Wait. Their names are Josette and Marie? They were sort of exiles? They were impregnated by a spirit with supernatural powers? And they're going to give birth to magical superhuman beings? Does noone else see the connection here?! I bet those newborn hybrids will be named something like Jesus... and mind you, religion was the establishing theme, but these two (and the Dryad: together sort of an alternative holy Trinity) are subverting it. Jesus of the forest could very well be the sequel about one of those magic children. I'm really liking it, great job Mira, if my speculations are true.
That's not always the case. I've grown a whole size in a year from 18 to 19. Now I feel like my feet are still growing and I already have hard time finding shoes that I fit into. Were I in Japan, no women's shoes would ever fit me I think.
I read the credit page, and am still confused if the series is over, or if there will be another arc.
it seems that there will be the part 2 of Hua empire`s story. sort of like season 2, for many a plotline were left hanging unresolved. Hope that the class 5-3 will find a way to reunite the country and it will be the end of this series.
You should try skirts and dresses once in a while, because YOU ARE A GIRL
couldn't hate this reasoning more. Like, seriously, do some people just need to obtain a bit of education on diversity and spectrum?.. gender expression doesn't oblige to correspond with gender identity, much less with whether a person is biologically ascribed as a dude or a girl. ._.
Edit: hope I didn't sound too tumblr-y, I've just had an ongoing problem with this Miu and her stereotypically standartized mindset from the start.
Best chapter so far. So close and yet so distant... beautiful. At least they've talked this through so all's just a matter of time now.
And I seriously wish there were more girls like "it's still too early for it, we're only seventeen" in real life, too.
P. S. Oh these two are totally not telling
anyone. It's just the next day whole school finds out.
I love the East and yet I hate it. When stuff like Invisible Storm in Yuri Kuma or the class like in this manga comes to play, I can't help hating on the societal system of a country that is otherwise a nice place on earth, which somehow doesn't favour a concept of honesty too much ( with honesty apparently being a worldwide human value)
Hah, what did I tell ya back in the day about Kuchiba returning? And now she's back! So, this time she gave off the vibe of potential final boss. How?
Look, firstly, she's professional as all hell. See how she did her job with ideal presicion, after neutralizing that other sniper whom she sensed from couple kilometers distance? Then secondly, Kimihara kanshikan got her number. It's no doubt that she's the one who hired Kuchiba both times, in the mansion and here, to backup the Asagi ordeal. Thirdly, Kimihara clearly despises Kuroko, and given the right moment she'll use any opportunity to turn her "weapon" Reiko against the hated Koumori. Assuming she can call on Reiko anytime, we may expect something like an ultimate, culminative battle of Kurokon with some ultra hard criminal, and after she fails and Kuchiba says her last word with a bullet finishing the target, they'll probably turn on each other. And that, onee-samas, will be the most epic duel to ever be in this manga.
But secretly, I wish for that number to somehow leak to Kurokon. She can't let such awesomeness pass her by, all girls should be hers, remember?
Anyway, I am immensely joyous upon the comeback of best girl, hope the manga elaborates more on her story and who's that partner of hers with amnesia. Given that Murcielago is already over 30 chaps, all is going to be told I believe...
P. S. That anon who got here because of the cars, could you tell the model of that metal babe in which Reiko drove by with her driver when Kuroko was there? It's on page 26-27 of chapter 17 or so.
Fleur just so much looks like Mayuri here... Heaven forbid this kinda thing happen to her and Suou somewhere in future, though. I wish Mayuri'd return at least in Winter part of the game, or I'll boycott Innocent Grey.
Sorry, a bit of FLOWERS-related rant there, noone really is at fault that MC reminds me of my waifu this much.
is there a possibility that this visual novel is also known in Thailand or am I just seeing things?
Can't not like how it escalated.
(Holy loli, now I've discovered some useful shit. So that's how you make fonts bigger.)
Oh and how unusual is it to see them reverse their boke - tsukkomi roles. While Ran is usually your everyday ENFP being like a grown version of Toshinou Kyouko, to see her on a serious/focused side is a breath of fresh air. And to think of it ENFPs really are clever folks, often disguising their intelligence by the outer goofiness.
