>>2704577
>>2705194
I don't get it, is this a "lesser evil" thing? One must buy yuri anime, so pick the least bad one?

Honestly I wasn't looking to attack the owner exactly, I've bought plenty of trashy yuri in times gone by. I just think it's strange to for that reply to single out citrus when tachibanakan, ST and SP are right there (admittedly tachibanakan is at least trash by design). I don't get how someone can be fine with those and not citrus unless it has to do with when you were introduced to yuri or something.
>>
>>2706069
Buyfag threads have largely been graced with anons who treat these types of arguments as the inconsequential puffs of smoke that they are. I buy yuri because I love it, isn't that the point of all of this? Anyone who doesn't like seeing yuri get brought into a loving home can go pound sand.
>>
>>2706097
I only get judgmental when people start into the "not yuri" bs. Especially when their recs are crap. I'm looking at you, ajisai planet anon.
>>
>>2706069
It's just supporting what you like. How can you hope for more and better yuri anime if the few yuri anime they make don't sell shit?
And I'll fight you because I like ST and SP. People can have different tastes, as long as people support yuri I don't see the problem, I mean, there is no NTR on that shelf. And Tachibanakan is just an extra with the 7th volume.
And everyone knows how bad citrus is but it's still yuri and yuri is good. Surely, if we had more options we'd be definitely more selective but in the current situation buying one or two series for year (when we're lucky) is not a big deal.

>>2706144
Nobody ever said ajisai planet was the yuriest series ever told. The discussion was only about how, speaking of living together, ajisai planet was just slightly better than doukyo-san or whatever the title was. Both were easily forgettable and nobody would ever suggest any of them to anyone searching for yuri anyway.
>>
I wanted to thank the anon who suggested Koharu biyori some threads ago. I can't belive Kirara keeps getting away with all this gay.
I have some mixed feelings about the mum x teacher pair, the couple is great but meh, married woman and "it's not betrayal if it's between two girls" that sounds so anti-yuri. Other than that all the characters are so deliciously gay and it's fun. I have a new MTK series I want animated.
>>
>>2706377
Shelf owner can do whatever they want with their money, but posing the question "what else should they buy" as if "nothing" isn't an option is silliness. How can you hope for more and better yuri anime if what sells is shit? If you like it, buy it. If you don't like it, don't buy it out of some vague hope that it'll lead to something you actually like being adapted (and adapted well).

>Nobody ever said ajisai planet was the yuriest series ever told.
And nobody's accusing you of making that claim. I'm picking on you because you asserted that it's better than doukyonin and 2DK without really reading the other two, and you threw in a really eyeroll-worthy complaint about 2DK to boot. Also because you're wrong, and it's definitely the worst of the three. Unless you prefer your jokes unfunny and your characters as cardboard and far from human as possible (which I hear is a real preference, so if that is the case then you do you).

It's definitely on the list MTK series I'd like to see animated. It seems like it has a decent chance since it makes lists like pic related.

Spoiler level 2: Black-haired girl is searching for a way to become human again after turning into a vampire while protecting Red riding hood
Spoiler level 3: Red riding hood is a werewolf who was grooming the black-haired girl into a most delicious morsel to vore, but got foiled by her turning into a foul-tasting vampire
Spoiler level 4: They have a pact where Red riding hood helps the other girl find a way to become human again, but gets to eat her once it happens

Wait, isn't this that edgeshit oneshot with the werewolf het rape. Fuck that.
>>
>>2709895
I have no idea what you're talking about but there was 0% het and 0% rape in this chapter.
>>
>>2709896
I remember news that YH picked up that particular oneshot from a SE magazine.
>>
>>2709902
http://www.square-enix.co.jp/magazine/yg/wanted/book/1512/m/akazukin_01/
It has same character and similar setting but detail is quite different so I won’t say it is adoption of this oneshot.
>>
>>2709909
Yeah that was pretty nasty.

