Yet again, the year went by in a flash, or at least that’s how it feels to me. And in old YuriReviews fashion, we’ll of course talk about our highlights of this oh so short year, so let’s just get right to it.
I feel like, compared to 2015, 2016 had a noticeably larger amount of yuri content to offer to us, especially when it comes to Visual Novels. FLOWERS, Kindred Spirits on the Roof, and Nurse Love Addiction, just to name some big titles here. But that’s the thing, despite having them and numerous others, it doesn’t just stop there. There are actually even more in the making right now, and that is a situation that has never, ever been there before. Continue reading →
2016 had a lot to offer. Maybe not too many yuri anime, but definitely a lot of other yuri media, such as a ton of yuri visual novels and some really awesome new yuri manga.
So in old YuriReviews fashion, we would like to hand out some awards for who and what we think deserves these awards most this year:
Lena’s Best Yuri Anime: Shuumatsu no Izetta
Well, other than the Valkyrie Drive Specials we can’t really say 2016 offered any other pure yuri show, so I guess we have to work with what we got and make the best of it, right? So, since I didn’t want to go with “only” some specials from a show that aired last year, I decided to go with the show that came closest to what I think is really yuri, which is Izetta: The Last Witch. Despite the fact that she show doesn’t label itself as yuri, nor do the two main characters ever really declare their love, I still feel like it’s pretty obvious that they actually do love each other—romantically, that is. And if they are not yet in a relationship with each other, then I’m freaking sure they will be at some point, since their chemistry was simply over the top amazing, just like the show itself~
It seems like there is a lot going on when it comes to our favorite genre right now, which is really nice~
As always, we tried to list the most recent pieces of information for you:
Starting off, how about some news about FLOWERS? As sudden as it might seem, after so much waiting, the Visual Novel just got released in English today! This news is so surprising that I first didn’t even believe it, though it is true, as you can already download the digital Version over at JAST USA.
If you’re waiting for the Steam version, depending on your location you might not be able to download it just yet, but they’ll surely solve the problem in no time. So click hereto download the game/demo on steam whenever it’ll be available in your location.
Next up we have some news that might sound familiar. As already announced a year ago, this time it might really come true, the Comic Yuri Hime will finally be released monthly starting next year. I sure hope it will actually happen this time. Find more Information regarding this by clicking here.
Guess what news we can yet again talk about? That’s right, it’s time to talk about Yuri Visual Novels!
Prepare for a very long post~
First off, the highly anticipated Highway Blossoms has finally been released and is available for purchase on Steam right now.
For those that are not yet familiar with the game, here’s yet again a short plot summary:
The gold rush has struck the west for a second time. Highway Blossoms is the story of Amber, a girl trying her best to be alone on the road until she stumbles upon a young hitchhiker and the journal of a prospector from long ago.
As we’re all more or less patiently waiting for the release dates of Visual Novels like FLOWERS and Catch Canvas, we’ve just recently found out that two other very promising looking yuri Visual Novels will be released really soon:
A Little Lily Princessby Hanako Games, for example, will be released in just a few more days, on May 19th, 2016.
If you wanna find out more about this game, either click its title or find it on Steam, right here.
I know what you guys are thinking: “Why is she putting up yet another post about Kindred Spirits?” Well, that’s really easy to answer. Even if I already posted my review of this wonderful Visual Novel, there is simply plenty more for me to say. And while I tried to hold back my inner fangirl in my review, I’m letting it all out in this one. So be prepared. It’s gonna be a loooooong post~
This post is going to feature the following aspects:
