PHOTOBUCKET BANDWIDTH REACHED. WILL REUPLOAD PICS AGAIN SOON.

We may all know Yuyushiki as another moe series for us to watch casually. But after compiling some data, we may have to look at Yuyushiki at a whole new perspective.

Meet Yui, the main blonde-haired protagonist of the series. She is the only level-headed person in the trio of friends. But why is that? BECAUSE HER OTHER TWO FRIENDS YUZUKO AND YUKARI DOESN'T EXIST. In episode two, we see Yui holding imitation puppets of Yukari on the right and Yuzuko on the left. Throughout the anime, these positions of the "real" people never change, when they're walking, shopping, or whatever. This insinuates that Yui is a lonely person, therefore talks to these puppets and giving them names similar to hers.

Also, there are commonly dream-like auras during the series, the fluffy white borders. This can be her dream state, perhaps a relapse of memories before a traumatic incident that caused her hallucinations. Okaa-san, actually a school nurse, lets Yui use the Data Entry Club alone in order for her to forget her past for a while. Okaa-san also uses the whiteboard in order to figure out Yui's current train of thought. There are only two computers because there were never three people: just Yui and occasionally Okaa-san.

Another fact to point out: Her name is Yui Ichii, in English, if ignoring the correct Japanese characters for "Ichii," would translate to "only one." Also, if we take the title "Yuyushiki," again ignoring the correct Japanese spelling, it would translate to "evening demon." And of course, these puppets are the only "people" in the series with unnatural hair color in a realistic point of view. Is this all speculation? Pretty much. But I'd like to see this happen, with the last few episodes revealing Yui's mental trauma. A nice plot twist for those bored of the generic moe genre.

Well, as someone who reads the manga, that's not going to happen, lol unless the anime starts to do original stuff

Anyway, the theory is interesting, but something like this would change completely the genre of the series, I don't think drama fits a SoL. except for episode 11

It's retarded 4chan trolling shit, it's the same thing they tried pulling with the daily lives of high school boys and plenty of others. It's a new way of attentionwhoring because you make this kind of stupid shit up and then you get to see your posts reposted again and again and feel like 'somebody' for a season.

Well it would make a relaxed slice of life rather depressing. I enjoy both ends of the spectrum but it would have been a shock. I see it's just /a/ trolling, but this one is rather clever, especially for them.

hmm...idk how far into the manga you've already read, but perhaps the mangaka revealed what the ending is to the producer for a plot twist in the end?

Pretty cool idea. If this were real, the ratings would probably go up to the 8.somethings~

Almost sounds like a troll from Urobuchi-sensei, well I know he hasn't worked in this type of anime before but I guess after Madoka I can't say it for sure.

Only half of this is correct. The translation for the kanji of her first name is correct, however her family name is actually 櫟井, which is read "Ichii", but for some odd reason you decided to change it to the kanji for the number one "一" which in English would simply be "ichi". 0/10 for the /a/non that failed at translating it.

Otherwise cool speculation.

Genius, as long as it accurately reflects what the show has shown, it is most certainly genius. Doesn't mean that it is true, but until some fact in the show kills the theory, it is a valid interpretation.

People who read the manga says this is not happening.
But...
Yui's reaction when she thought she was alone in the entire school... gives even more clues that the theory might be right....

I was frightened for a short time.
Fortunetly there are two things that makes the theory fall apart.

1- In episode 3, the text message Aikawa recieves at the end, was from Nonohhara Yuzuko (Red haired one) and she also states that she met her in the library.

2-(i know it's not updated to apisode 4, but still) In episode 4 Aikawa states again that she met Yuzuko in the library.

Ahhhh... that was a scary half hour...

That proof is meaningless. Multiple personalities can come out at any time. The proof that breaks it for me is the fact that the mother said to Yui "we haven't had others over in a long while."

Even if it is flop, this is anime we are talking about. Why are we watching anime if we can't take a 4chan theory the same way? We believe in anime for the ride, so let's just "believe" theories for as far as they will hold water. So much as it is still entertaining.

ie. believe what you want. We're not stopping anyone from believing that their version of the anime is correct.

That's pretty much it in a nutshell.

If it is only a "conspiracy theory" then those who oppose it should be able to prove it for the garbage it is.

If they can't, then bitching about the theory shows the person doing it to be a pathetic whiner pissed because someone has more imagination than they do.

One of the great fun of watching a good show is that there is a huge funnel of possible outcomes, and the viewer is rewarded by being able to winnow this funnel down by picking up clues from the show. If I wanted something brainless I would stick with American television.

Incidentally this is what separates great from good and bad. A bad show contradicts itself, a good show doesn't. A great show makes you think there is a contradiction until the end where the author surprises you with something that should have been obvious, but because of their talent you missed it.

This isn't only true of mysteries you know.

This theory makes the show a lot more enjoyable. From now on I will not watch this series with only half of my attention and my brain bein asleep the whole time. This kind of things are too interesting to be ignored.

Ugh....This is about as wild conjecture as one can manage. You're missing the point that Aikawa was interacting with Yuzuko when Yui was clearly stuck in the hospital.

And many other points are being molded to fit all of this crazy speculation. This show is not an original work. It's based off a 4Koma.

Before you even begin to try and make a case, you're going to have to cross-reference with the source material.

But, people here can have fun with this one if they want. Still, the things that people come up with when they're bored...

I find very convienient that you totally forgot to place the image wen Aikawa ask permision to Yukari and Yuzuko (the suposed dolls) to take a photo WHEN YUI IS ASLEEP!!
What was that? Yui half asleep and looking at Aikawa playing with her dolls? I don't think so.

I'm having fun with this topic.

Fun fact thought, if this is realy a deconstruction (whic the manga readers says, is not) it will start develop in the following two chapters.

On the other hand, i would like to ask if some one has a link to the manga, i've been looking for it for a couple of days now, and it doesn't seems to even exist in the internet....

people seem to forgot a very obvious thing about this show.

It's a 4-KOMA based, moe, daily life, comedy series that is not supposed to be taking seriously.

it is not a psycho-drama.

also people have interacted with the other two girls and asked where they were.

I would like to help, but I actually own physical copies of the manga, since I also couldn't find any link to download it. If you're fine with a good place to buy them, I sure can help.

I know it's just someone's imagination going wild, but it's still fun to read. And yes, I'll keep coming back to this thread for more theories after every episode.

@Zaraquiel99
Just sent a PM to you.

@Takei_Hisa
I've read until about half of v4, it's hard to know the chapter cause they're not numbered. The series has 5 volumes, with the 5th one released a week ago. So, as far as I read, there's not a single hint of this theory happening, and the story is like always, comedy, their daily life, some yuri, etc. Sure the author could do this and tell the ending to the anime staff, but I find this very unlikely.

@topic
agree with previous posts, it's very unlikely this show will be different from most shows of the genre. It is a relaxing series, not meant to have a heavy story. Nothing against heavy stories, but I think there are other animes for that. Just search for Urobuchi works.
But sure, everyone is free to use their imagination, that's why we have doujinshi.

Wooh this all makes sense now it's all so clear! So the reason Aki-san doesn't want to talk to the main character's friends is because they're puppets and she asks here if she is alone because she is a nurse too!
