If you took a long look at our List of Yuri Anime Kisses post, it might lead you to believe that Ikkitousen is an anime franchise that should be on yuri fans’ radar. But is that really the case? Well, *takes deep breath* read on to find out… 😛
It feels like we had a Yuri News Update just yesterday, but here we are again with another installment. Let’s get started~
Right off the bat, let’s start with something to REALLY get excited about. We’ve gotten to know Ratana Satis as the yuri genius behind Pulse, Lily Love, and Lily Love 2 ~Frosty Jewel~, but in case you’ve been wanting even more yuri goodness from her, she’s about to once again deliver the goods.
Soul Drifters is the title of her next work, and here’s a little preview courtesy of the kind folks over at Three Musqueerteers.
Looking good, huh? It seems like this is going to be something in the sci-fi genre, and even though we don’t yet know when to look out for this, yuri fans everywhere should already get excited. Very excited~
Thanks to shade for the heads up.
Upotte!! is an anime that I tried watching a few years ago, but I eventually dropped it. Now, it’s finally time to take care of some unfinished business, but that doesn’t mean that I suddenly enjoy this show now…
Kiddy Grade and Kiddy GiRL-AND are series that we’ve wanted to cover for a few years now, and we’re just finally starting to get around to it. Especially for the second season, these are supposed to be some yuri-ish anime that should be on everyone’s radar, so was this first season worth the wait? You know I can’t really answer that here, come on now. 😛
There’s some more yuri news to cover, so let’s get right to it.
Well, this is some potentially interesting news. It was announced that we’ll be getting a new twelve-episode anime in the spring of 2020 from Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii, and he’ll serve as creator and chief director. This is his first directorial gig in over thirty years, and that’s cool and all, but why are we mentioning this on YR again?
Well, you see, the anime was described as a slapstick comedy that’ll revolve around a vampire named Mai and her high school friends. It’s supposed to be a serious take on the girl-meets-girl theme ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), and the story will soley focus on five young girls and have no handsome men. Sounds interesting to me! 😛
Vlad Love is being brought to us by studios Drive and Production I.G, and who knows if this anime will actually have any yuri, but it definitely sounds like something to keep an eye on~
It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the 2019 summer anime season that just started~
This anime sounded unique, and oh was it. Basically, this is an anime about a girl wanting to lose weight, so she joins a gym in order to achieve that, but she gets a lot more than she bargained for. The first episode was just over-the-top and absurd, yet I liked it a lot!
Hibiki’s a big eater, so you know this will all be a struggle for her, and that’s where a lot of the comedy comes in. Things get further ratcheted up thanks to a classmate of hers that has also joined the gym, Akemi. On the surface, Akemi seems perfect, but Hibiki is shocked to find that Akemi has a muscle fetish, so the gym is basically heaven for her. Akemi reminds me a lot of Yumeko from Kakegurui, but instead of getting off on gambling, Akemi gets off on muscles. Yeah, she’s pretty great. 😛
Between Hibiki and Akemi, this show already seems to have two really entertaining characters, and despite being a little crude, I think the comedy is really enjoyable as well. Also, this anime is somewhat educational about exercise, but not in a heavy-handed way, and even those scenes remain surprisingly entertaining, thanks to the characters. This show may be kinda dumb, but I think it’s funny, so I’m hoping it can keep this up for the rest of the season~
This was another series that readers pointed us towards, even though the yuri here is practically non-existent. Anyway, lack of yuri aside, this was a nice recommendation that ended up being a lot of fun~
