Synopsis

The project's premise follows Kouta Hasegawa, a high school boy that loves the yellow Pom Pom Purin dog. By mere coincidence, he ends up attending the same school as Yuu Mizuno, a boy who likes the bunny My Melody. Yuu tells Kouta that there's nothing to be ashamed of for liking Sanrio's cute characters. Together, Kouta, Yuu, Shunsuke Yoshino, Ryou Nishimiya, and Seiichirou Minamoto learn to accept their love of the characters instead of feeling embarrassed.

Sanrio Danshi is something that at times can touch closely to my heart. I have a lot of experience with liking something that doesn't fit with what society expects of them. Sanrio Danshi uses this as the principal conflict that drives many of the early episodes. And personally, I think it nails it. There are struggles that the characters go through that reminds me of my own experience. One of the tough issues with being different from society's expectations is dealing with that difference, a lot of times one will hide it because of the pushback they received. Sanrio Danshi is adept at being able read more

Sanrio Danshi is a pretty relaxing show with some conflict that each character eventually goes through. There is a lot of promoting of Sanrio merch and Puroland, but that's expected from an anime about Sanrio. Despite that, it had a nice message throughout the series: liking things that other people might think is not acceptable for your age is ok. I find that kind of relatable myself when I know people who think anime is for kids only, but fortunately I've found friends my age or older who appreciate anime. All the characters were quite different but they all loved a different Sanrio read more

This is like a very long but cute informercial for Sanrio. That said, I appreciated the character development and wanting more. The premise is simple and direct and alot of teenagers, boys and girls can relate to - the importance of friendships. I like that they weave in the Sanrio characters into the story line, and there are tons of cute moments. I'm not a My Melody fan, but I LOVE Yuu. Artwork is done well, I can appreciate the experience. Would love to see more of it, especially at the very end they introduced 2 more characters that read more

TL;DR: This is a decent anime about 5 boys sharing a similar interest in Sanrio products (such as Hello Kitty, Purin Dog, My Melody, and etc) and their personal issues around liking a non-masculine/feminine subject. If you like something cute and average, you'll like this.

Even though it isn't bringing much to the table animation wise, the overall arc of all the main boys is very well done and relatable on a personal level, especially liking things and being bullied for it by family or society in general.

Heartwarming scenes aside, the anime doesn't stand out alot. Really should've had it's own style since it was read more
