Oh man, it’s been a while since I made one of these. Well, instead of posting an all-new Top 10 list, I thought about updating all my existing ones, starting with my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters. As it turns out, quite a few of my picks from years ago still stay in my Top 10. However, there are quite a few newcomers as well. I hope you enjoy, and if you feel like it, leave your own Top 10 in the comments~
The award for the hottest lady-killer definitely goes to Shizuma. And even though I absolutely can’t stand people who play with the feelings of others, I can’t really get myself to dislike her. Also, it’s thanks to her that we got to see so many yuri kisses, or at least all these great moments in which kisses almost happened.
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.
This post is not going to focus on anything yuri, since I won’t be talking about manga, anime, or anything like that. This time, I just want to talk about something different, so please don’t read this if you’re not interested in what I have to say about the following three shows: Faking it, Carmilla, and The Legend of Korra.
Don’t worry, this is not going to become a regular thing, but since I’m watching all three of them, and since this is more or less a blog about lesbian stuff, I think it’s okay to just talk about a different kind of yuri this time.
But enough with the justifications, let’s start with Carmilla.
