^"Gaulish" and "Gallic" are both valid - "Gaullic" OTOH isn't. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Funfact: the Irish word gall 'foreigner' (pl. gaill) is derived from Gaul, "who in pre-Viking Gaelic history were the archetypal "foreigners". Dumville says that "what [the Gauls] had done in Gaelic prehistory to gain that status is unknown and was probably unpleasant."" (Caesar recorded some of the Gallic tribes of the Atlantic coast were very accomplished shipbuilders and seafarers and Ireland isn't too far away by sail...)

...meanwhile the geek in me is tickled by the amount of detail given to the mail shirt and the presence of the shoulder doublings widely used in Classical Antiquity, although these look more like the Celtic-style "cape" rather than the linothorax-derived "yokes" of Roman mail and lack the front hook closure common to both...

^tbf that is a setting where people can casually jump off buildings and planes - the isekai'd R6S crew was a little shocked by the sorts of stunts the natives pull like nothing particularly special.

I'm glad that the fanbase is more or less on the same page about the siscon angst storyline being a blemish on an otherwise perfect yuri comedy. There is seriously sooo much good in this manga and their stupid melodrama is just so boring in comparison. And fuck a siscon ew

Wildly selective and tendentious generalisations are a pursuit most unbecoming in a gentleman.

Having read the first chapter, I kinda just hate Kurosawa.

And that's terrible.

I was thinking about amnesia or secret bodyguard theory for a while, but that isekai adult woman is good too.

Octopi don't have external ears, of course. P sure Ina is modelled on this kewt lil' guy, Ophistoteuthis californiana aka flapjack octopus, which is kind of the go-to starting point for "cutesy" cephalopod-based monstergirl designs from what I've seen. The appendages are simply fins, a characteristic trait of the cirrate suborder of octopuses used for propulsion.

I get that this may be Japanese culture but- 33 AINT EVEN THAT OLD. I'm still pretty young myself and will joke around saying "0mG 30 iS sOooo oLd~ I lOvE AnciEnt ArtifaCts~". But the amount of times I've seen people in Manga who're 28-34 consider themselves "old" is just so odd to me lmao

It is if you want to have babies of your own…women over the age of 35 have increased risk of complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Sooo…yeah understandable concern if you are dating with that intention.

I see men marrying over 40 all the time, but for women there is the dreaded biological clock, it sucks if you want to have children later in life, if you reach 40 it becomes very dangerous to have the children yourself, after 35 it's already a high risk pregnancy.

Why human reproductive biology works in this rather unusual fashion is something of a major question in evolutionary biology, btw.

Your occasional reminder of the Twins being ridiculously overspecced and doubly so for their schools, lel

TL;DR Tsubaki readily recognises her possessive jealous streak for what it is, is right appalled by that side of herself, and has no idea how to deal with it but it's making her guilt and self-loathing issues act up something fierce.

I somehow doubt that when they're talking about the "power of love", they mean a giant fucking laser that probably kills people, rip X.

Nonsense. Marisa's magicannon lecture. When shooting, concentrate your mind, and softly cast the incantation

This may come as a shock but Shizuku isn't exactly the most functioning and emotionally stable teen around. The whole ex business has clearly rattled loose any amount of baggage and she's relapsing to her old prickly and closed-off mannerisms. She's probably extra prickly and defensive because Saori prying into her messy past like this is pretty much entirely unprecedented and likely something of a breach of an unspoken agreement.

Recall also that Shizuku has massive abandonment issues and is duly reflexively suspicious of the motives of anyone trying to get close to her. Hence why she gets in Saori's face over the latter's siscon issues and the knee-jerk worst-case assumption of being an emotional replacement - it rather echoes the way she tried to "test" her by attempting to scare her away the first time they actually talked face-to-face.

TL;DR the kid's a mess and a half and has deep-seated trust issues at the best of times.
