Such a deep and nuanced relationship ...

That interest in making sexual stimulants ... sounds like a future chapter where A fends of B because they don't want to take advantage of them ^^;

They should try this sex thing. I hear it's quite calming ... afterwards.

It's not like marriage magically makes you immune to everyone else around you. The numbers for cheating and divorces would look quite different if that were the case ^^;

A plot development absolutely nobody could have seen coming.

^so true. And mildly annoying. I'm not into too into circumstances that are that forced.

And also, not to be too complainy, but I'd kinda would have liked a "mechanic" for the gender switching that's a bit wackier than "it's this area here". Something that'd promise some future back-and-forth switching. But I guess that's beyond the scope of the manga.

Didn't read this ongoing, just (more or less) in one go now. Not a fan. Manga-about-mangaka-plot #6704. From the first time those editors appear you can accurately predict exactly their role in the plot. The dad subplot was as cliche as these plots go; especially with the whole letting-go-oh-secretly-running-back-showing-the-manga-shows-up-at-the-signing thing ... add a bit of relationship misunderstanding and so on ... all pretty bleh.

Romance was pretty okay though. I'd rate this two potatoes and half a persimmon.

Well, it was okay. Nothing that'll stick though I feel. It gave up on the entire stalker-pet-unhealthy-relationship aspect way too quickly; instead went for stupid childhood-friend-amnesia and then wrapped everything up in the same way any generic romance does. So, yeah. Whatever.

There's something about this modern type of edgyness that just makes me roll my eyes and mutter "get on with it already". Sigh. Oh well. Let's see whether there's some actual plot at some point.

Oh boy, are we playing by Ranma ½ rules?

My thoughts exactly.

It portrays it a bit more like an escort service than your classic dinky brothel or street prostitution experience maybe.

It's tough to pick between a Seaweed Encyclopedia and a Poisonous Plant Encyclopedia.

I like that she's not completely innocent and passive about everything.

... ah, the classic I-thought-you-are-trying-to-commit-suicide-so-I'm-causing-an-accident trope. Still hate it. ^^

The concept of lusty angels is something only Japan can produce.

You are assuming the Bible has any sort of consistency on anything.

It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to them, elegant and beautiful. And when the angels beheld them, they became enamored of them, saying to each other, “Come, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men, and let us beget children.” (1 Enoch 7:1-2)

Uh oh.

Everything about this makes me incredibly worried. Editing burn-out is a real thing; welcome to edition #17 that's still not perfect because nothing ever is ...
And if I wanted to read streamlined mainstream manga I'd read those. In fact, there are plenty of them already.

Of course - it might all turn out to be fantastic and we'll just get the same in better. But I'm a naturally skeptical person and it is 2020 after all :/

Got myself a duplicate Saria. Well, at least it's someone I use all the time.
Also Glaucus (I guess if I specifically need to kill drones there's some niche use) and Vermeil (definitely doesn't seem useful).

Getting kinda bored with the entire thing anyway. Feels like most of the time I'm just grinding chars for the sake of grinding them ^^;

How does "there's multiple subplots simultaneously" equal "all over the place"?! It's perfectly clear what's happening; this is a small aside that - as others have pointed out - quite probably directly links to the 'hardboiled' themes and thus the evil manga editor; that doesn't mean that that subplot is ignored or forgotten.

Somehow, I'm already annoyed. ^^

I do like though that these arrows don't seem to be any sort of fated-chosen-lovers sort of BS, but just showing current infatuation levels even if they are wrong/misguided/quickly disillusioned.

"female birds may lay an egg when they are sexually excited and their back is stimulated" i-is that true??

Birds can be stimulated to lay eggs through several means. In the wild, the photoperiod plays a role as increasing daylight and shorter nights herald spring and summer, an ideal time to raise young. However, in the home environment, birds are essentially exposed to perpetual long days, as when it darkens outside, the inside lights are turned on so that the bird cannot follow a natural cycle. Thus they could undergo an egg-laying cycle at any time of the year. Reproductive activity is prompted by the photoperiod but other cues seem to get the cycle functioning. Some other forms of stimulation appear to be involved as well. Birds are frequently seen masturbating on toys, cage accessories or on people in the household. Mirrors or favorite toys can be objects of desire for the bird. The bird can be stimulated by other birds vocalizing in the home or merely by gently petting the bird. The bird must be comfortable in its environment, relatively free from stress so that a cycle can begin. Significant changes could upset the cycle.

So ... kinda? If everything else is right? ^^

What's she talking about? Of course mint-flavored toothpaste will taste like mint-flavored food. Similar anyway. It's just mint being minty. Nothing wrong with it.

I heard you like damsels being rescued so I put a rescue-from-random-bullying-rapists into your rescue-from-evil-publisher scenario?

Good point I guess. Had forgotten that part.

Although her obsession seems to mainly be hide&seek and her sister ;)

Is that actually the sister even? Isn't it just the snek having gotten free and using her imitation as bait? Or did the sister just coincidentally turn into a snek monster?
