The biggest problem with collections of one-shots that ran in Comic Yuri Hime, is that when collected together, it’s easier to see any structural flaws in the creator’s vision. In the case of Akaneiro Confiture (茜色コンフィチュール) by Kurokiri Misao, the major flaw is that she likes not-particularly happy stories with not-particularly sane or grounded people.
The story that is most memorable has become representative of this book in my mind. Unfortunately titled “In the Closet,” it is not a story about sexual identity, but about obsession and narcissism. It’s also a creepy lesbian doll story. So if that’s the kind of thing you like, you’ll like this book.
