why doesn't this have a thread yet? and translation when
Is this a water bottle thread now?
>why doesn't this have a thread yet?
Because it gets discussed in Recent Releases? Usually manga that get threads are older stuff that got anime adaptations and have some fanart to it like Kanamemo or Kannazuki no Miko(or Sakura Trick or Murcielago which is still ongoing and have more of a franchise in terms of media presence, like ST's upcoming event).
It's not like the Virgins Empire or Fluttering Feelings thread where we're the ones fucking scanlating it.
Don't interpret lack of a thread for lack of interest.
the boy doesn't seem like that much of a lil bitch tho? but who knows lets wait and see
I can read Chinese a little bit, so I've found that ihoshiku's translation in chapter 3 is much different from chinese scanlation.
Since niconico update Chapter 3 (http://seiga.nicovideo.jp/watch/mg147664), now I can confirm there is some mistake in translation.
The point that missed is at the cafe, Touko ask Yuu to allow her just falling in love from one side, she's alright even they're not dating each other and Yuu won't return her feeling. She did't state anything like she'll make Yuu fall in love with her.
I hope ihoshiku or someone else fix the translation soon, because it happend in one of most important dialogue of this series, and chapter 6 will refer dialogue from this scene, too.
omg that changes alot! Thanks for pointing that out and does any scanlation group plan on picking this up? As much as I appreciate ihoshiku's efforts I would prefer more accurate translations
It makes a huge difference. Claiming you will make someone fall in love with you is a massively cocky and unattractive thing to say. It makes it out like Touko thinks Yuu's feelings are a challenge to overcome.
I suspend my disbelief for a lot of weird sentiments in manga, but I barely made it past that line. I'm happy it's an issue with translation.
The point was more like, a scanlator got the title of the series they've been translating wrong.
Also I don't actually follow this series in English because of the dodgy TL, and I actually went back to check on the panels in question. I thought that ihoshiku is completely missing the point of a very important scene.
While it's true that the panels made sense if you're an English reader with no idea of how the original dialogues were. I still think it was very OOC for Nanami to even say "I'll make you fall in love with me." I feel like for someone who was introduced by saying "I don't have any special feelings for anyone." It should be weird for her to "force" someone to have feelings for her. Nanami out of anyone in the series should know how Yuu must've felt when she confessed that she doesn't really know how love feels or doesn't really have anyone special. So for someone like Nanmi to say "I'm going to make you fall in love with me" was extremely weird to me. In addition to that I thought the right bubble where it said "You don't have any special" was weird because I think there's a huge difference between knowing the feeling of love but not having anyone special(Nanami) and not knowing the feeling of love THUS not having someone special(Yuu). By not mentioning the fact that Yuu doesn't THINK of anyone as special, I feel that ihoshiku effectively fail to deliver what Nakatani wants the readers to understand. Although this may just be me nitpicking to an bitter end.
I do read this manga, do you?
You seem to have this idea that if the romance isn't mutual by X chapter, then it can no longer develop naturally.
How did you even come up with this? If this were a finished product with a known number of chapters, let's say 10, then yea, I can somewhat agree with the notion that cetain things need to happen by certain chapters. But this is an ongoing series, it makes no sense to have an arbitrary cutoff point out of nowhere with no end in sight.
>You seem to have this idea that if the romance isn't mutual by X chapter, then it can no longer develop naturally.
No. It's okay if it happens later on. But if that's the case, there has to be some foreshadowing, hints of gradual growing feelings. If there's no hint at all that she's starting to feel something, and then she suddenly falls in love out of nowhere at the end, it wouldn't be all that believable. It'd feel forced.
here's a different tl for the café conversation in case it does become important like >>1912409 said (wasn't correcting you btw as you were spot-on)
Touko: I know you can't see any one person as special to you, Koito-san.
T: And you won't fall in love with me either.
T: But that's fine.
T: So please, just...
T: let me stay in love with you.
Yuu: (shiver) (flinch)
Y: I... really can't understand that.
Y: If you love me, how could you not want me to love you back?
