Hime you gotta ask Akira out or something. Even if she's straight (irl I know like 0 straight trans people) keeping that buried hurts

@TransHomura
Queer sexualities are definitely more common among trans-people compared to cis (which I find pretty interesting), but straight trans-people do definitely exist. I know a few. x)

@sylke thank you so fucking much for the list!!! i'm going to put it to good use. :D

also @nya-chan i see you in the threads for basically every yuri i've read and i don't think i've ever seen you say anything positive... curious what you actually like?

I always have a soft spot for the first yuris I read, like Sasameki Koto and Girl Friends. I wouldn't say they are the best ever, but they make you care for the characters. That's basically my compass.

I read tons of books and manga and my appreciation of what I read is whether I cared for the story or the characters. It's entirely subjective obviously. I rate the manga I read good, forgettable and bad. Actually, there are very few manga I'd call bad, but a lot more I'd call forgettable or a waste of paper/pixels. There's one thing I dislike when I read something is when the author takes their reader for a cretin/horny teenage boy, or obviously didn't put any effort in the plot and just went for the easy path, with a few bells to give the illusion it's not the same old plot.

Ano Kiss, for example, is what I'd call forgettable. It's not bad and the drawing is nice, but I actually couldn't really care about Yurine's or Ayaka's woes, because the ending ware foreordained and their motivations were mundane ("I'm bored", "I want to be acknowledged by my mother"...). The digressions about side characters didn't help.

Giniro no genders is trying very hard to be dramatic and didactic, but it shows its true colors with the focus on the sexual aspect of what it talks about. It begins to veer toward being somewhat "bad" in my opinion.

Citrus could have been something, but the way the author developed Yuzu and Mei killed it. They failed to be attaching characters and actually people started to care more about the side characters, like Matsuri and Harumin.

Most the of comedy yuri is pretty forgettable because the author doesn't want you to take the characters seriously. Mochi au Lait's production is funny, but nothing to write home about. Yuru Yuri is funny, but it will never go anywhere. Kodama Naoko's work start strong, but then just peter out. Tamamusi's works are cute and funny, but it stops there. Even Kase-san, which is really cute, leaves me with feeling of boredom.

It's really hard to keep a manga being good until the end and making unforgettable characters.

When I criticize a manga, it's because it failed at living up to my expectations.

The ones I consider "bad" are usually the ones with too much gratuitous sex and fluids. Even "Happy End" isn't bad. Just disappointing.

Some of my favorites manga (with some yuri in it, because I like non yuri ones too) are:

Sasameki Koto
Hanjuku Joshi (and almost everything by Morishima Akiko)
Prism
Musume no Iede
Bokura no Hentai (though there's no yuri)
My Unrequited Love
Qualia the purple
Takemiya Jin's works (they are tough to love, but they don't leave indifferent)
Amano Shuninta's works (same as above)

And many more..

As for these two new chapters, it's more of the same. We get the tragic backstory of the gay Yukka, the incoming drama because Akira is in love with the sempai who just wants to have fun at the expense of the weirdo, so there will be more angry Hime looking like a potato, etc...

But at the same time, the fact that Hime just took a double take at the waitress and found her "pretty", leaves me hope that she's actually gay and not just Akirasexual, so it leaves a Yukka x Hime couple possible (but I won't keep my hopes high).

I'd rather her and Akira. I dunno straight trans people aren't the norm

That's a sentiment that is often true when it comes to cis/heteronormative societal norms but when it comes to a stance like "sapphic trans women are pretty common" it's actually kind of a shitty (and blatantly false) thing to say.

I personally think Hime and Yukka are a better match for each other. The (very) heated and confused Hime, combined with the coolheaded and rational Yukka. On the other hand, I think the timid and shy Akira might pair well with the outgoing and ditzy yet very kind Taneno pretty well.

I agree. Honestly those pairings are the only ones I really see any sort of real compatibility between.

The thing is, Akira is straight. So it's very unlikely she will pair with Anzu.

Statements of preference at the expense of straight trans people are okay but not at the expense of bi or lesbian ones? Lol.

Well my tastes are the same as Nya-chan, though I'd add a lot of korean mangas that are not on this website.

Good yuri is very rare. But personnally "forgettable" yuri makes me super happy and since it's pretty much forgettable, I can re-read it over and over again. :3

This manga is continuing in the predictable Yukka x Hime route and I'm happy about it :3

As for Akira, let's hope for an happy end ? :D

Not what I said at all but go off.

Agreed, though I think Akira might end up with that soccer guy. Yukka and Hime already have compatibility and they seem to get closer and closer each time they hang out together.

Chapter 16 was really rough. Holy. Girls can be so brutal.

Girls are total brutes when it comes to singling out one of the proverbial herd. When I was a kid, it was the 80s and 90s, in BibleBeltia. Once rumors got going about me being gay--around 13 or so--my already nightmarish school life became just pure Hell. Granted,they were right--I am gay AF--but I didn't realize it myself, then. I had barely any grasp of what it even meant, because of the times and the location. I'd like to think that "these days" it might be a tad bit less horrific for LGBTQ kids because awareness has become more prevalent in the last 20 years, but I don't fool myself into thinking it's any "easier" or that girls aren't just as or MORE catty and horrible as they used to be "back in my day".

Wow bitch-chan strikes again! Yukka is a total catch that girl doesn't know what she's missing out on.

Like man this chapter hit me hard because my high school life was just like Yukka's. first yuri crush is the hardest when you fall for a straight girl.

Let's hope she's still reserved for our lil old Hime
