We have a fujo thread here in /g/, so I think we need a thread to discuss Yuri (shoujo ai, girls' love~) as well, even though yaoi seems more popular.

Post your favourites animes, mangas, authors and everything related, gurls.

From pink haired Utena to gau gau bears,
Yuri is love. Yuri is life.

I'm gonna start with two of my personal favs: Virgins Empire (pic related) and Bloom Into You.

The art art style is gorgeous and the girls look pretty realistic to me. Lots of couples, funny moments and boobs. When I read this manga's description for the first time I thought I would hate it but it really surpassed my expectations. Some couples are seriously in love and they're not just fooling around. Maka-Maka by the same author is also fantastic (and a bit more grown up).

Bloom Into You has depth too; it's not just another "I saw you for the first time and fell in love with you dokidoki" type of story. A girl falls in love with another who has zero interest in her and makes it clear she will try to win her heart. Cute art style, also.

I don't remember the manga because I grabbed this picture from an old folder, but I remember the mangaka: Morishima Akiko. She only draws girls' love and is pretty popular.

Nope, there are tons of yuri stories that already start yuri without that annoying part

Oops, I know the feeling. Wait until you get to Honoka and the silly bubbly twins.
Also, this is irrelevant, but interesting: the mangaka's art style gets prettier as the story progresses. The lines look a little thicker and bolder in the first chapters, and then start to get more delicate and smooth. Just thought about pointing that out because even though I love the story, what first caught my eye was the art

No. 134716

Hey fam, I don't know jack shit about proper weeb terms for mangas etc but I remember a ton of years ago I tried finding a yuri manga that was "mature" with a legit storyline but all I found was porn.

Like no cute shit just a normal realistic story with women finding love or whatever and some tasteful sex scenes, ya feel me?
So if you have some recommendations within these frames that'd be cool beans

A really cool manga is The Private Report on my lesbian experience with loneliness. Do not let the title scare you.

It's really interesting and not hentai, though one or two chapters show nudity. It's based on the experiences lived by the author, who was basically a depressed NEET in her early 20's. Sadly relatable to many.

I remember some like The Conditions for Paradise, Office Romance: Women's Division, 20-Year-Old Girl x 30-Year-Old Maiden and Wife and Wife.

Happy picture diary (a 4koma) and Magan & Danai are great. Very fun and show couples in their early to mid twenties.

I know many adult oneshots, but well, they're oneshots. If you're interested in shorter stories I can find something for you.

I relate to everyone who read Virgin's Empire and couldn't stop, I even collect the manga now

This is actually my first time posting on this board after lurking for so long. I'm liking that I haven't heard of some of the yuri stuff being mentioned here! Thank you all for the recs, I have a few myself. My yuri friend really likes Kuzu no Honkai at the moment, I've been getting into yuri manhwas like My Joy, Her Pet, Daily Witch, Pulse, and What does the Fox Say (I thought that was such a good title). There's also the slowburn Fluttering Feelings which is on hiatus atm because of the authors illness, but it's still so good I'd rec it anyway.

Also did anyone watch and enjoy that youtube mini series Lily Fever?

Hell, I have the same body type as that cartoon tranny, just more muscular but with more fucked-up curves.
Well, I'm trying to hide it with more muscle, but bleh, muscle just feels like pudge to have.(male, underage, blogposting, derailing)

You're welcome, anon. This manga is truly wonderful and very realistic. I'd suggest to it anyone, not only yuri lovers, since the main topic is her life and struggles with depression, sadness and ED, not lesbianism or even love.

Thanks, anons! Eek, true anon.. Sakura kiss can't even compare to Yurikuma, Jesus…

Talking about Tumblr mentality and shit: how do you feel about het in your yuri? Or bi?
I read It Would be Great if you didn't exist today (Korean webcomic; full color - I recommend it) Dynasty Reader today. Pic related.

A bunch of people are flipping out because one of the readers said "I don't like bisexuals in my yuri" or something along those lines, and they're claiming that as biphobia. I mean… I personally don't like bisexuals in my yuri either and I am bi. Not because I hate bisexuals but because that gives more room for a possible disappointment. Back in the day it was relatively common to see lesbians giving up on love and getting married in manga. That isn't that common anymore but oldfags like me tend to feel that way towards yuri with het/bi, I suppose.

What do you think? Seeing so many people upset and screaming biphobia made me kinda upset since I really don't think that's the case.

I'm real sick of Yuri/shoujo ai written for males of the seinen category though I like serious stories of said category.

A Lollipop or a Bullet is a good example of this which isn't skewed for any particular gendered demographic it's just a dramatic shoujo-ai story.

Also loving Virgins empire whoever recommended it, it's probably the first ecchi manga I've ever liked. It's hard to find any manga regardless of genre that reflects real life scenarios or where the girls actually act like real ones like in these manga.

No. 176052

>>175927
Thanks for the suggestion, anon. I'm going to look for it.

That's true about Virgins Empire. I thought I'd hate it (what attracted me was the art) but no, i think the characters actually behave like girls.

Btw I think the amount of shoujo ai/yuri targeted at women has increased a lot recently. Lots of good stuff on dynasty reader. But unfortunately the few mainstream yuri couples only seem to exist to please men, ugh.

If the link I posted ever gets deleted, look for it.

I should have posted it before, no idea why I didn't. I cried like a fucking baby watching the final chapter. Give it a try. Seriously. I thought I wouldn't like it even know I knew it was really a romance between girls due to the super powers one/they/someone (trying not to spoil too much) but no, I loved it.
I laughed, cried, raged, cried, laughed, smiled. It is wonderful, a beautiful rollercoaster.

Also, on an unrelated note: I am op and originally made this thread in /g/ if I'm not mistaken (k, just checked the original post and I was right lol). Why is it in /ot/ now? I get the thread was never too popular but it was meant to be a *~girl's only~* thing. Not really complaining, more asking, really.
