Aikatsu! thread here: >>2404411
New Astral Buddy was typeset
Tokiwadai is the holy yuri kingdom
Being a niche anime has downsides, but there are some upsides as well. For example the fanbase is smaller so het artists are few and Aikatsu is one of the anime in recent memory to get more yuri doujins than het.
>Being a niche anime has downsides,
Well you're not gonna make us talk about your anime no matter how hard you try. Even though I'm doing it with you. If it's a shoujo kids' show that isn't Precure or Sailor Moon, chances are /u/ won't be picking it up. Precure and Sailor Moon delivered important stuff for yuri such as Haruka/Michiru and Nagisa/Honoka. Aikatsu, not so much. It's a generic shoujo idol anime like Pretty Rhythm and PriPara, which means there's gonna be obvious het and pretty boys. So why are you baiting us, just to waste our time?
>For example the fanbase is smaller so het artists are few...
Nice delusions, buddy. I have known Aikatsu since OG and based on what I have seen from places like Pixiv, the het fanbase is almost as big as the yuri fanbase. The het wasn't that significant until S3 came along. In fact, one het pairing is more popular than the majority of the yuri pairings, at least according to Pixiv. Which is why Stars had more males and het and Sunrise isn't going to ignore them anytime soon. Cherry-picking only the good stuff and luring us to a false hope is sad and pathetic.
>...and Aikatsu is one of the anime in recent memory to get more yuri doujins than het.
I don't even know what to say about this embarrassing statement. You sure are doing a good job of keeping us off from watching it. Thank you for the warning that there's het in it.
I will post this in every general thread until Bocchi gets an anime.
Please stop this. All your doing is embarrassing yourself at this point.
I want to rewatch Strawberry Panic after ten years now, but as it turns out, my files are a but crummy which is unacceptable (I had no taste for quality back then).
Now, I found this:
It's 720, the only one, and seeded, too.
But he said he adusted the colours. Does anyone know if it's cromulent?
The only other one would be the NakamaSubs one, which is at least 420.
fucking BakaBT would be nice for that one, but no; animetorrents would be an option, but my ratio is barely positiveright now.
Photokatsu Scrapbook 02 is out~

I'm disappointed Japan, haven't found anything on these two, and the only yuri i've found with Ai-chan is not yuri it's futa with Miku.
Thoughts on incest?
Mother x daughter or sister x sister?
This is still alive, so I comment, but you should create another, drawing attention in this way only gets the opposite effect.
>Aikatsu, not so much. It's a generic shoujo idol anime like Pretty Rhythm and PriPara, which means there's gonna be obvious het and pretty boys. So why are you baiting us, just to waste our time?
Aikatsu really has bases, not only the typical subtext, Yurika is an example too strong and that is something rare considering the target public, but in the end they have more Yuri than LWA.
>The het wasn't that significant until S3 came along. In fact, one het pairing is more popular than the majority of the yuri pairings, at least according to Pixiv. Which is why Stars had more males and het and Sunrise isn't going to ignore them anytime soon.
It's funny how Aikatsu has been in decay since the "het" is more pronounced. Things are really bad since S3, but Star just got worse. But for some reason since Stars S2 things improved a bit, also mysteriously the "het" with Subaru were practically removed (but Ako continues to stink).
It is as if that numerous public that does het in Pixiv does not serve as a shit for the franchise.
>Ni siquiera sé qué decir sobre esta declaración embarazoso. Seguro está haciendo un buen trabajo de mantener fuera de nosotros viendo. Gracias por la advertencia de que no hay en ella que Het.
The number of Doujins does not really define much, Gochi also have a large majority of Yuri on Het and the series is also quite Yuri friendly.
I'm not going to defend Shin's behavior, as it particularly angers me to comment on the Raws the next day that I watch the subtitled episodes. But Aikatsu does not deserve to be hated just for that, Idol does not mean strictly Yuri, but some cases if they are and neither deserve to be hated just for being Idol, just like the SOL.
Complain about small things, but glorify a series that does not deserve anything of affection like LWA.
Fuckboy has openly admitted himself that he hijacks the General Thread purely because he knows most of /u/ looks at it and can use it to expose more people to his money grubbing idolshit
I think before he was not that annoying, I do not know if it tries to prove something, but the only thing that has done is to harm Aikatsu.
