This show is a blessing

>>135994210
Was my personal highest rated show of 2015.

I think it really fell off on this board once people realized it was a Ikuhara show and they ended up not enjoying it for the same reasons a lot of people are put off from Utena.

I was pleasantly surprised how moving it got near the end as well.

Yurikuma Arashi

>>135994489
Couple episodes left to go for me still, but it's really picked up the pace. Definitely enjoying it.
>>
Dropped it 9 episodes in. The character designs are fucking god-tier and I masturbated to them a lot, but the show itself was going nowhere and had way too much bullshit going on at the same time. Utena is one of my favorite shows and this one doesn't feel like it was made by the same guy at all
>>
>>135994210
My favorite series of 2015.

The confirming mark that Ikuhara is a one-trick pony.

>>135994210
I really hated this show. I really did. Fuck it fuck it all. Please disappear from this earth you god-forsaken abombination

Fuck this shit.

lesbians don't care about panties

>>135996579
What this guy
>>135996740
said. Panty shots are great when you've got male characters to see them. For a show full of lesbians it's a different aesthetic.

>>135996571
But like, why? It's not flawless, sure, but I think it's got a lot going for it, and it gets points for being unique.
>>
>>135996740
I'm not a lesbian.
>>
>>135996849
But the show is about lesbians, so there are no panty shots since they don't care about panty shots
>>
>>135996806
> I think it's got a lot going for it

The characters were unlikable, the setting was never explored, the concept of "love" and "yuri" was childish at best and pandering at worst, and most of all the story was a mess of pyschological concepts trying to be deep when it was just lesbians being bears (for some reason)

The main trio was very likable
> the concept of "love" and "yuri" was childish at best and pandering at worst
What does this even mean

Actual lesbians didn't watch the show.

3.0 is clearly a metaphore about otakus not being able to move on with their lives and how far the industry has fallen after the 90s but that doesn't mean 3.0 is good.

3.0 might not have been good but it doesn't mean Yuri Kuma Arashi is bad.

loved this show last year, not surprised so many people over looked it or thought it was garbage. too good for /a/ and its shit taste.

i didnt think it was overly convoluted, but i did think it was fun and like another anon said, endearing toward the end, gau gau
>>
Ikuhara is too post-structuralist for his own good.
>>
I want Mitsuko to possess and eat me.
>>
I really enjoyed this but it didn't turn out good, lots of missed potential.
Still unique and refreshing.
Lulu best girl.

>>135998701
Literally the only argument from the rebuildfags is that the entire thing is a metaphore so we should forget everything else and rate it only taking in consideration the metaphores. That sounds a lot like the average ikuharafag
>>
>>135994210
It was pretty solid. I wish more was done with it, but that's probably due to the 1 cour limitation.
>>
I'm too retarded to get symbolism but i still enjoyed it. I honestly thought the show was about gay bears eating schoolgirls.

But it is about that, on the surface level.

The cool thing about symbolism and allegory is that you can choose how deep into it you want to go. A good allegory makes sense and is enjoyable as a story, even without reading into the symbolism.

So for you, YuriKuma was a story about gay bears eating schoolgirls. And that is perfectly fine.
>>
Will i enjoy this if i dislike yurishit?
>>
>>136001325
Fuck off.
>>
>>136001325
It's a giant allegory about groupthink and ostracizing social outliers, specifically lesbians.

You tell me.
>>
>>136001325
>YuriKuma Arashi
Also, read the thread.

Fucking Imbecile.

The point is Kureha and Ginko had zero chemistry and almost zero development

Why are lesbians so mean?

This show was such a massive disappointment after how great Penguindrum was.
>>
>>136001519
Actual lesbians follow BL. Yuri is only followed by a small fandom of self-hating neckbeards and tumblr "pansexuals" aka straight college girls trying too hard to be special snowflakes

I do not understand.

You lost me there

Watch Bakemonogatari.
>>
>>136001521
Pretty sure Ikuhara designed it to be two cours but only got the funds for one.
>>
>>136001811
I was friends with a lesbian that liked bara, not actually uncommon.
>>
>>136001949
Must have been bi then

>>136001517
I would argue that their individual relationship isn't really important, considering the whole storybook thing with the two girls breaking the barrier with their love.

Kureha and Ginko's relationship doesn't need to be perfect and they don't need to be well suited for each other. They are setting a precedent and opening the doors for other girls to be open with their true feelings.
>>
How did Kureha forgive Ginko for not helping out Sumika when she was killed?
>>
>>135994210
It was one of my favourites of 2015 for sure.
>>
>>135998373
>yuri show
>lesbians don't watch it
what..?
>>
>>136003826
You think /u/ is populated by women? Most of the people watching yuri stuff are men. Also, don't use ellipses, newfag-kun.

Haven't been there in a while, but 5 years ago? Yes. Absolutely.

This series is glorious in how Ikuhara say "fuck you" at the state of the perceived "yuri" fandom in Japan
