This Anime Should Not Be Overlooked
13 February 2017 | by zanemczanealotSee all my reviews

A surprisingly emotional story chocked full of metaphors and symbolism that my brain was not even remotely prepared for, Yuri Kuma Arashi is a visually gorgeous piece with a tragic yet beautiful plot.

However, for the first couple episodes, the story made zero sense to me. The repetition of certain scenes mixed with a gratuitous amount of what seemed to only be fan service was enough for me to actually stop watching for a while. I was reminded of the show by a friend and gave it a second chance, and I'm very glad I did.

You will be confused. You will not understand things. You will bear (no pun intended) witness to one of the most shockingly heartbreaking endings of all time. THE OPENING IS A LIE. NO ONE IS HAPPY.

I won't give you a summary, because in a weird way, a description of the plot will not do this series justice. I can tell you, however, it's about a lot of societal issues and focusing on what we're willing to sacrifice for love.

This anime is insanely powerful. Just thinking of it again is making me get choked up. If you can just get on board for the first couple episodes, I promise you, this is a series worth getting invested in. It's only twelve episodes long, and they only get better with each passing one.
