Ok let's do this!
Midara na Ao-chan wa Benkyou ge Dekinai (Ao-chan Can’t Study!)
Genres: Comedy, Romance, Ecchi, Shounen
Studio: Silver Link.
I don’t even know what I am watching anymore but hey this looks good so I will carry on.
The show is about a girl named Ao who has a father whose job is to write x-rated stuff which caused her to developed an innate animosity towards all men. However there is this guy who has been hinting and directing his affection towards Ao which leads to a lot of misunderstandings and sticky situations ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) because Ao always gets ahead of herself and think that they will be engaging into something sexual.
This is a gag show for the most part but there are times that they take things on a heavier tone and actually establish a blooming relationship between the two despite their usual misunderstanding spree. Now for the real reason why I am here, aside from the Echhi tag of course (you got me there), it is because the character of Ao strongly reminds me of Kotegawa from the To Love Ru series (my favorite character from one of my favorite anime series) not only by her appearance but also in the way she carries herself as a model student but always jumps to perverted conclusions whenever she gets flustered.
Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!? (Why the hell are you here, Teacher!?)
Genres: Comedy, Ecchi, School, Seinen
I don’t even know what I am watching anymore but hey this looks good so I will carry on part 2.
The first one is just a warm up and now here comes the real deal. But before that may I request a moment of silence for my reputation is just about to get butchered real hard because of me promoting this show.
Okay that’s enough let’s get back to business. Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!? is a show that will test your patience because almost 90% of the time it is being bothered by a not so creative way of censorship, like “why the hell are you covering sensei!?” would have been a more fitting title. Based on that statement alone you can already more or less deduce how risque this show is so I can’t really put a hard recommendation on this one unless you are already an advanced
degenerate anime fan like me.
Another reason why I can’t recommend it so openly for now is because it is still censored so it will be wiser to calm down and wait for the uncensored ones to be released to fully enjoy the blessing that is this show!
Senryuu Shoujo (Senryuu Girl)
Genres: Slice of Life, Comedy, School, Shounen
Finally something decent in this list that I can proudly wave around. Thinking back maybe it would have been a better idea to put this at the top to avoid scaring away new people but what’s done is done. Well whatever let’s just continue.
One of my online friends used to send snapshots of this show’s manga on our group chat so it was also one of those shows I deliberately searched for when the season began. The show features a girl who is bad at speaking so she just writes down whatever she wants to talk about using Senryuu or Haikus which I would honestly say is adorably cute… in anime that is but imagine this in real life then that would be a real pain to deal with. If you are wondering if this is the show featuring the famed Komi-san that many fans are raving about then you are in the wrong neighborhood, though they are both not good at translating their thoughts into words it is just a mere coincidence or is it? I don’t know anymore and I don’t even want to bother looking for it. I am enjoying this one for what it’s worth and the smile of Nanako must be protected.
This is one of the lighthearted shows airing this season and the romance is fluffy and cute, the contrast of a misunderstood delinquent and a meek cheerful girl crushing on the delinquent guy is a recipe for an unexpectedly wholesome romantic story, reminds me a little of Yamada and the seven w
bitches. The supporting cast gives strong impressions as well, especially the comedy driver, Ms. Club President with her stalking antics and cool shades.
Genres: Comedy, Parody, Fantasy
Studio: Studio PuYUKAI
It is the age of isekai, we have a slime guy, shield bro with his circus troupe, smart phone guys (Mks. I & II available), robot geek shota, Mr. Flamboyant grandson, Skeleton daddy, an unfortunate boy, a more unfortunate boy, a middle aged salaryman loli etc. There are so many of them that I thought creators would run out of ideas about a new isekai show anytime soon but guess what? They isekai’d isekai protagonists to make a new isekai show, can this get any more isekai?
This is a rare occurrence, a once in a lifetime opportunity wherein not one, not two but four shows got jumbled together for the most epic crossover that people will talk about for years hereafter… or that is how things should be but this is not a serious shot at it, this is just a comedy show featuring popular characters from different stories and how they relate to each other, the animation is not worth taking note of, the plot is blurry if there is one anyway but my goodness, I just can’t get enough of this show, maybe the fact that there are few shows excelling played a factor too. The comedy is not the best there is as they are mostly referencing to the original works but they hit the spot for those well versed on all of the characters involved. Let’s see, this show could be compared to Carnival Phantasm (the best Type-moon series honestly) but comedy wise I would say that Iseka Quartet is still way behind but is definitely getting there. It is also interesting to see characters sharing the same voice actor/actress interact with each other and the ending song is probably one of the most notable one I have heard this season, Emilia’s voice is just way too soothing for me.
I won’t recommend this to everyone, specially if you haven’t seen any of the shows involved as the show’s humor, its main selling point, is riding on the fact that the viewers have already watched them, they are fairly popular shows by the way so it will not hurt to give each one a try.
And finally done with this list. I still have to do the OP and ED list though so I will not be getting a rest anytime soon. Well that’s all for this week so I will be turning in for the night. Thanks for reading and see you again next time!
