[Manga] Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love

[Posted @ 4:02 PM]
As promised ... summary of 'Maple Love' by Otsu Hiyori in Yuri Hime 8, hope you enjoyed it as much as I do =).

Disclaimer:

I do not scan, so I don't claim credit for it, so please do not ask me where I got my scans. PLEASE.

Click on the scans and a new window will open and bring you to the larger and clearer version.

Please do not hotlink on forums, just paste my blog url and direct them to the Manga Page section, thanks.

Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 1. Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 2.

Satonaka Kaede, a Second Year History Student is unwittingly in the middle of a love confession. The guy had asked the girl to be his girlfriend but the girl had rejected. Kaede on the other hand was in a dilemma as she couldn't afford to disturb the couple and wondering when the couple is going to leave. Suddenly, her handphone rang, alerting the couple to look towards her direction among the bushes in silence lol.

Kaede wished she was a ninja at this time, in the end, she got up and apologized for disturbing. The guy merely blushed, saying it's okay and left. As for the girl, she stayed on and smiled at Kaede. That time, Kaede thought to herself that the girl's really cute.

Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 3. Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 4.

The girl then introduced herself as Miyaji Erika and thanked Kaede-chan [!?] for 'helping' her as she bluntly said that the guy's rather troublesome. Kaede replied that the guy's pretty good looking in her opinion. Erika considered the statement for a while that it seemed true but ... revealed with a smile on her face that however she likes girls lol. Erika then asked Kaede if she found that fact disgusting?

With a straight expression, Kaede answered that she doesn't find it disgusting ... Erika smiled and asked if Kaede wants to try? With that, Erika tilted Kaede's chin towards her and kissed her. The next thing Erika knew was that Kaede had slapped her lol. Holding her bruised cheek, Erika stated that it's the first time she had been slapped lol. Kaede replied that that's good and 'advised' Erika not to do that again even though it's just an experiment.

Erika took a photo of Kaede's retreating back with her digital camera with a smile on her face, probably intrigued by Kaede's actions. Meanwhile, Kaede's friend was looking for her and asked her where has she been to since she didn't even answer her phone call. Kaede nonchalantly replied that she had been kissed by a beautiful girl lol. Kaede's friend was like 'Huh? What are you talking about? Are you alright?' lol.

Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 5. Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 6.

Erika's question of whether if Kaede felt disgusted made Kaede feel that Erika's stereotyping her. Despite the fact that Erika's really cute, Kaede couldn't help but feel that Erika must had encountered some bad experience for her to say that. The next day, Erika found that Kaede was lazying around at the usual place and told her that she'll get sun burn if she slept directly under the sun.Erika made herself comfortable beside Kaede before confessing to Kaede that it seemed that she has fallen in love with her LOL and even asked her to go out with her with a sweet smile on her face. Kaede was thinking to herself that things had escalated beyond her control.

Kaede bluntly told Erika that she don't like her so she can't go out with her. Erika laughed and commented that Kaede's really interesting.With that, Erika asked if they could be friends then? Kaede replied that that could be possible ... Erika then whipped out her digital camera and took a snapshot to commemorate them being friends. Erika laughed at Kaede who was taken by surprised on the photo as not being photogenic enough lol. Kaede replied that Erika's really rude to say that ... Erika answered that it's a good thing as it means that the person's better looking in person than on photograph.

Leaning closer to Erika, Kaede found out that it's rather true as Erika's not really photogenic either lol. Meanwhile, Erika's heart was racing as their hands were touching yet Kaede's expressionless ... 'Don't tell me she's a natural-born idiot!?', Erika thought to herself lol. When Kaede asked why Erika's bringing her camera everywhere she goes, Erika explained that she loves to snap happy moments of her days, things she likes and stuff she finds cute, it's like keeping a diary. Erika then asked why Kaede's not having lunch even though it's lunch break, Kaede replied that she's living alone and has no money lol. Erika then offered to treat Kaede which she instantly agreed lol.

Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 7. Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 8.

