all the laws of conservation of energy/matter were just violated. this building should not be able to support that tree, either the wind would make it tip and fall toward the ground, or roots would destroy the building...

I'm sorry but this just doesn't make any god damn sense. XD

You got through all the parts where her body turns into a tree at will and NOW you're saying it doesn't make sense? lol

It's one middle schooler's lunch, how much could it be, 10,000 yen?

Roughly $100 bucks, so yeah, is way too much money for a middle schooler lunch.

...

I'm pretty sure that's a reference to this:

I'm just imagining the villager bursting into the house, noticing that nobody's working on a recipe, and immediately leaving again without saying a word.

That's hilarious

I'm lost. What was the resolution in the end?

The problem was that they want to be with each other so bad that they can't bear to leave for work and be separated all day. So, if they work at the same place they don't have to separate.

Oh fun! We just started watching the anime and now I learn that there's a related manga too! The anime has been surprisingly cute so far a couple episodes in. It also has some yuri bait stuff in it so that's a thing. (honestly not sure if I like that or not in this age of yuri availability, but if this were like ten years ago I would have watched the show just for those scenes so...)

how could she go directly to cunnilingus? She’s got to get her in the mood first!

Do you not see the marks on her breast and torso? Also, it's not even cunnilingus yet, she's licking her stomach. Definitely getting in the mood.

Rather than "naked parker" that's on pages 13 and 17, the word that's being translated as "parker": パーカー (paakaa) actually means something like "hoodie" or "hooded sweater" (and can include pullover or zippered variations)

Here's the japanese wiki page about the term: https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%91%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AB%E3%83%BC_(%E8%A1%A3%E9%A1%9E)

Incidentally, I came across this list of 30 words in Japanese that seem like they could be directly used as English, but aren't: https://eikaiwa.dmm.com/blog/3892/ (パーカー/hoodie is number 22)
Examples include:
- ソフトクリーム (sofuto kuriimu) => soft serve (ice cream)
- サイダー (saidaa, sounds a lot like "cider") => lemonade, soda pop

is there like any context for this? or is this like a metal gear solid moment where its just dissociative disorder

In this future, there's this valuable mineral called Originium, which infect people with a disease... these girls have it, but thanks to it they can also fight. Lappland apparently has a lot more of it than most though, which makes her ... let's say psychologically unstable... the disease has a 100% mortality rate...

The last two pages probably depict a mercy-killing.

Texas's profile states she's not infected (yet).
Lappland's includes these snippets though:

Lappland's Oripathy symptoms go beyond the physical to cause an abnormal obsession toward a certain target of hers, even spurring her to excessive violence.

Based on scattered reports and eyewitness accounts, Operator Lappland has a close personal connection to Penguin Logistics employee Texas, a liaison from the company to Rhodes Island. Texas, for her part, makes a concerted effort to avoid contact with Lappland. Still, in situations where they were forced to work together, Lappland has not gone out of her way to antagonize Texas. In fact, she seems to be taking some degree of pleasure in Texas playing hard-to-get, as it were.

I think it would be neat if the reason she doesn't see her own arrow is because she never developed one. Then at some point she starts getting feelings for someone and actually starts to see her arrow. I wonder how she would react to that.

This is very interesting but nothing is clear. I recently read several chapters of a new book by Ricky Gardenen about the possibility of entering Harvard. He talked about the style of writing student work (redacted link) and the possibility of citation. I realized that we are moving in the right direction

How do I report a lost bot that thinks this is an academic forum because the title has "school" in it? Lol

1500 hours is 62 days. Homeboy is a tryhard, but not quite on MMO levels of no life

To spread it out a bit more, playing one hour every day on weekdays and two each weekend would be 9 hours a week. At that rate it would take over 3 years and 2 months to reach 1500 hours. Since he's a second year in high school he would have had to start in second year of middle school at the latest.

