Yuri Anime Review: Asagao to Kase-san OVA

Asagao-to-Kase-san.-Characters-02After an fortunately not so long wait, it’s finally time for the second big yuri highlight of the year. What started out as a mere rumor, soon developed into a confirmed one-episode-long OVA, and as it turns out, it’s not only that, but rather something close to a short movie even!

To say that finding out about the length of this so called OVA was a pleasant surprise, is an understatement, a big one, actually. I was more thrilled than anything to find out about the actual length of this OVA, and all of a sudden, the fact that this was not a full-fledged anime didn’t seem to bother me that much anymore.

So just about a week ago, the OVA finally aired and presented to us roughly an hour of almost solely pure and unfiltered yuri fluff. What a time to be alive! Continue reading

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. 😉

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.

Our Personal Highlights of 2017 and Things to Look Forward to in 2018

Let’s start with the highlights of 2017.

The year has admittedly been good, but definitely not the greatest when it comes to yuri anime and manga, at least in my opinion. Focusing on anime, we got some fair amount of shows with yuri subtext, like Kakegurui and the second seasons of New Game! and Love Live! Sunshine!!.

kobayashi-san chi no maid dragonThough, the great highlights were rather shows like Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon, which simply surprised us with the amount of yuri—especially for a show by KyoAni—that seriously blurred the lines between only subtext and straight up yuri content. No one was really expecting that, which definitely makes this one of the greatest highlights of 2017 for me.
