I hope for the release of White soon, but I've quite enjoyed all of the content we've had this year.

Now that breakdown has a kindle release I'm finally getting around to reading it. I just finished the first half. After some 10 or so volumes Im still surprised by how much I end loving the characters. Mana and Nanako-san will always have a special place in my heart but so far I'm loving Nefilia the most.

I've only read the first part of Breakdown because it's all that's translated. Gotta wait for Yen Press, I guess, but I've really enjoyed Breakdown more than I thought I would.

The /u/ in Breakdown is pretty delicious, between Merry/Chelsea and Nephilia/Renren.
This feels kinda shaft. I'd actually love to see a few of the fights animated by shaft. A Lethe fight or Dark Cutie fight would be kino.

It's unfortunate, yeah. Breakdown should be coming from Yen Press within the year though, and I'm also hoping that White will release in 2022. I'm sure Shitfleece will pick up the TL in that case.
Ive been lurking both official twitter but recently its been all about the goods lottery. Is it confirmed white is coming next or are we getting more short stories or a book from Asari's isekai series next.

It's not confirmed what's coming next. We know that White is to follow Black (as stated by Asari at the end of Black), but when exactly it'll drop or if another book will come out before it is up in the air.

If you don't follow Asari's twitter, you should. He sometimes writes Mahoiku short stories there. His most recent one was a Halloween special where Pukin and Marika meet each other, as well as SnoMari ship teasing.

I remembered there was some translation drama ages ago but should I be reading the Yen Press translation or the fan one linked in OP?
The fan one linked in the OP is an accurate translation, unlike the one that sparked the drama - aka the Platfleece translation. However, the fan TL linked only goes up to the third arc, Limited, as far as the main novels go. There's plenty of sidestories to read though, so you can alternate between them.

Shaping up to be a good year. Here is the cover for White, suspected to be Kana, aka the Third Sage, Ratsumu.

Only a month until I can read white. Breakdown and Black were really good too so its clear that Asari is getting better. My hype is immeasurable.
Captain Grace/Weddin is cute.

I'm jealous you have the skills to read White right when it releases. I'm going to buy the ebook and physical release with no context to the illustrations inside and then just wait for Fuckfleece to translate it (if he even is).
My JP wasn't all that great (and still isnt) when I first started. I just buy the ebook and export it to a word doc and use a chrome extension OCR. Now I can probably understand about 70 percent without a dictionary but when I first started it was only 50 percent with a dictionary. The action scenes and some character monologues were difficult but it was still enough to understand. If you know basic grammar I would just find an OCR and give it a shot.
Preview of sprites for White (and probably Red). The flower on Snow White's headband has finally bloomed.
Just rolled into Mahoiku, finished Restart. Unmarked was so-so, but holy shit Restart is awesome.

What are yuri related characters in this series?

Nana and Winterprison so far were canonical lesbians, but as characters they were meh.
I was hoping for Ripple x Top Speed, but then the reveal came out.
There was also Alice x Snow White, but it looks onesided.
Then there were Pfle and Shadow Gale with their crazy chemistry. Nothing sexualy gay, but Pfle is so in love with Gale that it hurts.

Are there any dykes to expect in the future arcs and how explicit can it get?
So glad to hear you enjoyed Restart. I think that's the point where Mahoiku catches most people, since Unmarked is a little on the slower side.

Pfle and Shadow Gale are one of the most popular ships in the series exactly because of all of their chemistry. If you liked them, you won't be dissapointed by what's to come with their characters.

The two most explicit lesbians in the series are Pythie Frederica and Pukin, both who have their first appearances in the arc following Restart: Limited. They definitely live up to the descriptor "explicit" as they're the two lesbians that are the most openly sexual with their attraction towards women. I can't say much as to not spoil you on specifics, but Pythie Frederica lusts openly after cute girls and a certain part of them that aligns with her fetish, and Pukin... well, that's a surprise, but she's my absolute favorite dyke in the series. She's a prince trope kind of lesbian, while Pythie Frederica is a femme; I'm sure you'll like one or the other if not both. There are multiple lines where the narrative pretty much straight up says they want to fuck cute girls.

As for JOKERS onward, there are two lesbian lolicons in JOKERS, as well as an innocent kiss scene between two girls. It also introduces one of Mahoiku's most popular ships. ACES goes a liiiittle lighter on the yuri if you don't have your goggles strapped on (though I still find a lot of it to have great ship scenes), but it gets pretty crazy again in QUEENS with one of the villains. Black is about the same.

TL;DR, you're gonna want to read Limited ASAP.
>most popular ships
Which one is that?
Marika Fukuroi and Styler Mimi.
Marika/Snow isn't that popular?
I personally love Marika/Snow and have seen a lot of yurifags like it too, but I think MariMimi is more popular, at least fandom-wise. PfleGale, Detec Bell/Lapis Lazuline, and MariMimi seem to be the big 3 for JP fandom.
Shame then, Marika/Snow is really cool and should be more popular

She could've saved them all if only she was able to get into the game. ;_; Reminds me I need to hurry and read my copy of Episodes Delta.

