What did she even do? She fucking said no

The "dame dame" thing is not a clear sign of rejection, specially in manga. I know that probably isn't compatible with your Western sensibilities, but you've got to remember this is written by a Japanese person. There was no rape. Liz just fucked up. And she knows it hence her regret at the end.

And I will say it again, I hope Maki dumps her ass.

dame dame is one thing, but she literally said "Let me go" which is something pretty different.

It's really, really, really gross to me that people think this chapter at least is her fault at all.

Because it is her fault. She wasn't so drunk she didn't know what she was doing.

Anyway. I hope Maki dumps her ass. Liz doesn't deserve her.

What did she even do? She fucking said no and tried to push her abusive ex off her when she was pushing her around in a bathroom stall.

That looks uncomfortably like rape to me tbqh

That's jus blurry consent. She is too drunk to have a clear mind but it's still clear enough to consent. I can't really call that a rape. That's way too much for someone who don't seem to be against it to begin with.

If you don't have a clear mind because you're too drunk... it's not consensual. That's how consent fucking works. Beyond that, she fucking says no and to get off her and tries to push her off. What do you need her to do to show she doesn't actually want this, pull out a knife and stab her or something?

why the fuck are you people blaming her for that?

Cause Senpai already dump her and use the "we're 2 girls, we have just playing around" card before plus earlier she said she have forgot her and wanted to change. But as soon as Senpai start sweet talking, it's "she is so cool" and metaphorically get wet.

Wow manipulators are manipulative and abusive relationships get their hooks into you and fuck you up for a long time, and it's really easy to fall back into them after you got out, especially if your abuser finds you again and stations herself in a position of power over you again. More at 10.

It's really, really, really gross to me that people think this chapter at least is her fault at all.

Alright, chapter 5 was kinda bad, but jintor said that that was the last bad one, so I'm looking forward to the rest!! (Also, by kinda bad I just mean... more manipulation...)

jfc that's clearly not something she wanted. That looks uncomfortably like rape to me tbqh. She got her drunk then pushed her around in a stall while she said no - and to get off her - why the fuck are you people blaming her for that? In fact, that's not uncomfortably like rape, that's literally just rape.

That's a pretty bad fucking translation lmao. Also I hate people using the word threesome for polyamorous relationships not sex, it just doesn't connote the right thing.

Well, there's Mimi Mix, which is kinda like that - it's not a genetic trait and is instead a surgery, but no one minds if you get it and tons of people do.

I was confused by the question because it seemed like the fact you were missing is that polyamory is like any other relationship, the end goal is a happy, fulfilling relationship.

I'm polyamorous, have been in polyamorous relationships, and spend many of my comments on the forums talking about polyamory.

To me it looks like she's older then, getting ready to go in for her job, looking at old pictures of her senpai, who she is still with, reminiscing and smiling.

They're eventually going to be aiming for all being in a relationship with eachother

Well, based on the tags and on the first two pages, that should be the end game.

Yeah, I know, but they seemed to think they just wanted to kiss eachother or something? I didn't really understand the comment.

Oh... a poly yuri manga, interesting. So what is the thing that the girls are aiming for? They have to kiss everyone, or...?

They're eventually going to be aiming for all being in a relationship with eachother - right now our MC wants to join the school her senpai went to, the senpai is potentially gay for the tutor but we don't know, the tutor is probably gay for the senpai and is starting to fall for MC, and MC might be catching some feelings for the tutor.

Damn the Uto and me comparisons are just getting stronger I can't believe she canonically has a praise kink now.

there are no notifications because as far as I know there aren't @'s or any way to specifically direct a post to someone other than quoting them or typing out @username. Anyway, you can go to where you know your comment is and just manually read things after, sorry that that doesn't help much.

Alrighto, thanks for letting me know!

Mhm! no problem

oh those are good extras.

And I see the Ebisu-san and Hotei-san comparison - definitely not in tone or art, but otherwise for sure

Aki is being so reasonable about all of this. It makes it sad that she's got no prospects outside of Yori. She's like the pinnacle of the "suffering best friend" character.

