What is Anime-Planet? I know what I said about Touko and Sayaka, but, oh man, Yuzu is just like a national treasure. The recommendation of the first yuri anime you can watch is Netsuzou Trap. 😀, Good question! From this point on, in Bloom we now have a Triangle romance, and those don’t usually end well.

This isn’t a “Story A,” it’s not melodramatic. It was very heartfelt and showed great understanding of LGBT-Japanese issues, and furthermore showed us that happiness exists beyond romance, lesbianism exists beyond weird and somewhat unhealthy relationships and exists even when single.
