I really like how this author executes plot themes about gender and sexuality so well while keeping it silly and lighthearted but oh so real. It doesn't necessarily have to be something very deep or profound, but the small things like how bluntly a character reacts to swapping genders and using it to their own gain (see "gender swapped fraternal twins"), in the end neither acknowledged whether they're gay or bi but the vibe they give off, the "hey i might be into the same sex but i'll take it in stride and experiment" is oh so good for me. Almost makes it seem like how the issue of being lgbt is not swept under the rug like most gl/bl manga but not handled so heavily either.

They sure act like one. A sweet and fluffy old couple who look after each other

I admit that I for one, am an avid rrader of oneeloli. Thus, Itou Hachi's works have always been devoured wholeheartedly by me. But this though....Itou-sensei always draws oneeloli with such feeling and grasp of such controversial topic that you can't help but feel that it isn't "wrong". But that last illustration with this particular couple going at it...it really out me off. I understand artists have the right to draw what they like and will still support itou-sensei.

Tldr: yikes nsfw 20 yr age gap. Still a good artist

Wait.

Itou Hachi draws porn?

She has! She has drawn quite a lot of this couple.

Link please? Just to confirm

No offense to the people from p106 who im sure worked very hard to scanslate the earlier chapter but i always felt the translations were a bit too literal...so i really enjoyed Kirara Fantasia's transcription of it

Right right so before i start ranting i just need to say that this is probably one of, if not the greatest Kodama Naoko work with an explicitly shown lesbian character. But i digress, not all is good without its faults.

For starters i felt it was too horribly short. I like where it went with her mom coming and the senpai dealing with it, but we don't get much of what happened between her and her mom besides that last panel showing her irritated mother and the picture of the happy couple. Im not asking for her mom to come to terms fully but at least stretch her as a plit device a little longer. I wanted to see the relationships between questioning adult children and their parents more!

Secondly is Hana, up till now a sweet cinnamon roll. But aha! For she might or might have had an ex who might ir might not still have baggage with her. It was extremely frustrating to suddenly see a change in Hana towards the senpai that felt very ooc when she had been very straight(lol)forward this whole time. Why suddenly have second thoughts now? When you're already done and married in the first place. To top it all off i hated to see her out her senpai on the spot. You don't just go and put a questioning person with the ultimatum of "you're either gonna be willing to have gay sex with me or im leaving because i if not it means you're straight". It just left a slightly bad taste in my mouth. Overall i enjoyed the manga lot regardless

My thing? Cute fluffy moeshit with no drama, breakups (and sometimes when im being a prude chaste...sex!) Just gotta keep things pure and light right? But BAM! this came in and i got hit with such well-presented reality that I must say that this was one of the best college life yuri i've seen so far.

It's sad to see cheating happen and how it was suffering for the both of them but I'm glad they sorted their respective issues out and had an amicable split. The mention that they weren't even "that" into each other was a nice touch because it just fits with the theme that they went out for experimentation while looking for real love. Saeko really should have told Miwa though, it just brought back bad memories of Honey & Honey. Also expressive art style to boot!

My love for this manga knows no bounds. Both characters are painfully lovable, endearing side characters too, no forced dramatic events, even character monologues are a far cry from the usual 20-page "hmm do i like her or do i not" bs. Man does the mc have guts to go right up to Honami senpai.

Just two girls learning how to talk to each other. Very wholesome, very slow burn, very gud.

This is really really good. Reminds me of that one candy-themed girls manga. Good job to the translators for picking this one up!

A really good take on Touhou lore. It doesn't sit the most well with me knowing how tough it has to be for Marisa but this sort of setting actually works very well. Also @rumpledforeskin she's probably nearing her 40's, what with the stress and all of aiding in incident-solving Marisa has all the right to have a few wrinkles here and there

This left me feelung confused. Like nothing was really achieved. Is this the true meaning of doujinshi?!?!?!

My heart melted. Kemofure translates especially well in children's-book style format

The dialogue in this especially during the sex scenes were really authentic and genuine sounding. Having actual communication during a mid-sex conversation is probably my biggest kink out there

Okay have to admit that i really wasn't into this at first, not with alot of themes that i couldn't sit well with like harems, cheating, promiscuity, momcons and the like but as the series progressed...i found it actually really funny with the cartoonish humor right up my alley? Especially the new chapter, damn that teacher is awesome!

(Also im not nitpicking but if the scanslators or author would like a proofreader, they've got a very free grammar-naz! right here)

I noticed the mangaka likes potraying Chika as a little agressive or rather less ditzy and oblivious than in the anime and I really dig that. Has great chemistry especially with their version of Riko being leds easily flustered and having a more calm and mature-ish feel about her

^^No baiting whatsoever....because there isn't much yuri to begin with....discount one or two scenes. But mostly their relationship gravitates towards friendship and mutual acknowledgement

Not stigmatizing chiaki's cut marks, I mean if she's gone through some shit its a plausible reason. But adding the fact that she's into menhera....if she really is harming herself physically just for the sake of fitting into that trend then yo you need some help girl

Or maybe she's into menhera because she's been through some shit? Could easily go either way. I've always thought the line people draw between body modification and scars was a bit odd, but if you have the scars to begin with, then you're pretty much blocked off from a lot of styles. Seems pretty easy to be drawn towards menhera when it's one of the few aesthetics that 100% works with the body you've got, and most of the others require you to cover them up or pretend they aren't there.

That's true, ya got a point there. Was actually thinking about something along the lines of that shortly after my original post but i guess my bias made me wave the thought off. Thanks for bringing another approach to it to the table tho
