Excuse me but I would like to have some plum kelp popcorn. I can take or leave the dramatic youngsters tragically kissing in the back of the theater; plum kelp popcorn sounds amazing. My mouth is literally watering right now.

For real, it seems interesting. I'm guessing the plum is umeboshi, so it's basically like pickle flavor potato chips, right?

During the first dozen chapters, I was SUPER invested in this manga. I would debate character motivations in these comments quite a lot and agonize over unclear stuff. The manga was more like a train wreck I couldn't look away from.

These days, I read the chapter, have a good laugh over whatever crazy shit the author is pulling this time, and then move on with a smile on my face.

Something definitely changed along the way, at least for me.

I think you can easily take this story seriously and enjoy it, it's a complex moral drama about characters in a complicated situation, presented with extremely good art and excellent writing. I'm glad the author is writing this for an audience of adults who know the characters are here to be actors in a story instead of being our self inserts, our role models, or being there to be judged or condemned by us in the audience. Even if it makes certain childish readers unhappy.

This tbh.

I enjoy this manga because it's really well crafted. The scenes of Yuni leading Fuuko by the hand (noticed it's a reversal compared to Osaka?), them holding hand over the popcorn after making furtive eye contact and then kissing, how Yuni is constantly blushing and feels so guilty, but just can't control her feelings, how Fuuko suddenly becomes so meek and vulnerable, how they both look so happy with their little interaction over popcorn flavor and drinks...

The author put a lot of thoughts into the meaning of each scenes, the movements, the eyes, the situations.

But here are people discussing how cheating is bad and Yuni deserves to be punished.

Pearls to swines I say.

I absolutely adore those kinds of details. The TV drama adaptation of the josei cooking yuri "She Loves to Cook and She Loves to Eat" is excellent for this, the actor for main character who cooks puts so much effort into communicating the character's inner thoughts with her expressions, you can track her going on a whole mental journey sometimes without a word being spoken and it's very entertaining and satisfying to watch. She's basically my new favorite actress after watching Season 2 especially.

It's really good and there's full fansubs out there for both seasons if you look :) 100% recommend.

I wasn't satisfied with my previous comment and some things I said, not pointing clearly as I wanted. Some things I said I'll repost as they were and some I'll add to word my thoughts better.

On the page 61 I had one interesting analyze about importance of mother's figure in creation of Yuni's ideal type of woman, telling that Nanase and Yuni's mom are resembling each other physically and professionally (always busy with their own things and Yuni is always waiting for them).
So, I said:
"What was lacking here (in Yuni's relationship with Nanase) as the third part of Yuni's ideal woman?
It's receiving AFFECTION of her mother!"

I can only tell: Fuuko, you just got your girl!

"I love you like I gave birth to you" is the deepest sanctuary which two lovers can reach with each other becoming the wholeness and EVERYTHING to each other.
And it's something very important for same sex couples.
Why?

Fuuko was deeply touched after seeing the baby realizing that she can't have it with Yuni in literal way, seeing the baby as the crown of physical joint of two lovers who are creating new life from their love.
But she became enlightened, realizing there is more to creation of life.
It's all about GIVING THE BIRTH TO LOVE!
It doesn't have to be in a shape of a baby as the crown of love!
It's about joining two halves of heart in one whole heart!
(yeah, we are all made like just one half of the heart and we need our other half to make wholeness and become one. We are just one wing of two, needing the other to fly.)

Fuuko realized it, realized what she wants. She wants to become EVERYTHING with Yuni. To give her love in EVERY possible way. To be Mama who gave the birth to love, loving Yuni as she is her own flesh.
It's the truth.
Love (especially between two women) is something wonderful when it comes to Fuuko's vision and realization of woman (in love).
She expressed absolute love through the word Mama.
She is willing to give the birth to love and she is offering it to Yuni.
And Yuni IS her other half of the heart.
Those united by heart become like Winged Beings, and trying to set them up the stumbling stones on their way is just ridiculous.
They'll fly over.

My sincere respect to author who rewarded us with gem of the story.

And, just to give a short notice:
read (think) my username as Hai Hai (reading it from both directions same way), the curtain is open (whatever it means)...

"...I want to be your mama."

Wasn't Fuuko her sugar mommy already? But yeah, this went downhill since the cheating got found out.

I'm not even mad, it's just so dumb and predictable. How about some build-up first, develop Nanase and Yunis relationships so I can actually care that she's back to cheating.

Though I do hope we will see Fuuko nursing her lmao
