Do you have any lesbian OTPs? Shipping?
>Tamen de Gushi
Slice of Life story about a tall lanky girl who falls for a cute blond and tries to ask her out. (Pic related)http://mangafox.me/manga/tamen_de_gushi/
A gyaru falls in love with her new step-sister. The plot gets cringy sometimes, but it has some cute scenes.http://mangakakalot.com/manga/citrus_saburo_uta
A woman in an abusive marriage asks her lesbian admirer to murder her husband and they run away together. Very dark, and the art style is the opposite of moe.http://mangakakalot.com/manga/gunjou
This made the rounds on Twitter today and I thought it was cute.
Kase-san if you want a nice paced, pretty much realistic, drama free but still entertaining and sweet manga. It starts when they're in HS and progresses to their first college year.https://dynasty-scans.com/series/kase_san
Also, Dynasty Reader is the best place for Yuri, hands down.
I looked in the replies but couldn't find a source, sorry! I wish I knew
Kissing Mars! And everything by the same author: Maka-Maka and Virgins Empire.
Morishima Akiko is an actual lesbian mangaka, she has a huge body of work with more mature stories, a few college and high school ones, as well. really gorgeous and versatile style. She did the fairly recent anime, yurikuma. I'm kinda surprised no ones mentioned her yet>https://dynasty-scans.com/authors/morishima_akiko
I've also gotten really into the manga/anime tanakeda, the main girls, a hyperactive small girl and her tall "sukeban" gf are grossly in love and dating (pic related), and the main lazy boy set a life goal to marry his best friend, the big scary looking sweetheart. Its a comedy/slice of life.>http://mangatan.net/chapter/tanakakun_wa_itsumo_kedaruge/chapter_1
This is a slice of life blog comic about the artist and her wife, its very funny and sweet and gorgeously illustrated>https://dynasty-scans.com/series/magandanai
This one isn't necessarily a "yuri manga" but a memoir by the artist. Over years realizing shes a lesbian, struggling with depression, eating disorders, anxiety, self harm, getting fired, etc. Its really tough to read, but one of the best illustrated books of the year. >https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/the_private_report_on_my_lesbian_experience_with_loneliness_ch01
(Obviously buy the books after reading, if you can)
what did she mean by this?
The slice of life one is so so so cute, omg. Make me wish I was in a cute yuri relationship, but I am as straight as one can get kek very adorable nonetheless.
Aaaaa the private report was hella good and really sums up my relationship with sex too (even though I'm a bit younger and not a virgin)
The author reminds me so much of so many of my friends too. I just want to give her a big hug!
Most of y'all probably already know this but Yuru Yuri is a super cute [somewhat] Yuri anime. All the girls are super cute and the little romances make it even better. It's super "fluffy" and cutesy and can be pretty funny at times.
One of my favorite ongoing chinese yuri is Beloved. You should avoid if you find age gap unpleasant. http://belovedmanhua.imgur.com/
Holy shit, what a nice art style! I am hooked!
Hey! There's a new yuri game out on mangagamer called Seabed! :Dhttps://www.mangagamer.com/detail.php?goods_type=1&product_code=1028
You can pre-order it now for $14.96, it's in the mystery genre
I'll probably sound like a faggot, but Steel Angel Kurumi is what made me realize that I was into girls.
sugar wa otoshigor…
My favourite original yuri manga of all time.
It's about a girl who has no ambitions in life so she puts down being a prostitute and sings lots of old love songs. It's easy for me to relate to that kind of dumpiness she has without the prostitute part. Especially when I was younger, awkward, messy hair like a rat's nest too.
She ends up becoming friends with a girl with long dark hair who is academically good but considered the class whore and their friendship starts to becoming romantic.
There's lots of feels about how men treat women and the manga itself was written by a woman.
The only thing that pissed me off is that the scan group dropped it despite only having roughly 3 volumes so I never get to see the end and I can't find scans at the worst part in the story possible.
I think the reason why I like it is because it almost feels like a teen romance movie but with yuri. It lacks the kind of almost artificial squeaky clean cuteness that lots of yuri has.
Anyone else excited for the Kase-san anime?
I'm excited because I read the manga. I'm glad that more yuri like this is being animated that wasn't hot garbage like Sakura Trick (which was cute in it's own way, but fuck that ending)
The song sounds great and the animation looks smooth and it seems leagues better than the NTR bullcrap as well as Citrus.
Yes, and the art looks so great too! Hopefully it will be a hit and we will get even greater stories.
I love this manga so I'll dump a few screenshots for people who might like the same type of story. MC is fucking ridiculous but I know people who are just like that tbh. https://dynasty-scans.com/series/office_romance_womens_division
>tfw probably straight
>no chance to get with a girl
I feel you sis.
I am also straight. I can have a unique bond with a woman with all of this freshness and honestly that I cannot get from a man but even if I try hard, I cannot love women the way I can a man. I believe that because there is no time spent understanding someone as the opposite gender, we have a strong connection right away. She shares the exact same worries and concerns as me and our bodies are the same so we can understand each other on a deeper level and the sex can be better in some ways.
