I don't understand the hype for this one.

Bunny Girl Senpai is full of the same issues commonly criticized in most light novel adaptations, so why does it get a free pass? Harem tropes, waifu bait, incest teasing, thin characterization, vague pseudoscience, and an asshole deadpan protagonist who solves a bunch of girls’ problems for them. Most of all, the art and sound are incredibly mediocre excluding the many moments when CloverWorks chooses to bend over and spray shit in our eyes with its abundance of hideous CGI crowds.

First and foremost, I hate the writing in Bunny Girl Senpai. Consider the '4' points I rated the read more

Raskal Does Not Dream of Copyright Infringement

There is going to be a lot of mentions of Monogatari series in the review, because you need to understand that this series is not just similar, or inspired, or derivative. No - it’s an unbelievably blatant plagiarism, it steals everything from Monogatari, and I mean EVERYTHING, except for a couple of elements stolen from Oregairu and Haruhi instead. Comparing it to the famous cases of literary plagiarism ruled by court (Like Harry Potter’s rip-off called Tanya Grotter), it would 100% be ruled a copyright infringement if Nisio Isin/Kodansha ever bothered read more

‘I live life everyday hoping that I’m a slightly kinder person than I was the day before’ - Makinohara Shoko

If you thought this show was about literal BUNNY GIRLS, boi should you be prepared to be bamboozled by the most misleading title that you mightve ever come across. I was watching the first few minutes of the first episode expecting something probably as ecchi as it seems on the cover art, but hot damn did I got hooked by the quirky characters, mainly the interactions between our main protagonists. This show within the first episode reminded me of Bakemonogatari, which till this date I read more

I am sure that several spectators started to watch the show after seeing the cover art and the Bunny Girl title. However, you aren’t going to watch a girl wearing a bunny outfit all the time … sorry to disappoint. Also, the audience can relate the anime with Bakemonogatari, Sakurada Reset to name some and the similarity between the main characters' behavior, the mystery in the plot, and the supernatural events.

On the other hand, as a positive aspect about the series, we have the characters chemistry and an entertaining plot. The story is interesting and mysterious, it could be a bit confusing for some, but read more

Bunny Girl Senpai is an anime about this famous child actress who turns invisible, a main character dude who doesn't give a fuck about anything, and his little sister who was verbally assaulted to a point that she started bleeding blood and became a shut-in. All of this happens because of some magic disease called a puberty syndrome.

The events include our main bro being some sort of women-helping Jesus except if the women are bothering him in which case he roasts them by claiming they are on their periods or otherwise strips in front of them to make them awkward blushy blush, because apparently, he read more

Story: 7/10

The story of Seishun Buta is relatively simple, there is a supernatural phenomenon that happen and that its origin is unknown. This phenomenon is known as ''puberty syndrome'', the protagonist's little sister has been a victim of this phenomenon in the past. The anime begins with Sakuta meeting Sakurajima Mai, who is also being the victim of this phenomenon, from there the protagonist decides to help her.

Sound: 8/10

The opening and ending are very good, when they starts you get so excited. The soundtrack also is good, although it is not perfect, but it is enough to cause impact during drama scenes.

Characters: 10/10

"Never judge a book by its cover." - Some random person.

This Fall 2018 anime season, there are a lot of shows to watch on. Honestly, on my opinion, I enjoy this season pretty much more than any other seasons this year. From Goblin Slayer giving us memes and war, SAO back at it again with another season of Kirito OP-ness, to Jojos returning to TV screen with its title "Golden Wind", Fall season this year is definitely a must-see season.
Let us not forget the romance or drama genre of anime which are plenty this season as well. One of them, giving us audience a pretty read more

TLDR: A really good Romance/Mystery anime with a lot of potential. Definitely a must watch this season.

Although I have seen similar stories in anime but so far the execution is pretty good and Far Better than MOST anime. It is a Mystery surrounding "Adolescence Syndrome" where different characters face supernatural phenomena while going through adolescence and how it affects the main couple.
The show has built a lot of intrigue this far.

The 2 mains are compelling. The main guy is an outcast with a mysterious past. He cares about people but can give someone a verbal bitch slap if needed. He is kind read more

This review contains some light spoilers.

Oftentimes the word “pretentious” is thrown around to criticize shows with complex plots or extravagant visuals with the assumption that calling the anime “pretentious” with no explanation of how that detracts from the quality of the show is a valid criticism in and of itself. However, in the case of “Bunny Girl,” Kamoshida’s pretensions are detrimental to the quality of the writing to the point that the incredibly simple ideas presented in this show become unnecessarily difficult to understand solely so Kamoshida can stroke his ego.

