Final chapter of FukaBoku just dropped.

No sign of Kotone and Mei getting together and I am extremely disappointed. I demand a sequel.

That was kinda an eh ending.

It's been awhile since I read the earlier chapters, maybe it was built up to better than I remember.

I liked it, though my interest petered out towards the end. Worth noting that some of the abuse related drama is heavy/real if that's a problem for you, though.

Shape Shift With Me


It's a fine final chapter I guess. The whole family arc was pretty harrowing, but it resolved pretty tidily so I feel like the story entered a "gotta wrap this up now" phase. As a whole I thought it was a great manga though, Mogumo is a good character. The manga definitely helped me figure out some enby feelings in myself.

feel like it really needed a bit longer of an epilogue to give some time to the other characters' arcs but as a transfem enby...transfemby? i'm honestly just happy it exists at all and is respectful.


I do really like the closing line though it resonates i sure as hell don't know what I'm doing

and the actual transformers wiki is funnier and more informative, is the fucekd up part

but yeah wikipedia is a site controlled by a small elitist, conservative cabal. every single article about anything with a trans character is like this and it always gets 'fixed' if you try to change it

Also this is good and quite gay (and possibly trans as well). Though the pre-serialisation webcomic had some elements that were quite yikes, let's hope the serialised version doesn't head down that path.

i just finished reading curse of kudan after picking it up based on loving the writer's previous work on flowers. flowers 2 and 3 are probably my favorite yuri vns, and i don't think kudan is really on that same level, but it's a fun read and i can recommend checking it out to anyone who wants a weird, slightly campy mix of mystery and lesbian romance with some extremely funny dialog, and its true ending is incredible. (kinda light ending spoils) poly route where the day is literally saved by the power of sakuya's love for her two girlfriends as she stares into the sunset and says "yeah... that's right... i love girls and now... we are three girls who love each other!"

absolutely not. unless your definition of misery porn is "characters facing hardship"

EDIT: this isn't to say it's not an emotionally difficult show to watch. it is! but "misery porn" is a bit disingenuous

I wouldn't call it misery porn but I will say that its discussion of trans themes comes with a bunch of weird asterisks and question marks and whether you're going to find it empowering or offensive depends on what you take into the show and how you interpret certain things.
I found the way it handled things a little fraught and unsatisfying, but I do like the show overall so idk form ur own opinion i guess

It has a lot of content warnings, especially for suicide and self-harm. The basic premise is a vending machine dispenses 'wonder eggs' and by sleeping with them, the protagonists enter a dreamlike world where they help a suicide victim overcome a monstrous manifestation of the source of their trauma, using giant magical weapons based on their own implements of self-harm, with the promise that if they complete enough eggs they can ressurect a suicicde victim close to them. Injuries in the dream world will carry over when they wake, however.

Obviously, there's a lot to unpack, a lot of metaphors for the real-life grieving process and coping methods that hits differently for different people and the show's intended message vs how some people interpret it.

i would not bother watching WEP if what you're after is good or interesting trans representation

the only trans character is a trans boy who only appears for a single episode to recount the horrible abuse they faced and it really does tread into 'misery porn' territory

there's another character who struggles with their gender presentation but i really don't read her as trans at all and if she was intended to be it's clear the show would have shouted it out loud. her character is just she's a tomboy/"school prince" etc. who wants to be more feminine but feels conflicted bc she gets a lot of positive attention for her androgynous appearance.

it's just a strange, very messy show that doesn't really pull off anything it tries to do despite an excellent first episode

I don't think there's anything ambiguous about a girl yelling "i'm a girl!" and ripping her shirt open to reveal a trans flag bra and later wearing The Trans Jacket :p

but, case in point! many people take away many different things from the show. just try your best to do a charitable read if you give it a shot.

having not gotten to the trans ep of wep and only his trans manga, i think the writer genuinely empathizes with and wants to write good stories about trans people but his writing in general has lots of weird problems just in like a technical sense and i don't think he always actually consults trans people in his writing, wep's does seem like a bit of a step up cause sunu sumu muriku, his trans manga, has like a couple good characters (the trans girl being one of the couple) and beats but largely even disregarding the terrible scanlation has a bizarre narrative progression and lots of fundamental misunderstandings of weird stuff that result in something i don't think i'd uh, ever actually recommend to anyone unless they can deal with how irritating and stupid its protagonist is to get to the few scenes where the trans girl gets to be a character (because the protagonist is not the trans girl, it is her friend, who loves snufkin from moomin and wants to be the strongest trans ally in the world)
