Anima Yell! Episode 10: Gay Chair Training

I’m just gonna say it. This was the best episode by far. Plus it helped heal the pain that was Saturday, December 8th. That was a rough day.

We began the episode with President Kohane excited to finally call their group the Chair Club around school when they got another request from the Manga Club.

OH MY GOD! They did the “Rabbit Season” joke! I love this show!

We knew this day would come sooner or later. Uki finally found her kindred spirit.

So our heroines arrived at the manga club room and were greeted by the usual “no days off”, “no sleep required” hardcore mangaka. There were many highlights in this segment but let’s mention the ones most relevant to our needs. The club leader asked Kohane and Uki to hold hands like they were a couple. Kohane did it in less than a second. Uki’s reaction?

Next up was Arima asked to hug Ushiku from behind.

Ushiku’s reaction was undeniably excellent but what sold it was Arima’s usual godlike droopy expression.

Where have I seen this before?

Kanna praising Riko

Ah yes.

Arima was on fire this episode

It’s 2018 and the Super Saiyan joke still makes me laugh.

The second half was what many of us were super excited for coming into this episode. Sadly we’d have to wait a bit before the blessings.

See. After helping the Manga Club Uki was shocked by how much they enjoyed drawing despite being physically exhausted. Kohane though envied their drive and passion. She wanted to go Super Chair essentially. That’s when Arima brought up an upcoming Chairleader Tournament to prepare for, thus her organizing a training camp at her dad’s friend’s dojo. Sadly we still had to wait a bit longer for the blessings.

While the training was important Arima had one very important main objective, to strengthen her bond with Ushiku. Considering how madly in love with her Ushiku was to the point of being dubbed a “useless lesbian” it was easier said than done. But it sure as Flubber was wonderful to watch.

Being madly in love is suffering.

And now. At long last, what we’d been waiting for.

Unfortunately these pics are the best ones featuring Uki and Arima’s swimsuits. Still sexy though.


We end the episode with Ushiku agreeing to do her very best to control her libido around Arima. Ushiku FIGHTO!

Like I said. Best episode by far.

    This show is in a legendary yuri showdown match with Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san ^^

    I just love, love, love Kana. And all the others too. It’s heartwarming to see Hizume and Kana get closer. And the posing for the manga club. Shame they didn’t need a kiss scene. Kana just melted in Hizume’s arms. I hope she gets to be back there soon, it’s her place. Those tears don’t lie, she wants to be with her.

    I think I fell in love with Kana too when she messed up her own name in the beginning. And then calmly said Uki is behaving like Kohane’s lover.

    Little Kotetsu is sweet as ever. I like it when girls help each other to get their dream girls, cheering for each other.

    And those are some super adorable, sexy swimsuits.

    I love it. This needs more seasons ^^

      Vampires are solidly in the lead thanks to Sayaka and Yuu, unless Kon’s girlfriend actually shows up.

      Ushiku is madly in love with Arima. It’s beautiful.

      She’s Uki’s kindred spirit. They’ll fight to win their respective beloved’s hearts together.

      Kotetsu is the cute one as I have said in her debut.

      Ushiku’s and Uki’s were the best as expected.

      Definitely need more gay chairleader goodness.

    An episode dedicated to the girls getting gayer with each other is always appreciated, with bonus swimsuits. I actually didn’t expect Hizume to chase after Kana when Kana was introduced, with the cheering of the other girls, they got together.

    “Sensei knows how to adult”.

    I fell over laughing when I saw that the first time, but I have to wonder how literal of a translation it was. I have no doubt that in terms of getting across meaning, it’s perfect.

    Kana, I feel your (and Yohane’s) pain.

    Kana with some great support for Uki’s obvious crush.

    Our chairleaders got to support some cute nerdy girls.

    Hakane’s too low? Chairleaders to the rescue!

    “It’s a serious training camp.” You can still wear swimsuits! A few games and girl talk after training won’t hurt.

