So anyone knows what the chapter the anime ended on in the manga? Would love to pick the manga up just in case if we don't get a second season.

According to baka: "Ends at Vol 4, Chap 28".
The US-release has double volumes, keep that in mind.

On a side note, how come there's rarely any yuri fans being represented in these mixed-gendered nerdy shows? It's always the fujoshi/BL fan, the video game geek, your moe fan, and so on. Is it because the yuri subgenre hasn't matured enough to a point preconceived notions of an everyday yuri fan hasn't been established?

Yuri might still be in a weird transitional phase where older anime fans (who aren't themselves yuri fans) still identify it most strongly with flowery shoujo stuff like Dear Brother and Maria Watches Over Us, whereas younger anime fans (who, again, aren't themselves yuri fans) wouldn't have really encountered much yuri other than the Manga Time Kirara variety.

That last episode was so much fun. I was laughing so hard at the last "Fighto!" part xD

Also, the TV episodes are rearranged in order from the manga a bit, and a few stories are skipped. There's some material (not much) from the first double volume not in the show.

Kabakura does enjoy some yuri. I think that it's perfectly understandable for people to be a bit weirded out by the idea of BL aimed at girls or yuri/lesbian porn aimed at guys. It's easy to come off as exploitation, for exactly the same sorts of reasons that any kind of fetish porn can come off as exploitative. In the past in Japan, it was not exactly uncommon to find fujoshi who loved BL but were homophobic in real life. (Compare to how people obsessed with Asian or interracial porn may not be the least racist people in real life either.)
