Oh! P.A Works, the animation will be beautiful! And if it's a girls-only show then I just can't wait!

already have it on plan to watch list. I don't expect it to be real yuri though.. bait is probably the best we could expect from this. Still, it looks like a nice anime.

tbh i never shipped two female characters in a non yuri anime except for Hibike
i just hope this is a yuri because i didn't watch any top tier yuri since YagateKimi

anyway, this is an original so we don't know much about it
but from the pv , both female leads looks so cute ( it's most likely both of them will have a lot of cute moments together) / top tier art and animation / i liked the ost too
so i'm definitely going to watch it

if this is not a yuri then it's okay , i will not hate it for that
i'll just go to a corner and cry a little for my sunk ship x)


Nobody says that it "definitely won't be yuri", it's just that it is rather pointless to immediately draw any big conclusions after the trailer, which, moreover, does not have any special yuri element to be honest.

Therefore, I opened the topic of "expectations", where people just write what they are waiting for.

Are you now completely non-ironic want to say that holding hands is doing the yuri bait show? Coming back to the fujo theme, it's almost like their tendency to see gayness in any male hugs. This is ridiculous.


It's not like there was no hint toward a yuri bait at all xD
Fujoshi ship basically any dude without exception. Kinda like the guy above.


As if the same cannot be said for the yuri fanboys with their sincere belief that any friendly, hostile, or whatever interaction between female characters is an intentional yuri subtext. Honestly, the only thing about all this that can be confidently taken as gay-ish is their look at each other at the end. Otherwise, this is another all-female show, which gets the attitude "if this is about girls, then this is yuri".

Doubt this will get full straight romance (although in one scene we see a potentiall (?) male character), but until we see the actual show, it's just wishful thinking. I remember that when Carol and Tuesday or Fairly Gone was in development, there were also a bunch of people around them who were 100% sure it would be yuri.

The promo says girl meet girl and we saw them holding hands in the first PV. That already look a lot more yuri bait than Sakura Quest.

This show was not going to be yuri bait at all, but because another expectation of yuri fanboys that an all-female show must be gay or look gay, as usually has little to do with the actual plot. Most likely it will actually be the new Sakura Quest. You just mirror the typical behavior of the fujoshi, who consistently pretend that their slash ships in the another shonen will have some chances every season.

Rikyako, Itou Miku, Azumi Waki, Lynn, such a solid seiyuu. And, with PA Works, I have high hope and high expectation for this anime.
