Re: Tactical Roar
- I know this series is "old news", but Yorishiku is only now finishing
the subbing, and with the bleak prospects for the new anime season
this short series might help lift the spirits for a moment.
Yes, Clio-oneesama is THE yuri character here, and apparently she was
(and still is in the first episodes) involved with said pilot.
Clio and the captain get kissed by a girl in episode 5 and 6 and the
captain wonders why she liked it so much to be kissed by a girl. :)
There's also some, dare I mention it, pretty explicit evil!lesbian
twincest in episodes 5 and 6. So apparently, 5 and 6 are the yuri
climax of this series.
The "supposed hilarity" is really just that, and I don't want, by any
means, defend fanservice, but in this series it's not so much
voyeuristic but rather blunt, with a cheerful wink, and it shouldn't
keep anybody from watching, because this series also has a *gasp*
somewhat coherent and plausible *plot*, somewhat authentic characters
and... ^^ girls in uniform.

- Its strange...
The art is rather interesting, kind of avante-garde. The art style
reminded me of Paradise Kiss, thats what I was trying to think of while
watching it. I dont know why they drew everyones lips so large. lol And
who the heck bursts into song after they learn their friend got
murdered/commited suicide? Still, the anime seems like its just in time
for Halloween. ^_^ Im not sure why, but I kept expecting everyone to go
to a Buddist shrine set up for the girl, like you see in other animes. hehe
- I'm just happy that I was able to find a group that put out a fansub that I
could play. For several weeks the only copy out would break up ever 15 seconds
and the subtitles were very distracting (playing on VLC). (That copy also kept
a "Yuri" counter, as if anyone could possibly miss the subtext.)
I do have some high hopes for this series, as a high fashion NYC based
