Storyline

Yuko and Mio are normal schoolgirls who lead ordinary lives and cope with day-to-day matters. Their friends, however, are not that normal: Mio's crush Kojiro brings a goat and butler to school even though his parents are farmers; Kojiro is constantly attacked by his female classmate Misato, who is also in love with him; Mai is a quiet friend but an inveterate prankster; a child genius known only as the Professor, who built her own parental guardian, the schoolgirl Nano. Added to the zany mix are the talking cat Sakamoto, the nervous teacher Izumi Sakurai and the deer-wrestling Principal Shinonome. In spite of all the insanity around the girls still manage to lead their regular affairs of work and play with sanity, as it's all just a part of life itself. Written by Q. Leo Rahman

First half was great, second half was crap
29 April 2016 | by pinkarraySee all my reviews

This anime makes The Boxtrolls' writing look good. Actually, this is the worst anime that came out in a long time. It's unbelievable how bad this anime can get. At first, you got the two group of kids and their ordinary yet unusual lives but then they have the kids meet and they expect to make the audience go "Awwww...." but it turns out to be more cutesy than cute. But I was just sitting there, yelling at the screen and cannot get past this anime.

I guess it was because it would make the anime confusing if they don't support each other but at the end, it's like the writers and directors aren't even trying anymore. The anime bears some similarities to Azumanga Daioh but that has better writing.

This shows that KyoAni cannot make good anime. Maybe one day they'll make something decent to watch.
