Preliminary Spoiler
Oct 15, 2019
In general, yuri has had a rather mixed history, and a myriad of series that don’t take themselves seriously and/or suffer from poorly-written characters and narratives have made the rounds in the past few years. Thankfully, Yagate Kimi ni Naru (Bloom into You) avoids these issues, placing well-written characters into an engaging and thoughtfully crafted narrative to create a moving coming-of-age story.

Story (10/10): YagaKimi presents a believable and well-paced narrative that takes readers on an emotional journey of self-discovery as an unlikely friendship blooms into love, while exploring socially important issues such as loss, loneliness, gender roles, and the meaning of love itself. No event ...

I'm not a yuri adept.
Indeed, it's the first time I've read a yuri.
I had watched one yuri named Sakura Trick, which I found cute but limited. After that first experience with yuri, I was hoping to find one which would be something more than just cute. And I've found it with Yagate Kimi ni Naru.


The basis of the story is quite basic and might not be the main asset of Yagate Kimi ni Naru.
The main character, Yuu Koito, seems unable to fall in love. She meets a senpai, Nanami Touko, who is very popular but rejects systematically everyone who confesses to her. ...

First loves are always identical and always different. The audacity of writer and illustrator Nio Nakatani's "Bloom Into You" lies not so much in the fact that it tells the story of a same-sex first love, but rather as a unique and delicate exploration of self-discovery, identity, and the complexities of love between two young girls. While there have been plenty of romances not unlike this, there's never been one told in such an ambitiously immersive manner.

Bloom Into You focuses on Yuu Koito, a first-year student who is convinced to join her school's student council. She runs into Touko Nanami's mid-love confession, turning down the ...

There is a certain thing I do when I want to be sure I'm judging shoujo-ai or shounen-ai fairly - I think about wheter I would rate it the same if the story was about a heterosexual couple. And by that I mean examining whether the character depth and relationship developement is interesting by itself or whether those are replaced by just being gay and the romance itself is shallow. In other words, it's removing fetishizing of yuri or yaoi from the lenses of judgement - "Is it good because they are the same sex, or is it good because they are actually interesting characters?"

Did ...

Never before have I been so captivated by a story.

Both the anime and the manga are amazing, but I would say that this is miles above what the anime was able to achieve. This has set the bar so high that I'm actually a little worried that I won't be able to find something like this again.

Seeing each character grow and learn to know each other and, most importantly, themselves is a great sight. It doesn't contain any sort of over the top stereotyped characters or anything like that; the characters are actually... normal. That is what you want in this type of story, to ...

So this will be my first manga review I guess although I’ve written a few for myself already but anyway. Just a slight warning, there will be some spoilers regarding this story, the manga „his and her circumstances“(further referred to as Karekano) and the anime „Hibike euphonium“. These spoilers are surface level for the most part but if they're not they are marked as such so you can skip over them. This turned out quite a long review so if you don’t like to read a lot of text then now would be the time to go and do something else ^^

Preliminary (50/50 chp)
As a lover of yuri/shoujo ai series I'm sometimes hesitant about starting an ongoing yuri/shoujo ai manga especially one that had less than 4 chapters available when I first came across it, but I was immediately drawn to this manga and God did I fall in love with it. The first thing that caught my eye was the art, the artwork in this manga is incredible and beautiful, then the characters were what kept me reading.

It certainly isn't a masterpiece or a unique series, it doesn't try to be more than it is, it's also not melodramatic like citrus or filled with absurd amount ...

Preliminary (19/50 chp)
I used to be a heavy yuri/shoujo-ai reader. And this is work is the first of its kind for me in the sense of how the characters are.

I think this Manga displays a very complex way of love.
Touko fulfills a very difficult phenomenon. To love/like someone when the other person doesn't love you. Also, the idea that love means nothing but wanting, needing and using someone. I don't think many can relate to this idea of love.
This story/ character development portrays a way of distance and closeness like I have never seen before in this exact form.

I don't see anyone else talking about ...

Preliminary (6/50 chp)
I am writing this as chapter 6 has just been released, January 2016. Also Yagate came into my life as I was on the height of my BL obsession, so I might be a bit bias to this and don't really see the flaws because it was a welcome change at that time. I apologize for this.

The series centers around a girl named Yuu who, big surprise, is a freshman in high school and doesn't know what club to join. She is convinced to help out in the student council where she meets the student council president, a girl named named Nanami Touko who ...

This review may contain minor spoilers but I assure you I would try to keep it to the minimum. I'll include a couple of materials from other official sources for my review.

This is a love story about Yuu and Touko. Like everyone else in the early part of our lives, Yuu is at a stage where she does not understand the phenomenon of love. But as the story progresses, her encounter with Touko, little by little, has changed her.

Generally, on the surface, Shōjo manga or love songs make the occurrence of love seem so simple. But in reality, love is a complicated application. It comes ...

