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~
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.
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~
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~

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:
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.
It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the summer anime season that just started~
Length: ? • Genre: Comedy, School, Slice of Life • Studio: J.C.Staff
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!
