Kaoru with her short hair

The only thing i really liked in this manga was Kaoru with her short hair : P Gorgeous! Resembles the badass main heroine from Hana no Asuka-gumi in the grown-up stage. What turned me off was that lesbians in this story were depicted as women who hate men, always feel pain and even want to puke while having sex with men (who are normal, not abusive, at least at first ^_^). I admit, that for homosexuals sex with an opposite gender might be unpleasant, but pain and puke ^^? It looks like a bad cliche for me. And all those pathetic *feminist* talks, which would be ok, if they were put in a more elegant way)). I also found the main heroines to have rather boring personalities (except maybe Kaoru-san ^_^).

Moonlight Flowers

Love at girls' schools has long been an entirely noncontroversial staple of girls' fiction in Japan for one reason: the accepted idea that such affection was a phase that would be grown out of after entering the mixed-gender world. Moonlight Flowers reads as a sequel to all those innocent girls' school romances, a sequel where the women don't shed their "fake love" and are forced to learn what Japanese society really thinks of lesbianism. It's yearning and feminist and beautiful.

That said, because it is 1980s Japanese feminist, man-hating sentiment runs thick in this manga. Men are described as wanting nothing more than to completely dominate women, which is why they hate lesbians, who have no need for men. However accurate this is for the time and place, it does give a slight unpleasant flavor to what would have otherwise been a perfect josei yuri.
