Manga Titles From Tartarus II: Oh, Sundammit... · 12:16pm July 7th

Y'all may be wondering just where I'm getting these from. Answer: I do have an Amazon budget, because I take surveys which pay off in Amazon credit. This allows me to do things like order future Monster Musume volumes so Cerea's story can stay on research track. It also means Amazon's 'we think you'll be a sucker for this too' recommendation engine just keeps chugging along.

However, there's also Right Stuf: a U.S.-based company selling many things from Japan. This includes a lot of anime and manga. I seldom order from them because A. I am not rich, or comfortable, or... B. there ain't no surveys for them and C. no, really: have you seen the price of this stuff? (But check out their upcoming Pinkie Pie statue. Utterly pointless. Completely unaffordable. Beautiful design work.) It takes a major sale for me to even casually browse.

But for some reason, their preorder section runs ahead of Amazon, and does so by several weeks. I can see release dates for items which aren't even being listed on the larger site yet. So every so often, I glance at that to see what's coming out.

This.

I do realize that most of you can't read the title in kanji. We'll get to it. But before we do that, here's the RS description of the contents.

Esuyama Emuko is a twenty-something virgin by choice—in fact, she’s never had a boyfriend in her entire life. Her roommate is a unicorn, a mythical creature known for its attraction to virgins. This unicorn, named Sea Urchin, adores Emuko, but sometimes Emuko wonders what she might be missing by avoiding romantic love. And does Sea Urchin love Emuko a little too much?

Okay. Some of you are trying to reconcile that with the cover. Others are fearing the long-term possibilities, while a few may be planning a crossover and at least one probably just thought But that's every day in the Mature section, so what's your point? Clearly for that person, I have no point to make.

But I did promise you a title.

Unicorns Aren't Horny

When I destroy the entire of the everything, this can be pointed at very nearly the snapping point.

I admire your optimism. (Un)fortunately, there's a reason the higher-ups are denying your requests, and her name is Opera Staccato. (Yes, the one from my username)

But check out their upcoming Pinkie Pie statue. Utterly pointless. Completely unaffordable. Beautiful design work.

My feelings about the whole Kotobukiya line. The photos on Derpibooru are gorgeous, and I'm happy without putting down the cash for the actual statuettes.

And hey, at least that title's more subtle than the one you posted yesterday. (Granted, so is most construction equipment, but still.) And, to my surprise, no one seems to have used it on this site.

Also, I preemptively refuse to write a crossover with Sea Urchin, even if the name fits in just fine in Equestria. Captain Thunderhoof I could work with. This one's as untouchable as his namesake.

...Huh.
...I guess the idea of a unicorn of a virginity-valuing sort in a relationship with someone asexual but not aromantic might be interesting to explore.
Of course, that's if, you know, they don't go a different route with things. Which could still be interesting, of course, depending on how it's handled.
I also wonder just... how do unicorns fit into this world? Are they just around, and everyone treats it as normal? Apparently this unicorn is the human protagonist's roommate; is that, like, "hiding a mythical creature in your room" roommate or "here's her hoofprint on the rental agreement" roommate?
...Well, I don't have the time or especially money to satisfy my curiosity there, but you've certainly raised some questions for me, Estee! ...Thanks? :D

(...Also, why is the unicorn named Sea Urchin? Who named them? Is that a normal sort of name for unicorns in this world?)

If he lived today Rene Descartes would have said
"I am, therefore I am spammed."

What I find ESPECIALLY alarming is the "within X miles of your location" offers
OMG!

They know where I am!

I want to like and add to favorites this post! Why Knighty didn't made posts likeable?!

God dammit. Two words.

Wow, that's almost one of your titles.

I fear that if I ever visited Japan, I would risk the weirdness of the place leaving permanent mental damage.

Yes, an Australian said that...

5302792
Of course they do. When I watch Youtube videos, I regularly get ads for a car dealership I pass by regularly.

5302787 Sea Urchin would work for one of my seaponies, since they're unicorn-based and have hooves while on dry land. Hm...
5302807 Quick story: I just bought a 2015 Nissan Versa Note, but the radio goes black when the outside temperature goes over 80 degrees, so I did a quick curiosity search for a replacement radio about three weeks ago. Now that (censored) radio follows me to every site I visit with ads. All of them.

