Fun show, kiss scenes great, bewildering number of people misunderstand the ending, manga scanlations MIA forever.
not the best, but a runner up
Again, because subtext. Same principle as to why a scantily clad woman is more arousing than a naked woman: teasing keeps the imagination going + people often want what they can't have.
People want them because they are the only good part of the series.
The main pair is as disabled as it can get. There is absolutely nothing you can get out of them since one is a gluttonous, genuinely stupid person, who has the mental age of a 4-year old, spiced up with jealousy issues, while the other is a socially inept pervert, who is as thick as a neutron star.
Mitsuki kaichou is out of the loop, since she shlicks to Haruka every night and Rina also has a one-sided crush on Mitsuki.
Now that covers 2/3rd of the whole manga, there are the rest: the married couple and the manzai couple. While the married couple provides true satisfaction, they don't have many scenes and they are stagnant, they don't go anywhere.
That's why people look forward to Yuzu and Kaede, because that's where they can expect some development. And since they are comic relief characters, their relationship is more ligthearted than the others.
People always wish for more, that's why they look forward to the interactions of characters, who are not together yet.
Fanworks have always been spurred in large part to "fill in the blanks" even if there aren't blanks to be filled in.
In this sense, when the show is already carrying the weight with two/three couples, it leaves the fans' energies to be focused on the one couple that isn't bonafide.
>one is a gluttonous, genuinely stupid person, who has the mental age of a 4-year old, spiced up with jealousy issues
When Kaede explained why she'd become class rep, I kept waiting for her to deliver a punchline. But she didn't and I realized that cringeworthy shit was entirely supposed to be serious.
I don't often say this, but I prefer them as friends to provide contrast.
and that's just the thing, they will never get any development because Kaede would have the unrequited love for her friend. Kaede would make a joke/flirt but just play it off as a joke to tease Yuzu, and even when she would be acting serious the idiot still wouldn't get a hint.
So people are actually more interested in this gag? This is why I rather them stay friends than deal with the frustration of no development.
Yuu is fucking annoying in general and Haruka suddenly develops mental issues just to keep the status quo and nip any development in the bud the moment it could arise. Haruka is clearly in love with Yuu, so pairing her up with Mitsuki would be a terrible thing.
Kotone and Shizuku are nice, but they are given way too little focus, plus there was the whole arranged shit that's way overdone and fucking grating.
Meanwhile we have Kaede who is very enjoyable to watch thanks to her prankster antics and she has absolutely great chemistry with Yuzu who is also a rather likable character as well. They are the best freaking thing about the whole franchise.
Literally nobody argues whether Haruka and Yuu are lesbians or not. The entire fandom agree that they are.
The argument is about whether those two know themselves are lesbians. Truth: they do. You're a retard if you believe otherwise.
You're a bunch or retards. If Haruka was aware that she's fucking in love with Yuu, then she realizing her feelings wouldn't be the fucking current arc of the manga raws. Yuu already realized her feelings and in one of the latest chapters she tells Haruka "I love you. I'm waiting for you."
Haruka really is mentally challenged when it comes to love, so she's still pretty confused about all this. Slowly, she's starting to realize what she feels for Yuu is not just friendship. She's not quite there yet though.
I'm the editor of ST and as far as I know we haven't dropped it yet, even if the translator isn't translating. I'm the first who's tired of waiting, at this point I'm a free agent, if anyone is willing to translate, I can edit and typeset.
>there are a bunch of lawless dykes kissing each others everywhere in public
>ships some subtle subtext
Well, if anything, yurifags are conditioned to fill lesbian-shaped holes with lesbian-shaped pegs, so to speak.
But we are a greedy bunch. Land of No Night throws us a bone, doesn't bother with the usual bland male Tales protag reject, and everybody's suffering emotional implosions because they aren't going far enough.
With the crawling pace of the scanlations, imagine if they lost time translating the older chapters. The anime covers those chapters word by word, at least we got some new content by skipping them.
>Yuu is fucking annoying in general and Haruka suddenly develops mental issues just to keep the status quo and nip any development in the bud the moment it could arise.
This. Not to mention the execsive amount of perverted camera shots and kissing service, that's what killed for me the entire show. I was like: "WTF?! Are you serious?! Fuck this shit!"
>I was like: "WTF?! Are you serious?! Fuck this shit!"
>fanservice and girls kissing ruined this yuri show for me
Out with you.
Literally why did Haruka randomly become stupid not even halfway through?
This show was cute, but I honestly can't care about their pairing more than any other pairing I want to see, hetero or yuri, because they just didn't give you enough reason to. All the kissing and camera shots legitimately took time away from fleshing out their personalities.
So Tachi announced today that she will have a new serialization on Kirara Forward called "soukaku kankei". No idea how long this is going to run but she said a while a ago that she really wanted to draw a full blown manga rather than 4-komas, so I guess her wish came true. Sakura Trick will also continue alongside the new manga.
>And who would want something horrible such as development in a story?
