Phryne was a lesbian magazine that only lasted for two issues (one came out in June 1995, the other in November 1995). It contained articles, short stories, manga, essays, and the like. We only scanlated the manga from the first issue. If you have the second issue and would like to scan it for us, or know where we can purchase it, please let us know.
Two manga from Phryne are commercially available from ALC Publishing: "My Sister's Wedding" (printed in Works) and Rica 'tte Kanji!

"Let's Return to the Forest," by Nemoto Yue, is a nearly textless manga about a pair of girls having a picnic in a forest.
"Community News," by Saitou Emi and the Heisei Community Committee, is a 4-panel manga strip.
In "P=NP?," by Taroh Amaguri, Eriko wonders if Shino is just going out with her so that Eriko will do her homework for her.
"Ririka and Chihiro's Exciting Life," by Otokuni Momo, is another 4-panel manga strip.
"Salyune," by Hashimoto Ikumi and Sarashina Mizuho, is a short, sweet science fiction story.
"Girlish Delights," by Mitose Noriko, is about a shop full of things that supposedly only girls understand.
In "A Cruel God," by Takano Youko and Shouya Toko, Kei is interested in a woman at the gym. Imagine her surprise when she sees her in a lesbian bar!
In "The Dolls' Apartment," by Mariko, Yayoi gets dumped, but then meets someone who understands her in a way her ex never did.
In "Drifting Body," by Matsumoto Michiyo, a woman reflects on her feelings for a friend who has passed away. This release is a joint with HotCakes. They have asked that their projects not be uploaded to any online readers except the Dynasty Reader.
"Nomia," by Memme, is an illustrated poem.
"Hey, Little Birdie," by Soramame Piyo, is about an inter-species lesbian couple. (If you like that idea, we highly recommend the webcomic Miss Bird and Miss Cat.)
"Huaqing Afterglow," by Li Lan-sheng, is about Yan Gui-fei, a beautiful woman from Chinese history.
