[HorribleSubs] Yuri Kuma Arashi - 04 [720p].mkv
It just keeps getting better and better.
I want loli Lulu to put me in a box and kick me into lava
Why didn't she just try to mail her brother to the Bermuda Triangle like a normal kid?
Can we hope for happy ending?
Give me one reason why Beautiful is better than Cool.
The prince was so cute.
It doesn't matter because they are both inferior to SEXY.
That’s why one should use CR.
So, she had the bee from the beginning. They are also a symbol for virginity, that would fit the cockblocks it gave, and in the world of bears, the animals, the world of desire, wouldn’t this be the unacceptable form of love? You can’t love without sex there, so even before she had a target for that love, it already alienated people in the same way that god hates fags even if they don’t have a boyfriend.
The love Lulu was trying to suppress, was it too pure?
He was actually
a burr in human form
And Kureha's mom
was forced to kill him, which ended up with other burrs seeking revenge on her and killing her
knew both Kureha's mom and dad, and she feels guilty for not being able to stop both of them from dying and leaving Kureha all alone
I liked him best out of all the life bears before, but this episode proved life sexy is superior
You're doing Gods work.
While this episode wasn't bad. Lulu's characterization literally gave 0 indication of such a backstory in the three previous episodes.
It just all came out of left field. Was anybody else bothered by this?
She gave indication of it in episode 3.
Why Sumika such a slut?
Allowing another girl to eat you...
I don't think the bees are anything more than a representation of Lulu pushing people away that tries to keep in theme with the episode. You know, because of the honey and all.
Yesterday on the news they talked about a group of people who were rapelling on a rocky cliff when they were attacked by bees.
Two people died. I shit you not.
It happened in Brazil. Bees aren't even a dangerous issue in this country.
it was easy for me to look up the sauce, so here you go.
Sure yeah not attempting to diminish his role but other staff members are important too. Seems like she is a name to look out for in future, her episodes of Penguindrum were mostly good, this episode was good and Nozaki-kun was well executed. I will probably give anything she directs in future a shot at this point.
Will harem ending make Kureha happy(if Sumika stays dead)?
Because she's a spoiled princess who thinks the world revolves around her and she's above everybody else. Only Millm and Ginko manage to get within her bee barrier with the power of love.
It doesn't matter
Student Prez will make her happy, even if she has to imprint herself into Kureha's brain and make her forget about Sumika
I think it's more like people didn't try to get close to her in a genuine way. All the royal subjects were fawning over her because she was the princess, and she thought she enjoyed that, but you never see anyone try to get close to her until her brother came along.
Her brother and Ginko both easily got past the bee without Lulu doing anything.
Oh god, please no. It's all coming back already. Make it stop!
>All the royal subjects were fawning over her because she was the princess, and she thought she enjoyed that, but you never see anyone try to get close to her until her brother came along.
Watch the scene where she's at the throne at the beginning. The servants clearly try to step closer to her and are repelled by the bee.
Do you want german anon to translate it again in 1 hour?
The bee isn't associated with any behavior she's doing to keep people at bay. It's likely symbolic of her royal status. It's what makes people love her because she's the princess, but still keeps them at a distance due to their being conscious of the difference in rank. The servants are afraid of stepping out of bounds and getting close to her in fear of getting stung by the bee.
Me too, man.
That music at the end was really getting to me.
That makes sense, I guess. Last sighting of the bee is with Ginko or rather in the flashback, then her crown disappears along with the bee.
Queen bees don’t exactly respect their males a lot, but yeah, it doesn’t fit 100%.
> she mentions when they meet
that's not good enough, we don't get a hint about HER, as a CHARACTER, just a whole episode where she killed her little brother and then feels remorse.
What did you want her to say? She made it pretty clear that there was some backstory that needed to be expounded on.
We got that she had met Ginko in some important way that was going to be expounded upon later, and that Ginko had 'brought her love,' and that she wanted to protect Ginko's. You a shit.
