Yuri Bingo – The Yuri Drinking Game

yuri bingo layout KopieThere are admittedly quite a few of these games around, but what would YuriReviews be without its own, right?

So we decided to put together some tropes we think happen quite a lot in yuri anime, as well as in yuri manga and make a yuri bingo game.

You can now either play this game as a game of bingo, or let’s make things a little more interesting and add “an alcoholic twist” to it~

Hence, you can play this game as a drinking game.

The rules are simple:

Yuri News Update – October 2017

Get ready for a BIIIIIIG news update. And guess what, it’s only about yuri visual novels~

Oayy1E.png

Let’s start right away with what got me most excited this week, Blackberry Honey, Ebi-Hime’s new, NSFW yuri visual novel about maids.

In case you don’t know this one already, here’s the plot summary:

Set in England during the mid-19th century, Blackberry Honey is a tale about maids, music, and unexpected romance.

The story begins when our heroine, Lorina Waugh, is fired from her previous position as a maid in the stately home of Hartwell. With a large family back in Liverpool to support and a string of unsavoury comments circulating about her rather sudden dismissal, Lorina’s search for a new place of employment leads her to Bly.

Forced to work for fourteen hours a day, with little chance to rest, Lorina is bullied by the senior maids and, most embarrassingly of all, by the twelve-year-old daughter of the Lennard family, Lady Constance.

One of the only maids who deigns to speak to Lorina is the mysterious Taohua – but Lorina wishes she wouldn’t. Despite her lowly status, Taohua has her own private bedroom, never goes to church with the rest of the servants, and rarely interacts with anybody. Her aloof, almost cat-like personality, coupled with her peculiar complexion, eyes, and name, have inspired more than a few rumours around the Shropshire countryside that she might be a witch.

Lorina knows she should keep her distance from Taohua, and she wants to most desperately… but maybe there’s a pinch of truth to all the rumours, because she soon finds herself under the older woman’s spell.

Anime Fall Season 2017: First Impressions

2017 fall anime

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the fall anime season that just started~

Konohana Kitan
Studio: Lerche • Genre: Fantasy, Slice of Life, Yuri

konohana kitan
This is easily my favorite show of the season. Cute characters, a relaxing and fun story, and girls with animal ears?! Yes, please! Also, did I mention the yuri undertones in this one?

So yeah, I’m really enjoying Konohana Kitan so far. It’s yet again a show that you wanna watch after a long day of work and just relax while following the girls doing their work at the inn. Also, is it just me or do shows about young girls working at an inn or hotel always come with yuri subtext? I’m not complaining in the slightest thought~

Don’t Know What to Read Next [Part 9]

0021Title: A Secret Just Between You and Me
Artist: Nekomura
Genre: Romance, School Life, Yuri
Description:

Chiaki and Haru share a sweet little secret with each other that they seemingly not yet know how to deal with properly.

Read Online

Yup, shortest description ever, I know. 😛 Though, so far, we’ve only got 2 chapters and yet, this is one of my favorites works right now. Nekomura is already my number one author, and this work just proves that it doesn’t necessarily have to be a KanColle doujin, but she can deliver the yuri goodness even with original characters. Please more!

Anime Summer Season 2017: Final Thoughts

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our Final Thoughts on the summer anime season that just came to an end~


Netsuzou TRap • 3.5/10
Length: 12 Episodes • Genre: Drama, Yuri

netsuzou trap anime
You can read our full review of Netsuzou TRap right here, so there’s no need for me to ramble on and on about how I didn’t like this at all.

At one point in time, I was contemplating picking up the manga, but after watching the anime, needless to say that I now have zero interest in doing so. When Creators in Pack was revealed as the studio in charge of production, I think eyebrows were raised due to their less-than-stellar track record, and things didn’t get any better when the show’s very first PV was revealed, as well as the short-form anime format.

Netsuzou TRap may have turned out to be a dud, but the Citrus adaptation and the Kase-san OVA continue to give up hope that maybe we’ll finally have another good yuri anime come our way in 2018. Whether or not they meet our expectations, I doubt either one of them will be as disappointing as NTR turned out to be.

Interactive Post – How Realistically Does The Yuri Genre Portray Lesbians?

So, as decided by you guys, we ended up with three possible topics:

polldaddy poll results

And as you can already tell from the title, we decided to go with the winner of the poll (and possibly the hardest to actually talk about).

Seeing as I’m a self-proclaimed master in the arts of Yuri, I think we have that part covered up pretty well. I also have the lesbian part down, though I fear that thanks to my still too few experiences (meaning that I’ve only been with one girl so far), I thought it would be best to get some help in that department. So I brought in NotATsun, a professional lesbian (:P), who will hopefully shine some light of wisdom on all the topics that I might simply not have the needed experience in.

We’ll divide this post in three parts:

  • Big Topics – How are lesbians usually depicted in yuri media?
  • Small Topics – Recurring yuri themes
  • What works do we think depict lesbians the most realistically?
