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,

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.

Are there upcoming or old isekais with girls as main characters? manga or anime... or yuri

There is a very great and canon yuri isekai manga from years ago called Stray Little Devil.

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.

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.

Not that I'm complaining but can someone tell me why Female Protag is shipped with Lillie more than the Male Protag

People play Pokemon as a male character? Wait, a male option even exists? Stop making things up, that's crazy.

Anyway, once more it is confirmed that Nintendo does soulless translations that strip out a huge amount of the charm and character their games have in Japanese. I was recently annoyed while playing Alpha Sapphire that the yuri-ish female "Sempai and Kouhai" trainers were instead called "teammates" in English, which does not carry the nuance of the relationship over at all. As said, there's a lot of that kind of hamfisted work.

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.

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.)
