Well, I really love but I'm a bit conflicted with the end. This best situation is that takebe is asexual and it just wasn't addressed in detail. But part of me just cant help feeling like this was written by a straight guy who doesnt understand that there actual sexual attraction between gay people and just wanted to right a yuri story. Takebe didnt have a single feeling of sexual attraction the whole story, and Soramori`s came off as more obsession than anything. That's what happens when 90% of "yuri" in eastern media is just fetishized queer baiting. It breaks my poor queer heart if that's the case. Ace people just aren't represented nearly enough despite being 5% of the population. Either way, it was good and I'm optimistic in my mind!

I know three different ace people who recommended this for being very true to their experience - they're the entire reason I read it. So...I dunno, I think it's better to just take the good and roll with it, rather than go too much into things we really have no idea about.

100% agree! Thats really all we can do. Either way it was well done and I enjoyed it. Just think it should be tagged as ace at least. Just for the people who are sadly a bit more ignorant about these things. It's the only way they can start learning and whatnot.

^ You know, I had been misreading the title as "Accept My First Love" (for months, even after reading it twice), which... didn't really seem odd since Takebe was Soramori's first love, right? So yeah, these comments were how I noticed that it was actually "Accept my Fist of Love", which is, like, a hundred times better and funnier as a title? How did I even not notice? I get the "fist" turned to "first" but I just went and omitted a whole word there?! lol

Anyway, this was a pretty nice manga, even with the wrong title lol. I couldn't get enough of Takebe's scowls.
And yes, I did feel like I understood asexual people a little bit better, so that was neat.
