“The manga is a spin-off from Amazume’s Nana to Kaoru manga, which takes place during Nana and Kaoru’s third year of high school.”

I am not reading this but this sentence confused me.

Why is it called a spin-off when it looks like a sequel?

The original had a sequel (Black Label) that takes place after that. As such, there isn’t much that the author can do in terms of character development or plot progression, as that would contradict Black Label which started out with things essentially as the original series was. had stopped. As such, it basically looks like an anime filler, where it certainly goes in some interesting directions but nothing really sticks.

The article also references Black Label as a spin-off, which I would say is incorrect. It really is a sequel.

Okkk … so the series had a sequel but the author then decided to do a prequel to the sequel and the two sequels are called spin-offs …

And here I was thinking that the Tagaki-san situation of “Let’s do a sequel to a manga already in progress, then do a sequel and run all 3 at the same time” was a little messy.

I never read any of the spin-offs but the original series was really good. I’m kind of surprised that it was never picked up and cleared.

Black Label takes place during the summer of their 3rd year, doesn’t it? Does this cover the entire 3rd year (until spring) or did it stop before summer (and the black label)?

I can’t help but wonder what Amazume was thinking when starting a second series which takes place after a time jump, before finishing the first series, then this second series ended before the first!

It must be kind of high school, with the theme of bondage and the slave collar on the blanket.

A few years ago, when Digital Manga Publishing was trying to bring in works that weren’t quite self-explanatory (like Project-H) but not fully secure (like everything else), a lot of people pushed hard and hoped. that Nana in Kaoru would get chosen. DMP rather went with … what they went with, shall we say.

I was a big fan of NtK and there is great character development. Ryuuta Amazume ™ ‘s opinions of how male and female relationships should work become frightening in Black (this relationship that Nana and Kaoru witnessed was certainly not healthy, a little messed up, it was presented as such. ), and NtK had a hell of a rush, disappointing ending that really reversed a lot of the positive growth Kaoru has had, but I stand by the series. Kaoru is a good boy, too bad the show isn’t as good as it should be.

Also, yeah: why do an interquel like this? Black was quite odd, considering this was a spin-off where Nana and Kaoru couldn’t do anything they weren’t already doing in the main story. So why do another spin-off where you have the content of two stories that you can’t contradict? Weird.

Does that mean her soft-core hentai? I remember seeing publishers pushing more soft-core story-based hentai series back in the mid-2000s. I still find it strange that it never sparked anyone (whether through moral outcry or controversy), but they also seemed never to be mentioned again.

If I misread FinalVent’s message, it doesn’t matter.

Then again, stranger things happened. Like this Ishuzoku Reviewers series published in Australia (Country of programs banned for encouraging drugs or sexual deviance) but put on hold in America.

I think softcore hentai is a bit too extreme a description for that. I would say it’s closer to the echi side if things go right. There are certainly much more extreme things published by publishers like Seven Seas and Yen Press. Lust Geass, World’s End Harem, and Parallel Paradise come to mind, so I don’t think the actual content stopped it from coming. Maybe it was just a matter of timing

I loved this manga (mostly the original), it’s still at the top of my list of old series that I hope to magically get licensed one day.
