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.
After the month of love, Ike thought it'd be a great idea to make a list of sad yuri. Then she realizes that she wouldn't want to ruin her own day, so she went with just regular yuri... or did she? Stay on your toes with Ike's top 5 yuri of March 2019.
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!
What is Beauty And The Beast Girl? It’s about a beast girl who lives alone in the forest, but she longs for any sort of interaction. This is when she meets up with Lily, a blind girl who recently moved into the village not far from the forest. Figuring that because she can’t see, the beast girl decides to lie to Lily about being a traveler in hopes of becoming her friend. As their relationship develops, their love will be proof that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Ike's thoughts on She, Her Camera and Her Season, a yuri manga with a looming teenage angst. Good stuff. Rintaro is best boy.
