I thought it was pretty annoying too until the second last panel on https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuri_natsu_kagaya_inn_ch34#5, then I realized Nazuki isn't really being forced into anything, and the story hasn't lost its lighthearted nature.

But those eyes annoy the hell outta me

That panel was supposed to be the punchline of the entire chapter. The way I saw this one:

Black eyed girl is being completely unreasonable, and Nazuki is mentally rolling her eyes the whole time. Finally weird girl makes a ridiculous demand, and Nazuki decides to say "whatever" and just do it because she wants the kiss. This is not a serious situation and I think people either misunderstood or overreacted to the power dynamic between them.

Has the author already drawn them making out?

Very silly story. Ending wasn't bad.

Who's thinking in all the black boxes? Why were they ambushing her? What happened to the other person who ambushed her? What sport was she doing in the beginning? Why, what, how, why?

This isn't subtext. This is just flat out text.

My favorite is still probably Secret Recipe, simply because of Wakatsuki's progress from popular girl who manipulates boys and feels pity for the unpopular little girl in the baking club to washing her hair in the janitor's closet because she's anguishing over that same girl. It's also the best "table-turner" yuri manga ever :)

I want to agree with you here because I love The Secret Recipe too, but for the record, Wakatsuki doesn't manipulate boys, she just has an easy time getting asked out by boys she thinks she likes. And she never pities the president. She crushes hard on her from the start, and kisses her in the first chapter because she's quitting the club over it and wants to have one first and last intimate moment with her.

Wow I actually wrote "he"? Must have been tired when I wrote that comment.

They were making a joke because "concrit" isn't a word, at least not an English one. Most likely a typo, so they were wondering what word you actually meant to type.

I guess he just didn't consider that people might not understand "concrit" as shorthand for "constructive criticism."

^I look forward to your posts, your writing is always pleasant and nice, no matter the content.

It looks like I might be going back to college again, if this program accepts me. I don't entirely regret dropping out initially, but I just don't see people most of the time, and I can't meet new people either. My high school friends seem to have finally lost patience with me. They went to a party without me on New Years Eve, and just put a photo up on Facebook with the caption "Squad reunited," minus one member of that so-called squad. The only thing I look forward to is weightlifting, but my knee is injured and taking an eternity to heal.

Sorry for all the complaining. I'll try to come up with something better to talk about later.

Do you have any examples of stories where the older teacher takes the lead and tries to seduce a student, that's not super creepy?

No, that's pretty much impossible. I meant the other way, at least in the stories on this site, seems to create effective romances.

This is totally safe for work, but only if your boss ships them.

On one hand, I fully agree that the whole "aggressive student hitting on her insecure, sexually frustrated teacher" thing is
getting a bit overdone. On the other hand, doing it that way is kind of necessary if you want to do a teacher/student story, because the alternative is pretty much to have an adult taking advantage of a child, which is just creepy.

The funny thing is the former dynamic seems to almost always result in a good story, even though there's so many ways it could be done wrong.

So she got over the whole "I can only love you if you don't love me back" thing?

I'm at ch. 6's ending and I'm salty about the guy's death and HOW STUPID IS THAT WOMAN? Jesus Christ, it's either stupidity or she's some baddy working with the other guy and really, I'm leaning more towards stupidity. She kills him because they lack the resources for long term containment? Yeah, sure, but how stupid are you supposed to be when there's something else that's going on here and you just kill the only evidence that you have? A hero's just been turned into a monster, how bout you freaking find out who did that to him first before offing him like some horse with a lame leg! How the hell did this bitch go up the ranks? Most likely kissing someone's ass or nepotism if you ask me.

I despised her for doing that when I first read that chapter. For real, I was seething with anger. But keep reading, and your feelings on her might change.

I like this series, but I mostly only go back to the beginning chapters, which are are classic in my opinion. The whole thing goes on a little too long, but in particular I hate how the the cross dressing guy gets treated, it makes me feel a little sick. I liked Azusa, she was darling.

The anime is very underrated. It may not be complete, but it lacks most of the iffy parts from the manga. It's also well directed and animated, and has a moving soundtrack

Love the setup. Yuri's design is adorable, and you can already tell Kamome's going to be an absolute blast

I'm liking it so far. One part that felt fresh to me was Ena's receptiveness after she was kissed. In a lot of other manga, characters freak out in that situation and stop the romantic momentum dead in its tracks.

There's definitely something going on between these two. I think the tags should stay as is.

KKL MC: Child in an adult's body.

Octave MC: Very functional, with some noticeable personality flaws.

Someone who's rejected your confession multiple times over several years, suddenly realizing not only that they're into girls, but also that they're in love with you, is so incredibly unlikely that I can only see it as contrived.

I'm pretty sure it was explained that she also liked her back but was too afraid to act on her feelings, so she rejected her instead because being homo is wrong, but after MC tried hard enough she changed her mind. Whatever or not author had it in mind from the beginning is another story, but it wasn't that she suddenly realized it. And if you are going to say she wouldn't do it, that is exactly the same thing girl in Girl x Girl x Boy did.

I know it was a "loved her all along" deal, and I'm sure the author planned it. Doesn't change the way I feel about it. Also I want to re-emphasize that I like KKL a lot and I've reread it a bunch of times, but certain aspects continue to bother me.
Also brb reading Girl x Girl x Boy for the first time.

Doesn't change the fact that she kept her around for weeks/months willingly, nor the fact that she was aware MC wasn't over her past love and still decided to date. Sure, she might not control whether or not she likes MC, but she knew well exactly where she was going into. And no, I never said she deserved to be heartbroken, just that I find it hard to feel bad for her. Sure it sucks, but it's not like she has no responsability for her own suffering.

Love often makes you act like this, unfortunately. I totally feel bad for people in that situation, but that's just me.
