Coming up just short in our Which Anime Should We Review Next? poll was Strawberry Panic, but when it comes to yuri anime, they don’t get much more legendary than this one, so it had to be what we reviewed next. More than a decade after its premiere, this is still one of the titans of yuri media, so it’s about time we gave it its due~
Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Slice of Life
The story follows Kobayashi’s daily life as an office worker, master of a cute maid, and in one way or another, also mother of dragons. That’s probably the simplest way to describe the story in one sentence, though that is, of course, not even nearly all there is to it, as her cute maid is in fact a dragon herself who came from another world to find shelter. She finds just that by living with Kobayashi, working as her devoted maid, and occasionally attracting more dragons to come her way.
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~
