricks...

Well, I was "supposed" to do 250 and yeah, a good portion of these were only minor adjustement, so could do them in under a minute. Some other, though were badly done from the start (the pics were made by very cheap subcontractors who kept making stupid mistakes, like putting graphics and texts in areas that were non-printable), which required me, in some case, to redo the whole thing. Add to this I was given other tasks on top of that (some I actually refused, like we were at some point asked to do janitorial works, cleaning the whole place, 'cause the boss wouldn't hire janitors), working on an underpowered pc for that kind of job... It would have been impossible to do this amount of work without doing overtime every single day. But as I was paid minimal wages and the boss wouldn't pay overtime because, and I quote "you're not under obligation to do overtime, so I'm not under obligation to pay it", I pretty much went "okay, then, I'm not doing any unpaid overtime as you just said I was not obliged to do them". Well, let's just say that job was very stressful and confrontational and I was glad when it ended... Since then, one of my main concern when I applied to jobs were that the overall atmosphere were decent enough and non-toxic.

But yeah, overall, a lot of jobs tied to arts are rather shitty when it comes to work environment. The most annoying and frequent thing I heard when negotiating wages were "oh, but it's your passion, you should be happy to get the job at all, not ask for any decent wage". Dude, it might be a "passion", I still have rent and stuff to pay. Xx

I guess it all depends on the quality of work required. Some of the touch up can be done real quick with some tools, like erasing a bit of areola, or "whiting" an area (assuming by that, they do ask to simply put a white circle/square on the ko part), but yeah, toning down nipples or slimming down a model might require more work (though it also depends on several factors).

Having worked as a graphist myself in printing industry, this gives me flashback of one of my worst job where I was required to make adjustements for cards and expected to do nearly 250 a day. Thankfully, a good chunck of that was very minor stuff and in the end, only a bit over half actually require some "real" work, but yeah, you have do dedicate your whole day to that and learn to streamline with tools as much as you can, so you can do a job in just a few minutes. But yeah, sometimes, a work is so botched up to begin with you simply can't do it fast, or it'll come back to you later with a revenge.

The number of work and the deadline is still heavy, especially for a newcomer who they probably don't really know the level of skill, but at this point, it's obvious it's intended to be an absurdly demanding job.

I'm loving this way too much, if that's even possible.

well, game is about "containing" monsters and others anomalies and interact with them to generate power. (inevitably) mess it up and your workers goes insane while the creature rampages, killing each other or themselves.

So yeah, it's pretty dark :p

The thing is, sometimes you need to be on the nose so your point will get through to people. Being subtle is fine and all, but not only it can go over some people's head, but others will make a point to ignore the subtlety if the message carried goes against what they want/value.

Just take yuri. When writing such a story in a subtle way, a lot of people will ignore all the hints to assure you that "nope, they're obviously just friends". While an actual kiss will makes it harder to argue against (and yet, some might still find ways to rationalize it to fit their conceptions).

Yes, this is a caricature, overly exagerated, but the underlying point is valid. Women, especially in japan, are still often considered as just there to get married, have kids, then take care of them while the husband go earn money to provide for the whole family. Carrierist women in Japan are too often frowned upon. It's slightly better in western countries, but frankly, there are still ways to go. And the more women tries to fend for themselves, the more they tend to be pushed back.

In all time, satire has been a way to bring to light painful truth that a lot of people would rather see kept to the shadow. To me, it feels that this manga is kinda the same. You have to take it with a grain of salt, as it's exagerated, which is what caricature is, but that doesn't mean the underlying point is moot.

I'm enjoying this manga, but the translation here feels a bit too wacky. Makes it hard to take it as a serious one, feels like the translator went "meh, have to do this, don't really wanna, let's go wonkers cause I don't care". :/

You mean like Saki ? Bunch of girls going pantyless and even with barely covering clothes, but nobody seems to be noticing. XD

Kishi finally snapped after all the SFW in Virgin's Empire.

My thoughts exactly, been feeling like virgin's empire gone pretty tame compared to earlier chapter, so when I bumped into that one, I was like "wow, he got all that pented up, uh." XD

one of the most unsatisfying ending ever, in my opinion... I mean, the situation here is pretty much exactly the same as how it was from the begining of the book. The most "important" change in their lives is that the mom went back to writing doujins, it's not even about the sisters. For these two, the only "big" change is that the big sis got a part time job, yay... (and that's assuming she did get it back).

Their relationship is pretty much exactly the same.

also, wasn't this a webcomic at first ? Hope the author keep the story going there and kinda show that you better stay away from the allure of being published :x
