2017 spring anime

Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai
Studio: Artland, TNK • Genre: Ecchi, Fantasy

Okay guys, I know this show is bad. Very bad, to be honest. We won’t get much plot, what we get might not make any sense, and the whole show will simply focus on girls with big boobs in skimpy clothing fighting girls in even less clothing with even bigger boobs.

Let’s just move past the fact that it’s just not gonna be the best show of the season and focus on something else, because what this show will feature is yuri content, a lot of it actually, if what the first episode had to offer will be continued—and I sure believe it will.

So far, it really all reminds me a little of Valkyrie Drive, just without the yuri romance, and funny thing is, I’m actually enjoying it. Not such a big surprise to some of you, I’m sure, but I personally didn’t expect that. So I guess this means this show is going to be my personal guilty pleasure of the season~

Anime Winter Season 2017: Final Thoughts

2017 winter anime

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our Final Thoughts on the winter anime season that just came to an end~

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon • 9/10
Length: 13 Episodes • Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life

Best show of the whole season? Pretty much! Tohru confirmed as best girl of the whole season? Damn right! Kanna confirmed as the cutest girl of the whole season? Do I even have to ask?!

So in case I didn’t make it clear enough, Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon was an excellent show, with excellent characters and some excellent comedy. It was charming, funny, and had the right amount of subtext to keep the yuri fans interested, yet it didn’t disappoint in this department either, even though it still only stayed as subtext.

All in all, I was very pleased with this little gem, if my rating doesn’t already make it clear enough. Find the full review right here.

Which Anime Should We Review Next?

yuri anime

Coming on the heels of our latest YuriReviews survey, we thought it would kind of be a cool idea for you guys to determine which anime we’ll be reviewing next here on YR. The ten choices listed in the poll at the bottom of the post include some classic series as well as some newer ones, but I think they’d all make for interesting reviews.

We’ve listed some quick info on the nominees, as well as some questionable reasons why they should or shouldn’t be chosen. 😛

If what you’d prefer to read about isn’t listed, feel free to name your choice in the comments section~

ange vierge
Anime: Ange Vierge
Year: 2016
Length: 12 Episodes
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Magic, School

Why it should be next: It’s the most recent anime on this list. Who needs iconic series when you can have shiny and fancy animation from yesteryear?

Why it shouldn’t be next: Who needs shiny and fancy animation when you can have an iconic series from yuri’s past?

Anime Review: Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon

kobayashi-san chi no maid dragonYear: 2017
Episodes: 13
Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Slice of Life

The story follows Kobayashi’s daily life as an office worker, master of a cute maid, and in one way or another, also mother of dragons. That’s probably the simplest way to describe the story in one sentence, though that is, of course, not even nearly all there is to it, as her cute maid is in fact a dragon herself who came from another world to find shelter. She finds just that by living with Kobayashi, working as her devoted maid, and occasionally attracting more dragons to come her way.

Anime Review: Kuzu no Honkai

kuzu no honkai

WARNING: REVIEW WILL HAVE SPOILERS

Continuing our trek through the yuri-ish shows that the winter anime season had to offer, we now come across Kuzu no Honkai. For an anime named Scum’s Wish, I have to say that given the actions of the characters involved, that’s a very appropriate title. Let me explain why~

Yuri News Update – April 2017

It’s time for another News Update. This time we’re focusing on anime news instead of the typical visual novel news that has recently invaded all of our news posts.

yamada and kase-sanLet’s start right away with some more or less sad news concerning the anime adaptation of Kase-san. As it turns out, what was advertised with the mysterious poster that the whole community talked about a week ago wasn’t in fact a full anime adaptation, but instead “only” a short Youtube video. Still, I don’t think we should lose hope just yet. If this video—or more like the manga—proves to be or get popular enough, who knows, maybe we’ll still get an anime sooner or later.

If you haven’t already seen the preview, you can watch it right here:
