Yuru Yuri Deceptively Sweet Yuri Anime

Yuru Yuri’s eighth episode of exceptional yuri nonsense is perhaps the funniest thus far – Chitose is the main attraction this time around as she controls the show with her “lies” and oddities.

Akkarin for the first time ever is accompanied by someone in a friendly manner in such a way it appears she will actually be prominent to the plot – unfortunately for her, she ends up having maxed out her allotted screen time during the intro-sequence. Not only that, the one alongside her was Chinatsu-chan, who now suffers the same presence-lacking fate as Akkarin.

Those two indeed do not reappear for the remainder of the episode, although with good purpose – a new character is introduced and focus is shifted to them. Simply said, it is an incredibly skillful transition of attention. Rather than poorly present Chinatsu-chan, and Akkarin (more poorly than usual anyway), they give them a comically implemented break for this episode. It is a spectacularly well thought out move if nothing else as with Chinatsu-chan still a part of the episode, the subsequent events wouldn’t have been possible.

Chitose is telling some “lies” – actual truthful statements however they all regard some odd topic and essentially are things no right-minded person would believe, how far that is from the “truth” however. One of Chitose’s mentionings included saying she had a twin – having yet to see such a character ourselves, this must be deception, is it not?

No. She successfully tricks Ayano into believing those crazed statements to be fibs yet indeed they were very much true. This prompts the episode to transition into its second phase, the focus on Chitose’s twin.

Kyoko whilst on an outing with Yui inadvertently comes across Chitose’s twin under the assumption it is Chitose – from there, as Kyoko notices “Chitose” acting unusually unfriendly, she makes a mad effort to cheer her up. All of that fails without a second doubt of course, yet it is far more than the word “hilarious” can handle in describing.

Kyoko has been a colorful character for the entirety of the series up to now, she still is of course, although seeing this new, somewhat emotion and caring aspect of her is very much refreshing. It re-heightens our interests in Kyoko whilst making her a far more fabulous character than we initially perceived to be.

Yuru Yuri sustains its easygoing slice of life attitude yet delivers it on a level of story, planning, and presentation so precise, it is profound and mind boggling. Never had one ever dared vision such a yuri series with only subtle drops of yuri added in as a secret ingredient in a mixture of humor, plot, and passion.

Assuming you’ve yet to realize, this is it. This is the greatest yuri series out there – not just yuri series however, this series is one of the greatest slice of life, comedy, or anything it attempts to be for that matter.

    I’ve been hearing a lot about Yuru Yuri lately, I guess I’ll partake in this anime just to see what all the hype and nonsense is about ja.

    Is this really considered a yuri anime though? Just because one character fantasizes and another has a hidden “admiration” for another… its not really yuri.

    Great anime though.
