And once again you are the best readers ever. Saburouta, who made an appearance in Yuri Hime Wildrose Volume 7 back in with a smutty one-shot, has returned to the Yuri scene with a drama-filled, pseudo-incest manga titled Citrus. Citrus is currently in its 4th volume, running bimonthly in Comic Yuri Hime , and was recently licensed in English by Seven Seas yay for more Iuri! It has caused such a stir in the Yuri world that a Promotional Video was created voiced by a few notable actresses featured in various Yuri anime titles to recount the manga up through its 3rd volume! Not even making it through her first day of school she manages to sully her reputation and anger the beautiful, but snobby student council president, Mei. After returning home, Yuzu finds out that Mei just so happens to be her newly inherited younger sister, a detail mom forgot to mention.

Review: My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness by Kabi Nagata (Manga)
Instead of a lengthy story spanning multiple volumes, webcartoonist Kurukuruhime has crafted a collection of adorable short comics featuring committed relationships between queer women. The characters include two women in their 30s who love gaming, a writer and a library clerk who complement each other, and even a college student and a pet shop owner. From story to story, we see how these characters express affection and spend their days together. All in all, the volume covers 10 different couples in 10 different situations, all of which are variations on the basic romantic setup of two women in love living together.
And boy does Kabi Nagata really hit home and dig into your head with her discussions of mental illness, sexual orientation, and her journey to finally loving herself. Before I get into the nitty-gritty, I do want to stop and point out to all my readers that this manga does deal with topics of self-harm, eating disorders, and severe mental illness for anyone who may need the content warning. My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness is an autobiographical manga that follows the life of creator Kabi Nagata as she explores her sexuality and searches for some sense of self worth, eventually leading to an encounter with a female prostitute.
