New Yuri Anime from Comic Yuri Hime magazine

January 16th, 2014

Yesterday, Crunchyroll’s Scott Green posted a news report of interest. Kuzushiro-sensei’s Yuri gag manga from Comic Yuri Hime, Inukami-san to Nekoyama-san, is slated for a 2014 anime.

Here’s my review of the first volume of the manga. I stopped reviewing the manga after that, because other than adding additional characters, it was substantially unchanged from volume to volume. FWIW, I did actually buy and read Volume 2 and plan on getting Volume 3 when it comes out.

It’s still a school girl school life gag 4-koma manga. It still will have creepy service. Even more excruciatingly, it will be filled to the brim with atrocious name-puns.

The good news is that it’s by the creator of Kimi Tamenara Shineru. Secondly – and this is not meant to be read as sarcasm or snark, I am quite sincere when I say this – thank the gods it is not an anime of Yuri Danshi. The editorial staff of Comic Yuri Hime really seem to like Yuri Danshi and they keep putting a lot of money behind it. I was genuinely worried that their next anime might be an adaption of their slice-of-deranged-life of a Yuri fanboy manga.

So, yay for Kuzushiro-sensei.

Boo for adult female Yuri fans that are so, so, done with school life gag Yuri anime focused on dysfunctional adolescents. ^_^;

    I agree with you. I’d love for Collectors to get an anime. Or if they want to do a school story so badly why not Fragments of Love?

  2. Josei manga almost always go to live-action adaptations.

    I love Collectors, but it would make a spectacularly dull anime…as would most adult drama.

      Collectors is a comedy 4-koma like any other, it’d be fine. There’s that paper/hair pun amongst others, it totally counts :)

    More seriously, based on what little I understand of how these things get made, if it wasn’t Inu to Neko, it’d be some other ongoing Ichijinsha series, right?

    Which doesn’t leave much, virtually everything else is 1-2 volumes and I’d assume not worth having an anime to promote. Yuru Yuri already has a show, so there’s Yuri Danshi, Kimono Nadeshiko and…that’s it, right? Would they do a Citrus anime if lasted long enough?

    Shame Watashi no Sekai is finished and never had a chance of being an anime. I could have gone for the merchandise, imagine a Maasa figurine with torch, microphone and tablet accessories, Meru with thirty kinds of snacks, and graduation versions of everybody. You’re leaving money on the table, Ichijinsha!
