Yuri Kuma Arashi!

This is a newer project that Ikuhara's working on.  Like Utena, he's collabing with a manga artist and making an anime adaptation at roughly the same time!
The first chapter of the manga just came up today, and it seems like it'll be really awesome!
Here's a bit about the project: http://yurirec.tumblr.com/post/75192233 … uma-arashi
And here's the first chapter of the manga: http://dynasty-scans.com/series/yuri_kuma_arashi
I, for one, am super-super excited (but that might just be because I'm a sucker for yuri in general).emot-dance

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

I'm not going to lie, I flipped through this and the whole time was thinking 'Yep. This is Ikuhara.'

I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but it's certainly very uh, yuri.

Thanks so much for the link and the translation though! That happened fast--things have changed so much from when you couldn't get your hands on anything out of Japan, nevermind everything. emot-biggrin


Akio, you have nice turns of phrase, but your points aren't clear and you have no textual support. I can't give this a passing grade.

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

Jim thanks for the preview. After viewing the first episode link, I see this is a yuri. I may read the manga project just because Ikuhara is originating this project. I sure looked through the entire episode you posted. Yet, I may not continue to view more of this current Ikuhara offering because it is yuri. I like yuri, but I really try to avoid it like the DMV, Department of Motor Vehicles, on car registration day. It is easy to get stuck on this kind of stuff.

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

Yes. It's very Ikuhara and I am slightly worried, because Penguindrum was a mess.

But I looked up some of Morishima Akiko's (the manga artist) other work and damn... I was gonna give it a quick look, but I ended up reading a bunch of stuff. Narratively speaking and even in terms of art, she's good! And the yuri isn't some 'are they aren't they we just won't tell for sure', but a 'nope I'll work in several situations and conversations where I destroy anything which would suggest ambiguity or akogare'. I can't help but feel hopeful about that. And I'm imagining some nice scenario in which Ikuhara is throwing around ridiculous ideas and Morishima is like 'ok ok but let's structure that a little bit hmm hmm?' and beautiful collaboration and success happens~

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

because Penguindrum was a mess.

Sad but true in a way emot-gonk

So . . . does anyone know if there is gonna be an anime adaptation of this Yuri Kuma Arashi?  Or is this gonna be a manga project only?

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

I'm pretty sure that it's going to be a double project, with both an anime and a manga.

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

Well, I adored Penguindrum, so if it turns out as good I'll be happy.

I really liked the scene outside because I think the main girl (forgot her name) was going to admit to the other one that she liked girls. And then the other girl went totally off the rails with the bear theory and the MC was really touched that she'd be her friend even if she was an alien bear. So she didn't see the need to go on. I thought that was cute. (I could be totally wrong about what she had been planning to say though.) Looking forward to more!

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

Hmm . . . there's that thing about plain, non-outstanding people being 'transparent' again, just like in MP.

Does this mean 'transparent storm' is a metaphor for social pressure coming from the average janes surrounding the leading ladies?  To keep them from openly admitting their yuri-feels?

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

Maybe I'm reading a bit too much into this, especially so early in the series, but it's right now feeling like a reversal of the roles in SKU with the quiet wallflower protagonist seeking out the sporty extrovert instead of the other way around. I have some more wild speculations but I'm not prepared to share them and embarrass myself until a few more chapters come out.

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

Any word on when this is due out? I know the manga's beginning already, but I haven't heard any dates set for the anime.

Re: Yuri Kuma Arashi!

Sounds like fun, to be sure. I'm a little cautious, tho
