^^ the better question is why was this approved yet
Gamma, Shinozaki-san Ki wo Ota Shika ni! and Henceforward don't even get shorts?

Yes i know henceforward is a doujin but its tiers above whatever the hell RWBY is and monty should just animate this instead.

Well, I've watched Love Bullet.

KUMA SHOOOOOOCK!

Well, Ikuhara definitely hasn't lost any of his style and fabulousness... Though he seems to take a more blatant route and less subtle approach this time. Then again, it was only the first Episode, so...

I... I'm not sure exactly what I watched. (the fact that it had French subs sure didn't help, though. Damn you, CR!)
Just as confusing and (apparently) random as I expected it to be, I think. Only even more ludicrously, unabashedly yuri that even I thought possible. Character art was a bit bland, but the seiyuus weren't as bad as we feared them to be.
We'll have to see more to know if the man has really lost his touch, but I'm hopeful. He sure's as confident as ever, if not more so.

i only saw the first 5 minutes earlier because the subs were terrible, they still are but now i watched the full episode..........the fuck was that? my rant earlier still applies but seriously the fuck did i just watch?
nothing in that made any coherent sense whatsoever, except that
SPOILER: Show
our main characters girlfriend is dead in the first few minutes, oh hai there women in refrigerators.
also that something my mind can only equate to a threesome happened with the bears


and morishima........are you TRYING to out-moe your other works? cause i swear she usually is at least a tiny bit more subdued with her character designs.

read the manga for context: it is completely different, for one thing
SPOILER: Show
the whole bears thing? its all in our main characters imagination, ginko is not an actual bear and she doesnt eat people, our main character just dreamt up a super-heroine who looks sort of like her with a bear motif and ginko happens to like bears, thats IT.
ginko and our main also have a more...........traditional relationship and glasses girl? kureha is basically her, like literally they took her manga personality and her glasses (she has glasses in the manga) and made her a completely different character, it was just a standard coming out of your shell story, not whatever the fuck i just watched.

O M G. Those are awesome! Unfortunately I don't have a Crunchyroll-subscription, so I watched a Raw... But those subs seem to add to the experience! :lol: :lol:

True, not half as annoying as I perceived them in the trailer; actually they fit pretty well.

You're right, but after this first Episode, I'll gladly say it again: In Ikuhara I (still) trust.

Link to the manga if anyone cares: REDACTED first chapter only because it was dropped in favour of this lsd trip

Unless its pulling some mindfuck shit where the manga IS still canon and its doing a character study sort of shit.

edit: wait that was a lie, chapter 2 is on dynasty scans.

Don't get your hopes up. Manga is confirmed to be its completely own entity.

^ In Ikuhara I do (not) trust.
There are weak episodes, there are strong episodes, but i have actually never seen an anime actively make me want to turn away a nope the fuck out after the first episode.
This managed to do that however i have to TRY and find some good in this, maybe it will get better..........i hope.

Could you elaborate what you did not like about the first Episode? Just watched it again, I'm in love.

I see you're not familiar with Ikuhara's works

I'd love to see your reaction to Penguindrum's first episode, not (really) yuri but probably one of the weirdest first episodes you're likely to see. But even if Yuri Kuma Arashi turns into a trainwreck and you start to hate the man for the old pervert he's really is, you can't miss his surreal, ridiculously symbolic yuri masterpiece.

I'll just copy my post from dynasty scans, it gives a.......general idea:

ugh Ikuhara why.
I think i realized why i hated this so much........besides the total randomness and lack of a coherent plot or established characters.

its because its fucking monogatari.
no really, the fanservice passed off as symbolism, the impossible geometry, and i SWEAR there was a head tilt and in there somewhere.
this is a fucking monogatari spinoff!

(i know it isn't but that's what it feels like)


^i don't remember being confused at utena, the symbolism made.........some sense and general it was good, overhyped for me but good.

Ikuhara is making his latest show a horror anime.

That's my take on it. If I'm right, we're witnessing Ikuhara trying something completely different. And I can't be more excited.

lol, the older you get, the more jaded you become, the more you'll come to understand the Ikuness. I love the randomness, it literally pumps fresh air into my life.

But saying this was a spin off of Monogatari is an insult.

Also, this is Yuri Kuma Arashi might be full of the usual Ikuhara Shenanigans, but confusing it was not. The overall plot was pretty straight forward. Mysterious, and highly symbolic, but perfectly understandable.

I love, that he is still able to gracefully dance on the edge of seriousness and humour. He already did this in Penguindrum to great effect, and while he stumbled on rare occasions, overall it oozed atmosphere.

We must keep the balance, because that's ... SEXY. :lol: :lol: :lol:

The pastels and the dramatic architecture did give the little I scanned a Shinbo/SHAFTesque feel -- just that the gataris are their most well known and most blatant examples of that aesthetic.

Rob the plot was easy to understand, the story was what made no sense, those two things are separate.

And before you say it, yes i understand the bears and wall are an allegory for society's rejection of homosexuality, i got that part, i just dont like the way this was set up.
That was kind of obvious.
