Yuri News Update: September 2020

yuri news update september 2020

As we do at the beginning of every month, it’s time to recap what’s been going on in the world of yuri. If we missed something important, feel free to let us know in the comments, but without further ado, let’s get started.


adachi to shimamura yuri anime

First up, we’re just over a month away from the premiere of the anime adaptation of Adachi to Shimamura, and to tide us over until then, a new PV and key visual have been released. The E.T. vibes of the visual are nice, and the PV? It further cements this as a “can’t-miss” anime for yuri fans.

The sweet tone of the PV is something I’ve been missing from all these other anime, and with the yuri drought we’ve been experiencing almost at its end, Adachi to Shimamura should be the most anticipated yuri anime since Bloom Into You. But that’s not all the AdaShima news there is to pass along…

Yuri News Update: April 2020

Even in the midst of a pandemic, the yuri world never stops, so let’s get on with the news~


magia record mahou shoujo madoka magica

First up, some rather pleasant news for fans of Madoka☆Magica. Right after the presumed final episode of Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica Gaiden aired, a second season was confirmed, so it sounds like we are (likely) going to get some finality from this spin-off after all.

 
Without getting into spoilers, episode thirteen was pretty insane, yet ending on a cliffhanger like that wasn’t so cool. Practically everyone who’s seen Magia Record will agree that it’s definitely not as great as the main series, but I think it was pretty entertaining nevertheless. As is usually the case in situations like this, we don’t yet know exactly when we’ll be able to continue watching—the tweet supposedly mentions “coming soon”—but we’ll let you know once we have a date~

Yuri Awards: Best of the Decade

yuri awards best of the decade


*** SPOILER WARNING ***


Because it’s the end of the decade, we thought we had to have it go out in style by creating a star-studded award ceremony celebrating yuri’s best and brightest. If I wasn’t allergic to manga and visual novels (:P), this post would be even bigger, but as it is, there are over 30 awards up for grabs, so take a seat as we do our best Oprah impersonation and just hand out the honors.

Oh, and because it’s a super special occasion, there are also a few non-yuri awards handed out, but enough talking! Let’s get started~

Yuri News Update: July 2019

There’s some more yuri news to cover, so let’s get right to it.


vlad love anime

Well, this is some potentially interesting news. It was announced that we’ll be getting a new twelve-episode anime in the spring of 2020 from Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii, and he’ll serve as creator and chief director. This is his first directorial gig in over thirty years, and that’s cool and all, but why are we mentioning this on YR again?

Well, you see, the anime was described as a slapstick comedy that’ll revolve around a vampire named Mai and her high school friends. It’s supposed to be a serious take on the girl-meets-girl theme ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), and the story will soley focus on five young girls and have no handsome men. Sounds interesting to me! 😛

vlad love anime

Vlad Love is being brought to us by studios Drive and Production I.G, and who knows if this anime will actually have any yuri, but it definitely sounds like something to keep an eye on~

First up, there’s only a few more weeks to go until the anime adaptation of Bloom Into You will hit us. So just in time, we’ve been blessed with another preview. Enjoy!

Anime Review: Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??

gochuumon anime review

You can just call 2015 “The Year of Moe”. Along with the second seasons of Kiniro Mosaic and Non Non Biyori—and the third season of Yuru Yuri—we’ve been gifted one more precious present in the form of Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??. Can it finish what Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic started and make The Year of Moe something we’ll fondly look back on years from now? If you’re familiar with the series, you can probably guess the answer.

Anime Fall Season 2015: Final Thoughts

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our final thoughts on the autumn anime season that just came to an end~

Length: 12 Episodes • Genre: Action, Ecchi, Fantasy, Yuri


What’s the most exciting Yuri show this season? That’s right, it’s no other show than our favorite borderline hentai, Valkyrie Drive.

Since I already posted my full review a few days ago, I don’t really have that much left to say. The anime itself was rather mediocre, the yuri, however, probably blew all our minds.

If you wanna read more, here’s our review~
