Probably the most underrated anime this season, and definitely not your average harem. Relative to the genre standard, character's have depth and heart. MC is not a loser or neanderthal, and girls are not over-the-top in love with him. Situations manage to be outrageous without being contrived, and funny without relying on cringe. Obviously this show is quite lighthearted and simplistic, but I think here that manages to be a good thing, allowing for a larger emphasis on the characters and their interactions. Sound was fine, though I honestly don't understand why that's a category that seems to carry weight around here in the first
place. I've been enjoying the hell out of this anime and look forward to its weekly release. I would definitely recommend giving this a shot even if harem is not usually your genre.
(first review btw)
Overall, I love this so far. The main reason I love this is that it gives off major Nisekoi vibes, which is like my 4th fav anime. And im sure if you've watched/loved Nisekoi, this is a definite watch. A lil romcom with some harem aspects and a similar art style makes Bokutachi and Nisekoi siblings lmao. I think the pacing is great so far, and all the characters got me yearning for another episode. The opening is also outstanding (in my opinion). Animation quality is also very good, for example, in the opening at 0:45, the way Takemoto swims backwards, twiddling with
her hair really surprised me, it's so fluent and cute. This show has so much potential and I can't wait for what this show has to offer.
With decreasing quality of general animes recently on top of being harem genre which is popular yet to be understimated this anime show promising quality on it's own. It's not spectacular but clearly beyond average. The arts look consistent as far as the episodes goes. The sound is good and the voice acting is surprisingly well matched with the characters albeit the actors isn't that well-known (at least for me). But the most I'm impressed with is how the story is being VERY well directed. It's comes natural and enjoyable without missing beats. It's long in the past for me to remember the story details
on early part of the manga but this doesn't feel like to be rushed at all.I leave the story's judgement to everyone's taste as this is manga adaptation. For me it's just suitable for killing times because the story is kind of light-hearted and without any noticeable development.
So, basically Go-Toubun again? Sounds good to me...
We Can't Study is... well, it's hardly original, we can say that much. Those who followed Winter 2019's Go-Toubun no Hanayome will find the premise eerily familiar - although in truth neither manga is 'ripping off' the other, as they started serialisation at pretty much the same time and the authors are known to be friends. Despite the surface similarities, however, BokuBen takes itself in much more of a lighthearted direction, with the focus on comedy, character gags and unlikely conicidences rather than Go-Toubun's heavy character drama...
...which meant this was always going to have to
do a lot of work to distinguish itself from any of the other gag-driven harem rom-coms out there. Did it succeed? Well, kinda sorta. The show's not doing anything new, and anyone who's ever seen... erm, anything at all before will be able to predict the story beats as they happen. You could almost tick off the story devices on a sheet of harem comedy bingo.
But, despite that, it executes on these well. The characters are familiar - but charming and with a spark of life that endears them to us. The jokes are classic - but they land with superb comic timing, leaving us laughing along rather than at the show. The romance is by-the-numbers - but hey, if it ain't broke don't fix it, right?
So just a basic harem comedy that pulls off the basics well, with nothing to stand out? No, not that either. BokuBen has one massive advantage over its competitors - and I'm not talking about the show's loyal manga fanbase.
The sound design on this show is, quite honestly, incredible. I've never seen - sorry, never heard - anything like it. Once you notice it, it's impossible not to keep on noticing and appreciating how much work has been put in. The soundtrack is part of it, with a dizzying array of background tracks all used to their fullest extent to enhance a mood or cut out to emphasise a point. The voice acting is part of it, with strong performances all round and incredible direction making the most of the VAs' talents.
But it's most noticable in the sound effects, where the attention to detail is like nothing else. When two characters fall into a pool, there's two splashes. When one character is in wooden sandals and the other is in sneakers, we hear both the clop of wood and the squeak of rubber. When someone twists their ankle, there's a crunch that makes you wince in sympathy.
I'd have followed - and liked - this show just based on the strength of its manga, and I'd have been pleasantly surprised with the adaptation based on the visuals and direction. But the sound design has raised BokuBen into my AOTS, and an unexpected delight every Saturday. I'll be keeping a lookout for sound director Motoyama Satoshi's next work - my hat off to him and his team.
