Her skipping school the next day, trying to behave normally, after realising what happened to her

Actually she only skipped the second day after, apparently due to needing some "me time" to digest things. The first was spent being visibly absent-minded at school until she consulted Goggle-sensei in the afternoon/evening.

And that's exactly what I said.
She skipped school after realising what happened.
I meant the day following the realisation, but it's the wording I guess lmao

this feels more like a horror than anything even remotely romantic. I wonder if the author is that inept, or is legitimately trying to portray the situation as disturbing and incomprehensible.

This page and the next is an obvious sign.
This page, her comment on liking "transient things" is pretty big foreshadowing
This page and the next, mc is confused, she takes advantage of her trust
Her skipping school the next day, trying to behave normally, after realising what happened to her

GEE. IDK, I WONDER IF THE DISCOMFORT IS INTENTIONAL.
It most definitely is. It is indeed meant to be uncomfortable.
The scenes may be presented in an erotic manner, but it is by no means meant to be romantic and fluff.
The whole series so far just screams of "stranger danger", you gotta be blind and fooling yourself really hard if you're still convinced that it's a cute and sweet age gap romance. At this point, it's like some want it to be cute, and just ignore all the signs and are still confused at why does it not feel sweet.
Because it's not. Everything so far has been the adult making the main character feel comfortable and trust her, and finally taking advantage of it.
So, no, the author is not inept. They portrayed it as uncomfortable, most readers feel uncomfortable, and that's absolutely the point. (Though more specifically, it's like, "hot", and "wrong". The eroticism is built on how it feels wrong.)

4 go to 5? Wouldn't that be asking Kanan to kabedon Riko? Since Kanan is #4

we would never think of taking another series unless we got the ok from the previous team that was working on it but thank you anyway. I already contacted them but got not response yet.... that\s why I thought of trying my luck here as well

Probably because they're not the ones working on it but yeah, good luck. I'm sure most would want to know if the actual group is even thinking of working on it anymore

is yuri ism still doing this manga? if not CHAOSTEAM would love to take over in the near future since we have the raws for the first two volumes.

Yuri ism hasn't been the ones doing the series, just the doujins it seems. Maybe check with the team actually involved. Dunno if they really check this thread, so it might be a better start to directly contact them? Rather than to ask about the wrong group in a thread they may not follow, and take a lack of response and reader enthusiasm as sign of permission with them being okay with it. Might avoid some awkwardness to get a clear ok on it, just in case ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Even then, demeaning the guy for him to consider this art to be one of the best is uncalled for. It's by far the most subjective comment they made. For one there's no such thing as "one of the best", people can only mean "one of the best i've seen", how are you to even comment on that not to mention art itself is entirely subjective opinion. Who are you to tell someone that what they perceive as good isn't? People can find accidental paint splatters amazing.

All'n'all that was unwarranted, and this blurb was excessie

Had he opened up his excuse of a response with anything but loose comparisons and less of a butthurt toned offended victimized tantrum, when I clearly stated I wasn't preventing anyone from liking anything but was instead rather curious on the opposite take of my personal opinion/taste, maybe my hostility wouldn't have been called for.

And really, after that explosion of verbal diharrea from them, did you really expect me to take that subjective yet-not-put-very-subjectively statement seriously? I thought it was hilarious, so I made sure to include my giggles on it. I never claimed people can't like things, even if in my book they're bad. Quality discourse and reading comprehension were never the spotlight in Citrus discussions, I guess.

They wrote one or two passive aggressive lines at best
Your condescending hostility however, was overblown and pointlessly aggro, it was far from justified

Ikr? The term "Gross" is such a nasty word that's used towards people who cut themselves! Such discrimination!

You can choose to be a dick if you want. Honestly, you can. But it doesn't mean you should, or that it's okay. You shouldn't be surprised if others call you out for it.
Don't justify being an asshole with expressing honesty.

