Without directly mentioning the Bandai statement, the recent event tried to fix some of it. They had Mio call Suletta her partner in a romantic context and drew attention to the girls' rings both in pictures and words. The elegant phrase "Suletta and Miorine were wearing rings on their ring fingers" made an appearance. Apparently Bandai isn't trying to deny their relationship or their marriage, but is unwilling to use the M word, probably because it's a hot topic in Japanese politics right now.
This isn't to defend Bandai or soften the laudable sentiment presented in the above image, but you don't have to fear any retcons or future works going full galpal.
The best part is Miorine did it for nothing. Prospera does care about Suletta and never intended to involve her in her revenge plan beyond this point. Truly amazing levels of hard woman making hard decisions.
Wait what’s the story between the two exes again? I kinda forgot/maybe never really understodd to begin with?
Kaoru (Honoka's vamp sister) and Shizuka (Mio's girlfriend) used to date back in middle school but broke up because Kaoru kept fooling around with other girls. Shizuka initially wanted to cut all ties with her, but relented and agreed to stay friends after Kaoru stopped eating and going to school. They then entered the same high school and were officially just friends, but clearly remained romantically and possibly sexually involved.
When Kaoru discovered that Shizuka was growing closer to her lit club kouhai Mio, she initially sought to sabotage their relationship. However, she soon became infatuated with Mask and decided to drop Shizuka, which she, it turns out, did not want at all. Her attempt to get Kaoru back was a disaster that almost cost her Mio as well. They luckily got over it and cutting class to get Mio'd all day seems to have cured her of lingering feelings for Kaoru, who's still chasing Mask.
Are we being punished now we finally got a sex scene out of this?
The minis are just fun little things that alternate weekly with the more substantial chapters. We're getting lots of them because the translators are catching up on their backlog. As the text implies, this one originally appeared months ago. You don't have to read them if you don't like them.
Tiran taran torin I'm lost.
Whatever this is referencing, I don't get it. I don't even get the credits page's joke. :/
It's the sound of rain. Their shoulders got wet because the umbrella they were sharing wasn't big enough, but they didn't mind because it was such a romantic moment.
Kaoru she was kinda anorexic
Kaoru may or may not have an eating disorder, but the thing Shizuka is referring to is their first breakup back in middle school, when Kaoru stopped eating until Shizuka promised to stay friends. Basically, she's asking Kaoru if she's going to start shit now that they're through. See here: https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/virgins_empire_ch61#6
I don't think they're pivoting to romantic YuriMoko at least. There have been lots of recent chapters of them in traditionally romantic settings (sleepover, late night call, alone in the nurse's office) with absolutely nothing romantic happening. There might be more focus on their friendship, though.
Wait, so this serie is more than a decade, is it worth getting invested in this? How's the yuri? I need to know, man what a undertaking, I'm scared. Anyone read it all? What's like your recommendation?
It's definitely worth reading if you like comedic slice-of-life manga about gay high school girls. Some of them are dating, others are in a pre-relationship stage with their girl. It's a light, breezy read, aside from one couple, whose story deals with heavier themes.
Also, it takes the manga a few volumes to find its style. The early chapters have worse art, lewder content and meaner characters than its current form. Chie in particular ends up with a completely different personality from her original appearance in the first chapter.
