I saw "kinuta" and had an inkling that she would turn out to be a tanuki. The story showed us where it was going and I delightfully went along for the ride. Looking forward to seeing more of the two too!

a middle schooler with shaggy legs...is that even possible?

Speaking from experience, yes.

I didn't want to go anywhere with a swimsuit sometime after gradeschool. At one point my friend commented on my legs when we were at the pool, I don't remember the exact thing she said any more but it had the word "forest" in it. The few times I've gone swimming in adulthood I've worn shorts. Shaving isn't worth it, and I'm more comfortable not exposing my legs as if I were only wearing underwear anyway.

Glad to see this here. From what I understand, there's three more doujins/chapters to this extra series, so we have those to look forward to as well.

You got me to look for them and there are 4! https://twitter.com/8848426/status/1069963978179272705?s=20
Now I'm kinda excited. I've now started the process of attempting to acquire all 4 doujins from melonbooks
link to the circle page where you can see all the doujins for anyone interested: https://www.melonbooks.co.jp/circle/index.php?circle_id=51806

Speaking of relationship development, chapter 25 is about Kiwi and Utena! I'm excited for the translation and everyone's analysis of their dynamics with the new information. Will some of your theories be supported? Will they need to be revaluated? We'll find out soon*!

*When the translation happens

Completely unrelated to plot, I've once again failed to realize that a character actually has really long hair because her regular hairstyle has it gathered up. I saw the thumbnail for the chapter and was like "who's that??" lol

What the name of comic

You can check the tags to see what things are from. The Doujin: Touhou Project tag indicates that this is a doujin (aka unofficial fanwork) of characters from Touhou Project. The pairing tag tells you what their names are.
You can also use the Author tag to see more images by the same person on this site, or the Source link/button to go to the original post where this image came from if you're interested in finding more of their art that may not be copied here.

The page order was off when I started reading this, but I didn't notice until I got through the double digit pages and wound up on page 2 so I was really confused but just rolled with it in the beginning.

edit: it was fixed before I finished typing.

why would she wonder what a wedding is but know what a wedding dress is? are they using some obscure word or alternative spelling in the original language?

The chapter is still free on comic walker right now so I checked out the raws (I don't know if they'll do the thing where after a certain amount of time or chapters older ones will become locked, although it does seem to be normal for the first three or so to stay free): https://comic-walker.com/contents/detail/KDCW_KS12202158010000_68
And no, they just use the regular word for marriage unobscured in any way so it's just a bit of a plot hole unless this:

I’m waiting for the plot twist in which Tanya is actually an experienced witch unlike the naive and weak witch Melissa thinks she is lol

actually turns out to be true lol

I definitely want this on my shelves, is the license going to have a physical release? I've never heard of coolmic before.
edit: looks like they're a digital platform on a phone app. sad shelves.

Does anyone know if there is actual yuri later on? Do Rei and Claire end up together ? Just asking because chapter 7 left a bad taste and I don't want to waste my time with garbage

I've been trying to keep as spoiler free as possible, but all the reviews I've read point to yes. Erica Friedman (a yuri expert and blogger) has given it high ratings. Here's the link for the volume 2 review (spoiler free) where she gives the yuri ranking a 10/10: https://okazu.yuricon.com/2021/01/08/im-in-love-with-the-villainess-volume-2/

Also, the cover of novel volume 3 has their adopted children on it.

Teacher is just reminding me of that morosexual meme, I think the original was on tumblr:

I'm proud to identify as morosexual. I'm attracted to dumbasses and dumbasses exclusively. A guy asked me what the Spanish word for tortilla was once and now I dream of kissing him under the moonlight.

this same idiot: what kind of animal is the pink panther

me, already taking off my clothes: benjamin you're so fucking stupid

One of my favorite incarnations of it is a diakko post: https://ryuucaro.tumblr.com/post/176725888771

I really enjoy viewing pages 12-13 of chapter 8.1 side by side

(like it's displayed in the comic walker reader. here's the general page for the series and this should link directly to 8.1, but I don't know how long it will be freely available)

since the page structure is so similar but the panel with Mei's reaction face gets zoomed in on the second page. It's a very well done layout.
It's not something I usually notice, but the art for this series is just that well done. The little details for this whole series like the arrows occasionally pointing across panels like in ch 7.2 pg 4 and of course the fact that the arrows are the only things with color are just so cool.

It's cute, but man, some of that speech bubble placement is cursed.

