Mizuki Usami is a passionate member of her school's art club, but the club has a problem—Usami is the only member who takes her craft seriously! The lazy club president constantly sleeps through activities and Collette hasn't regularly attended club activities in quite some time. Uchimaki Subaru, despite being an exceptional artist who could win an award if he tried, is obsessed with drawing the perfect 2D wife.

Light-hearted and comedic in tone, Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! follows Usami as she struggles to do art club-like activities, often obstructed by her motley crew of good-for-nothings and her distracting crush on Subaru.

Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! or also known as Konobi was one of the best animes I have ever watched in my lifetime. My heart went doki doki a lot lol.

I bet many people thought this will become the romcom of the season, I did personally to but it's just a goofy show overall.

The story is something certainly I don't complain about, because the comedy and art always makes up for it. I just thought it kinda slow-pasted and a little boring at times.

The art was amazing. very fitting for the anime. Character designs worked well because it was very lighthearted ...

Mixed Feelings
There are two types of anime I consider a “5”: those with an equal force of determinants and merits, and those that follow a formulaic and mediocre narrative used quite often. The difference is that shows described by the former are usually on the negative side, whereas shows described by the latter can still be a good watch; Konobi is the latter.

Produced by studio feel (who’ve brought the likes of OreGairu and Kiss x Sis) comes “This Art Club has a Problem!”, a hilarious, lighthearted rom-com with emphasis on “com”; Seriously, this show is funny. Definitely one of the greatest strengths of this show is ...
Jul 10, 2017
As many reviews have already highlighted the good parts of this show, which are very few. I am going to tell you about the many bad things about this show and how i believe that this show doesn't deserve anything beyond a 5 overall.


This show has absolutely no plot progression to speak of, it has the essence of a comedy skit anime but it tries to have the story line of a linear romcom. The show fumbles over how to progress with Subaru's artistic ability by showing him entering one art competition, and that's it. There isn't really anything else to say about ...
