Spring always brings new hopes and beginnings…

The first new Spring 2019 anime series that I tried is “Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO”, aka, “Yu No”. When I started to watch the episode I immediately felt that I had been time-shifted 20 years or so into the past because the episode felt like something from a ‘90s OAV. Afterwards I checked into the background of the series and it turns out that it is based upon a 1996 Visual Novel that was also turned into a four episode hentai OAV. I don’t specifically remember seeing the OAV, although I did start watching anime in the mid-90s, but the overall plot is fairly familiar.

In some sea-side Japanese town a randy teen with an attitude receives lots of female attention from his female classmates and his female teachers. But Randy Teen is also a moody teen who broods about his dead parents. In addition, Mysterious Things are happening in town including the delivery of a couple of mystery packages to the Teen from his supposedly dead father. The teen receives instructions to take an artifact to a forbidden place where he runs first into a mysterious naked girl with elf ears who kisses him and then vanishes, next into a male teacher who threatens the teen with a gun, and then into a dimensional warp that takes the teen to a parallel world where things are only slightly different.

This was not a stellar start by any means. The animation, voice acting and writing are all very iffy. But there is a sort of stupid energy that brings forth a faint hope that this might be enjoyable trash. So I’ll stick around for a while and see if it can entertain me at some base level.