Ufotable and KyoAni shows may be a feast for the eyes, but if you want a treat for the ears, give BokuBen a go.
It's Very Entertaining.
This is one of those anime that you watch to lighten up your mood and forget all the bad stuff about your life.
I suggest you give it a try. Despite its harem tag, it's a very enjoyable anime.
This not one of the anime that you watch for the story. Rather it's for the enjoyment. But the story is good. In a good way, it's very much different from other harem anime. It does get annoying with the classing harem tropes but the comedy balanced it really well. All the characters get together and do enjoyable and funny stuff together.
But I felt the pacing
was a bit off. The story gets interesting whenever a new character is introduced. After a few events regarding that character it starts to become very slow. I personally felt there was some confusion as to what new things to do with the new characters.
This anime is very pretty. The character look very neat and the environment is pretty good too. The face animations during comedic scenes are very cute and suits the tone of the story.
The VA is really nice. All the various emotions are conveyed really well. The opening and ending are alright.
This is where this anime shines. The personalities of the characters are somehow refreshing relative to other harems although you can guess each character's personalities from their looks. None of the characters are annoying. They are vary likable and you will mostly end up caring for them.
This was a delight to watch. Very enjoyable. Highly Recommend it.
For a classic RomCom, this anime doesn't do too bad compared to the other competitors in the genre. For me however, nothing really stood out in this anime even though I did somewhat enjoy it.
For a RomCom, the story is there but is quite lackluster in my opinion. And while the story doesn't always have to be the main focus as this is also a slice of life, there are small story arcs scattered throughout the anime which I believe are sometimes poorly done. Nevertheless, the score for story shouldn't really affect much about this anime.
The art was above average compared
to some of the other monstrosities that aired this season **COUGH** Kenja no Mago. It was bright and colourful at the very least and I didn't find the animation to be jarring in many areas for it to be considered an issue.
While the voice acting was done very well, the anime is let down by its unmemorable OSTs. While the music will generally suit the tone of the scene, none of them were powerful in any way and did not "enhance" my experience (if you will). Ain't no Hiroyuki Sawano going on here.
Look, the characters whilst sticking to the RomCom archetypes, were actually done decently. They all generally had depth and I found that all of the characters were generally likeable. No real problems here. Maybe some uninspired personalities but nothing too bad.
Despite what I wrote above, I still found this anime to be quite enjoyable. Its good and helps take your mind off things in life, as any anime of this genre should do. Maybe since I'd read the source material, it might have made me enjoy it a bit more.
The anime overall was actually done quite well, while I would not have given it an 8 (Good anime) it was very close to reaching this standard and just suffered from a few issues above. The lack of story and weak OSTs really hit the rating hard for me. Would still recommend it to people who are interested in RomComs though, you won't be disappointed as long as you don't go in expecting God's work.
One of the greater Harems out there, at first I thought it would be boring seeming as there are using studying and such as their base for the series and the main character being smart, but I'd say if you are a fan of Harems then this is up your alley because it's pretty good to be honest yeah it's a bit cliché but who said being cliché is bad it's only bad when you use it badly but the author of this series is doing a good job with giving his characters such a cute/lovable personalities.
For a new studio that isn't well known
I'd say they handled the animation and art pretty damn good especially the facial expressions they are all so cute that you'd end up screen grabbing most of them I know I did, also the main character is pretty likable my problem with past Harems was mainly the main character I found some of them can be a bit annoying but this guy in this anime just wants to help people out although I do think there is something going on between him and that tan girl but yknow that's just me shipping them together lol also the ecchi moments are there as well not as bold as heavy ecchi series but it's ok. I pretty much enjoyed this anime and this what I mainly look for when I'm rating an anime/series if I enjoy it, if the soundtrack is good, if the animation/art is decent and if the plot is good or interesting and so far this series nailed it for me currently waiting for S2 give this series a go if you want a slice of life ecchi harem with a studying theme for its base oh and the voice actors are so adorable.
This is your typical harem/ light novel route anime that exist so much nowadays.