Luckily, the fact that in the YH series Red riding hood IS the werewolf already changes the story completely. The whole villager sacrifice thing never even enters the picture.
>>
>>2709909
Few things could endear me less to the origin of a new series than that.
>>
>>2709893
This sounds so awesome

Also, that building
>>
>>2709893
I'm finding it entertainingly over-the-top so far, hoping for a fun ride.

>>2709902
YH didn't pick up the oneshot.
>>
>>2709914
I haven't read it yet but I'm still afraid. Can't it be that Red has been turned into a werewolf because of the rape that will be shown lately in a flashback format? I really can't trust an author that made a "yuri" couple in another magazine just to end up raping it and I don't feel like giving him money. And it's frustrating because it looks really interesting. You can say that a yuri magazine won't go there but it's not like YH never showed "lesbians" fucking men.
>>
>>2710304
Remember Vespa.
I trust the new editor, though.
I have no problem with the author having made that one shot. Sure, it was shit, but it was used for a gross scene and no fetish, which is better than most manga authors using rape can say about their works.
Still, I really hope they don't make that shit here.
>>
>>2710304
Nobody can give you a guarantee that there won't be content you dislike, but you're also not really giving them money if you just read it in YH.

I don't like answering this question, because it involves attempting to guess what another person is looking for when they read yuri. I don't really want to downplay how gay it is, but if you're looking for romance as a central theme, I would look elsewhere. It's a manga about crazy people that happens to have some pretty gay characters, some of whom happen to be dating.

I wonder if 繭、纏う is going to see increased attention from Nakatani mentioning it in the recent yurinavi interview.

I enjoyed the first tank at least, it's delightfully peculiar (and pretty).
>>
>>2712830
I only read the first chapter so far but I liked it quite a bit. It seems to embody the same kind of space as FLOWERS, with the extremely stereotypical traditional girls' school atmosphere dotted with glimpses of reality. I like it but it also always feels somewhat frustrating because I feel like there would be so much potential for stronger, more poignant thematic material if "the real world" were to be allowed to shine more through the veil.

I can almost feel like Youko is a human being based on that first chapter—but not quite, which makes me a lot less emotionally invested. The artwork is mesmerizing though.
>>
>>2712830
Have my copy on the way after reading the free first chapter but I'm really happy to know Nakatani likes it as well. Hair yuri is the best.
>>
>>2712851
I definitely agree it gets in the way of emotional investment and doesn't really resonate, but personally I think that separation kind of works for this one, since there's so much about it that's kind of surreal. Not sure if it'll ever make me cry, but it certainly drew me in and kept me reading.

>>2712864
>Hair yuri
Are there other entries in this genre?
>>
>>2713175
The only thing I can think of right now is the way Yukiko draws Futaribeya, new hairdo's all the time. I must have read other hair yuri before but they were probably oneshots and it will take days for me to sift through the thousand of those that I have read.

This time I want to thank the anon who suggested JK splash. At the beginning I ignored it because of the absurd premise, but then I've been convinced to buy it.

I am that anon, keep doing the great job. I'm always hesitant when there is a new volume 1, because we can't know if it's really worth or not. They should put their series on some kind of reader like Comic Walker. When a new chapter is published on the magazine, post the previous chapter on the reader. When the next chapter come out, post the new one and delete the old one. This way we could easily see if a series is at least subtext or just female cast doing nothing gay.

Houbunsha is really behind with embracing digital distribution methods.

I hope pic related sells enough to continue. It seems like bad news that the author still hasn't been given approval to keep writing it.

By the way, almost everything on the author's pixiv account is yuri, but none of it is tagged as such.

Does the witch get less childish? I read a handful of chapters after it got its extension but got up with one of the characters acting like a four-year-old.
>>
>>2714982
I hope it does well too, it's a very promising start and earned the author enough yuri cred that I can see myself getting behind. I wouldn't turn down a book filled with their pixiv art alone, its so good.

>>
>>2714982
Not even a single work is tagged yuri, this is really something, even the ones who looks romantic.
Makes me believe the author has no plans on making it about love and rather it will always be about MC trying to take care of the witch.

