The school love story is set at Baramon High School, a private boys' school for the prefecture's most elite. The protagonist is a seventeen year old boy who transfers into the school and meets various major players on campus, such as the outlaw teacher, the soccer captain, and a childhood friend whom the protagonist has not seen for seven years. The school presents opportunities for friendship, love and conflict, and changes are now bound to happen in the main character's life.
This anime is the ultimate meme of the season, basically a masterpiece.
Story - Kid transfers to school and everyone likes him. He has his own harem of pointy chin dudes. A++ story, basically every harem ever.
Art - Mm... yes baby, pointy chins are very very beautiful. Rock those pointy chins and stab someone with them maybe. That art deserves a 10/10. It's amazing. I could never draw like that, and it's one of my many factors that contribute to me laughing so hard about this Annie May ( Ha, get it? Annie May. ). Humans totally move like that in real life and
we're all creatures who move in slow motion.
Sound - Finally at the moo-sick. From what I can tell in every episode, this is an Annie May about handsome men and there's no other song that describes that better than the opening or ending song. You can't watch this anime without handsome men with pointy ling long chins.
Character - 10/10 All the characters are cliche and stereotypes of any BL or harem characters are spot on to a point where I couldn't stop laughing.
Enjoyment - 10/10
From what you can tell, I definitely enjoyed looking at the handsome men. Pointy chins are life.
Overall - 10/10 Masterpiece, highly recommended for otome fans and those who love harems and yowie-owie ( whoops, I meant yaoi ). Really well done for a parody.
I watched this at 1am and actually cried laughing. The art is terrible, the story is terrible, the characters make no sense, and I love it. This is the best parody of those generic school yaoi/BL dramas that could ever be conceived. Everyone looks like they were drawn by a not-artistically-gifted 6th grader that just got into anime. The main character has no eyes and his 7 year old sister remembers playing with one of the MCs friends from 7 years ago. They blow up like 3 buildings. A guy dies and comes back to life. In
the ending song the characters distort into oblivion in time to the music. I felt like I was suffering some kind of trauma-induced shock while watching it.
TLDR: Gakuen Handsome needs to be put in the art museum where it belongs.
To be clear: this is yaoi SATIRE. Unless you've been a weeb since the days of newgrounds, you're not going to get this.
Imagine every thirteen year old's deviant art account when they started watching anime. That is the art of this show. And it was intended. The pointy chins, the yaoi hands- all intended. Literally every possible thing is wrong with the art, shading, proportions, perspective, everything. The characters are exaggerated versions of BL art style and the main character has no face which makes it fairly quirky
Pretty good actually. Goes to show that the animators actually do know what they're doing. And
that (again) the horrible art is intended.
Every trope and stereotype exists in this show. Every line is either super rapey or absolutely stock. It's a perfect parody.
As someone who grew up on anime, this show brought me into a nostalgic state of when I started started trying to create my own images on MS paint. I laughed to the point of tears while watching this show. I've read quite a few cringeworthy BL manga and I can say that this short animation portrays all the faults you can find there with the perfect satirical touch.
The type of viewers who will like enjoy this definitely had unironically enjoyed a doujin or something that was probably not much better than this.
Don't listen to any other review as this is the ultimate review. this anime showed me the true meaning to being gay and every day i wake up and thank god himself for blessing us with this anime. The animation is fantastic and nothing can top it, Yuri on ice who? clearly Gakuen Handsome is the superior gay anime.
I want to smooch all of these men, the main character is lovable, and the love interests are what make this story what it is. They all have their amazing traits and they surprise you every episode.
the sound track is so amazing and beautiful that
no one can ever top it. You thought attack on titan, angel beats, and pokemon has memorable themes, you haven't heard anything yet. I listen to this sound track on repeat when i make love to my sweet sweet gakuen handsome body pillow. i suggest you do the same.
The only flaw with this anime is that it has ruined any and all other anime for me and it ruined my ability to talk to other men as it has given me the most unreal expectation and lust for the perfect man.