See, this is why I stopped watching anime long after I stopped watching TV and movies. Manga gloves you things like Murcielago which would be censored or butchered to death.
I'm just gonna wait for safe yuri, blood related incest, harem building or any other fun shows to pop up. Maybe I'll eventually go back to Arc-V if I'm not too busy napping or shitposting.
Meh, I take back most of what I said. They're fucking lovable.
I just wish they weren't both stupid. Does it ever get any better in the source material? No shitty drama on the horizon?
>Does it ever get any better in the source material?
It does, slowly.
>No shitty drama on the horizon?
There is a bit of drama sometimes, but it never gets to heavy. It's a 4koma after all.
Yuu has recently decided that she wants a relationship for real (she was unsure until recently), and made it clear to Haruka the ball is on her court. I don't know how long it will take for Haruka to come to terms with her own feelings though. I think the story will focus on the other character for a while before coming back to Haruka.
I'm sure they get together for real at some point. It probably will happen at the very end though.
I'm interested to see what she can do in a format in a magazine with more conventional(or rather, narrative-focused) pacing. Also she's really good at making mundane interactions sexy without being trashy so I hope it's lewd.
Are they going to release bluray of Sakura Trick later? I only see preorder for dvd.
Fucking Sentai, I want to watch my lesbians kiss in HD.
There's a new chapter
>Kaede noticing Yuu and Haruka being closer than ever
I love this. They're so cute. Mitsuki needs to get forcibly loved by Rina so she chills out about Haruka.
Just when I was starting to give up hope, it appears!
By the way, has anyone ever managed to find the actual raws after all this time? I've looked numerous times and I just can't track them down.
Is falling for Haruka some kind of prerequisite to being student council president?
B-but won't Kaede be the next President after Sumi Sumi?
One-sama was serious about yuri love, thats why she got rejected. Don't you know they will newer show an actual yuri conffesion/couple in anime without making it to look like a joke or comedy element?
If that's your choice of best kiss ever, i don't what else to say. It's mediocre.
So, new Tachi manga this month in Kirara Forward is called Soukaku Kankei.
>Airi and Himari are twins
>They are always together, though recently Himari has been getting along really well with someone other than Airi...
And reading spoilers on twitter, yes it's another girl.
Ugh, my apologies. I made a mistake with the name of the series by mixing up the kun and onyomi. The correct name is Futakaku Kankei, which makes sense since the manga is about "futa-go" (twins).
As compensation, here is an extended synopsis:
Air and Himari are twin sisters that had always sported identical hairstyle, clothing and accessories. But not long after entering high school, Himari changed her hairstyle, and started doing a part-time job without consulting Airi. Feeling down, one day Airi sees Himari determined to head for work even when her feet was hurting, explaining that "There is a promise between me and senpai I have to fulfill". Seeing Himari like this, Airi comes up with a proposition...
>Would this mean Sakura Trick ended or is gonna end soon?
Nah, it's not weird for mangokas to have multiple projects, especially in the same family of magazines. It's not like she's drawing an ultra detailed action series or something.
I know, Rina is too-fucking-cute tier. I'm just now reading the new chapter, Mitsuki needs to chill down, Haruka loves Yuu, it ain't gonna change. And hell, I even like Mitsuki. I NEED MITSUKI RINA IN MY LIFE.
I thought it was more she's using her as training wheels for losing Mitsuki and Rina. Even so, I can definitely see her falling for Haruka, even though I hope it doesn't happen personally.
Haruka might be a bit emotionally underdeveloped but what do you have against Yuu?
Oh right, it's been a long time since I watched the show and I misremembered Yuu being as stupid as Haruka. But she does act pretty dumb, she just obeys her asshole sister and doesn't try to defend herself or Haruka.
They're both pretty dumb, but yeah, Yuu isn't as stupid as Haruka.
>she just obeys her asshole sister and doesn't try to defend herself or Haruka.
It's not Yuu's fault, you have to obey your student council president nee-san. Mitsuki is a monster who abuses her position
It's literally Yuu's fault. Mitsuki was being an abusive cunt, Yuu should have told her that she had no right to try to manipulate her life in such a way. Since Yuu didn't try at all to defend her girlfriend, that really called into question how much Yuu even cares about Haruka.
>that really called into question how much Yuu even cares about Haruka.
Only if you're retarded. Haruka herself knows Yuu doesn't want to disobey her sister because she cares a great deal about her. And that's why I dislike Mitsuki. Even though Yuu cares so much about her, she still was willing to try steal Haruka from her. That's just being a shit older sister.
>Yuu should have told her that she had no right to try to manipulate her life in such a way
Isn't that exactly what she does in the first half of episode 12? They're both naive, but Yuu ended up being the one defending their relationship when it came under fire.
Well, there seems to be something about climax, is ST ending? I can see a guy being introduced as a last boss. Maybe Yuu will crush on him prompting Haruka to finally get her act together?
>Maybe Yuu will crush on him
She's already happily in a relationship, I could see it being the other way round, but no way Yuu is gonna reciprocate. Well, he's not in uniform so maybe a teacher?
