What is even going on in these comments!?

Someone said the f-word, consequently opening a door for users to share what they believe is the root of their discontent in regards to living in today's society.

I guess this is what happens when a site attracts both lgbt people and the type of people who think the evil "sjws" want to ruin everything. Of course some people are both, but I really don't get that one.

Sorry, I can't even, this art style is just too bad, and that awful uniform design makes it all the worse.

nah i think she is lesbian
didn't she have something with girls before?

She didn't date anyone else but it has shown her reacting to other girls, like during her beach job.

The way the author refuses to allow them to change in any major way

In what way you want them to change ?

Literally any way at all, they are just extremely stagnant characters, and I personally don't find then interesting to read about because it's usually very obvious what they are gonna say and do next.

Shouko and Seri are my actual favourite relationship. They're more grounded than Sakurako's perfect devotion to Kasumi. Shouko and Seri both pull their own weight and are forwardly supportive of each other. The kind of relationship one wants.

Agreed.

This might get me hate, but, personally Ive come to see Sakurako and Kasumi to be the least interesting characters in the story now. The way the author refuses to allow them to change in any major way really hurts their characters in my eyes.

I've only read the first two chapters and so far my impression is that this seems like a bit of a manic pixie dream girl story.

Not enough Mei (and sadly no KotoMei) so this is trash

Kidding aside I do love this ending. Feels a tad bit too fast, would've maybe preferred it to be two chapters, but it just fits the series really nicely. This series was so fun and cute and it's sad to see it go

Here's hoping we get a bonus chapter with the final volume.

"You don't have to understand everything, I don't either", I love that.

This manga was so great, I'm sad to see it go. Sure, it wasn't the most expertly plotted thing in the world, but it didn't have to be. Sometimes a cute little manga were all the queer characters are happy and healthy at the end is all you need.

Eh, I don't think it's boring personally. I know a lot of people on Dynasty are quick to say, "oh these slow burn wholesome stories are so boring", but at the very least I enjoy them.

I can't speak for anyone else, but for me, it isn't the slow burn that I find boring, actually I kinda prefer slow burn over rushed romance. It's just for me manga like this tend to be filled with chapters where little to nothing happens until the last few chapters, and I prefer stories with actual plots. It's great if others get something out of it, but it just ain't my cup of tea.

I find it amusing how many people here and everywhere think of "feelings" as something akin to God's voice and command that occupies a highest position. Instead of what it actually is, a signal that things are fine or not fine.

The concept of living with friends and finding it more fulfilling than being with some kind of mythical chosen one is an ancient idea going back to the examples of, for example, Epicurus and the monasteries that succeeded. Granted, this is not the same thing, but it's interesting how modern society makes all this seem unusual.

Edit: though I do think perhaps this manga could do better if it touched on real issues like the flaws of the Romanticism ideology that forms the modern imagination of relationships and marriages. We'll have to see if it ever gets there.

Lol, it's hilarious how smart you think you are. Anyway, ignoring all the silly philosophy about marriage going on in these comments, this manga is just boring.

I have two main thoughts, 1) Kaoru is such an intensely unlikeable character that I could never root for them to get together 2) they actually never should have got together, the entire premise would work much better if the two leads learned to move away from their unhealthy codependent relationship

Wow, this has got to be the worst yuri I've seen in a while, with a shitty premise, and leads more unlikeable than even the worst american sitcoms.

I was excited to see what this mangaka would do after the excellent Run Away With me Girl. Unfortunately, if this is the direction they are going with it, I'm gonna have to opt out.

Recent research has uncovered an interesting fact. Sometimes human beings act irrationally because of this phenomenon known as "emotion".

HAHA!! Your so smart and clever! How foolish of me, to think I could ever measure up to your incomparable genuis!

It's not actually about college, paying for college is just the only sacrifice she can actually stop Asahi from making to make her point. I wouldn't be at all surprised if she rescinded her refusal as soon as Asahi started making herself a priority.

I think the fact that it's college is important, and part of why this is the last straw for her. Subaru's graduation from high school is the first real chance she has to free Asahi from looking after her, and thus free herself from her guilt for dominating her sister's life. Going to university full time is committing to spending four more years as a dependent. And I think letting Asahi support her while she goes to college would really intensify her guilt, because then she'd be enjoying a privilege that Asahi herself had to give up.

It's still dumb to leverage your own future like that to make a point.

I don't know, I do think Subaru is right that it kind of sucks ass for Asahi to use making sacrifices for her as an excuse to just not care about herself at all and make no effort towards her own happiness and dump the burden of feeling responsible for that onto a kid. Everything Asahi does revolves around Subaru and she's staked her entire identity on that and it must be a source of pretty major guilt that she's the reason her sister refuses to have anything for herself.

Sure, but the way she specifically used college as a way to make this point is incredibly dumb and childish. I'd hardly call it some unusual sacrifice for her to want her younger sister to go to college, that's normal.

joined Oct 27, 2018

I guess I get where she's coming from, but I did not like Subaru's behavior this chapter, obviously characters are allowed to act out, but the manga seems to be portraying her as correct in some way, but she's just not this time.

And maybe this is just a little personal issue but man the 'And I even dressed like a man for you!' bit kinda annoyed me? Like yeah sure, Chinami's mad Yukako folded to heteronormativity and broke her heart, but there's nowhere that she made it seem like Chinami had to dress more masculine for her, it just feels like a shallow dig at the reasons why lesbians often dress more masculine than het women. >_>

Yeah, the part about clothes is just weird, she isn't even dressing all that masculine, it's just pants, pretty feminine looking pants too. I don't really know what the point is.

“She won’t ever be horny again. I want that too...’”

Why tho, that sounds terrible

Y'know, I kinda get it, if you've ever been horny to the point that it interferes with other parts of your life, it can really begin to feel like a bit of a curse.

Problem with this manga, and the mangakas other works actually, is the complete unwillingness to follow through serious moments without immediately undercutting it with sillyness.

How did some of y'all come away from reading this and think she has body dysmorphia? Simply changing your look is not body dysmorphia.

I really like that she made the concious decision to become handsome and worked at it to achieve it, it's nice
