Yuri Tournament: Yuri Manga Most Deserving of an Anime Adaptation – The Participants

yuri anime most deserving of an anime adaptation

Thanks to all of your suggestions, we managed to make a list of 128 participants for this tournament, leaving us with a total of 8 rounds.


As decided by you guys, we’ll add Non-Japanese works as well. I’m personally quite excited to see how they’ll manage to compete against the Japanese ones~

Furthermore, as already mentioned last round, each round will last a week. The first round of polls will start next Sunday, and each end late Saturday, so we’ll always have enough time to prepare the next round for you guys.

This time, the preparation for Round 1 will take quite a long time, so the tournament will start in a week, rather than today already. So this post will only feature the final roster of the tournament.

Please do not make any more suggestions, as we can not add any other manga to the list.

With that said, please check out the list of all participants and prepare your body and soul for the tournament that will follow~

  1. depending on how NTR and Citrus go, I would like to see Bloom in to you and Dear my Teacher, the stories of those two are pretty good and the characters in both are really interesting,

      • For me, the non-Japanese works are wildcards. I voted to include them, because I love Ratana Satis’ works, but I’m unfamiliar with most of them. My (very rough) impression is that most of them are less sentimental than Japanese manga, more Amano Shuninta than Morinaga Milk, but as I tend to prefer confusion over deception and kindness over cruelty, I’d prefer it if I was mistaken.


      • I’m so excited to see how well they’ll do in this one.

        There are so many non-japanese ones that I view as my personal top reads right now, so I really want them to get as far as possible~

        They definitely feel different from the Japanese ones for sure, but it’s a nice kind of refreshing, something I was actually looking for.


      • A pretty good strategy, although I will say I have liked all of the Morinaga Milk and Hakamada Mera titles much more than I would have anticipated had I selected them from the cover art. Also, poor Shinozaki-san! I hope she eventually makes peace with her true nature.

        Speaking of covers, I just noticed the white rectangular pasty added to the cover of My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness. I’m guessing there is a story behind this, but you do not have to share it if its too painful…

  2. There’s too many and they’re all so deserving! I have no idea how to decide between them. I think if they announced an anime for Hoshikawa Ginza 4Chome, Hayate X Blade, Comprehensive Tovarisch, Bloom Into You or Aqua Blue Cinema were in the works I would fall down on my knees and cry.

      • I have several I want to see win. Hoshikawa Ginza District 4, Maka Maka, Kase-san, Gamma, Girl Friends, Hana & Hina After School, Swap Swap, Yuzumori-san, Ayame 14, Hanjuku Joshi, Office Romance, More Than Friends, Futari to Futari, Sisterism, Love/Death, A Bright and Cheery Amnesia. ik its a huge list but there are just so many great yuri manga I want to see made into an anime! if anyone of these win the tournament I will be happy! 😀 Though I will say if Gamma ever did become an anime this would be my reaction: https://youtu.be/lHrj_uGU4Rw

  5. Would seriously love to see an adaptation of WDTFS and Serenade, imagine the drama! Add in The Love Doctor & Fluttering Feelings for the fluff (FF, Ssamba, my heart!!!) But Yagate Kimi Ni Naru is my top Japanese bet followed by any of Takemiya Jin’s work. It would be heaven if they decide to make an adaptation of even any of the ones in your list! 😊
