Last week I read Voiceful by Nawoko (Seven Seas) and wanted to recommend it. The manga-ka's note says, "It's a yuri magazine [that the story was originally published in] but it's pretty far from yuri, so I have to apologize for that. I kept thinking about relationships that can only "take root between girls" while I was drawing."

She doesn't have to apologize! We need more stories about relationships that can only take root between girls. Let's put it this way, the stories are about love between young women, and they can be interpreted on different levels (as love or--LOVE). The title story is about an agorophobic girl who meets her favorite singer on the Internet.

Sometimes this manga is listed as vol. 1 but the main story is a self-contained in four chapters plus a bonus story. Of course the door's left open for a possible sequel someday but that's much what happens with any story in any medium. Then there are two other little unrelated stand-alone stories, plus a "Special Preview" (excerpt) of First Love Sisters, another yuri schoolgirl manga from Seven Seas.

Too bad Seven Seas manga are so hard to find on bookstore shelves! However, as Voiceful is rated 16-up, at least it should be easy to find on eBay!