Anyone having payment issues with Honto lately? I just had a second order canceled by them in just a couple months. I've been using Honto for years with the exact same card too. Now とどのつまりの有頂天 and 繭、纏う are backordered so I didn't get to support them in their first weeks which pisses me off slightly, even more annoying because I'm going to end up paying amazon 1300Y to ship those two books due to my impatience and fear of missing them entirely.

Is Amazon shipping still stupidly expensive for occasional dead tree orders? Need to get a few textbooks and figured you shopaholics would be in the know.
>>
>>2718097
Amazon's shipping rates have always been a base price + a fixed price per additional item. In general, that makes them a better deal for larger orders or for heavier items.

You can check their rates here:

Oh, I forget about this then but it has subscription service (300yen/mo) for those want to see one chapter faster than normal releasing schedule. I think not many people use that service though. And it has another 'watch ad to benefit author" feature.

Quick search on Google gave me that only about 13% of internet user in Japan use Adblocker. (2017)

>>
>>2726948
There isn't really any difference. The first story of not-bitter is a Kurogane Kenn's one that end in het and other stories start in het / have het happening in the middle. That's the problem with all the anthologies, there are good stories, bad stories and het stories, it's not different from Eclair. I

>>2727550

So what you're telling me is to get neither?

>Kurogane Kenn's one that end in het
Last place I'd expect to get a dagger in the back from. What happens?
>>
>>2727562
It depends on you. I'm definitely not fine with that kind of stories and I really don't want to give money to people that think this is what yurifags want, but if they see yuri sells there is a little chance they start a serialization for a good yuri series (but there is also the risk they start a series like that absolute shit in dengeki that Nakatani had to promote), in the other hand if they see yuri doesn't sell there is no chance at all to see new series.

The story of Kurogane Kenn takes place minutes before a woman's wedding. Her friend is in love with her but the wedding happens anyway.
>>
>>2727550
>it's not different from Eclair
No, it's actually different from Eclair. In Eclair, everything is equally bland, nothing bad, nothing good, nothing too offensive, and at the end nothing stays with you for more than 5 second. I know it's hard to make a good story with the page limit they have but I had hoped the editor and artists would have put in a little bit more effort. Eclair has a lot of famous authors, but Avalon actually caters to my taste more and if I just want to look at art I might as well just get an artbook from Flyco. Avalon at least tries to stir up some emotions from you.

>>2727587
>but if they see yuri sells there is a little chance they start a serialization for a good yuri series
I haven't read bitter but from my impression of what I have read and the other stuff from girls x gaiden things are actually not as bad as you said. Of course I would want my story to have a happy end, but sometimes story which has bitter and sad ending can still be digestible as long as the girls are the focus. Stories like these are also easier to chew in one shot format, only when they become series then it will be a problem because evidently you will be investing a lot more time in a series and you would expect to be rewarded. At the end of the day I think it still comes to personal preference and tolerance for guys' existence.
>there is also the risk they start a series like that absolute shit in dengeki that Nakatani had to promote
Your worry is redundant here since it already happened.
It's kind of funny how every from girlsxgarden is vanilla while the premise for HakoShoujo is like something straight out of a hentai.
>>
>>2727624
>sometimes story which has bitter and sad ending can still be digestible as long as the girls are the focus
Yuri stories with het resolutions are not yuri. They're a masquerade. They're anti-yuri.
I'd take a million bland one shots in a heartbeat over these sorts of stories that only leave you feeling more jaded and bitter.
>>
>>2727624
I'll fight you, Itou Hachi stories all always good and fun in Eclair, Parfait or whatever. Nakatani's ones also are not that bad, the problem is just that the girls aren't dating but their feelings are clear and there is not het (and it's cute). And in four volumes of Eclair there are actually some good stories.

