Yuri News Update: July 2018

We admittedly don’t have much to cover this time, but the things we do have are pretty damn awesome~

So let’s start things off with the first Bloom Into You trailer:

This short trailer might only cover a mere minute, but what this shows us is so much! Not only did they reveal the voice actresses for Touko and Yuu, they also gave us a taste of this gorgeous-looking animation. This sure blew me away.

It’s not just the animation that looks high quality though, the art style in general looks pretty nice, too. The characters don’t just remind me of the Touko and Yuu we know from the manga, they really managed to bring this unique character design and art style of mangaka Nakatani Nio to life.

Okay, before I squeal myself to death, here’s the info about the voice actresses we were able to make out from the trailer.

And in case it’s been a while for you since you read the manga or if you’re completely new to it, here’s a short plot summary for you.

Yuri News Update: May 2018

There’s a lot to cover in this Yuri News Update, so let’s get started~


bloom into you anime

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard about the amazing news that Bloom Into You is getting an anime adaptation.

Unlike some other recent yuri anime adaptations *cough* Netsuzou TRap & Tachibanakan Triangle *cough*, an anime studio with some respectable titles under its belt will be handling this in TROYCA (Aldnoah.Zero, Re:Creators, and Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru).

When we last checked in, this was a leak that had yet to be confirmed, but it’s now official, and October is when this is set to premiere. If you remember, last year, Bloom Into You won our Yuri Tournament to decide which yuri manga was most deserving of an anime adaptation, so I think it’s safe to say that all of you folks who voted for it are responsible for this. Thanks. 😉

Let’s Talk About Bloom Into You Getting an Anime Adaptation

bloom into you yuri manga

After what seemed to be an accidental leak of the first promotional picture for the announcement of an anime adaptation of Nio Nakatani’s Bloom Into You earlier in the week, we later found out that the news leak was actually genuine and that the adaptation will already hit us in October.

That’s some pretty damn big news if you ask me, which is why I’d like to take a closer look and discuss this news some more.

First up, we don’t know about the length of the adaptation, nor the length of the episodes yet, so we might as well end up with something short, like Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san. Nevertheless, I have a feeling we in fact won’t end up with anything like that and we’ll have a full 12-episode, 25-minutes-per-episode anime adaptation.

Citrus: After the Hype – What Comes Next?

Don’t worry guys, this is not going to be a “Life after Citrus” kind of post. I have to admit that I feel a little lost after the show has ended, seeing that the one anime I’ve been waiting to air for years has come to an end now. But this is supposed to be a different post.

I’d simply like to talk about what comes next after Citrus has ended, or let’s just say after the first (of possibly more) season has come to an end.

I see the Citrus anime as a milestone, and maybe even a turning point for the genre. But let’s approach this from a different point, its source material. I don’t know the numbers, but even—or should I say especially—the manga was, and still is, a fan favorite. We can especially see it in the amount of people showing interest in the work, talking about it, and, of course, also ranting about it. Despite the ranting kind of engagement, Citrus mostly received positive feedback, and some people even began their yuri journey with it.

Our Wishes for 2018

After having talked about the highlights as well as all the things that were already announced that we can look forward to in 2018, why not talk about our wishes for this year as well?

So far, we can definitely not complain about the amount of things we already know will hit us this year. However, as greedy as it might sound, there’s always more things the community might want, so today, let’s focus on all the things that might or might not follow or happen as 2018 drags along.


citrus yuri animeFirst up, as the Citrus anime is basically right around the corner, especially after the disappointment of last year’s anime adaptation of Netsuzou TRap, what we need right now is a yuri anime that does its job right. One that might finally attract more viewers, actually sells a decent amount of copies, and simply gains enough attention, in a positive way, if I might add.
