Since there were no reviews for this anime, I decided to write it.
This is my first time writing a review, and English is my second language, don’t expect much from this.
***For people who have not seen “Tesagure Bukatsumono”
I’m pretty sure more than 80 percent of the people will look at the title, and think “WTF is this?”
This is the spin-off of “Tesagure Bukatsumono” series. Tesagure means “find it by your hands”, and bukatsu is extracurricular activities. The word mono after that is just to make the word bukatsu look cooler, so forget about that. It’s not the disease. This Anime just talks about “What
ifs” for extracurricular activities every episode.
Before you guys watch this, there are couple things you should know. First off, this is an anime where the voice actresses fool around, and make you laugh. And was all put into an anime afterwards. Half of what they’re talking about are nonsense girl’s talk, which are adlibs.
Since the girls are talking one after another, sometimes they overlap and conflict with other people. Due to that reason, the subtitles doesn’t tell you everything. So if you want to really enjoy this, I would study Japanese and their culture. And what I mean by their culture, the jokes they make sometimes will be things that are popular in Japan right now, and they try to make a parody out of it.
The animation style has horrible computer graphics, since the animation is not important.
Oh, you should watch Tesagure Bukatsumono first season, since it’s shorter in length with 11 miutes, when this spin-off is 24 minutes long. (Wow I can’t believe the spin-off is longer than the original.) And then, think over if this anime is good enough to take your time.
***For people who have seen “Tesagure Bukatsumono”
They added 5 more characters of adaption from a nonpopular manga series.
And this time, they don’t talk about extracurricular activities, but tries new things. Some are really hilarious like when they play the werewolf game, which is popular in Japan.
Mikami, Shiori (Yuruyuri: Akari, Attack on Titan: Krista Lenz)
Takamori, Natsumi (Sakurasou:Kamiigusa Misaki, Another:Misaki Mei) wow misakis
Ookubo, Rumi (Acchi Kocchi:Tsumiki, Yuruyuri:Chinatsu)
Uesaka, Sumire (Chuunibyou:Dekomori, The idolmaster Cinderella girls:Anastasia)
Komatsu, Mikako (Teenage romance comedy SNAFU: Totsuka, Nisekoi:Tsugumi Seishirou).
Its not the same as the series before, but it is still good, that I looked forward to it every week.
But just telling you guys, the story in the end of each episode is not good, so you can skip those.
This anime looks like it was done by 5-year-olds. And I'm sure the production staff worked hard, but the fact is this is worse than Kemono Friends. The characters are dreadfully forgettable and the sound quality is average at best.
But this anime had me laughing out loud for hours.
In essence, what you get when you watch Tesagure! is a group of young Japanese voice actresses goofing off. The best parts of the anime are done ad-lib, and this is the most self-aware anime I've ever seen. Sometimes the jokes won't click, but then the other actresses just laugh at how bad the jokes were.
This anime is perfect for people who just want to chill and laugh their worries away. Watching this anime is like talking to friends IRL.
If you're into battles and character development, please do not watch this show. It is not for you.
