Waste of time. I think this kind of twist is just bullshit writing. The sad part is that with the way tags work here I can't just avoid these stories (and if I were the kind of person that like them, I wouldn't be able to find them through the tags either, so it's a lose-lose tagging practice)
We all know that there are people like this, people who are willing to do everything to have what they want, this is a story like that, something based on facts that can happen to anyone, not exactly related to a childhood friend but it could be related in other personal aspects of your life.
You could be dating a murderer and you wouldn't even know it.
You should always keep in mind the saying "you will never fully know a person, not even the one you married." I think this story itself gives that message, out there there are very, very crazy people willing to do everything to get what they want
Excellent writing, beautiful art, interesting mc and a dark plot; there's nothing more I would want from a manga. chef's kiss Murasaakino is a genius. This is definitely one of the best things I've read this year, one that will be stuck in my mind for a long long time. (Also, I think I might have an unhealthy obsession with fucked-up, yandere characters, the ones who would go to any extent to get the one they love.)
Y’know, half way thru I kinda got that she was going to replace the childhood friend, but I thought she was going to do it because the childhood friend passed away in an accident or something. The art style was way too bright and fluffy for me to predict that it’d go down the dark route, but it did.
Yeah there really needs to be some sort of tag other than Drama to tell people who don't like this kind of shit to stay away. Maybe something like Dark that isn't too descriptive but gets the point across.
