This is fun! I have one thought about the whole time-travel thing, but I don't know how to do a black bar in case it's actually true. Also, generally speaking, since time is fluid and expansive, going back wouldn't change the jumper's reality when they returned. They already exist in one thread, and since they are themselves they'd have to return to that thread and anything they've done in the past is creating a different thread.
I'd guess generally, anything they do won't be done when they come home. Or something like that. Or, all of our realities exist at once and we can choose which reality to return to, or even mix and match to suit our wishes. As the Buddhist belief's go, we are always rising and falling away, but our consciousness remains the same.
Actually, the manager has been stalking the MC since her big sister, the raven haired beauty, caught sight of her and fell in love. However, since they are filthy, stinking rich, said beauty wants to find someone who will love them instead of their money. Or something like that. Really. It could happen.
I like how everyone is a jerk behind the scenes. This could be fun.
Personally, tentacles don't bother me per se, as they seem to be a Japanese "thing" but here it 1) makes no sense & 2) makes no sense. I get the feeling that Mira is trying to cram all the stereotypes into one story and so far it isn't quite fitting. The storyline would need to be much more developed for this to be palatable. Still, it's Mira and I like Mira. I don't think an author should be required to grow to be considered good.
Alright let's not just speed past that the hamsters name is rations lmfao
It's a degu, not a hamster. According to wikigod, it's from Chile. The photos look a bit chinchilla-ish to me. Did you know the chinchilla is a critically endangered species? I did not. I thought they just bit really, really hard.
The first part of the chapter seemed to me an insanely close copy to New Game, with the more adult figures. I might have been influenced by the gothic maid on the cover, though. I saw the management people as Yagami and Rin; one has a soft heart but major tsundere issues and the other is kind and stays out of the way unless needed. By the end, I felt the story had sufficiently diverged to ditch the comparisons.
It's true that settings come with a cast of characters in manga, or any high-churn creative field. You can read 5 Harlequin romances and have read every one that's ever been written (I do not recommend doing so or your head will explode) and we all know the giant-[insert creature/natural-/alien-disaster here]-boy-gets-girl B-grade movies that turn up every other week. It's the only way for an author to really keep up with the release pace they need to make any decent money.
I prefer New Game at this point, but I like moe subtext stuff. In my own work, I'm always in the aaaaaaangst age-gap area, so fluff is a nice lunch break.
Also, work mom. I was one of these for many years and didn't even know there was a term. Of course, I worked with actual teenagers, and am a mom, so it fit.
Is there a lesbian commuter train orgy tag? I'm also thinking she's not being molested because she's a willing participant, so it's just statutory public rape. That sounds a lot worse, though, huh. I wonder how many Japanese women in the women-only cars have read this stuff and start looking around nervously lol. Or not so nervously. I'd be jammed in a corner with my briefcase in front of me, personally.
I'd forgotten about this one, but with Chapter 3 I'm again happily awaiting moar fluffy airhead yuri girl's school club-hopping comedy! Every once in a while, it's nice to lean back with a nice, trope-ridden story about girls at play.
I thought it was funny as [blink] myself. I'm not sure why a new student would be hanging upside down on the third story balcony, but hey--whatever. I didn't go to the alien thing until I saw it mentioned, but yeah I could totally see that. It sorta feels like the start of a harem story; popular tomboy goes with dorky nerd-girl, one by one others see some attraction to said nerd girl that makes absolutely no sense and she ends up being chased around for three years of high school. Yup, perfect plot.
Wow it's been a few decades since I heard that word!
There's a lot of potential development here, but I suspect it won't be taken further. Also, the fangs are confusing. Are they supposed to be a metaphor? Does the author like fangs? I've seen the single fang trope a lot, but never as a part of the actual character, except in vampire or catgirl stories.
This seemed like a cliff notes version of a story that should be longer. Nothing really made sense and I didn't even get a good hold on the character's motivations beyond the surface statements. I played piano at a high level as a teenager, and I do remember the terror of something happening to my hands, but I never saw it as piano or no life. You can't put passion into an instrument if you've never experienced passion, my teacher said.
The funky neck thing reminded me of Senno Knife, and some traditional Japanese art that seems to think women's necks are able to bend at impossible (or at least painful) angles. It was definitely creepy-cute (that should be a tag) lol. This is weird enough to catch my interest.
It's funny, normally I really, really don't like rapey stories. Really. But I didn't even process that that's what this started out as until I read it the second time. Now I'm conflicted. Especially knowing what the last bit means. Actually, the last bit about the village kinda ruined it for me. I don't really want to read the rest of the stories now. Sigh, and could've been such a great romance, too.
Please add the yandere tag. Spoiler or not, you don't want people to be misled
Mm, I think that would srsly clash with what the artist intended though. Like, if I was working on a fandub of Citizen Kane, i wouldnt tag it "It's not a person, it was a sled" so people wouldn't get misled.
And yeah I just compared Citizen Kane to a Love Live porno. That's just how I roll.
What's the point of filters without proper tags? People blacklist rape and yandere for a reason, man...
Yes please... add those tags, this was disturbing... for me
I second that (or is it third?) with giant caps. Giant, giant caps...
