Always love seeing a new chapter from this series. Are pages 15 and 16 supposed to be at the end? It seems like 15 should be at the beginning? Just a thought.

Jumping in to say that I read this awhile back, around the same time as when I first encountered my first yuri series--- somehow I remember the anime very fondly. A second re-read/rewatch didn't give me the same fluffy feelings, but there's definitely a rosy retrospection going on. I personally really liked their dynamic, although I was never really a wincest type of person.

This is the image and discussion that led me to getting up to date with Watamote... ch 70 is definitely the catalyst for the yuri, but the character growth in ch 115 is the reason I stayed. Thanks to everyone who made a good argument to read it. Also, now being able to appreciate it fully... I love how accurate this art is.

ahaha, normally this would suck, but if Saiko-chan is prioritizing her friend over her senpai, then that's definitely a good open ending!! Fighting, Chihi-chan!

I didn't like this one when I first read it, but a second reading has sweetened me up to it... I like the optimistic open ending and the hint of lighthearted-ness. Felt a bit like the authors feelings were seeped into Riku's experiences, but I might be reading too much into that.

How one can simultaneously write Yuri comedy and disturbing loli porn i have no idea.

I took a look at the blog associated with him and oooh boy, what a wild sight. His works are ridiculously thought out from what little I previewed and pretty disturbing for someone who isn't accustomed to that side of things...

I still continue to read his stuff here because it's mostly light hearted, cute, and has of-age characters, but sometimes I wonder if it's okay to just like certain works from him and then disassociate from the other stuff.

Damn, I hope that dream about Naruto killing Lady Suiren was not foreshadowing

what's with the Japanese and fainting?

Nutritional deficiencies from all the white rice they eat I guess. o3o

It's just a trope. But then again, a lot of Asians have Hemoglobin E (HbE) which causes mild anemia. It's prevalent enough that a lot of asian remedies are for fainting or feeling dizzy.

I did watch Budoukan but unfortunaly the manga is not translated so it's kinda hard to compare. Maybe the relations between the idols are not focus that much in the manga and it's only Erypio/Maina which in itself had take 7 episodes to have something a bit concrete.

You can read the first couple chapters that correlate up until the most recent episode at the official website. The last link, I think from here.

I've read a bit of the manga on a foreign translation, but I agree that they've definitely tuned in on the yuri focused aspects in the girls' interactions with each other. Also it helps that the voice actresses all seem to have script directions that help encourage this tone, haha.

The crossing scene was the the first thing I noticed, just because, WTF is up with romance at railroad crossings, Japan?

It's easily symbolic and memorable. My favorite usage of it was in 5 Centimeters Per Second. That being said, lord, do I love the pacing in this one.

I'm simultaneously all 3 friends at the end of that chapter!! Glad that the author loves this story so much to keep it going, despite it not being serialized (?)

Apart from those filthy doughnuts it's a good story till now, but, as it is set in this day and age, it seems a bit unlikely that neither of them had the "Oh fuck, I'm in love with her" epiphany yet. Subaru will have to guide them. Next chapter maybe, if it takes longer it gets silly.

Filthy??? Doughnuts???

They don't deserve such hate, surely

The MCs of your romance story are too passive/shy/closeted/whatever so that there’s no progress. Solution: introduce another character.
The bad way: introduce a nuisance rival to create a love triangle.
The good way: introduce a relative/friend that ships them.

This also works in real life!

"You see you were born from my butt"
I'm not sure anyone gonna be happy to hear that. But not gonna lie the dad took me by a surprise usually when you saw drunkin dad in anime/manga without a mom some dark stuff tend to happen but i kindda love how this manga went. It just different than the ones we tend to get and some how close and easy to relate.

Translator said that this was taken from Chinese translation right? This is a common saying for "the stork dropped you off at our doorstep". If I'm wrong, woops.

Azul is the biggest sub

She's my favorite type of sub (in the yuri genre) : The type of girl that looks like she's the top in the relationship, but she is actually the bottom.

Everytime. On the other hand, fun top types are the ones that are like older sister caring types, but have a wild side. The gap is too good to resist.

"They were bought as a pair, but.. they cant be worn together anymore.."

Ughhhh

T _ T

That really hurt. Plus confirming that the shoes were indeed the ones worn by the other girl made it worse.

Thankfully, these credits are funny enough to keep me grounded in such a heavy series

I'm not complaining about it at all, but there seems to be an uptick in OL and Adult Life yuri lately.

I feel blessed. It's so refreshing and perfectly coincides with my life trajectory.

as @Anjelika mentioned, bitch has a different connotation in Japanese than it does English. It's usually used to describe someone who's a slut. And I think it was pretty clear our protag is quite the slut, while the motocycle girl would be the college girl.

Gotcha. I thought as much, but got confused since it seemed like the protag was the one who is falling in love with the college (motorcycle) girl, contrary to the title.

Hey guys.

As some of you have already noticed, I indeed mistranslated the last line in the prologue.
Terribly sorry for the confusion. (シ_ _)シ

I put the fix up on my site, but basically the line should be
"This is the story of an aloof college girl and a bitch in love."
instead of
"This is the story of a college girl falling in love with a bitch."

I'm already confused on who is the college girl and who is the bitch... Pardon my comprehension issues, but can someone kindly clear it up for me?

Alice...in wonderland? Kinda surprising the three of them straight up wanted Mari gone forever. Didn't quite expect such a drastic decision!
