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.

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.

yeah, that's what I don't want too, there are still a couple of directions that can go through.
I was thinking about some kind of convoluted "save your love for me later I'm not ready yet" but that doesn't seem so and even if they have random love triangle drama it probably resolves in just a couple of chapters.

This series is pro-gyaru propaganda and I approve.

Mikan texted Fuyu at exactly 1900 on July 7. That's 7/7/7 (pm). Especially in yuri, that's a tad heavier than just wanting to make peace with an estranged friend.

Looking back at chapter 13 sunk my theory Mikan never fell for Fuyu. I totally missed it.

I guess we'll see a love triangle.

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)

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

People on this thread started it and I haven't stopped calling Watanabe a fundamentalist ever since.
I was expecting homegirl to show up like this

Extra chapters! Yay

Edit 1: "Yuri is namely a scenario for stories"?? Are you saying it isn't real? How dare you speak ill of my bible???

Edit 2: Fujiyama-san got 2 imoutos with Sana-chan always being around. Good for her.

Seems like miss excrush over here rejects the idea of love between girls and only thinks it is fiction.

yeah I fucking knew it, can't believe the extra chapter confirms that Watanabe got shot down due to "lesbians aren't real"

thing is, she's not even technically wrong in saying "Yuri is namely a scenario for stories", bc it is. Yuri, as a genre, especially historically, is a stripped, abstracted form of lesbian love and specifically with all the Class S stuff has very little to do with real, queer relationships.
Of course going from that to "ergo, lesbians aren't real" is a completely nonsensical leap, but we all know that.

It'd be one heck of a curveball if that's actually where she was going with that though (if the series wants to go real deep in the commentary side of things)
and what she actually meant was smth like "The Yuri manga you have come to be enamored with, and the reason why you have confessed to me, is a fabrication for media and thus i cannot accept it (because I have actual real feelings for you, which you are oblivious to bc you're too blinded by "yuri")".

Unlikely but i'd kinda be hype if it actually turns out to be smth like that

I assume Mikan in some way regrets how she grew distant from Fuyu, and any other debris of their parting. There's a lot of progress from buying into erasure (probably), misunderstanding or denying Fuyu's preexisting feelings for her, and then recently reconnecting with a 7/7 7pm text. Is this a redemption arc? Is Mikan a well-meaning antagonist? Hmm.

Thank you for your service Windyfall, good work, see you lot in another manga someday~
(But also please replace your Ch 14 Troll Version for future readers. It was a fair response to comments but you made your point by the time you swapped "I'm just befuddled" with "I just at sea". Befuddled is cute.)

Place your bets, people!

I think Mikan was gay AF herself, panicked, ran away (hurting Watanabe in the process) denying yuri was real to begin with and now she'll try to win her back because she regrets her past choices, getting into Ririka and Watanabe's relationship.

Of course, Sana-chan will just frustrate her attempts and the there will be some sexual tension between the two of them... however, Yuna-chan will reclaim back Sana and Mikan will have to step down then, single and unable to make any girl fall for her again...

Until she fatefully meets Nanako in the last pages of the manga! And then-

Picking the gyaru is always the right choice. Gyaru is love, Gyaru is life.

I hope that Mikan's "Yuri is namely a scenario for stories" was about the yuri genre, and not "GL/lesbians doesn't/shouldn't exist irl".
