Small for his age, Yukinari has been bullied and abused by girls all his life. Now in high school, he has developed a rare condition: whenever girls touch him, or even come close, he breaks out in hives. Imagine his surprise, when he is suddenly transported to the city of Seiren on a mystic world invisibly orbiting the Earth, and populated with vast numbers of women and very few men. Fortunately, he has a new friend, Miharu-chan, whose touch inexplicably doesn't affect him.
This one of the most under-rated animes i've seen. Some people might not notice the charm in this anime,thus why i will tell you. And this is a review of the series as a whole(seasons 1&2).
I wont give a synopsis because you have probably already read it.
I think it's a really charming story. I cant stop feeling bad for Yukinari(the protonagist). He lives all alone at home. He barely have any friends and is bullied by both boys and girls. Also is he small for a boy, which leads to having even more complexes. But the most noticable is his symptom. He has had bad
experiences with girls. Ever since he was a child he has been bullied. This seem to be the origin of his sympton. Every time a girl touches him he breakes out in hives.
When he meets Miharu things change. Not only is she the only girls he isn't allergic to. He meets someone that cares for him. And not his she only cute, she has some amazing talents. Shes an amazing cook and a caring person. Also a bit of a loli. It makes you really happy that he meets someone like her. Because Yukinari really deserves it. Miharu tend to unconciosly get Yukinari in trouble and make him worried. Which often leads to funny situations. Since she's not used to earth she's very lost.
The love between Yukinari and Miharu progress slowly. It is obvious that he care a lot about her. If it had progressed any faster I don't think the harem story had worked.
Serien(the planet Miharu is from) is a dream harem. A beautiful planet filled with beutiful women that crave for men, which is kind of ironic when you compare Seiren to earth. ^^
The character animations has a really distinct style, i dont think i've seen anything like it. If we're talking about skill it's average. But i really like the use of colors and the female characters are drawn very well.
The OP and ED are both great. Especially the OP called "Going My Way". The lyrics are great and charming. The artist's voice is beautiful. The sound consist of many different instruments blended with digital sounds. The BGM is also really good. It's really difficult to explain why. You have to hear it yourself.
The series has some really great voice actors from various animes as Kanon(2006), Clannad, Nodame Cantabile and Baccano!
The characteres are really great. Instead of using a typcial male protoganist(A normal guy with brown hair and average height) we get something different for change. And Fukuyama is simply amazing, he does the job of being an idiot exellently. He's a filthy rich perv with dreams of having his dream harem(and the girls of Girls Bravo is a part of that). He treats women as sexobjects. Kirie always make sure to punish him. Fukuyama tend to show at any time, simply showing he has too much free time. lol
The show is really hilarious. The humor is really crazy, some people may find it just odd, well they're boring people then. There's a lot of exageration which is hilarious. There a few lolis more than most shows. Lolis are always funny and cute.
Well, Girls Bravo started out as a really good manga for me. When I started to watch the anime, it was almost the same as I expected it to be. Unlike the manga, this anime is loaded with lots of nude action. For a minute I was thinking I was watching a Hentai or something, but I wasn't. This anime is that pervertedly funny.
Basically the anime is one of your boy meets girl story lines. In this story the girl is from another world (like I haven't herd of that before), while the boy is completely allergic to women.
Yukinari Sasaki is a suffered young man
that went through his puberty like swiming in a pool of needles (ow..). He was bullied not by guys but rather women. Now even when he gets close to a girl, he brakes out into a horrible rash, which is very funny (yet not funny at the same time). As Yukinari went on his daily life of being tourmented by women, he finally gets home to relize that a childhood friend Kirie was in his bath tub. She punches the hell out of him and he falls into the bath tub where he is then magically transported to another world called Seiren.
In Seiren, Yukinari meets a girl named Miharu. What's strange about her is that when she gets close to him, he doesn't break out into a rash. He quickly becomes friends with her and learns that Seiren is a world that is populated by women. Yukinari then tries to escape the thousand of women that are try to steal him form Miharu and eventually returns home with Miharu at hand.
