Yuri Manga and Anime Fanlisting

First off, I recommend anyone reading this volume to read the “Transgendered in Japan” essay by Wandering Son’s translator, Matt Thorn, before reading the rest of the volume. You’ll have a better appreciation of the context for some scenes in this…

Color me shocked. (Really; I’m not being sarcastic.) Oniisama E has been licensed for streaming. It’s viewable everywhere except Italy and Japan. Now you can watch this dark classic, which I consider the earliest yuri anime series, legally and with …

To make a decent-sized list possible, I had to use series that aren’t really necessarily yuri, but are of interest to us- a problem that I will not have with my manga list. As Erica pointed out, the pickings this year are really freaking slim. But…

Yep! It’s as good as what others are say it is!! The art is just quite breathtaking. It resembles Aoi Hana in the use of soft water colours and it’s all just very pretty. Sakura is regularly used in the backdrop. ^_^ The character designs a…

Episode 1 of Hourou Musuko surprised me. It was great, but it wasn’t what I expected.

Episode 1 starts at the end of volume 4 of the manga, with our protagonists, Nitori (who was born male and wants to be a girl) and Takatsuki (born female and wants …

I’ve been meaning to summarise what is catching my eye in the coming season but spare time has been hard to find lately!! Luckily both Yuri no Boke and hashihime has both summarised what’s coming this season. I’ll simply highlight tho…
