I only realized after reading it that "Lulu Yeah" is meant to be a pun on "R'lyeh".

Damn real galaxy brain hour on this one, I love it

Yup.

Welcome to the amazing world of fiction, where real world issues don't matter squat.

Sure but when that's your standard, "it's not supposed to be realistic" or has little to nothing to say beyond "isn't this hot", you're inviting the (unfavorable) comparisons to porn stated upthread.

Hardly the end of the world, but time spent reading this is time not spent reading actual porn.

Aaand just as expected. sigh

You were the one who brought moderators into this so I'm not sure what you expected

I wouldn't take a moment's hesitation to render the last part as just "(Unless...)" but that's me and my idiosyncrasies at it again

So this is the porn version of "no way I can have a lover" from what I'm getting here

There wasn't much here and a lot of what there was utterly sucked.

So editor-lady would have asked her out if she hadn't thought Sakuma was straight. Oops!

I might have enjoyed this more if it wasn't so easy to compare with the story Shuninta is doing which is nearly the same concept but with more room to breathe narratively. This was OK but I just don't like it as much

Character says she doesn't know how to communicate with her dress but I think a flannel buttondown means "I want to get naked next to my hot coworker" in a few dialects

Usually with a lot of art it's easy to tell when the localizers have reversed the art to fit a more natural reading style for the communities buying it. I've got a couple older releases of stuff where that happened.

Mezashi's style is clean and simple enough that you don't really notice it here, which is funny in a way.

Bits of narrative convenience notwithstanding I like that these characters and their circumstances mostly feel plausible, rather than having the characters basically serving as drama elementals in service of the plot. They're dumb, yes, but dumb in a way that feels reasonable for a high schooler to be.

Why must every thread degenerate into such a shitfest over one or two people nitpicking things to get offended over every time? It's just narcissism at this point.

I know right

Why would anyone on this site take depictions of trans narratives personally

Reading a PNG? What is this, some weird chemtrail-tier paranoid conspiracy document on imgur??

My tastes are simple. I see a story with that title, I have to click on it.

loli's are girls that are grade school age. So anything middle school or above does not constitute as a loli. I'm saying love live has girls in high school so yes they are underage most of the time but they're not loli's. Also not everything tagged as loli is porn.

ah, the classic "no, you mean ephebophilia" argument

I liked...parts of it. I think there's value to the idea, but it needs more care than this.

I think the properly-considered version of this idea is basically Still Sick

Definitely seems like something whose premise comes from the write-what-you-know strategy. By which I mean the main character definitely feels closer to how the author presents herself and what she does for a living (designing and writing very character-driven stuff)
