This nigga better be gay.
>koi no uso
Is that it? Because that manga was awful.
I don't think there needs to be tension, though the story is most certainly contrived. It doesn't help that the main character received notice that the first girl was his partner before it was suddenly changed; would've been better to not have that little detail at all.
System exist just for their dumb love story
From the moment you hear the premise you know what the conflict will be
>no real tension
Because it's so predictable.
You basically know they're in love already. There's no emotional risk.
>You basically know they're in love already. There's no emotional risk.
Why is this a problem? You want drama?
It's not made for forced drama, it's more of a sci fi story proposing the question "what if the government provided eugenics/research based arranged marriages" and is more questioning the legitimacy of young love instead of trying to create a story where star-crossed lovers are pulled apart because of THE MAN.
This is why the arranged fiancee character is supportive and accommodating and why the first love is the same.
Just finished this today and loved it.
I was just wondering why the art was so good compared to other weekly shonen jump series?
Was it that the mangaka's work ethic/assistants was better or am I missing something? This series was consistently great through all 233 chapters, I just find it amazing that it was week to week(not counting hiatuses).
It's sci fi. Eugenics is a science, and the idea that Japan would combat their declining birth rate with it is science fiction. Science fiction isn't about far flung future bullshits and spaceships, idiot.
That's probably because it wasn't a weekly shounen jump series, according to baka updates. It was Shuueisha, but one of their other magazines.
If it was still weekly, though, not sure. Some mangaka are just really really good, I don't think it has to do with assistants.
And the premise just doesn't matter despite the fact that they bring it up in almost every chapter? There was a whole chapter dedicated to the mechanics of it as well. Furthermore, it's the basis for why the fiancee has a difficult time with the concept of love and why the first love doesn't want to pursue her love.
I'm not denying it's romance, but it's also sci fi and the neither of those demand drama. The tags added to it are user-added, the magazine is very unlikely to say "THIS IS A DRAMA SERIES" when it's published.
Again it's contrived just so they can have their dumb love story. It doesn't matter. The mechanics are elaborated because they need that artificial barrier lacking any real conflict. You cannot be more retarded.
Dude, how am I retarded? I said it was contrived RIGHT HERE >>120832456
Are you retarded because I agree with you? Or are you calling me retarded because I recognize the themes? Or maybe I'm retarded because, fuck me, I'm tired of crappy melodrama in stories I read and watch?
I called you an idiot because you declared it wasn't sci fi despite it being sci fi. It's called "soft science fiction", science fiction that is basically set in the near future and doesn't go balls out like "hard science fiction".
I said it was contrived, I know it's a romance manga, and I said it was sci fi. At which point does any of this make it sound like I can't understand what type of manga it is?
Ah, is it because I claimed it didn't need tension?
Anyone know where this page comes from? I know it's from the same guy who draws Aho Girls, but I'm not sure which one of the other manga he draws it's from. I'm honestly just interested in learning what exact chapter number it's from.
>the faggy looking bishie is actually a total bro

Again, I think you're wrong considering the sci fi angle is brought up very frequently. Perhaps I'm wrong saying it's more about the sci fi, but that's what stuck with me more while reading it seeing as the romance itself didn't seem to be given actual focus. The "main couple", as it were, has already had all its development so unlike a typical romance manga that development isn't the draw. Instead, there is talk on why the arranged marriage might be a good idea, why "true love" is inefficient, and the benefits of letting yourself be controlled rather than enjoying your fleeting freedom. Hell, the MC even says as much at at least one point; how he enjoys being with his first love but is aware that this may all collapse in even a day.
Hrm, if it's like that I don't know. Could be google, 4chan, or an extension. I'm not a programmer.
If I ever get an error like that I save the image and upload it to google from my hard drive, though.
Don't get me wrong, I recognize themes here but I'm not saying that this is high brow literature or anything. Even fanfiction can have themes, there is nothing special about that.
>either way she's toying with him
This I suspect. Aside from her explosion of "why I like him" at the restaurant, her feelings simply have never felt legit. The title also makes me highly suspicious, and there's the fact that the first thing she does to the MC is lie to him.
My theory :
Nikasa and Takasaku are marriage partners and they had sex.
Takasaku has fallen for him but he is gay and has feelings for MC. That's why she said he was a pervert. She got with MC to make him suffer.
And to apply my gay theory, pic related.
Nice read, thanks
Fuck you for the feels
And chapter 28 is called "Nikasa and Takasaki" so I guess it's time for explanations.
It was my bad. I know the magazine as "Weekly Shounen Jump" and never actually realized that the "weekly" was actually "shuukan" so I got confused when I saw the baka updates pages. That's all. I don't think you can blame me, the title of the magazine already uses another English word, after all.
That was pretty cute and sad. Thanks, anon.
Every single thread untill we get more translated chapters.
