Even harder sci-fi stories where time travel is the main point generally don't agree on how it works. In a story like this, the author just threw in time travel for a fun setting and will certainly reveal random bullshit rules as necessary to advance the plot, which is as good a method as any. Anyone who tells you they know how time travel works is a liar, so might as well just make up the rules to suit the story.
And what a lovely story it is!
I have read ahead, so you might consider it a spoiler. This is not a spoiler, though, but speculation, since none on future chapters confirm any of it. I'm still putting it on spoiler bars: There's a chance the time travel thing is a lie, actually. She clearly looks like a stalker, and she might have said it as a way to approach the girl she likes.
This was one of two stories on Yuri Hime that had no hint of yuri at all in the chapters.
The other story ended this month, and guess what?! The end was not yuri
Out of curiosity, what's that other story called? I mean, I'll keep reading this even if it never becomes yuri 'cause I love fighting games and games in general, but, yeah, I probably won't do the same for that other thing.
Anyone who went through the Kakegurui manga know of its been followed closely? Only part I read was vol6 for the yuri. Think that volume might get animated?
Pretty damn close to a 1:1 adaptation so far. Based on the OP, they'll probably reach that yuri arc.
Edit: I went to re-check the manga chapters, the yuri arc starts from ch 29. So far, they adapted 4.5 chaps into 3 eps. There are 12 in total this season, so they might only adapt up to the idol girl's arc or the glasses dude's arc. So the yuri arc might have to wait till S2, assuming this does get a S2 which I think is likely.
A scene of that arc is in the opening. They rarely put things on opening that's not on the show itself. Like, almost never.
So they might rush and skip stuff soon to get to it.
That or the show'll have more than 12 episodes actually, although that would mean that scene would appear on the second opening, so it's unlikely.
It's currently at 9 chapters (including this month's YH issue) and ongoing. There is always a chance... ;D
And there's not that many good super gay manga out there, so if there's a good one with subtext, I guess it'll have to do. x)
(An upcoming project of ours is both gay and hilarious, though. Sakura Nadeshiko for anyone interested in looking it up.)
Heh. Looked it up and I don't think it'll be well received here. Unless there's something I'm missing.
To those that have read ahead, how is the yuri levels? I can't trust Dynasty's tagging system anymore since it seems they arbitrarily and inconsistently decide what is subtext and what is yuri anymore (fighting gamer Manga is yuri, Knight sports Manga is yuri, but she gets girls everyday is subtext, etc)
It's clearly yuri. More than that fighting gamer Manga that's not even subtext. I think staff should tag mangas for more consistency, or at least get rid of yuri and subtext tag and keep just the "het" one to warn.
Later a yandere-like (not really, though) girl is clearly in love with Hime.
Hime's past reveals why she wants to marry a millionaire and shows connection to another character. It's a pretty good chapter, and it'll be hard not to evolve from there.
In short, it's one of the best manga on YH right now. And not in a "for a yuri hime manga" way. It's really a good title.
would be ok if it wasn't set in a fetish cafe with dopey males, lmao
Later chapters start to show female clients as well. Yeah, it was a bad idea having only male. The author probably realized it.
It's practicallyconfirmed there will be a web manga based on the characters, but it sounds like it will start fresh.
Well, there's a pixiv series getting a tank by YH this month, but it's pretty much the same story as the pixiv one.
Although it has a more common format. It would at least be hard to put those small single pages on a tank.
Love triangles, drama, het? Are we really going to be this traumatized forever, c'mon guys the yuri landscape is not -that- bad.
The problem is when an author try to change the genre they started. This is already a series. Maybe this one will be on Yuri Hime Pixiv, since the name of the author was on the list, so it has even the chance of getting a tank in the future. Some flashback of their past would be nice, but I don't think it should change the format more than that.
I'd love for this to be a full series, starting from when Okabe and Yuria first meet.
So they could put a lot of unnecessary drama, love triangles, maybe threatening with het? A comedy series could work. But most authors usually lose track of what they want to do when making a more serious story.
Centaur's worries first episode was great. Really solid adaptation and they really amped the yuri. I like that they use the yuri side couple in opening. In general the series treats it as a normal thing, but it's great to see them being treat equally with other couples in opening.
Well, there's like, two yuri couples on the OP and one het couple.
And as far as I remember, that het couple are background characters in the manga that don't even have names. So I'm more suprised about them being there.
Oh yeah, there's also that het couple with unrequited love.
This manga actually follows the way the episodes are named in the anime. They were always: "we ended up...*something*". In japanese it was some verbちゃった (chatta). Chatta meaning "we did something completely".
Then the manga is キスしちゃった (kisushichatta)
It's also taboo because of the social imbalances and messiness of dating family, but that's the same if you're blood-related or adopted family. (Some of that doesn't apply for step-family though, but a break-up can still be messy.)
Anyways, incest is some people's thing, seemingly including Mochi Au Lait, so... that's why it is what it is, basically.
That would apply to a lot of manga here, though. Even some loved ones like Dear My Teacher.
By the way, incest was pretty common on Japan until recently, and they just stopped doing it because it was fucking their genetic code. As consequence, japanese people are more vulnerable to a lot of diseases.
And that explain why so much anime and manga deals with incest, I guess.
Uh no. We have already plenty of stories with sisters-who-aren't-really-sisters, but it's still taboo for them to be in love and the way they relate to each other is not necessarily linked to their blood relation.
The basic plot wouldn't suffer that much if they weren't related by blood. Just the fact that they were raised together is enough.
And by the way, this story doesn't even really address the taboo. It stays comedic. Which is fine, but then what's the point of making them blood related? If there's an elephant in the room, I usually expect the author to address it at some point.
The fact that they are blood related adds a potential to the story that isn't realized.
But if this story satisfies you the way it is, you do you as well.
They're both girls. They being blood related or not isn't a issue at all.
Incest is taboo because of offspring.
Come on! Wtv said in the spoiler text earlier that there was some fairly obvious subtext already and it's only 8 chapters in.
I said one scene. One scene in 8 chapter hardly should be considered subtext. We have a lot of more in less in any MTK show.
Anyway, I'm not the one calling it queerbaiting. I wouldn't say that for a lot of reasons and don't think it's yuri, but okay, it's not het either. That's not why I dislike it, though. This is just a bad "sports" manga.
To begin with, yeah, I can't take "e-sports" seriously. I don't know how they could do it interesting and this title sure as hell isn't showing me. What they do here would be considered bad in any sports manga, because we have 8...8 full chapters of exposition. Yes, in each of these 8 chatpers they give a full tutorial about frame, dash, blocking, canceling, any little thing about fighting game. This is just bad storytelling.
Think about it. Imagine Saki, or any sport anime, for that matter, where they spend hundreds and hundreds of pages explaining the technical part of that sport. Its rules, its strategies. There's a reason no one does that. Sport manga should be fun, not educational. We don't want to learn about the sport while reading it, we want it to be emotional. But here we have pretty much a fighting game manual, instead of an actual manga.
Well, you'll probably see it once more chapters are translated. And you'll see why it's hard to put any yuri inside of a story that's not even trying to work with their characters to begin with.
Queer baiting? Queer baiting.
Good to know I won't have to expect something then.
...it's at 3 published chapters right now. Are you people wasting your supernatural oracle talents to look into the future and see how ongoing yuri series end or are you just taking the piss because you're jaded and want to sound smart? No yuri marriage with science baby in 3 chapters? Fucking dropped!
