The only hololive member I'm aware of that's confirmed gay is Matsuri. She has talked about her ex-girlfriend, as well as brought up her fear of getting too close to the other girls, as she doesn't want to develop feelings for them. Matsuri is very much hopelessly gay/bi.

In contrast, the other "canon" pairings I am familiar with are TakaMori and OkaKoro (I'm less familiar with Noel/Flare, but they are apparently very close). TokaMori never feels genuine to me. Afaik, they did not know each other before joining hololive, so their chemistry is very weak. OkaKoro on the other hand are close friends, and you can tell. Their playfullness feels very genuine, even if it is just platonic.

The thing people need to remember, is that simply following kayfabe isn't enough. Just because they play flirtatiously, doesn't mean they are attracted to each other. They all do this. The information Matsuri gave was deeply personal in nature(she is very open and intimate with her viewers; to a fault I would say), and speaks to aspects of her life that we simply don't know about the other girls. Please temper your expectations, and take the yuri goggles off when dealing with real people.

Nice contrast between the parents and the kids attitudes.

Tong Tong's mother is incredibly supportive of her daughter on everything and is always trying to help her in her unique way> Tong Tong inmediatly tells her about her self-discovery of liking girls and decides to actually pursue a relationship with her love interest.

Lin Xiao Lu's mother is (aparently) the worst kind of helicopter parent, always judging and controling of her daughter's actions> Lin Xiao Lu is terrified of anyone discovering she likes girls and her first reaction to realizing she might be attracted to someone was to try and distance herself from that person.

Really showing good and bad parenting can afect the lives of those under it.

That's an interesting way of looking at it. I assumed that she distanced herself from Tongtong because she was afraid of falling in love with her, but this seems like another possible scenario. I suppose the author will explore this as their relationship progresses. At least, I assume they will, given how much thought they've put into the story so far.

God, my heart is melting. Tongtong's relationship with her mother may very well be the greatest parent/child dynamic I've ever seen. It is such a breath of fresh air to see how Tongtong isn't afraid of being open about her sexuality with her mom, and how her mom is fully supportive and willing to help her through her journey of self-discovery. It makes me want to strive for that kind of connection with my own children, should I ever become a parent myself.

Anyone interested in continuing the tag discussion would be best served to head over to the Help thread and continue there. Much easier for me to keep track of.

What tag are you looking for? Just one to represent old age?

We could certainly use an old age tag, but that wouldn't necessarily cover what I'm describing. A death/dying tag might be helpful, but I could also think of plenty of situations where it would be a spoiler. A way to hide spoiler tags would be interesting, but then comes the discussion of what constitutes as a "spoiler". I certainly think this is worth considering, especially having been spoiled by tags before. That's a different discussion though.

If nothing else, this manga should probably have depressing as fuck, given what I've seen in the first chapter and the comments.

Yeah, the spoiler part is tough. I'd love to have spoiler tag functionality, but it's not in our pipeline, so we'll work with what we have. While I don't think a Dying tag has much applicability in non-spoiler situations, I'll think on what might work better. This kind of leads me toward my preference for a general Trigger Warning tag that just includes all spoiler elements (including positive tags, many of which aren't tagged for spoiler reasons).

Any tag changes to this story will have to wait, but we'll have something done with them soon, sorry for the trouble.

Contributing to the tag discussion, how about an author tag?...Maybe something like "Sudou Yumi, beware!"?

We're certainly up for those. I'll have to think about that tag in particular, and how it relates to her other work. Thanks.

I don't have very much knowledge on web design, so I'm not entirely sure what you mean by pipeline. Does it have to do with database stuff? If a system for differentiating spoiler tags isn't possible, then I can understand, but it is a real shame. The ability to check the individual tags would be ideal, rather than having them under Trigger Warning, which, and excuse me if I'm misinterpreting, seems far too vague to be anything but confusing.

I'm already afraid of my own inevitable demise, I don't need this. In fact, I think we should have a tag for stuff like this on the site. As someone who is absolutely terrified of the finality of my own death, and by extension, growing old, I would rather not read stuff like this if I can avoid it.

And how can she charge her phone?

Well Micro USBs have been around since at least 2009 maybe earlier so it's not that much of a stretch. Plus most people I know carry their charging cable/adapter with them when they head out so it's not that much of a stretch for her to just have hers on hand.

Every modern phone I know other than Apple's rubbish uses USB-C. I've not seen one triple camera phone that uses Micro USB.

