madohomu remains my favorite f/f ship to this day. i think it's rare to get female relationships this dramatic and complicated in anime. shit, maybe in media period.

It’s rare to get media with a female dominated cast where the female characters are more complex than their male counterparts, Madohomu fully deserved it’s ranking as the number one yuri anime because of that to me, even if it’s not directly a yuri.
I just wish more lesbian couples in media were willing to delve into complicated and fucked up relationships instead of ‘purest form of love UwU’ since the former is much more interesting to me.
Satorika is another ship like this that I like (I probably should have added it alongside Reimari but I’m bad at naming stuff on the fly haha) gousotsu ended up being a pretty godawful anime series but I do like what some of the spin-off material (the manga and Ryukishi’s GL book about them world hopping and ending with bern and lambda specifically) have done with them.

I made the thread as a counterpart to the BL thread. I was hoping for some more explicitly GL media, but I wanted to let nonnas discuss other F/F ships they like as well. Also will hopefully make the lesbian media thread more diverse because it is a lot of anime/manga/manhwa right now

If you're cool with antro stuff On a Leash starts off with a good problematic one-sided relationship that eventually turns into something else later on. I haven't finished all the updates on it but it goes for about 50 chapters. The characters are shape shifters that can switch between a human and animal/monster form I swear this has plot relevance to it, they are in a war and the animal forms represent 'sides' of the war but most of the sexual stuff is human oriented. Unfortunately don't know much about the creator I suspect it might be drawn by a scrote but at least it's well drawn and between two cis women.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned them. They are some of the best written and interesting characters in all of anime, especially Anthy.

nta I read about 20 chapters of on a leash before I got bored of their dynamic but I never got the impression it was by a scrote. Manhwa/manhua has always been better in that regard compared to manga and the amount of scrotish moeshit tarnishing yuri.

I don't think you look much if you think those shit fic tropes only exist in M/M spaces. I wish.

I'm always on the hunt for gl with butches or at least gnc characters but thinking of recs I feel like most of what I've read I wouldn't recommend to anybody kek. A fruitless betrothal isn't finished (and I doubt it will be honestly) but it's really cute and funny and both the leads are gnc warning that her LI is in a fake relationship with a gay man and that it the romance between them hasn't been established before the author seemingly abandoned it lol. Kill switch is also pretty good and finished. While not a GL per say, Jeong-Nyeon is based around female characters in a pansori troupe so they also play the roles of male characters on stage and there are a few real couples there including gnc characters but warning there is no official translation and the fan translation only goes up to about 30 chapters.They're also making a drama adaptation with Kim Taeri who you may know from The Handmaiden as the lead.

I wanted this to be good because the premise sounded really promising but it's just boring and falls flat to me.

I don't think I can get into yuri as much as I would like, I guess I'm so used to scrote-ass porn content that I can't bring myself to even viewing the most basic moeblob mainstream yuri thats out there right now. I do, though, have a very specific taste in mind. I'm not sure how though I'll be able to reach that… let alone this dynamic:
>tall, older woman. who's a neet/hikki while there's a small, younger woman who is successful and overall accomplished.
>roles are reversed and older woman gets taken advantage of by the younger. This happening at a progressive pace, the older not realizing it until they are trapped in the claws of the younger woman.

I think I have the same problem as you, while I f/f shippings are my favorite, I find it hard to enjoy actual yuri series because most of the time they're either moeblob, highschoolers or for male gaze or written by men. The few ones I have enjoyed are all written by women.

Any nonnas have a guilty pleasure yuri troupe or manga? I am ashamed to say that I do enjoy some scrote-tier yuri as long as it doesn't get too horrible. Like picrel. The less awful one I like is enemies to lovers, seele/bronya is so good

You should read Kitanai Kimi ga Ichiban Kawaii if you're looking for something like what you're reading if you haven't! It's by the same author and it was pretty messed up

GL has always been extremely niche sadly. I'm just glad we got to the point where it's somewhat mainstream now considering the recent gundam anime.

This >>312909. Also for what it's worth Thai GL fans seem just as rabid as the BL fans although that's not 2D. Actually in general most SSA women seem to be drawn to being obsessive over real life shows and people rather than yuri and since SSA women are already a minority compared to OSA women who obsess over BL then those into yuri aren't going to have as much of a rabid fandom.

I think I've been lucky in curating my taste because I've never seen any trannies or other men obsessing over the GLs I read. Since they are men they seem to only really be into the cute pure uwu schoolgirl moe with a good portion of the writers of that type being now men too or feminine dom mommy likely still moe big booba porn. In any case you can just ignore the obnoxious moids and online discourse and enjoy it or stick to women only spaces.

