This will be a smaller News update only focusing on Sono Hanabira. Nevertheless, it’s some big news~
First of all, let’s start with the one thing many of us have been waiting for for quite a while: A Kiss For The Petals: The New Generation!is available for purchase right now! It just went on sale yesterday, and you can get it for $34.95 right now over at MangaGamer!
The title speaks for itself. My reaction: I’LL FINALLY GET TO SEE THE TWINS’ LOVE STORY IN ENGLISH WITH NO INTERRUPTIONS! Doesn’t feel the same watching Youtube translations. Oh and this announcement was made during Mangagamer’s Otakon 2016 panel.
2015 is slowly coming to an end, which is why we’ll have to stick to our old traditions and hand out my personal Yuri Awards for the year. Enjoy!
Best Yuri Anime: Yuri Kuma Arashi
This one was actually the first big Yuri show of 2015, and it more or less blew our minds, for many different reasons. For many, this anime is one of the greatest shows of the whole year, due to the way you really had to invest some time and even re-watch episodes to really get what certain scenes were supposed to explain to us. For others, this was simply too much, making the show hard to follow, and thus easy to drop. Personally, I had a blast. I can’t say I really got all of what this show had to offer, but it was a real fun ride nevertheless~
Yes, you read that correctly. We are doing our first Giveaway on YuriReviews!
And what better time could we be doing this than shortly before Christmas, when everyone is in high spirits, thanks to the season of handing out and receiving presents? So, as mentioned a long, long time ago when I first implemented ads on this blog, I told you guys that if we were to actually make any money with it, we would be either spending it on new Yuri stuff to review or on something like a Giveaway. So the very first money that we were able to generate with this blog goes directly back to our readers~ Continue reading →
It’s been a while since the last News Update, so we have a lot to get to this time around. Let’s get started~
Starting off with everyone’s new favorite yuri hentai anime, Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid Specials are on the way. They’re mini OVA episodes that will come bundled with the Blu-ray and DVD releases of Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid. Volume 1 goes on sale on December 18th in Japan, so until Volume 6 is released in May 2016, we’ll have even more Mirei x Mamori goodness to feast our eyes on. It’s kind of disappointing that they’re only “mini” episodes, but let’s hope we see even more yuridiculous moments with these specials.
Also being announced a while back was plenty of Hibike! Euphonium news to get excited about. A recap movie, Hibike! Euphonium Movie: Kitauji Koukou Suisougaku-bu e Youkoso, as well as a second season have been given the greenlight. The recap movie is fine, but what’s really exciting is news of another season. Everyone fell in love with KumiRei, and after hearing all of the complaints voiced by the legions of yuri fans, let’s hope KyoAni comes to their senses and gives us what we really want. The movie is currently set for April 2016, while season two’s premiere is yet to be determined. If you can’t quite wait that long, don’t forget that an unaired episode (Hibike! Euphonium: Kakedasu Monaka) is being released alongside the seventh Blu-Ray and DVD volumes, which hit Japanese shelves on the 16th.
Ibara here! I’ll be presenting Recent Yuri Visual Novel News~
Before we start, for those who don’t know the term “Yurige”, it is the Japanese Yuri equivalent to the “galge” abbreviation for “regular” visual novels. I’ll be using the term ‘cause I’m more used to it than typing “Yuri VN” all the time. Also, although the title says ‘Visual Novel’, a few of these games are also RPG/action games. 😀
First off, what we have here is the most recent news for Visual Novels, exclusive other VN translation announcements already made (Okujou no Yurirei-san), and some other stuff that Lena K. beat me to (怒).
Sekai Project has announced that they will translate the 18+ Yurige ATOM GRRRL!! by Cosmillica into English. ATOM GRRRL!! is a crime-comedy adventure about 4 girls on the West Coast of the United States.
