Description: Four fun-loving schoolgirls take over the former room of a tea ceremony club for their own "Gorakubu" (amusement club).
yuri anime just the best
Why are girls more susceptible to same sex or bi-sexual orientation? Who knows, but it sure does make a good source of comedy material in the anime world"
Yuru Yuri (literal translation Easy-Going or Slow Yuri) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Namori about three schoolgirls… wait am I missing someone? Guess not. They took over the former room of the tea ceremony club (may I add how manly tea is?) to form their own "amusement club" Yea because in Japanese highschools it isn’t illegal to just take over another club room for your own amusement. I know I used to make the boy’s toilet my secret base. (It’s ok, guys doesn’t even like to use our toilets) Cause seriously which guy hadn’t secretly used the girls toilet because he can’t stand the odor in the guy’s toilet. That is until they see the huge pool of blood and get traumatize for life.
Yuru Yuri is a generic "moe-slice-of-life" anime with those moments of dialogue and acting that could be interpreted as overly homoerotic, but not as much if you know the real context. As funny as it is, the whole "X girls just hanging out and having fun" where X denotes the number of the main cast (which is normally the Four Girl Ensemble), is nothing new to the anime scene. But some people, even myself, enjoy this moment or repetitiveness.
So as the story progresses more girls join the main casts to form the ultimate Lesbian Full Cast in their hilarious mishaps. You can never have enough middle school girls in one story right? I hope I don’t sound like a pedo here…
Worry not as eventhough with the introduction of new characters, the 3 main girls are still the stars of the plot. (Seriously, I feel like I’m forgetting someone)
Art wise, on a scale of 1 to 10 on the moe-art-meter, this anime scored an 11. Seriously, if you do not even smile or give a faint grin on your face when you see their big beady, glowing eyes then you sir, HAVE NO SOUL! The character were filled of emotions. Heck, I wish I could understand Japanese so I wouldn’t have to read the subs and miss all those visual cues. Overall, the character designs makes you go Uguuuuuu~ even if you’re not a pedophile.
As for sound, definitely hands down, my favorite opening and ending theme for this season. No. Possibly for this year so far. It’s catchy, it’s upbeat, and it never gets old for me for some reason. If you get on a public bus or you’re taking the subway train and you see a guy with headphones on bobbing his head, that would probably be me listening to the opening and ending theme song. Eventhough most of the seiyuus are new or haven’t been given sufficient roles, they were able to execute their characters personalities quite well.
Characters! Because the whole selling point of Yuru Yuri is their characters!
It’s a universal rule that if you want to mention her name you must shout her name in a harsh tone. This lovable girl is the center of all the comedy that is happening in Yuru Yuri. Smart, talented, manipulative and downright annoying but in an amusing way. Her sexual orientation is still questionable though. She’s supposedly the main character but I keep forgetting there was someone there in the spotlight before her.
She plays the older sister role within the whole cast. Indepent, reliable, you know the type that end up being the "Yuri Target" by the female cast. She’s very vulnerable to jokes involving word play. On a plus point she’s a bit like a kuudere with her monotonous voice and attitude over her friends.
Cute at first sight but holds a deeper alter ego who is actually very intolerant. She’s in the centre for the love triangle between Yui and TOSHINO KYOUKO!
Well I wouldn’t put it as a triangle because it’s more like a straight line.
TOSHINO KYOUKO!—-> Chinatsu—->Yui
Her sexual orientation, though, is confirmed to be lenient towards yuri.
Other casts includes
Sugiura Ayano who is the student council president and fierce rival of TOSHINO KYOUKO! eventhough the latter doesn’t really acknowledge it.
Though, she herself might be falling in love with TOSHINO KYOUKO!
This woman single handedly taught me the power that bestowed upon people with low vision. The ability to fantasize in real time using your other senses as your vision sense is low, your other senses such as hearing is magnified. Her fantasies and nose bleed had become a running gag in the series involving Ayano and TOSHINO KYOUKO!
Himawari Furutani and Sakurako Ohmuro
Guess what’s more annoying than a tsundere girl? Two tsundere girls! Seriously, this two childhood friends forms the tsundere couple which is funny but a sight for sore eyes as well. Oh and both of them revolves around the whole "**** Gag" which is the whole Big breast vs Flat Chest.
Overall, from what I first expected from the season preview, this anime beats beyond my expectation. I’m no fan of yuri, I’ve never even watched any yuri anime before this. So it’ safe to say that even if you’re homophobic, you would still enjoy this anime to the fullest. The comedy aspect is great as it covers a huge range of variety from Comedic Sociopathy to breaking the fourth wall with the audience. Not to mention the entertaining 10 seconds running cycle between every intermission is somewhat entertaining. As the title suggest it, Slow Yuri because on a yuri scale of 1 to 10, this anime would probably score a 4 as the yuri theme is only as suggestive as the audience would imply it to be.
Seriously, I still have a feeling I left someone out. Can someone please tell me who it is?
