During recess, Olivia, a foreign transfer student who doesn't know English, plays a game of "look-the-other-way" with Hanako Honda, a loud-mouthed airhead. Their rowdy behavior spurs the ire of Kasumi Nomura, a deadpan loner constantly teased by her older sister for her tendency to lose games. Not willing to compete, Kasumi declines Olivia's offer to join the fun, but eventually gets involved anyway and dispenses her own brand of mischief. Soon, a strange friendship blossoms between the peculiar trio, and they decide to form the "Pastime Club," where they are free to resume their daily hijinks.

Whether it be failing to learn English, trying desperately to become popular, or getting caught by teachers at the wrong time, school life will never be boring when the girls of Asobi Asobase are up to their hilarious antics.

Asobi Asobase is an anime mostly known for it's 'peak comedy'
Including characters that do pretty stupid mistakes, have kinda hilarious goals and the whole "cute girls doing cute things" kind of trope.. except you get face reactions that low-key look like the type of face you would make after stubbing your toe..

as you are aware of.. It's popular comedic effect is not for everyone. there a jokes that could be seen as "cringe" to some viewers, now before I beef with y'all.. im going to admit that may be true but I want you all to remember that there are a lot of ...

Reviews if you don't have time.

When it comes to slice of life comedy there are shows that one can’t miss, and “Asobi Asobase” is one of them. This small comedy of 12 episodes is a manga adaptation with studio Lerche at the front of the animation, and for a relatively recent show, it had to meet some high expectations.

Animation is something really important when it comes to comedy because for some scenes or dialogues to be funny, the situations and moments surrounding it must be appropriately done and set ...

The dust has settled, new comedy animes have been released, rankings of comedy animes have been updated, and it's 2022 now. To compare this to Grand Blue as of now is a wet spit to all top-tier comedy animes. Out of all comedy anime that I have seen, this one would have to be the unfunniest as I was STRAIGHT-FACED through all 12 episodes.

Story 3/10

Even though it's a Slice of Life Anime, the events in the story were more boring than usual since the comedy only made it worse than what it already was. Just involves a lot of screaming and random unfunny faces.

Character 4/10
