Don’t Know What to Read Next? [Part 11]

jg.eNHZG-SuTitle: Miss Angel and Miss Devil
Artist: Maeu Malgeum
Genre: Fantasy, Slice of Life, Yuri
Status: Ongoing – 100+ chapters
Description:

The story of how a certain pair of devils got closer to a certain pair of angel, all set in a universe in which devils and angels both might not exactly show the character traits we all expect them to show. What we can expect though is a story so packed with yuri romance that the whole devil/angel idea might as well only be secondary.

Adorable! All of the four main girls are simply adorable together! I just love their chemistry, that applies to both the long-term relationship couple that just can’t stop constantly flirting and the super slow burn couple “in development” that obviously belong together but just take their sweet time getting there. The only thing that kept my enjoyment in check was the sometimes very poor translation. Often, it’s so bad you don’t even know what’s going on in the story. However, despite that, I highly recommend this lovely piece, because the awesome art is capable of telling the story even without text.

List of Yuri Anime Kisses

list of yuri anime kisses yurireviews

This post has been a long time coming, but we’ve finally done it!

The ultimate symbol of (PG-rated) affection is a kiss, so we wanted to gather as many kisses as we could find and almost make this sort of an encyclopedia for yuri anime kisses. There are certain requirements that each of the kisses has to meet in order to be on the list…

  • The kiss has to be on the lips. None of this kiss on the cheek nonsense.
  • We have to actually see the kiss. Cutting away before it happens just won’t do.
  • We’re leaving out kisses from hentai (for now).
  • Multiple kisses that happen in quick succession will be counted as one.
  • Kisses that occur in the OP or ED don’t count.
  • And that’s all.

Let’s Talk About the Various Roles Food Plays in Yuri [Guest Post by shade]

As suggested in our post about “interactive” blogposts, this specific topic showed up as well. So as the second topic in this new post category, we’re glad to have shade shine some light of wisdom on this interesting topic~


kindred spirits on the roof

So let’s talk about the various roles food plays in yuri. The first thing you probably think of are the standard clichés like making a bento for senpai, or some porridge for a beloved sick one, and, of course, the staple that is Valentine’s Day. But I think when done in a yuri setting, even these formulaic scenes often get a bit more depth and sparkle because they strive to achieve something more than being that of an overused trope.

Yuri Anime Review: Asagao to Kase-san OVA

Asagao-to-Kase-san.-Characters-02After an fortunately not so long wait, it’s finally time for the second big yuri highlight of the year. What started out as a mere rumor, soon developed into a confirmed one-episode-long OVA, and as it turns out, it’s not only that, but rather something close to a short movie even!

To say that finding out about the length of this so called OVA was a pleasant surprise, is an understatement, a big one, actually. I was more thrilled than anything to find out about the actual length of this OVA, and all of a sudden, the fact that this was not a full-fledged anime didn’t seem to bother me that much anymore.

So just about a week ago, the OVA finally aired and presented to us roughly an hour of almost solely pure and unfiltered yuri fluff. What a time to be alive! Continue reading

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. 😉

[Guest Review by shrikes] Visual Novel Review: Wolf Tails

wolf tails yuri visual novel

Title: Wolf Tails
Developer: Razzart Visual
Length: 2 – 6 Hours

Synopsis: Moving far away from civilization, you hoped to live a life of solitude in a snowy cabin. Just as you begin to adapt to your peaceful new life, you discover an intruder; a wolf-girl, alone and shivering in your storeroom. Fearful for her life, you take the girl in for the night, offering her a place to stay until she recovers.
Once she has recovered, however, the wolf-girl shows no sign of leaving. In fact, she seems quite content to move in.
Soon after, yet another wolf-girl shows up, loudly accusing the “Princess” of running away from her duties to the pack. She wants nothing more than to bring the Princess back home with her and restore order – and despite your best wishes, you’re now stuck in the middle of it.


Story: 7/10 & Characters: 8/10

Firstly, perhaps full disclosure is in order: I love kemonomimi and think it’s a crying shame that we don’t see more of that in yuri. Perhaps we should find a way to get Itou Hachi to make his own visual novel…
Also, I’ll try and keep this review spoiler-free.
