Let’s Talk About Something Different: Part III

Seeing how many posts like this I’ve already written, I guess you could say this is starting to become one of our regular posts. Maybe I should find another title for it then… . Let’s see about that.

Anyway, some time has passed since the last post like this, and I’ve yet again found myself watching and reading some more lesbian stuff, what a surprise. 😛

This time, I will feature TV shows like Supergirl, Wynonna Earp, and, of course, the most recent parts of the The Legend of Korra comic.

Let’s Talk (Some More) About Citrus

citrus

I usually don’t post mid-way impressions of shows, but for Citrus I think I’ll have to make an exception, as I yet again have quite a few things to say.

As you remember from my First Impression of the show, I was literally blown away by how awesome it looked and felt. I pretty much saw it as the perfect adaptation of a manga like this and went into the next episode with my expectations ridiculously high.

Of course, what followed was a bit of disappointment, as episode two, in sharp contrast to what we saw in the first one, was rushed and so fast-paced that I had difficulties following all the events taking place. Too many manga chapters were cramped into this one episode, which made it hard to focus on one thing for longer than a few seconds until the next big event took place. Exactly what I liked about the first episode—namely the addition of scenes that were not in the manga or the focus on specific minor scenes—was completely missing. I would have loved to have seen Yuzu actually think about her actions a bit more, as the anime version should have given us more room for inserting inner thoughts or more depth to complex emotions and intentions in general. But instead, we saw her rush into everything, often having to guess what she’s doing or thinking, which in my eyes is the result of this fast pacing.

Let’s Talk About Yuri Visual Novels [List of Yuri Visual Novels]

* UPDATE *

It’s not the first time we’ve republished this post, but this time, the list has undergone a MASSIVE update. Around 300 more visual novels have been added to the list, giving us nearly 450 visual novels in total~

When it comes to visual novels, my knowledge is pretty limited, since I have just not spent that much time on playing many. Of course, part of the reason why I haven’t done so is the fact that there are simply not that many translated visual novels available that trigger my interest, so my knowledge is almost solely limited to yuri VNs.

In this post, I decided to write about my experiences with yuri visual novels, tell you which ones I liked the most, and also name some yuri titles for you that are either already translated or that are being worked on right now. And finally, I would also like to list just a few of the most interesting looking yuri visual novels that still no translation group has picked up yet.

We plan to regularly update the list, so keep an eye out for more visual novels to be added! If you find a mistake or feel like there are titles that are missing, do let us know.

Please note that by clicking the titles, you’ll get redirected to either the game’s VNDB entry, official website, or in some cases, my own review of the game. Also, the release dates and publishers listed refer to the English translation unless otherwise specified. For some of these VNs, it’d be a stretch to call them yuri visual novels, but they all have some semblance of yuri in them, so you could say that the term still applies.

The visual novels on the list will be broken down into three categories. You can click on which of these you’re looking for and skip ahead to that portion of the list.



First of all, which more or less popular yuri titles have already been fully translated/released?

Interactive Post – How Realistically Does The Yuri Genre Portray Lesbians?

So, as decided by you guys, we ended up with three possible topics:

polldaddy poll results

And as you can already tell from the title, we decided to go with the winner of the poll (and possibly the hardest to actually talk about).

Seeing as I’m a self-proclaimed master in the arts of Yuri, I think we have that part covered up pretty well. I also have the lesbian part down, though I fear that thanks to my still too few experiences (meaning that I’ve only been with one girl so far), I thought it would be best to get some help in that department. So I brought in NotATsun, a professional lesbian (:P), who will hopefully shine some light of wisdom on all the topics that I might simply not have the needed experience in.

We’ll divide this post in three parts:

  • Big Topics – How are lesbians usually depicted in yuri media?
  • Small Topics – Recurring yuri themes
  • What works do we think depict lesbians the most realistically?

Before we start, we want to let you guys decide what you wanna talk about first. I know, the list is quite huge, but all topics just seem super interesting, so we just added them all:

Let’s Talk About OT3’s and Crack Pairings

Inspired by OG’s post about OT3s, I thought, why not talk about it myself? It’s a pretty interesting topic. However, let’s spice things up by adding crack pairings into the mix as well.

Though, first things first; What is an OT3? Well, if you’ve already heard about an OTP, which literally means “one true pairing”, you simply add another person, making it a 3 person relationship.

love live sunshineLove Live! does a great job at providing us with ample material, so let’s go with You x Riko x Chica [Love Live! Sunshine!!] and Kotori x Umi x Honoka [Love Live!] as examples.

As for crack pairings, it’s basically a romantic pairing that doesn’t make much sense, is just absurd, and possibly also just goes against the let’s say more mainstream pairings of the series.

Let’s Talk About the Greatest Year in Yuri Anime History

greatest year in yuri anime history

2009: Obama was sworn in as president, The King of Pop died, and yuri anime had its best year ever. Looking at the current slate of airing anime is usually a depressing affair that involves hoping and praying that a show will have something, anything for us to pin our yuri hopes to. More often than not, that results in disappointment and an early look towards what the next season might bring. But once upon a time, there was no need for any of that. Regardless of the season, there was a little something for every type of yuri fan~
