Yuri News Update: January 2019

yuri news update january 2019

It may be a new year, but there’s still a lot of yuri news, and in case you haven’t heard apparently 2019 is the 100th anniversary of yuri, as Nobuko Yoshiya’s Yaneura no Nishojo was first published all the way back in 1919!

It’s pretty crazy to think of how far this genre has come, but even coming off one of the best years in yuri history, things can still get better, so raise your glass to Ms. Yoshiya, the real OG of our favorite genre~

Anime Review: Bloom Into You

bwlghy98494mglu2nahe5bqqpuf

Spoiler Warning!

I guess I’m a little late again to review this. However, with this one, I believe you might want to take your time to properly indulge, but also digest, what you’ve just watched.


Year: 2018
Length: 13 Episodes
Genre: School, Yuri
Studio: TROYCA
Story by: Nakatani Nio

All her life, Yuu has wondered about the romance depicted in all the shoujo manga she’s been reading, hoping that one day, she’d experience the same.

After witnessing student council president Touko turning down a confession with such ease and maturity, Yuu can’t help but ask Touko for advice, which leads to the two bonding over the fact that they both have never experienced love before. However, things take a sudden turn, as Touko confesses that she might actually start falling in love with Yuu.

Anime Fall Season 2018: Final Thoughts

anime fall season 2018 final thoughts

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our Final Thoughts of the 2018 fall anime season that just came to an end~


Bloom Into You • 9.5/10
Length: 13 Episodes • Genre: School, Yuri

bloom into you
Now, as the last of what I like to call the Big Three (namely Citrus, Asagao to Kase-san., and Bloom Into You) has come to an end, I first just want to state how very satisfied I am with what 2018 offered to us yuri fans. It’s quite hard to tell which of the Big Three was best, seeing that they all depicted the yuri in very different ways, but what I can say for sure is that the community made it very vocal that we liked all three.

Now Bloom Into You—as the last to come to an end—has a very special place in my heart for not only bringing the content of its manga onto the big screen, but also for delivering so much more. It’s hard to put into words what this adaptation did to me and probably the majority of the community. In short, it was some top-notch adaptation that I simply couldn’t be happier with.

Well, my review will soon follow, of course, but please be a little patient. During this time of the year, we have quite a lot of posts scheduled.

Yuri Anime 2019

yuri anime 2019

Just like our Yuri Anime 2013, Yuri Anime 2014, Yuri Anime 2015, Yuri Anime 2016, Yuri Anime 2017, and Yuri Anime 2018 lists, this one will also feature all the yuri shows that will air in 2019. Since it’s not even 2019 yet, this list is still in progress and will be updated whenever there are new shows to add. If you feel like we missed something, feel free to name your additions~

It should be noted that neither of the Sailor Moon movies have definite release dates, so it’s more of an assumption that they’ll release this year, but we felt like including them anyway. And it’s probably wishful thinking to trust that Hibike Euphonium! won’t totally abandon any and all subtext, but let’s go into this with some optimism! 😛

2018 Reader’s Choice Awards

2018 reader's choice yuri awards

Not too long ago, we gave you OUR choices for the best anime, manga, and visual novels of 2018, but this time, it’s YOUR turn to choose the winners.

Because some of the categories from our list are incredibly hard to narrow down to only a handful of nominees, we’ve left some of those categories out. Also, forgive us if the nominees skew towards anime. 😛


★ BEST YURI ANIME ★

There are other shows like Tachibanakan Triangle that could have been nominated, but let’s be real, everyone knows it’s a three horse race.

What to Look Forward to in 2019

After such an awesome year where yuri fans were able to witness major yuri anime adaptations from the likes of Citrus, Bloom Into You, and even Asagao to Kase-san., it’s time to look into the future and see what 2019 has in store for us.

Admittedly, 2018 spoiled us big time, probably not so much with a lot of major visual novel releases, but definitely when it comes to anime. I guess there’s just no way the new year can get anywhere close to that. Still, even now, we already know of quite a few anime releases that we should get excited for in 2019!
