Today's haul, spend 110k yen already in two months, all worth it.

Nice selection. I see succubus ja nai hidden under there, as well as millefeuille. I like the art on the booklet for the LN too although it makes me depressed to think abotu how many extra leaflets/booklets are lost because no one can get them. I don't remember why I never got Pon Pon Pon but I know I avoided it, was there some reason you wanted it?

Wow how many books is that? It takes me over 4 months to spend that much and I basically buy all the yuri available plus I have to pay to ship it internationally. You must have really splurged to get that much in 2 months.

I read the sample book, so far nothing weird on it and ended with a kissing scene.
I think around 100 books or more already. Couldn't help it once I got back into buying yuri stuff, I really want to support the author for the series I like, even tho it's just a miniscule.
Also since there is no shipping fees, I can get double serving than ever before.

I placed an order on Amazon days ago but it hasn't been shipped yet, I don't know why since everything is on stock, and now new stuff got released. Is there any way to add items to an existing order?

Same for me, I still remember her previous series on CUNE that was advertised as yuri and the main couple started fucking the male MC in the first chapter, that's why I waited before buying Pon Pon Pon but it turned out to be full yuri.

Here's today batch, bought some new and old favorite stuff. Not really fond of JK and OL but I want to thank Sato Sensei for creating Fragtime.
>>
>>3423176
Must be fun getting a near-daily intake of yuri instead of 1 delivery a month. I see shinozaki-san 9 under mochi which is a great finale. Also mira's art card having a signature is a nice touch, I always like when they add those to the bonus art even though they're fake. What's the art card from thats standing in front of sodapop's doujin? Never heard of the knight gale and can't tell what is on top of 120% either. You bought 2 copies of なきごえ聞かせて? かなでさん which offset me skipping it. Drawing a blank on what is underneath that one too for some reason. Not being fond of JK to OL is unfortunate but supporting Sato despite that is honorable and I respect that.
>>
>Must be fun getting a near-daily intake of yuri instead of 1 delivery a month.
Already said in the previous thread, I sacrificed a lot to support yuri.
>What's the art card from thats standing in front of sodapop's doujin?
That's Sex Ed 120% vol 3 bonus, where the teachers start dating each other.
>can't tell what is on top of 120% either.
Bakeneko Hazuki
>You bought 2 copies of なきごえ聞かせて かなでさん
Only one, the other is bonus leaflet.
>Drawing a blank on what is underneath that one too for some reason.
It's Touko-san Can’t Take Care of the House, I really like the art.

I'm not into drama stuff, JK and OL also has too much BL.
>>
While I seems looks like buying and bragging (sure why not bragging after I went into hell) in this thread, that's not my main point.
I want to convert this thread into "Supporting Your Favorite Mangaka" in general.

Everyone has a different method to support. My method is a bit too extreme, moved to Japan in order to support directly require a lot of time consuming in learning Japanese and finding a job.
If you don't want to pay for the shipping cost, you can buy the digital version.
Did you know that most Yuri Mangaka using Twitter as their marketing platform? Some also using pixiv fanbox in order to get more support.
You only need to follow, like, and retweet your favourite mangaka twit, post some words of encouragement for them.
They are the one who are fighting for Yuri future in the frontline by creating Yuri stuff.

You can learn Japanese, help translating stuff or editing.
Scanlation is really working well in order to market stuff, I wouldn't buy stuff that I don't know the content of.

Yuri is growing than ever before, I still remember back in 2009 we was scraping for Yuri but now we have a lot more selection to choose.
Any little support/contribution will help your fav author.

