Shinobu do the same thing in Shoujo Sect, but in the end she ended up with Momoko as it was meant to be. Than afterwards both Shinobu & Momoko ended up with a three-way relationship with Maya, so if the story turns out in a similar to that than am good.
Eh, it's only cheating if it's against their rules, and we don't know what their rules are. Their relationship is pretty vague and Tae seems to have hangups about taking it seriously because it's not "normal".
I agree for the most part but, and this could be a translation issue (can't find the raws myself to check), but she did at least point out that she basically considered the two of them dating at one point... Doesn't really seem like a friends with benefits situation if she's connecting the dots like that. It might be that she really isn't serious in any sense of the word about the relationship, and Jimiko doesn't even seem upset about what happened beyond freaking out in a "funny" way that it did so I'm guessing she's not going to be particularly jealous about it, maybe now it's her turn. shrugs Who knows.
Still, it felt pretty vanilla and now they're going a different angle so sadly this one is down a few pegs for me. I really wanted to watch the two of them develop.
Yeah maybe you're right about the cheating or not cheating.
Still, the Random part was, what bothered me most. And I'm not really an Ecchi-person (and this has a lot of Ecchi-feels), so I'm losing interest
But for anyone wondering who will end up with who... either the title is a hint or very badly chosen.
Even as a work of fiction, cheating raises my hackles. They both agreed at the restaurant they were in a relationship, so munching another chick is off-limits. I was otherwise enjoying this story and art.
Random cheating/polyamory out of nowhere is one of the things you just have to accept when reading Kurogane Ken.
Also, what makes you think Tae's trying to get a boyfriend? She's never said anything that would indicate that. The reason she refuses to kiss was made clear in chapter 3, where she got so turned on just from her lips brushing Jimiko's that she couldn't stand up (though that does bring up the question of why she's fine performing cunnilingus if her lips are really that sensitive...).
She said something along the lines of "if we keep on doing this I'll never get married!" in the first chapter, unless it was a joke and I'm over analyzing it because that's a common troupe in angsty yuri manga
Woah, I was really expecting the entire thing to be a fantasy from the new girl somehow.
Yeah, she looks like every elf girl in a fantasy manga ever
