Potions Professor Takatsuki-kun
“Do you still want to be a boy?”
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.
Sometimes I draw Takatsuki. Black-Haired boys are the best.
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 can’t get over how perfect this series is, and constantly feel bad about not contributing anything to it. I made this gif yesterday when I read the new chapter and realized Takatsuki was going to get flack for wearing feminine clothes (which by the way were hardly girly, baby are you even trying?). Nitorin and Takatsuki are constantly pulling at my heartstrings, so I figured I’d make something silly.
I understand if I’m not allowed on the Hourou Musuko tag anymore.
My shitty art should be kept to myself.
Although I’m damn tempted to make one for Nitorin as well. She’s da cutest.
This chapter is just smashing all the feelings in my heart.
Things are getting serious again, and I just need to see my baby girl Nitorin confront her mom. I can’t stand to see all this heartache and desperation.
I’d like to take a second to distract myself with this perfect baby boy and his picnic harem.
They all got together with all this delicious food, and Takatsuki looks like he’s basically never seen food before. He’s going to eat it all.
He didn’t even cook anything. All the girls divided up the food responsibility and he showed up. This precious baby doesn’t know how to cook. Food is basically magic to him.
He’s even still wearing his binder that he’s used for years non-stop, he can’t even leave his house for a picnic without it. This baby’s got a bright future ahead of him.
Look how the food makes his heart go doki doki. I worry about this guy because of his delicate ego, but I think he’ll be alright.
Nitorin, you should use your talents to pull off a midnight picnic for two, this will basically either resolve your romantic troubles with him or introduce a new love rival.
