An official artwork released collaboratively carries the presence of characters from both Yuru Yuri and Kannagi – serving to offer a surprisingly fitting atmosphere as the females don’t look too out of place at all.
This artwork within Kannagi’s seventh manga volume features a mix of characters with absolutely noting in relation to one another – although they manage to look quite attractive altogether nonetheless.
It appears that instead of the Amusement Club, the yuri inclined females of Yuru Yuri have assembled in what is perhaps the home of Kannagi’s leading male character, who thankfully is not in the artwork himself as that would have thrashed the mood. Unfortunately, Nagi’s nowhere to be seen either, seemingly having been afflicted by the curse of Akkarin. As for Akari, she should be grateful she’s even implied to be a living entity within this image as she’s outlined in pink off to the right.
In a manner most merciless, even though Akari is already invisible save for a few lines, she’s not only further overshadowed behind Yui, but is totally ignored by the redhead who extends her arm as if about to reach out right through Akari to get a drink from Chinatsu. Akari has the short end of the hypothetical stick, as usual – although that certainly doesn’t affect the artwork in any way as she was never particularly significant to begin with.
Nagi on the other hand is more lovable for many a reason, and she’s of course crucial to the story which she originates – thus we’re not too sure why she’s undeservingly suffering the terrible plague of Akkarin. If a Kannagi character must be turned to thin air, it should be the unlikable red haired girl who is always going to be second-rate after Nagi, and lacks any fighting chance against her in romance.
Not to mention, we’d much rather see Nagi engaging in some yuri activities than the less savory redhead.
