Sailor Moon Crystal Sequel Announced

Featured Image -- 1191

You’ll get one chapter/episode of Haruka, Michiru and Setsuna raising Hotaru as their own (so Outers lesbian family basically), but otherwise, this one’s probably gonna be pretty dry for yuri content. And while I don’t dislike Helios (I quite enjoyed him in SuperS, and SuperS overall which is an extremely unpopular opinion but I don’t give a fuck), Takeuchi isn’t a fan of how she drew him in the original manga. So I may dislike his manga counterpart when I finally see him animated (because I have no intention of going back to the Sailor Moon manga myself anytime soon).

However, if I’m not mistaken, the Dream arc does have a scene that’s…very easy to be seen as yuri. I would rather not spoil what that is, but it has something to do specifically with a promise she made to Princess Serenity/Usagi.

But yeah other than that, you’ll have to wait for StarS in order to see more yuri, I think.

Sailor Moon 25th Anniversary.jpg

The post title says it all. In celebration of the Sailor Moon franchise’s 25h anniversary a sequel to Sailor Moon Crystal had been announced. This announcement comes as no surprise. Thing is the sites I saw reported the news as a “sequel” not the “4th season” of the Sailor Moon Crystal anime. While it’s highly likely that the sequel will in fact be the 4th season of SMC I too will report it as a sequel just in case it ends up being a movie trilogy or something like that. More details when they become available.

As far as the upcoming arc goes I heard some slightly unfavorable things regarding an adorable couple but hopefully with the direction the reboot has taken in the third season things will proceed favorably for the Yuri Nation.

The 2016 Yuritopia Classic Round 1

Featured Image -- 1174

I felt bad about voting for couples for shows I haven’t seen/finished, but I did it anyway. I mostly chose my preferred couple based on aesthetic, really.

The Yuri Nation

Sorry for being late with the tournament. Stuff to do in real life and not being able to finish as many shows as I wanted before the end of 2016 stopped this year’s tournament from starting sooner. Anyway here we are so let’s go over the rules again and then bring up what will be different this time around.

Voting will end January 20th, 2017.

What’s In A Name – Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru

Finally found this article after what feels like years of having searched for it. An excellent and insightful write-up. I was particularly intrigued by Togo and Sonoko’s namesakes, given their position in Japanese history.

I was wondering if you were up to date on NoWaYu, and could tell me about the significance of the first generation Heroes’ naming conventions, specifically Wakaba’s. I want to know if there are more connections between her and Count Nogi than there are between him and her descendant.

Anyway, considering that its been over a year and a half since this article’s comment feed has been active, I can’t say I really expect an answer back but its the thought that counts.

Yuuki Yuuna is a Hero is a story notable for several reasons, one of them being its portrayal of a semi-theocratic society. We are shown hints of the setting’s god-tree religion affecting the education system and government, and obviously religious undertones would make into the everyday lives of ordinary households and leave a mark on the naming patterns of children. In fact, every character in the show bears some mark of this religious influence.

Starting from the Washio generation:

Tougou Mimori’s name means simply “beautiful forest”.

Minowa Gin’s name means “silver”, which is formed with the “metal” and “root” radicals. The “root” reference probably doubles as an indication of Gin’s role in the group as the one keeping the other two safe.

Nogi Sonoko’s name refers to a “garden”, which is most understandable if you imagine Japan’s extensive shrine and temple gardens. As a sacred space, the gardens create a…

Miss Kobayashi’s Dwagon Maid Episode 1: Wesbian Dwagon Sweetness

Featured Image -- 1159

Okay I finally watched the first episode. I got hella Nichijou vibes, and Tohru is just too fucking cute. This show is amazing. I need to rewatch it and then wait until next week. It’ll be so painful yet so worth it. I might even read the manga if I can’t wait (blatant lies XD).

So glad I gave it a chance. KyoAni is slowly redeeming themselves.

The Yuri Nation

The wait is finally over for one of the most hyped (and feared depending on what the viewers’ thoughts are on KyoAni’s yuri fan torturing) show of the Nation in the Winter season. Let us see if we will be tortured again or not by those bastards.

Oh and just in case I will post this warning. Everyone who is caught up with the manga are requested to not mention any spoilers whatsoever or do an “anime vs manga” comparison.

121st G-View: He Is My Master

Ahhh yes this show. I must say I’m interested in it, if only because I own a volume of the manga, like the character designs, and has Shaft/Gainax’s name on it as the animation producers. Otherwise, I’m not expecting too much. But I’m sure it’ll still be fun. Plus, even if only a little bit, there’s still some yuri in this. That’s good enough for me!

The Yuri Nation

Hello and welcome to the G-Views, where creativity is respected and Dokuro-chan is rejected. The following show contains a pervy alligator, a Montana Max wannabe, a pedophile father, a brave knight in maid armor and Hades. This is He Is My Master.

Glad to see this show isn’t disappointing any of the Nation members. Will definitely watch it tonight. Monster girls saved this season from mediocrity, God bless.

OG’s Top 10 Anime He’s Seen in 2016

Featured Image -- 1129

Solid as always. Your top ten matches mine with some differences in rankings (especially since I would put Izetta as an honorable mention due to my issues with it and 3rei a bit higher on the list but also because I still have yet to finish Amanchu!, Magical Girl Raising Project and Keijo…yes I know I really gotta get on that soon lol), but overall I’m definitely on board with your picks.

Yuri/magical girl and sequel/spinoff wise I seriously don’t have any complaints with this past year. Hopefully 2017 won’t be a disappointment this year either what with Kobayashi-san Maid Dragon, more Nanoha, Symphogear, and of course, Washio Sumi and Yuuki Yuuna season 2. There may be others I’m forgetting but I know those are the big ones really.

The Yuri Nation

This will be a first for me when it comes to picking my annual favorites because usually I pick more than 10 shows I liked ending with the 5 I enjoyed most of all. This time I made a conscious effort to narrow it down to 10 and ONLY 10. The rules will be the following:

  1. No anime movies that premiered or were subbed this year. Meaning movies like The Boy and The Beast, Your Name and Harmony will not be on this list.
  2. This list will only feature anime I have finished that aired in 2016, meaning other super popular shows like RE:Zero, Yuri!!! on Ice, Drifters and even controversial ones like ERASED will not be on the list because at the time this list was made I have not yet seen them.
  3. As usual these are MY FAVORITE ANIME. This does not mean they are the best…
