Anise was a lesbian magazine that ran from 1996-2003 (with a break between 1997 and 2001); as far as we know, there were 9 issues total. Like Phryne, it contained articles, short stories, manga, essays, and so on. Rica 'tte Kanji! (available for purchase in English from ALC Publishing) and Plica both ran in this magazine.
We'll be doing an assortment of manga from various issues of the magazine.

"When She Touches Me," by Amaguri Tarou, is a teacher-student story.
"Song in Blue," by Amano Tenshi, is a slightly more upbeat look at the "my ex is getting married" story.
In Nohara Mini's "Chocolate-Covered Almonds," a woman thinks about someone from her past.
In "Baby Lips," by Obara Ayako, Noriko reacts badly to Chiharu's new makeup.
In "The Power of Love: I Miss You," by Obara Ayako, a couple has trouble finding time to spend together because one of them is working overtime.
Morishima Akiko's "Off Time" is about growing old with the one you love.
Morishima Akiko's Happy Picture Diary is a short 4-panel comic series about a couple in their twenties. Chapter 5 is the last chapter that we know of (more may have been published as doujinshi, like the one page in Futarigoto).
In "Gender Game," by Yuikawa Amane, two women consider their roles in their relationship with each other.
In her 4-panel strips for Anise, Ooharu Akira looks at the humorous side of dating and relationships.
The protagonist of Kashima Ayumi's "Androids Don't Look Back" wants to be an android.
"TakuLez Meet-Up Report" is an old event report by Morishima Akiko. It's about a lesbian otaku meet-up.
In the first installment of "Hiiragi's English-Japanese Dictionary," Hiiragi considers the English word "abnormal." Note #1: This chapter touches on the subject of sexual assault. Note #2: This release is a joint with HotCakes. They have asked that their projects not be uploaded to any online readers except the Dynasty Reader.
In "Ovum," by Matsumoto Michiyo, a young woman deals with both parental rejection and her growing feelings for her new roommate.
