Katsu Kaizou is a very gullible, 17-year-old high school student and a believer in science fiction, aliens, ghosts, UFOs, conspiracies, etc. He thinks that everything going on around him is the result of some sort of alien plot to take over the world. Each story is pretty much self-contained and is completely bizarre. Kaizou joins the school's science club, makes new friends, and ends up coming in contact with all sorts of strange things like log people, deadly sushi, pee-blades, scary infections, robot invasions, ghosts, living dolls, and more!
This by far is one of the most unique anime out there. I mean everything is unique, the storyline, the characters, even the animation! This anime can be greatly appreciated by comedy lovers and users who have a passion for let's say 'crazed' storylines. But be warned, most of the comedy in this one are 'dirty', in other words related to sex, and are just weird. Compared to other comedy/gag anime out there this has to be the best.
Now let's take a deeper look at the sound and animation since we identified most of the other areas. I would give the sound a 9/10, since the OSTs, particularly the opening and ending themes were very funny to listen to and they suited this type of gag anime. The art on the other hand was OUTSTANDING, (yes I have to say it caps) since it is so well done and it stands out from other typical artworks. Describing the artwork using words is hard so I'll use weird words like 'crisp' and 'clean' to describe it.
The comedy really had me going there throughout the anime. Its really the king of gags. Enjoyment 9/10read more
This series is well written, has good artwork, good animation, good characters, and a decent soundtrack. So why only a 7? The reason it's so good, and the reason it's not a 10 is the same: it's a prototype for Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.
It's pretty simple really. The characters look, sound, and act like the characters in SZS. The animation, soundtrack, sound effects are all similar for obvious reasons. The quirky randomness is the same. The way the story seems to take place at school, but the characters meet around town and engage in silliness is the same.
But as stated earlier, it's a prototype. As you watch, you can tell Kette ni Kaizou is less mature and sophisticated than SZS. The former has less social commentary(though it does happen occasionally) and replaces it with ridiculousness, sexual jokes, and general being over the top.
Since these connections are so clear, they are constantly in your mind as you watch. I'm sure this was done intentionally to ride on SZS's popularity but that's what's holding it back. It doesn't have it's own identity, and will always be overshadowed by it's better and more successful older(or younger depending on how you look at it) brother. It's still fun, enjoyable, and funny, just not great.read more
Looking for an anime with the wackiest, silliest, dirtiest humor out there? Want an anime that's so ridiculous and over the top that it would put other comedy anime to shame? Look no further than Katte Ni Kaizou, translated as, "Kaizou Who Does As He Pleases!"
To tell you the truth, the story description on the site is only true for the first two episodes. The whole idea about being a gullible boy with delusions isn't really carried out throughout the rest of the series. Still, it doesn't detract from how ridiculous this anime is.
The art is pretty memorable. Shaft made the characters' movements very fluid and there aren't too many still frames throughout this anime. Both animation and art were very well done.
Weirdass opening and weirdass ending (very catchy ending theme). Both fit well with the show and as for the actual OST, it was quirky which fit with the overall mood of the show.
Very flat and one dimensional characters. It's really not a big deal though because this isn't what the show is focused on (it's gag-based and wants to make you laugh). The characters were there for the sake of being there and fit their roles pretty well for the most part. Want development? This show says, "Fuck it. Let's have as much fun as we can with weird ass gags."
Overall Enjoyment: 10
For what this show is, it succeeds in being hilarious. It's unique, quirky, and the weirdest anime I've ever seen. Highly enjoyable if you want to laugh or if you're looking for something different.
Would I watch a sequel?
Sure, why the hell not? XDread more
Hey folks, this will be a review for Katte ni Kaizou. Ah another splendid shaft anime. Honestly this one is pretty wacky and I missed out on a lot of the jokes. This ones might be a bit challenging for people who are not aware of Japanese culture.
There really isn't a story. Our story revolves around club full of weirdos who spend most of the anime being weird in some way. That' the best I can do to summarize it. The anime is skit based, which means it runs through a small joke or idea then moves onto the next idea. Each episode generally contains two or more skits. At the start of the anime I couldn't stop laughing, the pool episode had me in stitches for awhile. However about episode 4 out of 6 I had a hard time following the action and ultimately enjoyed the anime a little less.
The art is done by shaft so it is obviously the best it can be. The soundtrack was decent, nothing really to write home about.
The characters were fun and made the comedy crazy and fun. Katsu, Kaizou is our main male lead. Kaizou believes he is a cyborg and must fight random beings. He has all kinds of delusions and odd friends that you meet through the show. Natori, Umi is some kind crazy girl that loves pain and death. She is so odd that she often is banned from activities and areas because of how she acts. Tsubouchi, Chitan is Kaizou's underling, and is there purely to be used as a punching bag. Saien, Suzu is the cool headed doctor girl who is supposed to build and upgrade Kaizou. There are some characters that we see every now and then but mostly this is the group you will see every episode.
I enjoyed this anime a lot. I wish it was a bit longer so they could have gone into the characters. When you stop being apart of the jokes it lost a little charm, because the jokes were the primary focus. That's about all you can say about this anime I think. Its pretty funny and it only has 6 episodes so give it a watch.read more
