Yuri Mangaka General Discussion.

Post by shezaei-neko on Sun Sep 02, 2012 10:16 pm

psyduck

As you know, I've posted some yuri manga recommendations here, and in one of those threads, we said some things regarding the yuri mangaka.
What we were saying was that there aren't many yuri manga that have action in the plot, also that the stories are short and most of the time they don't combine it at all to create something wonderful. And when it looks that they are doing it...BAM!! They screw it up at the end *coughShitsurakuencough*
So we were thinking. Do the yuri mangaka underestimate their audience or potential readers?
Do they feel that just for being yuri we won't enjoy action in the story? Or that we always want some plot-less story full of messy smut? Or that just because it's yuri, the characters have to share the same characteristics like being tame or shy or whatever?

'Cause let's be real, the yuri manga that has action doesn't have that much yuri. And the ones that have yuri, don't have action... (by action I mean battles)
I for one, believe that yuri manga can have lots and lots of action and smut well balanced if the mangaka really wants to please the audience and doesn't feel intimidated by anyone.
Which IMO is what happened with Shitsurakuen.

So what are your opinions on the matter?
Do you think that yuri and action can walk hand in hand? Is it just a fantasy?
What do the yuri mangaka need to realize to make better titles?
Share your thoughts and feelings!

I think there has to be mutual feelings for both characters.
They shouldn't get in the mood just for the sake of that.
Even afterwards, the couple end up acting like nothing has happened and be on their merry way.

I truly believe that action and yuri is possible as long as it's written well,fresh, and reasonable. The pairings have to be meaningful and inspiring.

Yeah, I agree with Bluho xD

Yuri can have action and lots of yuri, but it has to have a good plot... I wouldn't like at all yuri mangas which have lots of kissing and other stuff and battles but the story is really reeeeeaaaaally bad. That's not interesting, a good story before everything else!

Yuri mangakas need to realize.. that people, the readers, also want some new different yuri stories. They just go to easy way of making yuri which they are sure that people likes it.

I agree with what you have said.

I was trying to remember if I've read a manga that is just what Yagamic said. But I couldn't remember any......or maybe Queen's Blade falls in that cathegory?

IMO, Gurenki was heading that way, Yuri with action; great art, love and battles. Too bad it's paused now... ><

Reading about Yuri and Action, there's a manga that comes to mind for me.

It's Hakodate Youjin Buraichou Himegami by Tamaki Nozomu, a manga set in AU archaic Japan. It has yuri and action and it's pretty good imo.

I dunno if the mangaka has any other works out, but if he/she does, I'd certainly give them a go :3

I've posted a thread about that one as a manga recommendation Deepy. Wink

Once of the few with Yuri, Action and Plot. :3

Ya mean dropped. =( Gurenki was my second favorite yuri manga title and I was really saddened to find out it was dropped. ;_; The mangaka prefers yaoi to yuri.

Anyway, yeah: yuri manga needs to desperately spread its genres. Way too many school-life titles. No wonder yaoi is more popular. >_<

Action, supernatural, science fiction, historical - c'mon, gimmie something! D:

Too bad.
It's like Eiki Eiki, the artist of Haru Natsu Aki Fuyu.
She (?) has done yaoi titles before, but I'm not sure if she prefers it over yuri. Now that would be bad.

Dash, do you have a link or something about those old news saying that Gurenki was dropped?

Huh... oddly enough, no. o_O I thought I read that it was a while ago, but I can't seem to find that info anymore. Maybe it's not dropped after all! \^^/ Even if it's been over two years...

I do hope it wasn't dropped.
I still have hope.
Just like I still have hope with CLAMP's manga X. Razz
It would be a shame if it was dropped...
