About Girl Friends Complete Collection Manga Omnibus 1

Girl Friends Complete Collection 1 features story and art by Milk Morinaga.

When it comes to grades, bookish high school student Mariko Kumakura is at the top of her class; socially, however, she is shy and lonely, typically eating lunch by herself. Enter the charismatic and beautiful Akko Oohashi, whose goal is to befriend Mariko and burst her out of her introverted shell.

In the process of transforming Plain Jane Mariko into one of the cutest, most popular girls in school, deep feelings begin to emerge that suggest something deeper than friendship. Will these feelings destroy the budding relationship between Mariko and Akko, or will it turn into something else?

A fantastic introduction to the yuri romance genre!

by -

Please note that this review covers Girl Friends Manga Complete Collection 1 AND 2, as I really think they need to go together to make a review worthwhile.

Girl Friends was my first exposure to the yuri romance genre of manga. I had previously read some Yaoi (primarily Gravitation) and generally like romance stories, but hadn’t had a recommendation made to me for Yuri. I stumbled across some scanned pages of the manga online, and it only took a few pages to get hooked and realize I needed to order the full manga!

It’s a solid story, full of character growth, slow relationship building (which I prefer) and fantastic art. It progresses at a comfortable pace, and generally speaking, avoids any overly-obvious ‘twists’ designed to create unnecessary drama. I highly recommend it!

Please note that the first edition of Girl Friends Collection 2 arrived with a major misprint (upside down, backwards pages) but the subsequent exchange copy had no issues.

Very good Yuri manga, possibly the best I've ever read!

by -

I finally finished this book in 4 days; the first 10 chapters really helps establish a strong connection to the two characters: mariko and akiko; after chapter 10: the story starts heating up and by the end of the book, the air is steamier than a sauna!

furthermore: the story can at times, especially the first 10 chapters, feel like it's slow paced or too slow for most readers to enjoy; I certainly felt that way but after I thought about it and considered the events that led up to such emotional encounters. It was simply BREATHTAKING how the story unfolds!

A classic yuri series every yuri fan should read

by -

As a huge yuri fan, Girlfriends was such a cute and sweet series that I enjoyed reading from beginning to end. It follows main characters Mari and Akko who become best friends but eventually Mari begins to grow feelings for Akko. It's a story that explores the difference between what is friendship and what is considered a romantic relationship. It's a very good series and if your new to yuri, definetly give this a try. This is Milk Morinagas most popular work and it is instantly a classic series that every yuri fan should experience.
