Try to stick around a bit. See how it pan out first (I don't know what direction they are going too) xD

It could go a bit drama~ish, play out Tsubame's amnesia, and struggle with her leadership. Or just go all goofy comedy with Yuumi/ SoL with other team. Expect plenty of Io through as she's popular.

Hm, I like Tsubame. I think I'd like to see more of her backstory and all, tho Yuumi's shenanigans aren't unwelcome either, and I like Io too. Lol, I do like the characters (the side ones too. Their outfits might be really revealing, but damn I still think they're cool). I hope I grow fond enough of them, that they can pull me in even if the plot don't hold up. More anime to watch isn't a bad thing

  • futuristic + uniform
  • modern (military) + swimwear (some of the stronger version in game is one-piece-look-alike)
  • steampunk maid
  • medieval gothic

Ok I know that like, half my post was criticising their choice of attire for the girls' battle gear designs, but I do find it unique, at the very least. Tho I probs would have preferred if it wasn't swimwear instead, like their weapons and fighting style was pretty cool, it would have looked even better with something else tbh

Maybe because you, like me, don't have swimsuit fetish? xD

But yeah when it's less obvious to be swimwear, it looks much better. For example (not really spoiler, as don't think it will appear in the anime): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9HtotCKKqw or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5ceGtqkcqM

Oh damn, this was the best Gohan shit Super ever offered and the next 2 episodes will also be Gohan stuff including a fight against Goku, is this it? Is it finally time to not be ashamed of being a gohanfag anymore?

Yeah, Urara Meirochou do scream gay all over the place. And if you have any doubts, the captain and her two subordinate should remove any doubts.

The cast surely is unique. And adorable as heck. Definitely stick for entertainment and 'healing' aspect

Urara Meirochou. It's cute af, SoL, animation is A+, characters are adorbs and uh unique.
From what I understood, it's an entire town of only women too lmao
I hadn't read the previous posts on Urara since I wanted to watch it myself first, but

Urara Meirochou is very much a Kirara series so people who hate the genre won't be swayed by it, but it stands out from the sea of 4koma manga out there. It looks great so far. Harikamo is really good at depicting slightly surreal fantasy settings and I'm glad the art preserved that.

Totally, it looked pretty great, the music was really nice too, especially that scene when Chiya revealed she was looking for her mother. The music was suppperrr nice

It has quite a bit of fanservice, mostly due to Chiya's weird outfit (that was an editorial decision) and her tendency to invade people's personal space.

I liked Chiya's outfit tho, it's kinda unusual but it's interesting? The colour of her hair and the colour of whatever she's wearing fit well imo

There's one fansub that translated the ED lyrics and they're hilariously gay. It's clearly meant as a generic pop song about girls falling in love with boys, but Urara has zero male characters so you kind of work with the material you're given.

Ikr, that was my thought too. ED is legit a love song about getting lost and finding one another, meanwhile you have the full female cast wondering around and finding each other. Nice

Agreed, the OP is also one hell of an ear worm.

Looking at this promotional picture it could be an apron and uh... Your guess is as good as mine haha.

And the lyrics about a fateful meeting match with the visual of the girls bumping into each other... Thumbs up for being completely unsubtle :p

Urara is probably not going to blow anyone's mind, but it may put a smile on your face. I've been following the manga for a couple years so I might add the occasional tidbit of information if it seems like it could be useful and I'm sure it doesn't spoil anything.

The first episode of Little Witch Academia was translated. If I understood correctly, Netflix has the rights but they don't intend to simulcast it, which really doesn't seem like a wise move. The animation was obviously less detailed that it was in the movies, but still impressive. I'm looking forward to learning more about the characters and the setting now that they'll have the time to properly expand on them.

Gabriel Dropout was interesting. Haven't read the manga, so don't know what to expect.

Sadist angel strikes me as yuri. Hopefully there'll be at least some subtext.

