Getting mad at localization is an ages old tradition by people who know a few Japanese words but otherwise don't want to bother actually learning the language.
Also back then there was this conspiracy theory that commiesubs was a "cartel" bringing down other fansub groups (see also: Daiz).

And they're pretty straightforward about it. In their form for applying as a translator, they ask you if you have any experience in fansubbing. Pretty funny if you ask me.

Why is this even a thing? "Sus" sounds stupid while "suspect" is kind of a neat sounding word phonetically. It's in same vein as "fam". Annoying as fuck.

IIn the original they use the word "kyodori" which is slang for "acting strange", "acting suspiciously" and that's why the translator went for another slang word such as sus. You can say it they did it because of the amogus meme, but it's still slang.

Seriously Usagi-chan or Teasing Master Takagi are the same concept but done better without an annoying cunt and a wimpy simp, watch that instead. Pic related is the only appropriate end to this shitshow. Sue me.

Based post. You could describe what I couldn't put into words about this crap. There's just so much shit that I don't know where to begin, and people's overreactions (both in favour and against) are annoying as well. I read the first few chapters, got the gist of it and dropped it, because I knew it was gonna be incredibly repetitive, predictable and boring, especially as a 10+ volume manga. If you don't have a fetish for a tan flatchested bully girl, there's nothing for you in this manga. It shouldn't be that big of a deal.
<<TFW the manga and webcomic take it almost to NTR-hentai levels of abusiveness

Yep, and if you do have such a fetish you're better off with doujins that actually go all the way through.

Nah, he also gets what he deserves because he won't just pull himself together and stand up for himself either.

I mean just look it up in nhentai or e-hentai and you'll have yourself a large set to look through. (The original creator of Nagatoro was a hentai doujin artist first, which is partly why he doesn't reveal his face).

Not sure why people make such a big deal out of people liking it. Yes she's an abusive bitch but sometimes how she sexually teases is pretty sexy and that doesn't require being a masochist.

Like I said someone doesn't need to be a masochist or have issues to like playful seductive behaviour while disliking all that crosses that line going into bullying and general cruelty.

I was speaking in larger context on a specific meaning of teasing not the cruel sort. I'm not saying Id like someone like her. I'm explaining how there are different reasons people like things and was giving an example related to the topic at hand.

Yes. I'm just saying since it's fiction some people can overlook it easily focusing on aspects they do like instead.

But Nagatoro's teasing rarely falls short of actual bullying. She's really just a total cunt most of a time. If you're not an outright masochist there's maybe 10% of the manga actually left for you to enjoy
I mean I haven't read past the first few chapters but she constantly makes Senpai cry, physically hurts him, humiliates him, and it's implied the only reason he puts up with it is because it makes him hard. There's almost nothing that could be interpreted as playful teasing. It's femdom without sex
I guess I see your point if you're talking exclusively about the parts where she shows skin only to blueball him in the end but then why read the abusive bully manga and not just any hentai or romance with an assertive/seductive girl

Ah, ok. Well yeah I agree that simple uncruel teasing is fine and fun.
>ince it's fiction some people can overlook it easily focusing on aspects they do like instead
While true, it feels dirty to me, like watching an ape throw shit at another ape, it's entertaining for a few minutes and then it just gets awful.

There is a difference between teasing and cruelty, a difference between being a quiet kid and a wimp. The entire show is the same thing over and over again for over a hundred chapters, the only character that isn't either a bitch or a wimp is the background character of Class President, and even then she's mostly fan service.

No guy who’s a nerd would not fuck this chick. This is what I don’t like about these animes from japan, is how seemingly “disciplined” these dudes are. Maybe it’s part of Japanese culture and I myself don’t mind some teasing, but this shit is ridiculous.

Exactly, it's funny because of the sheer absurdity of it. These types of manga would be boring if the guy just said "yes" to every girl flashing her tits in front of him. Don't take them too seriously.

It’s not fun when there’s no pay off. Think of the 50 shades movies who’s whole thing is about teasing with a big bdsm pay off and a love story to boot. But that shit ended up sucking because the execution was shit. These kinds of shows with a nerd and a cute girl teasing him is built on the anticipation of a pay off. I think a show that played this tease shit that did it better I was that furry anime, fur stars or some shit. Anyways they played with the teasing shit but it paid off in its unique ways, in a more realistic way. Except for the werewolf shit which I have no idea what that allegory was supposed to be. Either way that show did it better. Nagatoro just seems like a cock tease all the way through, that’s not fun.

>"disciplined"
It's not just that. The oblivious and/or awkward male protagonist who won't make a move on the girl(s) that couldn't make it more obvious that she wants his dick is a cliché that has plagued anime since who knows when. Most of the time they also execute it in a shitty way and it never feels natural, always forced. You often see it in comedy and ecchi.
It's like the otaku-anime industry doesn't know any other way to create sexual tension and comedy.

It took hundreds of chapters to have a single actual break in the samefaced routine, this 'eventually' will get stretched out until the very limits, like Midori Days did, only it won't be any fun.

Mangaka need to eat too, that's why they stretch it as far as possible. Once a manga end you don't know if your next idea could be published or have success.

The author of Nagatoro has a long line of lo*li hentai and several other manga projects.
Even assuming that this was their only source of income, that's still no excuse for garbage character development.

This is exactly the problem with these things because the more you build shit up the higher the expectation and anticipation, eventually being so higher that the pay off could be nothing but a disappointment where you just go: “meh, it was okay”.
