For the average Japanese high school student, walking to school can be a chore, but for first-year Chio Miyamo, it's always an adventure. Constantly running late due to her long night sessions playing video games, she is forced to come up with new routes to make it to Samejima Private Academy on time.

On her many bizarre journeys to school, Chio contends with obstacles like street-blocking detours, overzealous kabaddi players, and befuddled motorcycle gang leaders. But these minor hindrances are no match for the special ops training that Chio, AKA the legendary assassin "Bloody Butterfly," has received from her extensive gaming obsession. Together with her best friends Manana Nonomura and Yuki Hosokawa, Chio will do whatever it takes to avoid her school's harsh penalties for tardiness.

I’ve never really thought too much about the journey to school during my younger days. It’s just wake up, get ready for the day, and hoping for a wonderful day without trouble. What if I told you if there’s someone named Chio Miamo who makes journeys to school like it’s some impractical adventure? What if every weekday became a misadventure that you can’t even began to imagine?

Watching Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro (Chio's School Road) felt like watching an experimental humor flick where the show tests the limits of its comedy. I’m not going to lie, this show is very self-aware of its intentions and is read more

With every anime season, we are introduced to 30+ new anime and sadly most of them never live up to their expectations, but in the past 3 or 4 seasons there was a genre which had almost all those great anime made in those seasons and that's the Slice of life genre.

As a fan of the SOL genre, I always feel sad at the ending of the season because it would mean the end of a great anime that was genuinely entertaining and not cash-grabbing like most of the other anime, there were great anime like: Tsurezure Children, Yuru Camp, Mitsuboshi Colors, the one with read more

Have you ever had an anime studio that disliked so much to a point where you absolutely refuse to check out the other works after witnessing some of the shows that they made? Well, I have a big problem with a Studio Diomedéa who up this is point was the studio that I greatly dislike due to them ditching out a truckload of mediocre to awful series that barely had any soul to speak off.
Beatless was the breaking point for this studio as that show was horrendously written that was filled with awful pacing and cringe-inducing production scheduling where every 4-5 episodes that would be read more

In the severely lacking Summer season, we got a host of comedy-centred anime, and Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro (or Chio's School Road) is one of the series that initially doesn't stand out much, yet for all of its comedic shenanigans and whack-a-mole moments does it hold a candle towards its production runtime and the funny yet insane moments that it has to garner more attention.

This is the series of brainchild Tadataka Kawasaki, whom started his mangaka life out of various doujins, and Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro is pretty much a rounded compliation of his doujin works. This explains why if you haven't heard of him before or read more
