Best Anime to Watch for PRIDE Month!

By Breana Ceballos

 

It’s PRIDE month everyone! A time for much needed visibility and a time to celebrate the LGBT community! I wanted to stress the importance of this time for us here at PopLurker and put together something really special for you. We’ve made a list of some of our favorite anime that you can watch RIGHT NOW on Crunchyroll or Hulu (the last one on the list), and really get into the spirit!

Happy watching!

 

Citrus

Two step sisters enter a romantic relationship with each other battling many obstacles along the way. You can read our full review here. This is a great anime for Yuri fans and people who struggle with their bisexuality will be able to identify with Yuzu. Watch as she figures out what it is she wants from Mei and they begin on a journey of self-discovery together.

 

Netsuzou Trap

Yuma and Hotaru have been friends since they were kids. Now that Yuma has her first boyfriend Hotaru becomes fixated on her, telling her that their secret encounters are “practice” for Yuma. Yuma doesn’t know what to think of all this but she can’t deny that she likes what is happening. When they are discovered by Hotaru’s boyfriend things get tense. This one is definitely worth checking out, and it’s short, about ten minutes per episode. Totally binge worthy

 

 Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid

One night while drunk and in a forest Miss Kobayashi stumbles on a lonely dragon. They get drunk and chat, she offers her a place to stay. Eventually forming a relationship with Tohru in the cutest way possible. There are many cute dragons along the way and Miss Kobayashi is the sweetest corporate tool with a fetish for maids you will ever encounter.

 

Magical Girl Ore

This one is an interesting take on the magical girl genre. Saki, who dreams of becoming an idol to impress her best friend’s older brother, is not very good at singing or dancing. She comes home one day to discover that her mother was once a magical girl and that someone needs to take over for her. Saki is the next magical girl for the area and is shocked to find out that her best friend is also a magical Girl? Not only that but her friend Sakuyo has been interested in her romantically this whole time. Things are even more complicated because the boy she likes, Mahiro, only likes Saki in her manly transformed state!

 

Love Stage!

Izumi and Ryouma are reunited after doing a commercial when they were children together. Ryouma grew up thinking about Izumi and harboring a crush on who he thought was a girl. When identities are revealed he is confronted with a reality that he hadn’t considered before. He continues to pursue Izumi as his love interest even after finding out that he is a man. This is by far the cutest Yaoi I’ve ever watched, you need to give this one a shot.

 

Sailor Moon Crystal (Season 3)

In season 3 of Sailor Moon you get a deeper more personal look at the relationship between Haruka and Michiru. The heartfelt connection can’t be denied as you look into their past of how they discovered their secret identities and their destined future together.

 

I know there are more but these are the ones I can fully recommend to you!
