Kyou kara Ore wa!! Is another delinquent anime, but a real good one. I am a sucker for anime about delinquents for example Yu Yu Hakusho , GTO, Shonan Junai Gumi(the prequel to GTO), and Tenjou Tenge. Kyou kara Ore wa is closer to the likes of Shonan Junai Gumi and the beginning of Yu Yu hakusho. This Ova though holds its own against all those anime mentioned earlier which is not easy to do. Anyways onto the review;
Story: The story does not have an overall plot or big arc story-line that it follows, it is more like an episodic anime. The anime starts with the two main characters entering a new school but want to change their image to bad-boys or delinquents . The kick is they never met each other until recently and they don't really get along at first. Even though the anime might be episodic it does not feel like your normal episodic anime because they have so much going on every episode, that your wondering how did they end up from point A the beginning of the episode to point G at the end of the episode. The two main characters get themselves in some ridiculous situations which are hilarious. The story also has really good humor, it is clean, fun and does not rely on toilet jokes or gross stuff. The slapstick humor part is done right and not overplayed. First episode felt like a movie ( it was an hour long) because of all of the things going on and your glued to your seat to see what happens next. Even with all the humor it also has some great fight scenes and some serious moments also.It Also has a little bit of romance.
Animation: Since it is an ova the animation has better quality than if it would have been a regular TV series. I really enjoyed the fight scenes which were done really nice. It does have that 90's animation that I enjoy. Studio Pierrot did the animation they also did the animation for GTO so both anime have similar animation and character designs. The two main characters designs almost made me not want to watch the anime especially Itou's design mostly the hair due which Ill talk about later. It wasn't that the designs were bad it just made them look goofy and hard to take them serious but I believe that's what the original author had in mind.
Sound: Probably the weakest part of the anime only due to the fact they did not have an opening song and the ending theme song I didn't really like. Other than that though the background music in scenes matched up perfectly to what was happening during the anime. The Voice Actors were top notch and they really added to the humor of the show.
Characters: I certainly believe that good character development is what makes a decent anime turn into a great anime. This is the case with Kyou kara Ore wa, it has great characters and they are developed well through. The first episode does a great job developing the main characters and it even starts developing secondary characters for later on. The main character Mitsuhashi, Takashi wants to be have a bad boy image at his new school so he gets his hair permed and dyed to blonde. He is most known for his dirty fighting techniques but is also very strong. The other MC is Itou, Shinji he also wants a bad boy image before he goes to his new school so he gets his hair spiked to ridiculous lengths. Before watching the anime I thought Itou looked really lame because of the hair but after the watching the first episode he becomes my favorite character(don't judge a book by its cover lol). Itou does not fight dirty he fights straight forward and fair and is also very strong, but fighting fair can get him in trouble sometimes. Even though Itou is my favorite character I relate more to Mitsuhashi because he fights dirty and I also use to fight dirty in middle school and high school that's probably one of the reasons I really liked this anime. There is also a really good supporting cast but I am only going to talk about a certain supporting member his name is Imai and this guy is bat shit crazy and funny. Imai is from a different school than the Main Characters and Imai is the best fighter that school has. Imai is really strong and good looking but also really stupid and sometimes you think the only person that can beat him up is himself. Imai gets himself in some weird and hilarious situations usually due to the MCS themselves.
Enjoyment: You know how some people say you have wait for a certain anime to get good for example "just wait till episode 5 that's when it really picks up" this ova is not like that from episode 1 you are hooked and wanting more. This series could of gone 100 episodes and I would have watched every episode, which they could have done since the manga is 30 something volumes. All ten episodes of this ova stay fresh and exciting which is rare for an anime to do.
I am definitely going to pick up the manga after this and I suggest the few that are reading this to pick up Kyou kara Ore wa!! Ova. You wont regret it, because its one of the funniest anime I have watched. read more
Both of the series have a male protagonist with similar personality. Sakuragi Hanamichi and Mitsuhashi Takashi are a lot alike; they have idiotic smiles and laughs, Hanamichi used to be a delinquent while Mitsuhashi is still one, they both like to fight though they often use tricks to escape from the difficult situations and find the easier way from them.
Both animes are full of humorous things; their genres are shounen and comedy, while in Slam Dunk sport (basketball) has a great role as well.
Both series were aired in the '90s, that's why the design of the anime is unique, i find the way they make the characters into chibis cute and adorable.
Kyou kara Ore wa!! isn't subbed completely, only the first OVA has English subs unfortunately.
The main characters of Kyou Kara are very similar to the protagonist of Slam Dunk, who is also a delinquent with bad luck with ladies.
Very similar situations and character personality, must watch if you have seen one of them. You might feel the blond guy in Kyou Kara Ore Wa!! are cheating but after the first EP and half of the second EP you will change your mind.
Practically the same. Short OVA series with an episode about an hour and most likely the same characters. The Onizuka, Ryuuji duo is kinda the same like the Mitsuhashi and Itou duo. In both Anime its about delinquents dealing with other delinquents and tries to pick up girls. I would say that KKOW is more comedic than SJG (SJG is at some points more serious than funny) but you get in both the best dose of delinquents!
