|manga is the worst when it's BORING

Nemureru hana by Ebihara Yuri annoyed me. The co-main character is SUCH a doormat. I love people screwed up by past trauma as much as the next fangirl, but when the trauma causes you to become passive and pathetic in the most boring manner ever? It fails. The people who do bad things to him also failed epically. The other co-main character, who is convinced the doormat is the cause of everything bad ever (okay, not that bad, but close enough) comes off lukewarm. He's not nasty or charismatic or conflicted enough to make me interested. The doormat's fiancee? OMG is she so pointless. What is her problem? I guess she's just a bitch?
I felt the Internet mocking me when I saw Chinese scans of the chapters of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi I don't have today. I hope a new tankobon comes out soon so that I can read the damn thing already.
I really hate how decent tea is turned into tasteless crap by seeping it in the hottest water ever from the big coffee machine's hot water tap. Surely coffee isn't so badly ruined in this manner, is it? Though I suppose searing all flavor out is not a problem if they are using a crap burnt roast already...
