Let’s Talk About the Greatest Year in Yuri Anime History

greatest year in yuri anime history

2009: Obama was sworn in as president, The King of Pop died, and yuri anime had its best year ever. Looking at the current slate of airing anime is usually a depressing affair that involves hoping and praying that a show will have something, anything for us to pin our yuri hopes to. More often than not, that results in disappointment and an early look towards what the next season might bring. But once upon a time, there was no need for any of that. Regardless of the season, there was a little something for every type of yuri fan~

My Top 10 Yuri Anime

Spoiler warning!

Among all of my Top 10 lists, this was one that was still missing, so we gotta change that quickly!

Though, before getting into the list, let me say the following: Since we unfortunately still don’t have that many full yuri shows, you’ll also find shows with either heavy subtext or yuri as side stories in this list. With that said, let’s not waste any more time. So here are my Top 10 favorite Yuri anime. Enjoy!

Anime Review: Kanamemo

So far, I have watched this show twice. I watched it the first time right when I got into yuri, and I seriously don’t remember much of it, which is not only a huge shame, it’s actually a yuri crime!

How did I not fall in love with the yuri characters in this show?! And how the hell was I able to ignore the greatness of this show in general?! I seriously have no excuse for not noticing the brilliance of this show back then, but after watching it again, I now realize what I was too foolish to see a few years ago.

To all the yuri fans out there, I’m sorry it took me so long, here’s my review~

Year: 2009
Length: 13 Episodes
Genre: Slice of Life, Comedy

Story: 7/10 and Characters: 9/10
After her grandmother passed away, Nakamachi Kana is left alone without anyone she can call family. On her search for a new home, she comes across a newspaper station in which she then starts working as one of their carriers.

At first, she is under the impression that most of the girls working there must be quite weird, but as soon as she starts living there, she comes to realize that it’s actually thanks to these girls that she finally has something to call family again.

Kana’s story sounds quite sad and tragic, doesn’t it? But there are only a few moments in this anime that really make you feel this way. The rest is pure comedy with a lot of cute and wacky characters. We have Haruka for example. She’s the oldest one of the girls, but by far not the most mature one. Her two hobbies are drinking, and while being at it, harassing cute little girls, namely Kana and the little chief of their newspaper office, Saki.
