It feels like we had a Yuri News Update just yesterday, but here we are again with another installment. Let’s get started~
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~
There’s some more yuri news to cover, so let’s get right to it.
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 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~
Since it’s been a while since our last Yuri News Update, there’s a lot to cover this time around. Let’s get started~
First up, some much-needed good great news in this yuri anime drought we’re suffering from.
Looks like we have another anime adaptation to look forward to, come November. That’s when Flag Time will grace us with its presence in Japanese theaters, a few years after the manga finished its run. The OVA comes courtesy of Tear Studio, and it reunites the director, animation director, and composer of Asagao to Kase-san., so needless to say, it appears this OVA is in good hands.
I think we can all agree that we NEED some more yuri anime this year, so even though November seems far off, this is still very welcome news. This seems like a bit of an odd choice to adapt into an anime—considering what other great stuff is out there—but at least the story is interesting, so my hopes remain pretty high that this will turn out to be one of the yuri anime highlights of the year~
Let’s do another Yuri News quick round. We have yet again a lot to cover, so let’s get right to it!
First up, let’s talk about the big ones! Kogado Studio‘s Nurse Love Syndrome has been released in English, and is now available for purchase. If you’re fast, you can even get it for a 10% discount over on Steam!
For those of you who haven’t heard about the Nurse Love visual novels yet, I’d suggest you start with the predecessor, Nurse Love Addiction, which you can over on Steam.
Nurse Love Syndrome will feature the same universe and, of course, a story filled to the brim with yuri. Here’s some more information.Continue reading →
We got a lot of news to cover again, so let’s get right to it!
Let’s start with what surprised me—and probably a lot more people—the most this month: We’ll get another yuri anime adaptation, and it’s going to be a work that I had almost forgotten about, Fragtime by Sato.
Story: What would you do if you could stop time? Moritani for one is using her unusual ability to stop time for three minutes a day to observe the people around her. One day, she chooses to “observe” class idol Murakami’s panties—only to find herself in a very compromising situation when her classmate turns out to be immune to her power.
This month’s Yuri News Update consists of a second season of a beloved yuri-ish anime, some new visual novel releases, a traveling yuri fair, and more, so let’s get started~
To be honest, 2019 has been a little lackluster for yuri fans so far. Last year was so great that it feels like this year has already been pretty disappointing, and even if that might be true, this next bit of news will surely help make 2019 look a little better.