So not implausible, especially considering he's enjoyed being popular since elementary, but still super dedicated. Plus he also has to make time for hygiene and exercise and whatever else he might want to do in his freetime. Probably going out to be fawned over by girls.

The cover makes me laugh. I scrolled down and saw the face of the girl being ntr'd and just lost it.

Having followed this on pixiv so far I'm glad to see it here so I can finally understand exactly what they're saying. My Japanese is terrible lol.

Also spoilers about her secret:

Also, I think this is the first time Neji's had the human be taller than the monster girl in their relationship.

Don't know how you wanna categorize that when the taller one is a giant instead of a human lol

Tbh, this story was not that well written. The vampire element was just a vague pretense that didn't really serve any purpose in the story. It was a harem manga with a thin plot. That it was yuri just added a bit of flavor, but that was it.

The drawings were neat, I'll give you that.

The vampire element might have been stronger if the series hadn't gotten axed. The author points that out in the 27.5 omake https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/seifuku_no_vampiress_lord_ch27_5#2
Of course the writing is going to be subpar if you're condensing 7 volumes of content into 3 and just focusing on the fun little yuri harem instead of the original vampire issue.

Wow. Didn't realize Dynasty allowed works like these on here. A NSFW tag should definitely be added to warn other pure minded folks like myself.

Well, I think IRL it'd be bizarre for things to progress so quickly - or at least in a long term relationship that lasts, but I don't think entering into a relationship is the main story of the manga, but the whole career conflict feelings of the MC (dating someone succeeding in something you quit for mysterious reasons is probably going to be a source of angst, but hopefully growth too). I'm interested in seeing where this goes.

You really think this is bizarrely fast? I think this pace is fairly normal. They spent several weeks or months getting to know each other before their first kiss, so if anything they're going kinda slowly for college students (from what I remember), but that's probably due to the inexplicable absence of alcohol.

I do agree that this isn't a typical romance manga. There's a point to all this that goes beyond the standard, "when will they get together" drama.

That's about how I feel about it. They did take a reasonable amount of time to fall in love and get together, but that's not the point of this story so some readers might feel like it happened quickly because it wasn't drawn out. This story looks like it's supposed to be about them finding things out about each other now that they're together and the main one's reconciliation with her past now that she has realized she still wants to be involved in theater.

She gave him oral and he returned the favor? So she's a virgin in the traditional sense but she's actually been eaten out and fingered? She doesn't correct Ren and only says that it was different.

I need more from this couple. I want Ren to appreciate emotional intimacy while Hime gets comfortable with sex - if she wants to have sex that is.

I wonder if he ever got to "return the favor" though? I don't remember seeing anywhere where it explicitly said that, only that she gave him oral. Like you said, she might not even want to have sex so she might not have accepted anything from the brother/ex and only given him head in order to placate him when he was being insistent.

Whoah, Nishizumi-mama is STACKED!

lol Megumi being completely pissed is great

... Who?

Apparently she's from der film? https://gup.fandom.com/wiki/Megumi
I'm going to guess "completely pissed" is supposed to mean she's the one passed out drunk in the birthday photo, but I can't really tell.

lesbians aside I've always found something kinda disturbing about the whole "morals committee" thing. recruiting kids to actively hunt down and squash other kids' attempts to express their individuality, for little more than a feeling of superiority over their peers? feels kinda, well, dystopian, yeah?

Personally, I think indoctrinating children by making them recite a pledge of allegiance every single day is way, way more dystopian than enforcing order and discipline in a school, but you do you.

The pledge of allegiance stuff is so incredibly creepy and cultish that, as a kid, I thought it was a parody/not meant literally, because surely, in the country of ~freedom~ the movies always praised, such a thing could never happen.

Ah, childish naivity.

In my case the pledge was just a bunch of words we were told to say to a flag every morning. Sometimes I would even forget the lines. The last time I remember even doing it in school was the 3rd grade and at that time I didn't even know what half the words meant. Like, how many little kids know what "allegiance" or "republic" means?