If thats all you wanted to know then you should stop reading [HERE]
Otherwise if you still are interested you should continue down here
now after that cancerous looking setup, illl get onto the review.
Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai or "We Never Learn" follows the story of the young high school boy Yuiga that comes from a financially troubled family and has too teach 3 girls that excel in certain topics but have a horrifying grade in others so he can get free college funding.
Its pretty much you typical
high school setup without any edginess (thank Þór for that).
The art is bright simple and warms the heart and the show has a pretty satisfying looking CGI blended opening without the song being anything special.
On the topic of sounds its pretty basic all things considered but it felt comfy so ill let it slide vs the sword art online style of sounds.
The characters are all and well and Yuiga the dense mf he is has the options of (In personal preferred order) 1. Kirisu the totally kinky teacher. // 2. Furuhashi The living thesaurus // 3. Ogata the 5318008 math goddess. // 4. Takemoto The Baywatch babe. // 5. And Kominami the medical maid.
Overall i would say that i enjoyed the show and its good as a basic show to watch and it will go pretty well with any sweet cold drink you have.
Okay, I have watched a decent amount of ecchi, harem romcoms but for some reason, this feels special to me. I already felt this way before since I read the manga before the anime aired.
Bokuben, a RomCom with harem and studying, feels familiar right? Though this kind of plot has been used in a couple animes this still has a special place in my heart.
Story 8/10: The plot was pretty interesting. It pretty much circles around the "studying plot" if it's not yet obvious lmao. a poor guy teaches a couple of girls with their weaknesses in studying and starts to like our mc, Nariyuki,
Art 9/10: The colors used here was very nice. It's very bright,cheerful and vibrant . The colors aside, the art here compared to the manga is definitely better and improved. In the manga, Furuhashi's hairstyle was Twintails but here is straight. I wonder why they changed it. All the characters are still very pretty nonetheless.
Sound 9/10: The sounds are something I don't really mind because I'm too focused into the anime but I'll just say what I recall. I'll start first with the amazing OP, Seishun Seminar. The op was very cheerful and lively, and it really fits the anime. Just listening to it will make you want to study. Too bad Kirisu Sensei didn't have a part in the OP. About the ost's, it also fits the situation and really brings out its true magic, it's really nice.
Character 8/10: The characters were pretty okay, it's what you expect from a harem Romcom. The characters portrayed different attitudes and that really makes it fun to watch
Enjoyment 9/10: I definitely enjoyed this ALOT, from the opening until the end. I don't even know why this is rated lower than I expected. If you are wondering if this is worth watching,
Overall 9/10: Out of all positive things I say about this, I still can't count this as a masterpiece anime, though this is really amazing and fun to watch. It's because you can already see a lot of animes that has the same pattern as this so it makes it easy to predict. Don't get me wrong, this is really great and fun to watch. I recommend it to anyone.
Well, I can't remember the last time I found a Romcom that I actually really enjoyed. I usually like romcoms, but this one is one of the better ones imo. And I rarely give 8 or more to seasonal shows.
Now first, the bad stuff, I don't know if the art of the show is for everyone, I really liked it tho and it's consistent during the entire season. The show is pretty safe and it doesn't have anything innovative and it has it's fair share of cliches. The soundtrack is meh. It is a harem, something that not everyone likes, but I have to add
that it avoids most of the commons cliches of this genres. Most of the cliches of this show are around some classic "events" that happens in most SoL or romantic shows.
The plot is a romcom, don't expect more than that.
Now, the good stuff:
Characters and their development, I actually liked all the characters and all of them get screen time. They have a pretty natural progress and they never felt like they were acting out of place. All of them got some backstory to some extend, all of them matured or changed during the season to some extend without loosing their personality and they all have some kind of goal.
The MC actually seems to act like a guy, he also gets development and he matures a bit during the season. That is a huge plus in these kind of shows for me.
The animation is great, everything is fluid during the entire season.
Despite being a harem, we don't get almost none jealousy cliche scene and even those aren't exaggerated as the usual.
Despite being a romcom, the show has the subplot of the girls trying to achive some goal, that is also something that I like that breaks a bit the constant flow of romance and it makes the show more interesting to me.
