After 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.

Tomato onesie waifu my beloved.

Yuru Yuri (2011) is a comedy anime about friends who get together during and afterschool to have fun together, with the twist that they secretly find each other attractive while some of the girls are not afraid in the slightest to express their true feelings. This story has made me laugh very hard on many occasions and I am confident you will find it fun to watch as well.

Art Style:
The art style in Yuru Yuri (2011) is very round and adorable. The characters are very cute, just as they are likeable. The character designs are very simple with the ...

Yuru Yuri is one of the best of its kind. Speaking for the moe genre and the absurd humor portion. If you think that one night, Teekyu and K-On got shit-faced, slept together, and had a bastard childーthis series would be their love child.

• I initially dropped this series when it first started airing in 2011. The main heroine’s older sister, Akane, is rabidly obsessed to her imouto to a serial killer-like degree, so when Akari’s friends come to pick her up from school and they accidentally wander into her sister’s room, seeing pairs of Akari’s panties splayed all over the place, grotesquely, and pictures ...

Yuru Yuri is one of those shows I was curious about, wondering why it was so popular. I decided to give it a go, and I can't really understand why so many people like it so much.

My biggest issue is two things: The characters are incredibly bland and annoying, and it's not very funny... At least to me.

Honestly, it was difficult finding any of the characters likeable. The only two I enjoyed throughout the whole run were Kyoko and Akarin. Everyone else is basically a walking stereotype like Ayano, Yui, or Chitose. Ayano is your textbook tsundere and really loves Kyoko for no real good ...
