    It's Really Interesting, The Story Is Tell From The Love Interest's Point Of View Towards The Main Lead With The System. The Overbearing Money Arc Is My Favorite And It's Really Cute.

    I was found! xD

    I don't have that much planned for the story btw, I have a bit of backstory in mind, some drama and an idea of how the story will end, but most of it will be winged as I write~

    Hope you enjoy it~

    PS: Please don't expect to see much fighting and what not in the story, it's not an action novel the setting is there just because that's how the story shaped in my head.

    Hate this time of the year and weather that comes with it :blobsneeze: :blobsick:
    I won't quote the whole post but it's quite a massive view from "other" side. I don't know any of those stories mentioned but whole description with terms and routes and cliches was at least educational.

    About mention of some yuri ones
    Wasn't there situation with kill or be killed? Harems situation like mostly were there were all bad. MC was dead nearly start of the story in the original. And leaving her alive even after aphrodisiacs bite MC later in the story. At least it was understandable.
    And who it was?
    Nice summary! I have a question how clear is MTL of the story?
    Nice to see another new story. Still, it bothers me in description that there will be a lot of tragedy....:blobconfused:
    It's interesting one too. You unearthed so many new ones... I wish I'll have time with whole bunch other ones to read them all. :blob_grin:
    And how was MTL in that one?
    Thanks for writing! Will see it later too. :blobcozy:
    ---------------------
    OK, now for what I think should be mentioning:
    on SH there are other new stories:
    Mahou Shoujo Reincarnation -
    The strongest of all the magical girls that existed in Tokyo S has started to depress into the path of a monster just like all the other powerful magical girls, in the midst of all her despair she soon finds a solution to all her problems that is to reincarnate into another world!!!!!
    Setting is not overused looks like fun but it's early to tell.

    Cybernetic AI -
    Elena the daughter of Stone family who was born without magic power and no talent in martial arts live all of her life in her house on night she found........... (Author Note: All right i am not good at it read the first chapter to understand the story)
    Another one not overused setting. Girl in fantasy world that born without magic was forbidden to leave house only way out is political marriage as another wife of influential person. But she caught up some AI chip that contains another world knowledge. Without magic. And it was futuristic Earth. The start is strong could potentially be interesting.

    And Zeroth Knight comes to SH too from RRL.

    in manga there is new YH series: Pocha Climb! story of childhood friends that meet in highschool later and working with each other in wall-climbing club.

    A Girl Like A Pilgrim -
    Aiko moved to Tokyo out of an adoration for Shinonome Shion, a mangaka whose work touched her so greatly that she reveres them like a god. What she doesn't know is that Mao, her lonely, gloomy next door neighbor, is actually Shinonome-sensei herself. Their complicated relationship grows deeper as Mao tries to keep her identity a secret while struggling with the pedestal that Aiko has unknowingly put her on.
    rather overused plot lately. I wonder from where they start appearing up? :hmm: Former or recent manga artist that is insecure and unkempt - check. An overly cheerful fan that help her - check. Still maybe it will be good. And it's completed at least.

    and cute series of one panel stories A Hundred Scenes of Girls Love - from the author of "Yuri Moyou"

    New futa english NSFW doujin:
    [Sentakuki] Mae Kara Zutto (Futanari Sekkuru!!) [English]

    Cliche senpai-kouhai student council + twintails / in short somehow a copy of Sono Hanabira eroge 1.
    I really like that finally i can see some futa + twintails + onee-sama/imouto twin-tails.
    But too bad, despite the good plot and sentences. The quality is somehow really amateurish. Couldn't become horny enough before the end.
    There is pubic hair too. I should happy normally but i am not because black pubic for blonde girl.
    Ubik replied before. Interesting. I also like it. It kinda looks like a random normal series but you say it's yuri ? Are you sure it's yuri ? Because for some reason the summary (despite being funny and joking like other CNs) forgot to talk about the waifu.
    Interesting... It would be nice if it is similar in spirit to Fairy and/or I Was Reincarnated but I Don’t Know Why (both series of yurikatrans). For people that don't know the series, basically it's ultra fluffy with MC being so OP that problems are destroyed as easily as crushing as... as... oops i don't know any comparison to show how easy it is. Also authors don't forget to show epic moments.
    Eh ? You think it got potential ? Not bad. Let's wait for more chapters.
    *Click on scribble link to see the cover again and verify if it's same summary i remember* Hmmm ? Didn't it have another cover ? It's an asian on the cover now.
    *Google on RR link* Hmmmm ? Was it changed ?
    Anyway it's one of the series that i didn't become interested in when i read the summary.
    Ooooooh, i skipped this one because of "drama" tag. Thx for giving summary. I checked author, trying to find other work so i understand the yuri style and no other work on dynasty beside this one so i was disappointed.
    As i am someone that already read the pages of the "100 yuri scenes" of this author on danbooru or dynasty, i am not interested in reading the serialization/manga of it.
    But maybe i will read it to check if i miss any or if author add new ones or add new ones that won't appear in danbooru/dynasty.

    Definitely Yuri, and the kind of novel you would enjoy. All fluff no drama
    Like always, modern Chinese Yuri goes to the entertainment route
    The couple is Mc x Fl who is the granddaughter of the richest family and the #1 female celebrity

    *Salivate* WTF ! You serious ? No jokes ? Guess i will check out this series ultra soon.

    Edit: Geh ! Only 100+ chapters. I guess that is a normal number if you say that there is no drama.