>girls x gaiden
But I meant actually good series that become a hit like Yagate kimi ni naru. I'm honestly tired of one shots, when they're good they make you want more but there isn't more because it's just one chapter, when they're bad you have lost time and money (and feels). While for series you can completely ignore the bad ones and buy only the good ones so you don't have to support hetshit by buying anthologies with het stories just to read the two-three good stories.

Galette is just too bad, it isn't worth all that money, I'll wait for the tanks of the few series I'm interested in.
>>
>>2747222
The exclusive BDs come with art cards and/or other goodies depending on retailer. Amazon has a nice art card for the 1st. Of course the only other Mira tank is out of print, pretty sure I'd never buy a porn book second-hand. Kase-san BD is still in stock, but the version with the desk calendar from amazon is gone for now. I ended up ordering a 2nd copy of the Sayaka book from Honto because I got scared that I wouldn't get a copy

I don't understand this. You have the box only if you buy all the BD/DVD volumes? It sounds weird to me but I don't know in what other way 全巻購入特典 can be translated.
>>
>>2747605
Yeah I think that's how it works, but I've never bought this stuff before. I think the only way to get it is to get all the BDs, enter the codes on the site, and then use a forwarder's address to claim the reward since I doubt it will work internationally. Just guesswork though, I asked here before and no one seemed to know how it worked.
>>
>>2747634
It seems a very stupid thing. They're making it unnecessarily complicated. Can't they just give the box with the last volume? I'm already mad I missed the Slow Start's box.
Maybe it's better to wait and buy the whole box when it'll be out in the used market?
>>
>>2747774
I'm buying everything primarily because I want the BDs and exclusives anyway, plus I want to give money to Nakatani for a potential season 2. The box from marketplace sellers will probably cost as much as forwarding fees, assuming they let foreigners redeem it. The final box isn't out for another half-year anyway, so I have time to figure it out later.
>>
>>2747799
But you still have to buy the first one now, since there is a serial code they're probably limited.
>>
>>2747774
Looking at their site, I think AmiAmi doesn't require you to enter any code and they'll just ship the box with the last volume if you've ordered all of them by a certain date. But they don't have extra goodies.

Been into yuri for a while, but I only just recently started buying it. Pic related, my purchases so far.

Surprised I’ve never seen anyone on /u/ talk about Mushroom Girls in Love or After Hours.

>inb4 shitrus

>>2748649
I can't speak for Mushroom Girls but After Hours . . . nothing happens. Like there's no conflict or anything. Just two girls start dating. Seems very passive.
>>
>>2748649
Probably because Mushroom Girls is weird and After Hours got boring after the first few chapters. Or more likely because most of /u/ doesn't actually buy anything and there are no scans.

>>2748663

It was certainly talked about before SAD got hit with a cease and desist.

I didn't think so, I was even buying hibana to keep up with it.

>Probably because Mushroom Girls is weird
How? I'm not saying it's amazing by any means, but I thought the premise was interesting, and I liked the character designs. The pacing was really fucky though, it probably would've been better as an actual series.
>>
>>2748649
>Surprised I’ve never seen anyone on /u/ talk about Mushroom Girls in Love or After Hours.
Filthy casual, they’ve both been discussed before, AH significantly more than MGIl though. There’s honestly just not much to say about them. MG was a fun diversion for an hour or two, but the best part was the world building, the yuri was fairly lacklustre.
>>
>>2748663
After Hours did have (stupid) conflict, in particular in the end.

>>2748665
More than boring, the thing that sank the interest was the surprise boyfriend at the end of the first volume, even more useless since it doesn't bring to any drama (and that's a positive thing) and he is never mentioned again so why making her having a boyfriend to begin with?
>>
>>2748920
>he is never mentioned again
What? Yes he is.
>why making her having a boyfriend to begin with?
Because the situation told the reader quite a bit about her character and the headspace she was in at the time.
>>
>>2747035
>ミウ -skeleton in the closet-
Just finished reading it and I can confirm that it is yuri. By the end, their relationship reaches the more than friends, less than lovers level and I wouldn't be surprised if the author's approach to yuri was influenced by Urasekai Picnic. It's an interesting read and I would recommend.

