I've never gotten the "fingers-in-the-mouth" stuff - just makes me think "Gee, I hope she washed her hands." But literally everything else here works for me. I hope these recent Pixiv diversions herald a return for Kishi-sensei to longer explicit lesbian works - his characters are all so sexy!

Why the weird star in the title here, though? The cover page just shows a plain "x".

TBH this series is really dumb and kind of annoying, but as a linguistics nerd with a Japanese degree I really enjoyed the detailed, weird corner-case translation notes. They easily make this a must-read for me. ><

"...typesetting ktk pics makes me want to commit sudoku."

It makes you want to create grid-based number puzzles?

Not sure if complicated psychological musing on self-loathing and learning to accept and love yourself or just smut...

Well, I at least appreciate the refreshing "Uh, yeah I know what feels good, what are you talking about?" attitude from Yamazaki. I get tired of everyone writing women as being all "Physical pleasure? What is this concept you speak of?" and the female body being some inscrutable puzzle box, like nobody touches themselves or gets turned on to have any idea what feels good to women. ><;

I see this mangaka still loves their ass shots, heh.

Yes, indeed. But they're still SO bad. I mean, I'm used to mangaka being unable to draw breasts in the ballpark of anatomically correct, but butts? (Incidentally, this guy isn't that bad at breasts, which makes it even stranger).

Seriously look at this:

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/im_an_elite_angel_but_im_troubled_by_an_impregnable_high_school_girl_ch07#17

I mean, that's what you'd get if you popped the legs off a Barbie doll and glued them onto a stick. I'm so confused that this guy has such an ass fetish but seems like he's never seen one before. Feels like he's drawing what he thinks one looks like from a 10-year-old trying to describe it after seeing a dirty picture one time for a few seconds. The shadow of a memory of booty, long ago lost to the ages of legend...

Anyone know the sfx of chapter 6? Was she sucking?

You don't specify which page, but I'm gonna assume you mean page 16 or thereabouts. No, the fx are as follows:

Top right: A bang or rattle sound and one expressing surprise/shock.
Below that: Indication of a gentle touch
Left: Shock/Surprise
Bottom: Very loud heartbeat, small "twitch" sfx near the legs

Re: earlier comments - I have always wondered why one's heartbeat is on the left side, whereas anxiety, happiness, love, and a few other emotions are felt directly in the center of the chest. I've looked for the answer a few times but never really found one (there's virtually no information out there on 'how' and 'where' we feel emotions for some reason outside of a single study that gets quoted everywhere...).

I think the answer is because emotions are felt in areas based on neurological paths, and it has little to do with blood flow. Still not sure why the center of the chest is the place those feelings end up because there isn't anything important there even from a neurological perspective, though.

Do you actually feel those things in the physical location of your heart? I can't say I have. I think that arose out of poetry rather than any kind of common physical sensation.

There is however an accumulating body of research about the neurological role of your stomach, and, in particular, how the flora there affect it. I have definitely felt gastrointestinal changes based on intense emotions.

...since when was this considered a myth?? The heart is positioned asymmetrically, with only about a third of it being actually behind the sternum. Two thirds are on the left side.

Yeah, no.

Web MD: https://www.webmd.com/heart/picture-of-the-heart

"The heart is a muscular organ about the size of a fist, located just behind and slightly left of the breastbone. The heart pumps blood through the network of arteries and veins called the cardiovascular system."

University of Michigan: https://healthblog.uofmhealth.org/heart-health/anatomy-of-a-human-heart

"Located between the lungs in the middle of the chest, the heart pumps blood through the network of arteries and veins known as the cardiovascular system. It pushes blood to the body’s organs, tissues and cells. "

Quora answer from a cardiologist: https://www.quora.com/If-our-heart-is-in-the-middle-why-do-we-feel-the-heartbeat-on-the-left

"The question is correct that most of the heart lies in the center of the chest. Only a variable sized portion protrudes to the left.

So if most of the heart is in the center, then why isn’t the hearbeat felt in the center of the chest?

There are two reason you don’t (typically) feel a heart beat in the center of the chest:

  1. The sternum is a thick bony structure that decreases the transmission of force of the heart beating. (There actually is vibration there - it is just too small typically to feel. You can hear the vibrations with a stethoscope however.)

  2. The Right Ventricle pumps less blood. The Right Ventricle is under the sternum and (typically) in the center of the chest beats less vigorously than the Left Ventricle because it is only pumping blood through the lungs as opposed to the entire body.

