''Husky and Medley'' is a {{Yuri}} romance manga illustrated by pixiv artist Kurosada. The dialogue is almost entirely based on chat logs housed on the Japanese internet forum 2channel, which purportedly chronicles the [[BasedOnATrueStory real life events]] of the eponymous characters, and making it something of a DistaffCounterpart to [[Franchise/TrainMan Densha Otoko]].

* MeaningfulName: Both of the main characters "names" are chosen by the 2ch anons following the story, mostly for ease of reference. "Medley" likely refers to the fact that the text messages she sends to Husky are often randomly selected from among the anons' suggestions, making her part of the conversation a medley of various forum users.
** It's actually stated in chapter 3 that the name is chosen from the word "me-dorei" or "female slave" in Japanese. Medorei-Medley...

* RomanAClef
RelaxOVision: When Husky and Medley's lovemaking progresses to the main event, the manga comedically censors the action by cutting to a relaxing view of a ship sailing through a beautiful fjord with the caption "due to recent developments, the planned program has been modified." Husky and Medley's speech bubbles continue, hinting what's going on and leaving the visuals up to the readers' imagination.
* SchoolgirlLesbiansRomanAClef: The story is purportely based on a real-life relationship, with the two girls' identities concealed by nicknames.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: A story of same-sex love between two girls in high school.



* {{Yuri}}

to:

* {{Yuri}}
{{Yuri}}: A manga focusing on the romantic and eventually sexual relationship between two young women. While it's relatively down-to earth and realistic compared to Yuri written as fiction, since it is based on what was claimed to be a true story, love between two girls is represented as a pure and beautiful thing.

* {{Gayngst}}: Downplayed in chapter 6; while eating lunch with their friends, Medley and Husky overhear some girls at another table expressing disgust over a couple of lesbian students. Hearing it affects both Medley and Husky, but they're more worried about how the other one took it and resolve not to allow such people and opinions to get between them.
