How the hell did he pull it off?
It can happen.
The guy in class we used to bully for being a fat sperglord ended up with a girl from the same class that used to be one of the class cuties.
Maybe because he was the only one who still held contact after graduation.
But don't you think something like this is a bit of a big deal?
Yeah but I feel like if a student jizzed on other student's belongings a certain line has been crossed
I think the interaction with the teacher was crucial to the decision. His teacher picked his brain right after the confession, coming to the conclusion that this was based upon guilt and accepting responsibility, and not some ploy to shirk the blame. The teacher respected that he was in it for the right reasons, so he didn't push the punishment farther (since the teacher already knew and stated that the students would give him hell for it).
I thought the teacher did tell his parents? He said he respected him confessing and hadn't intended to, but he's going to have to anyway
Sugawa-end is the end you didn't even know you wanted until you got it
Speaking of Yokota, I'm glad someone wound up picking up Sesuji wo Pin because goddamn is that series comfy and cute. Unexpectedly being a Koganeiro sequel is a plus too.
Hirari is best girl only because Watari is off limits
Two pages was it. But given what he did with his current series and Michiru from Koganeiro being the teacher that supervises the dancesport club, I would only be half-surprised if an OMK character shows up in Sesuji if he could get Katsura to sign off on it.
Sesuji wo Pin, shonen ballroom dancing about a couple of cute dorks who aren't that good at it but inspire people around them because they have fun.
Hence why I said getting Katsura to sign off on it who doesn't seem to be doing anything else. I just want a Yokotaverse.
I love Fap Note. To this day I haven't really read much like it, which is a shame. Also for only being in the last part, the romance between sugawa and Kurosawa is one of the best developed couples I've read (in terms of how they got together at least)
Nobody takes you seriously at 14, it's a free pass to fuck up things, you sure don't have idea because you spent your adolescence being a good kid playing Yu-gi-oh! and watching Inuyasha at home.
I wish there were more stuff featuring reformed bully girls; I love girls like them.
The recent one was the bully from Erased; I wish the guy had hooked up with her.
Comparison between her and her husband and Michiru and Tatsuya from Koganeiro. Also both stories take place in Hamamatsu.
The best part is that all the characters who seem like they'd be assholes are actually pretty chill. There's a fairly large cast and I don't think there's one character I don't like. Some of the female dance partners are basically there as background so far but that's the worst I can say.
More importantly the story takes place in Japan where nobody likes to make a fuss about anything. Apparently bullying in schools and work places is a huge deal and people just kill themselves over it but nobody ever tells anyone about it, unlike in our countries where you can't even call people a fag anymore without half the country bursting into tears
That's when it gets good though. Anyone who thinks he should've gotten with Takigawa wasn't even reading the series though. Sugawa "came out of nowhere" but when two seconds of thought are put into it she was the obvious choice the entire time. The first two characters that really get any page time devoted to them are her and Kurosawa and both gain that through doing essentially the same thing: heading off to the bathroom after school to do something against the rules. She was also his "first" in a bunch of different ways too: first person he fucked with, first person who "talked" to him after he revealed what he'd done and then eventually becomes his first girlfriend.
I mean that part is heart wrenching but it was supposed to be. Can't be built back up if you're not torn down after all.
>TFW I JUST REALIZED THE ARTIST IS THE ONE DOING DANCING MIDGETS IN SHONEN JUMP
Yokota didn't write it, that was Ise Katsura, he only did the art. He did write Molester Man, Koganeiro and is doing Sesuji wo Pin though and all of them capture that same level of comfy young person feelings very well though. One of the things I like about his current series is the feeligns of nerves and fighting through them.
I think what helps is that he's a pretty young guy. Dude's only 30 after all which means a lot of those same feelings are still within memory. I'm a real sucker for series that are more grounded and about figuring out what you want out of life and restlessness that comes with not knowing what the future's going to bring and he captures that all perfectly.
It's just some H-manga. Author is Sameda Koban.
As a kissless virgin neckbeard, I tell myself that the world is unfair. That girls go for Chad because of his body and his arrogant personality, that if anyone took the time to know me they'd see that I'm lovable, too. That my cynicism is just the rational response to a cruel and unforgiving world.
Takigawa is established as an independent thinker, someone who can see Kurosawa for himself rather than the anti-social persona he presents to most of the class. So when she hooks up with Broccoli-kun, a guy Kurosawa himself sees no value in, it's the ultimate gut punch. It's the universe telling him "No, you don't have to be popular to get a girlfriend, you just need to be a good person, and you are not."
>Yokota manga thread
My one gripe with Sesuji wo Pin! is that it's a very well-done sports manga but Yokota's art lost some of its detail because of the weekly schedule.
Meanwhile he was also the artist for Sentou Hakai Dangerous, which was completely garbage but goddamn it looked good. It wasn't worth his art.
The one thing I like is that he actually does really good work with the drama without having to resort to making characters villainous or whatever. The stuff being currently translated (I think the raws are still a good 15-20 chapters ahead since this was dropped for a while) with Rio is really good and the School Festival arc is goddamn amazing.
Kind of a shame that Hirari wasn't in the opening chapters in the background to lend foreshadowing to the "I wanted to join originally but got pressured out of it" bit though.
