A way better series than I thought, I like Kyoko's rambunctiousness. I'll watch this anime after all.

5/5

Wow, that Kyouko is a crazy one. Also has a thing for Chinatsu judging by Kyouko's actions. Hopefully some subs soon, so I understand it fully.

As I thought this was quite the fun that I anticipated in the PV. Other than that
Chinatsu when she was kid in the following,

was way too adorable especially as she was spying on her sister preparing tea and this way we all know her sister specialize as tea ceremony maiden. What a adorable close up of her face it was to see. I loved seeing Chinatsu the way she started to look up to Yui in the spoiler
after she said that she will protect her. What a change this was. Chinatsu is way smarter than meets the eye as she knew that Kyouko would jump at her to assault only to get Akari badly since Chinatsu offered for Akari to go first and it was so obvious from the way she made those eyes of her here that she knew already. Chinatsu is also quick at avoiding Kyouko here and it's obvious that Chinatsu was totally impressed by Yui here.

My next favorite is Kyouko in the following,

as you can see she is another girl that nose bleeds, which is uncommon considering that boys mostly get that problem in the anime. So it's nice to see another girl having that effect.
The only other thing of Kyouko are GIF1 and GIF2
in regards to why I like Kyouko.

Her forced skinship is just amazingly ecchi and perverted. Not heavy ecchi but intense. With breast groping of Yui and face rubbing on Chinatsu. Both her and Chinatsu will be fun to see interact in those ways. Kyouko was so hilarious with her key scenario towards Akari. I find her idea of the Ferris wheel here to be hilarious. Got to love her enthusiastic behavior towards the manga Akari found out along with the random magical transformation in the spoiler
to be so random yet hilarious. Kyouko's surprised face was just another good comedy factor Chinatsu came in and she is seen here as being obsessed with that manga. I was surprised how fast she was at getting that magical girl cosplay for Chinatsu to wear only to realize that everyone is gone already. It's kind of obvious that Kyouko was jealous of Yui for taking Chinatsu away from her here and that she does go crazy here for Chinatsu.

  • Kyouko should have never seen the room of Akari's sister in the spoiler
    now it is confirmed for sure that Akari's sister is totally nuts for Akari to the point of yuri. Well from the looks of Kyouko's expression I am sure she will not forget nor undo what she saw. Better not have Akari's sister find out. Especially the crab panties.

  • Obvious from the following spoiler
    that Kyouko has yuri tendencies already towards Yui. Pretty sure it's any girl in general. The OP shows that and furthermore she does it another time in groping Yui's breasts, another time in the spoiler
    towards a first for Chinatsu and she does it again with that forced face rub towards Chinatsu. So it's pretty much a given that she has something for Yui/Chinatsu but not as much for Akari yet.

  • There is reference to that movie symbol coming in the beginning of some movies in the spoiler
    namely Ring in Japanese has that. What's interesting is what comes after that namely a fictional movie of Akari. As she wakes up and tries to get out, Akari is greeted by someone and what becomes hilarious is Akari in the spoiler
    making a umbrella become a sword and being able to time freeze. Now that is amazing power. Akari was rather very scary here with her face.

  • Akari was hilarious with her class intro in the spoiler
    considering that all of the class were like “Huh!?” here. In response Akari's face was just priceless.

  • It is to note that a vicious love triangle has arisen in the spoiler
    simply put Chinatsu likes Yui and Kyouko likes Chinatsu. Kind of vicious IMO. One likes the other while the other does not.

  • I am curious as to what relation Kyouko has with Ayano in the spoiler
    for her to be this angry must mean something towards Kyouko. I for one want to find out what other things Kyouko may do that will tick off Ayano.
About preview, next episode looks juicy in regards to Himawari Furutani in the spoiler
lots of bouncing I see and also breast abuse by Kyouko, kind of like Tooru did to Yuuko. From the looks Himawari Furutani putting her hand in between her breasts, it could work out for that ecchi something. There shall be more Chitose x Ayano.

Why yes of course, that's what made the PV fun to watch. :D It will obvious be a comedy factor used to entertain.

I also kinda expected Kyoko to sound more energetic and a little crazier but her voice is fine as it is now.

agree. I guess the voice actress should have acted a bit more actively.

I felt sorry for Akari, who is a protagonist but becomes background even from first episode... Only she is kept in ignorance of Gorakubu's good feeling relationship...
Well, I hope her sister will be affectionate to Akkareen.

It was good overall. Just thought it was a little rushed, but the manga chapters aren't that long, so it's natural I think. Soon the anime will go further than the chapters we have translated.

What bothers me is that I was sure Akari had a big brother, not a big sister. Or at least, here it's translated as big brother D:

I thought so, too...perhaps they wanted to tone down the "creepiness" a bit? (who knows, maybe they thought a girl with a sister complex is less creepy than a guy with a sister complex) Or maybe Dynasty mistranslated it, which I doubt.

I just hope that if they add some anime-only stuff, it'll be as funny as the manga gags. Dunno, there are 51 chapters atm, so it isn't impossible to animate everything without anime-only fillers if they drag some little scenes out...?

P.S.: wow, yuru yuri even released an official relationship chart xD

The voice acting of the four characters seriously needs significant improvement. I know they're all rookie seiyūs, but it feels like a typical "textbook reading" (aka just reading script book out loud) to me, which adds a bit of rather unpleasant dryness to the show.

