2009: Obama was sworn in as president, The King of Pop died, and yuri anime had its best year ever. Looking at the current slate of airing anime is usually a depressing affair that involves hoping and praying that a show will have something, anything for us to pin our yuri hopes to. More often than not, that results in disappointment and an early look towards what the next season might bring. But once upon a time, there was no need for any of that. Regardless of the season, there was a little something for every type of yuri fan~
When it comes to visual novels, my knowledge is pretty limited, since I have just not spent that much time on playing many. Of course, part of the reason why I haven’t done so is the fact that there are simply not that many translated visual novels available that trigger my interest, so my knowledge is almost solely limited to yuri VNs.
In this post, I decided to write about my experiences with yuri visual novels, tell you which ones I liked the most, and also name some yuri titles for you that are either already translated or that are being worked on right now. And finally, I would also like to list just a few of the most interesting looking yuri visual nvels that still no translation group has picked up yet.
Please note that by clicking the titles, you’ll get redirected to either the game’s VNDB entry, official website, or in some cases, my own review of the game. Also, the release dates and publishers listed refer to the English translation.
We’ve added more than 60 more visual novels to the list, as well as listed the publisher, developer, length (according to VNDb), and release date for every entry~
Can you believe it? It’s been 2 years since I last updated this list?! Surely, a lot has changed in these 2 years, so it’s about time to add some new pairings to the list and update my thoughts on the ones that have been in there for years already~
Finé is already one of my favorite anime characters of 2016, while Izetta probably made it to my top 3 cutest anime characters of all-time. So even without pairing them up with each other, I’m absolutely in love with both of them. However, if you now ship them with each other, what emerges from this simple equation of Finé + Izetta, is simply heavenly.
Those two compliment each other wonderfully, with strong and badass Finé handling her beloved and oh so loyal Izetta with the utmost care.
Their scenes together are some of the most enjoyable moments in anime history, and it makes me wonder just why in the world there hasn’t been more fan art and doujinshi about them. It’s something that I really can’t understand, as to me, they seem like the perfect match~
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!
I still have my hopes up for Maidens of St. Michael, but this is awesome news as well~
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!
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~
