I finished watching Tentai Senshi Sunred today and I can’t really recommend this anime enough. It’s a parody of super sentai but you don’t need to know anything about that kind of thing to enjoy it.

You just… end up loving these dumbass characters and damn the final episodes of each season are like, heart-wrenching. It’s two 26 episode seasons but they’re only 13 minutes each, so it’s really not long. The manga’s still going but no one’s really translated it. …Sad. So sad.

Yuri manga by women about women (who aren't in high school)

Sadly a lot of them are one shots, but there’s a few longer ones. A lot of yuri manga is tragically too short and I’m always left wanting more. D: 

After some struggles with myself, I ended up putting stories about college aged women so long as it’s not “innocent school life” heavy. 

Yamaji Ebine

  • Love my Life (this one has a movie. A uni student coming out to her father and finding that her parents were both queer as well.)
  • Indigo Blue (A novelist caught between feelings for her boyfriend but also her feelings for another woman.)
  • Free Soul (22 year old aspiring manga artist writing a manga about a black jazz singer. Artist falls for a trumpeter of a jazz band.)
  • Sweet Lovin Baby (A young woman befriends a lesbian couple and falls for them. With three other short stories.)  

Morishima Akiko

  • Conditions for Paradise- An OL in love with a world hopping freelance journalist
  • We’re Aiming for Love Now (Journalist and a cutie in a cosplay store)
  • Happy Picture Diary - (REALLY FUNNY. An social worker and an editor’s daily life together. All chibi but with some really real lesbian life jokes)
  • Off-Time (an aging lesbian short one shot)
  • 20-Year-Old Girl x 30-Year-Old Maiden- (one shot, a 30 year old sensitive about her age with a 20 year old woman in her art class)
  • Princess of the Stars- (short- almost didn’t make it b/c high school flashbacks but it’s college roomies and it’s short and sweet- and challenges that “girls experiment with girls in high school then grow out of it” thing that people in Japan sometimes think)

Other Artists: 

  • Ohana Holoholo: Torino Shino (Saya lives with her bisexual former girlfriend and her son. Nico, an actor living up stairs and a close friend, drops by for a visit almost everyday.  Somewhat like family, and somewhat not, a story about their lives)
  • My Unique Day-Sakamoto Mano (women in an acting troupe together. one shot)
  • Abracadabra- Tanaka Minoru (a magician and a cute girl dealing with confessing to a girl for the first time)
  • Lonely Wolf, Lonely Sheep- Mizutani Fuka (two women with the same name meet. Warnings for self harm)
  • Cirque Arachne: Saida Nika (Two women working in the circus in a trapeze act. Stellar cute.)   
  • Maple Love- Otsu Hiyori (meeting in college; really cute)

Two that I recommend but are set apart from the others because one is written by a man and one is written with the male audience in mind respectively

  • Kusari ha mou iranai- Uso Kurata; two Office ladies
  • Octave- Akiyama Haru (seinen manga; a talent manager and a songwriter)

This is by no means an exhaustive list and I know there’s more (one particularly that I wanted to put on here but couldn’t remember the title of) so feel free to add on your favorite adult queer lady manga to the list!

Hey Katy! I don't know if you've done this before, but it would be so awesome if you could link your favorite creepy pasta stories! Or to a post you might have already done?

No problem! First off are the “true” creepypastas, or stories that have no known author, just like urban legends IRL.

NOTE: I’ll bold all the creepypastas I consider to be the best of the best.

And here are my favorites from the King of Creepypasta, Slimebeast. Seriously, his stories are fantastic; in my opinion (and in many others’), he’s the best creepypasta author out there.

And these are from No Sleep on Reddit. No Sleep is one of the best resources of short horror fiction and I highly recommend looking around!

WOW, this ended up being much longer than I expected it to be. Oh well, hope you enjoy!

