A voluptuous, arrogant older woman and a docile girl become entangled with one another.
Unfortunately, I found this to be very dull. Part of that is probably because of how (intentionally) uneventful it is. But it's also because I don't feel like the characters are very interesting or that there's any meaningful developments in their relationship. The art can be kinda cute, and some people might enjoy the low-stakes fluff, but it's just not doing anything for me personally. Lady Suiren has nice, loosely drawn hair that draws my attention away from feir Picasso breasts. The artist has a semi-sketchy style, with flowy beauty mixed in with some sloppy simplicity. The forehead hairline looks awkward and the eyes feel badly placed--like they're indented or flattened or something. Suiren's snake form is most often drawn far too simplistically, making it look dumb. However, there are several times when the hands and feet are drawn very sensually, with all the proper arches and curves. It's monochromatic, usually using reds or blues. Each chapter consists of a series of brief glimpses into the world. Very mundane happenings. Like listening to birdsong, planting flowers, or eating peaches. Most of the focus is on their dynamic as a couple, on the yearnings, passion, and reciprocated emotions. Sex (or at least heavy petting) is implied to happen, but not shown. We mostly see Suiren nomming on the nape or crook of Suzu's neck. The author definitely has a thing for necks. And for overwhelming jealousy. Suiren is jealous to the point of not wanting anybody else to even look at Suzu. [Reviewed at chapter 10]