Nobody:
Dynasty Scans: The friendzone exists for lesbians

Christ you guys, every time....

Yeah... being friends with people is actually good, even if they're not attracted to you and you are to them. I very much know.

How do you guys figure out someone has answered you or mentioned you on here? I dunno what else forum is the best to ask this question, so imma just ask it in this forum. Like to my knowledge there's no notifications on here (or maybe I've missed it)

Also hope that everyone had a good day. I had garlic bread for lunch today so it's been fantastic

Thank fucking god someone pointed out that wanting to fall in love with someone, not because of societal pressure but just because of that person, is just... being in love with them.

Wanting to fall in love with someone because they're in love with you is still social pressure. I'm kind of annoyed at Himari because she apparently hasn't even given the concept of "do I want physical intimacy with this person" any thought in her alleged efforts to determine how she feels about Yori despite it being like the most obvious possible baseline to start from vis a vis romantic feelings even if it's not definitive. Makes it seems like she actually hasn't given this any real thought until Aki kicked her in the ass with a deadline.

I don't think she does because of social pressure though - she wants to fall in love with her because she legitimately admires her as a person and wants to be with her and get closer to her, not just because she wants to fall in love in the abstract - in contrast to in BiY. Imo, wanting to be with and get closer to someone that loves you is at least some form of love, if not romantic (and to me different forms other than familial are slightly less clearly divided than to many other people).

hello everyone.. i have been busy for the last 6 months or so ,so what good new or trending yuri are there now a days ? what is the replacement for bloom into you after it ended ? also did some good ones ended ?
share some with me please so i can get back to read xD

Crescent Moon and Donuts is looking amazing, looks like it's shaping up to be close to as good as Bloom Into You, covering deep themes already.

Other than that, we've had some great developments in polyamory in recent times, between Canno's new series, An Easy Introduction to Love Triangles (which is not actually about a love triangle exactly) starting up recently and There's Weird Voices Coming from the Room Next Door! being translated as of recently, and Whispering You a Love Song just updated again today, which is also similar to BiY.

Oh honey, poor baby. Anyway I'm rooting for polyamory, though I know it's never happening.

With this random character just introduced that we know almost nothing about? But why?

...Because I like polyamory? Why do people root for yuri between 2 side characters that barely interact in other manga? Because they like yuri. It's not exactly complicated.

Well, I think two side characters together is a bit different than two main characters with a side character. Anyway I was simply curious, you do you.

Okay, then shipping the female lead of a het romance with a female side character because you like yuri.

Heh, I doubt anyone here would root for a poly development in that scenario, probably not even you.

Some people are bi or pan - I'm not, so I probably wouldn't, unless the leads had a nice and good relationship and the side character did too - but that's not what I was getting at either, I meant the people who ship F!Lead/Side character because it's a lesbian relationship and they prefer that to the main relationship are similar to me, shipping the main pair with a side character because it's a polyamorous relationship and I prefer that to a monoamorous one.

I haven't finished this work, but as I was reading Chapter 32 (Vol. 7), i couldn't help but wonder about why Kurokawa has trouble with other people and doesn't seem to understand when she likes or dislikes something... I suspect she may have low-spectrum autism of some sort. This is just an idea I had, and it probably isn't true, but my younger brother has low-spectrum, and he's very similar to her in many ways (maybe despite being good at sports, as everyone in our family has terrible asthma...), so I just thought that could be the culprit. Someone who's finished the whole series, I would deeply appreciate it if you could tell me if you think/know whether this idea was good, or true even!! Thank you very much!!

Oh autistic Kurokawa is a fucking amazing headcanon, thank you. I definitely like that, she reminds me of some of those traits in myself too in a lot of ways - I appreciate this a lot.

Reupload confused me so bad, I was just like... huh, I recognize these characters - oh.

Anyway, I don't think the boi is horrible, but immediately outing 2 people to a bunch of other people and making them gossip, especially in a homophobic society, kinda sucks.
