Tachibanakan Triangle or Tachibanakan love to lie angle ( manga )

What is with that title? Seriously, choose one people!!

a83e6dd21d6bcfa50f233bdab9137184_239181.png

I honestly forgot about this one cos when I was reading it it was my “read all the yuri manga” week, so I legit, finished every title that was existing on Dynasty Scans . I think this one  had only few chapters out and maybe I dropped it cos of that, a short haired protagonist and the fact it was pointless ecchi/harem.

But now, older and wiser, I don’t mind short haired girls, although still not my favorite, but this has all that cliché harem titles can ask for, an indecisive MC, an old childhood friend , more on the pure side and a sexy temptation, or as the childhood friend would put it “erotic girl” and background loud older women.

It’s silly yes, but somehow it’s heartwarming, specially the backstory of Yoriko-oneechan and Yuu ( I’m so shipping those 2 morons) and well, childhood friend is cute and it seems MC might be leading towards her, although erotic girl is quite straightforward.

I am not sure who am I rooting for at this point, I usually focus on back characters in harem cos they might get some sort of closure-like, MC usually ends in “let’s all live together like this whole time” ugh. But the anime might be funny and well, yuri ecchi…yuri harem…we’ve come a long way, back in my day I had to feel the doki doki with Mariasama for crying out loud! Lately we’ve had Sakura trick! Strawberry panic!, CITRUS good lord! Actual legit yuri is making it’s way. So happy. Sniff.

So, check out the manga if you will and be sure to check out the anime.  🙂

NicoMaki Anime VS all other media

I won’t make an extensive list or anything, for that and much better done, you can read this Les yay Love Live  so, having said that, I was reading an official love live diary or something and it was so cute.. I mean, let me tell you a little story first.

I first knew of the existence of NicoMaki by reading doujinshi by Sweet Pea aka Oshima Tomo,  it was so well drawn I thought “legit yuri series? what is this?”, I read ALL of them and more, but hers are the ones I like best to this day. Then I found out it was based on this “Love Live” so I thought “meh, surely there’s not much there”, I watched the whole thing and I found their interactions right on the tsundere spot, nothing too big to make a deal out of actually. Then I learned about the official manga and the games and the cd dramas and that awesome, awesome song they have together…

 

So, I learned that while it’s not yuri 100% it’s very strong subtext and that’s ok for them.

You must know by now I like my yuri strong, like coffee, my yuri goggles broke a while ago, so smiles and hand holding don’t do the trick much, I demand kisses and confessions and what not. But these 2 have enough to make me wonder what is really going on with them

Official

Also official ❤

These both are so damn fucking cute.

Ok that’s it for now, if you don’t know of this pair…GO GET YOUR FIX, read the official manga, watch the anime, read (specially Oshima Tomo/Sweet Pea’s) doujinshis and check out the transcriptions on things like a certain festival..anyway the movie also has a very jealous Nico over Tsubasa getting close to Maki teeheee

 

Citrus ( Manga ) latest chapter

16d3cd72053b97aa9a7f63c7c47665a72b7dcb9eebc5c75507de1a28b35efca7

 

 

An ungodly amount of lines and big letters aren’t enough to describe how spoilerish this post is, if you have been reading the manga, up to the chapter 36, you are welcome to read my writing on it, if not go check it out then come back hehe.

Ok you have been properly warned.

Citrus… I’ve been so delighted with the anime that I almost forgot about the manga…till the new translated chapter came out..I began to worry when I notice it was sort of a letter…and written in past tense..by Mei… she was incredibly well articulated ( considering how has she been honestly) with her feelings and how she came to fall for Yuzu..to let her know she had made her choice to take on this Aihara family legacy thing and get married ( cringe ) and to stop any contact with her…

I honestly was having a revolution inside, I had some actual feelings, like sadness and anguish and… well done Saburouta, you made me have an emotional connection with your characters, I deem that as a very important characteristic in an author, either if they do comics, manga, books, movies, I wanna feel something dammit.

