February came and went in a flash, so now that March is here, it’s time for another Yuri News Update. As always, if we missed anything important, feel free to mention it down in the comments~
First up, the hype train for the second season of Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is going full speed ahead, and if this new PV is any indication, the summer anime season should be pretty fun. Let’s take a look~
Yup, I want it now. As expected, the stars of the first season are returning, but in the aftermath of the KyoAni arson attack, some changes to the production staff had to be made. This includes a new director, who moves over from the Hibike! Euphonium and Nichijou series, after the director of Kobayashi-san‘s first season unfortunately passed away in the attack.
On a brighter note, Kobayashi-san Chi no Dragon Maid S continues to look like the yuri anime event of the year, and I have little doubt that this is going to be nothing less than a great time. July can’t come soon enough~
This list is still a work in progress and will be updated whenever there are new shows to add. Unlike past years, we won’t assume that certain non-pure yuri anime will have some kind of yuri, even if the series has had some yuri in the past. An example would be the newest season of WIXOSS. It might have some yuri, but it’s not a sure thing, so unless/until it does, it won’t be added to the list. Don’t fret, other upcoming anime that are more likely to include yuri will be included, such as the Revue Starlight movie.
Anyway, if you feel like we missed something, feel free to name your additions down in the comments~
The yuri drought is coming to an end, and judging by the stories in this month’s Yuri News Update, the near future actually looks pretty good for yuri-ish anime fans. As always, if we missed any important news stories, let us know in the comments.
It’s almost here! The anime adaptation of Adachi to Shimamura begins airing this week, and we recently got these two PVs that are focused on each of our two protagonists. Take a look~
It’s going to be awesome to finally have another pure yuri anime to watch, and it’s even better that this one looks really promising. It’s probably unrealistic to expect this to be on the level of something like Bloom Into You, but it has to be better than Flag Time, right?
Even in the midst of a pandemic, the yuri world never stops, so let’s get on with the news~
First up, some rather pleasant news for fans of Madoka☆Magica. Right after the presumed final episode of Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica Gaiden aired, a second season was confirmed, so it sounds like we are (likely) going to get some finality from this spin-off after all.
Without getting into spoilers, episode thirteen was pretty insane, yet ending on a cliffhanger like that wasn’t so cool. Practically everyone who’s seen Magia Record will agree that it’s definitely not as great as the main series, but I think it was pretty entertaining nevertheless. As is usually the case in situations like this, we don’t yet know exactly when we’ll be able to continue watching—the tweet supposedly mentions “coming soon”—but we’ll let you know once we have a date~
Now that we’re in 2020, it’s time to once again look ahead at what the rest of the year has in store for us. Overall, 2019 was another solid year for yuri fans, with plenty of manga and visual novels to choose from, but you couldn’t say the same about anime. The good news is that it can’t get much worse, so hopes are high that 2020 could be an improvement.
Looking ahead to 2020, the first thing that sticks out to me is the fact that we already have a pure yuri anime to look forward to. Over the summer, it was announced that Adachi to Shimamura would be getting an anime adaptation, and even though we still don’t know the length of the anime, it’s nice to know that there’s something good on the way~
