I love the art style of the eyes. They look so big and cute and transmit so many emotions.
In related news, I really want a sequel of Yuzumori San where they are adults. Just a one shot would be enough.
Oh, the little surprise in Fuwa's face seeing Yukiko as a succubus was super cute.
I feel a bit sad for Yukiko now that she has to choose between her girlfriend or her childhood friend.
A poly ending would be ideal, but I don't think they will like this idea. Maybe Konomi accepts it because having a permanent food-dispenser can save her time, but Fuwa and Yukiko are a whole different story.
This manga really gives me emotions. On one hand, I think Uta deserves more than Kaoru and I would be happy if she finds someone else, but on the other I also want her to be with Kaoru as she was happier living with her than with her parents.
Heck, there are straight female artists who draw yuri and have the exact same lack of experience as many male artists do, yet you wouldn't call it a male gaze there, right? Let's abandon such disastrous terms in the future.
Oh, of course. I never stopped to think about it and sorry if I generated useless drama.
I think that perception is a bit off-kilter when talking about hentai. I've seen countless female/lesbian authors who would fit this type of "male-gazed" thing you speak of. In many aspects straight men and lesbians appreciate similar things. The response to this artist's works by female readers are usually positive. If people think it's hot then it probably is. Hentai is seldom realistic about sex, so it's not like accuracy is a big factor.
Don't get me wrong, I liked it and thought it's hot, and I know some female authors (like Mira) like to draw that kind of scenes.
But even if I think they're hot in hentai or porn, once I tried those postures irl I started to think why it's so common in porn and hentai. Maybe It's just me who had high expectations and felt a bit dissatisfied afterwards, I don't know how to express it.
But again, I don't see male-gazed yuri hentai as a bad thing, but rather as something that a lot of cis men think it's how wlw sex works 100% of the times.
I never thought about it, but I do love to see a manga about an asexual homoromantic girl.
Ayanero Taicho is quite progressive compared to other authors (his latest yuri hentai had LGBT pride) and this is good, but his lewd scenes are a bit too male-gazed.
Each chapter escalates in a way that is so terrifying and exciting! I feel real bad for Hina though. She seems to really like Ai and because of that she tolerates her twisted "affection," but it's quite clear to me that she isn't actually a masochist and that she doesn't enjoy the ... "games" like Ai does. And Ai is just,,,, oof .... piercings are a huge squeak for me and that chapter genuinely had my heart racing and then in the next she straight up chokes her and holds her out a window to get her to piss in fear??? Fucking wow. I'm really enjoying this manga and I am terrified to see how it continues to go. I won't be surprised if the manga takes a dark turn and ends with Ai pushing Hina too far and resulting in a permanent injury.
The "best-yuri" case scenario I can see is that Ai realizes she's doing wrong and starts to see Hina as a human and stop with her extreme sadism (but maybe keeping consensual not-dangerous games).
The "worst-best" case would be Airi pushing Hina so hard she ends up injured and maybe disabled (permanent or not) and Airi feeling guilty and taking care of her.
The "real best" case would be Hina realizing Airi is disgusting and leaving her.
And obviously, the "worst" case would be both girls dying from a dumb game (uncontrolled electroshock for example).
Other options include: Hina is really a masochist but the author doesn't want to show that side of her; Airi being caught by teachers and expelled; or Hina being blackmailed into leaving Airi.
I love how straightforward they are. They both are okay with matching every single day, no misunderstandings, no drama. Just two girls being hyper omega friends infinity + 1.
(but a bit weird that she carries that enormous bag of clothes to school).
Well, I lied, I said I wasn't going to read more but I ended up reading the eight chapters that are translated (in Spanish). A summary of those chapters: Chapter 5 was even worse than chapter 4 in my opinion. Asphyxia, Airi threatened to throw Hina out the window and "watersports". Also they have been caught by Hina's friend. Chapter 6 was "cute" the first half (breastfeeding, a bit too NSFW considering they are in middle school) but Airi didn't liked to see Hina happy so she started to physically abuse her Chapter 7 Eating insects isn't that disgusting to me compared to drinking urine, but it seems like Hina was really disgusted by it, puking again And chapter 8 the worse. In this chapter we see that Hina talks with Airi about the person who caught them, but we see Airi only cares for her fake reputation (some of her friends are fake friends) and not for Hina and her pseudo-masochism so she decides to leave her, I even started to doubt she's even lesbian in the first place
I believe Hina isn't a masochist, but she really loves Airi and that's the reason she accepts to do wathever she wants.
I don't think I can read it. The previous chapters were more bearable, but this one made me feel the pain. Even if they're M x S (and I have doubts she's really a M) it still makes me feel sorry for her.
Are next chapters more extreme? I don't really want to see for myself.
