A series that we’ve yet to get around to covering is Saki, but that ends today. Never before has mahjong been so gay, and with three seasons to get to (including the spin-off, Achiga-hen), there are several ships that set sail, so let’s get things started.
Moving out of your home to a completely new place can be pretty hard, especially if you’re still a high school student who needs to attend a school full of strangers. Unfortunately, Yuzu is not only forced to go to a new school, no, out of all possible schools, she has to attempt a very strict and conservative all-girls school as well. Also her way of “showing off” on the first day of school quickly gets her into trouble with the strict student council president Mei, who easily breaks Yuzu’s stubbornness, gaining her the pole position on Yuzu’s mental hate-list just on their first meeting. And as if things hadn’t been hard enough for her already, just when she returns home, she finds out that the one person that caused the most trouble for her that day is also going to be her new step sister…
The one anime that not only me, but so many of us have all been waiting for has come to an end, and oh damn, what a fun ride this was! But let’s start from the very beginning.
One of 2017’s best anime (or the best, if you listen to Crunchyroll) was Made in Abyss, and if you remember our 2017 Yuri Anime/Manga/Visual Novels Awards, you might recall that this anime was my pick for Best Non-Yuri Anime. Clearly, I think very highly of it, but why exactly is that? Let me explain~
Let’s keep it simple. This is a story about a player finding true love:
Mel, a renowned heart surgeon who’s not only known for her skills to fix hearts, but mostly for her skill to break them, has been living a carefree life up until the point the story starts out. She’s pretty popular in the hospital she’s working at, especially with her female colleagues, and proves her reputation as a player to be true whenever she feels like it.
However, things are about to change when someone new steps into her life. Someone she didn’t even regard as a possible love interest, but simply a little girl with a big mouth. To her distress, this girl, Lynn, seems to take a liking to her, invading her personal bubble more and more as time goes on.
Not only did they reveal five more cast members of the Kase-san OVA, they also announced that there will not only be the one episode coming out, but also a 18-minute drama CD.
As for the cast members:
- Ibuki Kido as Mikawa
- Minako Kotobuki as Inoue-senpai
- Masumi Asano as Sensei
- Yumi Uchiyama as Coach
- Fukushi Ochiai as (not announced yet)
Also, a new PV has just been released, and it’s gotten me even more hyped! Check it out~
With the addition of the upcoming drama CD, I guess this means we can look forward to even more Kase-san in just a few more months~
Since all of these shorts are exactly that, short, it doesn’t seem fair to apply our traditional review methods to these, so instead, a simple “Should you watch it?” will be the final verdict. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get to a few shorter anime with yuri undertones (or overtones) that you might’ve missed~
