As usual I announce my anime picks one month before the end of the previous season. Also as usual other shows can be included based on fans and Yuri Council members’ reactions. My coverage of shows can change based on how a show is progressing, my life schedule and my mood.
Thanks to Dim-Chan for the compilation.
Picks based on the following charts:
Citrus: This first pick is an ironic choice because despite being a MUST WATCH I have stated on several occcassions that I consider Citrus an average series at best despite its top tier status among many Yuri Nation members. HOWEVER, I’m hoping the anime version will show me that maybe this is one of those series that is best enjoyed as an anime than a manga. As long as the show makes a profit and encourages more 100% yuri manga getting anime adaptations then I’m good.
On a personal bright side, I’ll always have Harumin to look forward to.
Hakumei to Mikochi: A show about little people in the forest. My beloved is one of the lead seiyu and that’s good enough for me to give this my undivided attention…also it’s not a het-harem.
Mitsuboshi Colors: I saw the manga on Dynasty several times but never bothered reading it because I had a feeling it may get adapted into an anime someday. Lo and behold, that day has come. Anyway it looks like a solid Girls Club show.
Märchen Mädchen: This one looks like another Girls Magic Academy show like LWA and Mahou Tsukai PreCure and I enjoyed those. I’m very curious to see where this one is going. Heard from Dim-chan that it’s worth keeping a close eye on. We shall see. I noticed a dark skinned hottie among the cast so that has me really excited.
Toji no Miko: Samurai miko/priestesses/shrine maidens. Nuff said.
Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san: Ramen themed Girls Club show. I’m sold. Will most likely be a “shorts” show but still interested.
Yuru Camp: An unofficial spinoff to Yama no Susume. That’s all I need. This will please us as we wait for the highly anticipated third season of YnS.
Slow Start: Most likely will become the #1 Girls Club show of the season. If not then it’s still another GC show to look forward to.
Takunomi.: I have a feeling this will be a “shorts” show. Even so this is the “drinking” anime I was actually excited for. Don’t get me wrong. Fall 2017’s Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte kara is a pretty good “drinking” show but Takunomi.’s the one I got hyped for.
Uchuu Yorimo Tooi Basho: Girls Club about them going to the South Pole.
Nanatsu no Bitoku/Seven Holy Virtues: This was announced recently as of the date of this post. This is technically the sequel to sin: Nanatsu no Taizai/Seven Mortal Sins. and the leading lady seems to be Lucifer’s ex Michael (The one in red). Reading the plot summary in Chart 2 made me ask myself “Wait…Are they going to do what I think they are with…? Really?” If so then it sounds very interesting indeed. Also here’s hoping Lucifer and her harem will make cameos here and there.
Hugtto! PreCure: Another year, another Pretty Cure. Will the yuri power level in this entry be reasonably high too? We’ll have to wait and see.
Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-Hen. I remember seeing the show back in the day. Of the couple of shows airing on Cartoon Network LA that started with a Portuguese dub but eventually got a Spanish dub, guess which one never got a Spanish dub. Still, I have a decent memory of who everyone is and the feuds Sakura had during her quest to collect the Clow Cards…twice if I’m not mistaken. Anyway I MIGHT talk about an episode centered around “The Living Legend” if it’s worth discussing. Otherwise I’ll be casually watching this one.
Gakuen Babysitters: Reminds of Hanamaru Kindergarten and I LOVED that one. Should be an interesting show to check out when I feel like it.
Pop Team Epic: A show that’s hyped as being the pinnacle of modern day “WTF!?” goodness. I’m intrigued to see how “WTF!?” the show is/can get.
There you have it. My Winter 2018 picks.