>The Fed Up Office Lady Wants To Serve The Villainess
I quite like this manga and the leading characters. While there is an age gap between the female leads, you don't really get reminded of it as this being a transmigration manga where Natori has finished all her schooling, lives alone and recently fired from her job which leads to her being transmigrated/meeting her favourite character Lapis the villainess. Who has been training to be the queen since forever and had been plotting myraid of things in background in the original story. Which meant I forgot they had like a 10 yearish age gap.
I don't want to spoil to much of the story nor of the characters because I'm to busy rereading chapter picrel

read the first two novels of picrel and am left wishing for some gl that's actually well written. For lack of a better world, the worldbuilding in this one feels so…autistic? The way magic is described and the way it works just feels so sterile. And the plot, especially in the second novel really jumps the shark. I'd say more about what specifically i thought was stupid but I've never actually learned how to spoiler text on here kek. On one hand I sort of like things that feel stupid and "pulpy", but on the other I'd really prefer something of some writing quality, with a narrator with an interesting voice. Doesn't seem like there's any light novels that aren't high school settings that I'd like, but should I give otherside picnic a chance anyways? or are the characters kind of boring there too?

okay sperg moment but… Opium by Aji is a manhwa sooo underrated it's sad. not only does it have a gorgeous art style but also has really really good smut and an actual thriller plotline. it's almost historical fiction but without the historically accurate homophobia. i don't care because even though it's meant to be realistic, i just wanna see two women with drama that isn't based in bigotry. Maria/Dr. Arden (brunette) and Kyeongju (black hair) have almost a one-sided enemies-to-lovers thing going on. it's a shame that no physical copy of this story exists because it's just so damn awesome. i recommend deeply to anyone that wants an intricate but decently short GL (took me maybe a week to finish?) with interesting MCs and side characters with hot scenes and romance and thriller/drama all in one.

Is anyone else disappointed by picrel? The premise of character A going "I love you but I don't want you to fall in love with me" and character B going "I can't fall in love so I'll be with you" is so contrived and autistic. Not to mention that Touko's reasons for not wanting anyone to fall for her stems from identity issues of wanting to be like her sister, is pretty unbelievable.

May be because I'm insane but Bloom Into You is not only the most relatable yuri I've ever seen, but the most relatable romance I've ever seen period. If you have a healthy attachment style then it's probably nonsense, but as someone with avoidant attachment issues Touko is almost a textbook example of someone trying to heal avoidant attachment. I think it captures a lot of people's attention because it covers a specific area of romance that certain kind of people experience but never see portrayed because it is not really romantic to see someone hate themselves to the point of wishing no one would show them affection while still struggling with wanting company.

I feel like I've run out of GL webtoons to read lately, so I thought I'd ask if any of you had some to recommend. I've already read Opium, Moonlight Garden, I Love Amy, What Does the Fox Say, Her Mountain Her Sea, Her Tale of Shim Chong, Tamen de Gushi, She is also cute Today, How do we Relationship, My Princess Charming, Ruthless, and probably a bunch of random stuff I'm forgetting. I read yuri manga too and am open to suggestions, but I just prefer webtoons in general. I'm not very picky about SFW vs. NSFW, genre, etc., just desperate to stockpile more GL for my bedtime reading. I Love Amy is probably my favorite GL webtoon ever, but I've come to terms with the fact there is nothing else like it. I also really liked Moonlight Garden and Opium.

Samefag, i'll reply first

>What's your first GL memory (shipping, hearing about it etc.?)

Shipping Aiko/Doremi and Sakura/Ino. GL brainworms were in me from the start but it took them a while to fully blossom. And looking up shitty ecchi GL animations on early video hosting services. The internet was drier than a desert for yuri back then, how far have we come. My first proper yuri manga was Maka-Maka.

>What do you like most about GL? What do you dislike?

I really cherish its very existence. I'm a sucker for shojo aesthetics/storytelling so i love when GL nails it beyond the 'moe girl' look. Even better if the writing is on par with het shojo. Picrel in the previous post is a good example, i'd say. I really want to see more non-shojo style yuri though.
I kind of resent how cutesy and boring and sexless a lot of the genre is. Weirdly enough, it creeps me out more than actual +18 or ecchi yuri. I feel like it wouldn't even be hard to make good 'ahh death by holding hands' yuri with characters that don't feel flat and empty.

>Favorite yuri tags? Dynamics?