This is my list for november, am I forgetting something?
I see Kase-san's version with the desktop calendar is already out of stock, any chance it will come back?
For Yagakimi's novel I have some problems: in the item's page there is no "add to cart" option so I thought it was out of stock (it will come back shortly, right?), but if I add it to my wishlist I can add it to the cart from there but when I check out it won't ship it abroad, why is it?
Also 飴色紅茶館歓談 is delayed again to march 2019.
>>
>>2757412
Looks like you are getting the same >>2747035 as I am for the most part. I see I didn't list アタシのセンパイ but I did end up buying that earlier because it looked good.

>Yagakimi's novel
You're adding a 3rd party merchant listing to your cart. Amazon's out of stock for real this time, so until they get a reprint it may not come back. I've seen a few yuri sell out quick and not get a reprint for over a month, or in some cases never at all, but I'd be shocked if this didn't get a quick reprint while the popularity is up. I panicked and bought it twice. I only have a few yuri novels but the format of this one is so tiny. It's like a pocket notebook. Also looks like the next issue of Dengeki will be another yagakimi cover issue with a clear file. I know I'll be buying that immediately.

>飴色紅茶館歓談 is delayed again to march 2019.

Huh, amazon description looks like normal dengeki bunko size. I hope it's not actually smaller, that's always a bit of an eyesore on the shelf.

The novel is about 3/4ths the size of the new smaller YH tank in every dimension. I was hoping for a long read but the size explains how the book manages to count in at 228 pages. The only yuri book I have that's smaller than this is the yagakimi calendar book.

The art is fly, but writing is Takeoka Hazuki.

I was curious enough to get the issue of Rex (I'm not going to rip it), and was pretty impressed by the 1st chapter, but I'll follow it in the tanks.
>>
>>2759468
>Takeoka Hazuki
He wrote a bunch of het harems. So, it looks like my assumption about it being bad is correct.

I don't know, you read it. How obvious was the first chapter in that it was just going to be a bunch of love triangle and/or harem stuff?
>>
>>2759480
It seems to be a love story just between the protag and Aoi. Protag's 2 friends are established as straight. The other 2 just seem to be there to be Aoi's plain friends.

I've not read Takeoka's work but she seems to be more a romance writer than a harem writer.
>>
>>2759493
His most long running series, Masamune-kun no Revenge, is a pretty cut and dry harem. And of his two other short series one of them is a harem.

I'd buy it solely for the pretty clear file since I like Namori's art and I've enjoyed having them to organize loose papers. I wish it was easier to know when magazines had extras because I find myself fond of these yuri themed extras. Also I like the color art and color pages which sadly always seem to be cut from the tank releases. While buying the magazine does support every series in it just a little bit, I believe the primary metric that magazines look for when determining a series's value is found via reader polls and tank sales. Buying the magazine won't really help a single series out especially when it is irredeemable shit like the aforementioned.

Hey Nee-sans, I'm planning on going to Tokyo early next year for a trip, any places that I should go to to pick up yuri stuff?

Use one of those lesbian escort sites to get your very own Yuri experience.

>>2760910
There are all three yuri-bu bookstores in Akibahara and Ikebukuro. (It's one or two stalls of yuri and cgdct mangas though)

Animate Akihabara, Gamers Akihabara (Main), Shosen Akihabara (Main)

Animate Ikebukuro (Main), Gamers Ikebukuro, Horindo Ikebukuro

It may not the biggest but three are near each other.

You'll also want to visit Melonbooks and Toranoana for doujinshi and they each have branches in Akihabara and Ikebukuro

Other than books, DVD-BDs and CDs of anime can be found in said bookstores. Figures can be found in them too. There are second-hand shops like book-off near this places also.

In addition to what the other neesan said, Tora A has a decent cross-publisher yuri section (not just doujinshi!) and though comic ZIN doesn't have all the commercial yuri in one place it's very excellent and has plenty of doujinshi as well.

