    Damn now i want to see again a isekai with modern creations.
    https://www.scribblehub.com/series/12429/the--year-great-sage/
    Is daily and good. But not good enough... It doesn't have this "HOORAY !" feeling when you see recreation from JP isekai.

    I had only mentioned it about two months ago. But nothing further than it's completed in raws with 10 chapters overall.
    So overall it's not fully yuri right?
    You still talking about same series? It looks like you somewhat missed the thread where you posting?

    Ok, back to news.
    1) yurikatrans revived Kansutoppu! It was so long ago so now I need to remember where I stopped, or to reread from the start passing some arks.
    2) one of TL split from lazy9 group - and posted new chapter of Tag-Team in old blog (it looks like it was former beastman goddess translator).
    3) There is new series from author of "Monster Yurisume: My lesbian life with Monster Girls" that was completed month ago.
    Our Goddess once again with monster girls and yuri.
    Akari Mamori is a huge fan of Shintoism, from its modern practice to its ancient legends. As much as she’d love for those fantastical myths to be true, Akari doesn’t put too much stock in stories of gods and spirits with human-like forms and magical powers. Until she meets a genuine goddess and gets recruited into her harem!
    Rated Mature for a lesbian polyamorous harem, periodic nudity, and occasional sexy times! (no explicit on-screen sex at this time)
    Schedule is one chapter per two 2 weeks.

    Are those novels in other languages or EN originals? If it's the second, link meh!

    Considering Monster Yurisume, i smell great potential. The 'Male Lead' tag, though, is making me weary. I hope it's just a mistagging and not a sign of potential het-ness when yuri is explicitly promised.

    The biggest problem is that the series is listed as incomplete at 74 chapters

    As long as something is good i don't care if it's incomplete. But this series i didn't try yet. I don't have high hopes for it.

    You do realize Shoujo-ai is basically non-R-18 GL, right?

    New upcoming yuri manga by Towa Oshima entitled Daishinyū (Best Friends) which happens to be an ironic title considering the short synopsis given.

    Looks like it will be a cracker of a snarky comedy

    Oh didn't recognize the name before seeing the link. Maybe it will be good... no drama plz. I wonder if it will shoujo-ai or yuri. Also there is already a similar story on dynasty with a tomboy x princess-like.

    Depends on how you define Girls Love and yuri.

    I'd say it would probably be an actual relationship as opposed to an ambiguous overly close friendship. Thats just my opinion though

    So, i just came across something that may be very germane to the Garden (and potentially NU for tags) which i came across in the middle of a debate in the comments thread of the link about the heisei yuri poll. I'ma just post the exact words here for discussion while i try to find out more.

    Edit: After further googling around, i found that what is mentioned in the above quote is true. In Japan, the term Shoujo ai actually relates to pedophilia and lolicon.
    thus....

    I wish to call attention and make a motion that any and all reference of Shoujo-ai be immediately phased out and replace with 'Girls Love' which is the actual and arguably official term used fairly interchangably with 'yuri' in Japan itself.

    @LaDyViL can this help get the change of genres to bl/gl going? (you made a thread about it once and honestly I dont know why like half of nuf is opposed to it)

    +1 Seeing as how it actually could be an issue (quibbling about western terms vs japanese terms aside), perhaps it is time for at least the Shoujo-ai tag to be changed to Girls Love?

    Edit: :blobparty: 2000th post total in the Garden

    More than that, there is no reason to have two seperate genres. Other tags are more than enough to seperate the so called "hardcore/sexual" stuff.
    And besides it is incredibely inconvenient. Like you need to make sure you exclude both shounen ai and yaoi before search and thats just bad design when the intentions of the user are clear.