Non-moe art, Age gap, Angst, Creepy (yeah..), Adult life, Tomboy, Childhood friends, Cheating.
I just love cliche tropes with a twist. Like reversal, pretty feminine girls who'd like to be tomboys, soft masc characters and strong fem ones. I really like age gap too, but with shy/timid older women. Rivals to lovers is a big one too.

>Favorite ship?

Eirin/Kaguya. I love Chihaya/Shinobu, Campanella/Naoto and Nana Osaki x any girl from the cast.

>Favorite GL anime(s)? Manga(s)?

Anime has to be Oniisama E. I liked Simoun too

As for manga: A White Rose in Bloom, Tandem Lovers, Sasameki Koto, Love DNA XX, Kakeochi Girl, I'll Bring You Millefeuilles, My Girlfriend's Not Here Today, Otome No Teikoku. Even Though We're Adults. Anything by Nagori Yu, Flowerchild or Morishima. Miss Sunflower, anything by Maeda Tomo, anything by Sal Jiang. Okay, i'll stop now kek. There's a ton of one-shots i love, i might post about some i find underrated when i'm on the computer.

Least favorite?
Yuru yuri, Bloom Into You, I'm in love with the villainess

>Do you have an author you worship?

Akiko Morishima, Minami Q-Ta, Battan, Torajirou, Ikeda

>Any guilty GL pleasures?

Otome no Teikoku would fit the bill. It's what got me back into GL and it's in my top 3 yuri. I don't even have it in me to go 'ehhh i'm sorry it's scrotal but it's so good' i just adore it. The twins piss me off and you have to look past the couple first chapters but it's a masterpiece otherwise. It has been my main source of waifus for the past decade.
There are some other scrot-ey 18+/16+ yuri i love, can't remember them as they haven't made an impression on me but yeah.
Oh, i love

>What would you like to see more of in GL?

Masc x masc yuri. Yuri about two old women in love. Yuri made by BL authors (eg. Love Dna XX), as i tend to really like their takes on GL. They bring a yaoi flavor that i quite like kek. I would really love to see more ambitious worldbuilding and science-fiction. Praying for scanlators to pick up more varied stuff in the future

No. 372043

>What's your first GL memory (shipping, hearing about it etc.?)
Super cringe, but I used to love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and I would sometimes ship the Mane 6 with each other, kek. My fave ships at that time were RariJack and SunLight.

>What do you like most about GL? What do you dislike?

I like it since there's no "pressure" to adhere to whatever stereotypical gender roles is expected of romantic relationships (men are initiators, women should be chased). Plus, I'm a woman—obviously I'm going to relate to women more.

The thing I dislike would probably the awful lack of masc women. I feel like every animu yuri pair both girls have to have some degree of femininity. Which is shit, because I fucking hate hyperfeminine moe shit in anime when it's overplayed.

>Favorite yuri tags? Dynamics?

When the younger of the pair is the more "aggresive" one, couples that are constantly bickering with each other, enemies-to-lovers. Mind game ships.

>Favorite ship?

No bulli, but it's []Lumity. I swear I'm not underage, kek. Their first middle school love dynamic is so cute.[]

>Favorite GL anime(s)? Manga(s)?

I haven't finished it yet (in fact, it's on-hold) but I really enjoyed Under the Leash. It's mildly furfaggy, but the military setting is pretty unique to the genre, that and the fact both leads aren't the typical "uwu young and pure eternal moe schoolgirls"—like, they're actually grown women with a somewhat messed up dynamic. []Delicious[].

>Least favorite?

Anything made for scrotes or is too moe. Also, the "cold brunette/black-haired girl" being paired with a "naive/innocent blonde (or some other light color)" needs to stop. It' overused.

>Any guilty GL pleasures?

SoL yuribait. If the bait is gud then I'll watch it. (Love Live!, Sound Euphonium).

>What would you like to see more of in GL?

More variety in genre—detective, sci-fi, dark psycological—and setting (no more high school shit), also, no more teenagers please—I want women in their twenties or even thirties to be portrayed more.

No. 372049

Samefag, I meant On a Leash.

No. 372057

Thanks for the prompts, nona. I'm also sad about how slow the thread is and I hesitate before posting because I don't want to become too recognizable kek. My responses will probably trend more towards webtoons than yuri manga because I just haven't been keeping up with the yuri manga scene very well in the last few years.

>What's your first GL memory (shipping, hearing about it etc.?)

Sakuino when I was like 10. My first yuri manga was Strawberry Panic, though. I was also really invested in certain ships from shoujo, like Ushio and Haine from Gentleman's Alliance.

