Sigh. This had so much potential to be adorable. It did a lot of things right: the art is really cute, the little cafe is unique and interesting, and some of the side characters are hilarious and totally lovable. Unfortunately, the entire thing is ruined by how immensely nonredeemable the main character is!

Hime kicks off the volume by immediately informing the reader that her only goal in life is to convince people that she's as "cute" as humanly possible so she can grow up to be a bil

An unlikable protagonist sinks this slow and silly book. Hime starts out bragging about how she is a gold digger whose main goal is to become a trophy wife. To accomplish this, she pretends to like everyone so they will like her back. A minor accident causes her to become a temporary waitress in a cafe where the staff pretends they are students in an all girls school. Between orders, they act out soap-opera scenes between their characters to entertain the clientele. None of the side characters a ...more

This is both a fun story and a send-up of Class S yuri as a genre. I'm not thrilled with the way people treat Hime (especially since she was forced into the job), but I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops.

I described this to a coworker as "Ouran High School Host Club, but with lesbians" and you know what I stand by that. (Down to the variety of potential romances available to the main character.) I haven't really read a lot of the old-school yuri that this series is parodying but it's still quite funny on its own, and the art is lovely!
Basically, this manga series is about a bunch of gay girls who put up a front in exchange for popularity, peace, or self-protection. It's a spoof of several classic yuri manga tropes while dealing with complications from misunderstandings, manipulation, and mayhem. But mostly it's a lesbian comedy.

If you're not familiar with yuri (wlw) manga tropes, let me start off by saying the extensive use of "sister" when the girls are acting in the cafe is not intended with an incestuous vibe, in fact, ve

Vielen Dank an den Verlag für das Rezensionsexemplar. Hierbei hat mich der Titel angesprochen. Ich liebe einfach Mangas die in einem Cafe spielen und so habe ich mich Hals über Kopf in diesen Mange gestürzt. Man lernt am Anfang Hime kennen, die in der Schule beliebt ist und jeder sagt, das sie süß ist. Natürlich badet sie in dieser beliebtheit, den sie möchte ja auch später einen Reichen Mann heiraten. Dann muss aber auch noch ein Unfall passieren, bei der ihr nichts passiert ist, aber dafür ein ...more

I am conflicted about this manga.
On one hand, I enjoyed the art, the characters and the setting of a theme cafe. On the other hand, it has weird tones. For example, it doesn't seem like girls who are play-acting all-girl school yuri are actually gay girls themselves. I am not a fan of the gayness as a performance, however this cafe doesn't say gay girls it says private all girl school where girls are very close to each other. It might be a play on Class S trope, I don't know enough to make
Adorable volume! Cute innocent girl/girl relationships without being all graphic, what’s there not to like? I’d highly recommend this volume to anyone looking for a sweet funny storyline. I don’t want a bunch of sexual content in my manga, so it was great to read a specifically girl/girl volume that had NONE of that.

Hime is not very likable at the beginning at all, but we can already see character development by the end of volume 1, so I’m looking forward to seeing how she grows. ...more

I picked up this title during a yuri sale on a website I like because I thought the title and the premise behind it was funny. And I’m glad I did!

Quick Thoughts:
- The characters are fun and not what they seem at first glance. Though (the short blonde) Hime annoyed the crud out of me and I didn’t really care for her at first
- Hime has this weird thing she calls her facade that took me a bit to understand at first but you g
Not sure how I feel about this yet. Art is cute and kinda like the tropes being employed, but idk…

This story was completely different than what I thought it was going to be, but in a good way. The summary on the back will have you think this is the standard "girl is straight but meets other girl and starts thinking she's not" but the actual plot is much different. Hime has to work at a cafe after injuring the manager and meets Ayanokouji, who she thinks is physically attractive but Ayanokouji hates her. The problem is Hime uses a cutesy facade to make everyone love her because she wants to n ...more

“Café Liebe 01” habe ich zufällig gesehen und fand den Stil des Covers recht ansprechend, sodass ich es unbedingt lesen musste. Im Mittelpunkt der Geschichte steht Hime, diese hat als Ziel einen reichen Mann zu finden. Als sie eines Tages einer Mitschülerin den Arm bricht, übernimmt sie deren Schicht in einem Themencafé.

Die Handlung um Hime und ihren Kolleginnen fand ich absolut amüsant und unterhaltsam. Es ist humorvoll, aber auch die typischen Zickerein unter Mädchen sind vorhanden

'Yuri Is My Job' is a manga about a young girl who has shaped her life so that she can be adorable and adored by everyone, so that she never has to experience negative social interactions -- unfortunately for her plans, a series of mishaps and manipulations cause her to start working at an elegant girl's-school-themed cafe, and her carefully crafted persona starts to stumble as it bounces off of the parts that the other employees are playing. It's adorable watching her getting flustered by all o ...more

Not a very fun read so far I'd say, mainly because of the abrasive Onee-san. Of course, we learn some stuff about he that explains why she is the way she is late in the book that will be more developed in volume 2.

If you're familiar with Shoujo and Yuri works, I think you'll have fun with this one. If you've ever felt you had to "act" to get by or known anyone who did, this might give you a perspective and lesson on that too. It's a good foundation, it just wasn't maybe what I though

I love “slice of life” stories that don’t necessarily need a “problematic plot” but are character driven. For me, the characters in this book really aren’t that interesting and don’t really have much chemistry between each other. There’s conflict, but it didn’t pique my curiosity like some other “Yuri” titles I’ve recently read that were also “slice of life” character stories.

There is a panel with a line of dialogue that really made me laugh. This volume does also end on a cliffhange
I really liked this one. I found it to be very entertaining. I know very little about the yuri" manga genre, but I think that is why I have started to like reading manga: you always find a different way to tell a compelling story. While being a parody, it also covered many themes that will be relatable to readers: self-esteem issues, friendship, budding romance, identity covers a lot. The story was so engrossing that it made me want to read more. I can't wait to read the next issue!
It's cute, jet kinda basic.
Let me get this straight for a light read inbetween it's perfect.
But there isn't a whole lot happening and the plot that is happening well we've seen it before.
Jet it's really Pretty and for someone who just wants a light Yuri to get the mind of busy everyday stuff it's perfect.

Definitely a great start to a yuri series. This was pretty amusing and a breezy read. The lead is... a little self-centred, but it’s pretty clear that growth and changes are afoot. Framing the story in a cafe that leans hard into yuri tropes is smart because it lets them do real world stuff while still using the all girls school trope.

2.5 stars

I honestly feel like this is a mix of Ouran High School Host Club and Maria Watches Over Us (Maria-sama ga Miteru), and it’s difficult to root for the characters because their cuteness does little to alleviate the heaviness of their negative personalities. I do love the art, though.

LOOOOVVVEEDDD IT!! Yuri is one of my preffered genres, so it was a no duh that I would love this. It is full of tropes and self aware. There is a lot of room for the characters to grow and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Also, the translation notes in this are really informative!
