Idk why everyone keeps saying yandere, I read it as the popular girl putting these rules in place to make the weak willed girl learn how to get comfortable with saying no. I think the whole point is to train her to express herself more honestly, even if initially she’s just following orders.

While that does seem to be happening, I really don't get the vibe of it being the whole point. Rather, the assertive girl does seem genuinely possessive and enjoying being dominant, maybe shading a bit in the yandere direction, but at the same time she does to some extent have her girlfriend's interests at heart. So yes, she's trying to train her to be able to say no . . . to other people.

I like reading about toxic relationships as long as the author realizes that's what they're writing

Yep, same. They're fun to read when it's clear that that's the author's intent

For real people? The girl saying "you cannot flirt with anyone but me" did y'all just forget that line? And when she was getting invited to a movie it didn't seem like she was being pressured onto it, not like at the begginig when she got to do the classroom cleaning cuz someone else didn't wanted to, it was just a hang-out invitation and she turned it down because if not her gf would be angry

It's funny to see the double standard some of you people seem to have, criticizing bullying so much (because it's bad, obviously, like I saw for example at the Jyoshikou Dakara Safe discussion) and at the same time overlooking or even supporting these clearly toxic behaviors

And I'm not writing any of this out of rage or something, I seriously got into the forum expecting to find comment about how toxic this was but instead I had to see this horrific show y'all put on

For me it's only two (very short) chapters in, so it's hard to see where this will go. I don't mind if it's a toxic relationship as long as it's what the author intends to portray and not something that is shown to be a cute enviable relationship, when it's really problematic.

I don't know if it'll go down the route of popular girl being more and more possessive or if it'll go down the route of popular girl doing this shit to make weak willed girl actually stand up for herself and have some confidence.

Tbh I would rather it just go full on drama yandere because the second option really makes it feel like we're gonna just OK popular girls behaviour. If it's some cute fluffy manga about how weak willed girl can't have any other friends but it's OK cause she has a girlfriend then I'm out

Yeah the main thing here is that it's two short chapters. Yes the line about "you're not allowed to flirt with anyone but me" is possessive, but it could still go in the direction of her currently acting possessive at the start just so she can show that weak-willed girl that she doesn't have to listen to her. It might also go in the direction of the series being about an abusive relationship. We'll just have to wait and see.

Yeah this is the most important part. Like I love reading "It's a Detached Relationship" because everyone there is messy to be messy and it's never portrayed as "good". That's cool and fun. Even that bullying oneshot by Mikanuji that a lot of people hated, I really liked because it's obvious it's a fucked up relationship from the beginning.

It's when authors unknowingly write a fluffy relationship that's actually quite toxic and romanticises toxic behavior is when it becomes problematic. The author's level of awareness is key.

Oh this could be nice.

It's currently in this nice limbo with clear elements of an unhealthy, possessive relationship and a beneficial, supportive relationship. The sheer ambiguity of her having to decline hangout offers from others, which isn't really a reasonable request and goes against her meek nature, which may lead to her being able to stand her ground eventually, is a nice angle. I wonder how long it'll take before she can say "No" to her Girlfriend's advances, though... provided she wants to.

Would agree (excluding the yandere part) and add that MC seems perfectly happy to go along with her thus far. Hard to feel this story is in the danger zone when using phrases like "Reward Time" and MC basking in all that praise afterwards.

You might be right, but there is a chance that this is all part of a ploy by the popular girl to get the pushover girl to stand up for herself a bit more. Basically, by putting her in a position where she’s forced to reject the requests of other people, the popular girl is looking to get the pushover comfortable enough with the idea of rejecting others that she eventually starts standing up for herself without needing a push from anyone else (hence why the popular girl showered her with compliments/positive reinforcement when she rejected the moviegoers).

Or popular girl could just be possessive. Who knows?

As a real relationship, this looks toxic with lots of warning signs.

As something to read, it's hot.

So this could turn into a wholesome yuri with a girl helping her partner become more confident (even if it may involve a bit of force) or... it could turn into a not wholesome yuri with a possessive (and possibly yandere) girl who controls her partners EVERY choice. Either way, I'm here for it