T: You're right... Maybe because I never expected to fall in love myself?
T: Right now I feel very satisfied.
T: I don't want to abandon this feeling.
T: Will you permit that?
Y: that's really okay with you,
Y: I guess it's fine by me.
Again, this is an ongoing series.
It makes no sense to say the romance will feel forced because you believe certain criteria hadn't been met at this point. You don't know if she will "suddenly fall in love at the end with no hints" when we don't even know how long this will be.
The foreshadowing has to be gradual to make sense. But now there are almost two volumes worth of manga and no signs of any growing feelings at all. That's enough to make things feel forced if something happens now in my opinion.
I think you have to look at it relatively to the series length.
So I have no problem with two volumes of "no development" on Yuu's end at this point.
Also I wouldn't say she hasn't had any progress in that area, she's had several very meaningful scenes that made her really think about the situation with Touko.
Ultimately, the moment where the attraction becomes mutual is always going to be a sudden flip of the switch, it's only for discussion's sake that people look back and try to argue which details were meaningful foreshadowing and hints.
I'm just too afraid I might messed up somewhere in my conclusion.
Thank you very much for translation, I will use your translation as reference in page 24 below.
I tried writing summary and translated some pages, hope you don't mind my awkward english
and it may be not much accuracy, feel free to pointing out any mistake, I appreciate it.
- Touko and Sayaka got teased by some male students, saying they're like husband and wife.
- Koyomi is writing something, not class lecture, but not reveal yet what it is.
- Touko come to pick Yuu at her classroom, said she wants to see Yuu ASAP.
Yuu warned her not get too close, she don't want to start weird rumor.
- Student council start activity, new male member joined by former prez recommendation.
(not sure how to read his name, 堂島 = Doujima?)
- Touko wants student council perform a play in cultural festival, using script from a play that was suspended 7 years ago.
Touko said she just giving her idea, they still have time to decide what to do before cultural festival.
- Yuu was asked by new member about reason she joined student council.
- Everyone started getting back home, except Touko, she said she still has something to do with computer.
Yuu also wanted to get back, but after seeing Touko's glance, she changed her mind, said she also want to use computer, and
stayed behind with Touko.
Touko: What you want to do on computer? Is it about your homework?
Touko: You can use it, I have another one at home.
Yuu: ...Nothing really.
Touko: You're always like this.
Yuu: If you wanted to say I'm easily going with the flow, I already know that.
Touko: No, it's not.
Touko: You're so kind.
Touko: Um, Yuu.
Touko: I want to kiss you.
Yuu: ...You've already said, you're fine with just staying in love with me, and then you still want to do these things?
Touko: Uh, ...I didn't take it by surprise like before.
(I think Touko is talking about what she did in ch.2, but there's chance I might wrong)
Yuu: You're trying to change the word you've already said? Is it alright to has student council president doing these things?
Touko: These things can changed. Because Yuu, you always forgive me. That's why I ended up yearning for more.
Touko: It was all your fault.
Yuu: ...Actually, I wanted to change, too.
Yuu: No, it's nothing.
Yuu: .....sure, I don't mind.
Touko: Really? Why!?
Yuu: Well, I didn't hate it.
Yuu: And it would be a lie, if I said I'm not interested.
Touko: What. You said you won't love me back. And yet, you still want to kiss.
Touko: Yuu, you really are pervert*.
(In chinese scans is 色情, I guess it was translated from エッチ/色っぽい, I might be wrong, though)
Yuu: If you said any stupid things again, I won't let you kiss anymore!
Touko: Wait, don't.
Touko: I want to kiss.
Yuu: (Her eyelashed are long...)
Yuu: Someone forgot pecil bag here.
Yuu: Would it be Maki-kun's?
>Ultimately, the moment where the attraction becomes mutual is always going to be a sudden flip of the switch
Hence forced. If they were some hints, the sudden switch would be more like a realization of something that was already growing from the beginning instead of actually developing feelings in a sudden moment, and that would feel more natural.
honestly is she making up some of the bubbles or what
Rough translation and there's a good chance I misinterpreted something, but it looks like the guy is saying Koito likes Nanami but the other girl is saying that Koito is more concerned about herself.
