My Top 10 Yuri Anime [Updated]

Spoiler Warning!

 

Just as I updated my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters, I’ll continue with this one that I originally posted many, many years ago.

In this case as well, quite a few things changed, and we have some newcomers as well. Please enjoy, and tell us about your Top 10 in the comments as well~

10. Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo

Admittedly, Cross Ange didn’t end the way we all wanted it to. Hilda didn’t get her much deserved girlfriend, and Ange ended up with Tusk, a male character. In terms of yuri, this couldn’t have gone any more wrong. Though, the yuri we got through the rest of the show probably made up for the horrible outcome, if only a little.

So, basically, the whole show involves some steamy yuri sex scenes, some kisses, and even some true romance, despite the fact that Cross Ange often didn’t depict the yuri taking place as something happening out of the characters’ love for one another. In the end, there were still enough yuri characters left, and if we now add the fact that the whole plot of this show, as well as pretty much all of the important characters, were pretty damn awesome, then this makes for a damn great anime, if you ask me.

My Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters [Updated]

Oh man, it’s been a while since I made one of these. Well, instead of posting an all-new Top 10 list, I thought about updating all my existing ones, starting with my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters.

As it turns out, quite a few of my picks from years ago still stay in my Top 10. However, there are quite a few newcomers as well.

I hope you enjoy~

If you feel like it, leave your Top 10 to discuss in the comments~


10. Shizuma Hanazono (Strawberry Panic)

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.

Yuri News Update: May 2018

There’s a lot to cover in this Yuri News Update, so let’s get started~


bloom into you anime

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. 😉

Yuri Anime Review: Strawberry Panic

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~

Which Anime Should We Review Next?

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~

ange vierge
Anime: Ange Vierge
Year: 2016
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?

Yuri Tournament – Best Yuri Kiss in Anime History – Finale

We’ve already reached the final round, and I gotta say, our three remaining kiss scenes definitely deserve to stand where they are right now.

Now will it be the bittersweet final kiss between our favorite priestesses, the long anticipated happy end kiss between Shizuma and Nagisa, or the oh so sweet after school kisses from Sakura Trick?

Despite the fact that my favorite kiss scene of all-time actually made it to the final round, the other two definitely deserve the title of Best Yuri Kiss as well.

Now let’s just wait and see which one will make it~

As always, find the updated tournament chart right here, and for the final time in this tournament, have fun voting!
