She almost let it slip. She said "ri..." and immediately stop. chapter 33, page 6. Eiter motokura say it and then stop, or somehow it is Maron who said it and stop. Someone says "Ri..." Remember Rina always address herself as a third person. People say "I go to ... but for her it is Rinarina go to..."

naw she was just gonna say "ah right"

It is possible.
What is the reason why the mangaka creates the character Motokura? She serves no purpose.

The Art Book is awesome. It basically enlarges certain important scenes, and because of that, things that are sub tle or seemed like not important, now shows up the details.
Yuzu would buy a manga and then sneak it all the way back home and put it in what she thinks is a secure place which Mei cannot find, Mei? Simply read it in the library back and forth and never takes it home.

Example 1. Yuzu has a meltdown due to Kana and Manami's homophobia. She decided to hide in the library. Walking past Mei, Mei told her to stop. What Mei pulls out from the shelf was the book, "The introduction to the psychology of Love"
Example 2. Then about one year has past and it is Citrus Plus. Mei is in the book shelves area and caught Harumin. Mei already pulled out and holding a science book. But she was also in the process of pulling out....yup, "The introduction to the psychology of Love".
Those are small incidents and most of us would not care. BUT the two incidents are almost the same, hence I think that Mei read that book bit by bit. So in a way, Mei is actually very serious about being with Yuzu. If Yuzu lives by that dating book she made, then Mei must be secretly reading the psychology book.
All of these would be unable for us to notice, until, in this case, a blow up panel so you can read everything no matter how minute it is.

The Smiths, Nobody can described Teenager and young adults's angst. Of course consider who the lead singer is...this also reminds me the Housemartins The era of synth and samplers, especially if you can get a studio time using the Fairlight, then it was a big deal. Plenty of Beggars Banquet and 4AD bands then. When grudge arrives, we tend to forget there was an era of alternative and independent band.
I was a radio DJ for 5 years. I used to record John Peel shows....
Oh mitzuki finally can say things cheecky. That is a positive improvement for someone who has limited social skills. The confessions will happen sooner instead of later, we shall see. We don't even know if Mitzuki LGBT.....(I mean of course...the question is when will her figure it out and then out herself.

I almost dropped reading this one. The twins and Uda are super annoying to the point that I cannot deal with the plot, Sure those three do serve the purpose of moving the plot, like a little push. But I am sure they do not need to act so annoying. I think as the readers are more likely to be 10 years old than 21, it has this shoujo manga vibe, it would not matter much if the MCs are a hetero couple. I'll give it a go again, after reading the matching ring chapter. If there is one thing that I hate in many Yuri plot, then it will be Cultural Festival. 3 chapters are too much for me.

What ever happened to Mai? I don't know whether it was me missing something, or the mangaka actually forgot her.

Yuzu crush on Amamiya did not even last a day. Meanwhile she is lusting after Mei, and even Mei knew it too and did a counter move.

I wonder when Aria talking with the king, while Al was lying on Aria asleep.....actually I think she is paying attention to what the conversation, while pretends to sleep. That dialogue makes her feel that the sooner she get turned the sooner the less chance the King will stop. Remember she is very impatient.
As far as one concern, she could be traumatized sucking milk from her dead mother who is starting to decompose. We do not know how many violence and cruelty that she has experience while she was a baby. Those experience can show up later in life.

Motokura = Rina right? But if that is the case, how can Rina and Makinon NOT recognized each other?

No, they're different people, even if they look somewhat similar. Rina has a mole under her lip, while Motokura doesn't.

She almost let it slip. She said "ri..." and immediately stop. chapter 33, page 6. Eiter motokura say it and then stop, or somehow it is Maron who said it and stop. Someone says "Ri..." Remember Rina always address herself as a third person. People say "I go to ... but for her it is Rinarina go to..."

Let see how it goes.

It would be a shame that Rina is no longer in the manga, she is basically a rich version of Makinon

How hard for Makino to go visit Maron-tan. She knows where she lives. Also, she can simply tell Maron that the teacher told her she is in bad shape, so she just want to check on her.

Maron had lots of things going for her. I think Makino deserves to be in Maron's life. Teacher=student, Prostitute=client. Only Makino and Rina knows her secret. So Makino should go even just for the sake to be there before Rina gets the news and head over.

Finally! I have been waiting for this for a long time!!! They have conversation at the store as they now know each other. Mitzuki no longer completely covers herself anymore! Maybe she does not need to take off her piercing while at school.

Is this in reference to the chapter that has not yet been posted here?

Crap, Mea Culpa. I keep thinking chaosteam and dynasty-scans are the same. And since chaosteam has already finished this chapter and posted, i thought it was ok because usually they automatically upload.
Mine is just a commentary, I am not going to write in such a way that I will be kicked out again, for good. The post can be referred to the new chapter, but honestly it can also be just the past two chapters about Kana and Manami. If you can read my comment and figure out the new chapter..you must have ESP.

I find it odd that Al has an accident. I would say she has done a calculated risk analysis.
I wonder who the murderer is, Read those panels again and you should be able to figure it out.
Shades of Interview with a Vampire: Turning a kid is a no no.
Blood-letting was still there all the way to the 18th century.