Guess this wouldn't be considered a spoiler since it's just a character's opinion:
M: And you really love Nanami-senpai, don't you, Koito-san?
M: Well, you're only ever thinking of her, never yourself.
M: Wouldn't that mean...
Here's a quick summary of what happened. I'm still learning so I might have read something wrong.
Koito returns Maki his pencil pouch the next morning and he prods at her, asking what she was using the computer for the day before. She uses the bell to get away.
When they were alone together after school, he straight out asks her if she and Nanami are dating, saying he saw them yesterday. Koito mentally freaks out, worrying about what would happen if he told on them (mostly what people would say about Nanami). She asks him not to tell/involve Nanami. When he asks her why, she said that senpai was busy enough and that she didn't want senpai to have to worry about these things ( 怖い思い).
There's some pages about Maki here that I can't really understand, but he seems to want to be the only one to know their secret. He wants to sit in the best seat as he watches their story unfolds.
He reassures Koito that he won't tell anyone and that they should be more careful.
is what happens after Koito denies dating Nanami again.
After pic related, Koito says (mostly to herself, really) that what she did was completely normal.
Here's the biggest spoiler:
Nanami is still the cutest senpai.
>turns out somebody else was already reworking volume 1
So, that's what Nakatani was talking about in her interview when she said how Hibike did what she wanted to do in her manga.
>Are you sure we can eat any of these sweets here?
>Those who eat something from it just have to leave something in its place
>So it's that kind of system, huh?
>[This looks pretty interesting]
>4 candies, but one of them is extra spicy!
>Habanero Russian Candy
>That must've been left here by the previous president...
>Since there's four of us here, let's give them a try
>Sure, sounds fun.
>I'm fine too
>Seems to be just a normal sweet candy
>In the end, it turned out to be a stalemate...
>Can you get me something to drink...?
>You got the spicy one? Why'd you lie about it?
>I didn't want to look shameful in front of Sayaka and Maki-kun...
>But you've got no problem showing me!?
>When things get spicy, you gotta have milk.
This mange is really good, why don't they get license like NTR. I really want to buy it.
With the amount of people asking about ch6 I thought that someone would've wanted to typeset it by now. I'm waiting for a new scanner that's coming on the 5th so I can scan 7&8 but it's kind of pointless if nobody wants to typeset it
If nobody else has scanned them by that time, then please do, so at least we can get a translation script. If worse comes to worst and typesetter really has given up (which I doubt, I think he's just a bit slow), I can give a shot at it.
the person that said they'd typeset on the YP thread actually did release the chapter except they used chinese raw and didn't even bother to post on YP again to QC. so essentially they stole YP's translation. they haven't said/done anything after i pointed this out to them on both dynasty and YP though so im not really sure if they're still interested in typesetting it or actually doing it the right way
Then as I said I can try and do it instead. I will start working on it and if in the meantime the guy at YP hasn't released or said anything I will post it on YP forum for QC.
Also, forgive me for the dumb question, but I'm supposed to use the TL folder for typesetting, since the raws are resized at 2000, right?
Gimmickless romance stories don't have much of a chance for an adaption even if it's het nowadays. I don't think we'll ever see a gimmickless yuri romance for a long time (no, Sakura Trick was not romance, at least not the parts that got adapted).
Here's the gimmick: MC is the one being chased by her senpai instead of the other way around. And she shows some signs of asexuality, as in the proper definition of asexuality, not the density-induced "asexuality" commonly seen in manga/anime MCs.
By gimmick, I was more thinking along the lines of the show would still have something going on if you removed all romance. This way, the creator has the out of not resolving anything in the end.
Take something like Saekano, remove the romance and you still have a group trying to make a game. Remove the romance in Yahari and you got a loser throwing himself into constant social suicide.
I don't think there are too many animes out there where the romance is in the front and center without something happening in the background. I do not have any statistics to back this up, so if you can point me to a couple of series where this does happen, I'll happily retract my statements.
