Today we will be looking at the feel-good yuri anime this season, Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san. It is no coincidence that I will be writing to you about this, as I friggin' love yuri, even if it does take its toll on my man-card to watch. Except, you know, not really. Since it's basically soft lesbian action. Hubba-hubba. Don't hit me for doing that questionable noise. Now, I can't say I expected a whole lot of fun with this title, as I thought it to be a sappy love story before watching it. I didn't realize it would be an anime style short that makes me laugh as hard Seitokai Yakuindomo. Seriously, it's just that good. Plus, it doesn't have the more adult humor of SYD, allowing yougner audiences to enjoy it without feeling as if they should be watching it in a dark room. Nekoyama's tsundere act will have you 'hnnnnghing' harder than a man having a stroke, and your eyes will subconciously follow Inugami's ponytail waggle. Don't listen to this show in public, lest you get weird stares, and make sure to have your headphones strapped on for some of the more.....risque scenes.



InuxNeko, since the full title is crazy annoying to write out every time, is the slice of life, romantic comedy story of two girls, Inugami, a dog-like girl who loves cats, and Nekoyama, a cat-like girl who loves dogs. Accompanied by Hiiragi, the straight woman to their crazy duo, as well as classmates Nezu and Ushikawa, they get into all sorts of Yuri style hijinks. For those of you who are bilingual, or learning, you'll have some fun with the names. Whereas Inu is similar to her namesake, and Neko is to hers, Nezu is quite like her namesake as well, the rat. Ushikawa is, ahem, very similar to the animal she is named for without a doubt in my mind. Mhm. Yes, the plot is strong in that one. Udder-ly fantastic. A moo-ving performance. Be careful laughing, you might bust a rib. I have no beef with this title. Sorry. Kinda milked that joke, eh?



I, the great and mighty as well as roguishly handsome and charming, Phersu approve this for your Yuri viewing pleasures. I really can't wait for more of both of the anime and the manga, as both are quite hilarious. Good fun for the whole family! Ahem. Maybe. Probably not for really young kids, or those offended by same sex relationships. I'm looking at you, Westboro. Don't make me come over there and spank you again. You know you love it. You can catch the simulcast on Thursdays 11:30am MST.

Short shows are easy to pick up, and more yuri is always a good thing. It is indeed light on the yuri aspect, but I think the humor is considerably adult enough. Enough to be targeted at a seinen audience. But I fear the show has poorly used its potential, too many episodes have been plainly introducing new characters, and as much as I appreciate the thought of potential interactions a Tori can have with Nekoyama and Inugami, it's just too focused on the wrong things with how little time they have to work with. Plenty of good though, Nekoyama being vulnerable to catnip-like effects is weird but completely great in their usage of it.

Another short of this season (at 15min. though), The Comic Artist and His Assistants, manages to have ongoing character introductions, and still some of the best humor. The main character is also my favorite kind, a man that is properly manly, admitting to perversions and maintaining others best interests with respect. It's currently progressing toward being my second highest-scoring short of all time.

I really wish it were a full length and had more character development, although I realize that like many other shorts of this type, its meant to hit hard and fast and leave you laughing.

I personally find it cute, not funny, and doubt it will ever make me really laugh, whereas some longer more intellectual pieces [which I shall not presently name] I have watched have left me laughing until my tummy ached.
