Chihiro Enomoto is a freshman that just got to a new school called Rikkyoin High School. He lost his parents in a traffic accident when he was 10. Since then, he has been living only with his elder sister Shinobu. He is good at cooking and cleaning, and does all the housekeeping jobs. He fell in love with Tokino at first sight when he met her in the school library on the first day of school. Another girl named Ritsuko, a childhood friend of Chihiro and the chair of student council, falls in the love with the boy instantly after this long-awaited reunion. But she is not the only one who is in love with him. This is the story about a one-year campaign among the candidates for the next students government leaders, who are also chosen by the lot (kujibiki), in order to gain the position.
These are 3 episodes of Kujibiki Unbalance which were the 1st, 21st and 25th episodes. This is the fictitious anime that the Genshiken guys were always watching, and after watching these 3 episodes, I think I liked it as much as the Genshiken guys did. These OVAs are definitely a MUST WATCH for people who liked Genshiken.
The 3 episodes I watched were just like previews of the show so I'm not so sure about the story. As from what I've understood in these 3 episodes, the story is about a boy named Chihiro that got into Rikkyouin High School, his encounters with people there, a
reunion with his childhood friend he promised to marry, and the Kujibiki, a school tournament, festival or tradition thing in which all the students face all kinds of battles for a whole year, be it sports, cooking, and silly competitions like enduring extreme temperature (synopsis says it's a battle for student government positions). It's a pretty fun and interesting story.
The art is really good. Everything looks great and the original character designs are nice. Problem is, only the designs were nice, most of the drawings seen are unattractively non-proportional and makes the characters look bad. Still, the animation is great, the characters move well and the action scenes are impressive.
The sounds are great. All the characters' voices are perfect. The soundtracks are nice and well fitted, and so are the effects. It has an attractive OP song and the ED song is good as is.
All the characters are great and likable. They have all kinds of fun personalities which makes the show comedy-funny and action-cool at the same time.
People would enjoy Kujibiki Unbalance as much as the Genshiken characters did. It's an anime of almost everything just like Seto no Hanayome. These 3 episodes are so good that viewers would want to check out the Kujibiki Unbalance 2006 alternate.
