Oh man another isekai. I don't think the concept of isekai is inherently bad but every single one that I've read so far has been full of trope-y writing and shallow, annoying characters but I'll cautiously follow this one for now.
Mildly unrelated, but I always find it interesting how natural smoking is still seen in Japan, heck some probably still think it's looks cool to smoke even compared to most Western countries that have (rightfully) stigmatized smoking and are rapidly moving away from it being a mainstream thing.
Idk, it reminds me of real life horror stories of "nice guys" who just stay back and observe a girl they like because they're too socially inept and then when their crush finally throws them a bone in the way of any sort of attention, they become absolute monsters and take an inch for a mile.
I'd rather the premise was the loner doing it on a spur of the moment thing since she didn't like being used for the recommendation letter and wanted to teach smart girl a lesson rather than the whole one sided feelings thing though again, I don't like the premise at all either way lol
Eughhhhhh, I never liked the premise of this manga where the kissing is only happening for other motives but it kinda makes it worse that loner liked girl the whole time and saw her chance to strike by blackmail to force intimacy. If this wasn't mangaland there definitely would be some psycho vibes.
I swear every single manga I've seen with the premise of people living together because of dead relatives has been very wishy washy and vague. Also ending had the very clichéd character moves out for no reason just so we could end in a time skip where they reunite. The premise is cursed.
The flashbacks between midori and original girl was def lesbian love, at least one sided but the love between midori and the daughter is clearly familial imo.
I think the drawings of the characters are quite good but a lot of panels just seem too busy? With that much dialogue and background design it's hard to know where to look when reading each panel and it takes some time to decipher it.
I'm always surprised when I see a Yuri-ism release. They used to be one of the big scanlators when YuriProject was still a thing and pushing releases like everyday. Good times and a blast from the past/not quite dead scanalator.
Tbh, I don't think this even classifies as a yuri work. The only thing in its favor is that it has 2 female leads. We're expecting yuri because it's tagged yuri but I think that's just wrong tagging and there's no yuri to be found or will be found.
Man, reading that final extra chapter just felt like so much of the manga eventually was nothing. Author is just like fuck it, and pairs the remaining characters all willy-nilly. All the beginning chapters were basically just to leave you in a state of constant perpetuation and when they finally explain it you're just like "uh... OK". Disappointing how I like this artist's art style both their works have been disappointing.
Lol, I remember real sad that the translation of this dropped but Jesus, what a shit show. Some cosmic fate would never allow them to be together so Rinko is like just cuck me and I'll make do with your kids.
@cryssoberyl really? I only read Heavenly Garden and I want to be honest but they both have similar premises like Age 15 as in it starts with rape which blooms into love. Asagi Ryuu has always had a nukiege writing style to me.
It's a cheap source of dramatic tension that doesn't require much creativity or effort. The longer they maintain the lie the longer they can go without having to think up new sources of conflict in the story.
Sounds about right. And then when the lie is revealed, the manga ends shortly after because the author's writing crutch is gone so all these lying chapters end up with puny payoff, nty
