Aah, finally! I was so excited for this that the 24 minutes ended before I even knew it. D:

Haruka and Yuu were cute and awesome as always. <3 And Yuu's sister is looking to be a great addition to the character list. Her reactions were hilarious. :D

I happened to find this picture on TBS.

Feb. 2nd is Kaede's birthday so the staff planned the cake.
Since "Kaede" can mean maple and "Yuzu" is a kind of citrus, it is no wonder that the cake contains maple flavored mousse and yuzu jelly. It should be sweet and sour literally.

The sister reminded me of the student council president Sugiura Ayano from Yuri yuri not only do they share the same seiyuu but that also have a similar personality.
And i wonder what more we will see of her.

I thought we would see more of the moment they got caught but shamefully we didn't see much of it i wonder if we will see more in future episodes.

The onee-san's reaction to the yuri was a little underwhelming. Perhaps it'll get worse in the future. I hope not.

That's cream puff kiss was so good.

For the first time in forever (I couldn't resist saying like this lol) I have no real complains about an anime from DEEN. Well, the art is simple enough not to have major animation issues like their most of their other shows.

About Sakura Trick, it's basically a big shoujo-ai fanservice with at least one kiss per part of episode. I like it more animated rather than the manga. It would be wonderful if there was some drama, because shoujo-ai/yuri is all about angst, but I don't think there will be anything, since Mizuki is apparently too occupied getting flushed about the thought of her sister having such a relationship with a female friend to represent a big threat to or main couple.

Waiting or the next!

Hi Htsuji. Thanks for letting us know about Kaede's upcoming birthday on
February 2nd. There is going to be a huge event in Akihabara on that day.
All of the details are here, written in Japanese:
http://www.tbs.co.jp/anime/sakura/news/
Here is a quick summary:
You can buy Kaede's birthday cake for 680 yen, all taxes included.
They also have Yuu's favorite Mocha pudding for 630 Yen, with taxes.
Finally, they have a set of six cookies for the same price.
I am assuming that packets of ketchup are free.

I'm shipping Mitsuki x Haruka although I know it will never happen but perhaps, make a scene of them kissing at least twice or thrice. Kinda sick of those kissing between Haruka and Yuu. We need another one.

I just found out earlier today that Kotone and Shizuku are cousins. Maybe it's because in my world cousins are family, but I don't see why it's such a big deal for them to live together, why she had to really push/fight for this. But Japan loves its kissing cousins.

This episode gave me a few chuckles, but nothing really outstanding. I can really see that this is based on a 4koma. In general the whole thing feels like just another seinen targeted moe moe slice of life school girl show with a "gimmick" like K-On has with music. In this case it doesn't get any more blatant than when the OP is singing about kissing.

I feel like this isn't really going to develop into genuine romance, but it's mostly about showing off the girls kissing. It's a slice of life/comedy first, and "girls kissing" second, is what I'm trying to say.

The characters are nice and likable, but I just don't feel that this is for me.

They have already posted a synopsis of Episode 4! It is written in Japanese here:
http://www.tbs.co.jp/anime/sakura/story/
Naturally, this contains lots of spoilers. But if you are really, really curious . . .

This show is rather a situation comedy but that doesn't mean it doesn't have a plot. Episode 3 is out and all main characters have arrived. Mitsuki (Yuu's older sister) currently suspects if Haruka is good for her sister. But... I don't like to spoil it. Just a hint

It'll (slowly) start from the next episode (episode 4).
By the way, in the manga, it is next spring now. The main charactrers are 2nd year of the high school. I guess the anime has 12 or 13 episodes and shows us the story for the first year.

I loved Mitsuki's reaction to catching them in the act. Although it sucks they didn't really go more in depth with it (not like the manga did either); maybe it'll happen in the future. Time constraints, man. Although that ending scene with her finding the swimsuit tag. LOL.

I also love how truthful this adaption is to the manga. I mean, it's not like there's much to be replaced or removed, but when people had doubts about DEEN, I thought it wouldn't turn out very good. Guess we were all wrong. The animation is sometimes derp, but when it really matters, it looks very beautiful.

What. They are? I never would have guessed.

Looking back, it was sort of hinted at in the first episode/chapter. I'm surprised I missed that.

About the whole fighting thing: when Shizuku is pissed at Kotone, she brings up the fact that maybe Kotone is living with her because Shizuku's mom is nice to her. As irrelevant and useless this statement could be, maybe it's hinting at some trouble Kotone has with her own parents that leads to her moving in with Shizuku's family, and they didn't want her to move in with them.

Who knows. Hopefully it's not something that just gets shoved aside.

About a quarter of "Cute Girls Doing Cute Things" (CGDCT) anime series include
Yuri, at least as a "secondary element" (e.g. for comic relief, nosebleeds, parody,
subtext or as just a small part of the overall story):
Sakura Trick is the first "Central-element Yuri" CGDCT anime series.

These are YouTube videos depicting specific Yuri pairings in CGDCT anime series:

Add Kiniro Mosaic to that list too. If only Love Lab went that way too...*sigh*

Exactly what it is: A slice of life yuri comedy.

The magazine that greenlit the animation was the same ppl that gave up Yuyushiki and Kiniro Mosaic. Not the typical yuri magazines that some ppl wanna see animations from, where there is over-the-top drama and angst (for the most part).

I, on the other hand, enjoy the peaceful and easygoing slice of life anime, don't give the slightest crap about story nor drama. Also like yuri, but what usually tags along with it is what doesn't appeal to me. So I am loving this anime and am thankful for it :D

Jesus Christ, might as well add "Ecchi" in its tags.

I don't think this anime can qualify as ecchi. It's a lot of making out, sure, but there's no tit or ass to be seen.

After three episodes, it is clear that Sakura Trick is excellent within its sub-genre.
However, would you like to watch something:
- having a substantial plot?
- including elements of conflict?
- exploring some serious themes?
- perhaps with a bit of angst?
- requiring some intelligence?
- not quite so saccharine?
- less fanservicey?
If so . . .

Yuu believes it's C because Haruka didn't deny when she said so. (Haruka doesn't deny, correct or confirm it when someone refers to her size.)

Haruka certainly wears a D-cup. That is confirmed on the official webpage for the
series. The information is written in Japanese here:
http://www.tbs.co.jp/anime/sakura/chara/
Click on Haruka. Then take note of the part on the bottom left where it says:
胸はDカップだが
mune wa D-kappu da ga

The bra sizes for the other characters are unknown.

Yuu thinks that Haruka wears a C-cup. It is strange that Haruka never corrected
Yuu's misconception. There must be some deep psychological issue. Let's hope
that we will learn more in a future episode.

It does get boring when all this anime does is set the girls up to kiss.

The gags are sometimes amusing but nowhere near funny enough to carry the show.

Even she is not the type who wares over-sized clothes to hide her figure and tries to avoid others' horny interest, she still feels uncomfortable when they take it as a topic for gossip.
