The story centers on Nayu, a middle school girl who shocks her schoolmates on the first day of school by wearing black lace panties. She likes this kind of underwear, and she tries to "spread the word on the merits of [these kinds of] underwear" via an underwear club with her schoolmates, who are worried about their bodies' development and which underwear to choose.
I originally watched this show because the synopsis for it seemed absolutely ridiculous, but surprisingly enough it was good for a lot more than just cheap laughs. After reading other people's opinion on it, it made me very sad how few people really understand this anime.
The target audience is in fact not horny young men attracted to 2D girls. It isn't even ecchi. It is targeted to everyone with an open mind.
The message this show is trying to get across is that underwear is a lot more than just eye-candy for men.
It portrays painfully well what the state of the world is for underwear and how people can't shake off the belief that it is something shameful, something to hide and talk about only in secrecy -- which is a pity, because, as this show proves, there is a lot to be said there, and the designs are worth admiring.
While the anime is lacking in visuals, sound and unique characters (except Nayu), many of the problems it deals with no anime to my knowledge has dealt with before.read more
When i listed this anime and saw what it was about i tought this was going to be a dumb anime and i would get bored from it, but to my surprise this anime was good and unique on its own way and even if it's about underwear they don't exploit that to make it a fan service anime, even though there are funny situations involving that.
Follow Nayu a girl that is seen with bad eyes because she loves underwear, she wants to design underwear but people around thinks she is a pervet and the mean girls started rumors years back that she is a slut, she meets this girls Haruka and Yako that were curious about her, and because she loves underwears, she starts to touch Haruka's breast but for the underwear and they start to become friends.
[b][u]Art & Animation[/u][/b]
The art style was ok, the animation was good, nothing special nor smooth but it was good.
It was ok, appropiated for the scenes, the voice acting was good.
One of the good points fo this anime is the characters, they were really well made, they were interesting and enjoyable, Nayu being the most interesting of the cast, they all have their own problems and they will help eachother to overcome the problems they have.
It really was a good anime, it was different from what i saw, you should take a break from any anime with action, adventures etc. to see this one, you may leran more about underwear (lol) and maybe you will shed a tear in one certain episode.read more
Third time is a charm onto my review...Warning may offend rabid fanboys. This is not a hate review but rather a seething dislike for this show which is offensive to some people that are cerebral.
Story-. One of the main character indulges in the quantifiable merits of wearing flashy laced underwear. Hooray...Then we have the birth of an underwear club with a rational soliloques on what type of underwear to wear in certain situations. Did hooters write this script? Did they cajole and or bribe ZEXS into producing more garbage?
For this encapsulating set of dialogue I will now discuss the most fashionable models of underwear. Model 1# The slip-on and slip-off version suited to a night of strip poker. Model 2# The transparent model which even makes Superman sing his praises. Model 3# This particular model has an open comparment for backdoor access, perfect for a quickie!
Now to be serious I do have my qualms towards younger girls flaunting their bodies. Instead of using these methods of discovering how your body functions , take your sex ed class with seriousness. I'm not sure if they pledge abstinence through the education system in japan whether that is relevant or not towards the content of the show I'm not so sure. I bet you fanbomust be whacking your pencils when you see these girls going to school. It's also blatantly obvious that the concept for an underwear club is just another excuse for prepubescent fanservice.
These girls are 12 or 13 years old not 17 or 18 year olds with vagarious underwear, how is that educational or even stimulating sexually...Well for fans or future convicted pedophiles this might be enticing.I'm finally saying what I've always wanted to say against these draconian perverts.
Art-At times the show has glimmering art which may enchant some. For the most part the art entails the typical humoid walking block. The face's have little definition rather the character's look like duplicates but with different body shapes and hair colours. The eyes are bulby and protruding which might may some think that they have owl genes.
Sounds-The music is classical but what it's trying to depict with that type of musical genre is beyond me. Then we have the engrossing J-pop music that make most sensible men cringe. The background music tries to compliment the characters and the tribulations they go through..(what would that be?).
Characters-Now for the characters, firstly with Hayama Nayu the main heroine who is shy and reluctant at first to defame herself. At first you think she would have a little bit of equanimity with her role and some of the events but that wasn't meant to be.She's also the leader of the slut strut fan club. The second main character Jinguuji Yako the more hyperactive and recalcitrant of the group. Pssh fanboys she might give you a lap dance for a coca cola.With her body shape you would think she's 9, anyone who find's her sexy needs to be spade and neutured. The last but not least the girl sporting a maturational figure with bugs bunny eye popping cannons to boot Shiraishi Haruka. Another girl who has the typical shy characteristics but also has the perverse glow surrounding her (No I'm not talking about the glow from her naked body).
