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.
- 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.)
- 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)
- 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
- Kusari ha mou iranai- Uso Kurata; two Office ladies
- Octave- Akiyama Haru (seinen manga; a talent manager and a songwriter)
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!
I like to think that maybe Bucky rescues an American Pit Bull and they rehabilitate each other!
you all think cap 2 fucked me up. wait until cap 3 comes out. i’ll see you fuckers in therapy.
jäger (german): hunter
This was the point in the movie where I was sold. Completely and 100% in love. I remember grabbing Trey’s arm and pointing at the screen and speaking very very frantically. “Honey, honey look! Look the suits and the gears are worn, there are chips in the paint! The details!”
So often today movies, especially ones with sizable amounts of cgi, are all about the gloss and the shiny. They don’t take care in the little details. Like how these two Rangers have been piloting Gipsy together for a while, and the movie shows that, it doesn’t just tell you that. And not just in how well Yancy and Raleigh fight together, but in the little details, like chips in fucking paint.
Reblogging for above commentary.
This was also my moment, too. I slid down in my seat til I was almost falling out of it and clutched Mezi’s knee so hard I might have scraped her skin THROUGH her jeans. For me (since I’d been forewarned to look out for the realism of the weathering on the kit) it was the many stages of getting strapped in and suited up - quite literally the process of attaching themselves, body and mind, into the machine, in ways that are not easy to quickly pop out of, in ways that translate not only the power but the pain of the machine into their own bodies.
The movie doesn’t just claim that the pilots fuse with not only each other but also the body of their jaeger; it shows us. The effort and pain and skill and strength required for this job is evident in every motion, and it wouldn’t have, couldn’t have been, if it was CGI with actors on greenscreens. The physical effort is apparent in every touch.
Reblogging for reference. The details might come in handy for posts about Drivesuits someday.
Captain America in Avengers Assemble
Ok but that post that’s like ”WHAT WOULD A CORRUPT FIREMAN EVEN LOOK LIKE??”
Here’s what it would look like:
- Refusing to put out fires in poor or minority neighborhoods
- Claiming that fires in poor or minority neighborhoods were too far away or that there was “nothing that we could do”
- Refusing to hire firefighters of color
- This stuff has happened before, you guys
- Institutions with power will pretty much inevitably attract people who want to abuse that power
- Please stop thinking that it’s only “certain” powerful institutions that we need to keep in check
- Please stop thinking that it’s only the police that reflect our societal prejudices
- All of our institutions of power will reflect our societal prejudices unless we stay active, vocal, and informed to prevent this sort of stuff from happening!!
- Please stop reblogging that post
