Guest Review by Mai88: Kotonoha Amrilato Visual Novel

kotonoha amrilato yuri visual novel

 

Do you speak the language “Juliamo”?

In this guest review, I’ll be talking about the yuri visual novel Kotonoha Amrilato. It’s a game that caught my interest the moment it was announced and has the special title of “The First Japanese Game I’m Playing Completely Through”. Overall, it’s a pure and sweet game with its own fun moments and quirks.

Thank you, YuriReviews, for this opportunity, and thanks a lot, Altair from The Zärtlichkeit du Yuri for proofreading and giving me many pieces of advice!

About this game: This visual novel is only available in Japanese, as of this review, and there’s no sign of a localization yet. It was released on August 25, 2017 (physically), with a digital release on Windows and Android on December 22, 2017. The iOS version is planned for release sometime in 2018.

Seeing how they keep releasing stuff for this, a localization is not impossible. I’ll keep this review as spoiler-free as possible.

First Impression: Citrus

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.

Basically me being all excited for this gem of yuri anime~

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.

Our Wishes for 2018

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.


citrus yuri animeFirst 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.

Our Personal Highlights of 2017 and Things to Look Forward to in 2018

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!!.

kobayashi-san chi no maid dragonThough, 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.

What?! Another News Update in less than a week? Is that possible? Yup, it is, and it seems to be reaccuring thing in our community. Awesome!

So what is it today? More yuri visual novels maybe? Well, that would be awesome but nope, even better! Another yuri anime was announced!

tachibanakan triangle yuri anime

Tachibanakan Triangle, or as it’s called in English, Love to Lie Angle, is a comedy manga by merryhachi, and it will get an anime adaptation in 2018.

This one is actually featured in the Yuri Hime magazine, so we know it’s gonna be good (and actually have some yuri). Though, to be quite honest, I haven’t heard of this one yet, despite the fact that the first few chapters are available to read on the Dynasty Reader. There are actually four volumes out already, and it’s still ongoing.
