Now, allow me to explain Meganebu! in a mildly-large nutshell: an under-budgeted club with an intense adoration for glasses try to complete their project of making X-Ray Glasses, all the while intensifying the love for glasses and getting the unfair School Council to boost their budget in order to make their project a success. Sounds short and simple, right?

*BZZZT* Wrong!

Meganebu! is a bit more than that. This twelve-episode joyride of an anime fuses five boys' love for glasses with a great amount of comedy, shenanigans, conflicts, X-Ray Glasses failures (Usually ending with explosions) and overall hilarity. I'm gonna go more in-depth here, so sit read more

NO MEGANE, NO LIFE. Sounds cheesy, but in this anime, it's awesome, so a very good anime has just ended, though the megane theme was very corny, I have to hand to Studio Deen for going around such cornyness. This was probably one of the most unique anime I've ever watched, ok time to present my ratings for each of this anime's category.

Good 7.

Story- Basically it has very simple theme, that has been exaggerated, however it's comedy genre without the sexual innuendo was very good.

Fair 6.

Art- I wish the guys would have wore their school's uniform, beside it kinda looks good on them, instead wearing read more

Overall: 9

Story: 7
It's a very simple story, and amazing all the more because of it.
But, being a simple story, it is difficult to keep it interesting. There were a few boring moments...
Yet, it's been a very heart-warming, funny anime to watch.
I hope we'll get a second season, with events that get deeper into the troubles and personalities of the characters, because that is what I felt was missing the most. But with a little of that sense of lightness that permeates this first season.
It touches everything, but remains superficial. It's this anime's virtue, but also its vice...

Art: 10
I simply loved it. Anatomy, colours, places...

Hey guys !
So I've to take a look at the upcoming animes at ANN, and I've found Meganebu. I read the summary and I wasn't really fond at the beginning, I had read the comments too before starting watching it and they were almost all negatives.
I was really thinkink about it, and after a long thinking I decided to go watch the first episode. Really, I never imagined a story like this one. It's just hilarious and ridiculous at the same time, but it's really awesome, at least for now.
As I'm a lover of OST's,I wasn't deceived at all, the OST is just perfect. read more

Anime: Ouran Koukou Host Club
Meganebu is like Ouran, minus the plot, but 10 times the absurdity.

Anime: Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE!
Both are colorful, quirky shows involving high school boys in crazy situations. Meganebu! is slighty more based in reality than the magical premise of Binan Koukou, but both series feature similar archetypes.

Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Both anime are about a group of immature boys hanging out, with lots of hilarious boyish jokes.

Anime: Seitokai Yakuindomo

Both have the same comedy and school genre.

Both involves a bunch of High-school students.

Both have the same anime arrangements where an episode would be compose of a couple of Omakes.


One is set in an all boy's school, while the other is set in an all girl's school turn coed.

The comedy theme in one anime was more on the sexual innuendo while the comedy theme is based on slapstick's and a yaoi element.

One anime has an extra harem and romance genre, while the other one has yaoi as it's extra genre.

Anime: MM!
Both story developing in a highschool's club that apparently established to accommodate students with certain fetishes. The everyday students (especially the clubs member) life which filled with unimaginable yet hilarious scenes
