I talk about Angst in fiction and I recommend a few of my favourite angsty yuri manga
Yeah, not much else happens. I whine about angsty whining and I talk about Yuri passionately. Business as usual
Why are you still reading this. Just watch the f******g video.
Once again, this is another one of those post I have hoarded up for when I reach a dry spell. But this one could be pretty interesting (I hope).
The reason behind this post is simple enough. A couple of months back, I read a manga called GirlXGirlXBoy. I’m not sure if it’s popular or well-known but I definitely liked it. And a couple of weeks ago, another manga I was reading, Kimo Koi Limit, ended. And these two manga had one thing in common (well, two actually. They’re both generally Yuri). They both had a “third wheel” character that aided the progress of the main couple’s relationship. And I have always pitied this one poor person.
Well, if you do happen to have accidentally visited my blog by clicking on some link here, you might have seen my Yuri FanFic, Forbidden Lilies. And I finally have part 4 ready. Well, it was ready a month ago but my editor only finished it 2 days ago. Then he took his time to send it to me due to his…computer access issues (he’s not allowed to use it ). So for day 5, It’s going to be Yuri from me, something I’m rather passionate about.
On the persuasion of @fkeroge, I came up with an idea for this post. The whole of last week I could not find any time at all to do any form of blogging, much less anime-watching. Which makes no sense since last week was the final week of school for the whole damn year. Somehow, all of my free time disappeared even without any homework ;A;
Any ways, I also decided I should write a post. This manga was the only thing I could do the whole of last week. Yes, it took 7 days to read 7 chapters. I usually do that in 1 hour but I couldn’t. But reading over an extended period makes savoring it much more satisfying.
If you follow me on Twitter, you might remember a while back i had a really long line of tweets regarding this manga. And the tweets did not consist of very kind words either. I did re-read it though, because I wanted to create a strong standpoint for a review so here are my thoughts, clear of the RME that occurred to me after my first reading of it.
Yes, this is somewhat intended to be self-advertisement. So please bear with me.
I’ve recently started writing a short story on Yuri which was all started by some very curious triggers. So this is a post to garner some attention to it as I’ll like to hear the comments and criticism from more people.
I decided not to post it on this blog as I deemed it inappropriate. Also, it’s a personal project and not really related so it shouldn’t be posted here anyways.
So if you could help the new guy out, why not give reading it a try?
P.S I did not fully create that name. Just the Lily bit XD

Let’s get it started.

Ah, Katanagatari. What makes it so special?
For one, it’s by White Fox, with the only other work under their belt being Tears to Tiara. For one of their first shows, this show was great.
Two, it’s released once per month, so it leaves much more opportunity to
troll for viewers to speculate, to wait in anticipation.
But those aren’t the reasons why I’m writing.
