With sisters being the center focus of this latest episode of Yuru Yuri’s second season, the installment certainly proves to be one of revelation as much is learned regarding the prevalent yuri implications of family.
First of all, it doesn’t seem to be a skewed lesbian lifestyle for all the yuri characters – the adorable Sakurako, and her similarly cute pair of older and younger sisters, appear to have a more typical family relationship, or rather, something quite reminiscent to Minami-ke. Sakurako’s cute imouto, as well as her bishoujo counterpart, both seem to view the middle daughter, Sakurako, as a nuisance to their studying – and apparently, pester her over quite a few other items in addition.
Yet the episode unfortunately does not stick around the magnificently moe Sakurako sisters for long – besides blood related females, another subject of the episode happens to be oppai.
Himawari, the bustiest character within the series, even besting any of the elder females, is apparently gaining cup sizes on quite a regular basis according to her imouto – and this scene actually proves as a foreshadow for those to follow. The incident is that while it is certainly obvious to us, Himawari’s imouto, and of course, her best friend and yuri love interest Sakurako, that her chest is simply developing – Himawari sees that she’s gained a few pounds, and subsequently erupts into the usual unhealthy diet of starvation.
Her imouto becomes concerned as one would expect – all the while, Himawari heads over to Sakurako to pool her depression onto her friend in hopes of gaining some solution to her issue. Sakurako, however, is quite earnest despite her childish attitude and spite towards oppai – letting Himawari know that she’s simply getting worked up over unfounded worries, and that it’s likely merely her oppai which have grown.
While Himawari isn’t immediate in accepting such, she ultimately does, and it’s the truth – her oppai have expanded, and that’s essentially all there was to her needless anxiety.
As that matter is settled, the series switches focus onto some other debuting characters – one of whom happens to be Chinachu’s older rendition, and one who apparently has a vehement yuri crush upon Akkarin’s bishoujo version, heavily envying the place of Akkarin as an imouto to such a “wonderful onee-san”.
And transitioning to highlight the “wonderful onee-san” in question, it seems more as if she’s a highly disturbed individual – engulfed in incestual yuri desires to the point of being senile. Anyone who isn’t merely starting this series with this very episode should already be more than familiar with the female’s raging love for her imouto – the pseudo-protagonist of this series. And even then, it takes no more than this episode to learn that as well.
This was certainly a splendid episode overall, especially in how it brought attention upon Sakurako and Himawari once more – both of whom seem to be growing in prominence. Although it was quite a shame that the Sakurako sisters received only seconds of screentime – and preferably, there will be more older sister action in the episodes to come.