The first arc of Bunny Girl is dedicated to Mai Sakurajima’s case of adolescence syndrome. read more

What do I think about Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai? It’s an amazing show. That’s the simple way to say it but the complicated way is explaining it from my perspective. To be fair, I think this anime gets judged based on a lot of facts before it even aired. Like for instance, the brainchild behind the light novels is the same person that made Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo. (The Pet girl of Sakurasou) Anyone who has seen that anime may think what to expect from this show. But I think a bit differently. Hajime Kamoshida helmed the read more

“I’ve seen enough Pornhub videos to know how this series is going to end.” — Krunchyman

This series truly speaks to me as a fellow “puberty syndrome” sufferer, as I use to “baste my ham” five times a day on a regular basis, and let me tell you something folks: rug-burn is an inconvenient truth. But enough about my own troubles, because this anime is troubling enough in its own right.

First of all, allow me to propose a theory that I kicked around in my head since viewing the first episode. The Bunny Girl Senpai, otherwise known as Mai, is simply a figment of read more

This is my first and probably last review on MAL. I think there are a couple of things to say about this anime which are not said yet. I don't want to go to much into detail so it would be better you have watched the anime before reading this.

This anime is a fanservice trash anime that pretends to be not trashy nor fanservice and attracts all people who love trash and let them believe they have found a superior good and deep anime which is at the bottom of it's heart as stupid as SAO or any other harem ecchi anime out there.

The challenges we face during our adolescence may be irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, though their magnitude in the moment can feel overwhelming. It's no surprise then that media which intensifies these issues through supernatural phenomenon would be popular, since teenage audiences feel as if the weight of their problems is understood. However, does this media actually help its audience to overcome their problems, or is it merely wish fulfillment to escape from them? Seishun Buta Yarou may have something compelling to say about the adolescent experience, but it's unfortunately buried under layers of tropes and cliches.

But of all the elements of the read more

Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai/Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is a light novel adaption. And like many light novel adaptations, it's a rather uninspired attempt to sell more copies of the source. And it's possibly as bad as Cloverworks last badly made project Persona 5 The Animation. The Opening is objectively the worst Opening I've seen this year, consisting people running, poorly edited out of context pictures of the heroines, horribly blended in CGI, lifeless backgrounds. Which is actually a good indicator for what the show actually is.

A self inset ball of snark has monotone banter read more

Its a bloody long name of a series but lets keep it short, we'll just call it 'Bunny Girl'.

So far the series has given me me a Bakemonogatari throwback too of their first arc quite similar and I would probably recommend if you liked Bakemono, you'll probably like this as well.

The interactions between the 2 main characters are really enjoyable and probably one of the best interactions among most shows. They are not the generic characters you see in most as they are quite interesting and hopefully shouldn't disappoint you at all. As the show go on, you'll find some relatable content and perhaps a read more

The fall 18 anime season was great. Compare to the unfortunate lacklustre Summer 18 anime season it was the season that gave us back to back great titles that I consider anime of the year material such as theses following anime.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime aka the best Isekai anime I have seen in a while.
Golden Kamuy S2 A fantastic continuation to an already great series that has well-written characters and a strong narrative.
Boarding School Juliet: a nice portrayal of Romeo and Juliet in a school setting.
Bloom Into You is the best Yuri I have ever seen since Simoun.

Yeah, the fall 18 read more

The amount of high scoring reviews for this anime blew my mind, so much so that it drove me to writing my first review on this site. While yes, only 3 episodes have aired at the time of me writing this review, my main problems with this show will surely not change since the show would look entirely different if that were to happen. Before I start, warning there might be some slight spoilers for the first 3 episodes.

A lot of people are comparing this anime to Bakemonogatari or the Monogatari series in general and while I can sort of see the comparisons with the read more

“I don't mind if I only had one person, even if the entire world hated me, I could keep living if that person needed me” - Azusagawa Sakuta.

Before trying it, I was not expecting much by just looking at the name, synopsis and the cover art. I was expecting a typical ecchi rom-com harem with cliches and whole lots of fanservice, but as soon as I finished the first episode I knew I was in for a treat.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is extremely interesting and it's just... good. It's refreshing to see an anime with this potential, good story writing read more

“I don't mind if I only had one person. Even if the whole world hated me, I could keep living if that person needed me.” -Sakuta Azusagawa

Incredible. Absolutely frickin' incredible.

There is no doubt at all I enjoyed the heck out of Bunny Girl Senpai. Bunny Girl Senpai has so much to offer, whether it is an interesting story, likeable characters, captivating dialogue, sad moments, or just laughs. It is also really refreshing as it goes against many of your generic high school, romcom anime tropes to create an overall very enjoyable take on the genre as a whole. I am aware that Bunny Girl Senpai read more
