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.

Yet Another Round of Yuri Quizzes

yuri quizzes

It has been a while since we’ve made some new yuri quizzes, so here are several more that you can use to test your yuri knowledge.

Some of our past quizzes have been pretty tough in terms of the time alotted, so we’ve adjusted the times in those to hopefully make all of the quizzes a tad bit more forgiving. Also, in case you’re new or didn’t catch our older quizzes, you can find them all right here.

Anime Review: Little Witch Academia (TV)

little witch academia anime

Year: 2017
Length: 25 Episodes
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Magic, School
Studio: Trigger

Determined to become a witch that enchants peoples hearts and makes them happy with her magic, Atsuko Kagari, enters Luna Nova, the magic academy her big idol Shiny Chariot once attended as well. Impatient to learn more about her idol and how to use magic like Chariot did, she first has to learn the very basics that unfortunately don’t seem to come too easy for her…


I know people will disagree with me, but Little Witch Academia sure feels like the anime version of Harry Potter with a much lighter atmosphere and a full female cast instead. Now, given the fact that I loved Harry Potter, enjoy more easy-going shows, and just grave for this type of all-female casts, I couldn’t help but fall head over heals in love with this anime.

Let’s Talk About Bloom Into You Getting an Anime Adaptation

bloom into you yuri manga

After what seemed to be an accidental leak of the first promotional picture for the announcement of an anime adaptation of Nio Nakatani’s Bloom Into You earlier in the week, we later found out that the news leak was actually genuine and that the adaptation will already hit us in October.

That’s some pretty damn big news if you ask me, which is why I’d like to take a closer look and discuss this news some more.

bloom into you anime adaptation
First up, we don’t know about the length of the adaptation, nor the length of the episodes yet, so we might as well end up with something short, like Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san. Nevertheless, I have a feeling we in fact won’t end up with anything like that and we’ll have a full 12-episode, 25-minutes-per-episode anime adaptation.
