SynopsisAfter a year in grade school without her childhood friends, first year student Akari Akaza is finally reunited with second years Yui Funami and Kyouko Toshinou at their all-girls' middle school. During the duo's first year, Yui and Kyouko formed the "Amusement Club" which occupies the now nonexistent Tea Club's room. Shortly after Akari joins, one of her fellow classmates, Chinatsu Yoshikawa, pays the trio a visit under the impression that they are the Tea Club; it is only once the three girls explain that the Tea Club has been disbanded that they can convince Chinatsu to join the Amusement Club—a group with no purpose other than to provide entertainment for its members.
Based on the slice-of-life manga by Namori, Yuru Yuri is an eccentric comedy about a group of girls who spend their spare time drinking tea and fawning over each other, all while completely failing to even notice the supposed main character Akari amongst them.

"Why are girls more susceptible to same sex or bi-sexual orientation? Who knows, but it sure does make a good source of comedy material in the anime world"
Yuru Yuri (literal translation Easy-Going or Slow Yuri) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Namori about three schoolgirls... wait am I missing someone? Guess not. They took over the former room of the tea ceremony club (may I add how manly tea is?) to form their own "amusement club" Yea because in Japanese highschools it isn't illegal to just take over another club room for your own amusement. I know I used to make the boy's toilet my secret base. (It's ok, guys doesn't even like to use our toilets) Cause seriously which guy hadn't secretly used the girls toilet because he can't stand the odor in the guy's toilet. That is until they see the huge pool of blood and get traumatize for life.
Yuru Yuri is a generic "moe-slice-of-life" anime with those moments of dialogue and acting that could be interpreted as overly homoerotic, but not as much if you know the real context. As funny as it is, the whole "X girls just hanging out and having fun" where X denotes the number of the main cast (which is normally the Four Girl Ensemble), is nothing new to the anime scene. But some people, even myself, enjoy this moment or repetitiveness.
So as the story progresses more girls join the main casts to form the ultimate Lesbian Full Cast in their hilarious mishaps. You can never have enough middle school girls in one story right? I hope I don't sound like a pedo here...
Worry not as eventhough with the introduction of new characters, the 3 main girls are still the stars of the plot. (Seriously, I feel like I'm forgetting someone)
Art wise, on a scale of 1 to 10 on the moe-art-meter, this anime scored an 11. Seriously, if you do not even smile or give a faint grin on your face when you see their big beady, glowing eyes then you sir, HAVE NO SOUL! The character were filled of emotions. Heck, I wish I could understand Japanese so I wouldn't have to read the subs and miss all those visual cues. Overall, the character designs makes you go Uguuuuuu~ even if you're not a pedophile.
As for sound, definitely hands down, my favorite opening and ending theme for this season. No. Possibly for this year so far. It's catchy, it's upbeat, and it never gets old for me for some reason. If you get on a public bus or you're taking the subway train and you see a guy with headphones on bobbing his head, that would probably be me listening to the opening and ending theme song. Eventhough most of the seiyuus are new or haven't been given sufficient roles, they were able to execute their characters personalities quite well.
Characters! Because the whole selling point of Yuru Yuri is their characters!
It's a universal rule that if you want to mention her name you must shout her name in a harsh tone. This lovable girl is the center of all the comedy that is happening in Yuru Yuri. Smart, talented, manipulative and downright annoying but in an amusing way. Her sexual orientation is still questionable though. She's supposedly the main character but I keep forgetting there was someone there in the spotlight before her.
She plays the older sister role within the whole cast. Indepent, reliable, you know the type that end up being the "Yuri Target" by the female cast. She's very vulnerable to jokes involving word play. On a plus point she's a bit like a kuudere with her monotonous voice and attitude over her friends.
Cute at first sight but holds a deeper alter ego who is actually very intolerant. She's in the centre for the love triangle between Yui and TOSHINO KYOUKO!
Well I wouldn't put it as a triangle because it's more like a straight line.
TOSHINO KYOUKO! ---> Chinatsu --->Yui
Her sexual orientation, though, is confirmed to be lenient towards yuri.
Other casts includes
Sugiura Ayano who is the student council president and fierce rival of TOSHINO KYOUKO! eventhough the latter doesn't really acknowledge it.
Though, she herself might be falling in love with TOSHINO KYOUKO!
This woman single handedly taught me the power that bestowed upon people with low vision. The ability to fantasize in real time using your other senses as your vision sense is low, your other senses such as hearing is magnified. Her fantasies and nose bleed had become a running gag in the series involving Ayano and TOSHINO KYOUKO!
