"Wow" indeed… (looks like a bot.)

Definitely a bot, they'd edited it since you posted about it. Removed them.

As of today, Dynasty is no longer a primary yuri site. I know it's disappointment to hear, but from no on we'll be uploading het, yaoi and non-romance stories as well. Thank you for your understanding!

What brought this change if I may ask?

In case this post is serious and not playing along with Nevri's joke: Nevri isn't actually associated with the running of the site. They're parodying a number of recent complaints about non-yuri uploads that ignore the fact that the site has had non-yuri series uploaded for over a decade.

I think chapter 5 isn't very clear. I thought the misunderstanding had been resolved, only to realize in chapter 11 that it hadn't.

Well Masaru is kind of a huge idiot. Considering his response I think the implication was that he took it as Kazu denying being a girl because he had started out as a boy (from Masaru's point of view) and was just trying to reassure him without really understanding what Kazu meant.

I don't know if I'm feeling like this because I might not be remembering this story very well, but I don't recall Kurokawa ever giving signs of being this obsessed about Fujishiro. This chapter felt like a retcon to me, with a Kurokawa that was quite out-of-character.

It wasn't shown to be quite this extreme but from what I recall, this is still more or less how she was at the beginning of the series.

Basically the entire story in a nutshell right there, lol.

"ahahha, omg, look at me im so funny for doing some stupid prank, sooo funny" First some yaoi trash was uploaded a bit ago and now this? Who's approving this trash?

Someone hasn't check on the calendar.

I know it's April Fools. This stuff is still stupid and just like that disgusting yaoi crap shouldn't have been approved for upload

You could always just avoid the site for a few days around April first you know. Also:

disgusting yaoi crap shouldn't have been approved for upload

I don't know why we have to repeat this nigh-constantly to people but just because this site is primarily yuri-centric does not mean it's nothing but yuri. There's actually quite a few het and yaoi stories on the site.

Edit:

ahem moving away from the homophobic dude on the site about gay manga who will prolly be banned soon...

I wonder if this'll be just deleted tomorrow? =w= How can we possibly delete such a perfect yuri manga. The emotion and romance in the Lorem Ipsum monologue alone made me sob.

If past April Fool's uploads are anything to go by it may be listed on the series page separately from the rest of the chapters and labelled as an April Fool's chapter. I've seen that on a couple of other series in the past.

Okayyyyy, can someone please explain me what's going on please? I paused this after the "Ex" girl came back around ch30 or so, I thought "I'll give it time to deal with this potential drama" but I never expected this would have 90 chapters by now! are they still in school just doing random things ? are there side couples now being developed? Is just very rare for a yuri series to go over 50 considering they were dating from the start and the cast isn't too big.

The side couple thing is something that came up quite awhile back and only just resurfaced. (And looks like it could be the driving force for some development possibly.) As for where they are currently, their relationship hasn't really changed much but they're getting to the point in their school lives they have to start thinking about college and they're currently considering how that will affect their relationship.

Considering how clearly unfit the prince is to rule, I don't see how that outcome would even be a good thing anyways.

Im not sure i completely garsped why the prince is unfit to rule. The only thing we know of him so far is, that hes a rather emotional, easy to influence person and he does not care about customs. I mean sure, its undeniable that the protag has achieved more already, but ruling isnt about your scientific knowledge, hell it might even be good to cranck down that a bit. The prince also seemingly has learned to be assertive, making him a shrewd negotiator with his fellow noblemen under his thumb.

Oh and does marrying the girl consequently places him as the rightful heir? I also didnt get that, i just want him to be happy, is all. Its hinted he just wants to get more recognition (than her sister), but that would make little sense in regards of cancelling marriage, so im sure he does truly love that other person of lower standings.

Did you miss the whole incident with Euphie at the very beginning of the story? That alone shows he's completely unfit to rule. He'll throw completely innocent people under the bus just to advance his own personal interests with no regard for how that might turn out for his kingdom.

