It may be a new year, but there’s still a lot of yuri news, and in case you haven’t heard apparently 2019 is the 100th anniversary of yuri, as Nobuko Yoshiya’s Yaneura no Nishojo was first published all the way back in 1919!
It’s pretty crazy to think of how far this genre has come, but even coming off one of the best years in yuri history, things can still get better, so raise your glass to Ms. Yoshiya, the real OG of our favorite genre~
Another News Update so soon?! That’s right! As has been the case lately, there’s a lot of news to sort through once again, so let’s get started~
First up, those of you who’ve been depressed since the completion of Saburouta’s Citrus manga can finally turn those frowns upside down, as Citrus+ launched yesterday in the newest issue of Yuri Hime.
In entertainment, sequels/spin-offs are rarely as good as their parent story, but even if this doesn’t end up being quite as entertaining as the original, it’s still more Yuzu and Mei, so no need to complain. Besides, who needs Santa when we have Saburouta giving us such a nice present this holiday season?!
EDIT: It’s official! The Bloom Into You anime will start airing in October
As if us yuri fans haven’t been getting spoiled enough, now comes a rumor that Bloom Into You will also be getting an anime adaptation! At this point, this is still unofficial, but if it turns out to be true, this would just about be the best possible news for yuri fans!
So, as decided by you guys, we ended up with three possible topics:
And as you can already tell from the title, we decided to go with the winner of the poll (and possibly the hardest to actually talk about).
Seeing as I’m a self-proclaimed master in the arts of Yuri, I think we have that part covered up pretty well. I also have the lesbian part down, though I fear that thanks to my still too few experiences (meaning that I’ve only been with one girl so far), I thought it would be best to get some help in that department. So I brought in NotATsun, a professional lesbian (:P), who will hopefully shine some light of wisdom on all the topics that I might simply not have the needed experience in.
We’ll divide this post in three parts:
Big Topics – How are lesbians usually depicted in yuri media?
Small Topics – Recurring yuri themes
What works do we think depict lesbians the most realistically?
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.
We’re back with the next round! For this one, we took the time to upload all of the remaining kiss scenes, so you can actually watch all the scenes before voting for them. Super neat, isn’t it? Thanks for suggesting it, guys~

With that said, enjoy round 3 and let the yuri games continue~
