I hope the mods never give in to the pressure to add the spoiler tags. The entire point of the manga was to shock readers, and that doesn't happen if you know the girl is a yandere from the start.
maybe there are people who have zero interest in edgy dark twists but end up having to read all of the stories that are like this because some people think it's some sort of sacred experience that can't be hinted at by the tags.
Waste of time. I think this kind of twist is just bullshit writing. The sad part is that with the way tags work here I can't just avoid these stories (and if I were the kind of person that like them, I wouldn't be able to find them through the tags either, so it's a lose-lose tagging practice)
Implying it would've been less terrible if she'd cheated with another woman?
To this day it still confuses me how the default assumption when a woman in a gay relationship starts dating a man is that she was actually straight all along and not that she's simply bisexual. You know that's a thing, right?
People tend to see cheaters as deceitful in every way possible. "You never really loved me" is a very common thought for someone who has been cheated on. If the cheater is not openly bisexual, people will think they have been deceitful even about their sexuality, just like when a man cheats on his wife with a guy and people think he was gay all along.
The evil/cheating bisexual is such an overused trope already, I don't know why we just expect/assume even more of that.
"Implying it would've been less terrible if she'd cheated with another woman?"
It's certainly not less wrong, but it can feel less terrible (even if just a small amount) to some people. If your same-sex partner cheats on you with a person of the opposite sex, there's a higher chance of you not only thinking things are wrong with the cheater but also thinking that things are wrong with you for not being of the "right sex", thus leading to strong feelings of inadequacy.
You're talking pure nonsense here. I suggest not pretending your personal opinions on something are actual facts of what occurs. It's an opinion born out of puritanical western society and not based in fact.
This has to be one of the most overbearing, pretentious comments I've seen on this site. The effects porn can have in the lives of the women that participate in it are well-documented facts. It doesn't matter that you say it's the puritanical society's fault to comfort yourself
What the hell was that flashback. When Nozomi was going on with that "you told me we were friends" crap, I genuinely thought we were seeing Shion having a nightmare or something. She said that manipulative homophobic stuff with a really creepy expression.
Really well drawn but this first chapter was basically a collage of clichés with no real direction, I just read it and can't even remember the name of the protagonist. The good, I guess, is that it should be easier to have it improve than to make it worse. I mean, even a simple thing like giving the characters clear motives would go a long way, the few things you can learn about those two in this chapter are all terribly tropey.
