Momoko Futo is an average high-school girl going about her everyday life. Though laid-back and cheerful, her life is anything but mundane as her eccentricity and clumsiness never fail to spice up her days. Her two best friends are always with her: the cute and innocent Mayumi Furui, and the calm and cool Shibumi Shibusawa. Without any spoken dialogue or narration, Joshikausei aims to recount the comedic shenanigans these girls get up to through the expressive sounds and gestures that they make.

This is a collection of three-minutes long vignettes of a certain high school girl’s life. The gimmick is that there are no dialogues, so it’s basically pantomime. The gimmick works. That’s it. 9/10.

No, really. The situations presented are far from mundane, so the plot actually keeps you engaged. The characters express more personality than 90% of the anime casts. There are backstories, twists and deepest lore. The art and music are fine. Fun things are fun. Dixi.

Incidentally, the first episode is about anime thighs. It’s not representative of the content and exists solely as pleb filter (just kidding, it’s actually the opposite - an appeal ...

Mixed Feelings
Some anime this year impressed me. There are also some anime this year that made me wonder if the creators were high on something. Then, there’s Joshikausei.

There’s an old phrase that you’ve probably heard of before: silence is golden. As a short anime without any dialogue, that’s what Joshikausei represents. The manga itself is also silent without dialogues. So now the real question comes, how would this show work? Was the author high when they made this?

Not quite. It’s actually real simple. The show is about high school girls interacting with daily activities. An easy draw of the show is the character chemistry between the ...

Ugh, this show... Who thought this was a good idea? :/

One of my favourite short comedy anime is Morita-san wa Mukuchi, where the extremely shy protagonist doesn't speak a word during the whole two seasons and we can only hear her thoughts from time to time. It was a cute gimmick that fueled the lighthearted SoL comedy of that series and made me remember it despite the rather plain "cute girls doing cute things" formula - I'm sure many people would find it boring, but it was well-crafted and relaxing.

Here, the silent cast is not a gimmick. It's a pointless hindrance that adds nothing of ...
