It feels like we had a Yuri News Update just yesterday, but here we are again with another installment. Let’s get started~


soul drifters yuri manga ratana satis

Right off the bat, let’s start with something to REALLY get excited about. We’ve gotten to know Ratana Satis as the yuri genius behind Pulse, Lily Love, and Lily Love 2 ~Frosty Jewel~, but in case you’ve been wanting even more yuri goodness from her, she’s about to once again deliver the goods.

Soul Drifters is the title of her next work, and here’s a little preview courtesy of the kind folks over at Three Musqueerteers.

Looking good, huh? It seems like this is going to be something in the sci-fi genre, and even though we don’t yet know when to look out for this, yuri fans everywhere should already get excited. Very excited~

Thanks to shade for the heads up.

2018 reader's choice yuri awards

Not too long ago, we gave you OUR choices for the best anime, manga, and visual novels of 2018, but this time, it’s YOUR turn to choose the winners.

Because some of the categories from our list are incredibly hard to narrow down to only a handful of nominees, we’ve left some of those categories out. Also, forgive us if the nominees skew towards anime. 😛


★ BEST YURI ANIME ★

There are other shows like Tachibanakan Triangle that could have been nominated, but let’s be real, everyone knows it’s a three horse race.

Lena’s Best Yuri Anime: Bloom Into You

bloom into you yuri anime

Did you guys expect me to pick Citrus? Actually, I thought so too, but then Bloom Into You just hit so hard that I just have to go with that one instead. I’m still all for cute Yuzu going crazy over stoic, emotionless Mei, but oh man, how can you resist the charms of Touko and her cute ways of showing her love?!

Yeah, Yuu is all fine, but damn. It was definitely Touko—and not to forget Sayaka—who rather made the show for me. And while I might have rooted a little for these two instead of the more obvious couple, the blooming relationship between Touko and Yuu was a pleasure to witness as well. It just felt like a breath of fresh air, something that has never been done before quite like that, and I enjoyed the living hell out of it. So needless to say, I’ll probably re-watch this quite a few times and most likely enjoy it just like the first time. That’s how good this one is~

Honorable Mention: Citrus

Yuri Anime Review: Asagao to Kase-san OVA

Asagao-to-Kase-san.-Characters-02After an fortunately not so long wait, it’s finally time for the second big yuri highlight of the year. What started out as a mere rumor, soon developed into a confirmed one-episode-long OVA, and as it turns out, it’s not only that, but rather something close to a short movie even!

To say that finding out about the length of this so called OVA was a pleasant surprise, is an understatement, a big one, actually. I was more thrilled than anything to find out about the actual length of this OVA, and all of a sudden, the fact that this was not a full-fledged anime didn’t seem to bother me that much anymore.

So just about a week ago, the OVA finally aired and presented to us roughly an hour of almost solely pure and unfiltered yuri fluff. What a time to be alive! Continue reading