Overrall, if you like romcoms with a pretty casual story with well developed characters that act in a pretty natural way I think you should give it a show. The show was interesting from the beginning to the end and it actually improved after a couple episodes, something not that common in this kind of genre.
So yeah, if you like anything of what I said I think you should try it.
A good anime!
This isn't a case where a anime is so bad or a offensive thing! This anime is so simple and so inocent, a delicious for see and spend your time!
The art of Bokutachi wa benkyou ga dekinai is a espetacular thing! Serious for me the best feature in this work is the art, in the opening you can see how much beautiful she is! For me in this feature this anime need take a 10!
The music in the opening and in the ending are so fun to and i like so much!
In resume, this anime isn't a wonderful thing but it's a good
anime for you can spend your time, have fun and appreciate a big art!
I was waiting for this since it was announced cause I felt it will be a great anime to watch and I was not wrong.
Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai aka We Never Learn introduce us into a story of two clever girls who want to study a career in which they wouldn't be good at all (the mathematical girl wants a humanities career and the literature one wants an astronomy career). We all know the importance of study something that make us feel complete and strive to get it and these girls are not the exception.
The objective of Yuiga (the main) is help the girls
to get their admission in the university they choose in order to have a recommendation letter for him to get his admission too.
The story itself is very good but I think there are a lot of fanservice, maybe you say it's the common in this kind of animes but it's annoying sometimes.
Art and sound are good as well, I can't demand too much in an anime like this but it was ok if you watch it for the story instead of them.
The characters are good too, specially the girls cause each of them have their own special relation with the main. I think is inevitable to fall in love with someone who knows a lot specially when this person teach you what he/she knows.
It's an enjoyable show, I hope you'll watch it and enjoy it as much as I do.
Every anime season needs a cliche harem right? Well look no further. Seriously there's nothing really unique about this show compare to any other generic high-school harem.
The only thing that usually changes between shows of this genre is the background story and "Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai" is no exception - Take a students that's a little above average in all subjects (but emotionally an airhead) and a bunch of girls who are exceptionally talented in one subject but ridiculously bad in others then just throw them all together and have the girls, have them all fall in love with the guy and stretch it
by having one who's too afraid to confess, one who's not willing to admit to herself that she wants him and another that simply doesn't know it yet herself. Now where did I hear this story before? Maybe more or less every single harem I've ever watched. After the first few episodes even those few background story things (like one of the girls trying to analyze classic Japanese literature as a series of equations) disappear and you get a truly 100% generic harem. Of course, 3 girls is never enough so let's throw in a teacher and an alumni as well so they're not high-school kids to make it "super unique"... not.
Nothing much to say about the art... As moe as virtually any other harem.
Bottom line - If you've never watched a harem before (are there any people who even fall into this category) you may watch this one as well as any other. If you're the type that enjoys the usual harem cliches then go ahead, this one is not better or worse than any other. If however you've already watched a fair share of harems and don't want the same thing all over again then you should probably skip this one because that's exactly what it is.
Starting off, the show was about as predictable as I thought it would be, especially since it begins with a similar premise to 5toubun. The first few episodes felt like a bit of a slog, especially since we've all seen this same sort of thing time and time again in harem/romcom style shows.
That being said, I feel that things really finished off strong. The VOs felt like they really started to get a feel for their characters as the show went on, and that helped to flesh them out and make them much more enjoyable to watch. The last few episodes of the first
cour really left me feeling like there's more to come, so I'm excited to pick this back up in October when the 2nd one airs!
In my opinion Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekini (We never learn Bokuben) was an ok anime. Mainly because it does not add anything new to the harem genre and if anything overuses some key plot lines associated with the harem genre.
First lets start with the plot:
The plot is simple enough one high school student tutoring three girls who are geniuses in their talented subjects however completely fall flat on the career paths they want to pursue.
The plot is good in my opinion as it was something I haven't seen before and I thought this anime would try to add
something new to the worn out harem genre. But I was wrong, this anime added nothing to the existing genre however that does not mean I do not like.
The story's in each episode are generally hit or miss as in when they miss they miss hard! While when the story's do hit they hit hard! Let me explain.
