Why do women let themselves get tangled up with married men!? It's not like there is a damn shortage of single men.

Nya-chan posted:

Because some women like the thrill of it, or "taking a man from another woman" reinforces their self-confidence about being better than others.

Or because not all women seek commitment (or are already committed) and having a married man is a way to lessen the possibility of him sticking to her.

Or because he seduced her and she hopes he will leave his wife for her.

There's plenty of valid reasons. But someone is probably bound to be hurt.

johnb posted:

I'm not sure I'd call any of those reasons valid.

They're definitely not valid to me, but this is what we got. I don't care what the rationale is, but I don't think it's going to be explained either.

And I don't think the guy is more wrong than the girl or vice versa. Both know he's cheating and are complicit in it. (Someone suggested that the partner might be okay with it, but given how the girl -- whose name I do not remember -- worries about what she and the manager can and cannot do even in private, I doubt they have the wife's blessing.)

Didn't like this chapter. From a narrative perspective, the girl's introspection and the ring panel in the beginning were well done, but then the date sequence was just meh.

I look forward to the day there will be enough ongoing mature yuri series that I don't feel compelled to read -- or watch -- cheating-centric narratives.

re Nya-chan:

"You're a girl, act like it!"

Uuh... how about she acts the way she feels more comfortable with?

Chidori, why you so controlling?

I got the as a girl bit, but I didn't care for this delivery either. Hoping to be able to wipe this from my mind. :/

I don't get the sentiments that readers are supposed to see one group or any character as ugly. To me, those are just prejudices and insecurities voiced by the various characters. We're not meant to believe them but maybe just to believe that Kurokawa and others have assimilated those views.

I have zero tolerance for bullying, so I'd like to see the redemption theme pushed further with Fujishiro; however, I agree with others that its already more believable and respectable than what we usually see in manga of this genre. No one's perfect. Kudos to the author for not having her magically lose her brash ways.

I personally prefer to be around people who speak their minds, even if what they say isn't always "nice" by societal norms. But there's a difference between being frank and bullying. (I like Fujishiro's character until I revisit the first chapter.)

On a different note, Kurokawa's character was extra pathetic this chap. Hopefully the next update does something for her while also giving some sign of plot development. Sheesh. At least the panels still look good.

I like that the "comforting" wasn't intentional, so the characters are getting (marginally) better. Hopefully by the end we've had a nice feel-good story.

P.S. Hmm... I've kept up with Citrus. The ending is looking to be fantastic. (<-- sarcasm) I'm still going to miss it because it's linked to Fluttering Feelings in my head (heart) due to timing. ... (ಥ﹏ಥ) ...Point is I have yet to find a new bar for good yuri, personally. I'm reading whatever's not off putting.

Yeah, let's just forget all about the assault and be friends. ( --- __ --- )

This lead girl...

All the chapters feel so cheap right now.

Ugh. Terrible protagonist, cringe-y opening chapter. But I like the art. :|

Hmm. Interesting.

The assault incident still really bothers me, but I hope the story reintegrates it later. The lack of acknowledgement by the girls could be explained later, but it would be hard for me to accept any "excuses" if Kohane ends up with Aoi -- however "broken" Aoi's character is presented.

I like the art and dystopian feel, but I do hope we get some clarity or concrete developments soon. There's too much vague right now. I feel like I'll have to read this one a book at a time in order to just...keep caring.

How is that a foiled attempt? I have 0 care for the Aoi character after that. Brat to rapist brat.

Good chapter. I'm smelling a satisfying (acceptable) yet bitter sweet ending.

Woah! negative energy???

I guess I kind of approached this update as a random side story because I didn't recognize the girl. I thought it was pretty well done. I liked how the episode came full cycle, and I really felt at the end.

I thought the girl's handling of the bullying situation was pretty silly (as others have mentioned), but it didn't seem an important detail. Was all about feelings to me.

Even now I can only vaguely recall the "rival" thread. This new character hasn't really registered with me yet. I'll acknowledge it if it leads to stupid stuff happenning. The girl seems blah so far. Just filler. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm looking forward to the next update.

Not looking forward to the depressing bits, but I'm a sucker for the art style. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
