Oh my lord, friends, if you feel like drowning in a sea of yuri drama, tears, and panty shots, then have I got a Complete Collection for you.

It’s… it’s shmoopy, for lack of a better term. There’s enough wide-eyed adorableness to keep even the most starved manga-loving romantic happy. Adorable schoolgirl uniforms! Adorable study sessions! Adorable make out scenes! So. Much. Adorableness.

Will Nana be able to date her longtime best friend without anyone finding out? Will Natsuka be able to express

Rating: 4/5 – When the cherry blossoms bloom, love is in the air…

Yaoi manga (stories involving relationships between two men) have been available for some time in the mainstream Western comics market, but it has taken a considerable amount of time for its counterpart – Yuri – to make the same pilgrimage. When I was a humble manga reviewer for another website, I was given a considerable amount of yaoi manga to review. Which I did, even though it really wasn’t my cup of tea (my wife, however, love

My love for Milk Morinaga's work knows no bounds, and this is no exception. She writes ADORABLE yuri manga that is precious, adorable, and fills you with happy heart warm fuzzies. I was outright giggling aloud through most of the book.

The part that makes her work special, though, is that she doesn't just write cute girls in love - she writes real people in real relationships. These characters have super sweet romance, using all the tropes of manga romance, while also discussing how to make a rom

When I began reading this, I assumed it was a coherent story, but it quickly became clear it was instead a collection of short stories, about students at an all-girls high school, falling in love with each other and learning how to express that love. The stories are all warm, sweet, and mostly innocent.

But they're also frustrating, because they are so short. Some of the characters overlap, but their stories don't. At one point, it looks as if the first few chapters will introduce different chara

Je n'ai pas de mots. C'est avec un avis très mitigé que je ressors de cette lecture pleine de clichés et qui m'a paru très - trop - enfantine. J'attendais quelque chose de moins mièvre, une histoire mettant en scène des personnages avec des réflexions et un cheminement intellectuel plus mature que ce soit sur le sujet de leur orientation sexuelle ou de l'Amour en général. J'ai trouvé le récit parfois éclaté du fait de passages d'une intrigue à l'autre mal marqués. Ainsi c'est un peu déroutant de ...more

There are other reviews that say all there is to say about this book and they are right. While GIRL FRIENDS focused on the struggle to come to terms with a non-hetero sexuality and embarking on a closeted relationship, KISSES, SIGHS, AND CHERRY BLOSSOM PINK discusses coming out, sexually prejudiced friends, experimentation, normative relationship roles, and the lure of running away. All wrapped up with sailor uniforms and pretty bows in Morinaga's adorable artwork.

Cute and entertaining, definitely on the softer side of Yuri manga. Recommended (and subsequently lent to me) by a friend. It was a quick read, but I don't regret the decision.

Cute with realistic relationships and an enjoyable art style. Although 50% of the book is mismatched stories about secondary characters.

Recommends it for: Fans of Milk/light Yuri
Recommended to Kereesa by: Jay
An adorable anthology by Milk, who I first discovered through her series Girl Friends: The Complete Collection 1. This anthology deals with a series of characters from the same school, but unconnected to the characters in Girl Friends. Its cute, fluffy, and utterly sweet. Definitely a keeper for those who love the mangakan and her style of yuri.

Good book, very much enjoyed it A mix of short stories and a ongoing romance between two girls, much like Girlfriends.

I do wish some of the shorts were continued. *lol* The Prince story was a RIOT, as was the story about the shy writer and her new girlfriend.

My only complaint would be the lack of chapter title pages & such. It can be hard to tell when one story ends and the next begins.

I really, really enjoyed this - super cute art and a super cute story with some serious moments. I especially liked the part where Nana tells Hitomi they're equals and there's no need for them to act out the traditional roles of a heterosexual relationship.

But mostly, it's a really adorable story about adorable girls in love with each other.

This was such a cute manga. The bond between Nana and Hitomi was so sweet, and they really care about each other. I also really love the story "Kiss, Love, And My Prince" but I wish it had been just a little longer. Anyone who likes cute shoujo ai and yuri should read this.

The art is so cute! Might be a 3.5, really, but I did like it. You can read my full review at No Flying No Tights.

I loved the romance in this book made you feel like you were with all the characters such a deep love story between all the friends. I would like to read more of these versions if their were more. I do highly recommend it.

I can't lie. This was ungodly adorable. If you like blushy girls falling in love with other blushy girls, you'll like it. The characters - particularly Hitomi and Nana - are great. It's sweet fluff of the best kind.

Another charming collection of yuri (lesbian) manga stories by Morinaga Milk. It's so very refreshing to read a yuri manga aimed at women and deals with actual romance as opposed to hard core 'lesbian' hentai aimed at men.
I will never get over how cute this anthology is. I love Milk Morinaga's style so much. The art is adorable, and the romance is squeal-worthy. These girls are so gay. So so gay. And I love it.
