百合 manga/novel discussion

Ahh I always forget that’s YH - ironic, since when I read it, I was grumpy about the lack of romance. I’ve been thinking of getting the physicals. Are they regular B6 size, or the slightly larger size?

女友だち I found kinda dry when I tried it, but I wonder if I’d do better with it now that I can read more comfortably

I’ve been kinda curious to reread ロンリーガール to see how I feel about it

Anyway, all of 3 titles - that’s impressive :stuck_out_tongue:

Looks like 5 1/8 x 7 1/8 inches. I just happened to have a tape measure handy.

I did say I don’t really care for YH. :joy:

女同士とかありえないでしょと言い張る女の子を、百日間で徹底的に落とす百合のお話 | L28 I found relatively easy. I read it through Kindle unlimited (non-Japan account). It was somewhat fun, but pretty trashy. And those girls don’t care about consent. I was not inclined to read the other books in the series or by the author.

https://learnnatively.com/search/jpn/books/?type=light_novel,novel&ntags=yuri&max=29&sort=rating other books are either by the same author, or one seems to have a similar plot with similar problems or they have reviews that are kind of meh.

I’ll try 〆切前には百合が捗る | L29 if it wins the nomination in the Yuri book club (I think they are voting this week).

Most of the yuri LNs haven’t been graded yet, and I’m only starting to explore this myself, but a few possibilities:

Some things from my wishlist:

Thanks for the replies, but all of that seems to be featuring schoolgirls. I kind of expected that since those stories are both common and more simple. I think I might try 女同士とかありえないでしょと言い張る女の子を、百日間で徹底的に落とす百合のお話 since I read it eventually changes to a college setting, and あなたに恋してもいいですか which is both very low level and features adults.

For 〆切前には百合が捗る , I will read it if it wins the voting, but I don’t really want to read age gap.

Thanks again for taking the time to share recs

It looks like you’re safe so far, based on the voting 笑.

As an aside, that anthology you mentioned sounds kinda interesting b/c of the essays. I’m usually fairly uncomfortable with yandere stuff (it depends), but haven’t really seen any “essays about XYZ genre” sorta stuff b4. If you made an informal book club thread, I’d be down to try the essays together.

It occurred to me that me (and Luna as well from what I found when I tried searching posts) are using yuri Navi but there is no official introduction to it in the thread even though it’s really relevant and good!

So anyone looking for recommendions yuri Navi is great! Plus it look sput for sales too lol

They technically have a site yurinavi.com but I mainly look through their Twitter posts for reccs that look interesting

Mainly I look at it when ppl link it in the sale and promotion hunting thread (they even have a sale / free books page: 百合漫画 セール・無料本情報(6/12更新) | 百合ナビ)… their twitter is great for finding new series!

Fwiw I finished 〆切前には百合が捗る | L29 and really enjoyed it!! Definitely doesn’t have the issues that say 安達としまむら or 週に一 have. Overall would recommend to anyone who isn’t totally put off by the age gap
