yuri anime 2019

Just like our Yuri Anime 2013, Yuri Anime 2014, Yuri Anime 2015, Yuri Anime 2016, Yuri Anime 2017, and Yuri Anime 2018 lists, this one will also feature all the yuri-ish anime that will air in 2019. Since it’s not even 2019 yet, this list is still in progress and will be updated whenever there are new shows to add. If you feel like we missed something, feel free to name your additions~

It should be noted that, like every year, there were some shows that ultimately didn’t make it into this year. Anyway, just click on the one of the seasons to jump to that part of the post. 😛

Homare spent her childhood training with her survivalist father all over the world, climbing cliffs, trapping prey, building shelters, and obtaining valuable nutrition from moose testicles. To Homare, surviving on an uninhabited island with a slim chance of rescue is child’s play. The only problem is the other three.

As Homare shamelessly guides her classmates through the finer points of survival, including drinking fish blood and eating cicadas, the girls start to realize that being stranded might not be as bad as they had imagined.

Yuri Rating: 3/10 – There’s a “kiss” and a couple of brief yuri moments, but they only happen to help ensure the girls’ survival.

  1. Magical Girl Spec Ops Asuka is missing from the list. Manga only has 4 volumes translated so far, but it’s definitely yuri, and Makoto Fukami has a decent track record when it comes to yuri. First episode premieres January 11th.


    • Don’t start out the year so negatively 😛
      Though, to be honest, I think you’re right. It will be hard to top what we got last year. On the other hand though, a second season for both Citrus and Bloom Into You is possible.
      Same actually goes for another OVA of Kase-san.

      Liked by 1 person

      • I personally think citrus and bloom into you will not have a season 2 but most likely a OVA with 5-7 episodes each. Just my opinion. Don’t get me wrong I keep wishing for them to have a season 2 each.


  2. You have a slight typo. The title is Fragtime..not Flagtime.

    It’s definitely a 10/10 as far as being yuri and the main pair becoming a couple. Unfortunately allot of great scenes from the manga were cut, but the overall message is still there. I’d give the completed OVA a B to B+, but there’s only so much you can accomplish within an hour.

    Anyway, as of 2020, you can now access the English Sub version. I hope everyone enjoys it.


  3. I’d give Kakegurui Season 2 a 3/10 for yuri.

    The President and her secretary do confess their interest/ love in one another. However, as this anime primarily focuses on the lust like excitement that is experienced when gambling, one could argue the president’s interest in her secretary are merely mirroring the same pleasure she derives in experiencing any unknown.

    Season 2, definitely kicks off with a basic surprise twist that drives the plot of the season. It’s definitely darker than season 1 one, which illuminated individual dark desire pursued through methods of gambling. Though many of the topics in season 2 are only discussed (not necessarily shown), the gambling in this season shines a light on corruptions like :power, control, torture, attempted murder, politics, and human trafficking. The gambling tricks are also more basic this season, so if you have a mind that enjoys puzzles, you won’t find the secrets as challenging to solve (hint: don’t overthink anything, 1/2 the tricks can be accomplished via basic manipulation.)


  4. So based on this selection, Manaria Friends is definitely the anime yuri fans are/were seeking in 2019.

    For the Bad – Though I never played the game, I’ve watched enough video footage (on youtube) to know you’ll probably be a little disappointed if you want the anime to mirror the original game content closely. Additionally, the anime does have few select odd moments that will make some laugh and others cringe a little awkwardly. And sadly most of the episodes are too short.

    For the Good – For the most part, this anime is charming and sweet. The art work is beautiful and the characters definitely share a yuri romance. Though Spoilers…No confirmed kisses. The romance level is more on par with the anime Izzeta the Last Witch…It’s clear as day (and in this anime the characters are even honest about their feelings), but the intimacy is never actually witnessed. That being said; however, I would still give the anime a 8-9/10 and the yuri content a 6-8/10 depending on what fans consider to be real yuri service.