Manga Recommendation: Gender-Bender, Crossdressing, Body-Swap(s)

I went to Sephora the other day to exhange some stuff (I returned my Clarisonic ‘cause it sucked for me!) and got these things instead: 

  • NARS Sheer Glow Foundation - I initially got Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation out of habit of buying medium to full coverage products, but since my skin is so good now I returned it and got this instead because it’s sheer to medium. Adjusting to new skin stories is quite difficult! Old habits die hard. 
  • Hourglass Ambient Blush in Ethereal Glow - I love Hourglass products, never been disappointed. Their luminizer powders are phenomenal and I’ve wanted the blushes for months, ever since I previewed them in office @ the magazine! Naturally picked this one up the first chance I got. It’s so beautifully and finely milled. Can’t wait to use it.
  • Margiela’s “Jazz Club” Eau de Parfum - I have panic attacks quite often and the only thing I like to do when this happens is go to Sephora and smell stuff until I calm down. This is the smell that calmed me down fastest so it made sense to buy it. It’s supposedly a “male” fragrance but the GENDER BINARY OF PERFUME IS BULLSHIT SO WHO CARES. It smells like rum, sage, tobacco, pepper and vanilla. Spicy and rude! I like it. 
  • Anastasia Brow Wiz - I always rebuy this when I run out, which is a big deal considering how many other brow products I’ve tried out over the years. It’s just the best! makeuptips- has also raved about this. It’s just a great brow product, and I recommend it very highly. 
  • Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - Really into the glowing skin thing where I look my blood is probably filled with light and money, this product gets you that vibe. I love how well rested it helps me look. Evidently the new spring trend is no makeup just moisturizer (lol) and this is an excellent product to aid in that “runway gone real” effect or what have you. I’m not linking to Sephora for this product but Beauty Encounter ‘cause it’s on sale for like $10 less!

Just stuff I know that works, and that I’d like ‘em. What have you been lemming for lately or hauled? Always curious to know what works for other people.

waking-wanderer said:

What are some good books to start off reading with nonbelievers?

Hey my friend: First of all, I have to say that if your unchurched friend is willing to read anything related to Christ, that’s so very awesome and I applaud you.  Double high-five right through my screen. :)

Some books then!

 

- Blue Like Jazz, by Donald Miller.  The book cover itself says “Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality.”  It was rather popular with pretty much everyone when it came out, and it’s unlike any other Christian book you’ll read.

- Heroes and Monsters, by Josh Riebock.  I must have recommended this book a billion times and I’ve bought at least half a dozen of them for friends.  Simply an honest, raw, gripping story about a struggling Christian.

- Dug Down Deep, by Joshua Harris.  I know how some people feel about Pastor Joshua’s dating books, but this autobiography is both an excellent life-story and also a great intro into Christian doctrines.  He manages to get the perfect balance of both.

- The Reason for God, by Timothy Keller.  Most books on apologetics tend to be yawn-inducing and cringe-worthy, but Pastor Tim presents a well-rounded case for Christianity that touches on philosophical, psychological, and historical reasons all at once.  It answers the question, “Why do we even need God?”, along with several tough ones about Hell and exclusivity.

- Mere Christianity, by C.S. Lewis.  Because it’s C.S. Lewis. And you could always go with The Chronicles of Narnia, or Lewis’s buddy J.R.R. Tolkien and Lord of the Rings.

- You Lost Me, by David Kinnaman.  This is an actual statistical survey about why young Christians are leaving the church, and it asks very important questions about why the modern church is failing to connect.  The author presents both problems and solutions.  It’ll get you to have great intense conversations with your friend.

- Passion and Purity, by Elisabeth Elliot.  If you’re looking for a female author, you can’t go wrong with any of her books.  I know some Christians consider her a bit airy and sugary, but I think she’s a great writer with an incredibly tragic and hopeful testimony.

Enjoy and be blessed!

— J.S.

What are your favorite songs right now?

ghostwires said:

hi im looking for a good non fetishized yuri anime could u give me some recommendations please? like a full length 12-20 episode anime would b nice

I’ll start with the good old staples:
Sasameki Koto (Whispered Words) (13 episodes) is about a tall, athletic high school girl who is in love with her lesbian friend (who only likes small and cute girls) and…
Aoi Hana (12 episodes) is about two childhood friends who reconnect, and the relationships and events in their lives. Both of these are very nice slice-of-life yuri anime. When you’re finished watching them, make sure you read the manga, since they carry on much farther.

Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san (12 episodes) - this little yuri aired last season and is about a dog-like girl and a cat-like girl in high school. It’s a comedy, and while nobody is actually explicitly in a relationship, it is still definitely yuri. Each episode is only 3 minutes long, so you can burn through it fast!

