Yuru Yuri
 
Time to take to my own hands.

Namori's Yuruyuri seinen yuri series is getting an anime TV adaptation. This is the FIRST title to ever get adapted from Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime S line so let's hope to GOD this paves through more titles getting adapted from that and Yuri Hime's line.

There are 2 volumes so far, and it's still ongoing:

Here's the synopsis from ANN:

I actually got a glimpse of this and this is seriously along the lines of your cutesy bishoujo moe slice-of-life series like Hidamari Sketch, Ichigo Mashimaro, or even K-ON! which some people criticized why this is even in Yuri Hime S if the yuri is really all subtext and not go anywhere. Hopefully the anime production companies might take some liberties with it and make it even MORE yuri.

I'll be looking forward for this :)

I always expected that an anime adaptation of a seinen yuri manga from the male oriented Comic Yuri Hime S to come first than an anime adaptation of a manga from Comic Yuri Hime.

Think about it, what do you think will get adapted first... a seinen yuri manga that contains moe elements from the male oriented Comic Yuri Hime S magazine, or a yuri manga with more "shoujo likeness" from Comic Yuri Hime magazine. well, of course seinen moe otaku aimed yuri manga will get adapted first...

I was expecting you to make this thread after seeing your name in ANN, darkchibi :D

Even if this isn't actual yuri, having an Ichijinsha's manga being adapted to anime is very good news. Will be watching this.

Midonin 2010-01-19 18:37

It looks to fit right in line with my interests, so I'm in for watching it despite knowing almost nothing about it. (Which is my attitude with most things, really.)

Chiibi 2010-01-19 18:59

Yuri and....they all look about twelve. :twitch: Please tell me they are older....

Eisdrache 2010-01-19 19:09

Does it matter? xD I saw the thread title and clicked almost immediately, count me in for this.
Also if someone could tell me the name of the blonde one, it would be appreciated 8D

darkchibi07 2010-01-19 19:20

Ichijinsha's webpage for the manga can be found here:

http://ichijinsha.co.jp/yurihime_s/s...r02/index.html

So going from the character profiles, the blond girl's name is Kyoko Toshinou

Eh...kindaaa. For me, underage yuri is a little....squicky, same with underage yaoi. I'm more comfortable when they're at least teenagers....:heh:

If it's only subtext though, I guess I can deal with it....:eyespin:

billborden 2010-01-20 04:05

From what I've read of the Manga so far, the yuri/shōjo-ai content is fairly understated; light content, really, from the "Yuri Himi/S" line. I'm hoping it goes well, partially because it's actually a nice series, and partially because I'd really like to see some other series from Yuri Himi animated (anything by Fujieda Miyabi, in fact).

Syntron 2010-01-20 12:16

Ahhh crap... another loli show with yuri subtext? I swear if my hardware ever gets confiscated for some reason ill be in sooo much trouble... just for this. :heh:

I'd go with the shoujo-like yuri myself. At least those works have actual yuri content, unlike this one which is just a bunch of lolis going moe moe.

Of course, the current Japanese anime fans are the moe otaku crowd, so it's quite understandable why they chose this series. It's all about the moe; the yuri doesn't really matter (not that it has any though).

darkchibi07 2010-01-20 16:16

If they make the entire cast lesbians, I wonder how will the male otaku will react.

Its called Strawberry Panic, has quite high rating on anidb and i liked it, despite the fact it was pretty much a parody on shoujo-ai. The amount of good fanfiction avaiable is also remarkable.

But in the end it wasnt moe enough i guess :uhoh:

If it is yuri then I am game XD

The one thing I have not come across is the existence of yuri series that plays out like your shounen/seinen harem romance titles whether it has ecchi tropes or not. Like a yuri title starring a main female lead who becomes a beacon of infatuation by other girls consisting of your usual bishoujo archetypes (you can have your mystical magical girlfriend plot if you want). Throw in some ecchi comedy and then later some drama that lead to a definitive romance, and you got yourself a premise I seriously doubt the Japanese haven't used as much as before. :rolleyes:

This is becoming ridiculously scarce in het harems, expecting it in a yuri harem is a little far fetched. Ambiguity is what sells, by leaving it open ended you keep everyone happy as they can imagine their favorite girl won.

Also, these shows tend to play romance as something secondary, leaving it as subtext for the most part. Pure and innocent girls with the sexual maturity of a 9 year old are preferred here.

LOL, I did the same thing xD.
Shows sounds good enough to give a chance, so I look forward to it.

It's called Puni Plush. Everyone looks twelve even if they're thirty.

It's not yuri if there's no yuri in it. Weak Class-S subtext =/= yuri.

Girls kissing/cuddling/having sex = yuri.

Dagger 2010-01-21 13:11

There is kissing, cuddling, girl-girl crushes (and no male characters). The only thing Yuru Yuri lacks are actual relationships with development or any serious scenes that last more than half a page, although one could of course argue that many other series touted as yuri lack the same thing. There's a lot of gleeful fodder for yuri fans, but the best part, and the true source of its popularity, is probably the self-referential comedy. Kyouko (the blonde girl) steals every scene she's in--she's a character much like Miu from Ichigo Marshmallow.
