“Who.. are you?”
“Haven’t you heard? I’m Sakamoto.”

You’d almost wish it started out like this, there’s that perpetual gnawing going on in the obscured depths of your conscience that bugs you for some normality, some profound simplicity in going about an anime you might never have even heard of. This auxiliary introduction to this mysterious, clean-looking man, unfortunately, doesn’t exist.

Why, of course, would there be such a need?
One does not introduce Sakamoto.
One does not simply require the induction of any mainstream preface to unveil such a magnificent being.
It is without question, almost as splendidly visceral as how the gleam in his eyes decimates the wobbly read more

"Every man wants to be like him and women named their vibrators after him"

In a world riddled with cringe humor, Sakamoto Desuga? is here to bless us with an alternative, yet rarely utilized type of comedy;
Suave humor. Known also by it's street name "Swag humor" this sort of comedy depicts the complete opposite of social awkwardness where the main character is the embodiment of social perfection.

The show is completely contrarian in nature. Perfect characters are often frown upon but now and then, someone would find someway to challenge such sentiments. Sakamoto, the complete opposite of a certain popular cringe character named Bean (even with read more

Long before my life on this earth began, my family's lineage has been devoted to studying and teaching the ancient manuscript of Swag: a primordial order committed to deciphering the body's hidden aura, in an attempt to understand what makes some people "Da COOLEST." As per custom, this responsibility is passed on to the next of kin, and in order to uphold this age-old tradition, my long rigorous undertaking of Swag began.
Through the deepest depths of the Amazon rainforest and the scorching heat of the Sahara desert, I traversed the lands in search of answers. Learning the forbidden tapestry of the Maasai tribe, as well read more

Well, this is a different approach of the 3 episodes rule. If you watched the first 3 episodes, whether you liked it or not, you've seen everything the show can offer.

There is no story, no characters, just Sakamoto swagging around, overcomes his opponents effortlessly. It becomes repetitive and boring real quick. There are some minor plot twists in every one or two episodes, when you along the rest of the cast thinks Sakamoto doing something extraordinary, but it turns out, it's just a regular thing, like making noise or hail a taxi. It's creative and funny, at least the first 2 or 3 times, but read more

Sometimes, A show comes along with one Character who can do Everything Right and thus is perfect an all Categories.
That kind of Character is what most ppl Including me Call an "Gary Stu" if the character is a male character or "Mary Sue" if the character is a Female.
These Characters however for me more often Transform into Characters who are so poorly written that they might have been written by a person who only has 5 seconds to Create a character because said person is a bit to lazy al while having no Idea what a Human is.
They are Mostly poorly written because, well They read more

Well, Sakamoto desu ga? doesn’t have an interesting and complex storyline. It has a cool guy named Sakamoto who swags his way through every situation he’s ever faced with.

Characters are made interesting through their complexity, with them coming to deal with their flaws, accept them and improve upon them where they can. That’s what makes an interesting and complex storyline.

In a lot of ways, Sakamoto Desu Ga? is the One Punch Man of school-life anime. One Punch Man is about a hero named Saitama who destroys every enemy he faces with one punch and zero effort.

Sakamoto Desu Ga? is about a kid read more

"And on that day, no fucks were given... only swag".

Make room for our new lord and savior... Sakamoto. Despite how much I enjoyed Sakamoto desu ga? I can fully understand this anime is not for everyone. However, I love comedy shows that don't take themselves seriously. Sakamoto took a similar approach to Nichijou in the fact that it didn't give a shit. It wasn't trying to cater towards a specific category of viewer and stuck to its repetitive yet effective style of humor, with its over exaggeration of daily, normal events. In doing so, it became the unsung hero of the season for me, and read more

This is truly a horrible anime. This thing barely worked in manga format because you could read it quickly(and even THEN you tired after 5 chapters when the novelty wore off because it was just a repeat thing with no jokes or anything every damn chapter, while the latter half was barely worth reading despite only having a few chapters over 20), but when it's endlessly dragged out in anime format and no new parts or innovations which adds to the experience? Yeah, you have a dreadful or even pathetic piece of crap that you just shouldn't waste your time watching.

This anime has pathetic characters, read more

This anime... just wow. My friends seemed to like it, but I honestly struggled to get through the whole series. It starts off well enough, we meet Sakamoto, the impossibly perfect high school boy, able to do any task with efficiency and grace, no matter how outrageous said task is. But then that's it. That's the anime. Here is some cool, infallible guy WHO DOESN'T CHANGE EVER.
If Sakamoto had maybe developed in some way - i.e. become more human, hell had turned out not to be a human - I might have liked this anime. But I can't. I can't sit through so many episodes read more

Sakamoto is the superior being. An evolution of the human being. He is many breeds apart from you. He is a gentleman, he is on god-level.
Someday, you'll meet Sakamoto, asking: "Who are you?"
Then, Sakamoto will calmly say: "Haven't you heard? I'm Sakamoto."

This is an incredibly funny comedy anime! I cried of laughter while watching this masterpiece of an anime.

