    Gakuen Polizi - the latest from the author of Girl Friends - has now been released in English. Found a copy of the first volume newly released in my regular haunt today. Would recommend following that up since Milk Morinaga is the eternal yuri win bastion.

    Ah, on the note of Honoka x Kotori, or the three second years in general -- actually perhaps I should have said that I felt the anime did a very good job of developing the relationships between all three of the characters involved, so that I am rather attached to them as a trio and not certain about pairing any two of them at the exclusion of the other (alternatively, that I'd enjoy any combination of them but am unlikely to strongly invest in a specific pair). I actually felt that S1 made just a strong a statement for Umi x Kotori as Honoka x Kotori, while Umi x Honoka is probably the most visible relationship of the trio over both seasons.

    Haha, actually with that said, in fact I'm aware of at least one piece of fanart portraying Umi x Kotori x Honoka as a yuri threesome. I have to admit that the idea is not unappealing at all; the only question is if it could be developed in a proper/non-18+ story.

    With regards to NicoMaki, actually I do think that, even as portrayed in the anime, it has the potential to be one of the most interesting yuri pairings: considering their numerous contrasts, third-year/first-year gap, and indeed their strong personalities. I also think the fact that they don't have a pre-established aspect to them like childhood friendship or having a history of being classmates/clubmates together is fairly compelling; that's one of the factors behind my strong attraction to BuCap from Saki or Yayoi x Reika from Smile Precure (the characters in my avatar), for example. The only issue is that unlike BuCap, NicoMaki don't really have a strongly established in-story reason for why they'd be personally interested in each other (in a positive manner, anyway -- considering Nico's oft-displayed jealousy towards Maki's various ojou-sama aspects, and the occasional friction caused by Nico's self-centered personality). Ep. 2 of S2 provided a very decent start in that regard, but without any followup development I would say their relationship is considerably subtle.

    Haha, and anyway, as for the future of the franchise: I would certainly love it if this season doesn't become my last experience with the series. Something like a followup movie would absolutely be great.

    Got done marathoning Love Live up to the current episode. Glad I managed to get in before the epilogue, haha. Although I guess I'm okay with coming to the series too late to have really joined in on the episodic discussion: a lot of the negative criticism about stuff like "drama", or waifuing of individual characters isn't really my thing.

    First thing I have to say about Love Live is that I'm really impressed with its quality -- both in writing, music/voice-acting and performance animation/choreography -- so that I can easily see why the series is so popular. The second season in particular has just been remarkably solid since about episode 5, which has made for a really consistently excellent watching experience. I think my favourite episodes (so far) would probably be 5, 8, and 9, with 10 and 12 also being very notable.

    I think I'd also note that, while my personal sensitivities are towards getting engaged in emotionally positive moments (and it's actually pretty easy to get me to tear up doing so), Love Live as a whole has been very successful and frequent in engaging me on that level so that I also had a very good time almost from the start with season 1. In particular I didn't have the trouble with the Kotori drama that some of the regular watchers here seemed to have, although I guess part of that might also have been the benefit of marathoning the series.

    Well, I'll also admit that one of my major motives in picking this up was to serve as a stepping stone to a better appreciation of the yuri content produced for this series. On that level I'm somewhat conflicted. Although I feel that the anime serves as a strong basis for a certain number of pairings on its own, I'm also a bit conscious of pairings based on earlier continuities/the original source material which doesn't necessarily match up. Of the yuri pairings I strongly see in the anime, HanaRin and NozoEri top off the list, but I'm also fairly interested in seeing how the fanbase ran with and envisioned NicoMaki (I'd say the NicoMaki elements in the anime provide a great supplement, but not necessarily basis, for a romantic relationship). That leaves the 2nd year trio, which I have no strong feelings on. The uncertainty towards prior sources I mentioned concerns the existence of Eri x Umi, which I also see hints of within the anime but am uncertain could really compete with NozoEri.

    In any case, a fair degree of content exploration now promisingly awaits. I'm also pretty hyped/invested in how the anime wraps up next Monday. Although I will say that I'm fairly glad/accepting of the characters' attachment to mu's as a nine-member unit, I'm also pretty curious about the futures of Yukiho and Arisa. Looking forward to it.

    Oh, I see Sunrise has gotten behind the scenes.

    But given their tendency to do mecha pilots with skintight suits and then having it go beyond that (say, Natsuki from Mai Hime), plus the existence of Kuroyukihime and her umm rather endowed behind too, I think they might just have a chance.

    Also, I totally thought that you would link a yuri implied scene.

    Wrote this on Pocari's wall, interested if you've been feeling the same way:

    Quote:
    Brynhildr was looking like 2014 favourites list material for me and still might end up there but the second half definitely hasn't matched up to the first... the first half had some really tense moments that reminded me of why Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu remains on my all time favourites list after so long. However, a couple recent "wham" moments just came across as, uh... ham fisted and flat. And it really drags the show down.
    Also... Infinite Stratos's first season, Unbreakable Machine Doll and now Seikoku no Dragonar - apparently, the only thing it take to make me like fanservicy action harems with so-so plots is for the main character to have decent chemistry with the blonde. And I'm not even that attracted to blondes in real life.
