Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid

I’m sorry, but I was told that this was anime? Did they get the shows mixed up or something? I am pretty sure I watched twenty something minutes of pure Hentai. Ecchi is one thing, but when dozens of female characters indulge in hard-core lesbianism…

Valkyrie Drive MermaidI hate that the artwork looks pretty good. I’m just saying… The girls look cute and interesting and their weapons look pretty cool. I also like that they aren’t going nuts by censoring everything even though it’s an ecchi show, which would make watching it pretty pointless.

The story is just insane. Two girls arrive on some weird island where all girls indulge in sexual acts in order to fight one another. What kind of person comes up with this stuff? I’m pretty sure drugs are involved.

Ecchi and Hentai fans will love this. People that prefer a good story and/or a good balance between Ecchiness and a good story, like me, might have doubts about this. I’ll be waiting for the second episode for now, but this could go either way.

Plot Summary: In a world where five artificial islands exists, Mamori is a “mermaid” transferred to one of those islands. When Mamori is attacked, a newly transferred girl named Mirei saves her. The enemy doesn’t stop, however, and the two are soon cornered. Just when they think all hope is lost, Mirei kisses Mamori, and Mamori turns into a sword. Mirei then wields the sword and launches a counterattack against their enemies.

Yuru Yuri San☆Hai!

This is a typical example of how messed up the Japanese are. They make something with girls as the target audience, only to find out later that the majority of fans are male. Can you really be surprised by that?

Yuru Yuri San☆Hai!Look at the artwork; it’s about a group of girls and their roundabout school lives. They will play, mess around and do all sorts of ‘cute’ and girly stuff and it’s that sort of thing that attracts girls, but also a whole lot of guys.

As I’ve stated in many of my reviews; I don’t particularly like slice of life anime. It’d have to be pretty darn good for me to be excited about it. This simply isn’t one of them. I find that the story becomes dull sometimes.

I understand the first season. I can even understand the second season and some of the specials, but I did not expect a third after it turned out that the second season did not do as well as they had hoped.  If you know the Yuru Yuri series then go for it.

Plot Summary: The middle school days of Akari and co. resume normally as they enjoy their fun times together again.

Yuri Kuma Arashi

Oh dear lord… I definitely haven’t been waiting for this one. I read the summary and then I decided to read up on it just a little more because I couldn’t fully understand the summary, after which I came to the conclusion that I probably would not like this.

Yuri Kuma ArashiGood to finally know that I was right. This was just dreadful. The artwork was kind of like Monogatari gone very, very wrong. The characters just didn’t fit into the surroundings and a lot of things were simply out of place. It was very rough on the eyes.

Then the story kicked in. In a lesbian world filled with girls that hide behind a huge wall in order to separate themselves from boys (or bears as they call them). Something like that, right? What a huge load of uninteresting crap.

This is what happened; a guy got really, really drunk (and high) and someone this idiotically gay idea popped into his head and voila; we have new material for an anime adaption. Holy mother of… Kill me. This was definitely created by a guy. I won’t be watching this and I don’t think you should either.

Plot Summary: Far off in space, the asteroid Kumaria blew up, sending bits and pieces to rain down on Earth. For reasons unknown, this causes all the bears (“kuma” in Japanese) to simultaneously rise up and begin attacking humans. Finally, a giant “Wall of Severance” was built to divide them from each other and end their ceaseless war and hatred. In the human world, at Wuthering Heights Academy, Kureha and Sumika are friends who’ve fallen in love. When they find a lily blooming in their favorite flower bed, their eyes meet…and all at once the Bear Alarm starts ringing, signalling that the human world is under attack.
