I don’t know about any of you guys, but when I think of feudal Japan, the first thing that comes to mind is how gay some of those warriors were (I’m looking at you, Akechi Mitsuhide). It’s just me who thinks that? Well, that must be due to the fact that Sengoku Otome rewrites ancient Japanese history in a more estrogen-heavy way, and for that, I send my thanks~
Once again, we return with some shorter anime that you might have missed. This time, we’re checking out the precursor to one of the more stylish anime out there, a body swap anime that’s all kinds of bad, and an anime that was The Transporter before The Transporter was The Transporter. 😛
I think it was last year that a tipster hinted that Soukou no Strain would be of interest to me, and lo and behold, here we are with a review. Soukou no Strain does indeed have a little something for us, but is that enough to cover for thirteen episodes worth of hot mecha on mecha action?
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 as I updated my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters, I’ll continue with this one that I originally posted many, many years ago.
In this case as well, quite a few things changed, and we have some newcomers as well. Please enjoy, and tell us about your Top 10 in the comments as well~
Admittedly, Cross Ange didn’t end the way we all wanted it to. Hilda didn’t get her much deserved girlfriend, and Ange ended up with Tusk, a male character. In terms of yuri, this couldn’t have gone any more wrong. Though, the yuri we got through the rest of the show probably made up for the horrible outcome, if only a little.
So, basically, the whole show involves some steamy yuri sex scenes, some kisses, and even some true romance, despite the fact that Cross Ange often didn’t depict the yuri taking place as something happening out of the characters’ love for one another. In the end, there were still enough yuri characters left, and if we now add the fact that the whole plot of this show, as well as pretty much all of the important characters, were pretty damn awesome, then this makes for a damn great anime, if you ask me.
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~!.
