My Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters [Updated]

Oh man, it’s been a while since I made one of these. Well, instead of posting an all-new Top 10 list, I thought about updating all my existing ones, starting with my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters.

As it turns out, quite a few of my picks from years ago still stay in my Top 10. However, there are quite a few newcomers as well.

I hope you enjoy~

If you feel like it, leave your Top 10 to discuss in the comments~


10. Shizuma Hanazono (Strawberry Panic)

The award for the hottest lady-killer definitely goes to Shizuma. And even though I absolutely can’t stand people who play with the feelings of others, I can’t really get myself to dislike her. Also, it’s thanks to her that we got to see so many yuri kisses, or at least all these great moments in which kisses almost happened.

2018 Reader’s Choice Awards

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.

Yuri News Update: December 2018 – Part II

Another News Update so soon?! That’s right! As has been the case lately, there’s a lot of news to sort through once again, so let’s get started~


citrus+ yuri manga

First up, those of you who’ve been depressed since the completion of Saburouta’s Citrus manga can finally turn those frowns upside down, as Citrus+ launched yesterday in the newest issue of Yuri Hime.

In entertainment, sequels/spin-offs are rarely as good as their parent story, but even if this doesn’t end up being quite as entertaining as the original, it’s still more Yuzu and Mei, so no need to complain. Besides, who needs Santa when we have Saburouta giving us such a nice present this holiday season?!

Yuri Anime / Manga / Visual Novel Awards 2018

2018 yuri anime manga visual novel awards

Just like every year, we’ll of course pick our favorites of what 2018 had in store for us. And just to make it a little more interactive for your guys as well, we’ll let you decide for your winners in these categories in next weeks post, so please look forward to that~

Now, without further ado, here’s our picks for 2018~


Lena’s Best Yuri Anime: Bloom Into You

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

Spoiler Warning!


Title: Citrus
Artist: Saburouta
Genre: Drama, Pseudo-Incest, Romance, Yuri
Status: Completed – 10 Volumes

After so many years, ten volumes, numerous specials, and even an anime adaptation, Citrus has come to an end, and I can finally, finally review one of my all-time favorite manga.

But first things first, despite the fact that most of you probably know about Citrus already, let’s start with a short summary for those who have yet to enjoy it.

After her mothers remarriage, Yuzu is forced to move into a new home and enroll into a new school. As prepared and determined as she might be, the new school and especially the student council Mei she butts heads with on the first day, give her a hard time adjusting to this new environment. When she then finds out that said student council is her new step sister, things make an even worse turn. Now add the fact that Yuzu can’t help but be attracted to her new step sister and everything is a mess…
