Because no women are stupid and barbaric enough to actually enjoy, let alone produce, garbage like plotless sex-only works. If you do, you can't even be considered a woman at all. You're probably just a horny teenage boy. /s

For people who actually claim this (who I know in real life): you obviously haven't read any fanfiction. You would not imagine the amount of rape and other horrible shit that female writers come up with.

At the same time, I do think that overall female readers appreciate more story along with their smut (at least I do). That's not to disparage the existence of porn without plot - I definitely appreciated it a lot more when I was younger.

Anyways I didn't really like this.

Maybe the growth will prompt more variety and general audience acceptance to said variety. Yuri needs too step out of the 98% high school setting. What I'm saying is, more manga like Murcielago please.

Well, I was actually thinking of more manga like Yamaji Ebine's work :P A lot of my favorite yuri takes place in high school settings, but overall I'd like to see more adult-oriented yuri about realistic relationships.

I think it's really interesting to get to see how people on the production side of manga view things. That being said, this discussion passed over what I think is probably the most important part of the growing popularity of yuri: society is more accepting.

Now, don't get me wrong. A large part of the appeal still comes from the (male) audience perspective that glorifies pure, innocent schoolgirl flirting; or, obversely, just appreciates lesbian porn. But at the same time, the diversity of the kinds of yuri stories being told has been increasing dramatically. Authors are telling cute, fluffy romance stories, serious adult dramas, and supernatural or sci-fi stories with yuri as a focus.

Moreover, I feel that, in yuri works generally, the fact that the romance is between girls is becoming less and less of a creative conceit or marketing bait, but simply a fact of the stories themselves. I think that, as opposed to previous years, people are able to create characters that feel like they are in genuine relationships. For instance, Bloom Into You could just as easily be a het romance about how Yu has difficulty understanding that she's in love with a guy. But it isn't - and at the same time, the characters' genders inform how they act and feel in a realistic way.

I'm not saying that all yuri stories should be interchangeable with het stories. I'm just saying that I'm glad that yuri stories are becoming more humanized, if that makes sense. That's not due to any particular fandom interests, that's a shift that I think has resulted from society's evolving views on homosexuality.

Shipping never dies!

But seriously though, it's awesome that the mascot of one of the current biggest video game franchises is gay, and not in a sexualized or tokenized way. In my opinion, Blizzard really knocked it out of the park with this one. Even if it means that Widowtracer isn't gonna happen...

However, Pharmercy is far from dead! The guy she's having dinner with is almost certainly her father. He looks like an older guy, and one of the writers confirmed on Twitter that she is not on a date. Also, the TV in the restaurant is showing Canadian hockey, and that plus Pharah's Native skins are leading people to believe that her father is a Canadian Aboriginal. Fun stuff.

The dialogue was great, and really elevated this above mere smut. However, I do wish the artist had drawn their bodies in a more interesting way... Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of boobs, but they really didn't fit the rest of the characters' designs.

Besides that tho, this was kawaii as fuck

You know that someone, somewhere got an F-dom kick out of that last page/expression.

In fact, something inside me is hoping, praying, for a 'The Real Her' moment.

What kind of pervert would derive pleasure from being dominated by a loli (;゚∀゚)

When we finally make contact with aliens, this is the picture we should use to describe the word "sexual"

I don't understand the vocal opposition against futa on this site.

For some reason if there is dick in yuri, it no longer can be considered yuri by majority of people. Yuri=clear lack of dicks in any shape and form.

Unpopular believe: I'm not into futa, but I don't agree with this way of thinking

it's a very cissexist way of thinking and im glad somebody else commented on it

Except futa is rarely, if ever, presented as a transgender. It's fetish material, pretty much solely produced for porn. If there was trans presentation, I'd have a totally different reaction to it.

At best, it's fetishizing trans bodies.

I would agree. That's not to say that futanari manga can't make for really titillating porn, which I'm still a fan of, but it doesn't really ever delve into issues like dysphoria.

Anyways, this manga was alright. Not much to say here. I always see people complaining about futa in the forums, but this site even has het on it, so just don't read it if it's not your cup of tea.

Holy shit guys, everyone shut up because I just had the greatest idea ever.

The Ex-Men. A group of transgender superheroines.

Where's my check, Hollywood?

Transgenderism has nothing to do with biology or anatomy and everything to do with psychology. So those scientists could hold those opinions but they'd be entirely wrong and their training is irrelevant to the subject since transgenderism does not pertain to their field.

Wat. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Causes_of_transsexualism#Biological-based_theories

Also, people: transgender is an adjective, not a noun. There is no such thing as "transgenders".

Good manga btw.

Reika is such a dick.
But not literally, cause you know that dicks are not allowed here.

As a fan of futa, I take offense to that.

Anyways, since so many yuri stories are focused on high school-age characters, there's a tendency for them to make irrational, emotionally-fueled decisions. It's a common criticism I've seen in discussions, but I think that people often misunderstand the way these characters are presented. Teenage characters make rash decisions because that's what teenagers DO. The character doesn't have to make the same decisions you would in order for you to understand and even like them.

Luckily, it seems like people are able to sympathize with both Rui and Reika. Which is great. I just want people to keep my point in mind.

For people who are calling Maki creepy: you are reading this manga, and therefore you are Maki.

Good shit. This series is all about exploring the growth of these characters, and it's got beautiful art to boot. Easily becoming one of my new favorites.

Well, I think you got what I meant. Mangakas just draw a beautiful female character and say "this is/was a boy". The flower is a perfect example. There's nothing in the middle.

I think mangakas have a hard time depicting non-perfect-looking people in general.

As long as people are sharing trans-focused manga, here's one of my favorites: http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/the_flower

I guess I might as well also say that I'm MtF. So I guess people can ask questions if they like.

Also this manga is good.

Also this is my first comment on this website. I think.

But you can never rule out futa! :3