Despite having a backlog of last season's anime to finish and this season's to catch up on, this thread has convinced me to start re-watching 桜Trick again.
Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never do
Needs more kissing webms, I swear to god /u/ better get on this.
I thought God was against gays? And don't give me this crap about multiple gods. The Christian God is the only God. Ya'll need church
Firstly, "God's work" is a figurative expression. The English language is very much influenced by religion.
Secondly, God being against gays is only one way to interpret the bible. All Christians interpret the bible to fit the modern age, or they'd be living by some crazy, violent rules. How they intrepret it is a personal choice. Therefore lots of Christians do believe that it's ok to be gay.
But if that happened there wouldn't be any nuns, and who'd punish the schoolgirls then?
I have no idea, but I'll bet money the post you replied to is Lazy Lily patting themselves on the back and shitstirring at the same time.
The answer to your question is inevitably: drama llamas.
I know this is kinda old but since when where there Sakura Trick figures?
Or maybe they were custom made for tachi because they weren't getting any.
Seems like those came out kinda recently:
Don't know where to get them as I don't see any online stores that carry them. They might've been an exclusive somewhere.
I just finished this in two sessions. Really lovely and my first explicit yuri show.
I kinda wonder where do I go from here? I will certainly take a look at the manga but what are some similar light-hearted stories?
This whole innocence theme appealed to me and I don't even know if there can be anything like that again.
Wife & Wife, the yuri works of Fujieda Miyabi, maybe play Sono Hanabira. The director of the SonoHana OVA also worked on Sakura Trick.
You've got stuff like Kanamemo which is way more wacky and manic and raunchy, and Candy Boy which is much more subdued, but really, even outside of the yurispace there's really not a lot of anime like Sakura Trick where the couple is established at the outset, the romantic threshold is crossed in the opening minutes, and the show is just about the two romantic leads spending time with each other and figuring out stuff. It's much more conducive to just parade a bunch of waifus to express shallow interest in the generic male lead. But enough about coddling and herbivore male culture.
>This whole innocence theme appealed to me and I don't even know if there can be anything like that again.
If Sakura Trick is your threshold for innocence, then holy shit.
Like I mentioned earlier, Fujieda Miyabi keeps it mostly wholesome and there's often a naive ingenue girl, but if you like the idea of sexual awakening then Morishima Akiko's pretty prolific and briskly paced in the stuff of hers that stars teen girls.
Did I watch the wrong Kanamemo?
>watch those 30 shows to get into Yuri
doesn't help me. (And I didn't start a thread for this)
This guy does help though. That's an answer I can build on. Thank you good sir.
It's not my threshold for innocence it's just what I liked about the show. And as you said
>couple established at the outset etc.
Just really hit a spot.
After rewatching, I realized Haruka and Yuu traded soft toys (the pink plushy). Also, Haruka didn't notice Yuu already had a Harry-chan plush in episode 4.
Yes, because an anonymous on an image board told me to do so.
I'm completely out of the loop of the scanlation circles and any drama therein, but I for one am thankful to whoever scanlates for free for a bunch of ungrateful fucks like us. If you have a beef with Lazy Lily or whoever else it's your problem, man, and your post was just an assumption anyway.
Is there any NSFW doujinshi of Kotone x Shizuku? I've been looking and i found nothing, please, if anyone could help me, feel free to do so.
Sadly, there isn't any, just a few fanart
There are only 3 doujins of ST that i know of, a Haruka x Mitsuki one, a Haruka x Yuu one and a het rape one
Thanks for telling me, anon. Can you please post some more of those two, if you have any more fanart, so I can add more to my collection. Also, thank you for that pic. it's really good.
Well, the only other porn i have of them is this picture
There is also this CG set, primarily Haruka x Yuu but there is some Shizuku x Kotone as well
And this is all i have
Her name is Morishima Sora. We don't know much about her since she was only recently introduced.
She's a senpai at where Mitsuki works part-time (prep school)
Her shtick so far is that she's carefree and blunt since she sucks at reading the mood.
The official twitter account for the series announced some event for later this month with the presence of Kotone and Shizuku's VAs in a "talk show" or whatever.
Is it too much to hope for a season 2 announcement?
>actual yuri + comedy (ST, SK)
>actual yuri + 2deep4u (YKA)
>everything up to just heavy subtext SoL even with "yuri" its title (YY)
>sells and gets constantly shitposted with
Yuri age when?
New chapter out
Lots of Kaede-service in this one, including some parts that aren't just setups for a joke. I also loved that Yuzu is fully aware that Haruka is shipping them, rather than before where she just seemed to think she was being weird.
Besides the upcoming december issue, Tachi will also be doing the cover for the 2016 Jan Issue, illustration not yet released.
I don't normally pay attention to anime twitter accounts, so I have to ask. Is this normal?
Only got a shitty google translation but
"I, in my voice, I thought strongly to her loved ones and I want to tell her of the important thoughts
It was the impression of cherry Trick6 Volume"
Maybe I'm getting my hopes too high but it really sounds like a hint there
