Now the second part of this spring anime 2018. Continue reading Spring 2018 First Impression! Part 2
Late to the party once again but better late than never right~
Anyways my selection for this season’s yuri anime are not as many as Winter 2018 and there are some interesting non-yuri shows. I will start part 1 with the yuri/subtext shows followed by non-yuri/subtext shows. As per usual, first impression is a 3-episode watch rule.
Exciting news to all yuri fans. First is the announcement of Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru! A comedy series with elements of yuri and lolicon mix into it. Truth be told translations for the source material is limited to only one chapter so I cannot judge the series as a whole but just reading the first chapter sold me. YES! I KNOW! People are like up and arms against this anime especially the “yuri fans” since it doesn’t take the yuri spin seriously and its loli. But who care! I am looking forward to the shenanigans between the ex-soldier woman and her employee’s mischievous daughter.
Next big news is the announcement of Nio Nakatani’s Bloom into You being adapted to anime. A friend of mine is looking forward to this and I’m sure a majority of yuri fans also feel the same way. The studio behind the adaptation also looks promising even though the only anime I watch from them are Aldnoah Zero and Re:Creator.
Overall 2018 continue to be a good year for us yuri fans. The only think that drag it down is the constant talk of *insert anime here* is garbage compare to *insert anime here*. I get that “other people have their own opinion so let them talk”-type of stuff but hearing it constantly in every forum or discussion is already too tiring and I hope this type of trend will slow down, but then again, that’s impossible.
Now my wishlist of anime adaptation is left with Murcielago, Nettaigyo wa Yuki ni Kogareru (the aquarium manga that was recently being translated), Fatal Twelve (I know its recent but it has potential!) and maybe Hina Logi or Princess Principal season 2.
Lot of potential yuri, and slice-of-life anime is coming this year and here is my thoughts on them. They are not arrange in any specific orders:
I will be really really happy if this news is real! In fact HSL is one of those manga I wish it got animated and yes, I wanted this more then Bloom into You. Call my taste horrible or hetfag or whatever, but I find myself enjoying this manga more than those drama, happy, slice-of-life yuri manga.
Now for the rant, saw a lot of ‘complains’ about this getting an anime. I mean I understand the controversy or the ‘distaste’ of the story, but by the end of the day, the MC love the other girl through and through. Its up to the audience to interpret what kind of ‘love’ it is. Also, this is work of fiction and not real. Its like those politics arguing about video games make people violent. The same can be said here.
Note that this kinds of ‘complains’ or ‘whine’ is also reminiscences to when Citrus got announce for anime adaptation and people, especially yuri fans, were upset of it. Understandably they want something that is fuwa-fuwa, with happy tone atmosphere or prefer the female characters that have no interaction with the male characters at all. In short, they want their characters to be ‘pure’ in a sense that male characters never interact or touch them.
I mean sorry people, that kind of anime exist in every CGDCT genre and even if there is that kind of yuri, it has to compete with other CGDCT anime that only has yuri subtext in it. I mean if you ask majority of audience even outside of Japan to choose between Non Non Biyori and Sakura Trick, I’m sure more people would choose Non Non Biyori.
For those who enjoy yuri such as NTR, Citrus or even HSL, then don’t worry, you are not alone. These titles may be ‘controversy’ but if you like it then don’t let others get in the way of your enjoyment. They may say you have horrible taste or whatnot, but by the end of the day, it manage to get an anime adaption and it helps propel yuri in the anime industry. Also, I don’t mean on shitting on those who legit don’t like this manga and I’m not trying to force you to love it either. Its just that comments I’m reading here and there are mostly insults to those who like the manga. Been seeing this trend since NTR, although it started with Kobayashi, I think. So if you honestly don’t like the anime, then its alright as well. Its your own opinion but shitting on others for liking the series, then that’s another story.
In other news, Murciélago anime possible now? I would love to see an animated version of Ringo! If HSL is animated, it’ll be interesting to see the reactions of non-manga readers! Imagine their surprise with the whole thing, another Gakkou Gurashi perhaps?
Geez, real life consume me so much that I forgot the existence of blogging. I remember I making this site for the purpose of blogging anime and stuff, but soon learn that it wasn’t as easy as I think. Hence why I admire those bloggers who updated their content consistently. But I’m slowly learning the ways of anime blogger and though this blog might not focus much on them, I would still love to post some anime related stuff particularly yuri.
About winter 2018 anime, Continue reading 1+ Year Later…
Another one of my most anticipated anime of the season. Although manga adapted to anime isn’t suppose to be a surprising thing, people are probably more shocked that of all studios, Kyoto Animation would adapt it. I honestly didn’t believe it at first…until I read the announcement.
