2020 Fall Anime Season: First Impressions

2020 fall anime season

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the 2020 fall anime season that just started~


Adachi to Shimamura
Studio: Tezuka Productions • Genre: Romance, School, Slice of Life, Yuri

adachi to shimamura anime
At last, we finally have another pure yuri anime to watch. I need to mention that I’ve never read the light novels, so this is all coming from someone who’s brand-new to the series. With that out of the way, wasn’t this a good first episode? Things are already really cute, despite Adachi and Shimamura being just friends, though you can sense the romance starting to blossom. I’m actually glad that they aren’t already together, since the lead-up to that is almost always fun to watch. I really enjoyed the narration from Shimamura, since it gave me, an AdaShima noob, valuable insight into her thoughts.

Both Adachi and Shimamura already seem really likable, and the same can be said about the chemistry between Hino and Nagafuji. I’m looking forward to seeing Adachi become a regular member of the group, as well as seeeing more of that little astronaut character. Remembering back two or three years ago when we did have pure yuri anime, I wasn’t a huge fan of those shows that had a lot of melodrama, like Netsuzou TRap or even Citrus. Asagao to Kase-san. was much more my style, and AdaShima feels like it’s going to be a lot closer to that than the other two, so I’m thrilled about that.

This show had more fanservice than I was expecting, even though we’re only talking about legs and thighs. It was nice to see that this anime has good production values, and even though the story is likely just going to be a rather simple and straightforward romance, the first episode was already really effective at setting the mood. To me, episode one was already more enjoyable than the entirety of Flag Time, and I can imagine those thoughts will only be strengthened once the romance really picks up. The wait for yuri anime has been tough, but we might have a really good one on our hands, so tell your friends and tell your neighbors that they really need to be watching this~

Yuri News Update: July 2020

Summer is officially here, and with it comes another Yuri News Update. As has been the case lately, there’s a lot to get to, and as always, if we missed something important, feel free to mention it in the comments~


my next life as a villainess season two

It makes sense to start this Yuri News Update with some good news. From what I hear, perhaps this spring season’s most pleasant surprise has been My Next Life as a Villainess, which you guys have recommended to me on more than one occasion, so it’s great that a second season was announced at the end of this season’s final episode. 2021 is when you can expect the new season to arrive, so next year is already starting to take shape quite nicely.

I actually haven’t started watching the first season yet, but since our Spring Final Thoughts post is planned for next week, I better hurry the hell up! *rushes to finish writing this post*
