This is just Avenida Brasil: the manga.
>>248122799>Read Josei manga>Get telenovela tier writingSounds about right.
>>248122799Burn the House Down
>>248122799I read the first few chapters but there is no sex? What kind of josei is this?
>>248123406I was just watching a bit of some mexican telenova (i think the name was trifuno de amor) and I literally thought "man this reminds me a lot of mitarai-ke" as i was watching>>248125800i have read like 5 josei and none of them had sex
>>248122799It was ok until the rest stretch, where it goes full retarded>IT WAS ME, I BURNED THE HOUSE DOWN>OH NO NO, SHE'S LYING, I WAS THE ONE WHO BURNED IT>ACHKTUALLY IT WAS I WHO BURNED ITLike that other anon said, telenovela tier writing
>>248125957And in the end no one even gets any punishment, super pointless.
>>248125957Who was it in the end? The lil brother?
>>248125957Yeah, should've stuck with the mother. But that whole bit was pretty funny to me.
>>248122799>young girl has her family ruined by stepmother/dad's lover>tries to get revenge years later by getting hired as a houseworker>hides identity from the male love interest childhood friend who is the son of the woman she is trying to get revenge onIt really is, lmfao
>>248122799Just finished this a few weeks ago and I have to say the last two twists were retarded and honestly almost killed the book in my opinion
>>248125957This, it feels like they forced the book to go on for longer than it needed to.
>>248130823The first one of them is kind of acceptable, sure. But the second one is really goofy and feels tacked on just so they can wrap the story up with a relatively happy ending, to the point of completely rewriting the characterization of the little brother, with 0 foreshadowing.
>>248130939The worst part is it felt pointless too even the big confrontation with the mother where she tells him she'll resent him is pointless since she follows it up with a "that means I'll always be thinking of you ;)". Should have been the Step Mom and have both sons get fucked by the daughters after she got revealed would have been an amazing revenge, she stole their lives so they stole it back
>>248131087>have both sons get fucked by the daughters after she got revealed would have been an amazing revenge, she stole their lives so they stole it backI always thought that's how it's going to end.
>>248131163That was probably what the author was going for until Japanese storytelling happened and the author needed to insert some twists near the end