>What do you like most about GL? What do you dislike?

This is a good question, I guess I've never thought about it. I like that there's a niche for F/F relationships. I guess it's obvious, but I just enjoy that it exists. I guess I dislike how boring and safe a lot of the stories feel.

>Favorite yuri tags? Dynamics?

I like ~toxic~ dynamics kek. Possessiveness, power imbalances, obsession, unhealthy devotion, etc. I enjoy angst and melodrama. For lighter stuff, I just like when they argue and banter a lot.

>Favorite ship?

This is pretty predictable, but Utenanthy. The stab scene rewired my brain when I was young.

>Favorite GL anime(s)? Manga(s)?

Most of the yuri manga I've liked has been oneshots, like "You, As You Are." But for webtoons, my all time favorite GL is "I Love Amy" and I will shill it forever.

>Least favorite?

Hm, not really. There's a sea of yuri and GL I dislike, so I can't single any out as being uniquely terrible since I give up on them pretty quickly.

>Do you have an author you worship?

Not really…like I said, I'm not that into yuri manga, and in the webtoon sphere, a lot of GL authors aren't exclusively making GL. There are many GL webtoon artists I follow and who's art I really love, like Unni (@unun_666) and Junghyun (@qt1_jo), but I wouldn't say I worship them. I think Aji has a knack for writing good GL.

>Any guilty GL pleasures?

Gachashit, I'm sorry…I really do like Honkai ships and also some of the Genshin ships.

>What would you like to see more of in GL?

More variety in settings for sure. Sorry if it's taboo to bring up BL, but I feel like BL has so much breadth in topics and style and setting, so I want more of that in GL. Like gangster GL love interests, more zombie apocalypse settings, just more. I also want darker stories in general, I'm very bored of wholesome stuff.

Finding Project A-ko in a pile of my brothers' superhero comics when I was 5 (I had learned to read not long before that so I didn't totally understand it but I was 100% sure the girls were in a relationship or at least that the villain was in love with the blonde one)

Not really yuri-specific but I hate webtoons, I think it's just a bad format for a story. Like, Tamen de Gushi >>290685 is very pretty but I simply lost interest due to the format.

Not really. I wish Asada Nemui's new supernatural manga was actually yuri because her female characters are always good.

Like a webtoon? I'd say just avoid high school settings because it's been done to death. It's a little hard to say without knowing what specific genre you're going for. I'd say don't bother including a "comphet love interest" but that isn't all that common in GL anyways.
Man, WTDFS really brings back memories kek. It perfectly exemplified the sort of K-drama/telenovela feel. Just drama all the time. I doubt I'd be into it nowadays, but younger me was so enthralled. Also, regarding manipulative bottoms, maybe you'd like Love Thy Neighbor?

I've always loved 2hu, so I just fell into femslash content naturally from there. The first ever ship I ever went super hard (to the point of writing fic and arguing about it online) for was probably KaguMokou.

>What do you like most about GL? What do you dislike?

I love the drama. Like, the more over the top the better. I think GL drama carries a certain spice BL/hetero content lacks, but I don't know how to pinpoint it might be all the crazy love triangles, NTR, and cheating? That's mostly korean webtoons though…. I hate how maybe 50% of supposed "yuri fans!!" online are just using GL to virtue signal. If you ask them to name a GL that isn't Bad Thinking Diary or a gacha game ship, then they'll crumble. I also hate GL that feels asexual, the characters can be holding hands and blushing and maybe even outright confess their ~love~ but there's something so…dry about the vibe overall that it turns me off.

>Favorite yuri tags? Dynamics?

I prefer very dark relationships, lots of manipulation and abuse tbh. I loove 'forbidden love' so long as it's not forbidden because they're lesbians, usually it's due to them being sisters or dating other people or something.

>Favorite ship?

HomuMado and KaguMokou.

>Favorite GL anime(s)? Manga(s)?

White Angels Have no Wings, Outro, WDTFS, and Her Shim-cheong. For anime…maybe Utena? I am basic.

>Least favorite?

Citrus, I guess? I tend to drop things fast if they aren't entertaining me.

>Do you have an author you worship?

Not really tbh.

>Any guilty GL pleasures?

I don't actually feel too guilty about it, but Oddman 11 (or whatever it was called) alongside some other very moid-y works. I like Despaircest too…and a bunch of GL webtoons that are just all porn and no plot, like The Yandere Sister Just Wants Me to Bully Her kek.

>What would you like to see more of in GL?

