This was surprisingly MUCH better than I thought it would be!!?

I did not expect a hentai doujin to be the first good characterization I've seen of the niji girls...

Just popping in here to say I appreciate the lack of spoiler tagging. The twist is brutal but it's very easy to tell that something is Off from early on so I wasn't completely whiplashed by it. A drama tag was appropriate without being a spoiler. Thanks!

Oh how disappointing

Whelp, that seems to be the end... with all those references to classic literature, that’s the end to me.

This deserves to be reread to get the full flavor again. The artwork has improved a lot from start to finish. It looks like two morons are made for each other by raising the brat together. It’s good to see one deciding to move on in her life. This is a good story to me, I’ll reread again later.

There are six volumes, so as climatic as this chapter was, we've still 2 volumes yet before they reach their final destinations ...

Hahah when you don't want to third wheel your main character, just make a polyam ending ;) love it

Don't let your dreams be dreams, Iwami-sensei

Apparently there are 7 volumes of this series out already ?

If it continues to get translated this has gotta be one reeeally slow burn.

Ok so did Uta confess in chapter 14 and we just didnt see it?

Or was Kauro actually awake enough to remember when Uta kissed her way back in chapter 5 ( https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/my_unrequited_love_ch05#21 ) and she is now putting 2 and 2 together ?

Hmm.

Now THIS is the good stuff.

That was great, thank you.

This was a sneaky way to romanticize rape

I vote against tags which spoil. In this case it ruins a huge part of the emotional delivery of the story.

Something I thought about too. I'll remove Tragedy for now, but mods can decide later whether to reinstate that.

Thanks, by the time I saw this it was removed and it made for a really nice emotional impact at the end. I found myself going back and re-reading pages looking for the hints Takemiya-sensei left, with strangely cathartic enjoyment.

But all in all I can't relate to the overall message of running away if you're dying. A dog or a cat might do that to find a place to die, but isn't it kind of your duty as a human being to bury your friends, companions and family or at least to be there to "bear witness"?

It sucks, but I kind of get it. She probably had family/friends to help her with that process, but she didn't want wrap up her girlfriend into it because that's one hell of a commitment and a lot of emotional baggage. So she chose to let her go.

Who knows which is better, but she at least made a choice on the matter.

Hah, that was great. The ambiguity at the end was perfect. They're both bad people but idc I loved this.

I love that people are getting into it in the discussion on this one, but honestly I don't get the vibe that the author has any well thought out intentions with this one. It just feels like they wanted to do a "cute, but with a twist!" nonsense story. Time will tell, I guess.

I love it so far. it's kinda like that one about the girl who slept with the dj from the club and ends up following her around. I forgot the name. That one's better/more complex, but I can see this one going places.

After Hours, I believe it was called, though I don't think it gets uploaded here anymore for some reason.

That's correct. It got licensed, and I think I remember seeing that Dynasty got a cease and desist on it. Maybe not an actual C&D, but the effect is the same. I plan on buying the first volume when I get the money.

Yeah the first translated volume is out as of june, though still no word on a volume 2... regardless, this manhwa is nothing like after hours, pretty sure it doesn't delve into any music scene stuff at all ? At least for the first twenty-odd chapters ..

The first three chapters were okay I guess, but the "hey we're all gay lets be friends" ending was great

Bless this series, this is the love live poly content I've been wanting. So cute! Ahh!! I'm surprised it slipped under my radar for so long.

Gosh, I want to like this but tbh I have no idea what is going on. I know that has to partly due to a poor translation, but I cant even begin to find a thread of chronological story telling to follow, everything seems so out of place.

Oh the ending was so cute! I was very worried from how it started but what a nice surprise.

Gosh, Karuha you're killing it. What a wonderful doujin with beautiful, beautiful art.

I feel like the vacation setting was a nice way to explore nico & maki with their guards down. Getting to see the characters interact without their constant tsundere masks generated such a relaxed and heartwarming story.

Yeahh I figured she wasn't actually her ex. I just couldn't expect Morinaga Milk to be bold enough to write an already established lesbian character.

I don't remember much from this series but apparently everyone is gay? No complaints here, that was super cute.
