>>2364635BEST GIRLS NO COMPETITION
>>2364635>translate what she says on page 23Obviously.
>>2364635Even google can figure that one out OP
>>2364701did not even think of thatthank you for that... ... . now I think i have to run all the raws.
>>2364635Best page in the manga
New translations of best mango when?
I just love that we get a yuri series as long as this. So few others, even the great ones, have time for as many little scenes and moments as this. There are also some very nice friendships in this existing alongside and commenting on the yuri. I suppose the amazing artstyle makes the little moments and looks way more impactful too.
>>2364635>Virgins' EmpireIt's a yuri series about 4chan?
>>2364646Image does not fit the description.
My favorite couple is Yuu/Mari, they have the cutest SM dynamic.I also love Shizuka/Mio, but... all the cheating drama is depressing me.
>>2367639Also my favourite couple. Feels like its been too long to see them alone!
No love for MahiMahi?
>>2367824I love them all. Ai and Chie are among the top yuri pairs ever though.
>>2367824MahiMahi are only good for fishing.
>>2367824I do love them. I think I have a thing for the comedic pairs: I also greatly enjoy Ayano/Miyoshi and Elisha/Honoka.
If Honoka and Elisha don't get together I'm gonna fly into the sun
>>2367878>>2368033I feel the same way
>>2368033Well, one is only there temporarily. I can't see any better ending than a tearful goodbye.
>>2368080>Honoka eventually realizes her feelings for Elisha and learns to love herself>Elisha leaving but promising to visit when she canThat's the best ending I can think of but it's still a little sad. I just hope they get together at some point
>>2368080Honoka moving to America and getting to "start over" having a cool life with Elisha?
We are reaching dangerous levels of lesbianism here
This is my favorite Yuri series. Just the right amount of cute, just the right amount of drama, just the right amount of lewd
>>2368649Not enough Ai and Chie lewd
>>2368484they should fuck already
>>2368484>Miyoshi : say, are you going out with someone right now? >Ayano : no one>Miyoshi : well, do you want to go out with me? >Ayano : ...why not? >process to fuck everything right after by jumping and screaming at herMiyoshi deserves to be bashed in the face.
84 and 85 at DynastyTHANK YOU DR MARIO!!!!!!!!!!
>>2372232Finally, empire expands
>>2372232Positive: Actual gay as hell kiss, fuck yeah.Negative: God damn does the anatomy on the big kiss single-panel page bother the shit out of me, for both of them. Especially sad considering how amazing their close-ups are drawn before and after, which also made it stand out more.Oh well, I won't complain.
>>2372248Think of it as Shizuka's reservations taking away some of the magic of the moment, for her at least. See how she never blushes and she says "I made your heart pound today".
>>2372248Yeah I feel like with Kishi's art style changing, he's been drawing legs shorter than before and the knees very low, which end up looking weird.
>mahimahi on volume cover>no mahimahi chapters yetwhen do these two show up again reeeeeee
>>2370156>>2372232So glad that Onda's getting her own cute girl.
This made me so happy. But at the same time, it's going to be even more painful when THAT happens.
I've been waiting for this chapter. Thanks Dr Mario.I don't know if Yuu and Chie will interact at all, but it'd be awesome to see these couples double date and bond based on their somewhat similar personalities.
>>2376171yes, thanks to DrMario for another chapter!!
>>2378116She's the worst but also the best, I can't complain at all
>>2378116>recharging her batteries with yuriI feel like a number of these characters could work as the focuses of their own manga.
>>2378116Confidence: Restored!I do hope it all works out for her.
http://grandjump.shueisha.co.jp/original/otome/otome157/files/assets/basic-html/page-1.htmlMassages are nice
>>2388569That whole chapter was lewd af in the best possible wayI feel like I must've missed a chapter somewhere though- when did Elisha and Honoka get so close they're practically in girlfriends territory? Looking forward to some kind soul translating and ripping the chapter into saveable images some day.