How is Kobayashi-san? Is it as good as manga?

Doesn't it air on the 11th? We'll tell our impressions then.

Little Witch Academia seems okay. Good animation and the protagonist isn't as obnoxious as in the OVA version. With an all-female cast there'll probably be some yuri subtext

Gabriel Dropout has way less cringe than the manga version, and a bit more fanservice. Also want to say it's a bit gayer. Anywho, decent comedy

Oh yeah, Academia started airing, huh. I didn't particularly like the OVA, but I suppose it's worth a shot to see if I like it. Still need to get around to watching Yuri on Ice though! (you know, did they ever actually confirm the yaoi couples or did they just leave it to subtext?)

It's canon; they kissed, which is why it's a big deal.

Satanichia is the true main character!
We all feel bad for her in the manga

Yuri on Ice was fantastic, and it leaves absolutely no doubt at all that they are a romantic couple. It's not yaoi, it's a sports series where the romance plot just happens to be gay.

I loved the animation and the story of that one, it was truly a really good series. Seeing how popular it got, i hope we get to see more gay original animes like it in the near future.

Another reason why it's a big deal, and why it's great. I hope more shows follow this trend.

Little witch academia!! yes! this will alleviate the pain that the other cute witches anime will give me when it ends.

Haven't watched anything else yet, so first impressions...next week?

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon, seems to be a faithful adaptation, so if you like the manga you'll probably like the anime, a bit much more moreblob - cuz kyoani.

So, yea. its good for me. Satisfied.

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is actually playing up the yuri elements, so I don't think people here need to worry too much

...Why is everything I like this season a comedy about cute girls?

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is basically the manga with colour and voice. So can't complaint or praise much. I guess new audience will enjoy it as much as I did when I read it for the first time.

While waiting, I started to catch up with old series like Ange Vierge. And immediately... are all these girls exhibitionists or something? They were taking hot spring bath naked on top of the tower. Walking around and sleeping uncovered, naked. And the main girl even bare her naked chest on the top floor balcony in front of the whole city...

I know she can control light for self-censored and all.. but still...

Btw, some trivial in Schoolgirl Strikers that I just realised when rewatch Ep1: all 3 teams appeared in ep 1 (main group, the steampunk maid, and bikini military group) were in the same rank. (Rare 3 in the game based on their clothes and weapons). So their difference so far actually was just cooperation and experience

I think this makes a lot of sense. I don't see how any studio could screw this up tbh.
Tohru is obviously the main selling point of the series, and aside from the maid + badass dragon combination, her other most important character trait is that she's in love with Kobayashi-san. That's what makes her an attractive character too imo, and that's mostly what they can emphasise on to sell this character: her clumsily trying to be a maid (cute), her mentality and abilities as a dragon (op af) and her growing relationship with Kobayashi-san (sweet and moving).
Tohru's entire character is dependent on Kobayashi anyway. Tohru openly showing her love for Kobayashi-san through acts of service (literally becoming her maid lmao), jealousy, lust, being emotional over Kobayashi and adapting to the human world as her relationship with her develops is pretty much the 'plot'.
To kill the yuri/minimise Tohru's feelings/attraction to Kobayashi in the anime adaptation would be shooting themselves in the foot. Anyways, Kobayashi's own design is rather plain and androgynous (though I do like her), she's easily a self-insert. The yuri probs wouldn't step on anyone's toes, as she's generally so aloof to Tohru's advances. Whatever problems anyone has with how the yuri/Tohru's feels is written will have to be brought back to the original author.

Kinda suck that they removed a few jokes from ep 1 through.

The one in my avatar when Tohru was trying to compete with train for example. And try to convince Kobayashi to change her job to dragon rider (because it's cool). Or when Tohru defend her scale that it only can be penetrated by holy sword, and Kobayashi said her back is not an Excalibur.

Not to mention when she said that her tail was tasty and creamy and "good with rice". Because it hinted that she actually tried it before
