While we don't host it on the site, Sweet Blue Flowers (Aoi Hana) by Shimura Takako is right up your alley, I think. There's quite a bit of meandering in the plot, but almost all of it is done in service of deep introspection. I would hazard a guess that any of her work would also be of interest to you, but I haven't perused much myself.

I'm looking for any type of yuri medias where the characters are super introspective with their feelings of identity, love, and sexuality. Stuffs like Bloom Into You (I have read the Sayaka LNs, love them), Octave, Crescent Moon and Doughnut, Us Right Now, My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness. Each one of them has something that I love individually too:
- There's too much good stuffs to say about Bloom Into You, but every character has their own moment of introspection, which I love. I have read the Sayaka LNs too, and WOW I love it even more.

The obvious choice would be Adachi and Shimamura, written by the same author as the Sayaka LNs.

I read the manga... does the novel offer more introspection than the manga? Also, I kinda like Sayaka much more than either Adachi or Shimamura lol...

Any good recommendations for yuri involving angst? good stuff that would just. make me bawl my fukin eyes out (preferably something that isn’t about the love interest ending up with another)

Please by Sudou Yumi killed me. I know she has another work named Yume no Hashibashi that has not been translsted, but it's also really sad too.

Oh dang, so that means my recommendation is kinda useless lol. Honestly I haven't found any manga that made me tear up as much as Please, or the way Please makes me cry. Nagata Kabi's works and the Sayaka light novel make me cry quite a bit too, but they're more about being relatable than angst. If you can read manhwa and manhua, Her Tale of Shim Cheong, Getting to Know Grace, Living Will and Soulmates all have some angsty escapism themes that sometimes make me tear up.

Oh and also if you had read Moonlight Garden by MissPM and Kang Unnie, this fanfic actually makes me cry for like 2 days lol: https://archiveofourown.org/works/17409683 (spoiler alert!)
