OK kids, listen up. I don't know, nor care, what fucking slop you may be enjoying at the moment, but drop whatever you are watching right now and just GIVE IT A TRY.

I'm here to spread the message.
I won't even attempt to properly review this - shit's only 3 episodes at the time of writing, and it could easily slip into oblivion at any moment. For now, however, it delivers.
Yes, neither the setup nor the premise are particularly enthralling. Yes, the presentation can be rather tacky with the artistic choices they made. YES, IT ISN'T ANYTHING EXTRAORDINARY, but it's something...
IT IS SOMETHING, PEOPLE!
Something new ...

This anime looked good at the start. Nice music, nice scenarios, nice style, etc... But the main character is so annoying, transformed a potentially good anime in just something annoying to watch.

At first this anime was aiming very high, and after watching several boring cliches in the first and second episodes, (The thing about him being so simp, that he only thinks about fucking, that he shits literally every time he gets nervous), i thought that maybe it would improve for the rest but no. All the episodes are the same, the protagonist continues to contribute absolutely nothing, apart from throwing a punch at ...

I can't believe how low the ratings for this are. Sure, there a lot of dumb aspects to this. A lot of the plot, the MC being such a simp in its most stupid way, the importance given to a lot of things are ridiculous. But that adds up to the charm of the show. It brilliantly fuses these things that are dumb at first sight into a very compelling show to a very satisfying ending too. The animation is also one of the best of the season. This style is so much better than a lot of others even big budget ones recently. The ...

I really wanted to like Bucchigiri but I can't. After the third episode Ireally watched just because the animation was good and hoped it would become better but nope. The good thing about this anime is production quality. Sounds animations drawing colors made really well which is a shame because they are wasted on this awful show. Let's talk about the bad thing. Its the characters and the story telling.

First of all MC is one of the most braindead characters I've ever saw. Whole show is he simping on a girl and it is obvious that the moment some other girl show interest he would ...

Currently, this is my number anime because I can see great potential in it. Hopefully, With the next coming episodes, shit hits the fan and the plot will get interesting. As of now, it's just a pure comedy with some interesting action scenes.

I don't know how to write a review, but I'm telling you right now that this anime is absolutely great, and I don't why it has a low rating (7.5 as of Jan 29)

Believe it or not, I'm actually counting the hours for the next episode. This is how excited I am for this anime.

Highly recommend it. Don't listen to others ...

The plot of this anime is intriguing, yet my initial concern lies with the main character's introduction, which comes off as somewhat irritating. However, I acknowledge that character development often unfolds over at least six episodes, so there's potential for improvement. The narrative seems reminiscent of 90s or early 2000s anime, though the main character's current nature is a drawback. The storyline, revolving around a person gaining random powers and using them carelessly, feels somewhat generic, with the character's motivation centered on an unconventional goal. While I don't inherently dislike this plot, it appears underutilized in the first three episodes. Some critics label the main ...

The MC is terrible. One of the worst I've ever seen. The show, for some reason, is incredible dedicated to making him the most unlikable MC possible; it really is astounding. The rest of the side cast is decent enough, nothing too offensive, except for the really annoying bro-con love interest the MC is crushing on. Extremely baffling choice to have the MC simp over someone that is literally more interested in her brother and pays the MC no intention, even up until the end of the show. There's moments where the love interest even recognizes how easy it is to manipulate our shitty MC.
It's ...

I’m so disappointed. This anime would be 100 times better without Arajin but alas, he’s the main character. He’s not funny, he’s one of those annoying screechy characters that overreacts to everything, and as far as I can tell he’s just a coward and a simp. Not sure who wrote this drivel or how the hell it has such a high rating (I’m guessing 12 year old boys?) but it’s hot garbage. He’s always clutching his ass about to shit himself, he’s down bad for any girl that even glances in his direction, and he won’t talk to his friend because apparently apologizing is too ...

Bucchigiri is a classic example of starting strong but ending poorly. Ep.1 was the most exciting - the rich and exotic artistic style, the Aladdin reference with a new twist, the lively action sequences...they all led me to believe that Bucchigiri would be an imaginative anime.

More questions arose as the story progressed, and none of them were resolved even reaching the very final episode. What exactly is a "Honkibito" and why Matakara wanted to become one so badly? What was the deal with Senya and Yichiya and why did they hae to settle this through possessing high schoolers? Why was Matakara so fixated on Arajin? ...

From the director of Free!, Banana Fish, and Sk8 the Infinity, comes Bucchigiri?!, an anime about a pathetic shrimp of a man who is mean to his loving and supportive mother and is so obsessed with getting in a girl's pants that he keeps crudely ignoring his hot childhood friend who not only is so blatantly dtf, but also clearly cares about him and wants to reconnect with him.