Himawari Furutani and Sakurako Ohmuro
Guess what's more annoying than a tsundere girl? Two tsundere girls! Seriously, this two childhood friends forms the tsundere couple which is funny but a sight for sore eyes as well. Oh and both of them revolves around the whole "Boob Gag" which is the whole Big breast vs Flat Chest.
Overall, from what I first expected from the season preview, this anime beats beyond my expectation. I'm no fan of yuri, I've never even watched any yuri anime before this. So it' safe to say that even if you're homophobic, you would still enjoy this anime to the fullest. The comedy aspect is great as it covers a huge range of variety from Comedic Sociopathy to breaking the fourth wall with the audience. Not to mention the entertaining 10 seconds running cycle between every intermission is somewhat entertaining. As the title suggest it, Slow Yuri because on a yuri scale of 1 to 10, this anime would probably score a 4 as the yuri theme is only as suggestive as the audience would imply it to be.
Seriously, I still have a feeling I left someone out. Can someone please tell me who it is? read more
Hai! Yuru Yuri review, hajimaru yo~!
“Meh, here’s another god damn moe blob slice-of-life. I don’t understand why people like shit like this…”
If this is your mindset, then even without saying it, you know you should pass up on the offer; however, if you have do have an interest in slice-of-life anime, comedies, or shoujo ai (You should note that shoujo ai is not a major genre. It doesn’t have as much yuri as you would expect from its title), then go for it. I started watching Yuru Yuri thinking it would be fantastic, and do you know how it turned out? Yuru Yuri absolutely amazed me by how it was more than fantastic, it was glorious! I do not even remember the last time I have laughed so much. I know that I laughed in every episode and I loved every minute of it. Do you know what else? I am actually quite sad that the show is over, but as they say, “all good things come to an end.”
What is anime? Anime is a form of entertainment. If you find anime unentertaining, maybe you should pick up another hobby (I’m looking at you, Mister “I rate everything 5s and below”) and think about it. Next question: Does entertainment need things like “plot”, “development”, or “climax”? The answer is no. Entertainment is something that entertains you. It is most does not have to have any of those things. Recently, many anime watchers are too stuck up in their ideals that all slice-of-life shows are bad because they lack a plot. I can only reply by saying that slice-of-life entertains me to no end. Tying this all back to Yuru Yuri, I can clearly say that Yuru Yuri gave me such an abundance of enjoyment that I can only agree that Yuru Yuri is indeed a good anime.
So does Yuru Yuri have a story? Does Yuru Yuri have development? Does Yuru Yuri have a climax? It probably does not more than it does, but does that stop it from being entertaining? You can bet it does not. If you think you could enjoy Yuru Yuri, if you are not a slice-of-life hater, you will enjoy Yuru Yuri. If you watch the beginning of the first episode, you may think it looks exactly like a stereotypical slice-of-life, but don’t be fooled! That opinion will change very quickly! Every episode made me laugh. Some episodes made me surprised, some episodes left me shocked, and some even left me sad. Yuru Yuri can definitely bring out all of these emotions and more, but still have you smiling at the very end of each episode.
Opinions are always hard to form on art style and quality. You can hate it, love it, or don’t mind it. If you’re like me, art doesn’t play that big of a role and you’re excepting of most art styles. So how is the art style for Yuru Yuri? It’s fantastic to me. The character designs are pretty darn cute and the animation flows nicely and sometimes reminds me of Gurren Lagann. Art actually takes a big role despite being your typical anime. The art switches to fit the mood, and in one episode in particular, the art is definitely interesting… I won’t explain though, as I don’t wish to spoil the fun, but it definitely left me laughing. Bottom line? The art style is cute and definitely fitting (The facial expressions always make me laugh), and the animation certainly flows smoothly.