The problem is when it attacks other franchises (which are more Yuri) without any real reason, even if it is active in LWA and NTR is not a good sign either.

por que el español?
I want to draw cute /u/ comics, but I can't write or draw for shit.
I'm working on drawing, but I don't know how to write things without coming off as very derivative of works i've liked in the past.
Just start writing anyway and post it so you can get constructive criticism. You'll only learn by experience. Eventually, you'll find your own voice, but you'll need to take that first step.
It's not that organised. But I am carefully deleting all the aikatsu pics in my stuff to dump folder.
Last I heard it doesn't work when you post an image.
well since you're image dumping, do you have anything serene like? looking for references.
Welp, apparently spending hours dedicated to dumping images is a waste of time because it looks too much like a bot. Grats shin, you win. I'm out.
Has it ever occurred to you that Shin "wins" because you care so much about who makes the general thread, even though it's literally irrelevant, and you can just filter his posts so you never have to see them?
I am not the Flip and even if I was the mass stupidity that /u/ resorts to when their special threads are not done properly is just as pathetic and sad. Posting multiple images with the intent of killing a thread probably would be deem as spamming and hence attract a ban.
I mean I like the images and all, but it really doesn't need to happen here.
I get that he's a shitposter, but spamming and making the threads crap doesn't hurt him, it hurts anyone who just wants to use the general. the OP pic being shit really doesn't affect that much.
You must not get it. The fuck has basically an advert in the OP on top of continuously being cancerous. Although the obvious solution would be to just not use this one. God forbid people use the catalog.
Again, it's literally irrelevant. Why does it matter to you if he's attention whoring? Ignore him and, magically, it's like he fucking vanishes into thin air. Why do you think this thread is about him right now? It's because dumb newfags like you keep fucking making every thread about him.
Holy shit, listen to yourself. A thread is just a page which contains posts. If you post about normal general thread and ignore Shin (why the fuck haven't you filtered him yet?), it will be just like any other general thread. Getting this hung up on who or why a thread was created is disgusting /vg/ shit. Get your head right, man.
Its 1 post, instead you're
>pushing off a perfectly good thread by forcing a new thread up and having 5 generals up at 1 time
>ruining any discussion that could have happened in this thread
>wasting your time
or you could just ignore it.
Not that anon, but the namefag himself has occasionally spammed entire doujins in these threads (because nobody payed attention to him), but they're never deleted. If he can do it, why can't anybody else?
Tried so hard and got so far, but in the end it doesn't even matter
An ignored problem is not a problem solved. Attentionwhoring being a bannable offense has always been a global rule. It would be preferable if it didn't become a completely acceptable behavior.
The Goddess and her Favourite Archangel.
Fuck the Samurais for all their sakoku blocks.
Lancer best class. I want Kyouko to NTR Seyuka with Madoka.
Any recommendations for explixit yuri like sakura trick
I take it /ll/ isn't really popular here?
In the last thread someone mentioned he searched yuribait on google and was amused by the results.
Made me think, what, besides Hibikek, was the worst bait you ever had watched? To the end preferably?
The worst part was that Riko and Natsuo had better chemistry than a huge portion of the canon yuri couples. Even if I look at the show objectively, I don't think the guys really added much substance to it so it was just an overall waste.
The series felt good at first, but when Het happens, the environment changes for the worse and everything feels so generic and lacking in spark. At this point I wonder how much was planned, although I do not think that doing something so mediocre can be done by accident.
Cross Ange (No matter what people say "Yuri secondary couple" that is an illusion)
If someone has had the misfortune to see Classroom Crisis, you could say that it is bait or directly bad writing.
I think there are sleeves with the excuse of "I'm going to have a boyfriend, but I'm not going to love him as much as I love my best friend (girl)" or shit of that size, seriously anyone working on those projects sees that as something stupid?
At this point it's not about what society says, it's all about writing scripts of the same size as the Star Wars prequel or Twilight.
>Show delivers maintext yuri couple
>Still gets called bait
Never change /u/
>shows naked space hug between Ange and Tusk right in the fucking OP
Did you also delude yourself into thinking that Hibikek would deviate from the original source and have a yuri ending?
Stop pretending that these two are a damn saving thing. All the damn story is written with the ass, including the relationship of them, if it was well written would have had a romantic moment at the end and even hints that they are a couple, but none of that happens because Fukuda just wanted us to see the great Who was his stupid favorite couple, AngexTusk.
