Forum › Yuri Manga Recommendations

joined Jul 18, 2021

Hello! Was wondering if anyone could recommend any yuri manga series with OLs as main character? I've read the more common ones like Still Sick, Crescent Moon and Doughnuts, Fusoroi No Renri, etc. Also that one by Morishima Akiko, I forgot the title. It can be NSFW or not, but I'd prefer a series to one shots since I want a good, developed story. Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thank you!

I'm assuming the "more common ones" also includes Teiji ni Agaretara?

A suggestion for the food-related yuri series you edited in as I was posting this would be Suito-to!.

Yes I've read Teiji ni Agaretara already. I'll check out Suito-to. Thank you!

  • Yamada to Kase-san is very popular around here.
    • as is the follow-up series, Kase-san
    • Heartwarming, tooth-rotting fluff with the occasional dose of mild angst.

Switch those, Yamada to Kase-san is the sequel.

Whoops, so it is. Thanks for the correction, fixed it.

(I'm quoting SushiKnight on September 14, page 33, I haven't properly figured how forums works so...)

Here's a very delayed reply. Thank you so much for the long post so here's another to you, I'll be cropping your quotes to save space

*VNs

I do enjoy a little of drama! That's a lot of VNs recommendations and I will remember it all, Kindred Spirits on the Roof is the first I plan to play

*mangoes

Here's some thoughts:

I've read Kase-San and it's sequel; I lost Miss Sunflower off my list a good while ago, you reminded me to add it back; By the way you say it's one of your favorite of all time, I'll give another chance to Still Sick, I ended dropping it on chapter 21; I also added to my list some of these that seems more light for my taste... aww man I just have specific taste and can't enjoy everything

I guess I should have mentioned shoujo-ai instead of yuri but it's still too confusing so anyway, sexual lust is always a turn down for me, I wonder what is my problem, better not think too hard about it

And I'm not getting in What The Fuck I'm Reading now o_O, if it's not yuri I really enjoy the Psychological genre, or just melancholic stuff

*doujinshi

You're making me die inside wanting to read some of these, I'll talk a little more about it in the end, and I'm adding Amahima-Sakusaku ~13 Years After

*fanfic

You're right, I can't get some proper recommendation without telling a fandom interest... and I guess I can't say of any, the most exploitable anime I've taken a liking was Hibike Euphonium and K-ON, can't tell of any manga. I did read a good fanfic of Hibike but didn't search for more

If you're interested, AO3 is the best place to go. The search and filter options are very robust.

I didn't know of this site, thanks

...Just don't get into any petty fandom bullshit. The people who read and write fanfic are occasionally very... "passionate" about their preferred configurations of certain relationships of particular characters.

I know exactly what you mean and I've being doing my best to not get in any

I wish I could enjoy Touhou or Love Live as there's an insane amount of fan work of these. I will eventually try to read the Love Live manga as I think it should be way calmer than the anime, I can't take too much brightness and cheeriness. Do tell me if you know of any doujinshi or fanfic that I can read with no context

Again, thanks a lot and sorry for the long delayed reply

Yeah, I'm a bit of a fanatic. I've even been dabbling in Ren'Py to make my own, though I'm a total programming newb and I'm not making a huge effort to learn quickly. It's mostly just for fun.

I've read Kase-San and it's sequel; I lost Miss Sunflower off my list a good while ago, you reminded me to add it back; By the way you say it's one of your favorite of all time, I'll give another chance to Still Sick, I ended dropping it on chapter 21; I also added to my list some of these that seems more light for my taste... aww man I just have specific taste and can't enjoy everything

Don't worry about having very specific taste. My interests were much, much narrower 5 years ago than they are now. Feel free to stick with what you like for as long as you like. Your taste might change over time, or maybe not, and that's fine either way. We all enjoy what we enjoy.

Also don't feel pressured to read something just because it's among someone else's favorites. There's a lot that I really love that just isn't for most people.

...even if I do have impeccable taste. :P

I guess I should have mentioned shoujo-ai instead of yuri but it's still too confusing so anyway, sexual lust is always a turn down for me, I wonder what is my problem, better not think too hard about it

I'll just go ahead and have "the talk" myself so nobody else has to:

Shoujo-ai is a term that was created in the west to separate SFW yuri from NSFW yuri. It's derived from translating "Girls Love" from English to Japanese (a decision I'll never understand) very literally. Basically, "shoujo-ai" doesn't mean in Japan what it means here (it's not even really a term at all), and it's falling out of use. It's not a taboo or anything to say it, but people around here and various places elsewhere use yuri for both SFW and NSFW. Shoujo-ai is still used on a lot of big sites, like MAL, mangadex, etc. simply because that's what was done at the time, is what a lot of people are already familiar with, and it would be a massive pain in the ass to change it. It can still be useful for categorization though, even if it's not a "real" term. Language do be like that.

And seriously, there's zero problem with not liking NSFW stuff. I totally get it.