When the story's miss I mean that they end up dragging on and end up leaving me falling asleep on my chair. For example when one of the main characters Fumino goes on a diet and struggles to lose weight. It may seem very simple and thats just it, it was very simple. It was so simple that it it would have been more interesting to just tell someone what happens then to just watch it. The episode felt bland nothing really goes on. Its bad filler in a slice of life harem anime.
The MC is constantly forced into embarrassing and awkward situations to the point where it starts to get old and unfunny.
Throughout this anime the MC goes through some situations so much that it essentially takes a core part of the harem genre and overuses to the point of madness. Every other episode I has this one plot that is just "Hey lets force MC to accidentally get trapped in the girls" Or "Hey lets force MC to get stuffed in a mascot at a female clothing store and make him measure his friends cup size". It eventually gets worn out and by the time they do use a similar situation and it ends up being good, you have a hard time trying to appreciate it because it probably just flew over your head as "another situation MC goes through".
Time for a positive change in this review. The jokes aren't all that bad and end up actually being funny.
Don't get me wrong but not all the jokes are like this. Some just fall flat and end up making you feel awkward but a solid majority don't. The jokes and up being well timed and clever sometimes doing the opposite of jokes that do fall flat and turning awkward situations into normal ones just like that. The jokes do tend to also be clean though not as quotable because they do rely on the situation too much to be used irl.
The characters end up being to bland and are cliches of the harem genre.
The main characters come off as your average harem cliches and thus far haven't had enough character development to make them interesting or unique. Their talented subjects don't get any screen time to show them who they are such as Fumino who is supposedly talented at literature but aside from the first episode we never get to see her actually show off these skills. The same goes for Ogata where she suffers the same problem but not as much. She incorporates math into her speaking so most of the time she would come off as nerdy but this tends to lessen and aside from that we never get to see her actually doing equations or use for anything else. .I get this is a 13 episode anime and you only have so much time to develop the other three characters and the MC so ill give it some slack.
In conclusion this anime wasn't all that bad it was funny but needed more originality from the overused, worn out genre that is harems. I would recommend if you want to take a break from all the serious and long series and just chillax with a 13 episode one.
Highschool love stories have become something of the norm. Not only one of if not the most consumed genre in this medium, but also ar the easiest to relate to, with a large target audience that cherishes the fictional high school experience (We all went to the wrong high school apparently).
That was the most generic intro I could start this up with, but it has less to do with “Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai” (quite a mouthful) or the busy, “We never learn”. Mainly because of how hard it tried to distinguish itself from what we get every season. Long story short, It did pay
- Story (8/10):
At its very core, “We never learn” has one of the most basic stories that goes about a guy unconsciously raising a harem of girls from his high school, only this time around, there were no superpowers involved, no faith of humanity at risk, just a select of concerned passionate students that want to excel at what they do, with a great emphasis of comedy and goof-offs.
Nariyuki, a hard-working student tasked by the principle to tutor a duo of geniuses in his high school on materials that they're respectively bad at. The science genius red-head Ogata that wants to grasp a grip on literature, and the bookworm blue-head Fumino that wants to pursue a career in the scientific field. A short and a tall one, a flat and a garden-of-melons one (you get the idea), and trust me, the contrasts between them are much deeper.
Of course, with time, other girls join in, Takemoto the athletic idol of the high school (Team Takemoto for the win by the way) and a couple of others, of which was the blessing of the season, enter, the almighty TILF, teacher Mafuyu.
It all starts genius and study-centered until the romance and pairings kick off, and oh boy were day never-wreaking (in a good way)
I find it genius how the show aired at the exact universal period of exams probably to relate to as much audience as possible. Aside from the main story that goes about the harem, the nostalgic atmospheric school vibes were too strong, the last time an Anime made me miss being a student was “Ansatsu Kyoushitsu” or “Assassination Classroom”. You get to feel their youth on both naive moments and not.
- Art (8/10):
2019 feels like a weird year for animation. A lot of studios given us the unexpected, there was a lot of disappointment for some as well. But “We never learn” didn't partake in none of those.
