News Update – More Yuri-ish Anime On The Way

As always, I’m really behind on most of the important updates there are for us yuri fans, and that’s exactly why I decided to collect all the yuri-related news from the past few weeks and months and post them all together in one post. Hopefully I didn’t forget about anything. If I did, feel free to let me know in the comments.

First of all, let’s list all the new yuri or yuri-ish shows that were announced. On a side note, clicking on the shows’ title will redirect you to the websites where I got the info from.

As most of you hopefully know, this weekend, the Comic Market 86 is taking place in Tokyo. Tons of doujinshi, CDs, games. and whatnot will be released during the 3 days this event is taking place. But other than fanmade goods, there was also some quite important news released, so here are the most recent updates:

  • The Nanoha series will yet again get another season, called Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid. It seems as if this season will focus on Vivio, instead of Nanoha, but as long as Nanoha and Fate are still part of the show, I’m so going to watch it. I guess it’s now time to finally read the manga. Maybe there will be some NanoFate moments waiting for us~
  • Kiniro Mosaic will get a second season called Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic. No more information has been revealed yet.
  •  Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka? (Is the Order a Rabbit?) will also get a second season, but just like in Kiniro Mosaic‘s case, not much information is out yet.

Other than these recent announcements, there are also quite a lot of others that have been around for a bit longer:

  • Originally, Kantai Collection was set to premiere this summer. However, they couldn’t make it, which is why it was delayed to Fall 2014. Unfortunately, this won’t happen either, and the new release date is set for January 2015. Let’s all hope that there won’t be any more delays.
  • On a brighter note, Strike Witches‘ OVA Operation Victory Arrow will air in theaters September 19th and 20th. A third season has also been announced last year, so there’s a lot to look forward to!
  • As many of you probably already know, Yuru Yuri will also get another season, but in this case it’s not exactly a new season. It’s an OVA, titled Yuru Yuri Nachuyachumi!. It will be released in selected theaters at the end of November this year.
  • There’s also great news for the Love Live! fans, but the ones who watched the second season surely already know about this. So as it seems, there will be a Love Live! movie at some point, but I couldn’t find any more information regarding that movie.
  • What I’m excited for the most is the news that there will be a special episode released with the Akuma no Riddle Blu-Ray set in December. I have no idea what it will be about, even though I have some assumptions.

In other news, Studio Ghibli’s movie When Marnie Was There started airing in theaters this summer. I’ve only seen the trailer so far, and it surprisingly looks pretty yuri-ish to me. Well, I haven’t taken the time to look up more information about this movie, so maybe it’s not as yuri-ish as it looks at first glance. But since I’m planing to watch it anyway, I’ll surely find out about it soon.

Finally, let’s also talk about the cancellation of the yuri magazine Hirari. Just like Tsubomi, Hirari is yet another yuri magazine that seemingly didn’t sell well enough. I can’t really say that this came as a surprise, but I’m nonetheless pretty sad to hear this. For the ones who have never heard about this magazine, it’s probably enough to say that Kase-san was one of the manga running in this one. Feeling down already? Well, we still have Yuri Hime magazine, and even some manga that run as online releases….

Before I forget it, since this is an update post, here are some of my recently updated entries. Feel free to check them out:

  1. KinMoza's second season was confirmed ages ago xD

    As much as I will promote Vivid as being an amazing continuation to StrikerS, Nanoha and Fate are very minor characters in it, so watching it purely for their moments isn't the best of ideas. If you liked the Wolkenritter though, they've actually got a fair amount of limelight, seeing as how they're connected to the other lead character in this.

    About Gochuumon, I've only seen a single source for it, and it's some random 2Chan post. This may be a hoax. Vivid's got its website, and, like I said earlier, KinMoza announced its second season ages ago. The only actual news was that it would be called “Hello! Kiniro Mosaic”. This was confirmed on the official Twitter.
    Gochuumon though…nothing. Not to mention, that image could easily be a shopped on logo and stuff on an official image that was used on a BD release. Evidenced here: (found by a reverse image search of the source)


  2. I was also not sure whether the news about Gochuumon was legit.
    Couldn't find much, other than posts on like 2 websites and that one picture with 2nd season or whatever written in it.
    I'm going to leave this info where it is until someone can 100% prove me wrong.
    I know, that's probably not the best idea, but I usually trust YuriNation, which is where I got that info from.

    Sad to hear that about the new Nanoha season…
    I guess I'll just read it and see for myself. Ah well, in the end, I'll watch it anyway 😛


  3. I think OG may have jumped the gun on this one. I mean, it feels like it's inevitable it would get another season, but I just don't think it's been announced yet. We'll know for sure in a couple days though. I doubt the official Twitter would neglect to mention something so important. Could just be too busy with Comiket stuff to update the site/twitter right now.


  4. Thank you so much for reporting on 思い出のマーニー. Somehow it had escaped my noticed until now and I'm all kinds of ridiculously excited. xD


  5. Pretty sad about Hirari u.u
    I think it's a shame that yuri's become more popular… Well, it's good to have more yuri <.< but we're losing some really good yuri series because of the cancellation of little magazines like those.


  6. It's a shame that yuri is becoming more popular? I think you mean the opposite, right? 😛
    On the other hand you might be right. Maybe it's also a problem that bigger yuri magazines like the Yuri Hime make it harder for smaller magazines to survive.


  7. Now let's see…did we forget to put up Non Non Biyori S2 news flash? No, I thought not, after all it's been several months since the 2nd season was announced to be GO! Just gonna pester you on not mentioning my fav Koufuku Graffiti and Illya Drei Ova 😛


  8. Here's another recently announced original animation that has no male protags. haha. Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru >>>


  9. zzzz….Let's not forget the other media….zzz….FLOWERS -Natsu hen- by Gungnir/InnocentGrey…..z……….zzz……..of course there are also….Bullet Girls (PS VITA)……and….”Adachi to Shimamura Vol.3″…….just released this month of August 2014…….zzz…….


  10. I actually didn't know about Non Non Biyori, so thanks for that 🙂
    I knew about Illya Drei, but I googled it and couldn't find anything anymore. Well, I thought it would be an anime and not an OVA, so that might have been the problem 😛


  11. I'm not sure whether this one is really important right now.
    I guess I need to find some more information about it, but I think we can't really say whether it will have yuri or not.


  12. Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru! I can't wait for this one~! (actually, I can, thanks to the excruciating, continuously piling workload I keep getting) I got really excited for this one once I watched this recent 16second pv for the anime:

    I think I'll really love the music “yuyuyu” will bring us~

    And when I abbrieviate “yuyuyu” I don't mean “Yuyushiki” which I find is another enjoyable, and “healing” anime~

    Oh, I must;ve mentioned this before but Binchou-tan is another anime (in the 2006s) that you should watch should you ever need to take a break from the chaos of dramatic anime/life.


  13. I've seen the trailer for this one already, it's probably the closest thing to yuri we get for the next season.
    Well, I don't even know whether it will have any yuri at all, but I'm looking forward to it nonetheless.


  14. Wow, that is glorious subtext indeed.
    Actually that's not just subtext anymore.
    Reminds me of that one official picture with Madoka and Homura both in wedding dresses 😛
