Review:

Yuri ni Tanpopo is the first Yuri manga that I’ve read that told a Yuri story from a third person prospective. The story is about a girl that lives alone and one day her older sister comes by her apartment with a woman that turned out to be her girlfriend. There was a bit of tension in the manga. Also a lot of communication gaps which caused lots of drama. There were serious yuri couple issues that were discussed in the manga. I believe the main subject of the manga is the importance of communication… or at least that’s how it seemed to me. The art of the manga is very beautiful. The manga is very short… it could’ve developed more. Then again it is a well rounded story. It was good.

Overall Rate: 7/10

  1. This was a good one as it tackled two classic worries of “What would society say about my dating someone of the same sex?” and “What do I think about it?”. The protagonist attempting to play peacemaker whether she liked it or not was a nice touch.
