Nihon Review's Kevo writes: "The title “Yuru Yuri” roughly translates as “easygoing yuri”, “yuri” implying the genre of romance between girls. The title is very much perfect – the show is relaxed and paced smoothly for a comedy. YuruYuri♪♪ hardly deadpan or slow, but it is also not frenzied. The focus of YuruYuri♪♪ is in the relationships between its characters. These relationships distill down into “pairings” that lend structure to the show. The formula is simple enough, and the show executes it perfectly; the result is a wildly amusing anime that is charming, light, and worth a try for all comedy fans."
