I want to talk about Demi-Chan -- a kindhearted teacher discovers that some of the girls at his school are monsters. It's a daily lives of monster girls kind of manga, but rather cute and heartwarming instead of your typical sleazy fanservice. I like it.

Thanks for sharing this one!

I really like the dullahan who likes to have her head hugged.

EDIT: ... although I do wonder if her arms don't get tired from having to hold it all the time? An average human head is a good few kilos, and doesn't really have handles. You try holding a 5 kg ball all day long -- that wouldn't be easy!

She looks pretty built actually so the author may have thought of that? Dullahan is my favorite too, i like when her head sleeps off to the side and when she can't sleep her body gets up and lies next to the head with the cell phone

Also major props to this comic for being non-creepy and the conversation being interesting and realistic imo for adults speaking to children/dealing with kid problems in an educational setting

Cross-quoting from seinen thread. This isn't really surreal, but it is the sort of whimsical fantasy daily life that this thread adores as well

This manga has been great but this chapter just really struck home for me. I really love how they use recreating the mythology in the story. Reminds me of hero quests in glorantha

Also new arc tease reminds me of jitsu wa watashi wa

Heck yes, I had forgot about this and got to burn through a decent chunk again. I hope they mix things up again soon because the main girl and main guy just not talking to each other ever is getting a bit dull with her having friends now. Although the bit about her questioning if she was playing god was pretty interesting until they dropped it immediately.

I like that Mana and she patched up their relationship when the truth of her psychic powers was revealed, that's a really neat and cool development. Also Mana changed from being kind of the bitchy girl to an actual pretty sympathetic character! Good for her!! But it just makes Toda seem all the worse by comparison. Literally all he ever does is think lewd thoughts about Nakano. That really isn't a crush at all and it is getting ki~nd of tiresome.

Yeah exactly this! I thought that reveal was really well done and it was a big shoe drop in an otherwise lighthearted one-joke gag manga, I'm hoping they keep that coming.

I frequently think about that Terrarium in a Drawer short where they have the device you slam up people's noses to clear out misunderstandings, and the mangaka is musing about how did they ever solve misunderstandings back then while writing a romcom.

If she figures it out that's kinda the end of the series, unless she flips and goes power mad and has to be reigned in. It is their last year though and thats when these types of stories usually end anyway.

This kinda reminds me of Yamada-kun and the seven witches where the girls get powers that address their desires, but Nakano is like this because of her power. Also yamada-kun got weird and bad when it should have just ended.

I was more thinking about "having a spine" but actually her realizing she likes toda and that aren't mutually exclusive.

This bit of direct negativity might shake toda's unwavering attraction though which would also be interesting

I don't remember did she reveal the dirty content of Toda's thoughts to Mana? I guess yeah the revelation is that she is the one with the dirty mind. Kinda weird that this is happening after she realized she liked Toda already.

Yeah i just reread like ch75-135 and there are times where its totally plausible that it's all delusions, but her conversation with Mana (ch95-110 or so) pretty explicitly has her responding to Mana's thoughts and Mana reacting like her thoughts were being read. Mana even explicitly mentions Nakano's powers later so it shouldn't be an elaborate unreliable narrator delusion.

Also just loving communicate your problems to your friend Nakano jeez. She's right there and can prove you're not crazy.

Although I guess if she had learned how to not be wrapped up in her head all the time the series would be over...
