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 just might be changing the face of what we think is perverted and what is actually a portrayal of physical expression of passion.

I've never read ecchi manga before, but after hearing good things about Hanjuku Joshi in yuri circles, I thought I would give it a go. What I was expecting was lame fanservice and ugly, unromantic sex scenes full of shallow girls just doing it for doing it's sake and to titillate the audience.

How wrong I was.

What Hanjuku Joshi paints is a lovely story about two girls who fall in love with one another, and explore both sex and sexual desire with read more

Yet again we have another Yuri, Romance set in an all-girls school and Hanjuku Joshi may seem like any typical sweet story; however there’s more to it than meets the eye and I’m not just talking about the mature, girl-on-girl action.

Yae is a girl who’s never felt comfortable about being such a girly girl, so she enrols into an all-girl’s school, in order to feel more at ease with herself. It’s there that she becomes close friends with Chitose, the tomboy of the school and it’s not long till Yae begins to develop feelings beyond that of ‘just friends’. Well so far there’s nothing out read more

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 read more

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. Since this is both the characters’ first relationship and their first girl-girl relationship, there’s a lot of clumsiness in figuring things out, and it’s portrayed beautifully.

Story: 8/10

The story sounds like so many other yuri manga: two high-schoolers in an all-girls’ school meet up and realize their attraction toward one another. As their relationship read more
