What is Yuri?

[Doki] Yama no Susume Second Season - 23 (1280x720 Hi10P AAC) [886385FF].mkv_snapshot_10.21_[2016.03.21_23.20.23]

It’s a term I widely use yet I’ve come to realize that it’s an ill-defined term. Two girls kissing does not necessarily define ‘Yuri’ any better than something as simple as sharing a promise. This might be a little abstract, but bear with me here.

Sakura Trick – The Confession Issue

[Mezashite] Sakura Trick - 12 [177DA7E1].mkv_snapshot_13.02_[2016.03.15_23.13.10]

By which I’m referring to Haruka’s apparent obliviousness to Mitsuki’s confession of love. To be honest, this scene caught me completely off guard as well. When Sakura Trick first concluded, this part bothered me more than anything, it seemingly came out of left field.

After re-watching the series though, I thought through how Yuu and Haruka are and their behavior does seem pretty consistent with this scene. I’ll try to explain that in this post.

Sakura Trick Episode 12 Review

[Mezashite] Sakura Trick - 12 [177DA7E1].mkv_snapshot_03.33_[2016.03.07_21.16.14]

I’d like to leave it at episode 11 and pretend the anime never ended, but for the sake of completion I must brave forward. It’s the final episode, and just as I sorrow over the end of the show, our (currently) not-so-merry group prepares for the predestined separation from their upperclassmen.

Sakura Trick Episode 11 Review

[Mezashite] Sakura Trick - 11 [FC11553E].mkv_snapshot_04.08_[2016.03.03_23.45.46]

Enter Sumi-Sumi Kaichou. Taking over Mitsuki’s president role is someone quite the polar opposite, both internally and externally. She’ll take on a prominent role later on in the series. Unfortunately, that only comes after what the anime has covered, so I’ll just go ahead and start on the episode proper.

Hyperdimension Neptunia

nepBOX_0325_comp

It’s been a month since I last made a post? Well I’ve been occupied with things recently, just a lot of things happening in my life recently, like Arkham Knight, Neptunia VII and Kindred Spirits on the Roof… Yup, real busy period for me.

So to break the month long hiatus, I’ll be covering Hyperdimension Neptunia, a franchise viral enough to have 12 titles released over a span of 5 years.

Sakura Trick Episode 10 Review

[Mezashite] Sakura Trick - 10 [E76BCA92].mkv_snapshot_07.45_[2016.01.27_08.41.57]

It’s winter, snowing too, something I’ll sadly never experience here where it’s summer all year round.

Somehow, snow seems to give off a sentimental feel (not that I would know), at least that how it’s usually portrayed. For them too, snow is something that rarely happens, so I imagine the moment would feel quite magical.

Vocaloid Yuri Showcase

Original: 40mP   Art: Yui                                                                       Luka V4 cover by Hyurno

I recently stumbled upon this cover and it brought me back to the days when I was crazy about Miku/Luka and all things Vocaloid. I guess the joy partly came from stumbling across rare gems among more established artists.

In this post, I’ll be sharing two things I love, Vocaloid and Yuri.
