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: June 2020

It’s the first Wednesday in June, which means it’s time for yet another Yuri News Update. If I missed a news story worth mentioning, feel free to mention it down below in the comments. 😛


adachi to shimamura animee

Let’s get things started with some good news. The hopes and dreams of yuri anime in 2020 have rested on the shoulders of Adachi to Shimamura for some time, so it’s especially rewarding to learn that it’s finally set to premiere in October. It’s also rewarding to see another PV, as shown below.

For reasons we’ll talk about more later on, it was worrying that this show didn’t have a set date yet, but it turns out it’s only four short months away. Even though I personally haven’t read the light novels or manga, the PV makes this look very promising, and I’m so looking forward to getting to watch an actual yuri anime again~

Anime Review: Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru

Spoiler Warning!

This anime review is brought to you by the many persistent YuriReviews readers who spammed me about this anime long enough for me to finally start watching it. Thanks, I really needed that. 😛

Story: 7.5/10 and Characters: 10/10
Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru is yet another of the numerous Magical Girls anime that so many people love, yet, it’s a little different than most of its kind.

The story starts out with the introduction of the “Hero Club”, a school club consisting of 4 girls that dedicate their time to helping out others. However, their clubs’ purpose suddenly changes when they get caught in a ray of light that transports them into what seems to be another dimension. There, they have to fight the 12 Vertex, creatures that threaten the world by attacking the Shinju (Tree of Life) that is necessary to keep our world intact.
