I think I'm probably stupid - I've read this, barely understood what happened and why, read the comments and now I understand even less. Didn't get the feeling that Myia and Saki were dating or are hinted that they will start to, and a reread doesn't convince me... but I feel like you guys must be right because then why even include Saki in the story at all?
For me, the biggest clue was page 5, where Saki wakes Kanade up in the present timeline (evident in the latter's hair being long). How she wakes her up (basically crawling all over her and giving her an implied kiss on the lips) that, to me, just screams "roommates""best friends" "couple". You don't wake a regular colleague up like that, even when you are sex workers sharing an apartment for some reason.
Saki is best girl. She set up Miya-Kanade to meet her old flame to give her a shot at closure, despite knowing full well that she could lose her as a result. That takes guts, and the fact that Kanade was able to move on from Izumi and appreciated the risk Saki took for her makes the ending that much better. The story is melancholic but not sad, if that makes any sense? Yes, everyone has lost something, but only things they didn't need and were holding them back.
This author is a beacon of hope for all those struggling with life.
She's a housewife. Her main occupation is caring for her family and doing housework while her husband goes out to work. (In her free time she draws manga.) It's ok, nothing wrong with that, those are her life choices and all's fine with them, power and respect to her! But she's hardly what I call a role model.
She is a well-adjusted person who lives a life she built for herself and lives it to the fullest, enjoying every day of it. That's far better than 99% of people I know can do, so she is a goddamn role model (and a beacon of hope) in my book.
Here the protagonist was, happily adjusting to a life without emotional manipulation and abuse, when suddenly a wild Hwayeon appeared and used the "pretend like nothing happened, so the target of your manipulation is too confused and bound by social convention to resist your demands" technique from the Gaslighting perk tree.
Don't get me wrong, Hwayeon is the best-written character in this story, but whenever she appears, disaster follows, and I just want to see some guilt-free Romance with the protagonist and Jisoo...
I mean.. Just look at her.. That transformation sequence too.. Really really nice.. What do you call her clothes?
That's just a riding attire (not even a uniform, just a set of practical clothes for a specific task), though the lack of an overcoat gives me pause -- I assume it gets quite chilly on a dragon at top speed. :-)
Actually curious: Has there ever been a school council vice-president in the history of the yuri genre who wasn't at the very least crushing on the (current, former) president? Cannot think of any off the top of my head. :-/
Page 2 is the most erotic thing I've seen on this site in a very long while.
Fingerlicking is hot, I'm aware it's technically hand licking but it's close enough.
Honestly I feel like Elsa was like "You're not putting your thumb in my mouth Evie? Fine, I'll just lick it myself." here
It's not just the licking, but also the hand-holding, the caresses, the disheveled hair, the misty stares, the eye contact, etc., etc.
Honestly, I really like the contrast between fantasy!Elsa and real!Elsa. It’s poignant. Not sure how exactly, but it is.
Fantasy!Elsa comfortably offers all of herself to the person she loves. Real!Elsa holds back on both because Yvonne keeps blocking her. I am not sure whether the real!Elsa is actually as thirsty as the fantasy!one, but I wouldn't put it past her, given what she said at the end of the last chapter...
So uh, with the magical girl hunt, are we just supposed to accept the fact that the two girls on the team literally committed mass genocide against highschool girls and then just...said "sorry?" Are we not gonna talk about that?
the 'modern-family ending' is expected, not that I'm complaining tho.
Aka the Nanoha way
This is the way.
Can we have an F for best girl Cool-chan?
She only got like one panel on the last chapter.
But at least she was doing the Evangelion "Congratulations!" thing in the panel, so that's... something? Anyway, F. :-(
Y'all zoomers got no concept of cringe. Bit a cheese and they go cryin' "cringe cringe" to the hills. Back in my day an archaeologist could punch nazis while rambling about cultural appropriation and we liked it.
Very much this. With a little practice, one can thoroughly enjoy the cheese, especially paired up with ham. :3
For the record in japanese meme is spelled メメ in katakana, which the tl mentioned looks a lot like XX. So it’s pretty clear what her true ending was
There is also the XX-shaped pin in her hair, which cannot be coincidence. :-)
Reminiscing about your ex while drowning in a double marshmallow heaven? Being Mei is suffering...
Oof. I was doubtful that the highschool crush would return, but now I’m convinced she’s definitely coming back later.
Actually, I bet that’s gonna be the endgame. Mei either abandons these weirdos to be with her crush, or she’ll turn down the crush to date all 5 of her weirdos.
Or she'll end up dating those 5 and her crush. Can't discount that possibility
The crush actually represents a secret sixth sense.
Oh, I thought Yvonne was getting sus last chapter, but it turns out she was just starting to baby-zone Elsa. Thank Madoka that Garth was there to drop some science on that. XD
And yet in all of that time despite the pair getting married having a long story arc of getting science kids and being able to transmerge into the real world to kill the game developers behind the game, Yvonne still thinks that Elsa is only married to her due to the fact she can't date any of the male protagonists. Weird
You know, that sounds very in-character for Evie.
Wow, I didn't even make the connection that the redhead from ch. 36 was probably time-traveling Elsa. That's a crazy plot development.
She's not time-traveling. She is on the New Game+ cycle...
