I watched the new gundam show because I heard about yuri and honestly I feel like this is very promising but I keep seeing gundam junkies talk about how the love interest girl is gonna die like its a tradition and now im concerned
I think Asumi-chan makes more sense, too. I mean, it's a pretty low-probability plot, but it has an internal logic that someone somewhere might actually engage in.
Younger Senpai and this one are, I feel, more outside the envelope of sensible behavior. Like, even taking a premise of super-horny girls, they don't really 'work'. Asumi is "I can believe these people would do this" while the other works are "yeah, this is a porn plot, roll with it".
I'm not complaining, but it does push them out of the running for Great Work, IMO.
(Possibly Asumi-chan is just fooling me -- but even being able to pull that off is an artistic merit.)
Asumi-chan is legitimately well written and super compelling. This is literally just porn. I know theres been a huge boom in sex work yuri after the success of Asumi-chan but very few of these series actually deliver on character writing and plot like Asumi-chan does.
This series is literally just porn, and the story and character writing only exists as a vehicle to get our protag from one sex scene to the next.
The chemistry between these two is crazy, every moment they're together, every word they say to each other, every look they give.... It all really makes your heart race. And the art just magnifies that feeling exponentially.
This is very much contemporary, everything from the art style to the fonts used on the cover, are you saying its old school because the linework looks hand drawn rather than digital? I’m fairly certain this literally just got released.
I like Manaria but feel like she doesn't really make sense within the otome setting.
If this were just a story about a commoner in love with a noble, then it would make sense for a character introduced as the stock rival-from-the-love-interest's-past to be comically overpowered compared to Rei - she's supposed to seem insuperably better than the main character.
Rei's already the comically-overpowered protagonist of a completely different story, though, and in that story Manaria's just a minor supporting character, so it's kind of odd that she's also just coincidentally the Avatar.
the heroine of an otome game cant be too strong or else she cant get saved by the male leads lol
Wow didn't expect her to be running the whole place it explains why she's lazy and doesn't get yelled at for being so while at work lol.
Also love that we got names for them and they're not just unnamed protags.
Anyone else notice when the boss asked if she could stay longer than two months Xingyuan didn't say no? That's a start!
Okay favorite panel from this chapter.. The expression on her face knowing that Mu caught up to her after being somewhat distant when she gave her name was just too cute. So glad we have a name now Xingyuan my beloved <3
Neither of them are particularly subtle showing their interest in the other, but I’m curious how long it will take for feelings to take hold, it’s exciting
Ok, how old is this novel, actually? In the last years I've only seen female demon kings, and they are always lolis, if anything a male one would be the real surprise, was the last time Evie saw a plot like this before the 2010s?
trust me, make demon kings are still extremely prevalent in media targeted towards straight women.
