As expected, I share my favorite Yuri pairings yearly for the “12 Days of Anime” thing. Of course, I am always late on this since I am so busy with stuff and less than the usual 12, as that is what I can come up with. The list is not in any particular order, of course.
Anisphia and Euphyllia (Anis and Euphie) – Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei
As expected, this is a very sweet pairing as Anis took Euphie in as her assistant after her arranged marriage fell through as Al called off the engagement for another girl, which is part of his plan that led to his downfall.
Obviously, Anis looks up to Euphie (besides her pretty appearance) for her magical abilities. Euphie eventually develops feelings for Anis as she becomes interested in Anis’ Magicology and is ultimately willing to help her. Not to mention, the moments with Anis and Euphie are really sweet.
Ilia and Lainie – Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei
When Anis took Lainie in, she suspected something with Lainie, such as having magicite in her. While Al used her for his scheme and even ripped out that magicite, it’s not too surprising that Ilia saved her by allowing Lainie to suck her blood. Of course, she is the one that is willing to let her suck her blood when she needs it. Even so, I do think they are a cute pairing.
Hime and Mitsuki – Watashi no Yuri wa Oshigoto Desu!
As expected, given Mitsuki’s cold personality towards Hime provided that they are opposites. Mitsuki seems to hate Hime because of her cute façade and not being true to herself. The funny thing is that Mitsuki was the only person she could become best friends with.
However, a series of misunderstandings of Hime lying to protect Mitsuki causes them to grow apart. That is despite Miitsuki hoping that she could mend things together when she saw Hime after so many years. At least they managed to repair things, and it’s nice to see them on better terms and getting closer romantically.
Kanako and Sumika – Watashi no Yuri wa Oshigoto Desu!
Given what happened, Kanako obviously has a crush on Hime, given that she is the only one she is close with. Of course, Sumika obviously feels conflicted as she was burned because she was left with bitter feelings after Goeido got into a relationship with introducing love into their job that involves pretending a Class S relationship.
Sumika forms a Schwestern pact to stop Kanako from making modes on Hime when she plans not to but is happy to be with Hime. This is what concerns Sumika as Kanako keeps her feelings for Hime in. Even if things don’t work out for, I have a feeling Sumika might develop feelings for Kanako as she discovers what romance means.
Kokona and Shizuka – World Dai Star
While Kokona looks up to Yae, although she already close with Noa, which got her into theater, I guess this pairing makes more sense. Shizuka is the idealized version of Kokona’s dream of becoming a World Dai Star who guides her along the way. It’s obvious this pairing will make sense, especially since the same voice actresses also voices one of the cutest pairings in Uma Musume, Rice Show and Mihono Bourbon.
Umika and Yuu – Hoshikuzu Telepath
It doesn’t come at a surprise why Umika and Yuu will be on the list. It’s one of the cutest pairings. I like how the relationship progress as Yuu helps Umika as she is the one that truly understands her feelings with forehead telepathy. This of course helps Yuu to become a leader of a hobby association while being able to hold a conversation.
Still, the moments with her and Yuu are really sweet and of course, all that forehead kisses with Umika. With Umika eventually acting flustered after Umika did a forehead kiss at her own will, it’s obvious that Yuu developed feelings for Umika as they try to achieve their dream of building a rocket to go to space and make friends with alien friends.
Haruno and Matataki – Hoshikuzu Telepath
While Matataki seems to act like a tsundere towards Haruno, but obviously Haruno is close to her. There is some nice moments between the two, especially that time when they were making a cake. It’s cute how Haruno puts an apron on Matataki. During the moment when Matataki felt down over losing the tournament, Haruno seems determined to bring her back to the team, which shows how much they care about each other. Still, it’s hard for Matataki to admit that she is close with Haruno.
Rae and Claire – Watashi no Oshi wa Akuyaku Reijou
Obviously, Rae and Claire has to make it to the list since they are a fun couple. While there are deeper reasons why Rae loves Claire, I just find Rae’s interactions with Claire and vice versa quite funny. Without spoiling too much, I do like the development of this pairing and of course, Claire defrosting and eventually returning her feelings for Rae back.
Komari and Vill – Hikikomari Kyuuketsuki no Monmon
Sure, Vill obsesses over Komari as she has feelings for her, but it doesn’t come at a surprise. They were bullied by the same person and of course Komari defended Vill when she was being relentlessly bullied by Millicent. Obviously, given that Komari rescued her and of course the feeling to make things right for Komari as she didn’t have the courage to stop Millicent, which lead to Komari to become shut in after that incident. Of course, Komari listened up as she defrosted after realizing Vill’s feelings.
On the other hand, Komari and Sakuna along with Komari and Nelia are other good pairings. Given that Vill is in it for the long game given their past, I put this above the other two pairings.
With that, this wraps up all the notable pairings from this year. While I can only come up with 9, hopefully I’ll do better next year, although there is no guarantees that we can make it to 12. Also, feel free to share your favorite yuri pairings from this year in the comments.
