Prism is a yuri manga written and illustrated by Shou Higashiyama. My score is based on the first five chapters of an unknown total at the time of this writing.

Prism has been a special experience. As much as I love yuri, I find that a truly enjoyable yuri story is rare; it doesn’t help that noteworthy works in the genre usually fall into one of two extremes of a) pornography or b) stories about close – but not explicitly romantic – relationships between girls. Prism is an exception that not only lies comfortably in the middle, very near my ideal, but is executed beautifully. It read more

I'm really not a fan of yuri. It's usually bland, pornographic, stereotypical, plusl misleading towards actual lesbian relationships.This is an exception. I read all of the chapters in one day and it's still playing in the back of my mind. And it's not at all unpleasant.

The story is best summed up by the word "cute". The portrayal of Megumi and Hikaru's relationship itself is truly brilliant, especially for such a short story. Both characters are well rounded and believable.

prism is a non-h yuri manga by higashiyama shou/"show higashiyama" serialized in the bimonthly magazine tsubomi. (i use "bimonthly" here to mean it comes out once every two months.) chapter 5 is the newest as of this writing, released about two weeks ago by futari wa pretty anon. (because of the "extra" chapter 3.5, by myanimelist's numbering, this is chapter 6.)

normally i wouldn't review something while it's still running, but i suppose i can indulge myself a bit and hopefully attract more eyes to this excellent manga at the same time.

i was already a fan of h.show from his past work, which is hopelessly different. read more

Prism is a yuri Manga that deals with the problems that naturally follow after falling in love with the same sex.
Admitting your interest, getting together, being open about it to your environment and of course getting judged for it, are only some of the many problems this Manga deals with.
As you can see this is a rather realistic depiction of a romance, in this case a lesbian relationship. And this is exactly the point which makes this Manga so enjoyable.

Most of the Yuri Manga you can find, either show Yuri as a side story only, or present it in a rather unrealistic and sometimes read more

Manga: Girl Friends
These stories are very similar. They're both cute shoujo ai stories about two girls who fall in love unexpectedly and the problems that they face. If you like one, you'll like the other.

Manga: Pie wo Agemasho, Anata ni Pie wo ne
both works focus on transition from friends to girlfriends, and the subsequent complications of that relationship. Art is cute! Although Prism is more explicit (nsfw)

Manga: Asagao to Kase-san.
Both are relatively short shoujo-ai manga with pleasant art styles and a cute main couple. While both have some nsfw scenes, the main focus is still romance and the girls' daily lives and as a result don't feel overly fanservice-y

Manga: Sasameki Koto
Shoujo ai (female x female) and seinen (male targeted) but also with good character development that usually comes with shoujo (female targeted) manga.

Prism is more explicit (borderline yuri).

Manga: Philosophia
Mature-themed yuri in a school setting. A balanced mixture of drama and fluff.
