Could there be a holobird tag? Right now it's really hard to find this image if you forget who the artist is (which was my case just now). A lingerie tag would be nice as well (do I have to give examples of that myself?).

As for the cow print/cow lingerie tag

Can pass those along.

Edit: I just noticed the upload request page says "working on uploaded" instead of "working on uploading"
And the "Bibnou" typo was never fixed

The first is correct, but I can see how it's confusing so I'll think of something better. I don't really wanna change the Bibnou typo...

Can I appeal a tag suggestion? Is this the wrong place?

Yes, absolutely. No, this isn't the wrong place. Here or any of the usual places I try to be available are all fine. As just a thought, it's much better to have a discussion when necessary, rather than use the one-way tag suggestion function to repeatedly make the same suggestion(s).

Like, what is the rape tag in a drama when most characters forgive it? Or constantly give justifications? The scene using drugs for revenge was triggering, similar to what I prevented from happening to a date-rape-drugged friend. Maybe my tag suggestion was too technical and looked rambling. Maybe what would be tagged drugs and rape in another story was too subtle an increase in problems for this one to get the tag...

We have had ongoing discussions about adding an extra tag for situations clearly appearing to the audience as rape or at least dubious consent that are not taken seriously by the narrative. There's a particular remark in the chapter that demonstrates how flippantly the characters understand the events - "If you were doing something this funny, you should've at least called me... <3."

(Upon reviewing chapter 8, it is surely Rape, and Blackmail. I'm not sure the Drugs or Drunk tags add much value, as these are discussed and implied, but never depicted. In my mind they do not add any necessary context beyond that already provided by the two now-present tags.)

There is a related conversation to be had with this particular series that you touched on. Throughout, there are suspect individuals engaging in suspect acts. To some extent, the messiness is the point. Certainly some nuance exists in how best to consider - and tag - stories about imperfect characters who are often quite horrible. In this instance, I'm not sure I find the distinction terribly relevant.

I'll review the rest of the series in the coming days and see if there are further adjustments that need to be made. It is possible the now-present tags for chapter 8 will change if the accompanying series tags change as well. No need to respond further, but it's fine if you wish to. Thanks.

Ugh, every new chapter makes me cry. What a perfect mood this series strikes. Really incredible artistry all around.

Nooo, not you too, fellow subtext enjoyer Pekoe :(

Don't misunderstand! I accept that the average yuri fan is moving away from non-explicit works and can see why that might be. Doesn't mean I'll stop enjoying them anytime soon though!

strayalive posted:

I will be charitable and assume that you did not just equate any of the slowburns you or me listed as bait.

Depends on which ones, but generally what happens in volume 7 of an LN doesn't really matter for an anime only watcher. I don't consider them much different especially when the romance isn't in the forefront like in Executioner and Otherside.

Yeah, supposed nefariousness aside (though, this is most of what matters, to some) I can't see much of a difference between them all. I loved Executioner's yuri (the anime), but based on a lot of folks' definitions it wouldn't even count as yuri in the first place. Could never recommend it for that element, and thus it's functionally pretty similar to some of the most prominent "bait" anime out there.

I don't think I agree with that at all; what usually drags things out are harems, love triangles, or in yuri roadblocks like "but we're both girls!"... The more memorable and/or highest rated het romances are usually pretty definitive over 12 or 24 episodes, especially if they're adaptations of shoujo.

And if they do end early, the endgame is usually very noteworthy from earlier on. To pull a yuri example, Sasameki Koto certainly felt like that sort of romance story. At least, that was my experience till I stopped watching het romance anime (~2016). This being the case doesn't undercut all yuri anime of course - Machikado could've ended after one season and it would have still been satisfying romance.

Would be great to have more conversation about the ongoing translation and less about what may or may not happen in future volumes.

Christmas, if you can’t comment without judging others, consider not commenting at all. Removing any further inflammatory posts here. Not super convinced any further posts about pubic hair need to be made on this image.

This means a lot when you take into account that Takamine and Sakura's train schedules align only thanks to the fact that the former quit volleyball, were she still part of the volleyball club she would be leaving school too late to commute together with Sakura

That is such a cute detail.

The characterizations were so stark. I know these types, but they were so deftly executed it felt like I was learning about them for the first time. The confession sequence was really good, too. Saying nothing about anything, while spilling everything. Then, holding her, just staring in silence. No wonder short hair was literally weak-kneed after! I really do like those clever bits of writing the most.

Her own surprised blush really reminded me of another scene like that, even though they're totally different. Thanks so much knight heron!

Edit: Just to say I love Fukaumi Kon's art. And writing too, but the last part was obvious I think.

I don't mind grim and gore too much, but does it lean heavily into the horror...? I could barely even get through Otherside Picnic sometimes...

I'm sorry, this is a known issue with our having been blacklisted by many email services. It will be fixed eventually, but I can't offer more specifics at the moment. There will be an announcement when it is.

Lol. I said it’s necessary, because it is. It’s there to break old things down. It’s a wrecking ball, though, and centre-left is there to pick up the pieces and pass it to the centrists, and the right complains about the new stuff, like it was better before.
It’s like repaving a road. Someone rips up the old stuff, making a mess. People come and put down new stuff that works. All the while some people complain about the traffic and the smell instead of appreciating an improvement.

What I’m talking about:
“Any possibility of a relationship means dishonesty of any kind is the worst thing ever” oy, vey, it’s basic drama.
“What if she was trans” absolute mishegas, and offensive.
“Tropes stereotypes oh no” rachmana litzlon! The horror! /s

There are other pointless arguments happening, but whatever.

I’m not exactly gonna mourn the loss of commenting here if you don’t like how I tell people to chill the f out.

I wonder why just now you decided to show up. It’s almost as if I brought up a certain subject in passing…

Well there was a main problem with that, the series didn't start the translation here right away, it came to dynasty with like 30 chapters already, that's too heavy of a topic to condense in a comment, a lot of people have not give it a chance yet but I'm sure that anyone who does will feel a change in their life.

Yeah, that's a good point. The MangaDex chapter comments were always pretty engaged, though. Given its depth and themes, it seemed to evoke a lot of personal, introspective comments. There was still something lacking though, as I'm not sure how much was said about the manga directly. Really is a hard one to pin down.

I swear that girl is a walking kabedon. The series feels pretty melodramatic, but reframing Mitsuki's anger probably reduces the overall drama potential by a lot.
