Kinda weird tho, doesn’t exactly seem like something Elsa would do? Especially if in the future she and Yvonne get together. It’d be weird if future Elsa is just messing around giving a boost to their relationship, so is she trying to change the past?

I do like this kind of vibe, and I do think there is a nice romantic moment at the end, but for some reason this just makes me think even if they get together, ultimately, Yuki will have her heart broken by Harumi.

Why’s that?

No specific reason, but Harumi just gives me a vibe of someone that responds to interest shown in her. She dated that guy without really knowing him, and she's going along with Yuki on what seems like a whim of finding her cute. She's reactive in a way that makes me think as soon as the next person shows interest in her she'll drop Yuki.

Not that I'm judging her morally, or anything, I'm just saying that's the vibe I got.

I dunno, I see your point but I feel like since it seems to have already stopped/gotten awkward with the boyfriend that leaves room for yuki to swoop in.

holy maceroni autor-san is drawing fast.

I didnt expect satou to like her own sister tho. also isn't kinda wierd to "convince" someone you trust to study the thing you need? even if you trust someone, you can never be sure and maybe they wanted to do something else

I’d assume the Mc older sis was just into it herself and maybe that’s why the interest started or maybe she just heard about her gfs goal and decided she’d like to help/found an interest in it because of that. Doesn’t mean she necessarily convinced her

I take that back she totally said she’d get someone to become a psychologist. That is pretty weird

No, no, no... You don't confess to a girl and then go around kissing other girls...

Eh girl don’t reply/reciprocate so why limit yourself. But wait is this whole senses thing like just a fetish?

I can't remember--have we established whether these vampires kill people when they suck blood? I notice on this hunt there's a human kind of flat on their back, either out cold or dead. If these cute kids are doing a murder every time they go out for a meal, that's an awful lot of death on the human side and suddenly I'd be kind of sympathetic to the vampire hunters.

But maybe they just sort of drain 'em till they're woozy and tranced out? I mean, if I were a budding vampire hunter, I could see letting a vampire go if I knew the person they were feasting on was basically OK, but not if they were crouched over a freshly murdered human, you know? "Well, there she is with a bleeding corpse and she'll kill again soon, but I've had two or three pleasant conversations with her--guess I'll let her go this time!"

I think they did say it at some point and they don’t actually kill em. I could be miss remembering tho

Well, I, for one, think you are deflecting and avoiding the question, lady. :-)

yeah it's interesting to see because like, that sort of deflecting the question back on Ji Youyan can extremely easily give the wrong impression, like it's obvious here that Youyan asks this question because she's anxious she is actually overstepping so a deflection like this will only be recieved as "yes you are overstepping I'm not even going to give a real answer because of how obvious that is" and like not to put blame on Jing Xiu's shoulders but if that is a habit of hers I can see how their relationship was bad for Youyan, because that type of answering is just anxiety fuel.

Yeah from the flashbacks it doesn’t seem like she was like that at all. Seems like she was pretty upfront with her affection.

You could also read it as her ‘testing’ her. Like she’s actually asking what she thinks to see what youyan thinks of her?

But yeah I think she’s just deflecting since the answer should be obvious but she’s not going to tell her ex that truth

It's kind of amazing that we have reached the point where we are SO fucking used to waffy yuri stories and happy yuri endings that, when a manhua like Lass gets translated, a fuckton of fellas in the forum start whining:

"Oh no-o-o, not another piece on the evils of homophobia, puh-leeze, that's SO last decade! Can't the author just dump the dreary, boring sermon and have them date happily? And give them parents and friends who are supportive and caring? And make their love story a pink cloud of honeyed gay bliss? And be done with it?"

It's kind of amazing you can say this when there are exactly zero posts like that in this thread and most commenters seem indeed happy to see this brought in.

Yeah I went back to read em myself and ah yeah there’s only support for it?

I was sure Nanao would mention Asumi to Ena by name and Asumi being revealed as a customer would happen, but I guess not. Surprised we got an episode with no Asumi in it. I guess Nanao is more of a main character than the senpai now.

I’d assume even if she did, ena wouldn’t say anything about it. What with client confidentiality

Ah I was hoping for a timeskip. Glad we got it. Weird to see it end after what? Four years? Crazy. One of my first and one of my favourites. I’ll miss it. I’m almost sad lol

Yeah love the art style, pretty funny premise as well

That's not how I interpret it. Kei-chan liked her back, but left to Tokyo for college. Then they reunite years later.

I agree with you, because later on they didn't only kiss again once but twice again. That felt like the love was conveyed. And then yeah, off to go do adulting. I'm confident that they'll get back together, although poor girl at the festival with Nao. She genuinely looked happy to be there with Nao.

Yeah she was saying ‘dont launch any’ or something about the fireworks but looks like they did anyway so seems like she’s jumpin back on that ship. Poor girl

why would you treat your daughter this way. i dont get the motivations of the auntie -- is she into indou? like whut.

The mom was actually into Chiyo, Indou’s mother.