Tora B also has a tiny yuri tank section -- not really worth browsing but worth checking out if you're looking for something specific that's gone from other stores. Don't miss Tora C either, it has plenty of yuri doujinshi.

I think KBOOKS actually had a cross-publisher yuri section as well, but it's been a couple years since I poked my nose in there (the new one is so bright and bustling, ugh) so I could be misremembering.

Lashinbang and mandarake can be good for used stuff, depends what you're looking for.

Depends what you mean by yuri figure. There's explicit stuff like this one from Native. I believe I saw a koihime musou one at some point as well.
For subtexty stuff there's that one MadoHomu one by Amakuni, but for some reason they made it less gay the original GK it was based off of. The Eilanya one with tail holding I'd count too.
I don't think you'll find kisses anywhere though. Maybe some obscure GKs.

Someone with a pre-order who had a declined payment is usually the reason for these small restocks. It gets held for a week until their order was automatically canceled and then it goes back into inventory after some time. Sorry you can't get it now, but hopefully it goes to one of /u/.

/u/ I foolishly imported a phone case only to have it arrive and that's when realized I have no idea how it works.

It looks like a part of it snaps off so you can take the phone out of the case for pictures? But I honestly have no idea. Wouldn't it be strange if you couldn't though? I mean 90% of phones have front-facing cameras right?

You just slide it upwards to be able to take pictures with the rear camera. Just put your phone on the sticky bit and you'll figure it out! I've got a Slow Start case that works the same way.

So you need the four serial codes, one for each volume, enter them on a site and they will ship the box ONLY in Japan.
So you have to pay for two more shipments (Japan-Japan and Japan-abroad) when they could just simply ship it together with the last volume for a simple box that will cost 9340 yen. I hate this. Only two weeks left and I still don't know what to do. What if one of the four volumes goes out of stock before I could buy it?

There is also the possibility they will release the full box later, I saw the BDBOX of BanG Dream! has just been released, but obviously they won't say it now so if you don't buy it now you may be left without it.
>>
>>2767270
>BDBOX
The ones that get released later are physically smaller, condensed versions. It wouldn't be the same physical box as the initial release.
>>
>>2767270
I think of this way: I'm buying the BDs anyway, and the limited editions are only like $25 more. I still get the limited edition's extras which are practically worth it for me anyway, plus I get a special box with Nakatani's art all over it for just a little more. Shipping within Japan will probably be free but if it isn't it will be close to it, and the forwarder will probably be about $20. I can happily live with that. I can't say I'd be happy living with the knowledge that I chose to miss out on buying the best version of one of my favorite things in the world.
>>
>>2767447
The only extra of the limited edition that is not in the regular is a A3 poster (and the serial code for the box), right?

Also what is the better forwarder? I've only used Tenso for used stuff from Amazon and everytime the shipping (plus the consolidation of the packages) is around 100 €.
>>
>>2767462
I've used BigInJapan a couple times. EMS shipping rates are posted on japan's postal site so that isn't going to change between forwarders. This forwarder charges a flat 500 yen fee per package. I don't remember what other forwarders charge but I think this one is the cheapest I found at the time for what I needed.
>>
>>2767462
Oh, and the limited edition for 1 only has the artwork and the code, at least that's all they announced. I have a few amazon exclusives and they generally put the extra(s) and the main item in a sealed bag together.
>>
>>2767488
>so that isn't going to change between forwarders

I'm curious if anyone has favorite surprises (or just plain favorites) they bought this year, or are hoping to buy soon. It is impossible for me to pick even two handfuls of favorites with all the new series, new anthologies, new yuri anime, and all the merch that comes with it. I love it all.

Looking forward to next year, I'm really excited to see how Lilium Terrarium's color printing will turn out. Namori's second art book, too. I hope 2019 is going to be the year Chatting at the Amber Teahouse's reprint is actually reprinted. I'm sad to see AnoKiss end, but I will buy that limited edition final volume with all my heart.

I'll wait the next chapter before buying this. I don't think it'll go het but I have no idea where it's going.