Presented with the most generic slice-of-life-y art style that's good enough to keep you watching without complaint. Probably the best thing it had going for it visually was the consistency of the production. No episodes felt visually inferior, what you're used to is what you get, fair and simple.
The character design is just as average as the overall artboard, but the artistic choices are taken to influence said characters are striking, for example, a unique color that identifies every character based on their personality and mood. The proportion of the body is also a clever play on portraying everyone's treats.
I don't like the direction they went with Nariyiki specifically, giving him the dull appearance with the very uninspiring brown aesthetic (talking mainly about the hair and eye color), but maybe that was the catch? He seemed like the center of the story to me, at least give him more of a better highlight.
- Sound (8.5/10):
I really got invested so much into the cast of voice actors and actresses, so much in fact that I can't imagine any other sound when I see the characters' faces.
Takemoto's voice actress Suzushiro Sayumi is a fairly unpopular voice actress compared to most others, with very few roles in her experience, but God, her performance was a blast.
The opening song strikes a vibe of its own, making you feel like pulling off a high school material book and pretend you are preparing for an important exam in a group study at a summery day, it's just so surreal.
The ending theme song was not looking at the same direction as the opening, quite the change with a distinguishable tone and a more energetic pace, really well done too.
- Character (7/10):
I'm not as happy with this one as I would have loved to.
Don't get me wrong, the characters are all unique individuals with their own stories to tell, but at what catch?
If anything, there was a huge lackluster in fleshing out the characters. They all received proper self-defining arcs, next episode, it feels like nothing was achieved.
Most of the character go through such length and bring out a new side and new thesis to tackle, but then it's like, “next”, good o'l switch a roo...
What I'm trying to get to is, it's fine if you had a slow progressive story if you're going to sacrifice that to a more in-depth character arc that leaves its mark in the later episode. Now that I'm thinking about it, the only thing that changes is their level of affection to the main character, which is excusable for this show's case, but what about their dreams they keep bringing out? Their past? Anything, please.
- Enjoyment (9/10):
I really had a blast, as short as I can phrase it.
Probably one of the best Rom-Coms I watched, it did better than “Kaguya-sama love is war” in some aspects, and worst at others, both are great shows.
It's exactly the kind of show that makes me go “I want an OVA asap, or maybe a sequel if you're generous enough”.
I don't think I'll be able to remember every name or every character in this show, but the hilarious moments and quotes shall forever be remembered.
- Overall (8.1/10):
This is a really easy show to get into, definitely a binge-watch material, even though I only experienced it on a weekly fashion.
If you're looking for a Rom-Com, you can start right off the bat and with no regrets, a lot of hilarious moments in the waiting, glorious misunderstood setups and likeable characters.
The main character doesn't make you spit slurs up every second, it feels like a chill series you'd want to watch after a long day of work in order to relax. Nothing beats the good old days of high school.
First of all after watching more than 750 anime with their sequels i consider myself as an anime lover, and my best genre is romance, and i am not from the type to be satisfied easily, i won't give any spoilers or talk about the plot or the story to not ruin it for anyone who sees the review, from the rating i expected another dull romance comedy with school themed but i was surprised really it was enjoyable from the start to the ending with a lot of funny moments even that i don't 100% understand the Japanese humor since i am not Japanese
but i really enjoyed the show and i am really satisfied with it to write this review and say that it's rating is too under-rated and i hope the second season will be with the same quality and that's all i want to say.
What can I say? I have watched lots of harem and I know how they work. More and less, it is easy to describe and predict the movements of the series. And Bokuben has not surprise me a lot. I like some of its parts and characters. But from further, I can not say what could they do to bettering the anime. I mean, it is not bad at all, but the story that Bokuben say to me I have watched it in lots of different places.
Something I dislike about the story was the situation. Bobuken tend to exaggerate their scenes and
put the characters in not common situations. Even If the series do that, is okay if the know how to development it in a good way. But Bokuben does not do that, it uses a lot of repeated situations that everybody has watched. For example, the restroom, see the female characters with a few of clothes, an involuter kiss, etc.
For me, the art was great in specific situations but so fair in the normal situations. When the anime tries to express an emotion to us, the art does a great job. The expressions of the characters become more vivid and expressional xd. It is important to send the feeling of the characters and I think that the series do that part. But when they draw a background or a scene, the image is normal, nothing more than the mean.