And what do we have for characters? Surprise, it’s your typical four cute girls doing cute things, right? Yes and no. If you continue to watch the show, there’s only three main characters… no wait… uh… In any case, there are more than just your four main characters. We also have the four members of the student council that frequently (almost every episode, so they might as well be main characters) appears and interacts with your four main girls who are members of the Amusement Club. Our lovely protagonist is Akari, who appears at the start of each episode, actually has the least amount of presence. You may think it’s a bad thing, but it’s not because that’s the joke. It’s referenced to in every episode and it’s a genius joke that never ceases to make me laugh. If we were to name the true main character, it would most likely be Kyouko, our hyperactive and fearless leader. She’s hilarious and makes everything enjoyable. Yui, her close friend, plays the straight man and gets embarrassed easily leading to very laughable situations. Chinatsu, our typical pink haired character, has a somewhat nasty personality, but her cosplay and hilarious art makes up for it. Finally, we have our student council members who are recurring characters for each episode. Ayano, the vice president, has a love interest, the most prominent source of Yuri in the show, with Kyouko. Ayano’s a bit of tsundere making her a likable character, but she also has a hilarious way of speaking where she will put the first syllable of the word at the end. Next, we have Chitose who has nosebleeds and is fond of KyoukoxAyano. Her twin sister, Chizuru has a drooling obsession for ChitosexAyano. Chitose has much more of cheerful personality in contrast to Chizuru who is cold. Chitose has much more aire time than her younger sister does, though. Finally, we have the two first year members of the student council, Sakuraku, who is a “baka” tsundere, and Himawari, who is the breast/ojou-sama factor. Hilariously, Sakuraku and Himawari are tsundere for each other leading to endless hilarity. Furthermore, the creator of the series went as far as submitting a marriage proposal under their names. Truly, that’s genius!
Yuriyurarararayuruyuri~ The OP and ED are hilarious and are more of an acquired taste. If you don’t like them, you’ll either end up finding them annoying or end up loving them. I personally find the use of the anime title in any OP genius. The soundtrack was fantastic, there wasn’t any piece of music that made me want to kill myself; furthermore, the music smoothly fits each scene to ensure the viewer receives the right emotions. And how about that voice acting cast? First, we have the pro, Toyosaki Aki (Chitose), returning for another voicing role as well as another well-known voice actress, Fujita Saki (Ayano), who is famous for Miku’s voice if you didn’t know; however, the four main characters are all voiced by fairly brand new voice actresses who are only taking on their first or second roles. And how did it turn out? These girls did a fantastic job. Their voices were brilliant. I can absolutely see them, Ootsubo Yuka (Kyouko) especially, rising to the top in the future because she did a marvelous job.
So did I enjoy this series? You can sure bet I did. And you know? If you have any interest at all, you’ll enjoy it too and end up laughing hysterically! I promise. To those of you who have actually stuck around to the end of this review, I thank you graciously for taking the time to read it. To those of you who are reading this after finishing Yuru Yuri and disagree with me, I only wish you tell me a few things:
Tell me you didn’t laugh when you saw what was in Akari’s sister’s room in episode one.
Tell me you didn’t laugh when Akari is totally blocked/loses her presence in the beginning of the episode three.
Tell me you didn’t smile at the Higurashi reference, or tell me you weren’t shocked at the sudden development in episode five.
Tell me you weren’t scared as hell in episode six.
Tell me the presence jokes don’t continue to make you laugh in episode ten.
Tell me you didn’t almost cry in episode eleven.
Tell me you didn’t enjoy Yuru Yuri. read more
“Yuri your way to success! Vol. 1” -Now with footnotes!
Approximately 12 years ago, we were introduced to a certain J.C.Staff series about a girl from Osaka and her five friends. A couple of years latter, KyoAni presented to us a self-entitled otaku and her friends: the twin-sisters and the smart-but-clumsy bishoujo¹. Those stories would go around these girls and their (barely average) easygoing high-school paradise.
Interesting? Entertaining? What is the point? It doesn't really matter, deshou?
It just happened that the community saw it was good, the industry saw it was profitable, and from that on, we started watching shows about cute girls doing cute stuff for no apparent reason (both us and the cute girls).
Oh... the story! Yuru Yuri main plot is the daily events of Akari, Yui, Kyouko, Chinatsu (don't forget to add the -chan!). As middle-school students without a serious goal to achieve, YuruYuri focus on showing these girls having... fun! As the opening song itself explain "My real job is to 'student'! What's with that?" so all the key events of this series are pretty predicable and are related somehow to their school/hang out activities. The typical school slice-of-life.
But this isn't the real reason why 90% of us watches it anyway.
I bet you interpreted “fun” on the previous paragraph in a malicious way, huh?
While those easygoing and relaxing events of their daily life would give a fair amount of entertainment, seeing cute girls expressing their affection to each other in a PG-13 way is also pretty entertaining! And perhaps the key part of it: delivering such a thing without the inclusion of a douche male protagonist neither having to label the series as he-he-hentai! is what draws the attention of crowds to it. That said, straight from the first episode, it becomes clear that "Yuri"² moments are one of the key components of Yuru...YURI storyline.
