This is the second installment in the series where we take a closer look at some anime that are probably too short for “regular” reviews, yet we still want to cover them and make our opinions known. Last time, we took a look at some more obscure offerings, but this time, we’re going a bit more mainstream, including an OVA from a series that yuri fans should be very familiar with~
It’s barely April, and we have yet another News Update ready, and it’s such a big one even! We seriously never had a year with more awesome yuri news than this one.
Let’s hope it continues that way!
First up, after quite a long wait, we finally got the results for Mangagamer’s annual licensing survey. And who would have guessed, our favorite genre is standing strong again!
The Sono Hanabira series is now in second place, and newcomer Kotonoha Amrilato made it onto the list, too.
All in all, I think we can be quite pleased with the results. But take a look for yourself, and see the full post over at Mangagamer.
For those who haven’t heard about this yet, what it means is simply that chances are very high that we will get some more official translations. Not only for more Sono Hanabira installments, but also possibly for other yuri visual novels~
It’s finally here! The game we’ve been waiting for for years is finally available in English!
What I’m talking about, of course, is the all-star Sono Hanabira installment Maidens of Michael. It was released just a few days ago, and right now, you get it for a 10% discount for just a few more days.
And for the very unlikely case that you haven’t heard of this little gem yet…
Remember when we talked about our wishes for 2018? I guess you could say we can already cross two things off of this list. Number one, Citrus is going strong. Number two, our most awaited SonoHana game—namely Maidens of Michael—will soon be released in English.
And when I say soon, I mean soon. On the 22nd of February, to be exact. I would have loved to have seen this get released on Valentine’s Day, but I am so okay with this date as well.
After having talked about the highlights as well as all the things that were already announced that we can look forward to in 2018, why not talk about our wishes for this year as well?
So far, we can definitely not complain about the amount of things we already know will hit us this year. However, as greedy as it might sound, there’s always more things the community might want, so today, let’s focus on all the things that might or might not follow or happen as 2018 drags along.
First up, as the Citrus anime is basically right around the corner, especially after the disappointment of last year’s anime adaptation of Netsuzou TRap, what we need right now is a yuri anime that does its job right. One that might finally attract more viewers, actually sells a decent amount of copies, and simply gains enough attention, in a positive way, if I might add.
It’s not the first time we’ve republished this post, but this time, the list has undergone a MASSIVE update. Around 300 more visual novels have been added to the list, giving us nearly 450 visual novels in total~
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 novels that still no translation group has picked up yet.
We plan to regularly update the list, so keep an eye out for more visual novels to be added! If you find a mistake or feel like there are titles that are missing, do let us know.
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 unless otherwise specified. For some of these VNs, it’d be a stretch to call them yuri visual novels, but they all have some semblance of yuri in them, so you could say that the term still applies.
The visual novels on the list will be broken down into three categories. You can click on which of these you’re looking for and skip ahead to that portion of the list.
First of all, which more or less popular yuri titles have already been fully translated/released?
Since we’re still in the middle of yet another year packed with yuri visual novels, it would be a crime to go without some fresh news for longer than a few weeks. So here we have some pretty damn awesome info for you. Let’s start right away with my personal favorite~
Okay, guys, hold on to your seats because what’s gonna hit you now is the best news ever! So MangaGamer yet again listened to our demands and will translate another Sono Hanabira title for us! Though, that is definitely not the best part of it, since it’s not just going to be any of the numerous SonoHana installments. No, it’s gonna be my personal favorite of all of them, A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael. This one is the first all-star title, featuring the first five couples the game series had to offer, as well as introducing one of my favorites, Miya and Risa.