I'm someone who lives in Japan currently and is trying to do the same. I just want to know what is the best way to help them. Buy from bookstores or digital copies, support their fanbox, RT and comment their tweets, and what else? It really saddens me going to book store to book store and seeing massive rows of yaoi but the yuri section has to share it with subtext Kirara series and anthology books. (I like both but the amount of actual yuri manga is so little when I know there's plenty that exist out there)
>>
>>3424730
> just want to know what is the best way to help them
Just buy their stuff is enough, but even one person can only do so much. That's why promoting stuff works better in the long run.
>the yuri section has to share it with subtext Kirara series and anthology books.
That's the problem with yuri manga in Japan, they have yuri only section for Yuri Hime manga, the rest are separated by their publisher. Not sure how bookstores arrange stuff but mostly the same.
>>
>>3424730
If you live in japan send in those surveys, also always buy physical copies on release week. Fanbox is a good way to give monetary support for an author but it doesn't keep them serialized so I'd only consider that for doujin artists who don't have ties with a publisher yet. I'm sure retweeting and liking is helpful in a very minor way to motivate or let the publisher know people like it, but unless you have people following you I don't really see how it would have any impact on a larger scale since its real purpose is free marketing.
>>
>>3424730
Offer your body to them for free so they can get the horniness squared away and concentrate on their work. You may have to undergo surgery for Itou Hachi though. Just being a little person probably won't cut it.
>>
>>3424733
>Just buy their stuff is enough, but even one person can only do so much. That's why promoting stuff works better in the long run.
I've been telling people who live here about yuri but I don't think it's working. They called AdaShima muzukashii.
>>3424736
I should do more surveys, you're right. I always forget and find it kinda tedious to do, but I should always do it.
>>3424738
But I don't want to have sex with the mangaka, I just wanna make sure they can live a proper and healthy life.

I bought the limited edition of citrus+ 3 (well, there's no other choice anyway since it's the only one in that format) thinking to get the usual booklet with an extra chapter but this time they put a... I don't know how to call it in english, they called it mini 屏風, which I appreciated a lot but then I looked at the picture inside and... a Yuzu solo pic facing the viewer (a scene from one of the first chapters so it's not even an original one).
I keep being unable to understand what they think when they make this kind of extra for yuri series. We like yuri, we buy yuri, we want yuri, why would they keep putting solo stuff like if we were waifufags? I really can't stand this way of thinking of most publishers.
A lot of wasted stuff. This 屏風 could have been a great thing if just it was a pic of Yuzu and Mei doing something gay.
The BDs of AdaShima had absolutely nothing yuri in it as an extra except for the mini LN chapters that were the only reason to buy them. Fucking solo stickers. And in the 4th volume the stickers were as useless as ever. The sticker of a can, seriously? Like, no effort at all. Why not making something like printed cards of the anime end cards?
A lot of other stuff also have store exclusive drawings of only one girl looking at the viewer. It's something that drives me mad.
>>
>>3427313
I liked the citrus folded art board, maybe just because of the novelty, but I agree that having only half of an iconic couple on a piece of art does diminish the yuri appeal and I don't prioritize it when displaying my yuri merch on a shelf. Lots of art bonuses are solo pictures unfortunately, most likely because it takes more time and effort to draw a scene with two characters. I'd prefer a more intimate illustration but I'd be happy if the next volume had a Mei art board so I could put them on opposite ends of my Citrus shelf.
>>
>>3427313
I agree but if it really a lewd solo picture, I just won't buy it from the start. Citrus+ folded art isn't that bad, it has an encouragement message.

All of my yuri manga and LN collection so far.

Perfect shelf height, plus all that yuri in one place? That's really satisfying to look at. You're going to need a lot more bookcases like that if you're dropping 50k per month on yuri though, that's more than a full shelf worth of yuri per month.

Anybody ever preordered anything from Gamers? If so, what is the best proxy/forwarding service for it?
>>
>>3437437
I haven't used gamers because they never had any yuri exclusives that I was interested in, did they finally get something cool? Any proxy or forwarder you have set up and are happy should be fine, the buyfag guide in the OP is a good source. Zenmarket is easy to use but their fees suck if you plan on buying multiple items. Forwarding is cheaper in the long run but I'm not sure if gamers takes foreign credit cards so a proxy may be easier if that is an issue.

