Synopsis

Kurogu had a love of kabuki theater instilled in him from a very young age thanks to his grandfather. Now, as a high school student, he desires to create his own kabuki club in order to bring an appreciation of kabuki to a wider audience. He'll find, though, that with the weight of hundreds of years of strict tradition, it's not so easy to get high schoolers interested. A rough start is not enough to deter Kurogu, and he’ll work hard to inspire in others the same burning passion he feels, until the day he can put on his own performance!

This was one of those series which caught my eye when I was checking out the PVs for Spring a couple of months back. Right now, I can safely say that it has hardly disappointed me and even exceeded my expectations.

Kabukibu is a story focusing on a youngster, Kurogo, who is incredibly passionate about kabuki (classical Japanese dance-drama), as he aims to gather people to form a kabuki club, hence the title of the show. The plot is not in any way unique; it's probably not the first time you will have heard of an anime where some guy decides to form a club read more

Preliminary
At first it looks fine and slightly interesting, but after episode 1 it starts to get boring. Since the series revolves around Kabuki, we all or at least some of us know it's a classic style of Japanese dance-drama crap that is shi... can be boring. The mc tries to make a Kabuki Club at school but this character is annoying AF sometimes. He basically shouts out these Kabuki lines in public... the anime is based on this weird shouts with make-up... sorry this is just my emotions. Anyway it's not the studio fault, it's just the plot. There might be people out there read more

You know, if this show had aired ten years ago, it probably would've seemed a lot cooler to people.


Story: 6/10

It's the most trite, overused, cliche plot: a high school student is passionate about ___. They want to start a club. They need members for the club and eventually persuade four people to join. They all become close friends and have fun. The end. Kabukibu does nothing particularly special or unique to pull the viewer in; the plot follows the exact same formula that all of its similar predecessors have used.

You'd expect the kabuki theater setting to make it a bit read more
