As someone who's followed the fighting game scene for many years now, this manga is especially entertaining. (I knew themusicman500's video link was going to be the Gandhi match before I even clicked it; I watched it live when it happened, before it became the famous moment it did.) It's an unavoidable truth that the FGC has a lot of undesirable qualities and ugly behavior, and in fact, I'd say that its bad reputation is quite thoroughly justified. Still, that stereotype obviously doesn't represent the totality of fighting game players or fans.

In any case, EVO happens to be going on right now, so it was certainly a perfect time to release it. All it needs is a bit more yuri than it has shown so far. Thanks a lot for this, Yuri Project.

Before reading: "Gyuunyuu Linda and Homuraya have joined forces!? This could be amazing!"
After reading: "Meh. Where's the romance?"

I'm normally the last person to complain about stuff being "too porny", but...yeah. Thanks anyway, Moizac.

Ah look, people who still don't understand that this is an exaggerated, slapstick comedy series. Please stop taking it so seriously.

On the other hand, it's a fact that those who pull the covers off of sleeping people deserve whatever karmic retribution comes their way.

Thanks for your work, Anonymous.

Very much in the classic vein of Mountain Pukuichi: cute, fluffy yuri with a preoccupation on mortality and the inevitability of death. There is nothing "edgy" or dramatic about that, it's something every human must wrestle with at times, and MP is one of my favorite authors for competently mixing those elements into enjoyable stories.

Thank you very much, /u/ scanlations.

This was absolutely wonderful, and the postscript was one of the best parts. I'd dearly love to see more work by Shiduki Michiru.

Thank you very much, 8chan /u/.

Basically Gunsmith Cats but with genuine adults and mutual yuri. I'm going to need about thirty volumes of this, please. No wait, fifty.

Thank you very much as always, Yuri Project.

Mira's hit-or-miss pendulum swings back to "Hit". It was quite good. 1 in 5 times still isn't a very equal relationship, but it's something.

Thank you very much, Yuri-ism.

I liked the fact it acknowledged there was no need for roles separation in their couple.

They can both be mothers, they can both be knight or princess alternatively. Who cares? Not them.

That this doujin did away with the need of "a man" and "a woman" role definitely saved it from being yet another yuri porn.

I agree. I abhor those kinds of rigid roles, and am always happy to see them discarded in favor of genuine, mutual intimacy and support. It certainly went better than expected; I'd argue the only really unnecessary thing was the sempai.

They coulda just said the "Adam" pill makes one of them a futanari for a night.
I hate how little the futanari genre is paid attention to nowadays. --_--

No and no.

Thanks for your efforts, Heavenchai.

It was just fine. Cute, loving, and carefree. Saw this on Pixiv, where it was enjoyable enough already, but thank you for the translation, Motto Yuri.

Wow, this is like, the crackiest possible of Aikatsu crack ...Sora and Mizuki/Mikuru had literally zero interaction ever as far as I can remember, and the tone of this doujin is totally at odds with the franchise.

Also not a fan of the overly loose and colloquial translation, I have to say. Any time you have Japanese schoolgirls swearing constantly, you're doing it wrong.

Perhaps a little sillier than usual with the broom bit,

https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2013/10/why-do-witches-ride-brooms-nsfw/281037/

Read this. It's incredibly enlightening. Also says that Sennou Knife did his or her research on witches.

I maintain that applying hallucinogens to your genitals, irrespective of the method, is a silly idea. :P

Another wonderfully classic work by Senno Knife. Perhaps a little sillier than usual with the broom bit, but excellent as a whole. Thank you very much, Yuri Project.

Nez, forgive me. Please indulge me this one time. I've held back so many times before.

I am a transwoman - and I was one long before millennials and their labels and inquisitional crusades came along. If there's one thing I hate more than anything else, it's the self-righteous and arrogant attitudes of other transwomen I see shrieking on the internet about "YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT ME OR FACE MY NEVERENDING MORAL SUPERIORITY"! There is no humility or self-awareness about the fact that we ARE inferior to real women - yes, I said it. It's a simple fact. We aspire to be, without any chance at actually achieving, what already exists in born womanhood.

Or at least, some of us aspire to it. It seems to me that these days it is more common to see what I see in this thread, which is people stridently demanding that conceptions of womanhood, femininity, and lesbianism conform to whatever they want it to be to suit their own interests, rather than seeking to emulate and guide themselves by the amazing real women that are all around us. They are, and have always been for me, my heroes and role models. There is no one that should love and respect real women more than a transwoman.

Futanari is disgusting. It is a fetish rooted solely in male artists' erasure of female genitals, female pleasure, and the substitution of their own, which they take for granted is superior to anything women could have or feel. This notion, this act, is shockingly chauvinistic: male artists grafting their own male notions about sexual pleasure, their own sexual experiences and desires, onto the body image of women, and declaring it a complete and obvious improvement, a correction of the vulva's inferiority, the female body's lack. Make no mistake, these are the ideas and motivations in which artists create futanari.

