Don’t Know What to Read Next? [Part 12]

a love letter from the marching puppy yuri manga

Title: A Love Letter from the Marching Puppy
Artist: Tamasaki Tama
Genre: Yuri, School Life, Military, Historical
Status: Ongoing (5 Chapters)

After her parents passed away, Shinobu Indou starts learning as a cadet in a military academy. She arrives to the scene looking pretty ragged and thus gets picked on by one of her senpais, Kagami Fujino. However, as soon as she starts paying more attention to her appearance, Kagami suddenly starts acting very, very different towards her, rather trying to help and get close to Shinobu, instead of picking fights.

This one caught me by surprise. You could say the gorgeous art caught my attention, and the story kept me there. Well, the story and Kagami. Their chemistry is rather odd at first, but during the few instances in which Kagami lets her true feelings slip, you just can’t help but fall in love with them. I can’t wait to see how this continues~

so do you want to go out or yuri manga

Title: So, Do You Want to Go Out, Or?
Artist: tmfly.
Genre: Comedy, College, Yuri
Status: Ongoing (3 Chapters)

For as long as she’s known, Miwa’s been into women – and now she’s at university, it might finally be time for her to come out of her straight-passing shell. Of course, that takes a lot of confidence, and coming out is never easy – but could Saeko, her trashy popular weirdo of a friend, give her the help she needs – or just maybe, could the two of them be more alike than Miwa realises…?!

Follow the little awkward story of Miwa and Saeko, as they become friends and then kind of casually decide to start dating. Nothing really works out how it should in the very beginning, but the journey to get to that nice and loving relationship they both want, is both interesting and cute. An easy recommendation~

touma-kun yuri manga

Title: Touma-kun
Artist: Amano Shuninta
Genre: Player, Tomboy, Yuri, Harem
Status: Ongoing (6 Chapters)

All the girls love Touma and Touma loves all the girls. Each and every chapter she picks one of her many admirers and shows them a good time, by doing their hair, as well as doing other things…

Has Amano Shuninta every really failed us? No! So, of course, this one is an unsurprisingly nice read, even if it’s pretty short (so far). We follow the story of player Touma on her journey to make every girl in the school cute, and as simple as this sounds, it’s still both interesting and fun, especially since each and every chapter features a different girl. Let’s see if Touma will settle with one of them in the end~

useless princesses yuri manga ajiichi

Title: Useless Princessess
Artist: Ajiichi
Genre: School Life, Bullying, Comedy, Yuri
Status: Ongoing (7 Chapters)

Fujishiro Nanaki, beautiful and attractive, is a popular girl at school. Her classmate is the plain-looking Kurokawa Kanade.

For Fujishiro Nanaki, who always wants to be cuter than anyone, Kurokawa Kanade’s existence is nothing but an eyesore to her. One day, Fujishiro discovered that her boyfriend has been cheating on her…

This one feels a lot like Girl Friends at times, but it adds some more drama early on, as well as a more complex kind of love story. I’m actually not even sure if we can call this a love story yet, seeing that the two of them started out as bully and victim and now just became friends for some questionable reasons. Seeing how Nanaki gradually starts liking Kanade more, it’s definitely moving into the right direction.

fusoroi no renri

Title: Fusoroi no Renri
Artist: Mikanuji
Genre: Adult Life, Age Gap, Abuse, Yuri
Status: Ongoing (19 Chapters)

Tanaka Iori is a worker for a company that sets unreasonable demands, on top of that she has a penchant for dating married men. What a recipe for disaster! One day she gets drunk with an acquaintance and wakes up the next morning by her side naked! What’s Iori to do?

This is a rather fast-paced story that may put the main focus on the relationship between the two girls but has a lot to tell aside from this, too. I think its main charm is the fact that the story “runs” along at this fast pace, as well as the fact that, for once, we’re dealing with adults and not high school students. I still can’t believe how few bigger stories like that are around, compared to the high school counterpart. Anyway, be prepared to face some chapters that depict abuse. If you’re not ready for this, better pick something else.

touko-san can't take care of the house yuri manga hazuro

Title: Touko-san Can’t Take Care of the House
Artist: Haruzo
Genre: Slice of Life, Comedy, Age Gap, Yuri
Status: Ongoing (2 Chapters)

Since the death of Akari’s mother, her father has started to center his life more and more around his work, to the point where he often doesn’t even come home for days. Leaving for a business trip, he asks one of his colleagues, Touko to live with Akari and keep her company while he’s gone. Unfortunately for Akari however, the one taking care of the other is not Touko. Instead she ends up being an irresponsible person at home, unable to do any house-work, being bad at cooking and a drunkard for the most part. Weirdly though, Akari is not that annoyed by it all…

Let’s be honest here, it’s a pretty absurd story if you think about it, but no matter how absurd it might be, I can’t help but be in love with it. Now add the fact that this is an age gap in which one part of the pair is still under age, and you can find quite a few reasons why you should not pick this one up. But trust me, you might regret it. The story pulled me in pretty quickly, and I guess no matter how drunk and useless around the house Touko might be, I just love her. I might have a problem, I guess I have to admit that… 😛

  1. This feature would be great if you covered manga not on recents at Dynasty (I assume everyone into Yuri reads there) and cover some series not scanlated yet etc. Try using Yurinavi?


