This was exactly what I hoped for. It's really rare to pick up a yuri manga and flip through it without finding at least one male gaze-y fan service scene, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this one and see the inside was just as cute and sweet as the cover. This felt like yuri written for young queer girls. I even teared up at a few really important lines. And sprinkled throughout are just nice scenes with female friendships and family relationships. It was honestly everything I wanted from ...more

Hmmmm…this is a tricky manga for me to rate and review because whilst I did like it and will be continuing on with the series, there were a few problems with this volume, namely the “relationship” between Nanami and Koito.

Throughout, I felt that there was a lot of pressure directed towards Koito by Nanami to reciprocate the senpai’s feelings which did make me a little uncomfortable. I also get the impression that Koito is asexual and doesn’t have romantic feelings for anyone whereas

Although it isn't likely to last, this first volume of Seven Seas' latest yuri series actually reads more like a story about the relationship between a lesbian and an asexual girl. (Not aromantic, however.) I do hope it continues this way, because there's a serious lack of asexual characters in YA fiction, and this could provide some much-needed representation.

Full review eventually appearing on ANN.

Bloom Into You is yuri (f/f romance) manga about fifteen year old girl Yuu, who enters new school and gets involved in student council. She meets school-president-to-be Nanako. Beautiful and seemingly perfect Nanako falls for her, but Yuu doesn't feel anything about it, Nanako asks Yuu if it's okay for her to woo Yuu and Yuu agrees. That the basic premise of the story, I like the characters and I like their relationship, they definitely mess things up but I appreciate that they actually

"Sometimes love just takes time for the other person to get into, right?"

It was cute and kind of rushed into the insta love but then slowed down a little.
Student council president and second year student Nanami falls for first year student Yuu. She confesses her love for Yuu but Yuu doesn't feel the same way. She waits for the day that a love confession will make her heart flutter. Even though Yuu doesn't feel the same way about Nanami as Nanami feels about her, she wonders if she'll

I'm wary of a lot of Yuri manga because I don't want the stuff that's designed for a cringey, predatory sort of male audience, but this one is definitely worth the read.

The things I really enjoyed about volume one were the art (it's very well drawn) and the characters: lots of interesting side characters that are beginning to get rounded out into interesting, unique people. They have defining traits without becoming one-dimensional and over-the-top with their Thing.

What threw me a little was

- The art is SO CUTE. I heartily approve

- So Yuu, the main character looks like she could be aromantic (and possible asexual, but there was no exploration of sexual desire in this volume, really). I REALLY HOPE THAT THIS IS LEGIT BECAUSE AN ARO (AND POSSIBLE ACE) F/F MANGA WOULD BE EVERYTHING

- I felt like Yuu was kind of mean to Nanami? Like, she grasped her hand one time just to see how she would respond, KNOWING that Nanami has a crush on her. So I thought that was pretty manipulative

I rate mangas differently than books and comics bc I know their tropes are told in a different form than your common Western media.

So...Bloom into you. There's the anime out there I think? But I wanted to first read the manga and I'm surprised how cute it is. The art is lovely and I like that in this case the one who falls in love is the popular girl instead of the freshman. Actually the freshman shows aromantic-asexual traits and I'm curious to see how it develops in the next volumes.

I'm so
I think this might be the first manga that I really enjoyed. The characters and their budding relationship are sweet and feel fairly true to life, and I would happily read more of this series. I shouldn't be surprised that it's yuri manga that grabs my interest.

The art was beautiful and the characters were cute, but the insta-love was SO HEAVY with Nanami's character that I had a hard time appreciating the budding romance. I'm also not really enjoying the general idea of Nanami being content with her unrequited love, though it's obvious that it won't stay that way forever. I also found this to be rather boring overall, sadly!

The content is top notch. I absolutely love this story... in Japanese.

