A weird Japanese cultural thing that even the VA of Kumiko stated wasn't meant to be yuri.
Adolescence or something like that apparently.
>LOL IT WAS A PHASE ALL ALONG GAIS!!!!1
And this is why nobody takes Japanese media seriously.
It's something that actually happens though why are people even getting mad over this.
>It was just a phase
It's not a phase. Did you guys even read the interview? Yamada explicitly says that she thinks that there was nothing romantic about Reina and Kumiko's actions/relationship. How can it be a phase if neither of them were romantically attracted to each other in the first place?
There isnt a single anime coming in 2016 that we know of that has canon relationships.
If you are happy with just VERY CLOSE FRIENDSHIP THATS KIND GAY BUT NOT OPENLY GAY then I think Qualidea and that other magical girl show might qualify
Pandora is airing right now
Shingeki Bahamut next season
Magic of Stella is coming soon and so is the next season of Madoka
