Topic of discussion: Should Nene maintain a monogamous relationship with Clarion instead of aspiring to build a loli catgirl robot maid harem?
>>
>>2445546
I don't think evil Clarin will live longer than this arc, she'll probably sacrifice herself or something.
>>
I recently caught up on the physical releases, and man, it's a shame Gokumi didn't have room to fit the manga's version of the finale in. Nene was pretty badass in the anime anyway, but manga-Nene was a whole other level of puppetmastery and trolling.
>>
>>2445835
I agree that Nene winning the battle in the manga with melted chocolate and DDR is a classic example of Rikudo Koushi's comedy, but at least the anime's ending gave Clarion more of a chance to demonstrate her love for Nene.
>>
>>2445546

She should enjoy her harem while she can
>>
>>2445546
I understand the temptation of having two catgirlfriends, but Nene needs to treat Clarion like she's special if she doesn't want to risk ruining the bond that she's built with her.

It was disappointing how much was left out from the manga, but the anime's original ending was really cute too. I like to live in a headspace where both are canon.

Obviously some elements don't work together though.
Rikudo was writing with the idea of continuing into another arc, while the anime staff was writing to give the series an ending, since it's unlikely that we'll ever get another anime.

Does anyone else feel that the artwork for Nene has become too simplified over time?

It's natural for artists to start looking for corners to cut when they're drawing the same character in every panel, but it feels like we rarely get any beautiful art for Nene anymore.

No matter how many times it happens, I'm always a little shocked when Nene reaches for Clarion's private I/O port.

Just watched this series, it was actually really good. Sleeper hit of its season. That episode where Clarion princess carried Nene and saved her at the last second was top tier.

If a Human would want to be with a robot/wouldn't mind being with a robot, why would robots not want to be with Humans/mind being with Humans?
Androids wouldn't likely be that against Humans unless we tried to use sapient ones for (unpaid) manual labor, which would be retarded to do.

B-but I want to read about gay robot fingering.
>>
>>2498269

There are very interesting psychological ideas for that. Just the other day I was reading something about an android of sorts who is pretty much human, just that she was able to do pretty much everything she'd want to do. Pretty fast as well. So seeing a human struggle while being unable to do what they want was something she was interested in. At first as a simple subject to observe. Something fascinating that's the very opposite of herself. And with time, that changes. After all she was still having all the emotions humans have, even though she wasn't one... technically. (i.e. doesn't grow older, can turn things like menstruation on or off... well not she herself but her maker, super resistant against normal illnesses, doesn't really "learn" but rather saves information and so on... though she can get a virus in a different way I guess.)

While this wasn't yuri related (at least... not much), there is obviously no issue to make it work with yuri. The difference can attract, is pretty much the message here. Just like a human may look at an android like that and get charmed by how able she may be to everything, the other way around is quite possible as well.

I feared the same would happen so I just bought them two at a time every 3 or 4 weeks, I started when the first 7 were released and slowly caught up.
Just don't wait too long, I have no idea how long they will remain available since it isn't a very popular series.

Translations are okay, nothing that really bothers me a whole lot, "daya" is translated as "yeah" and "Clarin" is "Clararin" for some reason.
Overal I'm really glad they were printed at all.

One page in the English release uses a masculine pronoun, but that was probably a mistake by the translator.

It really is. I feel eternally grateful to Seven Seas for licensing it, so I try my best to overlook a lot of shit they do wrong. I love Pandora so much.

If I was a lesbillionaire, I would personally fund the creation of a Nenedoroid to go with Clarion.

If you enjoyed the anime then you should absolutely buy the manga.

Preferably starting from the beginning, but if you're only interested in seeing the continuation from the anime then I suggest starting around volume 7. It's still covering the battle with Kurtz and Fear, but it plays out very differently from the anime.

The american distribution system is pretty messed up. Publishers have to announce their books a year in advance. Problems appear once they've caught up with Japan, when they can't get a solid publication date and have to guess.
Sometimes the guess is right (count the number of chapters the author has to draw and how long it ought to take considering the rate of publication, add some time for translation and maybe a margin) and end customers won't notice. Sometimes the guess is wrong and they have to start over.
I reckon US mangoes could be priced as low as european ones if the distribution system was more agile.

Looks like Nene's got another addition to her harem. This chapter could be one of the most important ones for establishing the extent of the Shirowverse -- so Rio is Aramaki's granddaughter who had to be cyberized because she was in a plane crash? That's consistent with Motoko's backstory given in GitS:SAC, but is Pandora trying to imply that Aramaki Rio is Kusanagi Motoko's real name? Why did they put her in a dolphin body? Also Pedro.
>>
>>2631126
As much as I like Pandora, I still find it strange that Shirow is genuine when it comes to making the series something of a pre-quel to GitS. I thought it was just a marketing thing at first, but if this is actually true - even if it's just heavily implied and never said outright - that'd really be something.

The anime is a pretty solid adaptation so they're just as yuri as each other, but the manga goes past the anime.

They're all pretty similar from what I can tell. Sometimes the story takes more precedence like in the most recent translated volume, but generally they all have Nene fawning over Clarion and skinship between the two like holding hands and using the Pandora Device.
