Mysterious Kase-san Poster

If Kase-san is going to get an anime adaptation, I’m probably going to cry sweet tears of happiness~

Though, yeah we don’t know for sure, but it sure looks like it. How exciting?!

Well, for now, let OG explain to you how he came to this assumption~

Update: It’s happening!! Kase-san is already listed on MAL: https://myanimelist.net/anime/35159/Asagao_to_Kase-san

The Yuri Nation

When I talked about the double whammy announcement of Citrus and Netsuzou Trap both getting anime right HERE I had a “fiiiine” and “special” reaction for both respectively. Recently I posted a tweet on my Twitter page briefly mentioning one manga series in particular. One series I would LOVE to see get animated. I do not often make posts about simple posters and little else. Look what happened after the supposed Virgins’ Empire anime was announced. I think it’s been nearly two years and we’ve heard nothing ever since. HOWEVER, I woke up this morning and once again my loyal fans and Yuri Council associates have shared the following news…

My Top 10 Yuri Manga That Should Be Made Into Anime

I’ve already made a similar post to this, talking about what kind of yuri manga I’d want to see animated and which manga combinations I think would make the perfect yuri anime. But since this post is already pretty old, I decided to update it, which is why I’ll now present to you my Top 10 Yuri Manga that should be made into Anime.

As always, this is only my opinion, so feel free to tell me what you think is missing in this list~

And before people point it out, not all of my picks are Manga, there are some games added as well.

10. A better Touhou anime

As great as the few Touhou anime projects are, they are still not what I really want to see.

You have the choice between fanmade projects that are either not voiced or that come with art and animation that is simply not as satisfying as we’d want it to be. Furthermore, the few episodes we’ve already gotten don’t really come with a plot that can be used for a whole anime, and that’s something I really don’t understand, given the numerous characters and their individual background stories. Honestly, I think the possibilities for a Touhou anime are simply endless.

Especially since we’ve now also gotten a Kantai Collection anime, I demand to see something similar for this game as well!

My Top 10 Yuri Manga [Updated]

It’s almost been a year since I made my first Top 10 list of this kind. If you wanna read it, click here. During that time, some manga came to an end, others started out, and still others surprised me by turning out really well. In short, a lot of things changed, and instead of just changing my previous list, I think it’s more convenient to just make a new one.

Many of the already listed manga will appear in this list again, but a whole bunch of new titles will finally appear too. 2013 has fortunately been a year full of great yuri manga, and while I think this will continue in 2014, we can probably already say that 2014 is also the year of great yuri anime, but that’s another story.

For now, let’s start the list.

10.
flower and the star yuri manga
Title: The Flower and the Star
Author: Suzukin Kario
Genre: Comedy, Drama, School Setting, Yuri
Description: Hanai is a junior higher and the best at table tennis. She’s never lost, and she’s won many tournaments, but after some freshman she’s never heard of beats her like it was nothing, she starts losing every game after that and she can’t get rid of that feeling of defeat. Now it’s her first day of high school and she’s decided to quit table tennis and live an ordinary high school life, but on the first day, she runs into the very girl that first defeated her. It turns out that she’s also quit table tennis, but this girl always has a cold expression on her face and Hanai can’t help but feel that this girl is always looking down on her and trying to mess up her perfect high school life. One day the girl falls asleep in class, and Hanai reaches over to wake her up. As she does so, the girl, still half asleep, looks up at her with a smile and almost kisses her. The girl later tells Hanai that she was having a dream about her, but Hanai coldly brushes it off thinking she’s just messing with her and walks away – as the girl behind her looks down while blushing….Source

Chapters: 11 Chapters + Special
Year: 2010
Scanlation Group: Yuri Project

I never thought a manga about table tennis could be this good, but then again, table tennis is not the main them of the story, the relationship between Hanai und Haru is. To be honest, I’d rather see Haru with her childhood friend Chika, and that’s probably the main reason why this one didn’t score higher.

My Personal Highlights of 2013

Since it’s the end of the year already, I thought it would be a good idea to just list my personal highlights of 2013 and kind of draw a final conclusion to see how “successful” this year has been for us yuri fans.

So first of all, let’s start with anime.
I think everyone will agree with me when I say that 2013 has been the year of Shingeki no Kyojin.
I have to be honest and tell you that I’m usually neither up to date with seasonal anime releases, nor do I pay attention to what shows are the most popular.
However, there was one anime this year that I could not miss simply because of its huge fandom, and I’m really happy I actually did take the time to see why everyone was going crazy about it.
Shingeki no Kyojin was without a doubt the most anticipated as well as successful anime of 2013 and I have to agree, it’s a fantastic show with a freaking awesome story. It is also one of the only (non-yuri) manga I’ve read in a long time and it’s even one of my favorites right now, which is so rare since I usually only read yuri stuff.
by レナ
Well, other than the manga and anime, especially the yuri pairing YumiKuri (Ymir x Christa) has gained a lot of popularity this year. There are already tons of doujinshi, fanfics and even short animated clips of them out. And since I’m up to date with the manga, I can safely assume that the fandom won’t just stop here, but rather grow even bigger.
But since I don’t want to spoil you guys, let’s just end it here and come to another highlight that happened at the end of the year, not too long ago.
The news of the 3rd Madoka Magica movie had been around for a while and in October the movie was finally released in Japan, while some other countries had to wait until December to finally watch it.

Find the English translation at Yuri Project

Story: 8/10

The story revolves around Yamada, a clumsy girl with not much self-esteem and only a few real friends, and Kase-san, a student from the class next door who is an excellent athlete, the star track team member, and on top of that, is popular all around school. Those two could not be more different from one another, yet once they meet, it is exactly the cool and a boyish aura of Kase-san that attracts Yamada’s interest.

Prepare for a cute and heart-warming romance with lots of funny moments~

Characters: 8/10

As already mentioned, the two main characters are very different from each other. Yamada, a plant appointee who’s taking care of the school garden flowers, is quite the shy and clumsy girl. Kase-san on the other hand, is an excellent athlete, has a lot of friends, and tends to look and act a little boyish. Despite the fact that those two are really different, it seems that when spending time together, they match each other quite well.
