I was curious so I looked it up and "beach women" (磯女, iso-onna) are indeed established in yokai folklore. Like how she's depicted, they're stealthy and use their prehensile hair to capture people to eat. (I'm reading they're also supposed to be conventionally attractive and sultry but artistic license and whatnot.) I'm looking forward to seeing what other obscure water yokai this series will involve.
lol I wish I went to this high school, it would have helped me figure stuff out a lot sooner
Adressing passable femboys by he/him is pretty cringe, ngl.
1) The ability to pass does not reflect a person's pronouns or gender. Using someone's presentation to determine their pronouns is actually really shitty.
2) Pronouns and presentation are not causally linked. You can be fem and use he/him. You can be masc and use she/her. Same with any other combination of presentation and pronouns.
3) irl femboys use all sorts of pronouns. The correct pronouns are determined by the individual and that's beginning and end of that.
4) Giving a shit about cringe is the greatest cringe of all.
ftr I'm a trans woman. That doesn't buy me any authority but because of that, this sort of discourse I participate in all the time.
I think that literally may have been one of the best epilogues I've ever seen or read or heard. A lot of emotional content in just one chapter that shows that the characters' lives are continuing to evolve but that the central conflict is truly resolved.
