An unexpected treat!
27 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

After hearing about this anime through the internet and countless lists on great anime to binge watch, I was negated to watch this through it appearing to be aimed at girls and it seemed to be a sharp contrast from the common dark stories that usually make anime an intense experience.

But after succumbing to illness and being bedridden for a few days I decided to have a look at the first episode. Oh boy, was I surprised. I can only compare it to the likes of Wes Anderson if he were to make an anime; the overflow of colour and lights, hilarious and sometimes black comedy, complete with excellently developed characters with unusual idiosyncrasies.

Although its main narrative isn't anything groundbreaking or original, it's definitely portrayed differently and it's the perfect idea to be exaggerated in the world of anime. The characters are wonderful oddities and aren't afraid to be different or to explore taboo subjects. To the unknowing viewer, some of the topics shown might be considered 'over the line' but talking from the experience of watching this, it's better to embrace the weirdness of this show as it has a lot to offer in its run of 26 episodes.

The show isn't driven by a hard hitting story and doesn't aim for tear-jerking moments, excessive gore or fantastical sci-fi; it uses it's simplicity to its advantage by focusing on all of the main characters and their contrasts with each other, also introducing a few hints of satire towards social class in there.

Overall, I advise anyone - even if you're a guy trying to preserve your masculinity - to give this show a watch. It's outrageous and funny and the material doesn't get old, especially with the use of frequent fourth-wall breaks and genuinely sweet interludes. I was extremely surprised by this and I'll be sure to re-watch it soon.
