Hey guys, it’s Ike. February is the month of Valentine’s day, and I know how much you guys were excited for that day. Shoutouts to all the single people out there. There are three anthologies in this list because I thought that since this is the month of love, I might as well give you as much yuri as I can.
Other than that, please keep in mind that all of these are my personal opinions. Take everything with a grain of salt. It doesn’t have to be a yuri made within this month, just what I’ve been reading this month. Let’s get started.
6. Yurigurashi by Kurukuru Hime
Yurigurashi is a collection of short stories all about women living with their female companions. Whether it’s about living with your girlfriend, or living with your girlfriend, or living with… death? Every one of these stories are cute, light, and fluffy.
My favorite is chapter four with death. It’s a bit of a change because it wasn’t about a girl living with her girlfriend, and the two main characters didn’t end up with each other.
The art is alright, but it does shine in its color schemes. The enhances the light and fluffy feeling this manga delivers. It’s a nice read that won’t leave you with battle scars.
Limerence is yet another anthology, consisting of original Chinese yuri manga. This one I discovered on my discord (which you can check down in the description below). I liked most of the stories in this one, the most disappointing being the one about the girl who was reincarnated as a horse. It would’ve been great if she was just a normal horse, but no, she’s gotta be a magical horse who gets a humanoid form.
My favorite one is the last story and that’s mainly because of the art. I’m a bit confused about the dialogue towards the end between the bean sprout and the bat, but that’s just me. For me personally, I will have to look further into this artist and check out their other works if I can.
Other than that, these are fun to read through, although I don’t know about the third and second to last stories. Those are just plain weird.
4. Lilium Terrarium by ED
This is technically an omnibus, not an anthology, but it’s still a collection of short stories so there you go. Compared to the previous two, this one is my favorite. The color choices and the clean art style is simply aesthetic. The way the mangaka makes almost everything blue in the first story draws a lot of attention to the blushes. (It brings me back to a certain NSFW yuri I had put on the list back in October 2018.)
That being said, the first story is pleasant, although I’m a bit on the fence about this whole “acting gay” thing. I do like the resolve and I’m very excited to see the rest of the manga. By the way, it’s a different color on the next story. (At this point, I might as well buy myself a coloring book because of how much I love colors.) It only has three chapters, but that only means it’s the perfect time to catch up.
3. Only My Little Demon by Deadnoodles
Here I thought I was over putting in Love Live doujins into my list, but I have a big love for Yohaneko Training Diary. This isn’t about BDSM, which is unfortunate. It is about a succubus and also, Riko’s got a nice looking tail.
There’s really nothing else to say about this. It’s a simple story about a girl who’s getting the SUCC by a succubus. Lots of sex, fun times for everyone.
2. Galaxy Flight Midnight by Natomo
This is yet another Love Live doujin, but it caught me instantly just from the cover. It’s so 90’s shoujo that it brings me back (and this is embarrassing for me) to the days when I used to watch Fushigi Yugi as a kid. It’s unfortunate that the feel of the cover doesn’t fully translate to the story, but either way, I love it.(
Anyways, the style of this story is yet another favorite of mine. It’s just people doing mundane activities, but for Nico and Eli, it’s a special memory to keep because they have a special relationship with each other. It’s well into their adult life and here is Nico thinking that she’ll never see Eli again. Then one fateful night, she finds Eli sleeping on the bench in a park. From the dialogue to the mundane activities, I thought this manga was very human. They feel like actual humans instead of characters.
1. Kiss And White Lily by Canno
Honestly, I took a huge dose of Kiss And White Lily and that’s the main reason why it’s on this list. It’s also been updated and we’re at this point where everything is fine and dandy. It’s so romantic, happy and straight up adorable. If you haven’t started on Kiss And White Lily, then you have a long, but enjoyable read, my friend.
The story is about a model student named Shiramine who one day got her throne toppled by the genius Kurosawa. While on her way to defeat Kurosawa, there are several connected stories that happens within the all-girl Seiran Academy. So I guess it can kind of be counted as an omnibus.
So that’s it for this list. What’s your favorite read this month? Be sure to comment down below. If you guys are interested in any of these manga, you can take a look in the description for the link.
