I’m glad it’s a one-shot. It’s painful enough to read through it once.

The end to a beginning mangaka’s initial work. This one is well done... fun to see the changes in improving artwork over the years.

#3 is best one in this series so far (of 5).

I don't understand the discourse that says "you're only /actually/ trans if your sense of your gender isn't affected by how people treat you" because gender is social. No one is born with a gender; we (society) assign gender to babies and when it grows up it will either accept or reject this assignment. No one's sense of gender is unaffected by society and social relations. I'm not gonna (for example) contradict some cis guy's gender like "you only consider yourself a man because masculinity was imposed upon you from birth. If it weren't you wouldn't have formed a male gender identity", I'm gonna have some good faith that he's done the introspection that I'm in no position to do for him.

We cannot really say that gender is entirely social. Gender roles on the other hand, are entirely social. Things like clothes, how we are "supposed to behave", what we are supposed to like, can all be viewed as completely arbritrary, and therefore, as a construct. And the "assignment of gender to babies" are more like imposing expectations of gender based on genitalia.
Gender also has a biological and psicological aspect. It is extremely hard to properly convey to a cis person, as trans, how it actually is to feel unconfortable with your body. Something like it doesn't match. This manga shows it very clearly with the table scene. You can see gender dysphoria being manifested towards the primary and secondary sexual characteristics. But it goes way deeper than that. There is also, yes, the social aspect, but they are only a part of the whole problem.
I hope I could clarify a bit on what you don't understand.

First, I can assure you that I am well acquainted with gender dysphoria. I do not require your assistance in this respect.

Second, you misunderstand what I mean in saying that gender is social. This may have been my fault for being imprecise. What I meant is that every person's conception of their own personhood with regard to gender (to whatever degree it is in conflict or accordance with the hegemonic ideology) is irrevocably molded by the social forces of the society they reside within (because gender is socially reproduced and enforced). To say that a person is only trans if their gender is pure of social influence is therefore patently nonsensical. (Also, when I said "I don't understand" that was polite for "this is wrong and incoherent".)

To be transgender is to contradict the social forces that assign gender (male, female) to infants. This contradiction is necessarily socially contingent.

MY HEAD HURTS!— “Kabloooie!” (Head explodes).

I’ve never seen the view count be so high before (36k-ish so far) on this website. I think somebody will snatch up the rights publish this one elsewhere soon.

Edit: Whoever portrays “Takatou” in this will get Best Supporting Actor Award...

Now that was a very emotional story. Had me tearing up more than once or twice. The characters are all so well made that they all feel like real people. And Takatou is such an awesome friend. He stuck with Chiaki and helped him even after they grew up.

I do have a question though, what was Chiaki's father's reasoning for not wanting to go through with the cancer treatment?

If I may speak my opinion: It’s a question of quality of life. The cancer may be at an advanced stage to where even chemotherapy may not eliminate all of the cancer— so his health will suffer with the chemo and he could still die anyways. The costs for such treatment is horrendously expensive, and hunters relying on kills for food don’t seem to be rich. So he either lives like a pauper or dies earlier like a hunter would without the medical care.

Some compromise must have been reached between dad and daughter over covering the medical bills.

Movie material...

There should be a tag for this for this kind of manga. I put it on par with “Sunstone”... for it helps explain things to those who are clueless.

Holy innuendos, Batman! There’s more pussy jokes than Catwoman buying pussies in a pet store!

I consider this sequel to “Maka Maka”. Excellent!

If there were “Betas” added in with this tripe, then we would truly be in a “Brave New World”.

A fine yuri manga.

Naah, that’s groping tag... oops, didn’t see that hand print there. But I still don’t think it deserves your aforementioned tag because it happened in the immediate past, not the present.

You gotta see that hand whaling on that heinie to deserve the spankING tag.

Sheeez! Those are some spider woman nails she’s got!

I guess that’s the origin story for “Beloved L”...

Hmmm... appears out of order. This should be “previous”.

I'm growing accustomed to this kind of story. Wish an author would throw in a three way to make things a bit spicier.

You mean: Love Triangle? Or Threesome? Or threesome on a freeway?

A sequel would be good for this manga.

Caution: For the first five minutes, this causes insomnia.
Recommendation: Continue to exhaustion and insomnia is eliminated.

This “Die Hard” chapter is hilarious! I can totally relate to her predicament.

I’m so glad this website exists. I can read all the yuri worthy of reaching publication for free and decide to purchase the really good and deserving ones. Thankfully, with this website, I’ve determined I can spend my money on something more enjoyable than buying this particular manga.

Huh, it’s like Neo and Trinity in “The Matrix”.