But then, even current star seiyūs like Hanazawa Kana had this same problem in the beginning of her career, so I guess I need to be a little bit patient with this show.

Well that's interesting, should have kept the brother but I guess they are changing totally to girl yuri stuff and for that they needed to change the brother to a sister. It's done rather easily when you see the pillow has a lot lipstick kisses.

51 chapters? O_O How will they animate them all? Impossible for 12 episodes. This must be at least 24 episodes.

Well that's interesting to see. So Ayano has a thing for Kyouko? Now that I really want to see more being developed.

Well the chapters are really, really short. Around 10 pages for every chapter and each page has big panels - so it isn't that much to animate, especially if you consider the fact that episode 01 already covered over 4 chapters.

Oh shit! I did not know that exactly. That's nice to know so we might have in the end original anime stuff. Maybe I should read the manga, I am curious to see what else is to come up.

Ep 1 covered 4 chapters, my goodness, it'll be almost completely animated in 12 eps. This is quite a trend this Summer, Ro-Kyu-Bu has mostly orginal source and now this, Ikoku Meiro is up there as well.

In the first few minutes i thought this would be just another pointless moeblob till Kyouko entered the room of Akari's big sister which was definitely the part which kept me watching.
And i have to say that after that it greatly improved tho i have been wondering who Akari's sister is, guess we will see her next time.

Kyouko is certainly the one that stands out the most of her group and she has some very weird obsessions from the looks of it.

Just for confirmation that only male i saw was during the move to boost Akari's presence in the truck and i am not even sure if he was male.

Must be you because the only thing that scene made me do was laugh it was such a funny scene.
Maybe i have just seen to much creepy stuff in my life.

This was way more enjoyable then I thought it would be. I really lol'd at the ferris wheel and 'movie' part. Already thrown some mystery parts in the mix made it also more interesting to watch further. Solid 4/5 for this episode!

So, who else sniffed out the lesbian within the first five minutes? XD

(The main one anyway...)

This show is gonna be good, I hope. It reminded me a lot of Hidamari Sketch for some reason. It's basically just another Moe Blob show so it won't be the best this season or anything.. but it still seems funny. Worth the watch.

I didn't actually think this was much like K-ON, personally. I liked it, I just don't see the similarities other than that it's about four girls in a club. The humour and atmosphere was really different imo.

Liked this more than I expected to (and I knew I'd like it anyway), had me in stitches when they lampshaded Akari's lack of presence. "There's a spare pudding cup!" was probably my favourite part of the episode. Will keep watching. :3

Hmmm it's like Minami-ke (well; obviously, it's the same director) meets K-On (funnier and more fast-paced). Hmmm Ok, I'll watch some more, even if the first episode didn't convince me, at least there are some interesting characters.

YURI YURA RA RA RA YURU YURI

Oh man, I've been excited for this show since it was announced. The manga is really funny. Plus, even though it's not a real yuri show, it's nice to have at least something after so long. I think the last true yuri was Sasameki Koto in Fall '09. ;_;

Akari better enjoy being the "main" girl now before they introduce Chinatsu, and Akari is reduced to the "girl who's redeeming characteristic is having no redeeming characterstics".

LOL it didn't even take until the end of the episode for my favorite joke to happen. Poor Akari. Although I do agree it would have been better if they used the joke a few more episodes in.

I thought Kyouko's seiyuu didn't really fit her too. I guess I was expecting something with more energy, like Satomi Satou's performance of Ritsu from K-ON!

Good first episode, looking forward to the rest.

Can't wait to see Akari's sister. I hope we do get to.

This had the potential to be really squicky, but mercifully I thought it avoided that aspect pretty well for the most part (older sister's room excepted, I'd rather that gag be forgotten asap), but it also could have been a lot funnier than it was. I thought there were only two laugh out loud moments in the first episode - Akari's class introduction speech and the cutaway gag where she pulled the sword out of the umbrella rack. I think if you're going to have a character whose one gag is that she's a lesbian, she'd better be a psychotic rampaging teleporting lesbian who receives electric shocks on a daily basis.

Gotta love how people came to the defense of K-ON!

To be honest.....there should be NO comparison to K-ON!, this anime is not even remotely close to K-ON!, nor will it have the popularity or views that K-ON! had.

This is nothing new, every season there are about 1-2 anime that feature 4 Cute School girls doing cute things.

So, let's just end it right now, no need to have K-ON! Haters and K-ON! Fans start a war over something stupid.

i had my doubts because i thought it was just gonna be some light hearted show but it turned out alot better then i thought it would had, after seeing Akari's sisters room i knew there was gonna be some laughs to be had which there was and that meta moment was great i kind felt bad that i noticed Akaris barely had any presence after chinatsu joined haha.

Now that's interesting! If you looks at the OP below

it does make sense that like Minami-ke I was overjoyed at the OP's pace and effect on me.
In fact Minami-ke OP from season 1 and 2 always gave me the "Oh joy joy joy!" from Ren and Stimpy cartoons.

Actually what i wonder is why people compare every 4 girl anime to K-ON!.. when K-ON! is not the first one to came up with this awesome story concept. if you want to compare then do with azumanga daioh, ichigo mashimaro,, hidamari sketch, minami-ke or at-least lucky star.. or i think people who complain have not watched anything but K-ON!.
