Lol that ending line, classic.

I don't get it, but...this is still so good. More validation that we don't have an oblivious protagonist. This is so ...amazing. It's sad how ...unusual this is.

My thanks to the author. Wow...

It's such a breath of fresh air that they had a chance romantic moment, and now they're casually flirting.

This would have worked great as a full chapter.

A lot of people claiming Sayaka doesn't have all the pieces are missing crucial details like this one, I feel. Nakatani seems to be way too subtle for a lot of people with details like this.

That's a good catch. Still, Sayaka is not aware of the whole picture. She knows about Touko's weak side, and Touko's past. But there is no evidence that would suggest she knows the specifics of the relationship between Touko and Yuu, or the detailed specifics of Touko's mental hangups. Sayaka has good instincts, she did her homework on Touko's past, and she plays close attention to Touko, but she can't literally read minds, and she can't see what Touko and Yuu do when she's not around.

Goodness gracious. So in order to meet Touko's dating standards, you have to not only promise never to fall in love with her, but also have her entire brain downloaded.

I appreciate that the last image had Juna getting confessed to.

Even aside from the sex hook, this is a pretty interesting story. It's kind of a jumble of various cliches, but the characters really sell it.

Almost in spite of itself, this manga is good. The art and story are undeniably fun, especially the dancing scenes.

Wouldn't it be funny if now that the series has been downgraded to subtext, the author decided to go full text instead? It probably won't be but I can dream damnit

That's literally exactly what happened. The author has outright told the reader that catulus tend to be gay and made it extremely obvious that Yuki has a crush on Riko.

It's text.

Then why is it still tagged as Subtext?

The tag already got changed once so I guess there's a higher standard that needs to be reached before it can be changed again.

Talking glowingly to a crowd about sexually abusing a minor at your book party? Doesn't get more epic than that. Is this going for black comedy of some sort?

How about the mild twin getting together with Kokone's sister?

I like this, but when you think about it, an otherwise normal 36 year old woman having this kind of reaction to a 12 year old girl's advances is very odd.

The premise works because it's not super apparent how old a character is with the standard moe art style, so it's easy to suspend your disbelief.

Working with a class full of 17 year olds really makes this a bit of an uncomfortable read
Despite the cuteness

The story is very sweet but a little thoughtless in that sense. I find Takemiya Jin's art to be subversive and cool, but her writing to often be a little more "in the box" than I expect from that.

Alright real talk... Can we all agree how stupid that exam is? A proper exam should have the possibility that all students can pass at the same time, as well as the possibility that they all fail. Imagine if regular schools did this? you had full marks on the exam, no mistakes at all, but because someone handed in their testsheet before you did, you fail.

It's more like a tryout for a sports team than a school exam. One might wonder why the whole hierarchy thing exists at all, like why does being a witch have to be a competition? Have shounen action tropes infected the entire manga multiverse?

I tend to think Chiya's outfit is overly revealing and bit embarrassing, but here I think it looks cool and stylish.

It’s possible to interpret this series so it makes sense/bears some passing resemblance to actual human behavior.

But it’s not easy.

I disagree. Difficult people are everywhere, they just don't act that way all the time.

I don't mind the contract tbh. To me it's clearly Liz's personal way of lightening up their relationship. She's not literally declaring that Maki is her slave who can't say no and has to obey her every whim. She's making a joke acknowledging that she's a difficult and demanding person and that Maki will have to adapt to that if she wants to date her. (which she very much does)

Well done kiss regardless of their family relation. Their hair, ears, hands, eyes, and mouths all look great.

Chloe and Lillian in the background is a nice touch.

This has what I call the "Yaoi dynamic", a romance with one lover who's small and meek, and another lover who's strong and sexually intimidating.

I think the lolicon tag makes sense here, (it's clearly what the author was going for) but it begs the question of why more works on this site don't have it, for instance almost every Madoka doujin. Wouldn't this standard make Inuyasha a lolicon work?

wait is beastkin in this manga eternal loli?

In spire of all the things brought up in this discussion that surprisingly were explored in the story, I don't think we'll ever learn the answer to this.

So he's still a guy, after all. That totally makes sense... but drave me confused.

I would react different in his place. I'm a guy and I'm OK with it, but... If suddenly I woke up one morning with a female body, I think I would end assuming my new gender and actually become a girl. What does that mean? Am I some kind of agender or something?

That's not weird. A lot of people go through life without really thinking or caring about their gender and just take the path of least resistance. Even still though, I'm sure if your body was enough different from your idea of what it should be, you'd be uncomfortable.

She should have took Ap with her... Also, if Hana has her phone and photo with her, why does Ap have the phone too? Duplicated?

They're apparently not the same phone.
