Yuyushiki Episode #01 Anime Review

Based on the four panel manga series of the same name, Yuyushiki is a new twelve episode series animated by Kinema Citrus and directed by Kaori. The show is based off of the manga that began back in 2008 by Komata Mikami which has four volumes to its name so far. And it kind of breaks a recent trend where four panel comics were getting adapted as short-form anime series, which has generally worked out fairly well from my perspective. Yuyushiki instead goes for the more traditional full length episode format, but it breaks it up with varying length stories within each episode. And that does help to make it enjoyable as it’s not overplaying any particular gag and lets the characters all have their individual moments to shine. But there’s the downside in that there feels like there’s less of an overall narrative to really bind it all together.
