Yeah i can't see this being animated, but then again i don't think it needs to be. It's an adorable little manga and i'd like it to stay that way.

Maybe I'm just hoping for a yuri title that'll be animated that has the potential to become a hit and make to the Top 10 DVDs like how the yaoi title Junjou Romantica is surprisingly kicking ass in DVD sales.

I'm just asking for balance!

The thing is that Junjou Romantica is kinda what I call "fanservice yaoi/yuri". Which is usually the only kind that makes it into anime form. It is very uncommon for a yuri/yaoi story that is just a standard love story to make it into anime form, they all usually have lots of hot characters and random drama or weird events. In other words, the yuri/yaoi aspects are just there for fanservice, the focus usually isn't on the relationships themselves.

ZOMFG, this manga makes me so happy inside. Morinaga Milk is a genius.

I only wish there was more stuff like this. Or that it would go on for another three volumes. It's torture to wait a month for every new chapter. Not that I don't appreciate, quality, though... just have to force myself to wait...

Oh, and regarding earlier confusion, Girl Friends was originally bi-monthly. It switched to being monthly recently.

I really like Nana and Hitomi, but to be honest, I think I like Mari and Akko more. Maybe I'm more of a sucker for angst? And I like the pacing -- how you get to see the two become friends, and Mari's feelings develop. Mari's struggles are so heart-wrenchingly painful, but I guess that's because I can relate. ;__;

Oh, and of course... the latest chapter--!

Spoiler for Chapter 14:


I want to buy all the tankoubun once this manga is finished. And read them all, twenty times each.

In the mean time, I really wish this would get animated. As an OVA, even, like Candy Boy or something. Girl Friends + J.C. Staff = win. But I doubt anything like that would ever happen. Being a yuri manga, even if it did get animated, it would probably be by some low-production studio... sigh.

I understand what you meant, i scanned through that page for like 5 minutes and kept rereading like 30 times. Haven't getting bored yet O__<

The level of detail is just ridiculously awesome. I expected Milk Morinaga must have a personal notebook describing how girl react when they have to deal with emotions

I will stay away for next few days from any Girl Friends discussion thread until translation out. Not gonna spoil my one month efforts.

Hope it will be good, hope it will be good, hope it will be good, hope it will be good...... ^^

You probably want to stay out at that thread in shoujoai.com and probably /u/!

I, unfortunately, didn't so I know what happened! But it's better with pictures with a translated text.

Gah, the raws have been out for a few days, I can't wait for the translation! I have been desperately avoiding most boards and comment sections on related sites that have Girl Friends stuff listed, as I don't want to be spoiled by those that have seen the raws. I imagine that it should be out soon, at least I hope so, that way I'm not further tempted to spoil myself because I want to know what happened. Though I can imagine it still hasn't been resolved yet, and will probably be another couple chapters (thus months ) till we find out what really happens.

EDIT: Word from the scanlators is it is supposed to be out tomorrow night! (the 2nd that is)

A natural progression chapter with FINALLY some insight in Akko's point of view. Ch 16 should be out in about 20 days from now.

Spoiler for maybe about ch 15?:

I hope she drags it a little bit. Like problems with society after their relationship starts.

I'd say perhaps both?

Ah the waiting is a killer.

And yes, I think with Bitter Virgin now gone this is probably the manga I'm most waiting for from month to month to be finished. Though there is other manga I enjoy and am happy when it releases, there aren't really that many that I get bummed about like this when it doesn't come out fast enough. So I'm also fighting the urge to want more, with the knowledge that it would drop quality, as well as fighting against being too much of a fanboy. There is also the added pressure though that I know that as soon as this one finishes she is supposed to pick back up and go into more detail with Nana and Hitomi and Co. which makes me want things to go even faster.
