T-Rex Kanojo may be over, but maybe his new series will get trranslated, in which a dude rejects his childhood friend's confession and then she turns into a giant fuzzy caterpillar (?????)

It's a serious psychological thing, not really a gag manga, though it does have some jokes.

Aww. Shinozuka's actually a pretty good person.

Well, really, everyone in this manga is a good person except for the two main characters, who are adorable garbage human beings. Trash Twins.

EDIT: Has anyone noticed that Kissmanga is making people click to go to the next page? I hate it! That used to be its only advantage over other sites, like Batoto, but now since I've got the Manga Loader script for Greasemonkey, there really is just no reason to use Kissmanga anymore.

Yeah, I noticed that the thing is set to one page now. I guess the site updated and reset some things?

Anyway, anyone finding themselves suffering from this, open up a manga and ctrl+f for 'reading type' and you can swap it to all in one.

Takeo-chan is in its last volumes! The next volume should be the last. I love how the art has kind of evolved since the first chapters.

I posted that because people seemed mad an I wanted to be helpful but then you come along and just be more helpful than me and make me look bad. So thanks. Ya jerk.

Demi-chan wa Kataritai, with Demi being ateji for the kanji 亜人(ajin), basically a word for not-quite-humans (and is often translated as demi-human). It basically means "Demi-chan wants to talk," but with a nuance of them having specific/important things they want to tell [someone], not just idle conversation.

"Interviews with Monster Girls" is a bad title imo because 1.) it takes away the agency of the Demis that's present in the original title (they have something they want to do vs. "interviews with"), and 2.) a decent portion of the story is about fitting in and discrimination and such (the whole "they want to be called demi, not ajin" thing being an obvious example), so just flat out calling them Monsters in the title feels really out of touch with the themes and tone of the work.

I haven't watched the anime, and it's the English title for the manga too. I don't think a show having some fan-service means it can't also try to say things though, so I don't think that gif particularly matters to the argument.

Oh jeez, i wasn't trying for an own or even an actual argument. I just saw the gif and since it's basically my first exposure to the show/manga the juxtaposition was funny.

The show looks like it might be cool/funny/cute so i'll probably be checking it out soon.

This.

I think "Conversations with demi-humans", or some other, cuter form of "demi-humans" would be better.

They have important conversations.