I enjoyed very much the first volume of Urasekai picnic (manga), more for the story than for the yuri.
Yoru to umi gave me Nettaigyo's vibes.
And Saji-chan no yami nikki.

I liked Writer x writer enough so bought that.

I'm afraid that it will be somewhat disappointing yuri-wise. There is delicious scene but romance is not a focus of series.

>favorite surprises (or just plain favorites)
I'm surprised by and happy with the general increase in shakaijin and moody josei stuff, can't really pick any specific faves.

I don't get the hate, I love it. But I like dumbass-centric comedy.

>Yoru to umi gave me Nettaigyo's vibes.

>>
>>2775022
>できそこないの姫君たち 1
I tried to like it, but this is one of the rare yuri manga that doesn't click for me. The same with seifuku no vampiress lord. There's yuri, it is obvious, and yet for whatever reason reading it doesn't do anything for me. I can't tell what's missing.
>推しが武道館いってくれたら死ぬ 5
I keep seeing it in my suggestions and I probably heard about it here at some point but forgot about it. What's the draw?
>ライター×ライター 2
I really like stories about writers, but I tend to only buy a select few Kirara series when they're finished (a good story with explicit yuri end) or when ongoing but have undergone extraordinary yuri circumstances that prove that I won't regret buying it based on those merits alone (like Slow Start, specifically when I saw those gay cutouts to promote the manga/anime). Is the yuri really that weak? I was hoping it would at least fall into the first category.
>おやすみシェヘラザード 2
Honestly, I don't know why I bought the first one, or this one either. I usually avoid yuri I'm uncertain about, and I barely understand it half the time, but my gut told me to go for it so I did. I would really hate it if my gut tricked me.
>将来的に死んでくれ 5
I haven't bought it yet and I only read a few chapters before losing interest, but I can see myself buying the whole set if it ends well. This type of series can be appreciated in a new light if I know it will have a very solid end point.
>夜と海
The very first thing I thought of when I read this was the visual similarities to Nettaigyo. That's really all they share though. Maybe there is a universal agreement that wistful pondering in front of an aquarium backdrop enhances one's gayness.
>>
>>2772245
That happened quite a long while ago though, that Eva issue was in like 1996, and Hatsune Miku in 2011. But it certainly shows the power of otaku-related specials.

>>2772247
A-at least we'll be now getting digital Kirara that's not just Forward.

>>2772090
The cover is actually a throwback to the cover of <harmony/> released exactly ten years ago, that yuri SF book that got made into an anime movie a few years ago and was even released in English.

It's not hate for Shouraiteki, if it was hate I wouldn't buy it, I just don't find it funny when the gags are always the same and there is no development at all. And I do hate dick jokes.

>>2775267
>推しが武道館いってくれたら死ぬ
You can wait for the anime to see if you may like it. It's just a girl crazy for an idol and that idol has basically no fans so that one girl is special for her but I doubt it will ever go full yuri since when they meet out of idol events they keep their distances.

>ライター×ライター
It's two anime writers living together, they respect each other and there is some subtext but the author used the word "yuri" in the comment at the end of the first volume.

Do we already know what there will be in AnoKo's last volume's limited edition?
>>
>>2775022
>おやすみシェヘラザード 2
It's one of those things that I doubt will have a solid yuri end. I feel like exactly like the MC, got baited so hard everytime and now feel close to bursting.
>Yoru to Umi
How gay is it? I like what I see from the first free chapter, but then from experience this could also end really badly.

I think for new series the only one I will confirm buy is Still Sick, and that is because I already know how it ends. It surely shows how much the ending affect my opinion of a series.
>>
>>2775280
I'm still so salty. I tried really hard to find harmony with that cover during my trip to Japan, but had to settle with the one using the anime visuals.
>>
>>2775613
The most yuri thing in Writer x Writer was the mech anime that the main character was one of the writers on. It did have a mech activating yuri kiss scene (come to mention that, Cosmofamilia might be the most yuri series in Forward currently as it's also using power activation to motivate yuri kisses).
>>
>>2775638
I remember dropping cosmofamillia by the first chapter when I saw a male character but I should have check that out more.
>>
>>2775613
It was just hyperbole.
>I do hate dick jokes.
I usually find them annoying, but Hishikawa's really get me. Somehow they ring true as "gay girl who makes dick jokes" where others just don't.