Just realized that was a bit more long-winded than it needs to be. Basically, I can't think of many recent anime where the romance drives the plot instead of the plot driving the romance.
Lack of sexual desire, as opposed to "these girls definitely want to fuck me but I'll just keep blushing and stammering like an idiot and refuse all their advances despite clearly being interested in them" cliche that is so popular in anime with teenage male MCs, especially in haremshit.
Not really a gimmick worthy of an adaptation, though.
That's some reading ability you got there.
>MC is the one being chased by her senpai instead of the other way around. And she shows some signs of asexuality, as in the proper definition of asexuality, not the density-induced "asexuality" commonly seen in manga/anime MCs
>What the fuck is the proper definition of asexuality?
>Lack of sexual desire, as opposed to "these girls definitely want to fuck me but I'll just keep blushing and stammering like an idiot and refuse all their advances despite clearly being interested in them" cliche that is so popular in anime with teenage male MCs, especially in haremshit.
Things of note from chapter 8:
We get a lot of thoughts from Koito in this chapter.
She's still thinking about what Maki said to her before, about her being in love with Nanami.
Midterms are coming up and she ends up studying with Nanami in the library. The other two are busy and Maki declined as soon as he saw Nanami.
Nanami helps Koito study and they end up spending a lot of time together.
Here are direct thoughts from Koito. Someone would definitely do a better job translating this part so I'm leaving that to them.
Last page is just her nonchalantly asking Nanami if she wants to study at her house instead (the library is packed).
Thanks anon. So, I suppose the following will happen in the next chapter:
>they kiss again >sister walks in because she never fucking knocks on the door >"oh, so she WAS your girlfriend, after all" >she turns 360° and walks away
two girls are borderline asexual, one guy can only love by watching, and the typical "rather stay best friend" girl.
Only one guy seems normal but we don't really have much info about him.
Anon, they are just normal people. You seem to have some sort of disability if you think these are not normal.
Aspergers maybe? Borderline? Not sure what you have, but it sure gives you a distorted view of how people actually interact.
Neither of those are actual disabilities, what are you on about? And Nanami being asexual or even a borderline case is a huge stretch. She just really didn't want anyone to get too close to her, like Sayaka says, while now she looks like she wants to jump Yuu's bones every time she's with her. I'm no psychiatrist, but I'm pretty sure this is not how asexuality works at all.
That said, you're either like this anon said >>1951512 or you're just trolling, so whatever.
Are we ever gonna get a scene where Yuu gropes and ravages Nanami, hoping that maybe she'll feel excited? The end result will be a panting Nanami while Yuu herself is completely bored going, "Nope, still doesn't do it for me".
Sorry, but I'm physically incapable of doing any kind of damage to my copy (even though there are only a few things I read in there). Kouhai did say they'll be scanning the new chapters once their new scanner comes in though, so just wait a few more days.
So little progression. Yuu likes Nanami just fine but she's not that much closer to fall in love with her than she was at the beginning. It makes me feel it won't happen, or that it will feel forced if it does.
>makes me think that you completely missed the point of this manga
You won't know what's the point of the manga until the end. Right now, what you think it's the point is just your speculation.
And yeah, I don't think there has been much progression in their relationship. They got closer, but I don't see any sort of attraction from Yuu.
It has already more progress than her Touhou doujins. I feel it will go like always in her stories with Yuu realizing she loves Nanami and ending there. Separation end is possible too.
The story is about Yuu slowly learning how to fall in love, meaning that if the romance doesn't happen then the whole plot is useless. Of course the progress is slow, because the manga would end otherwise? Because there's a shitton of things that yet have to happen? I'm not really sure what you're getting at, I feel like I'm just stating the obvious here.
>The story is about Yuu slowly learning how to fall in love
Just your opinion. It might as well be about Yuu accepting that it's okay if she doesn't fall in love. Either way, we won't know until the end.
>Of course the progress is slow, because the manga would end otherwise?
