I know we just started, but I'm already wondering about what type of ending a story like this could have. Not to mention countless questions about how certain things work.

Oh, you know, just typical Yuriblob shit. One chapter they'll go shopping, another chapter they'll go on a ferris wheel, and we might (?) even see their school trip to an aquarium.

I want to make the top half of pg.21 my lockscreen but I'm sure I'd get many questions.

That's the third time in recent days I read a wonderful short story and see a familiar framework on the "author's comment" page. This anthology is a blessing. Thank you for the translation!

It's good, isn't it? Girl x gyaru always makes us dynasty readers cream in delight.

This chapter feels authentically dreamlike. One disconnected sequence to the next.

More so than other mangas this piece is full of the feeling of needing to hide something from society. Makes sense because it's keyyan.

If escorts are this good in Japan it's a wonder anyone pursues long-term relationships anymore.

Gotta love 'em classics. There's such a sense of hyperreality to this story.

edit: ah, this is the person who wrote 'Philosophia'. No wonder I kin.

The whole soda metaphor was so strange and pointless lol

It's a metaphor for This Girl's a Fucking Serial Killer but she's still Wakaba's perfect angel or whatever I guess

'I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was Zhuangzi. Soon I awakened, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.'

'My grandfather is currently the chairman of the board'

...now in which yuri manga have I heard that before?

Hinoka is a brave girl. Heck, I didn't kiss my childhood friend until I was 21 (after crushing on her for over 10 years), and she had a boyfriend at the time who was a total abusive tool. But it still didn't make it right to kiss her cause she was in a relationship. And she's still the only girl I've kissed. Cause I'm working on myself. I'm a little too possessive. (2020)

We like the girls who are bad for us, don't we? I admit, I'm the same.

All in all, while the art is quite nice, and there's a conveyance of emotion, I don't like this much. There's no point in this ambiguity--it's fairly clear that there is some actual state of affairs that all the characters come to be aware of, so why should the audience be the only ones in the dark?

I agree...Karuha isn't at her best when she writes about envy, which seems to have been the theme of this anthology. Her KanaMari doujin is one of my favorites, however.

I suspect she's not a person who lives with enough envy to be intimately familiar with the dynamic of it. Every mangaka has their strengths and weaknesses.

It makes me really happy that multiple people read Yuhki Kamatani's manga because I recommended it here :D That series is one of the rare ones I've sought out physical copies of to have displayed on my bookshelf because it means so much to me.

Here's hoping this manga can be half as good? The second chapter only establishing "this wasn't a one time quirk" is a little disappointing though, of course it wasn't a one time quirk or we wouldn't have a story, we just learned something we'd assume to be true already. Aren't there more interesting questions you could focus on with this story author-san?

what in hell is that even supposed to mean?
like did you learn up until now in life that what you find interesting ain’t the same for others?

Yes, I am aware that there's plenty of people out there with minimal to no standards for fiction who would be happy with a chapter that's just spinning the plot's wheels, congratulations on being one of them if that's you. However, I am entitled to have my own more complex preferences that are different from (and superior to) yours, such as not wanting a story's pacing to stall out as early as chapter two.

This newest chapter was better. There's something that feels very off about the pacing but I suspect that's intentional, as they're deliberately attempting to speedrun finding closure to lifelong hangups. The talk of "lingering attachments" feels like they're thinking of themselves as ghosts even, which is fascinating.

Here to speak as someone who preferred the atmosphere and pacing in the first chapter to the one in the latest. Nah, I think suicide is an interesting enough topic in itself. Conversely, I think the third chapter got a bit too grounded in real-life dramas and resolutions for my tastes, if that makes any sense. But that is my own preference and we always need diversity in readership. I'm most happy when characters mull over existence without necessarily resolving their real-life issues. Because everything we do originates from a long succession of causes extending way back into the past, and fixing things quickly (i.e. identifiable plot developments in a scripted manga) ain't how it works. I like it when the authors linger on that complexity without necessarily making the characters work past it. Rings a bit false to me.

Autistic protagonist + yuri + doomsday references = automatic fave.

I figured out my own formula a long time ago.

And yes I have read Qualia the Purple.

The Qualia of Purple is super good. I love how they use the quantum mechanics concepts in an intelligent way, even if it's super extrapolated. Other sci-fi series should learn from that (marvel, take notes).

Also, we need more sci-fi yuri.

I think lots of sci-fi does extrapolate well from the existing science, but they're never the popular ones.

And they're almost never yuri.

I like the detail that the humans all look like rabbit bear things while the "monsters" look like humans. I wonder how the monster actually look

Saya no Uta, but yuri? Sign me up.
