Collection 3 Done! Translation #1 is done!

Collection 3: Yearning for you. (Version2)

That collection was a little small. If I find more, I'll add to it.

And! My first translation! It's called Watashi Dake wo Mitete Ne, from Pia Carrot 3.
Check it out!

So, a few more collections and I'll be in business. Would be nice if I could get the word out and start getting some page views...

Collection 4 is a continuation of Collection 1, called "I Still Love You". More doujins that are as close to having pure "Y" as possible!

-Yuriko wants some tacos.

PS Since this collection was small, more content may be added in the future. It will be noted if this happens, and the compilation will be updated.

Collection 2 Done! Translation #1, 50% Complete!

Download Collection 2, Oh Sister, complete collection (version2).
Link to the online folder.

6 more major collections to go. =D
Then I start uploading all my Japanese Doujins and open submissions.
Collection 3 is called "Yearning for You" and will include English doujins with the 'M' tag. In such stories, it usually goes on with one girl pleasing herself calling out the name of the one she yearns for, is usually caught or musters up her courage to confront her and it's all downhill from there.

My first translation is coming nicely! I fully translated the script, cleaned all the word balloons, and already filled half them in. As soon as I finish it, I will actually be open to submission for ideas for my next translation.


PS Since this collection is small, more content may be added in future posts. If so, a note will be provided and the collection compilation will be updated.

Collection 1 is in the bag! Website started! Happy Valentine's Day!

Complete Collection 1- I Love You (Y) ~100 Megabytes (Mediafire)
Or check out the folder.

Hello all! Well, there isn't anyone here yet at the time. My first translation is coming along, and I plan to release it on 4-chan to get some traffic.
The first collection is up! It is called Collection 1: I Love You. I made it by organizing all my tagged doujins and selecting ones with just the Yuri tag or with one or two other harmless tags attached. Collection 2 will be called "Oh Sister" and will include incest. If you do not want to see any incest, just skip the next collection.

Again if you missed the news, you can download the collection file instead of each file marked 'collection1' individually.

And... what a coincidence to be starting officially on Valentines Day! Remember this day is more than just buying some chocolate for someone you like. Make sure you do something really nice for them... or even with them!

And for me this marks 2 years since well... lets just say not everyone has the happiest of Valentine's Days. I hurt the feelings of someone by saying I liked them and still regret it to this day. That friend of mine just wasn't... either ready... or even into me. In the end I permanently lost a good friendship. Wherever that person is now, I wish them the best of luck and the hope that they have a happier Valentines Day than the one I ruined. And I cannot even begin to say how sorry I am. Gomennasai.

But remember that time heals all wounds. To all you out there who are down on their luck, just remember that good things come to those who wait, and you just may find true love someday. If you don't think something is going to work out for you, don't rush it with a "romantic" proposal just because it's Valentine's Day. That is the best advice I can give.

I always think to myself that I will never find anyone... but I should listen to my own advice right?

That aside, Happy Valentine's Day. And enjoy my website. I'll have more content soon.

What the heck do all these things mean? Also, some things to say. What I endorse and not.

Edited 5/8/09

Newcomers (NOOBS-ehem, excuse me, Newbs) to the internet, particular to the anime doujinshi and image community, may not know what all these things mean. Whether it is a term or commonly untranslated Japanese term, this place is for you!

