Guest Review – Yuri Visual Novel: Sisterly Bliss by Rokaria


Spoiler Warning!


So, for my first guest review, I’ll review a title that has been mentioned on the site before and has been on my radar ever since. Sisterly Bliss -Don’t let mom find out- is its full title, but I’ll be referring to it as Sisterly Bliss to save keystrokes. I will try and keep this review as spoiler-free as possible, but I will talk about a couple of the endings, so take that into account before reading.

Art

Let’s start with the most standout thing for me. The artwork here isn’t as detailed as some other visual novels, but Sisterly Bliss uses this to its advantage. It certainly looks unique amongst the sea of other visual novels. This limited art style allows for flexibility and allows its characters to express a wide array of emotions and expressions—some not entirely pleasant—without breaking any immersion. The simplistic style allows for some incredibly beautiful CGs. Entirely though use of shading, a scene can be as detailed or simple as the artists want it to be.

A wonderfully delicious breakfast.

The art style also contributes to a few choice scenes to make them more… creepy. There is some rather disturbing imagery down some of the routes, and the art enhances the intended feel of these scenes.

Yuri News Update: September 2018 – Part II

Content warning – NSFW images ahead!


Surprisingly, even after the huge news post from only a week ago, there’s more to cover~

tsui yuri.JPGFirst of all, just a few days ago, eyephon‘s yuri visual novel Sisterly Bliss ~Don’t Let Mom Find Out~ has been released and is available for download over at MangaGamer. It’s currently up for $24.95.

In the rare case that you haven’t heard of it yet, have some more information.


Also known as: Tsui Yuri
Length: 2 – 10 Hours
Genre: Incest, NSFW, Romance, Yuri

Plot summary:

Ichika and Futaba are so close it even surprises their friends and family at times. Ichika, the diligent, stubborn older twin, and Futaba, the childish, sociable younger twin, are an inseparable pair.

But there’s more to their love for each other than first meets the eye.

Growing up, the two did everything together. No matter where they went, the twins were never apart. And even now that they’ve grown up, their personalities diverging and leading them to different hobbies, they’re still as close as can be. For Ichika, the responsible big sister, looking out for childish, spoiled Futaba has become an everyday occurance, both at home and at school.

But one day, worried that the twins are growing too close, their mother chastises them, explaining that there’s a difference between being supportive of each other and being codependent. Regardless of how close they are, she says, they can’t stay together forever. With that admonition, the twins’ relationship begins to change.

Lurking beneath Ichika’s wish to see Futaba happy is a different feeling, one that torments her. A desire that cannot be fulfilled. And as their relationship changes, Futaba grows restless, seeing her wish to always be by Ichika’s side drifting further and further away.

What awaits these twins, who harbor feelings stronger than mere sisterly love? What form will their relationship take, and what conclusion will their story reach?

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. 😉
