Not too long ago, we gave you OUR choices for the best anime, manga, and visual novels of 2018, but this time, it’s YOUR turn to choose the winners.
Because some of the categories from our list are incredibly hard to narrow down to only a handful of nominees, we’ve left some of those categories out. Also, forgive us if the nominees skew towards anime. 😛
★ BEST YURI ANIME ★
There are other shows like Tachibanakan Triangle that could have been nominated, but let’s be real, everyone knows it’s a three horse race.
Bo-Eun is quiet and soft spoken in high school. She befriends a stray cat that she names Dallae and shortly aftwards bumps into Saeyeon, who it turns out attends her high school. While watching the smart and sporty Saeyeon from a far, she eventually becomes infatuated with her but is too shy to approach her. Fast forward to college and Bo-Eun discovers that Saeyeon attends a school close by. Still not confident, Bo-Eun confides to Dallae about her desire for Saeyeon and the dreams she has of her. Turns out the cat has an inside track into the goings on of Saeyeon.
I like how minimalistic the art and dialog in this one is. It’s all about looks and glances between the two and lots of blushing. It’s one of those that are roughly drawn, but it communicates so much. It’s a slow burn romance story of the shy Bo-Eun and mysterious Saeyeon, whose slow advances eventually break through to the ever timid Bo-Eun. I really like this one so far, it’s fluffy and makes you chuckle, too.Continue reading →
