After watching the absolute train wreck that is Shukufuku no Campanella, I was in such a terrible rage mode that it might have affected my viewing experience negatively. Will these two anime suffer the same fate as that horrendous show (still in a pretty rage mode).
Note: Not doing summary for these two series. It’s quite hard to do it anyway.
This series reminds me of that loli show I watch. No, it is not Kodomo no Jikan, but instead it is more like Ichigo Mashimaro. Except it is crazier and totally outrageous. This episode had three scenes, the first being this take-the-chair-game, the second is on pairing the straight teacher up with the hot health instructor by punching his balls to oblivion (I am not making this up) and the last scene is about a hamster called “Boobs”. All this is also done in a pretty innocent, rather than sexual manner. I find myself chuckling to nuts with all the hilarity happening in the show.
This is a very good first episode in my opinion. It pulls off all the weird stuff and the scenarios are decently realistic (until it goes into the deep end of weirdness, anyway). For a show that felt completely like fanservice galore for the lolicons during the preview entry, it turns out pretty fine in my opinion. The animation is also pretty good surprisingly, and I find myself appreciating the good sound effects and animation quality churned out by Bridge, a totally new animation company. I will be glad if they manage to keep this production level up.
What really shines through for this series are the weird sisters in crime. You have the straightforward but slightly lecherous Futaba, Sadako Hitoha and what I like to call the Mikan of Mitsudomoe, Mitsuba. Honestly, these three playful girls are so much of a handful and their queerness is so weird that it is pretty funny actually. I know that some of the fanservice jokes can get very old very fast, but it manages to hit the right spots. I do agree that there is a scene about the three sisters trying to comfort the male teacher (he is assumed to be a virgin) by kicking him in the balls, impressing the female teacher with his huge dick and then they can have sex. Once again, I swear I ain’t making this thing up.
All in all, it ended up in a situation where the bespectacled health instructor teacher and the boring male teacher combined to make a small dick joke. That was actually quite lame. However, the jokes in the scene hit well sometimes. It can be hit and miss though, particularly to those who hate such fanservice jokes. I will say you should try and at least watch one episode to see if you like it. If you don’t, you probably wouldn’t because it will be more of the same (based on the source material).
Recommendation: 7/10 (Has some good laughs, hilarious three sisters, the other characters are bland)
I was thinking whether this series is a 4koma. It turns out that it is, and man, it is hilarious. I don’t deny that the start of the episode is a total bore, and I was starting to complain to Hana (because the chief complainer, my wife, went to sleep) how this show stinks in the first five minutes. Yes, you might see some similarities to a very recent post, but I generally waste 20 minutes of my time to make sure I didn’t make any bad judgment, even for a show I will rage and even if I force myself not to pay attention.
This is how I reacted at the start of the first few minutes.
Impz: ok this show is not for me…
Impz: but it’s still watchable
Impz: until that crap campella
Impz: (has high levels of tolerance for crap)
This is how I reacted at the end of the episode.
Impz: MAKES NO FRICKING SENSE BUT IT’S FUNNY LOL
Impz: I definitely did not expect something so random
Impz: I thought it’s some silly rom com
I think that this is the kind of show that runs very thin by the end of the fifth or sixth episode. There are obscene numbers of sexual jokes, which can grate on people. In fact, some of them are so random. I quote you once again from my YIM conversation with Hana. I apologize for the butchering of the English language from my text conversations on Instant messaging.
Impz: like for this scene, the president of the student council deduces that the owner of a lost pink wallet must be a female.
Impz: she didn’t deduce it by the color, she deduced because there’s no condom
Impz: …so stupid
Impz: OH GOD…..HAHAHAHA
Impz: and they have an interview with the journalistic club
Impz: and guess what they use for reference?
Impz: an AV gravure idol video
Impz: cos they always have interviews before the sex
Recommendation: 6/10 (Slow start, some rather unfunny jokes but essentially quirky and silly).
