I was very pleased with the first season of Yuru Yuri, and the second season did not disappoint. Every episode I watch gives me a happy feeling and I can't hold back my smiles and giggles~!
I'm a hardcore yuri shipper, more than yaoi, and I'm personally addicted to anything cute and moe. If you're into that kind of lolicon thing, please watch this anime. It's worth a shot.
It's a slice-of-life anime that gives off a happy nostalgic feeling and the "romance" in this anime is very light, fluffy, and completely hilarious. Each character has their very own personality that makes the show so
unique. It's different from school girl anime such as K-ON in a very odd way...but a good way. It's kind of hard to describe.
I'd give it a 10 if it had a well developed, continuing plot. Though it doesn't, the cute moe stories in each episode are enough to keep you coming back for more. Little story lines such as studying for finals, cooking, christmas, and heading to anime conventions with Toshinuo Kyouko. It's simply fun and silly.
The artwork for this anime fits. It's not complex and completely detailed like the designs for Angel Beats. The simplicity to the artwork keeps you focused on the meaning of the anime, which is basically cute. moe, moe, kawaii.
I LOVE any eroge openings and any cutesy akihabara idol music, so if you're into that sort of thing, the OPs and EDs are perfect. They make me feel happy, excited and like I want to jump up and start hugging people. ~~^__^
100% Chu~Gakusei (100％ちゅ～学生) is my favorite of this season and I was earlier disappointed when I couldn't find a full version to download. I normally don't listen to the song at the end of the episode, but the music in Yuri Yuri♪♪ is an exception.

(my review had gotten cut off here, so it will be shorter)
Like I said before, each character is quite different (except for Toshinou Kyouko and Ohmuro Sakurako. Even the other characters pointed out their similarities in episode 9.)
The 4 main characters are all amusing on their own.
Akaza Akari is the mild, laid-back one and is even joked about not having any presence. Do not get this confused with episode 1 where she is having a dream that everyone loves her.
Funami Yui is very quiet, tomboyish, and mature, making her the perfect love interest for China-chan :3
Toshinou Kyouko is very irresponsible, outgoing, and not the brightest. She is madly obsessed with Chinatsu-chan and even made her the model for the main character in her manga.
Yoshikawa Chinatsu is bubbly and naive and fails in art. She loves Yui-senpai, is good friends with Akari, and is constantly irritated by Kyouko.
I also said before that I was very impressed by this anime. I've enjoyed the episodes I've watched and I will enjoy the rest! :3
LOVED IT. It's not an old-school classic like Sailor Moon but it is definitely a masterpiece to me. Even my friend who doesn't watch anime said she thought it was cute any funny! ♥
