Lmao how tf are her parents gonna die from a carriage accident like that!? Like two horses can’t create enough velocity to have a great enough impact for death! And it looked like they collided head on as well so even if they were each going 60km/h each, there would have been more than enough cushioning from the horses colliding with each other to lessen the impact! And the carriage rolled over anyway so the only way they would’ve died is if they got crushed which is unlikely considering they were inside and the carriage is still intact, they somehow got trapped and starved which didn’t happen, or they were flung in such a manner that resulted in breaking their necks or something which is plausible but very unlikely. God damn lazy writing

It was perfect. This is the most flawless story on this site. It was beautiful and heartfelt from beginning to end. I’ve been enjoying this series for years now and it’s ending was as absolutely sad and powerful and uplifting and bittersweet as it could be. The details in the final chapter like Heath’s missing arm (which was also the arm her ring was on), the rings on her necklace, Lily still blind in the afterlife we’re all so perfect. It hurt so much that Iris knew she was going to be on her own again, that tear speaks such volumes. After the last chapter I didn’t expect a time slip at all, I thought it would be one last happy moment to wrap up the story, but this last chapter elevates the whole series so much more. I’ve never had a story get me so emotional, I still remember when we first found out that Lily knew Heath was a monster the whole time they had known each other. The dynamic was beautiful, every character was so real. Marie losing her voice to the mermaid and her forgiveness was such a beautiful moment, there is just something about this that elevates the story so much. I have no doubt this is Neji’s magnum opus, their masterpiece. I can’t wait to read what they do next, because this story goes so far beyond what it first set out to do. I will love it until the end of time.

The characters in this story are so well written, this series is really on another level when it comes to quality

I'm so annoyed with this again. Couldn't keep the sarcasm out of my post

Hey, do you want me to spoil you the entire thing so you can be done with it?

Actually, I might as well as just tell you the brief gist of things so you don't waste any more time. Here goes:
After this, there's this overseas student that's a childhood friend of Claire and she can use all 4 elements. She's pretty much there to advance Rei's and Claire relationship to intimate.
After that, Claire goes to Rei's hometown, where she meets Rei's family and some shenanigans happen; Claire learns how the poor are suffering etc.
It turns out Prince Yuu was forced to become a man. So Rei concocts a plan that would turn him back to a woman and live in peace with Misa. The king was impressed by Rei, so he promotes Rei, Claire, and a girl named Lily as his personal investigators.
Their job is to snuff out corrupt nobles, where there's this one guy that's working with the empire, and his daughter is Lily. He inserted an alter ego inside her, and that's the masked figure in this chapter.
Eventually, the king dies, commoners revolt, and the guy with the empire sides with the rebels to bring them under the control of the empire. In the meantime, Claire turns herself in to the rebels out of guilt, and Rei has to rescue her.
Eventually, she does, Lily is back to normal, the guy working with the empire goes to jail, the country is reformed, and Rei and Claire get married and adopt a twin. One of them can use all 4 elements and the other becomes a master swordswoman.

Then there's a sequel, where Rei and Claire go to the empire as transfer students to basically destroy it from within. There's this warmongering empress and they have use her daughter to bring her down.
But it turns out that she was expanding her empire in order to amass a force against the demon queen. The demon queen is the real Rei, where it turns out that Rei and Claire were actually scientists in the past who created a loop system to save the dying population.
In short, the loop system allowed Rei to reincarnate countless times and romance Claire that many number of times, but eventually she got tired of it. Since the only thing she cares about is Claire, she couldn't accept this and decided to destroy the world.
Back in the present day, Rei, Claire, and now the empire all team up to fight this evil Rei, where there's this A.I. that had her administrative power taken by evil Rei and have to get it back.
Once they defeat evil Rei, the A.I. then turns on them and erases Claire from everyone's memory because the admin power was passed off to Claire.
So Rei has to go on a rescue mission for Claire again, and succeeds. Then happy ending.

