At Himaraya Third Technical School, five bespectacled members of the Glasses club are crazy about eyewear. Their leader, Akira Souma, founded the club to develop the X-ray glasses of his dreams, but their research has been slow in between getting into quirky escapades and fighting off student body president William Satou's attempts to further cut their tight club funding. With unbounded youthful passion, these friends set their minds on making their project a resounding success.

Ending Theme


Dec 30, 2013
Now, allow me to explain Meganebu! in a mildly-large nutshell: an under-budgeted club with an intense adoration for glasses try to complete their project of making X-Ray Glasses, all the while intensifying the love for glasses and getting the unfair School Council to boost their budget in order to make their project a success. Sounds short and simple, right?

*BZZZT* Wrong!

Meganebu! is a bit more than that. This twelve-episode joyride of an anime fuses five boys' love for glasses with a great amount of comedy, shenanigans, conflicts, X-Ray Glasses failures (Usually ending with explosions) and overall hilarity. I'm gonna go more in-depth here, so sit ...

NO MEGANE, NO LIFE. Sounds cheesy, but in this anime, it's awesome, so a very good anime has just ended, though the megane theme was very corny, I have to hand to Studio Deen for going around such cornyness. This was probably one of the most unique anime I've ever watched, ok time to present my ratings for each of this anime's category.

Good 7.

Story- Basically it has very simple theme, that has been exaggerated, however it's comedy genre without the sexual innuendo was very good.

Fair 6.

Art- I wish the guys would have wore their school's uniform, beside it kinda looks good on them, instead wearing ...

It's a very simple story, and amazing all the more because of it.
But, being a simple story, it is difficult to keep it interesting. There were a few boring moments...
Yet, it's been a very heart-warming, funny anime to watch.
I hope we'll get a second season, with events that get deeper into the troubles and personalities of the characters, because that is what I felt was missing the most. But with a little of that sense of lightness that permeates this first season.
It touches everything, but remains superficial. It's this anime's virtue, but also its vice...
