I'm absolutely losing my mind over the composition of page 14, the mirroring of the movements is SO beautiful and SO heartrending I'm AAAAAAA That page is one of the most wonderful visualizations of yearning I've seen on here. Loved this

All of the club scenes make me so happy in the same ways that going to a real queer club does, I love seeing everyone unabashedly dancing as themselves for the night. The panel I keep coming back to is the establishing shot of the club and seeing the two with pup hoods- it gives me a giddy feeling, seeing something I am familiar with from my own queer experience in a work from another part of the world . It's those little moments of connection, y'know?

On the actual chapter, Bunny is great lol, hope to see him more

Funny enough, a fan who is an animation student made this cute animation short this week and it has me really wanting an anime some day even more than before. I love it when a series I like attracts talented fans for fanart.

TIL via the tags on this that some people shorthand this as "green manga" and man, I love that. Ive never figured out a good abridged version of this monster of a title; it's green manga now (wonderful lil animation too lol~).

Is the Blue Monday song choice part of the meme she's using, or is that an original twist

It's part of the meme, the trend is this song + the fighting game style moves in time + dialogue. Idk lots of couples have done it that I've seen

No new chapter this week, but we're blessed with this hilarious "introduction" instead:

I wouldn't usually think of Mitsuki having dog energy, but an Akita doesmake sense for her given how stubborn they both are LMAO
and welcome back Narita my boi; I love that panel gag. I really hope with all this talk about "Onii-san and Mitsuki being the same, and more people start putting that two and two together, that anyone brings up that Aya had a legit crush on Onii-san, snd if she thinks of Mitsuki as the same person... Like c'mon, someone, someone put this into words!! Mao and Chizuru better not join Narita's cheer squad in the background and not say anything. Those two are never gonna do anything about it alone!!

Recently I just keep thinking about, no matter how popular this manga gets, a faithful anime adaption is basically impossible due to song licensing issues. Maybe I'm just nihilistic but there's basically no way a yuri manga adaptation could ever afford a Nirvana song. Let alone multiple western rock classics. Just. :'c

I really hope Aizawa-san is at least considered for an anime at some point. It's got all the horror elements I was really interested in from Mieruko-chan without the obsessive groping I couldn't sit through, plus a mystery I'm actually invested in. Also, canon lesbians everywhere.

This chapter oh my god oh my goooooood. Childhood friend amnesia(?) is an odd twist that I'm willing to ride along with. And whatever is going on with young Michi and the previously sealed idol. But my big deal is when she finally looks at Aizawa I'm ;0; I wish they lingered just a little longer on Michi's reaction, it's so heartbreaking. She's just so scared- she finally acknowledged a ghost out of concern for Aizawa and it seemed to prove all her fears right I'm dying here I'm deeeeead OTL

Awww I liked this one; and honestly, for all the density jokes, I was surprised Hinazumi even considered herself so early- usually it goes that the idea it could be herself wouldn't even be an option until the confession. Instead she has to actively talk herself down from the most obvious solution lmao. Makes Seira's gay suffering at the end 10/10 like, girl, of course she doesn't get it, you made her doubt herself!!

glad she hurt her leg and not her arm or we'd be in for even more artist angst -v-;;

What's the likelihood of Sumiko Sensei doing the English translation herself? I feel like it's probably impossible, both the workload of it and behind the scenes stuff working with English publishers that I don't know how it works. But English is a second language to her it seems; it would be so cool to have her translating her own words.

Not something I even expected to find on Dynasty, but I'm already looking forward to updates. What a subdued depiction of married life. I wonder how much is going to stray into conflict, if it will ever be a linear story or more of a series of vignettes. We'll see as it goes.

Also, kotatsus seem like the perfect recipe for accidentally falling asleep lol. So waaarm~

A new adult life series, sign me up >:O I'm here for Kon already, and Ai's setup is already interesting, carrying around her life in a bag. Thank you for starting this!

I found a physical Japanese copy on display and I've been giggling and kicking my legs ever since I'm so glad I have it!! And it's so cool that it was a featured book , on display next to other manga with running anime and other really popular ones (was at a Japanese book store in the states). My girls ;v;

So if these two are actually endgame for a "regular" kind of romantic relationship, then there's a lot that still needs to happen, with Junko's mindset more so than with Kayo's, i'd wager xD

Honestly if the series ends in any sort of "regular" relationship I'd be shocked lmao. esp because, like you said, Junko really hasn't seen people other than as pawns. The only way I personally see Kayo and Junko being endgame at this point is in a crueler way. I feel like Junko is on the path to destroy any relationships the two of them are beginning to build with others, but in the end the two mains would stay together because no one else knows their "real" selves. Who else could possibly want them when they are capable of so much brutality?
loving this so far but i'd be amazed to see this partnership go anywhere but mutually abusive

this is already looking like a favorite of mine; I haven't enjoyed a manga fight scene in so long, and it's so cute and inspired! all of the cupids are adorable
One part that keeps slipping my mind, but I'm sure will be touched on more in the future, is that the cupids all used to be, like, alive. I'm used to supernatural forces naively trying to guess about human romance/emotions based on what they've studied and... I mean, it still kind of counts for these girls because all of their knowledge of romance comes from media and others' experiences! So they've got the vibe of what I expect a cupid to be like, but I'm rlly looking forward to seeing who they were before, and if anything will change ^^

[...] Makes me wonder if there will be anti-cupids or fallen ones consumed by their jealousy later on.

yeah I wonder about fallen cupids too! esp since it's already implied that cupids do fight each other and what we saw was a low stakes scrimmage. but like are the future opponents doing something evil or are they just other cupids trying to finish the job first? excited to see :D

it's silly, but I kinda have the same goal as Kirika. I am cute and the kind of person that people want to defend usually, but I really want to be the cool knight who does the protecting >~< I'm glad she had her moment!
This was a lovely little one-shot! I love how supportive her whole friend group is about her crush. Mitsuru really cool herself too ^^ I don't know if I'd read a whole series, but I'd love a continuation of these two!

I saw that there wasn't an update today and immediately got worried something happened to Sumiko sensei or the translators OTL spoiled by these weekly uploads for real.
Hope y'all are having a good one, can't wait to be back!

oooo glad i saw this after apparently missing the page order error. Read it in order and ahhhh its so adorable ;-; It's kind of cute that Fuyu never actually called Ririka "cute" after all; hoping for in the future where she does :D And the ending omg, of course she's here. i genuinely don't know how that's going to turn out; almost hoping for a falling out, though I should be hoping for a kind separation lol. So excited for the next part whenever it comes!

Oh my goooood this is ;-; I love the ending; she's right on the money, how we get to see both sides of Yoshioka's confession but she can't because it's not fiction to her~~ ahhh so good (also, how the beginning of the chapter mirrors the first chap of the manga, but now the faceless Yuri girls are her beloved friends? Perfect)

...and is it just me, or is this the most that Ririka and Fuyu have talked directly to each other 'on screen'? Most of the manga is Fuyu's inner monologue and assumptions, so it's sweet they are really, truly interacting now that Fuyu is distancing her reality and her fiction
