Yurumates

OVA based on the 4-koma comic strip by saxsun. Slice-of-life humor reminiscent of Hidamari Sketch but with a drier wit. I found it hilarious. Three girls and a guy living in a boarding house while they go to various cram schools in Tokyo, hoping to get into a college.

Excellent voice work by Momoi Halko, Kuwatani Natsuko, Matsuki Miyu (who is outstanding) and Hino Satoshi. A series of short pieces just like a comic strip, depending largely on the skills of the seiyuu to sell the humor. OPED written and performed by Momoi Halko.

Directed by a complete unknown, Tsukimizato Tomohiro 月見里智弘, for indeprox animation and Takeshobo publishing. Uses a mix of Flash and 2D animation. Not a lot of motion, but the humor and aesthetics work for me. Only one episode, as far as I can tell, released 24 April 2009.

Japanese fans of the comic say this reproduces the feeling of the original very well.

Japanese title: DVD ゆるめいつ

4-koma with a GUY in it? So rare, it's shocking.

I'd just want to say that that's some pretty great voice acting there.

I mean it's a bunch of suprising work actually. You have Kuwatani Natsuko sans her excess Suiseiseki desu-fest voicing Sae and Matsuki Miyu doling out Hidamari's Yoshinoya with a touch of alcoholism in Kumi. I'm not familiar with Yurume's VA so I can't comment much.

Biggest surprise is the voice of lone male, Matsuyoshi, by Satoshi Hino. If you recognize that, yes, that's Yuuji/Saito of Shana/Zero. Specifically, the voice of Yuuji/Saito NOT being Yuuji/Saito. So much for typecasting!

He's done a large collection of character that are nothing like Yuuji or Saito though. Have you only heard him voice those two characters or something?

Well anyway I am of the opinion that this should be made into a series, also retaining it's original animation style.

I haven't laughed myself to the point of flatulence on a 4-koma adaptation since Lucky Star.

I am surprised that the one voice referenced here as "unknown" is my all-time favorite person Haruko Momoi, the Queen of Akihabara. She also sings the OP and ED. I guess that, surprisingly with her definitive moe moe voice, she hasn't really done all that much anime voice work. She concentrates much more on her idoru career.

This really is a pure yonkoma lifted straight from the page, even maintaining the simple drawing.

I didn't get the connection with the cicada. The little cut stories didn't even seem relevant to the surrounding strips.

Oh believe me, all i needed to know was that Haruko Momoi was voicing a character in this for me to watch it.

For me, she was both the necessary and the sufficient condition to watch it.

It took me like 30 minutes to warm up to the show and then it was over. Also Haruko Momoi sounded way too much like Yukari Tamura in this episode.

After watching this, I've come to the following conclusion. It needs to be a TV series like now. Definitely rather amusing in a laid back way.

Yeah, she's not a kid anymore. But then Yukarin is pretty moe herself in so many roles. And they did work together as rivals in Nurse Witch Komugichan.

Nope, I mean whats so wrong about having a token guy in a slice of life. sure some romantic notes can be played but adding a bit of gender mixing helps for variety.

And lol at Hikari and Yaya living together

With this show joining the ranks of 3-minute anime (and having a simulcast on Friday), I wonder if it's possible for this thread to be moved to Current Series?

And just got done watching the first episode of 3D @ CR. This is my first exposure to Yurumates, actually. I'd been wanting to check it out, and it looks like it'll be a nice series. Sort of a Hidamari Sketch/Mahoraba type deal. And the opening is really cool, with Maison du Wish Robo and all that. (Not the first exposure I'll have to Halko Momoi today, either.)
