EDIT: It’s official! The Bloom Into You anime will start airing in October
As if us yuri fans haven’t been getting spoiled enough, now comes a rumor that Bloom Into You will also be getting an anime adaptation! At this point, this is still unofficial, but if it turns out to be true, this would just about be the best possible news for yuri fans!
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.
What?! Another News Update in less than a week? Is that possible? Yup, it is, and it seems to be reaccuring thing in our community. Awesome!
So what is it today? More yuri visual novels maybe? Well, that would be awesome but nope, even better! Another yuri anime was announced!
Tachibanakan Triangle, or as it’s called in English, Love to Lie Angle, is a comedy manga by merryhachi, and it will get an anime adaptation in 2018.
This one is actually featured in the Yuri Hime magazine, so we know it’s gonna be good (and actually have some yuri). Though, to be quite honest, I haven’t heard of this one yet, despite the fact that the first few chapters are available to read on the Dynasty Reader. There are actually four volumes out already, and it’s still ongoing.
Ever since it was first announced back in November 2016, details surrounding the Citrus anime adaptation have been few and far between. Back in June, we learned that the seiyuus from the Drama CD would be reprising their roles, and now, the studio, starting date, main staff, and first PV have been revealed!
Set to begin airing in January, Citrus will be helmed by Takeo Takahashi (Spice and Wolf, Rokka no Yuusha, Hinako Note) at studio Passione. The scripts will be overseen by Naoki Hayashi (Flip Flappers, Da Capo 3), and Izuro Ijuuin (Barakamon, Working!!!) will be designing the characters and serving as the chief animation director.
Each of these staff members have done some good work, and after seeing the PV, I think this adaptation is already looking far more promising than Netsuzou TRap ever did. Take a look~
Some of you already anticipated this exact outcome, but for others, this comes as a total surprise. For me, I kinda saw it coming, seeing just how much support this work has gotten from the very beginning. It’s also one of the few ongoing ones that besides Citrus—which for obvious reasons wasn’t featured in this tournament—is definitely one of the most popular ones around right now.
Personally, I had a feeling and the hope it would be this awesome kind of non-Japanese vs Japanese kind of finale, and that was actually how things had already turned out in the past few rounds. I just loved seeing your reactions to so many of the awesome and oh so close “fights” that took place this tournament.
Okay guys, it’s finally there, the big finale of this tournament that we’ve all been waiting for.
Yet again, the last round was brutal and there’s no word more fitting for what happened in these past days of voting. It was a very close match in both cases. Pulse only made it with an advantage of a few votes and it seemed to be a very close match for Bloom Into You as well. In the end, I’m glad to see these two showing up as the remaining competitors for the
iron, uh I mean yuri throne, making this the Japanese vs non-Japanese finale that a lot of us has been waiting for.
Here’s to the last week of voting! Have fun, and let the most deserving manga/comic win~
I gotta admit, seeing Girl Friends getting kicked out by Pulse is very surprising, to say the least, but that’s what makes this tournament so interesting! Now it’s a clean 2 vs 2, Japanese vs non-Japanese works. How exciting is that, and who would have thought the non-Japanese works would make it so far?! Just imagine if we got a finale with only Ratana Satis’ works…
It definitely stays interesting! As always, enjoy voting!
