10 Second Anime - YuruYuri S3 - Episode 12 [END]

The girls enjoy their company while viewing cherry blossoms. The Amusement Club pulls an all-nighter to help Kyoko finish her fan book. Season Finale.

Episode 12 - "Cherry Blossoms in Full Bloom and a Romantic Storm"


How nice. All the preparations for the flower viewing from last week saw their culmination this week.

The strange party decorations gave Akari a nice boost for using up all her luck. Those pink afros really didn't help anyone, though.

The antics of the little viewing party were pretty much a recap of the entire season. Sakurako's bad spelling was referenced as was Yui's fear of bugs and her recruitment by the track club when she ran away so fast.

Good friends had a good time together.

The second half was a nice way for the main four of the Amusement Club to have their own special time together and for Kyoko to thank them all for making their unofficial club so great.

There were some sweet nostalgic moments there, especially how Kyoko found the key to the room but waited a year to invite the third member of the Amusement Club so Akari could join her and Yui.

Of course, there were jokes about Chinatsu's special art form.

Kyoko may be the star of the Amusement Club, but the heart of the show is Akari. At least she had a chance to be the Star of the Day, if only for a little while.

Final Thoughts.

There's not much to say about a cute-girls-do-cute-things slice-of-life anime other than to decide if it works or not and draws a chuckle or two. It's hard to believe that there could be a third season's worth of material to mine from some junior high school girls living through the same year, but with fun characters helped out by their sisters, YuruYuri never lacked.

I will say there seemed to be more yuri than yuru from previous seasons, but I'm sure that was only because we had a chance to see how the sisters of the second tier also had their own relationships with their girlfriends. It was all good!

A different animation studio took over from the previous two seasons, so it was a bit jarring in the beginning, but the voice actors were the same, the writing followed the old rhythms and the laughter followed. All in all, the third season of YuruYuri was an enjoyable half hour of comedy each week. I hope it's not too long before we see the familiar gags of Akari's hair buns and Chinatsu's bad art again.