The better Start Line was released on 30 August 2017.
I like how the new single parallels World's End.
By explicit yuri do you mean "primarily about yuri"? Because Sakura Trick wasn't all that explicit. Lots of kissing but nothing more intimate than that.
You can watch Strawberry Panic but it's the catholic-school-oneesama kind of yuri so if you want to see lots of kissing you're going to be disappointed.
Or if you mean explicit in the other way -- i think there are a couple of yuri hentai OVAs in the 'recommended anime' sticky.
No, they formed relationships with each other because it was yuri. I'm just saying all girl boarding schools in Japan have a tendency to be Christian out of proportion to how few Japanese are actually Christian so that's the image of all girls boarding schools.
Oh, I meant how it was a catholic school and they weren't scared of repercussions of homosexual relationships in that world, I guess Astraea is nice. Not that Shizuma would give a fuck either way, girl was awesome.
Well you must be confusing it with Marimite or something, because you can't possibly miss the naked fondling in both the anime and the LN.
It's not a hentai though, they cut out before it gets that far. But it's explicit.
The retarded rape attempts aside (and the fact that the perpetrator is caught red handed several times to no repurcussions, then almost crushes a girl to death, retarded as fuck) the sex scenes were quite cute, I still dunno' if Kairi should be having sex outside in a field in her condition though.
Have you forgotten that these two existed?
>All girl casts (so far)
>Chara design by Tiv
They'd better not fuck this up.
It stopped being ridiculous when they tried to rape someone twice, it stretched it a bit too much for me. Also, hilarious? Hardly, Tamao was hilarious, I even found Kagome funny but what was funny about those two?
>tried to rape someone twice
A staple of melodrama.
>what was funny about those two
Jealous evil lesbians who plotted their crimes in the bath. With dramatic posing and fadeouts. How are they not hilarious?
Wasn't Shizuma more sexual? She tries to kiss Nagisa all the time, and that fucking face she makes when she looks at her (find someone who looks at you like she looks at Nagisa hnnng) like she's going to devour her.
The way I see it, the rape wasn't about sexuality, and them having sex in the bath is a normal couple thing, Shizuma on the other hands is quite deviant in her sexuality, she can barely wait til' she's alone with Nagisa.
The original point was that Kaname and Momomi were 'the most overtly sexual characters in the show', which they are. Shizuma is focused on the more sensual side of sexuality where she would give 'fuck-me' eyes but not actually fuck until the end, whereas those two were explicity sexual throughout the show.
Chikaru is much more exposed as the - what did they call her, "Shadow Queen" I think - of the school in the LN. I don't think Shizuma even can compare to shamelessly
telling your mother, the head of Miator, and a large gathering of students that she wishes to make all of Le Rim her harem, not to mention all the shady dealing she does throughout the whole novel.
Don't forget global warming conspiracy theories and corny engrish lines during a dramatic tennis match.
me and my wife both agree, we're both 100% straight girls
The other side is a bunch of manchildren not much better either unfortunately. I only hope DS learned from this and won't repeat the same mistake in the future especially with scanlators that actually matter. DS is a very convenient online reader for quality yuri releases that keeps the content around even years after the group and their links are dead.
I do not, I just think they pushed it too far, I'm supposed to believe that Amane is okay with seeing her girlfriend being pushed to the ground and lay on against her will. I mean, the show had a bloody horseback Princely rescue scene, of course you can't take that too seriously, but Kaname was kind of vile,
Finally got into YamaKimi, so far it seems great. Yuu isn't what I expected, Nanami is what I expected (I exepected Yuu to be the cute one) but this is good, I don't need to read another version of Citrus.
Art is nice and it's really comfy to read. Being a sheep and just following the popular opinions pays off yet again
What if there was a story of a Nazi closeted lesbian, who is brought out of her bigotry by a cute lesbian jew? (as a twist you could also have her be closeted because of her religious beliefs too)
What is it about yuri that makes foreign idiots think they can write reviews on Amazon.co.jp?
Wow, first one just seems to hate everything.
Second one if I recall shills Lezhin on their reviews. Not sure but even if using a review to advertise another product isn't against policy, it is bad form. They should save that for their blog
>Kodama Naoko making a yaoi series
>the male leads love each other but continue to be in het relationships with girls
>manga ends in that
Wonder if they'll go "how is this yaoi? Why is this in a yaoi mag?"like we do.