I will now describe Sakamoto in a few words: Handsome, sublime, god, lord&savior, sublime and perfect.

Though, this anime is mostly fooling around. It's a great anime for everyone, any time. I highly recommend you watch this. It's a must-watch.

Sakamoto is calm read more

If I asked you what came to mind when I mentioned the words "cool," or perhaps "suave," what would your answer be? For the students at Gakubun Prefectural High School the answer would most definitely be "Sakamoto."

"Sakamoto desu ga?" is an anime which focuses around our main character Sakamoto. The niche of this anime is that Sakamoto is the coolest guy around; always figuring out the best answer to any given situation. Now, the plot of this show may not seem extraordinary, nor do I proclaim it to be; but the show manages to grasp your attention with it's own unique style. This show read more

Who exactly is... Sakamoto-kun?

Sakamoto is... Cool

Sakamoto is... Our destined leader

Sakamoto is... The embodiment of perfection

Everything Sakamoto does...

Story: 10

So, exactly what kind of world does our hero live in? He lives in a world of style, cool, and swag. Every movement he does is bleeding cool. Sakamoto does not live in a world... The world IS Sakamoto. Sakamoto makes our lives have so much more meaning. Sakamoto helps us through tears and sorrow.
Sakamoto-kun does not fear the trials and tribulations ahead.
Rather, they fear him.
Sakamoto inspires in all of us a desire to better a situation, no matter how tough.
Sakamoto-kun is the story.
Sakamoto-kun is read more

People always said that “Perfection is not always easy to achieve”

Really!!!! Let me tell you about “The Legend of Sakamoto”

Along time ago, in class 1-2 of Gakubun Perfectual High School. One student had the entire school’s attention from the very first day. Carrying out class duties in STYLE, eating his lunch in STYLE, standing in the hall in STYLE, studying in STYLE, walking in STYLE, talking in STYLE, and even singing in SYLE. Every single move he makes is COOL! COOLER! COOLEST! And the name of the student is Sakamoto. There was nobody is PERFECT being except Sakamoto. Nobody can defeat him. In fact, read more

Sakamoto Desu Ga is a gem that shines brilliantly in the Spring 2016 season. Its an amazing comedy that is definetly worth investing your time in. While I wasnt expecting much from this show Its become my favorite series of all time and one I highly reccomend

STORY: Sakamoto is the coolest kid at school who can do everything in the most stylish way possible. While the series follows Sakamoto but its really the story of how he helps everyone grow around him. Sakamoto Desu Ga is episodic and follows the narrative of hilarious short stories of everyone's interactions with Sakamoto. Wether his classmates are trying read more

This review is for Sakamoto desu ga. When referring to this anime, I will not be using the question mark at the end because it messes with punctuation and makes it complicated. This is my first anime review because I'm sure that I can give an accurate and objective perspective of what this anime is and isn't. As such, I want people to decide for themselves whether or not they enjoy Sakamoto desu ga. The purpose of this review is just to spell out what Sakamoto desu ga entails so that people who are watching and people who are interested in watching will know what read more

Sakamoto desu ga? was an anime that I was excited for, I saw some clips around the web and thought that the anime would be absolutely hilarious. Saw the first episode, I was like eh it's alright, it's just the first episode it should get better. Second episode, in terms of comedy just like the first, one scene that I thought was funny. So then I forced to watch episodes 3 to 5 in hopes that it would get better. It just didn't happen, sure there were a few funny scenes but then as each episode went by the anime just started to get more read more

What happens when you take a high school setting and add perfection itself, only second to God? Haven’t you heard? Sakamoto happens.

This short but sweet comedy anime focuses on one gimmick only. Sakamoto being absolutely perfect in every situation, and his interactions with his classmates. It may seem like after some time, the anime loses its charm as the plot keeps on repeating, but fear not. The 12 episode limit keeps the pace steady. The story never gets boring or stale. Good soundtrack which incorporates jazz (obviously) keeps the anime smooth. The comedy is going to have you question “how does Sakamoto get out read more

I made a video: you can find it at my YouTube channel "BasementOtaku"

Video Script:
Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto (9/10): Woh! A 9 out of 10?! If you want to know more about my rating system check the video description. Now it is time to fumble over my words as I begin a potentially spoiler filled review.

Words can very easily describe “Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto,” but the experience is something else entirely. The show has a fairly basic premise, attractive high schooler acts cool and people are jealous of him, and from watching Handa-kun this season I have learned that, that premise, while funny, read more

Cool, Cooler, COOLEST!!!...and not just for Sakamoto, Studio DEEN as well.

Well, LA will say it already, LA thinks Studio DEEN is two for twofer in terms of comedy anime (previous being KonoSuba).

LA was worried as to Sakamoto's skits of always "winning" and it getting old and by the numbers, however and by in fact really quickly, LA found that the "ways" Sakamoto leads to his victory or him pleasing the masses and sometimes outright crazily amusing ways that the comedy doesn't get stale, it's the entire "it's the journey not the destination" scenario and Sakamoto executed it brilliantly.

Characterization, well if you cannot believe it, not read more
