Aren’t you tired of yuri with cis oversexualized lesbians? Because tbh I really am. That’s why I decied to make a mini-masterpost of all the yuri with trans girls I know of! (Thank you to everyone who told me about some of these!)
Also let’s not speak of Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl because I don’t really think that’s not very good trans representation tbh

Cotton Candy Love: A oneshot about a woman named Kiyoka who used to be in a relationship with another woman named Rika.She defends a young trans girl, Chiaki, when she was being bullied.
Contains: #bullying #transmisogyny #misgendering 
Ayumi and Aika:  A twoshot about a trans woman named Aika coming out to her girlfriend Ayumi, and how she accepts her as who she is.
Contains: #transmisogyny #misgendering Just another warning, it also says things like “gender identity disorder”, which implies being trans is a medical disorder, so that bit might be bothersome.
Double House: A series about Maho, a trans woman who has just moved in town and works at a bar, saves a woman  named Fujiko, who was from a rich family and decided to live on her own, she finds out they both live in the same apartment and, and it shows how their relationship grows.
Contains: #transmisogyny #slurs #transphobic slurs #transmisogynistic slurs #suicide implied #death mention #drugs #alcohol #sexism #kidnapping 


Bonus Stuff:Hourou Musuko (Anime / Manga) : Not really yuri but the protagonist is a trans girl! I dont had a summary or trigger warnings for this one becuase I haven’t watched/read it yet, but I do know it contains #transphobia and #misgendering
Lonely Wolf, Lonely Sheep: Both girls are cis in this 4 chapter manga, but they aren’t oversexualized, and the whole thing is really cute. Its about 2 girls both named Kakimoto Imari, and even though they both have the same name and same birth month and year, they both live very different lifestyles. The story goes on about how they both help each other in their troubles from the present and past. Contains: #abuse #abusive relationships #self harm
I love Mizutani Fuka’s work, and you should check out other yuri by them, such as the anthology Like a Cinderella


If you know any more, please feel free to add to the list!

Yuri manga by women about women (who aren’t in high school)

littlegaywitch:

Sadly a lot of them are one shots, but there’s a few longer ones. A lot of yuri manga is tragically too short and I’m always left wanting more. D: 

After some struggles with myself, I ended up putting stories about college aged women so long as it’s not “innocent school life” heavy. 

Yamaji Ebine

  • Love my Life (this one has a movie. A uni student coming out to her father and finding that her parents were both queer as well.)
  • Indigo Blue (A novelist caught between feelings for her boyfriend but also her feelings for another woman.)
  • Free Soul (22 year old aspiring manga artist writing a manga about a black jazz singer. Artist falls for a trumpeter of a jazz band.)
  • Sweet Lovin Baby (A young woman befriends a lesbian couple and falls for them. With three other short stories.)  

Morishima Akiko

  • Conditions for Paradise- An OL in love with a world hopping freelance journalist
  • We’re Aiming for Love Now (Journalist and a cutie in a cosplay store)
  • Happy Picture Diary - (REALLY FUNNY. An social worker and an editor’s daily life together. All chibi but with some really real lesbian life jokes)
  • Off-Time (an aging lesbian short one shot)
  • 20-Year-Old Girl x 30-Year-Old Maiden- (one shot, a 30 year old sensitive about her age with a 20 year old woman in her art class)
  • Princess of the Stars- (short- almost didn’t make it b/c high school flashbacks but it’s college roomies and it’s short and sweet- and challenges that “girls experiment with girls in high school then grow out of it” thing that people in Japan sometimes think)

Other Artists: 

  • Ohana Holoholo: Torino Shino (Saya lives with her bisexual former girlfriend and her son. Nico, an actor living up stairs and a close friend, drops by for a visit almost everyday.  Somewhat like family, and somewhat not, a story about their lives)
  • My Unique Day-Sakamoto Mano (women in an acting troupe together. one shot)
  • Abracadabra- Tanaka Minoru (a magician and a cute girl dealing with confessing to a girl for the first time)
  • Lonely Wolf, Lonely Sheep- Mizutani Fuka (two women with the same name meet. Warnings for self harm)
  • Cirque Arachne: Saida Nika (Two women working in the circus in a trapeze act. Stellar cute.)   
  • Maple Love- Otsu Hiyori (meeting in college; really cute)

Two that I recommend but are set apart from the others because one is written by a man and one is written with the male audience in mind respectively

This is by no means an exhaustive list and I know there’s more (one particularly that I wanted to put on here but couldn’t remember the title of) so feel free to add on your favorite adult queer lady manga to the list!

comixology:

A comiXologist Recommends:
Jen Keith recommends Watson & Holmes Vol. 1

“When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”
-Sherlock Holmes 

Or in this case: when you have eliminated your comic to-read list, whatever remains, however good, it must be Watson and Holmes that you read next.

Modern adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and the steadfast Doctor Watson are in vogue with BBC’s Sherlock and CBS’ Elementary. Karl Bollers and Rick Leonardi, with their own avant garde take, move the now African American pair from England and into Harlem, NYC for investigations into drug trafficking, kidnapping, murder, and more. 

Despite the contemporary setting and subsequent changes to what we expect from a Holmesian story, it’s still entrenched in Doyle’s writing. Many crime dramas turn into procedural cop shows; Watson and Holmes keeps us in Watson’s shoes, observing Holmes’ genius while he himself steps into the spotlight as a force to be reckoned. As a fan of the original work I’m thrilled they maintained that quintessential vantage point while giving Watson the attention he deserves. Nods to the source material are scattered throughout, so fans of any version of Holmes and the uninitiated reader alike will find an engaging mystery for all tastes. 

Leonardi’s art keeps the distinct personalities of the characters and New York City intact. I never realized I was missing a Sherlock Holmes with dreadlocks in my life, but I was. Meanwhile, Mycroft and the Baker Street Irregulars a treat, and I eagerly await more of them. 

You may be familiar with a more traditional interpretation, but I highly recommend you pick up Watson and Holmes Vol. 1 for the collected issues #1 – 5 and a breath of fresh air in these well-loved characters. After all, the game is afoot.

[Read Watson & Holmes Vol. 1 Here!]

For fans of: crime, drama, action

Jen Keith is a Digital Editor at comiXology, comic artist, music addict, and would like you to know that Holmes never said “Elementary, my dear Watson” in the original stories.
