After three seasons of Nanoha reviews, you thought we were done with the series? Ha! Good one. You can’t have a long-running franchise without a spin-off, so enter Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid. With more NanoFate mama action, this has to be good, right? Right?! Ummm…

After reviewing the first two seasons, we’re finally at the most recent installment in the main series (at least until Reflection comes to the West). How does Nanoha fare with an older and wiser NanoFate? Will the new characters make you long for the days of Nanoha’s friends? Will I keep asking dumb questions like these? The answers to these questions and more, right after the jump. 😛

Anime Review: Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A’s

Even though Lena has already reviewed the movie, there are some slight differences in the TV anime that that was based on, so I think a review of the original material seen through a different set of eyes is something worth exploring. Is A’s one of those instances where the sequel is better than the original? I think it’s a fairly easy question to answer…

Anime Review: Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

At long last, we’re finally getting around to covering another “classic” series with yuri undertones, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. NanoFate is one of our Top 10 Yuri Pairings, so you’d expect the show to perform reasonably well in the yuri department, but does it have anything else to offer? Let’s get to the bottom of this~

Which Anime Should We Review Next?

Coming on the heels of our latest YuriReviews survey, we thought it would kind of be a cool idea for you guys to determine which anime we’ll be reviewing next here on YR. The ten choices listed in the poll at the bottom of the post include some classic series as well as some newer ones, but I think they’d all make for interesting reviews.

We’ve listed some quick info on the nominees, as well as some questionable reasons why they should or shouldn’t be chosen. 😛

If what you’d prefer to read about isn’t listed, feel free to name your choice in the comments section~

ange vierge
Anime: Ange Vierge
Year: 2016
Length: 12 Episodes
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Magic, School

Why it should be next: It’s the most recent anime on this list. Who needs iconic series when you can have shiny and fancy animation from yesteryear?

My Top 10 Yuri Anime

Spoiler warning!

Among all of my Top 10 lists, this was one that was still missing, so we gotta change that quickly!

Though, before getting into the list, let me say the following: Since we unfortunately still don’t have that many full yuri shows, you’ll also find shows with either heavy subtext or yuri as side stories in this list. With that said, let’s not waste any more time. So here are my Top 10 favorite Yuri anime. Enjoy!

Who’s The Best Yuri Pairing? – Yuri Tournament: Semifinal

yuri tournament pairings

We’ve already arrived at the the semifinal, leaving us with only 6 competing pairings.

Just like the last round, I’m almost shocked to see some of the results. YuuxHaruka beat ChikanexHimeko? Interesting….

I guess this result alone might be enough to write a 10-page essay on the development of our favorite genre within the past few years. Ah well.

I’m also quite surprised to see NicoxMaki lose against HimawarixSakurako. Now, I sure hope that we’ll witness some more surprises in this round. Well, I have a feeling as if we can already tell who’s going to move on to the final round, so I really hope that I’m actually wrong and that things will stay interesting!

Have fun voting! Here’s the updated Tournament Bracket.