Masculine women, I guess? It's genuinely rare (for me) to see a woman in GL that isn't femme or "butch" (e.g. a mildly handsome woman with a face full of makeup and high heels with her suit). I want more bottoms that are manipulating the top into treating them badly, too, or otherwise acting coy about what they want. I hate this reversal shit in BL but in GL it's hot. So long as the bottom is still bottoming y'know.

My first positive experience with GL was reading a nyo!lietpol fanfic (which is funny science hetalia is more popular with fujos)

>What do you like most about GL? What do you dislike?

I like interesting female characters and scroties in romance anime always annoyed me. Also it's socially acceptable for women to be close friends so the characters actually need to think about their feelings instead of going "oh my friend is a guy and I'm a girl so we're in love now".
I don't like when GL is overly pure, idealised and asexual.

Seabed. It's made by japanese people, doesn't have gendie shit, and only one male side character who is pretty irrelevant overall. Not the greatest visuals, but the art is cute, gets the job done and the whole game was made by only a couple people which is impressive. It's very slow paced and a mix of SOL with mystery and yuri. Might be boring if you can't deal with it being mostly SOL but I honestly loved it a lot, it's calming to read and gets emotional in some parts. Almost no coomshit in it either apart from one cg of one of the characters in the bath or whatever and some implied sex, nothing explicit/no nudity since it's all ages. Great writing and dynamic between the main two girls as well as a look into themes like loss and processing grief. The girls aren't really "masculine" though.

If this wasn't a cope fiction I could hear the "I'm sorry but a functional family is with a man so…"

I read up to chapter 64 and I have mixed feelings. First for art nitpicks, I don't love some parts of Jinju's design, like her visible ribs and perfectly waxed pussy (it just seems like an unrealistic character choice. Like how would she even be maintaining that in these circumstances?), also at one point the author said she only has a male art doll to use as reference and it kinda shows sometimes, there's occasional yaoi hands syndrome as well kek. It also moves super slow in some parts, season 1 is slow to get going and season 2 has less action and is more emotions based which I guess makes sense but it does get repetitive because at a certain point she's just cheating on her moid and feeling conflicted about it over and over again and that gets boring after a while.
I think it's absolutely wild that Doyeon has "never touched herself" but knows exactly what to do and how to eat her out and finger her properly… because she went to veterinary school. What?? The sex scenes are pretty good though and there are a lot of them, I've been disappointed by overly chaste manhwas before so that was a big plus.
As far as the age gap goes, I didn't mind it. Jinju calling herself an old lady all the time was a little cringe but other than that it's not very intrusive and there's not much of a taboo feeling. Some of the character motivations seem vague at first but you understand more as you read on. I like that there's a kind of bait and switch with the way Doyeon and Jinju are perceived by those around them and even the narrative sometimes. Maybe the author couldn't decide at first? She did say it was her first yuri.
Overall I think I'd give it a 7/10. Even when I felt like it wasn't a strong story I still enjoyed the pairing and it's not the worst thing I've read by a long shot.
Agreed, I still really enjoyed it though and I liked the character designs.

I think it's pretty funny how citrus is considered very problematic by english speaking audience but japanese yuri fans don't think about it that way

No. 393143

I hate Citrus, I don't think it's problematic or anything (they aren't even actual sisters) but I don't think I have ever watched an anime where I wanted to strangle every single character kek Everyone made me so mad.
Despite that, it was pretty entertaining and I binge watched it on a single afternoon, it was like watching some pigeons fight over a piece of bread.

i'm in desperate need of "toxic yuri" but specifically written by women because i can't stand cheaply written moidshit. realistically though i know that even just those two requirements make me too picky and i'm probably not going to find anything that meets them, but one can only hope otherwise…

Some of the the comic strips had overly cutesy language, but I'm still happy to read something created by an actual lesbian couple (@daruma_tatsuma and @haru_usg12 on twitter). Many of the comic pages are translated in English and available on both their profiles and their pixiv (https://www.pixiv.net/en/users/82480735). The actual book doesn't seem to have been localized yet, though

Are they really introducing a rival this late into the series? She's cute but it feels like a cheap tactic to generate some drama and spread the series some more

OT but Handsome Girl and Sheltered Girl was pretty good in my opinion. It's not amazingly written, but it was cute and I liked the characters. It has a similar premise to "The Guy She Was Interested In Wasn't A Guy At All" (to my knowledge, I haven't read that manga yet) in which the MC meets a "cute boy" she later finds out is a girl. Also IIRC the characters are in college and not high school (unless this was a translation error) which is refreshing for a yuri manga.
