Quite a bit of depth from a first chapter. And 'Nutmeg', it's fitting IMO.

And their relationship growth seems quite organic.

Why?

"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.

^ 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^^'

I want to see more, well executed, stories of this kind. With all the entailing ways to get there. Until those get depleted, then we say goodbye. But there are of course creative people who will try to prevent this 'goodbye'.

Am looking forward to the different methods future artists use to trigger emotions. Though, that will be hard for someone such as myself, a stone-shelled heart and all.

Look out for those rare ones, aye?

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.

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.

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