Yuri Anime 2021

yuri anime 2021

Just like our Yuri Anime 2013, Yuri Anime 2014, Yuri Anime 2015, Yuri Anime 2016, Yuri Anime 2017, Yuri Anime 2018, Yuri Anime 2019, and Yuri Anime 2020 lists, this one will also feature all the yuri shows that will air in 2021.

This list is still a work in progress and will be updated whenever there are new shows to add. Unlike past years, we won’t assume that certain non-pure yuri anime will have some kind of yuri, even if the series has had some yuri in the past. An example would be the newest season of WIXOSS. It might have some yuri, but it’s not a sure thing, so unless/until it does, it won’t be added to the list. Don’t fret, other upcoming anime that are more likely to include yuri will be included, such as the Revue Starlight movie.

Anyway, if you feel like we missed something, feel free to name your additions down in the comments~

Description: “Starlight” – it’s a distant star, long ago, and in the far future. Two girls, who were struck by the light of the stage in this play, exchanged their destinies. “Two people’s stars, waiting on stage.” To burn out ordinary fun and joy and fulfill our destinies. A destiny to become a blast furnace at just 5 years old… what a danger. Eventually the two will meet again. One continued to stand on the stage of tragedy, the other jumped in, separated, jumped in, rewrote their destinies… and created a new chapter full of light.

No girl was burned and fell from the tower, nor was she imprisoned. Then… what is the end of that new chapter? “Starlight” is a story of an unknown author. Where does the light come from and where does it go? And who is “starring” in this story? I want to see it. Hey — Hanako Aishiro, a third-year student at Seisho Music Academy?

  1. Will there be a year in review for 2020 anime, like the ones in the tab “yuri anime lists” . These are always more useful than the ones looking forward.


  2. Is Wonder Egg officially yuri? I literally knew nothing about this show before watching ep1 and it feels pretty gay, but am I just being (as always) baited?


  3. “ASSAULT LILY MINI ANIME” GREAT NEWS , the game released 20 january also , ill start playing it this week , it looks insanely good.
    Urasekai , sigh , idk what to say , the cgi ruined so much.Princess Principal i still need to see it but that one seems to be fine/watchable at least.


  4. I’m very excited for a lot of the upcoming ones especially the return of Kobayashi-san!!!

    This year so far is promising, it may be slow but I am definitely excited to see what other yuri animes get announced!!!


  5. I’m pretty worried about the Princess Principal movies. 3hz did a great job, and I know that they’re not really involved with this and more importantly, several of the writers (I think including the lead writer) left. So I’m really nervous. Add to that the necessary replacement of Ange’s seiyu, I think this could end up being something of a disappointing mess. Fingers crossed, but I’m not expecting anything as good as the TVA.


    • Yeah, there’s a lot of uncertainty with those. Hopefully the TV anime laid the groundwork for the movies to be successful, from a quality standpoint. I can’t find any kind of scores or rating for the first movie, so all we can do is hope for the best.


  6. So far Otherside Picnic and Vlad love are pretty interesting and best thus far this year. But where is Princess Principal crown handler?? Is it out yet? I cant find it online


    • The first movie has only been released in theaters in Japan so far. Not sure when it’ll become available outside of Japan, but hopefully it’ll be before the second movie opens in Japan, which is supposed to be in the Fall. 😛


  7. Well the anime “I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level” is pretty interesting and I think it is safe to add to the list not only cuz the anime has a all female cast (as for now) but shows some potential for subtext at least.


  8. Hi I think you should consider adding “Blue Reflection Ray” to the list. I watched the first episode and it has potential to be Yuri and it has all-female cast as well. Check it out 🙂


  9. Hi I think you should consider adding “Blue Reflection Ray” to the list. I watched the first episode and it has potential to be Yuri. Also it has female MC so yeah check it out 🙂
