Just when we were starting to think that Manaria Friends was canceled, out of the shadows it reemerges, and have no fear, because it’s so very gay… 😉
As you might remember, not too long ago, we boldly declared 2009 “The Greatest Year in Yuri Anime History“. Well, it only took two years for all that to change. Thanks to some highly anticipated anime adaptations and a ton of anime with yuri subtext, we’re now ready to officially declare 2018 “The New Greatest Year in Yuri Anime History”!
Today, we’re really putting the “more” into YuriReviews and More. In the 6+ years that this blog has existed, we haven’t really talked that much about fanfiction. I’ll assume everyone who’s visited this blog knows exactly what fanfiction is, so let’s talk a little bit about the subjects of this story instead.
One of the fun things about Kpop is how much shipping goes on in the various fanbases. This is especially prevalent in groups, so regardless of whether we’re talking about a boy band or a girl group, chances are that there are legions of fans that ship some members of the same group together.
It’s once again that time to check out some anime that are too short to warrant a review of their own, so we’ve bundled them together in order to make our opinions known. Spoiler: This time around, our opinions of these shows are pretty negative… 😛
Recently, we’ve seen beach volleyball, badminton, and horse(girl) racing get the anime treatment, but what other somewhat obscure sports anime is out there for us to review? Table tennis seems like it fits the bill, and luckily, there’s enough yuri subtext in this one to make it worth our time~
Bee Train (RIP) probably holds a special place in many a yuri fan’s heart, and the reason for that was their propensity for catering to yuri fans with some of their action anime, and wouldn’t ya know it, Murder Princess is another one that gets the same treatment. Well, this ends up being a nice gesture on their behalf, but in many ways, this anime isn’t quite up to the level of the gamed girls with guns trilogy…
We’ve seen anime focused on things like dragons and serpents in recent years, but how about other fantastic demi-creatures like centaurs or mermaids? If you’ve ever wondered what the world would look like if humans evolved into these and other forms, this is the anime for you. Spoiler: It’s actually not that different from the present, in good ways and bad…
