Uhm.... about that...spoiler[Manbagi exists.]


Thanks! spoiler[Manbagi - and the fact that the 2 most problematic and irritating characters Najimi and Yamai become less prominent -] is a major reason why I was thrilled to see the second season coming. Season 2 may be better than season 1.

However, spoiler[while Manbagi is a gyaru she isn't excessively curvy and her outfit isn't particularly skimpy]. Contrast with (for example) Aiura Mikoto of Saiki K, who - while not the only curvy girl in the cast thanks to Mera Chitaso - is definitely the only fanservice character in the show.

As sports day episodes go, this was really fun. They captured Netsuno really well and all the jokes landed quite well.

And of course the wholesome moments of Komi rooting for Tadano, everyone rooting for Komi, and Komi and Tadano exchanging bag straps...so heartwarming!

Yeah, the pervertedness from Yamano is way too overthetop. She is almost the female version of Mineta from My Hero Academia and I would pay for a gag involving the two getting their asses kicked. While I enjoyed some parts of this episode, the school's obsession with Komi is almost Ranma levels of craziness but more awkward considering how the humor works.

As an adaption of the manga, I felt this was perfect and did a good job of bringing the series, the cast, and the stories to life and making them even more enjoyable.

I can't wait until the next cour!

Overall it was a good anime, i think Netflix could do a better job at handling the subtitles for text signs and stuff, We know they heard us complain after the first episode. in my opinion it was an Average anime, a 7 out of 10, there were some pacing issues with some of the episodes but the animation in my opinion was spot on and sound effects/ sound track during the episodes was a plus. i don't think the OP or ED were memorable. we will see what happens when the next season comes out

The show was ok....even cute at times....but Yamai's presence, (and a few other characters) really drag it down for me. I wish death on her. What a horrible girl lol