But yeah, I know a lot of people who carry a charger around so that's most likely the case. I'm more curious about how/if she has service

It's a concession we'll have to make, but there is no way she has service. Her phone would support neither the network types or the sim cards that were available in 2011. She would, at the very least, have wi-fi, but no way to make any calls.

She's using a Galaxy S10 (I have the same phone). It uses USB-C, the specification for which was only published in 2014. She would have to have her charger on her.

DDLC needs a wingman mod, where you just help the girls get together with each other. It might already have one though.

Alice is pretty awful. Prince opens up about his inadequacies to her and she gives him the encouragement to make his move, then crushes him (literally) during his big moment.

Some kind of Parody?
The story is incoherent as fk.

Seriously. It doesn't even need to be fairy tale characters. It would be the same without them. The line "I'm no longer the old Snow White" doesn't make sense as a stinger. What does that even mean?

I'm mildly annoyed how few people are talking about the reversal here.

I find it super interesting with how it subverts expectations. You at first think that the abusive one is Kuzawa due to how she treats Mamiya but then it's revealed that Kuzawa is miserable doing this stuff but she'll get physically abused and rejected if she doesn't do it.

It's kinda messed up but at the same time morbidly fascinating.

^this
Very clearly meant to be reversal that gradually gets worse and worse the more you read on. The revelation that Kuzawa loves her, but isn't allowed to act on those emotions in any way, even in a moment of supposed intimacy, is what really did me in. People on this site gotta realize that there are well written stories hidden in content that they may not like. Tmfly is a very talented writer, and she knows how to pack a complex narrative into a short format.

Ahegao works a lot better as a reaction to a kiss.

How much nipple exposure does it take for something to be NSFW? Shouldn't the whole series just have the tag at this point?

I totally feel her, though IMO BJs aren't really as great as people make them out to be.
I'd be totally down with switching bodies and equipment for a month with the other sex, though, as I'd really like to have sex in a female body. (Has to be for a month to be fair, wouldn't want to get only the good bits — one period of cramps, mood swings and agony is a must at least.)

Not all periods are painful.

Diverse character designs, strong personalities, and an adult cohabitation premise that isn't dreadfully realistic? This could be really good!

People reading the manga, "Are you feelings connected by Yuri BDSM?" and complaining that there's BDSM be like:

If anyone wants to support Neji directly, she has requests open on her pixiv. She did a fantastic job on my profile pic, and it was only $46 and a two week wait. Well worth it.

Men drawing boobs through clothes: "heheh boobe :)"
Men drawing boobs without clothes: "oh god oh god uhhh how do physics work again, where does this weight go, what are the right shapes, ive never seen a real boob before, aaaaah oh no okay I'll just draw the exact same lines I always do when the clothes are on, and hope none of my readers know how boobs work either"

Let's shit on the artist's skill while calling them a virgin. That'll make everyone laugh for sure.

Im pretty sure there is not a single dynasty scans comment section without someone saying "meh" and complaints about the moral integrity of a comedy yuri manga

It isn't dynasty scans if someone isn't complaining about the lack of moral/relationship perfection.

The author has done such a fantastic job of fleshing out Minami's character in just a few chapters. I sympathize with her a lot, as someone who hung out with people in high school just so I wasn't alone. It's a struggle to build any kind of relationship on such a poorly constructed foundation. It led to a lot of fleeting "friendships" and none followed me past graduation. I'm really glad she's no longer trapped in that cycle.

@Fuwafu It's a good thing then that futanari isn't trans, nor is it even remotely close to what intersex genitalia even look like (which is inconsistent due to it's nature as a birth defect), so if anyone takes offense, then that's on them (hence the "taken" part). As for the other words you have mentioned, these are terms used to describe porn. You're not going to make societal headway by doing something as futile as trying to erase words from the internet.

It really blows me away how offended people get that other people find them sexually attractive. You may have insecurities about your appearance from a lifelong affliction, but that doesn't mean that other people see you as negatively as you see your self. There are plenty of trans people out there that are more than happy to strut their stuff for an online audience. They don't seem to be all that offended by this "hyper-sexualization", which I very much appreciate.

Spend less time obsessing over what people jerk off too, and more time making sure the children of tomorrow are more accepting than the adults of today. Otherwise, the only thing you can do is control what people say, and how they think, and I hope the negative implications of that don't need to be explained.

@Norainhere It's a form/position of sex. Like 69, it is non-gender-specific, so it isn't exclusive to gal pals.
