I don't think this is quite as dark or twisted as some people are making it out to be. They definitely play it off as bullying in front of others, but I don't think either character actually takes it that way at all.
Like the flower thing would be some pretty major bullying, but the dark hairded girl takes it as being given flowers, going so far as to keeping and taking care of them.
How do you cut your hand more than once in your life? I just can't believe someone is that clumsy. After the first cut you would naturally become more careful and learn how to hold the knife right.
But then we couldn't have the "clumsy, but a hard worker" cliche I guess. lol
(or get one of those newfangled state of the art peelers...)
I still cut myself while cooking, sometimes more than one, I'm not saying it's normal, it's because I'm really stupid... :(
Don't get down on yourself like that. People have a wide variety of levels of motor skills, and a lot of people are careless because of other conditions like ADHD. I don't know what your situation is, but just because you're careless or clumsy while cooking doesn't mean you're stupid.
Thank you for your kind words.
Here is some advice from and ADHD guy who has shaky hands.
1.go slow there's no need to rush.
2.try and start with big produce it's safer to cut as practice.
3. Before you cut check your hand placement.
4. The knife is sharp it can do the work of you let it. Slow back and forth movements with light pressure is all you need.
5. Cut cold it makes things a bit easier.
6. Dip you knife in a bowl of water it will make certain cuts butter smooth.
7. Kitchen shears are great for beginners and good ones can be cheaper then knives.
Now I still cut myslef from time to time literally every person that cooks does. It just comes with the territory.
Two additional tips (from someone else with ADD):
When was the last time you ate or slept? When my hands are less steady than I'd like, I can normally point to one of those two things as the culprit. A quick snack and dong something else with your hands for a bit might help.
Make sure the knife actually is sharp; the sharper the better. It might seem paradoxical, but a dull blade (even if it can still cut) is WAY more likely to injure you and it'll just be a pain to work with. If you're going to start cooking more, it's probably a good idea to pick up a decent or good knife sharpener and get in the habit of keeping a good edge on your knives. (Also, as a heads up, if you bought a knife set and it came with a metal rod on a handle, it's likely meant for honing knives, not sharpening them, and trying to use it to sharpen your knives will cause problems.)
Oh wow. The art on this awesome.The addition of a single color really adds a lot to it and the occasional small highlights are nice. Does anyone know of any other manga that do something similar?
I've always wondered why manga's almost always done in black and white. I remember getting quite annoyed with Samurai Kyo because a major point was that the main character's eyes would turn red when he switched personalities, in a black and white medium. If they'd done something like this they could have used red to emphasize the background or certain objects and had it leak into his eyes when appropriate.
I suppose it wasn't her real hair colour? If she was telling the truth and they insisted it be dyed just so she fit in, they could all go die in fire for all I'd care. She shouldn't need to blend in and pretend - but Like I said she was probably lying.
Welcome to fucking Japan.
Yeah, this actually happened somewhat recently. A student with blonde hair was told to dye it black even though it was her natural color. I don't remember for sure what the outcome of that story was but I think she was allowed to keep her natural hair color in the end.
Yeah reading it again, it's obvious that Nagi is in love with Yuu cause she realizes things that are hard to know if you aren't paying proper attention to her... Like how she was in love with Tamaki, how much make up she uses, being worried about her, etc...
Also, the art is like in Ao Haru Ride
Didn't a bunch of other girls comment on the exact same things, like it was common knowledge?
