Yuri News Update: May 2018

There’s a lot to cover in this Yuri News Update, so let’s get started~


bloom into you anime

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard about the amazing news that Bloom Into You is getting an anime adaptation.

Unlike some other recent yuri anime adaptations *cough* Netsuzou TRap & Tachibanakan Triangle *cough*, an anime studio with some respectable titles under its belt will be handling this in TROYCA (Aldnoah.Zero, Re:Creators, and Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru).

When we last checked in, this was a leak that had yet to be confirmed, but it’s now official, and October is when this is set to premiere. If you remember, last year, Bloom Into You won our Yuri Tournament to decide which yuri manga was most deserving of an anime adaptation, so I think it’s safe to say that all of you folks who voted for it are responsible for this. Thanks. ūüėČ

After what seemed to be an accidental leak of the first promotional picture for the announcement of an anime adaptation of Nio Nakatani’s Bloom Into You earlier in the week, we later found out that the news leak was actually genuine and that the adaptation will already hit us in October.

That’s some pretty damn big news if you ask me, which is why I’d like to take a closer look and discuss this news some more.

First up, we don’t know about the length of the adaptation, nor the length of the episodes yet, so we might as well end up with something short, like Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san. Nevertheless, I have a feeling we in fact won’t end up with anything like that and we’ll have a full 12-episode, 25-minutes-per-episode anime adaptation.

It’s barely April, and we have yet another News Update ready, and it’s such a big one even! We seriously never had a year with more awesome yuri news than this one.

Let’s hope it continues that way!

mangagamer 2018 visual novel licensing surveyFirst up, after quite a long wait, we finally got the results for Mangagamer’s annual licensing survey. And who would have guessed, our favorite genre is standing strong again!

The Sono Hanabira series is now in second place, and newcomer Kotonoha Amrilato made it onto the list, too.

All in all, I think we can be quite pleased with the results. But take a look for yourself, and see the full post over at Mangagamer.

For those who haven’t heard about this yet, what it means is simply that chances are very high that we will get some more official translations. Not only for more Sono Hanabira installments, but also possibly for other yuri visual novels~