Later chapters show the we have a bad case of “It’s All My Fault,” where little Kagami’s meeting with Chiyo led to Chiyo getting transferred and eventually killed in battle, and then Kagami’s mother also blaming her.

Kagami’s mom seems to be a bit of a psychopath.

EDIT: And yeah, while I never want to slag the work of any scanlators, I can follow the story much better in this translation.

Yeah well, I've only read what's been released here (over the last three days) and all that comes as very little surprise.

I'm more surprised that it apparently ends in three chapters? oO What's up with that...
Anyway, I'll probably be patiently waiting for the White Garden TL instead of reading ahead over on Mangadex.

Wait? This manga ends in 3 chapters? I apologize if I'm mistaken. It's already late in here.

What’s this pfp from? It’s so familiar, I think?

I do wonder how Chiyo would react if she knew how her girlfriend was treating Kagami after her death

wait, since when did auntie become Chiyo's girlfriend ? I thought that is just a tearful goodbye. But that is a confession and Chiyo accepts it ?

Nothing confirmed, but that’s how I took it. And honestly, if you’re going to confess to a superior, doing it when they aren’t your direct command would be the time to do so.

Yeah I mean chiyo looks embarrassed and then happily hugs her so it seems like a confession/acceptance, or at the very least seems she’s happy to be confessed to.

That’d be weird tho, finding out your girlfriends mom was “dating”/in love with your mom

Yeah home girls noticing that reaction

Yeah that face is almost heartbreaking, I love it.

I love these two idiots.

Hinoka's expressions this chapter are those of pure fucking suffering in a way that had I not known better, I'd have been legit heartbroken. In contrast, Tsukushi's utter uselessness is infinitely amusing, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing her completely fall apart in front of her "best friend forever".

I feel like the main difference between a love comedy and a love drama is the dramatic irony of already knowing the characters are in love with each other. A drama would make it more ambiguous for one side or the other, thus making the misunderstandings less harmless and amusing (because we know they'll find happiness eventually) and more heartbreaking and frustrating (because there's just the suffering).

So basically if we saw it from hinokas perspective this would be a drama lol

joined Mar 19, 2020

Lmao I love that in her OWN flashback the signs that hinoka like her are so clear, they’re not even almost ambiguous and yet she’s still like “she only likes me as a friend”

Sooo... That wasn't Kureha?
What the f--

I'm confused too, I guess she has been sleeping with the princess before she got into a relationship with Kureha.

Maybe but it doesn’t seem like it. She’s wearing the uniform from the end of chapter four and in like chapter 2 or 3 she saw that princess for the first time so it seems to have happened after

But also yeah wonder how kureha feels about that

Ey she made a friend.. I don't really have a good feeling about her and I don't know why..

Same honestly, maybe because Mc commented on her maybe getting bullied? Like a ‘acts nice but she’s not so secretly a meanie’ and Mc just doesn’t notice? I mean I doubt that’s it but it gives me that vibe

Glad komera decided to keep it short and sweet instead of prolonging it and never finishing. Definitely a cool world and while it was somewhat disjointed, you could pretend we’re just seeing snippets of a larger narrative. Especially since this is supposed to be their ‘past’. The characters were fun too and I loved those fits lol

Is this like a twin situation? Why was the emperor so interested in qianxue until she wasn’t anymore and was more concerned with the mc’s health?

Why contract sisters then? Seems like a weird way to shoot the romance thing in the foot?

By the way for anyone who is unaware, this seems to take place in a “cultivation” novel setting, which is kinda like wuxia but cranked to 11.

If wuxia can be described as a historical(ish) martial artists and the use of “qi” energy, then cultivation novels would be in the xianxia genre, which takes the martial arts and internal energy base from wuxia, but takes it from low fantasy to high fantasy. Expect a magic system based on yin/yang, and taoist iconography all over the place, demons and celestials, and all manner of supernatural beings and creatures from chinese mythology.

In these kinds of novels the protagonist basically “cultivates”/trains to unlock new supernatural ability and ascend from being a mortal to essentially become a demigod/full fledged god. Along the way they accumulate legendary techniques/abilities, rare magic items, and usually a large harem of women.

Think of it kinda like the equivalent to japanese isekai but rather than a jrpg inspired euro-fantasy setting its got a chinese mythos setting. But the fact that the genre primarily appeals to teenage edgelords and theres a billion trashy novels about OP protags and massive harems is still the same.

(I only know this second hand so anyone who wants to jump in and correct me feel free to do so)

It's been a while since I've read any, but I recall there being quite a bit of sexual assault. Isekai has slave-owning protagonists, xianxia has sexual assault.

I really need to repeat the bit about the trashy novels. I found Xianxia a bit less grating at first due to it's settings being less familiar than yet another generic European fantasy setting, but it's pretty much all slop. I can only consume so much junkfood media before I feel yuck, and I get enough junkfood from Yuri, which is usually much sweeter.

Lol same. I’ve only read like two but got around 400 chapters into one and 800 chapters into the other and that had SA. It’s been a few years now but they really were trashy. I liked how large they were though- that’s the only reason I stayed.
