Just finished 24.
A slight bit of drama but ok for that, but
OUCH OUCH OUCH OUCH. Hina is a psychopath. I think if she has no empathy, other than knowing how to manipulate people.
When Ai wants a double suicide, Hina has no problem doing that. But when Ai changed her mind as they go deeper and deeper on the beach and said she does not want to die, then Hina stop, as if it is "Do what you want, but I know what you are thinking" If Ai did not change her mind, Hina will just follow. I think this is the darkest chapter, Ai searching for suicide method on the net, read newspaper to see if anyone is looking for them. Then they run out of money..
I love you cruddy is now the most scary suspence manga in Yurihime.
I wholly disagree with the idea that Hina is apathetic to Ai's wants and desires. I thinks it's very much the opposite. Hina doesn't want Ai to die, because she means the world to her, but Ai wants to, just not alone. Hina would give up on her desires, and even her life, just to fulfill Ai's wishes.
This whole chapter makes me sad. Despite all of the fucked up shit we've seen, I still want them to have a happy ending. Giving up would just make all of the pain and suffering meaningless.
@BlueDsc I'm a reader of the manga. It's going great so far. The first episode is a fantastic slow burn, and it handles the series' morbid humor and sense of discomfort very well. The animation on the ghosts is also pretty good.
This really needs a sequel. Typically stories like this conclude with a lesson about how changing yourself so drastically just results in alienating the person you're trying to impress. It feels like it just stopped halfway through.
I love the moment were he gains the motivation to help her, but is completely halted by his lack of knowledge in how to go about it. It's a crushing realization that always hits at the worst time. I've definitely had moments like that.
I love the decision to show this through Shida-san's perspective. We don't know that much about how Nagisa thinks yet(and at this point in the story, we don't need to), so showing a little bit through someone else is a great idea. The author also uses this time to set up the backstory of the POV character, while also establishing everyone's motivations. Great work all around.
This alpha omega shit is so unbelievably cringe, like it's not even ironic or self-aware
While this isn't my fetish, it certainly isn't the worst thing in the world. There are plenty of disturbing, and outright harmful, paraphilia out there that people have an astonishing lack of self awareness about. I don't really think it's required for something so self-contained. Barring that, this is a fictional work centered around a fetish, and really shouldn't be belittling it's intended audience by being ironic or self-aware. People don't want their kinks being criticized while they're trying to get their rocks off.
@Hylarn Their dynamic never felt jokey to me. I've never understood the love for the Kiara x Calli ship, as they didn't know each other before Hololive (if I'm not mistaken), and neither of them have seemed that into the ship. They certainly don't have anywhere near the incredible natural chemistry that Okayu and Korone have together. Even if they aren't "dating", it's very clear that they are very close friends and care a lot about each other.
3 pages in, and oof, we're really rushing through the exposition huh. A tip for aspiring writers: If your characters are telling each other things they should already be very familiar with solely for the purpose of informing the audience, scrap the scene and start over. Any info that the characters should already know should be removed from the scene and put somewhere else. You can do this through narration, through the action being shown, or by having them inform someone who is unfamiliar. Show-don't-tell is ideal, though.
That was alright, but the action scenes are incomprehensibly drawn. No idea how the car scene actually played out :P
Because I didn't want it to sound like she was actually hurt or upset that she was rejected, although it did irk her a little. So I just wrote "Feels bad man" without thinking.
Only after someone else pointed it out I realized what I did.
It's alright. The rest of the translation was hella POGGERS. I was def peepohappy by the end of it.
The idea of feeling your mind regressing along with your age is honestly such a terrifying thing to me.
Not to me. I wish I could go back to being younger in both mind and body, and I'm only 27. I don't look at things the way I did when I was a kid, and when I think about think about feelings and experiences I had in the past, it becomes apparent that I'll never experience them the same way again.
