Title: She, Her Camera, and Her Seasons
Genre: Love Triangle, Drama, School Life, Yuri
Description: Akari is a rather poor high school girl who has to work hard after school to help out her family. In her circle of friends she doesn’t really feel like she fits in, as the usual topics of conversation bore her rather than make her want to take part in it. One day, she finds an opportunity to talk to the mysterious Yuki, a member of the photography club, who then pulls her along and shows her a whole other world.
I just recently found this gem among the many awesome yuri manga that are running right now. I guess I’m not a fan of love triangles, especially not if a guy is involved in all of this, though Kano Came managed to pull me in deeply. I can’t help but love the girls’ relationship and root from in front of my laptop screen. So far, this has seriously been an awesome read, and I demand more!
Title: My Ignorance of a World As Yet Unknown
Artist: Momono Moto
Genre: Drama, Mature, Slice of Life, Yuri
Description: Starting a new job is never easy, especially if your adviser likes to order you around, making you work overtime. Though, it also gives you the opportunity to meet someone new, as in Minato’s case, the beautiful and forward girl, Asami. As they rather quickly start out their relationship, Asami knows exactly witch buttons to push to make Minato understand things about herself she never knew were there, showing her just how unsatisfied she had been with her current life.
Momono Mota sure knows what it takes to make an interesting story, though so far, I only thought when it came to one-shots. Whole manga, on the other hand, often felt too depressing and hard to follow, when it came to the characters emotions and especially decisions. This one, however, has been absolutely great so far! I can feel the drama lurking behind the next corner, and I’m pretty sure there will be a twist that most of us won’t be able to see coming. Though, so far, I can’t complain at all!
Title: Her Pet
Genre: Bullying, Romance, Comedy, Drama, Yuri
Description: There had been two major factors playing part in Gayoons decision to apply to this specific high school. Getting away from the bullies that had been tormenting her ever since middle school was one of them, though what was even more important to her, was getting into the same school as the girl she admires. However, as it turns out, she was neither able to get away from her bullies, nor was she able to meet her crush the way she imagined it….
With all the great non-Japanese manga popping up lately, I just had to take a look at this one as well. I’ve only read a few chapters, and I honestly have a problem with this constant display of bullying our main character has to go through. It makes me cringe, though it’s nice to see how she lightens up whenever her senpai is around. I guess I have to continue reading for some more, though so far, despite disliking some specific parts, I’m kind of hooked.
Title: Bloom Into You [Eventually, I Will Become Yours]
Artist: Nakatani Nio [Rireba]
Genre: Romance, School Life, Slice of Life, Yuri
Description: Yuu, a rather ordinary high school freshmen, yearns for an exciting romance to happen to her. Though, even after getting confessed to by one of her male friends, she finds herself not feeling anything exciting at all. After finding out that one of her upperclassman, Nanami, is pretty much famous for turning down admirers from all over the campus for pretty much the same reason, she finds interest in her, which ends in Yuu getting confessed to by Nanami…?!
Oh, how much I loved seeing an original manga by one of my favorite doujin artists, Rireba~. I knew this one would be amazing, and I wasn’t wrong. Though, knowing Rireba’s former works, a mere high school love story will surely not be everything this manga will be about, and this is exactly what might turn out to be the problem in the end. This author is known for very depressing plot developments, and right now, it sure looks like that’s where it’s heading, though I still have my hopes up that it will eventually start looking a little brighter again.
Title: A Kiss and a White Lily
Genre: Comedy, Tsundere, School Life, Yuri
Description:As one of the most talented and honorable student in all of Shiroyuki Academy, Ayaka is only used to being at the very top of everyone in class, especially in terms of grades. Though, she soon realizes that there is someone else in the picture, someone who doesn’t study, sleep through classes and that is the total picture of a lazy student. However this student, namely Yurine, manages to score better in each and every subject, and even in sports. Ayaka declares them to be rivals, setting it her goal to surpass Yurine no matter what. Though, she soon finds out that Yurine might not have been the best rival to pick…
In contrast to all the manga I listed here, this one feels rather refreshing, thanks to it being a romcom, and at great one at that. It doesn’t only focus on the two girls I named in the short description. It actually shows quite a variety of other girls in love as well, and those are the two main selling factors: great comedy and many cute girls in love~
Title: Her Kiss – Infectious Lust
Artist: Kida Miyuki
Genre: Slice of Life, Romance, Yuri
Description: Meeting in a hospital, Sana and Ayane become friends quickly, though Ayane is as quick to make her move, catching Sana totally off guard, which then again creates an awkward atmosphere between the two. This almost leads to them cutting off their relationship right then and there. Luckily however, that’s not where it ends at all…
To be honest, I didn’t much like this one after the first chapters, since I felt like Ayame was rather intimidating and someone from whom I’d usually try to stay away from. Though, as further we get into the story, the more I started to like and even love her. Well, she’s still someone I’d call intimidating, though she seems to be a great lover for shy Ayame, despite the fact that the two sometimes end up having little fights.
