Best guess as to what this is is Shimiji dealing with the fallout of something happening to her girlfriend, and either accepting it and moving on (relies on egg girl not being the friend in the colored strips) or mending her relationship and both of them being able to reconcile and heal one another.

I might be reading into it too literally, but I felt that the prologue strip happened before the "simulation" and affected Shimeji so much that it took years of simulated time to come out of her isolation.

It wasn't exactly as I predicted but I was still pretty close. Either way, I think we're on course for a smooth ending to the arc.

Based chapter to come out while the comments are still on page 69.

I'm very, very much hoping that with how intensely Sakura blushed at the end that whatever it is that she's written before was about Takamine. I'm 99% certain that it wasn't and she's just generally really shy about it because who wouldn't be, but just think how much more amusing that'd be.

I dunno, that blush at the end was really something, actually surprised me how intense it was... and it was right at the end of the chapter so surely that's at least somewhat important :P I'd give it at least 50% chance.

I think Sakura's blush was too intense to be the more generalized embarrassment of having someone read her writing (we see this level of blushing from Mikemori) so I think it's either generalized girl x girl pining or something more specifically about Takamine.

Also yeah why the heck don't we have an aquarium tag? Is there a fear that so many series would get the tag that it'd become useless!?

I guess I'll have to do this manga faster before people blow a fuse.

Dynasty's reactions have been pretty overblown; please take your time if it means a high quality release!

Sequel to these two, per the afterword:

Happy to see another long and R18 work from this artist! His older Watamote! R18 doujins have been formative to me, and probably to that fandom as a whole too...

Very cute premise and art, thanks for the translation!

It's worth remembering here that "Amai" or "Sweet" in Japanese, when used for people, is the same as calling them weak or naive. So that also plays into how Japanese society sees liking sweets as feminine and unmanly.

I'm glad I finally found this manga on Dynasty; I couldn't find "Himawari-san" anywhere and it was only a chance Discord link that led me to "Miss Sunflower." I've been following the artist on Pixiv and always thought the pictures of Himawari-san and Matsuri and the rest of the girls were all very cute, so I took the chance to binge-read it in 3 days (would have been less without schoolwork). Thank you to the translators who kept this alive over the years!

Yeah, "pussy" would be an awful safe word.

Yeah, I'm really enjoying this manga's chaotic vibes.

If they manage to sell it, maybe a competent writing team can take over :V

it gave you anxiety?
was it because of the way the dude was drawn?
He just had yaoi face though.
...
Okay, that's still a red flag, but...

I meant in the more general sense of how cismen can react violently to finding out a woman they're attracted to is trans.

Still, I maintain that I'm not worried at all. I'm betting that the rest of bunnyman's line next chapter will be "-need proper padding," or something along those lines!

Oh, I hadn't read this one in... A couple years now. I remember liking it at the time, so it'll be fun to catch up.

I think I'd like this more if it was the first chapter for something, setting up ambiguous feelings that get explored later. As a one-shot, it just feels so open-ended as to feel incomplete. I know that sometimes that's what the author is going for, but I'm not so sure about it for this one...

Yeah, I enjoyed the rougher expressions with this artstyle and story. Scans and translation are a little rough (you can see some yellowing in the lower right hand corner on the last couple pages) but not so rough that the story can't be enjoyed.

She doesn't need to be so embarrassed about that skillful doodle of Ricardo.

I absolutely love witches (can't say if it is related to being a lesbian), so I hope it wasn't used only as a device to get the character in a different world. That being said, I'm kind of confused as to why Rosé was so fascinated with the clothing. It doesn't seem that different to what people in her old life wore and she's dressed like she came from another high school.

Yeah, it was a little odd for her to be so fascinated by what wouldn't have been too different from her presumably European-style fantasy world but to have no issues with speaking/understanding Japanese and using chopsticks.

okay I'm glad this is just the name of a place, not something else I was totally not thinking of

Also my first thought, though thankfully I already knew that Sado is a place so it didn't take too long to figure out :v

This manga was giving me anxiety as it progressed but it's evaporated with this chapter lmao

Oh, I remember this author!
A Love Yet To Bloom started as a one-shot and got serialized, so it's not impossible that we could see these two girls again in the future...

Last chapter of the volume, but it doesn't really feel like a last chapter... Maybe I'm remembering wrong and there is another volume after this?

What were the events that led to this? (I'm wholly unfamiliar with the source material)

I'm not sure if this fanartist might have their own ongoing story between these three, but Raiden Ei is known to disappear into a pocket dimension and let her puppet rule the country in her place for years at a time in the game.

I can say from experience that someone who smokes doesn't necessarily smell (or taste) like cigarettes all the time.
