Still reeling over that subtext tag

I just noticed that. Does their relationship gs nowhere romance-wise in the light novels? If that's the case I may just drop this manga, I'm already reading too much stuff.

Rereading, that’s probably her dad right? They did say he worked on that kinda stuff don’t remember too well though, but hey it’s possible.

That's what I am thinking too. That's 99.9% her dad.

Isn't she estranged from her dad—who works in anime—or something, and the reason why she became a seiyuu was so she could get closer to him? Or am I thinking of a different work…? Sorry, it's been so long since I read this series, that I've maybe forgotten about some crucial points.

edit: Also, did the series's tag get changed from "yuri" to "subtext"? That would be very disappointing.

I just binged the whole thing today and god this is a rollercoaster. I love the character interactions between the two MCs. The way their personalities play off each other is great and I sure am hoping that this will be a yuri story.

On the events of the most recent chapters, I do think that the situation is salvagable if the anime guy is her dad. That way they could just go public, reveal that she was visiting her estranged dad and that would also help her personally as then she can be most honest about hereslf as well. Plus this whole thing could help the radio station as well as it could get some good publicity for it IF everything can be smoothed over.

Though I do believe that it is most likely her dad, it will still be hard to make the situation any better. Sure, in that case she wouldn't have slept her way up , but they could just as well claim that she only got the role because the director was her father... which wouldn't be all that positive for her reputation now, would it? It would save her from these disgusting accusations that she "betrayed" her fans by dating a man, but it wouldn't save her from the accusations that she cheated to get the role.

These aren’t stans. Just overly obsessive people who don’t know the boundaries of parasocial relationships. In other words, they’re fucking psychos.

This hits really hard what with Suzuhara Lulu and Kiryu Coco's Graduation and the harassment they faced. Granted one of them had foreign harassers but it still hits the same.

Lulu actually had her real address uncovered and was sent death threats I believe. The idol industry is fucked up no matter how secretive you think you are. There will always be the resources to find you and absolute fucking freaks who will stop at nothing to get to it. I’m so sick of seeing all these innocent people actually fearing for their life, all because this tiny internet minority thinks they’re entitled to a stranger’s safety/feelings. These days all it takes is a few clicks or a simple google search to find out everything you don’t need to know. It’s just so shitty when it happens.

These chapters hit really hard, the idol business is so goddamned idiotic sometimes. I hope we at least get a deus ex machina here or something reasonable that will save everything.

Stans are psychos tho. Similar to those K-pop stans that obsessively stalk their idols then act batshit crazy when they find out their idols are in a relationship or something.

GOD PLEASE NO

It was all so good 2 chapters ago, and now everything goes to waste. I can't believe how everything messed up, I seriously didn't expect it. I don't think it will be bad if Watanabe and Yasumi (was that her real name or is that her idol name? It always confuses me) quit being idol voice actresses, like in spokons if the MC says "I'm quiting". Here it would actually make sense, they're always so stressed and overworked and so many other horrible things.

Ah man, I really hope Watanabe situation would get a solution.

Also, in another note, a color note even, this is so good! Like, the writing is good, the emotions feel real, nothing overdramatic, the plot is very original, the characters feel real and are really likeable. And this last two chapters (10 & 11) were OOF, SO GOOD. If we get some more material (I hope this doesn't get axed for whatever reason seems to affect every y-manga) I actually think an anime adaption would be possible and really good tbh.

So the story isnt Worth your time if it doesnt end with a "I love you"?

Some people missed the news so let me repeat. The manga is ending next issue at chapter 16 (translation is 4 chapters behind). So 3 volumes in total.

It was bound to happen. Very few of these LN adaptations go all the way.
That said, the source material is still going on, so you better pray for it to get an English translation, or better yet, an anime.

I read gay romance manga for the gay romance, yes.

or better yet, an anime.

This wouldn't help, really, since anime adaptations of LNs also virtually never cover the full source material.

It seems pretty Angsty to me. I forget how many "As" you put in the Aaangst tag. It's excellent, I hope I find a couple chapters of the LN translated, or it gets licensed.
When I started reading yuri (and this was one of the first places after the Marimite books), I don't think the drama would have been nearly so blunt. Compare Torii Eriko's situation in Itoshiki Saigestu (Maria-sama ga Miteru).

Holy fucking drama, it's like the characters are there just to act as catalysts for drama. It's like it would die if a chapter doesn't have drama. Gets pretty boring.

the power of yuri will solve everything watanabe and yasumi will just kiss in their twitter account to solve everything.

Just noticed the Chinese translation of the LN is currently up-to-date(1st volume licensed in Taiwan + 4 more fan translated volumes). So if anyone can read Chinese but not Japanese(Pretty sure there are like only 2 of them here), and is interested in this series, go check it out!

the thing is, "stans" comes from the eminem track "stan" about an obsessive fan. im sure it has a broader meaning now that includes much more positive things, but yeah i feel like the word is appropriate for the crueler & more entitled sides of fandom tbh. i suppose you could say the same about "fan" itself coz it comes from "fanatic"
