I read this elsewhere but came running when I recognized the artist. Can't wait for the actual translation. That machine stuff can get the point across but I'll happily reread when it drops here.

I think this story's pretty fantastic. Instant fave even though everyone sucks. Some of the imagery absolutely blows me away. Iwami really has a way with visual symbolism that leaves you speechless. My poly ass has dreams of a happy ending, but that's obviously not happening. Most we can hope for is that no one gets murdered.

Transition. That feeling of being stuck. A hint of hope that leaves you delirious because there just might be a way to be happy. Idle, transitory moments that show you what could be, that you're not alone, that you're a rebel. I wouldn't have understood this if I read it ten years ago. But right now I get it.

I really wish I could go to places other than fanfiction for solid trans representation. I read so many wonderful stories on this site and others and can't help but think "what if one of these stories had someone like me?" But I guess we still have a long way to go. With the world on fire and fascists taking over every major government, it's hard to see a way out of this that doesn't end with me dying in a hate crime for using pronouns my parents didn't use for me.

Another trans girl here. Definitely not crazy about this story. At some point I think I was just hate reading. The comments weren't much better. Reading the 2014-2015 comments did make me realize how far we've come in regards to trans education. I have zero sympathy for Botan, especially since she equated kashiwa's transition and fear of familial abandonment/violence to botan's wish to have affairs with married men and never have her family ask questions about her personal life. Like uh no sorry bitch, you have no ground to stand on. I don't give a flying fuck that she was saving pennies in a teddy bear. My response to, shockingly, like a third of the characters in this story is that there's no excuse for abuse. Ever.

Kashiwa left out of fear, botan and their father left out of hatred, plain and simple. She can fuck off. And the amount of transphobia in this manga was so triggering. Specific scenes and lines reminded me of things my parents have said, my suicidal ideation, the difficulties of transitioning, and similar experiences my partner has had. I cried like three times and one additional time from the comments.

This series is really rough. Definitely a product of its time and region. Despite those things, certain elements were simply unforgivable. Every piece like this was a stepping stone to more people being educated and other creators avoiding the same mistakes.

Is it bad that I prefer the side characters over himari and yori? I still love them, especially any scene with himari interacting with anyone, but I adore the side characters. Akki is my absolute favorite and shiho is a close second. The writing in this series is so interwoven and complex that every scene feels rewarding no matter who's in it.

Also I just finished AnoKiss for the first time and am in the mood for ensemble cast stories. Side pairings forever!

This is the bad ending. Not joking. It's not explicit that they sleep together but c'mon.

Shinobu's relationship with Kyoko is a big reason why she's one of my favorite characters. She's also just a giant tsundere and that's irresistible.

Omg my heart was beating so fast at the end of this chapter. Tongtong is so cute and sweet. I just want them to be happy and gay together.

^ wow that is an old pairing. SonAhri basically died when K/DA came out. You are a brave soul.

I like stories with lots of flawed, selfish characters. Makes for great drama. And it really feels like they're acting their age which is kinda refreshing.

As much as I’m trying to I don’t really see any yuri between the two girls I tried but sensei is just way to emotionless for me to catch anything it really is just a sensei and fan relationship even with my biased yuri vision

She's certainly subtle, but I think her affection is evident. The rose situation is the most blatant. When fan told her that there's meaning to a number of flowers given, sensei immediately googled it a left fan with 9. What a Chad. There were other moments but I'd need to reread to remember them.

you could say bakazaki has high intelligence and low wisdom (like 4 wis). She knows tomatoes are fruit but she would still put them in a fruit salad.

Edie only knows how to go hard. I don't think she knows a gentler way of doing this.

These comments. I really like this story. Kinda insta faved. The prez isn't really a character. She's meant to be a plot device to draw the actual love interests together. The premise is "girl A is obsessed with girl C and through shenanigans, her sister girl B falls in love with her." Girl C (prez) is not important as a character. She doesn't need screentime. The point is for the other girls to fall in love in a unique premise. I don't know why everyone's hating this so much. I think it's cute.

I love this so much. It's definitely a story that makes more sense when you binge it all in one sitting (but you'll question Akiho's long periods of absence). I used to keep up with it as chapters came out when it first came to Dynasty, but stopped reading when I lost track of what was happening. Just reread the entire thing and caught up and it makes a lot more sense. The chapters are bite-sized but a lot happens. There's a lot of complex internal conflicts happening with all the characters and Nakano develops quite a bit over the chapters, but I think you miss a lot of it when you're reading 8 pages at a time, several months apart. As a binge, though, I think this story's really awesome. After finishing An Easy Introduction to Love Triangles, I've had a hankering for polyamory and this is getting dangerously close to scratching that itch. It feels really communal with all these sexually active lesbians livings to close together. Nakano is a great magnet to bring them all together, too. Now added to my favorites!

I was grinning so big during the vol3 bonus chapter. They're so cute, I can't handle them! The way Kashikaze does chibis is so hecking adorable, too. Watching the girls fidget is too good >.<

Request to mark this series as dropped. New chapters exist in Japanese but haven't been translated and apparently no scanlation team is currently working on it. "Ongoing" seems a bit disingenuous.

I don't know what Jisoo and Hwayeon see in her since she's so annoying.

Probably just get wet over the gap moe between her dashing bifauxnen looks and mega awks social disaster character? o3o

Maybe they're morosexual XD
