Yuri Kuma thread
And then Kureha was the bears edition
You guys weren't kidding when you said Yuri Kuma was a step down from Penguindrum.
I don't think she's a bear at all. Remember the wall is between the human world and the bear world. Just like bears can stand trial to go into the human side, humans can do the same to go to the bear side. Cool, Cute, and Sexy are neither bear nor human but Lady Kumalia herself. A holy trinity if you will. Sound familiar?
Yuri Kuma doesn't have the same level of ambition as Penguindrum, but it's a smaller project. I'd say wait until the show has finished to make your judgements.
Oh, you aren't even into the meat of Penguindrum, then. You might be the kind of person who gravitates towards the down-to-earth stalker antics arc, in which case you could end up not liking where the show goes.
>I'm only about 7 episodes in and it's much better so far, in my opinion
Oh anon, you have no idea how many shows started promising. You do not even know the real colors of the sibling affairs so yes, it's too early for you to compare the two
What are you talking about? The bears totally devour the penguins.
Penguindrum started running out of gas and got too convoluted imo. Coupling that with the fact that Ikuhara changed the story's focus after a disaster in Japan also gives it more of a less-than-impressive feel. Yuri Kuma's been consistently going strong by packing everything in; blending drama, comedy, suspense, theatrics and being pretty creative overall.
By the time Penguindrum was in it's last third, it felt like an overstaying guest whereas Yuri Kuma is like a party in a small package.
Of course I'm likely speaking too soon, but that makes the wait for the end more fun.
What do you mean by "ambition"? The pizzaz of the SEIZON SENRYAKUUUUUU? The musical segments? (Shit I forgot how fun the latter was.)
I'm merely curious; not trying to argue.
The object to your right, your favourite exotic animal and the way you felt that day are the subject of Ikuhara's next anime!
