Yuri News Update: June 2019

Since it’s been a while since our last Yuri News Update, there’s a lot to cover this time around. Let’s get started~


flag time fragtime yuri anime

First up, some much-needed good great news in this yuri anime drought we’re suffering from.

Looks like we have another anime adaptation to look forward to, come November. That’s when Flag Time will grace us with its presence in Japanese theaters, a few years after the manga finished its run. The OVA comes courtesy of Tear Studio, and it reunites the director, animation director, and composer of Asagao to Kase-san., so needless to say, it appears this OVA is in good hands.

I think we can all agree that we NEED some more yuri anime this year, so even though November seems far off, this is still very welcome news. This seems like a bit of an odd choice to adapt into an anime—considering what other great stuff is out there—but at least the story is interesting, so my hopes remain pretty high that this will turn out to be one of the yuri anime highlights of the year~

My Top 10 Yuri Anime [Updated]

Spoiler Warning!

 

Just as I updated my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters, I’ll continue with this one that I originally posted many, many years ago.

In this case as well, quite a few things changed, and we have some newcomers as well. Please enjoy, and tell us about your Top 10 in the comments as well~

10. Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo

Admittedly, Cross Ange didn’t end the way we all wanted it to. Hilda didn’t get her much deserved girlfriend, and Ange ended up with Tusk, a male character. In terms of yuri, this couldn’t have gone any more wrong. Though, the yuri we got through the rest of the show probably made up for the horrible outcome, if only a little.

So, basically, the whole show involves some steamy yuri sex scenes, some kisses, and even some true romance, despite the fact that Cross Ange often didn’t depict the yuri taking place as something happening out of the characters’ love for one another. In the end, there were still enough yuri characters left, and if we now add the fact that the whole plot of this show, as well as pretty much all of the important characters, were pretty damn awesome, then this makes for a damn great anime, if you ask me.

My Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters [Updated]

Oh man, it’s been a while since I made one of these. Well, instead of posting an all-new Top 10 list, I thought about updating all my existing ones, starting with my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters.

As it turns out, quite a few of my picks from years ago still stay in my Top 10. However, there are quite a few newcomers as well.

I hope you enjoy~

If you feel like it, leave your Top 10 to discuss in the comments~


10. Shizuma Hanazono (Strawberry Panic)

The award for the hottest lady-killer definitely goes to Shizuma. And even though I absolutely can’t stand people who play with the feelings of others, I can’t really get myself to dislike her. Also, it’s thanks to her that we got to see so many yuri kisses, or at least all these great moments in which kisses almost happened.
