Yuri News Update: January 2021

yuri news update january 2021

It’s an all-new year but the same ol’ Yuri News Update that you know and don’t seem to hate too much. 😀

This month’s update seems to be rather small compared to other months, but as always, if we missed any important news (we probably did), feel free to mention it down in the comments. Happy New Year~


bloom into you anthology manga

Since last month’s update, Seven Seas announced that they had licensed the Bloom Into You Anthology manga series, with volume one set to release in September of this year. Seeing all these other creators add their own spin to the series is awesome, and I don’t think it’s something that happens often enough.

Yuu has always loved shoujo manga and awaits the day she gets a love confession that sends her heart aflutter with bubbles and hearts, and yet when a junior high classmate confesses his feelings to her…she feels nothing. Disappointed and confused, Yuu enters high school still unsure how to respond. That’s when Yuu sees the beautiful student council president Nanami turn down a suitor with such maturity that she’s inspired to ask her for help. But when the next person to confess to Yuu is Nanami herself, has her shoujo romance finally begun? Explore this tale like never before in this collection of all-new short manga by various creators!

Seven Seas hasn’t announced when we can expect the second volume of the anthology, but it’s safe to say that it’s a ways off, possibly not even until 2022. Either way, it’s great news that fans of the series have something else to look forward to~

Yuri News Update: December 2020

yuri news update december 2020


wataten watashi ni tenshi ga maiorita anime

First up, it looks like Wataten will be getting a new anime project, at some point in the near future. The first season was a pleasant surprise, so I’m glad that we’ll eventually be seeing more of these characters. As of yet, it’s not known what “new anime project” really means, but we did get a cute new pic to go along with the announcement.

wataten watashi ni tenshi ga maiorita anime

Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but I’m thinking maybe the chibi look could mean that this is only going to be a short-form anime similar to Mini Yuri. That’s okay, I guess, but I’d much rather prefer a proper second season. Either way, the first season was cute and not very offensive—despite the lolicon protagonist—so I’d welcome any new content we can get.

Yuri News Update: November 2020

For the first time in a while, this month’s Yuri News Update doesn’t have a ton of news stories, but some news is better than no news. 😛

As always, if we missed any important news (and we hope we did, since more is always better), feel free to mention it in the comments~

Yuri News Update: October 2020

yuri news update october 2020

The yuri drought is coming to an end, and judging by the stories in this month’s Yuri News Update, the near future actually looks pretty good for yuri-ish anime fans. As always, if we missed any important news stories, let us know in the comments.


adachi to shimamura yuri anime

It’s almost here! The anime adaptation of Adachi to Shimamura begins airing this week, and we recently got these two PVs that are focused on each of our two protagonists. Take a look~

It’s going to be awesome to finally have another pure yuri anime to watch, and it’s even better that this one looks really promising. It’s probably unrealistic to expect this to be on the level of something like Bloom Into You, but it has to be better than Flag Time, right?

Yuri News Update: September 2020

yuri news update september 2020

As we do at the beginning of every month, it’s time to recap what’s been going on in the world of yuri. If we missed something important, feel free to let us know in the comments, but without further ado, let’s get started.


adachi to shimamura yuri anime

First up, we’re just over a month away from the premiere of the anime adaptation of Adachi to Shimamura, and to tide us over until then, a new PV and key visual have been released. The E.T. vibes of the visual are nice, and the PV? It further cements this as a “can’t-miss” anime for yuri fans.

The sweet tone of the PV is something I’ve been missing from all these other anime, and with the yuri drought we’ve been experiencing almost at its end, Adachi to Shimamura should be the most anticipated yuri anime since Bloom Into You. But that’s not all the AdaShima news there is to pass along…

Yuri News Update: August 2020

yuri news update

It’s that time of the month again, time to go over what’s been happening in the world of yuri anime, manga, and visual novels. So sit back, relax, and enjoy August’s Yuri News Update~

And as usual, if we missed anything important, let us know in the comments.


donuts under a crescent moon yuri manga

There are a lot of manga licenses to get to, so let’s start off with one. Thanks to the kind folks at Seven Seas, Doughnuts Under a Crescent Moon will be brought to audiences in North America, with the first volume being released in February 2021. In case you’re not familiar with it, here’s the description.

Uno Hinako throws herself into makeup, fashion, and falling in love, hoping that will make her seem “normal” to the other people at her job. But no matter how hard she tries, she’s a self-doubting mess inside, and her attempts at “normal” romance with men just keep failing. When she starts to think she might be alone forever, a new normal presents itself–in the form of her relationship with Sato Asahi, a level-headed woman who works at her company, which starts as respect until it becomes far more intimate.

While yuri anime fans have to make do with the typical assortment of idols, magical girls, and school girls, yuri manga fans get interesting stories like this, and I’d be lying if I said I’m not jealous. Not every story has to star fifteen-year-olds, so manga fans have it pretty dman good, especially with all these licenses that keep coming down the pike.

Yuri News Update: July 2020

Summer is officially here, and with it comes another Yuri News Update. As has been the case lately, there’s a lot to get to, and as always, if we missed something important, feel free to mention it in the comments~


my next life as a villainess season two

It makes sense to start this Yuri News Update with some good news. From what I hear, perhaps this spring season’s most pleasant surprise has been My Next Life as a Villainess, which you guys have recommended to me on more than one occasion, so it’s great that a second season was announced at the end of this season’s final episode. 2021 is when you can expect the new season to arrive, so next year is already starting to take shape quite nicely.

I actually haven’t started watching the first season yet, but since our Spring Final Thoughts post is planned for next week, I better hurry the hell up! *rushes to finish writing this post*
