“Edutainment” series, ones that both exist to teach and to entertain, are something not everyone enjoys. I think Time Travel Shoujo is the strongest Edutainment series I’ve seen to date, and could still be something those that generally don’t care for them would enjoy. This is Bill Nye of anime.

“I want to put my life on the line to live.” Best quote of 2017
– Tsukushi Tsukamoto
This is how you should aim to live your life, some may say that Tsukushi Tsukamoto is an idiot that doesn’t understand his limits, but he is my hero
Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru (or Konobi for short) is a perfect example of an anime which technically doesn’t do anything particularly different from your average rom-com, but it accomplishes what modest goals it has with flying colours. We have a standard middle school club setting and barely any plot development to speak of; the show is simply about the everyday events the characters experience in their lives, and their interactions with each other. No more, no less. But with characters as interesting and likeable as these and some good laughs to go with them, that’s really all you need to still deliver a very funny and entertaining anime.
Saiki Kusuo no Ψ nan is a comedy slice-of-life story about Saiki Kusuo who has special powers that allow him to do pretty much anything. Yet, when you can do so much, all you want is peace, but you rarely get what you want. Continue reading
Qualidea Code is pretty standard, but not unbearably standard. While the character designs may look generic even if it wasn’t produced by the A-1 picture and the clothing simply a school setting for a sake of simplicity in not giving them unique clothing…
The anime isn’t actually a school setting anime and instead focuses on six characters divide into three groups which run and defend their respective districts. Continue reading
At first glance Mob Psycho 100 is another brilliant comedy written by ONE, the same author of One Punch Man, however upon further viewership, there is much more to be seen. Mob Psycho is actually a character driven story supplemented by humor, and the occasional action sequence. I recommend Mob Psycho to everyone on this planet, and encourage them to watch and to be surprised, just as I was, when they realize they are no longer watching a simple comedy, but complex character story.

The Morose Mononokean is certainly a hidden gem from this Summer 2016 season as I unfortunately made the mistake of overlooking it. If you’re a comedy fan, then this show would be a treat for you with its crude humour and running gags that are recurring throughout. Continue reading
Shokugeki comes back with this second season! As someone that picked up the manga, I expected that now that I know everything that will happen, I wouldn’t be as much interested as before, back when I fell in love with this anime, but I was totally wrong! the pure epicness of Shokugeki no Souma is more than enough to make me as scream like a fanboy just like before.
Amaama to Inazuma’s story starts out very simple. It’s about a father who takes care of his daughter. Naturally, you won’t expect a lot from a plot like this. There won’t be any psychological battles, a lot of action or huge adventures. It’s just a guy with his daughter living life… Not the most interesting thing in the world! Continue reading
