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.

Is it too early to say i called it?

Still too early, we need to see how watanabe ended being that "yuri maniac" and so closed to the idea of being part of a romance

Betting that the crush (already forgot her name) either rejected her or had someone else she likes, maybe even insulting her or her love for the genre in the process, would explain why shes in such denial when it comes to actually being a partner in romance.

Vocabulary aside it all boils down to CHAD "fuyu we are lesbians now" Yoshioka and Virgin "nooo I can't be yuri" Watanabe. That was the 14th chapter. That's the whole manga.

You can post pictures by formatting it like this:

!_[text goes here, if it was a link alone you'd be able to see it but since it's a picture it doesn't matter, you can also write down the brackets alone with nothing between them]_(the link of the picture goes here)

Like that, but without the underscores.

ohhh backstory!!

Fuyu was much shyer than I expected, also I really like her long hair. That friend of hers probably rejected her :(

Wonder which highschool did Ririka's friends choose, and do they still talk now?

We can see Ririka talking to her friend about her crush on Watanabe on Ch11 (first pages)

Can we all agree Watanabe became a Yuri Otaku because she’s a raging lesbian and that’s the best “sapphic consuming media because it’s gay” representation? So relatable (despite the yuri fundamentalist part)

I wonder if Ririka's grandmother was yuri too, but wasn't able to stay together with her love.
Ririka will break this cycle. She will get Fuyu.
Also ,Fuyu was a normie. I wasn't expecting that.

So that's how she got invested with yuri....
The first time I got invested in "yuri" isn't from yuri but a reverse harem one lmao.
Anyways I also think that Watanabe loves yuri shipping peeps is cuz it's something that she'll never have ;)) just a thought tho

yeah this certainly seems like Watanabe is going to become the person she is today because her crush rejected her possibly by going "no yuri is a fictional thing love between girls isn't real" at which point Watanabe throws herself entirely in her "Yuri" as a way to not have to face the real world where she is indeed a gay little girl.

At some levels, I can relate to how Watanabe got attached to Yuri, I was just watching magical girl site and the ending of it rlly shook me so I looked for similar contents to consume (that're less graphic ofc) and somehow when something difficult occurred to me, Yuri became one of my comforts (also helped me realize I like other gals)

Ririka's old gyaru gang is so damn nice and supportive, I was expecting something way different :O No wonder she's so upbeat and comfortable in her own skin, she's been around really good people. Watanabe on the other hand is headed into something a lot more traumatic and I'm already cringing for her big time #_# Poor girl, I've definitly been there, about that same age too...

If they're going the route that the crush rejected her (either because "yuri isn't real" or just a flat rejection), I really hope she doesn't show up later to start some kind of love triangle.

I hope the girl is a yuri denier and watanabe won’t have anything to do with her while she’s busy with her awesome gf yoshioka. i don’t want a love triangle, i want jimiko x gyaru and gay panics

YAY THANK YOU
Oh boy we're getting an extended flashback!?!? yes

Man the gyarus are so wholesome. I don't look forward to seeing Watanabe descending into her depressive identity crisis! She seemed cute and well-adjusted in MS.

The translation was much clearer this time around!

let's not forget that Watanabe seems to have gotten some messages from Mikan-chan which certainly does imply she's about to re-enter the story in the present

watanabe can always ignore the messages. it seems like she has been doing that so far (she’s in her second year of HS after all)… i don’t think watanabe needs closure from her former crush. at least i hope she doesn’t need closure, this can break yoshioka’s heart

Oh, it seems to have started quite innocently. Can't wait to see where the mental break happened with the real world.

That fundamentalist label really made me chuckle. I suddenly imagined an Inquisition =I= casting light upon those who stray from "pure" yuri. Ha!
