First Episode Review for: Boku Ha Tomodachi Ga Sukunai
Summary : A transfer student unfairly branded a delinquent and rabble rouser, accidentally makes friends with the schools “perfect student” (so perfect that she has no friends as no one will go near her), they form a club to help others get over the same problems and make “real friends”
Animation : A bit flat but nothing that detracts from watching
Plot Potential: This is a very Japanese anime (even more so than normal) in that the characters actions are driven by forces that we bailey think about in our lives
Characters: Initially very standard characters but given a depth due to the plot, visually nothing original.
Music: Funky opening theme and pleasant bouncy music during, good ending to boot (The end animation sequence is ace)
Reminds me of: A much lighter version of Usagi Drop
Overall: I will be watching as long as the plot holds, lets hope it grows nicely (I dread the traditional No. 7 “bath house” episode)
Disclaimer: These are mini reviews of anime’s that are fresh out in Japan and are not licensed in the UK, buy them once they have been licensed or at the very least buy the merchandise, remember if the anime makers make a loss, THEY WILL STOP MAKING ANIME!!
