Kafka of Danke fürs Lesen and I went back and forth on the Yuri tag for this one. I also considered Transgender.

I think it's somewhere in between for both, so I just left them off for now. Please vote with your tag suggestions, and I will take the consensus.

Based on chapter 2 I'd say it's not Yuri or Transgender
Later chapters might change that (kinda hope they do. want more trans yuri), but for now I'd say Het + Crossdressing fits best

Considering the person in question said that they don’t want to be a girl, and just likes the clothing I would not consider this trans.

Manga so far makes it pretty clear it's crossdressing

Basically, it's all down to how the character in question identifies (or in more complex cases, the identity crisis they're going through), and this one explicitly states that they don't identify as female. I do kinda worry about how that new(?) Not yuri tag might get abused, though.

Also, ix nay on the ertain-four-letter-word cay.

Yeah, Jun clearly states they're only interested in crossdressing, that they don't want to be female... could be enby, but doesn't really hint at that?

Personal opinion: Cute het couple with crossdressing dates, I'm filing this under Honorary Yuri. :3

Kind of disgusting to assume the character is trans because he likes to cross-dress

I remember this one from like a year ago, when the first chapter was translated by another group, but well like in march this year the author made the second chapter, who knows if author plan to continue from then on, probably another year
(there is a r18 chapter for this in fanbox, back then when chapter 1 released it was free to read for a period of time but, now is paid anyway lol, which is just het porn with crossdressing)

I think it's not yuri. IRL, I'd assume someone who felt that crossdressing "suited" them who preferred to socialize when others saw them as the opposite gender, was not cishet, but this is manga, so... it's whatever the author is thinking (unless you're pro-death of the author, then there's no definitive answer).

I'm more a "Death Of The Author"-guy myself, but even so the characters make it pretty clear that it's "just" a cishet couple with him crossdressing. I think "crossdressing suited me" refers to it befitting his physique and appearance, as specified in the next sentence, less so internal his self-image.

Either way, cute little story.

Is everyone being distracted from the real issue at hand?

What on Earth is this Mangapark level of chapter arrangement?,and with only two chapters to work with too.

bro it's just a drawing you don't gotta jump to its defense

besides, sometimes it can be a pipeline from one to the other and some of the people who think it's a possibility might be speakin' from experience themselves. don't get your knickers in a twist just because some people are hopeful for some kind of recognition.

Death of the Author isn't really something you can be pro or against, it's just a simple fact (established in the 1960s) that the reader makes the meaning out of the story, not the author. For proof, read any comments section here, particularly one with an exasperated Blaastar, and you will see readers make up any story they want. The idea is that it is more productive to read the text closely to draw your interpretation because it is largely fruitless to divine authorial intent through the lens of fiction as if the author was confiding in us, and so that readers can discuss a story and try to convince each other of their interpretation with a concrete point of reference. I guess my point is that whatever the author is thinking is always irrelevant because we only have the text.

And a clarification as it does not mean that characters are like real people or that a story world should be treated as if it were the real world because we don't have or don't care about and author's explanation. I still think you have a valid criticism that the author's phrasing seems suspicious and even misleading in the reasons for crossdressing and time will tell if they're conflating crossdressing and being trans

For the record, that's a paraphrase of Barthes, not my ideas. Don't @me for plagiarism.

Hey, I like reading Blastaar's comments. I think they're one of the most enriching commenters on the site, occasional sharp tongue notwithstanding.

Largely yes, but it's sometimes prudent to have at least some awareness of who's written the text and what views and experiences may have informed its inception – even though that can never really refute what is clearly shown/told in a work, mind you. Context beyond the presumed intention – like time, culture, personal experiences both of the person interpreting as well as the author – is still relevant to an interpretation, whether we like it or not (which does not mean that it validates or invalidates an interpretation. It's just reasonably helpful additional information towards understanding how different people might arrive at different conclusions from the same text).
