Honestly, who knows how their society views same sex couples (and, by extension, what sort of views Vivio might pick up from her peers). The way the canon itself dances around the question could read as them being in a sort of don't-ask-don't-tell "secret" relationship. AFAIK none of the characters are openly and explicitly homosexual.
Wow, the tone shift between the anime and this is so jarring, especially Kaban's personality! This is pretty funny as its own thing, though, I think I like it so far. Definitely more raunchy and upfront with its yuri subtext... Now I want to see what they do with Fennec and Arai because Fennec is Yuri Queen of Japari Park.
(Okay, Margay might be a bit more gay, but come on, it's in her name)
Even though I was MOSTLY ok with how they treated their relationship in the show (I always want a REAL confession, though I know we never get it...), my heart does, in fact, need more post-epilogue Finzetta. The ending was a little too ambiguous as to what happened to Izetta for my tastes.
For some reason, based on the synopsis, I didn't think I was going to like this one, but I'm glad I was proven wrong so quickly! It's not easy to pile on so many characters at the center and still let them shine, but I love all of them. Especially Chikako, though, because she's perfect. Surprisingly I also really like Ayumi, even though she's more-or-less the kind of character I usually find uninteresting. Maybe it's the context? CH 9 though... I haven't checked recently, but am I actually Madam Tsuyuri Konoe, and I just forgot?
Aw, feels like everyone in the comments in here is tearing this series down, but here I am eating it up and enjoying every chapter. Now I feel like a dummy u_u
Oh well, such is fate. When all is said and done, I'm just a messy bitch who lives for drama. I just hope poor Pu Yi can get some good resolution without having to turn into some sort of villain, because we all know he's not gonna get the girl. Stay strong, Pu Yi!
