February came and went in a flash, so now that March is here, it’s time for another Yuri News Update. As always, if we missed anything important, feel free to mention it down in the comments~
First up, the hype train for the second season of Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is going full speed ahead, and if this new PV is any indication, the summer anime season should be pretty fun. Let’s take a look~
Yup, I want it now. As expected, the stars of the first season are returning, but in the aftermath of the KyoAni arson attack, some changes to the production staff had to be made. This includes a new director, who moves over from the Hibike! Euphonium and Nichijou series, after the director of Kobayashi-san‘s first season unfortunately passed away in the attack.
On a brighter note, Kobayashi-san Chi no Dragon Maid S continues to look like the yuri anime event of the year, and I have little doubt that this is going to be nothing less than a great time. July can’t come soon enough~
I may have forgotten to post this last week, but that just means there are even more things to cover. As always, if we missed something important, feel free to mention it down in the comments~
First up, my current pick for the most anticipated yuri-ish anime of 2021. After a couple of quiet years, we finally know when the second season of Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon will premiere. July is when the fun begins, so mark your calendars, people.
There were a lot of people worried about Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon S after the KyoAni arson incident, but like the rest of the studio, it’s risen from the ashes and will continue on. If you haven’t seen the first season, you’re missing out on one of the most ridiculous and entertaining yuri-ish anime we’ve had in some time, but there’s still time to catch up, so what are you waiting for?! 😛
This list is still a work in progress and will be updated whenever there are new shows to add. Unlike past years, we won’t assume that certain non-pure yuri anime will have some kind of yuri, even if the series has had some yuri in the past. An example would be the newest season of WIXOSS. It might have some yuri, but it’s not a sure thing, so unless/until it does, it won’t be added to the list. Don’t fret, other upcoming anime that are more likely to include yuri will be included, such as the Revue Starlight movie.
Anyway, if you feel like we missed something, feel free to name your additions down in the comments~
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.
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…
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~
This month’s Yuri News Update consists of a second season of a beloved yuri-ish anime, some new visual novel releases, a traveling yuri fair, and more, so let’s get started~
To be honest, 2019 has been a little lackluster for yuri fans so far. Last year was so great that it feels like this year has already been pretty disappointing, and even if that might be true, this next bit of news will surely help make 2019 look a little better.
