A lot of the yuri we have on our site is just too cute not to read, and that’s definitely true of this month’s best-selling one-shot, True Love That Starts with a Lie, starring two high schoolers who at first glance couldn’t be more different, but actually share more in common than they think. Black-haired Ai is a self-professed pervert who doesn’t really have many friends, but ends up pretending to be knowledgeable about sex when the ditzy but surprisingly pure Liliya accidentally finds Ai’s “lucky condom!” Also check out Wani Kurokoda’s other one-shot featuring the same characters, No Release Until Ecstasy is Achieved!
