Useless no longer.

Needs a tag.

Who the guy end up with?

It is very likely that you are the only person on this forum to care. :D

I can't get behind this logic,

Because there is no logic behind this plot, just pure emotion and hormones. Let go of any expectation of consistent, consequence-aware behavior, and you may just enjoy this particular ride.

Also, I agree with everyone above that the biker girl is the only character worth my attention so far.

Austerity politics, in a thirsty-magical-girls comic? Oh Japan, what are you doing...

I wonder if the big theme of this story turns out that Kuzuryu's grasp on physical reality is particularly tenuous, which is why she can slip into imaginary roles so easily, and also perceives animals as sentient humanoid creatures.

ISEKAI TRUCK KILLER CONVOY

Finally, the show about Truck-kun has been green-lit.

ladies and gentlemen, the definiton of a useless lesbian.

I don't know if you could call someone who asked her crush out first truly "useless"...

Guys, I think we've reached peak yuri. Pack your shit and look for a new favorite genre: it just won't get any better than this right here.

If this story has a central theme beyond the Yuri, I would say is to find one's path father the one forged to you is no longer an option.

"A future is not given to you. It is something you must take for yourself."

I swear, they talk in this series so much, and explanations for everything seem so long-winded... I wonder if it's a translation thing or the original also felt that way (maybe it shouldn't surprise me, it's an adaptation of a novel :P)

That's pretty much standard fare in every work of speculative fiction I read outside of manga. This one is actually quite decent with its exposition, having delayed it until chapter 3 (I think) and gradually expanding it as the plot requires, instead of infodumping it all in the intro like 90% of mangas out there.

They worked so hard!

The problem with talented people is that they are often so focused on a long-term goal that they don't take the time to enjoy all the progress they are continuously making, burning themselves out emotionally and physically. I really hope the MCs don't end up that way...

Based is essentially recognizing someone for a strong yet principled take that you can see comes from within someone, typically with the implication that you agree with their take, or think it’s good.

So it's like saying that you agree with the principles someone expresses and/or lives by?

I gain more sympathy for the floating eyeball each episode

It is basically the beleaguered manager tasked with overseeing a horny, anti-social teenager at work that risks her life and social standing. I wouldn't want to be its (metaphorical) shoes.

In any case, Teru's got issues.

Darn, that first page hit too close to home for me.

People that are obsessed with someone should never actually become a lover of that person. That's a recipe for total disaster. Shannon and the werewolf girl would be adorable together, and Maria and Dorothy just need to fuck already.

Based.

I've been meaning to ask you, what does "based" mean? I am really not up to date on internet dialects lately...

Azusa is just an adorable bundle of gap moe while Ruby is an ara ara cinnamon roll of culture.

Best summary of the series so far.

imo you're either a real couple or you're not. Clean emotional lines save future hurt.

That's certainly an opinion you can have. I'm personally committed to "clean emotional lines" myself

But I've also known any number of "not really a couple/off-and-on as a couple but always together/we prefer to leave it ambiguous/you thought we were together when we weren't but now we are," etc, couples, and the degree of hurt involved, if any, was (mostly) known only to them.

To add to that, if the couple is actually good at communicating, there will be regular reassessments of the current relationship status, with accompanying changes in emotional and behavioral commitment. Granted, communication is hard, and romance fiction is all about lack of it...

Can we just appreciate for a moment how masterfully the right half of the first page in this chapter establishes the relationship between Takako and Yuki in just three frames? This is the first time we see the guy (or I have already forgotten about him), yet by the time he opens his mouth for the first time in this chapter, we already know roughly who he is and what his relationship with Takako is.

tfw you buy a box of liqueur chocolates knowing your significant other is a lightweight and will pass out after eating just one, leaving the rest of the box for you to devour.

Do we have a tag for Truck-kun, that old workhorse, delivering tragedy to us since 1900?

And it even says non-alcoholic on the bottle...

Imoko was just looking for a convenient excuse to drop the charade and let her true self shine through, pretending not to remember anything afterwards. She is really a scary woman, in an awesome way.

Also, did she murder her mother in cold blood at some point? Cause I dunno. I'd be at or about that point. Asks what I'm doing as I move sinisterly closer? "I'm having you scrapped."

Sana: "I'm having you scrapped. You are a bad influence on me."
Mom: "...well played."

The author likes animals huh

My working theory is that Neji has gotten themselves a pet hamster and is now itching to tell everyone everything they've learned about caring for it. That seems how most cat(girl) mangas come into being nowadays, anyway...
