Yuri Nation 4th Anniversary

Shirobako yuri

I’m Ai in this image.

It’s been this long already huh?

Four years have passed since I started blogging. Four long years of posting my ramblings and love for yuri, anime, anime girls and video games. Four long years of meeting fellow yuri fans (and some overall anime fans and fellow niche video game enthusiasts) who I will probably not meet in person in this lifetime. Four long years of meeting some people whose teeth I want to kick down their throats and have made enemies of because of our lack of agreement on anything or one of us annoying the other. Four long years of me rambling that I’m doing this for free.

Someone told me I have a lot of time to waste because of how much I blog. To that I say yes I do. However, I also say that I am happy. I am financially secure. I am living a fortunate life with very few regrets apart from how I should have changed a couple of approaches in college. I have a loving family. I have friends on and offline who understand my twisted mind. Although I say I want to hurt people I have never been angered enough to the point of wanting to brutally murder someone…yet. I do not ask for much to be happy. I am fine with offering assistance if am asked. I mentioned several times that I am a short tempered optimist but again I am optimistic.

Dunno what it is. Despite my writing a blog post explaining my love for yuri/ any other lesbian media,I still cannot explain why specifically it is that when I watch or read romance media starring girls/women who may or may not spend the rest of their lives together my heart melts whenever they show remote hints of wanting to start a romantic relationship. A passionate kiss knocks me out inside all the time. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen it done with het pairings so many times already that when I see two women fall in love it warms my heart. Thumbs up for two boys/men out there also having found love. It’s weird that lesbian romance is what gives me hope that one day I too will find the woman I will spend the rest of my life with. Until then (or hopefully beyond that) I will keep going.

FINALLY!

You like what I have to say, thanks for sticking around with me all this time and hopefully will continue supporting my madness. If you don’t like what I have to say then why are you still here? I won’t make any promises on what the future of The Yuri Nation and Anime Island will hold. All everyone can count on is that I will still be here. I’m not the most popular yuri blogger on the planet but why would I want to be? I am content being one of the happiest, despite my occasional angry outbursts, and sharing my happiness with everyone who is willing to accept it.

    -well, it’s nice to know that i got mentioned at the start of ur second paragraph. i meant to say in that one post that “u seemed to have a lot of time to use.” my bad; u seem quite active on ur posts, so i don’t mind following u. i got u on my feed, so as soon as u post something, i’ll check it out.

    -4 years blogging… well, i hope u at least have been studying or picked up studying japanese as it’s the bases of everything that is yuri in regards to anime, manga, visual novels, novels, games; 4 years… 2000-3000 words of japanese could’ve been learned.

    -i have about 4-5 years of studying japanese on and off & not even close to fluent, but as an experiment, the other day i tried watching some anime in a language i didn’t understand (chinese) and i almost cried b/c this is what it probably sounds like to ppl who aren’t familiar with japanese. i had to try and block out all the chinese voices b/c it kept getting in the way of the subtitles, which made it even more sad. & when i switched back to japanese audio, i felt more grateful for what i have. my japanese listening skills sucks and right now it sounds like listening to technical astro-physics jargon in complex english but it’s not totally foreign. i can pick out some words here and there but not the whole meaning. listening to words like 大好き (daisuki), 愛してる (aishiteru), 好き (suki)… all of which means “i love u”… being able to recognize these (especially in yuri), is very powerful.

    -after seeing ur passion from these archives from 2011-2015 on the right side of this post, what i’m trying to say is u should use that energy to learn japanese so that u can be even closer to anime, manga…especially the yuri stuff. even if ur not fluent, just knowing the basic words will make u appreciate japanese media. there’s a deeper love that’s waiting for anyone willing to pursue the language. from ur archives, u have the most important ingredient to make it all the way in japanese: love 愛 for the language.

      Oh I’ve watched enough anime over the years to catch some familiar words but still can;t read a visual novel to save my life.
      I appreciate your wanting to help by encouraging me to expand my yuri horizons by delving into RAW yuri media. Maybe one day I will take the time to periodically study Japanese like my good friend Chikorita157 did.

      I respect the hard work you put into studying the language. Your words show how satisfying it is.

    I’m pretty new in comparison to you in how long I’ve been blogging, but you give me inspiration to continue. I don’t know many otaku like me and I definitely have no one who shares my enthusiasm for Yuri and so I’m very happy that I’ve gotten to know you. I look forward to continuing our discussions on Yuri and anime in general. Thanks for giving me your support and congrats on 4 years!

      It has been a pleasure meeting you Doc. The Yuri Nation is still small but as long as we keep on fighting one day our dream of getting one or two 100% yuri shows per season and not have homosexual entertainment in general be scoffed at by many will someday come true.

    I just wanted to say Congratulations. I have only been bloging for almost 4 months now. It is hard to imagine if I will be doing it 4 years. But somehow you did it. I think that is amazing in itself that you did not give up and just continued going on and on. Although I have only been following you for a short time, I hope you keep it up and congratulations once more at reaching this 4 year mark.
