Series update: Things I still like about Joshikousei even though the fanservice has stopped.
July 9, 2006
If you haven’t watched the show, this list will probably mean nothing to you, but Joshikousei has turned out to be a rather good Slice of Life show that started from humble fanservice beginnings to turn out to be a well rounded and interesting single season anime.
When I first started watching Joshikousei, I expected it to just be a shallow fanservice fluff show, but after the fanservice left, there are a lot of things in the show that holds it up without fanservice ^_^…
Great thing number 1: Shimotakatani-kun. (He has a funny name)
Great thing number 2: Starting Skits. (Especially the Maria-sama ga miteru one) – It’s great to have an anime that doesn’t take itself seriously ^_^.
Great thing number 3: One Liners – Yuma – “Don’t come near! I’m expelling water from inside”
Great thing number 4: Realistic High School life – Girls that worry about pubic hair plucking, periods and boys. Relationships that aren’t portrayed as the love of his or her life. Desperately trying to lose your virginity – That is the spirit of High School!
Great thing number 5: Ogawa (though she should be a super loli who is more experienced than everyone else) – mainly because she is addicted to vitamin drinks and drugs guys to not have sex with her. Priceless.
Great thing number 6: Lesbian yaoi – The only actually gay couple in the school acting like Ouran High School Host Club. Oh how I laughed…
Great thing Number 6 – Eri and Kouda’s Boke/Tsukkomi. It fits them so well O_o
Great thing number 7: Mamiko Noto randomly playing secretly pervy meganekko. She really gets around these days ^_^;;
Trust a female mangaka to take high school life, and nail it square on with an extra pinch of OTT comedy.
