Hey, all, so I want to make an effort to read more yuri/shoujo-ai, and I would love some recs.

I prefer fluffy romance series with minimal drama, but if the drama is done really well (read: the misunderstandings aren't mind-bogglingly ridiculous), I'm fine with that too. I'm also more of a fan of focusing more on adult characters (especially because of the whole perception of love between girls as a "youth" thing and something that will pass as they become adults :T). But I would be fine with some really sweet high school series (ala Asagao to Kase-san.), or even series that actually deal with this exact issue.

My favorite shoujo-ai/yuri author is Nishi Uko and I especially love her Collectors, if that helps. So I generally prefer slice-of-life manga with lots of domesticity.

(I'm also fine with manhwa, manhua, webtoons, etc. And action-oriented series. Just rec me anything you think is good and I'll check it out, basically.)

Please check my Reading GL List and Complete GL List before rec'ing me anything though. Thanks in advance for your help! :>

The thing is, you seem to have read/are reading most of the good GL! And I prefer sombre stories, myself, so... Oh, well. Will give it a shot.

Strawberry Shake -- My top rec among this lot, schoolgirl lesbians though they may be.
Konohanatei Kitan
Kuchibiru Tameiki Sakurairo and its associated series.
Youkai Gakuenki
Betsukiss
The Caged Miko and the Whimsical Witch
Tamen De Gushi
Michiwarisou Monogatari - Vampire After the Doomsday
Renai Idenshi XX
Sakura Buntsuu -- Might not be that fluffy, though.
Bombshells
Mette Sarete Kya

Thanks for all the recs! The only ones I've read from this list are Betsukiss and Tamen De Gushi, both of which I enjoy/fits with my tastes completely, so I'm looking forward to reading the others!

I'm always up for more recs though, if anyone else has some. :>

Magan & Danai is a manhua webcomic strip, autobiographical, little in the way of story but very classic drama-free slapstick. The translations have discontinued because the couple would like to release a commercial version of their art.

Itou Hachi has the overly sweet style, complete with fox girls. But several of which are adult foxgirls - if that's any consolation. I do adore all their work. Drama free, fantasy.

Bringing this back, as I (finally) got around to reading most of the recs, and so now I'm looking for more!

As for what has been rec'd so far... I think my favorite was Fujieda Miyabi's stuff, especially Chatting at the Amber Teahouse. I also enjoyed Fu-fu (except I was "meh" about the outcome of the twin sister's relationship--I was hoping for some consensual polyamory!) and Poor Poor Lips (the equating of romantic love to sex bothered me a lot but I liked the other parts of it). Konohanatei Kitan was great too, but I felt I would've liked it more if there was any actual romantic resolution! And I loved "In the Pool, OLs Around Thirty" in Bombshells but was ?? about basically every other story in that collection.

And, yes, Itou Hachi's stuff is cute! If only more of them could be scanlated to completion...

Thanks again for the recs! I really appreciate them!
