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.

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~

I just started reading this one recently, and oh my god, do I love it. I guess I started loving age gap stories, and I am a sucker for full-color works, though, what I love most about this is the couple itself; Tough seductress, Mel and cutie with a tragic past, Lynn. It’s just the best! Seeing them interact, with Lynn just barging into Mel’s personal bubble with everything she does and Mel failing to do anything about it, but still trying to keep her cool… it’s fantastic! Go read it!

Let’s Talk About Citrus and Netsuzou Trap Getting Anime Adaptations

hvi8u2amWith the most recent news of Citrus and Netsuzou Trap both getting anime adaptations next year, I saw a lot of different reactions to this all over the internet, spanning from pure euphoria to disappointment about the choices to just rants.

As you guys know, I love both manga, and I couldn’t be any happier with the choices and simply with the news in general. I guess some people already saw it coming in the case of Citrus, since, for one, it’s the most popular yuri manga out there, plus Saburouta was already looking for a way to make it happen anyway. Still, I gotta say, it came as a big surprise, even more so with the added news that Netsuzou Trap is in the making as well. Continue reading
