Whoa, this is...extremely...relevant to my interests...adult women, one of them in a position of power as a CEO, and the surprise live-in girlfriend plot thickening...very intrigued to see more. Thank you very much for this, Yuri-ism.

Can't be ntr if there is no love. As far as I can see they are just fuckbuddies.

On page 20, Umi gives the classic "do you want dinner, a bath, or how about me?" line, which is pretty much the most stereotypical welcome-home-honey wifely remark possible in Japanese. That line, all by itself, is more than enough to make clear that they are a couple, and one in a cozily domestic type of relationship.

It's not the content I have a problem with at all; the situation is actually fairly interesting. It's simply that the presentation has been very unfulfilling. Needless to say, the "Jun storyline" has not been laid out in an effective way whatsoever. Still, I am interested to see what Misaki does from here on.

Not sure why people are confused. The premise, such as it is, was clearly explained on page 6. The school nurse is basically functioning as a type of "secret police", empowered by the school board to quietly handle any untoward incidents. The fact she is herself a blazing lesbian and doing it with a student is par for the course. There was nothing supernatural, Saegusa just has a forceful (and somewhat psychotic) personality. As an undesirable element, she was investigated and eliminated by Sensei and her deputy detective Anko.

I was actually really enjoying it until the rough stuff/dubious consent started. Maybe subsequent chapters will improve on that, but if I know anything about multi-chapter ecchi, it's that it tends to escalate with time...we'll see.

Thank you for your efforts, Yuri Project.

I don't care for anthro at all, to put it very mildly, but as we've seen in the past, building furniture together is a great yuri situation that should be utilized more. Thanks for your efforts, Akiba.

I think I'd prefer if Linda went back to drawing fluffycute one-shots instead. Oh well, at least the art is nice. Thanks for your efforts as usual, ZdY.

pg 2, "coord"? I think that's "card"

No, in the show, the dresses the idols wear are always called "coords".

Anyway, reflects a lot of my sentiment about the Ichigo/Mizuki relationship. Early in Aikatsu, they had this kind of seemingly fated relationship; Ichigo, the main character, and Mizuki, the ideal she was chasing after. It certainly seemed then that Ichigo's eventual destiny would be to stand with and by Mizuki as an equal. But the show had other plans for both of them, and that vision was never realized. So this certainly captures some of that bittersweetness. (Although romantically speaking, I still ship Ichigo with Aoi.)

Oldschool

Kneel to the Great Ones. Sailor Moon, Utena, and Marimite are the three great pillars that founded modern yuri as we know it. They begat the Golden Age of Yuri Anime (2004-2009) from which was born Strawberry Panic, Kannazuki no Miko, Mai-hime and many, many others. Let the bells ring forever in memory of their deeds, never forsaken, never forgotten.

On the title page I had to double check that this wasn't an Asagi Ryuu work. All the elements seemed to be there. However, it quickly became clear that one of the most important hallmarks of Asagi's works - the mutual attraction and passion leading into genuine romance - was absent.

Thanks anyway, TTK.

Second chapter was much better than the first. As a long-time fan of Gyuunyuu Linda's earlier works, I'm interested to see more of this serial. Thank you, ZdY.

Amano Shuninta is the cure for what ails us. This is just what was called for, both in the story itself and in her passionate afterword. Thank you very much, Divulge.

Came in here to see what people's reactions were to a Euphonium doujin before I read it myself. I'm glad I did. Thank you to Seiyuuri for translating the afterword as well. That doesn't always happen, but insight into the mindset of the author is always interesting and useful. Especially in this case. With this afterword I know that there is no point in reading the rest of this, because whatever happens in it, the author decided to induce a miscarriage in the last moments. Just like any notion of actual yuri in the show itself, it is stillborn.

The yuribait in Euphonium was an ugly and divisive mistake, and it will be for the best when this particular interlude in yuri history is forgotten.

