Yuri News Update: December 2018

tumblr adult content ban

First up, let’s start with some bad news for those of us who use Tumblr a lot (like myself).

In case you haven’t heard, Tumblr has made the idiotic bold decision to ban adult content starting on December 17th, citing an effort to make Tumblr a place where more people feel comfortable expressing themselves.

Even though it has its fair share of problems, a lot of people still use Tumblr for their yuri needs, so the NSFW yuri content floating around on there might soon disappear forever. And that’s why there are already people hoping to change that decision by starting a petition.

It’s only been two days since the petition was started, yet it’s already accumulated more than 350,000 signatures. If you want to add your name to the list, you can do so right here.

Let’s Talk About OT3’s and Crack Pairings

Inspired by OG’s post about OT3s, I thought, why not talk about it myself? It’s a pretty interesting topic. However, let’s spice things up by adding crack pairings into the mix as well.

Though, first things first; What is an OT3? Well, if you’ve already heard about an OTP, which literally means “one true pairing”, you simply add another person, making it a 3 person relationship.

love live sunshineLove Live! does a great job at providing us with ample material, so let’s go with You x Riko x Chica [Love Live! Sunshine!!] and Kotori x Umi x Honoka [Love Live!] as examples.

As for crack pairings, it’s basically a romantic pairing that doesn’t make much sense, is just absurd, and possibly also just goes against the let’s say more mainstream pairings of the series.

My Top 10 Favorite Yuri Pairings [Updated]

Can you believe it? It’s been 2 years since I last updated this list?! Surely, a lot has changed in these 2 years, so it’s about time to add some new pairings to the list and update my thoughts on the ones that have been in there for years already~

shuumatsu no izetta yuri10. Finé x Izetta (Shuumatsu no Izetta)

Finé is already one of my favorite anime characters of 2016, while Izetta probably made it to my top 3 cutest anime characters of all-time. So even without pairing them up with each other, I’m absolutely in love with both of them. However, if you now ship them with each other, what emerges from this simple equation of Finé + Izetta, is simply heavenly.

Those two compliment each other wonderfully, with strong and badass Finé handling her beloved and oh so loyal Izetta with the utmost care.

Their scenes together are some of the most enjoyable moments in anime history, and it makes me wonder just why in the world there hasn’t been more fan art and doujinshi about them. It’s something that I really can’t understand, as to me, they seem like the perfect match~

Anime Review: Love Live! Sunshine!!

love live sunshine

Spoiler Warning – If you’re only interested in my ratings, scroll all the way down~

Basically, this new season of Love Live! is pretty much a clone of the very first Love Live! season, only with slightly better animation and characters with different names:

love live sunshine chika
Oops. Sorry, Chika!

Genki girl Hono-, I mean Chika, one day decides that she wants to be a school idol and thus starts looking for more members. Of course, the student council is—for mysterious reasons—not too happy about that, but they make it through anyway, gain more members on their way, and even get their initial opponents to join the team. Sounds familiar?

Anyway, the characters seem pretty similar to the μ’s girls as well, but I think I should let pictures speak instead.

Anime Summer Season 2016: First Impressions

2016 summer anime

 

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the summer anime season that just started~

Amanchu!
Length: ? • Genre: Comedy, School, Slice of Life • Studio: J.C.Staff
amanchu anime

After having read the description of this show, I bet a lot of us had our hopes up for at least a little yuri subtext. Having watched the first episode now, I think that’s actually not all we might be able to hope for. The whole set-up of how the two girls meet reminds me so, so much of the typical girl x girl encounter you can find in numerous other yuri shows and especially in manga. Long hair swaying in the wind, the two meeting by the ocean, ending up in the same class, and sitting right next to each other…. Yeah, that really sounds like the start of a great “friendship”, one where I can totally see Futaba developing feelings for airhead Hikari in no time.

Though, how far will this show go showing us their relationship? It’s not described as a yuri show, though neither was Madoka, and see how far things went in that one. So, yeah. I have my hopes up, and I sure hope they won’t disappoint us!