He's proven himself to be self-centered, overly emotional, and has shown poor judgment on multiple occasions. Those are all very poor qualities for a ruler to have.

Now, can we please get back to talking about the big-butt hamster yuri?

You don't get to be the one to say that when you were the source of the problem in the first place.

... is not something I would ever expect a mod to say about someone trying to end a heated off-topic discussion.
Really?

Perhaps I could have worded it better but when someone keeps arguing only to make a post like that it seems like they're just trying to get the last word in. If BoobTwinkler had actually been sincere about getting back on-topic then they would have just dropped the subject and moved on.

Ok, i dont want any spoilers, but the optimal ending is: The two girls slay the dragon, take their time to scavenge the loot of the corpse, the prince comes, goes back, reports he has slayn the dragon, and can finally just marry that person.

Knowing the protag, she probably doesnt care about honor very much, so shes fine by having the credit stolen.

Everything ends well.

Worst outcome: to regain his HONOR the prince betrays the two whilst the fight and heavily injures one of the two, takes the credit for killing the dragon and this story will be about how the two girls try to take REVENGE.

Considering how clearly unfit the prince is to rule, I don't see how that outcome would even be a good thing anyways.

I will however fully stand by my point that 2SpiritCherokeePrincess doesn't have a legitimate point in this context and is mainly at fault for showing up out of nowhere just to demand that another user conforms to their stance on an issue that is both debatable and entirely unrelated to this forum and thread.

It's rude, has no relevance to this discussion and essentially just invites a fight about the issue. Unintentional baiting, I would call it.

And to make clear; I have not at any point intended to imply that cultural appropriation does not exist nor that it does no harm, merely that the situation that ChrokeePrincess was reacting to here was not really a harmful example of such and therefor that their reaction was overreactive, misguided, unconstructive and rude.

Not the way I see it. The way I see it is that you were the one in the wrong here. If you want to discuss this any further then take it to the help thread. And other site staff are free to weigh in on whether they disagree with me or not in this context.

Now, can we please get back to talking about the big-butt hamster yuri?

the idea of grooming some str8 girl into liking women literally makes me wanna vomit. i can't get into this story because it just feels like exactly the type of thing some hetero women think lesbians are like ( predatory af ) which is disgusting to me so i'm quitting this.

While Fuwa is predatory and creepy regardless, it's quickly made abundantly clear that Marika is just deep in denial.

I very much enjoyed reading your interesting and informative post. It has given me much to think about.

I'm sorry to say if there's a joke or question in here, it's gone completely over my head...

I'm not sure why they didn't address the actual issue there but I'm 99% certain that was a bot. It was basically a copy+paste of the post above it but with a couple words changed to synonyms. Went ahead and removed them.

This is so stupid..They really went down the Polygamy route..Poly is sh*t.. :|

So this is fine, eh, @Alice Cheshire?
You shouldn't beat someone even if he keep throwing shits at your house.
With comments like this in every polygamory but poly fan must be nice and comments in a far less inflammatory way

Nice job trying to call me out on something I hadn't even seen yet, lol. I would have warned them not to make posts like that too if I had seen it before OrangePekoe did. Also as Pekoe said, if you have a problem with a post like that post in the help thread. That'll ensure that one of the site's moderators sees it.

I think these comments: this one and this one are too much.

Banned them for a day (normally this would just warrant a warning but they were going too far and multiple times in a short period of time) and warned them against making further posts like this.

Warned him to quit that shit.

I think this is definitely going too far now and also targeted towards a user that is no longer here.

Okay, yeah. That was way too far. Extended to a month for that one.

Wow, I can't believe hamster-chan just let them take pics of her massive dumptruck like that!

This manga has an animal for everyone, and that director is my spirit animal

Could you not mock my people by misusing the phrase "spirit animal" please?

