Well, that's how romance works. Normalfags are just too used to het in which since the beginning they're already in love because, you know, she's a girl, he's a boy, so obviously they must end up together. That's just another reason why het is trash and yuri is superior.

No, as far as I know the details of her previous life never comes up and the only bearing it has is her modern sensibilities and her magical inventions being based on real world devices.

New novel published by Kadokawa. “About the Hero Girls who Don’t Graduatw From Beginner Hall Even at Level 99”
Story by Tokita Yui
Illustration by TakayaKi (who worked on Arifureta)

Unclear if it’s yuri or not but will probably at least be some kind of cute slow-life fantasy story.
>>
>>3671852
Now I've read the novel of Saikyou no youhei shoujo no gakuen seikatsu. It's really frustrating to read about very clear romantic feelings but the author has to insist with his tomodachi bullshit until the end, even after literally thinking about kissing and the final scene where they eat ice cream that looks like straight out from a porn. It reminds me of the author of Shokei shoujo saying girls must just flirt with each other and there's no need to make them end up together. Really twisted view of yuri.
The first volume of the manga adapts a little bit more than half volume of the novel, I guess the second volume will reach the end of the volume and the series will end since it's been 3 years without a new volume of the novel.
In general I'd say the manga is better in portraying yuri since you can see the classmates falling for the MC and the main girl blushing for her in the bath. The CPR kiss in the manga is also not in the novel.
>>

>>3695814
Is the LN translated/licensed?
>>
>>3695849
I know some anon was reading it, but I don't think it is.

The manga is translated to chapter 5 though, lot of violence, but anon said it gets some real yuri later.
>>
>>3695944
I’m caught up with the translated manga chapters but after going from manga to LN with Omae Gotoki I know I’m missing out by sticking with this one’s manga over the LN
>>
>>3695951
It may not be the case here though, I feel like this manga has a lot more exposition than Omae Gotoki already, so it may be taking things slower.

Also Omae Gotoki manga had a big hiatus, so they probably wanted to rush to the new arc already, but yeah, the LN is just better, I hope if it gets an anime they adapt the LN and just use the manga for some visual reference.
>>
Just caught up with Shokei Shoujo. Really good series.
Kind of amazing that it was not really discussed or shilled much before
>>
>>3695962
It still isn't.
>>
>>3695962
Would you recommend watching the anime/reading the manga or should I hope into the LN first then read/watch the others if I want?
>>
>>3695965
Well, it's a lot more noticeable now at least thanks to anime
>>
>>3695956
I was quite surprised by how different the manga was, definitely didn’t do the LN any justice by rushing through stuff
>>
>>3695969
I always go for the source material first and consider the others bonuses so I am not sure what to tell you
>>
>>3695972
I'm fine with the manga cutting some dialogues, but cuting the final part of the volume 1 was just a bad decision.
>>
>>3695971
I think it will do a good increase on the LN's sales, but I don't think it will get more discussion around here than the people who already are talking about it.
>>
>>3696000
I am just hoping to get some more discussion per volume release from now on
There should at least be more readers now thanks to anime
>>
>>3696008
It probably will, though I'm not sure if the SS thread won't end making people confused where to discuss it.
>>
>>3696010
The Otherside Picnic thread only existed while the anime was airing, I don't think Shokei is popular enough to warrant one after the anime ends either.
>>
>>3696053
The otherside actually lasted some months after the anime ended.

Though to be honest I think one of the reasons is because the manga is actually good and people would rather just discuss it.

Which also brings us back to SS, the manga adaptation is kinda lackluster, too much unecessary text and the art is really bland.
>>

Yes. Why wouldn't you want to consume more UraPi? If they made a Toriko perfume I would buy it.

Hibike Euphonium

Hibike is not yuri. The author did write a yuri short story in an anthology. It’s apparently the best thing in the anthology but that says more to the rest of it being really low quality yuri content.

I think Mikami Teren is a woman? (At least Teren uses a female avatar)

Not sure why it matters, though. Men can write good yuri and women can write bad yuri.

The “Strongest Tamer is Level 1” one is new to me. Checked the Narou version and it does have yuri tag.
Also seems to be VRMMO setting and not isekai (not that yuri LN are oversaturated with isekai)

Also quick reminder that Shokei Shoujo Vol. 4 comes out tomorrow.
>>
>>3699530
13th of this month. It's going to take place in the other world that's been brought up many times now.
>>
Busou maid ni mahou wa iranai 2 was very disappointing.
They spent the whole volume separated with the MC being trapped in another world with a man and it's just plot, plot and even more plot I can't care less about.
It already started very badly with the naked king in the beginning and adds pointless het rape of unnamed girls and women in a flashback for the sake of it and a het side couple. It introduced a new girl confessing to be in love with the MC just to kill her off immediately after. When MC is finally free again it's time to fight the enemies so even more plot.
The main couple have a significative moment only in a couple of pages before the end and it's definitely not enough.
I can't recommend it for the yuri and I won't be buying the 3rd volume before of reading spoilers about how yuri it will be.

>>3699647
I've just learnt I must be more selective with novels so I'm skipping that new one and getting only the other three.
>>
>>3699089
>Not sure why it matters, though. Men can write good yuri and women can write bad yuri.

I think it's more of a meta fetish thing where having a woman writing about girls falling in love with girls is also hot.

Thank you for your contributions.
That's really dissapointing and one of the reason why I don't blindly buy unknown LN unless it's clearly yuri and not just subtext.

