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 read more

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 read more

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...

Art: 10
I simply loved it. Anatomy, colours, places...
It's indeed read more

Meganebu! is a very fun loving and optimistic anime. It could be seen as inspirational, i personally found this anime inspirational by the theme of 'No matter what life throws at you, keep going, for you.'
This silly, comical anime surprised me with was how some episodes were very touching, it made me tear up.

What I liked about this anime was the art. Very colorful and happy. The sound was okay, sometimes i felt the music didn't match. Character, i loved the characters. I loved how the main character was very passionate for the love of glasses. I loved how they all stuck read more
