SYMBOLISM here is much easier to understand than Mawaru Penguindrum. How kind, Ikuhara-sensei!
Are your bears lesbians? If not, I don't think so.
Please, let me drive you home, anon.
Ikuhara, that glorious bastard made AOTS for us
I am the biggest beeps and bops fag there is, but Tekina doesn't really do it for me. Just sounds too light for me. Was happy he returned to a more metal like song on the new Tano*C album tho.
Wtf did I just watch?
* Dirty hands are moe
* Yuri is a catch-all word like smurfs
* Yuri is a title (eg: It would be like introducing myself as Starks: Heterosexual)
* Yuri is interchangeable with vore
* Class rep a bro
* Sumika lost the yuribowl or was at least disemboweled and kidnapped I hope she was eaten.
* This feels more sinister than Penguindrum. Sarin still gets bleeped and censored in Japan yet we're going all-in on yuri.
Here's a screenshot of that. I took it in VLC for symbolism.
There's also a bunch of minor errors such as capitalization, punctuation, and opening quotation marks being at the bottom of the text. You can watch it and understand what's going on, but this is like a line of pencils where one of them is not only sideways but also the wrong color.
And yes, VLC did waste time rebuilding the fucking font cache for no reason.
I talked to the guy and he said that they're not uploading until tomorrow.
It's true, anon, I can confirm. If you are that paranoid the posters count should go up to at least 33, from 32 when I posted since I haven't posted in this thread before now.
Introducing them with the title yuri was genius.
>I hope she was eaten
I'm pretty sure she was eaten in more ways than one. It does feel more sinister, and I get the sense that Ikuhara has a clearer idea of where he's going than he did in Penguindrum. They didn't waste any time throwing down the gauntlet in the first episode, so they must be planning to cover a lot of ground.
>with all streaming sites picking his subs
He probably wasn't planning that, but it's hilarious, and I have to give him a round of applause for pulling it off.
And as much as I bitch about the sub quality, watching it early was worth it. Good work, anon.
>[Asenshi] Yuri Kuma Arashi - 01 [97E8C378].mkv
>[Asenshi] Yuri Kuma Arashi - 01 [97E8C378].mkv
had to go to fansub database after seeing image just to check groups that were subbing it and check both just to see this image, why the fuck were you following asenshi and how do you expect people to know that it was them just from the image?
Very nice typesetting.
But not sure about them translating ''Yuri''.
Lily Bear Storm
I think it's better for consistence for it to be translated. Haven't watched the episode yet but from what I can tell the Lily will be a symbol much like the Apple was in Penguindrum, and I prefer for it to be translated instead of referring to the flower itself as Yuri.
Is that a goddamn CGI lilly
My ears are orgasming
It is literally someone whispering with a very rough edged voice. I loved Penguindrum's OP, but to me this is comparable to fingernails against chalkboard.
What if that's the point? What if Ikuhara's trying to use his style to convince you that it's something deep only to reveal at the final episode that it really was just cute girls doing cute things all along?
Gee, what a surprise.
just like Yuyuyu then. 10k sales by episode 7 here we come
>posting censored Tokyo MX version
>not uncensored AT-X
Why lesbians anyway?
The whole eat motif (actual eating and sexual) could easily be done with any sexual orientation. Is it just the chosen way to pander? Cause utena didn't pander in that manner.
lilies represent girls, the bears in this episode judge the love of the girls, but are under taboo rule that they have to go through a trial and get aproved for permission to pass judgement to humans.
They test the love of the lilies or yuris by symbolism of the nectar
Otherwise they will eat the human.
The invisible storm of lilies being cut from the garden is an omen of mass deaths in a school
This is probably about 70% right
Is this feminism?
Looks like the faggot is back. Remember to ignore him and watch him reply to himself
Yeah, the death throes of a young girl. Wasn't there some second-rate VA who had some terrible disease and was dying and there was that photo of the entire studio with her and they were wearing masks? Did they get her to sing this?
So episode one didn't even establish the bait premise.
Utena had find the prince by episode one.
Penguindrum had obtain the Penguindrum by episode one.
Dyke Bear Storm has nothing for the MC to go do after episode one.
"Kuma Arashi" - name of the book dedicated to accident
The reason why most yuri shows sell like shit is because yuri itself is too niche as a topic.
Same reason why Twintails flopped.
If you pander to a specific crowd it could result into pretty much everyone else ignoring you.
But we don't know how the incident is even being used. All we've got is bears blending into human society and eating a few whilst being 'lesbians' on the side. That incident could have very little meaning in the end.
