Personally I agree that in this particular case, the whole gender hiding situation is not meant to be malicious and it's just comedy.

Comedy can be bad you know

Yeah, but comedy is also one of the most subjective form of entertainment.

YES FINALLY!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS DAMN MANGA OH MY GOD. I forgive the girl for being a complete idiot with the whole "I goTtA gEt A cLoseR LoOk I'vE neVeR seEn A GuY'S parTs EitHeR" because this was great lmfao. I legitimately laughed so hard when Kanda said she wasn't gonna be able to restrain herself and the other girl saying "ok, i want you to, be gentle" LMAO God this manga is so fluffy but refreshing, and hilarious too! I wonder where this is gonna go from now on though.

Well if you and others didn't find it funny, that's fine and dandy, but just don't try to put others who enjoyed the humor of this manga down and stuff. Comedy is highly subjective and people are allowed to have opinions lol

For me personally this comedy premise stopped working in second chapter and then there was only flat comedy and joke-characters. This premise can be pulled off and author tried to do so by introducing context of sheltered girl with overbearing parents, but it fell flat rather quick because they wanted only do a surface level jokes about it. So, again, for me, with kind of thinking from the author, this story needed to be rather short for not to be repetitive and annoying. Ha-ha, couple of dumb jokes about misunderstanding and the end. But no. Maybe I just disappointed that this very nice art spent on this kind of writing.

This is so awkward. I'm cringing from second hand embarrassment. Dammit. I both like it and hate it.

Every single comment thread on this site is a race to see who will be the first person to take a fictional story -- no matter how absurd, silly, or farcical -- 100% seriously.

All art should be taken seriously.

Now let's pull up a chair and have a conversation about "rape culture".

There is no point so you can put your chair back where you take it.

The notion that "if you do x I won't be able to control myself and will sexually assault you" is a lie made up by people who either want to excuse rape or put the blame for it on the victim. Empowering rapists is what I would call a problem of rape culture.

"put Kanda in a really difficult position right from the start."

I don't see it. Sure, Ookuma mistook Kanda's gender. Kanda could have said something right then. Or at any time in the past 6 months. Including early on, when she asked Ookuma "what if I were a girl?" and Ookuma basically shrugged. Kanda put herself in this position.

If someone mistakenly thinks you are the opposite sex, That's going to bruise your self esteem. If they're also smitten with you, you have the awkward combination of being both insulted and flattered at the same time.

She got herself into the relationship because of a stupid impulse, but it was Ookuma's...overpowering enthusiasm that made it difficult for her to come forward at the start, and then she caught actual feelings and started to become afraid of losing her. Everything there came from a place that was well-intentioned, if irresponsible. I'm not saying it's all Ookuma's fault, it's definitely mostly on Kanda for not coming forward earlier, but if you don't think any of that would be difficult to deal with, I don't know what to tell you.

And it's real easy to say "Haha if you were a girl? I dunno, I guess I wouldn't care" when you are absolutely convinced that it couldn't be true. It didn't necessarily do much to alleviate Kanda's worries. The fact that she apparently meant it wouldn't help Kanda in that moment, but it -does- make forgiving her much easier for Ookuma. Like I said, it's pretty easy to forgive someone for something you didn't really care about.

You're taking the scene way too literally. First of all, I don't know the exact japanese in the original, but you routinely see "attack" in manga referring to consensual sexual advances. She isn't literally saying she's going to sexually assault her, she's saying she's going to make a sexual advance. I don't know how anybody reading this comic could think Kanda is the type of person that would force herself on Ookuma without consent. You are conflating an absolutely innocent scene with people who make excuses for actual sexual misconduct.

She's saying "If you strip in front of me, I'm going to want to do stuff to you." Ookuma then -literally- says that's the plan, and that she will consent if that happens. Then she does strip, and Kanda literally asks for consent directly despite the fact that she already has it. There's no assault here, nor threat of assault, or anything approaching a threat of assault. Just two absolute dorks nervously approaching the concept of maybe wanting to do stuff to each other if that's okay.

You are jumping at shadows in a well-lit room here.

Through much of this series I found Ookuma to be cute but slightly annoying because she was such an idiot, but at the crucial moment she has shown herself to be an idiot pearl without price.

oh my god, are we really gonna have a discussion about this? it's obvious that kanda wasn't implying that, she would never try and do something without consent. you literally see her ask "can I touch you" in one of the last panels. pls, go back to Twitter and use that energy on real rapists.
