I binged Girlfriends when I was less homosexual and felt a strange cognitive dissonance, to go along with that sweet forbidden feeling. Naturally, I went on and binged all the other yuri I could find. Which eventually leads to dynasty-scans (thank you, Yahoo Answers). Good times.
Funny, it was either looking for a crossdresser yaoi manga (reversible because I love dicca's artwork) or it was because Hayate x Blade (before coming here, I was reading it in a escalation site that sadly stopped being active), most likely the latter.
OR it could be because I found a lot of Kagami x Konata stuff here.
Back when Citrus was the only yuri manga I knew about, I was searching for a place to read it. This place was Dynasty Reader, and it became by far my favourite place to read yuri manga. By the time I actually created an account on Dynasty Reader, I already discovered several other manga, one of which, Bloom Into You, still holds the position of my fav manga to this day.
I was working on getting back into anime/manga in general after putting it on hold for some years, when one day I wandered across some of Minase Ruruu's stuff that was really poor quality, so I googled around to find a better version and it led me here.
After I accepted the fact that I love anime lesbians, I googled for any kind of anime with even a bit of yuri content. One thing lead to another and I ended up with a link to the Sasameki Koto manga iirc salty af because it was incomplete.
After checking out different sites for updates, I came across the site again...and I think it was down, then I stumbled across Dynasty's Twitter acc rip. I checked out a few things but wasn't loyal invested yet, still just another manga site. Geez has it really been that long?!
I think I had just finished watching the Kanamemo anime at that time....or was it Candy boy?...then....uh...I think I looked for the manga...?
I noticed there was a forum to shitpost discuss the current chapter and I said 'fuck it! Let's try this "social" thing again'. To share info with the community, to find out what I was missing, to grow as a person, and to dedicate myself to my new hobby.
And that is my backstory...what? Why did it take me this many words when I could've said "googled for lesbian pr0n lolz"? Idk, I felt an inspiration. This brings back memories from when I was still an innocent, excited child who found their passion for the first time! plz don't check my post history
I found this site from the now dead shoujoai.com forum, back when this site still active translating stuffs and doesn't has forum yet. Lurking this place for years and only join because no one else want to stitch Ouji-sama Nante Iranai pages.
It's kind of a long story. It started way back when I stumbled across First Love Sisters vol 1 at a physical bookstore, I snatched it up instantly. I never knew there were such things as lesbian manga. Then vol 2 never came out. Much later I discovered fan scanlations online, so I went looking for the rest of it. That led me to a manga site with a yuri section where I came across a recommendation for Girl Friends. I was hesitant at first, but by the end of the first volume, I couldn't stop. After that and Hanjuku Joshi, I finally ended up at Lililicious where I fell in love with everything they had. And that, since they split several issues with Dynasty, finally led me here. Where I've lurked ever since.
And ended up becoming motivated to become a scanlator.
