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.

This Art Club has a problem is a fairly basic, lighthearted romcom, but it was nevertheless fun to watch!

Story- 5/10
The story is definitely where this anime falls short. There is some plot progression here and there, but overall the pacing is VERY slow.

Characters- 8/10
Most the characters in this story are quite funny and cute, which is perfect for a lighthearted SOL romcom like this.

Art- 7/10
The art and animation is nothing spectacular, but it isn’t too basic also.

3/10, would be a 7/10 but ill explain why.

So, this is my first review, but I have been getting better at doing them from a separate media. I hope its not too long and I can cover all the bases needed for this show.

"This Art Club Has a Problem!" or as weebish speak would say "Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru!" Is a small romantic slice of life that takes place in... middle school.... and has the mcs of the show doing aaart!

Is a small slice of life of interpersonal relationships, dont expect huge things.

We got the classic run down:

I would've given this a 7 or 6 but the fact that the sexual jokes are between teens that look 12 years old is disgusting to me, imagine if someone comes to my room while I am watching an ecchi anime of 12 years old... Plus some side characters like Collette that looks 12 and acts like an 8 years old...
This is so freaking stupid, these people just had to make some characters older and they would've had a good anime!
Simple anime, simple execution and still failed by making fkn underage ecchi students... What a wasted potential Jesus Christ...
I guess if you are 12 you ...