Besides from being astonishingly cute and having these girl-love moments, the series strongly bets on their visual gags, practical jokes and references as save-points, keeping the viewers from being bored during long scenes or dialogues. A proof that it works can be easily found online, it's the amount of internet “memes” that were created from scenes of YuruYuri.³
Anyway, I digress.
There's no point into further developing this topic. Someone who is reading this didn't got here by accident and most likely have a backlog on series like this. If YOU happen to be one of these people and is now nodding in agreement, the reviewer thanks you for cooping with it. *brofist*
Following the same idea of the story, characters of YuruYuri are what one would expect of a show about easygoing school-girls. In a nutshell: They're patterned.
We have the clumsy, resident airhead MC; the admirable, dependable senpai; the polite, dependable "notice me senpai!" kouhai and finally the over-hyped, loose cannon senpai.
Not to mention they are all, obviously, CUTE.
Why are they always four? ...who is producing this, anyway!?
Oh, not to be forgotten, there are also the often forgotten supportive characters! They are there to add a bit of spice to the overall sweetness, some even have a separated story arc just for them which is great considering the flow of the story since it helps to keep the attention level. To be honest, these characters even get more screen-time than a certain MC ...you'd find out sooner or later.
Along the story progression, some other characteristics of theses girls become easy to notice and the classical tsundere/yandere/dandere⁴ action finally shows up.
Hahi, That was it!? Actually, there isn't much to digress about... giving a further explanation on these characters would spoil the first two episodes and completely ruin the mood. But still we want you to believe this is character driven so.... can we pretend we explained why, and you pretend you got it? *pshhh! No mod's gonna see this!*
In the era of moe, what isn't moe is a pagan non-believer!⁵
The artwork! Oh yes! *nosebleed* did I already mention it is... cute?
What kind of reviewer describes every aspect of the show with one single word?
Well, watch it and then we can discuss.
Just like its ancestors mentioned in the beginning of this review, YuruYuri's artwork is simple but well colored and surprisingly detailed at close ups. The “moe” factor is obviously part of it, which means, you won't find a character that is “ugly” at all.
Worth mention: animators did a very good job with characters' eye design. They doesn't have that artificial feeling to them neither artificial lightening, which makes it really fit the overall coloring.
yuriyurararara yuruyuri yuriyurararara yuruyuri yuriyurararara da-i-ji-ke-n!
Ain't I missing a “Kyarun!★~”!?
It doesn't takes much to create a OST for a slow paced school slic- *stabbed*
Still, it wouldn't be a lie ...to some extend.
The OST really matches the pace of the story, meaning, we get lot of relaxed synthetic instrumentals AND some funky remixed opening/ending. If you think you've heard these songs before, it's not a problem at all. Since this kind of series always use the same tempo and arrangement for their songs, sounding similar is just part of ride. Both the OP and ED are also performed by the main characters' seyuu-tachi. They're at the same time hilarious and addicting... during the first 5 episodes. Later on it gets really annoying and you'll just skip it all together.
Overall, YuruYuri is way more enjoyable than it seems. Really.
Not because it later turns into a full ecchi yuri R+ hardcore anime (!?), but because it manages to -somehow- make you laugh for 288 minutes. Who would imagine a school slice-of-life about pure teenager girls could be this fun? I wouldn't.
So, if you're wondering about watching or not, accept the challenge and get started on it already. The entertainment value may vary from person to person, however, it will absolutely manage to take a laugh from you, even if it's just with a short Higurashi⁶ reference (Heh, is that a glace of curiosity?) or a quick reference joke with the YuruYuri Akari x Aria Saga Akari and her signature expressions "waaay!" "hahi!".
Secure your loli and prepare for impact! A furious ride into the amusement world of these girls is about to begin!
¹ – extremely beautiful, cute, amusing, girl. Notorious examples: Anything Key/Visual Arts produces in collaboration with KyoAni.
² – Yuri is a modest synonym of Shoujo Ai, girls love, lesbianism, girl-on-girl action, etc.
³ – Seriously, YuruYuri related memes were all around /a/ by the time it aired. Ask Mr. Google.
⁴ – Japanese slang used to describe one's characteristics. (e.g: the tsundere is the girl who is violent (tsun) but loving (dere) towards the one she cares about.
⁵ – Yes!!! YuruYuri is 100% MOE, meaning, they can't possibly be less cute. UrbanDictionary gives a pretty neat explanation: “Moe is when your heart gets a boner.“.
⁶ – Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. Cute series.

I'll just add the obligatory disclaimer now. This is my first review so I hope I've done it right.