Enjoyment- I would rate this as a 5/5 piles of cow manure coupled with being drenched in the Ganges river and then mixed with bile. That about sums up this component.
Overall-Fanboys sharpen your pencils you might lose a few shavings during the series. If your interested in a show replete with fanservice then please watch a porn or search under the hentai directory.These options actually have girls above 12 or 13+. Thank you for your time...Don't hate and revile me too much..:) PS:Even George bush's abstinence program is more salient as a sex education learning tool than this grangrenous leper of an anime.
If you have a complaint or problems in which you would like to address send a message on my profile. I'm open to critics and alleged fanatical fans. read more
By now, every regular MAL visitor is pretty much used to all sorts of anime, be it action, drama, romance, or something light-hearted and silly. There is one thing a lot of them have in common, though: They can be rather naughty from time to time. To see an anime that takes the subject of showing off cleavage and underwear without trying to lean towards the 'ecchi' side is rather courageous. It didn't exactly succeed in staying innocent and all, but it did bring us a silly yet heart-warming story featuring characters with each their own personality, a loose yet fitting storyline and some fairly decent art.
"Chuu Bra!!" is really an anime targeted towards a female audience. It's light-hearted, silly and involves girls talking about their undergarments. For guys, this might take a turn to the pervy, but it's not all that bad. It did add in some subtle elements to prevent leaning towards a female-only audience too much by including a guy's perspective, and some rather "interesting" scenes which to be honest didn't exactly have to be in there, but they were a fun extra bit.
The story involves a girl named Nayu Hayama, a middle schooler with an obsession for female underwear. After accidentally tripping during the opening ceremony and revealing some rather interesting panties, rumors stated some wrong things about her, but this didn't stop her from making some good friends and starting a "society" (club-like, but not a club) that researches underwear for girls who are not sure what kind they should be wearing. The whole society is pretty much the main plot element that keeps the story together, as the main characters always meet up during events and such, which improves their overall character development. The society includes our main character, two of her female friends (Yako and Haruka), and a guy who can't look at underwear for a second without feeling embarassed (Hiroki). Later on, another girl joins in (the typical rich-type girl who looks tough and all, but is actually kind and stuff) named Kiyono. All the club really does is converse about underwear and the likes, but as in anime like K-On, it tends to lead to different everyday conversations. The rest is pretty standard school stuff, and event planning and such, similar to before said anime.
Granted, the story seems a bit bland, but it's the whole "talking about underwear as if it's the most normal thing in the world" that makes the anime interesting. Normally, you'd expect it to go all ecchi and stuff when it comes to that, and it does have its moment from time to time, but it's surprisingly innocent as a whole. For the 12 episodes that it has, it's really nicely executed, and you can say it "provides fan-service without it feeling like fan-service". It simply doesn't feel naughty or anything, it's just fun to watch.
The art and sound are basic. It's a shame the show itself got a very poor BD release, resulting in artefacts and poor upscaling. However, the art as a whole isn't that bad, but it's nothing special either. It's similar to anime like "Love Lab" and "K-On", which still makes it entertaining. Same goes for the sound, it being nothing special, but not bad either, and both the art and sound add to the overall silly atmosphere this anime has. It really fits well with the character builds, and I wouldn't have seen it drawn in any other way.
In conclusion, this anime is a unique experience. Even though it's categorized as both "Comedy" and "Ecchi", it doesn't exactly feel like the latter should be marked, but it's understandable. Granted, the underwear bits (which there are a lot of) can be pleasing to the male eye and mind (or female depending on what you're into), but it's certainly not the main goal of the anime. Not only does it educate girls by learning them about proper underwear, it brings it in a way that both males and females can enjoy it without feeling awkward. The characters in overall are a lot of fun to watch, each sharing their own traits and having their own personality. Although character development is difficult with only 12 episodes, I think they did a pretty decent job at it. I would probably re-watch this with friends and have a laugh, too. It's quite a fun little anime, and although not exactly memorable, it does leave kind of an impression on you. I certainly would recommend giving this a try, either if you're into comedy or if you simply want to check out the "fan-service". Either way, it's a fun little show to watch inbetween. Something I never would've thought I would say about an anime mostly featuring women's underwear. At least, without having certain thoughts about it, if you know what I mean. read more
