Not all yuri is of the fluffy variety. Sometimes, the yuri you’ll find in anime is of the dark and gloomy variety, which is exactly what we have in Mahou Shoujo Site. Madoka★Magica and other anime have made it work, but this is no Madoka★Magica. Not in the slightest…
First up, if you haven’t already, please check out our List of Yuri Anime Kisses post that we published last week. With your help, we’ve added a lot more kisses, so feel free to check out the additions or help us out with some more suggestions~
As it seems, 2018 continues delivering all the yuri goddess we could ever wish for. Moving on from great yuri anime announcements, as well as the continuous visual novel surprises, here’s the next the next big one that MangaGamer is bringing to the West: Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!!
Here’s some info taken from its official website over at MangaGamer.
It may not have had too much hype, but the second season of one of 2016’s most pleasant surprises, Amanchu!, aired this past spring. In short, it’s another pretty good reason why it’s so nice to be a yuri fan right now~
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.
It’s always great when an anime ends up exceeding your expectations, which is exactly what happened with this one. It’s got the comedy, the characters, and the yuri, so I’m sure that other people must’ve enjoyed it just as much as I did~
We admittedly don’t have much to cover this time, but the things we do have are pretty damn awesome~
So let’s start things off with the first Bloom Into You trailer:
This short trailer might only cover a mere minute, but what this shows us is so much! Not only did they reveal the voice actresses for Touko and Yuu, they also gave us a taste of this gorgeous-looking animation. This sure blew me away.
It’s not just the animation that looks high quality though, the art style in general looks pretty nice, too. The characters don’t just remind me of the Touko and Yuu we know from the manga, they really managed to bring this unique character design and art style of mangaka Nakatani Nio to life.
Okay, before I squeal myself to death, here’s the info about the voice actresses we were able to make out from the trailer.
- Yuuki Takada as Yuu Koita (Elma in Kobayashi-san Chi Maid Dragon)
- Minako Kotobuki as Touko Nanami (Asuka Tanaka in Hibike! Euphonium)
And in case it’s been a while for you since you read the manga or if you’re completely new to it, here’s a short plot summary for you.
It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our Final Thoughts of the spring anime season that just came to an end~
Everything’s better down where it’s wetter. The first season of Amanchu! was a sweet and easygoing anime that was easy to like, and I found this second season to be nearly as enjoyable. Futaba is much better acquainted with the world of diving, yet there’s still a lot for her to learn and experience—both in and out of the water—so it’s a good thing that she has people like Hikari and the rest of the gang there to help her every step of the way~