Another thing is, the brother never pushed people away, and he’s royalty too.
Looking at it more closely though: It’s not that he didn’t push people away but more that they didn’t get very close to him in the first place. And all of those people are women.
>Japan heard that people hate hearing Cicadas in Anime for some unknown reason
>So they bio-engineered giant mass murdering killer hornets to counter-attack the Cicadas
>Surly this will fix the problem!
I know they can kill 40 bees in a minute according to Wikipedia.
>Hornets that have javelins for stingers
>Bees that will literally cook you alive
>A cold that will make you end up in the hospital
>Cicadas that don't SHUT THE FUCK UP
The East is a scary place
So, what is being a lesbian a metaphor for for in this show? In-universe, it is apparently something that everyone secretly does, but everyone jumps all over them when it comes to light.
Is it masturbation?
>Want to feed your loving family, so you decided to visit local shop and get some proteins
>Nigger bees surrounded you, because it's "their" territory and baked you alive
I think being a lesbian is literally the only thing in this show that's not a metaphor. Or if it is it's just used as a convenient way to show that everyone is "weird" and only once that weirdness is made public do you pay for it.
>30 japanese hornets versus 30.000 european honiebees
>Or if it is it's just used as a convenient way to show that everyone is "weird" and only once that weirdness is made public do you pay for it.
This is probably closer to the truth.
With everything being a metaphor for God-knows-what, there's no way that all the lesbo stuff isn't a metaphor. The fact that everyone also happens to be a lesbian has to mean that Ikuhara is commenting on the hypocrisy of shunning people for having the very traits you yourself possess.
So, Beauty was a guy all the time, damn I feel bad now.
Pfffhahaha you're gay now, what a faggot
So with all this talk about bees, wasps and hornets, which of those are we dealing with here anyway?
Japanese trucks are dread beings fuelled by the blood of cute schoolgirls.
Ain't you ever seen the dekotora, man? Japanese trucks are like if Elton John was a Transformer on steroids.
Eh she's most likely bi, given the events of this episode combined with the older ones. Yurifags are just butthurt.
Lulu’s brother is just a symbol for family in general, and more importantly children. Lulu wants to throw her love for family away, because she can’t balance it with her lesbianism and other lower desires. She then realizes how much of a degenerate she was and regrets having chosen to be a lesbo.
Truly the Gundam of yuri.
>because she can’t balance it with her lesbianism and other lower desires
Your post was fine (still wrong because her brother symbolizes love in general and there is no solid implication it is family in specific) until here.
So Lulu hated his brother, only after he died did she realized she actually loved him, and out of guilt for not giving him his "promise kiss" she vowed to help Ginko get hers?
Did I miss anything?
Also what does the bee/hornet that pushes people away from Lulu represent or is exactly? (note that it only pushes some people away like Sexy, Cool and Beauty but did nothing to Ginko)
YKA runs around the concept of imprinting. Lulu imprinted over her brother, what means he's her destined partner and no one can take his place. Lulu is basically Ginko's fangirl, she's projecting her failed love story into her so she supports her, like any regular shipper
No, it's more like this:
Lulu was the pampered daughter of her family until her little brother was born, and she resented him and treated him badly for taking the spotlight away. He still loved her dearly however and when he died she felt regret and grief because she did ultimately love him. Then she bumps into Ginko and finds out she's on a quest for love, so she supports Ginko.
When she gave up her kiss it's her giving up on her own love, but she still believes in Ginko's love.
That's the gist of it, yeah.
The only people who are shown within the hornet's circle are Lulu herself, Ginko and her brother. I figure it's about keeping people away from or letting people near your heart.
>The bee represents personal space
>The bee represents the distance she feels between herself and others as a results from her rank as a princess
>The bee represents who she allows to become close with her
>The bee represent virginity
Also, does the fact that nothing killed Mirun except the bees, and that curiously enough Lulu has a bee keeping people she doesn't like at bay. Does that whole thing have some kind of symbolism that I'm not seeing?
