Finding an English link to this was difficult! I’m not sure if I can find the download file for it. Link

The story takes place where Fukue Yumiko (Goto Maki), formerly a struggling performer, is now a world famous actress. However she encounters someone from her past. Suzuki Kaori (Mari Hoshino) who had showed Yumiko kindness by giving the struggling Yumiko a free bowl of Ramen. However, when approaching Yumiko again, Yumiko seems to have changed and brushed Kaori off as a forgotten memory. However, Kaori is now an investigative reporter. While on a different case, searching for a neighborhood dog killer, she accidentally catches Yumiko and points to her as being the dog killer. Thus begins digging into Yumikos past. Examining how she got to where she is now, and why she has changed so dramatically.

A lot of it is saved for the spoilers, but to be quite honest I hated the other women in this movie. The only attractive one was Yumiko and Kaori. And Kaori was straight. OK YES THAT WAS KIND OF A SPOILER. BUT THATS ONLY TO PROTECT YOU. DON’T GET YOUR HOPES UP.

There wasn’t really a lot of lesbian action itself. Like most movies, it is way more focused on the storyline. That’s great but, still the other women were….pretty ugly tbh. I’ve seen some of their pics for other movies, and they aren’t that bad. But one was either super old, or one had the weirdest haircut I’ve ever seen. And also pretty old.

Plot was OK. It’s way more about Yumiko’s character rather than plot though so. Plot didn’t really go anywhere.

Renai Idenshi XX (2009 – 2013)

AKA Love DNA XX, or Love Gene XX. Written by Eiki Eiki, and drawn by Zaou Taishi

renai

Recently completed and done fan translated, it can be found here.

The story revolves around a world where men no longer exist. They have become extinct, and now only females survive. However, the government has decided to implement an “Eden” project, where half the population is split into ADAMS (predominantly the “males” in this society) and the EVES, the females. ADAMS are supposed to take on the role that men used to, such as working and the EVES take the female role, taking care of children and such.

ADAMS are even forced to bind their chest in order to look more male. It is forbidden for EVES to be together, as is the same as ADAMS (almost similar to homosexuality).

As for the amount of lesbian content, well, the whole freakin world is female 🙂 That makes me happy. However,  despite all this, I do forget occasionally that the ADAMS are in fact female. I often get lost, due to the art style, and read it in a male voice in my head. It mind tripped me a bit the first couple of times. It was difficult to get used to. Especially since the translators decided to refer to the ADAMS as males at a certain point because the original Japanese story used the Japanese pronoun of “he”, and so they used that.

The story is incredibly straight forward. This story is more focused on the realization of a very obvious love rather than the struggles it is to be together. I’d have to say there is no actual strong plot, or some strong resistance towards them other than society. The story had so much potential, and even then….

Annnyways, I’ll save that for the spoilers section.

As for art, I thought it was quite good and pretty, even if it was this weird mesh of male-female traits and characteristics, I still thought it was quite beautiful.

Art: 8/10

NEWS: Adding Movies & TV to the blog!

Hey all,

Not sure if anyone’s there or cares,  but you may have noticed a new category and list called “TV and Movies” and wanted to inform everyone on what’s to come!

hhas

Is this related? I don’t know. I don’t care.

After speaking with a friend about lesbian movies and TV dramas, we liked them the way we like our Shoujo-ai, not porn. We then realized how hard it is to even FIND said Movies and TV Dramas, and how few there are. Sometimes we’d have no choice but to watch whatever was there.

There’s also the matter of how I would rate the movies. Because they’re so rare, sometimes I take what I can get and although they may not be entirely good.

So, in order to help out the community, I decided to add this addition to the blog. Some are rare gems, some are not so rare. Some are good and some are bad. I will be separating them for you, warning you, and hopefully not wasting your time.

In addition, there are actually very few Japanese lesbian movies (in my books, few) so I will be expanding it to simply “asian”. This will include Chinese, Korean, tagalog or singaporean films as well (if they exist). I will only be doing this for the Movie and TV section, NOT for anime and Manga.

I will only be reviewing and linking those that are English subbed. If it’s not subbed in English,  I will not review it or link it.

At the same time, links to these movies are rare. So I’m trying to get a hold of the download/digital versions of these movies and will either provide a download link, or provide a streaming link for you to watch. As long as I am active on this blog, I will be fixing those links as well. WITH english subs. Please bare with some reviews, they may not have links or downloads simply because they are too hard to find, but don’t you worry I will be working on it and trying to track them down.

If you have any movies pertaining to these (NOT PORN PLZ. But R-rated material I’m cool with), I am more than happy to download and review it for you, and providing a reliable link to the public.

You can contact me here at: yukarichan.blog@gmail.com

As for rating system, some will be standard such as Yuri rating (blanket term I use for amount of lesbian content) and Overall rating, however because it is film, I am currently thinking about adding another rating system to it.  I will update this post on the new rating system once I have it ironed out.

I hope you enjoy what I have coming! I know I will!

UPDATE: I have decided not to add any other scales to my reviews. If I decide to change this (probably unlikely) then I will change it, but until then I’m going to leave it as Yuri + Overall.

Shattered Angels (2007)

Also known as “Kyōshirō to Towa no Sora” or “Kyoshiro and the Eternal Sky”

https://i0.wp.com/i776.photobucket.com/albums/yy41/BlazinAnime/ShatteredAngels4.jpg

From the makers of….you guessed it! Kannazuki no miko! Comes: Shattered Angels.

Kannazuki No Miko watchers can easily recognizes Chikane, or in this world, “Kaon”

And yes! Himeko is involved as well, or in this world, Himeko! However, this is under a different life. And they are not yet together.

It revolves around these fighters, called “Absolute Angels” who can summon mechas (usually things that look more like gundams) and can fight each other. Uniting all the angels together can create the ULTIMATE GUNDAM— I mean Angel.

Shiratori Kuu

Shiratori Kuu, the main girl in this series, has NO IDEA that she is in fact an absolute angel, until one day her prince, Kyoshiro Ayanokoji, that she’s always dreamed of coming to save her, does so when in fact he just wants to collect these angels too.

Fight breaks out between Kyoshiro and his other siblings that also own Angels, and blah blah blah blah blah straight plot.

The real reason you’re watching this series

Onto Himeko and Kaon. So, Kaon is actually owned and controlled by a woman named Mika, who is the ruler of a Witch Academy (more like priestesses) and has many slaves and servants. All female. She is also sister to Kyoshiro.

Mika, is actually in love with Kaon, but Kaon has no feelings for her. Whenever Kaon does something wrong, she will punish Kaon. Mika is a certified lesbian. She makes love to her various servants. (I wish I had this life) She is a cruel ruler. However Kaon, for mysterious reasons, is in love with a servant named Himeko. This makes Mika jealous, and Mika tries to punish both kaon and Himeko.

Overall, plot is not terrible but there are many plot holes and questionable actions. It’s also kind of boring….

There isn’t that much yuri, but it’s there. Unfortunately, Kaon and Himeko are not the main couple in this story =/ I do have to dock points since it’s not exactly pure shoujo-ai/yuri

Yuri rating: 6/10

Overall rating: 4/10