Georgia, oh Georgia...Georgia on my mind.
The chapter hurts so much. Aria really loves Al.
Just by reading up to here in chapter 42, I begin to understand why Aria wants to die. How does it feel to adopt a child, raises her up, loves her unconditionally, and then she becomes a mass murderer. The guilt will be overwhelming.
The only person who can understand that is Khara. She saved Shadi because she felt Shadi is just like her, around the same age, and Khara has been lonely ever since being turned.
Even though it is a different kind of love, Ichika is Aria's second chance and second love.
Aria did nothing wrong, whatever Al did, it was her own idea.
I bet Aria is a war orphan too.

Aria's King is correct. Al-kamil is too young to handle and control herself. Just like Aria, but in her case, she is 9 when turned, Think about it, she is a 2nd grader. When the environment changes by the 11th century, the adults can handle it without breaking any laws. Al cannot. She cannot handle the hunger. she does not understand the rules. Aria thought that Al being smart would be able to handle it. Just like a wild animal, she would do anything, including killing, to get her blood as opposed to wait it out. It is not about being smart. It is about mental strength. It would make no difference whether she is 1000 year old, or 2000, her body and brains are still belonged to a 9 years old. Its like telling a child not to eat all the Pokies at once. Being smart only makes her wanting it more. She will clean out the cabinet, and pretends nothing has happened.

So how old is Aria exactly? I thought at some point she said she was born a few hundred years ago. Maybe I'm misremembering.

This page says 4000
https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/vampeerz_ch38#26

First of all, always remember that the manga time is 2019. So all calculations are based on 2019.
Here are my calculations, birth year, turning year.

Aria 2028-2004 BCE (Middle chronology) or 1964 to1940 BCE*
Maoa 1119**, ?***, met Aria 1890s
Arthur c1450?****, 1471
Khara 1707, 1725
Shadi Kermani 1819?, 1837*****
Jirou 1874, 1895
Sakuya 1902 1923
Al-Kamil Gika 1, 10******

Ichika 2005

  • There is no specific date. This is just calculations by archeologists. ** Refused to give a specific date, thus my approximation *** Refused to talk about it. **** Mercenaries usually were still teenagers in medieval times. ***** Turned twice. First into a Lilu by Khara, then into a crow by Aria. ****** Estimation.

Anyway, one month away is like pouring cold water on my head to clear my mind.

I wonder if Show uses the Wikipedia often. There are places and time in history that unless his entire house is full of world history books, there is no way he can come up with so much information. The information is very obscure, much more than most of the vampire stuff. I do know he has a large library that is quite eccentric, from reading his blog. But that could have been books he bought while he was working on Implicity or some other LoliEro manga. Modern day mangakas must be thankful that they do not need to buy expensive books or constantly borrow books from the library to create the plots. Of course, he DID go overboard by tracing. Prism is always, always, our loss, as in "what might have been".
Oh, after reading this chapter, I cannot keep a Ray Charles song off my mind.
I got my issue on the 15th/16th. I was shocked how early this anthology coming out for this issue. It was out BEFORE Yurihime, that was a first for me. They are always one day behind Yurihime.

First...
Al-kamil is absolutely evil. She kind of has the same ability to Aria, but unlike Aria, she uses her talents for evil purposes.She has absolutely no problem from killing individuals personally as opposed to using her assistants.
Anyway, this is bad, really really bad. Off all the "people" in the group, it looks like Ichika will be "in charge" as Aria looks completely defeated after talking to Al-Kamil. The final dialogue Ichika says to Aria "あなた を 愛してるから 過去も 受け止める" I love you so accept the past. and then the final page is Ichika asking Aria to teach her about everything (教え...), especially the relationship between Aria and Al-Kamil.
There is one extremely important sub plot so go enjoy it when you get your raw, or scanlation.

Well, that's all folks. To be honest I do sigh of relief. I have never read a Yuri that its plot is so slow..and boring. I don't even know what the mangaka is thinking other than the final panel (fin). Where is sora's mom, especially during the Hokkiado trip?

So it takes the second of the last chapters for these two to come out....while Wakana essentially outed herself and her gf.
I have high hopes for this manga, now it seems it is just a time waster with the plot going nowhere...

Second!
One is an air head, one is trash, one is a stalker. Now only Yuki can stop the train wreck, at least try to save her best friend. Although I do prefer to have a train wreck. NTR is so fun as long as you limit your fantasy to 2D.

I like the plot of this manga. But I really dislike the drawing style, it makes everything worse. The characatting in this are not just not cute. I would be puking if they were real persons.

The sister is the stereotypical Takemiya Jin's anti-heroine. You can feel her coldness and ability to manipulate. Also, another Takemiya Jin's trait is a character will have a big grin (not laugh, not cry) or big smile while she is scheming things, especially things that are very nasty.

The fact that the sister was not given a name said a lot.

I love Takemiya Jin, her shorter work (such as doujin) are masterpieces. No need to write a 14 volumes manga because in 14 pages she usually already set up plot lines and characters. Having her (wife, spouse, partner.. fill in whatever word is there) who also draws the small and boring stuff means she can crank it up her production in high speed.

OK, I am at this point chapter 9.2. I think I have never read a Yuri that is so fuc*ed up as this one. OMG. It even managed to trigger me, which is extremely rare for me. The drawing is good, but the story is absolutely top notch. This is an incredible dark manga. How Mei Fujimatsu came up the three characters like that. I have no clue. In any case, Sena has at the very least *clinical depression", we do not know if she is bipolar or not...
I do love this manga, and I would consider it as my top 5. on-going manga,
