That dude definitely doesn't deserve a lover.

This manga became so much more fun when I stopped reading it myself and started just reading people's reactions to it.

I don't know, I do think Subaru is right that it kind of sucks ass for Asahi to use making sacrifices for her as an excuse to just not care about herself at all and make no effort towards her own happiness and dump the burden of feeling responsible for that onto a kid. Everything Asahi does revolves around Subaru and she's staked her entire identity on that and it must be a source of pretty major guilt that she's the reason her sister refuses to have anything for herself.

Sure, but the way she specifically used college as a way to make this point is incredibly dumb and childish. I'd hardly call it some unusual sacrifice for her to want her younger sister to go to college, that's normal.

It's not actually about college, paying for college is just the only sacrifice she can actually stop Asahi from making to make her point. I wouldn't be at all surprised if she rescinded her refusal as soon as Asahi started making herself a priority.

I think the fact that it's college is important, and part of why this is the last straw for her. Subaru's graduation from high school is the first real chance she has to free Asahi from looking after her, and thus free herself from her guilt for dominating her sister's life. Going to university full time is committing to spending four more years as a dependent. And I think letting Asahi support her while she goes to college would really intensify her guilt, because then she'd be enjoying a privilege that Asahi herself had to give up.

That's a good point, I can definitely see that being the case.

I guess I get where she's coming from, but I did not like Subaru's behavior this chapter, obviously characters are allowed to act out, but the manga seems to be portraying her as correct in some way, but she's just not this time.

Huh. The girl reminds me of the class pres from Fight Class 3. I wonder if she was an inspiration. I could certainly see Tatsubon being a fan of that series.

Also, do people still have physical porn stashes? I feel like someone needs to hear a song from Avenue Q.

I'd think most people's porn stash is digital in this day and age.

Dynasty: Noah: "What the hell is this?"
Mangadex: "OMG such wholesome yuri poly! I have two wives!"

Maybe because it isn't exactly the same peoples who read it. Here, it's mostly a yuri mangas site and Mangadex is more general. Also, i don't had time to read all comments but i would believe some will just be peoples making fun of yuri fans because it end up PolyBi instead of Yuri and by making fun, i mean insult them and taunt them in rude way with F*g and all.

Yeah MangaDex is kind of a shithole in terms of the comment section because it's a general manga site and general manga fans suck.

Yeah, my main problem with the prince isn't even that he's a dude it's that he's just kind of a cardboard cutout that is also present.

I'm not even reading this anymore I just come to the comments to see if I can figure out what is going on from people's reactions at this point because it's more interesting than the actual manga.

This manga was cute at times, but to be honest I didn't think it was all that great, it's sense of humor is a bit too silly and irreverent, and it ultimately didn't have anything strong enough in the plot to really drag me in. Good art though.

Same. For me, there were only a few chapters that made sense or had a good feel to them. It seemed rushed or nonsensical. This could've worked as a 3 chapter short series. A one-shot even. But 13 chapters ... with a meh ending. shrug Really, it overall could've been a lot better.

"Rushed or nonsensical" is kind of Mochi's brand but it's a lot easier to overlook when the art isn't leaps and bounds better than the writing (though even then I stopped reading Mochi's other stuff a while ago for this reason).

Yeah "MC overcomes the totally existent pressure to not be traditionally feminine in order to be traditionally feminine" is not really the stirring coming of age tale it keeps being portrayed as.

Im surprised a moody introverted sour bitch like Hiiragi is popular in school

only in anime/manga

Yeah my reaction to that was essentially "are we talking about the same selfish asshole?"

I just don't have any patience left for these time-skip endings. A time-skip epilogue? Sure, but I'm so tired of these borderline form letter endings where one person leaves for X period of time and then the last chapter is their reunion.

I've just resigned myself to the fact that this site kind of sucks and only cares about accurate tagging when it comes to fetishes and not when it comes to, you know, people's desire to not read fucked up shit because you gotta maintain that shock value. I doubt it will change anytime soon because that's just the priorities of the management so your best bet is to read the comments on pretty much everything that isn't a chapter of an ongoing work first.

Because there is peoples who like twist. If we tag too much then there is no twist, therefore no surprise. It's better to keep such twist hide. The solution will be to have some kind of spoilers tags where some tags are uner spoilers, so peoples who want to know can check it and those who want to read without knowing the twist, can too.

I consider twists less important than not triggering people with surprise rape/incest/violence especially since most twists are lazy bullshit anyway.

Really wish Sal Jiang's first series was the other kind of story they write because this is wild even as far as their "one or both of the leads are psychopaths" kind goes.

I think it's more "You should include your partner in major decisions even if it's just informing them you're making them." Being blindsided with stuff can make your partner feel like you just can't be bothered to include them in your life.

The thing is, they're different people so their opinion of what's major or not is different, and that's one of the point of this one shot too, you can clearly see her confused face in page 03 because it wasn't a big deal for her, nothing to worry about... And that's normal, friction like that will happen a lot in a relationship because we can't shape our lovers and there isn't a perfect one who would always do things within our expectations, they'll inevitably show up with surprises from time to time, good or bad.

If you're thinking "she should've know better" then what you're asking is a perfect lover, one who would never do anything wrong in any way or form.

It really really doesn't take a perfect partner to recognize that a permanent change to your body is something that they may think is important. This is by no means an unreasonable standard. She just comes off as a clueless moron who doesn't know her partner (or rudimentary societal norms) tbh.

This is one of those series I'm interested in but I'm going to wait to see how it ends before I get invested in it.

I was already pretty on the fence about this series but this is just tedious at this point.

People have forgotten what wholesome means because it sure doesn't mean exploiting poor people for sex.

Hime's ending is... I dunno. Fine, I guess. I was more or less expecting it. What I wasn't expecting, even from this manga, was for Akira to be given exactly one frame of epilogue, and then getting defined by her hopes for someone else's kid. Like, what the fuck? Okay, so she became a stylist. I guess I can see it, though I'm not sure it lines up with... anything... she ever did or said in the story. But, fine, whatever, your job doesn't have to be a poetic culmination of your character arc. So what has she done with her life? What has she done, in the intervening years? How has she been affected by the story?

...Nothing? She's a beautician? That's it? That's all we get? About a character who was more central to the story than the ostensible protagonist? Really? She just went on existing as a foil for other people to have character development through, huh? That's all she ever was, I guess. I should have seen it coming.

Yeah, I'm completely unsuprised that Akira got shunted to the side because this entire manga isn't about trans people it's about how trans people existing affects the cis people around them.
