I mean, I was certainly shipping it by the end of Future Connected

Kinda sad to see that WIXOSS got an idol anime because idol animes are what works best in the industry.

The thing about idols is that the public isn't really all that super-hungry for them, but they keep getting pushed because the profit margins for music are absurd. If you see a franchise pivot towards idols it's generally because it's dying and they want to pump more money from the remaining fans

Mai-hime

I remember liking it when I watched it, but that was a while ago. In retrospect, it's one that would have benefited from having come out more recently, since it's flaws are largely things the industry has since moved past

ANYWAY, guess who's getting a new anime? WIXOSS!

If we're at the point that that idols with giant breasts look like the best way forward it might be time to let the franchise die

More depth than I expected from a silly fetish manga

Hm, I like the central character drama, but I feel like the attempt to have a plot beyond that was a mistake. The scope is too large and our apparent villain feels like she came from a different series

Would read a full series

They debuted two days ago, and we're already seeing people ship them

New Love Live Anime trailer https://youtu.be/vUZtDcPtctU there's our protagonist

Wait, this is starting in less than a month!? I was expecting a bit more build-up here!

So, uh, it looks fine. Kinda a bad season to be dropping a cute girls series, though

I forgot how it was in the anime or other spin-offs

Anime uses PoV shots for the two or three times they have the admiral show up. Other spinoffs don't have any kind of consistency between them

Okay, next season:

So GochiUsa and Strike Witches are coming back and can probably be assumed to be as gay as they ever were

Adachi and Shimamura is based on a yuri series... I have no idea how fast the anime will be paced and thus how far the titular girls' relationship will progress, but the core of the series is a yuri relationship

Assault Lily Bouquet is a modern all-female action anime that literally has "lily" in the title. I'll be pretty surprised if it doesn't at least have heavy subtext

Senyoku no Sigrdrifa is also a modern all-female action anime, which generally means at least a bit of yuri subtext

Maesetsu is cute girls doing stand-up, apparently. With everyone conveniently paired up, it should at least be easy to ship

Ochikobore Fruit Tart is a Kirara series from the creator of Hanayamata. I didn't notice even any subtext in the handful of chapters I read, but it's definitely possible something will pop up later

I'm really not sure what to make of Hanyou no Yashahime. Female-led sequel to 00s shounen, airing in primetime in 2020. Who is this aimed for, what are it's storytelling sensibilities like? Should at least be shippable, though

Iwa-Kakeru is an all-female sports anime. From what I've seen it's pretty focused on the sports, but it does tend towards CGDCT-type character writing, so some yuri is entirely possible. ...I'm kinda expecting it to be one of the worst shows of the season, though

Majo no Tabitabi is one of those series that's basically a bunch of short stories tied together by the main character travelling. Apparently it has some recurring characters, all of whom are female. Something might happen there? Should be pretty, at least

Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear: Generic isekai, but with cute girls! Most of them are lolis, though. Even if there is some yuri, I'm not sure I'd be interested in it (also I don't have high hopes for this one in general)

As honorable mentions, Maoujou de Oyasumi has a minor character with a yuri crush, and Munou na Nana includes a girl that's very fixated on the title character. ...The first one is probably going to be a significantly better anime than the second, though

Well, that was better than how it was handled in the WN, at least. Though the real test will be if basically the same discussion happens next chapter

Huh. Well, I definitely like the art, at least

Selfcest? Or are we considering Salter her own person?

I'm excited but how long is it? Will it even come close to catching up?

Almost certainly single-cour, probably covering through the end of volume 4. There's five volumes out at the moment...

Is there going to be any "significant" progress in their relationship?

The current arc of the manga is about them realizing their feelings are romantic. So, not in this season

Before anyone gets confused, this is from the October issue, not saying that the anime is going to air in October (October's not going to be short on yuri, though)

Ah yes, the cute and charming fetish manga

You'd think there'd be a backstory for a design like this, but apparently it's just Michairu having a go at character design

Poor composition, hard to follow what's happening

If the population of that school was lowered by two orders of magnitude it'd still be exceptionally large

Lotta new material here. Works pretty well, though

Okay, read through a bit of the novel. ...I don't really like it? It's very dialogue-heavy, and paced pretty slowly. Our main couple doesn't have much in the way of chemistry, unless that's coming later

I think that's part of what makes it great. This isn't a "these two girls immediately fell in love and start making out/fucking like rabbits" kind of story. This is a story about two girls exploring magical science and navigating some thorny political and interpersonal issues, and slowly growing closer together as they do so. This isn't a story about yuri romance, it's a story that happens to include yuri romance in it.

That'd be fine if the magic science and politics were handled engagingly, but I've found most of it fairly tedious. Every scene feels at least twice as long as it needs to be
