PostSubject: Yuki Yuna Is A Hero    28th December 2014, 11:11 am

I discover this anime from a Crystal tumblr blog. The owner of the blog and people in the asks were gushing over it so I had to check it out. I have only seen one episode, but I love it. 



Quote :
Yuna Yuki is an ordinary second-year middle school student. She gets up in the morning, gets ready for school, goes to classes, participates in club activities, and has fun with her friends. But there is one extraordinary thing about Yuki -- she belongs to the “Brave Hero Club.” What does the Brave Hero Club do? Who is the mysterious being called “Vertex?” Yuki Yuna and her friends’ story takes place in Year 300, Era of the Gods.

watch it here

12 episodes long.

Like Madoka it's a tragic magical girl show. But I find this show more appealing and I heard it gets better as it goes on. The animation beautiful and the transformations are awesome!!

I love Yuuki Yuuna! I finished the whole anime a couple days ago! I do find the ending very questionable, though.

Spoiler:
 

But I don't let its problems kill my enjoyment of the anime. It was a lot of fun. But I can't stand Karin! God, is she annoying!

Well the show did foreshadow the ending. ^^*

Also, Itsuki's the best developed and my favorite character.

I love them all so much. <3 <3

I cried my eyes out when I watched episode 8 through 11 back to back.

Yuki Yuna will never be as critically successfully as Madoka. The enemies of Madoka are more iconic. The story is a bit more coherent and the music completely outdoes its successor.

That being said, Yuki Yuna is a Hero is an excellent magical girl anime. I'm currently writing a review now that I've finally seen all the episodes. I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the relationship between Fu and Itsuki. My own sister is my best friend and I never once doubted their connection.

If Yuki Yuna does anything better than Sailor Moon Crystal... Hold on there, it does everything better than that. The correct statement is that if Yuki Yuna does anything better than Madoka, it's that the main character is worth a damn. No offense to fellow Madoka fans, but Madoka is almost an entirely useless character. Yuna is worth cheering for and she earns her title as a hero.

I saw a tumblr post about this ages ago, particularly regarding that one of the girls actually maintains her handicap after transformation. 

Another tragic magical girl show? I'm gonna be all over this. Thanks for the link guys! and keep tagging spoilers

Now that I'm on my laptop I can reply to this! =)

I watched only the half of episode one of Madoka. It didn't hold my attention at all. However I pretty much know the series because of tumblr and forums. After reading up on the series, I felt like I missed nothing. The characters seem forgettable and even my friend who watched it admitted that to me. She didn't feel anything for the Madoka girls. 

As for Yuki Yuna, Yuna and her friends are indeed worth a damn. I grew to love all of these girls. The show took a time to form their friendships with each other. Upon seeing the first episode I knew the girls were already tight. Just judging by their interactions with each other.  The show eases you into the tragic stuff and even takes a break from it. What kept me going was the girls' optimism. I was pleased with the ending. Some fans call it a cop out, but I for one welcome it. I love happy endings and times passes so I feel it's believable. Plus watching the ending credit of the last episode warms my heart!!! Plus this show gives me what Crystal didn't! Cute girls kicking butt! That's why I watch magical girl shows. Cuteness and action. Also the fact that it's a 12 episode series and was to make the girls' friendship believable. 

I wasn't expecting greatness from this show. I feel like people need to stop expecting something epic from magical girl shows. I enjoyed it for what it was. A group of girls over coming a tradgey and becoming true heroes. 

I look forward to your review, CJ. I enjoy reading your blog.

CJ has a blog? Where? I'd love to check it out!

But I have to admit, I can't stand Karin as a character. She did nothing throughout the entire show except be arrogant and bratty and pompous until episode 11. Honestly, you could cut her out of the show and nothing would be lost. She just felt forced, and her ear bleedingly high pitched voice is doing her no favors.

I enjoyed her character, but I love arrogant characters. I loved her fights with Fuu.

Here is my blog! I just posted my Yuki Yuna review to it. Thanks, Yami. That really means a lot to hear that you like my writing.

I totally agree, Yami. I think that people hyped this show way too much. Magical girls don't need to be bombastic game changers like Madoka. It was perfect for what it was.

And as for Karin. I actually liked her and thought she had a great character arc, perhaps the best in the whole show. Without spoiling, I was totally devastated by her actions in Episode 11. I was practically in tears. It was amazing to see her grow from a cold and callous girl to one who didn't think twice about giving up everything for her friends.

Agree CJ, I thought Karin was a lovely attention to the team. 

As for your review, the one thing that did bother me while watching it was the villain.

Just in case:

Just watched this yesterday after reading through all the posts!

I honestly really hated the first two episodes. Everything was so slapdash that I just couldn't get into it. I would've liked it better if there had been more characterization before the reveal that they're magical girls.

In the end though

Spoiler:

Alright! We're getting it! I just hope they don't pull what they did to madoka, 20-50$ for 4 episodes. >.>

Unfortunately, that seems to be the case, Cosmos.
