As you can tell, we’re not picking up a lot of shows this season. There just isn’t much to choose from for yuri fans (yet again), and I don’t want to force it and watch anime that I know doesn’t interest me. Still, the show must go on, so here are our First Impressions of the few shows that we are beginning to watch~
Battle Athletess Daiundoukai ReSTART!
Studio: Seven • Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, School, Sci-Fi, Sports
It wasn’t that long ago that I reviewed the Battle Athletes OVA from the late nineties. I thought it was meh, but it did deliver some yuri, so of course I’m going to be interested in this revival, even though it has a whole new cast of characters and a mediocre (at best) studio involved. Even though I’ve only seen the original OVA and not the TV anime, the one thing that kept popping into my mind while watching the first episode of ReSTART! was how much I preferred the 90s anime over this.
Is the year already a quarter of the way over? It feels like it’s just begun, but here we are in April, bringing you another Yuri News Update. As is usually the case, if we missed anything important, feel free to mention it down in the comments~
One of the more intriguing anime of the spring season for me is Blue Reflection Ray, even though I’d never even heard of the game until last month. That visual above should explain why I’m interested in this, and now we have not one, but TWO PVs for this anime. Enjoy~
Based on the art and animation, I’m not sure if I’m feeling this or not. The show kicks off this week, so instead of wasting time thinking about it, I’ll just watch it and figure it out as I go. Expect to hear about this show in our First Impressions post (hopefully) next week.