>>2378353>I feel like a number of these characters could work as the focuses of their own manga.I think that every day.
>>2390199Our beloved autistic couple is back!
>>2390199A decent twins chapter for once? Shocking stuff.Won't complain about more VE either way though!
>>2390199Wait they aren't actually twins right? Are they officially a romantic couple?
SHE CANT KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH IT
>>2390958I have such a love/hate relationship with her
>>2390962I wish she would just pick one cute girl to bully instead of switching between them and breaking hearts.
>>2390477They're been great since they met Yuu and Mari.
How many untranslated chapters are there? Seems like this would be a pretty popular Yuri series to translate.
>>2390994Latest translated chapter is 87, the latest raw chapter is 157
>>2390949Yes, they aren't actually twins. You can see here they have different last names.
>>2391214I forgot how weird their lips and faces looked like in these early ones. Almost a Betty Boop look. Mangaka has improved considerably since then.
>>2391025She is hardly a hero
I don't suppose there's a place I could torrent a batch of these?
>>2392374Dr Mario won't translate beyond what is being released in Germany (maybe because they are translating from german?) and no-one else is taking up the series.Because they're blind, I must suppose.
>>2393739Where's the best place to read the untranslated version?
>>2393746>http://grandjump.shueisha.co.jp/original/otomeNot sure how far back these go,
>>2391070Does it get more graphic over time?
>>2394137Actually it's gotten less graphic over time. Storytelling's better though.
>>2394137it gets more romantic/ sentimental over time.
>>2394137It gets cuter, I ship them so so hard.
>>2394357god! this couple will burst my heart!
>>2394376They are the best couple for me, bestfriends falling in love and slowburn. I'm dying
>>2394638Which chapter was this?
>>2394654Ch 100, not translated though but extremely cute, I was grinning like an idiot the whole time
>>2394736The one OP postedhttps://www.mediafire.com/folder/zq719nicccy54/Virgins'_Empire
>>2394736>Folder containing chapters 62-139:>https://www.mediafire.com/folder/zq719nicccy54/Virgins'_EmpireDuh.
>>2394638>bestfriends falling in love>one best friend falling in love and the other being oblivious to itFTFY
>>2396658Not gonna lie I find that even better
>>2396658>>2397506Well for me the blackhaired one is deeply in love and the other one is oblivious af (forgot their names)
>>2397542It's not like Miyoshi isn't entirely uninterested, she's checked out Ayano's body before a little, but it seems more curiosity than what we've seen come from Ayano, who seems more keen on making a go of it.
>>2364635Did anything happen with this two recently?
>>2397570Miyoshi definitely finds Ayano attractive but I don't think she really thinks about it to hard to her its fun and feels good so whats there to think about, while Ayano is starting to think and wonder if its just to girls with poor boundries playing around or if she actually has feeling for the goof ball.>>2397620Define recently because there was the fairest wheel kiss but it wasn't that recent.
>>2397570Do you remember in what chapter that happened?
>>2397972Really early one...ah here we are.https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/virgins_empire_ch05
>>2398429Wow ok thank you so much, I didn't feel like reading everything again but now I think I will, I totally forgot about that chapter, they need to fuck asap. Also the art changed drastically for the better
Best couples: Chie x Ai, Yuu x Mari and Miyoshi x Ayano
>>2398495How about Honoka x Elisha?
>>2398508It's really good but not as much as the other 3 (for me)
It sucks to only care about two couples, most of the manga is just filler until they appear really. Fuck.
>>2398731I feel the same, someone should make a compilation of each couple or just the more important ones.
>>2398738Ai and Chie time, aw yeah. When are they going to get gropey next is my question.
>>2398738Cute. I liked the punchline.
>>2398738Ahaha, oh Elisha.>>2398485No problem- I get the impression that Miyoshi covers up her affections with the goofing around she does a lot; I wonder if that'll get addressed at some point....Also I quite like his art in general, though yes current art is better than the older.
