At first I was concerned by the way the preview portrayed the dialogue, but in chapter it’s revealed that Saori Chiba was the one who doesn’t think Takatsuki is transgender.
And it’s shocking how people jumped onto the idea that Takatsuki isn’t a boy just because Chiba said so; Chiba has said that Takatsuki isn’t really transgender since Chapter 70. And she hated him most of the time before that.
This is the Chiba Saori who at the beginning of this chapter told Mako to compare herself to Nitorin and “give up”.
This is the Chiba Saori who told Nitorin that even if she got surgery she would never be a girl.
This same girl has bullied and belittled Takatsuki for years and now that he’s going through that experimental “What if I were a girl?” phase that trans people go through she thinks she’s finally cut him down.
I’m not surprised at all that she doesn’t think Takatsuki is transgender, she never has. People who think this is somehow evidence that Takatsuki was a tomboy all along are just buying into Saori’s transphobia.
In other news Anna and Nitorin are officially the cutest couple in manga history everyone else can go home we’ve done it y’all, we’ve reached peak cute levels. It’s done. They were so moe I swear in that moment we were all doki doki in love.
I’ll call Yoshino he and Nitori she, cause that’s what they likes to be.
He’s the character I’m most interested in in this serie. In the begining, he’s showed to be really like a boy, cool and stuff. But he’s getting girly and all blushy the more the story goes, it upsets me. He loose too much sides he had before. Not that I don’t think he’s cute now, he is. But if it goes on and he reallises that he wants to be a girl and stuff. Man… Just like saying to those girls who wants to be a guy: “There’s no such thing as a girl who wants to be a guy. You’ll soon realise that you’re normal too.” I don’t know how to describe this feeling. Almost like a story with a gay turned straight, or a crazy turned sane. I hate it. It’s not like the story is turning that far, though.
Maybe I’m too sensitive. Damn it.
Nintori seem to be heading to that as well, she’s becoming quite boyish until chapter 112. And she likes Anna. The feeling when they are together is just… To be honest, I don’t like her with Anna. Not like I hate her, she’s nice. But I ended up not liking her much because of the fact they’re dating. I was kinda relieved that they broke up but now they’re together again.
And this story is going endless. It makes me insecure. What will this author bring up?! I read some of her other works too, it’s allways like this: starting off nice. And then after a while, I’d start to have a pissed off feeling. And even if there’s an ending, it’s… I’d like to say open. But I like open endings. But her’s… Let’s say it felt like it didn’t end yet. That’s cool though, but irritating.
I like a lot of things in the story, Yoshino who’s handsome and cool. Nintori who’s cute… Doi, Seya, the-sometimes-annoying Maho, Chiba too. But, seeing Nintori with Anna, her having her little harem. And the story concentrating too much on her while I want to see more of Yoshino (and the others) even though he’s turning girly and it seems like he’s not that extreme to his man-dream… And all the stuffs above.
I should stop reading it, but I stll like it. I’m twisted.
Whew… I feel so much better, being able to confess my feelings.
Yeah I’ll admit I’d love the manga to evenly focus on Nitorin and Takatsuki, but we knew from the start that main characters are the focus of a work and it’s not like we can begrudge her for taking up the most face time in a series that is about her life.
As for Takatsuki, I’m kind of sick of this prevailing attitude that people have that somehow he doesn’t “want it enough” “want it as much” or “it’s just a thing he ‘likes’ but he doesn’t need like Nitorin.”. Takatsuki from day one has shown he is a trans boy, and as such there is no “dream” or such a thing as “desire”; he just is by default of existing a male, there are no enthusiasm points for being trans since it sucks and doesn’t go away. He’s still a really cool guy, and he’s always been blushy, he’s a nervous person with a small streak for spitefulness that he only ever shows when he feels pushed up against the wall. Takatsuki can wear male clothes and pass as a guy most of the time whenever he wants without repercussions; he doesn’t need to risk being disowned or rejected to live comfortably in society. For Nitorin she doesn’t have the time to sit and reflect or hesitate because as puberty progresses it’s a now or never situation that she just can’t hide, not to mention she isn’t as curious about “what if?” like Takatsuki because her family kept her in the male role so she already knows about what she could expect from that life. It’s been implied that Takatsuki has always dressed and seen himself the way he does so this is probably the first time in his life he’s seriously considered the severity of his situation or doubted himself.
Getting bullied for asserting yourself and having your self-esteem picked at by one of your closest friends (Saori) over the years will make anyone hesitate.
Also Nitorin is at least bisexual which is completely removed from her gender anyway; there’s no reason the baby lesbian ship shouldn’t keep chugging along.
Takatsuki not handling his transition violently or spitefully anymore does not mean he’s stopped being who he is, it just means that didn’t work in the past and he’s trying a new approach that is more reflective and quiet, that because we don’t see the manga from his point of view, we’re only seeing from the external actions he takes.
And finally if you really don’t like people making Takatsuki girly, you should stop calling him Yoshino. That’s a girl’s name, you’re essentially calling him Emily. His last name or Shuuichi is the right way to go if you’re really super serious about asserting his maleness.
Straight up the most romantic pick-up line ever. Takatsuki you’ve got to stop romancin’ on our baby girl Nitorin if you’re never gonna put a ring on it. She’s only human; even my heart goes doki doki, and I’m just the reader.
Takatsuki: It’s fresh
Nitori: It’s refreshing
Takatsuki: It’s weird isn’t it
Nitori: …So it is weird
Precious transkid parallels, now all we need is Mako to get a startling hair style change and we can have a three-way experimenting-with-their-perception-of-self high-five!
Takatsuki, do what you want!
Nitori, do what you want!
You two are so precious and devastatingly cute.
I bet they party hard.
I noticed that there was some sort of ridiculous shortage of Hourou Musuko fanfiction, and since I’m not one to complain without taking action, I figured I’d write something and hopefully inspire at least one other story. I already know that the Hourou Musuko fandom is filled with brilliant people, so I’m almost certain I’m just not finding the fanfiction that’s out there.
(She isn’t dating Anna in this one, to be clear that she’s not cheating on her.)
Takatsuki sat outside the barber shop with his hands folded neatly in his lap, frown firmly etched onto his face. The public bench was hard and uncomfortable, but not so much so that he would get up anytime soon. Takatsuki sighed and unclenched his shoulders, letting them roll back and rest against the wall, his head falling to the side. This shouldn’t be as hard as it is, I’ve done this before. True, and yet things weren’t ever this serious before, his future wasn’t biting so close at his heels. He couldn’t keep up this half life anymore, the pull to move forward was too strong in him; the direction still unclear. His gaze fell back onto the crowd, his eyes soon catching brief glimpses of strangers and stories he half noticed before they were gone. Across the street a black tinted window held the image of a pale faced and dark eyed youth,hair falling into the face, neck disappearing into the clothes. Takatsuki’s head perked up all the way now, recognizing his own reflection on the glossy surface, and he guessed his story was as mysterious to him as of this moment as any other he’d almost noticed in every other person he’d seen that day. He’d fought so long,and so fruitlessly to be a proper man when he was younger.
