I have to admit I find it strange to find people in a yuri focused site be against more official gay girls in a manga.

I know everyone has their own tastes for the yuri genre, but I agree. I've read similar criticisms of some of Ratana Satis' works - I personally like escaping to a lovely world stuffed with official gay girls.

Did the translator in mangadex change?

yes we had another translator this time due to our main translator being busy
we upload the same chapter in both sites,what do you mean mangadex?

Er... I read this in Mangadex before reading it here.

I mean, are her parents in good terms or what?

Yes, this felt like “high-context” culture with a vengeance.

It’s clearly the standard “missing overworked parents” trope with I guess a side helping of “estranged but working on it.” (And Matsuri as Substitute Mom for little bro, of course).

Does anyone in this series actually have a live-at-home Mom and Dad that we know of? (Not counting Shirapon’s yakuza clan, I mean.)

(I personally don’t find much to care about Harumin one way or the other, and Matsuri was more interesting to me when she was a straight-up sociopath.)

They ain't officially gay yet that's to be seen, more on Harumin's side than Matsuri's. I hope we'll get more of them together cuz as of rn to me it doesn't feel like much of anything seeing them kiss since it kinda feels like the author was like "damn y'all been wantin this for years, here just fuckin take it". But I did like how they made eachother blush with the words they said to eachother, that was nice. Also does it really matter if they're all gay or whatever? Don't they go to an all girls school where most be doin gay shit be it for real or not?

No. That's why I asked If they changed the translator there. I thought you took this chapter from there

Am I the only one finding the dialogue in this chapter rather odd?

Which part?

If you mean the scene on the bridge I can say that yes, it’s translated a bit oddly. But even in Japanese, the phrasing was a bit weird cuz of the way Harumin usually speaks.

So here’s my take:

“You might be someone who must never screw up”
“But if you’re going to hide that”
“Then no one is going to notice when you’re fed up with it all”
“So learn to love “that part of yourself” as well”

This is the closest I could get without breaking the momentum of that scene...

Well some long time ago some people thought that Harumin was "too good" for Matsuri so maybe they're salty, but that's just my wild guess...
I'm hoping they develop this relationship carefully because that, to me it would be like Citrus 2 hehehe, a complete new dynamic.

@Erogequeen thanks for your take on that scene, it helps, I don't think the original translation was wrong, it was just a hard subject and I'm not a native English speaker so some stuff can be taken too literally or vice versa.

Are you ready for 10 chapters of kiss angst?

Damn, I was so impatient I preordered and downloaded the kindle magazine exactly at 12midnight 18th Nov. When the room scene happened I was like.... oh well that’s probably the closest we’ll get to MatsuHaru this time I guess. Bridge scene at the “Senpai!” Right before I flipped the page I was thinking “nah Matsuri’s prolly only called her to stop her to tell her something no way—flips page— HOLY SHIIIIIIIIT” And now I’m back to fight me irl with anyone who’s willing argue against this ship.

It’s been a LONG TIME COMING. The stage for HaruMatsu has been set since Vol 3 special in the original story. They were always eventually gonna get together it’s just how fast or slow... and I am REALLY GLAD that Saburouta took her time with this.

And yes that special in Vol3 with Matsuri meeting Harumin is 100% cannon. Not just a random omake added. At the end of Chapter 13 when Harumin has flashbacks before she grabs her phone and calls Yuzu, the square bubbles have been SEVERELY MISTRANSLATED and it's actually word for word from what Matsuri says to Harumin in Vol 3 special.

Rather than chapter 13, you mean here?

Eroge went into detail about that a few pages ago, showing that the text is the same in the Japanese versions of the two chapters.

In 30th June the last few panels where Harumin remembers Matsuri saying "all prez does is magically solve things from afar..." is actually a mistranslation. This scene is Harumin remembering Matsuri's words in that scene from June 21st "People who've only used magic to heal from a distance..." and is actually a jab at Harumin, and while it's not the whole reason, it ends up being one of the reasons it propelled her to be the one to visit Matsuri instead of leaving it to Yuzu and sitting on the sidelines as usual.

In other words, the first time Harumin has decided of her own will to get involved in something
'troublesome and Matsuri related'.

I'm still think that's one of the many flow of Lily Love 2 tho

Like i said, Saburouta throwing HaruMatsu so those who demand it are happy and stop bothering with it. I don't really know how i feel about his kind of comment.

I agree, all extras included in main and spinoff are canon.
I've been waiting for so long to see Harumatsu on action and I'm so glad it's slowly sailing. I know some fans don't like Matsuri and that Harumin deserves better but Harumin is still the most mature character and knows Matsuri the most. So Harumatsu banzai!

You would think so right? But more fans like Matsuri more than Harumin. Lol
(At least the fans I know and the Japanese fandom)

To me I think Matsuri is the most mature character in the series, she portrays herself as the immature imouto character, but Matsuri is also the most jaded character, unlike the others she’s seen the darkest and most depraved of human desires from her ‘part-time job’. Not to forget she has been taking care of Inori practically since he was born, a responsible older sister.

On the other hand, Harumin just doesn’t want to get involved in anything troublesome that will disrupt her peaceful life. But recently she can’t help but be concerned about Matsuri*