Part 1: Terms
Anime: Japanese Animation. I really hope you know that much. Also called Japanimation.
Manga: The book form of Anime. Or is Anime the animated version of Manga? Manga is usually read right to left, just like almost all other Japanese reading material.
Doujin/Doujinshi: Parody works of a sort. Copyrights seem to be a little looser in Japan, and Doujinshi writers write their own fanfiction manga of any anime/manga series. It is a misconception to say all Doujinshi are Hentai. Many of the releases on this website are Doujins, but not all are, such as official magazines like Yurihime. For simplicity sake, I call manga-like material I upload doujins because you can't always tell the difference.
Hentai: It's the exact opposite of a basket full of kittens. Hentai is essentially the Japanese drawn version of pornography. People under 18 are recomended to not view Hentai material.
Yuri: A genre in manga, anime, etc, that pertains to mature and likely sexual female/female relationships.
Yuri also means "Lily" in Japanese. In case you were wondering why my blog background was lilies. =D
Yaoi: A genre in manga, anime, etc, that pertains to mature and likely sexual male/male relationships.
Shoujo-Ai: A genre that pertains to female/female relationships. Usually ok for all audiences.
Example: Yurihime is a magazine focusing on Shoujo-ai relationships.
Shounen-Ai: A genre that pertains to male/male relationships. Usually ok for all audiences.
(I don't have an example)
Shoujo: A genre usually focusing on females as main characters, usually in a love/real life setting.
Example: Skip-Beat is a Shoujo.
Shounen: A genre usually focusing on males as main characters, usually involving fantasy or adventure.
Examples: One Piece, Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, and Bleach are all popular Shonen titles. Shounen Jump circulates in the US and Japan.
Mecha: Mecha genre focuses on science fiction and fights involving robots.
Example: Evangelion is a Mecha anime.
Sentai: A genre focusing on heroes in spandex trying to save the world.
Example: Power Rangers is an American form of Sentai.
(more genres to come as I think of them)

Other terms:
Tsundere: Personality type of someone who acts brash and agressive on the outside but can be modest, loving and nice on the inside. Usually for a female character. Wiki definition.
Yandere: A personality type used to describe someone of the opposite nature of Tsundere. They seem kind and loving at first, but can end up being deranged, angry, and psychotic. Wiki definition.

Part 2: Lost on Translation:
san: mister/miss
chan: like san, only for younger people/girls
kun: like san, only for younger people/boys
Oneesan/Oneechan: Older sister.
Oniisan/oniichan: Older brother (oniikun does not exist)
(name)-Ne, (name)-ni: Adding ne (sister) or ni (brother) to a name is sometimes used to adress an older sibling.
Nihongo: Japanese
Eigo: English
Nihon: Japan
Nihonjin: Japanese person
Oi, ne, naa: Hey
Mou!: C'mon already, jeez.
Fufufu: (laughing)
Are!?: (pronounced A-reh) Eh? What?
ossan/occhan: old man
basan/bachan: Old lady
(name)-Sama: A Mr. or Miss with a great amount of respect implied.
Ojousan: Landlady
(more to come as I think of them)

Part 3: My tags:
I cover many subgenres when I tag uploaded works. Here is an explanation of each tag, even ones I do not use.
First, tags I DO use:
(Y) Yuri.
(S) Shoujo-Ai.
(B) Bondage: Tieing up. Torture. Whipping. Chaining. Many scary things happen in Bondage. Sane people may not enjoy it, but maybe sadists will...
Only light amounts of bondage are overlooked on my website. Anything torturous or extreme will be overlooked or thrown into a waste basket at the nearest Taco Bell.
(3, 4) Three/Four: Sometimes a doujin may include a small crowd or party of people together.
(T) Tools: In adult material doujins/images/videos, one may try to enhance their experience with a tool, most often a vibrator.
(D) Dildo: An extreme use of a larger tool. Use your imagination. Or better yet, don't.
(L) Lolicon: From the word "lolita complex" meaning liking little girls. Includes loli, a term for an underage girl. Lolicon hentai can be considered pedophilia material, and can be deemed illegal.
(F) Female Dominance: Not to be confused with rape. One simply has another under their control, and the other is usually at least semi-willing.
(U) Furry: Well. How to describe this. Sometimes characters take on animal-like qualities, most commonly a cat tail and cat ears.
(N) Nekomimi: Not as extreme as Furry. Limited to only ears and a tail, while looking mostly human. Nekomimi pertains mostly to catike people, but I also use this term for another animal-like people.
(R) Rape: Sex without consent. Enough said.
Some lighter degrees of rape may be overlooked on a doujin or two. Please let it be known that even if I have some rape content uploaded onto this website, I in no way endorse or personally approve of it. Women are raped in life, and it is truly a horrible concept to even think about. I would never under any circumstance rape anyone, nor would I ever wish it upon any other person. The fact that rape even exists is one of the many reasons I disdain men in general. Let it also be known I am not a feminist, but I share many of its views. (I could never call myself a true feminist... I mean look, I have a pornography website)
I am done preaching now. I just felt that it had to be said. I could say more, such as yes I know women rape too, but never to the extent men do. Ok, I am done. This can be a whole other topic for a side blog if need be.

