Tbh I don't see their bond as anything other than platonic (yet). He had tension with Takahashi as well, but I don't think anyone's crushing on each other.
I just want these characters to be happy man

@Giblow20 no kap he is still a man but most of him is literally female even the way he thinks and lashes is just like a female

Doesnt the character bio literally call Ryuuji a boy? And then he is more concerned about his gayness rather than being a woman. Personally i think he just wants to be a feminine man but idk

Fuckin hell that family's awful

wtf he has a body proportion of a girl (disregarding the broad shoulders), is Ryuji taking feminine drugs?

you know, I'm starting to feel like the mangaka has such a brilliant storytelling technique. Reading this, I always found it odd how the MC just kinda talked with the recurrent characters when they were sad and then completely forgot about them until 4 chapters later. Yes, there was self-grow but it always felt like the MC didn't have any real relationship and the rest of the cast was just there as a filler. But now, the plot bitchslaps you in the face, as if it were planned all along. A meta-commentary, in the same capacity in which the poses of the characters and the art style, in general, are so wacky and unique in a manga that's all about trying to find your own thing. We're directly addressed as the reader through the MC, like a jigsaw falling into place, we realize all the weird things happening until now at the same time as him. Might be unintentional, but the level of care put into this is just mind-blowing.

and yes, the two have big gay sexual tension. I would be disappointed if they somehow end up together for some bullshit reason. This manga doesn't need a half-hearted, forced romance. It's better without any, really. How is he going to seriously care for another person when he hasn't found himself yet, hasn't confronted his fears nor obtained anything of value when it comes to growing as a person.

Even if it's not intentional, I notice a lot of sexual tension between the two and the idea of them being interested in each other would be an interesting plot! I'm just waiting for the author to state what Ryuji identifies with since it is still ambiguous

i really hope they end up together
they have a really strong bond

Thanks for the tidbit! I've never seen the painting before, I wouldn't have guessed the title page was a reference

@faeriedew funny, I actually see him more likely to develop a crush for Mori-senpai than anything else. Specially since she meant so much to him.

Not saying Ryuuji and Sekai-kun don't have any meaning of their own, but is more like Yatora has completely different bonds with all of those characters that played a huge part on his life and his path to becoming an aspiring art student. None of it reads as romantic as much as it reads as teasing/fanshipper stock (which is fine). However I do like how:

-Mori-senpai was closer to an idol figure for him
-Ryuuji is a classmate he clashes with because he cant understand him, yet is not like they cant interact with one another. They were both aiming for the same goal. I guess they are closer to "brothers in arms" in terms of dynamic? But not quite
-Sekai-kun is his very first rival. Him and Yatora are also completely different, but they both hate and respect each other. Is because of one another that they can strive to be better at art.

Is hard to explain, but looking at their dynamics I can see why Ryuuji is the person Yatora opens up to. They are closer to being "on equal grounds". And its always been like that?? Yatora doesnt get him, but he also doesnt put him on a pedestal or anything like that, he just sees Ryuuji, ironically. But he doesnt Fully see him, which is what the later desperately wanted.

Being loved is easy. Being fully understood and supported?? Now thats hard.

sorry commenting on the comments section bc god knows when we will get another update lmfao

hi lesbian here i'm feeling so much omg i've kinda had mlm vibes from yatora (regarding his interactions w/ ryuji and takahashi mostly) as i was reading this series and would be so happy if i was right ;v; obviously i know this is about more than romance and what matters is yatora is able to bring comfort to ryuji however he can and maybe help ryuji have a breakthrough of some sort but yknow...for the future i am Looking out! 100% support if the author decides to go the trans girl route with ryuji though i think both ryuji being a gay man AND possibly being a trans girl would be incredibly important either way. personally i am more seeing a self-hating gay man who wants to be wanted by other men the way he is but also enjoys dressing his own way and finds comfort in that but i would totally open if it went another way <3

It'd be pretty funny if he had a vagina and his parents were the mentally ill ones.

Ah. Non binary individuals. About as real as my chances of getting a girlfriend.

@Succubewbs MC calls one of the people who are responsable for him getting into art because he hasn't heard of them in a while and finds out lots of red fags so decides to get involved which means getting out of his comfort zone. His friend is a fucking mess.

@smolbaka I forgot but nowdays people really be trying to appropiate the term "trans" to mean "non-binary". This is probably why the other user is confused about what Ryuuji is (or isn't).
