My Top 10 Yuri Anime [Updated]

Spoiler Warning!

 

Just as I updated my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters, I’ll continue with this one that I originally posted many, many years ago.

In this case as well, quite a few things changed, and we have some newcomers as well. Please enjoy, and tell us about your Top 10 in the comments as well~

10. Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo

Admittedly, Cross Ange didn’t end the way we all wanted it to. Hilda didn’t get her much deserved girlfriend, and Ange ended up with Tusk, a male character. In terms of yuri, this couldn’t have gone any more wrong. Though, the yuri we got through the rest of the show probably made up for the horrible outcome, if only a little.

So, basically, the whole show involves some steamy yuri sex scenes, some kisses, and even some true romance, despite the fact that Cross Ange often didn’t depict the yuri taking place as something happening out of the characters’ love for one another. In the end, there were still enough yuri characters left, and if we now add the fact that the whole plot of this show, as well as pretty much all of the important characters, were pretty damn awesome, then this makes for a damn great anime, if you ask me.

My Top 10 Yuri Works That Should Be Made Into Anime [Updated]

And it continues! This time, let’s update my list of Top 10 Yuri Manga That Should Be Made Into Anime.

There are quite a few changes I had to make from the list I posted years ago. Luckily, I even had to remove some contenders from the list, since they already got an anime adaptation. How nice~

With that said, let’s get right to it. If you want to, leave your Top 10 in the comments below.


10. LOVE/DEATH by Kuzushiro

Similar to Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san, which is by the same artist, I think LOVE/DEATH would make an even better short anime than the former.

Well, it wouldn’t be some random comedy mixed with yuri. This time, it would be a mix between yuri, action, and comedy; I think that’s a pretty nice combination.

Also, I really love this manga because it’s something totally different from what we usually see, and that alone already makes it awesome~

Yuri News Update: March 2019 – Part II

We got a lot of news to cover again, so let’s get right to it!

fragtime yuri anime adaptation
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.

Anime Review: Bloom Into You

Spoiler Warning!

I guess I’m a little late again to review this. However, with this one, I believe you might want to take your time to properly indulge, but also digest, what you’ve just watched.


Year: 2018
Length: 13 Episodes
Genre: School, Yuri
Studio: TROYCA
Story by: Nakatani Nio

All her life, Yuu has wondered about the romance depicted in all the shoujo manga she’s been reading, hoping that one day, she’d experience the same.

After witnessing student council president Touko turning down a confession with such ease and maturity, Yuu can’t help but ask Touko for advice, which leads to the two bonding over the fact that they both have never experienced love before. However, things take a sudden turn, as Touko confesses that she might actually start falling in love with Yuu.

Anime Fall Season 2018: Final Thoughts

anime fall season 2018 final thoughts

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our Final Thoughts of the 2018 fall anime season that just came to an end~


Bloom Into You • 9.5/10
Length: 13 Episodes • Genre: School, Yuri

bloom into you
Now, as the last of what I like to call the Big Three (namely Citrus, Asagao to Kase-san., and Bloom Into You) has come to an end, I first just want to state how very satisfied I am with what 2018 offered to us yuri fans. It’s quite hard to tell which of the Big Three was best, seeing that they all depicted the yuri in very different ways, but what I can say for sure is that the community made it very vocal that we liked all three.

Now Bloom Into You—as the last to come to an end—has a very special place in my heart for not only bringing the content of its manga onto the big screen, but also for delivering so much more. It’s hard to put into words what this adaptation did to me and probably the majority of the community. In short, it was some top-notch adaptation that I simply couldn’t be happier with.

Well, my review will soon follow, of course, but please be a little patient. During this time of the year, we have quite a lot of posts scheduled.

Yuri Anime 2019

yuri anime 2019

Just like our Yuri Anime 2013, Yuri Anime 2014, Yuri Anime 2015, Yuri Anime 2016, Yuri Anime 2017, and Yuri Anime 2018 lists, this one will also feature all the yuri shows that will air in 2019. Since it’s not even 2019 yet, this list is still in progress and will be updated whenever there are new shows to add. If you feel like we missed something, feel free to name your additions~

It should be noted that neither of the Sailor Moon movies have definite release dates, so it’s more of an assumption that they’ll release this year, but we felt like including them anyway. And it’s probably wishful thinking to trust that Hibike Euphonium! won’t totally abandon any and all subtext, but let’s go into this with some optimism! 😛

What to Look Forward to in 2019

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!
