I repeat: a YURI manga list.
#9: Poor Poor Lips: Though I’m still upset JManga picked this up and the accessibility of this lovely manga is limited to a select few, I’d have no problems seeing this one get the green light. Sure it’s slow, but amusingly slow and not Gayngst-y.
#6: Open choice. I couldn’t think of a 6th one. It’s between “Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter”, Gokujou Drops, Himegami, Clover, Hanjuku Joshi, Ebisu and Hotei, Stray Little Devil, Heart Pounding Excitement at Mononoke Academy. It’s too hard to pick one because these are only a few of the many great yuri manga out there.
#3: Girl Friends: WHA!? The most highly acclaimed yuri manga of this decade isn’t #1? That’s right. As much as I want to see this bad girl picked up by a respectable anime company, there are two others I have a greater desire to see on my monitor and eventually TV. Let’s include anything Milk Morinaga, such as Kisses, Sighs and Cherry Blossom Pink.
For a list of all his work:
#1: Octave: In short, NANA in lesbian form. What’s not to like. Though most will agree Girl Friends should be #1, I have a soft spot for Octave’s nearly perfect realistic approach to lesbianism. I dunno. I like it that much.
So there you have it. If any nation members have others they’d like to mention, I’m all ears!
