Japanese wiki listing yuri manga (not updated anymore):

New releases list (include subtext, goggleable, CGDCT and such):
The 13th volume of Konohana Kitan comes with a calendar. There's no pictures of it yet, but on twitter it seems to be advertised as something "you shouldn't let your parents see" (?), so it's a gamble. Hopefully it's not too lewd.
OP pic source?
Saucenao says it's from Pixiv.

Extremely lewd.
This is mostly what I'll try to get in November

Conflicted on getting おとりよせしまっし!because the author's last series made me lose faith in their abilities but I'll probably still get this since it doesn't look bad. I don't normally buy physical novels but have been considering 盟約の少女騎士 since the cover is gorgeous and it will probably be a good challenge read. Skipping クズ浪人生、人生が辛いので夜のお姉さんを呼んでみた (1) for now because I just don't seem to be able to enjoy reading it even though the right ingredients are there.

Unfortunately no tapestry, but the Anemone volume 2 bonus is still very cute.
That looks nice. I might actually go for the special edition this time. How big are those boards typically?
Been looking forward to seeing this reveal since the last volume's beautiful acrylic stand bonus. The illustration design choices for all these bonuses are on point.

Somewhere around the size of A4's larger side except square, comparable to a closed laptop. They're big.

The "Savage Yuri Anthology" novel (殺伐百合アンソロジー『Edge of Lilies』) will release tomorrow at COMITIA138, and it's also being sold at BOOTH. It's a compilation of short stories with a darkish theme of varied genres, each written by a different author. It ended up being 520 pages long.

Webpage: https://3282.info/
Physical edition: https://3282.booth.pm/items/3016511
Digital edition will be available on Kindle in December.

I ordered the physical edition today. Looks pretty dope. I hope they start to ship soon.
Before I start throwing a tantrum for nothing, is クズ浪人生、人生が辛いので夜のお姉さんを呼んでみた released only digitally?
And did 百合と声と風纏い go digital only too?
I can't find the book for both of them. Why does Amazon keep showing me kindle shit when I'm browsing the book category if there is a category aside only for kindle?

クズ浪人生 is a thing but 百合と声と風纏い after making us buy three volumes won't give us the final book and we will never be able to read the end? I'm ready to rage. It keeps happening and I'm fucking tired of this shit.

There you go.
And not a single fuck was given for the people who wasted money buying the books. It makes me want to stop supporting artists that don't have a big publisher behind them when usually it should be the opposite.

I add
The 4 volumes of Saki
初恋*れ~るとりっぷ (3)
ゆゆ式 (12)

I can't believe this is still blocked on Amazon after a whole year they blocked the 5th volume for no reason. Why the hell?

There is no number so it's only one volume and the chapter in this month's YH was the last one?

I don't understand what this is. Is it something like an artbook more than a manga? Is it a derivative work of something?

Do we know if it's actually yuri or it's just wishful thinking?

First time I heard about this. Did anyone follow it since the beginning and can say if it's safe? By the few chapters on the site it looks like something that could add rape any moment.

This looks interesting too but it also reeks of friendship that won't ever go anywhere.
I just bought Tokyo Love from Takashima Rika at a con. She’s really nice! I was awkward!
It is the comfiest autobio yuri manga that we ever got so I hope it isn't really ending. I want to see a legal yuri marriage arc.

It's a manga. I think it got redrawn/updated for this release and some of it was included in one of the gxg anthologies. I didn't know that it had artwork/other stuff added in as well but after seeing that link I hope it uses color insert pages because the art looks good.

It's officially tagged yuri but I haven't seen any first hand reviews that go into detail about that yet.

The author called it yuri and mecha but the sample didn't really look like much. Also get the same impression that it isn't a safe series to buy blindly. I'm just going to wait and see if people like it when its over.

Synopsis uses 友情. My copy hasn't arrived yet but I'd check out 殺し屋やめたい instead which is similar but has actual yuri.

I don't know her work and can't find anything online but that sounds fun, was this at yesterday's comitia or are there other yuri events going on?
you might know it as リカって感じ!?, it’s not really yuri genre but it is about lesbians in japan.