So, I was upset at first, thinking that was the ending, cos, COME ON, how could it end like that!!! But I learned it’s not, now we aren’t sure how this will solve, maybe Mei’s fiancé ,who knows Yuzu likes someone and you know, Mei asked him not to tell Yuzu about it..intervenes, maybe it’s Yuzu’s mom, or even in a more climatic way, it’s Shou, Mei’s dad, stepping in to free his daughter from this burden. I don’t think Yuzu crashes the wedding, that’d be too cliché, then again Citrus does have a shitload of clichés so who knows… In all, I am hopeful that it’ll have a happy ending, I mean, come on, it just can’t not end with them together. It could be too that Mei grows a massive pair of woman’s balls and decides to stop it at the last minute, cos some drama can’t hurt, CAN IT?

Actually.. it’s good the story is finally moving, we spent too long watching Mei feel uneasy and unable to express herself, so at least something is going on.

At some point, I thought maybe Matsuri would be good for Yuzu, not like she’s the greatest person on earth but I sorta rooted for her the 5 minutes that it seemed she could be a rival.

It was sweet to see Yuzu’s friends worried about her, cos she’s out there living (this chapter was a time skip, I’m unsure if it’s like 6 months or a year) specially  Shirapon when she notices she stills wears the ring she got for her and Mei (there are 2 rings)

So..in all, I was a bit sad to learn some people go as far as to wish death and illness upon authors when stories don’t go their way, someone mentioned Kodama..ehh NTR author got some serious hate (mostly from the western world) but you know, if you don’t like it, don’t read it, look for other things. I certainly didn’t like nTR but I waited till it ended and read the finale and it was ok, I looked for other works of her and she has some more positive ones, like Renai Manga, so don’t be mean to people, those people writing manga do their best and we all get to enjoy endless worlds and universes thanks to them. We should say thanks.

Nothing left but to keep enjoying all the anime, manga, movies and books that are out there till we know how this one ends, or if we like to, drop it, I won’t, I’m a bit too invested now, but I surely won’t pull my hair about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Slow Start ( anime )

Oh my gods, this is a title I don’t think I would of picked myself!! It is thanks to The Yuri Nation  that I decided to pick it up and damn I didn’t stop until the last aired episode!! Before anything, please do check that link out, this guy, the OG man, does a splendid job telling us about all that is yuri and girls related, I’ve found awesome stuff by checking out his site, so if you want to as well, go take a look!

Now, the anime is indeed slowish, but in the best way, think about non non biyori, the characters are cute, I love how  Tama-chan ( the genki girl) throws references to games, specially dating sims, specially when it involves Eiko (I dunno what to make of her but she surely has a way with women, whether she does it on purpose or not) , it’s also funny and charming, funny and sweet, what else could you ask for? Seriously, so far there’s nothing set on stone, but I sorta like Tama/Hana and Eiko/anyone lol.

Kamu,Eiko,Hana and Tama

 

If you like relaxing, enjoyable anime titles, with a hint of subtext (hint? pfff, it’s a bit more than that) and silly stuff going on, please do check it out, it doesn’t seem all that at first but it grows on you, fast, I can’t stop watching, I swear.

The neighbor, Hiroe is also pure gold!

 

Citrus ( anime )

Well, of course I’m going to write about this, I have an entry about the manga, oh about 3 actually..anyway, I knew the anime was coming out but alas! I missed the first 2 episodes but thanks to The Yuri Nation I was aware of this and could get on the Citrus wagon.

Citrus-Anime-visual-02.jpg

So, I know many people think it’s a very overrated series, I’ve been reading manga, specially yuri manga long enough to know it has it’s fair share of clichés and in my opinion too much drama and dragging along the suffering and unsolved issues, then again, the art is so, so gorgeous I can look past that, except those times I want to slap everyone cos they can’t just sit and talk dammit, TALK, but if people could express what they feel or think there wouldn’t be any, or not so many, manga titles I guess so…

So, the anime, I love the seeiyus ( voice actresses ), I think they fit in correctly, I am up to day with the manga and I am super pleased to see they are remaining faithful to the story, including iconic moments and facial expressions, they did well with the art ( except, am I the only one bothered by Yuzu’s reddish knees?) and I have liked hair color options so far.