Are Slime and Tabitabi worth reading?
>>
>>3700464
Don't know about Tabitabi, but with Slime Taoshite last I looked it's basically a Manga Time Kirara series in light novel form. There are some girls who clearly have feelings for Azusa but she family-zones pretty mich every girl she meets.
>>
Shokei V4 is out.
>>
>>3700494
Then I think I'll leave it for when I'm done with my backlog
>>
>>3700464
Tabitabi is not really yuri, it does have gay characters and stories featuring gay characters getting together though

It has an anthology format of the MC going to different places and meeting different types of adventures, some fun, some tragic, but fery few romance aside from some girls who are into her, but most of those are barely recurring characters and can go several novels missing, though it seems in the very late novels they are a lot more common

Due to the format, the quality of every chapter changes a lot, some are really good but some are just boring, also the MC in the first novels is most of the time just looking and thinking about things that are happening but not really doing anything about it, later novels have her being in actual roles inside the stories.
>>
>>3700518
Yeah, closest point of comparison I can think of for it is Kino no Tabi, which also follows an anthology format,

Just finished v4.

Really good as usual. There were so many bombs that I don't even know where to start for discussion
>>
>>3700823
Just finished it myself. I'm a bit confused over Menou claiming she tried to kill Akari in the first loop, since in the first volume she talked about trying to save her before crumbling to salt. I guess killing her can be seen as saving her in that context, but it feels weird because Akari said "You should’ve just killed me! Why would you go and do something like this instead".
>>
>>3700838
Akari was probably misunderstanding cos all Menou said was about how she was trying to kill her.
Or it's something like she did go there with the intention to kill Akari while Akari is still Akari but Flare was a step ahead and it devolved into fighting Flare which Akari misunderstood as Menou attempting to protect/save her and dying for it
>>
>>3700399
Well, I didn't buy it blindly, I bought it because it received positive reviews here >>3625338 >>3628394
The first volume wasn't that bad, just very light on the yuri, unlike that post made it sound. Their relationship was solid at the end of the first volume so I expected more in the second one but I've been disappointed.
Like I said, I should be more selective and shouldn't judge with just a post from a very enthusiastic anon (though it went well with KokoNeko that I would have ignored otherwise), not even for the money but for the wasted time used to read 350 pages that had almost no yuri and that disgusted me with the het rape.
>>
>>3700863
There's also a good chance that Menou's revelation this book was just wrong and that when it came down to it, she picked Akari over Flare. So in the first timeline she really did commit taboo, and in this one she thinks she only fought to protect Akari because of her dumb pride.
More likely it's as you say though, that first timeline Menou saw not letting Akari get written into the Scriptures as saving her.
>>
Man, that scene with Pandæmonium near the end was chilling as fuck. But I probably need a proper reminder that it doesn't have human thoughts and is not a human

To be honest, I don't find any of this more blatlantly than alternate Elainas being in love with Saya, since they only had a difference of a few months, but even if Elaina herself is gay, I don't think it would be fair to the reader to call this a yuri story at all.

Pick one.

Elaina herself is gay, but she never goes into gay adventures.

It's kinda funny that the anime staff looked at like 9 or 10 novel volumes and their conclusion was that Elaina X Saya and Elaina interacting with the teachers still were the best arcs, most likely because it would create the illusion they are recurring characters in the series.

They're recurring in the sense that they show up every 2-3 volumes for an separate story. Fran got her backstory in Volume 8 and traveled around with Elaina in Volumes 9-10, so most of her stories are now focused on her travels with Elaina's mom. On the other hand, Saya only has a big meet-up with Elaina every five volumes or so (body swapping in 5, the lighthouse in 10, and the short stories in 15) so they're not going to meet up again for a few more volumes. And RIP Amnesia.
>>
>>3702112
I just think the staff realized this would have translated badly into an anime, the first volumes are intersting stories if you are reading them, since you have time to actually consider things, Elaina is too passive at those first volumes for the content to be really interesting, so the anime's staff mostly picked stories with "recurring" characters with actual connections to Elaina were Elaina has more of actual roles.

I bet with you the author regrets a lot not making Saya more of a side character.

I don't know about this. Saya is Jougi's favourite character to write. It's what makes the fact that she probably won't end up in a relationship with Elaina all the more tragic.
>>
>>3702128
I meant to say he regrets not making her an actual recurring companion rather than just his favorite character that shows up from time to time, but I think he is too stuck on the idea that Tabitabi should be about Elaina mostly travelling alone or without too much attachment to the person she is travelling with.

Flare has always been one of the most interesting characters to me, so her segments are always nice. The prologues generally seem to be my favorite parts, but this one was especially good from showing that Flarette really is following in Flare's footsteps. It seems implied that Light dying is what allows Guiding Camouflage to exist, so I guess that's what happens when a Pure Concept is killed and not harvested by the Faust: It becomes something everyone can kind of use? Does that mean we'll eventually learn about the source of Guiding Enhancement?
I was second anon and now that I've read the epilogue I agree with the anon I replied to.
>>
>>3702177
Eh, no, You don't get any conjuring system if they were killed before becoming Error. The concept becoming omnipresent in the process of becoming a human error is what allowed the phenomenon of becoming usable for everyone to begin with.

