I fully embrace my willingness to overlook problematic relationship dynamics just because it's Yuri. Same with my willingness to overlook tired tropes and clichés. All I care about is getting to read stories about girls being together, even if it's a little fucked up.
Looks pretty promising, I'll definitely keep reading. I might have to take some notes though, I must have 12 different manga going right now with the same basic '' office person/salaryman turning to a stranger/sex worker/professional for the bare minimum human warmth that their life lacks '' :P It can get kinda confusing !
I get the feeling that if the author had another volume to work with, they would've probably expanded on the time travel logistics a little more. My guess it was after ch24 was written and that other time traveller was established that news of the impending end reached the author and they had to wrap things up. (blah blah American brand name for Lynx deoderant etc.) Given that this is primarily an ecchi romcom, it was probably a smarter move to dedicate the remaining time to a saucy climax and a happy epilogue rather than cram in a rushed explanation of how the time travel works. Granted we don't have any answers, but we're not given any lazy ones either.
I dunno, the fact that it was seemingly not even the same timeline cause seto doesnt remember meeting older, time traveling nana in highschool, but still ended up being affected, somehow, by those events seems a little poorly conceived.
Does anyone else feel like the author just had a checklist of things that needed to happen but didn't know how to do it organically so they just sped through all of them?
1. Timeslip+identity reveal
2. Older Nanasawa confession
3. Younger Nanasawa confession
I was expecting each one of those things to have some buildup and drama but they happened almost simultaneously and with very little time for the characters to actually process everything
I think that's not a bug, but a feature. It kind of makes sense for those events to happen rapidly. Especially since Seto's "I have two hands..." moment comes after the return trip from the training camp, so theres been some time for her to, presumably, sort out her feelings, and if she feels like she loves both Nanasawas, then it's a logical choice to try and date both of them. And frankly the buildup for this has been basically everything up to this point, and there's much drama yet to unfold.
Since reading ch2 and ch3 most of my anxiety has calmed down. To put my fears to words, I was so scared of their savings running out, not having food, and what insurance they'll have if someone gets sick or injured. I'm not familiar with how healthcare is in japan, but where I am it's tied to your job. Given its tone, i doubt such things will be addressed so I'm sure I have nothing to be afraid of.
They've been on the island for like half a day. If their savings were that slim I doubt they would have made the trip at all. It's still a possibility in the future but as far as story pacing goes itd be putting the cart before the horse for that sort of thing to come up before they've even got their bike back.
Komacchi has a big bundle of her own issues, what with the whole "my main goal in life is to be the nicest doormat ever" complex shes got. In the face of that sort of serial masochism, Akira's "my dad abuses me so I was gonna murder him" thing is small beans.
i don't get Nagisa. she doesn't seems to be really into nakano. as if she wanted her only to annoy sakurako. that's the kind of vibe she gives.
Shes a Kuudere, shes not particularly expressive or outwardly emotional. So it seems like shes a little cold from the outside. And we havent gotten much of the story from her point of view aside from the prequel/flashback story 4.5° girlfriend, which, being set in the past, doesnt tell us much about her feelings towards Nakano.
