Hanako, an athletically proficient, yet thick-headed student with a weird fashion sense, plays a game with the American transfer student Olivia. However, their vigor irritated their classmate Kasuki who dislikes playing games since she has always been teased by her sister for being bad at them. With a turn of events, it was found out that Hanako is terrible at English. Thus, she asked her foreign classmate Olivia to help her, but Olivia, who is only born and raised in Japan with foreign parents, can't actually speak English at all! Watch over these three girls' surreal school-life comedy.

When you enter this show and see its characters, going in with the moe aesthetics and the oh-so-sweet OP, that within the first 3 minutes, don't be once fooled that it's the normal CGDCT troupe AND certainly will take you aback by a big shot once you get to know what this show's about, it is certainly more than just that alone. Based on the manga of the same name, Asobi Asobase easily takes my crown of obscene and wacky comedy that we have this season following last season's Hinamatsuri, that rivals Grand Blue in the same genre category.

I like to think of this show as PopTeam Epic but good.

I honestly find this funny with very little in the way of complaints.

I honestly adore Olivia's design. I like her personality and that character model. Even the voice actor fits so well. I also like that she isn't dumb like you see a lot with her characters. I'd love to see her more in other shows or even characters like her. For some reason, I kind of feel disappointed that she doesn't know any English or has ever been to America. I do want to see her mother and what she's like. read more

Surrealistic slice of life comedy series centering around high school girls who act and play like children. When I heard what this series is about, I expected 2 pure 4 this world type of comedy that relies on the imagination of a child. What a blessing, I thought. I could have been more wrong, but not by much.

The actual surrealistic side of this anime is entirely limited to the facial expressions of our characters. These vary from goofy cartoon physics to coaxedintoasnafu-tier memes that are about exactly as accurate and fresh as the third season of Rick and Morty. Only thing missing are surprise dickbutts read more

Here an advice, do NOT let the opening song deceive you.

Asobi Asobase is unique comedy anime, think of it like Daily Life of High school Boys anime but with three the main characters as females.
This anime boosted up the comedy based on passing by time or to be detail the killing time to do something and maximize it to the best... or worst result.

The voice acting in this anime is superb even though not from top name VAs.
And finally the very best part of this anime, the ending song. You just have to love it.
And one more thing stay put after ending song, there's a read more