Now ones I DON'T use:
Futanari: Dickgirl genre. A woman has a penis whether by magic, some crazy science fiction, or she was born that way. You can imagine what happens next with the other girl. Or not.
Futanari will never be accepted on my website. There are many others that have it, I even link to a few. Go there for it.
Please let it be known I do not discriminate against hermaphrodites or people with similar circumstances. I understand that some people are just born that way, and they can do nothing about it. I just choose not to host this genre.
Scat: Number 2. Dropping the kids off at the pool. You know what it is.
Scat will never be allowed on my website. I find it very disgusting.
Guro: Severed limbs and buckets of blood. Possibly pure torture and pain beyond words.
No, no, no, no, no, and no. Oh wait maybe-no. Never on my website. I may allow maybe a wound or two, say some characters are fighting evil or trip down some stairs... but no otherwise. If there is a small-medium amount of blood for any reason, it will be carefully tagged.
Bestiality: Sexual contact or intercourse with animals.
Bestiality will never be allowed on my website. Its even illegal.
Shotacon: Shota is used to describe content with young boys. Shotacon hentai can be considered pedophilia material, and can be deemed illegal. It comes from the word Sho, meaning few, small, or young. (The word Shonen in Shonen jump means few and years, use to describe a young lad)

Comments are appreciated. I pray I have covered enough and an argument does not escalate. If one does, I will do my best to mediate.

Release Format

Alright, I'll be getting started soon! I've almost got enough material together. For now, let's talk release method.

I will be releasing a single doujin at a time per post with: sample image (usually cover), tags, the taco rating*, and any comments. Oh, and the download link. I guess that's important.

After as close to 100 megabytes of releases later, I'll provide a rar file of the last set of releases. That way you can download multiple doujins at once rather than one at a time. I say 100 meg because that's the Mediafire free limit.

In such, I'll try to keep collections either as closely related or unrelated as possible. That way, you either get lots of stuff you like, or just skip the collection file and get 1 or 2 individual files elsewhere. By related, I mean either tags or series, but it will still be a little haphazard.

Translated releases will be in collections of their own.

I will be using Mediafire and perhaps rapidshare for each file. You will be able to access my Mediafire account at mediafire dot com slash TsundereYuriko. You can download from there too, and you can bet the filenames will be tagged.

Well, the website will be adding its first Yuri soon! I bet you can't wait! I want to kick off the opening with a translation, but I I'll just start uploading if it takes too long.

After about 10 collection releases or so (yeah, I think I DO have over a gig) I will open up submission. I'll also compose a master list of everything I have so you can see if you aren't sending me any duplicates.

I shall also consider uploading image collections if enough people express their wishes for it. In the meantime, I'll be sure to add image search websites (like the boorus and chans) to the link lists as I discover them.

Catch you later! First releases coming soon!
I also need to draw my imaginary "cast". You'll see.

*Yup. Taco ratings. Some people usually use their own pictures to simulate a 1-5 rating, whether its stars, or smiles, hearts, or whatever. Me? It's tacos. It can't be anything but tacos. Do not question me. I guess alternatively I could use hearts or Japanese characters for yuri or love... but... there is nothing wrong with Tacos. Tacos it is. I am being paid 5 cents every time I say Taco. Ok that is a lie but still tacotacotacotacotacotaco.

Edits and Releases

Ok, there will be three types of releases.

First! Spread releases. This is the most common release. This includes me wandering around the internet, digging through straight crap and yaoi, and pulling out and dusting off rare and exotic yuri gems. A lot of places display the Yuri they find... but why look there when you can look here?

Second! TsundereYuriko Translation Releases! I take either a Source Release or Spread Release, translate it, and post it! I don't do translations very often, and I won't be doing too many. But if you know any Japanese, maybe you'll feel inspired to try some translation yourself if I do alot?