So there would be nothing left from Light unless Flare forced her to go human error
>>
>>3702177
Where do you get those conclusion from? Isn't the only reason Faust wanted to kill Akari after becoming human error because it would make [Time] available for everyone as a magic system?
If normal killing get you anything, they won't even need to bother with the risk and there would be too many new things around from the randoms that got killed
>>
>>3702261
>>3702263
Help me then, I must be speedreading. Momo reveals that capturing images was added to the scriptures about 20 years ago, around the same time that Light died. That seems way too coincidental to me. Around the same time(?) Flare develops Guiding Camouflage and basically no one else is able to use it well except Menou, and now we've learned that Sahara can somehow use Null despite only being rebuilt from murdered-kun's body. Shouldn't his Pure Concept have dissipated with his soul? And then there's Mistle Sword from volume 3 that makes me think of Consume, whom she also killed.
I guess a point against is that Flare wouldn't have gotten that nickname without already knowing GC and she was already known by Flare before killing Light.
>>
>>3702888

The rule for getting a system is just this anon.
>The concepts embedded in their souls were torn away when they lost control and became Human Errors. As soon as this happened, the concept contained within a single human became omnipresent in the world as a conjuring phenomenon.

>Pseudo-Concepts. These were conjurings received if one used material from a Pure Concept holder.
Manon (not Sahara) is a completely different case as you can see.

Also GC is just an advanced type of GE iirc, and that's something all humans here can do even before 4 errors' concept became omnipresent
>>
>>3702261
>>3702888
>“I’ll take her to the land of salt, make her turn into a Human Error, and dispose of her. Just like that other time.”
I think [light] did went error. Thus a new branch of magic relating to light became usable for everyone 20 years ago
But Manon is a completely different case like that anon said.

Basically, going Human Error = new Magic for everyone
Using a normal dead Isekaijin as material = new magic or magic item for one person
>>
Also I can't find the part where they mentioned how many get Isekai'd per year on average. Can anybody remember the number or the excerpt?

I think Kiki is probably busy with the other series, plus the Omae Gotoki manga that is skipping stuff to the get to more intersting dynamics of the series, the publisher most likely told him to prioritize.
>>
>>3703528
That's precisely my issue with the manga, the story kind of runs too fast between pages for me to enjoy them properly as I did in the LN. Some anon here even said that one of those Flum and Milkit moments from the end of the arcs was skipped in the manga.
>>
>>3703559
They skipped the part were the inn owners are attacked, Milkit is almost raped, Flum fights Dane's bandits, Sarah tries to stop her from murdering them but Flum tells her you can't give mercy to bandits and murders them. It's a good chapter that also gives a lot of development and characterization to Milkit, Flum and Sarah.

I think the issue was the big hiatus, Kiki also had stopped with the manga, so they probably though it would be better to rush things to bring attention to the manga again.

I honestly can't tell if the manga is skipping things at the start of Vol 2 of the LN because I also read the WN and it's somewhat different.

>>3703673
Not that I want to defend rape in writing but in this case it only went as far as the guys verbally saying they want to do it before Flum arrived to save the day.
Iirc the worst they did was just pushing her aside and she fell down with a bit of space between them, which is also where Flum punched her way through. She was still fully clothed.

The *good* part is from the fact that the almost-rapist gets viscerally obliterated (literally) by Flum which is on-brand for this series and its guro-horror-esque themes
>>
>>3703673
Lol, you should read this series and see what Flum does to anyone who touchs Milkit.

>>
>>3703851
Your brain is so rotten by reading isekai harem shit you automatically assume a fantasy setting means self inserting, utterly disgusting. Omae Gotoki is very good because it plays and twists with a lot of common tropes while at same time not being your retarded nice guy power fantasy, Flum wins but she has to work very hard to do so, most of the time going to the limit of her abilities. It seems to me you got butthurt that your bait about rape went nowhere since you clearly does not read this series.

>your bait about rape
Just to be clear, I'm >>3703673 and not >>3703851
I despise het rape so I'm going to complain about it everytime an author thinks it's something fitting in a yuri series. It's just a cheap and lazy, and disgusting, method to present a villain (even when it's just attempted) because they're unable to create an actual charismatic antagonist and everytime it's something that can be completaly avoided and wouldn't change the story.
I'm only reading the manga and I don't find it that interesting or even yuri enough (at least up to the 3rd volume) to buy the novels too. It's not the first time I've heard about rape in the novels, and someone also talked about side het so I don't think I'll ever bring myself to read them.
But yeah, I agree that calling it self-insert is very stupid.
>>
>>3704073
They are small time bandits anon, they kill the men, rape the women and then kill the women too, it's just how it is.

Yuri develops slowy but the romantic progress is there, the novel has several chapters dedicated only to Flum and Milkit romantic development, it goes the full course with kissing, marriage and sex. , there are 3 main yuri couples and some het side couples too, because not everyone is gay and the male side characters in this story are also very cool and not just dumbasses to make the MC look good.
>>
>>3704073
"MC saves a girl from attempted rape" is a very common trope even in het stories. It's just another variant of the romantic rescue subplot used as an excuse to make the girl fall in love with the MC or to make them share a romantic moment together afterwards. The side het too is pretty light and not particularly annoying.
>>
>>3704085
>the novel has several chapters dedicated only to Flum and Milkit romantic development
I’ve only read up to v2 but those chapters were super sweet, I’d kill for an entire volume of that
>>
>>3704085
>they kill the men, rape the women and then kill the women too
What I'm saying is you can remove the part in the middle and just leave "they kill men, and women too" and the story works the same, there is really no reason to include rape.

>>3704086
>is a very common trope
>used as an excuse to make the girl fall in love with the MC
I know and I dislike it everytime. I read yuri for the romance so "she saved me from rape so now I must fall in love with her" is too forced for me to enjoy it.

