Did Ikuhara succeed in creating the Gundam of yuri?

It was even shittier than Gundam, so no.

wouldn't the Gundam of yuri have multiple series spanning across several worlds and centuries

Do I get a better understanding of this show if I bingewatch this?

You'll get a better understanding by watching it a second time.

>>123332817
Maybe, but rewatches will definitely help.

Some people actually watched all episodes?
>>
>>123332882
how do you watch a show without doing so
>>
>>123332817
Bingewatching Ikuhara's shows is not a good idea.
He loves repeating scenes and phrases over and over and over again, slowly changing their meaning but not the content as the story develops.

It's an interesting rhetoric device, but it means it could drive you insane.

It was fantastic. Lulu, Mitsuko, Yuriika were all top-tier bears.

What studio should Ikuni work with next?
Penguindrum + Brains Base were undoubtedly the best so far, but now Brains Base has gone to shit.

Where does this "bingewatching" come from?
Recently I've seen this a bunch of times on /a/ but I never heard it before that so I guess it's some foreign thingy. I only know about marathoning a series.
>>
>>123334124
depends on what you're trying to get out of it. if you're a DEEPfag, being able to digest episodes requires some pause between. if you're just there for the show, it doesn't really matter
>>
>>123334488
Bingewatching is the normalfag term for marathoning.
>>
>>123334488
Same thing. Bingewatching just makes it sound more degenerate.
>>
>>123334488
it's the normalfags way of saying "marathoning" series. it came to be with the advent of netflix and hulu and other streaming sutes

Does she mean that she was the first one to desire it? That line confuses me a bit cause they both desired for the same thing, but Kureha implies here that her wish played major role.

are those even barely /m/ related? i would think kantai would fit better

>>123335020

should be like a 2 or 3 episode OVA if the original creator of the lite novel allows Ikuhara to do his magic once again!

Also, did that red file cabinet box came from Yuriika's office?
>>
>>123335405
/m/ has GEAH threads and Nanoha is the White Devil.
>>
>>123335396
hers was a selfish wish, ginko's was a sacrifice. the storybook explains that in order to break the barriers between lovers, you must kill "yourself" meaning you must be selfless to your partner. it would have ended more sweetly for everyone if she hadn't had "pride"
>>
>>123335458
>should be like a 2 or 3 episode OVA if the original creator of the lite novel allows Ikuhara to do his magic once again!
What do you mean by this? The LN is an adaptation of the anime, not the other way around.

>Also, did that red file cabinet box came from Yuriika's office?
Of course.
>>
>>123335506
i don't understand how they count is mecha, i guess
>>
>>123332817
I waited until the last three episodes were out to watch it and it made a world of difference for me.
>>
Was Sumika actually Kumalia in disguise or did Kumalia simply appear as Sumika to Kureha?
>>
>>123335859
The latter, she takes the form of the person who taught the character true love, which is why Ginko occasionally calls Kureha 'Kumalia-sama'.
>>
>>123335458
>>123335567
waaaaaat

so Yurikuma is original anime and not something ripped from games or LNs like most anime these days???

Maybe it was because there were only 12 episodes but everything was so roundabout and nonprogressive. And not roundabout as in re-using scenes a shitload like Ikuhara loves to, but plot wise they just kept restating the same things again and again while hardly doing anything with it. Characters were pretty stiff too, in a non enjoyable kind of way.
Biggest fault was that there was no concrete villian though: just faceless society and various people of the week.
>>
>>123335960
Correct.
>>
>>123336005
Shibireru did nothing wrong though, so he isn't a vilain.
>>
>>123336005
>Biggest fault was that there was no concrete villian though: just faceless society
That's the fucking point of the whole series.
>>
No.
5/10
Show's quality is incredibly inconsistent. >>123332817
Ikuhara's works really aren't that pretentious. As a director he just prefers to show things to you symbolically but it's not done to be obfuscating it's just what he does. There isn't a lot of reaching or preaching in his shows.
>>
>>123332615
Well that was awful. It's a good thing my time is worthless or I'd genuinely be mad about wasting it on this garbage.
>>
>>123336005
>Biggest fault was that there was no concrete villian though: just faceless society and various people of the week.
This is one of the best aspects, though.

Now that bears are officially yuri, the next step is SWORDS.

1. You're not using "...of the week" correctly. Go refresh your memory with some kids shows or something.
2. As people have pointed out, the lack of the concrete villain was the one of the biggest parts of the story. The face of the Invisible Storm was everyone and no one.

so what's going on with the manga now?

does it prove that ginkureha are both dead and their spirits are now with kumaria?

>>123336554
Manga is its own thing, Morishima is doing what she wants (more or less).
>>
>>123336554
I don't know either, only have read the first chapter and if I'm not mistaken the manga follows a different history.
>>
>>123336600
She actually affected the anime. Originally the court trio were going to be girls that had guy voices. She decided to just make them guys and the anime followed.

Best girl. Also, what is up with the red bee that was circling these two, and it was also in Lulu's flashbackstory episode. What was the deal with that thing?? What was it supposed to symbolize??

Yes. Having past episodes fresh in your mind helps.

Why Kureha wish to be with Ginko instead of Sumika? Not only Sumika was Kureha's true love but she happens to be Kumaria-sama. Why fuck a filthy bear instead of a goddess? It doesn't make sense

Is this show as deep as evangelion?
>>
>>123337460

Kumaria and Sumika represent the same thing in Kureha's mind, which is Love/Hope. So to Kureha, she looks like Sumika.

What does the T in LGBT stand for?

>>123337956
NGE isn't that deep, so yes.

i'm just saying that Kumaria can look different to anyone

for example, Kumaria appeared to Kureha as Sumika

The term has existed long before that.

Blame services like Netflix and Amazon Prime that have been releasing series full seasons at a time for the past few years.

"bingewatch" to me is an easier sound to make than marathon.

>>123332615
I usually love analyzing and thinking about the possible meanings but not so much with Yuri Kuma.
I don't think it's all obvious but for some reason things that I didn't understand don't really bother me this time around.
It feels more like an emotional ride than an actual piece of art that I want to think about. Don't know whether or not that means that Ikuhara failed but I like the show quite a bit.

Can someone clarify me on this: wasn't the mirror already broken by Kureha (or was it Ginko) earlier?

They both had to break their own mirrors, meaning they had to sacrifice aspects of themselves to share a promised kiss.
