It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our Final Thoughts on the winter anime season that just came to an end~
So in case I didn’t make it clear enough, Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon was an excellent show, with excellent characters and some excellent comedy. It was charming, funny, and had the right amount of subtext to keep the yuri fans interested, yet it didn’t disappoint in this department either, even though it still only stayed as subtext.
All in all, I was very pleased with this little gem, if my rating doesn’t already make it clear enough. Find the full review right here.
Man, where do I even start with this show? This was one of those shows that you love and hate all at the same time. You’re captivated, yet disgusted, covering your eyes only to part your fingers and sneak a peek at the ensuing sadness.
Yes, pretty much everyone involved in this show was horrible to some degree (with Akane EASILY being the worst of the worst), but Hana x Ecchan was pretty amazing. I’ve been wanting to see some yuri that’s dealt with in a serious manner, and this show certainly didn’t disappoint in that regard.
The full review can be found here, but watching these two lost and broken individuals wrestle with their emotions and desires was pretty heavy stuff, and even despite some of the absolutely infuriating decisions made by nearly all of the characters, this show was just what I needed to see. Hopefully we can get more anime that follow this path~
For a show named Gabriel DropOut, you’d think Gabriel would be the star, but for me, it was all about Satania and Raphiel. Their unique relationship is what really made the show worth watching, and there’s nothing quite like a sadistic HanaKana to make things far more interesting. You could probably even ship those two, and in a messed up way, it kinda works.
Even though I may have given this the same score as Urara Meirochou, I’d personally give the slight edge to Urara overall. The angels and demons twist was cool and all, but outside of a couple of minor characters that each have a brief yuri moment, this lags far behind Urara Meirochou in the yuri department. Nevertheless, this was a pretty fun slice of life that helped make the winter anime season a good one for fans of cute girls doing cute things.

After the first episode, I was cautiously optimistic, but I have to admit that I was still expecting this anime to be a bit generic. Luckily, that wasn’t the case, and this turned out to be quite a charming show.
If you’re a fan of cute girls doing cute things, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll like Urara Meirochou, and even better yet, it’s surprisingly strong in the yuri department. Now, the only thing that’s missing is confirmation of another season… . Where else are we supposed to get our fix of gay fortune-tellers?!?!
