Here is something I should have talked about as soon as I stumbled upon this lovely Youtube page. A web series that explores the many types of yuri relationships presented over the years hosted by a duo who also have their own developing love story. This is Yurigami-Sama ga Miteru/Yurigami is Watching Us, produced by Lilyque.
Note: Episodes are in Japanese. Make sure English subs are turned on in case they are not already.
Yurigami-Sama ga Miteru is a voice comic/manga video series about the titular Yurigami, yuri goddess and her angel assistant Angel/Tenshi overseeing lesbian relationships on Earth, get energized by glorious gayness, blessing the girls/women as Angel thoroughly explained the yuri relationship tropes and archetypes featured in each episode. Afterward the goddess and angel’s own relationship slowly progressed based on the theme of the episode.
Yurigami is mostly laid back and often not motivated to do her job requiring the ever attentive Angel to get her to work by alerting her of gayness in progress on Earth. On rare occasion the goddess herself senses yuri. Before or after the episode (sometimes both) Angel subtly or openly shows her love for the goddess but of course Yurigami is (presumably) oblivious to her desire to marry, thus following their own yuri couple archetype and tropes.
The stars of Episode 1.
Many kinds of yuri relationship tropes and character archetypes are explored from tsundere girls in love but afraid to confess, height gap, college students, adult women, softcore food porn etc. It is all fluffy with a small dose of yum. However, do keep in mind that the show covers as many as possible. Viewers will understand what I mean when they get to a certain few episodes.
As mentioned the show is presented in a video comic format, meaning still images with text appearing in speech bubbles as the seiyu (most likely two) voice the goddess, angel and couples every episode. As the show progresses so does the animation improve. Keep in mind while watching this is a low budget show. Still very nicely drawn ladies young and old.
Very fun series worth watching for all interested yuri fans. Personal favorites so far are the “Tea Time” and “Big Maiden” episodes.
Note that as of the date of this Quickie the series is ongoing. The more support it gets, the longer it will go till its eventual conclusion.
New episodes premiere Saturday evenings depending on where in the world viewers are watching.
