Synopsis

Right after starting middle school, Akari Akaza joins the Amusement Club which is composed solely by her two childhood friends, Kyouko Toshinou and Yui Funami. Chinatsu Yoshikawa, Akaza's classmate, becomes a member after finding out about the dissolution of the Tea Club.

The Amusement Club, situated at the tea room facility since the Tea Club disbanded, has no clear purpose, being free for the girls to do whatever they want.

"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 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 read more

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 read more

Since K-On! came by in 2009, every animation studio and their dog has tried to emulate their success. Some fail miserably and make downright awful shows that have no chance of being successful. Some make shows that are just as marketable as K-On!. But the one reason why K-On! is still number one is because along with being a huge cash cow, it was a good show to boot. Animation studio Dogakobo's attempt at jumping on the bandwagon is a comedy series that tries to mix things up by adding lesbianism into the mix. Yes, these types of shows have hints at relationships between read more

Anime: K-On!
Yuru Yuri is like K-On with more characters and a giant love polygon. Very similar comedy and cuteness.

Anime: Yuyushiki
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  read more

Anime: Lucky☆Star
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.

Anime: Sakura Trick
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.

Anime: Kiniro Mosaic
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.

Anime: Love Lab
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.