Okay so I read the first part here and thought “okay that sounds cool, I guess the story is gonna be alright”

Then I read the second part and all I’ve gotta ask is “what kind of crack was the author on when they took things in that direction!? If that spoiler is true, then that sounds like one of the stupidest ways the story could go. I definitely ain’t sticking around to see this story shit itself into oblivion

Holy fuck the story of this is shit. I can’t tell anymore if the author wants us to feel sympathy for Liz or not. Cuz fuck she is the worst. I guess I hope Maki and the other girl get together so I can see a happy ending and Liz has to deal with the consequences of her actions, but I’ve lost faith in the author at this point

Best friends had a top alpha and bottom omega

Couldn’t get into that one, I lost interest when the alpha raped her and then the manga kept trying to convince me that it was the omega’s fault and she was the bad one for trying to leave. And then tried to convince me that the omega being angry at the alpha “irrationally” for putting her in vulnerable positions when she was younger muddied the waters somehow.

That’s my problem with ABO. Sometimes it’s fun. Sometimes it makes it really easy for people to justify r*pe and put systems of oppression in their fic and then cape for them.

Best friends was my first introduction to ABO and after the rape scene, I was completely turned off by the genre, aside from the fact that the whole scenario in general is so fucking weird. Then I looked at the history and some other stories and omegaverse immediately because one of the most disgusting things I’ve seen online. I hate when a new one shows up cause I’ll probably read it out of morbid curiosity because they genuinely make me sick

WOW so Rinna just gets unapologetically friend zoned and ends up alone? WTF AUTHOR!? Weak ass rushed ending, did this series get the axe or something? Feels like the author straight up tried to take back the fact that this series was a competition between Rinna and Sayu at the end and basically retconned that Rinna was in love with the main character because “she gives it her all when it comes to love” and loves everyone. That is such BS. This ending was so damn rushed and unsatisfying and has amazingly gone from one of my favourite recent Yuri mangas to one of my biggest disappointments. It’s going to feel real bad taking this series of my favourites list. God dammit author…

Yep this story has lost me lol. I hate Himari now, she is so ignorant it is infuriating and Shiho is still the single most unlikeable and unsympathetic character on this site. And the series has just gotten so boring now, I can’t stay. Im still gonna keep reading, but the series ended for me about 10 chapters ago. Now it’s just a shitty fanfic that I want to watch crash and burn

Alright this series has officially lost me. I don’t give two shits about a commoner revolution and class division. It’s been done before and done better. I got into the series because it was a fun dynamic and Rei was an interesting and quirky character, but she has become a generic Mary Sue who does whatever it takes to keep Claire safe. The magic and stuff with the princes was good, but this class war is not what I came to see. If I wanted to see people suffering from class division and revolution, I’d read a history book or look at Reddit. Not where I wanted to see from this story at all

Whaaaat no poly ending!? No way! That makes me so unsatisfied! Apparently there’s one chapter left, but I don’t see how it can have a satisfying conclusion now. The introduction of the teachers being poly was clear foreshadowing, otherwise those parts of the series would be COMPLETELY POINTLESS. I will be very disappointed if the author doesn’t fix this, because it’s what the series has teased the entire time. You don’t introduce the concept into the story and not use it at all. It’s poor writing to take time and use pages go emphasize a potential plot point then do nothing with it. It’s bad storytelling

Also this feels SO RUSHED, like the pacing has been terrible the last 4 chapters

You know something I've always found strange about these school mangas is the supreme power the student council seems to wield. Like back when I went to high school I know we had one but I don't think I ever knew who they were.

Pretty sure it’s cultural differences, Japan’s schools give student councils more power. I was in the student council for my high school and all we did was host school spirit events and stuff.

HOLY SHIIIII
That was fantastic! I’ve been wanting that president to get his ass beat for months now! But omg where is the series going now! I’m so hyped! I really hope Akita’s dad and the prez both actually die by the end of the series, the author has done a fantastic job of portraying them as true monsters!

