What do you think when you watch sports anime? Many who're fans of Kuroko, Yowamushi, or even Haikyuu would probably think
However, you sad emo pieces of trash who'd rather watch shows like Elfen Lied and Serial Experiments Lain most likely think sports anime is crap and is a terrible excuse of an anime. Well do I have news for you guys.
That's right, I spent 2 entire days marathoning the five season and still ongoing show that is Teekyuu! Get ready for the ride of your lives.
That synopsis doesn't the anime justice. I can tell you what Teekyuu is about in just one picture:
That's right, it's
literally nothing. One moment they'll be going to the beach, the next they'll be in Cambodia getting sworn at.
And another thing: the entire show is fast af. You think shows lasting 6 minutes is short? Try two freaking minutes and still managing to have an opening sequence. How do they do it? It's simple, it goes machspeed. If you blink once, you'll miss a whole joke. Teekyuu is truly a challenge for the experienced of otaku.
Now let's talk a bit about out four special snowflakes
First off is Yuri Oshimoto, the only girl of the four that has a sense of sanity. Her purpose in the show is to watch over the other 3 like a human seat belt and make sure they don't end up as strippers on the side of the street. Every slapstick comedy needs a sane person to interject, and that's what Yuri is: a big giant interjection.
Who here likes pink hair on a cute anime character? I sure do, your grandpappy sure dies
So what happens when you put pink hair on a nittlebopper named Shijou?
One spaztastic demigod on LSD.
Yes, Nasuno is by far the most snazzy Himedere you've ever seen. Whether it be traveling by eagle, having the mascot of KFC as a father, or intimidating a baker to sell himself as a slave, Nasuno is most certainly a rich dumb blonde without the blonde. Also, she has a sort of relationship with Yuri's little brother. Nnnnnnng, I ship it hard.
And now, the moment you've all been waiting for. That's right, we're about to talk about everyone's favorite character in all of existence. Yes, I introduce you to Mario Brando, I mean Marimo Bandou.
Voiced by seiyuu Goddess Kana Hanazawa-sama, she's literally the reason half of the people who watched Teekyuu actually watched it. However, what many don't expect about Marimo is her personality.
You ever watch an anime where a school girl gets confronted by an old, smelly, and hairy old man? That is Marimo. Legit talk, on a scale from 1 to 10 on pervertedness, Marimo is a 69.
There's seriously nothing good about the music in Teekyuu. I applaud them for somehow managing to include it in their 2 minute time frame, but that's about it. Other than the season 4 opening, none of the others are worth mentioning.
Now hold onto your seats for this one guys. Strapped in? Ok
You know the frames in Teekyuu? Yes, they're all done by a single guy. Pretty amazing, right? Considering you watched Shirobako, you can probably comprehend just how much work that really is. Because of that, it isn't necessarily fair to judge every single frame and compare it to studios like Madhouse or A-1 Steak Sauce. Yeah, he's that important.
Let's be honest here guys: most of the time when there's a review of an anime on AA it's always positive. Well guess what?
This will be the same ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) the 2 minute length can be a turnoff for a lot of people. By the way, don't try and watch Teekyuu on your TV, it takes hella long to finish buffering.
I will also say that the jokes of Teekyuu were humorous and random, the kind of jokes that I live in a comedy anime. I had a good time watching this show since you can literally watch the entire 6 seasons in a day.
If you'd like an extremely short and funny comedy anime to marathon with maximum retardation into the mix, Teekyuu is the show for you. My suggestions is to not focus on the sound and animation too much, as what really makes Teekyuu the bag of gags that it truly is are the jokes. You seriously don't have enough time to focus on everything in this show, so I suggest you simply try and keep up and remember: don't blink
