Oml that was so cute I think my heart exploded.

I genuinely love how terribly frustrated Takahashi is by everything Itou says. XD

Wtf is this?!

XD

It’s beautiful and I’m curious, but I’m starting to get very frustrated with this pacing. Maybe they should have aimed for biweekly releases or something, rather than trying to get these beautiful pictures out in tiny clumps.

It’s back!! I love this one! Thank you!

I’ve been buying the books as they come out, but I’m not yet able to read them. XD

….. to be totally honest, I’m not 1000% sure what’s happening here. XD

What the heck happened with that boy that apparently ruined their friendship? Especially considering how very not-present he is now, and how Komaki is trying to very literally get into Wakaba’s pants at the arcade. O_o I can only assume it was some totally wild misunderstanding? Komaki taking a joke too far, not realizing she’d actually hurt Wakaba’s feelings?

You know. Magic or no, the technology shenanigans Grandpa is pulling is actually pretty impressive.

I adore this recurrent theme in the story. The idea that the game had such a shallow interpretation of the characters and their relationships, and that the background characters you didn’t even get to see had a major impact on their lives. But that does kind of imply that, since the main beats of the story are still in place, we’re still on the train to doomsville. XD

I feel like I know exactly where this is going. The author is doing an excellent job laying out the foundation for the upcoming plot, so I really don’t expect any major surprises, but it feels self indulgent and lovely to read regardless. In much the same vein as the theme - even though I know where it’s going - I want to see the way their relationships grow and enjoy the journey getting there.

Poor Natori. XD “Does she think I’m a pet!?”

I think the transition from fantasy to reality is very subtly conveyed in a way I can get behind. We definitely start parasocial, but when she starts becoming dissatisfied with the fantasty and more interested in and curious about the real person she's delivering to... ionno. That the ex-idol is dressing up for her as an idol and isn't showing up as honestly as she was at the start is honestly coming across as more parasocial to me - because she's recreating the environment that they started in believing that's what the delivery girl really wants from her.

Ionno y'all I thought it was cute. It's a shame it's a oneshot. I kinda feel like you could easily write a whole story about this kind of thing.

.... Why "Anemone in Heat"?! I've seriously been avoiding this because I assumed it was going to be some sea-tentacle-monster girl tomfoolery. XD

"Hur dur I've seen enough anime to know where this is going." Were it not for the excessive "lots of hugging" tags I might never have had a peek. But again... just figured... the sea-anemone monster girl probably had lots of arms to hug with... golly how have we gone so long without the NSFW tag if she's in heat all the dang time?

Anyway. This is cute. Right. Carry on.

W-what?! Why???

I can totally understand being upset and fleeing considering Ruriko's insecurity and everything, but the slap was a bizarre choice.

Wow, that was actually pretty painful to read. I think this has gone well past the point where I'd have to accept straight up that the other person just isn't remotely interested. Even someone who's ace would at least have an inkling of what you're shooting for.

I know, I know, it's supposed to be funny, but where do you even go from here? XD She could probably ask Yuzu to marry her and Yuzu might say yes thinking it's some kind of cute game.

Tfw Hiroko will somehow find a way to misunderstand this situation and think something else is going on.

W-wait, didn't Mistress catch these two dorkatrons together in the kitchen in the second chapter?? XD But now she's wondering about it?

Diana looks like she might go down the yandere route...

Yeaahhh... I get the feeling that we're basically going to tell the same story, but the characters are swapping roles and positions. :0

I kinda felt like things with Diana were moving too fast for this to be the endgame. She still doesn't get poor Natori's name right, and even though she's paying attention to Natori's feelings it really seems to be wrapped up in whether or not Diana is getting what she wants from her. "Is she paying attention to me?" "Am I making her happy?" "Why is she looking at Lapis like that when I'm right here?"

It's neatly thematic considering Natori's insecurity complex, too. Like, they both struggle with the same feelings but they're being driven in very different directions. Natori is conscious that she might be selfishly vying for other people's approval, but Diana very much isn't. Natori is getting the support and encouragement she needs, and those points in Diana's story that would have driven her to become the protagonist are being pulled out or replaced because of Natori's unintentional interventions. :x

Lapis won some serious points here, though. I wonder how we're going to handle her classism and shenanigans, later. I'm going to guess we're going to bring back the "I might not always be your ally, but I'll never be your enemy" bit, but hmmm... xD

This manga is spoiling me really badly after a bad week in the office. XD <3 Blessed AriteDrop for working so hard to get this out to us.

Something is up with this.
Like
I've been reading this from the beginning and I get why people keep saying she must have amnesia or something, because there's just something bizarre happening here.
The writer is approaching the subject matter in earnest - at least, as much as any romcom with any other adult or similar-aged pair might - goofy background shenanigans included. You almost expect a "happy ending"? So there must be an explanation. Right?
But no.
I don't think there is.

I think I enjoyed this more when it was a dorky shortform comedy. It didn't make me think about the consequences. I could just laugh at the jokes and move along. However, the author is asking us to take into consideration that Mai is a giant who often seems perfectly aware of what she's doing and saying that, perhaps, this isn't as problematic because Tae couldn't possibly force Mai into anything. But that isn't how that happens all the time. It's why so many survivors of minor attracted adult lovers often blame themselves.

I don't know. I like the characters and I hope things work out for them. I'll probably keep reading.
But having a wee bit of a struggle here in my little corner.

Pfaw, kudos to the translator here. This must have been extremely dense to work through.
