lesbian loli robots
Is there any sort of conflict or violence in this, or is it one of those manga where absolutely nothing happens?
If it's the latter, does Alpha at least ever make use of her robotic vag?
Oh, there it is.
In the picture name.
Now I know where this is from.
absolutely nothing happens. Enjoy your RELAXATION

Neither of them are loli. Are you high? Well the perspective is a little messed up in that page but still...
As for your questions:
Use of robo vag00 is not explicitly implied but what else are two obviously lesbian robots going to do after moving in with each other?
AND BY THE WAY EVERY SECOND THAT YOU HAVE NOT READ YKK IS ANOTHER SECOND OF NOT HAVING EXPERIENCED THE SINGLE GREATEST MANGA IN THE WORLD EVER.
>Neither of them are loli. Are you high?
Looking pretty loli to me.
It's just a dream scene but the fact still stands.
>THE SINGLE GREATEST MANGA IN THE WORLD EVER.
Damn you, /a/. Why do you try and ruin everything that's good.
You're damn straight there's a conflict.
She has to figure out how to eat a persimmon the size of a european country.
Like seriously HOW THE FUCK IS SHE GONNA DO IT?
BITES? THAT SHIT'S NOT GONNA CUT IT.
see this for reference:
/a/ is dead to me now.
Go try trolling Yotsuba as well.
YKK will make you feel empty, then it will fill you with sorrow and let it slowly break down into a sweet liquor of warm satisfaction.
subtitles and divx logos? what a terribly made amv.
So this solves the old riddle. Androids do not, in fact, dream of electric sheep. This is what they dream of.
LATER THAT DAY
Did you know that Philip K. Dick's publishing company actually titled a lot of his books for him? They came up with titles that sounded more "sci-fi" to get more sales.
Can a name be had for lesbian lolis?
what happens? tell me without looking /a/
Anywhere else other than ykk.misago.org where I can download the scanlations? That site won't load for me.
The later chapters are here: http://www.cafealpha.org/ but ykk.misago.org is the only place I know to get the majority of it. Maybe if you ask on the forums they'll upload them at cafealpha.org since it looks like that other site may finally be down for good.
Yeah, Cafe Alpha is where I first looked. Hopefully they will take mercy those like me that haven't read it.
Do you want rapidshares/megauploads of zipped volumes?
fuck yes, you'd be my hero
i forgot anon. i forgot what i was going to sayu.
The entire series, 14 volumes, only seems to be 209mb after rar.
Bearing that in mind, where do you want it uploaded?
Always better so please yes.
anywhere but Badongo. Rapidshare is fine, I guess.
Going to go with Megaupload, or I would have to split it unevenly into 3 downloads, since there's a 100mb limit on most of the sites.
My upload speed is kinda shitty, but I'll put the link into /rs/ when I'm done as well as posting it to this thread if it's still there. Searching for Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou will give you it.
awesome. Thanks anon!
They're already on Mediafire.
It's really slow. My connection is 4mbit down, but I'm only getting 30kb/s up for some reason. 5% done so far and over an hour and a half remaining.
I'll try splitting it into 3 and uploading to Mediafire as well.
Hah nice, that saves me some bandwidth then. Shitty Kangaroonet is shitty.
Well, there you go, whoever requested it.
YKK is epic win.
Fucking faggot author had to pull a Peach-Pit on us and end it with no resolution to anything, though.
I didn't really mind. I read it for the same reason I watched and read Aria. It's nice and relaxed, and isn't heavily plot driven.
Could someone explain to me the point of non-humorous "relaxing" slice of life manga? Besides being aimed at developmentally stunted nerds who lack basic social skills and need to imagine living through a cast of large eyed teenage girls? Seriously, you could get the same experience by GOING OUTSIDE, DOING STUFF AND TALKING TO PEOPLE. I know YKK takes place in a mildly creative post-apocalyptic environment where humanity is slowly dying out with a lot of weird sci-fi shit, but the story rarely focuses on the otherworldly aspects. At least stuff like Yotsuba and Azumanga has lulzy stuff going on sometimes.
