Yuri Manga and Anime Fanlisting

OYTPTGMAYA-e1461416904969Only ☆You~Anata to Watashi no Futari Bocchi Keikaku  (オンリー☆ユー ~あなたと私の二人ぼっち計画~) starts off with a cute-ish premise. What if, the Student Council President decides, girls who are loners are paired up together and this way they won’t be alone?

Okay, this is not the worst premise in the world.

The Student Council has rings made up. Girls inducted into the “Only You” Project are paired off with matched rings. The rings will give them a shock if they get further than 5 meters away from each other and can’t be removed. Oh and they can’t leave the school premises either.

Okay, this is the worst premise in the world.

I mean, in two pages, we go from, kind of sweet, sort of dorky, to coercion and torture and forced confinement? What the…?

From there, the story devolves into mismatched communication styles resolved by screamed confessions and running after one another tearfully.

Of course, friendship is never the point of these pairings. The rings are the dead giveaway. The President isn’t helping girls not be alone, she’s matchmaking.

The couples all get together in the end. I’m sure you’re all as surprised as I was.

mekimeki’s art is competent and moe, as one might expect. The girls are emotionally tortured over things that are never resolved, except that now that they have someone who loves them, it’s all okay. As one might expect.

Ratings:

Art – 7
Story – 5 Predictable, sometimes getting a little too close to creepy
Characters – I remember one character’s name. Of about 8 characters
Service – 3 Not nearly as bad as I feared
Yuri – 2 Yes, but no

Overall – 5

If the lesson “being with someone, no matter how incompatible, is better than being alone,” resonates with you, this book is definitely your jam.

Here are the full text and graphics I used in my presentation at the Tokyo Comics Showcase, Vol. 1, on May 3, 2016 as part of Tokyo Rainbow Pride. If you have 8 minutes, you can understand where Yuri came from and the why of what you’re looking at. If you’d like to use the […]

Yuri Manga Ohkami-san to Keruberosu (大上さんとケルベロスゥ!) by Naraba is a vaguely mythology-themed take on school life Yuri. The July issue of Comic Yuri Hime hit shelves this week. Volume 6 of Kuzushiro’s Kimi no Tamenara Shineru (姫のためなら死ねる) is out and wacky as ever. Toaru Kekkon (とある結婚) by Kumaba Ruri is a fictionalized story of a German-American woman and […]

In Volume 1 of HaruYuri (ハルユリ), Ichijou Ranko is a boyish, charming young woman and unknown to herself, all the girls fall for her instantly. But none of them go as far as Sakurano Komachi who, on the very first day of school, kisses her and lamprey-like attaches herself to Ranko possessively. What follows is a […]

Buenas estoy de regreso >w<, hace unas semanas me dió por ponerme un poco al día material nuevo yuri, me encontre un one-shot yuri llamado “Novio” que me llamo la atención así que se me antojo editarlo, soy consciente que tendría que seguir editando material retrasado pero caí en la tentación e_e llevo editándolo desde que comenzó la semana.
He mirado por todas partes y no estaba traducido por nadie antes en todo el mundo google (espero que sea así y no llevarme un chascazo). Aunque la edición era bastante fácil, la traducción se me atraganto en algunas partes ya que no tenía ni pies ni cabeza. Y bueno aquí les dejo el one-shot, que lo disfruten )
Risa es una chica que no puede vivir sin un novio pero está en una preparatoria
femenina, así que convence a su compañera de clase Yuuko-chan para que se
convierta en su “novio”.

Hasta Pronto,
Sheena.

So used am I to feeling frustration born of absolute disinterest in hideously boring characters in previous Hirao Auri manga series, that reading Hirao Auri’s new manga, Oshi ga Budokan Ittekuretara Shine, Volume 1(推しが武道館いってくれたら死ぬ) instilled in me a wholly new feeling – frustration because I actually care about the characters! It’s a completely different feeling, I […]

It is with great pleasure that I thank Tachibana Remi-san for sponsoring today’s review!

Right off the bat, this is pretty much the best […]

Q: When is a Yuri manga not a Yuri manga? A: When it has no Yuri. This may seem like a zen koan, but it is in fact, the subject of our attention today. Futaribeya (ふたりべや) frequently appears on Yuri manga lists, and yet, has no actually Yuri beyond a tense moment in a single […]
