Yatsude, you beautiful tropical fish. You’re smart as a whip and you’re cool under pressure.

Heaens, why am I still here? I'll pretend I didn't read this.

I'd recommend you do a bit of research about how the free speech doesn't mean much without the right to offend.

Excuse me? What part of "I don't read" you didn't understand? Also, I've sold many of comics I owned because they depicted pedophilia in a way or another, even though it wasn't the main focus.

You don't read them because it contributes to the problem but would do otherwise? Selling your comics instead of disposing of them doesn't contribute to the problem? It is a reduction to absurdity fallacy. Pretty much what you do.

Okay, I read wrong and the person didn't call me "Tippers." Whoops, my bad.

Whatever is wrong with that? Aren't you all in for sexual freedom?

I'm not dumb. Or perhaps am I? Because I don't know why am I still here trying to argue with people who can't accept different points of view. I'm done here, peace out. ✌

Sorry sweet but the one not accepting other points of view is you.

Also, pedophilia is one of the most searched tags on porn websistes, especially here in Brazil.

As a bi woman myself, and friend of trans and gay people, I can tell how much fiction has offended me and my friends for a couple times. There is a particular BL manga that kind of mock transwomen, for exemple.

What's wrong with mocking any collective? If it is wrong for yours it would be wrong for all the others and everyone would lose that way. I'd recommend a treatment for your severe case of thin skin.

Oh, was it? That's funny, because I'm pretty sure when you consume this kind of works, you're contributing to the problem itselfーthat's why I don't read any kind of loli and shota worksー, but then again, I pulled this out of my ass. Please educate me, for I am wrong.

So you'd buy them if they didn't contribute to the problem? Are you a potential pedo? Don't you see how twisted this kind of argumentation is?

I'm pretty stable, thank you very much. And no need to call me names, because I'm not being unpolite here.

You are being fallacious and dishonest with your arguments and so far no one called you names.

Ok, so do you want some taste of reality?
Give them the dick and they will forgot they are lesbians, and that's a Fact, your Yuri fantasy is over!

Is there an option for regular users to block other regular users on this forum? Not like bans or post deletions, but just so we wouldn't see this cancer on an individual basis

You'd need something similar to a greasemonkey script.

I see a lot of free spirits around here. Sex is pretty damn close to the most intimate interaction you can have with someone else. Sex is a pretty big deal or otherwise it wouldn't be paid for and rape wouldn't be such an atrocious thing.

"It's just sex" looks like an apology.

What the fuck is up with all this prostitution lately. Is this yuri's NTR or something? I know, next should be prostitution + NTR. I bet Kodama Naoko is working on it already.

Why are beautician, teacher and OL the only jobs you’re allowed to have in shoujo manga?

You forgot failed manga artist / novel author.

Mari from Bright and Cheerful Amnesia is some kind of technician that knows how to weld.
Shimizu from Still Sick is a lead technical engineer.
The Imaris from Lonely Wolf, Lonely Sheep end up as blue collar workers.

I've been asking for this to be uploaded here for nearly a year. It honestly baffles me why the bureaucracy didn't pick it until now.

And just so you know there are two forum threads for this series.

This is getting an official English release btw (scanlation will, of course, continue regardless)

All this manga is really doing a number in my balance.

Noooo i cant believe its going to end!! 。・゚゚・(>д<)・゚゚・。
i tried buying both volumes but the shipping fee is like, five times the price of the manga so...
f*ck u amazon:'(

The only reason I am buying them is because they are fairly cheap.

I tried ordering a bunch of Virgin's Empire volumes from Japan several times and while the are really cheap on origin, they end up as expensive as translated ones and I don't have the will to learn Japanese.

Still wish the format from the translated version of Otoyomegatari was the norm. These things are so tiny.

Maybe start reading het stories if everyone is gay bothers you.

There is honestly so much wrong with these couple sentences I don't even know where to start.

I read all kinds of manga. I come here for the yuri but I don't mind having the story revolve around something else while staying on the genre. In fact my favorite yuri setup is the protagonist just happening to be a lesbian (Avatar: The Legend of Korra, Murcielago, etc). I am honestly fucking sick of the generic schoolgirl setup. The yuri genre is absolutely abysmal most of the time for the exploitation of the shittiest tropes.

That's the whole point of fantasy and stories, it's about escapism, not smacking reality into the reader's face.

So the whole yuri thing is about feel good stories and escapism? My fucking god... You create whatever content for a given media because you feel like there is a story worth telling and stuff just happens. If you tailor the story around a setup and an outcome you are limiting yourself and you need godlike storytelling skills to pull it off.

And ok, have a het couple if you want it so much, just don't play along with the readers by making them ship the yuri pairing.

My best guess is that potential readers are far more tolerant than you and don't move in absolutes and the black or white specter. This manga was axed because it was dragging already, not because it had het in it.

Isn't Tadokoro axed already?

Uh wait...for real??? Where’d you see that?

Just guessing, the last release was 8 months ago.

I don't really care about het stories because it honestly brings a bit of a sense of reality to yuri mangas. Actually the "everyone, even the fridge, is gay" are the ones putting me off.

What I do understand is that these authors don't have the slightest passion about their work and will gladly drag it around until they are axed and forced to give it a crappy ending. They have to make a living out of it and one more chapter is one more month paying for your living expenses so you don't really have an ending planned or anything. It is not exclusive to the yuri genre, just more prevalent. That's why I prefer oneshots wrapping it up nicely (and maybe a followup or something) and leaving you wishing for more than these with rushed and crappy endings.

This manga wasn't even any good and it wasn't for the het.

Yuri mangas that last for a very long time are extremely rare and are usually extremely good. Most of the ones trying to pull an extended run end up getting axed. The good ones are in the ~5 to ~20 chapters range.

Isn't Tadokoro axed already?

Honoka is the best girl by a landslide.

Ponytail Honoka is a deity and I will build a shrine to worship her.

Woah! What a whole lot of nothing!

Are we trying a new setting between subtext and nothing?

She literally confessed at the end! If you think that's sub-subtext, you're really taking modern yuri for granted. Back in my day, we had to settle for "you're my best friend" nonsense, and we liked it.

We liked the old-school yuri because there was nothing else. We were so starved for content (we still are) or anything at all that we had to take whatever a third rate author pushed out.

If it wasn't for the yuri tag you'd have a hard time figuring out what this one shot is about. If you didn't have a clue and read it somewhere else the only thing giving it away was the blush at the very last panel and even that could be missed if you didn't go back a page and examining it carefully because you didn't think it would end like that. Again we are assuming what it is because the yuri tag. In fact the assumption by the coworker is painfully accurate because the author put a blindfold on the reader until the last panel.

I've been here for quite a long time (being a yuri fan for a lot longer) and subtext unless being extremely well done can die in a fucking car fire after all these years going through literal shit most of the time.

There is no redemption for 9 chapters of dragging this shit around.