>thread complaining about staff being shit
>thread op with anons not knowing wtf is going on
and yet there still seems to be a sizable amount of people that continue to watch
i can only guess you folks enjoy some sort of weird torture
Either because you're raging a yurifag
or because you're a raging homo for Beauty
Lulu rejecting her brother and all the suitors was symbolic of male characters getting in the way of yuri. The hornet that was always around her was symbolic of the actual make audience not wanting men to get near her. Or I'm just looking too deep into this.
I think you might be looking at things from a /u/ perspective.
It's clear from this thread that we haven't still reach consensus about the actual meaning about many things in this episode.
What you said might be right answer, might be not.
>The hornet that was always around her was symbolic of the actual make audience not wanting men to get near her.
If that were the case, why was the prince not affected by the bee?
If he asks you for a kiss will you give it to him /a/?
I don't kiss boys,
I don't kiss anyone.
Should I be watching this show?
I've never seen an Ikuhara production but I'm intrigued.
I knew someone will use that joke sooner or later
Yes, that's what I think too, but that anon said
>The hornet that was always around her was symbolic of the actual make audience not wanting men to get near her.
Which I think is bullshit. That's why I mentioned the female servants to disprove his conjecture.
How the fuck does that even happen to your pants?
Find a way to get subs quicker.
Only hard subs show up in my screenshots.
>implying I'd want to discuss the show with impatient casuals who can't wait for better subs
Kureha already won the SumikaBowl and she'll find a way to keep it
>not watching the episode twice and discussing it all week
Nice dubs, faggots.
>Implying Student Prez will allow such a thing
When she says something is hers, it's hers
Hey, it gives me a good reason to watch the episode twice and complain about funi shitty translation
Very well, I was using k-lite mega, but madvr not showing soft subs was really annoying me. Anything else ruin the color, hope kawaii fix this.
Sluttiest lesbian I've seen in a while
That's actually a good point:
Kisses=the love of a person
Love=resolve or determination
By not giving up on Love Lulu acknowledges that even though she lost her kisses (love) she still believes it can exist for other people (Ginko)
Kind of like the opposite of people that hate couples because relationships have never worked out for them
Any theories about her room yet?
Like a horror movie referrence or something
Not him, but I assumed kisses were the fulfilment of love.
Giving up kisses = giving up on fulfilling love (ie no chance of being in a romantic relationship with the person you love)
Giving up love = giving up on love but still holding the opportunity for loveless kisses
Yeah, not working either
man yurifags are paranoid as fuck
they're all gay, bro
She had tons of things and she was happy. Those were taken from her when the prince was born and her room was empty and bare. Then the prince died and her room was full of things yet she was unhappy.
It's pretty standard symbolism. Aside from the painting, I doubt there's anything worth mentioning about what she owns.
Except for Lulu who is just a brocon
People actually think that someone who blatantly sniffed a girl's vagina, spread her legs to seduce another girl, and licks honey out of a girls lily, is straight simply because she loves her brother?
Oh and I thought yurifags are delusional
Why not go back to /u/ then, literally no one wants you faggots here
I'm not even a yurifag you sick incest loving-freak
I am a yurifag and an incestfag and the princes are the only straight characters of that show.
Best episode yet. Felt like I was watching a different show for a minute. This scene in the kitchen was really nice.
It doesn't matter much thematically to be honest. The important part is the emotional luggage part and the love → promised kiss format of this luggage. If that kiss is an innocent kiss of affection between siblings or a romantic kiss doesn't affect her place in the story or motivations much as far as we can tell by now.
Of course, to yurifags it's probably the most important thing to understand about her..
>implying Ikuhara gives a fuck about making characters straight or gay
Didn't you watch Utena? To Ikuhara people are attracted to people and that's it. Gender is a secondary issue when it comes to love in his anime.
>ITT: Hetfags so desperate for cocks they will interpret family love as Incest
