Why?

^ That was useful - thanks :) I was wondering why it might be called nutmeg. Does nutmeg only have those properties when raw or in larger amounts? I've had it many times in various cakes etc and never noticed an effect?

I really liked this - and that was before I noticed it was Otsu Hiyori! responsible for some amazing one shots like maple love - So I will certainly be looking forward to more :)

Yuuri actually looks a lot like the blonde in Maple love- though the black haired girl is very different.

P.s

I've seen Yuri as a name before - (seems to be gender neutral?) but never Yuuri? Is it the same name just romanised differently for some reason? If not anyone know the Kanji / meaning?

Cute but not new. School girls fall in love with each other. I think we have to many of it^^'

Wow, I was just re-reading some old works of her and was wondering if she did something new and this popped up a day later.

Maple Love is my absolute favorite one-shot. I'm really glad to see a new work of hers. Is it something new or a few years old?

Far too broad a category.

You might as well say 'one person falling in love with another? how boring, that's been done loads!'.

What makes a story good or not is in the details and implementation, not some overly broad categorization for it's setting.

You could write a 2 school girls school setting romance, that was far more original than a manga with say, a female jockey x woman deep sea diver who are on the run from Belgian secret police for stealing the worlds greatest chocolate recipe.

Would the fact that nothing close to that exists make it good? or the characters interesting with good dialogue? Nope.

"Effects include rapid heart beat, flushed skin... , intense sexual pleasure, vivid (and often controllable) daydreams (known as nutmeg phantasies), finding everything funny, inability to walk (particularly if taken at bed time the night prior),... , general giddiness, empathy and/or shift in perspective."

This relationship seems like a nutmeg waiting to be eaten; their friendship's mellow at the moment, based on the foundation being note-sharing. I think the romantic side will burst intensely in a short time; they don't seem like people who fluff around. If it doesn't I'll retract my statement.

I see. I was confused why it is named nutmeg because it didn't seem to have any connection to plot or characters and I wasn't aware of any meanings of nutmeg that could fit. If that ends up being correct it would be pretty cool. As a bonus thing, title in japanese is "natsumegu" so if Natsume ends up being nutmeg it would mean Otsu named her like that on purpose.

It is 2 different names. In japanese prolonging sounds is very important and can often completely change the meaning of the word, that is why I dislike when a lot of translations simple remove 1 letter assuming reader won't know how to read it or something. Both are inherently female names, but indeed some male characters are named like that as well (and are often mocked because of it or it leads to some misunderstandings). Can't say anything about meaning because it is written with kana so we don't know which kanji are used.

It is her newest serialization in Galette.

There's always moe gap in Otsu Hiyori's manga. Like the nerdy-looking characters are actually the bold one in the relationship.

William S. Burroughs, in Naked Lunch actually explains how to get stoned off nutmeg. But it takes about a tablespoon's worth and is super hard on the liver so not recommended.

^ I wasn't about to lol just curious why its safely used in so many foods.

Also - I noticed the first 3 kana of nutmeg and Natsume are the same so that can't be coincidence.

Another thing - it is set just before the summer holidays - and the first 2 kana of nutmeg 'natsu' also mean summer right? so there might be another meaning in the name? Though I'm not sure what the megu bit would mean unless its an abbreviation for something.

I already asked about it, because I felt like there might be some other meaning to it, but nobody replied and only person that did reply said, she has no idea and said to just tl it as nutmeg. We don't know when exactly it takes place and while "natsu" indeed means summer, I feel it is just coincident, especially since "megu" by itself doesn't really mean anything.
