If I were to describe this show, I’d only use one word: ridiculous.
And it’s not “ridiculous” in a bad way. Sometimes it may sound pointless, some of you may feel put down by the opening song but, trust me, you have to give a chance to this.
The story (8) is really nothing exceptional, it all revolves around a theme that is packed into a six minutes show. There is never any continuity between the episodes but that doesn’t really matter ‘cause the main goal here it to make you laugh, or at least, if you’re not really into the genre, smile.
There’s a short recap at the beginning of each episode so even if you happen to miss the first episodes, you’ll surely know what’s going on and decide for yourself if it’s worth giving a shot to the other episodes too.
Sound (9) is really enjoyable. The opening is weird, you’ll get some piano music with Namikawa-san awkwardly singing for a whole minute.
Ridiculous but still amusing. The ending song is rather quite, it’s the off-vocal version of the opening but what makes it amusing is the fact that do appear the humming as lyrics subs (well, the opening itself consists in Namikawa humming).
The casting is okay, there are some new voices such as Juri Kimura, not probably as popular or well-known as our Namikawa-san, starring as Ponta (the main character, he voiced Isana Yashiro from K-Project and Italy in Hetalia).
Then, again, the characters (9) shown are really few, but they manage to entertain the audience. We have the smart girlfriend, Akomi-san, that plays the role of the ‘straight man’, although she’s a girl, pointing out her boyfriend’s idiocy. And, there again, we get to know Ponta’s friends, all as idiot as him.
They're usually shown as busy in some gathering they do, meetings where they try to discuss smart and pressuring issues such as the global warming without reaching any plausible conclusion and mostly with poor results.
And hell if they are great.
In an anime industry full of clichés, I think that even this level of idiocy is a new way in bringing a humor that doesn’t need panties or ecchi jokes to amuse.
About the art (7) I’d say it’s rather fine. The animation, the colors and everything else are okay. It’s a six-minute show, don’t expect sparkling colors or something worth of Free or Utapri, but the animation and the backgrounds make everything enjoyable.
They made a good use of their budget.
Enjoyment (10) is surely ten! It’s a light comedy, it doesn’t take too much of your time. If you’re searching for a new anime but don’t have too much time to spend on it, watch Kare Baka. It’ll make you laugh a little and realize that, every time you’ve told yourself that you’re an idiot, you still didn’t know what idiocy was about.
So, overall, it’s short and light. If you’re into the comedy genre, even if paradoxical at times and non-sense, you should give this a shot!read more
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.
How could an anime be so random, so funny, so bazaar, and so unbelievable?
There really isn't a story. It's more of a slice of life kind of story or a "whatever happens" story. Even so, still very enjoyable and funny!
The art successfully shows the matching expressions to the situation. That's the most important thing in anime comedies. Overall the art is good. The characters are drawn decently enough not to look disfigured. The background and characters aren't very detailed in color (but tis' all good if the characters are hot >_>)
The fact they purposely made the intro like that, deserves a slow applaud and a sarcastic "job well done".
The characters are so... indescribable... Each one of them are exotically weird in different areas yet all them are hard to hate because of their innocence. Not one of them are normal except the female lead.
There's so much to laugh at throughout the series, it's hard not to laugh. The things you'll think that are weird become laughable in the anime.
If you want an anime to give you quick great laughs, weird looks, and lots of face palms, go right ahead and watch this anime. read more
