Obviously, she confused material comfort with emotional comfort.

Classic marxist mistake, happens to the best of us.

I think the most likely scenario for the ending is that she left. The apartment was a big symbol throughout the story, the home that would be the solution to the girlfriend's problems. The empty apartment shows that it failed. The same reasoning holds up for her going to bed as well. Going to bed would be more realistic, but leaving would be more dramatic

And a friendly PSA, remember not to feed the trolls.

If you read the dialogues carefully, you'll notice she never told her lover that she was working so hard for her.

Her inner monologue was all like "I have to make more money for her, I have to get a promotion to give her a better life!" but, when speaking to her, she was all like "Work is so fun, work is the best, I'm all fired up for work, woo!"

It's no surprise that, in the end, the other girl decided that lesbian love is overrated -- because this relationship they had was just "Her Old Marriage Version 2.0" -- and walked away.

The OL probably didn't want her girlfriend feeling guilty knowing she was the reason the OL was working so hard. Not that it makes it better.

I hope their relationship wasn't the same as the girlfriend's last one. The OL said her girlfriend was being abused not neglected.

That line about a "cold home" makes me think it was both. :/

To me looks just like she left. I can't see why do you think she died '-'

Yeah, your right. The OL told her "I promise to not make you feel lonely again.". It's a shame the OL forgot her promise. The girl sounds like the girl really had no luck in love.
Honestly it seems like the girl should take time and learn how to be her own woman. It's almost like she is a pet. Totally dependant on her lovers to take care of her.

So so far Yuri Drill vol 2 is 2/2 for depressing oneshots. I wonder if I can safely blacklist it and ignore any future stories.

I love how Shuninta's mind works. She takes something that should be fluffy and happy, then shows it for what it really is, all the while making a point. It's kind of glorious considering how short it is.

That was good. Really got to me. Watching someone work so hard and still miss the point. A tiny bit hard to imagine the other lady not being able to notice ( and speak up about it if she couldn't see it) but I guess that's what we got.

If they can't get back together I canyon help but imagine the workaholic getting with someone who really apprrcites her. She seemed like such a catch. Hopefully she learned from this. And the same to the other lady.

Looks like Amano Shuninta has had her share of unlucky relationships... but this is also very realistic, people who can never recover from feeling lonely leave if they get the wrong idea. And the modern workaholic culture causes loved ones to drift apart physically, and one party ends up drowning in work and forgetting personal promises.

Looks like a suitcase on page 109, so she left. One might argue that it's not really adult yuri with basic communication incompetence like this. Was expecting the worst when I saw Shuninta's name, though.

Somebody call Guinness, because i'm pretty sure we've got some world-record contenders on the "long jumping to conclusions" category.

Are you all the kind of people that freak out if someone doesn't text you back within a minute? There is nothing in this manga that suggests that she jumped, or killed herself in any way, or left her girlfriend, and certainly nothing suggesting shew went back to her husband or another guy.

She left the room. That's it. The empty apartment is meant to be lonely, and we're supposed to recognize that there's a disconnect between how the two women are feeling, but that doesn't mean the world has ended or that anybody's gone suicidal.

The shot of the girl with the suitcase is the happy working girl, not the neglected girlfriend. Look at the hair length and the energetic nature of the panel.

Ah, the classic "lack of communication leads to break up" story. Seriously, in 99% yuri dramas most problems would be solved by a simple conversation. Sigh, I guess it's the unspoken (haha, get it?) rule of "no talking, only doing" type of writing style, so prevalent in romance manga overall.

To all the people grieving in here, she just went to sleep because there was no joy in watching the fireworks alone after all that anticipation.

I'll go with this if you don't mind me.

I'm not surprised. This was an Amano Shuninta manga after all.

I always see a comment similar to this, but the fact is their works are full of fluffy happy endings with couple of downers in the mix if you go through them, at least as far as the selection here on Dynasty is concerned. Did everyone just read 'The Feelings We All Must Endure' and decide every Amano Shuninta story is like that or what?

I will admit that I am still pissed about that manga.

Since page 3-4 already expecting that kind of happiness will be crushed, and yeah that empty room implies she left the apartment. She left her because she's too hardworking (typical reason), even though she did it to give her a better life. So I'm not disappointed.
