I originally wasn’t planning to review this, just because the three or so yuri scenes were brief and were just for laughs, but who am I to turn down content? So since I already watched it, here’s a review anyway. 😛
It feels kind of weird to be writing a review about a single episode, but if any series deserves such a thing, it’s probably Yuru Yuri. Until a fourth season (hopefully) arrives, this is all we have right now (not true, we also have Mini Yuri :P), so let’s just enjoy it, while we can~
The year is almost over (thank goodness), but there’s still more yuri news to report, so let’s begin.
Let’s kick things off with some awesome news. One of the most pleasant yuri surprises in recent years, Shoujo☆Kageki Revue Starlight, will be getting TWO anime films. One is your standard compilation film (which will open in summer 2020), but we can also look forward to a brand-new entry in the series. Check out the short announcement video.
After years of stale music anime, Revue Starlight came along and really shook things up, and to me, it ended up being a lot more entertaining than the likes of Love Live! and The iDOLM@STER. It’ll be interesting to see where the story goes, but if this new movie doesn’t result in a two-on-one Karen and Hikari versus Kirin duel, I’m gonna be pretty upset. 😛
Finally, we’ve reached the end of the road for Ikkitousen. It’s been a long journey, but it’s now over, and I think we should all celebrate. What’s that? You’re saying we shouldn’t be celebrating just yet? Why not? Oh wait. Don’t tell me…
Shortly after Carole & Tuesday was announced, yuri fans got their hopes up that this would be something worth checking out, and while it’s not a yuri anime, the relationship between Carole and Tuesday was definitely one of the driving reasons why this anime was still so enjoyable~
It’s another jam-packed month of stuff to cover, so let’s get started.
Finally, we have some concrete information about the first of the six-movie sequels to Princess Principal. The first film is titled Princess Principal: Crown Handler, and you can check out the short teaser below~
This first film has unfortunately been delayed to April, but regardless, I’m still very hyped about this. What I’m a little less hyped about is having to adjust to a new voice actress for Ange, seeing as the original voice actress, Ayaka Imamura, had to retire last year due to health issues. But seeing as her replacement, Aoi Koga, voiced Kaguya in the awesome Kaguya-sama: Love is War, this is really a non-issue to me.
However, what could be an issue is the change in scriptwriters as well as no mention of one of the studios responsible for the first season’s production, Studio 3Hz. But I think it’s still too early to push the panic button, and Yuki Kajiura is still involved, so I still have high hopes for this series.
