What great potential for a backstory! It could describe how Satoko started to fall for Yuka, how she perceived this, and her initial personal reaction. Think of the emotions, the rationalizing, the details!

Comics suggestions? 12 Mar 22:53

Carl Barks's Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck comics are magnificently written. They benefit from a generous sprinkling of humor throughout. Nice artwork and familiar characters make the comics easy to get into.

However, if you're looking for comics with yuri in them, I don't have the answer.

I just don't see how this could develop into a good, healthy relationship

Swell Window is pretty sweet, and it's generally worth checking out any of her stuff.

Wow, I never even heard of Zee Avi until now. Thank you!

Kishi Torajirou magnificently renders the characters' lips.

Considering I asked this online, I should have expected these suggestions...

I'm wondering if anybody could recommend some love songs. I've gotta celebrate Valentine's Day in style!

Recently, I've grown partial to Heart on Ice by Emerson Lake and Palmer.

You can try chamomile, bitfarb; it is splendidly pleasant, yet tends to be quite inexpensive.

Something about this art style just makes the story so much more endearing.

"And above all, I owe Mizushima-san my life" (p5)

Just slightly over dramatic enough to give me a chuckle.

Now I understand why all the VHS rental stores went out of business.

I like this second chapter. Still confused about the makeup, though (p26).

A well thought out story. Numerous intrigues, love triangles, and double motives merit a second read for detail. Sinobu-san certainly embodies these with her surprising and fascinating character development, which earns her the place of most well-conceived persona.

It's undeniable. Fujiwara Ei has magnificently conveyed pain.

Would not one arrow, preferably in a non-fatal location, have sufficed?

Algae discussion 09 Nov 23:00

Fuji Tamaki's Algae is packed full of so much symbolism and feeling in so few pages. A magnificent read.

The pool symbolizes the girls' past together and the graduation ceremony symbolizes their separation. While the dark-haired girl's tears indicate pain, they ultimately foreshadow healing. The dark-haired girl is saddened that she and the light-haired girl are parting ways.

Water generally symbolizes change and strong emotions. The presence of algae in the (stagnant) water indicates a lack of change and indifference. In other words, the two girls have experienced a consistent platonic relationship, but have not directly allowed their emotions to interfere.

Again, the algae symbolizes a lack of emotion. When the light-haired girl says that the algae is coiled around her heart, she means that the two girls' emotional distance has been eating away at her heart. Alternatively, algae can symbolize growth; in this case, the light-haired girl's sentimental growth with respect to the dark-haired girl.

Later, "tangled flagella" are pictured as tangled legs, presumably those of our two main characters. Since flagella are active, moving parts from creatures in the Kingdom Animalia, it directly contrasts with the stagnant, (e)motionless algae from the Kingdom Plantae.

In conclusion, "our algae" does not reveal an emotionless, decaying relationship, but rather reveals an active, loving, growing, and affection-filled relationship.

Very artistically drawn.
