This is like watching a train wreck or a bad accident. You want to look away but you can't stop watching it.
The word that describes the anime best is: Idiotic (like Ninomiya)
Not in a bad way, though.
There is no special story line, it's like a bunch of filler episode.
I know the anime is supposed to be funny, but it the level of stupidness made me feel uncomfortable.
Although it was still enjoyable enough for me and I had to laugh a few times.
The opening reminded of that "Trololo" song and I liked it.
The ending is also quite refreshing, because of the lyrics.
First thing I gotta say about this anime: wholesome.
There is just something about this anime that is so wholesome, and I don’t think I can quite pinpoint exactly what makes it seem this way to me. I think it has something to do with the fact that most of the characters are not smart. This show definitely pulled off the “dumb, but the kind that’s cute” well, and I can tell that was one of the huge the goals of the story. It’s an over-the-top and innocent comedy.
The opening was also, from my limited anime-watching experience, quite original. You would have to watch the
opening in order to get what I mean.
Now, on to the reasons why I rated this only a six.
First off, despite the opening being quite original, it does get a bit repetitive after you’ve watched a bunch of episodes. As a result, it kinda loses what made it funny, because well, you end up already knowing what’s going on in the opening after seeing it a couple of times.
There are also times when the humor is a bit predictable to me, so it doesn’t end up as funny to me as I think it could have been if there were some tweaks to the timing or presentation of the humor. Since this is supposed to be primarily a comedy anime, I think that’s kinda important in terms of what to improve in this show.
Another reason is that there were a couple of interesting characters that were sort of mentioned or introduced, but they never really got much screen time nor explanation about their personality. I really kinda wish there were more episodes in this anime that introduced these characters further (such as the male lead’s master and grandmother).
Finally, there’s the problem that is quite common in a lot of anime: you watch an anime, then realize that the anime is basically telling you to go read the manga if you want a continuation of the story (and you know this anime is telling you this because the last episode just isn’t satisfying). The last episode of this anime is basically just like the other episodes in this anime (meaning it doesn’t feel like a “last episode”). But I guess that makes sense since this anime doesn’t really have much of a overarching conflict that needs to be solved nor any plot. There’s only so much of a story you can show with only eight episodes that each are only five minutes long.
Despite me rating this a six however, this does not necessarily mean that it’s a horrible anime. I actually started really enjoying it after a couple episodes in because it really is such a cute anime.
The art is simple, but it’s clean and easy on the eyes. It fits well for the shoujo demographic. The animation’s not terrible either, for a comedy anime.
I was able to be invested enough in characters like the male lead and his interactions with the adults in his life. I also haven’t personally watched many over-the-top comedy anime that were aimed towards a teenage female audience, so it was a pretty refreshing experience for me.
In addition, I liked the idea of this whole story having a male lead that is good-looking, but, instead of intelligent and perfect like many other shoujo male leads, a dumb guy. This is a great set up for an awesome parody of shoujo manga tropes.
I wouldn’t say that this comedy anime is going to fit everyone’s sense of humor, but personally, I did enjoy it. It’s not an anime I would scream at everyone to watch, but I suppose it’s an alright anime to pass some time with if you want something comedic and shoujo-y, yet not drama-heavy.
Ah, if there were only a way to sum up this anime without over-glorifying it or making it sound lame... This is a fine line that this anime walks between being impossibly stupid and brilliantly profound.
It is very short. This is good because if it were longer, I hardly think I would be able to continue watching it. The writers did an amazing job at proving over and over again that the boyfriend is stupid, yet from the depths of this stupidity come glimmers of unintentional brilliance.
Honestly, I understand why many people watch this anime and find it unappealing; the title alone is
enough to cast some serious doubt on the value of this particular show. But I justify the hour or so that I spent watching this anime in that there is something refreshing about being able to sympathize with the characters and consider things from an incredibly non-threatening point of view.
I don't think I would watch it again, but I am have no regrets for having watched it once already.
Literally this anime made my jaws break a lot. It was honestly pure daft by things coming out from the characters mouths, especially when the boyfriend and his friends discuss absolute pointless nonsense while they are always having meetings.
I can't think the best scenes from the top of my head but the comedy I thought was just pure silly and cute. I really wish they didn't make this anime 5 minutes each on damn 8 episodes. Ideally I think they should make each episodes at 23 minutes and have it finish at 12 rather than 8. I get why it has a low score but
at the same time, it has the potential to be better in extending each episodes length and add more episodes. I personally feel it could get away with a second season if it was given the chance. But I doubt that's gonna happen anytime soon, I'm still hoping for it though whenever it does lol.
I gotta say as well, the art wasn't bad, the opening song was interesting and every character was quite likeable especially the girlfriend. I mean I thought this anime would be a sorta in your face type of shoujo but it's really sweet and dumb to check out this anime.
If you ever need a laugh watch idiot boyfriend I dare ya! :D
