Let’s get this party started with the beginning. This premiere/prototype episode also includes the funniest girl in the series imo.
This couple is one of the most basic you’ll ever find. It’s so simple that there’s only one twist within their relationship, which I’ll get to later. Basically a kouhai, Nanami (the rose-haired one) is a student who wanted to transfer to this supposedly elite Catholic school for girls. Seriously, what is it with most yuri stories taking place in all-girl Catholic schools? Why can’t one take place in a Jewish or Muslim all-girl academy? It wouldn’t make sense but DAMN would it boggle people’s minds. Anyway, she gets in and immediately falls in love with a senior, Yuuna, without waiting ten seconds to crave White Chocolate. Through an inconveniently amusing circumstance, Nanami confesses her feelings to the senior who has dreamed of eating her Cranberry Salad for months. From there it’s a charming and adorable love story of a girl who wants to keep their relationship a secret to avoid trouble, all while trying to comprehend her deceptively savage lover’s insatiable thirst for cranberry juice.
There’s are several reasons why I hold Yuuna Matsubara with high regards. Besides her uncanny ability to make me laugh (Especially after her voice becomes fluffier in the later episodes), it’s her absolute power over the 1st and 2nd grade girls. I strongly believe that it’s because of her, the upcoming two couples came together as one. Either that or she gave them the necessary push to take their relationship more seriously. She isn’t exactly an airhead, she just doesn’t notice nor care about her omnipotence over many girls near her. I salute this secretly wild lady from Acapulco.
Next is Nanami, aka the dormant wolverine. Remember when I said this premiere episode’s plot, while classic in terms of yuri, had a twist? Well it’s the fact Nanami’s just as much of a wild animal as her onee-sama. It’s just she wants to keep it a secret from others for obvious reasons…but is terrible at hiding her craving for Belgian Churros.
As you’d expect, the beast within is eventually unleashed after finally understanding her lover’s “expressive” nature. There isn’t much I can say about the art of their lovemaking…that is until Yuuna’s secret craving is revealed. She’s currently the hungriest lover with only one other girl in second.
In conclusion: Not much else to say about this premiere episode. It set up what would later become a now legendary series that if you’re old enough to play, can enjoy to your heart’s content. Yuuna and Nanami may not be the fan favorite couple but they still deserve respect for being pioneers.
