My Top 10 Favorite Yuri Pairings [Updated]

Can you believe it? It’s been 2 years since I last updated this list?! Surely, a lot has changed in these 2 years, so it’s about time to add some new pairings to the list and update my thoughts on the ones that have been in there for years already~

shuumatsu no izetta yuri10. Finé x Izetta (Shuumatsu no Izetta)

Finé is already one of my favorite anime characters of 2016, while Izetta probably made it to my top 3 cutest anime characters of all-time. So even without pairing them up with each other, I’m absolutely in love with both of them. However, if you now ship them with each other, what emerges from this simple equation of Finé + Izetta, is simply heavenly.

Those two compliment each other wonderfully, with strong and badass Finé handling her beloved and oh so loyal Izetta with the utmost care.

Their scenes together are some of the most enjoyable moments in anime history, and it makes me wonder just why in the world there hasn’t been more fan art and doujinshi about them. It’s something that I really can’t understand, as to me, they seem like the perfect match~

Yuri News Update: February 2017

It’s not even been 2 full months into the new year and there are already so many more yuri Visual Novels popping up from basically nowhere.

nenokamiThough, before we get to the new or future releases, let’s first talk about Ne no Kami. In this case, there has not only been a huge translation update for Part 1 that has just been released, but right here, you’ll also find some art previews for Part 2. So how about you get even more excited for the second part that will be released pretty soon?

In other big news, we’ve been given the opportunity to interview Ne no Kami‘s writer and developer Fenrir Vier. Right now, we’re collecting possible questions and we need your help. So if you’re interested in anything regarding Fenrir, Ne no Kami or any other of their works, feel free to leave your question in the comment section~

What to Expect in 2017

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?

citrus netsuzuo trap animeWell, 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.

Our Personal Highlights of 2016

2016 yuri highlights

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

Anime Review: Shuumatsu no Izetta

shuumatsu no izetta

Year: 2016
Episodes: 12
Genre: Fantasy, Historical, War

The story takes place on an alternate Earth, focusing on a time of war, similar to the events of World War II. We follow the story of 16-year-old Finé, crown princess of Eylstadt, a small alpine principality, on her struggle to keep her beloved country safe from Germania. Fortunately, she has long ago gained a powerful friend, Izetta, who is said to be the last witch on Earth and who is willing to give up everything to protect what’s most important to her princess, Finé.

This was THE show for me to watch this season, featuring everything that I long for in a show, badass female protagonists, gorgeous art, a compelling story, and of course, a high possibility for yuri content.

I had only hyped myself with the trailer before I started watching this, so despite the fact that I expected the just listed aspects to hit me, I didn’t know any more about this show, and that’s a good thing, because it left enough room for this show to completely blow me away.

Link to the fanfiction

Doesn’t this one just sound super simple, yet super awesome? It implies that there is some cuddling happening, which is always a plus, but the author added in way, way more.

Not only do we see the oh-so-slow love story between the two love birds unfolding, no, the story is also stuffed with just the right kind of Pharmercy moments to just melt your heart~