Candy Boy (8 eps and 2 specials) - a surprisingly cute anime about twin sisters (incest warning). I don’t remember it being fanservicey, though it’s been a while since I’ve watched it.

I’m trying to think of other yuri anime without the male gaze, but it’s kinda hard! To compensate, I’ll recommend some non-yuri anime with canon yuri couples:

Mouretsu Pirates (Bodacious Space Pirates) (26 episodes and a movie (eventually)) - This anime is surprising in a lot of ways, but basically, it’s about space pirates and has a predominantly female cast, and is refreshingly fanservice-free. Has a canon yuri couple and pretty strong subtext between the main characters.

Shinsekai Yori (From the New World) (25 episodes) - Very atmospheric speculative sci-fi about an unstable society that has rebuilt itself after humans discover they have psychic powers and the world goes to hell. Canon main character yuri pair, though they are perhaps best described as bisexual. (Warning: Don’t read the manga. It was made after the anime and is disgustingly ecchi/pretty much pornographic.)

Yozakura Quartet (25 episodes + 3 OVAs) - Fantasy/action anime about youkai and humans coexisting in a city. It has a nice balanced cast with many strong women. Canon main character yuri pair, though it’s very understated and just kind of exists without drawing attention (which I think is fantastic since it’s treated just like a het ship in anything else). The first season is fanservice-free and really great, though unfortunately the OVAs and second season have a different director and start to layer the fanservice on pretty thick. Sorry about that.

Okay, I’m sleepy! That’s all you get! I hope it helps a little, though I’m disappointed in myself that I couldn’t come up with more off the top of my head. There’s a lot more yuri anime out there that have varying levels of fanservice, are longer in length, or just have subtext instead of straight-up yuri, so don’t give up!

Hi there! I love this blog, thank you for putting so many lovely Lois and Clark posts on my dash! I'm newly into comics, and for all that I've come to love L&C from TV and movie media, I've barely read any Superman comics. I'd like to, but there's obviously a lot of content! As a trusted L&C source, could you please recommend some of your favorite favorite runs/arcs/issues/etc. to a fellow shipper or point me toward any already-compiled such list? Thanks so much, keep up the awesome blogging! :)

Thanks for the kind words and, as someone who also came to Superman and Lois from live action, I hope you’ll be like me and find that reading their comic book incarnations adds to your love and enjoyment of this amazing couple. I’ll try my best to come up with a list. If it’s missing anything, or if other Clark/Lois fans have their own personal favorites to recommend (here are two good places to start: 1, 2), hopefully they’ll show up in any responses this post may get. My recommendations include those in the links above and the following:

GOLDEN AGE | SILVER AGE | BRONZE AGE

  • Browse my edits/scans/reblogs in my tags for Golden Age, Silver Age, and Bronze Age and you’ll probably find some good ones. Superman Takes a Wife and Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? are pretty neat and important.

POST-CRISIS

  • The Wedding Album
  • Up, Up, and Away
  • Camelot Falls
  • For Tomorrow
  • Last Son of Krypton

NEW 52

  • Superman Unchained
  • Earth 2 (20-26)
  • Batman/Superman (1-4, 12-13)
  • Action Comics (0, 1-2, 4, 9-12, 19, 21, 34, Annual #3)
  • Superman (24)

ORIGIN STORIES

  • Superman: Birthright
  • Superman: Secret Origin

OTHER

  • All-Star Superman
  • Final Crisis (2, 3, 7)
  • Superman: Secret Identity
  • Superman Confidential
  • JLA: Classified (10-11)

DIGITAL

  • Smallville: Season 11 - All of it is good, but the best arcs or “episodes” that include lots of Lois/Clark or are relevant to them are Guardian, Detective, Haunted, Valkyrie, Olympus, Lantern, and Chaos.
  • Adventures of Superman - The whole series of digital “chapters” (with arcs collected as individual issues) is excellent. These are the chapters that are best for Clark/Lois: 5, 7-9, 12, 18, 29, 34, 37, 43-45, 47, 48, 50.

Gosh, I’m probably forgetting some important ones. There’s lots to check out, though, and I hope you’re able to find them and enjoy them. Happy reading!