Wonderful and awesome in every way. Reminds me a lot of Oniyuri-san and Himeyuri-san, obviously a very pleasant association for me.

Of course he is. Yuri Danshi is drawn from his own thoughts and experiences as a male yuri fan, though magnified and exaggerated for comic effect, of course. However, I consider YD to largely be a waste of his great talents, when he could be producing more of the sterling yuri work that he has released in the past.

They are all too narrow-minded in their viewpoint, but if I had to choose, Yutaka had the best attitude. Interested in yuri from a female viewpoint, to more deeply understand female/female attraction from that perspective, but also aware of the important role that sexuality plays in romance and disdainful of the notions of "purity" that continue to haunt the genre. However, there is also nothing wrong with unrealistic wish-fulfillment fantasy, which many female consumers also enjoy. Not everything has to be a soulful, tasteful examination of same-sex romance. The key is balance and breadth of content in the genre as a whole.

Anyway, it goes without saying that this is not itself yuri, however it is valuable reading as a meta-commentary on the industry. For us in the West, insight into the background workings of yuri as a commercial endeavor is very lacking, and I'm always grateful for anything that can shed more light on that aspect of yuri's production and trends. Thank you True Love Scanlations for continuing to work on this.

Hm, it was sort of depressing until the last third, then it became pretty cute. Also, wouldn't this be age gap? Maybe it's just college age/grown woman, but Non definitely has the feeling of being younger. Thanks Yuri Project.

Wow, they actually talked to each other about their thoughts, feelings, and fears. Who would've thought. The chapter was going so well, but messed up at the end by falling back on dumb "comedy" and not kissing for no good reason, too bad. Still, good forward progress in their relationship I guess. Also on the final page where she's pulling the covers up with her left hand, you forgot to draw the ring, Saburouta...

"The Word for World is Yuri"

A truism indeed, as I've known about my own life for many years.

Wonderful from start to golden (or rather platinum) finish. Thank you, Freelancers.

There are a large number of "legit yuri anime", it's merely that most of them are more than 6 years old. This is quite possibly the most significant event in yuri anime since Aoi Hana. As such, it's naturally of profound interest, and possibly profound consequence.

As for how far the anime may go, the end of chapter 20 would be a perfect spot for a final scene.

Wow. Another really wonderful work by Senno Knife. The evocative weather and sense of luxurious isolation were very well-delivered. Thank you very much, Yuri Project.

I will never understand hair straightening. Curly/wavy hair is thicker, more interesting, and wonderfully fluffy. Doing it repeatedly is also very damaging.

cereal commercial

great now all I can think of is Yurika dressed as count chocula

It wasn't quite like that.

Anyway, as always I prefer Kaede/Yurika and Ran/Sora, but this is an interesting take on (and departure from) Yurika's vampire persona in the show.

Uhm... Uh... I don't get it. I haven't watched the anime nor I have the intention to do so, but the two girls at the end are the same person, right? So selfcest?.

This situation does not exist in the show, which is a lighthearted kids' idol anime. In the show, Yurika's vampire persona is not real, it's simply a character that she plays, often with humorous dissonance arising from the difference between the persona and her actual self (such as, for instance, the fact that she loves garlic but can't allow herself to be seen having it in public, as it would clash with her image).

A fun, enthusiastic and thoroughly mutually consensual time was had by all. That's what I like to see. Thank you, Yuri-ism.

The prostitute was very kind to her. Leaving aside the fact that a) it's her job, and b) lesbian prostitutes probably have lots of experience and/or training with handling anxious first-timers, she definitely did her best to make it a pleasant and positive experience beyond just the sexual side of the encounter. It may have been a hopeless effort at the time, but Nagata clearly has feelings of gratitude toward her in retrospect, so that's something. We haven't yet heard her full thoughts on the interlude as a whole, but even from this chapter I'd say she realized some important things about herself from it.

Thank you very much, Tetsu.
