Natsume Yuchinjou San Ep. 2 & Yuru Yuri Ep 2 [Boobslap, Ouch]

Yuru Yuri Akarin Chinatsu Anime Episode 2 Review Loli Boobslap

Freaking god, ouch! Never thought that I would see this in an anime, and Akarin’s boob dribbling comment just made me lose all control. I couldn’t stop laughing. So yes, this show is full on the laughs and the randomness, but that’s perfectly fine. This show’s humor is its saving grace, even if it doesn’t have a coherent plotline.

Natsume Yuuchinjou San Episode 2 Review Anime Nyanko Sensei

This dude voiced Shinji

I just realized something. The seiyuu of Natsume sounds like/is the seiyuu for Beelzebub from Yondemasuyo Azazel-san and Shinji from Fate/Stay Night. He’s got quite the pedigree, indeed. That doesn’t excuse him from my scrutiny however and this latest episode was a bit of a bummer. After its strong first episode, the second one proved to be a bit weaker in all departments, mainly in how smoothly everything was handled.

Natsume Yuuchinjou San Episode 2 Review Anime Nyanko SenseiNatsume Yuuchinjou San Episode 2 Review Anime Nyanko SenseiNatsume and Nyanko are strolling along a road when they notice that a bunch of yokai are getting rowdy in the bushes (not like that, you perv!). They question the yokai and find out that Tanuma’s father, the priest of the temple, has vanished and that a rogue yokai spilling a deadly miasma has awakened. Natsume decides to deal with it later but runs into another yokai on a bridge. She claims to be the rogue yokai’s sister and asks for his name. As Natsume is about to do so, she attacks him. At that very moment, one of Natsume’s yokai allies saves him. Afterwards, Natsume visits Tanuma’s house since he learned of his recent cold. He finds that no one’s at home. Instead, he discovers an old map of the temple. Using the map, he follows a trail and winds up in a clearing, with a giant yokai smack-dab in the middle of it all.

Natsume Yuuchinjou San Episode 2 Review Anime Nyanko Sensei ReikoThe yokai tells Natsume that he was from an otherworldly village called Ukihara and tells him his tale. Natsume proceeds to give him back his name but is interrupted by the same yokai that tried to kill him before. Luckily for everyone, she is bound by the other yokai and he returns to his village. In the aftermath, Tanuma reveals to Natsume that he’s been seeing yokai but is reassured that nothing went wrong.

I just started with this show and was so caught up in all the yokai business that I forgot to consider the possibility that Natsume had friends. And what do you know? Despite having powerful ability, he didn’t let it stop him from making friends. In that sense, Reiko’s story becomes even sadder. How miserable of a life did she lead, all alone…

Yuru Yuri

Yuru Yuri Akarin Chinatsu Anime Episode 2 Review Loli KyoukoYuru Yuri Akarin Chinatsu Anime Episode 2 Review Loli AyanoYuru Yuri Akarin Chinatsu Anime Episode 2 Review Loli AyanoThe yuri jokes were funny when they came the first time around, but after a while, they started to grow stale. Quickly. I’m sure that everyone knows that three is the golden number, the magic number. Think of all the good things that come in threes: the Triforce, the first three Star Wars movies (not the prequels), and eyeballs (what, you don’t have three eyes?). That being said, the show should have stopped with the yuri jokes after the third time in this episode. I would have allowed them to keep it as a running gag throughout the series to induce a chuckle every once and again, but the frequency of these jokes is crazy. They try to pop one in every scene.

And what about Akarin? It’s evident that she’s being overshadowed by her friends. Heck, she was even blurred out in the beginning segment. I know that’s another joke in their repertoire, but really, got anything better? And the yuri undertones don’t help much either.

  1. Let’s be optimistic tomphile, Yuruyuri is sure a great way to relax watching mindlessly these girls playing around! :D

    • I am optimistic, I laughed out loud with the boob-slapping schtick. It’s just that Chitose (Is that her name) is soooo bland. Even if it was Yui’s seiyuu, I is disappoint. :C

  2. Honestly, every single time I watch Yuru Yuri it’s like getting slapped in the face by the slice of life moe monster, if that makes any sense at all. I guess the only reason I didn’t drop it after the first 5 minutes of the first episode is because it’s summer, I’m rather bored, and Yuru Yuri is somewhat amusing to watch. Bahh…

  3. It’s clearly not as funny as the first episode. If the jokes goes on like that it might get old lol. Nonetheless it’s still a very enjoyable and relaxing show. I actually though they’re gonna focus the amusement club room for most of the time. Glad they didn’t though. And lol I watch it for Kyoko too.

    • That’s a problem with any anime isn’t it? Getting a bit too stale, a bit too quickly?

      I watch it for Kyoko because she’s full of win, I just feel sorry for Akarin since nobody pays attention to her. Heck, the anime basically shoves a bunch of dirt in her face by ignoring her.
