5 Days Of Christmas Animes!!! Pt. 2

21 Dec

Pt. 2!!!

Yuru Yuri!

Yuru Yuri Christmas 1

Air Date: August 16, 2011

Episode: Season 1, Eps. 7 “Christmasery”

Genre: Yuri, Comedy,  Slice Of Life, Craziness

My Rating: *** (3:5 stars)

This Christmas episode of Yuru Yuri starts with the usual flair of Kyōko busting into the clubhouse in a Santa suit. Mind you its 1 week before Christmas proving to everyone that she really is off her rocker a bit. Since Christmas in Japan is more of a romantic holiday then anything, she suggests that they all go out on dates since everyone else will be on them. This of course leads to massive tension on who will be with who…

Kyōko suggest they have a lotto to draw numbers and whoever has the same numbers are paired up. More tension ensues while everyone is wishing to be with who they wanted and steaming over the idea of being with someone they don’t want lol. Like Ayano and Yui.

As the girls set off on their dates, some willingly and others not so much, they end up all over town. Not to give away too much but one couple goes to the movies and arcade, another to a couple cafes, with yet another to a restaurant and the last couple sit in the park. Most of the dates stared off w lots of grumbling but by the end of them they were actually getting along with a couple of them even having fun! They all meet up in the park at the end of their dates. Awww so cute!

Yuru Yuri Christmas 2

There is a VERY quick cut to the new years from the park and each girl is celebrating with their families and reading the news years cards from their friends. All of them were cute and nice with the exception on Chinatsu’s cards which were well her standard dark and un-artistic products that she generally produces lol.

Yuru Yuri Chirstmas 3

Overall it’s a cute episode that showed more of the romantic lovey dovey side to Christmas that you see in Japan instead of the more religious side in the west.

This is the episode all about dreams… Osaka is once again in dreamland and this time she is dreaming about the great mystery of Chiyos pigtails. She is dreaming that Chiyo is flying around using her pigtails as propellers! Osaka then decides to take the pigtails off to see what happens and Chiyo falls down.

My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)

Takumi struggles with his feelings for Rika and his growing feelings for Ayumi. He later finds out that she is going out with Shūji.  Hagu also struggling with what everyone is expecting of her as an artist. Shinobu decides to invite everyone to a Christmas party which promps Yūta and Hagu to go out shopping where Hagu finds out Yūta basically hates the holiday.

While everyone is having a blast, acting like idiots and drinking their heads off, Takumi meets up outside the party with Shūji to find out where Rika is since he couldn’t get ahold of her. Shūji tells him that is off visiting her husband’s gave. (that whole arc is sooooo freakin sad!) Takumi and Shūji end up joining everyone back at the party but Takumi still has a cloud over him. The end of the night comes and Shūji takes everyone home leaving Takumi and Shinobu alone with Yūta passed the hell out. This is one of the times  that Shinobu actually acts like an adult and not a total dumbass when he ask Takumi to drink with him knowing that he is having a hard time. Awwwww….

Eps 9 “Did she notice? Why is it that I don’t tell her? / That brooch was so heavy”

Air Date: June 9, 2005

Episode: 24min

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Slice-of-Life

My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)

Shinobu being the sly dog that he is and still not being honest with himself about his feelings for Hagu, makes her this cute little brooch and leaves it for her with out saying it really was from him. This sets Yūta on a jealous spiral on if he should or shouldn’t tell Hagu that Shinobu was the one that left it for her. Ayumi also tells Takumi that she loves him and ened up creating the most akward moment ever between the two. Another random adult moment from Shinobu is when he helps Ayumi out this sticky situation.

Both Hagu and Yūta take on part time jobs for Christmas in the same district as where Ayumi’s shop is. Hagu ends up helping Ayumi in her shop while Yūta does deliveries. There is yet another Christmas party in this episode with the usual antics. Only this time its Yūta that is struggling with his feelings and still doesn’t know what to do about the brooch. Shinobu helps him with that by admitting he made it but lying that he didn’t make it for any reason. Like he made it because he liked her. Ass…

Eps 17 “What I don’t have is a destination… … / I don’t even know how I feel”

Air Date: August 11, 2005

Episode: 24min

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Slice-of-Life

My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)

Takumi is no longer at the Fujiwara office which sends Miwako into a depression. This prompts her to her a massage chair. Yeah don’t know how that helps with her ‘depression’ but whatever floats your boat… Ayumi is also depressed over the numerous proposals from her childhood friends in the family’s shops neighborhood. She ends up finding a way to turn them all down while still telling them that they will always be a part of her live and she wished them the best. Poor guys! After all that Hagu and Ayumi once again are selling Christmas Cakes in front of her family’s shop.

The group once again has their Christmas party and once again Yūta is depressed over his life which he thinks is a failure. (Can you see a pattern in this episode? This is the norm for most people around the holidays so its refreshing to see someone actually show it.) Later Yūta is admitted to the hospital after collapsing at the party. He ends up getting admitted for an ulcer thanks to his depression and stress. He has realized that he does not have goal or direction in life which is not helping him when he has been going to job interviews. He was even so depressed that his destroyed his art exhibit upsetting everyone around him even the odd old men from the school.

While at the hospital Yūta contemplates quitting school but changes his mind after talking with Mitsuko and Kazuo. This also gave him the courage to tell Hagu how he feels but is rudely interrupted when Shūji comes in with a handheld TV. As the group watches the TV the craziest thing happens! I wont tell you cause you need to see the episode and then see episode 18. So freakin funny!!!
