Yes, because manga romance has always set a high bar for realism.

You haven't even read it, have you?

(also, I know for a fact that you are in no position to discuss realistic lesbian relationships, any more than I am)

Pretty sure this one's aimed at women, though I could be wrong.

I'm not the biggest fan of male-oriented yuri but I'm just so glad to see it getting more recognition as a genre.

I really, really hope these titles do really well for Seven Seas! I want to see more yuri here stateside ^^

It ran in Yuri Hime, which is about 60/40 Female/Male in demographic.

The stuff that runs in Yuri Hime and Tsubomi is pretty much aimed at a certain type of yuri fan, that is somewhat gender-neutral.

If these go well, it'll be a long time for Seven Seas to consider picking up the last 2 of Milk Morinaga's titles, Secret Recipe and School Police considering they're still running in Japan right now. I wonder what other yuri manga-ka will they consider. For instance Akiko Morishima's stuff is on par with hers.

I wonder if that Yuri Hime demographic has changed somewhat ever since Yuru Yuri's success.