I didn't want to start a discussion about it btw, I know it goes full yuri later but I also know I won't be able to enjoy it when there is het and rape. I'll continue reading the manga even if I don't find it as interesting as fans say and see if it'll get me invested in the couples. For now, if they removed an unnecessary attempted rape, it's already +1 for the manga.
>>
>>3704086
Though this isn't really the case with Flum and Milkit, Milkit is too broken of a human being at first to even care about it.
>>3704090
I think it would be at least half of vol 3 since this time it mixes with both main stories, vol 4 is mostly one fight after the other, so there isn't much of it, though the few moments they have together sure are worth it.

Flum is just a horny teenager most of the time though.
>>
>>3704101
What you are imagining is not how the scene plays out at all, unless even the mention of rape is too much for you.
>>
>>3704101
Milkit is the plot's punching bag to motivate the MC to act, she goes through things worse than merely Implied rape like having been forced to eat poisoned food that ruins her face and later being physically tortured in a dungeon chamber by her old master who stomps and slices her. If you're jumping the ship at the first sign of a trope like that then here's a warning that this is one of the main mechanisms of the story for you.
>>
>>3704150
If you write like this people are going to assume she was raped, she never was.

Though yeah, she gets kidnapped a lot, but if you compare her suffering with what Flum goes throught it's literally nothing lol, interesting enough Milkit is pretty much a parallel between Cyrill and the old Flum, if you compare Flum's reaction to when she realizes Milkit is missing in Vol 2, were even her vision starts failing to show how upset she got, with how Cyrill reacts to Flum's suddenly leaving, you can easily see how both of them are emotional crutches for the heroine archtype, without them they start falling apart.

Also in vol 3 it doesn't really paint Milkit in a bad light, since she never breaks, it shows how much she changed too.

I've read Hikikomari 3.

>Komari's subordinates went from taking pics of her in a swimsuit in vol 1 to refusing to even get close to her on the beach in vol 3
That's some character development.

I expected Neria and Karura to join Komari's harem but I was wrong.
I also didn't expect Vil to reject Komari's kiss seeing how perverted she normally is.
If I have to point out something disappointing it's the fact Karura likes her male cousin but he's the villain of the series so probably it won't go anywhere and I hope it will downplayed as non romantic.

>>3704174
I don't have much of an opinion on Cyrill, from what I remember she only felt sorry for Flum because Jean did something as extreme as selling her as a slave. If Flum remained in the hero's party then Cyrill wouldn't feel guilty at all and keep treating her coldly and with a stare of scorn like pic related

Cyrill and Flum were "best friends" for the most part of their journey, the only reason Cyrill treated her like this was because Jean conviced her to.

Yeah it was good. There wasn't that much action this time but we got so much new info that I don't really mind. Kinda confused about some stuff but I will go through vol. 2-4 again before picking up vol. 5 to get a better understanding of the information.
ALSO, and I don't mean to an a-hole, if somebody is wondering to pick this up because of yuri - don't, I wouldn't call it Yuri, at least not yet. There is a possibility that we will get there someday but at this point in time this isn't really a yuri story, it's more about friendship. But it's not really a problem because the story is engaging and there are many interesting charachters. Feels like the real ride is only just beginning so yeah, really am looking forward to what happens next and hope that eventually this will get a legit yuri-tag which would make it a must ready IMO.
>>
>>3704648
Millicent? If she's become the head of the 5th army and will be a recurring character I hope to see her fall for Komari as well.
It's weird because I generally don't like harem but this series makes me want to see any girl fall for Komari, maybe because Komari is so dumb she deserves it.
I also want to see some action with the empress that should be a turbo lesbian but there hasn't been much until now, it's a waste because Flate would let her fuck her anytime.
And on the contrary I'm not looking forward to Komari's mother's backstory since we already know she left the empress for a man.

The quality of the stories has tanked so fucking hard. It's been like this for about four volumes now and it doesn't look like it's recovering, I'm not sure if I want to continue it. They all feel so pointless, most of them revolve around dumb shit happening and then Elaina getting some character infodumping her the entire plot, and then you get an extremely underwhelming resolution.
After finishing "Things Unseen" I was left thinking, "...So what, that's it?".
How the fuck did this get to almost 20 volumes?

Imo these "MC goes around exploring the world" stories always fall prey to their own formula sooner or later. The episodic format makes it so that there's no clear end goal or ongoing sense of emergency between the arcs, also they are only allowed to settle down by the end of the story so their relationship with other characters aren't allowed to go too far for the sake of continuing the lone wolf journey toward... whatever the writer comes up with next
>>
>>3705366
"Walking the Earth" stories need to have an interesting world more than anything. Like Vampire Hunter D where things have also been formulaic but the world is so over the top and pulpy that you still keep reading to know what comes up next.

Nah, they are hit or miss, some are good, some are bad, it's not really consistent at all, I still didn't finish V7, the story about the fake witch was kinda funny and had some nice twists, thought in the end you could easily see how it would end by just connecting the dots of what the fake witch does and what the thieves need, the one with the poison mage and the medusa witch is really mostly just a infodumb and Elaina also pretty much does nothing, it was just boring.

But yeah, the author really found out the formula to at least keep the volumes going and whoever buys the volumes obviously does not care much about it, I'm pretty sure the author will continue until the publisher says no more.

That was so fucking awkward, especially since Chiki knew all along that she was fucking her little (half?)sister. I will admit the thought passed my mind back in vol 1 when I saw the illustration where they both had the same eye and hair color, but back then I dismissed it as Fry having a bad case of sameface syndrome.
Also I have no idea what that crazy woman is doing. She gets all pissed to Umi because "waaaah why u no trust me" and then she flirts with Takasora(whose "love" for Umi I sincerely never believed in because her motivations always seemed extremely shallow).
Poor Umi can't catch a break anyway, she should just tell everybody to go fuck themselves and start a new life with Tarumi.

