Yama to Susume
I guess the distinction is between 'has a yuri couple' and 'is a yuri anime' (or at least has yuri subtext).
For example Aoi Hana and Sasameki Koto are yuri anime, whereas I wouldn't call Psycho-Pass a yuri anime, just one that happens to have lesbian characters.
What are you trying to imply? I don't like it because the characterdesign looks terrible and the story boils down to "hurr lesbians aren't accepted in japanese society, don't stand out!!!". It's really boring.
>the character design looks terrible
I don't understand people who dislike Morishima's art. You'd have to be a heterosexual of the highest caliber to not want to fug Yurika or Kale.
Really good writing, mediocre visual presentation, priestesses in weird stripper clothes, an uncomfortable amount of attempted rape, girls who will make you cry, war, war never changes, lesbian Buddhism.
>you jus didn ged id xD
I was summarizing the general theme of the anime, of course there's also other stuff like the MC getting over the death of her girlfriend and accepting the bears. If you don't think that the hate from society against the bears (lesbians) is the very foundation of the plot, it's you that didn't "get" the anime.
I was honestly surprised by the relationship that was center in that show, but the signs were present literally throughout the whole fucking show to the point that if you decided to watch it again you would think you're retarded for ever missing it.
It's a far broader critic of Japanese social structure and conformity than just "lesbians are taboo in Japan".
Ikuhara has a habit of reusing symbolism. In the Utena DVD commentary, he said outright that he used gay people to symbolize oppression.
You can be straight in Japanese society and not fit in. Lesbians are just an easy symbol to use because the topic of female homosexuality, and female sexuality in general, is taboo in Japanese society. The hatred against the bears is hatred and fear towards those who don't follow the "rules".
It's about finding a balance between what you want and what society wants... and whether it's actually possible.
