All this debate going on about "will they or won't they?" and here's me sitting alone in my corner thinking "why do people keep forgetting that the author has flat out said it's gonna happen?" and "did everyone forget that Ayako agreed to buy a larger bed so they could sleep together? Cuz no way that that's not gonna end up being a huge plot device to turn that corner".

I do apologize, cause I have not seen the twit. So if I do offend others, then I’m sorry for my lack of knowledge of what’s going on. I also forgot that part where ayako said that ‘we’ll buy a bigger bed’ part. So my viewed has changed now since you mentioned that. I was just pointing things that was going on in my mind for the last few chapters. But it doesn’t change my mind that ayako has became a bit annoying, just waiting for more to come for this character.

Ps. I do really wanna know what’s her Twitter. If anyone know hit me up, please.

I wasn't singling you out, it was generalization.

Her Twitter: https://mobile.twitter.com/tiyk66

The Tweet about how the deed is gonna be done: https://mobile.twitter.com/tiyk66/status/1135754820638236673

I had to back and search through 40+ pages to find those again lol

Edit: Argh someone posted the link right before me, that'll teach me to watch Netflix at the same time

I see all these people still wondering about how this would end and I just need to quote myself from more than half the thread ago...

It's titled 1 x ½. I think it's fairly clear how it'll end.

This is becoming so dumb and insufferable that I reflexively rolled my eyes

That's a first, I'll forever remember this series for inducing such a response in me

I don't know if someone else commented about this (not gonna check 2000 comments), but Taiyaki did an small interview last year with a Latin American girl about her manga and her life. (it's in Spanish).
https://www.facebook.com/cynthiarth/posts/entrevista-a-taiyaki-sensei-mangaka-yurihace-unas-semanas-tuve-la-oportunidad-de/905889882869456/

Some important points:
Basically, she's a lesbian mangaka who started with Touhou and Saki fanarts. The first yuri she read was Marimite.
Her thoughts at first about writing an incest mother-daughter manga were similar to others: "it's strange/repugnant" but she also said that it's funny to make/read. She also loves age-gap stories.
What inspired her to write this manga was the novel "My man" (Watashi no Otoko) from Kazuki Sakuraba.
Her relationship with her mother is normal.
She doesn't care "that much" about piracy in other languages besides Japanese because she wants others to read her works, but it's a legal problem that must be resolved between the fans and the mangaka and that's the reason she's publishing the manga in other languages. She wants to publish it in Spanish too in a future.
She also talked about Citrus, Latin America and a what was her favorite work.

That they will eventually do the deed doesn't mean it will end with them living happily ever after.

I suspect it'll happen, then they'll be shocked that they did it, try to figure out how they feel about it; and it'll probably take a while before happening again.

And once they get bored with that they'll have a threesome with Akira.

One thing the Dynasty forums have done is to open my mind to a wide array of previously unknown and unexpected human behavior.

The reader response, "OMFG! After 2 full years and 32 releases/chapter fragments, I now realize that this is mother-daughter incest! I'm outta here!" is certainly one such example.

Ofcourse- but I hope it does- they both seem pretty fragile in some ways, I dont want this to be a really dark and depressing ending with them both being messed up - or some convenient time skip to 'and now she is happily married to some random person and over her mom' 'realistic' ending.

I think it would be a refreshing change to make it end well- because basically there are none that have- that i remember. (not with motherxdaughter) and even the few sister/sister happy end mangas are all one shots I think

Well one thing I know for sure is that discussions shouldn't be based on stuff the author said on twitter, not here and not with Nettaigyo wa Yuki for example... It just leads to confusion and is like trying to piece together harry potter based on the idiotic things the author has said on twitter.

Not to mention, I would've loved to keep it spoiled for those who prefer (like me) to follow the story until THAT point... But is too late, I'm not mad, just disappointed... People are so desperate, like they can't read sport manga if the author doesn't confirm if they'll win the world cup.

Most of the suspension is now gone and a lot of the upcoming arcs or drama will feel like a drag "What the fuck are they doing this now we know they're gonna fuck so just get over with it!" or something like that

Has suspense about "will they or won't they?" ever been a major selling point for this one?

I thought it was pretty obvious from the beginning that eventually the story was going to go that way. The whole thing would seem pretty pointless otherwise, and for all the structural quirks of the presentation so far, I've always had the impression that ultimately the author knew where they wanted to go with the story.

Of course it is, considering is not just a yuri story with age gap, is incest! even if all signs point to that direction, to have official confirmation before it happens is still a major spoiler... And besides, most authors know how they will finish their stories (assuming it ends when they do it) but not all of them make a public announcement about it, specially not with romance. Maybe the author doesn't think is a big deal but I just wanted to have the choice to know for sure about the things the story itself doesn't say yet.

All I meant was “To me it never looked like it was going anywhere else.”

And there are lots of stories that feature “Will they or won’t they?” as a major point of interest to lure in readers and keep them hooked, or where the authors are obviously keeping their options open, depending on reader response or their own inclinations.

I never had the slightest impression this was one of those.

...if only she better knew how to get there.
Unless, this is REALLY planned out well and all the detours eventually accumulate into the most awesomest of storybeats. (But I don't quite see that coming as of yet. Color me pleasantly surprised if that happens, tho.)

For now, I'm just glad the story is moving forward (in the linear sense). I was really close to dropping it...
...but, whee~! My head's still spinning from all the hand-holding :O

There will be hugging I hope

At the very least, making out. As much as I'm rooting for the going all the way, I imagine the hot and heavy make out session will devolve into one or both chickening out at the last second, then awkward next day conversations.

You guys are so hilarious to think they would do the deed any time soon. They barely held hands (no finger locking) and sweating balls already.
I believe Taiyaki could never jump into a sex scene, the build up is real. Maybe another two years with more pi sigma chapters then we might get hickeys.

Oh I didn’t say this in a negative tone. I absolutely adore this manga’s slow pace and agonizing wait that destroys me everyday. Taiyaki is God
