Yuri News Update: August 2020

yuri news update

It’s that time of the month again, time to go over what’s been happening in the world of yuri anime, manga, and visual novels. So sit back, relax, and enjoy August’s Yuri News Update~

And as usual, if we missed anything important, let us know in the comments.


donuts under a crescent moon yuri manga

There are a lot of manga licenses to get to, so let’s start off with one. Thanks to the kind folks at Seven Seas, Doughnuts Under a Crescent Moon will be brought to audiences in North America, with the first volume being released in February 2021. In case you’re not familiar with it, here’s the description.

Uno Hinako throws herself into makeup, fashion, and falling in love, hoping that will make her seem “normal” to the other people at her job. But no matter how hard she tries, she’s a self-doubting mess inside, and her attempts at “normal” romance with men just keep failing. When she starts to think she might be alone forever, a new normal presents itself–in the form of her relationship with Sato Asahi, a level-headed woman who works at her company, which starts as respect until it becomes far more intimate.

While yuri anime fans have to make do with the typical assortment of idols, magical girls, and school girls, yuri manga fans get interesting stories like this, and I’d be lying if I said I’m not jealous. Not every story has to star fifteen-year-olds, so manga fans have it pretty dman good, especially with all these licenses that keep coming down the pike.

Yuri News Update: May 2020

It’ll take a lot more than a pandemic to stop the yuri world from spinning, and this month, we have more proof of that. So sit back, relax, and prepare yourself for another heaping helping of yuri news~


First up, one of the most beloved yuri couples of all-time is making a return. It was announced last month that Kannazuki no Miko creators Kaishaku will be launching a spinoff manga later this month. Somewhere, chimekolover88 is still jumping for joy. 😛

Previous Kannazuki no Miko spinoffs were, uhhh, not so great, but it’s more Chimeko! No matter how mediocre previous entries in the franchise were, KnM fans will still probably eat this new spinoff up, and who would’ve thought that in our greatest time of need, it would be Chimeko that would come to our rescue? Besides, Kyoushirou to Towa no Sora wasn’t bad, so there is precedent for a solid KnM spinoff.

Just like our Yuri Anime 2013, Yuri Anime 2014, Yuri Anime 2015, Yuri Anime 2016, Yuri Anime 2017, Yuri Anime 2018, and Yuri Anime 2019 lists, this one will also feature all the yuri-ish shows that will air in 2020. Since it’s not even 2020 yet, this list is still in progress and will be updated whenever there are new shows to add. If you feel like we missed something, feel free to name your additions~

And for some anime that SEEM to have yuri potential, we might include those until our hopes are dashed in the worst way possible. 😛

Yuri News Update: March 2019 – Part II

We got a lot of news to cover again, so let’s get right to it!

flag time yuri manga sato

Let’s start with what surprised me—and probably a lot of other people—the most this month: We’ll get another yuri anime adaptation, and it’s going to be a work that I had almost forgotten about, Fragtime by Sato. In case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s the synopsis.

What would you do if you could stop time? Moritani for one is using her unusual ability to stop time for three minutes a day to observe the people around her. One day, she chooses to “observe” class idol Murakami’s panties—only to find herself in a very compromising situation when her classmate turns out to be immune to her power.

Yuri News Update: December 2018

tumblr adult content ban

First up, let’s start with some bad news for those of us who use Tumblr a lot (like myself).

In case you haven’t heard, Tumblr has made the idiotic bold decision to ban adult content starting on December 17th, citing an effort to make Tumblr a place where more people feel comfortable expressing themselves.

Even though it has its fair share of problems, a lot of people still use Tumblr for their yuri needs, so the NSFW yuri content floating around on there might soon disappear forever. And that’s why there are already people hoping to change that decision by starting a petition.

It’s only been two days since the petition was started, yet it’s already accumulated more than 350,000 signatures. If you want to add your name to the list, you can do so right here.

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.
