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. 😛
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~
Just like our Yuri Anime 2013, Yuri Anime 2014, Yuri Anime 2015, and Yuri Anime 2016 lists, this one will also feature all the yuri shows that will air in 2017. Since it’s not even 2017 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.
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.
