honestly I kinda wish the author would create a character sheet as I have forgotten all the character names yet again

There is one. Although it doesn’t include the twins

Watanabe is gonna fuck things up in order to protect her distorted worldview, isn't she?

That'd certainly be on-brand at least. But I suppose there's a possibility she's gained some Character levels without noticing... :v

I can see Watanabe turning her down or just deflecting this situation.. I think there is still her own inner conflict to be resolved before she "allows" herself to "become yuri"

I feel bad for Yoshioka but I guess we will find out how she's gonna react to the response - I don't think she will give up easily.

Okay here's my guess: Watanabe has an ex-crush or ex-girlfriend from middle school that she fell out with (thats who was texting her) and so she immersed herself in the world of yuri as a way of escaping and deflecting from her own sexuality, vowing to "never have a 3d love again" and so she's gonna try to distance herself from Yoshioka out of fear of loss again.

I wonder if Watanabe's going to play off the tanzoku and pretend she didn't see it. Which will force the yuri gods to create more situations for them to be together.

This would make everything make so much more sense, so it'll most likely be something else.

Relying on random acts of nature to progress the story seems a bit cheap. I mean it can totally work but not in a romance manga.

Not in a romance manga? It's one of the true classic romance tropes, of course it would be here.

LOOOL my exact thought. I'm similar to her that I didn't have one for so long bc I was a degen. I kind of grew out of it and have had several gfs but it's a hard life ya know,,

That could be what cost her a potential previous relationship and made her doubledown on her shit more lol.

So, my guess is that this Mika girl is somehow related to how Watanabe became the way she is (like, seeing herself as a background character, not wanting to 'ruin' the yuri). I think the her wish was related to that as well- like, obviously 'the world' refers to the school and friends she's made. So when she says she doesn't want it to be destroyed, my theory is that in the past, something happened with this 'Mika' girl that 'destroyed' her world (i.e. school, friends, whatever) that's somehow traumatized Watanabe and made her compensate by casting herself as a side character and avoiding making friends/having feelings for anyone as a defense mechanism.

TLDR: I think that Watanabe's whole obsession with perfect, pure yuri and stopping anything from soiling it (especially when she freaks out about liking Yoshioka) is actually more about keeping herself safe from being hurt again by separating herself or putting up a wall between herself and her peers (seeing herself as a mob, for instance- I've actually coped in a similar way in the past, deciding I'd be a 'side character' to keep from being hurt again).

That's just my personal theory, haha.

This is pretty much the conclusion I came to as well. I hadn't considered what part the girl texting her might have played (I just theorized she had something to do with how Watanabe came to be the way she is), but that definitely makes sense! You put it way more neatly and concisely than I did, lol xD But yeah, same theory here!

Watanabe back storiy eh? ok I will give that lunatic a new chance to explain way she ain’t on pills yet >.> (yes I hate that mob really much) because I hate people that try to manipulate others even tho she didn’t do it like the classic manipulation with malice thing, she still piss me off when she is thinking on how to isolate our lovely gyru

Time to get it on like Donkey Kong!

And I'm going to guess that she might try to say that she didn't.
