Wholesome? Tragic is what it is!

It was wierd, cute, and sweet. However it wasn't "wholesome". I wish people would stop putting Wholesome on stories with sex in them. My 9yr old niece is intersted in yuri manga. I was thinking I could let her read stories with Wholesome, but that will clearly not work out.

Sex does not disqualify something from being wholesome, ya prude. Just do the smart thing and actually confirm the content of whatever you're recommending to a child in the first place.

Okay you got me. I was trolling a bit. I've always equated the word wholesome with rated G, and thought that they put Wholesome on this story to be funny. Which annoyed me. I realised the flaws in my plan, to bookmark the Wholesome page for my niece, almost immediately and scrapped it weeks ago. I brought the plan up here, in bad faith, to give my complaint garitas.

While I have NO problem with this story, or ANY of it's contents, I still don't agree with the Wholesome tag. However as long as people really see this story as wholesome and not just listed as Wholesome for a joke, I concede the point. I learned a long time ago, it's pointless to argue over the meanings of words, on the message boards.

Wholesome and Angst seem like they should be incompatible tags at least.

Tbh, that both got a good laugh from me because of the sheer absurdity of being in love with a sentient plush doll but also made me find it wholesome so nice one sono

One of the thoughts I had after reading this was "The mangaka is definitely a fan of PreCure" specifically Yes! 5 and Yes! 5 GOGO. But instead of a male fairy that can transform, it's a female(?????) plushie that doesn't have a human form.

Oop, we got ourselves a plushie-sexual here. You usually see those in ABDL stories/oneshots... Dynasty you just keep blowing my mind year after year!

It... Was kinda cute, but also odd? I kinda wish for a follow up where Lappi gets a human body and they can like, actually be together though.

I don't usually like blogposting, but I wanted to share this - mostly because it transformed my opinion of this story from "This is fun and quirky story, not bad" to "This story has left me a sobbing mess, someone help me."

I read it a few days ago mind you, but only today, after saying something out loud that was practically line-by-line right out of the story, did I realize how similar my feelings are to Lappi's. Not as a plush of course, but being ace and in a relationship with someone for a very long time now but never feeling adequate or worthy enough to be their partner. I realized that even the witch at the start - telling Megu that her love is nothing but self deception - echoes the same doubts that have plagued my mind for a decade now.

I don't wanna start spilling my own guts all over the place, but I encourage anyone who's grappled with feelings like that to read it through those lens, because it really is something special to me now.

I've never read anything quite like this manga before, and it's amazing that it works as well as it does. It takes a bizarre premise that sounds like it should be satirical (or possibly something one might find in the more... niche sort of hentai), but then plays it straight and treats it as a serious, poignant drama, and it completely pulls it off.

I actually liked this a lot. Adorable.

Could be viewed as a metaphor for... hell, many things. Disabilities is a big one.

Yeah, I think this manga is probably metaphorical in some way, but I'm not totally sure what the metaphor is. As you say, it could be lots of things, and disability seems like one of the more likely possibilities, but I get the sense that it might be something more abstract and existential than that. Maybe something to the effect of not letting go of what's precious to you even if it's hard to make that work with a normal life, and what that means. There's such a deep atmosphere of sadness that hangs over the whole story that I feel like it's probably coming from a pretty personal place.

While we do definitely have meme tags and tags that are used in a silly manner, I hope you won't see any completely misleading tag uses like that since it kinda defeats the point. (I didn't tag this one, but I can see why it's tagged the way it is and definitely don't think it was a joke.)

Now that’s true love right there. Almost got tears in my eyes at the end but I understand the direction the story went through.

Also Minalinsky’s comment is pretty close to home to what I had in mind.
