Mondlicht: Tsuki No Tsubasa (2009-2012)

It’s hard to guess the exact date as this was dropped by translators a couple of times, however it should have completed 2012.

The story is about a family of Vampires (called Mondlicht in this series – German for Moonlight) who are trying to survive secretly in society. In order to survive though, they kill tourists visiting a “haunted” hotel, passing it off as the supernatural. However, they are suddenly hunted by something called homonculi. They are humans who have been revived and modified, whose soul purpose is to destroy homonculi. All except one, code named F11 (real name Princess Marie) who was previously turned into a Mondlicht, and is suddenly awakened to protect her fellow Mondlicht.

In terms of Yuri content,  Some have very clear Yuri pairings. Most, dont. Most Homonculi are based off of historical figures, such ass Marie Antoinette, and the two legendary pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read.  Only a couple confess their feelings fully. Any kisses between them are limited to side pairings (sex as well, although it attempts to get sexual with the main pairings. It’s the ecchi talking though)

Art however, is quite beautiful. It’s extremely detailed and all the F women are super duper pretty. Their appearances….easily forgettable though, but at least it was pretty to look at.

Overall, this is in fact an action storyline with sprinkles of ecchi/fan service (and nekkidness) in chapters. The storyling is quite fast paced and short for an action manga. Again, the characters and story line, it is fairly forgettable.

Art: 10/10

Yuri: 5/10

Overall: 6/10

Voiceful (2004 – 2006)

Very short manga about 2 people. I was going over the list and thought “wait…I HAVEN’T reviewed Voiceful???”

OOPS.

Can be read on mangafox Here

The story is about an extremely shy and introverted girl Kanae Chan, who idolizes an upcoming singer, Hina. One day after getting her hair cut similar to Hina’s, she actually runs into Hina on the street and blurts out “I love you!” to Hina! She gives Hina whatever she just bought and embarrassingly runs away back home before she can embarrass herself further (like we all would do). Hina, surprisingly, who has never been told this before is intrigued, and successfully finds Kanae-Chan AND THEY HANG OUT WITH EACH OTHER (this would never happen in real life…)

Overall, despite the um, unrealistic aspect of the story (but it’s good to dream) and it’s shortness, I really enjoyed this manga. The chapters are about 40 pages long, so it’s not that short, but it still is much shorter than a series. It is still one of my favorites, and I highly recommend it.

As for Yuri, unfortunately its almost purely subtext. I was debating even writing a review on it entirely. There is one part, but it could be easily misconstrued as something else. I do still think that as long as you pay attention to subtle details, you may walk away from it thinking its a beautiful story (much like I do).

Major points still have to be docked for Yuri content though.

The art itself is tolerable. I can tell Hina is pretty. It is also kind of simple at the same time (the eyes are quite simple) the hair and clothes are more detailed, but there are many frames that are close ups, or dont have a background. But it’s not terrible art with weird faces. So I can say they did not do a bad job.

Art Rating: 6/10

Yuri Rating: 3/10

Overall Rating: 5/10
