New Yuri manga "Prism" by Higashiyama Shou, neither pornographic or light friendship with shallow feelings, is this balance what we have been waiting for?

Post by midori's crazy398 on Wed Jun 13, 2012 11:47 pm

Hey guys, I just finished reading this awesome new manga online called "Prism". It's a great and well excecuted yuri manga that I think us yuri fans will enjoy very much. This manga is a welcome change from the usual porn/light shallow romance you usually tend to see in yuri One shots and some yuri manga series. It's pretty realistic, the way the characters actions and personalities are written and drawn out. It follows a girl named Megumi who thinks she has gotten over her first love from Grade School. Her Middle School years were boring, and now that she is in High School she is determined to find love and get over her boyfriend of the past. On the first day of HS, she meets a beautiful girl whom she thinks is cute. The girl hugs Megumi and is glad to see her. The beautiful girl is later revealed as Hikaru, the same "boy" that Megumi was in love with years ago. Eventually the two girls admit their feelings and must deal with coming out to their friends plus dealing with homophobia from outsiders, all while growing their love for each other.You guys should definitely read it. Here's the link to the chapters: http://www.mangahere.com/manga/prism_higashiyama_shou/


P.S. The manga is ongoing, I believe the release is bi-monthly, however it has currently been placed on hiatus (rumor has it) so you'll have to wait for chapter 7

I like the summary you laid out for us, it has a sense of down to Earth realism. :) I've been watching too many over-the-top fantasy yuri titles as of late. I'll be back with an review of this. Thank you, Midori!

@Zanekal1

I know right? The couple is hilarious and spicy as the story continues, the way they are portrayed actually makes them feel realistic for a change in the Yuri genre.

So, I have a thing for certain art styles and the this title pretty much had me hooked when I saw the cover. I read the first chapter, and it's so freaking adorable! I can't wait to read the rest of it. Kind of bummed that it's ongoing, because it means I'll have to wait when I finish what they have released now, but oh my gosh!

You rock Midori!

@Twi

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. Supposedly the reason for Prism's hiatus is because the author/artist was accused of tracing an image to create one of the panels in Prism. The editorial staff is looking into the case, but hopefully if all goes well for Shou, we will have a chapter in August. So yeah, its gonna be a long wait for #7

@ Midori:

Whaaaaat? O.o
Which panel was the did they think was traced?

Well, I finished just now, and oh my gosh oh my gosh! That was the cutest, sweetest, thing evar! Can't wait till the next one comes out.

It was pretty funny how they made out almost every other panel though. XD But still, adorable.

@Twi

I'm not really sure which panel it was, but Shou denied tracing the image, however he did admit to using the image as reference to create accused panel. I just hope they clear things up quickly, I need more Hikaru X Megumi damnnit! Oh I wanted to ask, what was your fave scene from the manga? Mine is when they find out Ogawa left a porno for them to "study" and when they found it they had a huge wtf moment xD

@ Midori:

Aww, well I hope they get it cleared up too. At least he manned up to using it as a reference, which to me doesn't seem like such a giant deal. It's not exactly the same, because it's with his own characters, obviously. If I were the other guy I wouldn't get offended, but maybe I'm just too lenient.

Oh gosh, that's a hard question. I'm never really good at picking favorites because I'm extremely easy to please. I loved that scene. XD I laughed so hard, Raven asked what was wrong with me.

I think if I had to chose, it'd be when Megumi asked Hikaru if she wanted to have sex, and she was like, maybe that wasn't the best place to start.

First chapter was good enough to make me want to read the rest, which doesn't happen very often lol I like the art style too, which is something can be quite picky about, Razz Bit put off by the fact that it's ongoing, and on hiatus, but I will be patient :3

Great find Midori-chan, thanks for sharing! :D

@Illiterate Koi

The art is pretty cool, the only issue I have is that some of the charcter's faces appear to look the same, so sometimes I can only tell character's apart by their hair. I'm glad you liked it, the rest of the manga is awesome when you finish it you'll definiately want more : D

I've been reading this for a while now. I really enjoy the realistic feel to their relationship. Hikaru by the way is beyond adorable and goofy and Megumi is so deliciously awkward at times that it makes this such a treat to read. It's like 'Wife & Wife' in the way it balances the humor with some serious moments.

You can't deny Hikaru copping a feel in public on the school trip wasn't pure gold. I was rolling after reading that page for minutes. Not to mention the chapter where Megumi sleeps over Hikaru's house...This manga is just full of so many great moments that I really look forward to every release.

Best moment for me might have to be the scene where Megumi gets Hikaru in bed and finally cops a feel and then they cuddle. Just adorable. Seriously. I just love this manga. It's great. So I hope they clear up this whole 'tracing' business quickly.

A lot of artists have that problem, look at Nanzaki Iku, I love love love the art, but ALL the characters look pretty much the same, just with different hair XD

@Kona

I kno what you mean, there were so many moments where I could see myself doing those same things, this couple is realistic enough that I kinda feel a connection with them and their adventures, it's pretty cool : D, and yeah, Hikaru trying to cop a feel is awesome lol