To be fair yes, there's nothing explicitly romantic (at least in the first volume) but there is a lot of blushing that don't make it look like friendship at all though that's probably what the author will tell you.

Do you mean page count or book size? 160p is a nice surprise for sure. There are a handful of really packed releases this year. Eden no Otome v4 had 228p and Otome no Teikoku v16 had 264p. It's interesting that the prices for a book only change when its A5 vs B6 format.

I guess I could send in a picture when it arrives next week and see what happens. I was hoping they would just contact Amazon and have replacements sent out through them. Without that there's no way they accounted for international shipping so whatever replacement program they have is going to cost me more in import fees than it would to just buy another copy.

New EMS fees added to all zone 2 regions. Looks like it starts about 20% more expensive at the very first weight entry and steadily increases up to a maximum 60% increase. Hurts to see that 1.5-2kg is a 30-35% increase since that is probably the most common weight I imported in the past. I'm not sure how to calculate it but courier fees may actually break even at the higher weights considering how quickly the EMS fee adds up once the box goes over 6kg. I was hoping yuri would start being cheaper to import once EMS came back but it looks like it is only a minor improvement now.

Murcielago and Himegami sold out like a hotcake. I was fortunate enough to be able to snatch the last copy. Yuri sells well if you have a long history in making yuri series. I guess that's make sense.

What are some yuri manga or goods /u/ bought recently that wasn't a monthly release? Maybe because you missed it or maybe just changed your mind on it, whatever the reason. I learned about みーちゃんとアイリ from the recent release thread and I thought it was cute so I ordered a copy. I also got ヤンキー×ジャーキー after seeing it mentioned here because it looks fun. I also found this adashima art display while browsing which looks cute and it was actually affordable so I got it.

Omaegotoki sold out on amazon before I could buy it so that is probably a good sign even though I'm worried I won't be able to get it easily now. Is that the melonbook wolf/sheep booklet? I was thinking of getting that if I make a melon order soon.

I want the gamers and zin ones but if I'd get any it would have to be a 4 page booklet. Melonbooks almost always get the best exclusives somehow. I also saw that japan passed a law a couple months ago so mangaka will actually get paid for drawing these now, because apparently it wasn't illegal not to before. Hopefully that means more yuri art for some series even though it kills me not being able to buy it all

>>
>>3475590
Toranoana system is kinda weird, the bonus item is listed as a free separated item that you must add into the cart. If it's not there yet, they will add it later. I think you'll better wait before pre-ordering stuff.
>>
>>3475604
Thanks for the reply. How would that work when using a proxy, though? I guess just to add a comment "hey add the free thing as well".

>>3475619
You should just wait until the release time. Even the proxy won't even be able to get the item before the release date.
>>
>>3475604
Lucky toranoana never had anything I desperately wanted yet. How often does the preorder sell out before the bonus is even listed? With melon/gamers I always try to preorder way before release because sometimes the preorder window closes or it runs out of stock.
>>
>>3475968
Yeah, toranoana bonus item is usually just an art card. Melonbooks has the best bonus so far 4p leaflet.
I totally forgot about the case of sell out before the release date. It depends on how popular the series is. I can't help you with toranoana since I never pre-order stuff from them myself.
Melonbooks has a system to merge both of the pre-order items to decrease the shipping fees not sure about toranoana.

Amazon apparently changed how they handle orders/preorders again. Now they accept the preorder but they charge separately for items that aren't immediately available.

My guess is that it just takes more time and effort to draw more than one character for all of these stores. I've seen authors finish the art just a week before the volume release date so I'm guessing there's a fair amount of crunch time involved too. Kind of ridiculous when a longer series may have dozens of pages from 4p melonbook leaflets that only a fraction of the readers will ever see.
>>
>>3481262
The good thing is we don't have to buy nth times the same book just to have a different extra that they could put with the volume itself.

I also didn't even buy 星屑テレパス so I have no idea where the card came from. Melon doesn't even list an art card for v1. Do they just stuff random extras in an order sometimes as promotions?

