Description
From Yuri Project:

Fashionable Yuzu imagined the first day at her new school she transferred to after her mother’s remarriage a bit differently; she didn’t know it’d be an ultra-strict and conservative girls’ school. So instead of a sweet high-school romance, she butts heads with the stern student council president Mei – who turns out to be her new step sister. And she has to learn that hate and love are often not that far apart.

The story isn't bad. At first, I was actually really interested in the relationship of the female leads ... only for it to follow typical stereotypes found in a shoujo manga (unnecessary number of rivals, issues always coming up between the two main characters, etc.).

The characters aren't too overly memorable but they're not bad.

The art is very pretty. There's a chapter at some point, however, where the lines are pencil-y, probably because the manga artist didn't finish them by her deadline.

In the end, it's not bad; it's not great. Still, it's probably one of the better GL series out there partially because it's actually a SERIES.

It's entertaining enough, beautiful sensual art without being overly vulgar, it was a pretty hot read. I guess that's a blinding element as I don't feel as negative about this manga as most of the reviews. Now thinking back on it is quite overly complex and dramatic, I think part of that is because of the annoying side characters, which seem to be an arc in themselves as Mei and Yuzu struggle to deal with side characters... I'd simply find Mei and Yuzu slowly developing relationship more interesting.

Something that /did/ bother me during the manga was the side characters sexuality though =_= Like seriously, all the characters were pretty much lesbian and even more annoying they all seem to fall for either of Mei or Yuzu and create trouble! Ok, so the author doesn't just ignore the existence of straight females and men in this manga, they also seem to be of the opinion that it's impossible for two homosexual girls to not have romantic feelings for each other. I guess I'm ranting about the wrong thing but as a girl myself it just seems extremely unrealistic and annoying. I also don't read that many yuri so if that is norm, I'm not used to it.

Character wise, it is quite stereotypical and I agree that Mei's character seems to have consistency issues but surprisingly I did find moments where I could relate to the characters, after all some people are known to be quite indecisive and hesitant or driven by urges/instincts. It was also realistic to some extent, at least for me as they overlapped with my experiences. There are a few moments where Mei acted pretty badass and all angsty and I liked that but those moments didn't really last and not much explanation was given as to why such an angsty expression was shown. Which is of course a bit disappointing.

So...my last thoughts, it's entertaining and sensual enough to read, just don't read too deeply or critically and like me you'll be ignorant of it's flaws and think it's better than it is plotwise.

The characters are barely likeable and with the chapter 14 arc, they're also unbelievable, the only reason i read it till chapter 16 was because i've already invested a lot of time in it, but i was saying (alound) bullshit the entire time, don't waste your time with this garbage.

Plus an underage loli that tries to get someone raped? really? and said someone actually tries?! and they actually forgive her afterwards?!?!?! COME ON!

Cliche and forced settings

A lot of events in this series is cliche and forced, ie the pretentious female along with the outspoken dumb type. My biggest grip for this series is that there's too much fanservice. In any type of situation, 70% of the time the brainless Mc will try to unconciously nibble on the other girl. See her sitting next to you? Try to kiss her. On a train with her? Nibble on her ears. Next to her on the bed? Try to rape her. It would be fine if its mutual but it's unrequited and thus seems so pathetic and desperate. Get some fucking self control girl.

This is just a hentai/porn if it went any further because the story is just too pretentious to offset all these forced fanservice.

A GREAT yuri manga!

First of all, as everyone's been saying, the drawings, the illustrations, are great! Seriously, Ive never seen a character as beautiful as Mei before. Especially in yuri mangas. I fell in love with Mei at first sight (yeah, seriously). Shes so beautiful!! And I love how emotions are put in the characters' expressions. No words needed.

She's a huge tsundere tho. I love tsundere characters but Mei could go overboard sometimes. I mean, MOST of the time. Mostly for no reason. Even when she starts having feelings for Yuzu, she still do mean things to Yuzu. Well I guess its because of the pseudo thing. But blaming everything on Yuzu is so unfair. But I still love you, Mei.

