The review bit
Lonely Yuri ( Kodoku ni Kiku Yuri the original japanese name) is a lovely little sweet story, and I do mean short taking easily under 2 hours to finish. While the story is fairly simple, it’s got a sort of charm to it. A simplicity with no real waste.
There’s hardly even much music or even sounds used, it’s complete silence in alot of places within the story and while that would normally bug me, it just doesn’t in this case. When there is music it’s the same pleasant tune, the only sounds really used are the sound of rain and splashing .
(Super thin limbs, but pretty none the less)
Aesthetically the art’s also quite simple, Though I was surprised at the amount of CG’s in the game, Not to mention the quality, I really think some of them are so sweet and pretty. For backgrounds as you’d expect from a short work it’s Photographic stuff; so not much to say there.
When I first started I didn’t expect much of anything from this, I was expecting to go meh at the end but What Lonely Yuri really did do, was make me read it all in one go, it hooked me start to finish. The pure romance fading later into bittersweet then going sweet as they come to terms with their love for each other, a formula that rarely fails for me. The interaction between Fusa and Seri was well written and gripping, I was routing for these characters. They were soo damn cute together. While it’s unlikely that it’ll stick in your head for years to come lonely Yuri will make you feel good inside for atleast alittle while.
With all taken into consideration, it’s worth some of everyones time, Anyone who reads this should go enjoy it, it’s soo short and actually good that it should be a crime not to.
(lesbians are great)
