  1. Hi there,

    I couldn't agree more, but that's a problem with many shows, books, manga, anything really.

    I actually stopped reading reviews of Yuri Kuma, because I was so upset with what people who partly only watched one or two episodes had to say about this…
    It's truly sad…

    Like

  2. Poor kuma anime. Also dont know how it works but if i can ill name some of my recommendations. Re-kan and show by rock have some yuri. But maybe its in the low level type. Also im hunting down another yuri anime for 2015. A friend told me there was one but he didnt gave me a name…. 😦

    Like

  3. There will be this anime, Valkyrie Drive. It seems that will be a lot of action and fights, the girls have big tits, but in the PV, they kiss a lot and there's no male character until now.
    Maybe will be Queen's Blade with girl-on-girl fanservice. I'm new here and don't know how you people receives this kind of anime.

    here is the pv: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuSBsIK0Mr8

  4. kuma anime must deleted from the list it was so terrible ….mikagura gakuen i like it a lot…. it was the most intresting … i dont know if its aprropriate to add it but i liked re-kan too and it has some yuri romance not much you can rate it

    Like

  5. There's still 1 more episode left, but I'm only at episode 7 of 13, so I still have a ways to go.

    And there hasn't been very much subtext (up to where I'm at), so I'm not even sure it should be on the list. 😛

    Then again, Koufuku Graffiti is on there, and I gave it a 1.5, so anything is possible….

  6. you have a point i didnt looked that it had to finish first so that you can add it ….because mikagura finished in monday… acctually ra-kan what they say continiously is that we ll stay friends forever or i will be in your side forever .. but they said some things like they will be couple i dont want to spoil the story so i dont know what is appropriate to write … butin my opinion even if it was yuri anime completly they wouldnt release it so i think that they leave it in our imagination more

    Like

  7. Inoue saying she wanted to be Amami's friend forever didn't really do much to change my opinion. And it didn't help that like 3 minutes later the Roll-call Samurai said the same thing….

    But just looking at the yuri rating system, I suppose I'll add it in, but the yuri rating is gonna be really low.

  8. The newest Sensation will be Valkyrie Drive. Cuz It has a combat system similar to Simoun where the girls have to kiss in order to battle. It is confirmed that the anime will be released in October. Guez you should add it with a high yuri rating 😉

  9. Hey how about making this not just a yuri review blog but also a site that will allow yuri viewers all around the world to contact yuri anime directors and give comments/compliments/critics for their yuri anime or even request for another soeason or giving of suggestions etc. It will be good for the anime directors as well to keep going on with their work and get motivated. I know we can contact some directors indirectly through e-mailing their production company but most people doesn't know that, so if a site can do the help then they will be pleased too. With the gaining popularity you guys can even rate anime with votes and let directors see how far they have succeed 🙂

  12. I am out of yuri animes now so I started watching Non Non biyori repeat which was out recently. Well theres no real yuri in it but the story revolves around four girls who attends to a village school. The anime shows the life of countryside n its beauty. But still it has a lil potential for yuri fans specially the ones who are out of animes and desperate like me 😉

  15. Beautiful list love it. Love Kantai collection and yuri kuma was ok too. There is speculations on a Citrus anime and a Miss sunflower anime looking foward to that. I've been waiting for a decent yuri anime for years right after sasameki koto and aoi hana.

  16. My phone is being weird and won't let me comment, but I wanted to talk to you regarding “Senki Zesshou Symphogear GX”'s yuri rating. The show has no real yuri, or any mention of it. If any romance is mentioned, it's romance with a guy. Any feelings between the girls are strictly platonic.
    P.S. Your list has helped me a lot with finding awesome yuri animes. Thanks! 😀