    • I would actually love to feature more and have more diversity too, though, I don’t speak Japanese, so this would be pretty hard.
      Our average visitors I would say also don’t speak the language and since this is a post telling people what they might want to try reading next, I think I shouldn’t list anything that’s not in English.
      Though, we’d be very happy to have someone actually list and talk about all the yet untranslated works! 🙂


  2. Thanks Lena! As always, very useful information. I’m always struggling to find something new to read, because I’m very fast reader. It is bad enough with books, but with things like manga it is even worse. So your insight is very appreciated Thanks.

  3. Nice! These are all great choices! 😀

    I’m really enjoying Marching Puppy, can’t wait to see where it goes next with those two! 😛

    And Do You Want to Go Out is interesting in that it’s a bit different (as well as Fusoroi) story-wise. I wonder if it will go the same direction as the one-shot or not? 😉

    • I have a very important question for your shade. It will determine what kind of person you really are, reveal your true face and unfold all your deepest and darkest secrets.
      I hope you’re ready.

      Soooo, who do you like more, Kagami or Shinobu? 😀

      • Oh wow, that is a toughie…hmm, I love that Shinobu has this wonderful naivete tempered by the harsh life she’s led. Then there’s Kagami’s tough outer shell with a soft yuri center. 😀

        From their first encounter together you couldn’t help but chuckle at the back and forth between the two with Kagami’s roughness and the disarming nature of Shinobu. In fact I can’t help but notice how much Kagami resembles Eli form LL (I think I can guess now which of the two you lean towards 😉 ).
        And what a setup from the start:

        Whether Kagami had a relationship with Shinobu’s mom isn’t clear, but I myself kind of doubt it, I think she just had a crush on her, and in a way it carries over to how she feels about Shinobu now.

        I guess it’s the last chapter (5) where Kagami confesses to Shinobu that really speaks to me. Finally all is laid bare and we can see what her intentions are. But it’s only as a result of the capable Shinobu that rises up to save the day for a frightened Kagami…so yeah, I know I am always a sucker for an MC, but still, I will have to go with Shinobu as my fav! 😀

        • This really does say a lot about you shade 😀

          I also wondered if Kagami had a crush on Shinobu’s mom, but I kind of doubt it. The way she just told her she liked her face and then went for a kiss… it was so straightforward and honest, but then again Shinobu probably looks like her mom a lot. This is though…

          Also, “a tough shell with a soft yuri center”… god, I gotta keep that in mind and use it in my final review of it, this is too good 😀

  4. This posts always appear just when I think I’ve read them all, this recommendations are much appreciated!

  5. I’m already following So, Do You Want to Go Out, Or?, Touma-kun and Useless Princesses. While all 3 are great stories I think Useless Princesses nudges ahead for me. Stories of plain ordinary people catching the hearts of beautiful, popular girls has always been a favorite trope for me, maybe because I am so plain myself. 😛 Amano Shuninta’s work is always great stuff and Touma-kun doesnt disappoint. As you said I can’t wait to see what happens with the next girl Touma interacts with, the trippy way things turn out for the girls after they interact with her is always cute.

    Fusoroi no Renri is a story I plan to get into more later but I have skimmed through a few chapters already. Stories involving a women being abused always gets my blood boiling though so I guess I may have to steel myself for that with this one.


    • The abuse in Fusori no Renri is not a constant theme and I think it’s only depicted shortly in like 2 chapters – it’s pretty easy to skip too.

      Though, yeah, it’s tough to read for sure. Whenever I read about stuff like that, I pray that the next chapter will feature said character with their loved one, cuddling and making it all better – for them and for me 😀

    • Same. Marching Puppy has that adventure feeling, while Useless Princesses is just doing some really interesting things with the tropes we all know already. It really challenges its characters. It doesn’t shy away from presenting them with flaws that, but in a way that I can still root for them to become better people. I also just really appreciate yuri romance where the main conflict isn’t just about “but we’re both girls” – fortunately there are more and more stories like that these days.

  6. This is a bit late but I want to thank you for highlighting some of the best new yuri manga of 2018. Useless Princesses hasn’t gotten nearly enough attention, though I’d like to think that it just hasn’t found the right audience yet. Marching Puppy and So, Do You Want to Go Out, Or? are also promising – though they’re fairly early in their development, they are worth keeping an eye on.

  7. Chapter 8 of Useless Princesses came out a week or so ago, and its my favorite chapter so far. It is definitely one of my favorite Yuri mangas that is recently new. Although I do love the manga A Tropical Fish Yearns for Snow. You should check it out if you already haven’t.


  8. Oh, wow! SDYWGO has some really authentically written characters. Thanks for that recommendation!

    I’m also intrigued in the direction Useless Princesses is taking. Very over the top fluffy in a sincere way.
