Psychologists CAN'T prescribe drugs. Psychiatrists can, because they're doctors. That doesn't mean psychologists are fake, psychotherapy is a pretty robust discipline for being so young and it's demand is actually quite high, and good psychology education does provide a surface-level understanding of neurology.
On topic, Asakura's emotions seem to complicate the plot... lol
Some context: This artist was popular for drawing a lot of "Hata-tan", which was the name for an emo/depressed version of Hatate
The author's storyline regarding these two is that Hatate looks up to/likes Aya, but the latter wont give her the time of day, and verbally berates her. There was also some stuff with Momiji? But I dont remember haha
I used to read their stuff a lot maany years back surprised this arrived here just now!
This feels organic, like something two young people experimenting with their sexuality would do and it's not super exaggerated.
I was about to comment the same thing!
A lot of people judge on content like this, but since most people masturbate or have sexual experiences at a young age, this kind of content can feel even... nostalgic? That's not the right wrong, but y'all probably understand.
Of course, there's the gaze issue and all, but Im just gonna go ahead and imagine this as a fictionalized personal experience that could have happened lol
I can't believe I never read this. This is easily one of the best works on Dynasty.
The art is absolutely marvelous, at some point I was internally screaming in jealousy, like "do you just wanna brag that you can draw hands and feet in any position/perspective and draw them perfectly!?". It was very exhausting, I assure you lol
I really like the story, though I didn't like the way the storyline just kept rethreading itself. I feel like it could have done without one or two of the many complications the main characters face (and I mean the menial stuff, like losing/gaining money/a car) It just feels a bit aimless, is all.
That said, the dialogue is definitely on point. You can even feel the weight the translators put behind every choice of word, and I'm sure it wasn't an easy task, so thanks!! Each and every line of dialogue felt very deliberate, and it reveals a tiny portion of the each character's mindset one at a time. This story could be just dialogue, no pictures and no prose, and it'd still be an incredibly interesting story.
I will also say that the Letterboxd reviews for the movie are all extremely biased because of the inclusion of the sex scene with Rei and the man at the train station, which just feels like an overreaction. All of the top reviews say stuff like "you can tell this is a movie about wlw directed by a man," but fail to mention the fact that the mangaka is a woman lol.
About this, it may just be that the reviewers feel the framing of the movie is male gaze-y. It kind of reminds me of the movie adaptation of "Blue is the warmest color", also a comic written by a woman, but the movie (despite having scenes that were lifted straight from the comic) was directed by a man and it just... well, felt very male gaze-y, so much so that the author even had to comment on it. Framing is everything, after all.
So cuute <3
I've never seen Index, only Railgun, so I often wondered why the hell I should care about Spiky-Hair-mcTypicalAnimeGuy. When Kuroko and Misaka are serious about their relationship it's so heartfelt <3
I don't like it at all that the mother who is a whore and practically left his daughter at the mercy of a degenerate has a happy and satisfying life while the other mother has a somewhat miserable life, she is doing what is best for her daughter, there is nothing wrong with that.
I've been laughing at this exchange for far too long www
I have no other words. That was excellently put.
at this point I just want TongTong and Xiao Lu to be happy, just give me that and I'll be satisfied with whatevs ;w;
It's odd to see a woman call herself "ore" in a non-shounen or fantasy setting! But I like it. If I ever went to Japan to work/live, I'd probably be pressured into using "watashi" in most social contexts, but I honestly feel much more comfortable using "boku". (even if it might be a social faux pas)
Isn't it nice that japanese has so many pronouns that you can use to better express your gender? =w=
Um, the rule of thumb about this sort of porn is that the underage must looks *unrealisitc" in order to pass the law. The Japanese certainly has its own sort of laws and loopholes.
I am not sure what to say; great art. It should be classified as Loli. Just because the pedo dipicted here is a female does not change the fact that the child has been groomed. Yes, I have my fair share of reading porn....I just wonder why this piece is on the website. However, no matter how you look at it. it is also a Yuri.
Since this is fiction, you can just imagine the story is set in a world in which children are not like our children, their brains are advanced and they are capable of goal-driven sexual behaviour, that way you can also imagine that this child /hasnt/ been groomed. Sometimes it's impossible to do this, particularly if you're a csa, or if you've a personal close story with the subject, but it sure does help to enjoy works like this when that's not the case.
It's important to remember that only you can oversee, approve of and change your own personal interactions and dynamics with fictions, and no one can judge you for your inner thought processes, specially fantasies.
