When it comes to visual novels, my knowledge is pretty limited, since I have just not spent that much time on playing many. Of course, part of the reason why I haven’t done so is the fact that there are simply not that many translated visual novels available that trigger my interest, so my knowledge is almost solely limited to yuri VNs.
In this post, I decided to write about my experiences with yuri visual novels, tell you which ones I liked the most, and also name some yuri titles for you that are either already translated or that are being worked on right now. And finally, I would also like to list just a few of the most interesting looking yuri visual nvels that still no translation group has picked up yet.
Please note that by clicking the titles, you’ll get redirected to either the game’s VNDB entry, official website, or in some cases, my own review of the game. Also, the release dates and publishers listed refer to the English translation.
*** UPDATE ***
We’ve added more than 60 more visual novels to the list, as well as listed the publisher, developer, length (according to VNDb), and release date for every entry~
First of all, which more or less popular yuri titles have already been fully translated?
Title: Kaga’s Flower Illness
Pairing: Akagi x Kaga [Kantai Collection]
Genre: Drama, NSFW, Yuri
As always, Nekomura delivers the best Akaga you could ever ask for. I’m actually close to calling this my favorite doujin of all-time, so I think you can see that it’s really amazing~
We’re back with another Akaga release by our favorite Akaga artist Nekomura. This time, the two get married and spent their first night, or more like morning after, together. Sounds promising, huh?
Title: After the Oath
Artist: Nekomura [Sleeper]
Pairing: Akagi x Kaga [Kantai Collection]
Genre: Romance, First Time, Adult

After more than two years, this little list definitely needs an update! When it comes to manga and doujinshi, two years can be quite a huge span of time, which is why a lot of things can happen.
It couldn’t be any more true in my case, which is why a whole lot of things changed from my initial list that I shared with you in 2013. Most of the works I listed back then either changed places or were completely replaced with other works.
However, I will apologize to you in advance. Compared to manga, the amount of doujinshi you’ll find here is going to be quite overwhelming. But, as stated many times already, it’s especially easy for me to get hooked on something when I already know the featured characters. This couldn’t be any more accurate when it comes to stories including sex. I mean, come on, if you ship characters from a show, book or anime, you often can’t help but want to see them take things to the next level.
Well, as I’m saying that, I yet again notice that I might come off as a huge pervert. But oh well, there’s nothing I can do about it, since it’s pretty much the truth anyway.
Enjoy the list and feel free to tell me about your picks as well~
Title: I Love The One Who Eats A Lot!
Pairing: Akagi x Kaga (Kantai Collection)