For the next few days, Erika met Kaede and her friend who were revising their work and they chatted for a while before Erika left. Kaede's friend was surprised that Kaede knew Erika and told her that Erika had a reputation for stealing her friends' boyfriends lol. Her friend then added that it doesn't really matter to Kaede since currently she don't have a boyfriend lol. Kaede somehow came to a conclusion that Erika's a good person because she had treated her to a meal lol. Kaede then asked Erika for an explanation who replied that she don't know why but when she made friends, her friends' boyfriends would fall in love with her somehow and blamed herself for being too cute lol. Erika then revealed that sometimes she would hook up with the boyfriend to get the girl she likes to break up with the guy lol.

Erika then smiled, told Kaede not to worry because now she had placed her heart and soul on persuing Kaede. Kaede replied but didn't they agree to only be friends? Erika smiled and said yes they are, as it's only her who's liking Kaede. Somehow, Kaede doubt the meaning of friends from the 'couple'-like vibes she's getting from Erika. From watching movies together, having a lunchbox made by Erika together and a good morning wake-up message ending with a 'I love you' from Erika lol. Kaede questioned her friend on what's the difference between friends and lovers lol. Her friend told her probably friends don't have sex with each other while lovers do? [LoL] Kaede responsed that there's such a thing call Sexfriends, they're friends yet they had sex with each other? [Double LoL]

In the end, her friend suggested that they check the dictionary for the meaning, Lovers mean two persons in love, as long as they like each other, there's a possibility that they're lovers. Kaede was reminded of the time she told Erika that she don't like her so she can't go out with her. Kaede wondered how she feel now ... even though she wasn't sure. Her friend then asked if Kaede wants to go to a mixer and there's free meal lol. Kaede thinking of meal, agreed instantly again. Her friend then asked her to invite Erika over too as it seemed like there's a guy in the mixer who likes her. Erika agreed to go, much to Kaede's surprise because ... isn't Erika supposed to be in love with her? Kaede felt like it's her own wishful thinking. Suddenly, it started raining, luckily Erika brought her umbrella and Erika took a snapshot of them under the Love Umbrella lol.

Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 9. Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 10.

At the mixer, Kaede's friend was pissed over the fact that Erika had hogged the guys and even the guy she had set her sights on to herself lol. As for Kaede, it doesn't matter as she's happily chompping on the good food lol. Kaede then noticed Erika didn't bring her digital camera ... does it mean that the day wasn't a worthy happy moment? Noting Erika's blushed expression when in the company of the guys, it looked like she became another person ... Kaede stopped and was puzzled why Erika's face was flushed even though she's drinking Oolong Tea.

Climbing on the table and leaning against Erika's forehead, Kaede told Erika to go home, grabbing her hand and left leaving the others and her friend stunned at what happened lol.While walking home, Kaede's still holding on to Erika's hand, Erika asked if Kaede's angry with her to which Kaede confirmed. Kaede couldn't help but wonder why Erika would attend the mixer even though she's having a high fever. Erika replied that even though she's not going, Kaede would still be going and she hated if Kaede would be taken away by another ...

Erika apologized saying that friends shouldn't feel that way isn't it? ... Kaede thought to herself how silly Erika was to think that way as she herself wasn't even the popular type, besides, Erika's so cute and better in many ways than her ... why did she fell in love with her? ... Kaede couldn't help but feel like doing anything for Erika. Kaede told Erika to stick her head outta the bed sheet she's hiding from as she's not angry anymore. Kaede offered to do or obtain anything for Erika ... in her mind she's thinking Erika looked like a rabbit lol.

Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 11 and 12.

Erika replied she wants Kaede and then laughed it off, making an excuse that her fever was making her say weird things. Kaede said okay while Erika's listing out the items she need to lower down her fever before realizing Kaede's response. Kaede leaned towards Erika, saying she will give herself to her and kissed her. With tears in her eyes, Erika mumbled that her flu might be contagious. Kaede answered that it's okay, as long as Erika's willing to take care of her.

Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 13. Yuri Hime 8 - Maple Love 14.

Kaede suggested that they take a picture to commemorate their love. As for later, Kaede's still wondering what's the difference ... Kaede asked Erika if they want to hold hands, which Erika replied she want! Erika wondered if anyone would feel weird at the sight ... Kaede was thinking it's a wonder such a comment would come from a person who kissed her at first sight ... lol. Noticing that Kaede's staring at her, Erika asked her what's up, Kaede merely replied that it's just that Erika's too cute. While walking, the girls were thinking entirely different things, Kaede's still musing that the difference must be that ... while Erika's wondering if she should take a photo.