Slow progress is one thing, but I don't really see any progress at all. I mean, they've gotten close, sure, but it's mostly just friendship from Yuu's part. She doesn't seem any closer to develop an actual attraction for Nanami than she was at the beginning. Just look how totally chill she looks when she casually invites her home in this chapter. She doesn't feel a thing.
She declined because Nanami suggested she should. She didn't know what to do. She just knew she didn't get the "doki doki" feelings for him. She doesn't feel that way for Nanami either.
Ohh, do I spot a MISUNDERSTANDING in ch8?
Nanami being jelly because she believes that there's something between Maki and Yuu while they're actually just talking about her. I seriously hope there won't be any big drama about this, but I'm sure that Sayaka will try to push them together.
It's to be expected that Nanami is worried. There may not be anything between Maki and Yuu but they have some chemistry. Besides, she's a third year while they're both first year. They will still be there after she graduates.
>Doesn't Nanami mean seven seas
>So when is 7Seas going to pick up this
Ask them politely via Twitter, tumblr, or Facebook and make sure this title gains a TON of willing buyer support
Aoi Hana could afford to keep Akira clueless about love until the end because it had a lot of other characters to focus on in the meantime. That's not the case here, and Yuu's "I don't feel a thing" bullshit is already getting old.
Or maybe she really is asexual. If so, I could see her getting more anxious the more she realizes that no matter what she does, she just doesn't really feel anything. Could be an interesting direction to take.
>Yuu's "I don't feel a thing" bullshit is already getting old
Keep in mind that in-series only one month has passed, so it's more than reasonable to think that the situation is still more or less the same.
Which I don't really believe it's the case anyway, because judging from ch 7 and 8 my impression is that she's also subconsciously trying to stop her feelings from growing because of all the issues that would emerge otherwise.
To continue >>1956088
There is this page as well. In original it isn't as clear who is happy as iHoshiku wants it to be.
I bet Nanami has some relative at death bed who was teacher or principal.
Well, Touko tells Yuu that her family only consists of her and her parents, but that could very well be a lie. Maybe she has an older sister/brother that was involved in the episode that caused the Student Council play tradition to stop? That would make sense especially because she seems way too eager to do the play.
>but that could very well be a lie
I don't think she'd lie like that. Touko does seem too eager about the play. She probably was the one who found out about tradition that was interrupted 7 years ago and which matches with approximate age of changes in her personality. Maybe older sister/brother is now dead.
That anon is me as well and yes you right about translation. And that line implies that person is alive. Maybe mom/dad would be happy about their younger daughter treading in steps of dead sister/brother.
So, what should I do about this? I was doing the editing at yuriproject but these guys released the chapter out of the blue and seems like they're planning to do more, is it still worth working on it?
I remember doing a double take when I first read this page, because to me it seemed strange that the author would put an emphasis on Yuu's reaction after the teacher said such an obvious thing, so I'm glad that you pointed it out.
However I think the same would be if he was talking about her parents, I mean of course they would be happy, so there's no need to make that face, no?
In the end the sibling theory seems very plausible, the real question is whether they're dead or not, and why would Touko lie about her family if her older sibling is still alive.
I wouldn't say it's a lot of work but it takes time to learn to do it well on top of a lot of patience. Yes, groups are always needing every role filled. If you're interested in working on things there are many projects needing editors just on Yuri Project alone.
I just want to avoid scanlation drama so it's better if I ask these questions before I do anything else.
To me cleaning was really time consuming, but it was my first attempt and I'm really slow in general. I think you get much faster with practice, so you should give it a try if you have enough patience as machigai said.
at a glance, did you change the leading value? the lines seemed to be squeezed together. some of the bubbles are not completed centered and lining is a little awkward. i spotted a few pages with black dotted lines on the side.
i highly recommend you to read through this http://prettyanonymo.us/index.php/scanlation-resources/anonblacks-typesetting-guide/
i realize my initial post sounds bad, i apologize for that. i am not saying we cant have two groups working on the same thing. this series is a great series, id just like to see some more effort put into scanlating this. be it YP or not.
