hino-san no baka yuri manga

 

Title: Hino-san no Baka (Hino-san is Dummy)

Artist: Kinniku Tarou

Genre: 404: Men Not Found, Blushing, Comedy, Delinquent, School girl, Yuri

Status: Ongoing, 12 Chapters

Description: Class president and overall good girl Koguma is concerned that her classmate Hino often skips classes by spending her time behind one of the school buildings. Koguma feels it’s her duty to guide Hino down a better path, even if it means going along with Hino’s unusual requests.

 

I just love the way Hino teases Koguma through misdirection that results in her giving in to Hino’s various requests.  The playfulness of their back and forth conversations leave me laughing at the end, especially when a frantic Koguma finally gives in. In the end, between Koguma’s dedication to looking after Hino, as well as Hino’s ability to pull Koguma along, they are slowly able to close the distance between them. Also, Koguma as a cat is too darn cute! 😀

My Top 10 Yuri Works That Should Be Made Into Anime [Updated]

And it continues! This time, let’s update my list of Top 10 Yuri Manga That Should Be Made Into Anime.

There are quite a few changes I had to make from the list I posted years ago. Luckily, I even had to remove some contenders from the list, since they already got an anime adaptation. How nice~

With that said, let’s get right to it. If you want to, leave your Top 10 in the comments below.


10. LOVE/DEATH by Kuzushiro

Similar to Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san, which is by the same artist, I think LOVE/DEATH would make an even better short anime than the former.

Well, it wouldn’t be some random comedy mixed with yuri. This time, it would be a mix between yuri, action, and comedy; I think that’s a pretty nice combination.

Also, I really love this manga because it’s something totally different from what we usually see, and that alone already makes it awesome~

Yuri Anime / Manga / Visual Novel Awards 2018

2018 yuri anime manga visual novel awards

Just like every year, we’ll of course pick our favorites of what 2018 had in store for us. And just to make it a little more interactive for your guys as well, we’ll let you decide for your winners in these categories in next weeks post, so please look forward to that~

Now, without further ado, here’s our picks for 2018~


Lena’s Best Yuri Anime: Bloom Into You

bloom into you yuri anime

Did you guys expect me to pick Citrus? Actually, I thought so too, but then Bloom Into You just hit so hard that I just have to go with that one instead. I’m still all for cute Yuzu going crazy over stoic, emotionless Mei, but oh man, how can you resist the charms of Touko and her cute ways of showing her love?!

Yeah, Yuu is all fine, but damn. It was definitely Touko—and not to forget Sayaka—who rather made the show for me. And while I might have rooted a little for these two instead of the more obvious couple, the blooming relationship between Touko and Yuu was a pleasure to witness as well. It just felt like a breath of fresh air, something that has never been done before quite like that, and I enjoyed the living hell out of it. So needless to say, I’ll probably re-watch this quite a few times and most likely enjoy it just like the first time. That’s how good this one is~

Honorable Mention: Citrus

Don’t Know What to Read Next? [Part 12]

a love letter from the marching puppyTitle: A Love Letter from the Marching Puppy
Artist: Tamasaki Tama
Genre: Yuri, School Life, Military, Historical
Status: Ongoing – 5 Chapters
Description:

After her parents passed away, Shinobu Indou starts learning as a cadet in a military academy. She arrives to the scene looking pretty ragged and thus gets picked on by one of her senpais, Kagami Fujino. However, as soon as she starts paying more attention to her appearance, Kagami suddenly starts acting very, very different towards her, rather trying to help and get close to Shinobu, instead of picking fights.

This one caught me by surprise. You could say the gorgeous art caught my attention, and the story kept me there. Well, the story and Kagami. Their chemistry is rather odd at first, but during the few instances in which Kagami lets her true feelings slip, you just can’t help but fall in love with them. I can’t wait to see how this continues~

jg.eNHZG-SuTitle: Miss Angel and Miss Devil
Artist: Maeu Malgeum
Genre: Fantasy, Slice of Life, Yuri
Status: Ongoing – 100+ chapters
Description:

The story of how a certain pair of devils got closer to a certain pair of angel, all set in a universe in which devils and angels both might not exactly show the character traits we all expect them to show. What we can expect though is a story so packed with yuri romance that the whole devil/angel idea might as well only be secondary.

Read Online

Adorable! All of the four main girls are simply adorable together! I just love their chemistry, that applies to both the long-term relationship couple that just can’t stop constantly flirting and the super slow burn couple “in development” that obviously belong together but just take their sweet time getting there. The only thing that kept my enjoyment in check was the sometimes very poor translation. Often, it’s so bad you don’t even know what’s going on in the story. However, despite that, I highly recommend this lovely piece, because the awesome art is capable of telling the story even without text.

Yuri News Update – March 2018

The yuri news just keeps coming in droves, so it’s time for yet another Yuri News Update, but we’re not complaining~

First up, the newest PV for Amanchu! Advance—the second season of Amanchu!— has hit, and it’s brought with it the news that the anime will premiere on April 7th. The first season was one of the most pleasant anime of 2016, and from the looks of things, this new season might be every bit as enjoyable. There looks to be some new characters, but as we all know, it’s all about Pikari and Teko. Take a look.

Guest Post – Don’t Know What to Read Next [Part 10] by shade

dallae manhwa
Title: Dallae
Artist: Choonae
Genre: Cats, College Life, Romance
Status: Ongoing, 15 Chapters
Description:

Bo-Eun is quiet and soft spoken in high school. She befriends a stray cat that she names Dallae and shortly aftwards bumps into Saeyeon, who it turns out attends her high school. While watching the smart and sporty Saeyeon from a far, she eventually becomes infatuated with her but is too shy to approach her. Fast forward to college and Bo-Eun discovers that Saeyeon attends a school close by. Still not confident, Bo-Eun confides to Dallae about her desire for Saeyeon and the dreams she has of her. Turns out the cat has an inside track into the goings on of Saeyeon.

I like how minimalistic the art and dialog in this one is. It’s all about looks and glances between the two and lots of blushing. It’s one of those that are roughly drawn, but it communicates so much. It’s a slow burn romance story of the shy Bo-Eun and mysterious Saeyeon, whose slow advances eventually break through to the ever timid Bo-Eun.  I really like this one so far, it’s fluffy and makes you chuckle, too.
