Topic: What is your view on the legendary "True Happiness" by Kiriraitaa?

Posted under General

Cute Aggression

How much impact did it cause on the yukkuri fanon?

How was it perceived here and in other sites?

How successful was it?

And also, how do you compare it to other famous yukkuri stories?

My opinion:
- Dunno.
- Dunno.
- It introduced me to yukkuriverse and woke up my sadism.
- The yukkuri in this story were perfectly naive and less-anger inducing, because they can "trust" you and seemingly don't throw bad language at you.

    1. How much impact did it cause on the yukkuri fanon?

    If the stories by other posters are to be believed, this story was the origin of the poo poo dance.

    2. How was it perceived here and in other sites?

    Because it was drawn fairly well, it was held in high regard in so far as that concern. It was well liked by abyuse fans and hated by family friendly fans.

    3. How successful was it?

    I am not too sure about it but this story was likely kiriraitaa's swan song before he slowly lost interest in creating more yukkuri work.

    4. And also, how do you compare it to other famous yukkuri stories?

    This is held pretty highly by abuse fans in the past and the new fans seem to be of the same opinion that it is pretty good as well. There is no way of knowing though if the new ones are just saying this because they actually believe it themselves or if they wish to propagate the idea that the work is pretty good in a similar way to how some people like to spread memes or they wish to self-identify with majority of the community which is abyuse fans.

    The earlier stories are probably more influential and more creative than true happiness (like that chinese guy's work who I think goes by the name of DOS) but the pacing and the good art style is probably going to be the reasons why people will probably continue to consider the story as quite decent (psychotic anons not withstanding)

    The most impactful thing about True Happiness is that it goes from family friendly to abyuse in, like, two pages or even less.
    That's not something recent works do, either because the abyuse is foreshadowed from the very beginning, or because they never try to be family friendly at all.
    That said, I personally like House Yu more amongst kiriraitaa's works.
    As Canttakeiteasy said, earlier works are actually more influential when it comes to introducing new characteristics: pool #294 essentially created the Shell Marisa type (though it might've been created earlier, I'm not sure. But this is the first proper comic featuring it, rather than just a set of illustrations), pool #275 introduced the Deibu type before z-aki created its famous scum yukkuri, and I could go on but I don't really want to.
    However, True Happiness still has good drawings and a decent pace, so it's still a quality work, I'd say.

    Its one of my favorite story and artist so far.
    I dont remember specifically how I found yukkuri. I only remember I found it by accident and instantly got caught in anger inducing (The image was about a genetic modified crying reimus for sale and a guy bash the glass to make them cry more). I dont remember well what was my first story after that, but I'm sure True Happiness was my first favorite story. Loved it, a lot. The best part for me is when the guy fool the remaining yu and put Urushi leaf as a diaper in the ko. That was priceless.
    2 things I learned to like after that story: Kill the kos in front of the family and fooling/trolling them to get abused even more.
    About the impact, recognition and success of this story I don't know. This is the only Yu community I'm in.
    I'm not much in comparing stories. Each story is unique for me. Of course there are some I like more, but for me is not fair compare. But if someone ask me about a story that a family get abused, I'd indicate True Happiness without thinking.

    I'll take Canttakeiteasy's answers for #1, #2 and #3.

    As for #4, abyuse isn't my cup of tea. I prefer "Yukkuri vs. Nature" and slice of life stories -- something along the lines of "Dosu in the City" and "The Wolf and the Seven Yukkuri." I find those stories more interesting and insightful than just smashing the shit out of some sentient pastries.

    Single mother reimu was older, I think.

    Edit:

    I checked and Single mother was the origin of the deibu characteristics.

    Thanks for checking.

    #1. This story appeared to really push the idea of starting out with a cute happy story that quickly turns into a slow-moving abyuse train. And poo-poo dance.
    #2. Canttakeiteasy's answer.
    #3. Was clearly the opus. Nothing kiriraitaa made after that point seemed to have as much attention than that one did. You could tell they really enjoyed that twist, and just slow-killing the family, then the ending.
    #4. This story's pretty much the one everyone compares every abyuse story to. Heck, even the term, "happy ending," is almost a pun on it at this point.

    I didn't really like it, personally, because I'm not a sadist, and the family was actually pretty cute. The whole idea of, 'reducing the family's happiness to a number' thing is just a call to the real world, and how easy it can be to ruin someone's entire livelyhood.

    I found yukkuri from Yukkuri and Yuyuko http://yukkuri.shii.org/pools/177
