Yuri News Update – March 2018

The yuri news just keeps coming in droves, so it’s time for yet another Yuri News Update, but we’re not complaining~

First up, the newest PV for Amanchu! Advance—the second season of Amanchu!— has hit, and it’s brought with it the news that the anime will premiere on April 7th. The first season was one of the most pleasant anime of 2016, and from the looks of things, this new season might be every bit as enjoyable. There looks to be some new characters, but as we all know, it’s all about Pikari and Teko. Take a look.

crunchyroll anime awards

Next up, the Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2017 announced their winners, and a few anime that we’ve written about wound up winning big. Made in Abyss won the award for Anime of the Year and Best Score, Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon won for Best Comedy and Best Ending, Girls’ Last Tour won for Best Slice of Life, and Houseki no Kuni (TV) won for Best C.G.I.

Those winners are all deserving, but perhaps the most pleasant surprise was My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness winning for Best Manga!

An expert panel and the fans collaborated to choose the winners, and it’s a huge deal for a yuri manga to even get nominated for such a mainstream award, let alone actually win it. If you had any doubts that yuri is slowly seeping into the mainstream (shame on you! :P), this might help change your mind~

If you’re curious as to what else won, you can check out the rest of the results right here.

Moving on, AnimeJapan 2018 is conducting a poll where visitors can vote for the manga they want to see get an anime adaptation. Unfortunately, the site is in Japanese, but luckily, yuri fans have translated the nominees and figured out that A Kiss and a White Lily is option #16, Happy Sugar Life is option #56, Miss Sunflower is option #58, and Bloom Into You is option #70. You can only vote for one manga, but there’s no rule saying you can only vote once. Now that you know this info, I think you all know what to do… 😛

Voting ends on March 2nd, so hurry up and get out there to make your voices heard. You can vote right here~

Big thanks to @Cosmycc for the heads up~

lonely yuri visual novel

Lastly, it’s been over five years since the English version of Lonely Yuri was released, but it’s finally making it’s way to Steam.

March 6th is the big day, so if you didn’t spend your last penny on Maidens of Michael, why not consider adding it to your Steam library? The price is not yet known, but chances are it won’t differ too much from the $10.08 / €8.19 that it goes for on DLsite.

You can find the Steam store page for Lonely Yuri right here~

  1. Best YUri game 2017 is Honkai impact 3 , and its an offical YUri game, no hints, subtext.. etc.. and one of the best mobile game out there, but i dont see any of u guys mentioned it before?


  2. Great, add another yuri visual novel I have to buy this week! 😀 you know things are going great for yuri when we have two news updates in one week! In a bit of kinda sort of yuri news just a heads up in case some people missed out, on March 29 the movie Ready Player One will be out. It’s full of pop culture references from movies to games to anime. Overwatch yuri icon Tracer will be in the movie apparently in a cameo role hanging out with the Iron Giant, the RX-78-2 Gundam, King Kong, Chuckie, Spartans from Halo, FemShep, Chun-Li and many more! I for one will see it opening weekend! 😀

    On a further side note, I am hoping, really want to try to post a guest review this weekend if thats ok! 🙂

    • Shhhh! You hear that sound? It’s the sound of me squealing in delight.

      What’s that? You don’t hear it? Turns out there’s a good reason for that… 😛

    • New Game is awesome but sadly lacking in actual yuri. Looking for this on DS now…. thanks for the tip, shade! 😀

      Also, from how this was phrased, I feel like if I am one of the first 30 people to order this manga I’ll be eligible for a 12-piece steak knife set absolutely free! But, wait, there’s more! Order today and not only will you receive your manga and steak knife set but we’ll throw in the 8-piece travel-size Tupperware set absolutely free! 😛 (i dunno about anyone else, but I was doing the standard infomercial voice in my head the entire time i was typing that)