If you've seen anything like Lucky Star or perhaps K-On then you're no stranger to the "Cute girls doing cute things" genre that has been shorthand called Moeblob anime. Yuru Yuri is the same as those except there is one difference. Everyone in this anime is by some degree wanting to do various sexual things to the same sex.
Lets start with introducing the basic cast. From the left in the picture up top we have Funami Yui a sort of Tomboy and Responsible character. She's close friends with Toshinou Kyouko and Akaza Akari. Next is the Blonde Toshinou Kyouko, she's a wild sort of character but ultimately Yui manages to keep her in check which kind of helps when she tries to molest Akari or Chinatsu. Akaza Akari is the anime's main character I guess however she suffers from not being able to stand out very much and ends up being ignored. She's a year younger than Kyouko or Yui but that hasn't stopped them being friends. And lastly is Yoshikawa Chinatsu the newcomer to the group who admiration for Yui touches on romantic feelings while rejecting the many advances Kyouko tries to make towards her. Other characters include the student council which includes the vice president who has a deep rivalry with Kyouko but is in fact just wanting to be her friend(Can you say Tsundere), a girl who enjoys immersing herself in lesbian delusions of the vice president and Kyouko in various risque situations and two girls who fight between themselves for the position of Vice President however they really appreciate eachothers companionship(Once again Tsundere)
The art isn't bad but it's not good either. As common for moeblob characters they have large heads and absurdly big eyes.
The Music is pretty generic but for some reason the Opening theme is quite catchy. I found myself quickly humming along to it
Lets face it there's little to no plot in this show so if you're going to be watching it you'll be watching it because you either enjoy the genre or because you want something to just sit down and enjoy without thinking too hard. It's for this exact reason that I think I myself enjoy Yuru Yuri so much as I have enjoyed A-Channel in the previous season.
Yuru Yuri is like K-On with more characters and a giant love polygon. Very similar comedy and cuteness.
Both centre around a painfully cute group of girls and their often silly, always cute activities in their school club and outside of it. Yuru Yuri demonstrates an awareness of the girls love subtexts that tend to pervade all-girl slice of life school series, but it's fairly tame (at least for something with 'yuri' right in the title!) so the differences are fewer and subtler than you might expect.
So similar characters and plot but more ecchi things.
Cute schoolgirls enjoying their after school activities,characters are very similar,YY is just like K-On! but without music genre and with more girl on girl action
Story centers around a group of girls with their daily life
-both is all about friends and friendship
-both are of comedy & school life
-both has lovely light-hearted art and character designs
a story about pretty girls who formed a club where they usually drink tea :)
both are funny & entertaining but there are some shoujo-ai things in Yuru Yuri.
Yuru Yuri is like K-ON! just without the music genre. Both are about a group of girls and both have a "tea" theme going on. Even the characters have similarities with K-ON! characters.
Crazy school (and not only) adventures of the group of the girls. Similar protagonists appearance. Each of girls are unique in terms of behaviour.
Much like K-On, Yuru Yuri focuses on a group of girls and their club. Just like this anime, it is filled with cute and funny moments, along with a group of endearing characters. Don’t get scared by the title, most of the ’yuri’ only serves as a joke.
Comedy with girls on a after school club, and stuff...
Both Contain An All Female cast going threw school, and are lighthearted and funny.
Both of these animes have their female lead protagonists and no male characters at all. Cute girls hanging around in school, having fun together. Both of these shows are amazingly funny.
Both series feature a group of girls doing fun things at a school life setting with many humorous moments from the cast.
Both series has a general feeling of lighthearted comedy and some drama.
Both series consists of a club with the girls and are generally a fun watch for some great laughter.
School life,club activities,no romance (cause both of it taking place in an all girl school),a lot of funny chit chat,4 girl as a main character (well,actually it's 5 in k-on with azusa but it start with 4)
Main characters in both series are girls sharing lots of their every-day activities. A lot of comedy in both series as well
In both clubs they nearly actually do something, just wasting time on random topics and snacking all the time.
Each club consists of 4 female members (in K-On! it's 5 later on).
That randomness is what make both animes funny and enjoy able.
Sorry, I don't speak english.
Acho que quem gostou de K-on vai gostar muito de Yuru Yuri, pois os dois falam sobre um grupo de garotas, é um "slice-of-life" e tem bastante comédia. Simplismente amo os dois, se você gosta de K-on provavelmente gostará de Yuru Yuri!