After that Miharu becomes Yukinari's new girlfriend, and Yukinari faces challenges that he thought would never happen in his life. Crazy women, Strange Creatures, and the completely perverted Kazuhara Fukuyama.
In the end, my thoughts on this anime were okay. It's not the best but it was popular in Japan for a while. I guess it was because of the well drawn women with large busts (Like many animes). But if you want to have a good laugh then watch this one, just be sure no little ones watch it (rated 17+).
Of all the genres of anime, none is so critically reviled as the harem genre. EVERYONE who considers themselves a serious anime fan will tell you how much they hate harem anime, and how anyone who watches it should be shot. Although this is what everyone says on the internet, some of those people MUST be lying because each year a bunch of idiots buy harem anime and studios make enough money to continue pumping them out. If everyone actually hated harem anime as much as they said they did online, the harem genre wouldn't exist.
So all harem anime are basically equal in quality
right? WRONG! Like all genres, the quality of harem anime can be placed on a Gaussian curb. It is just difficult to notice the difference in quality because the average is so shitty. Now, what would a harem anime that is 6 or 7 standard deviations to the left of that curb average look like? Girls Bravo!
We begin our wonderful tale with MC that all girls instantly hate for some reason. In this world, girls beat up guys they think are dorky rather than simply ignoring them. Our MC hates girls because they are all so mean! He even breaks out into hives whenever girls come near him. His luck changes when he falls into a giant pool he inexplicably has in his house and is somehow transported to a planet of all girls...that all speak Japanese. Apparently all the men on this planet have died and this must have been a very recent event because this alien species isn't extinct yet. Our bland and vertically challenged MC meets a pink haired bimbo who instantly loves him simply because he's a guy. In fact ALL of the women on this planet want the D! However, this makes him uncomfortable and he goes back to Earth so he can get his ass kicked by a horrid bitch that lives in his house for reasons never explained. Fortunately for him and unfortunately for the audience, he somehow brought back the pink haired bimbo, whose personality and character development makes Chii from the first few episodes of Chobits look absolutely Shakespearean by contrast. Many REALLY stupid adventures then occur.
Is it possible to have a plot THIS fucking stupid and be enjoyable? Yes. It's called Axe Cop and it is a comic literally written by a 5 year old. The difference is that when a 5 year old creates a mindblowingly idiotic plot its cute. It is just a little kid thinking like a little kid. When a 47 year old Japanese manchild writes with the same quality, it isn't cute. It's fucking annoying. This is a show where the most cleverly written joke is a girl giving very explicit fellatio to a banana...for about 4 fucking minutes of screen time! The animation in this show was at least passable though, and at least it didn't take itself seriously. It is pretty sad when a show's greatest merit is the fact that at least it never even tried in the first place. In summary, avoid this show like the plague!
Story: The main premise is that the protagonist (that's the one who gets the least screen time out of all of the characters) has a phobia of women and he breaks out in hives when he's touched by one. This premise is pretty much ignored throughout the anime. Yes, when he is touched by another girl, he breaks out in hives, but apart from that, nobody really pays much attention to him or his condition.
Art: This was fine overall. The only thing I didn't like was that for some reason (could just be the version I watched, not sure) the blood (as in nosebleeds) was
Sound: Again, this was fine.
Characters: Two words - obnoxious and irritating. The protagonist was rarely seen/heard, the only other male character was a persistant pervert (persistant to the point of annoying) and the myriad of attractive bishoujo that flocked around him had severe personality problems, such as: defining anything and everything as "edible"; requiring anger management for overly violent tendancies; being the most selfish/spoilt brat ever invented. The most endearing character was the...thing (don't really know what it was) that they called Shrimpy.
Overall Enjoyment: If you like bishoujo and don't really care about anything else, you'll like this. If you want something with more depth (bishoujo and depth can go together, ie Maburaho and others) then look elsewhere.
