Tatsuya Yuki C81 Yuru Yuri themed doujin ‘Trashbox 23’

February 8, 2012

Apparently a fan of the yuri themed school comedy “Yuri Yuri”, of which a sequel anime season was announced late December, artist Tatsuya Yuki (Pixiv) of circle Studio S.D.T. released a doujin centered around this hilarious show.

Published at C81, the book titled “Trashbox 23” not only includes images that recreate some iconic scenes from the first season of “Yuru Yuri”, but struck me with its illustrations full of color that feature excellent play of light and shadow tones.


While its page count may be rather low, it largely makes up for that by offering a collection of gorgeous “Yuru Yuri” art works. Just seeing the colors used to render that clouded sky and shadows cast, quite an enchanting scene.


In essence but a simple illustration of two girls holding hands, the composition and superb rendering of light, shadow, the subdued yet still lively colors give this particular image a definite impact.

Also gives us plenty to speculate who the two girls could be. Ayano and Kyouko perhaps?


Like how the artist rendered this scene of the four girls going out together. Ayana looks adorable being so flustered at Kyouko’s nonchalant behavior, their friends Yui and Chitose looking on.

Though seems Chitose let her imagination run wild judging by the tissue to stop her nosebleed.


Adore this illustration of Himawari & Sakurako. Hope to see more of these two in the sequel season because even though they were the first girls hinted at possibly becoming a couple, nothing much was done to develop their relationship as the season progressed.

You can always see more art on Tatsuya Yuki’s homepage and on Pixiv.

    OMG, I love the artworks in this. Yuru Yuri may not have been a great anime, the yuri in there is too adorable not to love. Definitely go check out some of his art on pixiv now.

    Agreed, most of this art hits the mark that Yuru Yuri failed to hit with its anime adaptation, just not the right tone for great yuri or slice-of-life anime. It was a fun show which I hope will evolve well in its sequel season, but it has a ways to go!
