This show was promoted by yuri bloggers are "serious yuri with grownups" (examples here and here), and to say it didn't live up to the hype is an understatement. I can think of at least three couples in the Sound! Euphonium franchise with more chemistry, and that's never officially been acknowledged as a yuri show.

And that would have been fine with me. It was a decent enough sci-fi/horror/adventure show as it was. But I imagine people who signed up for what was advertised were pretty disappointed.

There's been a lot of anthologies, single volumes or three volumes done lately. The only one I'd realistically hope for is Even Though We're Both Adults since I think the author also wrote Aoi Hana and Wandering Son?

5/10.

TBH I always thought Aoi Hana was overrated, but Japan seems to want "I Favor the Villainess" next which I can get on board with. #5 in this poll -- https://www.anime-japan.jp/main/ajranking/

It seems hard to go wrong with villainess (isekai) yuri but at this point I just hope its better executed than Otherside.

Sigh...at least The Apothecary Diaries came 10th...if yuri is forced to be isekai too, I'm out.

I'm on a discussion with a person in another forum. Is it true that the armored vehicle left in Kankandara forest is less agile than the AP-1?