On mangaoh there's a lottery for getting a signed bonus. I was lucky enough to win last time, let's see if my luck has run out.
Animate international is offering unlimited free shipping until November 30th. They offer both DHL and EMS and it is completely free with the code. I bought about 20k yen worth of stuff with 10k yen of shipping for free.
>yuri hime
There was a bunch of cospa event merch added with most of the stuff from >>3575276. I already had what I wanted from there ordered through their event site unfortunately so I can't enjoy the amazing value that this offers.
>wataten nendroids
I already had both of these preordered at goodsmile but buying it from here is literally half the price. I kind of want the goodsmile extras still but its hard to argue with that price.
>storage folders
They have a few storage things which are hard to import cheaply so with free shipping this is the cheapest way to get these that I've ever seen.

School zone v4 and mug set is getting an additional art card bonus (pic). Also does anyone know if pre-ordering that in November still earns FP for the melon festival since point are earned after shipping, or did the order have to be placed in December to count?
The description of the fair makes it sound like the order needs to be placed during the fair, so after Dec 1st. If you did order them before that though and still get them, let me know so I can kick myself harder. On the very first day they ran out of School Zone 3, both versions of Kaijuu Iro no Shima 1 and the acrylic extra for Anemone, so I had to look for alternatives from Melonbooks that I'd also like and would get me to my target FP and other shops that still had those two books in stock.

I have all 22 yuzumori-san benefits from vol 1-5, plus their yuriten acrylic stand. Anyone know if any other merch was made for the series?
I'll try to remember to report back in a couple weeks. I won't be getting most of my points until the end of the month though so I'm nervous that the good ones will sell out before I can get it. I noticed anemone v1 is getting its bonus reprinted to celebrate v2 coming out so now is a good time to get it if you held off before even though it sucks that you missed out on the acrylic bonus. I'm struggling to get the points I need for all the prizes I want since doujinshi don't count towards FP and I only spend 15k yen at most a month on new releases usually. I really want that 25FP prize but I don't see how I can do that without sacrificing all the other good stuff.
I remember some anons being sad they missed the last printing of 私の可愛い子猫ちゃん. Here's your chance to get the reprint.
I'm one of those anons but it's meaningless if it's not on Amazon.
It was available on other sites before but I'm not gonna pay like 3000+ yen for a single volume.
I'm having the same problem now trying to find alternatives to Amazon for SekaOpa 6 that's still blocked for no reason but the best I can find is 2400 yen of shipment for a volume of 600 yen. It's way too much, I could by 3/4 more yuri volumes with that money.
It's easy to say "don't give money to Amazon" but the truth is there is no real competition, nobody likes to waste money on shipment.
I guess to get it I'll have to split my december order between Amazon and cdjapan because the shipment/volume ratio decreases when you add more volumes (though it's still higher than Amazon).
Maybe when Kitta Izumi will go to live in England she will realize how difficult is to buy manga from outside Japan and they will change something in the system of Galette's releases. At the beginning it worked, I could buy Liberty and other volumes without any problem but it's at least one year since they started printing way too few copies and I lost every volume.
I just saw Melonbooks restocked both the normal and limited version of Kaijuu Iro no Shima 1. I also found School Zone's Christmas tapestry in a second hand shop again. Last time I found it, it went out of stock again within a week. Apparently there's a chance for any of the Melonbooks fair items to appear on auction sites or shops like suruga-ya afterwards.
It's going to be restocked on Amazon as well.

>Temporarily out of stock
How does it work? Are they taking orders before of printing it so they will print the exact number of requested copies?
I'd like to buy something else with it in order to distribute the shipment cost on more volumes but if I don't know when it'll be available they'll immediately ship the other stuff separately.
If I place the order now and I agree to pay 1650 for shipment is there any chance it will be cheaper when they'll ship it?
Not sure how they're allotting stock but if it was something unusual it would likely have a preorder-until-x-date on the page. Since this doesn't it is probably going to be a set number. Personally I'd just pre-order it now and if it is still available when you are making a new order you can make the new order then cancel the old one to save on shipping. Price won't go down before it comes out so don't count on that.
SHWD is threatened to get the axe if it doesn't sell more. Author says paper sales help the best but the sales would have to double to save it. Need some yuri whales out there to buy out a warehouse.