Having finished publishing recently, I decided to binge Bloom into You manga, and I was pleasantly surprised. It's an excellent manga, but lacks quite a few things.

I've watched the anime before reading anime (and TROYCA indeed did it justice), but the anime barely compares to the manga in terms of content.

The story isn't very complicated, it's quite obvious from the get-go who are the two main girls, and the story was mostly straightforward.

While it didn't have too much drama it, I disliked how the manga handled Saaya, but at the same time I have to applaud the mangaka for making most (if not all) ...

I don't usually write reviews, but Yagate Kimi ni Naru is too good for me not to let others know why.

You can see other reviews calling it 'boring' and I can understand in some way why.
Usually, anime is used to show us a fantastic fantasy-based world with perfect people with supernatural powers, however, bloom into you is NOT like that, because it's a very realistic manga which is supposed to come across as a cute story of two high schoolers who fall in love.

Bloom into you is very unique as an lgbtq story in the first place, because it's well done:
- absolutely no sexualization ...

Fair warning, I am not experienced with reading a lot of yuri type manga, so please take my review with a grain of salt.

Simply put, I genuinely loved this series, it portrayed an excellent and well-written story of two people discovering themselves and learning about 'love' in an organic and relatively natural way.

Nakatani Nio manages to find the beauty in a simple story. Through Yagate Kimi no Naru, with generally no extremely drastic and overtly complicated storylines, Nakatani is still able to present a story that perpetuates itself and keeps itself interesting. Even though it is merely a slice of life essentially depicting the average ...

Bloom Into You is a “Shoujo Ai” manga series written and illustrated by Nio Nakatani. It is later adapted into an anime series by studio TROYCA. It is a series about two high school girl students determining their own desires, the meaning of self-appreciation, the worth of self-discovery and learning what love truly is. Now to give you some context, I didn’t really expected to love this series the way I do now because of its premise. At first, I was lukewarm about starting the series. I was afraid of wasting my time on some girl on girl romance lovey-dovey anime. But, I was determined ...

Yagate Kimi Ni Naru Manga: overall a 10/10.

The storyline was well planned out and written. It had an interesting plot, making me want to read more of the manga after watching the anime. (Yes, I watched the anime first.) I also liked that Yuu didn't fall in love with Touko since she's "The Perfect Role Model" but fell in love when Touko showed that she had changed. When I read the chapter where she realized she fell in love with Touko, I felt that the reasons why Yuu fell in love with her made sense. She didn't fall in love with Touko's replacement. She fell ...

So, I'll be up-front in saying that I have not read a lot of manga, barely a handful of series, and I watched the anime adaptation of YagaKimi before picking up the manga to finish off the story. I'll also be up-front in saying that it is my #1 all-time favorite anime, so its possible I may be a little biased.

An absolutely fantastic yuri story, easily the best one that I am familiar with. The story sort of jumps right into the water with an early confession, but due to Koito Yuu's personality, sexuality and lack of experience she doesn't really know how she feels. ...

What we need is a season 2 of this manga since I had to pick this up to know what happens towards the end.

I wrote a review on the anime and seeing how they share similar theme of identity, it’s both great to read or watch the anime. I did both as I really loved the anime and read this afterwards.

Sometimes we question in life who is the real us but the answer isn’t that simple. As we all wear mask as we are a different person to different people and that’s not terrible in itself. There’s different time we need to be different people ...

Yagate Kimi ni Naru or Bloom Into You is a Shoujo-Ai manga which in my opinion really has the potential to get more people interested in the quite sparse fanbase of Shoujo-Ai. It's also quite a short read, so the time investment is not that high. In the following paragraphs I will explain why I think of this manga so highly.

Story 9/10: I think that the story is the weakest part of this manga although that is of course compared to the other great aspects of this manga. Our protagonist is Yuu Koito, who is a freshmen in highschool. She likes to read Shoujo novels ...

Bloom Into You is, without a doubt, one of the best coming of age love stories that I’ve ever read. Yuu is a young girl that dreams of experiencing the dazzling love that she sees through books and film. Despite this, she doesn’t find herself feeling at all excited when faced with romantic prospects. There is also some wonderful aromantic and demiromantic representation that I didn’t expect to find in this manga, and the subtle differences between each are written well.

The story is paced well, while many romances fall back on overblown drama to keep the narrative going with many ups and downs, Bloom Into ...

Preliminary (21/50 chp)
Compared to many other yuri series out there -- you know the ones, full of fan service or extremely high on the melodrama or the will-they-won't-they -- Yagate Kimi ni Naru's most outstanding characteristic is definitely its well-developed characters. Apart from the first two chapters, which feel a little bit rushed, because they just want to set up the story, it's also incredibly well paced.

Both main character bring their own interpretation of love to the table, fundamentally and diametrically opposed -- Touka, who's fallen hard for Yuu, and knew immediately and now wants everything out of their relationship that normally goes along with such. Yuu, ...
