[Final Update: Finished Watching the Series]
Never underestimate a childish anime. From beginning to end "Gakkatsu" kept me entertained. Each character had their own charisma and made the show more fun to watch. In terms of short anime I have watched before, this really stands among the top. My only complaint is that it was too short.

If you're looking for a quick laugh this Spring, Gakkatsu! is pretty much that. With only 5 minutes per episode, there's not much to expect, but if giving the audience a good laugh is their aim, Gakkatsu! does what it was made to do.

Being the class president, Takachiho uses the time to debate a certain topic every episode. That's basically it.

This show is based off day to day experiences with no sense of an overlying story arc.

Art - 6
The art in this series is extremely lackluster from an objective standpoint. Only basic / extreme features are pronounced properly. This read more
