Yuri News Update: November 2018

Since there was so much happening last month, we didn’t get around to posting a Yuri News Update, so that means this will be a pretty lengthy installment. You ready? Okay, let’s go~


watashi ni tenshi ga maiorita!

First up, more info has come out regarding Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita!, including when it’s set to begin airing. Mark your calendars for January, and in case you don’t know too much about it, here’s a short synopsis to get you up to speed.

One day, fifth grader Hinata Hoshino brings her friend Hana Shirosaki to her house, and Hinata’s sister Miyako, a college student, falls in love with with Hana at first sight. Miyako manages to get along with Hana somehow, but her clumsy behavior and shyness, makes Hana wary. Even so, Hana gradually opens up to Miyako, who wants to become closer to her.

After Happy Sugar Life, that synopsis is scaring me a little bit, but I imagine it’ll be kind of like Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru!, so there’s probably no need to worry. And it helps that several staff members working on this also worked on New Game!, so it has a good chance of being pretty entertaining.

Anyway, here’s the first PV.

Yuri News Update: July 2018

We admittedly don’t have much to cover this time, but the things we do have are pretty damn awesome~

So let’s start things off with the first Bloom Into You trailer:

This short trailer might only cover a mere minute, but what this shows us is so much! Not only did they reveal the voice actresses for Touko and Yuu, they also gave us a taste of this gorgeous-looking animation. This sure blew me away.

It’s not just the animation that looks high quality though, the art style in general looks pretty nice, too. The characters don’t just remind me of the Touko and Yuu we know from the manga, they really managed to bring this unique character design and art style of mangaka Nakatani Nio to life.

Okay, before I squeal myself to death, here’s the info about the voice actresses we were able to make out from the trailer.

And in case it’s been a while for you since you read the manga or if you’re completely new to it, here’s a short plot summary for you.
