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.
First 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.
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!!.
Though, 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.
We don’t have much to cover this time, but the few things we do have, are quite awesome~
First up, there’s finally some more news about the upcoming Kase-san OVA. So this time, not only the release date was annouced, but also the leading voice actresses. Plus, we got a short Preview to get ourselves even more excited!
So, as decided by you guys, we ended up with three possible topics:
And as you can already tell from the title, we decided to go with the winner of the poll (and possibly the hardest to actually talk about).
Seeing as I’m a self-proclaimed master in the arts of Yuri, I think we have that part covered up pretty well. I also have the lesbian part down, though I fear that thanks to my still too few experiences (meaning that I’ve only been with one girl so far), I thought it would be best to get some help in that department. So I brought in NotATsun, a professional lesbian (:P), who will hopefully shine some light of wisdom on all the topics that I might simply not have the needed experience in.
We’ll divide this post in three parts:
Big Topics – How are lesbians usually depicted in yuri media?
Small Topics – Recurring yuri themes
What works do we think depict lesbians the most realistically?
It’s that time of the month again, news time! We have a mixed bag of all sorts of news for you, some a little older, some pretty new. Let’s start~
Ne No Kami – The Two Princess Knights of Kyoto Part 2 was just released and is now available for purchase on Denpasoft and Steam. There’s also an uncensored patch available (only for the Steam version). You can get it here.
For those interested, here’s Part 1 as well. Get it on Steam or Denpasoft.
