A great recommendation for anyone who likes action, plot (both meanings of the word) & is okay with gore is Murcielago

I'm agree but a fair warning from me : Murcielago get licensied so the scans get trad till volume 8 end. After the end of Vol.8, you must start to buy physicals releases. For the moment we are at vol.10.

Pff. We are at volume 12.

? I'm fairly sure the english release is only at 10 with the 11th coming next week and Japanese is at 14 with the 15th coming next week.

That's why I said we are at volume 12.

Therefore, this is a thread for all of you, who want to hear about the stuff you're looking for. And for people who want to encourage others to read something they may have missed.

Nezchan, I'm not clear on some details.

Are we supposed to recommend anything as long as we think is good? Because in that case the most popular series, like Yuru Yuri or Virgins' Empire, will get the most recommendations -- which will accomplish nothing, as everyone and their uncle has already heard about them. Or am I correct to assume that the idea is to focus on more obscure, less known series?

Also, do we limit the recommendations to series found right now in the Dynasty Reader, and leave out those series that were removed or have never been uploaded? Or is anything fine as long as it's yuri?

Well, the main focus is answering requests for recommendations with stuff you think is great and fits what they're looking for. So I don't know if we'll get constant responses for YY or VE or what have you.

But if you want to post something here out of the blue with a list of things you think are essential reads or whatever, I'm sure someone would appreciate it. After all, not everyone reads everything and it's easy to miss even stuff you think is universally known and loved.

It's fine if you recommend something that's off-site, by the way. Obviously it's easiest for people to find if it's something here, but maybe there's something on MangaDex we don't have, or something like Mage and Demon Queen that's hosted elsewhere. All that is fine, so long as it's not on one of the ripoff sites that we discourage linking to.

Took me a moment to decipher that this is the acronym for "I see what you did there". SMH at myself.

Ok so I'll go ahead and make some recommendations for the naive little lamb who comes to this site for the first time, knowing nothing of yuri manga.

My suggestion is to start with some series by Morishima Akiko! She's widely recognized as one of the best and most representative authors presently active, and you really can't go wrong with her.

If you want to read about schoolgirls (a staple of yuri), try Hanjuku Joshi. A 20-chapter manga series, I've read and reread it more times than I can remember. Find it on the online reader here:

https://dynasty-scans.com/series/hanjuku_joshi

If you want to read about adult women, try Romance Girls File. Or perhaps Office Romance: Women's Division. The former is a volume of short stories, the latter an ongoing series following a group of women who work at the same office (with the main character focus of the story shifting every couple of chapters). Links are as follow:

https://dynasty-scans.com/series/romance_girls_file

https://dynasty-scans.com/series/office_romance_womens_division

Or, of course, if you prefer to see and choose by yourself, just visit her author page on the reader and pick whatever catches your fancy from the dozens of mangas and doujins there:

Hope you have fun! XD

We have so many tags, curious that we don't have a Magical girl one

It sure would have been useful to you

Anyway when I think of Mahou Shoujo the first thing comes to my mind is Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi, which isn't in the Reader for obvious reasons, but anyway if you never read the manga (perhaps you've watched the anime but don't know the manga? many are like that) it's worth looking for it

We do have a Mahou Shoujo tag, but it sometimes isn't applied. Many Nanoha official series don't even have it, but here is the tag.

Hey you're right, I assumed the tag didn't exist cause so many magical girls series don't include it..... even many Nanoha... odd that it isn't used more?

https://dynasty-scans.com/tags/mahou_shounen

Magical boys? Lol, thx for that info, I looked & found some series under that tag that I remember were good and want to read again (not even sure I ever finished some of them, so dis is a good time to do it)

I barely read anything that was released from 2016-2018. Hit me with your best (cute) oneshots and doujins!

@ orange pekoe "Song about a piece of Junk" by Mimoto. This is the one that got me interested in Mimoto-sensei's work. Some chapters are still not scanlated though. Posted in 2016 and 17.

Any comic where both girls are butches? The Tomboy tag usually just gives ones where one girl is "the feminine one" andthe other's "the masculine one"

Hi! anyone know of any good age-gap manga, but where the characters involved are all adults? so like a 20-something with a 30 something or 30 something with a 40 something, or something like that? basically with adults charcaters

Age gap isn't the focus, but it exists and all the characters are adults (if I remember correctly) https://dynasty-scans.com/series/kuroyome

If you count college student as "adult" https://dynasty-scans.com/series/shells_and_alternarock

And then just other ones that fit your criteria:
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/fusoroi_no_renri

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/company_girls

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/everyones_missing_out

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yurigurashi_ch03 (I saw ch.7 recomended but not 3)

And one pair (maybe more, it's been a while) in https://dynasty-scans.com/series/lily_marble

I'm assuming by now you've read "Out of the Blue" if not, I'm going to compound on the recomending cause it's definitely a great read.

I saw someone else recommend "Nicochuu" ( part of the "Love/Death" series on Dynasty) and wanna double recommend it too. Other than those two, here's a couple other's I enjoy

https://dynasty-scans.com/series/fusoroi_no_renri (the "delinquent" character is solid wife goals)

https://dynasty-scans.com/series/watashi_wa_kimi_wo_nakasetai (kinda delinquent, kinda not, but a good read either way)

https://dynasty-scans.com/series/accept_my_fist_of_love

https://dynasty-scans.com/series/a_yuri_manga_between_a_delinquent_and_a_quiet_girl_that_starts_from_a_misunderstanding

https://dynasty-scans.com/series/the_diligent_senpai_and_the_delinquent_kouhai

https://dynasty-scans.com/series/delinquent_girl_and_class_rep

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuri_yuri_elegy_syndrome_ch02 this is the only chapter with delinquent,(except for their short "after" in ch 6) but the whole collection is really good so I recommend just reading it all

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/cigarette_liar I don't know why, but I really really like this one

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/afterschool_girl

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/one_who_depicts_love another personal fav

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/chemical_romance

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/sadako_chan_and_gyaru_yankee_chan super cute

https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/rival_sukeban_prologue goes with

So I'm a lesbian and my best friend is a straight guy. He's really great and we talk about what Fire Emblem characters are thicc and other classy things. It's pretty rare to find a yuri manga that has a straight guy who's best friends with the mc and doesn't try to flirt with her. In Bloom Into You there is Seiji Maki, but he is asexual and therefore not into anybody. I would love a manga that has a guy and girl who both talk about hot chicks and are friends. Is this too niche of a thing to look for?

Their Story isn't actually a manga, but it fits all your criteria. Best friend is a straight dude and they do have all the normal talks and he has zero interest in her.

Then there is also Living with my brother's wife. Whether it will end up with actual yuri is unclear, but the side-characters are very fleshed out and she has male and female friends alike. It's worth checking out even if it's still subtext.

Mage and Demon Queen is a webtoon where the main character is a girl who has a straight guy best friend with zero romantic interest in her and they are a fun duo. The guy also helps her later with a plan to help her confess to her crush, which backfires unfortunately.
