Yuri News Update: January 2020

First off, Happy New Year to everyone. Hope you’re all doing well, and even though it’s the very first day of the year, we gotta get prepped for what the remaining 364 days have in store for us. As you may have noticed, YR has grown up so much, and we can now say with authority that we are the biggest yuri blog on the planet, literally! 😀

But enough about our good looks, let’s get this year started off right~


adachi to shimamura yuri anime

Finally, we have some concrete info on 2020’s most anticipated (and so far only) pure yuri anime, Adachi to Shimamura. As you can see above, the show got a new visual to gawk at, but we now know which studio is in charge of production. It turns out it’s Tezuka Productions that will be doing the honors.

The studio is best-known for titles such as Black Jack and Astro Boy, but they’re also responsible for more recent anime like Dagashi Kagashi 2, and the studio also co-produced the excellent 2019 adaptation of Dororo. Oh, they’re also responsible for 1991’s Oniisama e…, which we’ll be reviewing in the coming weeks~

But enough talking, watch the PV already!

Oh yeah, that’s the good stuff we need more of. The hype train just picked up a lot of steam with this PV, and because it looks good and is coming from a legitimate studio, every yuri fan should be looking forward to this. We still don’t know when AdaShima will premiere, but it’s safe to say that a lot of people will have that date circled on their calendar.

Yuri News Update: December 2019

It’s the final Yuri News Update of the year (and decade), so, unsurprisingly, most of this month’s stories involve some of what will be taking up our time in 2020. So for the last time in 2019, let’s do this.

Yuri News Update: November 2019

The year is almost over (thank goodness), but there’s still more yuri news to report, so let’s begin.


shoujo kageki revue starlight anime film

Let’s kick things off with some awesome news. One of the most pleasant yuri surprises in recent years, Shoujo☆Kageki Revue Starlight, will be getting TWO anime films. One is your standard compilation film (which will open in summer 2020), but we can also look forward to a brand-new entry in the series. Check out the short announcement video.

After years of stale music anime, Revue Starlight came along and really shook things up, and to me, it ended up being a lot more entertaining than the likes of Love Live! and The iDOLM@STER. It’ll be interesting to see where the story goes, but if this new movie doesn’t result in a two-on-one Karen and Hikari versus Kirin duel, I’m gonna be pretty upset. 😛

Yuri News Update: October 2019

It’s another jam-packed month of stuff to cover, so let’s get started.


princess principal crown handler

Finally, we have some concrete information about the first of the six-movie sequels to Princess Principal. The first film is titled Princess Principal: Crown Handler, and you can check out the short teaser below~

This first film has unfortunately been delayed to April, but regardless, I’m still very hyped about this. What I’m a little less hyped about is having to adjust to a new voice actress for Ange, seeing as the original voice actress, Ayaka Imamura, had to retire last year due to health issues. But seeing as her replacement, Aoi Koga, voiced Kaguya in the awesome Kaguya-sama: Love is War, this is really a non-issue to me.

However, what could be an issue is the change in scriptwriters as well as no mention of one of the studios responsible for the first season’s production, Studio 3Hz. But I think it’s still too early to push the panic button, and Yuki Kajiura is still involved, so I still have high hopes for this series.

Yuri News Update: September 2019

The yuri hype train never stops, and this month’s installment sees a little bit of everything, so come aboard and enjoy the sights~


flag time yuri anime

The November premiere of Flag Time keeps getting closer and closer, and now that we’re just a couple of months away, we finally have a proper trailer to gaze at. Check it out~

Looks pretty promising, huh? The teaser we saw back in June gave us a tiny glimpse of what to expect, so even though this is going to be no more than an hour long, it should still easily be one of the yuri anime highlights of 2019. With how mediocre this year has been for yuri anime fans, this can’t come soon enough, so just give it to us already! 😀

Yuri News Update: August 2019

It feels like we had a Yuri News Update just yesterday, but here we are again with another installment. Let’s get started~


soul drifters yuri manga ratana satis

Right off the bat, let’s start with something to REALLY get excited about. We’ve gotten to know Ratana Satis as the yuri genius behind Pulse, Lily Love, and Lily Love 2 ~Frosty Jewel~, but in case you’ve been wanting even more yuri goodness from her, she’s about to once again deliver the goods.

Soul Drifters is the title of her next work, and here’s a little preview courtesy of the kind folks over at Three Musqueerteers.

Looking good, huh? It seems like this is going to be something in the sci-fi genre, and even though we don’t yet know when to look out for this, yuri fans everywhere should already get excited. Very excited~

Thanks to shade for the heads up.

Yuri News Update: July 2019

There’s some more yuri news to cover, so let’s get right to it.


vlad love anime

Well, this is some potentially interesting news. It was announced that we’ll be getting a new twelve-episode anime in the spring of 2020 from Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii, and he’ll serve as creator and chief director. This is his first directorial gig in over thirty years, and that’s cool and all, but why are we mentioning this on YR again?

Well, you see, the anime was described as a slapstick comedy that’ll revolve around a vampire named Mai and her high school friends. It’s supposed to be a serious take on the girl-meets-girl theme ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), and the story will soley focus on five young girls and have no handsome men. Sounds interesting to me! 😛

vlad love anime

Vlad Love is being brought to us by studios Drive and Production I.G, and who knows if this anime will actually have any yuri, but it definitely sounds like something to keep an eye on~
