Now that we’re firmly settled in to 2018, it’s back to MariMite. With this being the third season and all, is the third time really the charm?
First yuri news update of the year, and it’s looking great so far! Let’s start with anime-related news.
First up, let me show you something to get you all excited about the upcoming yuri anime Tachibanakan Triangle.
It’s not exactly the anime PV that we’re all waiting for, but it does give us a good idea of how this adaptation will sound and feel. Plus, I think this will be the final cast that we’ll hear in the anime version as well. Some great choices if you ask me~
Oh man, guys, where do I even start? I’m still way too happy and excited to even sort out all the things I want to say in my head.
Okay, so as you can probably tell, I LOVED this first episode of Citrus. After having watched the preview a few weeks back, I already knew that the animation was going to be decent, we knew about the awesome choices for the voice actresses, and it all simply looked very promising. Though, I think the PV didn’t even graze the awesomeness of what I found in the first episode, which is great, actually. It set the bar high enough, but left enough room for us to be blown away—and that is exactly what happened. It all exceeded my expectations. Seriously, what a rare thing to happen…
But first things first. The anime follows the happenings of the manga very closely, but unlike what we saw in the adaptation of Netsuzou TRap, it also adds in more, making it unique and far more interesting to follow. This one is not just the manga pages, colored, moving, and with sound. This one is the real deal, if you know what I mean.
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.
Just like our Yuri Anime 2013, Yuri Anime 2014, Yuri Anime 2015, Yuri Anime 2016, and Yuri Anime 2017 lists, this one will also feature all the yuri shows that will air in 2018. Since it’s not even 2018 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~
Let’s start with the highlights of 2017.
The year has admittedly been good, but definitely not the greatest when it comes to yuri anime and manga, at least in my opinion. Focusing on anime, we got some fair amount of shows with yuri subtext, like Kakegurui and the second seasons of New Game! and Love Live! Sunshine!!.
Though, the great highlights were rather shows like Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon, which simply surprised us with the amount of yuri—especially for a show by KyoAni—that seriously blurred the lines between only subtext and straight up yuri content. No one was really expecting that, which definitely makes this one of the greatest highlights of 2017 for me.
The MariMite review train just keeps on going, as this time, we take a look at Maria-sama ga Miteru: Haru~
