2017 summer anime

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our Final Thoughts on the summer anime season that just came to an end~


Netsuzou TRap • 3.5/10
Length: 12 Episodes • Genre: Drama, Yuri

You can read our full review of Netsuzou TRap right here, so there’s no need for me to ramble on and on about how I didn’t like this at all.

At one point in time, I was contemplating picking up the manga, but after watching the anime, needless to say that I now have zero interest in doing so. When Creators in Pack was revealed as the studio in charge of production, I think eyebrows were raised due to their less-than-stellar track record, and things didn’t get any better when the show’s very first PV was revealed, as well as the short-form anime format.

Netsuzou TRap may have turned out to be a dud, but the Citrus adaptation and the Kase-san OVA continue to give up hope that maybe we’ll finally have another good yuri anime come our way in 2018. Whether or not they meet our expectations, I doubt either one of them will be as disappointing as NTR turned out to be.

Anime Summer Season 2017: First Impressions

2017 summer anime first impressions

It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the summer anime season that just started~

Netsuzou TRap
Studio: Creators in Pack • Genre: Drama, Yuri

As you probably know from my First Impression post dedicated only to this show, I was a bit disappointed. Now, after seeing 2 more episodes of Netsuzou TRap, my opinion hasn’t changed, and I in fact settled with the thought that this one will simply not be as great as I was hoping it would be.

Let’s just say that other than the fast pace and the low-budgety animation, I guess I’m missing the feeling the manga gave off. Even if the anime shows exactly what is presented in each and every chapter, the feeling and atmosphere present in the manga is for some reason completely absent in the anime version, even though this kind of media should be perfect to amplify these things even more. Ah well, no use complaining about it. It’s still definitely worth watching, and who knows, maybe it’ll get better from here on.

First Impression: Netsuzou TRap

A19054-2507456677.1487130429Finally the day has come that the first of the big two upcoming yuri shows premiered.

Even after the shock that each and every episode would only last for about 10 minutes, the hype was still strong, and many of us yuri fans anticipated this summer anime season partly or maybe even mostly because of Netsuzou TRap.

So far, I’ve refrained from reading any other first impressions of this show, simply because I’m easily influenced and I want to put up a, let’s say unfiltered first view on this adaptation. Putting it like this, I think it’s obvious that my enjoyment of Netsuzou TRap might not match or even come close to what other fans experienced, but oh well…

Yuri News Update – June 2017

Let’s start off with some great news first that will hopefully lessen the pain of what is going to follow…

So, just a few days ago, we got another trailer for Netsuzou TRap, and it looks freaking promising, even though we have to admit that the animation is not… let’s call it “high quality”. Nevertheless, take a look at the yuri goodness right here:

With the trailer, however, also came the information that each episode will only last for about 10 minutes. Let’s not try to hide it, this simply sucks, but we gotta look on the bright side; It’s still much better than having even shorter episodes, so I’ll stop my complaining and simply start hyping myself up again. Join me, guys!

What to Expect in 2017

Since we now all made it safely into the new year, why not take the opportunity to just take a small look at what we might expect to see in the following 12 months?

citrus netsuzuo trap animeWell, of course, we have to start with the news that hit us in late 2016 – that being Citrus and Netsuzou Trap both getting anime adaptations. Well, since we didn’t really get any more information other than the fact that those two manga will be made into anime, we can’t really be sure that the adaptations will happen in 2017. In fact, we only know for sure in case of Netsuzou Trap. Though, I think we’ll get some more information on that soon, so let’s now just expect both shows to hit us this year.