At least the translation included numbers for some of the really bad ones. Looking at some of the artist's pixiv stuff I think text placement/planning is just a bit of a weak point for them.

Just to throw a little more chaos into the mix, the pages they decided to use to use for the preview in this year's Yuriten includes specifically the Nadeshiko x Miho scene from chapter 45 (the headband thing mentioned above):

On page 009 of 7.2 where Miu says

Since it's you, Mei-chan, I can tell you. My friend is her ex-lover.

I feel like the translation is a little off.
The original says

鳴さんだから教えるんですよ?私の友達で 元恋人さん ですからね

And it looks to me more like she's teasing Mei by calling her her ex-lover (because of the pretend lover request thing of chapter 6) so something more like

"Since it's you, Mei-chan, I can tell you. Because you're my friend and ex-lover."

I would try participating in /u/ translation qc a bit before hand if I had any idea how to navigate that forum (and the time to figure it out I guess)... but alas I only really know how to see the results after they're released like this.

I hope this is still a thing sigh maybe this year there'll be some more chapters

I just popped over here because I noticed cheapmanga.com selling a three volume bundle marked as complete: https://www.cheapmanga.com/product/mononoke-sharing-complete/246
(the site is legit, just looks a little old)
Anyway, it seems there are 3 volumes available for purchase in English somewhere, which may or may not be why there haven't been new translations here.

Twin Yuri discussion 12 Feb 17:33

Cute, but twin yuri always makes me think it's kinda (narcissistic)²

That line of thought always reminds me of questions like "would you fuck a clone of yourself" (or other variations specifying just how identical the clone/doppleganger whatever is to yourself)
My personal answer tends to be "probably" depending on the finer details, but that's more because consent is sexy and I'd give it a try rather than actually being attracted to myself. ‾\_(ツ)_/‾

The end credits note to support via buying the volumes reminded me that this series will soon be available in English published by Seven Seas: https://sevenseasentertainment.com/books/doughnuts-under-a-crescent-moon-vol-1/ so if you can't/don't want to buy the japanese version there are going to be other options!

While the 404: Men Not Found tag isn't incorrect, I feel like it's not really used when the only characters at all are the main couple and/or the only setting is inside a single room or house without background people. Otherwise the tag would be on a lot more things. Also the main series that this is is from as pointed out by Calm canonically has men as background characters so it doesn't even apply to the universe. Sorry about being picky about a tag like that, it's not really important to me but I felt compelled to point it out for some reason.

I would like to own a physical copy of this Manga. It's beautifully written and drawn.

You might be able to! I checked amazon.jp and it looks like the first volume was recently printed (as far as I can tell): https://www.amazon.co.jp/-/en/%E5%AE%AE%E5%8E%9F-%E9%83%BD/dp/4049129744

Also if you have any idea how Bookwalker works (I unfortunately have no clue and my japanese skills are way too low to read the site) here is the page for the series: https://bookwalker.jp/series/234326/

how much you wanna bet this one turns out to be trans yuri?

I was thinking something like that too, especially because the japanese title is "kawaii hito" which is a bit more literally "a cute person" without the gender connotations of "guy". The most recent chapter (8) has an author note saying "百合・・・ではない" meaning "this is... not yuri" but I'll still be optimistic and choose to add my own "but it could be" to the end of that lol

There's gotta be a galge out there where you just ship the heroines. Anyone?

Technically Kindred Spirits on the Roof is about pairing up other girls, albeit it's a linear story and the pairings are fixed. Not quite the crackship simulator you're looking for, but still essential playing.

Can confirm, it's pretty good

profile pic checks out lol
I will also say I enjoyed Kindred Spirits.

I feel so out of the loop about Squiggles??? The only thing I remember about them is seeing that their translations were... subpar... at some point so I just stopped reading anything I noticed had Squiggles on it.

Is there anywhere I can get a quick rundown on the drama just so I can be informed? Unless it's so bad that we don't want to spill the tea or open that can of worms here (or whatever other idiom is applicable) which I would totally understand.

You identified one of the primary issues (translation quality) off the bat. I don't think it's my place to say the rest, but to my knowledge there is no will ill from either our side or theirs, sometimes the scanlation scene gets complicated and that's just how it goes.

Thanks for the reply. I somehow got the impression that there was something really dramatic that happened and bringing it up would cause someone to get angry, so it took me a bit of courage to just ask.