In the end with an innocent curiosity, Kaede asked if Erika knew how girls have sex. Erika blushed furiously and was stunned beyond words lol. - END of Maple Love -

In my opinion, it's a rather refreshing story and I really like Otsu Hiyori's art style, it's clean and easy to look and reminds me a little of Konno Kita's art style.

Btw, thanks to Sarah who emailed me the file of the Akaiito doujinshi and Sohma for posting the link of the file as well on the blogger comment.

Random Thoughts 1

[Posted @ 10:34 PM]
I've been thinking alot lately, not that I haven't been thinking ... uh I would be brain dead lol. Just that, recently with the rather 'major' decision to study overseas has finally taken a toll in my life literally lol and I've noone to blame but myself for everything.

I'm Invincible!!!!


I never really thought seriously and hard when I made the decision to study abroad. I just want to study and happened to feel like not to be in Singapore lol. I think I'm just way too ambitious, couldn't I just be happy, staying in little, safe Singapore where all my friends and families are? What made me do this? I really forgot lol. Ahhh, I don't wanna think back, why did I even made this notion.

After 'working' with my dad for around a year and getting my driving license at the same time, I remembered my uncle had urged me to study while I and my parents could afford to. Which I can totally understand because the family members on my mother's side never really had a chance to study so I believed that if possible they would try their very best to get their kids the best education there is. I mean that's what my mother thinks. She wants to see me graduate with a degree, you know wearing that 'Square' hat lol.

Since I didn't want to study in SIM [Where most of my friends went] and in Singapore, I thought, why not consider studying abroad? So I went to IDP's Open Day, took advantage of their application fees waived 'promotion' and applied for two Universities. At first I wanted to apply for University of Melbourne but it seemed like they only consider people with the GPA score of 3.0 and above so I went to second choice, University of Queensland lol. For the heck of it, I also applied to University of Western Australia in Arts [Communication] heh.

Anyways, I've already made the semester payment in advance months ago but I think I lack the 'feeling' you know, I just don't know why, that time I was thinking, hm I have like 4 months more, there's still time lol. It's not until now I started thinking, OMG, I have like 30 days more to go before I leave Singapore ... and I'll not get the chance to see my family in person for like months?

My dad had asked me if I regretting 'wasting' my around two years while working with him, I thought to myself, no, even though I didn't learn much about plants and stuff, at least I learnt alot about my dad. From young, he's the dad who goes to work at 6 AM in the morning and comes home 7 PM at night, bath and goes to sleep by 9 PM lol. So I never really really knew him ... so I never really regretting anything and it's not a waste at all.

Anyways, I know I'm slow and all with applying, didn't managed to get a place in the campus dorm so I decided to get an out-campus dorm. Consoled myself with 'Hey, no worries, wel well, now exercising would be free cos I'm going to cycle to and fro school every weekdays!' lol. Aaanyways, I still got alots in my mind and I figured out that I better have 'To Do Checklist' here to get me going.

'To Do Checklist' For January;

1. Dorm Amenities and Caution fees to send back by 18th Jan. [Do on 14th, Use Speedpost 2-3 days service]
2. Remit money to ANZ Account when the AUS currency is low lol by end of the month. [Wait till it falls to 1.25 or something lol]
3. Book Airport Accommodation by end of this month [Needs like a few days in advance]
4. Buy a new lappy by end of the month cos old lappy's in wonderland =(. [Eyeing for Lenovo ThinkPad T61 but why is it Windows Vista!!!??]
5. Preparation of required stuff to bring over. [Clothes, cutlery and stuff]

7. Convince/beg bros to buy manga for me while I'm gone. [GRRR!]
8. Go for IDP Pre-Departure Seminar 2008 on 2nd Feb cos I missed the UQ one O_o|||

Ah, that's a load off my chest, feels pretty good, everything listed out and nice. I think I can do it now! I can do it, I can do anything ... uh except doing the split that is.

