The setting is always set in a elementary school. In that school a classroom is run by a unintelligable teacher who isn't human. That classroom is where you will be witnessing the carefree life of Pascal-sensei.
In the first episode you get a glimpse of the young elementary students, not to forget the animation that shows the students young and innocent side. It really is interesting seeing such a colourful and cute design for the kids. The animation is childish and likable. It's easy to adapt to and shows no problems to point out at.
Throughout the episode there may be changes of scenes entirely, it might
look like the episode has finished but it actually just changes to something else different from what was previously displayed.
The opening is fine, nevertheless the ending is not good at all. The ending is not animated and features real people dancing. I tend to skip it. The music in the episodes are fine but nothing to get worked up over.
The comedy is usually finely balanced, although at times it can get overboard. It's possible that you will get a good laugh from it but the laugh for us and for younger people are most likely different. The comedy isn't bad, yet there is room for improvement.
The characters are very interesting, from the elementary schoolers to the teacher. The personalities of each character is unique. Pascal-sensei for example has a innocent yet carefree personality that makes him stand out and this is how we all see him. A newly introduced character had a self-centered personality, still he had his good sides and the moment where he looked like he mistook Pascal sensei.
Thats it for now, I will update this through out my watch. At the moment this is not so good but I will improve it.
Pascal-sensei is a series that I picked up on a whim, kept thinking I would watch one more and then drop, but then never did. I'm still here 8 episodes in and will probably stick it out. What happened?
Basically, this is a comedy sketch show with a bottom-of-the-barrel premise: new teacher Pascal is weird and not smart, yet surprisingly capable. Over-the-top school hijinx ensue. The character designs are tedious, the OP does a good job of irritating me, and there's minimal continuity leading to a lot of forgettable one-off jokes. So the expectations are low. But then it usually over-delivers in its execution with a
great twist ending, so I'm left thinking, "Well, that was actually pretty good. Guess I'll watch the next one."
I can't recommend this show to everyone, but it might work for you if you like your humor silly and guns-blazing.
I have yet to finish this anime, but seeing as I am about to start episode 16, and there is no real story behind this anime, I feel that I have reached a point where I am able to adequately review it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to DNF this series. With the episodes only being about 14 minutes each, I'll breeze through the last half. I overall give this anime a 6/10. Here's why.
As I mentioned above, there is no real story to this anime. It is just a bunch of shorts put into the episodes, where only the middle section
of this anime actually follows a real story line (and that's giving it too much credit,) This anime is about a teacher, Pascal-sensei, who teaches elementary school and usually takes things either to the extreme, or extremely too literally. It gives you a couple laughs here and there, and some of the situation this teacher gets the students into are strange to say the least. If you're looking for a good laugh, nothing serious by any means, this is a go to anime, however, if the anime you stray towards are the action packed, romantic, serious anime, this definitely isn't for you. I should also note that there are references to other tv shows and anime that are pretty funny.
The art isn't the "typical" anime art style, it's more like a cartoon, and that definitely fits this anime. It seems to be targeting a younger audience, so I feel that the art fits in that situation. It's not great, but it wasn't aiming for that. For that reason, I'm not judging the art too harshly.
The opening to this anime is pretty annoying, I'm not going to lie, and honestly, the ending is just weird/creepy. For example, the one time I listened to the ending fully, there was a line that said "When did you stop wetting the bed, I stopped yesterday," This brings me back to the statement I made earlier, when I said that this anime is targeting a younger audience. Jokes like that are sure to make children laugh, but being an adult, I tend to skip both of the songs.
Edit: From episode 19 and up, there is a different ending song, which is significantly better than the original ending song, causing me to raise my rating on the sound from a two to a four. This new song is like a rap/rock mix, and I did listen to this while not watching the anime. (Though, on YouTube, it definitely sounds better when put on the 1.25 speed rather than the regular speed of 1)
There is about seven or eight main characters that appear in every episode, and a couple side characters that come around every two to three episodes. Of these characters, there is no real character growth. There is literally a character that repeats the same phrase every episode for comedic relief. Don't get me wrong though, the characters aren't by any means bad characters. They all have unique personalities, and seeing how these characters interact with each other can be humorous.
I didn't hate this anime. It did make me laugh here and there, and I even recorded certain scenes to send to my friends because they were just that bizarre and meme-worthy. It was a very light-hearted, innocent anime that I enjoyed watching, it was like an escape from the typical action packed, fight every episode, type of anime.
