Let’s Talk About Overwatch

overwatch
We all knew that one day, I would definitely find a reason to dedicate a whole blog post to my new favorite game, and guess what? Today’s the day.

I’ve now been playing the game for over half a year, loving it throughout all this time, though, let me assure you, I won’t waste your time just telling you how much I love it. Instead, why not focus on the yuri aspect with this post?

When it comes to that, I’ve come to compare Overwatch a lot with Love Live!. To make it a little more clear what I’m talking about, let me just say the following: Fandoms of both titles tend to ship the characters a lot – with each other. Of course, there are many other games, as well as shows, where this applies, but these two go way further when it comes to shipping than many others go. It’s not just a few popular pairings, no, you could almost say that pretty much every character get shipped with numerous others, depending on what people enjoy most. You can easily google what I personally would call a weird pairing, like let’s say D.Va x Symmetra, and still get quite a number of fitting results. Same goes for Love Live!, which is exactly why the two feel so similar when it comes to this aspect. Kantai Collection might be another game with a similar, let’s say “shipping system”, though right there, we got many more than 100 different characters, and despite the fact that there are quite a few crack pairings, most of the characters have a set ship girl that they usually get paired up with.

Yuri News Update – January 2017

This will mostly be a short update on some blog-related things, though, there is actually one thing that we definitely should mention before getting there.

FLOWERS-Visual-NovelAs mentioned on Twitter by JAST USA, the next volume of FLOWERS, namely -Le volume sur ete- will be released sometime in 2017. They didn’t specify when, though the mere mention that we’ll get another one in 2017 is already good enough. Find the tweet I’m referring to right here.


In other news, and let’s try to keep it short here, we’ve updated a few posts.

First off, we added quite a few more characters to our list of Yuri Anime Legends. It’s quite big already, but we’ll be sure to keep it up to date to honor all the amazing yuri characters that we think this list should contain. Feel free to check out the additions right here. Continue reading

Anime Winter Season 2017: First Impressions

2017 winter anime

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions on the winter anime season that just started~

Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou-hen
Studio: A-1 Pictures • Genre: Action, Demons, Fantasy, Supernatural

ao no exorcist season 2
I liked the first season, so why not continue and hope for it to pick up right where we left off a few years ago? And that’s exactly what this show did. Well, we could argue about the fact that they should probably have put in a short recap of the first season, since I was kind of lost at some points when they were talking about past events. Though, the show seems to be as fun and entertaining as the last season, so I’ll surely follow this for a while longer~

YuriReviews Survey – Take 3

Another year another survey it seems, huh?

Well, 2016 was rough for YuriReviews, as we had to move from Blogspot to WordPress and pretty much had to start from almost zero again here. Well, we also got our own domain, which is pretty awesome, but it was definitely a rough way to get here.

So with all the changes to the site, partly to the content, and especially to the whole layout, we’d yet again like to give you the opportunity to tell us what you think of YuriReviews, what you like, what you think we could improve, or even what you’d like us to change. In exchange, Rock and I will get a better idea of how to simply make the blog a better place, and hopefully be able to make some adjustments here and there.

I’d also like to use this opportunity to welcome all the new readers we gained over the past year and give you the chance to just let us know what you think. So as always, we’ll start with some general questions on how you like certain aspects of the blog and end things with some room to leave your own thoughts on matters.

Your help would be greatly appreciated~

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.
