What philosophies does this represent? Existentialism? Nihilism? How does this say nothing at all yet speak tremendous volumes?

Metaphilosophy and aesthetics, with particular focus on Ma (間).

I went to a local LGBT support group. It was a place to share our feelings about being gay. I shared my feelings about being gay and that I have a hard time liking and accepting myself for it. I would rather be heterosexual just because it would make life a little bit easier on me, especially growing up in a staunch Christian household.

Somehow, apparently, it's a threat to other people that I feel that way about being gay. It's like they're saying that I'm saying that it's wrong for other people to accept their gayness. I'm not, and the only reason I shared is because I was hoping I wasn't alone in feeling this way, but I guess I am. Apparently we're all just supposed to be extremely happy that we're gay and completely accepting of it. And if you think differently when you're among other LGBT, you better just keep it to yourself.

My kid had a tough time figuring out who/what they were, and started attending an LGBT group once they realized that they were queer. One of the things that happened was that a generational gap developed over the course of a mere three years. The older teens in the program had the kinds of difficulties you describe, many of them sneaking out to go the the program because they were still in the closet. Some were abused and/or homeless because of the way their families reacted when they found out. But the younger teens joining the program were very open and out, and vocal about it. They came from supportive families, had queer and straight friends who accepted each other and all hung out together, and they could never understand the challenges the older teens had faced. It's kind of weird that there was such a huge gap in experiences with such a small gap in years, and it made things really awkward between the older and younger teens, because the younger ones just couldn't understand (and had no patience for) what the older teens were dealing with. The whole "support" aspect started to slip away, and it became more of a hang-out-and-have-fun group.

On the one hand, it's heartening to see attitudes and experiences evolving before our eyes. On the other hand, it is sad to see people take for granted the experiences that others have fought or are still fighting through. Just because people form a community on the basis of being queer does not mean that every queer experience is the same. But that is far different from saying that your experience is unique. You are not alone.

That last editor was a huge asshole, and his moms a hoe.

I'm pretty sure anyone would grow up with issues if one of their parents was a farming implement.

He might even grow up to be a total rake.

Kind of depends on what you're into; they can range all over the place, but you might start by taking a look through here.

Unfortunately, some of my personal favorites have been dropped, abandoned, licensed, or cancelled. :-(

Blue Drop was one of the series that first introduced me to yuri. Might not be for everyone; there is a definite "squick" factor to some chapters. If you do like it, you'll find a couple others in the same universe on the author's page.

Tandem Lover is sort of old-school mecha mixed with yuri romance. Short but cute.

Mondlicht* and Marriage Black are two that I don't have the clearest memory of but recall enjoying.
* I meant Vampire After the Doomsday Got them confused with each other.


Damn, that gives me a great idea for NaNoWriMo, too! Wonder if I have enough time left to pull it off....

I stepped away for like two chapters, and... What the hell happened in here?!?!?

Btw, how many of you did believe, for a few seconds, that Sakurako really experienced withdrawal symptoms when Kasumi got more than five steps away? I totally did. She got me good.

(raises hand) Guilty as charged.

TBF it is completely plausible, coming from her...

I fell for it too for a what felt like a few seconds.

I'm with @random. Still not convinced she isn't really having withdrawals and just trying to cover out of embarrassment.

.
Also, I stand by my comment of two years ago:

They got married, started dating, and have all but confessed their feelings for each other. In that order.

We need an Ahoge tag. It's a pretty distinctive trope.

And maybe a Photography tag.

Hi ! I'm looking for a manga I saw a long time ago, where the protagonist is hired to be the bodyguard of one of her classmate, I know it's vague but I don't remember very much than this. it's not a one shot.

Possibly this?
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/basics_of_stealth

thx but no^^ that was a red cover, with a lot more chapters in it. and it was yuri, not subtext

Anything more to go on than that?
- Mood: comedy, action, romancy?
- Bodyguard skills: gun, sword, martial arts, impressive levels of incompetence?
- Any supernatural elements? Modern or period piece? Yakuza? Ecchi?

Without that, there's a few that come close...
The MC in Shitsuji Shoujo to Ojousama is hired as butler, not a bodyguard.
The MC in Shitsurakuen could be viewed as a bodyguard.
Tenwin wa Hana to Asobu has a guardian, of sorts.

I can think of one or two others but don't recall the names, and they may have been one-shots.

Edit -- Found one: A Lovesong in a Nameless Country, one-shot about a ninja and her princess.

I love seeing some of the differences between versions.

I like having both open to compare too lol, whats up with the difference in texture or whatever? Almost like a filter or something. The additions to chapter 54 were lovely.

I did notice that, but I think you're looking at the difference in mediums. On the web version, you can color in greyscale while the print version allows only b/w. So something that has a smooth, grey texture on the web comic will have to use screentone to achieve the same effect in print manga.

How is the WTFaIR tag only on one chapter?

fixed.

we are just starting to get back to this one after a bit of a break. hope everyone enjoys it. <3

Thanks. Yes, it's a very different kind of "wrong" from, say, Dowman Sayman, but I quite enjoy it.

"Time skips are too cliché. What can I do that's different? I know! I can have two time skips in a chapter!"

Am I the only one worried about Honami-san coming home with a tan? I thought the whole point of the sleepover was that she was going to cram school and didn't have time for stuff. Why would she be outside all day?

You misunderstood the page, even though Fuyuki and Koyuki were the ones on panel when that line was said, it was Kaede saying it to Konatsu, and Konatsu got a little tan because she had been at Aoshima (the cat island) all day with her kouhais of the aquarium club as seen in the previous half of the chapter.

Gah, another one! I feel like I had a lot of trouble telling who was speaking this chapter. Two others I caught, had to go back and reread when I realized the speaker wasn't who I thought it was. Some visual clue when off-panel characters are speaking would have helped, but that's the artist's choice.

Pretty sure this is the only time I will ever see Shoujo Sect and "precious" in the same sentence.

^ And yet, I'm still back once or twice a year, hoping. Even though I know it can never be the same. I mean, the author/artist will have changed a lot in those years. Hard to recapture the same sense.

"Actually..." and then we completely jump scenes!!!

sigh -- Don't mind me. Just hanging out on the edge of this cliff for another chapter.

The title pages for each chapter have been bothering me for a while with the strange clock mechanisms in the background. I'm hoping this is just symbolism of the time limit that Miku's imposed....

Time seems to be an ongoing theme in this series. I mean, I haven't seen it written in kanji anywhere to confirm, but doesn't the title translate to something like, "After Today, the Future"? Which is an obvious play on Kyouko (today) and Miku (future).

Edit: Or maybe that the Future is (chasing) after Today?

Lovely as usual. And still that friend who "collects" men still remains nameless.. guess I'll name her Fleabag lol

I don't think I've ever noticed before that she officially has no name.

Yay, another update!

But I can't help but notice that the bonus chapters appear out of order...

Edit: I see it's been fixed. Thank you, nameless chapter elf.

Haley Joel Osment could see dead people. I can see Bad Yuri Endings. It's my curse. I've been taught to always expect the worst.

Yes, but he couldn't see them before they actually died!

Not my thing overall, but seeing Gourai greet the other FA Girls by shaking their finger (and their confused reaction to it) is adorable beyond words.
