Okay, so here we go. I hope no one hates me too much after this review…
Episodes: 12, each about 10 minutes long
Genre: Drama, Yuri
Yuma and Hotaru have been best friends since childhood, but after Hotaru gets her first boyfriend, Yuma feels like the two of them are drifting apart. She gets a boyfriend herself, but as things seem to work out more with him, Hotaru starts acting weird, trying all sorts of things with her as “practice” for her slowly building relationship with her boyfriend Takeda.
This review comes as a suggestion from YuriReviews reader KDucky11. What do you get when you cross a traditional slice of life anime with the anything-but-traditional stylings of Studio SHAFT (the Monogatari series, Madoka★Magica, Maria†Holic)? If you said “an entertaining twist on a well-worn genre”, pat yourself on the back, because that’s exactly what Hidamari Sketch is~
It’s that time of the month again, news time! We have a mixed bag of all sorts of news for you, some a little older, some pretty new. Let’s start~
Ne No Kami – The Two Princess Knights of Kyoto Part 2 was just released and is now available for purchase on Denpasoft and Steam. There’s also an uncensored patch available (only for the Steam version). You can get it here.
For those interested, here’s Part 1 as well. Get it on Steam or Denpasoft.
Returning to the YuriReviews time machine, we’re taking a look at a series that I think has been a bit under the radar, Venus Versus Virus. As it turns out, there may be a reason that this anime probably isn’t on many people’s watch list…
After three seasons of Nanoha reviews, you thought we were done with the series? Ha! Good one. You can’t have a long-running franchise without a spin-off, so enter Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid. With more NanoFate mama action, this has to be good, right? Right?! Ummm…
We received so many awesome and interesting ideas for possible topics and such positive feedback to the whole idea of doing interactive “Let’s talk about” posts, so thanks a lot for giving the feedback needed~
Before we start, we want to let you guys decide what you wanna talk about first. I know, the list is quite huge, but all topics just seem super interesting, so we just added them all:
Ever since it was first announced back in November 2016, details surrounding the Citrus anime adaptation have been few and far between. Back in June, we learned that the seiyuus from the Drama CD would be reprising their roles, and now, the studio, starting date, main staff, and first PV have been revealed!
Set to begin airing in January, Citrus will be helmed by Takeo Takahashi (Spice and Wolf, Rokka no Yuusha, Hinako Note) at studio Passione. The scripts will be overseen by Naoki Hayashi (Flip Flappers, Da Capo 3), and Izuro Ijuuin (Barakamon, Working!!!) will be designing the characters and serving as the chief animation director.
Each of these staff members have done some good work, and after seeing the PV, I think this adaptation is already looking far more promising than Netsuzou TRap ever did. Take a look~
