comedy romance school slice of life
Synopsis Amawa Hibiki is a young man just out of college, with an education to be an athletics teacher. He's been having a hard time finding a job since he graduated, so all his money has gone towards living expenses. When his landlady demands his first payment to live in her living establishment upfront, he heads to the local middle school to get hired as a teacher. However, the principal refuses to hire him without hesitation. She will not hire men as teachers and makes it clear that she hates all men, saying they put no love into their passions and work. Amawa does not give up and with the help of his landlady, he crossdresses as a woman without a second thought, and gets hired, so he can earn money and also prove the principal wrong. Now, he has to keep his real gender a secret, and avoid strange situations, including the affections of his students (from both genders).
Characters & Voice Actors
It puzzles me why no one had reviewed this yet. Which hyped me up even more to let people know about this anime.
You might be looking at the preview image right now thinking "Ahh... It doesn't look that appealing".
Well, to be honest, I'm not that fond of that drawing style, but don't let it discourage you! You'll get used to it, I promise.
Story and Enjoyment
If you're looking for a 'super developed' plot on how the world suddenly became and apple and how humans must find a way to turn it back, forget it.
This is a very lighthearted Anime, it won't confuse you with its scientific theories and plot twists that make you go "huh?".
It made me cheer up from "Ahh, why all my anime suddenly feel so boring?" to laughing by the end of the very first episode.
Now, don't get me wrong about the plot twists. They exist! They're quite good at holding the mystery for the right amount of time and unleashing it into a laugher bomb of amusement.
I don't think they exaggerated or forced on either comedy, drama or romance. To me it was well quite balanced.
And I liked the ending too, so yay!
Before watching, just ask yourself if you must you fall in love with every Opening and Ending Theme you see. I usually skip them unless I do, anyway. (And so I did, in I My Me! Strawberry-Eggs). I guess you can figure.
I know some people just skipped the whole review to read about the characters. But if you did, I'm sorry to disappoint you, I won't get into much detail for the fear or ruining the surprise.
They do develop along the series. Those very subtle changes in the characters' personalities really made me fall in love with them.
And, must I say, I had quite a few good surprises as the anime was reaching its end!
Final Thoughts on I My Me! Strawberry-Eggs
As I said, a very lighthearted anime that will probably lift up your mood. It'll make you laugh, and who knows; even might make you cry. It'll amuse and surprise just when you thought it couldn't, and you'll slowly understand what makes it so good.
I completely recommend it! read more
Okay I hate to admit this and I really hate to admit this because I'm a guy but this was a damn good series story wise, if it was redrawn and remade I sure as hell would enjoy it about a thousand times more as I'm sure most people will think as well. So without any further ado let us review.
Story- Like I said the story in this was great, the ending was a real heart jerker, and the laughs I enjoyed were pretty genuine. The only thing that prevented it from getting a ten was some lack of substance and how short the series was.
Art- Okay yeah this series definitely lost points with me here mostly because everything was not well drawn. I understand that this series is kind of old but I have to draw a line somewhere.
Sound- Okay I liked the voice actors in japanese and the voices really did match the characters; in terms of sound effects they did a decent job there too so yay good job.
Character- Well for the important characters yes there was some development but there were sometimes where I just felt uneasy as to what a character was like...what I mean to say is either the character was as easy to read as a book or about as readable as Latin is speakable
Enjoyment- I liked this series a lot it wasn't my first experience watching an anime that was at least roughly based around school life but it was definitely one of my more enjoyable experiences; it actually makes me expect great things from school life based animes unlike some series which will remain un-named cough cough super gals cough cough.
Overall- If you like a heart warming kind of story and enjoy a little bit of drama here and there I suggest this series if not I'm not sure why else you would pick it up unless the aspect of a man cross dressing to get a job as a teacher is just your thing... read more
