Despite their distinctive personalities, Souma Shiki, Hayate Ichikura, Shun Futami, and Takayuki Mima all have one thing in common: though naturally clumsy, the four disguise their embarrassment from tiny slip-ups by maintaining a composed demeanor. However, it is actually the guys' airheaded natures that makes the girls' hearts throb. No matter what happens in their daily lives, the boys do their best not to lose their cool!

This short half-length episode series is the epitome of: "Week XX of saying I hate how damn relatable this anime is." Because it's really a lot of fun, and a hell lot better than we've ever bargained for.

We have the CGDCT genre: Cute Girls Doing Cute Things. But have you ever stopped to think of what's on the opposite side of the spectrum, with guys? And boy, do I have the answer for you, it's (also) CGDCT: Cool Guys Doing Clumsy Things! And no, it's not BL.

Play It Cool, Guys is a true comfort show to me. Like a warm and cozy blanket, I feel at home.

Iyashikei anime, also known as shows that focus on healing the audience, are amongst some of my favorites. Play It Cool, Guys goes a step further by introducing us to a bunch of cute guys of varying ages that are just super clumsy in their own way. And let me tell you that every one of their interactions with each other is truly entertaining to watch. In fact, I don’t have a favorite amongst the boys because they’re all so special in their own way. ...

Pretty cute, light, and fluffy. The way character relationships are allowed to build from meeting to meeting is interesting and really made this anime special. It’s slow-paced, with no central plot, so the character development was essential and well done. The art style is lovely. I also enjoyed reoccurring jokes and themes throughout. The voice acting is well handled. Sometimes characters’ goofs were emphasized more than necessary, but I rarely felt like that. If you’re looking for something fluffy, this might be a good pick for you! It struck me as queer-bating and fetishizing male relationships, or I would rate it more highly.
