Mayday from "No Straight Roads" is definitely a very relatable character to me. Passionate about her art,kinda annoying,strong sense of justice even when it's undeserved,high energy,and loves cute boys. At first I didn't like her but my boyfriend was the first to notice how similar she was to me and I see it now. She's grown on me.

He's a really big loser. He fails everything he tries, and I think it might be because he's had so many negative experiences that he doesn't even try anymore. So he fails because he doesn't extend effort and then he just uses it to reinforce his loser status and affirm why he shouldn't actually try or expect much from himself. He's pessimistic as hell, not expecting any good for himself, but also has fleeting hopes like the school idol noticing him. He's immature and cowardly and kinda a brat (he's 14 here, and his damn dad's been outta his life when he needs him most, AND he's being bullied by a hitman infant AND his mom is ditsy and unavailable so give him some slack), but he does care for everyone deeply and does things for their interests over his own when it really counts

No, I'm pretty sure it was high schoolers. At least, in the anime (I haven't read the original source which, afaik, it's a novel).
As far as I remember he was taking those pics "for research" for the eroge he was working on, but I forgot whether he was pushed by his otaku friend to do it or if it was his own idea. In any case, I don't think he could do it in the end after all.

Finally someone who understands my pain. Thank you anon, I had to leave the fandom because of these cunts thinking wanting to cut their dicks/tits is the same as being mutilated at birth, being forced into child labor, being isolated from other children growing up and being gaslighted into living a life your whole fucking life. Not to get started about the weird fetish shit they involve him in… We gotta protect yasu/lion from these degenerates.

If he was a real person, he would be horrorified at this tranny bullshit imo, specially children being memed into mutilating their perfectly healthy genitals… Wokies co-opting this character just shows how tone-deaf they are.

No. 205569

Idk if you are a manga or a novel reader but imma try to summarize it as much as I can not to derail the thread more heavy spoilers for umineko ahead nothing is explicitly stated but its heavily implied he was born a healthy male baby but natsuhi yeeting him off the cliff basically obliterated his lower half abdomen in a way his penis had to be completely removed by Nanjo bc it got mutilated in the accident. So they raised the baby as female and made him believe he was a normal girl for most of his life when in fact he actually was a disfigured male who would never develop as a woman, and no one who knew the truth bothered to explain what happened to him until they had literally no other choice lol.

You are not completely on the wrong tho, Yasu's experience is closer to what the intersex babies in the 80s who got their genitals surgically corrected into a normal penis or vagina and then when hitting puberty developed into the opposite went through. It was a thing that used to happen a lot so he/she is closer to what an intersex person from that time would go through to me than to your average panty-stockings-wig combo wearing femboy-wannabe troon. Lion is 99% likely a male but tbh I think of Yasu/Sayo as in the one that would be the Beato we know as a she because well, she was deceived into thinking she was a woman for all of her life and was raised and socialized as female unlike the vast majority of tims, but this is lolcow so I said he just because lmao.

I can get why you'd see them that way but I heard somewhere that Ryukishi stated Yasu's genitalia resemble a woman's more. Take it with a grain of salt tho bc I don't have a source. To me it makes sense because Kanon is more feminine than Shannon is masculine, we know Kanon is very physically weak for a boy his age (though this could also be due to the fall), and Lion being still androgynous despite never being thrown. I think if Yasu was intersex, that would also only drive Natsuhi to want to push them off more too. It also makes Lion's answer to Will make a lot more sense to me, to just view their gender as what he sees them as more because they're not really a he or a she.
I like your thoughts nonna you shouldn't apologise for writing so much. Honestly I actually really dislike Yasu because I don't like the idea of Shannon and Kanon being the same person for many reasons, one of the main ones being how lied to poor Jessica who has done no wrong has been. If I found out my crush and my best friend were the same person yet lied about it and also liked my dumbass cousin more than me I'd be heartbroken and feel so used. But they're a very sympathetic character, I just wish Yasu's existence didn't overwrite Shannon, Kanon and Beatrice's to me and that they wouldn't lead people on they don't actually love. It feels like Yasu only really gives a shit about Battler and to an extent Maria, I don't think Yasu has ever once seriously considered anyone's feelings above their own. But at least Yasu admits they're a shit person. Everything is all Kinzo's fault anyway, absolutely everything. It really is all that father's fault.

No. 205951

It's OK nonna, its just Yasu kept saying over and over that it was the cliff yeeting what fucked her life up and that Lion is her perfect happy self so its sorta been a consensus for years that Yasu was born normal but was disfigured by the accident; but tbh I wouldn't put it past Ryukishi to come out in 5-10 years with another cashgrab sequel pulled out of his ass saying Yasu was intersex all along, so honestly who cares, I think everyone's HCs are valid in this case. He already turned lambda into satoko who in turn was turned into rika's violent bpdchan stalker in the worst way possible and then it was brushed off as "lol she was just angry, all is fine XD", when in fact I remember in umineko's early days Ryu himself said something along the lines of Satoko=Lambdadelta was a red herring and they looking alike was to distract you so honestly I havent been personally caring much about the stuff he comes up with, I noticed he sorta has an habit of pulling shit out of his arse whenever he's run out of ideas and is short on money and the troons at twitter will eat it up every single time without fail Yes I mad at lambdadelta's character assassination in the new higu series if you couldn't tell I really had high hopes for her backstory to be something new and completely disconnected from Higu/Umi for a change

