Let’s Talk About Yuri Visual Novels [List of Yuri Visual Novels]

* UPDATE *

It’s not the first time we’ve republished this post, but this time, the list has undergone a MASSIVE update. Around 300 more visual novels have been added to the list, giving us nearly 450 visual novels in total~

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 novels that still no translation group has picked up yet.

We plan to regularly update the list, so keep an eye out for more visual novels to be added! If you find a mistake or feel like there are titles that are missing, do let us know.

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 unless otherwise specified. For some of these VNs, it’d be a stretch to call them yuri visual novels, but they all have some semblance of yuri in them, so you could say that the term still applies.

The visual novels on the list will be broken down into three categories. You can click on which of these you’re looking for and skip ahead to that portion of the list.



First of all, which more or less popular yuri titles have already been fully translated/released?

Mini Yuri News Update – November 2017

Yuri news is coming in quickly these days. Lucky us~

our feelings yuri visual novelFirst up, let’s talk about a very promising looking visual novel, Our Feelings by Vazurea Studio.

Even in its early stages, this one already comes with outstanding music, great art, and a plot that sounds really promising:

Hiyoko and Michiko were on their way home when Hiyoko became the victim of a terrible accident. Upon waking up, Hiyoko found herself in a familiar place, but surrounded by unfamiliar faces. The three girls that were by her side when she awoke, Yukiko, Miyuki, and Aiko, all claimed they were Hiyoko’s best friends at school.

However, Hiyoko didn’t know them at all. Only when she finally looked at the date and took notice of her surroundings, Hiyoko finally realized that she was thrust back three years into the past, when she was still in high school.

Hiyoko chose to be honest, and told them that she had no recollection of any of them. However, she still kept the fact that she was from a parallel-future where she didn’t know any of these girls, a secret.

Hiyoko tried to figure out how she could return to her own world, and why she was sent here in the first place. And who was this girl she replaced? Was it really her, or something far more sinister?

Then suddenly, a new student, Ayano, arrives who throws everything out of balance when Ayano claims that she knows who Hiyoko really is…

Yuri News Update – October 2017

Get ready for a BIIIIIIG news update. And guess what, it’s only about yuri visual novels~

Oayy1E.png

Let’s start right away with what got me most excited this week, Blackberry Honey, Ebi-Hime’s new, NSFW yuri visual novel about maids.

In case you don’t know this one already, here’s the plot summary:

Set in England during the mid-19th century, Blackberry Honey is a tale about maids, music, and unexpected romance.

The story begins when our heroine, Lorina Waugh, is fired from her previous position as a maid in the stately home of Hartwell. With a large family back in Liverpool to support and a string of unsavoury comments circulating about her rather sudden dismissal, Lorina’s search for a new place of employment leads her to Bly.

Forced to work for fourteen hours a day, with little chance to rest, Lorina is bullied by the senior maids and, most embarrassingly of all, by the twelve-year-old daughter of the Lennard family, Lady Constance.

One of the only maids who deigns to speak to Lorina is the mysterious Taohua – but Lorina wishes she wouldn’t. Despite her lowly status, Taohua has her own private bedroom, never goes to church with the rest of the servants, and rarely interacts with anybody. Her aloof, almost cat-like personality, coupled with her peculiar complexion, eyes, and name, have inspired more than a few rumours around the Shropshire countryside that she might be a witch.

Lorina knows she should keep her distance from Taohua, and she wants to most desperately… but maybe there’s a pinch of truth to all the rumours, because she soon finds herself under the older woman’s spell.