    Don’t be so picky, getting a Chinese yuri without drama is already really rare

    I know I know. I think you misunderstood, i was just mocking myself/showing my reaction that i am ultra disappointed that i won't see the 2 girls for a long time + joking that despite it being a CN, it doesn't have a lot of chapters (Not yuri : the series "Martial Arts Master" is also a masterpiece no drama romance that doesn't look like a CN and only 755 chapters. PS: it was once before number in qidian china). But said right after that that the short length of the series can be explained by the fact that there is no drama.

    I was not trying to say anything bad about it or that i disliked it.
    Edit: I forgot to say it but thx for the recommendation !
    Edit:
    "So you will follow me until I complete all the tasks?"

    "Well! As long as the host did not accidentally die, even if it was only one breath, I would Will always follow the host!" Little ghost nodded.

    Are you cursing me? Wen Xiao’s mouth twitched and looked at the little ghost in front of him. He saw the little ghost and smashed his head, and then suddenly realized (?) said.

    "The host is assured, even if it becomes a vegetative or n-level disability, the little ghost will never give up, so don't worry! Try to do it!"

    It has, but I have some hunch that it will be not for long. Author not a writer...
    But you even doesn't share this here, right? :blobtongue: So not counting.
    Near 100 chapters is a rather usual length of that kind of stories. But drama free fluffy thing - that is rare gem. Oh and if romance is starting in single digits that is or not chinese story or quick transmigration one. In 90% of what I saw couple established after 50% of the story. and about 75% of them it's after 80+% chapters.

    Oh, and censorship in China continues. I found a rather funny thing that in September (09/03) two chapters Female Protagonist is a Blackened Villainess was locked in raws (jjwxc), one of them has number 23. If anybody could tell me why it was locked please enlighten me, because I'm out of ideas. :notlikeblob:

    P.S. and I found one not so yuri but have some tie with yuri. But I want to share it. So spoiler, don't read if you don't like.
    I'm checking from time to time ANN (animenewsnetwork) for some news or license announcement or for yada yada other things ... Read today one news article.
    https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/da...peta-net-anime-premieres-on-october-4/.151060
    Simple story about new one anime season. Right? Maybe.
    Ok let's check news picture:
    [​IMG]
    The art style has some unique touches and news article confirm it. Character designs were made by Eku Takeshima. Yep, author of Whispering You a Love Song and other ones. It doesn't made whole anime yuri one of course. But maybe it will have something to watch for.

    Surprising flash of drama around the near end when
    the FL got kidnapped by a disgusting young master who wanted to marry her for status
    but I was satisfied with how
    Mc carried a 50 pound hammer with one hand and beat up everyone in her path then when she got to the floor the young master was in, she wacked him with the hammer and cut off his hand with the knife she took from the strongest henchman the young master had and saved FL on her own.
    The bomb squad and the mercenaries didn’t do shït
    Then they got married

    All in all, very enjoyable
    Very fluffy and cute
    Dog food everywhere
    Not the best I’ve ever read but a novel everyone should check out

    On SH looks like there is some competition and one of the entries is yuri story.
    *Doki! *Doki!! Escaping My Dead End Future with Tears!
    Sold by her family slave prisoner escaping prison with whom she liked. Not the best but worth reading at least.

    I understand that it's good but chapters about 6k symbols it's nearly twice as an average story. I respect the dedication to read it but it nearly about 3.5k translated/MTL pages ...... :sweating_profusely:

    Also just finished
    The ending wasn’t as satisfying
    Maybe it’s because FL got
    kidnapped and became live experiment when she was 5 but she managed to get Mc preggo again. But then
    FL gets
    kidnapped along with her friend
    and then suddenly appears out of nowhere when
    Mc gives birth 8 and half months later, earlier than she was supposed to butt whatever, Mc gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and Snowball called FL ‘dad’ for the first time

    Not bad, enjoyed the beginning much more than the end
    All the drama and angst in this novel was caused by misunderstandings, lots of misunderstandings
    If anyone is interested, check it out

    I found a new one and I dunno if I should read it or not
    It’s called
    攻略恶毒女配[快穿]
    The Mc who I believe is a male, willing to do any task by the system as long as it can save their wife. A world-hopping novel
    I thinks it’s gender bender, I can’t tell
    The mtl makes it too difficult
    But since it’s was in the GL section, maybe it can be classified as Chinese yuri
    I’ll read some chapters first before getting back to you all

    So I confirmed that the Mc is a girl. But is the fact that she’s raiding female protagonists to regain the health of her wife irl, cheating?

    Edit: Maybe, just read that every female she’s raiding has a piece of her wife’s fragments

    Eeeeeeeeh ? Wtf ? Well that is strange. And police didn't try to arrest her ? Even more strange. Thx for spoiling, now i can read happily.
    I think there is a typo in it. Or she was kidnapped at 5 years old or she was kidnapped for 5 years. Because the continuation of pregnant AGAIN is weird.
    I guess we can only defend author by the fact it's hard to find a plot different then all other world hopping series.
    For some reason i remember the purple haired girl. Or i saw that somewhere or i saw her in my numerous precognitive dreams.

    I thought for a moment. Is it because of me that you spoil me drama or just because you fell like it's important to spoil it for other yuri gardeners ? XD

    MTL is quite quirky in terms of gender pronouns from Chinese and Japanese stories. And who talk or doing something to whom too. Mistaking gender quite a common thing. But mostly when girls mistook for males. I don't recall when male called as "she" in MTL. So when somebody called as she in MTL it's a "she". Still, to mtl GB stories it's an irritating when whole gender confusion from the start.

    It took me quite a while to determine that Wei Junlan in MIWW is female for example.
