The award for the hottest lady-killer definitely goes to Shizuma. And even though I absolutely can’t stand people who play with the feelings of others, I can’t really get myself to dislike her. Also, it’s thanks to her that we got to see so many yuri kisses, or at least all these great moments in which kisses almost happened.
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. 😉
Coming up just short in our Which Anime Should We Review Next? poll was Strawberry Panic, but when it comes to yuri anime, they don’t get much more legendary than this one, so it had to be what we reviewed next. More than a decade after its premiere, this is still one of the titans of yuri media, so it’s about time we gave it its due~
Coming on the heels of our latest YuriReviews survey, we thought it would kind of be a cool idea for you guys to determine which anime we’ll be reviewing next here on YR. The ten choices listed in the poll at the bottom of the post include some classic series as well as some newer ones, but I think they’d all make for interesting reviews.
We’ve listed some quick info on the nominees, as well as some questionable reasons why they should or shouldn’t be chosen. 😛
If what you’d prefer to read about isn’t listed, feel free to name your choice in the comments section~
Anime: Ange Vierge
Length: 12 Episodes
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Magic, School
Why it should be next: It’s the most recent anime on this list. Who needs iconic series when you can have shiny and fancy animation from yesteryear?
Why it shouldn’t be next: Who needs shiny and fancy animation when you can have an iconic series from yuri’s past?
I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like it’s getting more intense with each round. Admittedly, I already experienced a matchup that almost felt like a good finale to me, that being Chikane x Himeko VS Himiko x Kaon.
Though, I’m also seeing some quite intense matchups in this one as well~
As always, have fun voting! You can find the tournament bracket right here.
