Title: Girl Friends Author: Morinaga Milk Release: Monthly Status: Ongoing Genre: Yuri, Romance Art: A Originality: A Story: A Characters: A Humor: A Action: B
Impression: This is about a girl who has trouble making friends who has this outgoing and cheerful girl talk to her out of the blue and gradually become good friends. The girl herself becomes more cheerful and develops feelings for her new friend who also begins to have the same feelings towards her and they try to deal with these feelings. I like Morinaga Milk’s works as she always manages to give this fairy tale-like feel to her stories but it gets a bit tiring when the main issue that the characters face is always their fear of rejection which I agree is something that logically accompanies the pursuit of a taboo relationship (All romances as a matter of fact). However, I really wish she’d explore something other than that as the main issue that the characters face. It’s a great yuri manga but I wish it added something new to the genre.