Kanon thought she would be able to carry out her slow life in this way forever, but despite her best efforts, that would not happen...

I skimmed the first few chapters and it didn't seem like it did anything special at the start. Woman dies, goddess talks to her, she gets a skill, get reincarnated, tries out her magic, goes to a guild, finds she has enormous magic power, goes on a quest, timeskip 20 years, jokes that she never got married or had kids because she was too busy (but really wants a cute daughter who doesn't give her too much work), and then gets forced to take in a 14-year old elf as her apprentice. That's where I stop skimming, but I assume this is the main love interest going forward if the yuri tag is correct.

This slice of life travelling journey would benefit greatly if Elaina had Saya accompany her as her apprentice or something. A novel with the dynamics of --for the lack of a better example-- Spice and Wolf but yuri would work wonders where two main characters instead of just one travel around, this way even if the current plot became somewhat boring the active relationship and interactions between them would still be interesting to see since it's in constant and recurring development.
>>
>>3706593
The truth is that Elaina is just a device for the author to write an anthology, I'm pretty conviced if it was up only to him, he wouldn't even have Elaina and just have the stories being told by a different POV each story.

I do think the popularity of Elaina and Saya in the anime made him somewhat regret this though, but it's also too late for him to change it.

Hataraku watashi to kanojo no dousei was so damn good.
The stories from the "big names" in the Kanojo anthology aren't worth 1/1000 of this story from an unknown author. It's so well written, MC had an incredible growth, and obviously the yuri. Definitely a must-read.

Yeah I read this too. The style reminds me a bit of Iruma, quite poetic. Especially good considering it was a web novel (and when I checked the web version it seems much the same at least on a quick look).

Checked Narou webnovel version, it had no yuri-relevant tags. Only ones that really meant anything to me were the “OP protagonist” and “slow-life” tags

Also, Tsuzuri posted some Vol. 8 Hikikomari spoilers

Finished Komari 8. Biggest cliffhanger of the series so far. Personally I think it's about time Komari starts to become more honest and just accept Ville, but the turning point on that might be coming soon with the revelations about the latter

Everything goes bananas. I just wanted to write a short summary but I realized that it's impossible with how much shit happens, so I ended up writing a very long one:
Takasora decides to become a third wheel and follows the other two to the hotel. Chiki shows a favorable attitude towards Takasora and tells her to not give up on Umi because she believes that she and Umi are gonna break up eventually. Takasora has to watch the other two flirting and being lovey-dovey and feels despair and loneliness, thinking that this is hell. She also notices that the relationship between the two seems more like a parent-child thing, and when pointed out to Umi the latter tells her that in front of Chiki she becomes like a baby. Takasora is left wondering what that means. Chiki also reveals her age to Umi: she's 21, while Umi is 17 so there's a 4 years gap. This also seems to be a matter of concern for Chiki, because Umi doesn't think seriously about the future, while she believes that they also have to consider the implications that being older means that she's probably going to die before her.
The next day Chiki has a private conversation with Takasora while Umi is sleeping. She confesses that she finds Takasora cute but she will restrain herself because Umi will cry otherwise, also candidly admits that in the past she had a threesome with 2 other girls but those ended up fighting over her and after that accident she stopped having two girls at the same time. She asks Takasora for her number and reveals her real name (Chitaira Shiho) but she also asks to not tell Umi, because it's a "secret".
Few days later, Chiki/Shiho and Umi have their first "official" daytime date, Umi still doesn't trust anything Chiki says and the latter gets really pissed, saying that they might as well break up if things are gonna stay that way between them. Umi gets terrified and apologizes, but Chiki tells her that apologizing is useless when she won't even listen.
>>
>>3711795
She then decides to de-escalate the situation, takes Umi to a jewelry and buys her a ring. She tells her the ring is worth 50 million yen and that Umi can do anything she wants with it, because she will never regret having spent that money for her. Umi wonders if the ring truly is worth that much, and she won't stop asking other people about how much they believe the ring is worth throughout the entire volume. She also doesn't know where to put it and just wears it on her middle finger(lol).
Next day, Shiho asks Takasora out, they're officially going out as friends and the former seems to genuinely enjoy their time together but she also flirts with her and it's hard to believe that she isn't intentionally trying to make Takasora fall for her, especially with her "casual" physical approaches and comments. Takasora got rejected and ignored by Umi so her tsun-tsun quickly leans into the dere territory for Shiho, who's beautiful, attentive and showers her with kindness, and the two keep going out behind Umi's back.
Takasora asks Shiho why she seems so convinced that she and Umi are going to break up, Shiho keeps it vague and tells her that she just knows, because according to her Umi is unable to hurt people.
Meanwhile she keeps asking Takasora to be friends with Umi, takes her to a book store and gives Takasora some novels asking her to teach Umi how to read them.
In a conversation, Shiho tells Takasora that the ring she bought Umi is actually worth 5k yen, because, even if she would be more than happy to buy her a ring that truly is expensive, doing so now would put Umi in danger. At the same time if she didn't lie about the price Umi would believe that Shiho doesn't value her much since she completely lacks confidence. She also seems worried about the fact that Umi also lacks "aggressivity".
Takasora keeps thinking that Shiho's attitude towards Umi is more akin to a parent, even if there are definitely other feelings mixed in.
>>
>>3711797
Umi decides that she wants to know Chiki's real name. She remembers a conversation where the latter mentioned Hino's house, so she goes there hoping to find an answer, even if she's scared because she believes that Chiki will get angry at her for prying into her life. There, she meets Nagafuji, Hino and the maid and thanks to them she realizes that the world is also made of nice people and not just the shitty people she had to deal with before meeting Chiki. To defend the privacy of her customer however, Hino only tells Umi Chiki's last name. Umi however has a realization: that name appeared on Takasora's phone screen when they got back from the hotel that night.
She decides to follow Takasora(who has been acting strange in the past few days) and just as she suspected, she was going to meet with Shiho.
Takasora is nervous because their meeting spots are getting closer and closer to the place where she and Umi live.
Shiho receives a phone call (probably from Hino) and when she gets back she excitedly comments on how proud she is of Umi, with Takasora noticing how Shiho can barely contain her joy.
Shiho then "casually" takes Takasora's hand and immediately releases it because "she mistook her for Umi". At this point Takasora has completely fallen for Shiho, and the feelings of despair over always being friendzoned combined with the sense of guilt over Umi push her further into the hell, and finally asks Shio what it means "to become a baby". Shiho understood everything and gives Takasora the final blow, asking her if she also wants to become one. Just as Takasora is answering they get interrupted by Umi, who's about to go nuclear.
Shiho however fends off her accusations by saying that she's just seeing a friend, that by the same logic Umi is also cheating on her because she lives and sleeps with another girl, but of course it can't be because Takasora and Umi are friends, right? Because if they weren't she'd also get angry.
>>
>>3711799
Umi knows that Shiho is just using logical fallacies to win the argument, but the latter is so relentless that she doesn't even give Umi time to think properly. As a result she can't find a rebuttal and just cries, feeling that she can't win against her and that she found herself trapped in hell.
They get interrupted by Umi's mother, Izumi, who was taking a stroll, and she recognizes Shiho. Shiho also greets her and says it's been a while since they last saw each other, so she's a bit surprised that she was able to recognize her. Izumi replies that she recognized her from the eyes. Umi finally notices a detail she always overlooked: the three of them have the same eye color. Izumi introduces Shiho and Umi finally learns her full name. Big shock revelation, Shiho(whose first name means "tide") is Umi's big sister and she knew all along. See you in the next volume.


