Just like our Yuri Anime 2013, Yuri Anime 2014, Yuri Anime 2015, Yuri Anime 2016, and Yuri Anime 2017 lists, this one will also feature all the yuri shows that will air in 2018. Since it’s not even 2018 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~
Let’s start with the highlights of 2017.
The year has admittedly been good, but definitely not the greatest when it comes to yuri anime and manga, at least in my opinion. Focusing on anime, we got some fair amount of shows with yuri subtext, like Kakegurui and the second seasons of New Game! and Love Live! Sunshine!!.
Though, the great highlights were rather shows like Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon, which simply surprised us with the amount of yuri—especially for a show by KyoAni—that seriously blurred the lines between only subtext and straight up yuri content. No one was really expecting that, which definitely makes this one of the greatest highlights of 2017 for me.
What?! Another News Update in less than a week? Is that possible? Yup, it is, and it seems to be reaccuring thing in our community. Awesome!
So what is it today? More yuri visual novels maybe? Well, that would be awesome but nope, even better! Another yuri anime was announced!
Tachibanakan Triangle, or as it’s called in English, Love to Lie Angle, is a comedy manga by merryhachi, and it will get an anime adaptation in 2018.
This one is actually featured in the Yuri Hime magazine, so we know it’s gonna be good (and actually have some yuri). Though, to be quite honest, I haven’t heard of this one yet, despite the fact that the first few chapters are available to read on the Dynasty Reader. There are actually four volumes out already, and it’s still ongoing.
