idk what it is about this ch.14 in particular but that was really hard to read for some reason?

that aside, i'm glad Watanabe didn't outright distance herself from Ririka or turn her down, creating misunderstandings but rather went with the "i can't imagine someone like you actually liking me" route. That's just gonna make Ririka fired up to be even more open with it!

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.

yo I think you were right

Probably in the ex crush but instead of getting yuri as a way of escapism her ex crush taught her the ways of the yuri

I'm suspecting something a bit more bitter than that, where she was told a "mob" girl like herself could never be the protagonist in Yuri and could only ever be an observer, something along those lines. Which is why she seems to reject the concept of another girl loving her.

She's finally becoming yuri. Just as the prophecies foretold.

Yay finally some progress! Also I'm really liking Sana, she is helping to progress the plot lol.

I love how Yoshioka IMMEDIATELY subverts the 'as a friend' misunderstanding, lol. To be honest, I'm loving ALL the trope aversions in this manga. It's just close enough to the stereotype to make it funny when Watanabe's expectations are averted, lol.

aw, boo. I wanted to see what happened after Watanabe got caught, grabbed, by Yoshioka at the end of ch 9. but at the start of ch 10 it has already moved on

the author might be going for that route fr
extra hard for watanabe if the crush was homophobic

And then they had sex. What, giving grounds to believe isn't slang for that?

A car exploding when shot is about as realistic as a gust of wind blowing a declaration of love to its recipient: technically possible but the odds are astronomically low.

Except one has agency in it and one does not. You know which one so lets drop this pedantic bs

Random inexplicable explosions don't have agency either lol. Not sure why you felt the need to move the goalposts before terminating the conversation, but okay.

It is not random explosions. You know why it exploded. We are not talking about probabilities. We are talking about agency. We always did. That is why I called it cheap because wind is a random event while a caused explosion is planned however unlikely it is.

Ririka getting the girl… What a beautiful storyline we have ahead of ourselves, fellas.

Uh oh. Faceless girls in flashbacks are never a good sign. They either thoughtlessly destry protaginst's dream with a few words or maliciously make their lives hell with bigotry. In fact being faceless pretty much makes you irredeemable as far as I am concerned. Everybody got a face. Why dont you? Sold yours to the devil maybe?

Is this whole story a recursive commentary on gay women escaping into fiction as an outlet for their self repressed sexuality lol

Honestly tho before this I was sure the twist was that Watanabe WASN'T interested in other girls for real life. I'm glad I was wrong

Ohhhh, we're beginning to see where she received her "rules" of pure yuri that she can't escape.

honestly i wouldn’t mind if the next few chapters focusing on watanabe’s background, it seems like an interesting story. we can get yoshioka making her fall in love later

Agree, I want to see Watanabe's backstory, and if it was that Mika-chan's fault.
About your second point though, Watanabe's already in love lmao, just in massive denial (and some PTSD?). I guess you mean helping her get out of denial

I am once again excited for the next chapter. Honestly though I am simultaneously having some thoughts that watanabe's background goes immensely far from having an unrequited love and escaping into yuri world to avoid that unrequited love. Or it's just simply the fact that Watanabe doesn't think that her is anything more than a mob. And a mob not being a background character is kinda weird. Either way girl needs to work on her self esteem issues.

Edit: Nevermind I just saw the no faced girl with long hair. That immediately means that its the first option.

Flashback chapter incoming so that we have the wait even longer to figure out what Yoshioka is going to do -_-.

I don't think Watanabe's gArDeN oF yUrI is going to survive the concentration of firmly grounded common fucking sense Yoshioka and Sana have between them... :P
