Season two of Doga Kobo’s slice-of-life, shoujo-ai, teen-comedy hit our screens in 2012 with more nonsense. Despite being extremely funny in places it all too rarely hits the high notes. There are a lot of great shows out there just like this. “Yuru Yuri” often looks hum-drum in comparison. You get another twelve full-length episodes with the girls of the Amusement Club and the Student Council members and their craziness. Highlights this time around include the girl’s School Culture Festival stage-play production of Snow White (Ep 12), a time-travel adventure (Ep 11), and Akari’s older sister’s obsessive behaviour with some of her younger sister’s stuff (Ep 7). As in season one there are no male characters, indeed none of the crowd scenes seem to have males at all. The only way that season two expands the universe is by featuring more family members. Otherwise, it all looks much the same. It is driven by the personalities of the girls but there are a lot of them which sometime makes it hard to track who is who. The audience could easily miss entire episodes and they would not miss a thing. It is full of non-essential teenage high jinks. You get all the usual girly eccentricities and stereotypes. The show’s saving grace is that it is occasionally hilariously funny, however the humour is patchy and spread a little thinly through the season. Not really enough is made of the moments that are pure genius. The show is a victory of quantity over quality. It milks an extremely well-worn format to death and it can look quite tired at times. If you like a real lot of this sort of thing then this is the show for you.


AKARI~~~~~~N. This show is back for another amazing season. Prepare to laugh at the ridiculous amounts of puns and enjoy some amazing character development.                                                      STORY Despite there being no actual story plot in the anime, that doesn't stop it from achieving many plot elements in each episode. There are about 2-3 mini stories in each episode that feature the many characters in the anime. These mini stories are usually based on Japanese puns and most of the puns will go unnoticed by many people who don't know much about Japanese culture. For example, one of the puns has to do with Akari's two buns that she has on her hair. The two buns represent teru teru bouzu, which is a superstition that makes the next day sunny. Despite there being no actual plot, these mini stories, and their puns are well appreciated.                                                     Animation For the most part, the animation is excellent and typical of a slice of life anime. The loli appearances of Akari and Chinatsu may turn some people off if you don't like loli type characters. If you are looking for an anime where characters have a nice size bust then you won't find any here except for Himawari, who haves a huge rack. All of the other characters are flat chested. If you enjoy short skirts, though, you will definitely find that here. Aside from that, each character is well animated and designed to fit their personality.                                                                              Sound If there is one thing that Yuru Yuri lacks, it's sound. The OST in this anime is neither exciting nor interesting. I even found the opening and ending themes to be pretty disappointing despite the first season having an excellent opening and ending theme. The good thing is that if you are watching Yuru Yuri, you are probably not remotely interested in the music.                                                                  Characters Now we get to the part that Yuru Yuri shines its brightest at. Yuru Yuri features loads of characters and the best part about it is that each character has her own unique personality. You have Akari, clumsy and rarely appears on-screen; Kyouko, who is funny, smart, and adorable; and Chinatsu, who gets frequent nosebleeds when she appears on-screen. The hard truth is that there will be characters you hate and characters you love depending on what type of personalities you love, and yes, there is a tsundere character for you tsundere lovers. In all honestly, the characters are what makes Yuru Yuri such a fantastic anime. Most slice of life animes contains 3-5 characters who all have a the same personality. The nice thing about Yuru Yuri is that you get to explore over 10 different personalities.                                  Japanese Learners (2/5 Easy to Understand) Once again, I found this anime easy to understand without subtitles. If you are at the intermediate/advanced level, then this anime should present no problem if you watch it without English subtitles. The grammar and vocabulary spoken is mostly at the basic level. There will be some times where advanced grammar will be used. If you are at the beginner level, this anime will be an excellent learning tool to use.                                                Final Verdict I loved the second season of Yuru Yuri. However, there were some episodes that were not as entertaining as they could have been. Unlike the first season, I found some episodes to be quite bland and boring. If you loved the first season, then there is no doubt that you will love the second season. What are you waiting for, get to watching!!!