And honestly, that's some unexpected side of senpai. That is, I'd never thought she's the one to be scared of bugs and the likes of them. I mean, it's generally strange how people have a problem with roaches, I personally don't give a single shit about this creature, even when it's traveling across my own desk.
I get it, little girls are just this supernatural omnipresent entity that transcends forum threads and derails them one after another, spreading like a web virus. So no matter what the initial theme is in the thread - be the manga about high schoolers or even 25 year olds - everyone will eventually start talking of lolicon.
The art. The art though. Profiles and hands have hurt my eyesight. Aside from that, the idea itself is cute, except maybe I have a problem with Luka. I mean with calling her five years or so junior an onee-sama, to be precise.
Hm, but what if said person has no inferiority complex and never has any idolization in stock for leaders, and recognizes no authority whatsoever? Were this not the case, radical left movements such as anarchy couldn't be possible.
Anyways, so as not to come across as total derailer, I'll praise Show's humour in this one. That pigeon head was something, as was the "yakuza" stretch.
I've been holding it back for a long time but now that's enough, let me say this, apologizing in advance.
So, I am deeply impressed by the audience at this site, and not in a good way. 85% or so of the people who've commented on this manga seem shallow at best, mentally handicapped at worst.
I can't compute how the vast majority can percieve stories from this author on such a primitive surface level, disregarding Shuninta's tendency to be metaphorical, especially when it comes to writing characters. This is at least second work in the row, where her heroines are not as much of actual people, as they represent abstract concepts. She even spoonfed the meanings of their names in the afterword, though I found it unnecessary since to me it was clear from the get-go: the title is Philos+Sophia, where Philos is Ai (love) and Sophia is Tomo (wisdom/reason).
So, basically, the work is not as much of a story as in "story" with "plot", as in "epos" - but it's more of a philosophical essay on the nature of these two concepts, which is heavily implied by reflective thought lines throughout the manga. Thus, we have Love trying its best to stay a supreme feeling, to be above all that's worldly and lowly, but also trying to walk in line with reason, which is improbable - the reason drifts away from where love appears, almost instantly, they cannot coexist in harmony, to the point of being mutually exclusive. Ai's statements in ch4 hint this, by the way.
Lastly, when love makes a desperate advance and gets as close as possible to the object of its longing, reason dies and is now gone for good. However, even long after the reason is lost (could be also interpreted as raison d'etre of Love) and she finds herself widowed, Love still lingers in her reminiscence of what was Reason to her. And only the entity semblant of that reminiscence can somewhat evoke a reaction from her.
Also, both of the concepts get pretty much deconstructed, hence Sophia is acting with little wisdom and even is called by the name of unwise Monkey king, and ends up losing itself on the very way of finding itself, however tragic that may be. Love, Philos, on the other hand, ends up misdirected, misplaced, turned towards nothingness and unfulfilled, alone.
All in all, this work is a depiction of these two concepts yearning for knowledge of themselves and the other, failing in this quest. Tragic and beautiful, sincerely brought me to cathartic tears.
And heck, seriously anons, anyone can into philosophy? Anyone ever read actually philosophical works? For it doesn't seem the case. Had someone been familiar with how writing goes in your average philosophy, say, of existentialists, he wouldn't be complaining about "storyline", "plot consistency" and other bullshit. Once again, this is more an essay/research than an actual narrative story, at least author's antourage and the way she structured it seems to position her work that way.
Also, who got any ideas on the "logos.pathos.ethos" in the end? Logos could very well be referencing Tomo and her ordeal, pathos is the key element of tragedy, that is, involvement in the heroes' sufferings, and ethos...well since ethics are mostly about feelings, then maybe a hint on AI?
Well that was a nice ride. It's not everyday that we get manga about manga and authors who draw it. (The other one I remember in Yuri department is manga no tsukurikata). Wish it were a bit longer though, hoping there will be someone to pick up that second extra.
And yes, Chef Editor, you're indeed a matchmaker.
I like how there's this little info piece about cameras and photography every chapter. I am fairly into this visual art type too, so it's nice seeing a series about someone who carries around an old-style camera and develops the shots in a real red-lit laboratory. Also, I totally want that photocafe to be a real thing, well they do have all sorts of theme cafes there.
Edit: my post turned out to be the hundredth, huh