Any LazBell fans in this thread? I think it's cute but not something I'm super invested in. Though, it's hilarious to me that the first Lapis Lazuline passed on her "advice" to get those you're interested in drunk to take them home, and that's basically what the second Lazuline did to Bellsie. I prefer Lazuline/Melville.

Unfortunately not. Not hopeful for F2P but there's a good chance Yen Press will pick up Breakdown.

The release date for Red, initially set for April, has been pushed back. Instead, we'll be getting a new sidestories book then: EpisodesΣ.

I'm hoping to see some of the twitter exclusive stories make it to the book. Particularly the ones featuring Pukin, and the PfleGale one.

I can't read JP but I read the chapter titles for White, and saw the illustrations... holy hell. Post your thoughts in a spoiler once you're done or as you go along, please.
Sure but it will take me a while. Maybe Ill do chapter by chapter impressions or every two or so chapters. Also, I haven't started but I really hope we get something that pushes a deluge x snow white ship even if I like x ripple more.
I would love that if you can, take your time. Also, you have good taste, I also like the idea of Snow White x Princess Deluge. They're great foils of each other. Let's hope together that Asari gives us some crumbs of content for them.

The end. Really love the last illustration and this afterword in particular.

Sorry if you saw me miss the spoiler tab twice like an actual mental case, I was distracted.
Illustration posted by Maruino of Princess Lightning and her human self, Ai. By the way, the human names of all of the girls from Class 2-F were revealed. Just a few of them we knew before, like Tetty's, Mepis, and Kumi Kumi's, but here's the rest of them.

Tetty Goodniigiru: Fujino Toyama
Miss Lille: Satoko Kanegafuchi
Wrappy Tip: Rumi Itadakita
Mepis Pheles: Fuko Sayama
Thunder General Adelheid: Adelheid Müller
Kumi Kumi: Kumiko Tateno
Classical Lillian: Miki Chikage
Princess Lightning: Ai Tanaka
Sally Raven: Risa Karasuno
Psyche Plains: China Mizuta
Narakunoindiko: Hitomi Goto
Ranyui: Saho Suzui
Calcolo: Calcolo Crunf
I'd also recommend checking out monthlyMGRP's countdown tweets of their profiles. They're in the style of the previous fanbook profiles, and contain their stats, likes and dislikes, and a little comment from Kana.


Just scroll through their recent media tab.
And finally, Calcolo-sensei by Pochi Edoya.
Welp, I read all of White with a machine TL. If anyone has any questions related to things they're curious about feel free to ask. Of course, it's just a machine TL, so I don't have the nuanced details, but I feel the general idea is pretty solid.
Psyche Plains and Sally Raven were cute and gay in White.
I got to their first scene in white and realized I don't remember anything specific about black except Kana Mepis and Lighting Adelhied scenes. I've started re-reading black so I can rediscover their gayness.

A nice Mahoiku fan translated the new April Fool's Story from Asari's twitter. It's called Magical Girl Grappling Project and features the girls from Unmarked as streamers.

Breakdown part one from Yen Press will be released on September 20th of this year.
Wew. I'm like 30 pages away from finishing white. I'm really loving the team work haha its so great that Mepis and Tetty were able to make up hahaha they really came together as a class to defend the school hahahaha... someone. H E L P.
Lesbian love between two totally fine and normal magical girls is so cute. I sure hope nothing terrible happens to them!
The perfect villain doesn't exi- >>3641554. Man what an ending Right when I thought I lost my favorite living character she pulls the best switch-a-roo I've seen in a long while. White was one of the more predictable novels in the series especially after breakdown but that end really took me by surprise. The question is at what cost. Mepis's final paragraph still causes me immense pain. Actually I'm starting to think white was only possible with funding from Abe because every single ship in black is in a questionable spot save for Adelheid who has at least three but likely 8 more wives.

Red can't come soon enough.
Frederica is incredible, one of the best villains I've ever seen in a series. It helps that she's one of the more overt lesbians too. She has it all. I wouldn't go so far as to say White was "funded by Abe," but maybe that's because I have my goggles on very tight most of the time and I ship easily. I will say though that I was disappointed that Mepis was said to have "sisterly" feelings for Kana, but I will choose to ignore that for my own sake because I love KanaMepi. Adelheid is definitely the gayest girl in the Colors Trilogy though... she's so ikemen, and AdeLightning as a pair has incredible tension. It does seem the Colors triology is lacking in more in-your-face ships than the other volumes though. Diko/Ranyui is still cute.

I'm so excited for Red, and nervous too... let Snow White and Ripple be safe.
Honestly, this trilogy might have more ships than any of the other arcs but they just don't end very well. KanaMepi was sisterly for now but with better circumstances it could have been more. Especially because they both felt like the older sister. I hope Kana finds a way to save her. We don't actually know what happened to their bodies.

Mahoiku Black from Yen Press was released! I'm personally on Chapter Four myself. This translation is already miles better than Fuckfleece.

Kana a canon slut! I can't imagine how much Frederica was playing with her pussy the months leading up to Black.
I love Diko and Ranyui. I love Diko/Ranyui.
