We already have https://dynasty-scans.com/series/yuru_oyako why is this here?

One is for the series, the other is for the specific anthology the stories so far are in. Future stories would be included in one but not the other.

Pretty sure I've cleared out the whole "trap" business. But if I missed anything please let me know.

From here forwards, using "trap" to refer to people will result in your post getting deleted without notice. Convoluted justifications for same are also not acceptable and will be deleted on sight.

Oh why? I don’t ever really use trap as a reference to characters anyway, but I’m curious as to why you’re so against it?

I have no intention of getting into a debate over this. And I do recommend others do not either. There are loads of places that explain why people object to it, that would do so better than me. I recommend looking around for them.

It is also off-topic to this manga's discussion in the first place, so I won't be spending more time on it.

EDITED TO ADD: The matter has also been referred to in our rules for quite a while, so I would expect people to be able and willing to act accordingly by now.

Could we kindly stay on topic, please?

Even the Ghost In the Shell stuff is pushing it, but I'll leave it in place for now.

What does it matter? The character is doing everything short of screaming "TRANS RIGHTS" so the tag is 100% justified. It's part of the subject matter of the pic.

And it's a bit rich complaining about headcanon and assumptions on a site loaded to the gills with lesbians who the source material either doesn't confirm or outright contradicts. So let's leave Farfetch to Pokémon, shall we?

Melon Bread discussion 24 May 23:21

Does melon bread actually act as a good eraser for paint canvas or is that Alina just being... quirky again?

Not melon bread, plain bread, it was historically used in place of erasers before it was discovered that rubber had the same propriety, this is where Karin messed up, melon bread is sugary and thus can't be used for the same purpose.

Fun fact: If you spill glitter, you can effectively clean it up with a slice of bread.

Oh bread, is there nothing you can't do?

I think that of somebody drew a huge Venn diagram of which tags are mutually exclusive of each other would clear up this mess of an ‘ahem’ debate about the use of this tag to label mangas. Someone from admin should spell it out and quell the flames by making the boundaries of what qualifies as “wholesome”.

Here you go:

Now I want to see what an unironic wholesome rape combo would look like.

Maybe that one with the poison futa ninjas that end up married and raising each other's children?

With regard to what the tag should be used for, and bear in mind that I don't officially have anything to do with placing tags, I'd say that wholesome is more an approach to a story than, say, whether it includes sexual content or not. I would imagine it would be rarely applied to sexual or violent content though, especially the more extreme or kinky sorts. But if there's a pervading sense of niceness to the whole thing even with those elements, I guess it would be okay.

Who the fuck drinks hot lemonade?

I had some leftover cranberry juice (which I normally don't like) from a fermenting project, and I've been drinking it hot with honey. Turns out it's really good that way, much like a herbal tea.

Hot lemon with honey is a pretty common, if not medially recommended, folk remedy in the west (well, North America at least) for sore throats. Since you can taste things better warm than cold, I would imagine for those who like lemon that would be pretty good.

question:

im new to this site. whats the etiquette here concerning commenting on old chapters? asking since there appears to be one large discussion thread for each manga. do i keep comments about previous chapters that may have released years ago to myself so i dont clog up the thread, or...?

Just confirming, commenting on old chapters is absolutely fine. If it's a thread that has a lot of newer chapters, it'd help if you make it clear you're talking about an older one to avoid confusion, but that's about it.

Weren't this already uploaded and then removed? Why it was removed in the first place if it's uploaded again?

There was a conflict a while back and the scan group requested their stuff be taken down, which was honoured. There have since been changes at the scan group's end, so the original conflict no longer applies, and they asked that they be reinstated. So here we are.

I'm pretty hyped tbh, always liked the diversity in the yokai they face and how gruesome the enemies tended to be, it was so much fun
Don't know how much of the original cast we'll see again, but I'm pretty interested in how all three leads are girls, because of how unexpected and uncommon it is for an adventure/action series

Magic Knights Rayearth would like a word.