I'm planning to use Tenso to get all the stuff of the latest two years that Amazon wouldn't ship abroad. There are no more problems with the shipment, right?
>>
>>3491636
https://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/information/overview_en.html
Depends entirely on your country if you have restrictions still. Are you sure amazon is still blocking things? I haven't seen any problems with items for most of the year. CDJapan may be a good alternative too so you don't have to pay tenso fees on top of the shipping cost.
>>
>>3491817
No, Amazon seems to have stopped blocking random things (though SekaOpa is still blocked) but I was talking about bundles, stuff sold by third parties and R18, these have always been blocked for international shipping.

>EMS items to some regions are not acceptable.
Well, that doesn't explain much.

>Loading mail items onto airplanes is expected to take about 1 month due to the shortage of cargo space caused by the reduction of flights.
Delays will be experienced in the delivery of mail items in the country (territory), and items will not be handed directly to addressees.
>1 month
>items will not be handed directly to addressees
What?
What's the point of using EMS if it will take as much as other, cheaper shipment?
I wanted to get it delivered while I was at home frome work so I can pay the custom taxes on the delivery but if it'll take a month I don't even know if I'll be at home when it'll finally arrive.
Also the prices of EMS are fucking insane, for 4000 yen Amazon will ship me 20+ volumes, for the same price EMS won't even ship 1 Kg.
>>
>>3492450
Absolutely no point to EMS at the moment unless you have a very large box with nothing in it. Every size/weight box combo I've tried has ended up costing way more with EMS than any of the courier options. For the items not being handed directly thing I'm pretty sure that just means that the local post office handles the last leg of the delivery which is normal.
>>
>>3492589
I can't afford to wait a month without even knowing when it'll be delivered.
Is there a forwarding service that ships with DHL (or another courier) like Amazon?
>>
>>3493111
Many forwarders/proxies started offering dhl, fedex or ups once the shipping restrictions blocked everything else for the last year and a half. Only thing to be aware of is that amazon gets a heavily discounted rate for DHL so the price you get anywhere else is still going to be significantly more than amazon. I generally see 4k yen amazon boxes end up costing me anywhere from 6-10k yen from an importer's DHL quote because they price it on volumetric weight. Buyfag guide in the op is a good place to research which service you want to use.
>>
>>3493207
>Many forwarders/proxies started offering dhl, fedex or ups
Nice, I didn't know about this, you're saving me.
I see Buyee, Zenmarket and PRJ all offers DHL but I also see they work differently from Tenso that gives you a japanese address and you buy as you usually do. They ask for the link of the product and then they buy it for you but how can I give them the link of an item that you have to choose among the different third party sellers?
For example, I can give them this link
https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/4758071829/
but there are 12 different sellers, how do I tell them which one to buy it from?
Also
>They do not allow you to ship loli/shota goods

>>
>>3493314
Proxy services do the buying part for you which is convenient. They charge a fee per item, although depending on how many items you buy it may not be a big difference from consolidation fees forwarders charge anyway. You get to specify any options that you want them to select when making the order, as many details as you want, and they basically just go through the request and make the order if it makes sense.

>>3493321
You should know your own country laws, but just pick any of the other companies without adult restrictions, most of the good ones don't have them.
>>
>>3493644
I see they all charge 300 yen for item which is quite a lot compared to Tenso that only took 500 yen and you could order whatever you wanted.
I also see 300 yen for item and 300 yen for order on the same sites, do they mean the same thing? I will place only one order from Amazon but with several items...

>You get to specify any options that you want them to select when making the order
I tried some sites but their form has only place for the URL and size/color there is no space to specify "buy it from...".

After further research I see Buyee offers a plugin that allows you to put the items you want in their cart and you can specify to buy it used but you can only say the price and not the seller. It's still the better option I could find.

