Artwork is fantastic; however, too much drama for me— I’m out.

If I could throw a rotten tomato at this manga, I would have thrown the rotten tomato. Ah, well, not all mangas on this website are perfect.

There should be a tag for mangas that deserve to be labeled “Better read something else”.

This suggested label would be the opposite of “Wholesome”.

"Step-siblings can get married."

... what?

Japan has a law like that for sake of business succession.

What usually happens is the guy who marries into a business family becomes a family member at the same time they are getting married, as adopted son of that family. Business adoption.

That’s a unique twist on becoming a vested shareholder. A family business staying small enough to stay private, but entice top workers with inheritance bonuses and generous family gifts on the holidays. That sort of stuff isn’t taxed… Pretty clever.

Because that wasn't a result of her hobbies and natural inclinations, she was just trying to get for eyes' attention.

Ok. Got it. Thank you.

Just got a bit of confusion: the girl with the cut hair, is she “transgender” or “tomboy” because she identifies herself as “Boku” which in Japanese means “I” for males. Anyone noticed that, too?

It’s kinda nice to know the boundary or threshold between those two tags. I mean, “Kase-san and Yamada” manga has a tomboy character, but she hasn’t identified herself as a guy. If it’s just a small thing as being socially identified as whatever they pick rather than going through the arduous phenotype changes, I’d like to know.

I’m pretty sure she’s not transgender. She was using male terminology in the hopes that her friend would see her as more masculine (and thus attractive), but there’s no indication that she actually thinks of herself as a man. Pretty sure it’s just an attempt at seduction.

Ok, not transgender, so why not the “tomboy” tag? She did say on same page she suppressed her femininity by cutting her hair. Does she have to do more than cutting her hair to get the “tomboy” tag?

Cute one-shot. The four-eyes is a little clueless, but given enough time and help, she’ll learn the ropes to a relationship.

"Step-siblings can get married."

... what?

Their divorced parents, at least the ones who have custody of them, are getting married. It’s like the “Brady Bunch”-Yuri style.

I’d watch that for a dollar! (OG Robocop reference)

26 is middle aged?

God I hope not. I'm already 26.

I’m 31, guess I should start preparing for retirement. Pension should be kicking in aaaanyday now…

Talk about pressure! 25.6 years average marriage age for women over there (in 2017). There’s gotta be some leeway for educated women… surrogacy should be welcomed. Government policy to allow 3 kids/woman is bonkers. I think it would be funny to have kids to pay taxes… that’s my “Modest Proposal”.

This sort of social pressure to get married so soon does force a debate on whether women get educated over there or not. Those in Afghanistan can’t even have that debate. My stance is in line with Lee Quan Yew’s views: the alphas get paid, the betas don’t, and the gammas get snipped.

Looks like relationship isn’t gonna last. The manager is moving onto bigger and better things. So who gets custody of the cat?

That’s some Force skills right there! That’s like shooting billiards blindfolded. There should be a PSA: Not even professionals try this at home!

Very cute. An interesting stepping stone, or phase, in a relationship. I don’t know where it would fit: after confession but before buying rings? Or maybe after “roommates” but before marriage?

Well, that's a nope from me there. And also, I really wouldn't call that "foiled rape attempt"

I agree. “Rape” tag should be included.

I would like to have “Bad End” tag come back.

Art style and chapter length reminds me of mangaka Mikanuji. This manga is superbly done, would like to see chapters longer than four pages. Just out of curiosity, how long would it take for an artist to come up with four pages for a chapter?

I vaguely recall the artist who does “Pearls before Swine” say it takes most of the day for a single strip, and a whole weekend for Sunday comic strip (at his hangman art style, too). It’s daunting task to do four pages a week, by my amateur estimate.

I don’t think that phone number will be washed off, it will be tattooed on her skin “Memento”-style (backwards, so she can read it in a mirror’s reflection). Fun to see uncle’s reactions, kinda mirrors the reader’s reaction, too. Goth girl can easily pass off as her five o’clock shadowed uncle with a black permanent marker instead of girly makeup.

I’m not up on fashion so can someone tell me: Is Gothic a subset of grunge or is grunge a subset of gothic fashion?

I think it's important that Kokeshi gets as good as she gives in this.

Chapter 21 is the best in this manga! The Shoggoth girl interaction with MC is hilarious!

Not a shoggoth. Dodomeki are admittedly a bit obscure, but they do...err, exist?

Well, I’m thinking of the closest critter that has multiple eyeballs, excluding a Beholder or Medusa… I gotta go with H.P. Lovecraft’s inventive imagination with his “Shoggoth”… sheesh, I’m such a nerd! I’m not up on ancient monsters across the pond.

Edit: Thanks to Wikipedia, I’m surprised to find out the dodomeki showed up before Lovecraft’s critter… makes me think where he got the inspiration for his own critter—he just needed a proper backstory and he did it in spades.

Wow, it’s really rare to see a new manga release with all the chapters taking most viewed spots on this website! Brava or Bravo or, crud I forgot when to use them exactly and I don’t know gender of manga artist… Great job! More please.

I’m hooked. I’m sticking with this to the end. It took four short chapters to catch my interest, and maybe the translations releases will be similarly sized.

Her previous one shot was a good introduction to her fantastic artistry, so I’m pleased to see this series here. More please.

So, it was never axed and the haters are just bullshitting.

Chill, dude. No one was hating on this. I only said this was axed because that's how it looked to me. I mean, if chapter 28 is the intended ending, that's a surprise because there's no conclusion in chapter 28. You don't have to believe me, just go read it yourself. The raws aren't hard to find.

Maybe the bonus charter gives it some sort of conclusion. I don't know. But my point is simply that the ending from the serialization was inconclusive and unsatisfying. That's not hating

28 chapters and no resolution!?? I’m out.

The antagonist MC is a moron anyways. I mean, laughing off a sincere confession as a joke after a kabedon is a stroke of stupidity.

I didn’t think this would be completed… and judging from past comments in the thread, I don’t think I’d like to finish reading this… the manga just dragged on and on. No wonder it was axed. The editors made a good call on this one.

What a cute manga: Furniture making more furniture. I don’t know if the helper girl is going to be fired or promoted for failing to keeping author focused on her writing.

The red flags, they're everywhere!!

It's like a bullfight with how many are flying around

And like most spectator sports, the messier the better. I’m in… but I’m mostly trying to clear my mind of that https://dynasty-scans.com/series/lilies_voice_wear_wind dumpster fire. With my now lowered expectations, I might forgo the sugar mama drained dry trope and consider this better than what I’d recently read.

Readers demand accurate tagging of manga… and whatever happened to “Bad End” tag?

Need a tag for letting down readership expectations: I humbly submit, “No Sales”. As in, nobody will buy this if published elsewhere.

Glad I didn’t read this based on comments and the last chapter. Yes, there are such relationships IRL, but it doesn’t have the literary payoff for readership (they’re not even ROOMMATES! God what a let down). Good luck getting this picked up for publishing stateside.

This manga deserves the “non-binary” tag as the relationship went no-where by choice.
