What’s that? Did I hear someone say they want a 2D girlfriend to spend the Valentine’s season with? Well, have I got some good news for you! We’ve got not one, not two, but three new yuri releases this month to help get you started down the glorious path of 2D sapphism. Praise be to Meguca ❤

Summary

THE FUTURE AWAITS!

It’s time for Yamada’s university entrance exams, and she’s super nervous! All her hard work is about to be put to the test. Will she get to follow her dreams and join Kase-san in Tokyo come spring?”

Yes indeed, the much-anticipated continuation to the Kase-san series comes out in just a few days! Thanks to the summary, we can confirm our suspicions that of course Yamada is trying to attend the same college as Kase, because she’s just a sweetheart like that. I really hope she gets in and that the series continues into their college years…!

I would love to see a yuri series follow a pair of girls all the way from high school into adult life. I think it’s already nice that Takashima is taking their story into college and throwing shade at the old “shoujo-ai” tropes. I still need Kase and Yamada to get it on at least once, though. Kase is horny throughout the whole damn series, give the girl a break, would ya…

Summary

A sweet yuri manga about a lonely monster and the girl she loves!

A lonely monster, dwelling in seclusion in the forest, wishes she could live among humans despite her frightening appearance. Everything changes when she meets a blind human girl who loves the stories her mysterious forest friend tells her. As the monster and the girl grow closer in their secluded world, their love proves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

MONSTER GIRL YURI HUEHUEHUEHUE YESSSSSS *DROOLS*!1!!!1

*ahem* Lost my composure for a moment there, forgive me. But I mean, really. Look at her tail. And those big ears. And those big hands with long fingers ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

My yuri kinks aside, though… this is a brand new localization from the venerable Seven Seas. It has 23 chapters and is still ongoing, so it looks like this will be another full series! Rejoice! The blind girl meets monster girl story sounds off-puttingly cute and interesting to me. While I can’t imagine the story really digs into how uncanny and dynamic that relationship could be (once again I must thank “pure yuri” for limiting creativity in this genre), I’m sure it will be a lovely read and I can’t wait to dig in to another new story!

For those interested, you can view some of the artist’s work on their Pixiv as well. Very fluffy stuff with occasionally mildly sexy yuri poses (and, of course, lots of monster girls).


Visual Novel Releases for February 2019

Heart of the Woods ~ Studio Elan

Summary

“Maddie Raines is the editor and manager for her best friend Tara’s ridiculously popular vlog, Taranormal. Together, the two of them have investigated just about every cryptid and ghost story out there, but never finding anything substantial. Maddie’s expecting more of the same when they travel to a remote German village to look into the legend of a giant forest spirit referred to them by one of their fans.

Departing across the ocean just days after Maddie’s decided to quit the show, this trip is supposed to be their last one together. Something’s different this time, though. This time, Maddie finds something: Abigail, the ghost of a girl who lived in the village centuries ago. And the story of the curse that lead to her sacrifice. A curse that has never been broken.

Heart of the Woods is a frigid and magical story, told with all the softness of fresh fallen snow. It features vividly gorgeous art by Rosuuri and anckp, and is Rosuuri’s first ever 18+ game project.”

Now, right off the bat I can attest to this visual novel’s quality. I played the demo and was immediately struck by the moodiness of it once the story got going. The art, music, and story really come together quite well in the important moments to drag you into the atmosphere. I really enjoy the mystery, the ghost girl aspect, and the prospect of some juicy jealousy between the two main girls thanks to the innocent ghost girl’s appearance…

Definitely a VN I recommend checking out. I have high hopes for the completed work (it was even delayed from December to February to iron some things out, which is often a good sign with an independent developer).

One other thing to note: this is an 18+ novel, so we can look forward to spooky yuri sex, but it does not appear to be listed as adult-only on Steam. The patch will probably be released on Studio Elan’s official website, so if you’re a Steam player, check it out on release so you don’t miss out.


And that’s what I’ve got for now! Should I hear of any other surprise announcements this month, I will make a separate post. Remember to support your favorite creators; all the store links are in this post, so you’re just one click away ❤
