THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Another peculiar yet fun episode. The yuri vibes are pretty evident and it sure didn't waste time:

Lol, the Gao Gao was so out here this episode but the tension was nice too. The bear hunting has begun. Found their escape kinda underwhelming but very amusing done this episode though.

Some funny moments, some nice ecchi moments haha, but nothing that interesting this episode. Mitsuko acting suspicious in the hospital at the end there?? My favourite character so far is probably Ginko.

3/5

1. I fangirled so hard this episode… how much more awesome does japan have to be

2. kureha's getting yuri'd, lulu rubbing ginko's butt in bear form, unnecessary yuri action, ginko & yurizono licking kureha's right cheek… delicious smell!!!

New bears. Also, the scene where Lulu and Ginko went to Kureha's house was pretty fun. Some scenes from the first episode were reused in this one, didn't really like that.

I still have no idea about what's going on with that court or what the "invisible storm" is. But yeah, I'm enjoying it.

Might as well get used to it, Ikuhara loves to re-use scenes.

So basically this season we can watch this or Generic harems.
Neither seem really appealing.

And don't know what this anime is trying to be i know it's an adaption but was the original source like this as well?
From what i have seen now this anime is confusing and contradicting and it's trying to stand out.

I really love the OP. Somebody has it posted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64AbgBKTUGQ

The ED has no animation except for the tiny dancing bear in the lower right corner. Money saved. LOL

Here is the OP looped three times (but no animation): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZZxpUkqL9Q

I still don't understand why everyone wants to eat Tsubaki? Maybe cause she likes girls idk.

Another weird episode. Still loving dat op. So we find out why the bears are eating people now. Izumino really is dead. We get some yuri scenes. Dat back flip thou. Still think the judging system is some bull. The only problem i had with this is that they used a lot of scenes. Other than that a good episode.

3/5.

Er, I think I read hentai manga with better story flow and characterization.

Aso I didn't get, why Kureha was fighting with the rabbit-teeth girl, but was "eaten" by the same two bears as in the previous episode. And I don't understand, why she can be eaten for the second time.

All in all the episode felt lame too often. I feel that I might drop this soon.

Is it "delicious meal" or "delicious smell"? Anywho, this episode was a lot more engaging than the first one. Still a bit too much growling/Ikuhara-ing, but otherwise I enjoyed it. The OST is great.

Absolutely wasn't ready for what this show appeared to be, but that attracted me as well.

With everyone around getting attracted to Kureha, though, it started to look a little bit more like a regular yuri/shoujo-ai show

Another confusing but funny episode. But the end was a shock. Yurizono is a bear! OwO

I´m just wondering why everyone wants to eat Kureha.

That was such a Kuma Shock! (Lol I'll never get bored of that phrase, I laugh so hard with it always)

Well I did expect Yurizono and -would calling it her lover would be alright?- to be bears since it seems bears share the particle Yuri at one part of their last name... Perhaps the blonde sensei will also end up being a bear too :OO (Her name is Yuriika after all)

What I really didn't expect was for Yurizono to be the "evil" hungry one of the show... like wow didn't see that coming. And seems like she likes to be the dominant one in her relationships lol. On another note; Ginko's "gentle" side was also cute, along with Lulu's attitude the two always make things funny or interesting.

Is it me or do the bears seem to only like eating lesbian girls? Also (according to what Yurizono said) girls who are openly lesbians (not invisible -aka in the closet-) are the ones who attract bears the most. Probably since Kureha is openly lesbian and completely devoted to her love she's the one who has attracted the most bears until now...

Things are getting interesting (a little confusing in some parts -like Ginko and Lulu eating Kureha again- but still nice) and I guess I'm not the only one who thinks Ginko and Lulu maybe are not as bad as they try to be seen... right? :P

By "eaten" you mean "got her lily licked"? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

I mean, was she eaten at all? The whole trial scene is yet to be explained, so for now it is too early to look for any sense in it, I think.

Kureha is the only interesting character so far. With only one cour Ikuhara didn't thought of a better way to introduce his characters?

It been a little slow but more of the pieces are starting to come together at least a little bit, pretty much everything is a metaphor for sexuality or love so the invisible girls are the closeted girls and the open girls like Kureha and Sumiko attract the attention of the bears.

I'm enjoying it so far, I like it when shows don't spoon feed you exposition and lets you think about what's going on yourself. My only concern is that this is a 1 cour series and there are a million questions to answer.

Basically, everyone is a bear expect for Kureha and the other random people they eat.

I'm so confused on the "eating" Kureha scene with the bears. Is she getting another life or another chance to live?

By the end of this series, I swear that people who watched this is going to say Gao Gao at the end of a sentence Gao Gao.

Why did you stop yourself in the middle of the speech, and not report the bears in disguise? Plot Convenience ?

What do you mean "quick escape", are you implying that they can jump out of the window faster than you can shoot them?

Bears follow bear instincts - that is the sexy way. Shaba da doo

Well this show fucking sucks. No context to anything. its all over the fucking place. ITs like its trying hard to be something. and it just isn't shit.
Impressive use of colors and really cool backgrounds are about all this show has going for it. Even the ecchi and yuri aspects are bland and boring.
Just because the director did some cool shit in the past (or so people are saying), does't mean that it will be any good.

All that said, i keep watching hoping to figure out whats going on. I have a feeling you will never actually figure it out, and they successfully duped everyone into watching every week for nothing.
