Damn, I'm going to miss this show.

In the finale, we got comedy about a baby, bras, battle royale, and usual games that turns into jokes. This series loves to make fun of itself and the characters from the very start. In this finale, it continued to do so again.

Need more comedy anime like this in the future.

Great episode for our finale.

That was clearly a perverted baby. XD
Don't worry Hanako, I'm sure you'll grow up to be a fine lady. :3

The mobile game cracked me up, the shogi club president sure had her revenge. XD

The final skit was the most hilarious, with the butler dude who's name I always keep forgetting drawing that weird ass creature on everything. I couldn't stop laughing. XD

Overall, this was easily one of the best entries of Summer 2018 especially considering this wasn't one of the stronger seasons of anime in recent times and was easily one of the most funny shows of this year. The characters were great, the gags were great, the reactions were priceless, everything just worked so well. I found myself cracking up almost every episode and for me personally, it was a great way to start my Sundays. I hope that 2nd season tease at the end of the 10th season wasn't a lie.

9/10, "Sore kara doushitano?"

Best comedy show i watched. Every single episode had me laughing, either moderately or just hysterically.

My first 10/10 for a comedy anime.

What I loved from all the series is how well they respected continuity. Old characters returning, topics and situations being referenced and all in all a great attention to detail.

Super funny series and I hope there's a second season.

BTW the ED had me laughing when I realized that the magical creature drew by Maeda was over the head of the girls! Those kind of details made me love this series to the very end!

Definetely one of my favorite shows this season. If it wasn't for Overlord S3 this definetely would have become my favorite summer anime. Well, this is probably one of my contenders for AOTY.

The ending had an Easter-egg. Every girl had Maeda's parasite on their heads. :D Also, Mister Man, Dragon and Speech were in the ED as well.

The part with the baby made me laugh so hard, spicy!

That was a great comedy, 8/10 from my part, I hope the manga translations eventually catch up to the anime, but they are painfully behind q_q

This is by far one of the best anime of this season.

This genuinely made me laugh way too hard. Even adding the drawings to the Ending was an amazing thought! 9/10!

Totally going to miss this series! It's hilarious, and it was mostly full hits and only a few misses. I'm honestly surprised that it the expressions and Hanako's screeching didn't get stale, I guess it's because it worked so well with the gags.

The last episode isn't my favorite, but I still laughed and my cheeks are a bit sore from smiling almost all the way through. That baby was so disturbing, lmao. I could relate with Hanako in that second skit. The third one...I was expecting it to go that direction, but did not expect that kind gore. Like damn, Hanako's cat was twitching. And I think I saw Kasumi's dog's brain fly out. The plot twist though was who their opponents were XD The last skit, what an interesting game, haha. I don't think anyone could ever win that game tbh, it'd just go on forever. Especially with Maeda's disgusting parasite!!! I agree, this was the most enjoyable series in this season.

Damn, that baby is so cute despite that I can't stand them lol. They added the drawings to the Ending.

I'll miss this show, the BEST comedy from Summer 2018. 8/10 for the anime

That baby was seriously creepy, the shogi captain returned for revenge (in her own way) and they even added Maeda's drawing to the ending. The best way to end the series, tbh.

Really gonna miss the autistic adventures of Hanako & co. Time to wait for the OVA and the specials. Will pray for a second seaosn of this, one of the shows I liked the most this summer. Lerche did it again.

And thus this anime ends on a high note! I loved the princess war game and I am kinda pissed I didn't come up with that as a kid. I would have loved it! I knew which joke was coming during the mobile game, but it still had me in stitches. That baby was freaking creepy though...

Overall I can give Asobi Asobase a very solid 6/10!

I really hope Nintendo doesnt turn Animal Crossing 2019 into an Battle Royale like that... lol

11/10 Comedy. I did hope to see Kasumi's Sis, but Maeda's parasited ending was a great way to end it too. I dont wanna imagine how a longer version of that skit would look like. It could fill an entire movie with billions of Maeda's parasite with other characters in the mix to make the Great Asobi War.
(Olivia's brother would totally draw an army of cute lolis for this kind of fight...)

I am going to miss this one, the comedy was fresh, crazy and hilarious from start to finish.

