This is the second installment in the series where we take a closer look at some anime that are probably too short for “regular” reviews, yet we still want to cover them and make our opinions known. Last time, we took a look at some more obscure offerings, but this time, we’re going a bit more mainstream, including an OVA from a series that yuri fans should be very familiar with~
This ONA was brought to my attention by YR’s favorite low-key BL fan, B-M. Thanks! 😛
And it’s a good thing it was, because this anime needed documentation, and also, it kind of has a tiny bit of yuri. But what did we do to deserve this punishment?! That response alone should be enough to let you know that this anime just wasn’t good…
Continuing our look at what this year has offered us so far, we come to Uma Musume: Pretty Derby (TV), a show about horse girls who compete to be the best horse girl in Japan. Sounds kind of like it shouldn’t be very good, but it’s actually not that bad…
It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the summer anime season that just started~
And since the third season of Shingeki no Kyojin is premiering later than the rest of the shows on this list, our first impressions of that will be added in later.
Wait, what?! So the ones who already read the manga knew what was coming. For others, it might have been a huge shock. I usually love shows with some shock value. Ones that lead you into believing they are something different and then just hit you with what they truly are, like Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica, or in one way or another, Asobi Asobase, too. Now add in some yuri and it should be the perfect combination, right? But somehow, it’s not quite.
As much as I love this type of show as well as age gap, and, of course, yuri, I guess the age difference here might be a bit too big or rather, one of them is simply too young for me to actually get into this and find it okay. On the other hand, from only having watched the first episode and having read about three chapters of the manga, the love shared here might be a little more on the sisterly side, but do correct me if I’m wrong.
All in all, I am surprised of how well the adaptation turned out so far. I might not be the biggest fan of the story, and I might as well not really be there for the yuri in this one, but I’ll definitely stick around to see where the story goes from here.
Not all yuri is of the fluffy variety. Sometimes, the yuri you’ll find in anime is of the dark and gloomy variety, which is exactly what we have in Mahou Shoujo Site. Madoka★Magica and other anime have made it work, but this is no Madoka★Magica. Not in the slightest…
It may not have had too much hype, but the second season of one of 2016’s most pleasant surprises, Amanchu!, aired this past spring. In short, it’s another pretty good reason why it’s so nice to be a yuri fan right now~
This post has been a long time coming, but we’ve finally done it!
The ultimate symbol of (PG-rated) affection is a kiss, so we wanted to gather as many kisses as we could find and almost make this sort of an encyclopedia for yuri anime kisses. There are certain requirements that each of the kisses has to meet in order to be on the list…
- The kiss has to be on the lips. None of this kiss on the cheek nonsense.
- We have to actually see the kiss. Cutting away before it happens just won’t do.
- We’re leaving out kisses from hentai (for now).
- Multiple kisses that happen in quick succession will be counted as one.
- Kisses that occur in the OP or ED don’t count.
- And that’s all.
