After finding myself missing and yearning for more of one of my all-time favorite queerbaiting masterpieces, namely Hibike! Euphonium, it was time for yet another piece and more orchestral drama, this time focusing on another set of
lovers characters from the Kitauji High School music club.
Length: 90 Minutes
Genre: Drama, Music, Romance (?), School
Studio: Kyoto Animation
Mizore Yoroizuka and Nozomi Kasaki are two close friends who are part of the Kitauji High School music club. Quiet and reserved Yoroizuka plays the oboe while lively and popular Kasaki plays the flute. The group has decided to play Liz and the Blue Bird, a song inspired on a fairy tale about the relationship between a girl and a bird. The musical piece puts both Mizore and Nozomi on the spotlight due to a solo part by Yoroizuka and forces the two girls to reexamine their friendship.
We’re more or less thrown right into the story without any information given on the characters. Well, we’re supposed to already know them from the anime, and quite frankly, while the new stars of this piece might not have taken the lead a lot in the past, it’s still hard not to recognize these two. Needless to say, a short explanation on these characters would have been welcome, but it definitely wasn’t necessary. Thus, it’s also not so surprising that their dynamic didn’t change in the slightest. Mizore is still as quiet and shy as ever, while Nozomi is bubbly, happy, and friendly with basically everyone, especially so with Mizore.
Lost in the winter shuffle was this amusing little anime about humans and vampires, and while it won’t make anyone forget about the Yuru Yuri‘s of the anime world, it’s actually a pretty decent watch~
When I heard that this anime had a yuri love confession, I knew I had to watch it, but what I didn’t know was how much I’d actually end up liking this show. It’s not the cutest or the most charming anime, but it is still pretty fun.
Uchi no Maid ga Usazugiru! is an extremely yuri-filled anime that is quite hard to forget… even if you may want to…

In order to get some help around the house he hires a maid, Tsubame Kamoi, a former Japanese Air Self-Defense Force Officer. This comedy revolves around Kamoi, a hardcore lolicon who devotes the rest of her life to becoming closer to Misha who constantly tries to fight against Kamoi’s overbearing affection.

I guess I’m a little late again to review this. However, with this one, I believe you might want to take your time to properly indulge, but also digest, what you’ve just watched.
Length: 13 Episodes
Genre: School, Yuri
Story by: Nakatani Nio
All her life, Yuu has wondered about the romance depicted in all the shoujo manga she’s been reading, hoping that one day, she’d experience the same.
After witnessing student council president Touko turning down a confession with such ease and maturity, Yuu can’t help but ask Touko for advice, which leads to the two bonding over the fact that they both have never experienced love before. However, things take a sudden turn, as Touko confesses that she might actually start falling in love with Yuu.
Binbou Shimai Monogatari is another anime that I found while wandering around the yuri clubs of MyAnimeList, and this one involves two sisters, but it’s definitely not Citrus or Candy Boy. It’s something more… forgettable.
Lost in the buzz surrounding the Bee Train girls with guns trilogy was Bakuretsu Tenshi, which has something that the Bee Train trilogy doesn’t have… mecha. Does that make it better? The short answer is no. 😛
