For some reason it disproportionately irks me how much this tag gets misused. Probably because it has such a clear stated definition: "*Regardless of what its literal meaning is,* the actual use of the tag indicates that there is nudity."
Emphasis mine. Do people not know what "nudity" means? I see this ALL the time tagged to things that would qualify for a PG-13 rating in a movie, at worst. This isn't supposed to be a tag that gets applied based on your personal feelings about the work, it has an empirical use.
IMO "implied" nudity, or naked characters where their various bits are concealed by strategically positioned limbs/hair etc., or censored nudity where the artist just omits drawing parts that should otherwise be visible (e.g. nipples) should not qualify for this tag either. But I'm not even talking about that kind of gray area. I mean stuff where everyone's fully clothed and no naked boobs, butts, or genitals are visible getting the NSFW tag.
A tag is only useful if it's applied consistently and correctly.
I’m ace so my perspective on this may be off, but I feel like eating someone out is a step above fingering them
Except in hentai world, penetration always matters more/happens later for, I guess, phallic-centric reasons. It's usually the case in yuri h-works and lesbian JAV that oral is shown as an appetizer, and the woman will say something like "I need more" before the fingering/dildoing/strapping-on starts. Actually, a pretty high percentage of JAV lesbian scenes end with tribbing, I guess following the same assumption that unless genitals are getting smashed together, it's not fulfilling?
Doubtful she was paid anything over her hourly wage for that shoot anyway, which is exploitative in a different way.
You're projecting your own feelings into a drawing. There are certainly other ways to read that expression.
Also, she never says "no, stop, that hurts, dont leave marks," etc. If it was an issue for her, given the dynamics of their relationship as depicted, pretty sure she would have spoken up. After all, it takes some time to leave a full-body's worth of hickeys.
You can do cute vignettes in 4 page segments. Once you start trying to do drama you have to actually draw a full chapter. This manga went from a 10 to a 2.
Why don't you just read it once a month then. 12-16 pages, just like any other manga being released in standard print. Solved your problem for you. Or do you know a lot of manga being released weekly in full chapter length?
But you probably wont need that suggestion since I guess you hate this story now. 10 to 2? Because it takes more than a week to tell the arc? :eyeroll:
the fuck is this sudden toxic attitude in a relationship that was super pure and beautiful up until now :( thanks i hate it
today in "poorly aged things":
Today in "overreactions."
Jealousy and possessiveness are things even people in healthy relationships have to navigate and process. One way would be to utilize it as sex fuel, as Hinoto does here. As Haru points out, Hii-chan doesn't usually initiate. Getting a little jealous stoked her fire, Haru didnt seem to mind any part of the scene.
People's obsession with "purity" is fucking creepy.
Mitsuki misses the shot and the guy's comment surely is just meant to imply that Aya sees her through some rose-tinted glasses, not a factual statement. So I don't think there's specific indication she's particularly sporty in the first place ...
The way the scene is presented visually sure makes it seem like a graceful and ''cool'' moment, to me at least. The shot doesn't go in but everything about it screams that Mitsuki is surprisingly athletic, unless I'm reading it completely wrong.
Agreed. I read that miss as just a slight twist on the "cool, athletic" trope we've seen a million times, where the ball goes in (or more often, the volleyball spike slams for a point). Throughout the series, Mitsuki isn't being being presented as the "surprisingly perfect outsider," just surprisingly better than expected--she missed the shot, but she's not useless at the sport.
I read it the same way you guys did - not that she's a secret ringer or aloof school prince, just that Aya's able to notice things now like, "She's actually kind of tall," "She has some coordination and looks pretty cool on the court." Mitsuki's whole thing wasn't that she was a physically-bereft bookworm, it was that she just didn't want to be noticed. So whatever skills she may have at sports, or school, or whatever, she doesn't show them unless she has to.
p.55 - "Do we have anything to eat here right now?"
"Did" is the wrong tense and "again" is just not right here. I'm just guessing that the original means to convey something more like "right now."