Kishi Torajiro just tweeted today that Virgins Empire might be getting axed after vol 13.>Whether or not it does get axed depends mostly on the sales of the physical copies in the following months. >The sales are currently not that good and bookstores don't want to give shelf space to books that don't sell well.>Bookstores don't get many copies of Virgins Empire volumes in the first place, so Kishi is asking for people request for them if they are already sold out and you want to buy them.>He says that it'd be difficult to bring each character's storyline to a satisfying closure if the series is ended abruptly, but the axing is not set in stone yet and he believes in the possibility of continuing the series.>The next chapter will be released on Tuesday night next week as usual and vol 12 will be out on the 18th of this month.So I guess now is the right time to put everyone's life savings to buying all the volumes and saving our best couples.
>>2402120>Kishi is asking for people request for them if they are already sold out and you want to buy themHow likely is it that polite and reserved japanese yuri fans would ever walk up to a store clerk and ask for more lesbian schoolgirl manga?
>>2402122Good point, but he also says in a different tweet that nowadays you can fill in request forms in the internet so he probably saw it coming.
>>2402120If it's about bookshops not wanting to sell books that don't move though will buying them online really help? I'd be so sad to see it end
>>2402131While I do think that the sales from bookshops are the greatest factor, buying them online should still help. As long as the publishing firm can get buyers for the physical books, I doubt it matters that much where the sales come from.
>>2402131>will buying them online really helpAt this point it can't hurt to give it more sales any way you can manage. Everyone should pre-order v12. The series has very cheap tanks compared to most other physical yuri. Each tank only costs about $5. With SAL shipping it will only cost about $10. If you were waiting to buy all 12 books in the series now is a good time too. Roughly $80 for all 12.They really should have promoted it more. They should have made a real anime, even a 5 minute short or literally anything else substantial to promote it instead of that wasteful 5 second animation clip they teased us with. And fuck them for talking about axing it without a good ending. What new readers are going to buy it after hearing that? They may as well have canned it on the spot.
>>2402151>Everyone should pre-order v12.I agree. I personally have v1-10 and will be buying 11 and 12 as soon as possible. They really are cheap for tanks.>They really should have promoted it more.Indeed. It's surprising how few people know about it considering that it is a long-running yuri series and easily one of the best written ones. Hopefully Kishi's tweet about the axing gets enough exposure for people to become interested.
Dammit, I keep forgetting to suggest this title on Seven Seas' survey
>>2402156Not only best written, but with amazing art too.
That is rough news. I thought it was somehow still popular, despite being a yuri manga. At least we'll get pic related at some point.
>>2402248My heart exploded
>>2402248I'd say it got a considerable good amount of chapters for something that was just relationships in a school with basically no drama or anything.
>>2402120But just on the 10th volume they wrote it's the number one series ever on Grand Jump for number of accesses. They produced those horrible figures and that very short PV, how can it be on the verge of being axed now. Though I do agree the development of the couples is too slow and all that yaoi is a fucking waste of paper, but it's still one of the best yuri series.
>>2402120Noooooooooooooooo!!!!I guess I should at least buy one volume, even if I just give it away. Does anyone know the most effective place to buy from to bump up the stats that matter in this?
>>240212013 volumes is a pretty good run for a Yuri series. Most seems to top out at 5 or 6 volumes.
>>2402542More like 1-3
>>2402543Sorry, when I said most I meant to say 'most sucessful' ones
>>2402544There's not many that have ended at 5 or 6 volumes. Most successful yuri manga are currently running.
>>2402371If you're in Japan, I think any bookstore that has it is fine. If you live overseas, Amazon jp is probably the best alternative.
>>2402963amazon shipping is ridonk in my experience though.
>>2402964The volumes seem to also be available in honto and Rakuten although I don't know what their shipping is like.
>>2402248Oh my god.
