I just looked into and Studio Deen was behind Marimite series and the entire YUA series (including Full Throttle). That's why the anime art resembles each other.

Definitely looking forward to this, but I really hope they improve the writing from season 2. All those episodes without Natsumi were a drag, Miyuki isn't cut out to be a leading lady.

Looks good to me, can't wait! Watch some episodes of the old ones (pretty hard to get them now, since they are like 4 years old xD) and I gotta say, pretty good.

Has anyone seen a group claim this series yet? Ive been building up some people to possibly form a temp group to do this if no one claims it.

I thought L-E might do it, but i stilll havent seen them, or anyone else announce it.

First episode was OK.

Very 90's-style anime. No big pretentions, moderate-to-low budget, very unflashy and unhyped.

Those looking for some new quality anime may want to steer away. YUA 3 isn't all that amazing. It's more of a "oh, I loved previous YUA series, so let's watch another". Those who like YUA and Fujishima's work in general will probably like it.

Still, I thought it would have a bit more polish.

Really? That is a big disappointment. I enjoy the old ones and was hoping the new ones could be better in story plot. If it has a good story plot, I will watch it no matter.

Nah, I think it is because this is the same studio as Maria sama ga Miteru. Just look at that maria-sama anime, except for the ending song, what yuri? But, hey, if there is really yuri in it, I will be there.

So far, the yuri is only in the ED. But the ED is extreeeeeeeemely yuriliscious! 8)

The story, or any hints thereof, are so far nonexistent. Episode 1 was, basically, filler.

Just watched it. You don't need to know Japanese to understand it. This is to tell you how weak the story plot is. It must have been like what, ten years since the last season and they have not come up with a better story? Geeze.

I can't remember for sure right now, but I believe you have Fujishima to thank for stating that specifically in the manga.

Rather than saying the story is "weak," I'd say it's "iconic." The story is there just to provide a framework for showing us the characters and their moral excellence. For the first half of the episode, I was thinking: how slow, how simple, how uninteresting. Then I began to get into it. They created tension by very hackneyed means: pace, sound, music, but I was perfectly willing to go along and feel what they wanted me to feel. And the feelings were good.

It's definitely no accident that the ED resembles Marimite III's, since it wasn't just the same studio that did them, it was the same person: Nakajima Atsuko 中嶋敦子. She was the original character designer for You're Under Arrest, and has done genga (original drawings) for many shows over the years, including Jigoku Shoujo and Touka Gettan, recently. She isn't attached to any particular studio, but she does most of her work for Studio Deen.

Here's her picture, followed by screencaps from the two EDs. She is married, to another animator.



Speaking of implied yuri, I liked one of the last images in the show proper:
Spoiler for very minor spoiler for ep1:
I also want to mention how much I like the ED by Ishikawa Chiaki. She also did the OP for Simoun, another anime with yuri aspects.

I've never watched YUA for a deep and meaningful plot. It's never been about that IMO. Rather it's always been about light hearted approach that bordered on ridiculous at times and that's what's I want it to be.

You know, with all the extra training they've been getting, it's kinda sad that Natsumi and Miyuki are still stuck as traffic cops. And I was under the impression that the transfer Natsumi got at the end of season 2 was permanent too.
Shame they kicked out Saori. She was a nice addition.

I have the manga in my HD, I'm only referring to the ED although given the recent fad in yuri I wouldn't mind them taking it in that direction. The managa never really had such implications anyway especially since it was made in the 80s.

It's only 1 espisode, we have much more espisodes to go. Please give them a chance.

I don't hope for perfect work or well story development in this series. YAU is always like this, no exitment or deep in plot. Producers make this anime easy to understand.

I can't believe this. They will pair Miyuki and Natsumi as a shoujo-ai couple. I think it only fanservice since both Miyuki and Natsumi have their boyfriends (I may say that).
