This is wrong. Tali is a suit full of spiders, what's this humanoid nonsense?

Listen, I know the phrases carry literally the same meaning, but I still find it mildly infuriating that they called horse-archery "horsebacked archery".

We used "horseback archery," not "horsebacked" (I never would have let that get through!), and it's because "horseback archery" is the standard English translation, according to our translator.

It's a pretty stereotypical plot ("I didn't think it was okay to do X until she came along and told me it was okay to do X"), but it seems nice. The art is good, and the characters seem decent, even if they're a bit on the young side (I prefer high school romance stories over middle school; I think it feels a lot more believable - though maybe this is just because I had a horrific time in middle school).

It's always so funny when a manga is like "she's so tall", but it turns out she's only like 170cm.

I mean, they appear to be like 14-ish (she's a second year in middle school and the black hair girl is a first year in middle school). That's pretty tall for that age, right?

They're in high school.

Uhh... alright. I guess it's just the art style then because they certainly do not look it. Her height also isn't very odd for high school (equivalent is 5ft 8in). Yeah, it's a bit on the high side, but I doubt she would have even been top 3 women in my rather small high school classes.

Statistically, average is a couple inches lower over there, I think, but it's not -that- different.

First of all, I'd suggest basing judgments on what school they're in on, you know, what they actually say, not on how tall you imagine they should be. Second of all, the average 17-year-old girl in Japan is 5'1". This is the weirdest and most baseless thing to complain about.

I'm kinda rooting for best friends route, even though it's probably not what's going to happen

Thinking they're mutually exclusive is why straight people get divorced so much.

The ex who was a temp got a permanent job working with the MC.

Writing, art & character design all by different people; is this based on an anime or something?

It’s based on a series of light novels.

25 chapters?... I... No, I'm dropping it, it doesn't go anywhere. I don't want another 30 chapters of tsundere who said shit to toss homeless girl away but homeless still hopes for some shit, it's not for me. Not at this pace.

I don't hope for a happy end. They both either end up alone or with someone they don't love at all or learn to love but after a veeeery long time. But for sure not with each other.

Someone didn't watch the spoiler for Ch.25.

I watched. It took 15 chapters for meaningless confessions and 10 more for some action to develop and we still can't be sure that something will happen. There is no action, Kagami is dense as fuck, Indou is out of this world (in negative meaning), it's not for me, not at this pace. Dropping it, don't try to convert me back, thank you.

What the hell did you do Kagami? Jeez.

Are we all caught up on the releases now, or is the group just going on hiatus?

We only had a very productive weekend, but no hiatus. As the credits page says, we're aiming for at least a chapter a month from here out.

It's not over. There are 23 chapters out so far, and 24 is in the next issue of Yuri Hime (published next week).

That's it, if by ch15 they don't move more than just clumsiness/tsundere line, I drop it, because it's just so stretched out and slow just AAAA

Read to find out what happens ;)

Yes yes you’re both in love with each other.
Someone pls remind me again if they’re cousins or something (I don’t think they are but I can’t remember)

They're not cousins. Indou calls Kagami's mom "Auntie" but it's an "older woman who took me in and educated me" thing not a "literally the sister of one of my parents" thing.

*insert cousin dialogue from Mean Girls here*

Serious question, I saw some sources onto that this manga is finished, how many chapters are left? I'm a little tired of constant hit-ups on MCs but not between MCs

It's not over. There are 23 chapters out so far, and 24 is in the next issue of Yuri Hime (published next week).

So this maiden thing, is that the term that the older girls use to pick a clueless virgin girl in order to deflower her? I seem to get that feeling. What a bunch of asholes if that happens to be the case.

It's more of an eromenos/erastes sort of thing: think the Theban Sacred Band. As a trained classicist, I lobbied pretty hard for the use of "eromene," but our translator told me that that would be just as incomprehensible as "chigo" and that the point was to translate it into English, so "maiden" it is. There are enough conversations in the manga about what the word means in this specific context that it should be pretty clear?

The determination of how much of that account is entirely fictionalized I leave as an exercise for the reader.

My assumption was that the “curse” was something the mom made up to protect her from revealing herself to someone who would freak out and murder her. In a story in which mermaids are real, it’s definitely possible that this curse is as well, but it just sounds so much like something a parent would invent to keep their child out of danger.

[EDIT] But really, if the curse IS real, why on earth would it care about the laws of Japan or any other country? It’s definitely about love, not a legal contract.

I feel like their tits grew three sizes there on the last page.

So this is what I understand so far:
- Detective Death is a demon from hell.
- Her sidekick is an artificial humanoid, a "wax doll" manufactured by demons. She isn't considered a "real person" by the demons.
- DD and Wax Doll somehow fell in love and began a torrid love affair.
- They were found out and all hell broke loose (pun intended).
- They ran together and now they live on Earth, and DD works as a hitman for hire: she kills "bad people" in exchange for a part of the lifeforce of her customers.
- She needs the lifeforce to keep Wax Doll alive. Well, "animated" may be a better word.

Did I got everything right?

"Wax doll" doesn't have to be literal. As it seems humans all have a metaphorical "wax" to represent lifeforce. The "wax doll" could just be a normal human, replenishing her "candle" with the "candles" of other humans.

The collection this is from is specifically "non-human x non-human." That still doesn't mean the "wax doll" is literally artificial (she could just be a lower class of outsider), but she's definitely not human.

I'm thinking there's about a 60% chance that tall girl and camera senpai are sociopaths.

That teacher is stupidly hot.

I guess that answers my question.

For what it’s worth, I don’t expect the teacher to hook up with any of the main characters, nor am I particularly interested in the possibility. I just want to see more of her.