By the way, judging by the votes in the 'Vote For Your New Doujinshi Translation Project!' poll, Morinaga Miruku's Koi no Susume - Rhythm And Police Doujinshi is winning by a lot and I've already started on the pages a few days ago lol. I've done 10 and got 10 pages more to go ... hahaha. I'm still waiting for anonymous's link of Chronolog & Fururi - Tsuki ni Mukau Chou - Akaiito Doujinshi ... oh well, I'll end the poll soon.

I'm thinking of summarizing some other stories from Yuri Hime since I'm only summarizing Hatsu Koi Shimai for the time being and waiting for Chapter 12. I'll start with Yuri Hime #8's Maple Love by Otsu Hiyori then =).

Hatsu Koi Shimai 1. Hatsu Koi Shimai 2.

Recapturing from the previous Chapter, Chika had asked to take a look at the sisters' baby albums but Haruna had refused, giving an excuse that she had misplaced the albums and would show her next time. Later that night, Haruna told Akiho about what happened and Akiho hurriedly asked if Haruna showed Chika. Haruna replied no and Akiho sighed in relief, commenting that it's rare that Haruna could actually tell a lie lol. Akiho suggested that they rearranged the photos so that Chika wouldn't be able to see hers, Haruna found it unsettling, saying Akiho's a cute sister and the way Akiho's acting is as if ...

Akiho burst out crying Haruna not to continue her words ... as she doesn't want to hear it. Looking at Akiho's rather panicky face, Haruna apologized and hugged her. The next day, Haruna bought her baby photo albums for Chika and Haruna was quite relieved that Chika looked happy regardless of what happened yesterday. Haruna then asked to look at Chika's baby photos in return and everything went well after that. Elsewhere, Akiho was thinking of Haruna, whether if could 'handle' the situation lol.

Hatsu Koi Shimai 3. Hatsu Koi Shimai 4.

As Akiho was walking, she noticed the fangirls fawning over Touko-sensei in front of her and immediately had this irritated expression on her face lol. Touko-sensei noticed Akiho and winked at her but Akiho just hmph-ed and walked off ignoring Touko. Touko just smiled and later was called to the office on emergency reasons. Meanwhile, Chiori was alone outside, staring at a book which Akiho had borrowed earlier [The borrowing card] when suddenly the new character from Chapter 10 yelled hello to her.

Chiori remembered the girl as that person who entered the school boundaries without permission and threatened to call the teacher. The girl merely smiled, saying that she's happy that Chiori remembered her and had came to see her. Chiori started to see the resemblance in the girl to Chika, 'Natural Born Idiot' lol. The girl, saw the name on the borrowing card and pronounced Chiori's name as 'Chocolate Cheese' or something, earning an outrage from Chiori who corrected her. The girl began to tease Chiori whose name probably always got mispronounced by people.

Hatsu Koi Shimai 5. Hatsu Koi Shimai 6.

Chiori was speechless since she felt she had nothing in common to talk to the girl. However, the girl said that she's happy because despite all, Chiori-chan~ still replied to her every questions. Chiori was like 'Chiori-chan!?' and gave up, walking away to tell the teacher. The girl yelled her name's Sagara Rie and left, leaving Chiori with last thoughts of the girl as weird. Meanwhile, Touko-sensei was informed by the other teachers that the teacher she was relieving had given birth and would probably return soon. This means ... Touko-sensei would have to leave the school!?

Even though it's the last day of school before the summer vacation starts, Haruna noticed that Chika doesn't seem happy. Haruna told Chika if Chika was really looking forward, everything would be revealed on her face lol. Chika replied that it's just that she felt all weird because ever since entering the school, she could always see Haruna everyday but now with the vacation ... she assumed that she wouldn't be able to see Haruna anymore. Chika added that it's like she felt so lonely and out of place ... Haruna can't help but move nearer to Chika telling how honest she is as Chika had said what Haruna had felt deep inside so easily.

Hatsu Koi Shimai 7. Hatsu Koi Shimai 8.

