It seems you can always count on magical girl anime for some yuri, so enter Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen Asuka, which certainly doesn’t let us down in this regard. It’s dark, it’s violent, and it’s hella gay. But is it any good? Well…
Just when you thought that the winter season was over, along comes YuriReviews with another review. This time, it’s all about cute girls doing magical things, and by that, I mean Endro~!.
Let’s take a minute to look back on a time long, long ago when we actually had some yuri anime to look forward to every week. Okay, so it wasn’t really that long ago, but given how bare the spring anime season is, it feels like it. 😛
My experience of the second season of Kakegurui was somewhat different from Lena’s overview of the anime in her Winter Season 2019 Final Thoughts post. Like the first season, I was absolutely crazy about it. I find season 1 and 2 both equally entertaining and fun to watch. Though admittedly, the awaited yuri moments were of course a let down. The anime opening is just so very misleading, showing suggestive and flirtatious scenes between various highschool girls.

For those who have never seen it, the story revolves entirely around gambling. The main character, Yumeko, transfers to a gambling school and very quickly becomes one of the top players in the game. There are no grades, teachers, or academics- instead one must survive and move up the ‘academic’ ladder through gambling.

The people at this school are just absolutely crazy and many of them with serious disorders and dangerous personalities. Not to mention anything can be used to gamble- not just money but your freedom and livelihood. That is really what makes this anime so interesting and worth watching- you won’t be able to step away from these twisted minds. Continue reading
Just when we were starting to think that Manaria Friends was canceled, out of the shadows it reemerges, and have no fear, because it’s so very gay… 😉
It’s once again that time to check out some anime that are too short to warrant a review of their own, so we’ve bundled them together in order to make our opinions known. Spoiler: This time around, our opinions of these shows are pretty negative… 😛
Recently, we’ve seen beach volleyball, badminton, and horse(girl) racing get the anime treatment, but what other somewhat obscure sports anime is out there for us to review? Table tennis seems like it fits the bill, and luckily, there’s enough yuri subtext in this one to make it worth our time~
