Well, I finally am starting to finish a multitude of shows, and the most recent one is BhTgS. I just like how the acronym looks….BhTgS….cool.
Going into this season, I saw Boku wa Tomodachi as a show that most people would ignore, thinking that it was some sort of harem bullshit cliche thing. As someone who reads the manga, I knew mainly what to expect, and that this was not a typical harem. In fact, I would be hard pressed to consider this a harem, since most of the “love interests” for our main character, Kodaka, are more or less jokes of love interests, and none of them seem to be seriously in love with him or anything like that. For example:
Yozora: Signs of love are evident, but I feel more or less like she just wants him to be her friend again, like he used to be.
Sena: She’s a pedophile for Kodaka’s sister. But clearly she does want his cock.
Rika: She’s a slut. That being said, she seems to more or less like gays.
Maria: She’s a fucking child.
Kobata: Also a child, not to mention Kodaka’s sister.
Yukimura: Here’s a pairing that Rika would like….not gonna ever happen.
Now that I’ve said what I wanted to say there, let me say this:
This was a very good adaptation.
I had my doubts that this would turn into some super fanservice bullshit, and even though there were a couple of heavy fanservice scenes, I felt like it was mainly just good entertainment as a whole, and stood true to the manga (which I subsequently stopped reading once the anime started).
Now, as for my favorite character, I had a tough choice between Yozora and no one else. It wasn’t until the last episode when I realized that Rika is actually the best character (with Stella being a close second and Yozora dropping off completely). The reason why surprised me.
I recently talked about the greatness of Marina Inoue, who was the seiyuu for Yozora. But Rika has the best seiyuu in the show in Misato Fukuen, who I do not know, though she’s voiced several prominent roles. As Rika, she’s always screaming and full of emotion. It’s superbly entertaining to watch, but whenever Rika got airtime, I became captivated by her perverted screaming, puns, and other shit like that. AWESOME.
Especially loved by me was the small, underlying continuous story of Yozora and Kodaka’s past. It wasn’t overpowering at all, in fact it was almost invisible, but it was just apparent enough where you always got excited when they started talking about it. And Yozora’s big hair change at the end? AWESOME. I immediately want more. All in all, it was a very solid anime. Nothing too memorable, but very solid.
FINAL GRADE = 5
Yeahhhh Extra Shit.
So I’ve been posting at an insane rate lately, and I’ve been DEVOURING anime and manga. I’M BACK!
School just started and I don’t think I’m going to have time to breathe this semester. Could be a hiatus coming up or I might just fail out instead. God damn Education courses….they’re all full of busywork that takes forever. I KNOW ALL THIS SHIT ALREADY FUCK YOU EDUCATION PROGRAM YOU’RE USELESS.
I could teach the fucking program myself.
Will be watching much anime this weekend. GO GIANTS!
