Since we now all made it safely into the new year, why not take the opportunity to just take a small look at what we might expect to see in the following 12 months?
Well, of course, we have to start with the news that hit us in late 2016 – that being Citrus and Netsuzou Trap both getting anime adaptations. Well, since we didn’t really get any more information other than the fact that those two manga will be made into anime, we can’t really be sure that the adaptations will happen in 2017. In fact, we only know for sure in case of Netsuzou Trap. Though, I think we’ll get some more information on that soon, so let’s now just expect both shows to hit us this year.
Yet again, the year went by in a flash, or at least that’s how it feels to me. And in old YuriReviews fashion, we’ll of course talk about our highlights of this oh so short year, so let’s just get right to it.
I feel like, compared to 2015, 2016 had a noticeably larger amount of yuri content to offer to us, especially when it comes to Visual Novels. FLOWERS, Kindred Spirits on the Roof, and Nurse Love Addiction, just to name some big titles here. But that’s the thing, despite having them and numerous others, it doesn’t just stop there. There are actually even more in the making right now, and that is a situation that has never, ever been there before. Continue reading →
2016 had a lot to offer. Maybe not too many yuri anime, but definitely a lot of other yuri media, such as a ton of yuri visual novels and some really awesome new yuri manga.
So in old YuriReviews fashion, we would like to hand out some awards for who and what we think deserves these awards most this year:
Lena’s Best Yuri Anime: Shuumatsu no Izetta
Well, other than the Valkyrie Drive Specials we can’t really say 2016 offered any other pure yuri show, so I guess we have to work with what we got and make the best of it, right? So, since I didn’t want to go with “only” some specials from a show that aired last year, I decided to go with the show that came closest to what I think is really yuri, which is Izetta: The Last Witch. Despite the fact that she show doesn’t label itself as yuri, nor do the two main characters ever really declare their love, I still feel like it’s pretty obvious that they actually do love each other—romantically, that is. And if they are not yet in a relationship with each other, then I’m freaking sure they will be at some point, since their chemistry was simply over the top amazing, just like the show itself~
This will be a smaller News update only focusing on Sono Hanabira. Nevertheless, it’s some big news~
First of all, let’s start with the one thing many of us have been waiting for for quite a while: A Kiss For The Petals: The New Generation!is available for purchase right now! It just went on sale yesterday, and you can get it for $34.95 right now over at MangaGamer!
Since it’s been a while since we did our last news update, it’s time to catch up on some things!
Starting off, let’s talk a little about Valkyrie Drive, namely Valkyrie Drive Bhikkhuni for PlayStation Vita (PS Vita). It was just released in English by PQube a month ago, but I honestly haven’t heard that much about it since then.
So I had a chance to play the game, despite the fact that I don’t own a PS Vita or the game myself, and I have to say, I was very surprised. It of course featured the ridiculous physics that you would expect from a game like this, but the gameplay, the story and the characters actually really stood out in a very positive way. I’m in fact close to actually buying a PS Vita just so I can play the game as well.
Can’t wait for Tsui Yuri to get translated? Looking for something similar but on Steam of all places? Fear not, for the lovely Razzmatazz, creator of the excellent Starlight Vega has the Nation covered with Love Ribbon.
It seems like there is a lot going on when it comes to our favorite genre right now, which is really nice~
As always, we tried to list the most recent pieces of information for you:
Starting off, how about some news about FLOWERS? As sudden as it might seem, after so much waiting, the Visual Novel just got released in English today! This news is so surprising that I first didn’t even believe it, though it is true, as you can already download the digital Version over at JAST USA.
If you’re waiting for the Steam version, depending on your location you might not be able to download it just yet, but they’ll surely solve the problem in no time. So click hereto download the game/demo on steam whenever it’ll be available in your location.
Next up we have some news that might sound familiar. As already announced a year ago, this time it might really come true, the Comic Yuri Hime will finally be released monthly starting next year. I sure hope it will actually happen this time. Find more Information regarding this by clicking here.
