Have you been feeling sleep deprived?
Have you been feeling restless when trying to sleep?
Have you previously experienced insomnia?
Have you awoken up feeling tired in the morning?

If you answered, “yes" to any of these questions, look no further, there is a solution for you. It’s called, “Girlfriend (Kari)! The most sleep-inducing anime ever with cute characters, narrating you to sleep.

Now, what does “Girlfriend (Kari)” contain, one might ask? It contains four essential components: 1) no progression, 2) lackluster characters, 3) placid sounds, and 4) cute designs.

1) No Story Progression: Story progression is overrated. Who needs it? We don’t read more

Girlfriend is the adaptation of a dating simulation game for mobile phones in which you date the girls of Seiou academy. This might trick you into believing this series is about romance and structured a la Amagami, but in reality Girlfriend is a school comedy composed of individual episodes featuring different main characters (and often side characters) that have daily life, friendship or reaching your own goals as central themes.

While there's nothing particularly wrong with it on a surface level, I found Girlfriend to be an exceptionally bland rendition of the school-set slice of life category. The issues lie in its structure, as standalone read more

If you are curious as to what happened in twelve episodes of Girlfriend (Kari), simply multiply that number by zero. This adaptation was as flat and uninspiring as anime come, with all characters of significance assigned popular archetypes. Distinctive personalities were nowhere to be found, ignored completely in favor of these simplified archetypes and their associated cliches. I would relate this viewing experience to watching a bird attempt to fly with a broken wing. It truly is a shame, considering the string of accolades and talent decorating this assembly of seiyuu veterans.

Despite the girls being second-rate individually in complexion, their group chemistry read more

Girlfriend (Kari) is a slice of life anime that takes on an everyday school life approach. Girlfriend's strong points are...umm...I'm going to get back to that later. Girlfriend's weak points are pretty much everything. Despite the rating I gave this show, I'm going to be fair with this review. While I don't consider this show "bad", it's still very un-enjoyable, even though I like the slice of life genre.

This review will contain no spoilers as there's no story to spoil. Yep. There isn't anything I could say that would spoil any events in this anime, that would ruin the enjoyment for the read more