If they decide to go for a second season I hope they do not change the VAs (they did an amazing job) or the art style.

Comedy of the season and one of the best comedy anime I have seen. Usually I have a preferred character for this sort of series, but I enjoyed all of them here, from main casts to side characters like Maeda. I used to play that princess game with my friends back at elementary (except we use a castle, not a princess). It brings back so much memories.

I like that the final episode ended in the same style of the original comedy and unexpected jokes, as it was before in the show. It was not in my taste, but I obviously remember Oosora and Olivia for a long time, amazing characters.

Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

I had some issues with this at first , but luckily it turned out pretty well. Amusing show and occasionally I got some good laughs out of it.

One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Hilarious episode.

The segments with the bra and paper wars were the best imo. The game segment was pretty alright.

Sad to see this go. Really hope theres enough material for another season someday. By far one of the best comedies of the year

And here it goes one of my favorite shows of the season and the year, seriously, between this and Grand Blue I don't know how I resisted without dying of laughter. I'm definitely going to miss the girls.

Ever since the third and fourth episode, the series has been consistently delivering. It may not reach the peak of a lot of other comedies, but it's one of the most consistent in quality. Hope this series gave more exposure to the seiyuu cast because they were amazing. Especially Hanako's, lol. With Grand Blue's lackluster adaptation, I'm glad that something else was able to give me a higher dose of comedy this season.

EH AA has been declining in quality lately; most of the jokes became stale and predictable. Kind of ironic considering AA is unpredictable by nature. The first half was hilarious but only a couple of episodes got some chuckles out of me in the second half.

The main problem with this show is it's format. Gag humor has never really been my taste, i'm more of an humor with a plot type of guy. Grand blue does this nicely with it's format consisting of a strong plot point each episode that carries on into the next. AA has strong continuity too but since it's non linear by it's nature it comes off hard to set up good comedic timing for me to burst out laughing.

Grand blue struggled in the first couple of episodes while AA started off strong. It's funny how they took opposite directions of quality as the season progressed. Grand blue improved it's comedic timing and character development (which isn't that important in comedy) with hilarious interactions and sort of wholesome moments. I think the biggest difference between GB and AA is that GB has more downtime in between the gag comedic punches to surprise the audience for better reactions.

I guess the best description to give AA is that it's a fun and wacky gag comedy but comes off too predictable later on. I give AA a 7/10

I absolutely love the baby. He was hilarious! (But, I hope he never shows up again. In case there is a second season, that is.)

The online game was hilarious. I knew something really was gonna happen, but I wasn't expecting it to be that brutal.

The game at the end was also quite funny. I don't think a game like that can ever end.

I will miss hearing 'sorekara do shita no?"

That was a letdown. Possibly one of the weakest finalé's I've seen this season so far. Hopefully the OVA's bring back the fun, but I also kinda fear for season 2 now...

Wow, this last episode was awesome, i laugthed a lot this episode!

The perverted baby! The battle royal in smarthphone looked like Happy Three Friends, and was really funny that they think it was a diferent game!

What was the last game, i laughted to much because of Maeda, he drew always the parasite, when Hanako with his voice asked him "you only know draw that?"!

This show was awesome, i have enjoyed a lot, hope this will get a second season as we saw in movie poster! I will miss this show for sure!

Not sure if I was watching the same comedy show like other people did watching. Quite shocking to see some refer this similarity to Danshi Koukousei which I watched like more than twice but this show didn't remotely gave me any laugh. Not that I care about comedy, while at least was hoping seeing some interesting jokes instead it fills with random facial expressions and 1D characters whose personality is so random and some of the ideas is so ridiculous and sometimes disturbing to watch [especially when the whole cast are female characters]. meh

By far my favourite show this season, and probably my favourite comedy this year. Had me laughing from episode one all the way to the final credits with the parasite things being added to the ED. Jokes, voice acting and animation were all consistently high quality and even the 'weaker' segments were still hilarious.

9/10 - second season please!

A good episode to end a good show.

I felt that the 2nd half of this show wasn't as strong as the first and the 11th episode was pretty bad when it comes to the enjoyment levels, but it's still a solid 8/10 show.
