I’m yet again super late with this announcement, and I’m really grateful to Mai88 who pointed this out to me today.
Most of you probably don’t know Hanayamata yet, which is no surprise. Only the first chapter of the manga has been translated so far, and even though it is said to have some yuri, we still can’t be sure how much it will eventually be. I have seen this one on the Yuri Project Wiki and it also got the Yuri tag on numerous websites online, so I think it’s safe to assume that there will be at least some yuri going on, and hopefully more the just subtext.
Here’s a short plot summary:
Normal appearance, normal intelligence, normal in arts and sports… just normal. This is the entirely normal 14-year-old, Naru Sekiya. While she admires “Heroines” she continues to live a normal life until one moonlit night she meets a fairy. This foreign girl then guides her into the extraordinary world of the yosakoi dance.
The main Staff will be:
Director: Atsuko Ishizuka
Writer/Series Composition: Reiko Yoshida
