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.

God I fucking hate her. It feels like she's single-handedly responsible for Tsubaki's terrible self esteem with her constant needless cruelty.

Eh, single target sexuality may be my least favorite trope in yuri

This reads less like single target sexuality and more like Ookuma being dense and a sap.

Is it bad that I officially like the new couple more than the main one?

Yeah Iori kinda turned into a dick as things went on, I'm much more interested in the dumb video game dweebs.

plot twist : Rina x Sayo in the end, and the genre turned into ntr.

One of my preferred outcomes here is the MC maintaining her opposition to romance and the two love interests getting together I think that could be pretty interesting.

Yeah Tei is so pitiful that people being mean to her isn't even funny it just makes me like them less. Be nice to Tei she is just lonely!

I can't help thinking the author really loved Elfen Lied and thought, "how can I make this into a yuri comedy?"

"Love Vectors"

Bet you can't get that image out of your head now. You're welcome.

Jokes on you, I haven’t even seen it so ha!

Same

For those who haven't seen it. Just...don't.

Shouldn't have said that now I'm curious lol

If you want to see young girls get physically and emotionally brutalized then it sure is the manga/anime for you otherwise I'd steer clear.

Okay, read through a bit of the novel. ...I don't really like it? It's very dialogue-heavy, and paced pretty slowly. Our main couple doesn't have much in the way of chemistry, unless that's coming later

I think that's part of what makes it great. This isn't a "these two girls immediately fell in love and start making out/fucking like rabbits" kind of story. This is a story about two girls exploring magical science and navigating some thorny political and interpersonal issues, and slowly growing closer together as they do so. This isn't a story about yuri romance, it's a story that happens to include yuri romance in it.

That'd be fine if the magic science and politics were handled engagingly, but I've found most of it fairly tedious. Every scene feels at least twice as long as it needs to be

Well I suspect a manga adaptation will abridge a fair amount of that just due to the limitations of the medium in terms of word count.

Seems like angry twin has a crush on the nurse, though unfortunately for her it seems completely one-sided.

Justice.