Also tbh I 100% agree with you about Jessica. Poor thing. honestly can't blame anyone for disliking manga Yasu, she was written to be a BPD cunt playing victim and obsessing over battler and blaming him for her problems when the fucker literally had nothing to do with any of it and had his own issues. Also blowing up the damn island to commit suicide lmao, what fault did Jessica or Maria have of Kinzo being a cunt? Lol. I honestly have a love/hate relationship with the manga answer as an oldfag, pre confession of the golden witch people theorized a lot about Yasu's true nature and intentions and she was a lot more interesting character with far less canon material. A lot of people believed she and Jessica were a lot closer than we were lead to believe bc Jess had to be literally retarded not to notice Kanon was Shannon at some point. She saw both of them everyday and talked to them, they were friends since they were kids ffs unlike her parents or Gohda. It just would make sense if she knew something about Yasu's secret or was involved with her way more than what we were shown. She's honestly a lot better than fat groomer George who wanted to marry (what he believed to be) a 16 year old maid fresh from high school while he was 24 fucking yikes (but he's Ryukishi self insert so he had to win over the girl who actually cared about Yasu enough to try to get her to be herself and be happy instead of pressuring her into marrying and having a family asap as George wanted… I'm so mad this fucking bullshit is romanticized in this novel, this is the kind of guy would have dropped her like a hot potato when he realized she isn't the titty waifu he made up in his head ffs, he's barely shown caring about Shannon's opinions or feelings).

I don't like at all neither how the manga turned Shannon, Kanon and Beato into just Yasu's ocs, specially bc in the novels it would imply a lot that Beato's chaotic and savage nature was Yasu's true self and Shannon and Kanon were more of the masks she created to survive in her toxic workplace and in school. I feel a lot of women can relate to that, specially those of us who were shy and had shit self steem growing up and didn't learn how to express what we actually think and got too used to keep our mouths closed and didn't learn to say no.

Still, Natsumi Kei is very good artist specially depicting horror and mental illness and I can't help to relate to manga Yasu as someone who has been badly abused and with a lot of trust issues. It's a good piece of art, specially if you struggled with self image issues, self hatred and you would dissaciote from reality a lot to cope as a kid but Ryukishi's shit writing kinda ruins it. The canon answer is a mess and I think everyone at this point has their own headcanons and theories about what actually happened to fill the plotholes, a lot of people think the way you do after they just finish umineko before they get memed into thinking of it as some deep metaphysical work of literature by twitter and reddit lmao

I remember Ryu himself saying that red herring too! I like to believe that Lambda and Bern aren't literally Rika/Satoko but were born from their suffering. I feel incredibly mixed on 07th as a whole. A part of me wishes the manga had never happened, I wish that catbox had stayed closed. A part of me also evilly wishes Rosatrice was real kek. I think Ryukishi is both a bad and a brilliant writer. I also think he did Jessica really dirty and that she easily could have had a bigger role. I wish Yasu wasn't so enamored with Battler because Jessica is not only superior but also gets along with Yasu as both Shannon and Kanon.
Thank you for writing down your thoughts nonna, I'm obsessed with both umineko and higurashi (so pls excuse me for sperging) and I like what you've wrote. I hate what the fandom has made of Yasu and the ending, and how pretentious some people can be if you didn't like most of episode 8.

Pic related for me. When I was reading the manga in middle school and got to that part where her grades were bad enough to retake some of the tests for her finals, I thought she was just stupid for not studying hard enough to get the best grades possible, because she said she only does the strict minimum of efforts to pass tests. But now I understand. She's actually smart for that. I live by those words now, I'm a lazy bitch and proud of it. Thank you Saki for your wisdom.

My bpd ass was well on my way to becoming a carbon copy of her. Luckily, I've been able to get help, get my act together, and finally hold down a job.
Playing the game was a fun peek at how pathetic my life could (and still could) become if I let myself wallow and spiral too far.

Maybe it's just how badly the comic is written and I'm judging from a snippet, but the yellow person turned the glasses person confiding moment into a "woe is me" session is ticking me off. That's why you're always dismissed, you Emily weirdo.

I knew there would be at least one person who relates to Dirk here. Dirk is an isthmus, he unites us together. No man is an island, entire of itself. Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main and the thing that unites us is the raw humanity in Dirk Strider. He is brought upon a destroyed world and tries to cope with it and understand it by trying to gain control. In doing so he creates a "mask", a facade. He is emotional, but he is stoic. He is strong, but he is vulnerable. He is childish, but he is mature. He is intelligent, yet he knows nothing. He is self-obsessed, but he hates himself. He wants to connect with others, but he distances himself. He is flawed, but he is perfect. He's full of multitudes, but he is one. He's multidimensional and these constant contradictions make him extremely relatable, because they make him extremely human, due to the fact that humans are also contradictory. What a wonderful character.
