2009: Obama was sworn in as president, The King of Pop died, and yuri anime had its best year ever. Looking at the current slate of airing anime is usually a depressing affair that involves hoping and praying that a show will have something, anything for us to pin our yuri hopes to. More often than not, that results in disappointment and an early look towards what the next season might bring. But once upon a time, there was no need for any of that. Regardless of the season, there was a little something for every type of yuri fan~
There are certain anime scenes that are hard to forget, that simply never fade from your memory, and that you go back to watching every so often. These scenes usually leave you with a nice feeling and make you all excited for more. And these are exactly those anime moments that I’d now like to collect and share with you.
So get ready for the most memorable moments in Yuri Anime history~
Lena has previously reviewed the manga, so this is a stand-alone review of the anime.
After a 10-year hiatus, Fumi Manjoume and family have relocated back to their old hometown. Among the things that Fumi is returning to is the friendship she shared as a child with her best friend, Akira. When Fumi moved away, she and Akira promised to stay in contact with each other. That was a promise that wasn’t kept. A decade later, their parents, who were also old friends, reconnected and Fumi and Akira were reunited. Although they attend different schools, they regularly meet up at the train station in the morning, before going their separate ways. Fumi is involved in a relationship of sorts with her cousin, who unbeknownst to Fumi, is married. After her cousin moves, Fumi is left heartbroken and perhaps even a little jaded. As the new school year starts, Fumi and Akira will make new friends, meet new people, and perhaps the flame of love will ignite yet again. Throughout all of this, the one constant will be the unconditional friendship and support shared between Fumi and Akira.