>pick any of the other companies without adult restrictions, most of the good ones don't have them
Sorry if I insist but can you tell me what are the services you consider the best?
The "obscene articles" I quoted before is from Buyee that looks like one of the good sites, but it doesn't explictly forbid pornography, "obscene articles" really doesn't mean anything. I just want to know if they're fine with buying and shipping R18 stuff.
For my country laws I don't think there is any problem, I bought R18 stuff with Tenso before, even SonoHana stuff with naked Reo on the cover that could look loli to a sjw western, it's not like they open the package to look inside, the invoice should be enough for the custom.
>>
>>3493936
I don't want to promote the one I'm using at the moment because they mishandled some of my stuff recently and I don't know if they can redeem themselves for it yet. Buyee is a ripoff unless you just want the handholding convenience of their plugin. Their fees are insanely high compared to other proxies. Zenmarket is slightly cheaper overall and I used them a few times without an issue when I ordered an R18 yuri before, but I stopped using them because the fee per item adds up quickly. Importing is expensive and there isn't any easy way I know of to get around that.

Thank you for your answers.
I ended up opting for Blackship. They accept R18, give you an address so you can buy for yourself and they have DHL/FedEx.
Fees don't seem to be expensive but I'll see what they will actually charge me, and they have a lot of options.
I've already placed my order on Amazon, buying a lot of used stuff at low prices so even if fees and shipment will be expensive it'll still be acceptable. I won't ship it before of August though (they also have a free deposit for 45 days).

The Morinaga Milk / Hakamada Mera joint books are so lovely. This is the Morinaga cover side, I also got a special set for the most recent one which came with the picture frame and a bunch of art cards including MariAkko Girl Friends art, a clearfile envelope (why an envelope? no idea) which I forgot to take a picture of, and also a strange little mini cushion keychain with cute MariAkko art on it.

I received my package from Blackship so here I am sharing my impression of it (sorry for the prices in €, there is no option to convert them to yen).

First of all they give you a japanese address so you can buy all the items you want with a single shipment and they will charge you only once for each package, and it's only 0,83 € (~108 yen), a big difference from other services that make you pay 300 yen for a single item, and they also give you free photos of the packages when they receive them, together with weight and size.
And then you have 45 free days of storage.

I made two orders on Amazon, one for new R18 stuff and used stuff/bundles fulfilled by Amazon and another one for the used stuff that wasn't fulfilled by Amazon. Fortunately I found a single seller that had everything I was looking for so I chose that one instead of having different packages sent by different sellers.
But it didn't go well because that seller shipped me 10 volumes in 5 different packages making me pay more than what I was expecting for receiving the packages and for consolidation, however this isn't Blackship's fault.
So I paid for receiving 6 packages and for consolidate them in one package.

As you can see in the pic they give you a lot of addition options you can choose from when you apply for consolidation.
I chose insurance and express processing because I wanted to receive it this week. Well, it took less than 24 hours for them to consolidate and ship it, it was faster than expected.
After the consolidation they give you weight, size and photo of the final package.
They also let you edit the receipt of the shipment, allowing you to change number of items and prices and even marking them as "used".

Here the shipping fees for a package of 12 Kg.
Crazy prices. 100 € is around 13.000 yen, that's a lot for shipping alone. But there's no choice.
It's still worth it because I bought a lot of used stuff with prices from 100 to 400 yen so I saved a lot, but I don't know how can you guys regularly buy doujinshi and store exclusives at the full price using forwarding services. You end up paying double or even more just for the shipping.

Obviously I chose FedEx, cheap (compared to the others) and fast. I don't know why there's that difference of price with DHL.
You choose the shipment when you apply for consolidation (they want notice you when the package has been consolidated, they will ship it directly). The pice is estimated because they still don't know the actual weight of the consolidated package so it'll be higher (it went from 111 € to 119 €) but you can set a limit and if it'll exceed it they won't ship it directly.
It was the first time I used FedEx, they give you the tracking number and you can follow it on their site. It shipped last week's wednesday and I received it today. When it reached my country on friday I received a message from FedEx telling me I had to pay for custom taxes and they made me pay online so I didn't have to pay on the delivery, this is very useful.