It seems it will restock on 12/31, so the shipment can be shared with the 7 volumes released on the 27th.
First time I've seen an author say that preordering affects how many printed copies a volume will get.
Preparing my order I was about to miss Jahy 8, I really don't understand how yurinavi works by including a lot of stuff without any yuri and then leaving out heavy subtext series like Jahy and Satsuki.

I can't find any pic of the アクリルスタンド included in the となりの吸血鬼さん 8 特装版, I'd like to know if it's something yuri or I can just buy the regular edition.

Adding the new series of Fujimatsu Mei in my excel list I noticed I don't have the second volume of ユニコーンと寂しがりや少女 and I don't see it on Amazon either, not even on Kindle. What happened? It's Dengeki, not a minor publisher that will just give up a series without even releasing the end.
1x1/2 vol.4 in English is out on the fanbox, technically the first commercial work I had a hand in translating (just one chapter), probably the last one too.
December is full of great releases as usual. This is what I'm planning to get so far:
声がだせない少女は「彼女が優しすぎる」と思っている (6)

Flower of happiness

つばめティップオフ!(4) is digital only again, but it looks like (3) is surprisingly coming out next year as a physical copy so maybe the publisher finally realized people actually want to own it. I've never seen this happen before and it would be nice if some other digital only books got re-released so I'll definitely buy it. 母の元カノと暮らした。is an easy pass for now. ママごと-小学生ママと大人のムスメ- has an official yuri tag on yurinavi which I didn't expect since the series seemed to only tease it. May end up getting the set of volumes since the author is one of the good ones. ほろ酔い道草学概論 didn't immediately grab my attention so I'm not sure if it is worth getting, and in general I feel thatdrinking yuri series tend to be lacking in yuri.

I was hoping it will be a smaller version of the one pictured here >>3587254 but I'm not sure. Either way it has the wedding dress cover variant and the obi says the standee is of ソフィー & 灯 so it is worth it to me either way.
I missed this one. The cover looks really cute, and going by the description it might get pretty gay, which is good.
Even if this isn't full-on yuri (and instead something more family-oriented, like Nijiiro Photograph) I'd still really like to read it, I wish it would get picked up again by translators someday, now that the series is finished.
You can buy it directly from the author on booth:
I guess Kodama Naoko's collection book has been skipped on purpose?
I see MahoAko is also missing and I totally understand because I want to drop it too since it's become nothing but tentacles and stupid porn meme like the stuck in the wall one with the girls barely touching each other.

>Flower of happiness
What is this? I don't see it anywhere.

You gave me a great news.

I found only the first chapter online and I decided to pass. It seems interesting but it also doesn't look it will actually go yuri, I'm gonna wait some spoilers.

>推しVが教え子で私がママで!? (1)
I've also doubts on this one, the first chapter doesn't tell much.

>the standee is of ソフィー & 灯
Yes, but what are they doing on it? Because if it's just wedding dress and holding flowers looking at (You) like on the cover I don't need it.

This is weird, how come Dengeki not only didn't publish it but also gave up on the rights and let the author publish it herself as a doujinshi?
I intentionally skipped 好きだからHしてます but I still like and do plan on buying 魔法少女にあこがれて 6 and just didn't realize that I skipped it in the list. I agree the vtuber series didn't sell itself well in the sample but I saw that it calls itself a yuri love comedy so I'm taking a gamble on it.

One day before the release of Tonari no kyuuketsuki 8 I still haven't seen a single official pic showing the acrylic stand (really bad marketing) but I've found this pic on twitter so it seems I was right about it, just the two of them looking at (You). I don't need that self-insert shit so I can finally place my order with the regular one.
What are you all getting this C99?