tl;dr crazy horny lesbians do crazy horny lesbian things, everybody suffers, surprise incest and there's no way this is going to have a happy ending.

I can't believe how much I wrote, but I was very confused myself and writing everything down also helped me wrap my head around this insane turn of events.

It's actually a very interesting and well written story, just very painful and angsty. I'm actually glad that I can read some dark and gloomy yuri that doesn't contain edgy shit nor het, it's such a rare occurrence.

Sounds great, it's how drama has to be, my guess is that Adashima more dramatic undertones made Iruma want to explore this for real.
>>
>>3711805
>I'm actually glad that I can read some dark and gloomy yuri that doesn't contain edgy shit nor het
None of what you mentioned sounds well-written, and you mentioning that "glad it doesn't contain edgy shit nor het" shows how low your standards are as long as it's dramatic and not complete garbage. not having het in a yuri drama should be bare minimums and I wouldn't talk much about edgy shit, do you mean murder and the sort? I'd say straight lying to someone in their face just to fuck their mental is pretty edgy.
>>
>>3711811
You're just judging a whole story from a summary of volume 2, while you clearly don't even know what happens in vol 1. If you're such a baby that you can't deal with drama that's fine, there's plenty of lighthearted LNs where nothing bad happens. But don't act like people have "low standards" because they enjoy a story that apparently hurts your sensitivity.

>erotic dreams
Which volume does this happen in?
>>
>>3711799
Actually some people have noted that if you carefully look at the dialogue when they both leave the house, the day that Takasora asks about becoming a baby doesn't seem to be the day at the very end. It's actually the day that Umi goes to see Hino, hence the phone call and meaning there's been some time in between that and the date that Umi interrupts. . There's definitely some trickery with the two viewpoints not matching up as one would assume. Really nice summary though.

>>3711805

Woah, you're right. I was confused because the events are a bit mixed up, but now that you mention it it makes perfect sense because when Umi asks Hino about Chiki's real name, Hino leaves the room for a while, and during the phone call it looks like it's Shiho herself who's telling Hino to just reveal the last name. So yeah. In a scenario where turns out that Takasora said yes and Shiho refused, their reactions at the end when Umi finds them would make a lot more sense, especially how Shiho keeps being upset that Umi doesn't trust her and telling her that there's nothing to cry about.
Second scenario is that Takasora held back her feelings and said no, which would still mean that nothing bad actually happened, though that wouldn't explain why she stays silent when Shiho asks her to confirm that she and Umi are good friends.
The final scenario is that Takasora said yes and Shiho said sure, why not which would prove Umi's suspicions right, but that would actually be the most boring option now that the order of events has changed.
The first scenario also opens to a rather dramatic ending where Shiho disappears, Umi is stuck with Takasora who refuses to tell her the truth about that day and she's left forever wondering how much the ring truly was worth.
>>
>>3711799
>At this point Takasora has completely fallen for Shiho
I hope you messed up the names because I can't see how this makes any sense. Takasora was in love with Umi and I can't believe this shit happens.
I thought Chiki would have made a move on Takasora but Takasora falling for it wasn't even an option in my mind.
Also I can't understand a single thing that Chiki does. She accepted to date Umi but it seems she's doing anything she can to be hated.

However I also disliked the spoilers of the first volume and then I ended up loving it when I read it so I'm gonna wait until I'll get to read the second volume before of having an opinion about this drama.
I'm not complaining about the retroactive incest though, even if I once again fail to see how it's possible knowing their first encounter.

