Wife and Wife (Fu~fu) is the tale of Sumi and Kina, a young lesbian couple who have just recently moved in with each other. The manga follows the pair as they make their heartwarming first steps since taking their relationship to the next level... from what they should call each other, to buying their first bed, and everything in between. Billed as "the loving story of a leisurely life together", the series lives up to this promise by remaining surprisingly angst and drama free.Wife and Wife is a seinenslice of life manga written and illustrated by Hisanari Minamoto. The series began its run in 2009 in the Yuri Hime S magazine and concluded in 2013. The manga shows strong influence by Miyabi Fujiedanote In Chapter 9, we discover that Komugi shops at AQ, from the manga of the same name that Minamoto worked on with Fujieda, with whom Minamoto collaborated on a K-On! yuri doujin earlier.
Author Appeal: The author wanted to read a manga about a yuri couple that were already together and still flirting like crazy, so he made one himself. In an author talk page, he straight out states "I decided to pack it full of stuff I love."
Beta Couple: Hayase and Homugi, who have just moved in together in chapter 5.
The Idiot from Osaka: Subverted with Kina, who, despite having the overall mentality, is not only shown to be rather insightful at times, but can also be quite devious in her knowledge of how to push Sumi's buttons.
Idiot Hair: Kina, as adorably shown when she was moving over to her wife's side of the blanket.
And in the following chapter, we find out why. Cause Kina reminds Arata(That's her name) of a frequent customer that she never had the guts to confess to. Turns out she reminds her of said customer, cause it was Kana.
Pun-Based Title: The phrase 夫婦, pronounced fūfu, means "married couple" (the first kanji by itself means "husband" and the second one by itself means "wife"); the title for this manga is this pronunciation written phonetically in hiragana: ふ～ふnote the use of ～ here is a colloquialism for ー, which indicates a long vowel. It just so happens that if you were to take the kanji meaning "wife" and repeat it twice, the result (婦婦) could be pronounced the same except for the absence of the long vowel (fufu or ふふ); hence, "Wife and Wife".
Written a different way, fufu is also the sound of playful, teasing laughter, such as between bantering lovers.
Really Gets Around: Kana, who would bed pretty much any cute girl in the vicinity on the grounds of "loving them all equally".