That's not mockery, chill.

https://www.spiralnature.com/spirituality/spirit-animal-cultural-appropriation/

Nice opinion-piece you linked there, still nonsense.
Someone using "spirit animal" as a joke on the internet doesn't stop you or anyone else from using the term properly nor does it negate the cultural significance and meaning it has to your people. Stop taking offense from something harmless just because you don't like it.

Please crusade for something constructive instead, like helping the poor.

Yeah, let's not do this. It might be a harmless joke but there are problems with this sort of thing. Most notably this:

Someone using "spirit animal" as a joke on the internet doesn't stop you or anyone else from using the term properly nor does it negate the cultural significance and meaning it has to your people.

Is in fact not true and the reason why people started getting pissy about cultural appropriation in the first place.

Please crusade for something constructive instead, like helping the poor.

Also this was completely unnecessary and borders on violating rule #1.

Being overly aggressive, insulting, or generally a jerk is against the rules.

This part is easily construed as some condescending bullshit attempt to try and negate 2SpiritCherokeePrincess's point.

Hey, what's up? Try to download this chapter today and it tells me that I have exceeded the download limit. I just downloaded 1 chapter just today and the limit is 8, what is happening?

Likely you downloaded more yesterday and it hasn't been quite 24 hours yet.

To elaborate on this, to my knowledge the server logs the time of each of your downloads. So you need to wait 24 hours after your first download to get a ninth rather than your downloads resetting at midnight in the server's timezone like you might expect.

Poly haters can eat shit, polyamorous folks deserve to be represented, too.

You could word this in a far less inflammatory way. It's understandable some people don't care for it having a sudden polyamory development. There was no indication until now that this was the way it would turn out. If there had been then plenty of people, such as myself, wouldn't have bothered reading it because we don't enjoy polyamory at all.

Comments that boil down to "Ew I hate the way other people love" get pretty exhausting and the hypocrisy of it in a community largely dedicated to manga about queer people is also pretty grating. It's annoying when people feel the need to shit all over your identity in the extremely sparse instances where you get any representation of it.

And that is fair. But simply shitting on people for disagreeing with your views isn't cool. Especially when it borders on breaking the site's rules as AvyJae's post did. Plus there is a difference between someone not personally caring for something like polyamory and actively denying it at all. In my case, for example, it's not something I care for. Thus when stories are uploaded that feature it as a tag, I tend to actively avoid it rather than do like some people and read it then complain. In this case though, that wasn't an option to begin with. And that seems to be the root of the complaint for many of the others who are complaining. (That and some who are viewing it as a lazy solution to a love triangle, which can be a valid criticism.)

To be clear, I (and from what I've seen, nobody else complaining about it here) aren't saying that polyamory can't be a thing or that stories involving it shouldn't be uploaded to the site. People are just expressing their personal distaste for it and that they're less interested in the series now.

Quit making multiple posts in a row. If you need to add something to your post use the edit button. It kinda exists for a reason. Several posts in a row for one line replies makes things more difficult to read.

The interesting thing about this chapter is, if you really think about what Kurokawa said, she essentially confessed right there as well, but her inferiority complex keeps her thinking they shouldn't be together.

So I'm not the only one who got that impression. If you take out the crap about her inferiority complex it's really difficult to read it as anything other than a confession of her own, lol. Hopefully Nanaki isn't too shocked by her outburst and getting turned down to realize this detail.

luinthoron posted:

I think the response, to Kurokawa's melodramatic B.S., Fujishima was looking for was "Who I fall in love with is my choice".

That is not really wrong, but it's not enough. She also needs to make Kurokawa see that it's alright for her to be loved by Fujishiro, that she is actually equal to her, or Kurokawa will keep rejecting her anyway.

I think that the best solution to the issue (past Kurokawa seeing a therapist) is for Nanaki to get her to realize that she's far from the ideal person Kurokawa sees her as. It wouldn't actually solve Kurokawa's inferiority complex issue at its root but it could at least solve this specific issue.