The translation was fairly painful. In several cases, mumbling or off-screen dialog or anything that couldn't fit into a small vertical speech bubble was replaced with vertical lines. Once again I fail to understand how there can be an "adapter" credited when there's so many glaring inconsistencies in name translations. An adapter is little more than a copy editor (which means a second pair of eyes is going over the text after

I'm really impressed at the start. I figured this would be a traditional shojo/yuri manga, but it seems like it's taking a different path. Yuu really reads as asexual or at least still figuring out her relationship with romance and her sexuality. Touka seems to respect Yuu's decisions (even though she does overstep physical bounds without asking a couple of times). I'm interested to see how this series treats the development of this relationship without falling into the trap of "you're only ...more
Bought this yuri manga on a whim after reading a glowing review, and I have to say I have no regrets. While the art is typically cutesy, the story is unexpectedly serious, and not as cliched as these stories tend to be. Of course, it does depend on how the next volume will turn out...but I really want to read that one. Also, something I really love about yuri is how nice the girls-and not just the couple- are to each other.

This is the first yuri manga published in English that matches the quality of Milk Morinaga -- no skeevy fanservice elements like Citrus and NTR, and a serious ongoing plotline unlike the disconnected SOL of Whispered Words. Hopefully the series will continue on like a regular romance series that just happens to feature two girls.

Finding queer manga that isn't fetishistic is challenging, sometimes feeling a bit impossible, but "Bloom Into You" is something really special that refuses to follow those stereotypes. It's a love story but also a story about love as a whole. Exploring the concept of love and falling in love through the two main characters is fascinating, a subject that I'm happy is being explored more and more as society learns more about sexuality and romantic attractions.

The story is about the blooming

I've been keeping my eyes on this series for a while, so I'm happy I finally got the chance to read the first volume. I may have went in with high expectations, though, because while I liked this volume, I do think there were some things that could have made it better.

I loved Nakatani's art and how crisp their characters and scenery looked, and the main characters have aspects of their personalities developed, with a hint of Nanami and Sayaka's brief conflict in chapter 2. Yuu is also a great

I'm very interested in seeing where this is going. It's not at all the straight-up Yuri romance I was expecting. Rather, it seems to be exploring much deeper concepts like coming to terms with your own sexuality, recognizing unhealthy behavior, and figuring just how one is supposed to navigate between such rough waters.

However, this can become very problematic, very quickly. Asexuality is not black and white, sexuality and gender never are. The main protagonist can still develop romantic

Some fudgy moments regarding consent and moments of insta-love on Nanami's part, but overall it was refreshing to see a yuri manga not dictated by the male gaze, that actually explores young queer girls questioning their feelings. It seems that Yuu might be demisexual and aromantic (she repeatedly says she can't imagine herself loving anyone, but does show physical affection), which would be cool. That may evolve as the series goes on, but for now, it was great to see!
This was super cute and fun! The main characters had a nice dynamic that I enjoyed and I also enjoyed the focus on female friendship. Interestingly, the way the main character was written made her seem like she was somewhere on the aroace spectrum? I’m not sure if this was intentional or if it will last but it’d be nice if it did! I hope future volumes expand more on the characters’ personalities but overall this was a solid start to the series!

My first proper venture into this genre and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. It was sweet with gorgeous art. The story is not cliche and manages to be quite serious This first volume avoids the fan service that many manga of this genre have and I hope this series continues to be a romance between two people without the fan service

Yuu is saying a lot of aro-esque stuff in this volume. I really like the friendship between the two girls, and the very put-together girl letting her guard down gives me happy feels. The storytelling in this book is fantastic. It's almost cinematic, and the mood of each scene is so clearly communicated. I love it. It's very well done.

I'd give this a solid 3/3.5 stars. I tend to rate a lot of first vol of manga this way, so I'm not surprised. I feel like some things were a little quick, but at the same time I was expecting it with this type of storyline.

The roles are reversed. The popular council student falls in love with the first year, who has no such mutual feelings and is not dazzled by the beauty.
I like it so far and the art style is very appealing.
