Hey guys, it’s Ike. So, April has been rather stale in terms of yuri. How stale? Well, according to my twitter, I read over 500 chapters of regular manga in three days. There just hasn’t been a lot of compelling yuri and all the ones I’m following are on the slow side. But hey, here we are. You see the title. Eventually, I did find five.
Long story short, Kase-san is a great read. Throughout the five volumes, you get to see their relationship grow along with the art. It’s a coming-of-age type story and it displays all of Yamada’s insecurities and anxiety as heart-wrenching as it is. But it also shows the meaning of communication and how it ultimately fixes just about everything in these romance stories but it seems like nobody ever wants to talk. Sorry for the rant.

Hey, guys. It’s Ike. Let’s talk about a yuri manga called Hungry For You: Endo Yasuko Stalks The Night By Flowerchild. I personally have never read any of other works nor have I heard of Flowerchild until now. All I know is that I saw vampires and it had some potential yuri element and I am all in!
Long story short, Citrus has its shortcomings, but it’s a good manga and I respect the hustle. Saburouta does a fantastic job when it comes to characters and she does it well when it comes to recognizing flaws in certain characters.
February is the month of love (or weeping if you don't have a significant other), so Ike's here to give you a big dose of yuri with three anthologies!
