Yuruyuri 8 spins me right round baby right round

Either way, Ayano will end up in doujinshi!

 

Chitose and Chizuru – what a sister combo! It’s just f’ing awesome that Chitose and Chizuru both fantasizes like crazy. And I feel like Ayano, spinning round and round trying to wipe their bodily fluids off their faces!

Wow! That imagery was so wrong! But that’s part of what I like about this show, cheesy and not afraid to be cheesy, and never forgets not to take itself serious at any moment. Most important of all, it’s (bad but good) chicken soup for the Otaku soul!

It simply caters to me and others like me and it throws reasons out of window, and does it with energy and vibrancy, how can I not love it? All the yuriness leaking and dripping from all corners of the screen and yet not obnoxious or overtly sexual, it’s the perfect summer show for me to chill out,  I say, “why not”?

And episode 8 is actually pretty funny. GREAT!

Watch it here at Crunchyroll.

Yuruyuri – getting it right like no one else’s business

Excuse me while I take my glasses off…

(fantasizing and nose bleeding and making a river of nose blood…)

Wow, OK. I almost died there! (Tissue, tissue…) But yes, watching such a upbeat show with awesome chemistry, not to mention having cute girls falling for each other will do that to ya. If you love yuri. It’s a great show for girls (lesbos) and boys (lesbos at heart???).

Yes, you can forget about the plot. Yes, you can throw common sense out of window. And oh yes, I wanna see Kyoko push Chinatsu-chan down and give her a wet, sloppy tongue kiss. But no, if you think this show is really like the fantasy I described, sorry but you’d better go find something else. That is actually not the reason why the show is fun.

It’s the chemistry, stupid. When four girls are having a great time (get your f’ing mind off that), chatting, walking around, doing stuff and just living their high school live without a care…well, you know, just hanging out and being natural, something charming happens. And you know, adding my favorite anime element, GL, into the mix, really makes the show go boom!

When in fact, most of the time it just goes breezing by. I mean, there are no major moments of passionate speeches, no strict catholic school manners and caste system, no serious pursuit of anyone, and for all intents and purposes, no real substance. However, it still succeeds in making me wanting to watch new episodes, and listen to the OP hundreds of thousands of times. When a show can do that, it’s doing something right.

I suck at this review thing, so this goes into the editorial category. TBH, there isn’t any solid and powerful substance like in unrelated shows like Claymore or Kara no Kyoukai (wow, the levels are totally different), so I can’t really put out a quality review article, either. But the bottomline?

This show works, folks. Unless you demand powerful substance (like on heavy days), great plots (and maybe twists) and black hole deep character developments, and hate yuri, you should give this one a try. After all, a light-hearted yuri show with neutron star heavy and solid stuff really isn’t worth watching, in my NEVER HUMBLE opinion.

Life is heavy. Go light!

BTW, a random find for pics turned up this site, which offers a great review for this show. I got my the screen cap from them: Seventh Style’s review on Yuru Yuri episode two

Kuttsukiboshi OAV 1 Review

Primastea, the anime studio that created and distributed Training Together and Sleeping Together, has released a delicious yuri title, created by one guy (of course it’d only be a guy). The story is about the risky adventures of two high school girls during summer. The story has one twist; one of the two girls has the ability to move things with her mind (THE FORCE).

A good story has devices that work; a medicore story has conveniences that just happen; I believe this story is the latter. Buuut, whoever’s reading my article is not looking for an in depth and detailed analysis of story plots, devices as well as the merits of using them in the right places without failing (wut). So let’s get to the goodies.

You can get the characters’ names by searching through ANN or Wikipedia so I’m not going to bother with them. When I first set my eyes on the show, it struck me that the shapes of the heads of the girls looked oddly shaped; kinda squashed, in fact. I could tell it was a one-person-effort on a good computer, because the drawing is consistent. But the production value is also low, hence the odd head shapes as well as the not quite harmonious eyes and facial features. But there was nothing particularly unpleasant about them. Eh.

Nothing is wasted on any elaborate setup; the story gets the girls together right away. We get some nice girl on girl action with plenty of kissing, saliva swap and all that. Did I mention that the body proportions were kind odd? Oh and yes, the Force. The Force to break apart the necklace that consists of two star-shaped metalic things locked together. Of course, you know that’s going to come apart at the end of this episode, right? Since it’s a two-part OAV.

Captain Obvious has been screaming his/her lungs out miles back. Being a Yuri fan, this passes my test just fine. But other than that, I can’t remember anything that would earn high merits from me. Check it out  if you like.

P.S. Oh and yes (YES), one of the girls wears nothing underneath her school uniform skirt! Wonderful! Except we don’t get to see ANYTHING!

P.S. 2 – I didn’t realize that this show counts as a fall 2010 show.
