Anime Fall Season 2016: First Impressions

2016 fall anime

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the fall anime season that just started~

Hibike! Euphonium 2
Length: ? • Genre: Drama, Music, School • Studio: Kyoto Animation
hibike euphonium 2

Whoever thought that the second season of Hibike! Euphonium would feature any less yuri subtext than we already got in the first season was definitely in for a surprise, a very pleasant one. Not only did the yuri hype train start moving again, it was also fueled by so many small and big Kumiko x Reina moments that it’s hard to believe that it will ever come to an halt. I, in fact, can’t believe that any hetero romance for those two might be believable, especially for Reina, after seeing how they behave when they are around each other.

It was seriously the best thing in the world to watch these two interact with each other again, with all the subtle, and some even not so subtle, “yuri” gestures and looks they shared. I can’t wait for more, and I’m seriously going to throw a huge freaking tantrum if KyoAni actually includes any real heterosexual romance for either of my two new babies! Kyoto Animation, you have been warned!

Yuri Tournament – Best Yuri Kiss in Anime History – Finale

We’ve already reached the final round, and I gotta say, our three remaining kiss scenes definitely deserve to stand where they are right now.

Now will it be the bittersweet final kiss between our favorite priestesses, the long anticipated happy end kiss between Shizuma and Nagisa, or the oh so sweet after school kisses from Sakura Trick?

Despite the fact that my favorite kiss scene of all-time actually made it to the final round, the other two definitely deserve the title of Best Yuri Kiss as well.

Now let’s just wait and see which one will make it~

Anime Summer Season 2016: Final Thoughts

2016 summer anime

Thanks to upcoming reviews of Love Live! Sunshine!!, New Game!, and Amanchu!, the list this season is rather short and mostly devoid of yuri-ish titles. Nevertheless, the show must go on, so enjoy our Final Thoughts on the summer anime season that just came to an end~

Bananya • 6.5/10
Length: 13 (Short) Episodes • Genre: Comedy

If you were to look up fluff in the dictionary, I’m sure there would be a screenshot of Bananya staring back at you. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad, but it’s clearly for people who are into cute things above all else. There’s no plot, and the narrator is the only source of actual dialogue, yet it somehow works, and every episode is a surprisingly enjoyable look into the lives of tiny cats that live in bananas.

If the episodes were any longer than three minutes each, I think the show would grow tedious and it would lose a lot of its charm, but as it stands, just marveling at the adorableness of it all is enough for me.

Anime Review: Love Live! Sunshine!!

love live sunshine

Spoiler Warning – If you’re only interested in my ratings, scroll all the way down~

Basically, this new season of Love Live! is pretty much a clone of the very first Love Live! season, only with slightly better animation and characters with different names:

love live sunshine chika
Oops. Sorry, Chika!

Genki girl Hono-, I mean Chika, one day decides that she wants to be a school idol and thus starts looking for more members. Of course, the student council is—for mysterious reasons—not too happy about that, but they make it through anyway, gain more members on their way, and even get their initial opponents to join the team. Sounds familiar?

Anyway, the characters seem pretty similar to the μ’s girls as well, but I think I should let pictures speak instead.
