Consider world A the one affected by disease, and world B the one not affected.

Our protagonist is Marika-A, born in world A. At a very young age, she was subject to an experiment and changed places with Marika-B from the unaffected world. Marika-A grows up thinking she actually belongs to world B.

Then Marika-B finds out about this experiment, and somehow reverts it, bringing herself back to her homeworld and switching places with protagonist Marika-A, who, in turn, believes she'd been transported to a strange world of only women, when that was actually the world she was born in all among.

tl;dr:: Marika is currently at the world she was born in, and from which she was taken long ago as part of an experiment.

Couldn’t she just settle with the world she’s in now?

The story seems to be heading in that direction, yes.

Well, her sister is certainly going to be upset by this.

Also Marika-A now has to process that her father isn't her father, and her brother isn't her brother, and seeing them ever again would mean stealing them away from their actual kin.

So I kinda feel like there's no happy ending here? No matter what, everybody involved has to mourn the permanent separation of some loved ones.

Oof, basically like a switched at birth story. World/family you were born in versus world/family you grew up in.
If both Marikas desire to live in the unaffected world, it'll be quite awkward an dilemma indeed
Seems like other-Marika was okay leaving the family she grew up with though? Assuming it was a conscious choice, when she went back 'home'

Held off reading for while.... Waaaay better to read from start to current chapter without a break inbetween due to short chapters. Dat plot become thicc... Will wait for a few more chapters for another stab but I like where it's going, feels like where getting somewhere with Marika's past and whatnot

Except normally in a switched at birth story, it's still conceivably possible for the switched babies to get to know their real families without also saying goodbye forever to the people that raised them. In this case, they -can't- go back without giving up the family they grew up with. It's pretty sad. And yeah, Marika-B seems to have resolved herself to detatching from the family that raised her, but she's also had to live in Yuriworld as the only straight person, which must have been rough. She also may not have realized her little sister wouldn't exist in the other world, or realized that her sister would recognize Mari-A as an imposter, so she may have been comforting herself with the knowledge that things would be pretty much the same.

I remain confused by the plot's progress, but happily, no narrative machinations could ever be as confusing as this manga's chapter numbering scheme. (If "complete chaos" could even be called a scheme.)

Thanks /u/.

Just a reminder that we don't know her sexual orientation. And she's probably not the only straight person anyway. As far as we know, the virus simply killed men, it didn't change people's sexuality.

I invite you to go back and read the whole story again. The revelations in this chapter have been hinted at a few times before.

To be fair, that mostly comes the Mangadex ordering system, in which decimals have to be applied to keep things in order. Otherwise it's simply a case of main chapters being split into multiple parts for upload and Intermission chapters going inbetween certain chapters. Since Dynasty can program the order at will, they don't even have to add numbers to the intermission chapters. (At the very least, it's nowhere near as bad as when it comes to number ordering 1x1/2 chapters).

XD I was also about to say "You obviously haven't seen chapter numbering chaos yet" (eh, now I said it .-. )

Wait, all the 13.x chapters aren't even in the same volume but actually in three of them...? Yeah, can't top that...

I have a feeling that the ending will be a disappointment at best. But I will be glad if I mistaken.

Just a reminder that we don't know her sexual orientation. And she's probably not the only straight person anyway. As far as we know, the virus simply killed men, it didn't change people's sexuality.

If she didn't feel fundamentally different from everyone around her, I doubt she'd have gone through so much trouble to return to her native dimension. If she's not straight, wouldn't she obviously be happier staying in the world she knows than leaping across to another where any number of friends or family members might not exist?

There has to be -some- kind of friction between her and the world she exists in, or she wouldn't have moved heaven and earth to go back.

As for the rest of the population, The -title of the series- is "All of Humanity is Yuri Except for Me". And literally everything we've seen about that world suggests that homosexual relationships have been entirely normalized. Whether that's situational homosexuality, a side effect of the virus, or whether some sort of genetic engineering has taken place (in the process of making humanity a species that can reproduce with one sex), or even if it's just learned behavior, the fact of the matter is that the title of the work and the motives of Marika-B both strongly imply that most, if not all people in that world are perfectly happy being teh gay, and that Marika was the standout.

It's also been suggested that Marika-A has had trouble fitting in in our world. I'd be surprised if the author shied away from the obvious parallels there.

I think we're all forgetting that "Azami" (probably an alias) still has a gun to Marika's head, and is very likely to (try to) shoot her once she finds what she's looking for. If anything, I suspect she's part of a faction who wants to:

a) keep the entire Suzuran project under wraps, which means tying off ALL loose ends, or
b) wants to exploit Marika as she may suspect that this Marika might have the ability to "dimension hop" just like her parallel version

A doesn't make much sense in the context of chapter 10.1 though; why even talk about it at all if you're just here to finish the cover-up? So I'm leaning toward B.

I suspect she's affiliated with Yanagi, honestly. She's probably Yanagi Ayame's daughter, and is trying to protect her family's secret. That's why she knows Marika and why she's taking her back to the Yanagi mansion: It's her home base.

Edit: Well, I was close. ;p

If there was a manga about us, Dynasty Readers, then in today's chapter you'd probably be seeing a panel with me just laying in confusion with a spirallic background and question marks going as far as the spiral goes.

As she's previously established, she wants to go back to the other world so she can settle things with the one she was dating there, but will try her darnest to come back to give Lily an answer.