>they keep their distances.
Adding that they only keep their distance when they meet because they're both big gay disasters. Some of the other idols are pretty gay too (the side couple). Still, it's definitely comedy and Hirao, so I agree that one should tailor their expectations accordingly.

>Do we already know what there will be in AnoKo's last volume's limited edition?
The only bit I know is that a number of the 店舗特典 leaflets for previous volumes will be included. Joke's on me for paying the forwarding costs to get a bunch of those.
>>
>>2775685
>店舗特典 leaflets for previous volumes will be included
I'd buy it no matter what, but now I'm really excited. The only extras I have for the series is a little art card from an amazon bundle for the first volumes. I wouldn't be mad to have two.
>Joke's on me for paying the forwarding costs to get a bunch of those.

After the travesty that is Manga no Tsukurikata, I has sworn I would stay off Hirao but somehow her story always got me. I guess I'm just a sucker for her art and the atmosphere she creates.
I mean on paper Manga no Tsukurikata seems infallible, the two mains date each other for the entire duration of the series, no guy pop up, and yet at the end it's still a hot mess.

I really hope the oshibudou anime (if it ever arrives) is good, it's so easy to mess up the translation of static jokes to a moving medium and I feel like Hirao's style is a pretty important part of the humour too. Worried.

>at the end it's still a hot mess.
True, yet even with that I still enjoyed the journey a lot (after I figured out the pace, and to never listen to the dust jacket pitch). There were some amazing meta bits. Not very satisfying in terms of yuri though, I admit.

I'm fidgetting here. At first the author released an Aikatsu doujin on November https://twitter.com/oka_paya/status/1062519651811217408
Later in November they release tweet about making a copybook "to delve into the relationship between the two". Not knowing any better was asumming it should be about the Aikatsu doujin.
https://twitter.com/oka_paya/status/1067147437641355264
So I place my order to someone who can buy stuff in comicket. Then looking at their recent tweets about their original yuri doujin https://twitter.com/oka_paya/status/1074354191986872323
It suddenly sink to me. What if the copybook in question is actually for their original doujin instead of the Aikatsu one? Anyone have similar experience of author being ambiguous? I’m still waiting for their menu. The last tweet was from yesterday. Looking from other circle among their circle page, it is likely they focus on original yuri instead of Aikatsu this time. https://webcatalog-free.circle.ms/Circle/14222140

>EraSumireTeru, the only good era game. Your family forces your hand and has you kidnap and train a girl you know. It's a Saki fangame (the Mahjong waifus manga/anime), and extremely good. Has dynamic images and everything

If you are not sensitive about one of the girls being experienced with men it's pretty good (no het on screen). The heroine reminds me of Yuzo of Citrus which is a great plus.

But more on the topic, I'm here to spread the gospel of this gem. It's sublime bliss to anyone who loves Nettaigyo. Trust me I was the first to spread the love of Nettaigyo.

We were talking about that series just a week or two ago for being a nice surprise of the year. Hopefully vol 2 won't be too far away since its in a quarterly magazine.

Huh, was it really the novel author who said that? I thought it was someone from the anime stuff.

Is that the anon who keeps making early generals just because they want to be the OP? You have one job.
I don't know if I should post the OP in there or reporting it.

Different Anon, but this thread's on page 10, nee-chan.

>Should I post the links in the OP here in the shitty new thread or report that and make a new one with the links?

>>2787217
I'd just post the links, Nee-chan. Mods hardly ever delete the first new thread in favour of another new thread posted later on (unfortunately). People need to look at previous OPs before creating a new one, though. Especially on generals that have been around a long time.
