Let’s see what this past week had in store for us yuri fans. Just a warning, you better prepare yourself for what is coming.
As we all know, there was a mysterious Citrus PV announced just about a week ago. I speculated that it could be a PV for an anime adaptation, while others tried to find a more likely explanation for a possible Citrus PV.
As it turns out, I was wrong, and I’m not that surprised. An anime adaptation was just too good to be true, though, even if it didn’t happen now, I won’t give up hope that easily! If Citrus is popular enough to get something like this, I’m sure there is still hope for even more.
Now what did we get? Watch for yourself:
I know I expected more, but damn I’m so hyped right now! Even if this is just a short manga recap, I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. It looks really good, but what is most important is definitely the fact that Mei and Yuzu got their own voices.
This is usually the most exciting part of seeing a manga getting an anime adaptation, and even if this is just a 3-minute long video, I love it for the simple fact that they kind of took this manga to the next level by adding voices. Still, I have to admit, even though the voices are really fitting, I always imagined Yuzu’s voice to be a little more girly and Mei’s voice to be a little deeper and probably even sexier.
I’m sure that I’m not the only one seeing it this way, but even so, I’m still really happy with the outcome.
Yeah, I know, this should be a news post and here I am fangirling about Citrus, but please bear with me. I’ll change topics now, so let’s move on.
A few days ago, we finally got some more news about the upcoming anime Yuri Kuma Arashi Here’s a short description:
Some time ago, the asteroid Kumaria exploded in the depths of space.
The resulting fragments became a meteor shower that rained down on Earth, and for some reason, bears all over the world rose up and ttacked humanity! In “Man vs. Bear,” the bears ate the humans and the humans shot the bears, resulting in a seemingly unending battle and a cycle of hatred. In the end, a giant “Wall of Extinction” was erected between the humans and bears and a state of mutual nonaggression came to pass….
The human world.
One morning, Arashigaoka Academy students Kureha Tsubaki and Sumika Izumino were by themselves and saw the “Yuri Flower” that bloomed in a flower bed. The two are friends as well as lovers. The flower bed is an important place to the two. At that moment, the Bear Alarms ring out! The bears are invading the human world, and humans are being attacked! Are they really those bears? One mystery invokes yet another mystery, one after another. The curtain rises magnificently on Yuri Kuma Arashi!
What to say to this story…. I really don’t know.
This sounds so messed up and random that I can’t see how this is going to be any good, though I shouldn’t judge it this early. The trailer actually looks pretty good.
Well, we don’t really see much other than the seemingly high animation quality, but it’s better than nothing, so here you go:
The first episode will premier in January 2015, so let’s just see how things will look then. Right now, I’m not that hyped about Yuri Kuma Arashi, but I already know that this might change really quickly.
