7. Crime Scene (Yuru Yuri)
One of the most bizarre moments in Anime was the crime scene in Yuru Yuri. As dangerous and scary the scene looks , it is quite the opposite.

She was less prepared for high school than she felt herself to be. She became so awkward among her peers that she couldn’t even communicate with her teachers.

Sunako was rejected by her crush simple because she was ugly. This incident had traumatized her, which led to growing concerns by her aunty. She asked four boys, who lived in her mansions as tenants to transform Sunako to a “lady”, failing which they would have to face the consequences. Though these boys did their best, they could not change Sunako’s nature. She could temporarily be “ladylike”, but that wasn’t her usual self.
