Thanks to this season, I’ve grown almost as tired of this series as you all surely have, but the show must go on, and another review of Ikkitousen is on the docket. Let’s get to it.
In case you didn’t know, we’ve had A LOT of yuri manga recommendations over the years, but when it comes to yuri anime recommendations, not so much. Well, it’s about time we change that~
But us anime fans know that we just don’t have it as good as the manga fans do, so instead of a multi-part series, we thought it might be better to simply break down our recommendations by genre/subgenre in one giant post. I’m guessing the average YR reader will already know about pretty much all of these shows, so I guess you can say that this post is skewed more towards newer yuri fans that have finally seen the light and discovered that yuri is the purest form of love. 😛
Upotte!! is an anime that I tried watching a few years ago, but I eventually dropped it. Now, it’s finally time to take care of some unfinished business, but that doesn’t mean that I suddenly enjoy this show now…
Kiddy Grade and Kiddy GiRL-AND are series that we’ve wanted to cover for a few years now, and we’re just finally starting to get around to it. Especially for the second season, these are supposed to be some yuri-ish anime that should be on everyone’s radar, so was this first season worth the wait? You know I can’t really answer that here, come on now. 😛
It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the 2019 summer anime season that just started~
This anime sounded unique, and oh was it. Basically, this is an anime about a girl wanting to lose weight, so she joins a gym in order to achieve that, but she gets a lot more than she bargained for. The first episode was just over-the-top and absurd, yet I liked it a lot!
Hibiki’s a big eater, so you know this will all be a struggle for her, and that’s where a lot of the comedy comes in. Things get further ratcheted up thanks to a classmate of hers that has also joined the gym, Akemi. On the surface, Akemi seems perfect, but Hibiki is shocked to find that Akemi has a muscle fetish, so the gym is basically heaven for her. Akemi reminds me a lot of Yumeko from Kakegurui, but instead of getting off on gambling, Akemi gets off on muscles. Yeah, she’s pretty great. 😛
Between Hibiki and Akemi, this show already seems to have two really entertaining characters, and despite being a little crude, I think the comedy is really enjoyable as well. Also, this anime is somewhat educational about exercise, but not in a heavy-handed way, and even those scenes remain surprisingly entertaining, thanks to the characters. This show may be kinda dumb, but I think it’s funny, so I’m hoping it can keep this up for the rest of the season~
