It’s the final Yuri News Update of the year (and decade), so, unsurprisingly, most of this month’s stories involve some of what will be taking up our time in 2020. So for the last time in 2019, let’s do this.
It’s another jam-packed month of stuff to cover, so let’s get started.
Finally, we have some concrete information about the first of the six-movie sequels to Princess Principal. The first film is titled Princess Principal: Crown Handler, and you can check out the short teaser below~
This first film has unfortunately been delayed to April, but regardless, I’m still very hyped about this. What I’m a little less hyped about is having to adjust to a new voice actress for Ange, seeing as the original voice actress, Ayaka Imamura, had to retire last year due to health issues. But seeing as her replacement, Aoi Koga, voiced Kaguya in the awesome Kaguya-sama: Love is War, this is really a non-issue to me.
However, what could be an issue is the change in scriptwriters as well as no mention of one of the studios responsible for the first season’s production, Studio 3Hz. But I think it’s still too early to push the panic button, and Yuki Kajiura is still involved, so I still have high hopes for this series.
The yuri hype train never stops, and this month’s installment sees a little bit of everything, so come aboard and enjoy the sights~
The November premiere of Flag Time keeps getting closer and closer, and now that we’re just a couple of months away, we finally have a proper trailer to gaze at. Check it out~
Looks pretty promising, huh? The teaser we saw back in June gave us a tiny glimpse of what to expect, so even though this is going to be no more than an hour long, it should still easily be one of the yuri anime highlights of 2019. With how mediocre this year has been for yuri anime fans, this can’t come soon enough, so just give it to us already! 😀
There’s a lot to cover in this Yuri News Update, so let’s get started~
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard about the amazing news that Bloom Into You is getting an anime adaptation.
Unlike some other recent yuri anime adaptations *cough* Netsuzou TRap & Tachibanakan Triangle *cough*, an anime studio with some respectable titles under its belt will be handling this in TROYCA (Aldnoah.Zero, Re:Creators, and Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru).
When we last checked in, this was a leak that had yet to be confirmed, but it’s now official, and October is when this is set to premiere. If you remember, last year, Bloom Into You won our Yuri Tournament to decide which yuri manga was most deserving of an anime adaptation, so I think it’s safe to say that all of you folks who voted for it are responsible for this. Thanks. 😉