I can fantasize about holding them or having sex but it doesn't stir me the way a man does and I can't just have a relationship with a girl if I'm leading her on and hurting her feelings because of something I cannot be. So I understand why lesbians stay away from straight girls and they have good reason to.
Sometimes I just think it would be great to be bi or lesbian but I accept that I am the way I am even if it's boring and I can only vicariously experience it through reading slash or yuri manga.
>>2092>chart has mawaru penguindrum and aria but not utena or oniisama-e
what is this animu trash
Why is Love Lab considered yuri at all lmao?
All of the girls are into boys, the things they do are for the sake of attracting boys and one has a boyfriend. Sure it has yuri vibes which could be seen as close friendship but if you actually want any yuri, you must become one with that fandom.
So many of these other shows aren't yuri specifically, it's only ever undertones or simply one implied lesbian couple.
Same goes for Hibike, it was the specific choice of the director to make Kumiko's relationship with Reina sensual and remove focus on Shuichi which existed in the novel.
In S2, even when one character confesses their love to the another, this is done as a complete platonic parallel with no romance whatsoever.
I'm happy to lap up yuri bait whenever it's presented but most of these are just wishful thinking on what ifs rather than explicit yuri.
seriously. maria-sama ga miteiru is more yuri than this shit.
this is a bait pic. lets be sincere please.
Slightly ot but is love lab worth watching even if it's not yuri?
Girl Friends is about a girl who falls for the popular gal and their relationship. Cute as fuck, and relatable. Praises femininity a bit, but I think it's part of the aesthetic.http://mangakakalot.com/manga/girl_friends
Yeah it is. Despite not being yuri and actually quite straight it's well animated despite being from a smaller studio. The designs are cute, bouncy, bright and it has many memorable scenes.
I'd rate it a cut above other cute girls doing cute things and it's my favourite of that type not counting K-on.
Here to shill Asagao to Kase-san. It's a very "comfy" OVA with gorgeous backgrounds, clean animation, and it makes me feel like I'm in high school. Great for those of us who easily cry and like to feel nostalgic (or live vicariously through others' high school experiences). It's slow, but it's only an hour long and it's great for setting an atmosphere. Curl up with a blanket and a cup of hot cocoa, and watch this for a cozy little evening.
In case anyone is curious a year later, this comic seems to be a part of a series of unrelated shorts, and that was just a one-off translation (if any more was done it's probably on twitter). Here's a link to the shorts, but they're in japanese and you'll need a pixiv account.https://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=manga&illust_id=68697527
For that one lady on /b/ – do you dislike men on an emotional level? Maybe you're idealizing f/f relationships because if in one, you wouldn't have to deal with guys.
Or maybe you just like the aesthetic of /u/, they tend to be written as slow, sweet romances after all.
How do I even know if I dislike them like you say? All my friends have been guys pretty much. On the other hand I do believe I might be idealizing f/f relationships because rarely I interact with girls my age all my life. I have also noticed that girls kinda dislike me, or for example during my school years I was just like their pet. I have always felt awkward with them. None see me as a potential friend ;_;
Seems pretty weird to me, if you are mainly only attracted to guys physically though I think you are straight. Maybe try reading some manga about female friendship and see if you get the same feeling?
There are a ton of lesbians who love yaoi, I don't really understand it but you like what you like.
What qualifies as manga about female friendship? Because I have read plenty of CGDCT but they are also quite gay. I remember reading this https://dynasty-scans.com/series/the_secret_stairs
but I think I prefer more yuri-ish things. Like, if it's all girls and there is no gay it feels wrong/empty/boring.
I think getting exposed to this shit so early fucked my mind and now it's like an emotional fetish or something. I wish a girl would be willing to have sex with me so I could figure this out, but then it would be like, maybe it feels good because I'm a lonely virgin and any physical stimulation would obviously feel good? I don't know. How do you know if you feel good because you like that person or you feel good because they are just making you feel good. I don't think I would be able to differentiate. Maybe I just should assume I'm bisexual so people don't question when I say I like lesbians.
Maybe something like Love Lab, where they are all straight but the focus is mainly on the girl group. Anyways, maybe bi would be the best label for you. Don't worry too much about having to fit into a certain group.
I enjoyed the anime, one of Dogakobo's best plus fun, great OP/ED and characters Jew a best
, but I drew my line with the manga since the boys played major roles later on and it does piss me off because /u/ turned me into a purityfag. Still a good anime to trigger people with when I don't get triggered first.
>Don't worry too much about having to fit into a certain group.
Yeah I won't, I got tired of overthinking this already. Guess I finally understand that one Tamamusi comic.
can you link this tamamusi comic?
huh, i can relate to this
thanks by the way
I know this is a year old, but I randomly remembered posting this today and went to look for a source. Apparently those pages are all there is, it's an original by doujinshi artist Mikawa Miso.
yuru camp's /u/ is pretty subtle so far.
Has anyone read Murasakiiro no Qualia? It feels kind of like a yuri version of Steins;Gate (though the LN predates S;G) with a Homura-like protagonist who would do anything for the girl she loves.
I reread it after seeing this post. Gaku is great, she's one of my favorite protagonists.
