And drop ! I have enough with this trope of a cold introvert and a selfish extravert. With one only living for her love of music and the other doing "bad things" to steam off from the pressure she has by being the daughter of two prestigious musicians.
Also, a love triangle with whom ? The faceless boyfriend or the kouhai who is not even in the cover and has 0 change to end with the MC.
But Really ! Beginning your yuri manga a het kiss ! Next step, beginning a yuri manga with the girl getting fuck by a guy ? Oh, sorry we already have that :/ ! That such a great way to turn you off from continuing your reading. At least for me
Eh nothing has shown that extraverted one is selfish. She also is shown to love music (coming even earlier in the morning). She is extroverted, but nothing has shown she is a bad person.
About het kiss in yuri sure, but the boyfriend I feel like specifically was made faceless. He is not the point and it is not the first or tenth story about MC falling in love with allegedly "straight" girl. Like just based on first chapter there is so many possibilites where this could go story wise.
I’ve been seeing this here and there and I’m wondering if I should pick it up, but I’m worried this manga isn’t more than [Protag wants her male crush’s attention and tries something] -> [Rival saying something threatening and demeaning] -> [Punchline where rival is actually super into the Protag]. Is there real development?
It starts with that premise but there is development
Weird. I remember I watched the anime long time ago and it defitinely was way less tame in the anime. Maybe I remember it incorrectly but in anime I felt like it was specifically pointed at them being a couple, when here it was "they are an idiot couple without realizing it for the most of the story"
Read this after a long break and definitely prefer Miss Sunflower over original name. I do understand that all Japanese names have meanings behind them, but to non japanese speakers most of them do not (with exceptions like Sakura etc which most people know meaning of). So when that is used as a nickname for several different people owners of bookstore it feels more fitting than japanese version, which seems like a casual name. Really glad current translators went to the same version as in first 30 chapters.
Sometimes I wonder what these age gap relationships would feel like irl.
I'm in my mid-20s and I would probably become celibate rather than date an 18 year old. I don't really understand them and to them I'm practically a geriatric boomer.
Some of my relatives have 20+ year age gap so I don't think it is that uncommon.
I think it also depends on what people are in your circle of friends etc. Obviously it is way different from dating, but I am 24 and I have friends ranging from 17-18 to 32-33. And we kinda don't have any barriers or anything, we can still all have fun together etc. Then again as I said it prob is different with dating but still.
Honestly this type of ending is coming expected ,at least for me. There could've been more drama on the way but instead it focused on Matoi maturing as a person instead of showing struggle between two different people. Now the ending could've been changed to "ROOMMATES" but I don't think it is a big deal.
The evolution of characters was the best part of this manga.
Considering that the color page before the beginning of the chapter already tells us that they became a couple I imagine that it will be done rather quickly and that we will have an adorable development between the two. I love the author so here you go.
Ye but the name of the manga tho.. I could totally see this keeping the "Idiot couple" vibe.
The mom and auntie Ren definitely come across as exes, it seems like they on relatively good terms though which is nice.
I think that should be the case, yeah. Taking the elements we have and filling in the gaps with the simplest possible explanations in a Ockham's razor-y kind of way, I end up with something like this:
1) Mom and auntie Ren were lovers in college.
2) Mom dumped auntie Ren because, y'know, the usual reasons: "Gotta stop playing around, gotta grow up, gotta do my filial duty, gotta marry and have children!"
3) Mom married some guy and had Youzi. Then she divorced him because she's a lesbian and having to put out for him sucked big time and she couldn't take it anymore.
4) Mom became a famous actress, Ren became a famous singer.
5) They meet again (partly thanks to Youzi) and Ren finds out that mom is living alone and raising her kid by herself... and that she often sings to Youzi the secret love song she and Ren wrote together while in college.
Present time, Youzi suspects that mom and auntie Ren still love each other but are silly & useless about it. Maybe mom also feels guilty for hurting Ren before and feels she doesn't deserve to get her back.
This are my best guesses given the evidence we have.
Agree with everything except for 2/3 as we have no evidence for that. Could be right, but from what we know in manga it says Ren went abroad for many years (in the flashback when Youzi is 6 years old, Ren says she came back a month ago). So whatever happened between them to break up could be either before Ren left(causing her to leave), because she left, or after she left. And for now I didn't see anything to suggest either of those is the way it was.