I've posted typesetting and editing related stuff exclusively on yuriproject, and will continue to do so. If the chapter gets released it will be under yuriproject's tag. I don't know about the other guy, judging from the quality I suppose it will be some sort of speedscans?
I've noticed some mistakes in my own translation thanks to reading your version of the chapter. Your translation would also appear to contain some errors. Would you have any interest in working together to ensure readers have the most accurate possible release to read?
Status of this project at YP - 6 is in QC, chapters 7 and 8 translated. Input or suggestions from any and all comers is welcome.
ch. 6 [most recent QC]: http://safe.yuriproject.net/res/17818.html#18052
ch. 7: http://safe.yuriproject.net/res/18061.html
ch. 8: http://safe.yuriproject.net/res/18076.html
I'm already done with cleaning chapter 7. But you can typesetting 7 chapter or do both for chapter 8 cuz i dont have time for this right now.
>Why you should never use text boxes
Consider downscaling your images to 2500px height or less and saving them in 32 colors PNG-8. 1MB+ per image is a bit hefty for black-and-white pictures.

Thanks for that link. I bookmarked it long ago but lost it when switching phones recently. Wished I'd had it yesterday. It will be helpful.
Correct. The purpose is to offer an alternative to "quality at any cost". I am a highly impatient person. I think it's fun to anticipate the release of new chapters, but only when they are on a regular schedule. I'd say more about why the present work deserves this treatment, but I'd be preaching to the choir.
>Your translation would also appear to contain some errors.
What might those be, specifically?
As for our releases, obviously feel free to steal whatever. You will have plenty of time to reference them.
Where does 2500 come from?
Chapter 7 in English:
This is a new/distinct release.
Note that the title page says Chapter 6 for some reason. Maybe Dengeki Daioh's mistake. But this is definitely Chapter 7.
wow,you guys are releasing the chapters so fast! thank you.
NHFH did the Toranoana extra
Apparently we're calling this Bloom Into You now?
>Literally /u/'s self insert is in the story now
Thank you based Rireba
if you can jp im not sure why you're surprised about this? also that is the official name as you can see here at the bottom of this page from vol 1
He's just a guy who doesn't have any interest in experiencing love and only wants to watch love stories unfold and protect them from the sidelines.
That guy just wants to watch some yuri without self-inserting, but there will surely be some kind of misunderstanding with Nanami, because she already showed some signs of jealousy in chapter 8.
I kinda like there was no blackmailing or any drama when he discovered their relationship. Also seeing him not interested in relationships and even declining confession make it more sure he is not there to insert het into their relationship.
In any case there's literally no reason to believe that this will ever go het.
Nakatani explicitly said that she likes to include males in yuri simply because that way it feels more like the girls choose to be with each other not simply because there are no guys around.
With every new chapter, I get more convinced they won't get together. Yuu's definitely getting more comfortable around Nanami, but is not getting any closer to being attracted to her.
Pretty interesting either way though.
This. What reinforces this theory is the fact that she tries so hard to convince herself that she is not choosing herself to be with Nanami, while it's a clear contradiction with the fact that she choose to join the SC on her own will and be on senpai's side no matter what.
Of course now she's brushing it off as "I'm just too softhearted", but nobody goes to such lengths for someone just because they're too softhearted.
On an unrelated note, why does Nanami say that this will be the only Cultural Festival she'll get to run as President? She's a 2nd year, after all. Is there a rule where you can only be the Student Council's prez for one year or what?
She's not necessarily denying or repressing her feelings. Koito has rather high and exact expectations for how she thinks love should feel. She wants to be swept off her feet. She expects to blush like crazy whenever their pinkies barely touch. She hopes her love will immediately blossom into a beautiful flower. It's why she's wants to spend time with Nanami. By allowing Nanami to be in love with her, she thinks that she'll eventually feel those same feelings. She's waiting for the moment that will flip that switch. But perhaps her love is a much slower, gradual build-up to those intense feelings rather than a sudden drop, leaving her confused and frustrated.
