I just assume the amount of votes convinced them that there is a proper audience. But you know, A Room For Two was also licensed years ago. So 4koma isnt off the table at all.

I find it weird that MM is getting imported is due to the fact that a few years ago a rep from either Seven Seas or Yen Press (I can't remember which one) said that 4komas weren't worth the money to adapt. So the idea that MM is being brought over is just mind-boggling.

@karappo Why thought ? 7 seas does a good job with the translations. I have severals 7seas mangas at home and they're pretty good.

@saktomo
The reason is that they did surveys as to what manga they should license and people voted for MachiMazo among other things.
Volume 1 comes out in January 2021.

Kyoani are just the pinnacle of yuribaiters bro its in all their fucking shows, why? I really dont know really, do the people there like it? Does it increase sales? For shits and giggles ? I really couldn't tell you, but its most likely profit i'd guess, and hey theres nothing wrong with that, gotta get the money for their spectacular animation from somewhere.

Still yeah with Kobayashi its different since the source material IS yuri unlike their originals like K-ON where it has a whiff of yuri here and there or as you pointed out Hibike no Euphonium where they just straight up switch out the guy for the girl in certain scenes and it gives everyone a very strong sense of "holy shit are we actually getting yuri" but no, no we're not its just bait, a delicious carrot dangling in front of you to even when it turns out to go nowhere have fans go crazy over theories and make doujins on kumika x reina and go crazy on their figurines, and placate crazy otakus about girls maintaining their "purity" i dont know if you know how crazy that shit is but yeah another entirely different can of worms.

A bit elaborate for a point so simple, but yes. You got the gist of it.


Dragon Maid is only explicitly yuri, because the source material is as well from chapter 1.

Okay, that makes perfect sense. It's what makes the Kumiko/Reina resolution so cruel in the anime of Hibike Euphonium. It's not that Reina and Kumiko don't have every right to be heterosexual or bi or whatever; it's just that the straight turns followed some explosively deceptive depictions of lesbian love. (As Reina eye-fucks Kumiko from a couple of inches away, Kumiko says that she is confessing her love to Reina.) Reina and Kumiko drifting apart without making love is not a betrayal in terms of "bait"; Reina suddenly disclosing that she is in love with their sensei certainly is, as far as the anime has seemed to tell the story.

KyoAni had a particularly cruel tendency to do this. They didn't create a forthright and honest yuri until Kobayashi and Her Dragon Maid.

So we're talking about bait as false promises regarding the very nature of the relationship. That explains why Maria-sama ga Miteru is unquestionably yuri; it depicts fierce and complex loves between women but does not promise what it does not provide. Some of the women may go on to marry men or whatever, but you're not led to believe that this isn't possible or even likely in some cases. If Yoko went on to get married, that would be no surprise. If Sei and Kei decided to break up so they could both marry guys...

Is this what you meant?

No, your original definition of bait is correct. Yuribait does not have an official definition and thus is used for a variety of things, but by the simple meaning of the word and how it was originally used by the yuri community, it is a bait-and-switch. Lots of yuri subtext, but by the end of the story (or earlier) the girls all end up going out with boys or getting married to men. Some people erroneously use yuribait for subtext stories that have no definitive conclusion either way or for works that they perceive to have yuri subtext and that don't focus on it. It dilutes the term when people do this, but as I said, it isn't exactly well defined. If there is no intent from the author to bait the audience, then it cannot be bait honestly.

Yuri is the depiction of lesbian relationships or love in any form. This includes things where not a single kiss or even sexual act are shared, as long as two girls/women confess their romantic feelings to each other or make it known explicitly in other ways. So let's say MachiMazo ends without them confessing, kissing or in any way acknowleding their feelings. It would then be considered subtext. If Shamiko for some absurd reason is shown to marry a man in the future in some epilogue, it would be yuribait, because as we both agree, the romantic intent betwen ShamiMomo is very obvious here.

In all seriousness, you made me understand something I may have misunderstood all this time.

I always thought that "bait" meant deception, as in a bait-and-switch, promising or suggesting something that wouldn't turn out to be true, like the Kumiko/Reina story in the anime *Hibike Euphonium*. There's no deception in this; it never suggests anything it isn't offering straight up, so I didn't see any bait in it.

I used to be a literature teacher, which makes one a certain kind of stupid. I thought that "yuri" meant that the series belonged to an artistic tradition having to do with the eroticism of female friendship, whether or not it included any particular physical intimacy.

But are you saying that "yuri" is actually a category of EXPECTATIONS REGARDING TAGS? What are those expectations? Hugging, kissing, sex? So a series isn't yuri unless it includes some assortment of those things?

That's why we wind up with shit tags like "shoujo ai."

I figured putting spoilers behind the SPOILER button was enough, but it's hard to know around here.

You cannot determine if something is bait before the series is finished. Plain and simple.
