this gag manga has some of the best emotional realism I've ever seen

Spoiler tags, bro

An Ogino Jun doujin that doesn't have unnecessary drama?!?!?!

Ironic since the main series quite literally is a psychological drama about a girl who murdered her abusive father, effectively ran from home, and trying to live a new life while constantly feeling immense extraordinary guilt about what she did. If the series ever ends up on Dynasty (which is should, tbh), it prolly will generate a ton of drama, tbh.

I ended up reading Bones of an Invisible Person. What an amazing series, easily Ogino's best (that I've read so far)

This is a lot more tightly written than a lot of other mystery series. The more you learn, the more things actually make sense. Contrast with something like Death Note, where it's more about seeing how much random bullshit the author can throw at you to keep you distracted (sorry to people who like that series, I loved it when I was younger but coming back to it makes you realize that it's really dumb)

I actually cried reading this chapter. It’s similar to conversations I’ve had with my gf. I ran over and hugged her right after reading it lol.

I have had a lot of struggles with mental health and I’ve been in the position of telling my partner that if the worst happens I would want her to find happiness without me. It’s such a gift to be able to have someone who makes you want to stick around.

I’m really sad this manga is ending. Please take care of yourselves and treasure your loved ones

What a title!

I've read that some of the big yuri artists, like Mira, Ayanero Taicho, and Morishima Akiko are actually straight women, interestingly enough. Mira apparently even has a husband and kids, too. If this is true and not just some made up rumour, what that shows is something that's been said for a long time, which is that the Yuri genre really is one that kind of transcends gender and sexuality, for all to enjoy

Can I please get a source on this?

This got a lot better once it got past the premise

This is the perfect example of a series that didn’t need there to be an explicit confirmation of romantic feelings and still works perfectly. I think people have gotten used to modern yuri of the last 5-ish years that deal with actual romantic relationships, and I’m really glad we have more of that now, but for most of its history yuri hasn’t been a one-to-one equivalent with "lesbianism." I read yuri because I like seeing stories that explore intimacy between girls, a quality of which is oftentimes its ambiguity and uncertain nature.

This series accomplished exactly what it set out to do and it did so beautifully. I don’t feel any sense of disappointment. I don’t begrudge people for wanting something specific from the manga they read, but I feel like you’re setting yourself up for disappointment. I think a lot of readers would benefit from learning to appreciate different kinds of stories.