Gross the black haired has cuts all over her wrists

This is probably super insensitive and rude.
Can you imagine, walking up to someone and straight up telling them that their scars (wherever they are) are disgusting? Rather inappropriate, very likely hurtful to whom this may concern.

Ikr? how dare someone express their honest views of being grossed-out by Self-Mutilation!

You seem to not realise that this is just straight up insensitive and insulting.
Would you really walk up to someone, anyone, stranger or friend, and tell them that their scars are gross?
No. Because you might have common sense and might be able to imagine how it could make them feel.
Even if you unfortunately had those views, you might realise that these "honest views" may not be pleasant to share.
I'm not encouraging self harm, but honestly, for whatever reason they had, they likely weren't, or aren't in a good place. They don't need or have to tolerate your insensitive judgemental bullshit just because you decided you wanted to be honestly an asshole.

Was this dropped? It was coming out pretty regularly until right before the last chapter (a week without swapping).

If I recall correctly, Doki usually waits for the tankoubons (is that what they're called?) so that they can translate the version of the manga with the highest quality... and the volumes of this manga take a loooong time to come out. I think that's why there was a one-year gap between Volume 1 and Volume 2. Of course, I'm probably wrong, so feel free to correct me if I'm off base.

Yeah I remember something like that too, but volume 2 still has one chapter left (check the table of contents)

I'm confused by the point of your comment, is there a joke I'm missing?

Hot damn there, FluffyCow
Yes, yes there is
Might have taken that just a bit more seriously than you should have

From what I understand, it's more that they've started using that tag/taken and involved 'yuri' to actually refer to something yaoi, and it's like, bruh, don't take our word, use your own, rather than ppl believing it's about two male bottoms

It put in some extra amounts of subtext to get some extra fans.

Subtext isn't anything new.
Besides, I don't see why it being heavy on the subtext invalidates every other single aspect of the series

A lot of people conflate their subjective feelings on a subject with objective qualities of that subject.

Disliking something doesn't automatically mean that thing is bad.

Myeah, I think that sucks :/
Not being interested in something cus it doesn't match your interests, sure. I just don't find it legit to decide on something's worth based on what genres you were looking for.
Like giving a sea food restaurant a bad review cus you actually wanted steak and walked in the wrong place. This wasn't steak, so it's shit.

The series is obviously more than just its ships. If that's all you see and let yourself be disappointed by, then isn't it really your expectations that let you down? Let's just ignore absolutely everything else about the series and focus on how it isn't yuri?
If I started watching cgdct expecting mainstream harem but am disappointed that there's no male self insert, then that show must be shite, right?
Like when people tried watched Soul Eater NOT or Hidan no Aria AA, expecting the spin offs to be like the original series and were disappointed by how it heavily focused on girls and their relationships. Ah man, I thought this cgdct spin off was shonen het, it wasn't, what a shitty anime.
It's not yuri, so it's queerbaiting garbage. Hibike Euphonium: Not Yuri. 0/10.

They are, because it is not yuri.

Yes, right, these two factors entirely correlate, 100% related, of course
Whenever a series gets movies, it's indeed because it's not yuri, no other merits whatsoever

She didn't say they're getting movies because they aren't Yuri, She said their stories are over because it's not Yuri. That should've been pretty easy to understand.

And thankfully that still really makes sense?
It's not yuri, so it's over, sure. There's 2 more movies but nah, their stories are over. I'm glad you find it as easy to understand as I do

That chapter 2 credit page. This is pretty good though. I was a bit confused when she said "the boy or girl part of me", does that mean she's nonbinary? I hope that's the right term.

I thought about it too
I wonder if she's genderfluid/genderqueer

Comments like this just make me shake my head. She's female and is a lesbian. It's all pretty obvious.

What do you mean? What's wrong with possibly being genderqueer? You say that like it's a bad thing

I don't think they're stating its bad at all, your interpretation is surprisingly negative.

Their interpretation of others' speculation wasn't all that cheery either, leaves a rather bad taste in my mouth
