Yuri Anime Review: Asagao to Kase-san OVA

Asagao-to-Kase-san.-Characters-02After an fortunately not so long wait, it’s finally time for the second big yuri highlight of the year. What started out as a mere rumor, soon developed into a confirmed one-episode-long OVA, and as it turns out, it’s not only that, but rather something close to a short movie even!

To say that finding out about the length of this so called OVA was a pleasant surprise, is an understatement, a big one, actually. I was more thrilled than anything to find out about the actual length of this OVA, and all of a sudden, the fact that this was not a full-fledged anime didn’t seem to bother me that much anymore.

So just about a week ago, the OVA finally aired and presented to us roughly an hour of almost solely pure and unfiltered yuri fluff. What a time to be alive! Continue reading

Anime Review: Mouretsu Pirates

mouretsu pirates

It’s understandable if you missed Mouretsu Pirates the first time around. After all, it’s several years old and doesn’t exactly scream “yuri”, does it? But you might be a little surprised to hear that this show does indeed have a good dose of yuri, and I’m not just talking about subtext~

Anime Review: Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san

2018 has been a great year to be a yuri fan, and another anime with yuri undertones that you might’ve missed was Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san, which aired this past winter. An anime about ramen? And it’s not short? How’s that gonna work out? Well, you can probably guess…

Let’s Talk About Something Different: Part IV

Ever since Citrus finished airing a few weeks ago, I’ve felt like I was stripped from the gayness that I need so dearly in my life. So what did I do?

I looked for some new anime to watch and gladly came across shows like Comic Girls, for example, but it wasn’t even nearly enough to satisfy my hunger for gayness, so I searched elsewhere as well.

What I then found was the second season of Wynonna Earp as well as the Carmilla movie. Both of which were already discussed in previous “Let’s Talk About” posts, but since there’s a new season, plus a whole new movie to talk about now, why not continue?


wynonna earpSo let’s start with Wynonna Earp. First up, yes the lesbian characters are still alive, hurray! After the little shock that the ending of the last season gave me, my favorite officer and lady killer, Nicole, is still very much alive and very much in love with our favorite Earp sister, Waverly. And if you thought that the first season was already packed with memorable moments between these two, then you better get ready for season two!

Let’s Get to Know Each Other Better – The YuriReviews Guestbook

let's get to know each other better yurireviews

So sorry about the picture, I just found it funny for some reason 😀

This will be more of an interactive kind of post, and we’d much appreciate if you’d take the time to participate as well. As the title would suggest, this is going to be a post in which we want to get to know you, our readers, a little better.

So far, we’ve mostly just covered who we are and more information about us, but this time, we’d like to focus on you guys.

YuriReviews has developed into a blog where a lot of interaction happens. Mostly between the readers and Jamesy and I, but also among you guys, individually. It’s a really awesome thing to see conversations going on and on and people having a good time talking to each other about the genre we all came to love, but also many more things. There are so many regulars that we’ve come to know and love, and there are also so many new faces showing up every now and then. So we thought, why not create something like a little guest book?

Yuri News Update: May 2018

There’s a lot to cover in this Yuri News Update, so let’s get started~


bloom into you anime

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard about the amazing news that Bloom Into You is getting an anime adaptation.

Unlike some other recent yuri anime adaptations *cough* Netsuzou TRap & Tachibanakan Triangle *cough*, an anime studio with some respectable titles under its belt will be handling this in TROYCA (Aldnoah.Zero, Re:Creators, and Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru).

When we last checked in, this was a leak that had yet to be confirmed, but it’s now official, and October is when this is set to premiere. If you remember, last year, Bloom Into You won our Yuri Tournament to decide which yuri manga was most deserving of an anime adaptation, so I think it’s safe to say that all of you folks who voted for it are responsible for this. Thanks. 😉