Japanese here!

... Don't know what to say, really. *shrug*

It's Japan... Very little from there can surprise me... I can just laugh at the insanity and enjoy it.

Sooooo....when we can expect your version of this plot being published here ?

With an extra side of clop, pretty please.

:pinkiehappy:

5302823

It would be anti-clop, because the only story idea I've had so far for that title is 'For the last five hundred years, unicorns have been born with zero sex drive and must resort to artificial means in order to reproduce.'

All the excitement of artificial insemination. Literally.

This title reminds me of a certain story on this very site...

Ohhhhh, so that's what a horny bastard looks like!

Cogito Ergo Spam

... i dunno, I kinda like the idea of a chronic bubbly snuggler named Sea Urchin.

5302844
...okay, that's clever. You get a like.

Actually, Unicorns are as horny as any other tribe. That title is just an observation made by Prince Blueblood since, for some reason, every time he propositions a Unicorn Mare he gets turned down, and the obvious and logical explanation is that Unicorn Mares simply have zero sex drive whatsoever.

There's certainly no other explanation.

5302828
Funny enough, that's how a friend made Pinkie have a baby in one of her stories. Basically, Rarity did a spell on her horn, Pinkie climbed on, and basically rode the horn until magic baby making happened.

When I first looked at the cover, I thought it was someone trying to create a manga style version of "Phoebe and Her Unicorn."

After reading the description and title...

I'm going to keep pretending that.

5302844
No.
"Sum, ergo spam."

5302864
Please Do NOT provide a link for that.
Not now, not ever,

NEVER!

It feels like Fimfiction transcended into a manga.

Are we sure this isn't a Twilight (the sparkly vampires novels) kind of deal, where a fimfiction author decided to use the plot of his/her mlp fanfiction into a manga instead of a novel?

5302882
That's it.

Stupid Latin correspondence course...

5302828
You know there a LOT of clop in thi site involving machines and arrificial insemination, right ?

*attempts a rimshot*

*does a drum solo instead*

Could be worse fates than to get Amazon credit for some surveys. Get too far down the rabbit hole with Amazon and you get Medium articles

5302828
that sounds amazing

5302828
The best clop stories come from artificial insemination tropes. :trollestia:

Consider that in the Estee universe Pinkie is essentially a hornless unicorn.
I'll show myself out.

5302885
I mean, the fic itself is wholesome, its just when I asked how their baby came to be, that's how she explained it, its not really mentioned in the fic

5302828
Joke's on you, I guarantee you that's SOMEBODY'S fetish.

5303052
That's good to know. :raritystarry: You made it sound like
"A total abomination unto the Lord" (in the words of the prophet Jeremiah)

5302849
I am known to have a synapse every now & then.

5302864
So, Pinkie was just Screwing with Rarity's Head? Or does that classify as a Reverse Athena?

I have the first version of the Pinkie statue.

It's gorgeous.

Okay. Some of you are trying to reconcile that with the cover. Others are fearing the long-term possibilities, while a few may be planning a crossover and at least one probably just thought But that's every day in the Mature section, so what's your point?

Hold my beer.

5302828
Can be exciting. Not sexually (for most folks) but "hey, maybe we can have a child now" is exciting.

5303141
Nah, nah fam.

That story actually sounds like a funny premise. It's a 4-koma so just quick setup & punchline comics. I might have to take a look at this when it comes out because apparently no one has fan translated it that I can find.

5302864

Wait, so was the kid actually Rarity and Pinkie's? Because otherwise, if Pinkie just wanted a kid, and needed magic, the first thought would be Twilight...

----

Sorta wanna know where to find these surveys to get some Amazon credit... I think it was linked somewhere before... Ehh. Not a big priority.

5303417

The survey app's main website is here. Just remember that the type of credit you get depends on the app's platform: using the Apple version usually gets you iTunes credit.

5303417
No magic dickery involved, and yes, it was their's. Basically, Pinkie, Spike, and Rarity were in a polyamorous relationship, but, IRRC, Spike and Rarity weren't exactly compatible for babymaking, so Pinkie helped out.

And well, you could look up Amazon Surveys or the like

Reading https://mangakakalot.com/read-si0rm158504884602 it's a rom com about the ups and downs and lives of a couple with hair and back fetish

5302792
