Yuri News Update: April 2018 – Part 2

bloom into you anime adaptation

EDIT: It’s official! The Bloom Into You anime will start airing in October

As if us yuri fans haven’t been getting spoiled enough, now comes a rumor that Bloom Into You will also be getting an anime adaptation! At this point, this is still unofficial, but if it turns out to be true, this would just about be the best possible news for yuri fans!

The banner above was originally posted on the website of Dengeki Daioh—which serializes the Bloom Into You manga—and after being posted, it was quickly removed, leaving behind only a 404 error message.

It wouldn’t be the first time that a leak would happen in this manner, but at the same time, I don’t want to get my hopes up too high, since it would be heartbreaking if this doesn’t turn out to be true.

I guess we’ll just have to wait for an official announcement in order to be sure, but the thought of another pure yuri anime is already enough to get excited about… as long as Creators in Pack wouldn’t be the studio in charge. 😛

Going from something unconfirmed to something that’s actually definitive, in celebration of the manga’s 10-year anniversary, Yuru Yuri will be getting yet another OVA~

I’m probably not alone in saying that this is one of my favorite comedy series, so it’s great that it will be making a return in the near future. It’s been over two years since the most recent addition to the franchise, Yuru Yuri San☆Hai!, but who knows, perhaps this will lead to another season being greenlit. *crosses fingers*


uchi no maid ga uzasugiru anime

Moving on, there’s even more yuri-ish anime to look forward to in 2018. This October, Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru! will be hitting the airwaves, and this continues the recent trend of seemingly random yuri manga getting anime adaptations. Happy Sugar Life and Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san were also unexpected, but it’s kinda awesome that these announcements just come out of nowhere these days, isn’t it? Keep ’em coming~

The director of Himouto! Umaru-chan and Gabriel DropOut will be at the helm of this one over at Doga Kobo, and considering that both of those anime were pretty enjoyable, chances are that this should at least be fun.

You can find the first chapter of Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru! over at Dynasty Reader, so take a look, if you want.

  1. Woohoo! I know the news about Bloom is still premature, but can’t help but put on a big ol’ smile while reading that! 😀
    We’ve been waiting for that one to drop since Citrus came out, so will just have to keep hoping with baited breath that the official notice comes out soon! Yay!

  2. I read about BIY on OG’s blog earlier today. I want it to be true so badly I can’t even be objective, but the Internet has broken my heart before with promising rumours that turn out to be BS, so I’m not gonna get too excited until we hear something official from the publisher or an animation studio. Still, if it IS true… I don’t know what I’ll do. Pass out from hyperventilation or something.

  3. I’m not really as big of a fan as I should be for Bloom Into you.
    I still don’t really buy into their relationship.

    Granted I will still watch it because Yuri. And it seems like these days we get an actual yuri anime every season.

    • The anime version always has the chance of presenting things differently, maybe even the whole relationship in general.
      I’m not really hoping for it, since I like what I read so far, but there’s still the possibility of course.

    • Because their not in a relationship to begin with. The premise of the story is about sorting out personal issues and blooming into mutual love.


  4. This is amazing! I’m not the biggest Bloom into You fan, but still, any yuri anime/manga wrecks my heart (in a good way). I’ll patienly wait for more announcements, perhaps one of these days the Yuri goddesses grant us a Girlfriend anime…

    • I’m really not sure about Girlfriends, I mean, I’m of course hoping for it to happen too, but I feel like it’s just been too long.
      Nonetheless, I agree, let’s never stop believing, maybe one day it might come true

  5. Things just keep getting better for us yuri fans! 😀 how many yuri shows does that make this year alone? I feel like I’m losing count of them all now! Bloom into You is a pretty nice series it will be great to see it animated! Now my hopes are VERY high for adaptations of manga like Swap Swap and Bright and Cheery Amnesia! I also hold out hope for more Valkyrie Drive, a second season of Citrus and especially a new Kannazuki no Miko! Yeah I know a new Kannazuki is near impossible but a guy can dream right? 😛

      • I agree Bright and Cheery Amnesia is something truly special! 😀 That has to be animated next! And I am glad to see the Bloom into You anime is official for October! This year was already great for yuri anime but it just got better! On top of that MORE Yuru Yuri?! Please dont stop this ride I never want to get off! 😀

  6. About Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru…

    “Having lost her mother at a young age, Misha Takanashi, a second grader with Russian blood, now lives with her Japanese father. Tsubame Kamoi, formerly a Self‐Defense Force officer, comes to the Takanashi household as a housekeeper. This is a home comedy where Kamoi, a hardcore lolicon, attempts to get near Misha as she tries to fight against her.”

    So, a pedophile trying to get close to a child while said child tries to fight her advances? This supposed to be “fun” and entertaining? Nope-ing the hell away from this one.


  7. It truly is a fantastic year to be a yuri fan! Bloom into You is such a sweet and innocent series! Luckily Creators in Pack aren’t going to touch this adaptation. The animation studio is TROYCA, who produced high budget titles like Aldonoah Zero and RE:Creators.