Either I have become so unawear of how much off a weeb faggotte....

Not even sure what that's supposed to be, but If you could leave the "fag"-adjacent stuff wherever you found it, that'd be swell. Given the site is full of gay stuff and the forum equally full of gay readers, no need to make it all weird.

And no, in case you're wondering, you're not in trouble or anything.

Sorry I didnt really think about choosing the right words in this as it seems. Overall it was just a shitpost and tbh I dont even use the word as it was originaly used. I used the term weeb/weeaboo faggot as a joke on myself not really to insult anybody other than myself tho especially on this website it sure can look a bit weird too choose exactly this kind of phrasing. Next time I will a) write with more care and b) if needed weeaboo trash instead xD

(Thank you tho for pointing it out. Might have saved me some future trouble xD also I could really keep it down woth swearing words... these days even if meant ironically I often find myself using them too often :/)

I hear you on that one. It can be tempting to take language that's absolutely fine in one context (say, among your friends while you're playing a game) and just start using it everywhere, where folks might not get your intent so clearly. Thanks for being so chill about the whole thing.

Can the moderators please just ban breadcannon7000, from this thread?

https://dynasty-scans.com/forum/topics/15378-haru-and-midori-discussion?page=22

They made the account solely to wish death on the author and call them a piece of ****. I know a staff member warned them already, but IMO a warning falls completely short for extreme behaviour of this kind, and besides they're likely not going to use the account for anything else, so the warning is irrelevant. Please get rid of it and clean the thread up from that hateful garbage orz

(Also, IP ban? They clearly knew what they were doing was utterly unacceptable well before the warning, since they weren't going to use their main account for it. Sorry for the backseat moderating, but everything about this left a horrible taste in my mouth.)

P.S. Thanks to Nezchan for cleaning up the Cat Maid and Mistress thread, it was greatly appreciated.

No problem. Done.

Thank you, Nezchan.

On a more on-topic note... I'm rather weirded out by how Nekomaid is still smiling when she clings unto Ojousama in response to noticing the foreign smell on her. You'd think she'd be scowling/pouting as she determinedly tries to exorcise the interloper's scent before finally snapping out of her instinct-driven trance.

My experience with cats is that they're more obsessively curious about strange scents, rather than upset by them.

Okay, let's dig into this.

First, wrong place for a lolicon/pedophilia discussion. I'll be closing comments for a bit while I delete all of them.

Second, where even does Bugpope and TheYuriTomboy calling MarqFJA87 a pedophile even come from? At best that's way over the top, and not acceptable. Same goes for IAKi100atT calling them a "creepy weirdo". Short bans all around.

That said, MarqFJA87 did overereact, and I have no idea why they were going on about the lolicon tag when this series, well, isn't tagged that way in the first place that I can see. It'd be great if you didn't jump the gun like that in future.

That should be fine for now.

'There is no simple label that really accurately captures the relationship these two have. "Life partners" is probably the closest although that label is so generic and broad that it also fails to really give a proper picture of what's going on.

"Boston marriage"

I think the combination of both tags works, for me. I was a bit confused by polyamory alone, because I went in expecting - well, more than one point of contact between the four of them. But harem by itself just reads like a genre convention, and not a description of an actual non-monogamous relationship. Having both of them is more descriptive, to me, but then...

I don't know, is it a necessary distinction? Is this what people want if they go searching for a harem manga? Do people need to know what the specific vectors are in this unambiguously polyamorous relationship are, before they even read it? Hmm. I could see an argument for harem either way.

The manga was cute, anyway.

There are RL poly relationships where some participants are not dating each other. I should know, I've been in one.

The simplest version of this is a V shape, where two people are dating the same person, and are totally aware of and fine with each other. And very likely are on friendly terms. But it can get more complicated than that. Poly doesn't have to mean "everyone with everyone".

To me, harem has a lot more to do with presentation, and usually in manga it's several people competing to be in a monogamous relationship with the central person. They're competing, not collaborating.