K-On and Yuru Yuri are very similar, both go to all girls school and enjoy club meetings, having fun and still gives you that warm feeling inside. Very good slice of life anime, cool to relax and enjoy.
Cute girls doing cute stuff. If you like slice-of-life anime's, this is probably for you
-Both follow a group of schoolgirls and their experiences.
-Both are light-hearted and often have many cute moments.
-One is simply about girls having fun while the other is based on a light music club, though this does not detract from the moe and humor at all.
Theyre both cute as hell shows, the only reason you might not like both of these shows is if you dont like the light/silly yuri references. Yuru Yuri means 'light yuri' theres nothing too extreme and it is far from the focus of the show.
yuru yuri and keion are both set in highschool clubs, and are equally as funny.
although yuru yuri has some romance between the girls and the keion characters do not.
Similar art style and similar humour. The character types are similar also, Yui Funami like Mio Akiyama, Kyoko Toshinou like Ritsu Tainaka, Chitose Ikeada like Tsumugi Kotobuki etc. K-on! has less yuri content
Visual similarity is the first thing people will tell you when you ask them why x show and y show is similar, because it's what you saw. Such is always the case with fellow all-girls, somewhat yuri anime.
Yuruyuri, serialized in comic yurihime, is, of course, highly lesbianated. Teenage male audiences in general will find nothing wrong with this show. And even put aside the visual, Yuruyuri itself has some witty-funny dialogue and deserved to be judged by its content and not just visual. But there are people who will totally convinced by visual alone to watch or skip something, and I can't blame them, it's just basic human reaction.
Yuyushiki, serialized in mangatime kirara, is recommended for people with a taste for heavily-dialogue anime that features a lot of jokes, puns, and funny conversation that isn't found in real life. Maybe you used to have such conversation sometime back in high school, if so, this show is sure to make you go all nostalgic about old friends and times younger you spend with them. Also, despite being all girl with recently-popular moe visual, it's not as lesbianated as Yuruyuri and I think straight girl will not be annoyed as much.
There you go. Yuruyuri is ultimate fun time for people who don't mind their sexuality. Yuyushiki is more neutral sexuality-wise and not as visually distracting, so you can gun for Japanese listening practice or whatever.
Notice: I mentioned a lot of sexuality and gender stuffs in my review because sex-sale is bread and butter of half the anime in the market and I think you should know about it.
In both shows, a group of girls join a club that has no members and much of the humor is based on how the characters interact with each other.
Also, the voice actresses for Yuzuko and Yui play Chinatsu and Yui in Yuru Yuri, respectively.
Cute girls doing random things. And beware - these things are RANDOM. Lots of laugh.
Yui is alot like Yui. And Yuzuko is a lot like Kyouko.
Also there is the slice of life.
All belong to the same club.
3-4-5 girl ensemble.
Cute character designs.
Cute MOE moments.
Both series involves a group of young girls in a club who does random things in their daily lives. Those activities ranges from anything and usually involves humor, drama, and again..randomness.
Both series' characters has cute designs that also follows a slice of life format. They are also lighthearted and offers hilarious moments in each episode.
Two of the voice actresses also play characters in their perspective series.
*the gorakubu voices yuruyushiki characters and yui from yuru yuri is this yui too they are very much similar characters
*yuruyurishiki has cute girls who probably want to kiss eachother, yuru yuri has cute girls who definitely want to and sometimes do kiss eachother
*true to their roles the character with chinatsu's voice in yuriyushiki can not keep her hands off of yui-chan but i think in yuyushiki this pairing is much more shippable than it is in yuru yuri
This are both stories about high school girls having unused club room for they own. Both are comedies with cute characters which you will like from the start. Both series are super cute and funny.
Both Yuru Yuri and Yuyushiki are slice-of-life comedies concentrating on a number of girls. They both involve these girls in a club that does nothing, and it turns mundane situations into jokes. They both also have a number of yuri jokes in them higher than the average slice-of-life anime, yuri jokes being the point of Yuru Yuri actually, though they appear about once an episode in Yuyushiki.
Both are about 14 to 15 year old girls, their school lives, and yuri. Both are very funny, at times heartwarming, and always cute and moe to the max!
Same type of humor, though YuruYuri's humor is more "everywhere", and focuses on more romantic comedy antics, and Yuyushiki's humor depends on the girls' strange thoughts, and is more trivia-based and shows the fun of being a young high school student.
Both anime have a girl named Yui who have similar personalities and even the same voice actress, and also a wild pink-haired girl who likes the Yui, both pink girls voiced by the same VA as well.
