EDIT: I checked the Comic High entry on Amazon and indeed Nana and Hitomi from Kuchibiru appear in the cover. This is NOT Girl Friends, even if it looks like it:

Didn't even know about the existence of Kuchibiru, just saw the Comic High cover and Girl Friends plastered everywhere and got ahead of myself. Still, nice to see Morinaga back in serialization.

Well, in a postscript, Milk said she loves the couple of the short girl who wear black short hair and the tall girl who wear dyed long hair. Though in the case of Girl Friends, Akko is shorter than Mariko... I think this new series ("Kuchibiru Tameiki Sakura-Iro" = "Lips, Sigh, Cherry Pink") was a prototype of Girl Friends in a sense. (btw, original title of this short story was "Tomodachi ja nakutemo"= "Even if we're not friends". "Kuchibiru..." is a title of her comic, originally.) Anyway, those facts show us that she's not drawing yuri manga for money.

That's why her yuri mangas are extraordinary and I really love them.

"Even if we're not friends" is the title of the first one-shot in the collection. "Kuchibiru Tameiki Sakura-Iro" is the title of the collected tankobon. That's why she's using the latter as the name for this continuation.

Of course, the original Kuchibiru was a collection of one-shots, and not all of them focused on Nana and Hitomi. Now the new continuation is focused solely on Nana and Hitomi, with the aim of finally finishing their story.

Morinaga loves Yuri. Anyone who has been following her career as magaka should know this. Her love for yuri is probably second only to Akiko Marishima's.

This has basically made my 2012! I really hope this does sell and Seven Seas license Morinaga's other Yuri series.

Check out the manga covers for the Girl Friends omnibuses!

http://www.gomanga.com/manga/girlfriends.php

Kind of amused they put a heart on the title as well. I guess it's to reassure the readers that this is REALLY GAY!

I just read a few chapters of this manga... and as I progresses... I'm beginning to feel sorry for the two girls... Well, they can be happy as it last... they may not be aware of the obstacles they have to run through and the things they will miss in life... Good manga,,,

It was clear they knew what they were getting into. What do you think they were so adamant about keeping the relationship a secret, for instance.

All in all, real-life stories of Japanese lesbian couples like that of Husky and Medley show it's not really that hard to make the relationship work in the long run. You just gotta be a little more discrete than with a straight relationship, at least until you start living on your own.

The cover design is really nice, better then the French and the German versions.

I also really like how they are making sure everyone knows its Yuri instead.

One hopes her new work will be what You're Under Arrest should have been!

I think some people especially in the chans prefer to translate the new work as School Police. I am also writing a review on this and there has been raw scans released somewhere. Since I am in a thread that respects the manga and other future works as licensed, I wont be spilling out info here in due respect.

Going back to the topic. it seems that Morinaga has changed styles. I seriously got used to her "Mari + Akko Hairstyle" motive. I guess it's something new! xD

^^ and I pretty thankful that I finally found this thread. haha xD