Can’t say I enjoyed it. Run away with me girl was great but this wasn’t nearly as good. It wasn’t even depressing, just made me feel bummed. The ending was a let down for me, although it is appropriate. Don’t like Nacchan at all, she pretty much dug her own grave. Kyouko was fine, her part in the story was pretty sad but I’m glad she’s moving on. The sister was kinda meh, didn’t like how she led the guy on but at least she’s cool now. I think I’m just gonna try and flush it from my memory and find something better

Dammit why’d they have to spoil this series with cross dressing?

i know lots of people dislike shiho and probably feel no sympathy towards her but i’ve always liked her and after this extra i feel kind of awful.. shiho was already clearly torn after finding out himari was dating yori this whole time once she confided in her so i can only imagine what her reaction would be once she finds out momoka and haji are close with kyou.

i wish the storytelling of this manga was paced better and it was less throwing things in randomly, maybe then it would be more appealing to others

i also wish that they would allow more chances for shiho to show Some redeeming qualities because at this rate they’re throwing her into situations where Anyone would react badly but it just seems worse coming from her because she was already an ass to people in the past, which leads to people disliking her even more.

I can’t find any sympathy for Shiho because I’m pretty much every scene she appears in, she is incredibly antagonist, conflictive and unlikeable. She is rude to everyone except her new band mates and Hima. Her backstory did nothing for me at all, she realized she wasn’t the best at violin and grew to hate her best friend because she was better than her. She clearly has low self esteem, but the way she acted to her friend just made me feel nothing towards her. I think what makes people dislike her so much is her narcissism and refusal to compromise. The author is going to have to make some serious changes if they want the majority of the audience to see Shiho in a positive light by the end of the story.

i’m not sure where this manga is even going anymore but all i’m hoping for is that it won’t be resolved with some “shiho was doing all of this because she loved aki” thing because that would be incredibly disappointing. i’d like to see a situation where shiho is forced to come to terms with her actions and not just brush it off with some cheesy tsundere rivals to lovers plot

I think this is one thing that almost EVERYONE can agree on. It would be the most predictable and boring way to take things. Your suggestion would be a much better, more refreshing, and more satisfying way to take things. But the way the story feels like it’s going, it seems like the author is taking the easy way out. And that is just so disappointing:(

I’m not happy with how the story is taking things. Hima just sitting there and accepting all of this is ridiculous, and Shiho is still a terribly unlikeable character. Hima doesn’t even consider what her girlfriend thinks. I get she’s trying to resolve the conflicts, but at this point it just makes me angry with every new chapter. I get Hima is a good person trying to help her friends, but it just is not going to work, and it makes Hima’s airheadedness come off like she is actually an idiot. And why does Hima agree to be the manager for the team that goes against her girlfriend!? Does she not see that Shiho is using her as a bargaining chip!? The last four chapters have completely taken me out of the story, Hima trying to make Shiho and Aki get along, Shiho’s unsympathetic backstory, and Shiho taking advantage of Hima’s idiocy are all terrible developments to the story. I pray the author can bring it back, because in just four chapters, this story has gone off the rails and I even removed it from my favourites list.

And if it actually turns out that Shiho left the band because she was in love with Aki, but was unrequited because Aki was in love with Yori, I will be INCREDIBLY PISSED. That is such a predictable and boring scenario that it completely brings down the story for me. In that scenario, the biggest conflict could literally be resolved if Shiho says “I like you.” That’s just bad storytelling. And if Shiho and Aki somehow get together in the end, then that would just be a slap in the face.

Wait is she heartbroken because she can’t have Kurumi or because she can have Yoroizuka? The way it’s presented seems a little unclear

Huh… that was a lot to take in lol. I think I like it? Not a fan of the cross dressing dude, and after reading one chapter I think part of my brain has definitely melted… but it’s certainly got potential

Wait what? Is it really over? That kinda came out of nowhere, especially considering the original series had 18 chapters. I mean I loved every page and this I’m glad we got a sequel series at all, but what? I can’t believe this is the end. It just feels like there was a lot more story that was supposed to be told here. Like there was more planned but the series got cut short? Unless Morishima Akiko is a genius and plans to do ANOTHER SEQUEL!? That’d be amazing lol. But I still wish we got more of this

Talk about some bad timing on our part. I'll definitely be reconsidering this tagging in the near future, especially given that the series doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon?

Also this comment didn’t age very well lol, only 4 months later