The intro is quite to the point “you’ll watch yuri, girls kissing, these 2 here, there ya go thanks” so no surprises there

 

 

I don’t know how much can they cover in this season ( am I hoping for more than 1 season? yes) but on the intro there’s even the twins, so we’ll see… will they have a different ending to the manga, which isn’t finished as we speak, but I have the feeling it will soon?

Ah, can’t wait to see what the future holds, but so far I’m pleased beyond reason, haha, of course I got other animes to watch, but that’s a different post, so now, if you like the manga, check out the anime, if you don’t..check it out, Mei is as “aloof” as ever but damn she seems more human when animated, for some reason.

What does the fox say? ( manwah)

I REFUSE to play the song as I write, so “No Lie” by Sean Paul Ft. Dua Lipa feels more like it.

I hope I typed “manwah” correctly, that is as you may know, Korean mangas, duh.  So this one… I started reading it cos, the drawing is pretty, I mean, the girls are fucking gorgeous ok? Look

97

So yes, shallow me fell for the looks, but come on! So, next the story develops, we learn quite quickly it’s a love triangle, a burden 10 years old and a lot of bottled up feelings, of course.

 

The new challenger is this lovely, angelical, true Hollywood like beauty, blond, innocent, a true virgin in all the sense of the word and she’s the image of “deadpan” she seriously , so good. That’s blondie aka Sungji

192660cc6ec688ca2466cadd2cb4020e

 

Sumin is the dark haired older beauty,  she’s this important person with many unsolved issues, I honestly have to say I love her to bits, even when she acted in ways less than healthy, we all been there somehow, or at least I have so I can’t throw my can at her.

Seju, the pink haired woman..atch, it’s sorta easy to hate on her at first, for being in the way of all…but it takes 2 for tango so… let’s just say it’s a rich and complex character, as humans are omg.

tumblr_static_tumblr_static_6nsajdcz2ts84cgkwc08cg0gw_640.png

The love triangle may drag on for longer than needed but I liked how it wasn’t all solved in an unrealistic, easy, painless way. The art, again, is just what I dig, the humour is pure gold and overall it’s a great work, it’s finished now so I won’t spoil anything, please do go and read, expect  a lot of smut sex tho ( hooopla!! ) so maybe don’t read it at work. I usually don’t care much for sex in yuri manga but it’s usually borderline gross ( to be honest ) this tho…the way it’s drawn… it’s really classy and tasteful, plus it made me blush so lol it works.

I loved it also cos there wasn’t silly and unexpected men just being thrown for drama, these girls dig girls, they are true, real-life lesbians.  And it has the refreshing feeling of grown-up women, not teens who may or not may be so sure about what they like. Go team Gaji!! ( I think it’s a woman behind this, or 2, or there is a woman somewhere, extra points for that)

 

The perfect fit + new anime

Ok, I’ll keep this short, you’ve read my endless lists for things I’d desire in a girlfriend and stuff, well, turns out a long time ago I  met someone who made me see all the things I do NOT want and more recently, someone who showed me many things I DO want,  so based on these 2 persons ( L and M)  and of course, ex-honey lion and Texas girl, I came up with what is the closest idea of this person who can share my happiness and stuff. Notice how I said “share happiness” not “make me happy” cos that’s mah job. ( note the analogy of shapes, if you want a triangle, and date a circle, you are fucked, thus it’s important to know what shape you want/need in the first place) so here, in no special order.

1.- Ready to be in a relationship.

2.- Faithful and into monogamy

3.- Lesbian or true bi it’s ok, not curious gals here.

4.-Protective and kind not controlling (ain’t nobody got time for nagging)

5.- NON weed smoker, no drugs actually, thanks.

6.- Beer and Wine are a total and welcomed pleasure to share and enjoy

7.- Definitely sexually aggressive, into kinky stuff if possible *grin*

8.- Fun AF, who likes weird movies, anime, videogames, reading, ya know.

9.- I don’t mind what she eats as long as we respect each other and all that

10.- Well, yes, cute.

11.-  Weird and romantic

12.- Happy with herself, open and true,duh needless to say smart.

I think the shape would be something like this :shape
