With the first season and spin-off under our belts, it’s time to review the second season and finally get this tournament over with. At least, that was my plan, but Saki Zenkoku-hen has its own plans…
Anime spinoffs aren’t a new thing, but for every Toaru Kagaku no Railgun and Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya, you have a Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha ViVid. Something that just fails to recapture the magic of its predecessor. Is Saki Achiga-hen: Episode of Side-A more the former or the latter? Let’s sort it all out~
A series that we’ve yet to get around to covering is Saki, but that ends today. Never before has mahjong been so gay, and with three seasons to get to (including the spin-off, Achiga-hen), there are several ships that set sail, so let’s get things started.
Moving out of your home to a completely new place can be pretty hard, especially if you’re still a high school student who needs to attend a school full of strangers. Unfortunately, Yuzu is not only forced to go to a new school, no, out of all possible schools, she has to attempt a very strict and conservative all-girls school as well. Also her way of “showing off” on the first day of school quickly gets her into trouble with the strict student council president Mei, who easily breaks Yuzu’s stubbornness, gaining her the pole position on Yuzu’s mental hate-list just on their first meeting. And as if things hadn’t been hard enough for her already, just when she returns home, she finds out that the one person that caused the most trouble for her that day is also going to be her new step sister…
The one anime that not only me, but so many of us have all been waiting for has come to an end, and oh damn, what a fun ride this was! But let’s start from the very beginning.
One of 2017’s best anime (or the best, if you listen to Crunchyroll) was Made in Abyss, and if you remember our 2017 Yuri Anime/Manga/Visual Novels Awards, you might recall that this anime was my pick for Best Non-Yuri Anime. Clearly, I think very highly of it, but why exactly is that? Let me explain~
Since all of these shorts are exactly that, short, it doesn’t seem fair to apply our traditional review methods to these, so instead, a simple “Should you watch it?” will be the final verdict. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get to a few shorter anime with yuri undertones (or overtones) that you might’ve missed~
Another week, another seemingly forgotten anime that has some yuri moments. Is it good? Is it bad? Who cares?! It has a yuri kiss! 😛