Bitter ranting aside, I'm just really fucking curious. The art and writing in YKK are pretty good, but the subject matter just makes no sense to me.
still too young you are little anon. much to learn you have
Yep. Thanks for trying to help anyways.
And =( at shitty Australian internet. Makes me glad I live so close to Microsoft HQ. Internet works great around here.
Dunno, lol. I just read it because I like it. I've never really thought deeply about the "point" of doing so.
Instead of making half-assed Star Wars references which stopped being funny sometime in the 80s, you could try and explain why a mango like YKK would appeal to someone with an active social life.
I know criticizing one of /a/'s "sacred" series is completely wrong and normally considered trolling (unless newfags come up with a wacky and hilarious catchphrase meant to be used during sagebombs), but I honestly don't get the point of this genre. I thought the character's relationships might evolve in some way, but after about 7 volumes there was no character or relationship development to be seen. The art is pretty good, but that's all there is to it.
What is an "iyashikei" anime?
Among the numerous genres and styles of anime - shoujo, shonen, seinen, josei, sports, action, horror, and so forth - exists the unique "iyashikei" genre. The Japanese word "iyashikei," is defined as "healing," or "soothing." Iyashikei anime are frequently referred to as "healing anime," or sometimes "therapeutic anime," but that doesn't mean that iyashikei anime deal with medical topics like Black Jack or Ray. Iyashikei anime are called "therapeutic" because they're the visual equivalent of aromatherapy. Iyashikei anime are calming, cathartic shows that allow viewers to relax and ease away stress and anxiety, leaving the viewer with a mellow, and sometimes nostalgic or melancholy mood.
More difficult than actually defining iyashikei anime is distinguishing what aren't iyashikei anime. Iyashikei anime are typically "slice of life" stories and series about nothing in particular, but not all "slice of life" anime are iyashikei, and shows about nothing in particular that present themselves in a witty or comical way, or particularly attempt to develop strong empathy between viewer and characters aren't iyashikei.
I was hoping you were trolling but since you're not I'll give a serious answer.
YKK is like a really well-written book. It was able to capture the mood and use descriptions in a way I've never seen in a manga before.
The character's are believable and likable. They DO progress and the relationships do change if you pay attention.
There's also a number of interesting themes that are presented in a non obtrusive way. Ashinano doesn't hit you over the head with one clear message, instead you can take away a number of things from reading it.
The art is beautiful.
Most of all, YKK is about the mood - mono no aware, or a beautiful sadness about the transience of life.
TLDR - Even if it's not your favorite genre only jackasses troll YKK.
Spoilers: Humanity dies
Does the manga ever actually focus on that? Do the robot protagonists become an heroes over it? Since I thought this had no plot progression.
and so does...
First of all, thanks for the SERIOUS BUSINESS reply. Second:
>The character's are believable and likable. They DO progress and the relationships do change if you pay attention.
Thing is, it's a bit too slow for my tastes. Maybe I should've been more patient; I didn't really dislike any of the characters, which is saying a lot.
That's fanart, right?
Has anyone explored the fact that since neither is human or can create offspring in after a human fashion that neither is really lesbian? I don't think they're even programmed to be "heterosexual", so they're not even going against any programmed responses. Although Alpha did seem to dig that one guy robot she met.
I don't know if she "dug" him so much as was interested in meeting another robot...and probably the only male, too boot.
Sadly, he doesn't seem to have as vivid an experiance from bonding to machinery as Alpha does.
>>Thing is, it's a bit too slow for my tastes.
I can understand that, it's not for everyone. And yeah that's fanart, not canon at all.
Heh. They're not even lesbians at all, except maybe Kokone. Alpha doesn't show any romantic interest in anybody except perhaps for Takahiro and that can never be anyway.
another manga by ykk author, anyone notice this yet?
