Starting to read this in 2024, and man, this really is a manga of its times in many ways. Probably won't finish it because it's long as heck, but I just wanted to say that "I hate guys so much that I can't stand myself unless I crossdress" is such an egg_irl way to be...

Love the sports(?) commentary at the end there

Excuse me but I would like to have some plum kelp popcorn. I can take or leave the dramatic youngsters tragically kissing in the back of the theater; plum kelp popcorn sounds amazing. My mouth is literally watering right now.

Should work better now, after complaining on Discord.

Thank you!!

This chapter was cute too. I like to see the emperor smiling.

Aww... I'm kind of demiromantic myself, so these scenes of characters trying to figure out whether what they feel is love or close friendship I find very relatable

Yup yup yup... I definitely zoomed in on that definition of romantic love to compare it to my own experiences. Everyone has a slightly different definition though, and a lot of them are based on sex (which is unfortunate if one is ace).

Natsuki's fine if you're into possessive manipulative jealousy. Some people are, I guess.

I feel like the luxury brand was supposed to be Miu Miu actually. Maybe...

This was cute :)

Is it just my phone, or have the long strips become nearly impossible to read on mobile? I have to perform obscure and intricate thumb tapping rituals in order to turn to the next page.

Sigh... misunderstandings because people refuse to be open and vulnerable. Lack of communication, sigh.

I'm sure Maria knows what she is doing. After all, she sets this up. Don't underestimate the psychology professor.

Using the power of psychology for evil (or seduction) ftw!

Boys? Gay boys? In a yuri manga? How rare.

It's refreshing! Not only one flavor, but two flavors of gay in the same classroom!

Also, did they just have sex in front of those thugs?

Being arrested and tied up may have its perks in certain special circumstances

Oh no, she's discovered the power of cat(girls) and being easily forgiven. There's no stopping her now.

Honestly if she wanted to really collect a lot of souls or whatever, she could just transform into a loli catgirl and head over to Akihabara.

Tears represent emotion and sensitivity, and are associated with weakness and femininity. Katsumata-san exists as a woman in a patriarchal workforce, and adapts by showing anger, an emotion commonly associated with men rather than women.

However, the tears and sensitivity that the main character cannot fully hold back are also her power; when a person feels their vulnerable emotions and moreover shares those emotions productively with others, they create a community founded on authenticity. When we embrace authentic vulnerability, we access the power and strength of humans who are in alignment with themselves and their values.

I think it makes sense when you read the whole thing as a metaphor.

why mung bean soup?

Mung beans have relatively high nutritional value. And are apparently relatively cheap as well (though a cursory search tells me they actually suffer a high crop yield loss, mostly due to pests and disease).

So she's being frugal while still providing for the servants. (Instead of, as I expect the kitten killer would opt for, starving the help. Because she's blatantly evil.)

I like that we get to see how she interacts with others too, and how she's kind towards everyone. It makes her a really fun character that I can root for.

Okay, all I'm saying is that the beginnings of this manga gave me some intense aromantic vibes, but now that Asako started flirting back and having "mysterious feelings", I'm really not sure what to make of it. I feel like it would be kind of boring if she "overcame" her aromantic leanings in only a chapter or two.

(Yes, I am totally projecting onto this character; so sue me!)

Nice that she's addressing her self esteem problems.
