Interesting so far... still shouldn't there be a drama tag and yaoi tag since the dad has a boyfriend? Or am I reading the thing wrong?

yaoi tag

I guess the bara tag covers that.
I've been eyeing this on other sites, kinda interesting premise. Maybe I should take a look as it's been accepted through the RIGID AND VIOLENT QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS of dynasty.

Yes, the bara tag covers that.

The chapter title most likely comes from a song performed by Carmen Mika & Blues Creation.

Seriously? That song's probably 200+ years old. It's a black spiritual.

This came up when I was searching around, and you're not wrong, but I'm assuming the author first heard the song from Carmen Maki (my typo) seeing as the other chapter titles are drawn from songs of Japanese origin of the late 1960s-1970s.

Linked up a bunch of the songs here, if you're interested.

I thought bara tags were just for really masculine men, didn't know that they were in the yaoi genre

Despite those dangerous tags, this isn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Although I still have have no idea what's happening.

Bara came first, stories aimed at gay men usually featuring large gay men with masculine features like in this.
Yaoi came later aimed at heterosexual men and women.

i like this a lot so far, but i'm having a little trouble keeping quite everyone straight . . . himeko and emiri are not at all related to the family, right? they're just in the same grade-ish as rie and mayuko?

Emiri is Himeko's childhood friend (flashback).
Himeko is the mother of Rie and Mayuko's aunt from her dad's side (Toshi).

She probably did, but the Japanese being culturally myopic isn't a reason to endorse their myopia. In any case you directly used the original spiritual's title rather than a translation of the Japanese version (which is simply "Sometimes, Like a Motherless Child...), and you acknowledged the initial source in the case of the Godard film.

This series has a lesbian couple, incidentally. Seems a bit odd to recognize the hetero and gay aspects and not that.

It depends.
The first gay stuffs began in the 50s ans 60s, but they were totally underground and private stuffs, limited to clubs or private circles. The first commercial gay stuffs (and manga) were in the magazine Barazoku, launched in 1971.
Well, more exactly, there were some commercial homoerotic stuffs before Barazoku, like the movie Bara no sōretsu in 1968 or the collection of photos Barakei in 1963.

While the first "yaoi" (or "tanbi" as called at that time) was the novels trilogy of Mari Mori (A Lover's Forest ; I Don't Go on Sundays ; The Bed of Dead Leaves), published from 1961 to 1962. And even the very first "shōnen'ai" manga from the Forty-Niners was In the Sunroom in 1970 by Keiko Takemiya.

So, I'd say they were both born at the same time.

In addition, in Japan they use "men's love" (ML), and not "bara". The bara is the symbol of the japanese gay community and is used for the movies (bara-eiga), but not for the manga. Only the westerners use "bara" to describe gay manga.
As usual the westerners misused the japanese terms, nothing new here, it's like "shōjo-ai" (pedophilia) or "shōnen'ai" (pedophilia OR the very first yaoi manga (during the 70s and 80s), which were as erotic/pornographic as the rest).

EDIT : and anyway, the first "shōnen'ai" from the Forty-Niners were largely read by both gays and lesbians, because even if they were tragic and unrealistic, they were good homosexual manga. The discontent from the gays (but not lesbians) began with the yaoi dōjinshi in the 1980 and 1990, especially with the "yaoi ronsō" (debate of the yaoi) between 1992-1996, were the gays began to become vocal against the yaoi stuffs.

There is something about Shimura Takako’s work that always drags me in, despite knowing full well that it will expose me to a rollercoaster ride filled with emotional turmoil. I cannot help myself but read them anyway, but have to admit that from all my favourite authors, her work is the one I reread the least often. Nevertheless, as always, I like this one.

The tags worried me, but it's actually really nice.

The changing points of view of the story is really well done. And a MC who doesn't go for the "prince" type is cool.

I look forward for the rest.

And who said you don't learn anything by reading manga?

Stories with realistically gay parents will always get my vote of approval. So far everything is being written very well and building up a nice ensemble cast. I hope the series continues to be translated past the first volume :)

I was caught off guard with how well written the friend's character was written. The relationships that happen around her and how her family reacts and how she reacts to Kaga san. But man how do things escalate that fast...But well i guess that's humans for you...