Third! Source Releases. If I ever come across anything new in real life that I have never seen on the interwebs... I'll just have to scan it and post it, now won't I? I'll be subscribing to and scanning Yurihime in the future... unless someone already does that. Link please, for reals. Seriously!

Ok, next up is the controversial topic of editing. Ok, ok. Some people may complain that I choose to do this. But when I mean editing, I don't alter any images or dialougue. I just cut out entire pages. Although there is the rare occurance I will erase a panel to "save" a yuri. Some Yuri doujins have some nasty straight/futa pages, usually in the credits sections, or even entire chapters of it! These pages will be mercilessly destroyed with each release.

Yes... it may go against the wishes of the creator (and/or translator) by removing pages and posting what I approve of. (Actually... some of these creators are perverts anyway, so I guess I don't care?) It may even tick off some completionists, or people who like the other genres. Well, if I have the original file, I'll link you to it's original, unedited, non-used-as-a-taco-napkin file online in the blog post and text file I post with the doujin. If I have it.

Really. Seriously. Taco napkin. That's all they're good for. YES I SAID IT, FUTANARI/STRAIGHT PAGES ARE ONLY GOOD AS TACO NAPKINS! Flamers will be doused and puked on. Or used as human napkins. You really don't want to be my human napkin, especially on Taco Night. You may want to take a shower just even thinking about that. Seriously. Ew.

Nice comments and suggestions appreciated. Hm... getting hungry. When's the next Taco Night?

Triple Tagging

Right, taking a break with my dinner to post this. Before any doujins start being uploaded here, I better talk about my tag policy. I "Triple Tag" all my doujins after carefully reading them, inspecting them, eating tacos over them, and finally accepting them if they are up to standard. Tags will be located on the following places:
1 Next to the download link and name when I post a Doujin here.
2 In the name of the file, abbreviated with letters in parenthesis.
3 In a txt document included with each release.

I believe in never tricking my audience and telling them up front what they can expect. I absolutely detest being tricked by the cover expecting yuri and it turns out to be a straight, a rape, or a futanari!

All files will have either the Y or S abbreviation, along with others. It will have J if it is in Japanese, otherwise assume English. So, here is each Tag I will be using and its abbreviation:
Y: Yuri. Love between women. Used to differentiate from Shoujo-ai. The difference? Yuri is much more mature and usually includes sexual encounters. Do not download and read Yuri if you are under 18. You are free to read any Shoujo-Ai I have though.
S: Shoujo-Ai. Love between women. Shoujo-Ai tends to be more romantic than Yuri, with Yuri focusing on a relationships... er... "benefits." For those who want a doujin focusing on love and a relationship, Shoujo-Ai is your best bet. NOTE: Shoujo-Ai and Yuri are different, but it is hard to tell the difference sometimes. So I just tag S to anything safe for under 18.
C: Color. Manga writers sometimes break out the crayons!
X : Mature Shoujo-Ai.
Used for some Shoujo-Ai's I find, as they may include some nudity or strong language. Notes will follow with each release with an X. Some Yuri may also have an X if they have excessive language.
B: Bondage. Tieing up. I am not a fan of bondage or torture, but light amounts of it are tagged with a B. If I deem it too severe, it will not be approved.
F: Female Dominance. One woman has the other completely subjected to her control.
T: Tools. Usually small vibrators.
D: Dildos and strap-ons. Not a fan of this either, but its there. May include other objects.
3: Three. Who says three is a crowd?
4: Four or more. Here is a crowd. Can contain 4 or more people.
M: Masturbation. There's a party somewhere, but no one was invited.
U: Furry/Monstrous. Used for full fur catgirls, monsters, etc. Not to be confused with bestiality.
N: Nekomimi. Not to be confused with Furry. Nekomimi means cat ears, and will be used for people with animal ears and/or animal tails, most likely cat-like.
I: Incest. Usually between mother and daughter, or between sisters.
G: A guy. Yeah, sometimes a guy will be featured as a minor character for some scenes, or a girl keeps talking about one and her jealous friend intervenes. It happens, but G is still Y.
R: Rape. No sane person likes rape, but some doujins have it, even Y's. Violent rape is not approved.
W: Waterworks. (Pee.) Well, some girls get too excited and mess up in some moments... or there's a toilet scene... you've been warned. Excessive amounts are not approved.
E: Edit. Explanation to follow in post and txt file. Sometimes I have to cut out some pages or entire chapters due to non-yuri content. If I have the original file, I will include a link if you are interested. But I say stay away, I edit for a reason.
Z: Special note, unique. Explanation to follow in post and TXT file.
J: Japanese. If you only know English... well, you probably can't read it. You can still look at the pretty pictures.
0: Award. A doujin, image, or other item gets a special award if it matches my legendary request list. You can see my request lists on the left.

