Yo, at this point, the author seems to just be straight up trolling us. :D "Look, it's just a filler chapter about Baiser and Kiwi messing with Tres Magia again... psych, it's actually the start of the Dark Magenta arc! ...except psych! It's actually about Alice having a robot kid with Utena, and she is now part of Enormeeta! Arc over, see you next time!"

...I am not complaining, just pointing things out. :-)

That is a wonderful explanation of how all our expectations were railroaded, haha.

It was indeed a fun ride.

I have no idea why everyone is getting so angry at the poor girl. She tried to talk about it, it really isn't her fault she was interrupted both times. It is possible that the apology may cause some misunderstanding, but that should be solved the next time as well since obviously she's not going to just run away now.

Um, maybe because you don't have to accept that you've been interrupted? The chapter ends with her just sending Hinoka home like she's disappointed in her. Poor Hinoka, that must be devastating.

Despite me being able to accept that Tsukushi is confused, it doesn't change the fact that she hurt the girl who went out on a limb and kissed her. You don't need to have an interruption-free moment to just say "we'll talk later."

That was a bit unexpected from new girl. I was expecting her to try to move in on the relationship, not straight-up steal some blood, haha. Looking forward to the reveal here.

People have been asking why these girls would like Akane in the first place, but it seems to me to be because she lacks common sense and the ability to say no.

The only thing that Itou was missing was just the asking part.

I love how this whole manga is terrifying and sad. Such an intriguing story, and I just want to know what's going on and I want everyone to have a happy ending.

Well, um, look. I'm conflicted. This is nice and all, but I really do hate being given the run around of coincidentally missing one another all the time.

Classic "I'm so ugly I can't be cute takes of glasses what do you mean I'm gorgeous?!" Trope. Same with freckles.

She didn't think she was ugly though. She knew that she wasn't stylish and purposely wanted to accentuate her cuteness. Which she did. Big success.

Sometimes I wonder what people think "a story" is.
No romantic resolution = "nothing happened"? You'll find that a lot of things happened in this story.

It's like when I was reading Komi-san, and everyone and their dog was like "nothing ever happens in this manga" and I was like ... what the heck are you reading a manga about a girl who wants to make 100 friends for if you think her making friends is "nothing happening".

People don't seem to be able to appreciate a story without romance these days.

Just casually reading chapters 32 and 33, thinking about the person who was really upset when they introduced a new character like ... 6 new characters ago, haha.

To me, a friend is also someone who will be willing to say "I don't think that's right of you", and, in the end, it is an adult women with an unusual relationship with a teenager.

I agree with this, it's not remotely insulting or negging for one adult friend to recommend another adult friend not to get intimate with a child. That's just very normal actually. That character seemed very genuine in her concern for the MC.

I feel like we read completely different things. If you are saying "I don't think it's right for you to have an intimate relationship with a teenager." You don't say, hey, you're childish and I think you hanging out with impressionable people will be a disaster.

With the introduction of Takimiya I'm now suddenly torn because, damn girl you should date your cool coworker who is more than enough the successful career woman to make up for your inability to be that lmao.

Urgh, no. She seems like the kind of person to feed into her friend's inferiority complex to make herself feel superior. Fancy telling a friend "don't hang out with that impressionable teenager you're too immature and it'll rub off on her."
Like you have to be a perfect person to have a good influence on a teenager.

I dunno why anime and manga is always so against using swimsuits as underwear, even going without instead of having to wear it under their clothes.
As long as it's dry, there's no problem. It shouldn't be any less comfortable than normal underwear, it'll just sit differently under your clothes.

It's kind of cute that the mangaka decided they needed to change the title just because they didn't want to keep drawing them cleaning.
Like, the sentiment is cute, but a title can be the inciting incident, it doesn't have to be the core theme of the story, haha.

Also this topic were Lesbians has to pretebd to be straight makes my blood boil,

Bisexual people exist.

Yes, but a woman who deeply loves another woman and is socially pressured into marrying a man instead is a terrible example of it. They might be bi or might not be, we can't just assume that label on anyone simply based on their history

And yet, there you go, assuming their sexuality. i wasn't putting a "label" on them, so much as saying that, since we're not told they were uncomfortable and in a loveless marriage, there's no evidence that they were not also attracted to the men they married, regardless of if they would have preferred to stay with their high school sweetheart (and, to add to that, no evidence that the relationship they had as children would have lasted into adulthood anyway, meeting again as adults and picking up the spark is not the same as a long-term relationship).

Ya'll on these comment sections always have to boil everything down to the simplest answer just so you can take offense to it, say you're being open while being really close-minded, refusing to see that anyone could be happy, or anything good could come out of relationships other than the yuri ones which are the focus of the story. It's quite frankly infuriating.

Edit to say: the more I think about it, the more infuriating it is. We're specifically shown in this chapter that while the teacher was wrong to say what she did to the girls, it was simply the catalyst for them thinking about their future. When asked if she wanted her own children, Rei said she probably did. And the close of the chapter is Rei still not committing to a yuri relationship, she still thought it was the right thing that she have and be invested in her own child. So patronising to dismiss people's feelings on these issues just because you might think differently. There are a lot more perspectives in this world that just your narrow worldview where apparently, anyone who is in a lesbian relationship as a teenager must never ever have her own reasons for eventually marrying a man. Never. The way people freak out about anything that has this perspective, you'd think that these ones are portrayed as an instruction manual, and the majority of yuri on this site where no one even considers a man is somehow lesser for it.

Can't wait till we're a few more chapters into this and lose the "I'm gonna drop this" crowd. Like, heck, OP male protags with harems are dime-a-dozen, but yuri has to be some kind of masterpiece to be allowed to exist?

I'm all for being like "I'm not into this because of this and that reason", but since when has "I'm dropping this if it doesn't improve to match my sensibilities" ever added to a discussion.
I always want to be "this isn't an airport, you don't have to announce your departure." Can't people keep that sentence to themselves, at the very least?

Everyone treats the ogres like evil creatures - even the ogres themselves - but we've been shown nothing but normal humanity from them: some are good, some are bad, some are just following what they've been told, some are rebellious or just confused. It's so sad every time they're treated as sub-human when they're just like humans.

Poor Akane. This is just getting more and more confusing for her. All of this artificial stuff, how's she supposed to know what's really real?
Hope she figures it out soon.

Wow, I'm so impressed she worked herself to exhaustion. I suppose the Maron/Mashiro inspiration is legit.

I wonder if working herself to exhaustion shows her mother that she actually has worth, too, or if she just appeared to be an awful person again.
