So… I saw a post trying to compare that new Steam release for the Hanabira series… To Metal Gear. Says it’s the Metal Gear Solid of Yuri. And it got me thinking about something. When was Yuri ever good? First I’ll show you what I wanted to post on the Steam review. Then I’ll go into more detail about the Genre.
1: This game series is by far not such a thing. It has like zero interaction, About as much interaction as a Metal Gear Solid game where you just push a stick forward and click one button and Snake is just running on his own and no scoping everything as if he had a bot running his aiming. They lack a bad end for not making the main expected choices, and there are no penises to qualify an asinine name like Solid Snake to be anything like Metal Gear. Unless it’s got a hunk of a dude rescuing the president or some shit, it’s a shit statement to call this the Metal Gear of anything.
2: Metal Gear is pure quality. This series is known for glorifying lesbians raping lesbians (Female double standards), lesbians peeing on lesbians, and lesbians being extremely neurotic and impossible to understand. Sometimes I can barely call these girls “lesbians” since I feel they would have been just as satisfied if they were getting cocked by a 7 inch Otacon. Seriously. They always seem to be wet and ready for sex even when no one is around. They fuck everywhere and anywhere in their series. And if a woman is that wet all the time, it tends to actually physically feel good. And they never seem to outright state a hatred for males. Just that one of them has a hatred for cheating at times to the point she’ll kill her lover and then herself. So this game is hardly known for quality. More so mediocrity.
3: Nanomachines, Son.
Secondly, please stop trying to pedestal Yuri. I get it. You lonely blue pillers are so blue pilled up that you, as the male demographic of these games, think a lack of males is some kind of saving grace. I get that you think that misandry is a good thing. That you think that male’s are inherently muhsogynistic. That you think that no pure woman would want a penis. That you think that girls and only girls are a good thing and better than diversity (The actual spice of life). That you think that if you want to gain the affections of a woman, then it can only be from either becoming a girl, or being so effeminate that you might as well be gay.
But to compare this to Metal Gear is like trying to compare American Psycho to The Room by Tommy Wiseau. Both have a sort of cult following (While in Metal Gear’s case bigger than a cult). But only one has that following and is actually any good based on written quality and intellectual prowess on the writers part.
Got it? Only White Knights and beta male mangina’s like this series past wanting to fuck all the chicks themselves. Because you can’t like a quality that doesn’t exist.
That’s what I would have said if the character limit on Steam comments wasn’t 1,000 characters or less. But man. How fucking full of the Yuri fever do you have to be to think that Yuri has ever been comparable to a long running series of the quality of Metal Gear? Not only does Metal Gear update on a time schedule that allows for proper time to make a great story, it uses resources well.
And Yuri fans from what I see are mostly weeaboo meme shitting freaks anways.
Yuri is more like that one neurotic mom who’s every now and then tolerable. And other times she seems like she’s trying to be tolerable, but only being a chaotic mess of contradictory to one another attempts at being tolerable.
Yuri hasn’t had the best track record. Either slice of life pizza slices that give Weeaboo’s diabete’s and take no intellectual capability to make past knowing some inside jokes and having a decent artist that can entice weeaboo lolicons, or it’s an attempt at an intellectual story that only goes full potato with it’s overly cringe worthy character motivations, plot twists, and character interactions.
Take Kannazuki No Miko for example. Awesome mecha but tossed into a horrible overly greasy mess of a story. It was so balls deep in shit that the Youtube channel Anime Balls Deep would have a fucking field day with that.
The blue haired main girl, Chikane, is like a paragon for Feminazi’s on “strong independent womyn” and yet she lives off of her families money, is some Mary Sue who’s loved by all and yet has some shitty woobie story thrown in, and she’s good at so many things, but can’t for the life of her be any good at knowing how to not be a man hating shit. If Souma wasn’t a man, she’d probably have no problems letting Himeko get saved by her. Since she represents a fanbase that thinks that “if you spend so much time around a real man you’re bound to wanna fuck em” or some shit. They can’t fathom the idea that a lesbian isn’t some purest form of love that can stand the test of time, but think that if you put a man in a main role that doesn’t lead to him getting shafted in terms of how he ends up then it’ll make the series go full harem or some shit.
Himeko is some indecisive emotion and morality sue who can’t decide to do shit, can’t seem to do shit on her own, like when Murakumo just decides to shit itself out to do the job it’s supposed to do, and she can’t seem to just nut up and tell Souma that “sorry. You’re princess is in another series where you’re appreciated and the story is better and we abducted you just to shit all over you”.
Souma is like that one guy who’s a mix of an alpha male and White Knight beta who does good things and is only a beta because he’s being spoonfed shitty ideologies, but will eventually just stop giving a shit about romance and tell the world to fuck itself. Like going #MGTOW or something.
Kannazuki No Miko is like that one Yuri that tries to be super edgy but fails at being really edgy and just goes full cringe edge on you. The girls are hot enough to want to fuck, but the story is so cringe worthy that you can’t see any other reason to watch it othet than to say “Damn I wish I could have sex with Chikane and Himeko” or to say “I wish I could pilot a mecha like Souma and ride a bike like him”.
And the sad thing is that no matter what someone tells you, Yuri is far from being that “underrated genre that not enough people care about”.
From my experience it works like this.
Yuri Vs Yaoi: Mainstream wise Yuri has the most backing and audience. The doujin’s have the most Yaoi which involve not only fanfic level self made manga’s that are basically free advertising with the right credits, but also indie works that don’t go mainstream. Yuri has an easier time going mainstream. Especially subtext shows with little to no presence from males.
Yuri Vs Hetero: Hetero has the edge here. But not enough to where you can say people prefer it by a norm. Most anime fans I’ve seen watch it because it’s the biggest in terms of content. Not because of a preference. Especially in this day and age of PC bullshit. They watch it for the girls. Anyone telling you they watch it because it has enticing romance is probably lying on most occasions. Now I will say that the het stuff has had less cringe worthy stories. Just not very developed at times. But not as cringe worthy. But most fans watch it to fap to the girls and ship them with other girls. Only the vanilla fags of the doujin communities ship the MC like hotcakes. Most forum goers and most people I’ve met say they prefer Yuri since they think it means you’re a faggot to like to see hetero sex. Even if it’s for logical reasons like “envy” and a desire to be the man in the sheets with the girl.
This is pretty much why Yuri has such a horrible track record to me. Because it lacks any intellectually knowledgeable writers, and it has at times, the cringe factor of your average fanfic.
Now for all the anally injured PC Yuritards who think that by not worshiping the vagoo of the great and mighty poo that is Yuri, then here. I have a gift for you.
