So whatever happened to the idea of Yuri should never has a tragic ending if you have reach a certain amount of chapters and tankoubon???
That idea? Never existed.
Although there is always a tiny possibility that it goes for the also often seen ending with her returning from abroad after a time skip after leaving to have a small chance of a cure.
My bad, it was not Yuri, but shoujo. You do not make your readers read through 24 tankoubons plus their entire junior and senior high school days to have the manga having a grand tragedy. That was a 70s and 80s thing....
I feel bad for anyone who is still reading ガラスの仮面 since 1976 and there is still no ending. I am sure if it ends as a grand tragedy, a lot of Japanese women will be pissed off and burn the books. At least I was smart enough to have watched the anime, then stopped reading at around vol.12, just to prevent me from hooking by it for life. We are possibly talking about women in their 60s reading it. 49 and counting tankoubons are insane.
Also, at least I did not touch Ōke no Monshō(1976- ) that's 66 volumes so far. I wonder how many original readers back in 1976 will be still alive by the time IF this series will be finished, especially if it ends up being a tragedy?
Why im doing this to me... This has "your lie in april" kind of plot written all over it... I dont want.... Not again.... But im still reading it WHY!? WHY IM DOING SUCH THING TO BOTH MY MIND AND HEART!? IM GONNA BURN EVERYTHING IF I DONT GET AT LEAST A "MC lived her life happily" KIND OF FINAL
It's not going to be painful, it's going to be meh. If she dies, it's cheap tragedy. If she comes back after many years, it's cheap happiness.
The whole guilt trip is not that well described to be honnest. As someone who did a lot of shitty things as a teenager and young adult, and even a few years ago, I think you could really do a better job at explaining it.
But heh, it's not that bad either. A lot of interesting things are depicted.
I find little pleasure at reading it though, as I come here mostly for romance and so far it's not really packed with that.
Jesus fucking christ, this is making me really goddamn anxious. Doesn't even matter how obvious the story's direction may seem to be, it just pushes the right buttons really fucking well. Especially right now.
Goddamnit... I've lost a close friend to suicide just the other day... not the best place to share, sorry.. but yeah, so this whole thing hurts so much more. I don't want to be reading anything this tense, but at the same time, I'm here with some hope of brighter horizons. It may be naive, foolish, or unreasonable, but I'll still hold out hope for some sort of a happy ending. Be it the assiest of ass-pulls, I don't mind.
Damn the main characters in this manga are so fucking selfish. Here's Kaori clearly taking advantage of Ruri's friendship to have her come see Hoshikawa, even though Ruri clearly didn't want anything to do with this shit. And then there's Hoshikawa who wants to apologize just to feel better about herself. It never crossed her mind that maybe Ruri didn't want to ever see her again. Bunch of assholes, both of them.
Well, we finally caught up, its nice that I have the raw all along and now the English is now here, up to date.
This is probably the least desired story that I follow in Comic Yurihime. I read it only because it is there inside the anthology. The plot is quite predictable. Now that Shizuku did what she wanted in the first place, all we have is how Kaori will do. The fact that there are only two themes in the plot (apology to a person. then friend is very sick and possibly terminal), means that you have no choice but to have the manga finished. Any new plot will just drag the whole thing down. Especially the title explicit states that this is happening during a summer.
There really has nothing to analysis and comment, for everyone in this forum. The plot is very week, even the apology plot seems not sincere, because the author did not truly explore on the character's feeling.
I do not care whether it will be a tragic ending or not. As long as the end is coming up quick. To me it runs out of my patience.
God dammit when I saw the meds on the table and her collapsing in what, chapter 11 I had a hunch and yup, the really pulled the "she was dying the whole time" card huh. Just when I was starting to feel the story was going somewhere... this author is lucky I like trashy gay drama!
