The latest episode of yukata yuri service anime Yuru Yuri runs through a series of hilarious segments ranging from a discussion of the proper etiquette of yuri romance, to Comiket cosplaying and festivities.
Yuru Yuri seems intent on proving it is indeed the grandest of all yuri animes and it returns week after week effortlessly doing just that. The fifth episode starts with an easygoing laugh at the expense of the always cute Akkarin.
Just as a side-note, the characters, especially Akkarin, have many different adorable variations of their names depending on whom is speaking about them – and as you can see, we like Akkarin, with two K’s for added kawaii emphasis.
Once Akkarin plays her ever-neglected role of pre-opening introduction, we then see Kyoko assembled with her seitokai yuri lover, perverted yuri fantasizer friend, and Yui. The group is planning to participate in Comiket as a circle selling Kyoko’s doujin on mahou shoujo Mikururun (the L’s are pronounced incorrectly no matter how many times you repeat the lulu/ruru sound).
As expected of this slice of life themed yuri exclusive series, hilarity exquisitely ensues once the tactical unit of yuri cuteness is prepped inside Comiket at their table. Kyoko has her minions cosplay in an effort to drive doujin sales – meanwhile, the strange seitokai fantasizer initiates the always necessary yuri fantasy intercessions.
A single issue worth mentioning in relation to these daydreams is they occasionally may seem far too abundant, as well as abrupt in how they intercede – reminding us of a failed sport service series supposedly about tennis which had more than a fair share of those. Although the magnificence which is Yuru Yuri ended up balancing out these thoughtful yuri intermissions just as we began to be bothered by them – almost as if the staff were crazy enough to actually carefully consider their own work.
Whilst cosplaying, Kyoko’s seitokai lover appears to be satisfied as she notices Kyoko is enjoying herself – and at the end of the day, all ends well for the yuri circle at comiket.
Now begins the hardcore portion of Yuru Yuri, hardcore in all aspects of comedy, yuri, and slice of life styled randomness. Chinatsu-chan is disgusted by the fact she is stuck alone with Akkarin – having been abandoned by her beloved Yui who is at Comiket with Kyoko.
A deliciously spoken conversation of yuri love interests begins proving to be awfully flavorful in appropriate appreciation. We can almost taste the comical and taboo inner fillings of the chat, or for those not familiar with fancy foods, the emotions backing the statements of the characters as they converse.
Chinatsu-chan starts speaking with Akkarin about Yui’s hobbies, characteristics, and general information as required for stalking purposes. From there, Chinatsu-chan begins to unleash her sickeningly perverted side – one which is almost disconcerting as we make note of her lolita physique.
A must mention, epically enticing yuri scene which almost slipped behind the shadows of our bloated recollection of yuri is one consisting of the two seitokai tsunderes as they begin to imagine the ultimate heroic Akkarin. It is a fantasy in which Akkarin loses the only unique feature keeping her from being a generic female anime character, her hair buns, to the evil and mischievous magical Chinatsu-chan.
As if much more needs to be said, this is pure 100% yuri at its finest. Another well rounded episode with an appropriate hint of yuri in a spherical bowl of comedy and some other secret special ingredients – even an infinite amount of cakes could not effectively capture its sweetness.