The reason you feel the heart beat to the left is that a portion of the left ventricle lies against the skin between the rib cage on the left side - and effectively “bounces” contraction waves against that soft area. The result is a “PMI” - point of maximal impulse where the heart beat can most be felt. As the heart enlarges, the PMI moves further and further laterally, away from the center. The PMI can sometimes be used to diagnose abnormal heart enlargement."

It's a myth, btw, that the heart is located on the side. Its actually right under the sternum in the middle, because that's the most protected area. The reason you feel the beat stronger on the left is because of the position and function of the chambers and arteries.

If she has cat ears... why does she also have human ears? Which ones does she hear with?

It's bugging me how badly this author draws butts, given how much he seems to like them. ><; Each cheek isn't an independent lobe stuck on top of a leg separated by like 3 or 4 inches.

Other than that, as a dumb ecchi comedy it gets the job done. :p

wait, did they fuck or...?

Who wouldn't wanna fuck with that kinda mood going on? they probably did.

Covered in coagulating blood? That's certainly a mood, but I'm not sure "sexy" is it.

At the very least, if they get together in the end Dorothy knows that Maria isn't averse to getting her wings, ifyaknowwhatimean.

Some more terminology questions I have:

How did you choose "saint"? Is that translated from a Japanese word, or katakana? Is it more like "holy person" in this context? "Saints" in the Catholic parlance are exemplary figures of piety and devotion. There is a long formal process of canonization and it's extremely rare for a living person to be declared a saint. Among other things, "miracles" need to be associated with them. It just doesn't seem to fit how it's being used with Dorothy.

Next, frequent reference is maid to Dorothy's "nursing mother" - is that meant to be distinct from "birth mother," i.e. this woman who raised her and met some tragic end was not related to her? Or is it just a weird way of referring to her mother? Is it more like "nursemaid?"

Thank you for the work translating, BTW. I am enjoying the series a lot. I just like discussing translation details. :p

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/the_night_turned_out_to_be_hot#3 looks pretty nude to me.

You do know that women have nipples, right? Unless we somehow know canonically that Yuzu was born without them, which would be weird.

The tag description doesn't specify full frontal nudity.

It's two completely naked girls in a sexual position. Saying it shouldn't be 'NSFW' because there's no visible nipple is ridiculous.

I mean, the author drew her whole breast without even hair "strategically" covering it and excluded the nipples. To me that's a specific effort to take it out of NSFW territory. There's another tag (ecchi) that usually gets applied to sexy-but-not-explicit works.

Whatever, though, it's not like it's the first or the last time those (or many other) tags will be misapplied here. I get that it's mostly a joke related to the pairing. I just think that gets done a little too much around here. Just one dude's opinion though.

... That's it?

I guess people are starved for any sexual Citrus content, but frankly this doesn't support either the "lots of sex" (like 5 pages with little to no sex shown) or "nsfw" tags (as defined here there has to be nudity, and the closest you get here is a censored nipple).

Yes, it's futa, though. Not my cup of tea. I meant more specifically yuri, with his muscle girl couple.

Hey, speaking of 23 (in another comment from this set)! I've given up hope that he'll ever draw a multi-panel story/sex scene, but I guess we'll always have the delicious one-shots.

The fact that Ikarin draws such beautiful, realistic big breasts but never any breast worship is one of my Great Travesties of Yuri. It may be second only to 23 never drawing a full sex scene or anything with a story.

Need moar, Ikarin!

A MNK installment with no lactation? What is this treachery? Should we be worried that Homura Subaru has been kidnapped?

Dorothy's name was actually kind of a pain to translate because it seems like the author wanted it to be Spanish/Italian but they seemingly misspelled it, so I had to do a bit of guess work with another translator who speaks Spanish.

If anyone wants to have a guess her name in Japanese is: ドロレス・リリィ・アルゲンクルス

Her last name is actually glued together in the original Japanese script but I know for a fact Cruz is always a separate name so I split it, because "alguencruz" isn't a real name.

Your choice seems sound. "クルス" = "cross," so "Cruz" makes sense. I tried some derivations of and combinations with the first half but the best I could find was the Argen river, some unremarkable river in Germany. Or a manufacturer of dental amalgams.

Curious why you went with "Priest Marco" - "Father Marco" would be the correct address if Catholicism is the reference point.

It's not I'm pretty sure. Blade is ブレード, but the title has バレッド. The author himself spells it as "gunbured", with "red" highlighted in red, likely a reference to "red sisters", and I think the first half is meant to come from gun bullet.

Interesting, thank you for the details. The whole katakana transliteration of "bullet" causes problems anyway (see: Yurikuma Arashi, and even FF7), but adding some wordplay on top of it? Crazy mangaka. :p