>I hope you messed up the names because I can't see how this makes any sense. Takasora was in love with Umi and I can't believe this shit happens.
It's not like her love was that deep, she basically just fell for her because she was pretty and had big tits. Takasora is forced by Chiki to confess while the three of them are taking a bath in the hotel, and Umi of course rejects her, she blushes and gets embarrassed but says that she loves Chiki. Things between them become awkward after that and they pretty much stop talking to each other, while Chiki keeps treating Takasora with kindness, invites her out and and tells her the things that she wants to hear.

>She accepted to date Umi but it seems she's doing anything she can to be hated
More like, she keeps asking Takasora to be friends with Umi but she basically does everything to keep the two apart. The timeline of events is a bit confused, but I think that she started asking Takasora out after that accident during her date with Umi, so who knows what she's actually thinking.

>even if I once again fail to see how it's possible knowing their first encounter
There's a lot of foreshadowing throughout vol 1, including Chiki explicitly telling Umi "we'll say we're sisters" when they enter the ramen shop at night, but if you're just talking about their first encounter, literally the first thing Umi thinks about Chiki is that she was more beautiful than her mother. Also when she enters the restroom she basically says that she never really looks at herself in the mirror. From Chiki's part, she definitely knew that her sister was out there somewhere, because she remembers Izumi(so she was old enough to remember her clearly when she last saw her), so it's entirely possible that she knew Umi from when the latter was still a baby/toddler(maybe the two used to play in the playground where she takes Umi at the end of vol 1)
>>
>>3712010
Ok, these spoilers make it sounds better.

As for their first encounter I didn't mean how Umi couldn't recognize her but the encounter itself. Must I believe it was by chance that she suddenly met her sister she didn't see in years like that and immediately planned to buy her body? Or was she following her from before and it was premeditated?
>>
>>3712008
It's not as if Akari is any more competent with her memories. I mean, she only seemed competent at first because she knew exactly how things were going to play out, but the moment things started to go differently from how she knew them, she became quite useless again. And, hell, if you've read up to volume 4 then you know this already. Akari was quite retarded in volumes 2 to 4.
>>
>>3712038
>Must I believe it was by chance that she suddenly met her sister she didn't see in years like that and immediately planned to buy her body? Or was she following her from before and it was premeditated?
I think she lived in the same area and she happened to meet her because up until that moment Umi really never spent much time outside(she mentions that she always goes back home right away after school). Besides, unlike Umi she has a really sharp sight so she must have noticed her from a distance.
It's strongly implied from the prologue of both vol 1 and 2 that Chiki has more than few screws loose(just like their mother after all) and that she faces problems with quick reasoning and immediately acts on it no matter how dangerous the solution might be. I think that she wasn't originally planning to buy her body, but Umi didn't immediately trust her and thought that there was a catch behind Chiki treating her for dinner, so in order to have an excuse to give her money she asked for her body in exchange, believing that doing such a thing would save Umi and make her smile. It's still unclear why she didn't immediately reveal herself as her sister, but I don't think it was simply because she thought "wow my little sister sure grew up well, I wanna tap that".

JNC staff have mentioned that titles are important for algorithms on sites like Amazon.

Using certain keywords, phrases or making them sound similar to other series (particularly popular ones) can add additional sales as casuals discover it.

Seven Seas seems to take it particularly far. Trying to piggyback off other titles.

>“By the way, Elaina.” Avelia looked at me and said, “My sister is here in this city now, too. Naturally, since we’re traveling together…”
>“…Oh, that’s right.”
>I hadn’t seen her even once while I’d been here, though.
>“Do you want to see her? If you like, I could bring her with me tomorrow or something…”
>“No, that’s fine.”
>Then I shook my head slowly and said to her, “There’s nothing quite like the sense of distance that I feel from someone who I would like to meet again someday, when I want to see them but can’t.”
>If we were close enough to meet whenever we wanted, I would probably become just like the customers who’d gotten their hearts ensnared by the catnip plot.
>So for now, I would just take it easy and look forward to the day that fate brought us together again.
Does anyone else think that the author went through a phase where he was setting up Amnesia to be the main romantic interest? Reading this and watching the first drama CD really makes it seem like she has the more romantic relationship with Elaina than Saya(ya).

Worse than Picnic or Adashima, but better than Arioto or Watanare.
>>
>>3713120
That looks like a literally who series list desu

>>3713124
Not very good

The second one was better than the first I feel but they're both good so far.

How outdated is this? Is the digital included? What about manga versions?
>>
>>3713178
>>3713180
Probably an aggregate of know data, though I'm not sure for example if this data is updated with every volume avaliable.

I'm not surprised that Otherside Picnic is doing so well though, 70k for each volume, if those numbers include all 7 volumes of course, this series has got even toned down spin offs for children.

It's difficult to say anything because we don't know the source, we don't know how recenet the data is, we don't know if the manga's volumes are included, they all have a different number of volumes, some have an anime and other no, but I'm happy to see Urasekai doing well.
When they announced WataNare's 200k like it was super popular I thought it was a lot for a LN but now I see Urasekai with more than double the copies with less than double the volumes, and an uneventful series like Slime selling 2 millions.

>>3713120
Is Detarame really yuri or is it just... detarame? Doesn't it have a male mc?

Finished KokoNeko 2.
The author went full creep with pantsu, lolicon and boobs groping but everything is yuri so I'm not complaining.
It's very nice to read stories where every girl is into girls so you don't have to keep worrying and can enjoy it fully.
Akira is a slut, she said she was serious about marrying Aanya and then she fucks the first girl she meets.