However, even non-futanari ecchi is often guilty of this. Let me ask you, have you ever noticed the extent to which vulvae and vulvate pleasure are dismissed, downplayed, and minimized in anime and manga erotic art? Start looking for it, and you'll definitely notice it. One aspect of this is the censorship of Japan's legal system. Incidentally, said censorship in my view is directly, if only partially, responsible for the outpouring of bizarre fetishes Japan's pornography has gestated over the years; if Japan could just look at women's genitals in peace who knows what we might've been spared from.

But I digress. It is in fact simply a common mindset to glorify the penis and dismiss the vulva. Again, I ask you: when was the last time you read a work that dwelled on vulvae and the pleasure potential of them in the same drawn-out, detailed, and worshipful way that futanari does with its beloved penis? I challenge you to think of some.

Anyone who defends futanari is participating in this erasure and dismissal of female pleasure. As I said, many times I've been tempted to give it the denunciation that it deserves, but I've held my tongue, both because I knew what I would say would be divisive, and because I knew I wouldn't be able to say it well. However, I hope I have managed to convey some of what I have felt for many years, which is that it is a blight.

Futanari is not yuri. Not only is it not yuri, it is the very antithesis of yuri, which is a genre - a small and embattled one - that does try, however at times unrealistically or clumsily, to represent and give primacy to the pleasure of women - real women, who have vulvae. Futanari is not trans. In fact, it is the very antithesis of what transwomanhood means to me, which is the celebration and advancement of the interests of the real women I so admire.

VivianGames, you are a toxic individual, the very caricature that our enemies paint of us. As Martian says, YOU are the one attempting to dictate identities here. Learn some humility and appreciation toward what you claim you are, instead of trying to hammer it into your own shape for your own convenience. I don't recognize you as trans, because you aren't trying to be a woman, you're trying to make women into what you demand they be.

There, enough. I've said it at last.

It was fine, but I would've preferred Silent Mole-chan to have been more involved.

Thank you as ever, Lililicious.

Another one of these huh. Too bad. When I first started reading it, the art style struck me as being very early-2000s, a throwback to the beginnings of modern yuri like the ones I always remember from Yuri Tengoku. The plot turned out to be anything but that, though.

Regardless, thank you for your work, Yuri Project.

Hoho, it's finally here, and as filled with potential as the raws I saw long ago led me to believe. Thank you for this, m/u/ge. I look forward to more.

It has yuri or at least heavy subtext I heard - but It is only the first half of the story? So I want to wait till part 2 comes out - it probably ends on a cliffhanger.

That's not the case. The game is a complete story, and while it has multiple endings, some of which are quite sad, the "true end" is quite happy and complete. In fact, you should be able to infer what happens from this doujin. In any case, the game is strongly yuri, and well worth playing on that basis. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Thanks for this release, Motto Yuri.

It's like the author wanted to make a happy smutty story all along

Judging from Gyuunyuu Linda's past content, I would say that's very likely. This might've been her first foray into a longer type of format, and leaning on drama to stretch things out is hardly an uncommon practice.

Anyway, nice that it ended the way that it did - very much in the way I would've expected from GL - although it certainly does feel abrupt. This could definitely use a sequel or afterstory.

Thank you again for your efforts on this, ZdY.

Simply magnificent. Mountain Pukuichi is one of the few authors whose works can temporarily quench even my insatiable thirst for frequent, lengthy embraces and snuggling. This will be another of MP's stories that I will turn to in future when feeling particularly parched. Thank you indeed, Wooberjig.

I feel like the translator note for "sempai" was unnecessary. I've become completely out of touch with non-weebs.

Slightly off-topic: https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/senpai-is-real

Senpai/sempai is close to, but not quite, being accepted into the english language as a loanword.

Little do you know, translation notes for basics like "sempai" or "onee-sama" are a 15+ year old Lililicious release tradition, and it wouldn't feel like a proper one without them.

Anyway, nice to see Kodama doing some more non-soap-opera yuri. Thank you, Lililicious and ZdY both.

Neither of the love interests were in the right. Nagisa is also to blame for mistrusting her lover and for giving up so quickly. Saying "I'm worried you might cheat on me" is disgusting. A baseless, passive-aggressive guilt tripping before the fact. Saying that to someone could only ever make them feel horrible. It was self-centered and undeserved.

Also note how quickly and easily Nagisa was willing to walk out and never look back instead of trying to understand Misaki's pain and calm her fears, empathizing with her in a terrible situation, let alone trying to get to the bottom of what really happened. She just washes her hands of it and leaves. It seems to me she was ever only concerned with her own position in the relationship, and never with Misaki's side of things.

In short, all the people saying they hope Nagisa finds someone else should think about whether they really want some other girl to face that kind of mistrust and self-absorption.

That's not to say I didn't find the story very entertaining, I did. Fairly nice artwork as well. Thank you, Yuri Project.