Like this director's previous shows, this one has no shortage of yaoibait, but it falls entirely flat because the main character is such an unlikable snotnosed worm. His kind childhood friend who clearly still loves him and ...

I can't dispute the fact that this looks great, fantastic even. The background is almost a character in and of itself in how detailed it is and even the background characters are well-drawn.
The opening and ending themes are real bangers you can bop to as well.
Unfortunately, the plot is not doing it for me. The main character Arajin is so cringe at how he interacts with Senya. He talks, no yells, at him in public and people are like huh? I get it's done for laughs, but I hate the trope. Because of this the jokes are kind of falling flat.
But my biggest problem is ...

This is easily the worst anime I've watched this season and probably the worst in the past year. This show is really abysmal to say the least.

The protagonist, an annoying virgin (yes, the term is plot-relevant) who refuses to be a decent person, and love interest, brother-syndrome trash, are nearly unbearable. I tried to hold out hope for any type of character development, but this is where I drop it. The only real saving grace is the animation (thanks to MAPPA), the side characters and story itself. It's a bit simple story-wise but the overarching plot of "honki people" had me intrigued, it could ...

This anime doesn't really deserve these scores I think. I assume most of the low scoring comes from people who quit the show early due the the annoying mc. But for me, considering the current situation of industry where most anime are formula based, all same character designs, copy paste animations, etc., this show offers a nostalgic authenticity in terms of characters, graphics, sound and animations. I really enjoyed the art and art direction, a creative and quality production in summary. The story is not that of a masterpiece, but still a worth watch for a short anime. (I'll definitely watch if it continues, though). ...

I wanted to like this show and the start that it had with the first episode was nice. But the more I watched it just got more and more annoying how dumb the mc is and I don't like it at all. Bro just simps so hard for someone who doesn't even like him at all. All he wants to do is lose his v-card which is just so stupid. I was hoping for it to improve but it hasn't at all. He doesn't contribute to anything in this show at all. This is just predictable in almost every episode and some of the jokes ...

It starting to feel like Mappa is adopting a Disney-like approach in Japan. Why? Well, take a look at this anime. It's like they've meticulously checked all the boxes of what typically makes a shonen show popular: there are intense fights, a school setting to appeal to teenagers, and generic supernatural elements. Plus, they've thrown in clones and derivative personalities from popular manga like JJK and Bleach, assuming that what worked there will work here too.

But despite checking off all these boxes, they've somehow missed the mark entirely.

This is easily one of the most forgettable anime I've seen in years. AND Let's be real ...

the anime start out good, the premise is unique but not uncommon... but then it keep showing how pathetic MC is, and the only girl appearing is so damn cringy, what a waste of potential

I myself stopped watching mid episode 4, I can stand the first 2 episodes but the latest 2 episodes are boring and I'm getting impatient that I mostly fast forward, so I decided to dropped it, but if you like this kind of anime troupe with annoying girl and pushover MC then go ahead

second ML and the girl's brother were much better in personality and aura

While I was watching the series, I initially thought that it was doing way too much. It was trying to focus on SO many characters and subplots that seemingly don't connect at a first glance. What is Arajin's problem? What is Matakara's damage? Why is Mahoro so obsessed with Marito? It gives us hints and sprinkles but actual concrete conclusions are sparse.

It wasn't until the last episode where I finally understood wtf even the story was about. This whole time I thought it was leading up to Arajin getting over Mahoro in order to connect with his childhood friend again, making me really dislike the ...

The MC ruins the show.

Every other character explodes with personality, the concept is fun, and the art direction is reminiscent of older anime. This anime was a sure fire win in all categories. And then you see more of the MC. He's like someone took a master level simp with no self respect or self awareness and tried to make Tokyo Revengers. This show truly had the potential to be one of the top anime of the season.

I'm tempted to drop this one due to the unlikable nature of the person whose story we are supposed to be following.
It wouldn't be ...

'Bucchigiri?!' is the type of shows that I usually try to avoid. I literally went to watch it thinking that I'm going to drop it right after I finish the first episode. But the interesting mix of themes, good animations, and where I thought the anime is headed made me continue up until episode 7, though I'm not sure if I'm able keep on further.

I never thought someone is capable of creating a main character that is more insufferable than Kazuya from Rent-a-Girlfriend. And this is not to hate on Rent-a-Girlfriend, at least Kazuya kind of has a goal, trying to take things slowly, very ...

I have never felt more betrayed by such great production value.

The series has some banger opening and ending songs, great character design and characterization... and one of the worst main characters ever that manages to bring down the entire show to a cringe-inducing painful watch. The episodes where he's featured the least are the best ones, and that doesn't happen until you're over halfway through. If you cannot stand him during the first episode please just skip this, you'll be doing yourself a favor.

If you do decide to sit through this one, you'll have fantastic fighting scenes between colorful characters with some lighthearted humor sprinkled ...
