It’s barely April, and we have yet another News Update ready, and it’s such a big one even! We seriously never had a year with more awesome yuri news than this one.
Let’s hope it continues that way!
First up, after quite a long wait, we finally got the results for Mangagamer’s annual licensing survey. And who would have guessed, our favorite genre is standing strong again!
The Sono Hanabira series is now in second place, and newcomer Kotonoha Amrilato made it onto the list, too.
All in all, I think we can be quite pleased with the results. But take a look for yourself, and see the full post over at Mangagamer.
For those who haven’t heard about this yet, what it means is simply that chances are very high that we will get some more official translations. Not only for more Sono Hanabira installments, but also possibly for other yuri visual novels~
Next up, let’s talk about the anime adaptation of Happy Sugar Life some more. As it was announced just a week ago, as many of you already know, there will be an adaptation of this work. Many of us were pretty skeptical about this piece of news, but as it turns out, it’s not only some legitimate information, but the anime will already hit us this summer season. That was seriously fast!
But that’s not all, there’s even a trailer already. This still seems surreal, but now I guess there’s absolutely no doubt anymore. Have a look for yourself.
Talking about new yuri(ish) anime adaptations, let’s also not forget about Tachibanakan Triangle, which will premiere in just a few more days~
To get ready for the first episode, here’s the latest PV.
In other news, there’s actually yet again an announcement to make for another yuri(ish) anime adaptation.
This time, I’m talking about Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san, a comedy that focuses on the every day life of living with a “modern-day vampire”.
I haven’t read this one myself yet, but the plot sounds pretty promising already.
High school girl Akari was lost in a forest when when was rescued by a vampire girl named Sophie. Since then, Akari has developed a liking for Sophie, who prefers to be alone.
All in all, I think there’s no doubt that this is a year for us yuri fans to celebrate. Especially in the usually lacking anime department, we’re getting so many new shows to watch that it’s seriously starting to weird me out a little.
Well, I guess I’m a little skeptical when it comes to the adaptation of Happy Sugar Life. Plus, I haven’t read Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san yet, but I have my hopes up that both shows will surprise us in a positive way~
