Finished this.

Thought #1: That was great.
Thought #2: I am going to award myself an imaginary $100 for every forum post complaining about the ending, wishing for more, or making moral judgments about the behavior of the characters.

I’m imaginary rich, I tell you! Hah hah! Imaginary rich beyond the dreams of avarice!

Bittersweet but those stories are nice too in their own way.

Why can't this author let the gyarus be happy

With that out of the way, even beyond the personal side, I like this as fea believable depiction of the way peoples' paths sometimes cross in meaningful, impactful ways that don't end up in some sort of strong connection or dramatic story. We don't get that very often, especially in a genre usually focused on romance, and it's really cool to see. The last story like that I can remember seeing on here was this one, which gave a similar sense of something that could be a full yuri story that ended up being just a moment. This kind of thing is good too, isn't it?

Generally agree, these short angsty stories are good too, but it still hurts. There are so many possibilities for them to meet and connect in the future

Time to write fanfic I guess

Seems like the Otaku just used her (like she said, for her pretty face). So there was no hope to begin with. Meh.

Pretty much coupled with the lack of a good introduction to her snatching away her notebook just screws up the eventual chance to actually develop in the relationship in any way. To be honest this could have been a nice wholesome series if only the two weren't being so aggressive towards each other. It just looks like they both wanted to keep their own pride intact without even trying to apologize for what they have done wrong. Sure if the mangaka had gone through some form of bullying in the past then she might not hold the best impression of the MC nonetheless, she could at least try to hear her out first. Though that is not to say that the MC herself hadn't already screwed up her own first impression with the way that she had acted. Damn mate...

Nonetheless this was a great read.

To me, it's very realistic of how teenagers would react and behave towards each other, especially teenagers who come from different social circles/cliques (gyaru vs. otaku). There's heavy implications that otaku was bullied in the past for her yuri manga (look at her dialogue on page 7), so perhaps that's why she was defensive towards gyaru. And gyaru, being a teenaged mean girl, acted exactly like that upon initially finding out about otaku's manga.

I think, if anything, this is a life lesson for the two of them. Otaku seems to have moved on and seems to have a stable career in drawing in the present, not really thinking too much about the past. Gyaru, on the other hand, is still caught up and feels guilty for what she said and treated otaku, and the takeaway for her is to not pre-judge another person and insult the things they're passionate about.

So yeah, this was a great read. I hope we see more of this stuff because--while the dramatic, fluffy, etc. stuff is nice--sometimes realistic works are nice, too.

These are bad days for gyarus. The one in Business Yuri Idols, this one... all striking out.

They should take a cue from Anzai -- that's a gyaru who knows her stuff.

WOOoooww I'm depresso now but that was interesting and well done? I feel like this can continue for a bit until we can have a moment went they make up and leave things in good terms, say some things they regret and to say sorry for been a 8itch.... It doesn't have to have yuri really but the story got me hooked :)
Thanks for the translation!! <3
