Great Yuri VN!

Quite frankly, this is the best translated yuri visual novel out there.

Atmosphere

It's very atmospheric like the description says. Throughout most of the novel, there's a soothing, peaceful atmosphere that is very relaxing. However, at times, when it wants to, it excels at pulling your heart strings by being melancholy. The music does a great job of assisting the writing in creating the atmosphere, even if the number of tracks is sparse.

Art

The art is great and unique. Granted, there aren't a lot of CGs and only 2 character sprites, but they get the job done.

Character/Story

The characters and story are pretty good as well. It's short and takes place almost entirely in one room, but within that short time span and limited setting, the characters are fleshed out to the point that a reader could emphasize with them pretty well. While I would love it to be longer, it does not by any means feel incomplete.

Conclusion

Buy it. I'm confident yuri fans out there will like this VN like I did, even if it's a bit different from the yuri VNs that are currently translated. Perhaps even romance fans who normally are not into yuri will be enamored by this game.

A very touching story

"Lonely Yuri" is, as advertised, a very atmospheric love story between two girls.

Art:
The art for the characters is very Distinct and beautiful to look at, the backgrounds are rather simple stills blurred likely to put greater emphasis on the characters as they are the main driving point of the story.

Sound:
As this is a rather small game there are no voices. This oddly enough plays to this games strength as a visual novel in that the music and odd ambient sounds (rain,etc.) provide plenty of emotional substance along with the writing.

Writing/story:
In my opinion, for the length of the story, it couldn't have been written any better. It's solid & sweet dialogue times itself with the aforementioned soundtracks providing the necessary feelings required to enjoy it, There were a few spelling errors here and there possibly through the translation process but none of them were so bad that it detracted from the story.

Overall:
Again "Lonely Yuri" is a beautiful, if short, story about two girl fateful meeting and budding romance, there is of course more to
the story than that but I won't spoil it for anyone.

A highly, highly, highly recommended VN for yuri fans and perhaps romance fans in general.
I shed tears, maybe you will too?
