Yuragi-Sou no Yuuna-san (First Impression)
I got my first taste of Yuragi-Sou no Yuuna-san from the OVA episode that they released ahead of the first episode and I enjoyed it quite a bit! Though the ecchi is a bit overwhelming and the characters cliche, I still find it charming enough to keep watching!
Plot (In my own words):
Fuyuzora Kogarashi, a young man who is also a spirit medium, finally finds a place to stay after being pretty much homeless for a while. As a child, he was often possessed by spirits which led to a variety of problem and causing him a lot of trouble. He finds himself at the Yuragi-Sou, a boarding house that also has a hot spring! The only problem is that it’s said to be haunted by someone who had died in the hot springs long ago. Turns out the spirit is Yuuna, young girl who just loves being at the springs and refuses to pass on to the afterlife. Can Kogarashi survive the living with Yuuna and the other tenants despite their crazy lifestyles?
Yuragi-Sou no Yuuna-san’s comedy has a To-Love Ru type of approach, ecchi scenes leading the front lines. If ecchi anime isn’t your thing, I would recommend avoiding this one but as for ecchi fans, this is a delight! As it has been a while since a full-blown ecchi anime has aired, at least from my memory. The art looks pretty solid, not mind blowing but it definitely has an aesthetic that we’ve seen again and again in many popular shows.
