Summer 2020 was barren when it came to anime to discuss here. There were certainly enjoyable shows here and there but when it came to shows with strong consistent yuri vibes, barely any. We had to turn to Western animation to get a little more yuri goodness. Not so in Fall 2020. AS LONG AS THERE ARE NO DELAYS it is a STACKED season. Life permitting I will be plenty to talk about from October-January. As always there can be changes to my watchlist.
Picks based on the following charts:
Before we begin, no Manga/Light Novel spoilers. Not one word.
First up is Adachi and Shimamura. It looks like another slow burn romance, which is fine as long as the journey is consistently interesting.
Assault Lily: Bouquet. Another show about cute and sexy armored babes training to fight against alien invaders, monsters or whatever the “Huge” are. Plus it’s picked up by SHAFT, meaning viewers will pay close attention to the amount of SHAFT-tilting on the show. Hopefully there will be more than in the first half of the Magia Record anime.
Not much to say regarding GochiUsa 3 and Strike Witches 3: Road to Berlin. It’s more cute and sexy “coffee bunny maids” in the former and “flying kemonomimi soldiers fighting alien invaders but refuse to wear pants” in the latter. Be sure to watch the first two seasons, specials of each show and the SW Movie to get caught up.
D4DJ. We don’t know much about the anime yet but we were assured it’ll premiere in October. Hopefully a trailer pops up sometime in September. For now gay DJs (disc jockeys) coming after gay school idols and gay bands. Nuff said.
Dropout Idol Fruit Tart and Maesetsu! One is another idol anime but not quite and the other may be something like Joshiraku. Either way I’m very interested in both.
Journey of Elaina: From what I gathered it’s Kino’s Journey but with yuri. Of course it’ll be more than that but that’s a good enough to get hyped.
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear. Isekai starring a teenage girl in a bear pajamas who forms a pseudo-loli harem or something like that. Most of the girls aren’t infants so that’s a good sign. Plus bears rule as everyone on this blog knows.
Sport Climbing Girls! Show about sexy fit and muscle babes competing in professional wall climbing. Hopefully there will be some extreme mountain climbing too. One day my dream “all-female bodybuilding” sports anime will become a reality. Until then this will more than suffice.
Warlords of Sigrdrifa. According to someone I know the director is not yuri friendly. That may be the case but I’ll be the judge of that. From the trailers shown this has the potential to be another “Magnificent Kotobuki”. Hopefully we don’t get screwed for no good reason.

Burn the Witch: There’s a yuri yandere somewhere in the story. From what I gathered it is a manga project whose first animated presentation will be a movie. Whether this will lead to future TV anime remains to be seen. I don’t imagine the show will be super yuri but at least a really fun watch based on the trailer and manga prologue.
Inuyasha Jr and the Higurashi 2020 I want to watch by myself with no distractions whatsoever.
