We’re sad to say we’re dropping Yoake ni Furu,!
Truth is, when we decided to pick this series up it was because of its prior wholesomeness, and the authors record of well written stories.
We were as in the dark about the future as you guys. But now we’ve read the entire thing, and it’s just… not good. It may look like they’re handling the sexual assault well and realistically in the latest chapter we posted, but it’s not the case at all. Overall it’s just kinda disgusting, and disappointing.
Spoiler Daiki never apologizes, insisting that it’s not his fault. As well as being overall super creepy with saying Shouta should only laugh for him, cry for him, take responsibility, etc. It’s gross. Shouta is scared of him(?) but decides out of the blue that he likes him anyways, despite flinching when Daiki forcefully holds him and trying to say stop as he forces a kiss. Kinda like those bl where the dude gets raped and then sees it as the beginning of a romance. Again, it’s all kinda just gross. End spoiler
It’s not what we were hoping from this series, and with a year left to work on it we decided it’s not worth all that commitment when there’s mangas out there we like better.
You’re free to agree/disagree with our choice, but in the end, if we don’t like something it’s going to feel like a chore to work on it. Quality would slip and we’d dislike our own work. I hope, even if you’re disappointed and disagree, that you’ll at least understand.
