At Momoyama High School, an all-girls school, the blunt and outgoing Chitose Hayami meets the timid and cute Yae Sakura when she offers to help her separate trash that was put in the wrong bin. Admiring Yae's kind heart, Chitose nominates the two as class representatives against Yae's will.

Later that day, to Yae's surprise, Chitose confesses her feelings to the former, telling her that she resembles her first love. In return, Yae explains that she was rejected by her middle school crush, a girl, and therefore hates being a girl herself. Chitose replies that she loves Yae the way she is. Enraptured by the sentiment, Yae begins to spend more time with Chitose.

Centered around the relationship that blooms between the two girls, Hanjuku Joshi explores the depth of human sexuality and the way adolescents view themselves and each other.

Hanjuku Joshi was published in English by ALC Publishing on the now defunct site JManga. Only one volume was released. It was also published in French by Taïfu Comics and in German by Egmont Manga.

This is one of my favorite yuri manga. Although I usually prefer romances between adults, the way the two main characters navigate their feelings for one another, and explore their feelings on gender and sexuality, is done in a way that feels authentically high-school—and I mean that in a good way.

Story: 8/10

Story-9: I have to admit, the concept for this story is pretty interesting, you almost never see girls who have feminine complexes in manga, and if you do, they always end up being colorful characters that you grow to love. And the side story with Mari and Ran was a little bonus that I enjoyed, teacher x student stories always end up being more perverted then they should be but this one was handled nicely with the student taking part as the seme in the relationship, which is another rarity, and as well as the student x teacher pairing being yuri, well that just makes ...

Yuri Manga. About Yuri Love. When I saw that it was, I wasn't too interested, but I read it anyway. It was short. BUT, it has pretty good characters, and overall, it really showcases Girls Love quite well; In a way that's natural.

Contains nudity, and 'softcore' material. And there is no obscene language.(yay) But these aren't the real focus, though if you didn't pay attention, it would seem that way. (^o^). Overall,I enjoyed it. It brought me some memories of some of my friends who have 'yuri' tendencies. And I think some more understanding ...
