Yuri News Update – October 2017

Get ready for a BIIIIIIG news update. And guess what, it’s only about yuri visual novels~


Let’s start right away with what got me most excited this week, Blackberry Honey, Ebi-Hime’s new, NSFW yuri visual novel about maids.

In case you don’t know this one already, here’s the plot summary:

Set in England during the mid-19th century, Blackberry Honey is a tale about maids, music, and unexpected romance.

The story begins when our heroine, Lorina Waugh, is fired from her previous position as a maid in the stately home of Hartwell. With a large family back in Liverpool to support and a string of unsavoury comments circulating about her rather sudden dismissal, Lorina’s search for a new place of employment leads her to Bly.

Forced to work for fourteen hours a day, with little chance to rest, Lorina is bullied by the senior maids and, most embarrassingly of all, by the twelve-year-old daughter of the Lennard family, Lady Constance.

One of the only maids who deigns to speak to Lorina is the mysterious Taohua – but Lorina wishes she wouldn’t. Despite her lowly status, Taohua has her own private bedroom, never goes to church with the rest of the servants, and rarely interacts with anybody. Her aloof, almost cat-like personality, coupled with her peculiar complexion, eyes, and name, have inspired more than a few rumours around the Shropshire countryside that she might be a witch.

Lorina knows she should keep her distance from Taohua, and she wants to most desperately… but maybe there’s a pinch of truth to all the rumours, because she soon finds herself under the older woman’s spell.

The visual novel is available for download right here or over at Steam, and you can currently get it for $12.99 USD. You can also download the NSFW patch over at the official website.


Next up, we have the great news of Nights of Azure 2 being available for purchase right now.

Personally, I’ve only played this game for about half an hour, and I’m admittedly not a big fan of these types of games. However, the yuri in it was what got me excited, and I sure hope that the second one will be just as great in this department!

Anyway, just look at this gorgeous game trailer:

You can buy the game for the PS4, Nintendo Switch, as well as on Steam, though it’s a bit pricey.


Fitting for the current season, we also have a nice Halloween treat waiting for us: yuri visual novel Sakura Halloween.

There is not much to say about this one. It’s short and sweet and maybe a bit weird, but hey, it’s for free, so check it out and download it right here.


Lastly, we have 2 more yuri titles that you can download right now. First up, let’s cover Legends of Talia: Arcadia, a visual novel by Winged Cloud.

Here’s the plot summary:

Arcadia is a legendary knight who’s fought in innumerable battles in the war-torn land of Talia. She’s beloved by the people, despite her relatively young age, and many consider her a goddess among mortals. She fought in the battle of Kadath in her youth, saved Amaranth Village from destruction, and has defeated hundreds of Talia’s enemies with her sword… But there’s one legend about Arcadia nobody speaks of.

More than ten years, a horned dragon attacked Freycross Village. Arcadia happened to be there at the time, and could have saved the lives of the villagers – but she didn’t. The village burnt to the ground, and almost all the villagers perished. Arcadia might be a hero, but those who survived the attack on Freycross Village resent her.

They hate her. They even want her dead.

You can get it over at Steam, and it’s super cheap, so check it out~


Last but not least, we have another title by Winged Cloud, Sakura Gamer.

Plot Summary:

When she was a young girl, Nekohime dreamt of being a video game developer. Now in her early twenties, she’s abandoned that dream to focus on her uninspiring job as a computer repair technician. There’s not enough time in the day to focus on game development – and anyway, isn’t she too old to entertain such unrealistic notions?

That is, until her childhood friend, Clover, introduces her to the seductive Suki.

Suki is determined to turn Nekohime’s dream into a reality and finally develop a game – and she refuses to let Nekohime’s self-doubt stop her. Whether she wants to or not, Nekohime’s pulled into a brand new world, alongside these two bubbly, optimistic girls.

Will they be able to make a hit game together, or will it all be for nought? And, in the end, will Nekohime manage to find true love?

This one is available over at Steam for only $9.99 USD, or get the uncensored Version at Nutaku.

  1. Could you make a list with all Yuri-ish Animes?
    That would be great!

    Da ich hier auf der Seite schon mal deutsch gelesen habe, schreibe ich es nochmal auf Deutsch da mein English nicht soo gut ist, könntet ihr eine Liste, mit allen Yuri-Animes und Animes mit Yuri Anspielungen, machen?

    Das wäre echt großartig

    • Aw Chimeko, you’re such a charmer~
      Though, yeah we loooove the praises, and with we, I mean only myself, because Jamesy is so bad at taking them 😀
      Anyway, we’ll try to make it even better! I for one could start by making my internet connection in my room stable enough to actually be able to log in here every day 😀

      • Doesn’t it just suck when the internet craps out on you? 😛 But glad you were able to make it back! You all deserve the praises for sure. Now that the holiday season is upon us, its time to do some spending, on yuri! Starting with these visual novels! 😀

      • Seems like I need to catch up, huh? Haven’t touched this one in forever. Though, hearing that it came to an end sounds sad… even thought I guess it’s better than getting dragged out for forever 😛

          • So, I finally had a chunk of time over the holidays to read some manga and I finally finished reading Pulse.

            HOLY $#!7.

            Shade-san: “A LOT of drama” maybe a bit of an understatement. It’s like the drama was being delivered to us by an incontinent dump truck driver looking for a bathroom, but in his haste to set the parking brake, accidentally tips 12.5 metric tons of drama onto us. The entire time, I was going: “This will not end well” followed by: “OMG, the author isn’t going to do this to us is she?” and then: “okay, this is REALLY happening. i need a minute to come to terms with this…..” 😛

            You are right that the final chapters are just dripping with cute. I don’t think I would be ashamed to admit that I was squealing like a little girl (I seem to do that a lot….) while reading it. I loved it, as well as the cameo. I’m kinda sad that it’s all over but thankful for the resolution.

            I’m also glad that I didn’t read the final chapters before casting my vote during the finals of the “Yuri Tournament: Yuri Manga Most Deserving of an Anime Adaptation” because that choice would have been even more torturous. 😀

            • Omigosh, you made me laugh so hard! 😀
              And I love how precise you were about the amount of drama (I think 12.5 metric tons equals 1 crap ton).

              Yeah, I was just stunned when I realized she went there, and was so glad I had the rest of the chapters available. I can’t imagine how it was for those following chapter to chapter and having to wait out that resolution. 😦

              I recall squealing a couple of times myself too 😛

            • I gotta say, I just love your descriptions 😀

              Still sooooo far behind, but this year will be different! I’ll finish this one up and then hit you with a review that will most likely end with a rating that is absolutely no surprise to anyone in the whole world 😀
