Yuri Awards: Best of the Decade

yuri awards best of the decade


*** SPOILER WARNING ***


Because it’s the end of the decade, we thought we had to have it go out in style by creating a star-studded award ceremony celebrating yuri’s best and brightest. If I wasn’t allergic to manga and visual novels (:P), this post would be even bigger, but as it is, there are over 30 awards up for grabs, so take a seat as we do our best Oprah impersonation and just hand out the honors.

Oh, and because it’s a super special occasion, there are also a few non-yuri awards handed out, but enough talking! Let’s get started~

Let’s Talk About the New Greatest Year in Yuri Anime History

2018 yuri anime

As you might remember, not too long ago, we boldly declared 2009 “The Greatest Year in Yuri Anime History“. Well, it only took two years for all that to change. Thanks to some highly anticipated anime adaptations and a ton of anime with yuri subtext, we’re now ready to officially declare 2018 “The New Greatest Year in Yuri Anime History”!

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our Final Thoughts of the spring anime season that just came to an end~


Amanchu! Advance • 7.5/10
Length: 12 Episodes • Genre: Comedy, School, Slice of Life

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~

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


Tachibanakan Triangle
Studio: Creators in Pack / Studio Lings • Genre: Comedy, Ecchi, Yuri

Uh… hm, what to say about this one. I guess let’s start with the obvious; Many of us were probably surprised when, after about 3 minutes, the episode just ended without any warning. I guess surprised is just a small part of what we really felt, and disappointment might as well be the better word to use here.

Well, since the episodes are so short, I don’t yet have that much to say. The ecchi level is quite high, and we can already expect there to be quite a lot of yuri, too. The quality, on the other hand, ranges from moments like “This looks nice!” to “Uh, wow, low-budget, huh?”.

I can’t really say any more, since I think given the length of the episodes that already aired, we just didn’t have the time to properly get to know the characters yet.

The yuri news just keeps coming in droves, so it’s time for yet another Yuri News Update, but we’re not complaining~

First up, the newest PV for Amanchu! Advance—the second season of Amanchu!— has hit, and it’s brought with it the news that the anime will premiere on April 7th. The first season was one of the most pleasant anime of 2016, and from the looks of things, this new season might be every bit as enjoyable. There looks to be some new characters, but as we all know, it’s all about Pikari and Teko. Take a look.
