The story centers on Nayu, a middle school girl who shocks her schoolmates on the first day of school by wearing black lace panties. She likes this kind of underwear, and she tries to "spread the word on the merits of [these kinds of] underwear" via an underwear club with her schoolmates, who are worried about their bodies' development and which underwear to choose.

I originally watched this show because the synopsis for it seemed absolutely ridiculous, but surprisingly enough it was good for a lot more than just cheap laughs. After reading other people's opinion on it, it made me very sad how few people really understand this anime.

The target audience is in fact not horny young men attracted to 2D girls. It isn't even ecchi. It is targeted to everyone with an open mind.

The message this show is trying to get across is that underwear is a lot more than just eye-candy for men.
It portrays painfully well what the state of the world is for underwear read more

By now, every regular MAL visitor is pretty much used to all sorts of anime, be it action, drama, romance, or something light-hearted and silly. There is one thing a lot of them have in common, though: They can be rather naughty from time to time. To see an anime that takes the subject of showing off cleavage and underwear without trying to lean towards the 'ecchi' side is rather courageous. It didn't exactly succeed in staying innocent and all, but it did bring us a silly yet heart-warming story featuring characters with each their own personality, a loose yet fitting storyline and some fairly read more

This anime was quite an enjoyment for me. The main character Nayu with her misunderstandings and her love for underwear!~ Yes, I am a little lady too, so I found this really educational in a way. Underwear can protect you, it's not ecchi at all, unless you have issues. *sigh* The way how friendship grows, by first thinking that Nayu was selling herself to other men. She just loves underwear, nothing wrong with that! Right? ._.

There are some scenes that made me want to puke rainbows, because I loved it and hated it at the same time. The ending was great and all, but it read more

Every show needs to have something that makes it different than all the others in its category, otherwise it will be forgotten immediately. This one had a very original idea of sorts but still failed. The reason is simple; its premise was for most too retarded and for almost any other not interesting enough for long.

The show tries to pass for educational, which is what makes it both smarter and dumber than the average of its kind. Smarter because it has lots of rather taboo info on what makes a bra comfortable or how a girl’s body matures; I actually learned a couple of things read more

both have a lot of fan service doesn't make for a good show
Both main protagonists are rivals but they start creating affection for each other in unusual ways
Both have a couple of girls, who become friends. Although Yuru Yuri is more of a comedy slice of life, Chuu Bra has a bit more of a plot, or a story, but both are comedy and have shoujo ai in it. Yuru yuri more of it (in every episode lol).

Both recommended.
Both feature main characters who are extremely kind-hearted and naive, with only the best intentions for everyone. Also they are both comedies with romance, though Fruits Basket gets a lot more serious and romantic than Chuu Bra!!
Both shows are about a girl trying her best to make a new club in her school. While the clubs get rejected a few times at first, neither girl gives up!
Both have school girls trying to form a club in their school and the plots are also somewhat similar.
