Sumi is in love with her best friend, Ushio. Ushio likes girls but has publicly declared her interest is in “cute girls”. Unfortunately for Sumi, she’s not small and cute – she’s tall, athletic, and forthright by nature. In Whispered Words, all the tropes of Yuri gather together in a solid dramedy that provides readers the darkest depths and the highest heights of each trop possible
Whispered Words is the English language release of popular Yuri manga series Sasamekikoto, by Takashi Ikeda, put out by One Peace Books. Volume 1 contains the first three volumes of the Japanese series and will be followed by Volume 2 (JP volumes 4-6, which is now up for pre-order) in Autumn 2014 and Volume 3 (JP Volume 7-9). Here is the link on RightStuf.
We’ll be doing a full review here – and we’ll have a contest giveaway in a bit, but for all you Yuri manga fans who have said many time that if something good got licensed you’d buy it – here’s you big chance to step up. Scanlations may have left you frustrated, but I guarantee that if you get all 3 volumes of Whispered Words, you will not be disappointed. The story is solid. ^_^
Fly Yuri fans and support good Yuri in English! ^_^
