Yuru Yuri Half Season Review

I don’t even know where to start with this post and the number of images I have isn’t enough for an alternate storyline or screenshot collection…

ACTUALLY NEVER MIND LET’S BEGIN

Ayano is a person and she is a person who studies a lot. She is the protagonist of this story because I said so and I’m cool and I’m not really cool and she isn’t really the protagonist.

One day, another person who is a person who doesn’t study a lot and is the protagonist of this story because I said so and I’m cool and I actually am cool and so she is the protagonist is the protagonist. Her name is Toshinou Kyouko and I spell long os with ou because I’m cool and you can pronounce Toshinou ‘toshi, no, you’ which is a cool way to pronounce a name.

Anyways, Kyouko is at PE class one day when SUDDENLY

Being a person who is a person who doesn’t study a lot and is a person, Kyouko decides to investigate the situation. Since all people who are people are people, uh yeah.

Kyouko finds out that the person who cause the situation is Ayano who is a person who is a person. Who is a person? Ayano is a person is a person. And so is Kyouko is a person is a person so Kyouko who is a person? Is Kyouko a person? Kyouko is a person imagines Ayano as a person person.

Kyouko is now determined to Ayano the person is person was person who’s person? I’m person is person am person. Thus, she had a great idea to person the Ayano – she would lure her to her house, in which they would engage in personal acts of persons.

This was a very evil plan but Kyouko was person is person so it had to be done like a person. LIKE THE PERSONS WOULD.

Now that the trap was set, Kyouko eagerly awaited for the person is person was person not alien was person to appear and fall for her person. However, what she received was a surprise, for instead of a person is person was person not alien appearing, there were…

TWO persons is persons was persons are persons were persons appearing!

It seemed that the plan would not work anyways, since Ayano did not react impressionably to Kyouko’s personal plan. This may be because she was not a person, but was actually an alien, but maybe she was just not person a person enough.

Of course, Kyouko’s plan failed, and so she was very sad.

Vowing to succeed, she unleashes her ultimate person person person – a scathing physical and mental blow to the person who dared person the person was Ayano.

Kyouko reasoned that HOLY SHIT I’M SWITCHING SO MANY TENSES SO TRIPPY MAN

Kyouko reasons that THIS DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT EITHER

Kyouko reasoned that by scaring Ayano’s companion away, Ayano would person Kyouko’s person, and tries to do just that.

Overcome by passion, she was a person and personed like a person would. In fact she personed so much a persona 4 was made and suddenly personas personed and no they’re not in this story of a person and a person and another person.

However, it soon became a story of a person and a person as the other person soon backed away after having starfish thrown in her face.

For Kyouko had conjured starfish like a person would, and the person who was with Ayano personed away into nothingness due to the sheer starfishness of the starfish.

Just as Kyouko was a person, starfish was a starfish – unfortunately, starfishes can’t person, as starfishes can only starfish. What do starfishes starfish? They fish stars, of course!

Ayano’s companion quickly succumbed to the sheer starfishness of all starfishes and ran away like a person would run away if the person was a person was a starfish.

Now alone with Ayano, Kyouko activates Plan B of her planned personal person-plan, to great success…

“And that’s how I personed the Ayano into being a person.” Kyouko said with a foolish expression on her face.

“The End.” Mari finally finished reading the new book that she bought – ‘The Great Adventures of Toshinou Kyouko As She Narrates Stories About Persons’.

She was not amused.

OK, that was a stupid story. I mean, who the heck would believe that the person who personed with Ayano would run away after merely being starfished by a starfish starfished by a person who was a person who is a person? Wow, if Mari’s Kyubey moved it wouldn’t be as happy as it seems, don’t you think? As for why the person in question was Mari and not Kaede, Kaede is evil and evil and evil and Mari is cool and cool and coolio.

If there’s anything that makes Yuru Yuri watching, it’s the comedy. Uh and I should probably mention that Yuru Yuri is a comedy about comedic comedies comedying. Come, dying.

I don’t know, I haven’t seen any real, standard comedy shows, ever – Nichijou’s not a standard comedy show, people say Mitsudomoe sucked, and some people are also saying Yuru Yuri sucks. I don’t know, maybe if I watch ‘better’ series, I’ll also think that Yuru Yuri sucks in comparison. The problem is, since I haven’t watched ‘better’ comedy series, Yuru Yuri is pretty darn good right now.

The humour does seem very stupid at times, though – it’s somewhat similar to Mitsudomoe in the way it tries to get you to laugh, and similar to Nichijou in the characters reactions, scene changes, and randomness of some sketches. It’s not as perverted as Mitsudomoe or as random as Nichijou – its humour is just very straightforward humour with one character doing something stupid and another character pointing it out, or something similar to that. Where Nichijou’s humour is often mental (e.g. Yukko’s delusions, Helvetica Standard, etc.), Yuru Yuri’s humour is more grounded and physical (I know you’re thinking of that type of physical, but nope.avi). I don’t know – if I haven’t watched many comedies, do you expect me to describe comedies well or something?!

I swear, that’s the only male character(s) I’ve seen in this entire series. And they aren’t fat overweight losers either (no offence)… I think that’s the only reason why Yuru Yuri has yuri, because THERE’S NO MALES ANYWHERE! I understand that there might be no male characters in an all-girls school, but how can they not have any men at COMUKET? I mean, what the heck is Comuket? A Comuc Market? From the Greek word Komukos, meaning ‘bag of dirt’*? Oh my I want to buy bags of dirt at Comuket too

I don’t get why they allow middle schoolers to go to Comuket – I guess it’s different from Comiket or something, but encouraging impressionable middle schoolers to go to events like Comiket is a bit… of course, you could argue that Yuru Yuri isn’t targeted towards middle schoolers, but WAIT THAT’S DISGUSTING

I MEAN, YURU YURI IS SO STUPID. GUESS WHAT MIRAKURUN’S RIVAL IS. IT’S RIVALUN. OH MY GOD RIVALUN

What if Rivalun was the main character? Then Mirakurun might be called Anutagunisun.

Indeed Yuru Yuri’s art is also very cute-

I TAKE MY WORDS BACK

I guess it’s more adorable than other art shows that try to seem cute by making the style so simple and childlike – Yuru Yuri isn’t trying to go for SUPER COOL DRAMA like Nichijou, and neither is it trying to go proper proportions like Mayo Chiki – it’s just trying to look cute, and cute without being sexualized at all.

The one thing I don’t understand is that THE MAIN CHARACTERS ARE ALREADY CHILDLIKE, HOW DO YOU MAKE CHARACTERS THAT ARE SMALLER THAN THE MAIN CHARACTERS WHO ARE ALREADY SO SMALL

Yet, the main characters voices sound a bit too feminine, especially when compared to Mari’s SUPER COOL VOICE which is SUPER COOL and SUPER COOL and COOLER THAN YOUR VOICES

I thought it would be Akari who kept on giving Chitose the tissues, but apparently it’s the unnamed Student Council President, who has even /less/ presence than Akari – nobody even acknowledges her! Ever! (props to Fencedude for noticing this)

I think that even if you switched the characters bodies and personalities around, you’d still be able to recognize who’s who because they’re so infused with tropes. Maybe it’ll do just that one day? Probably not, there’s no magic in this show yet :V

“Wow, what a stupid post.” Sakurako said as she ripped the piece of paper into shreds. “The person who wrote this post is an idiot. Also, who the heck prints out stupid posts on sheets of paper that aren’t even as big as normal sheets of paper? Man.”