  17. Oh, very good timing! We were just searching for someone who could give us an accurate yuri rating for this one.

  18. Greetings,
    I have always been a fan of anime in general. But I relate to Yuri genre only slightly on a romantic aspect for the most part. Though I wish I could Identify in all other aspect as well.
    It is just that for some unknown reason, Most yuri anime and even manga, are about middle school, high school girls. The weird thing is that there is a lot of mature content in these stories which gets a little uncomfortable to me. For I am not a girl but a Woman.
    I wish many more yuri anime/manga authors, would make this genre less flat and boring. It lacks variety in age, lifestyle, background, etc.
    Why not make it interesting stories with adults above 25 years old or even older as the main characters? But a lack in age variety is not the only boring thing about yuri anime/manga. Many stories are also void of substance.
    I cannot come up with a reason of why this is. Especially nowadays when all kinds of Sh*t is acceptable in the anime/manga “society”. And let's not even talk about the hentai acceptance of EVERYTHING.
    So, Can anyone tell me why the Yuri genre lacks so much? I mean…Yaoi authors(many of them female) make the most exciting, intriguing pieces.
    Why can't that be something yuri like Ai No Kusabi? Or Hybrid Child or even the yuri version of Junjou Romantica? I don't know.
    It seems the yaoi genre has a variety of age group, with a variety of background, social status and everything else you can think of. Many stories are more complex, substantial, mature, sensual and intriguing.
    I think that many yuri Watchers/readers are eager, ready and willing for yuri that is more exciting, intriguing, diverse, and engaging than what we encounter today.
    At the present, as far a manga goes, I am very much into the Yuri Korean manhwas, Namely: Fluttering feelings, and of course, What Does The Fox Say? I wish they could turn these into animes Don't you?

    Like

  19. Glad I could be of service! I would've responded sooner, but I didn't get a notification. I decided to look into the anime, as the cover and plot seemed pretty awesome. And not to spoil anything, but it is definitely a tear-jerker. I didn't get through it without crying 😛

    Like

  20. Greetings back!
    As you stated your subjective thoughts and opinions I will just do the same.
    About the age of of characters in yuri anime I can only agree. We don't have a choice but to enjoy the love stories of high school girls. Personally, IF I could choose I would also enjoy slightly older couples than that. But that is preference. As to why this is the case I'd claim that it's simply because the average age of characters in ALL anime/manga is about the age of an high schooler. I can't complain about the contents. Not missing anything so far but I am surely satisfied with much less as long as it's cute or sexy yuri 😀
    As for the comparison with yaoi stuff, I have a slightly different opinion. A more negative one, maybe I am, again, too biased.
    I haven't seen that many anime of that genre but a few of the considered “popular” ones. For example also Junjou Romantica. But I don't find them to be exciting and/or in intriguing and especially not diverse. I find the way, the love between boys is portrayed extremely off putting. Rough in one word. It's always kinda forced because at least 1 of them always got a problem with romance or just his sexuality itself. Like in JR, he is always jealous, claims not to be and then is forced into some kissing action which he of course wants, but is not portrayed like that. You know what I mean? Add the age difference to that and it becomes even more disturbing. To say it very superficially, yaoi stuff has more variety in topics and characters but those are just given to make everything….let's say weirder. I wouldn't want that to apply to yuri anime. Then I rather have 2 high school girls with the typical cliches than with big age gaps for example….
    But I agree on the last part. Fluttering Feelings would be a great anime. For now I am hoping for Citrus though 😀

  21. Valkyrie drive : mermaid can probably straight go up to a 10/10 yuri rating. So far it actually seems quite decent o.o The strong, dependable but definitely a bit shy knight character and the princess. I think, this could become very interesting character development wise or a complete disaster :p

    Like

  22. You were totally right about Hibike! Euphonium…it was like: this one time in band class…nothing really happened, but you were totally expecting something, weren't you? — If it weren't for that interesting talk in the woods, I think the series would've been a total loss for me…especially with sensei smile-and-be-sadistic. What was with that guy? There's nothing creepier than someone smiling and speaking in a nice, calm tone, while they beat you with what's left of your pride…

    Like

  23. Not a bad list, but I wonder if you shouldn't re-think a couple of the scores:

    For Re-kan!, the Yuri intensifies somewhat towards the end of the series. While being only (very) obvious subtext earlier on, the last few episodes are blatantly obvious about subtext, and the last few moments of the last episode essentially confirm a canon ship. No kiss, but it's basically stated out loud it's a thing. (A new season would allow for more Yuri to be shown, but I sort of doubt we'll see more of the series…) ;(

    For Symphogear GX, there is some, or little subtext between most of the couples (though I have no idea where the one comment about hetero relationships came from, there's no such thing apparent in the show..)…expect for one couple (this season anyway): Shirabe and Kirika. We have their various songs this season, including lyrics about love as I recall (might be wrong about this one though), as well as basically a straight up confession in the middle of a fight. (“Why do you keep protecting me like that?! Why won't you let me fight?!” “Because I love you!” – That kind of confession.) They are pretty much main characters now, having joined the cast in season 2 and now, in season 3, getting quite a bit of moments to themselves.

    Like

  24. I don't even remember Re-Kan! all that well anymore, but nope, not changing it. 😛
    And L didn't watch it. 😛

    Neither of us watched Symphogear, but everybody says something different, including that hetero comment from that person named Unknown…. Suspicious. 😀

    I think it's already had 2 or 3 different scores, but it's ultimately L's decision~
