Oldie But Goodie. #ChildhoodMemories

As I was getting bored, tried thinking of something to watch over YouTube. Suddenly, this Japanese animated series came to my mind. I remember this as being aired on one of our local TV channels. As far as I remember it was during elementary days or probably High School days.

It is really fun and enjoy watching one of your favorite childhood animated series. I prefer this kind of genre when it comes to Japanese. I know this one has a bit fantasy in it since we all know teleporting is mere impossible. But I like that it has comedy and romance involved in the characters. Good thing it has English Subtitle on each episodes. I think it is better learning Japanese language and not relying on subtitles since it is painstaking finding it in Youtube. 🙂

Please feel free to share any other animated series that I can watch.

Compared to Youtube, this one has each episode all in one unlike the ones in YT wherein each ep. is split into two.

I came across this old Japanese animated series via the site : en.animesoul.tv

Yuri (百合 ?, “lily”), also known by the wasei-eigo construction Girls’ Love (ガールズラブ, gāruzu rabu ?), is a Japanese jargon term for content and a genre involving love between women in manga, anime, and related Japanese media.
   I really like the story of this one. At first, it would be a bit confusing in terms of some of the characters sexuality. That is why the series why is under the genre Yuri.What makes it unique somehow is it uses symbols and poetic passages on each episode.It has a bit of comedy but mostly drama, romance/love and tragedy.
