Synopsis

The Fujisaki Girls Academy is known for their school body being composed of very proper students. The most prominent one of them is Maki, the student president who is admired by her classmates for her calm and polite demeanor. On the other hand, Kurahashi Riko is also admired but for having a very forward and boyish personality. Riko accidentally walks into Maki while she's practicing kissing with a pillow and learns that she isn't what everyone thinks she is. Riko is forced into keeping Maki's secret and join her in practicing all aspects of romance like holding hands and more.

This show is not yuri. I don't want to spend a lot of time on that fact, so I'll just throw it out there immediately and move on.

So, MAL review reader, if you're reading this line, you probably started your trek of this review by checking out the number I dropped in the "Overall Rating" section. Intrigued, perhaps you even clicked those words to bring up the breakdown of numbers I awarded the show for various aspects of its creation. You would then have noticed the number "10" in the story section and probably asked yourself, "What? A perfect 10 in story for a comedy? read more

So if you just read the synopsis for this anime it makes it seem like it has really generic characters and a predictable storyline. Which is a shame really because the show really does a good job utilizing its characters and story, turning it into something really enjoyable. (I realize only 4 episodes have aired so far and if the show does "somehow" do a complete 180 I'll rewrite the whole review but I think that would be highly unlikely)

Story (8/10)

The setting is an all girl's school Fujisaki Academy. Riko the main character is known throughout the school with her nickname "The Wild One". After read more

Recommendations

Both anime are about ridiculous middle school girls and their life. The characters are loveable and cute. Filled with hilarious dialogue and moe artwork. A little bit of shoujo ai in both animes.
In both series, it revolves a club with special activities. However, these activities usually are not so typical with school related ideas. Otherwise, Natsuo and Sena both have some similarities as being popular but also at times insecure and has a strange fascination in their minds. On the other hand, Yozora and Riko are considered tomboys and has a strange interaction with their club members.

There is many fun gags from both series and among other things...catchy dialogues, humor, and randomness. Both series also takes place at a school life setting.