Hate it when I find out about a doujin series and everything except the most recent release is already out of stock making a complete set impossible.
Are there any good yuri-themed figures or sets currently available?
I've been looking to add some to my yuri shelf, but the only one I have is the Neptune-Uranus set.
The only yuri figures I've ever seen are the Candy Boy ones, but good luck finding ones that aren't pre-owned.
I guess there's also less explicit series that have some nice figures like YuYuYu or Symphogear.
You're unfortunately a little late to the party as most stuff sells out and becomes very expensive 2nd hand almost immediately upon release dates, to the point where even finding them 2nd hand becomes difficult or impossible in some cases. Bloom Into You and the pair of Candy Boy figures are the only romantically themed two-person yuri figures that I have and the only ones I'm aware even exist. There was one R-18 themed yuri figure that I've seen pictures of but I don't really remember what the characters were from or if it was even from a yuri series and not just an erotic pose with some randoms. There is a paired OshiRabu statue set coming out soon but I haven't seen pre-orders anywhere yet. For single characters, there are nendoroids of many yuri characters from yuru yuri, wataten, release the spyce, crimson urn, and even tracer (overwatch) and probably more. There are some prize figures for animated yuri series such as yuri kuma arashi, hina logi, and others which I have that are decent quality as well. If you broaden your scope to include acrylic character figures then you have a lot more romantic options to choose from, and there are pictures in the last couple threads for those.
Ever Maiden preorders are up and the number of different store benefits are out of control. 6 drama CDs exclusive to each store, how many yuri whales are there that can afford to buy an 8000y game that many times?

I remember looking at those and skipping on buying it for some reason. I think I thought it had some sketchy stuff that turned me away from it initially, but I don't really remember why. What makes it so good?

So v1 opens with a drunken kiss and ends with sober handholding? I guess I'll reevaluate when reviews hit for v2.

I started buying luck & logic trading cards so I could open them while watching hinalogi and ended up buying more than I set out to. It was a lot of fun opening although I didn't end up opening everything. There are so many good yuri themed cards in these sets.
What level of Japanese do I have to be at to start reading yuri? I'm currently self-studying and usually I'll power through a subtitled video of two japanese women flirting but during those times I have sound to help me figure out the kanji I'm seeing. While reading, depending on the demographic there will be no furigana.

Are there any yuri manga you could recommend to I guess a upper beginner/lower intermediate?

I enjoyed the series and would count it as yuri. Makoto develops a crush on Yuzu in the last few chapters, though Yuzu doesn't realize it.
That sounds pretty good. I only have the first volume because I absolutely adore the cover, hearing this I'll probably finish the set soon.
I'd recommend reading as soon as you can.

>Are there any yuri manga you could recommend to I guess a upper beginner/lower intermediate?
The answer is always that you should read things you are interested in.

For reference, here's a few recent or well known series that have full furigana.

You can also try playing VNs with text hookers, ripping text from LNs, or web novels if you want to read yuri with easy dictionary lookups.
What's a good way to rip text from LNs if I buy them from Amazon or bookwalker? I tried with Calibre for the Amazon ones but the text was kinda messed up.
Calibre+DeDRM has almost always worked for me. However, I generally use the html or text outputs and read in a browser.
>I generally use the html or text outputs and read in a browser
Amazon won't let me open the LNs in the browser, they're forcing me to use their Kindle app even on desktop.
Thank you so much, anon. I'll look into these.
Is anyone familiar with importing from taiwan? Are there any particular shops that ship internationally, or any forwarder/proxy that you use?

Nice. I wish I had the Yui artwork. My School Zone merch will be arriving in a few months. I opted for the cheap 40€ surface shipping compared to 120€ air mail. I can wait a while if it means I don't pay more shipping than item costs.
I get impatient waiting over a week for my yuri to arrive because it was sitting in a warehouse for weeks beforehand. Waiting 3 months on an near-untraceable shipment sounds like torture.

Yuri ranbo card art is cute, and the quality of the cards is high.
I'm hesitating whether I should buy this. On the one hand it looks pretty awesome but on the other hand there's no way I'll ever find anybody else to play this with...
I'm super late to buying the western PC physical releases for the Flowers games (I already own them on Steam) but they're pretty af.
Are they ever cheaper than 40 bucks each?
I want them but for that money I'd rather buy something else.
They never go on sale that I saw but I think I had a coupon code for a site for free shipping at some point which saved a few dollars. At this point with them effectively out print its just lucky that they're still available at list price.
I also got boyish2 and 湯けむりキラキラ物語

> 2版からはカバー・口絵なしのフランス製本仕様となっております。
They didn't add this warning in the Melonbooks description when they first started taking preorders so it's kind of a dick move. If I had known this before, I wouldn't have ordered it.
Well, this sucks.
