It seems you can always count on magical girl anime for some yuri, so enter Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen Asuka, which certainly doesn’t let us down in this regard. It’s dark, it’s violent, and it’s hella gay. But is it any good? Well…
Just as I updated my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters, I’ll continue with this one that I originally posted many, many years ago.
In this case as well, quite a few things changed, and we have some newcomers as well. Please enjoy, and tell us about your Top 10 in the comments as well~
Admittedly, Cross Ange didn’t end the way we all wanted it to. Hilda didn’t get her much deserved girlfriend, and Ange ended up with Tusk, a male character. In terms of yuri, this couldn’t have gone any more wrong. Though, the yuri we got through the rest of the show probably made up for the horrible outcome, if only a little.
So, basically, the whole show involves some steamy yuri sex scenes, some kisses, and even some true romance, despite the fact that Cross Ange often didn’t depict the yuri taking place as something happening out of the characters’ love for one another. In the end, there were still enough yuri characters left, and if we now add the fact that the whole plot of this show, as well as pretty much all of the important characters, were pretty damn awesome, then this makes for a damn great anime, if you ask me.
Just when you thought that the winter season was over, along comes YuriReviews with another review. This time, it’s all about cute girls doing magical things, and by that, I mean Endro~!.
Let’s take a minute to look back on a time long, long ago when we actually had some yuri anime to look forward to every week. Okay, so it wasn’t really that long ago, but given how bare the spring anime season is, it feels like it. 😛
My experience of the second season of Kakegurui was somewhat different from Lena’s overview of the anime in her Winter Season 2019 Final Thoughts post. Like the first season, I was absolutely crazy about it. I find season 1 and 2 both equally entertaining and fun to watch. Though admittedly, the awaited yuri moments were of course a let down. The anime opening is just so very misleading, showing suggestive and flirtatious scenes between various highschool girls. One can only look forward to seeing how relationships within the anime evolved… but there was nothing more than platonic friendships. The opening is a spectacular tease that will leave you wanting more. =(
For those who have never seen it, the story revolves entirely around gambling. The main character, Yumeko, transfers to a gambling school and very quickly becomes one of the top players in the game. There are no grades, teachers, or academics- instead one must survive and move up the ‘academic’ ladder through gambling. Strange concept to be sure, and I am so surprised at how this storyline drew me in so deep that I could watch the whole season in a day. The people at this school are just absolutely crazy and many of them with serious disorders and dangerous personalities. Not to mention anything can be used to gamble- not just money but your freedom and livelihood. That is really what makes this anime so interesting and worth watching- you won’t be able to step away from these twisted minds. Continue reading
And it continues! This time, let’s update my list of Top 10 Yuri Manga That Should Be Made Into Anime.
There are quite a few changes I had to make from the list I posted years ago. Luckily, I even had to remove some contenders from the list, since they already got an anime adaptation. How nice~
With that said, let’s get right to it. If you want to, leave your Top 10 in the comments below.
Well, it wouldn’t be some random comedy mixed with yuri. This time, it would be a mix between yuri, action, and comedy; I think that’s a pretty nice combination.
Also, I really love this manga because it’s something totally different from what we usually see, and that alone already makes it awesome~
Let’s do another Yuri News quick round. We have yet again a lot to cover, so let’s get right to it!
First up, let’s talk about the big ones! Kogado Studio‘s Nurse Love Syndrome has been released in English, and is now available for purchase. If you’re fast, you can even get it for a 10% discount over on Steam!
For those of you who haven’t heard about the Nurse Love visual novels yet, I’d suggest you start with the predecessor, Nurse Love Addiction, which you can over on Steam.
Nurse Love Syndrome will feature the same universe and, of course, a story filled to the brim with yuri. Here’s some more information. Continue reading