The consolidated package was perfectly packed.
Since their fees are so cheap I thought they just threw all the packages inside a bigger package, but actually they opened the packages I received (so they saw that I bought R18) and they wrapped everything in bubble wrap and filled all the empty space of the box with paper so the volumes couldn't move (and I didn't even pay for extra padding).
Everything was in perfect condition.

I'm totally satisfied so I can suggest Blackship to others but be ready to spend a lot for the shipment.
>>
And speaking of custom taxes, I also placed my usual monthly order on Amazon for July's stuff (only 13 volumes, a poor month) and Amazon for the first time didn't charge me for custom taxes. They always put them when with the cost of the items and shipment but this time they didn't. It got me worried because I can't afford to pay on delivery, so I hoped DHL had a system like FedEx that notice you with a message before of the delivery and let you pay online but I didn't receive anything.
I was ready with the money in my hands when they delivered it today, thinking about how I could do from now on to receive package when I won't be at home, but they didn't ask me anything.
This is very weird, I've always been charged for custom taxes since I started buying from Japan 9 years ago, how come they didn't ask me anything this time?
It happened to anyone else?
I'll try placing another order before of going back to work, hoping they won't ask anything on delivery otherwise I won't be able to buy anything anymore when I'm not at home.

There’s no customs tax on books in my country and amazon still always takes it and then refunds it at a later date, so that sounds really odd to me desu
>>
>>3510046
Amazon uses the new IOSS system for European orders starting last July 1st (https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/ioss_en). If the order is <150€, the VAT will be added to the price of the items (it will not appear separately as "import fees deposit" as before), you can check that adding any item to cart and going to the last step of the buying procedure (after selecting the shipping address), you'll see the 10% Japanese VAT is not applied and instead whatever the VAT is in your country for the corresponding category of the items is added to the individual price of each item.

You can also check that by downloading the invoice for your order, where you'll see the tax rate.

Sounds like a good experience, maybe I'll consider them since I have a few high quantity low price items I want to buy that would be significantly marked up through a proxy. Also you lucked out only paying 119€ on shipping for a 12kg box. Even on boxes only weighing a few kg I usually pay 7000 yen so I have no clue how you got it so cheap. I intentionally break my orders up to prevent getting boxes getting too big/heavy because the costs start rising dramatically at a certain point. DHL was priced higher because they put more value on box size than weight alone.
>>
>>3510054
In my country books have the minimum VAT of 4% (still better than Japan that has everything at 10%) that you have to pay when you import them, plus a few € for the cost of the custom's "service".

>>3510104
You are right, I just checked the invoice.
In this case it doesn't change anything.
I wonder why the 150 € limit though, this time it was only 13 volumes but usually they're more than 20 in one order so what will it happen next time? Will they just charge it separately like before?

>>3510116
>maybe I'll consider them
I forgot to say, in order to give you an address, when you register they ask you for an official document, however they only need it to verify your name and address (and the expiration date of the document) so I censored everything else, like the photo, other info on the document and even the number of the document itself, and I had no problem.
It could be annoying but in the end they'll only have your name and address, info that you have to give them anyway when you have to ship the package.

Based fellow 4%er. Spain or Italy?

>I wonder why the 150 € limit though
That's just how IOSS works. It can only be used with shipments for which the "reduced H7 dataset" declaration is applicable, which are those exempted of import tariffs (if the value of the imported products is over 150€ you need to pay tariffs, 2.5% standard EU rate, but varies by category, in addition to the corresponding VAT). Some items like books are exempted of import tariffs (however, not of VAT, of course), but they still require a complete declaration (H6 or H1) if over 150€.

