Valkyrie drive was an okay anime over all, the first six episode were below average, but it started to be fun after it, and the final episode was just great with how over the top it was. Yuri Kuma Arashi I drop midway watching the first episode lol. YuruYuri I have seen before, but is just not my preference. IDK what that last anime is.
Also a great yuri manga to read is Yuricam, is hilarious, but unfortunately no official released in English and only 18 chapter are translated. Warning, the series does have sex, lot of it, but not explicit.
After watching the video, the older days, yuri manga were written by women for women, empowering them. Compared to today, most yuri are fan service heavy and only serve to titillate men who are into this like a fetish.
Taka, I actually really like stuff with action and fighting scenes so those will do nicely, I wasn't completely sure where to start with yuri because there are quite a few titles. Thank you very much, sorry about not being very specific. Are these super rapey like maiden rose or a bit more mellow? Just curious, again thank you for your help in this matter Senpai.
jimeejo: Yeah, none of the shows that Taka pointed out even had rape or borderline rape scenes. Three good Yuri show that I did come across were Aoi Hana, Strawberry Panic and Rose of Versailles. I second checking our Revolutionary Girl Utena.
Try Valkyrie Drve if you want hardcore ecchi yuri rape.
Yeah, I had to review that at the start of my XIV Days of Darkness reviewing challenge, and it damn sure had yuri rape in it. Same went with Rin: Daughter of Mnemosyne (links to my review of that series), but the difference was that Rin turned out to be a really good OVA and Valkyrie Drive wasn't that great.
Weirdly enough, I'm new to the yuri genre like you. Those two I suggested are the only ones I watched. For some reason, I watched more yaoi than yuri, but some reason, yaoi tend to be hardcore than yuri.
I have seen the trends in Yuri thanks to the video posted by Wraith
In the old days like the Utena recommendation, the yuri shows had themes of girls being princes and empowering themes. It was mainly for gals.
Now today, yuri is aimed towards both girls and guys, but we have more ecchi + those moe overloaded shows that play the normal, slice of life, romance ones. I like Riddle Story of Devil since it stood out to me because it had fighting with the assassins playing a cat and mouse game. It was exciting. I haven't seen anything like that.
Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...

Dream: ...to the 2000s series.

Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.

Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.

Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.

Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.

Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.

Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.

CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...

Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys

Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.

Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
