Damn, I need to finish the backlog of anime with a higher priority than yuru yuri and yuru yuri before this ova comes out. Let the anime watching commence.

An OVA might be enjoyable. I always found reading the manga more fun tho. Not saying a season 3 wouldn't be awesome.

Damn it, I would prefer a new season but oh well, at least we'll get more Akarin~ if she doesn't become invisible in the OVA lol

i don't even like the series but WHOO!! this is going to be a good year :3

The thing people don't understand about Yuru Yuri is that season 1 is actually just average/a bit below average, while season 2 is bloody great. I see so many people who have only seen the first season confused to why certain people like the show so much, just watch the second season!!!

I'm glad we're having more Yuru Yuri, but an OVA? T__T Well, at the very least still have hope for the Movie to be good.

I'm a bit sad too, but an OVA is better than nothing.


WHY ?! I'm close to dying here.

I'm grateful for anything but I really wanted another TV series.

Oh well, at least I'll have an OVA and a movie to look forward to.

Very interesting.

Not an OVA and a movie; an OVA that is getting a screening in theaters. Something that is becoming more common.

Damn, was hoping for a new TV series. Oh well, I will definitely be watching the new material in what ever form it comes.

Any additions to this series will be welcome; there is certainly a lot more they can do with the concept before it goes stale or jumps the shark. Maybe if the new OVA does well, additional OVAs, movies, or another season will eventually be made; it has happened before.