Is English perhaps not your native language? "Did we have anything to eat, again?" is a perfectly normal sentence, and your 'correction' changes the intended nuance. I'm not sure I can explain it very well, though. The original sentence is much more natural-sounding than what you proposed.
I guess if I were to try to explain... the "again" signifies that the speaker is trying to recall something they should already know. As in, "you already told me, but can you tell me again?". And "did we" is past tense because your question is technically about that past information, not about the current state of affairs, even though the former is also the latter. I'm not sure this explanation makes sense, but anyways, it's a common conversational phrase and the nuance is completely different because it puts emphasis on trying to remember something rather than simply asking outright.
Nope, it's very very much my native language. Is English perhaps not YOUR native language?
They're coming home and she's trying to remember if they have anything to eat in the house, because as you see from the rest of the scene they haven't been going shopping or stocking up on anything lately. The sentence as written implies that she can't remember whether or not they ate food already, which would make no sense. And "again" either implies it's happened before (which would add to the strangeness) or it's a word meaning something like "tell me again whether X is true," X being the preceding phrase, but this would be very conversationally stilted in this context. You would use it more in a context like, "What's that guy's name, again?"
I can't imagine any native speaker ever using this sentence in this context, and the fact that you think it's common makes even less sense to me. I have never, ever heard anyone say "Did we have anything to eat?" meaning "Is there any food in the house?" "Do" is the only appropriate conjugation here because you are talking about the present state of the pantry/refrigerator. Otherwise "did" needs another verb to make it work. You could say "Did we buy anything to eat this week?" or "Did we keep those leftovers" or "Did we remember to stock up on produce?" but you can't say "Did we have anything to eat?" That sentence can ONLY be about having already physically consumed food.
Looking at the original manga, this translation is certainly correct. The Japanese text is also past-tense and uses 「っけ」, indicating that she's trying to remember.
Different languages can express different ideas in different ways, and utilize different conjugations sometimes to make the point. Part of translation and localization is not just literally transcribing the phrase but knowing enough about both languages and cultures to make the proper adjustments.
I'm sorry, but these highschool girls being real into Aerosmith brings me out of it lol.
LOL right? Me too! And I have no idea why that's where the line is. XD
Not sure why. A LOT of kids who don't really jibe with contemporary music find an identity with older artists/scenes. Sometimes they were introduced to that music through their parents, or they just feel a kinship with it (or they want that "I do my own thing" feeling of liking something other than what's popular among their classmates.)
Aerosmith may have started in the 70's, but I guarantee you still find teenagers wearing stuff for the Rolling Stones and the Doors and Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath and Misfits and Bowie and whatever else from that era or earlier too. Part of me thinks its kind of a nostalgia for the time when musicians were kind of mysterious and larger than life. I think there's still a lot of cultural cache and integration for artists, even alternative or niche ones, that came up during the pre-internet years when everyone could pretty much count on everyone else having the same media touchstones.
Am I the only one who's flabbergasted that Riri's cup size is J or K.......I mean yeah it stated that they're huge but I didn't thought LIKE THAT GIGANTIC-
I'm actually really impressed that Tamamushi got this detail right. Usually mangaka will draw a super busty character and then state that they are a "G cup" or something. G may be big for Japanese women in general, but it does not match with the kind of stacked they are drawing (Japanese bra sizes are different than US.) Riri is definitely realistically a J or K (think Hitomi).
Is this a school for delinquents? Nail polish, piercings, and makeup ok, the boy walks around with his shirt untucked and unbuttoned, they can play with their phones and listen to music in class... Pretty funny how different the depiction of school is here from what pretty much every other manga shows.
(Except for Torako. Gone too soon, but not forgotten.)
There are people on Dynasty overanalyzing a silly ecchi comedy manga and writing dissertations about all the ways the dumb ecchi comedy manga doesn't conform to their ideal real-world behavior for the dumb comedy situations?
