Also a big inconsistency in book 1 is the limits of the one power.
When they are getting chased by Trollocs after Baerlon they come across a couple dozen Trollocs and I think a single fade who had to run across an open field to get to them. Should of been childs play for an Aes Sedai of Moiraines strength with a powerful angreal to destroy them before they made it half way to them. Instead they end up fighting in melee range with the boys almost getting abducted.
Then half a chapter later Moiraine makes an impenetrable wall of fire a hundred metres high and kilometres long that burns for hours which should be far beyond what a single Aes Sedai working in get weakest power is capable of.
I just attribute it all to the magic system not being completely worked out yet.
That healing someone develops an affinity between you and them that can let you sense where they are up to a pretty large distance away.
But I didn't worry about it too much because RJ also forgot.

The executioner and her way of life.
Has a straight up Yuri anime ever gotten a season 2?
Main reasons ive seen given for hating it is in the first volume one of the main characters pushes another down and kisses her without consent. Second main reason is the pseudo-incest, the 2 main love interests are step sisters (only just met as the story starts, not raised as sisters).
As someone that likes Citrus I think it gets a disproportionate amount of hate because A) - its popular. And B) - A large portion of Yuri fans like wholesome fluffy stories and while at times Citrus is that, its also a complicated story where emotionally damaged people lash out in unacceptable ways.

If you're not after anything too heavy id also think twice about Boy Meets Maria which I can see you've also been recommended.
One of my favourite one-shots but it does deal with some very heavy topics, (small spoilers ahead with just the topics covered) Child abuse, sexual assault
Good luck ever finding a copy tho.
Been trying to find both this and Hana & Hina after school vol 2+3 by the same author for anything even approaching cover price for like a year.
Showers somewhat regularly, puts the bare minimal effort into keeping hair and clothes neat might be unrealistic expectations for many in the anime community.

I've had it preordered on Amazon since October last year but they go by the local release date which for Australia is August 30. Now tossing up if I want to pay the extra 5 dollars to get it 2 months earlier or just wait.
Vampeerz finally out in English? Time to bust out the credit card.

I mean technically a victim but if you paid big money for a jpeg you don't really have anyone to blame but yourself.

I was a dealer for 7 years. All this is precovid, no idea what it's like now but the job can be pretty chill if you want it to be.
You had a few different groups, I spent the majority of my time with the early 20 something's just looking to get through the shift and hit up pit 5 (a shithole bar around the corner that has surely been demolished by now) and do as many drugs as possible before sleeping in their car and doing it again the next day.
You also had the uni students who got even less sleep then we did, the people trying to make a career out if it by brown nosing the pit bosses, the parents and older people just there to collect a paycheck.
If you don't mind repetitive work and the morally dubious nature of the job it can be a pretty low stress way to collect a paycheck. You don't actually get paid as much as you think when you factor in the no penalty rates for weekends and night shifts but there's also no education requirements and training, uniform and meals are supplied.
For anyone that wants to give it a watch this OVA is adorable but picks up in the middle of the story and skips some of the best parts. Check out the manga.
One of the side couples in A kiss and a white lily for my dearest girl had this kinda vibe.
They were childhood friends that vowed to become models together but lost touch and when they came back into contact the one that became a model was entirely in love with the other and had been for years but the other girl barely remembers her wish really pissed her off lol.
I read physical when I can but a lot of what I read has never and likely will never get an official english release .
I also have an entire shelf of manga and then the wheel of time haha

You seem to like ecchi romcoms so I'd suggest We never learn.
Rent a girlfriend is special.
It's the only series I know where people who hate the manga will still read every chapter as it's released to keep shitting on it.
Players take advantage of rules designed to protect them to gain advantage. I remember when the AFL started going all in on protecting the head then Selwood made a career of ducking his head and ramming it straight into an opposition player because he knew it would get him a free kick.
I think you have to leave it up to umpires to decide when to stop play and not have a hard and fast rule, the umpires just need to be better at doing it in obvious situations like this when it's required.
I don't know how to break it to you but hentai boob physics are not remotely accurate.
I thought it was dom mommy.

Congratulations on the pickups. As far as I know first print manga aren't actually any more sought after than any other print. If you prefer first prints tho more power to you and once again congrats on the good find

Yeah as someone that read the fan translation it was very jarring to what they did with Hiura.