>>3713298
For yuri LNs these are good numbers, but for average LNs? Other than slime, everyone else is in pretty bad state, especially if you have an anime
>>
>>3713326
Only the most popular stuff like Damachi does 200k to 300k for each volume, the actual average of the LN and N (since otherside isn't published as a LN) market is really low, like 10 to 20k for each volume.

Not counting anime adaptation stuff, since those Kimitsu no Yaiba LNs did almost a million each.
>>
>>3713180
The data comes from official announcements from the series' publishers on e.g. twitter or promotional materials. They are all outdated in that sense.

Taking watanare as an example, digital sales are included (紙・電子累計) while manga sales are counted separately.

Nice to see another based Witch fan.
I don't know where you got the idea that Detarame has a male MC. The only male character is the villain who so far has appeared in just one scene and all his underlings have been girls.

Maybe you're thinking of something else with detarame in the title. This is the protagonist, and as of volume 2 she has two girls with it bad for her.

I am not talking about those big shots, I am talking about 1m line, as in if your total don't reach at least a million, it's not considered decent enough
Only slime 300 hitting it shows that how niche yuri novels still are even now desu
>>
>>3713613
Ok, I read the plot on a site that misgendered the MC, thank you for pointing it out. I ignored it because of that and the promotion made using a vtuber so I never really looked into it, now I've seen some reviews but the mention of yuri is minimal. Would you elaborate more on the level of yuri there is in it? I don't mind spoilers.
>>
>>3713633
>as in if your total don't reach at least a million, it's not considered decent enough
By whom? You?
Take a look at this site https://ln-news.com/page/circulation
Mind you, not all publishers decide to release cumulative circulation numbers of their LNs and even when they do they don't always update those numbers either so the list is by no means supposed to be accurate nor complete, but it gives you a general idea.
There are literally thousands of LNs in circulation, but according to you only those that reach the 1m line are considered "decent enough", so, according to this list only ~200 works are decent enough(even less if you want to take out the "big shots" and only consider the works that aren't super popular) while the rest isn't. This list also only seems to count works that have at least reached the 200k mark(little over 300 works, notice how they also added Watanare), so I guess that the LN market must be some money laundering scheme or something because it wouldn't explain why they would keep publishing so many works that don't reach the line that according to you makes them "decent".
>>
>>3713648
Chill anon, I am just saying what the nips said, 1m line is popular enough line according to them
Though it usually just means that the LN in question has survived enough to have 10+ volumes. Nothing special.

Otherside and AdaShima will likely hit it soon enough. Not sure about watanare and shokei shoujo though, here is hoping anime boost is great for the latter
>>
>>3713637
Nothing too dramatic or romantic so far which is probably why reviews didn't mention it much. Two girls, one per volume, appear to be into the protagonist (the one in the second more obviously) and the second ends with her announcing that she will have both of them at her side when she is happy in the future so it might be heading into a yuri harem direction. Don't go into it expecting any straightforward romance though.
>>
>>3713660
I don't think this 1M line means much to be honest, you can reach it with 5 volumes, you can reach it with 10 volumes, you can reach it with 20 volumes, what really shows how popular you are is how much you are currently selling.

Getting an anime adaptation is most likely a signal you reached some metric, though of course the market change and so does this metric, may be lower or higher.

>>3713633
That the thing people are saying to you, most works in the market do not do much better than 10k or 20k for each volume, including yuri works, those yuri works with data here like Otherside and Watanare are far beyond niche market numbers, though they still are far behind the most popular works.

Though yes, Yuri is still a niche market, it's a growing niche market thankfully, but even works for niche demographics can become popular, it's what happened with Yuru Yuri a decade ago.

We also have worldwide sales to consider too, Adashima and Otherside are published in several countries, so likely to be more profitable than what you would expect, aside from the licensing which already is a fee by itself.

I bet most of you pirate stuff anyway.

In that case I'll wait until there will be more explicit developments.

I'm new to the genre. What are some LNs which are considered must read or the very best in the genre? Untranslated stuff are fine too
>>
>>3714269
Otherside Picnic and The Executioner and Her Way of Life are the two that are generally considered must-reads currently. Anything else discussed in these threads is probably more up to personal taste:
>>
>>3714344
Oh, also Adachi and Shimamura.
>>
Omae Gotoki / Roll Over and Die
>>
I still think Sexiled is underrated. It's fun and gay and not too in your face about its message.
>>
>>3714383
Sorry but Sexiled is about as subtle as a rock to the head
>>
>>3714269
The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and Genius Young Lady is also very good

There's also Regarding Saeki Sayaka if you liked Bloom Into You
>>
>>3714269
I enjoyed Puppetmaster as a short single volume, it won some prizes in japan too
>>
Warlords of Sigrdrifa: Rusalka is recently released in the US so I wonder if there is any shower (or bathing in general) scenes with the novel or not and which characters are in it? I know that in Japan it came with shower-themed bonus chapters (PS: I'm not Watermaiden15 I'm just another bathfag to clarify).
>>
>>3714383
>not too in your face about its message
How much more "in your face" can it get? I enjoyed it and would recommend it, but let's not pretend it ever lets you forget it's all about sexism. There's another story actually about a girl reincarnated into an otome game world trying to romance the villainess that referenced the sorceress Laplace.

Not that anon but the author could have written the male characters as they normally are in fantasy/isekai light novels without making them mustache-twirling villains and it would have done a better job of showing the rampant misogyny in the medium.

And hell, she didn’t even include any depictions of the rape or women being sold into sex slavery which is just treated as a normal thing in the genre.

[Vessel] is a girl? I read some spoilers that she and [Star] are another pair
