It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our Final Thoughts on the winter anime season that just came to an end~
Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon • 9/10
Length: 13 Episodes • Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life
Best show of the whole season? Pretty much! Tohru confirmed as best girl of the whole season? Damn right! Kanna confirmed as the cutest girl of the whole season? Do I even have to ask?!
So in case I didn’t make it clear enough, Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon was an excellent show, with excellent characters and some excellent comedy. It was charming, funny, and had the right amount of subtext to keep the yuri fans interested, yet it didn’t disappoint in this department either, even though it still only stayed as subtext.
All in all, I was very pleased with this little gem, if my rating doesn’t already make it clear enough. Find the full review right here.
Coming on the heels of our latest YuriReviews survey, we thought it would kind of be a cool idea for you guys to determine which anime we’ll be reviewing next here on YR. The ten choices listed in the poll at the bottom of the post include some classic series as well as some newer ones, but I think they’d all make for interesting reviews.
We’ve listed some quick info on the nominees, as well as some
questionable reasons why they should or shouldn’t be chosen. 😛
If what you’d prefer to read about isn’t listed, feel free to name your choice in the comments section~
Anime: Ange Vierge
Length: 12 Episodes
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Magic, School
Why it should be next: It’s the most recent anime on this list. Who needs iconic series when you can have shiny and fancy animation from yesteryear?
Why it shouldn’t be next: Who needs shiny and fancy animation when you can have an iconic series from yuri’s past?
WARNING: REVIEW WILL HAVE SPOILERS
Continuing our trek through the yuri-ish shows that the winter anime season had to offer, we now come across Kuzu no Honkai. For an anime named Scum’s Wish, I have to say that given the actions of the characters involved, that’s a very appropriate title. Let me explain why~
Lost amongst the Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon and Kuzu no Honkai hype from the anime winter season shuffle was Urara Meirochou, which quietly did a lot of things right, but is it enough to stand out in an already crowded genre?
We’ve already reviewed Noir and El Cazador de la Bruja, so only one of Bee Train’s holy trinity of girls with guns anime remains. How does Madlax measure up to its peers? Let’s find out~
If you thought you’d have to wait for another season of Kiniro Mosaic to get your fix of Alice, Aya, Karen, Shino, and Youko, I’m happy to tell you that you’re wrong. Kiniro Mosaic: Pretty Days brings the girls to the big screen, but is it enough to quench the thirst of moe fans the world over?
Even though all three seasons of WIXOSS have already been reviewed here on YuriReviews, we’re still not done with the series. 2016 not only saw another season, it brought us a movie, Selector Destructed WIXOSS. Is it worth an hour-and-a-half of your time? Here’s my take~
