Pink-haired lolis make the spotlight of the eighth episode in Yuru Yuri’s second season – an installment all about Chinachu, with specific attention towards her vehement yuri tendencies and lack of artistry.
Skipping to a random point as usual, this episode of our beloved yuri escapades initiates during winter, and within the Amusement Club room – the Comiket of the season seems to be only a short period away, and Kyouko is feverishly in rush over completing her latest doujinshi work. Akkarin suggests that the other Amusement Club members offer some assistance to expedite the process – and that all goes well save for that Chinachu is present, and as one should recall from the first season, one will certainly not want Chinachu touching any kinds of illustrations.
What ensues is a struggle to keep the loli occupied and away from Kyouko’s hard work – and as a side-note, it seems doujin is truly the only subject which can keep Kyouko at a level of total seriousness.
For the most part, that works out – albeit not without a few amusing hardships, as well as some slight failure.
Nonetheless, the series continues onward, and the next event is karaoke – a Santa suited Kyouko assembles all the familiar faces, and a mixture of comical and yuri moments then comes forward. With all the main girls present, the situation is essentially as expected – being together in the same room, certain individuals react a specific way when alongside others, almost akin to chemicals in an equation. It’s the magic of yuri romance merely flourishing.
The usual is seen of Kyouko and Ayano, as well as the other obvious pairings – although the center interest remains spiraling around Chinachu and her struggle to enjoy a memorable yuri moment with her highly admired sempai.
Now despite her extensive efforts, she fails pitifully – losing out to Kyouko and unfavorable coincidence every time.
Chinachu’s ultimate goal during the karaoke bit was to essentially sing a duet with her much loved Yui-sempai – although for one or another reason each time, it simply did not work out. Although in reference to a few unrelated, yet definitely worth mentioning details, this series managed to make the matter quite novel in how it played out. Chinachu’s situation is of a concept not fresh – but Yuru Yuri seemingly foresaw every conventional outcome, and detoured around them all commendably.
Something else to point out, one will notice that the girls seem much more moe than usual this episode – particularly during the karaoke bit. Perhaps the mannerisms have been enhanced, however they’re simply all so adorable indeed – even more so than the norm this episode around.
And lastly, karaoke complete – Chinachu somehow scores a “date” with her heavily lusted Yui-sempai, and whilst Yui doesn’t totally enjoy herself, she does however receive the excessive affection of Chinachu. Indeed, by episode’s end, the loli has managed to secure some Yui cuddling time – and this leaves her exceedingly ecstatic till the end sequence rolls. That said, the ED was themed after the horrible drawings of Chinachu – showing off her fairy tale of rescuing wretched monsters from others of the same kind.
As far as entertainment goes, this is as solid as it can get – and the extra developments of cute and humorous implications are quite welcomed as well, as is the yuri content.