It's even possible that how she actually experiences love is radically different from what she expects. When she falls in love, instead of being lifted in air with feelings of bliss, she instead sinks into the ground with completely different emotions.
>Of course now she's brushing it off as "I'm just too softhearted", but nobody goes to such lengths for someone just because they're too softhearted.
But she is. Note how she volunteered to read the whole novel her friend wrote. Her friend didn't even ask for that much. She just wanted feedback for one or two chapters.
I really don't think she's in denial. She admits she's getting closer and more comfortable around Nanami. But that and being in love aren't the same thing, and she knows that.
>It's even possible that how she actually experiences love is radically different from what she expects.
Or maybe she won't experience it at all. Or Nanami just isn't the right person.
It must be frustrating that Touka choose her kouhai over you but it's time to stop posting Sayaka.
Eventually I Will Become Yours Ch 6
I honestly preferred the rough TL's dialogue.
Yuu isn't some princess experiencing passionate TRUE LOVE. She's content just being with someone who cares and wants to be around her.
Maybe somewhere out there, there is "THE ONE" for Yuu, but that's irrelevant. What matters is Nanami is here right now and that's how life tends to be.
Her love is still growing. Some people take time to actually fall in love with someone, but they might start dating before this happens because they somewhat like their partner even though they don't feel "love" yet.
I don't think Yuu is the passionate type anyway, because she tends to rationalize her feelings too much, so I doubt we'll ever see her acting like Nanami does around her.
> High and exact expectations
Right. What she expected sounds like an infatuation at first sight rather than love.
I'd say what she and Nanami has going is something that has potential to grow into love which will last. Sweeping or not.
Finally caught up to the latest chapter on Dynasty Scans!
While I'm not opposed to any direction the manga chooses to go (as long as it stays Yuri), I love the fact that Sayaka is in love with Touko, and I love the idea of a possible love triangle or love scenarios with Sayaka, Touko and Yuu. Even if it makes me the only person who likes such drama.
I kinda feel bad for Sayaka because she's clearly bound to lose, but she was really naive to believe that things would always stay the same without confessing her feelings.
Maybe she thought she had no chance with Touko anyway, but who knows? Maybe Touko would have tried her best to eventually be able to return her feelings(like Yuu is doing with her) had she had the courage to confess, but now it's too late for her.
v2 of our chapter 6 with better typesetting:
We also have a group name now. It's 4s (from "some sort of superiority sensation").
>I'd say what she and Nanami has going is something that has potential to grow into love which will last
We're yuri fans, so of course we think that way. Whether Yuu will see it that way is another thing entirely. I guess it depends on what the author is trying to say here. At this point, I can see the story going in pretty much any direction.
>Maybe a love triangle wouldn't be such a bad thing.
No. It's always a bad thing. I would rather see the manga end if author is out of ideas instead of turning it in to another drama mess.
Then follow your own words and stay out. Because you are the one opposed to any future direction the author might take. I've got no complains on anything so far, or what might happen later.
Or better yet, get lost back to your everyday RL. Every manga, especially in the romance genre, always has the potential for drama, because it's meant to be fantasy entertainment, not a RL documentary.
Yeah. I think love triangle has not really been the right way to describe it. More like, so far, Sayaka has feelings for Touko, and might prove to be competition for Yuu, but that's it. And that is only if Sayaka decides to act upon them. If the author decides to close her case, then you won't see much coming from that direction.
But the author might add in something with other male characters instead. Haha, I hope the author won't go there though. A Yuri triangle is still better than a het one.
Sayaka is quite hopeless though, because Nanami only has eyes for Yuu.
As for the guys, Touko shows some concern towards Maki and Yuu in ch08, so brace for some misunderstandings. I don't know what role Doujima will play though, he kinda seems like a wild card character so far.
Maki seems like a bro though. He'd probably clear up any misunderstanding very fast because like us he ships them hard. Doujima doesn't even seem like he has the potential to cause problems for someone other than Sayaka since neither Touko or Yuu care.
