DAD'S GETTING READY TO ADOPT A NEW DAUGHTER

For real though I hope he doesn't. She needs sanctuary but not from him. Man doesn't even properly take care of his existing daughters, and the older 2 need jobs so they can get by. The means just aren't there to take care of her. (I also don't know how to feel about him projecting his ex onto her.)

Weirdly im currently expecting Yonago will be the one to step up and pull Himawari put of this mess, though it'd require some development on her part.
Edit: I don't know why Yonago came to my mind first when the teacher has been the one trying to look out for Himawari, and its clearly meant something to her. Maybe Yonago will play a role but Ayame should be end-goal guardian imo.

Gaaaah
First, a cliffhanger with a month of nothing after a slap, and now a cancellation + move to fanbox. I hope that at least the continuation will be from this more detailed version rather than the twitter one...

There was a chapter this month, I'm just slow at translating it because I'm feeling devastated.
The fanbox continuation will follow where the serialized version leaves off. The announcement confirmed the twitter version is discontinued.

That's good to hear at least. I've really enjoyed the pacing if the serialized version. I don't mind subscribing to their fanbox to support it. I really appreciate all the translation work puy into this

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

Some conversations aren't simple to have. What is the one woman supposed to say? "I know I'm married but I like you too?" It'd just come across as stringing her along. The wife needs to decide what to do about her relationship with her husband before realistically starting another.

"He's got plenty of money so stick your butthole out for him and live a happy life!"

I'm dead. She's so entertainingly scummy XD

This build up with "I just want to go back to THAT summer", almost feels like Koto is going to go back in time

Awww not another "dropped" manga

There are updates on manhuascan.com

Looks like the (official) version is the censored play/apple store ap friendly version. So I would recommend the non-"official" version. (Kinda sucks that Pocket Comics picked it up, since they don't offer non-censored versions on their official site like INKR.)

And unless i missed something, Tianli doesn't know the severity of what she did because Xingyuan didn't mention anything about her father. Which is understandable, but Tianli might realize how trivial her hangups are in the face of that info and understand the Xingyuan's response better. When that flashbacks were happening, the interactions with her father seemed to be the bigger deal, so I was pretty surprised he didn't come up at all in panels dealing with Tianli and that (even just like, a note about Xingyuan intentionally not mentioning him)

Yea, Xingyuan's family has been the main source of her trauma so far. Also even if Tianli found out there isn't much she could've done as a middle school kid once the rumor reached her parents. She made a mistake in the heat of the moment, but the sins of everyone who followed aren't all hers. She sought Xingyuan looking to apologize and offered to do anything, and I think she meant it. To be honest had Tianli found Xingyuan at a time she was still alone and not surrounded by a support network she may have been able to do something for her. As an adult I actually think Tianli took all the right courses of action she reasonably could.

I was so worried Miyako would break up with Ayako to "protect" her. I'm so glad they didn't go down that route.

Also what stage is their relationship right now. They've dated for months now, are sharing a bed, and taking baths together. But I don't think I've seen them kiss once yet. Is it implied to have happened off screen?

I do feel for Tianli. She's genuinely remorseful and I'd like to see her character grow more. The promise was to "stop talking about her" and she kept that by leaving the chat. So I wonder if she'll show up again next year.

(Not forgiving something doesn't have to mean cutting someone out of your life forever. It'd be interesting to see the nuance of moving forward under a different kind of relationship explored after they've had more time to grow apart.)

Like i saw in one of the comments in mangadex and i have to agree the lack of dialog and onomatopoeia in chapter 29 realy creates both a sad and peacefull vibe. But i realy am not ready for this to end like this...

Yeah, this ended up being way more powerful than any dialouge I can think of

I am a bit confused, is Yoshi Non-chan's old owner or not? In chapter 24 after Non-chan realizes the dark-haired girl is Yoshi, she becomes embarrassed that she confused Yoshi with her old owner. But I think in an earlier chapter, it is explained that Yoshi played with Non-chan for one summer in her childhood? And then "abandoned" her, leading to Non-chan being untrusting of people?

Yoshi just happens to look like Non-chan's old ownwer. Non-chan is already alive and trying to scare her when they first met in the ch 10 flashback of Yoshi and her dad touring the mansion when Yoshi was a kid

Aww, Yoshi looked good with her bangs cut. Too bad she didn't get a chance to make Ueno's heart flutter

Really cute series. The last few chapters were interesting to me because they confirmed something I'd been thinking about for a while.

When talking about discrimination against cat people, it's tempting to parallel it to real world racism. But unlike race Catulus syndrome isn't something inherited, it's a trait that shows up (almost) always during puberty and a catulus can even be born to non-catulus parents and vice-versa. Kinda like homosexuality. The bit about "catuluses being more likely to love the same sex" just makes it more obvious.

This also makes it fitting that the most discrimination we saw towards catulus came from the twins religious parents. This reading can also apply to Maron and Kurumizawa's complicated relationship. They definitely seemed to have a childhood crush on one another, but then became "incompatible" after reaching puberty. If you read this as Kurumizawa turning out to be straight, but not wanting to let go of her childhood wish to be with Maron, then her actions of pretending to be a catulus make more understandable sense.

Of course, just as nobody is simply "straight or gay" there are in-betweens in this world as well. Which we see with Riko, and why she and Yuki can end up together.

After tearing into Reika it's going to sounds really hypocritical if the story tries to give the dad a complete pass on dating a high schooler, who sounds like she was in an extra vulnerable position. Tbh I wasn't a big fan of Hime complaining about Yayoi, saying she didn't know how good she had it with the dad and doesnt deserve him, a few chapters back.

What a beautiful afterword. I hope this series gets licensed so I can buy a copy.

It's funny, it didn't really strike me until this chapter, but Koto...

Now don't take this the wrong way. I don't wanna make anyone angry. But...

I think the character of Koto is kinda creepy. :/

Koto is fine imo, she's just put into a literally unprecedented situation. The closest real world equivalent would be someone waking up from a 7 year coma, and even that isn't one-to-one.

She also has to be aware of Aya's feelings. With no family, Aya has nobody but her girlfriend and Erika to lean on right now. Suddenly distancing herself from, or even dumping, Aya right now isn't great for Aya either.

Not far enough along, so I probably won't be on the lookout for replies yet, but as a quick aside I like the spirit intermediary magic system. Reminds me of MagiRevo. In general spirits add some flavor to typical fantasy magic, and avoids the currently overdone video game stat system.

I love this sort of adult drama

After reading the TN I'm more interested. I like genuinely flawed and complex characters.

Also lmao at "Let's get life insurance"

This sadly feels like it got canceled early. Luke there was room for a whole arc where Kazuha grew up after studying abroad. She was probably still too young to steer this into full romance, but the subtext is strong. I'm glad the issue with her dad was satisfyingly resolved at least.

I agree prostate stimulation is the natural assumption to the fingering line. But it is interesting she got the idea from yuri porn. Curious if seeing more of it will give her more hints towards the Emperor' identity.

I wonder if fingering techniques for vaginal stimulation also work on a man's prostate? They should have some overlap right? (As a bisexual I feel like I should know by now, but I can't bring myself to put my fingers through the backdoor. Respect to Dingdang for her commitment.)

The start of ch6 hut so hard. Then the ending hit hard for another reason.

I'm glad the drama didn't get dragged out. This was super cute. And hopefully there's more to this story. I wonder how the mom's gonna react. Theres a lot of starting-a-romance potential
