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.