Haruna gently caressed and nuzzled Chika's cheek, whispering that that [honest] side of Chika is so cute [Awww~]. Haruna suggested several outtings they could do together in school, so that way they could see each other again! Even though Chika's happy with the suggestions, why are they all related to school, she complained lol. Haruna chuckled and continued that they should go outside to have fun too which Chika totally agreed lol XD.

Meanwhile, Akiho's at the library remising at the book she borrowed before as Touko-sensei walked in. When Touko told Akiho that she's here to see her, Akiho shrugged those words away as flattery. Touko insisted that it's true, moving closer to Akiho, Touko added that in front of Akiho she always revealed her true self, as she want Akiho to know more about her that noone else knows ...

Hatsu Koi Shimai 9. Hatsu Koi Shimai 10.

Akiho just kept quiet, Touko smiled and changed the subject asking what she could do for Akiho like nothing had happened lol. As Touko-sensei helped Akiho arranged the books, Akiho was wondering that Touko-sensei doesn't seem to be herself .... The girls then found a corner of the library filled with kids picture books, Akiho pointed out that Haruna used to read one of the picture books to her when she was younger. Touko then noticed Akiho had called Haruna, 'Onee-chan' instead of the more formal 'Onee-sama' in her statement. Akiho was surprised that Touko's quite observant, which Touko replied that it's because it's related to Akiho.

Akiho found out Touko seemed to be always covering up for other people, to which Touko just shrugged in response. Akiho then confessed to Touko that, the reason she and Haruna doesn't look alike was that they aren't real sisters. Akiho added that her parents divorced when she was young and following her mum, she met Haruna for the first time. Akiho had always despised the curly hair she inherited from her mum but Haruna had praised her hair and said she was cute. So from then, Haruna became her 'Onee-chan', the smart and kind sister she admired.

That's not all, Akiho continued that Haruna was sensitive to step-mother's [Akiho's mum I presume?] impression of her so she tried her best to the perfect student and even though Haruna's suffering, she will hide and cry in her room secretly. That's why Akiho wanted Haruna to gain happiness, as long as Haruna's smiling, she'll be satisfied. Touko asked if Akiho still likes Haruna ... ?

Hatsu Koi Shimai 11. Hatsu Koi Shimai 12.

Akiho smiled and replied that she still liked Haruna but ... it's slowly turning into another type of like. Touko questioned to tell what had made Akiho changed her mind if she don't mind sharing it with a unreliable person like her lol. Akiho blushed hard and said that in her heart, Touko-sensei's 'status' had changed too, so ... Touko reached up and caressed Akiho's cheek. Akiho was surprised at the action unlike Touko merely smiled and teasing asked why Akiho's not rejecting her unlike before and that she would be brazen if Akiho didn't stop her, she wouldn't be able to stop ...

With that, Touko leaned towards Akiho, whispering her name. Despite Akiho's rather feeble protests at first, Akiho cried no later and pushed Touko away. With Touko expressionless, Akiho muttered that Touko's really cruel and left tears in her eyes.

Hatsu Koi Shimai 13. Hatsu Koi Shimai 14.

On the other hand, Kirika's practicing archery but noticed Miyu hiding in the corner lol, Miyu thought she could secretly see Kirika practice. When Kirika asked if Miyu's theater club had ended, she smiled and nodded. However, Kirika knew from Miyu's expression that she's lying and Miyu confessed that she brought snacks for Kirika and told her to take a break.

Kirika bluntly asked what happened and told Miyu to go back since she sneaked out halfway during club time. Miyu just kept quiet. Kirika gently urged to tell her what happened, but Miyu just replied nothing and left hurriedly. To Kirika's horror, Miyu slipped and fell, but was cushioned by Kirika in a nick of time. However, it seemed like Kirika was hurt! ... - END of Chapter 11 -

Guess the truth's out, Akiho and Haruna are not real sisters and it seemed like Akiho's 'love' for Haruna's slowly turning more 'sisterly' XD lol. In the meantime, Akiho's feelings for Touko seemed to run deeper, will they be together?

As for Chiori, even though she likes Akiho but the love's unrequited, will she like the genki new character, Rie instead? My second favourite couple, Kirika and Miyu! What is Miyu hiding from Kirika? Look forward to Chapter 12 ... um soon I reckon?