And Yuzu, I think its sweet and cute how she loves Mei so much but one thing keeps bugging me. Err, how did Yuzu fell for Mei, again? I mean she hated Mei but then after a kiss, that hate turns to love. Is that really emotionally possible? To suddenly show some concerns and gradually develop love would make much more sense. But in this manga, Yuzu fell head over heels for Mei after one single meaningless kiss.

In short, drawings excellent, plot confuses ppl sometimes but it's like roller coaster so i guess good, so, I DO recommend this yuri manga. Its chapters out bimonthly tho.

10 Art, 10 Smut, 5 Character, 0 Plot Dev

10 Art, 10 Smut, 5 Character, 0 Plot Dev
So about an average of 6.5/10
The chemistry and art are great, the characters are great but they do NOT GROW. Growth is 1 page of sudden change and 0 pages of development. The plot is a roller coaster that goes 5 meters forward 5 meters back and zig zag all over the place. Also I now understand whhy Japan have a population crisis, whilst I enjoy steamy lesbian smut, and this IS a yuri manga, how is it that every character that is introduced will be lesbian or closet lesbian? There is a cast of 99% lesbian and one straight married woman who is in a SUPER long distant relationship with a husband she does not spend any time with. New characters show up every few chapters, and they are all lesbians or closet lesbians the proportion is so unbelievable the population should have died out ages ago. The story flies all over the place with the introduction of more and more rivals every few chapters alternating between the 2 main lesbian protagonists.

Appallingly incoherent characterization   
Rating: N/A

I am struck with how shoujo-y this manga is, except that both of the girls are doing the forced kissing part, which is something, I guess. But there're ecchi elements too, like how tsundere Yuzu becomes when she's not a blushing virgin, and yuri elements, like the all-girl boarding school stuff that has absolutely no bearing on the dynamics of the characters. It's an interesting experiment, I suppose, but what results is utter incoherence in basic characterization. The story cycles through the tropes so thoughtlessly that the only constant is: Mei being emotionally unavailable, other people forcing themselves and their feelings on Mei, and Mei's personality being indistinguishable from a drooling zombie. She has the lifeless stare down pat.

The problem is that Mei's behavior is wildly inconsistent. She's kind to Yuzu one moment and cruel the next, and there's no reason given for most of such shifts. As readers we're invited to be intrigued by her but not to understand her and never rewarded for liking her. We understand Yuzu marginally better, except for the part that she luuuvvvs Mei and that she's alternately pushy/rapey and quick to tears. It's frustrating that they are supposed to be anchoring the manga.

It's not properly explained why Yuzu falls for Mei, why she she feels for Mei what she does beyond sexual attraction. She knows Mei as well as readers know Mei, which is to say, not at all. They're uninterested in each other except for possibly sex, but they lack chemistry for that, too.

Anyway, what this manga could be is fanservicey with the right kind of internal logic--it certainly has zero aspiration to by anything else--but awkward characterization is too whiplash inducing for even that.

Edit: I LOVE it that comments on this site are 99.9% bullshit but that so many of the comments on this particular stupid freaking manga is so freaking on point.

The art is so awesome. The characters are so hot. There are some action plot twist during the story that will make you go woah. The series managed to make me re-read it over and over several times. Character development is the best ever. The romance went very slow. At most, they only managed to kiss and hold hand, however, that's worth all the wait. I would buy this manga if it's out in US.

A bit too cliche for my taste.

I found it melodramatic, too unrealistic, filled with plot holes, and overly dependent on character tropes commonly observed in GL (cool, collected, dark-haired tsundere beauty; cute, bubbly, kind, straightforward blonde). But loads of other people seem to like it though, so maybe my GL tastes are just weird.

If you're looking for something which is the opposite of all the points I've mentioned above while also subverting the common character tropes present in GL, I'd recommend something like Sasameki Koto or Omoi no Kakera.

As a person who's probably read waay too much yuri i find this one original and wonderfully drawn. its not your typical yuri. where everyone's so confused or thrown off by their feelings for another girl. naw they skip right past that and allow you to see a relationship that could bloom regardless of gender. their issues have little to do with their gender and everything to do with their pseudo sisterhood. i personally love it. its a new story to all the same ol' ones i've read. plus the art is AMAZING and only gets better with each chapter.
