Forum › The Two Sides of Seiyuu Radio discussion

Although it very much doesn't look like yuri so far, it's described as yuri on Japanese websites and even in official promotional material, if I recall correctly. So it won't end in subtext hell, probably.

The last chapter released in japan is interesting.Usually, one character supports still more the other but the last chapter shows both have insecurities. For Yugure, it's her public persona, and Utatane, it is an inferiority complex on her abilities compared to other seiyuus, with Yugure who help this time.

Latest chapter is up on MD. Wonderful developments, great pacing.

I was kinda split on this story's decision to give so much attention to the stalkers, but after my knee-jerk 'Keep them disgusting creepazoids outta mah yuri' reaction, I've realized that it's actually a commendable decision. So many manga about entertainment and the performing arts completely and totally misrepresent the professions they cover, glorifying and fetishizing industries that are extremely exploitative (Love Live, for instance, has caught flack for making the idol industry seem like some grandiose pathway to dreams instead of an oppressive industry that pulls in young girls with talent, restricts their personal freedom, and forces them to act out anime archetypes for swelling crowds of sweaty otaku who'd get an aneurysm if their waifus, who just so happen to be real goddamn people, ever happen to get into a relationship or display any traits that aren't sickeningly moe or endorsed by their agencies). I honestly hate the whole, 'we must devotedly love our fans and appreciate the support they give us' ideology, because so many of these fandoms are filled with toxic people who perv out over underage girls and fantasize about getting into relationships with them, even as the corporations that market the idols rarely ever criticize this, but actively prey on the social isolation and repressed desires of straight male consumers to mold idols into real-world waifus and maximize appeal. Though the idols do make good money and the stalkers are terrible people, there's also a lot to be said about the agencies that form the root of these issues, and the general fandom culture that drives such behavior. And the fact that this series is willing to engage with that by presenting the seiyuus as people often uncomfortable with performativity, whilst also giving the stalkers human traits and exploring their mindsets, psychology and fiction-reality disconnect is pretty neat. I'm not expecting it to be some kind of brilliant symbolic deconstruction of the industry like, say, Revue Starlight, but even if it displays the willingness to explore the seiyuu profession with more depth than just 'cute girls and their loving fans', it'd be a cut above all the shows and series that idealize professions for blatant cash-grabbing.

The latest chapter should prove pretty satisfactory then. The train is leaving the station.

Can't wait to see more development between these two. Also really like how glasses-kun (forgot his name :/) touches on the fact that idols are human beings too. And that part where yugure was talking about the bs she was getting for liking her fav anime felt too real for me XD Glad this manga brings up these types of topics lol

Agreed, I really liked that part too, I know a lot of so called "fans" of lets say, idols, vtubers, that will go off and say "Oh I love _____ so much!" but instead of treating and seeing them as yknow, normal fucking people, they give them these suuuuuuuuuper high expectations, and like someone else mentioned earlier, invade their privacy like they're not human beings too with lives of their own, and once they find out about something that doesn't fit their standards even slightly, freak the fuck out, really makes me appreciate glasses-kun (I also forgot his name lol) a whole lot more.

You ngl I was kind of scared when I saw him appear with that video but he seems cool unlike his stalker friend.

I love the evolution of the dynamic between the two girls a lot. Kinda worried about that subplot though.

I felt that anime discussion. Being a fan in the early 2000's was hard enough, without all the f*cking gatekeepers! I'd like to say things have changed, but I'm also a gamer.... just shoot me.

I think OP was just trying to make a lighthearted joke, I doubt those were their intentions.
