One of my closest confidants in the yuri council, Arca J (Miss AJ) developed a vision beyond what Yuri Goggles could offer. She called this advanced form of mental observation “The Yuri Zone”. It is thanks to the Yuri Zone that she noticed something quite interesting in “Saki: Zenkoku-hen”. That is the power of one Shiromi Kosegawa: “The Power of the Sloth”.
The Yuri Zone helped Miss AJ come to the following conclusion and I quote: “Shiro is (probably accidentally) building her own harem. All the girls seem to love her and follow her lead. Even two random classmates wanted more time with Shiro’s “bedroom eyes.”
See, Shiro, or as I like to call her “The Drowzy Outcast” is usually portrayed as being very lazy and uncaring about most things around her. Other than in the ring or with her friends/harem girls, Shiro rarely shows any interest in the outside world. HOWEVER, based on the following observations it can be seen that Shiro became the (probably) unintentional manager, motivator and source of bliss for the team.
When “Merciless” Sae was exhausted from her match only one person came to offer to nurse her back to health. I strongly believe Shiro and Sae are an item but The Yuri Zone confirmed that she is but one of many who were smitten by the sexy sloth.
I still believe the main reason Aislinn, Sister Sketcher, joined The Toyone Family was because she was smitten with Sister Toyone but The Yuri Zone classifies buying bread as part of “The Yuri Pantheon” so Sketcher was also taken aback by the sloth’s “charms”.
In the end a reader may ask “What life lesson does this post teach?”. Teenage girls supposedly have a thing for bad boys or guys who look gloomy or broody or just some guy who looks like he needs a woman’s touch to get back on track. The life lesson here is, “Whatever men can do, women can do it too…and possibly be better at it.”
