Yui and Ui sisterly love

The cute Nakano Azusa made her first appearance in the “K-ON!” anime, she will no doubt be the focal point of the next episodes. A fierce battle against Akiyama Mio to become every otaku’s favorite “K-ON!” moe idol seems inevitable.

Facing the possibility of all that upcoming Azusa madness, I thought it was only proper to show some love to the Hirasawa sisters of whom we were treated to several heart warming and terrific scenes these past episodes.

Yui and Ui embrace

Adore this illustration by KL, not only well rendered in the anime series art style but it also perfectly captures the affection between Yui and Ui.

Even though the gimmick of having the older sister be the responsible and mature one, while the younger sister is an air-headed goof, is commonplace for most anime series, switching this role pattern around is less evident.

One could argue it’s done in “Minami-ke” with Chiaki and Kana, but let us not forget there’s three Minami sisters, with the oldest sister Haruka being portrayed as the perfect housewife type, much like Ui is in “K-ON!”.

Yui and Ui in Christmas suits

Lovely image by kuroba of Yui and Ui in the quite short skirted Santa outfit that Sawako had brought to the Christmas party. Short skirt, bare shoulders,… delicious!

We can only guess at what Tusumgi would say if she witnessed such a scene.

Ui brushing Yui her hair

Above image is based on one of the promotional illustrations published in a Japanese anime magazine.

From what we saw in this week’s episode, such a scene is likely to be a daily one for the Hirasawa sisters, with the level headed younger sister Ui caring for her distracted and easy going older sister Yui.

Ui and Ui in bed together

A more daring illustration by Mikan of the sisters getting quite up close and personal in bed.

Those of us inclined towards more yuri oriented interests will no doubt approve and wonder if such a scenario, akin to the one of Kanade and Yukino in “Candy☆Boy”, could have worked out for Yui and Ui.

Undoubtedly, doujinshi may come to our rescue here.

If you want to see more images of the irresistibly cute Yui and Ui, as well as their other friends Mio, Tsumugi, Ritsu and Azusa, surely e-shuushuu or moe.imouto can cater those needs.

    Kinda doubt you can pull Yui and Ui into yuri 😛 Shoujo ai at best 😛 And since you talked about Minami-ke, I hardly see a relation. The Y(Ui) relationship seems a bit too perfect (not that it’s a bad thing but sibling quarreling sometimes is standard procedure :P)

    The link with “Minami-ke” could be seen in the fact there’s a responsible younger sister (Chiaki/Ui) and an aloof older sister (Kana/Yui).
    Save that “Minami-ke” still has Haruka of course. ^^

    The more daring picture of sisterly love has just soiled my eyes. @_@
    They look cute but that is just too much for me. >_>

    Good good… I’m not the only one who sees the potential yuriness of Yui and Ui ^^
