Yuri is My Job! is proving that yuri is still very much popular in 2022. Why else would it be getting an anime adaptation now?
Yuri as a Day Job?!
AniTV’s official Twitter account has recently posted a Tweet announcing the anime adaptation of Yuri is my Job!. You can see the key art for it above. Apparently, this yuri comedy manga will now get an anime from animation studios Passione (Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers, Citrus, Mieruko-chan) and Studio Lings. The latter studio seems to either be a new studio or a small one at this time. They don’t have a Wikipedia article, and researching them reveals that their only anime is Tachibanakan To Lie Angle, which curiously enough is also another yuri anime.
Unfortunately, that’s the extent of the information that Twitter post has about Yuri is My Job!. They don’t even have a release date for us today. However, the Tweet does have a link to the official website for the anime. The WataYuri website is all in Japanese, but if you can read it, it reveals quite a bit of information about it. Still no release date though, but you can check out the other information below.

However, under the guidance of the most graceful girl there, she can’t help but blush and blunder! Beneath all the frills and laughter, Hime feels tension brewing as she finds out more about her new job and her budding feelings…”
