Ha, you’re too late to cost me money this time, I read it yesterday Wink.

Agreed on all points though. This was terribly charming and a nice one-off (I found it more effective than Now Loading which just felt like it was taking New Game from subtext to text and felt both more rushed and less developed).

It did feel like there was more story here that we didn’t get. It didn’t need, say, five volumes or anything, but 3-4 would have given it a lot more room to breathe. I do hope the author goes back to it; both characters are interesting and well written which is a luxury you don’t always have in a one shot.

The bonus 4-koma comics were a fun little addition too, heh.

Here we go again. Only this time it's yuri animal girls. I guess that could work.

I completely agree with this review. I really loved the manga. It was sweet, but not overly so. It's definitely my favorite yuri title thus far. Anime smile

That sounds super cute and kinda refreshing. Going to remember to buy it later.

Just wanted to note that this story started as a webcomic on Pixiv and the author has kept it going well beyond what's in this single volume, so it is at least plausible that it could see more volumes in the future.

Was just about to post this. In addition to the story continuing, there's also a lot of rougher sketches and supplementary material and stuff on the pixiv which from my understanding fleshes out their relationship more. Really makes me wish I could read Japanese, but for those who can, there's a lot more Beauty and the Beast Girl to dive into.

I just told myself no more spending for a bit from RightStuf. That sure didn't last long.