And I'm not getting in What The Fuck I'm Reading now o_O, if it's not yuri I really enjoy the Psychological genre, or just melancholic stuff

Yeah, I'm not gonna suggest you dip your toe in that right now, if ever. :P
It's not for everyone, and not everything within it is for everyone that wants to read things tagged with it. I just happen to be one of those weird people who enjoys a lot of them for one reason or another.

You're right, I can't get some proper recommendation without telling a fandom interest... and I guess I can't say of any, the most exploitable anime I've taken a liking was Hibike Euphonium and K-ON, can't tell of any manga. I did read a good fanfic of Hibike but didn't search for more

There's probably someone here who can come up with something for those specific series. When I want to read fanfic I generally just browse through things on AO3. The tagging system there is also incredibly robust. It can sometimes be frustrating to find the right combination of tags to include and/or exclude to find exactly what you want, but it's usually not necessary to fiddle around with it much. You'd probably have to do very little for a series like K-ON where people are generally only focused on a handful of characters.

(I myself have a few issues with the way tags are handled, but they're very minor things and fixing them would cause other problems. So that's neither here nor there.)

If you're interested, AO3 is the best place to go. The search and filter options are very robust.

I didn't know of this site, thanks

There's also fanfiction.net and various others, but a lot of people are just migrating to AO3, some sites even choosing to merge into it.

It's run by the Organization for Transformative Works. A non-profit that works to protect creators of fanfiction and other fanworks from having to deal with abusive copyright bullshit, among other things. As far as I've ever been able to tell they're very legit, and the fact that there's an ad-free fanfiction site as good as AO3 is already a blessing.

I wish I could enjoy Touhou or Love Live as there's an insane amount of fan work of these. I will eventually try to read the Love Live manga as I think it should be way calmer than the anime, I can't take too much brightness and cheeriness. Do tell me if you know of any doujinshi or fanfic that I can read with no context

Honestly? I read a lot of doujinshi for things I'm not very familiar with. I've barely watched any of the Love Live anime, but I've read a ton of the doujins and fanfic. Almost all my knowledge of the franchise is second-hand.

Same thing went for Touhou at first, and I think most people that get deep into the Touhou hole get started just by stumbling across something random from the series and asking "what is this from?". You might miss some in-jokes at first, but all-in-all you can just start with anything somewhat related to Touhou and you'll get stuck with it eventually.

TONS of people have discovered the series through the music alone, whether it's the soundtracks or one of the many, many, MANY fan remixes. It's an enormous fandom that you can't avoid stumbling across sooner or later. I think my first experience was one of IOSYS's songs. It was probably Marisa Stole the Precious Thing.

Again, thanks a lot and sorry for the long delayed reply

Don't worry about it. I'm just doing my duty...

Fun fact - even MAL is no longer using it after the recent genres overhaul.

I never go there myself, so that's good to know.

After I went through all 33 pages in this thread and read many of the recommendations, I need more

I've only read a moderate amount of manga so I'm also looking for anything else like anime, visual novel and even fanfiction. What I love is SFW pure and innocent stories, no sexual lust preferably. Some examples:
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/their_story
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/crescent_moon_and_doughnuts
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/accept_my_fist_of_love
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/adachi_and_shimamura
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/out_of_the_blue

I don't see anything wrong with NSFW but it's not for me, I just love some pure yuri to fill the void. Please throw everything you know at me, if you have a list or something to share I would be very happy

Anyone have any recommendations for completed series I can read on dynasty while mangadex is down?

Any reccomendations for old yuri from like the 90s or just has that particular non moe artsyle?

Moonlight garden is pretty good.

Or if you want a series of one-shots Lesbian Vol 2 is decent too

Any yuri good manga/manhwa from the 18th-early-mid 20th century? (preferably series)
I also like if it culminates to something more intimate, so nsfw is fine.
Mangas that I like from this era is The One I Love by Takano Saku & Golden Kamuy (non-yuri)
Manhwas of the kind is Sea of June & Opium

Edit: preferably not porn with a genre setting, a logical plot is the bare minimum

Yuri: Wife and Wife

It's very cute and sweet and I can't think of many things that are more Moe up the butt

Not yuri: Hitoribocchi

Honestly I only read a few chapters after watching the anime, but I can't think of a series to describe "healing" better than Bocchi!

Hi, I need help with finding a specific kind of manga, it’s in the yuri/romance genre but it feels like it’s from a soft shoujo manga (??? I’m not really sure how to describe it but it feels like romance mangas I used to read in 2010)
The storylines are kind of simple and cute, there’s a lot of fluff

Here’s some examples:
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/cotton_candy
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/her_kiss_infectious_lust
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/yamada_to_kase_san
And the classics sasameki koto & octave

Anyways I like these sooo much and I’m dying for more there is practically none I can find

Hanjuku Joshi is a lot like that, except that it's also NSFW. It's lewd, but it's a cute kind of lewd.
