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.

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!

Yuri Tournament – Who’s The Best Yuri Character? – Round 0

It’s finally time for something really new, something that has never been done on this blog before, and something that involves you guys!

Let me present to you, YuriReviews first and only Yuri Tournament. With this, we will try to figure out which yuri character is the greatest and most loved yuri character of them all.

So what did we do?
• We came up with more than 100 yuri characters.
• We decided to only go for those characters that either show some strong lesbian tendencies, are undoubtedly lesbian, or at least have enough subtext going on to gain a lot of supporters in our community.

And what will you have to do?
Easy, you’ll simply have to vote for the characters that you think deserve the title of the best yuri character the most.

We will divide this competition into 9 individual posts. This post right here counts as Round 0. You can view it as something like a preliminary decision. You can see which characters will take part in the actual competition that follows and also tell us which characters you think are still missing. Those then might be added into the first round.

However, this is not all. In this round, you will decide which characters from shows/games like Love Live!, Touhou, Kantai Collection, Sono Hanabira, and Akuma no Riddle will make it to the first round. Since these shows/games feature way too many yuri-ish characters to add them all to the list, it’s probably a wiser decision to just add the most popular ones.

Just scroll down and click the group you want to vote for first.