In IOSS, the VAT is paid directly in a monthly basis by the foreign non-EU company you buy from via a representative within the EU. However, in the normal non-IOSS system, VAT is paid at import time by the delivery company in advance, and then billed to the sender (in DTP "Delivery Taxes Paid" shipping, which is what Amazon used before July 1st, and uses now for >150€ shipments) or billed to the recipient+"handling" fees (which are not actually fees that go to the customs authorities, but to the delivery company, you can usually save on those "fees" by doing the customs declaration yourself in the Tax Office).

Since in non-IOSS shipments, Amazon doesn't directly pay VAT (or VAT+Tariff, if applicable), they can't ensure the amount you're paying in advance is correct, and since is labeled as a returnable "deposit". This will still happen in orders over 150€.
>>

Italy

It sounds like a mess, honestly, in particular
>the VAT is paid directly in a monthly basis by the foreign non-EU company you buy from via a representative within the EU
I'm surprised Amazon jp is going to take the burden to pay the VAT to a country abroad.
However the important thing is that they will keep charging what they must in the moment I'm placing the order so I don't have to pay anything on delivery.
>>
>>3510977
Yeah, IOSS was being marketed by the EU as a "revolutionary" import method for seamless tax payment, but in the end since the cost is so high for the exporters (they need to have a recognized accountant in the EU) only the big platforms implemented it. For Amazon it is probably nothing since their sales volume is high enough (that's also why we get that ultra cheap DHL shipping compared with smaller sellers that offer DHL as an option) and they already have EU representation anyway.

That's what most of us do, that's why it's a problem if they start putting random futashit in it (together with all the friendship and hetshit they already put in).
>>
>>3518676
I see yurinavi did actually put that futa series in their calendar. The title is 趣味のラブホテル, I'm reporting it because those fuckers didn't write anywhere that it's futashit. So exercise ultra care from now on when browsing their calendar. Well, it's something you should have always done to avoid hetshit like じょしまん anyway.
>>
>>3520845
Tweeting and putting a sales notice on the site was bad enough but putting that series in the calendar is way over the line. I always thoroughly vet any new series I buy but sometimes sample chapters or authors aren't enough to know for sure.

Damn that's a really nice looking statue, too bad it isn't adashima instead, or at least a /u/ show. Single character figures are probably all niche series in a niche genre can afford to make, it doesn't bother me much when they're intended to be put together. If dual figures are what it takes so I don't have to spend 30k yen to get a yuri couple posing together on my shelf then I'll be happy.

気をつけなよ、お姉さん。and the collected works of the pre-serial version 大きい女の子と小さい女の子. I pray this author will have a long and healthy career in yuri.
>>
>>3526907
The first volume of the serialized version already introduced angst and unresolved het drama so I'm not holding my breath.
The pre-serial version was great and that's what it was supposed to be: comedy chapters of few pages, it worked great. As soon as the author had to fill a certain number of pages he had no ideas so he had to resort to the cliches we hate "oh no, all my friends are getting married, I have to marry too, I'm going to have an omiai". The first volume was a real disappointement.
>>
>>3526957
Considering the focus of the omiai chapter was big girl going down on one knee how'd that ruffle your feathers so quickly? That gigantic age gap isn't going to work out if there is not even a droplet of character or story development, and I'd hardly call a page or two without slapstick gags to be angst. Plus I don't think there has even been a single male character in the series, not that it would ever pose a threat or be considered a real option. It is obvious big girl is going to sweep small girl off her feet every chance she gets so having the concept of marriage on the board means that their cat and mouse relationship is being compared to a romantic one which is a good thing.
>>
>>3528682
It's not like I'm afraid it will go het, I'm just saying I find it annoying.

>a page or two without slapstick gags
More like two whole chapters.
Yes, it's angst in the moment she starts thinking she should give up and keep her distance from the "loli" and try to get married like a "normal" person.
Also it didn't even bring development on the "loli" part, it makes you think maybe she realized her feelings when she thinks onee-san was getting married but nope, she just wants to play.
And then it ends with onee-chan saying she will give up on omiai "for now".

I don't read yuri manga to see the MC being pressured (and succumbing to the pressure) to get married to a man.
The short comedy chapters worked great.
