The last chapter was hard to read.

 

But it was very well played.

Her face is grotesque. Look, we all try and be nice people - especially in person - but the truth is the vast majority of us are shallow, cruel, petty people who willingly gang up on the ugly people, the weak people, the people who are so utterly different from us.

That's why this manga is gripping me. It reminds people like me, the normal ones, of times when we treated others badly for being different. It makes us feel sick to our stomachs, brings tears to our eyes, drains the blood from our faces.

 

That's also the reason why I can't stand WataMote. It reminds me of myself. But this series makes me feel empathy for the victims, not pity for myself.

Speak for yourself. 

Her face is perfectly normal. I don't see what the big deal is.

This chapter really hurt to read.

That cornering technique...brilliant and nefarious. It's saddening last resort but at the same time you can't help but marvel at the flawless execution.

Thanks for the update!

I love this manga so much! I can't wait for the next chapters. Thank you for your hardwork translators :D

Can't wait for Kasane to do the dance of the seven veils. I find interesting that the author chose the role of Ionakaan for the actor who puts pressure on Kasane. It makes sense because it's the character whom Salomé obsesses over, but the one she dances for is King Herod; he also has more lines in the play. Ionakaan stays a sizeable part of it offstage.

this is no doubt... a masterpiece of work , really nerve wracking of how thing will goes to , was wish that they have better relationship than enemy in trade .. kasane x nina T.T

Just fetched my edition of Wilde's complete works and read Salomé. I can understand why the author chose it for Kasane's rise to stardom. It fits this manga perfectly.

 

Interestingly, rereading chapter 07 I saw production poster art for Salomé in Kasane's mother's picture book. So the author really planned this development well in advance.

 

Now I have to find a translation of the Seagulls

This really is a compelling read, I always can't wait for the next chapter. It's one of those stories that gives the feeling its exploring the grey side of things. You have a character you can sympathize with and you can see the parts of her that are sincere and innocent. At the same time though some of her actions and her lies reveal her desperation and darker twisted side. You are wishing her to finally get happiness and succeed while at the same time wonder/worry if her pursuit of that will result in her devolving into a madness of sorts. It's a fun sense of tension the story creates.

Kasane better wipe off her lipstick if shes kissing a man she likes (°ー°〃)

Does anyone know why this manga is labelled as seinen? I thought it would be in the josei genre instead.


Manga aren't officially labeled by genre, they are by the kind of magazine they're published in.

Because it's published in SEINEN magazine Evening.

Well...huh...  Where do we go from here?  This manga is freaking haunting.  Thanks very much for the new chapter!

The thing that surprises me the most is how long the lip stick lasted. Considering that her mother used it for who knows how many years, and now she's using it... Where can I find this infinite lipstick?

Huh...

Woah this is trully really great. Honestly i pity both of the girls. But i dislike them at the same time. But for me Nina is still more forgiveable than Kasane. AAAAAAAAAND THE COVERS ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL! vol 3's is my favorite.

They should really just chain Nina up in the basement or something.

I don't even know on whose side I am anymore. Both Ninas are very flawed and yet you can sympathize with both to some degree.
And yeah, I agree that the real Nina didn't sleep with the guy since the foreshadowing was pretty strong that he would be able to distinguish between them both.

 

That's what I like of this work. It's hard to find stories nowadays where the protagonist is actually doing the dirty work to make a progress. Most of the time fictional characters are so damn heroic - making wise life choices, saying only white lies, murders justified for good.

Wow this is one heavy and twisted story. Been an enthralling read up to this point.

Omake added to end of chapter 17.