The sound, like the art, is great for the situations and the characters voices, but when we talk about the background sound, are different things. I think that a good point was the voice actors of the girls. The voice covers the type of personality that characters could have, and the voices were so great. You can see this with Fumino and his potential noises xd.
The background music was okay, but I do not feel it in important scenes, and it does not make me feel anything.
I cannot say good think about the characters. It seems to me so cliche and boring except for Fumuni. The protagonist is the same characters that I have watched in lots of harem animes. He has a lot of things that make him a chicle. He is kind with the girls, helps when it is need and bla bla bla. He is not a human, he is just a character written in paper. But and after watching the final episode I can see that he has a good future. I mean, he can reach more and evolve in a good constructed character.
The other girls like Ogata, Takemoto, and Kirisu-sensei has a lot of problems in their feelings developments. It is like for magic they will love or like the protagonists. They feel empty. In fact, the anime has forgotten about Ogata. I have not seen her in long time. And even in the final episode they were like mere argumental objects that only appear to say that still alive.
But and it is something that I can presume, is Fumino. Indeed, Fumino feels like a person. She feels, analyses, understand the situations. She will not love the protagonist for magic, she has a constructed argument that make her be her. It cannot understand why if the serie can make characters like Fumino, for the other girls it is not the same. And after watched the final episode, I can say that Fumino is that shining star in this black night. Her construction and spoilers were so great. And hers feels has a lot of potential, more in this type of series.
I don’t mention the senpai Kominami because I do not know her to say something about.
I said. The serie has good intention but make the same errors that lots of harem animes has done. I enjoy the serie as a watcher of the anime, but I will not re-watch or recommend it because it does not give me a lot of good moments of memorable things.
It is said. This anime lacks argument, character’s construction, good or funny situations. Even if it makes some excellent points, it does not compensate the bad things. I hope that with this base and the characters they have now, can reach something better in the second season.
Story - high school boy wants free scholarship so agrees to tutor two girls who both suck at their chosen subject. more girls thrown into the mix, kind of generic characters. basically cliche high school harem. fan service included in pretty much every episode as far as one whole episode dedicated to chests.
Art - seen better, the style is above ms paint quality, but wouldn't call amazing.
Sound - sounds fine I guess but doesn't matter to me very much if its jap dub, eng sub.
Characters - we have broke tutor boy who's got a harem, tutoring rich girl, short big chest restaurant girl, childhood friend
sporty swimmer girl who has crush on him, naive clumsy ditzy teacher who takes him to her apartment and girl who looks like a middle schooler but her id says 19. not really any development, more fixated on fan service and studying games, characters are cliche.
Enjoyment - I enjoyed the first few episodes, then it got tiring to watch even one every week to the point its not even fun to watch.
Overall - generic-personality harem girls, virgin high schooler who can't make a move or take a hint, fan service and whatnot. oh and imouto complex sister but the show doesn't get into her so that's fine. just another seasonal show that'll be forgotten soon.
This is a phenomenal show, especially considering it is a harem-based anime. The harem portion of it is relaxed and well constructed, which is hard to say for the vast majority. The main protagonist is kind and considerate, albeit slightly dense (per usual of a kind protagonist), but not annoying like the majority of MCs in the genre.
Week to week I am constantly surprised by the entertaining additions and writing for such a seemingly mundane topic--studying/school. All of the characters have unique personalities and not a single one annoys me which is very rare for anime characters ESPECIALLY in this genre.
Needless to say, I am a fan, and I am sure the last three episodes will not disappoint, as my interest has only increased with each episode.
I just finished the 10th episode and I am liking the show more and more each time I watch it. Rarely have I yearned to watch the next episode of an anime as much, and not to over-reiterate my opinion, but that feeling is especially rare when it comes to a harem-based anime. The show is great, go in looking for a good time and you will probably find it. I certainly have.
(dororo and rising of the shield hero are two other shows I've really enjoyed this "season" if that helps hone my interest and general preference for anyone reading this review and still sitting on the fence about giving this show a shot.)
