It's the first day of middle school for Akari, and the enthusiastic girl is determined to reinvent her personality and have tons of fun in the process. Along with her friends, mischievous Kyouko, serious Yui, and adorable Chinatsu, the girl joins the Amusement Club, a group for students who just want to hang out and joke around! Over the year, the girls befriend upperclassmen, impersonate their favorite magical girl characters, and develop crushes... sometimes even on each other!
This anime contains absolutely no story, but I don't think that's the purpose of the show. There are some moments that made me laugh extremely hard, and that made it for me worthwile to give this anime barely a 5 out of 10. But again, that's only for some of the jokes. There are certain jokes in this show that get repeated over and over and over and over to the point where it gets anoying. For example: (Read spoiler 1 below this page) If you're a serious anime watcher, and love good stories, good music and good character development, I would NOT recommend this to you! Other than that, if you love pointless anime that has it's moments that makes you laugh, you can give it a shot. <--« <--« SPOILERS (read backwards) <--« <--« Spoiler 1)!edosipe yreve gnirud semit noillim a gnirucco peek sdeelbeson s'esotihC Spoiler 2)!spots yltpurba tsuj ti .gnidne on tog wohs ehT
No spoilers- I enjoy slice of life however Yuru Yuri felt off to me. My main critique of the anime was not with the plot- it was a standard slice of life school girl anime- but with the character Chitose. She is used for comedic relief, known for having Yuri fantasies about her friends, and subsequently suffering nosebleeds because of them. But after the first 5, I was tired of her. Additionally, some episodes were so saturated with her nose bleeds that they lost all value. If you're looking for a similar concept but with a more refined cast of characters and a comedic twist, try Asobe Asobase or Daily Lives of High Schools boys, of which both poke fun at the genre and are absolutely hilarious.
What I Liked: Good character designs. Animation was average, with fluid character animation. Yui. What I Didn't: Suffers from typical Penultimate Episode Mood Whiplash. Gags such as Chitose's nosebleeds become repetitive rather quickly. Some jokes are essentially harassment / abusive behaviour tarted up as comedy. Chinatsu. Final Verdict: While it doesn't bring anything new to the "cute-girls-doing-cute-things" genre, Yuru Yuri is a light-hearted and pleasant little time-waster - provided that you're unfazed by repetitive gags ranging from boob-envy to forced kissing.
