The Ping Pong Club manages to collect the sickest losers in school, immature teens who cross-dress, make poop jokes, put on kabuki makeup or do anything else to get a cheap laugh while lusting after girls and female teachers and occasionally training for an upcoming ping pong tournament. Like its characters, this comedy anime rather frustratingly lacks for cleverness and subtlety, and goes straight for the outrageous, often throwing away plot logic (or any kind of logic) to get the cheapest laugh possible. Its willingness to be gross to satisfy its viewers is almost morbidly fascinating. It makes Something About Mary look like a Lubitsch film.
Highly recommended for anybody who still shoots milk out of his nose at toilet humour, but not for anybody else.