The only other popular yuri manga running now are "cheating bisexuals" or "poorly written soap opera drama" so anything with moderately well-written drama and thought out characters could take the cake. It just turns out that YagaKimi is all that and more.
Rewatching right now, watched this this morning and actually wanted to post it here.
After such a long time I completely forgot that this scene existed.
This was the most fucking random non-sequitur ever.
BL magazines can do stories that get well received and without any real fuss where the yuri equivalent would have /u/ raging about how the mangaka and editors must hate lesbians and the magazine deserves to fail.
Me too. There's just something wonderful about a cast of blatantly lesbian girls beating the shit out of cliches associated with the genre.
...Yaya grabs Hikari's butt.
>What a cute butt. <3
Yaya slides her hand up Hikari's thigh.
>Yaya-chan is touching my butt...
>Wh-Why is this happening?
>Oh... But this feeling...
>I feel so...
>Yaya-chan's soft hand...It feels so good...
Shot of their faces, Hikari parting and trembling
Panel of black with solitary "Ah!"
Cuts away from Yaya and Hikari.
>Any more will be too much for you, Nagisa-chan... okay?
Nagisa is looking overwhelmed.
>Th-That... That was, uhh... After that, w-will they..?
Shizuma proceeds to get feely with Nagisa as well...
I misspelled "panting" and the part about
Yaya sliding her hand up Hikari's thigh should be after she states that Yaya is touching her buttbut otherwise that is exactly what happens. I'd just take a picture but I have no camera with me.
>Gives Nagisa a chance to get out of dodge
>Gropes her after seeing how horny she is to help her out
Classic gentlewoman Shizuma
Straight up one of my favourite Yuri characters.
No, but you can blacklist all the het, bisexual, futa tags or whatever else you dislike. They usually do a good job with tagging shit appropriately, even making new specific tags for individual mangas on occasion.
It used to be a reader for a yuri scanlation site. The site is now focused on being a reader for yuri and yuri-adjacent content though for some reason it sometimes gets non-yuri stuff. I can kinda understand that manga about the trans girls (even though not all were trans iirc) but I have no idea why Sagatsu (sp) no Lion gets uploaded there.
You talking about Erica Friedman?
Seriously, I hate that cunt. Even when people take the trouble to attempt to be polite to her, she'd just shit on them, because she's such a special snowflake that cannot tolerate any worldview that is "perceived" as different from her because she thinks she owns it. When she exits the Yuri fandom, it will be the day.
The nostalgia! Are you guys missing some of the old stuff now?
>You talking about Erica Friedman?
No, the comparison is Japanese fujoshi vs anons here who believe, as an example, that Mebae was terrible and definitely flopped because of the end of one story in the last issue.
It peaked in badness, in my opinion, around the early teen chapters. Luckily since then the absolutely retarded drama has been absent and even regular drama toned down a lot. The bad parts of Citrus was always that A: Mei was less an actual character than someone who always did whatever lead to the maximum amount of drama at any moment, and B: there was a peculiar number of characters who inexplicably had something big against one of the main characters, or were just evil assholes for the sake of it. Neither of those things have reared their heads since.
Although while lacking the mean-spirited drama of the previous arc I thought the school-trip arc later on was really stupid too.
Haruka Yoshimura and Yumimi joins Onsen Musume.
Because idiots make new threads and when told to stop it you get retards going
>hurr durr its just a thread get that autist stick out of your ass
At this point I wish the blanket general was eradicated with extreme prejudice just so people can be reminded about why there was one in the first place and learn to respect it.
>>asks for an explanation of an unwelcome phenomenon
I didn't. Also none of these answers answer the question. Also it isn't customary to do this here, regardless of SHiT or what the mods do. They don't set customs any more than they dictate memes.
You're living in the past. 4chan has fallen this far from what it used to be. Mods didn't set customs in the past, but now if they want to, they do, and now they want to. It's akin to the Cultural Revolution.
I recommend watching the "San Junipero" episode of "Black Mirror." But I have to warn you fellow anons. It is not for the feint of heart. It will make you feel feels you couldn't possibly imagine.
I think the difference between our points of view is that I think that stamping out old culture introduces a new one in to replace it, which would then by definition be whatever culture they want you to follow, and you don't.
