    Ayo 2 chapters in one day an this is not even my anniversary I'm soo happy. Thanks for the good work as always !
    thank you translators

    it’s not headcanon when you start forcing it to be whats official aka what’s happening right now with the wiki.

    and we all know wiki is where everyone goes to get their quick information

    I've already seen plenty of people point to the wiki already just to prove to someone he's [insert identity]

    When it can be edited by literally everyone

    Guess that's why teachers always told us to never cite wikipedia as a source.

    Yes, there is. Kind of key character for a couple of chapters.
    That crossdressing tag. Is there any homo here?
    great chapter again, yatora goated
    Well that's uplifting.
    @maisonautsyn agreed. There are so much random bickering in this fandom it's insane. But agreed, this manga was a hidden jem I found someday.
    One of the few series that handles body dysmorphia well. Its a shame that the fan base is infested with toxicity about the topic though.(which is pretty par for the course at this point, bunch of teenages trying to one up each other. Noticed the wikia is barebones because of the none sense bickering as well) The series doesn't glorify it like most seem to want it to. It presents it as what it actually is and doesn't sugarcoat how terrible things can get. Doesn't present it as a fad but something people are genuenily struggling with which is very amazing to see

    Basically from what I've seen, this series can be described as trying to tackle very mature themes like depression, anxiety, and social expectations. While having a very young audience of readers that view everything at face value

    Its an amazing series that is more than the themes it presents at the face value. Really enjoy every chapter and the art is specractular.

    Coming from a family of artists this manga hits me really hard a lot of the time.
    ive spent the past few days searching for this and i cant believe just googling "manga with blue in the title" worked isntead of "manga about a guy who wants to get into art school and his friend is a crossdressing guy" didn't. but im happy to have finally found it!
    @7megumin7 headcanons are fine. it’s not headcanon when you start forcing it to be whats official aka what’s happening right now with the wiki. people constantly changing pronouns to what’s not canon and we all know wiki is where everyone goes to get their quick information on characters. i have my own headcanons about characters too but when u harass people or constantly try to push people towards a narrative and ignore what the author says, you’re annoying and are ruining the fun in fandom spaces. did you even read through a single thing?

    Lmao, definitively not
    The japanese people are waayyyyyyy worst when it comes to harassing anime staff, VAs, authors, idols and shit
    And @irumacchis why are you mad at headcanons dude?
    Thank you Yuka-san for leading me to this manga. I'm so lucky for having the opportunity to read this.
    @SunnyD88 so far, not really.
    Is there any romance in this manga lol
    @smolbaka @eightkey it’s to be expected tho twitter truly is a hotspot of people who want to have mental illnesses. can’t expect better anymore.
    ah yes
