January Update – Welcome to 2017 on Yaoi Playground!!!

(Edit: So glad i was wrong with my prediction and that Yuri!!! on Ice won anime for the year yay!!!)

If I am completely honest, I am not surprised Yuri on Ice lost to Re:Zero for Anime of the Year 2016 over on Crunchyroll. All of us in the fujoshi fandom and elsewhere have loved the series but there is stigma for the anime I have personally seen offline for it’s homosexual themes. (My own little sister who loves Haikyuu refused to watch it when I suggested it to her, because she said she doesn’t want to watch yaoi or boys love anime 79410and I did tell her it’s not that kind of anime) There is also the fact that because Yuri!!! on Ice came out so late in the year that perhaps it has not yet had that whole post series fandom explosion quite yet.

(Probably should sit down and finally watch Re:Zero no huh? I must admit I watched the first ep ages ago and it did not grab me so I’m going to give it another chance!)

None the less there will be a spotlight on the series this month on Yaoi Playground. I have two reviews planed for the series, one being a spoiler free review for those who have not watched it yet and might be interested and a longer in depth review on why I loved the series so much!!!

I also have a few other surprises planed for this month with two Fanfic Recs for this month as well as perhaps another list post if you guys would like another one. As for 2017, well I do have a bit of a back log of older yaoi titles in both anime, manga and beyond I am looking forward to reviewing this year, this is Yaoi Playground after all.