Yuyushiki's main focus is three girls, but YuruYuri focuses on an entire big group.
The humor is almost exactly the same. The story begins with them joining a club with no members. Also, yuri feels are included.
-Both follow a group of cute girls and what sorts of experiences (often funny and moe) they get into.
-Both very light-hearted slice-of-life comedies with yuri, though it is very subtle in Yuyushiki unlike Yuru Yuri (hence the "Yuri").
Both are mainly for spectacle and humor.
Both are of shoujo genre.
Okay so we have two light series that anyone can enjoy because they are both just absolute random. They both use comedy in similar ways in the sense that it all fits into its random storyline. The main reason I have recommended these two is that it is about two groups of girls doing random nonsense that makes people laugh. So I believe that if you liked one you should easily enjoy the other.
group of high school girls join a club that essentially does nothing. mindless cuteness and hilarity ensues. i actually don't think it's possible to like one of these and not the other.
Yuri, moe, cute-sy anime. Similar characters and humour.
For Yuru Yuri and Kiniro Mosaic, the word "cute" comes to mind when describing each other. There is an all-female cast for both series that consists of cute girls doing cute things. They also follow a slice-of-life format rather than any direct storyline. It chronicles the girls' lives and what they do at home, school, and anywhere else.
In Kiniro Mosaic though, there's a diversity of nationalities while in Yuru Yuri, there's more of a sense of diversity in personalities. Nonetheless, both series are something to grab as they inspire smiles and joy.
Relaxing Slice of Life Comedy, Very Likable Characters, Very Cute Characters, Cute voices.
Slice of Life lovers and Moe Lovers will love it!
Besides being slice-of-life anime with more shoujo-ai overtones than your typical one, the characters and the sense of humor in both of these anime is rather similiar.
Cute female characters doing cute things.
Slice of Life.
Possibly some undertoned Shoujo Ai. (Not undertoned in Yuru Yuri)
The characters have very similar personalities, particularly Alice and Chinatsu and Youko and Kyouko (even the names).
Both have subtle hints of Yuri in them, and aren't ever all that intense. However, Kiniro Mosaic mostly just hints at it, while Yuru Yuri makes it more obvious. Both adorable and well worth a watch, especially if you're new to Yuri and want a few relaxed shows to watch.
Both have a cast of cute schoolgirls and "implied" romance between the girls, though this is more so in Yuru Yuri. Both are lighthearted comedy, SoL anime without a plot.
Both anime are about group of friends.
Both anime are cute girls doing cute things.
Both are female cast.
So you like cute girls? How about inexplicit lesbian relationships? So how about cute girls in inexplicit lesbian relationships? Well if you do then you're in luck since that's pretty much what most "cute girls life" shows boil down to. I mean, they don't really explain or delve into their semi-platonic relationship but lesbianest, it's obvious that they're passionately sprouting for one another.
These series are both fundamentally school-centric slice-of-life anime with a primary selling point being cute girls being cute and amusing. Both series also have the distinction of having some themes of romantic interest between their core cute girls, but it is to be noted that Yuru Yuri is to the point of Shoujo Ai, whereas Kiniro Mosaic has not achieved that status.
Both shows are about a group of girls who pretty much just hang out and have a good time. The characters are very similar (one hyperactive, one tsundere, etc.), and there are yuri undertones in both. They both provide plenty of comedy and are sure to make you smile.
Cutesy Slice-of-life anime where gay girls have a gay ol' time and do cute things. YuruYuri is more upfront with its depiction of yuri, going as far as to even have it in its name. Kiniro Mosaic is more subliminal about it, with it being more of a homosexual subtext at first before spreading its wings and evolving into a stronger yuri form in its second season. Both shows feature an extremely shippable cast who overflow with so much moe it should be considered illegal. If you like one show, you're bound to like the other.
Its about 4 girls just hanging around talking about whats on their mind in both animes.
There is the glasses-girl, the Otaku, the clumsy oversleep-all-the-time girl, the classic moe girls.
Both hame similar drawing style being "fun" and lighthearted.
Both of them misses any kind of real story, its just a lot of sketches of the girls doing sleepovers, missing homework and talking about stuff.
Both shows have cute girls making funny observations about every day life...
...But in YuruYuri, they clearly have crushes on each other! Lucky Star had some subtle shoujo-ai subtext, but they go for broke in YuruYuri.
Still, if you like cute character designs and slice-of-life humor, check both out!