    After this episode, I’m firmly on board with Hizume/Kana. Maybe we can get some Kotetsu/Ghost of the Music Room scenes too.

    “Sensei knows how to adult. She just doesn’t like doing it.”

      It was wonderful.

      You mean Kohane, right?

      Thankfully we weren’t denied blessings.

      You really are enamored with that ghost.

        Where did I get Hakane? Forgive me, great Yohane, for I have sinned!

        She’s the best ghost I’ve seen all year. Although she’s still not as awesome as Saki is.

    My god!… el nivel de lesbianismo de Kana supera los 9000…

    Esa Arima es mi personaje favorito, si supiera de su poder para atraer otras damas convertiría a su grupo en su jardín de lirios personal… peeeeeeero ella es muy despistada por lo que no va a pasar.
    Lo mejor fue Kana imaginando a su adorada senpai en “modo Heidi”, my God, se puede decir que Arima es la diosa personal de Kana.

      Asi es.

      Me gusta sus expresiones y como su cara me recuerda del perro Droopy. Me da mucha risa. Si, ella tiene poderes de harem yuri pero no lo sabe.

      Ushiku ama muchisimo a Arima, sin duda.

    This may not have been exactly what I originally envisioned as a beach episode… but the lesbian in this episode was so strong I literally don’t even care. Based on the overwhelming evidence, it would seem that HizumexKana is now canon as well, leaving our dear Kotetsu to become the daughter of Uki and Kohane. Congratulations to all the newly-weds! 😀

      We did get some nice bikini chairleader goodness. Just not enough. Hopefully next episode will give us more.

      As you said the large dose of gayness more than made up for the too brief swimsuit blessing. Kohane and Uki adopting Kotetsu sounds great to me.
      Oh yes. Ushiku and Arima are set for life.

    Yesssssssss this ep!!!!

    Granted it didn’t exactly play out as the beach ep I pictured, it made up for that by all the glorious Kana goodness. Ahh I love this girls so much!!!! I used to be Team Uki, but Kana has totally won my heart over it seems. Still cheering for Uki though, she got some quality hand holding time in, which is a step in the right direction. Hope she can finally get through to Kohane’s heart one of these days.

    But Kana though!!! She was soooooo good this ep! She’s too cute when she’s blushing and embarrassed, my heart can only take so much! I loved that moment with her and Uki too, Uki realizing she has a kindred spirit indeed.

    Inukai didn’t have a huge role this week, but her moments were great.

    Really liked how Kohane and Kotetsu are supportive of Kana and her quest to be with Hizume. Great to see the girls looking out for each other like that. True friends right there.

    Hoping next week we get to see this performance they’ll be putting on. Part of my wishes it’ll be them dancing in swimsuits. Doubt that’ll happen, but one can dream.

    Excellent ep this week, and yes it totally makes up for all the blood, death, rape, and betrayal in Saturday’s eps. I wasn’t ready for that at all. Bloom into You was a big help too.

    Hyped as always for the next ep!

      As I told tsubasasfamily we got a small dose of swimsuit blessing and we can hope to get more next episode.

      Yup. The large dose of gayness more than made up for it. Uki FIGHTO! You’re doing great lass. Keep on loving Kohane and eventually you’ll get the courage to properly explain your feelings for her.

      Ushiku undeniably stole the show this week. Her best reaction was on the floor when she was about to explode from uncontrollable bliss after Arima explained herself.

      Uki and Ushiku got each other’s back.

      Nice seeing Kohane and Kotetsu cheering her on.

      Fingers crossed we’ll get that kind of performance.

      Much needed stress relief.

  8. Cute gay cheerleaders are indeed a great cure for tragic-episode-cliffhanger-based sadness.

    It’s obvious that Hizume will eventually find a problem with Kana acting so funny. It’s obvious that she wants to get closer to her, but Kana becomes to flustered that she runs away. At least she made progress after Kohane and Kotetsu give her a push.

    Either way, the level of yuri hits a new level in this episode.
