Yuri Manga: Otome no Teikoku (オトメの帝国)

November 1st, 2011

Otome no Teikoku (オトメの帝国) is based on the premise that all women are bisexual and, if left alone in an all-female world will naturally, uncontrollably, start playing with each other sexually. It’s drawn with the idea that women look at other women with the same kind of “gaze” as men do. So walking around the school, girls are looking up each other’s skirts, and down their shirts…and noticing, commenting on and having (mostly lascivious) conversations and thoughts about each other’s secondary sexual characteristics.

Since this is not true and the assumption is tiresome in the extreme, this manga pretty much left me feeling utterly vexed at the creator and anyone who might enjoy it.

Folks waiting for a great Yuri manga from creator of MAKA-MAKA, Torajiro Kishi, you’re still waiting.

Once again, thanks to Okazu superhero Dan P. who sponsored today’s review from my Amazon JP Yuri wishlist – I would never get my Loser Fan levels up if it weren’t for you!

    After a whole life of reading comics and manga, I think I’ve learned to spot certain subtle signs that tell you when the artist isn’t even trying. I see them in this manga. The art looks tired and perfunctory; every line seems to say “Well, I’m being paid for this, might as well do it”. Nothing to do with Maka-Maka :(
