Admittedly, I’ve known about this show since 2018, when the first Adora x Catra images popped up online, even though they weren’t canon yet. At that time, I thought this would simply be a kids show with some room for shipping, like say Frozen or even something like Pretty Cure. As a result, I never actually picked it up.
This year, however, after having watched other “kids shows”, such as Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, I was out of options, but had heard that She-Ra actually turned out to be plenty gay, especially so in its final season. So long story short, I picked it up and I don’t regret it one bit.
The show starts out a little weak. I feared I would have to get through four seasons of mundane kids adventures to get to the good stuff, and while this is not completely wrong, it also couldn’t be further from the truth. The first two or so episodes were a little harder to get through, but I usually have a bit of a problem finding my way into shows, and it takes time for me to actually get to know the characters enough to really get invested.
Today, we’re really putting the “more” into YuriReviews and More. In the 6+ years that this blog has existed, we haven’t really talked that much about fanfiction. I’ll assume everyone who’s visited this blog knows exactly what fanfiction is, so let’s talk a little bit about the subjects of this story instead.
One of the fun things about Kpop is how much shipping goes on in the various fanbases. This is especially prevalent in groups, so regardless of whether we’re talking about a boy band or a girl group, chances are that there are legions of fans that ship some members of the same group together.
After such an awesome year where yuri fans were able to witness major yuri anime adaptations from the likes of Citrus, Bloom Into You, and even Asagao to Kase-san., it’s time to look into the future and see what 2019 has in store for us.
Admittedly, 2018 spoiled us big time, probably not so much with a lot of major visual novel releases, but definitely when it comes to anime. I guess there’s just no way the new year can get anywhere close to that. Still, even now, we already know of quite a few anime releases that we should get excited for in 2019!
Disclaimer: This is a more personal kind of update, so if you’re only here for the yuri, you can skip this post.
Well, despite the little disclaimer up here, I still wanna share with you some small update on the blog as well.
As you know, our big List of Yuri Anime Kisses post keeps getting bigger. We keep improving the list everywhere we can and have added all your suggestions and even more. Every once in a while, if you’re on the hunt for more yuri kisses, you should check how the list grew~
Next up, just a heads up. One of our regular visitors that doesn’t want to be named here has offered some yuri-related items that they would, so to say, donate, to YuriReviews for a small giveaway. We’re still in the planning of how it will all play out, but just know that we’ll have another one ready in a bit.
In other news, I’d like to put up an apology to everyone who has contacted me lately and is still waiting for a reply or had to wait a long time for one.
So sorry about the picture, I just found it funny for some reason 😀
This will be more of an interactive kind of post, and we’d much appreciate if you’d take the time to participate as well. As the title would suggest, this is going to be a post in which we want to get to know you, our readers, a little better.
So far, we’ve mostly just covered who we are and more information about us, but this time, we’d like to focus on you guys.
YuriReviews has developed into a blog where a lot of interaction happens. Mostly between the readers and Jamesy and I, but also among you guys, individually. It’s a really awesome thing to see conversations going on and on and people having a good time talking to each other about the genre we all came to love, but also many more things. There are so many regulars that we’ve come to know and love, and there are also so many new faces showing up every now and then. So we thought, why not create something like a little guest book?
Some of our past quizzes have been pretty tough in terms of the time alotted, so we’ve adjusted the times in those to hopefully make all of the quizzes a tad bit more forgiving. Also, in case you’re new or didn’t catch our older quizzes, you can find them all right here.
After having talked about the highlights as well as all the things that were already announced that we can look forward to in 2018, why not talk about our wishes for this year as well?
So far, we can definitely not complain about the amount of things we already know will hit us this year. However, as greedy as it might sound, there’s always more things the community might want, so today, let’s focus on all the things that might or might not follow or happen as 2018 drags along.
First up, as the Citrus anime is basically right around the corner, especially after the disappointment of last year’s anime adaptation of Netsuzou TRap, what we need right now is a yuri anime that does its job right. One that might finally attract more viewers, actually sells a decent amount of copies, and simply gains enough attention, in a positive way, if I might add.