TAGS YOU WILL NEVER SEE: Scat, Guro, Futanari, Straight, Yaoi, Shota, Bestiality. You will never see them. Ever. And if I messed up and uploaded a doujin with such a scene, email me or comment the post immediately so I can remove it! Sometimes I'm so tired I can't think or edit straight... reporting accidental unapproved uploads is highly appreciated!

Right, so play with the tags and click on what you want to find... or just download it all. I don't care. Now, back to my tacos. Mmm, tacos.


Edited 5-5-09
Hello and welcome! If you have found my blog, stick a bookmark somewhere, because you will be in for a treat! Yuriko-chan's Yuri Paradise will be a large of collection of... you guessed it, penguin photos. Seriously, Yuri and some Shoujo-Ai.
As you can see I have added many things here since I started. Mostly a lot of doujins. But there is much more to come.
I intend to do several things with this blog.
First, to make a huge database of Yuri! Not to mention be open to submissions from people like you who have new stuff. I intend to have the largest pure Yuri collection on the net!
Second, I plan to do my own translations. Its hard, I only know college level Japanese, and editing raws is difficult too. It will be a difficult project indeed, and I can only do so many as a personal side project. I already have a few doujins translated, but editing dialogue, checking for consistency in translation, cleaning raws and sticking text in... how do all those people do it? I'm so glad an editor volunteered to help me out, which I am very thankful for.
Third! To give you a pure Yuri experience! There aren't many places on the web that have what I call "pure yuri", often hiding their yuri among seas of straight, yaoi and unmentionable material. This site will never feature bestiality, yaoi, straight, scat, high degrees of bondage and violence, shotacon, and never a hint of Futanari. I look long and hard through these websites seizing the most beautiful gems buried in the harshest wastelands.

Right, while I'm at it, I lay out my goals:
1 Provide you with a pure yuri database with no strings attached and no nasty surprises. Everything is tagged to near death, so you will always know what you will be viewing.
2 Have a translated doujin up at least every other month. Hey, I have a life you know. Mostly. I can't translate doujins all day every day. I don't know if I can accept requests, it depends on the rate I recieve them and the rate I can translate.
3 Put up new Yuri as I find it. New Doujins come out every day in Japan, can we catch up?
4 Link to other Yuri sites. And, maybe even be linked back! =D
5 Do it all for FREE!

And finally, things I need from you!
1 As I translate, I might put up individual blogs of each raw doujin. Bilingual commenters are welcome to help me along!
2 Submissions of Doujins I don't have are always welcome! Please please please please don't send me anything I don't approve of. (submissions are not open till I open the website completely, as there is a good chance I have it already. I will say when submissions are open.)
3 Spread the word! Get my name out. Good Yuri is hard to find... unless you come here!
4 Some general tips, please see below.

Guess that's all I should say for now. I just need to get some things straightened out. Hopefully I'll really have this thing going by March or so. Look forward to it!


ps If you have read this far, you must be pretty interested. Maybe you can help! I have so many questions. Whats the best website I can use for sharing doujins? (My current answer: Blogger) What website would be the best to upload my doujins to? (possible answers: Megaupload, rapidshare, my current answer: Mediafire) Can I consider posting lolicon? (Current answer: Blogger and Google have a 0 tolerance toward pedophilia policy, current answer is probably not) Leave a comment or email me at TsundereYuriko at gmail dot com! Comments, advice, help, or even a friendly hello are all appreciated!