Cute girls enjoying their school life. Cast of characters is very similar - otaku, tsukkomi, the one that always fantasing about others, the silent one etc. Lucky Star is more geeky and random but both are very funny
Both have comedy
Both have funny girls
So, both are LOL!!
comedy 4-koma, otaku (Toshino Kyouko), both are stories about 4 girls with fun school life with nothing to accomplish >.<
Similar cast of characters. They're both slice-of-life / comedy with all female leads. Konata is a lot like Toshino; a bit of a pervert, a huge otaku, and completely enigmatic. Yuru Yuri is Lucky Star if all the characters in Lucky Star were lesbians and in middle school.
They both are comedy slice of life set in school with all the main characters being female.
Yuru Yuri is also an anime about a group of school girls doing random and sometimes mundane things, and both are also comedies.
Although some people may be put off by the yuri, it's still a pretty funny show that I would recommend.
These are both similar in the way that both anime revolve around a group of female friends who go through various misadventures and daily life together. Both series are very random, slice of life/comedy featuring cute girls with no specific plot line.
Both slice of life/comedy and both are about a group of girls doing fun things. Both talk about the same stuff (manga being one of them). Yuru Yuri is a 'bit' shoujo ai while Lucky Star isn't but LS is by no means less fun to watch. Also both anime have a very cute style of animation and are really awesome, if u enjoyed Yuru Yuri you'll too enjoy Lucky star.
The second half of the name 'Yuru Yuri' describes both series perfectly. Both are light hearted comedies about girls who are into girls. Little more to say about them, really.
Very similar themes in terms of yuri and moe. Sakura Trick has more adorable animation whereas Yuru Yuri is a lot funnier, but that's just my opinion.
If you enjoyed Yuru Yuri then you'll definitely adore Sakura Trick (and vice versa).
Do you really need a reason?
A lot of cuteness and yuri happening in both series. Emphasis on interaction and the relationships between the girls. Yuru Yuri is set in middle school while Sakura Trick is set in highschool. That's about the only difference.
If you like the moe stuff and yuri you'll love both.
Both anime focus on a similar aspect, which is "girls doing stuff with girls."
The Yuri is strong within this one. The story follows the daily lives of the girls activities throughout the school grounds or outside of school. The main characters are known to have feelings for each other rather by imagining it or by doing it in real life, with some characters sparked an interest in them.
Yuru Yuri is know to have a lot of imagination instead of doing it in real time, and mostly involve in a lot of relationships. Sakura Trick makes the characters "open up" to themselves and somewhat focuses on the two main characters.
Both titles are romantic with piece of comedy, making you fall in love with this MOE characters.
Both animes don't really take the yuri too deeply although Sakura Trick is a bit more explicit about it. The characters are very similar to the main casts, and both like to have cute girls do cute things. The scenes in each anime seem to follow the same pace between the two as well.
Cute girls doing cute things...with each other.
Yuru Yuri is more like your typical moe series though, while Sakura Trick focuses on the romance and yuri.
Both are sweet, lighthearted shows focusing on girls and relationships between them. However, in Yuru Yuri the "yuri" part is more subtext and there are surely less kisses than in Sakura Trick - but it's still very enjoyable.
Both anime are about ridiculous middle school girls and their life. The characters are loveable and cute. Filled with hilarious dialogue and moe artwork. A little bit of shoujo ai in both animes.
Aside from having the same staff and studio, both are an all-girl cast SoL/school comedy animes. These shows give off similar atmosphere and is hilarious. If you like Love Lab, you'd probably like Yuru Yuri and vice versa.
There's a strong sense of yuri vibes going in both series although it's mostly for comedy rather than anything to serious. More so though, Yuri Yuri and Love Lab both contain very humorous dialogues that are sometimes exaggerated and can be interpreted differently.
The girls from both series also has their own sense of humor. There's also dirty jokes related to love while others related to life. There's also the school life setting that inspires fun tales of humor.
Both involve some cute girls talking (mainly about love/relationships), have a similar art style, funny comedy and some slice of life elements.
Artwork is somewhat similar, in the eyes. Bunch of girls hanging out, doing random, funny things. Some instances of "yuri" is hinted or shown in both shows.
YuruYuri and Love Lab just give the same atmosphere... there both very comical and refreshing, if you liked one you should watch the other one
only diffrence is that yuruyuri is more into Shoujo-ai than Love La, and i liked yuruyuri a bit more... but you should watch both :3
If you are looking for all girls cast with somewhat similar comedy, you can do much worse than these two.
Main difference is the fact that one is Shoujo Ai (aka. Yuri) and other isn't...
