As the head of her middle school's science club, it's only fitting that Ueno is also a brilliant inventor. With devices that can convert any liquid into drinkable water, deodorize the most foul smells, or even generate dark matter to be used as a means of concealment, it seems like nothing is beyond Ueno's capabilities. However, she doesn't invent these devices for the advancement of mankind. Rather, the one force that motivates her is love, the only phenomenon she can't quite figure out.

Ueno is head over heels for Tanaka, her nonchalant fellow club member. Yet, because she is too nervous to confess her love and he is too oblivious to notice her affection, her love life is completely stagnant. In Ueno's mind, if she could just expose him to perverted situations, then surely he'd get flustered and fall for her, right? Assisted by her stone-faced classmate and dedicated wingwoman Yamashita, Ueno employs her many inventions on Tanaka in a lewd manner in hopes that he may one day understand how she feels.

tl;dr: A series of short comedy skits that have decent humor but are somewhat repetitive and have no substance beyond that.

This anime is composed of short skits all of which are solely focused on comedy. Each episode is about half length, nine and half minutes if you take out the OP and ED, but each of those episodes is also split into two so each of the skits if four to six minutes. These skits are centered around a middle school science club led by a tsundere girl named Ueno who’s trying to get fellow club member Tanaka to fall in love with her through ...

Opinion & Informal

Art: 7/10
The art was pretty good. I thought that the overall quality was clean. The proportions and anatomy checked out too. The environments (mostly the science room) looked good. No nature showcases or panoramics. Impact shots looked fine. Facial expressions were way too cute. Supporting details and extras also looked good and were nice additions that the manga didn't have.
Overall, the art quality was pretty good and there wasn't too much for me to complain about. The art was adapted well from the manga.

Animation: 7/10
Animation was pretty nice too. General motions looked fluid. Gestures and natural movements ...

Ueno-san wa Bukiyou was a show that piqued my interest whilst browsing through the seasonals before they began to air. It seemed like it'd be a decently funny slice of life comedy that I might get a few cheap laughs out of. What did we get? A short, unfunny waste of time. I figured since I have yet to a review a show of shorter episode time length, I'll give this a shot. Without further adieu, here's my review on aforementioned show.

To start off we'll begin with the story, there isn't much here due to the nature of Ueno-san but I'll elaborate so you guys ...
