Three months ago I wrote a scathing review of Kunihiko Ikuhara's newest anime series Yurikuma Arashideclaring that he had lost his mind and that his work with showcasing strong stories dealing with those in the LGBT community had been stomped on viciously thanks to the series' disturbing fan-service and nonsensical plotline.

Yuri Kuma Arashi begins on a fairly busy note, introducing all of the key characters in a way that feels fresh and memorable, and giving appropriate emphasis to all of the most important characters and plot points right off the bat. After the first antagonist is defeated, however, and Kureha begins to develop a relationship with the bears Ginko and Lulu, the central narrative becomes much more distinct.
