The last sentence of the first story’s author’s note was really funny - “this was really trashy.” And the second story was cute, too. I’m glad that there’s more stuff from Mimoto.

Pretty cool concept... basing a story off of the classic art pieces. I chalk this up as another writer/artist exercise.

Why not make another story based off of “The Scream”?

I'm sorry to hear about Hector passing. Losing a dog is very hard and I hope you are doing alright.

This... might sound hollow, coming from a stranger on the internet, but... I truly am so very, very sorry for your loss.

It really depresses me to see The Weeping Woman portrayed here...

For context,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Weeping_Woman

TL;DR: This is a quote from Picasso "Dora, for me, was always a weeping woman....And it's important, because women are suffering machines". (He really was in denial about his sadism and outright hatred of women)

Beautifully Possessive, I enjoyed this. No matter how twisted the process, as long as the girls are happy in the end

On her knee? You definitely saw a different Mona Lisa, dude

"Still has no idea what's making her heart race" That last page was adorable.

Mimoto works should be all translated, they're really good

This is now a series, apparently! Previous thread can be found here. Many thanks to marigold1992 for her continued efforts! Mimoto is awesome.

Oh hooo! I liked the first part but I LOVE this pair in the second chapter... But something tells me it's gonna be hard to see them again (even thought wouldn't mind a whole series just for this crazy mangaka senpai).

Thanks! it looks good and nice to know the big leg was a problem with the original itself and not my eyes playing tricks or censorship hahaha

Doing Ophelia next... this could get dark! Or maybe it will just be like Thom Yorke in the No Surprises music video?

They already did that Millais painting in Claymore, but without the yuri. I'm excited for it nonetheless.

Here's a recommendation for an easy one. "Le Lit" and "The Kiss" by Toulouse Lautrec. It's two women in bed and kissing, doesn't get more Yuri than that.

My thoughts exactly, will be interesting to see the context to use that particular painting.

Do I see anatomical problems here? I can't see how the thigh can get that way, unless her leg is broken.

Check out p13 with the painting explanation? Presumably this is intentional to copy the "problems" of the painting this is based on.

That pose on the pic 9 looks like she is spooning with another person whose leg is visible only. And the hair on pic 13 is strange (like a part of a head of other woman).
Maybe it was censored in 1814, what painting was showing, really (two naked women spooning)...That's my shot.

If I'm right, the truth is hidden behind the layers of colors.

Update:
I checked the painter, and he obviously does not have any issues about anatomy in his other work, so I guess there's really something fishy about "Grande Odalisque", and it could have been modified from the original idea.

Oh nice, Mimoto is a great author but no one seems to be interested in her works. Hope the scanlator won't drop this too

Interesting series~ You don't usually get to read strories with this kind of concept.

I thought the pair in the credits page, who were looking at The Weeping Woman were Mei and Yuzu. But then their uniforms' the same as the two girls looking at Mona Lisa (at least, Mei-look-alike and the dark-haired girl are wearing the same blue cardigan) so idk anymore XD

THEEEE MOST HUMMMBLE USE OF THAT NSFW TAAAAG!!!! After many a sweats from said tag, I half expected donut bumping at some point, I think I'm glad it was tame? I don't know anymore...
Really dig the concept of these mangas tho. Classic art meets yuri manga, oh the stories that can be told
