Feels like someone read Monster Musume no Nichijo, decided that Papi was best girl, and then went "Hmmmm....not gay enough!" and decided to make their own story. I approve!

Y'know, people give this series hate and I can definitely see its flaws but dammit, I love it to bits.

Do you mean the manga Amanogawa Ke No Yon Shimai?

I'm pretty sure they mean this in which case I can agree 1 adulterer was indeed unredeemable.

That is indeed the story I was referring to. Mind you, I didn't find the adulteress COMPLETELY irredeemable. The rational part of my brain wants to understand her and even agree with her on some points, whereas the emotional side of me wants her to burn alive for stuff that are too spoileriffic for me to mention because I don't know ho to hide stuff behind spoiler tags because I'm a massive Luddite! xD

So much hate in this comment section. Sure, cheating is bad but so is taking a hardline stance of "Cheating is ALWAYS bad regardless of circumstance!" Just from reading the comments you'd think the mom and childhood friend had done some hardcore NTR-play on Yukiko and the dad.

From the look of things, the marriage depicted seems to be the classic loveless marriage, where there may not be any abuse, but there's also no passion. The two just stay married because...well, they're used to being married, and the lack of love isn't a big enough problem for them to get a divorce. And lo, the childhood friend shows up and showers the mom in all the love and passion that's been missing from her marriage for who knows how long.

People are seriously overreacting. Compared to the cheating subplot in say, Yon Shimai, which made me downright FURIOUS at the two adulterers, this is downright tame.

My theory is that she's moving back and forth in time almost exactly 15 years. After she went back to the past, it moves forward at a normal pace for Rinko a FRUSTRATINGLY confusing and unspecified amount of time. Maybe six months or a year? Hell, at one point there, A-chan is hanging out with university students who look to be her classmates, despite being only 3 years older than Rinko who at the time was supposed to be in her second year of middle school? I'm super confused regarding the "main timeline".

Anyway! If she leaps back and forth in time at a rate of 15 years, give or take two or three days, then when she went back to be an older lady, she might actually be in her early 30's at this point. Maybe the kids have moved on with their lives in some way and Rinko got together with Shijou after they left.

That bonus chapter with Subaru and Asakura almost makes up for the sub-par ending. Go get him, Subaru!

It's funny how some people are complaining about Subaru and Asakura, seeing as the one major reason this was even translated in the first place is Subaru's crossdressing. Hachimitsu scans only translate stuff that has gender bending or is made by an author whose work they've previously worked on. The yuri is really just the added cherry on top :P

In regards to the resolution, I see no way for the love triangle to end in a satisfying manner. Having two of them pair of would leave a bittersweet taste for the last girl, no matter how content she herself would be with the outcome, and the three of them remaining friends by keeping the status quo would just feel straight up bitter with none of the sweetness. Even worse if they all end up with boyfriends after some bullshit time-skip. Worse STILL if Subaru ends up falling in love with a girl because then the author would have seriously been stringing us along for some massive next level trolling."See?! It's just a phase! Everyone turns out normal in the end!" Honestly, If that's actually how it ends, I'll have some Hulk-level rage.

What to you call Kanade's super-serious-about-ridiculous-stuff character type? A Don Quixote character? Something-dere? xD

At any rate, I love her character type.

I think Tanabe-san is the author's self-insert.

Definitely. It's a pretty common thing to have a female side-character as a stand-in for the author in BL, and having said character help in resolving the MC's troubles adds to the author's feeling of "Yas! I am creating TRU LAV!"

....but I digress. I really liked Tanabe-san! While a lot of gay people hate being represented by the works of people of the opposite gender, because of their tendency to fetishize them, I just can't bring myself to dislike this story. Hayasaka-kun is clearly not transgender, yet he chooses to dress like a woman in everyday life because that sort of dynamic is important to his relationship with Yasuda-san. Usually, I would scream about how they're mixing up gay and trans identities, but here? It works just fine.

I just can't help but feel so goddamned happy for the main characters ;__;

Honestly, anyone saying that Kotooka is being "selfish" is just plain wrong, and objectively so. She's misguided, definitely, but not selfish. Nothing she's ever done has been for her own sake. In fact, it's almost always been detrimental to it. Her wanting herself and her friends to be "normal" is just straight up a Japanese self-sacrificial stereotype at this point. She's convinced that the road to happiness for herself and her friends is for them to be normal in society's eyes. She's like a parent who is convinced that they know what's best for their child, even when it goes against the child's own wants and preferences. Everyone thinks that their way is the best way.

Honestly, this whole love triangle seems like a friggin' paradox at this point; if one of them gets what they want, then the others end up miserable. If none of them end up getting what they want, then they end up miserable. Or, as Kootoka seems to think; if none of them gets what they want, then they'll all be miserable together for a while, but at least they'll manage to keep a little happiness in the form of their friendship. Like I said, misguided as fuck, but in no way selfish.

I think Kotooka somehow, ALMOST realized how silly she was being trying to justify pushing Asakura onto Shiratori. She wants to remain friends, because she doesn't want to ruin what they have right now. When Asakura uses the exact same excuse, she gets pissed and frustrated because any sort of rebuttal would be a rebuttal against her own excuse! The struggle is real! xD
