SerendipitouslySane’s Second Sententious Scrutiny of the Season Supra, Part IV

 5.      Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun

This has become the sleeper hit of the season, if there ever was one.

This picture is completely unrelated. I just really wanted to use it.

Nozaki-kun is a wonderfully timed slapstick about the titular high school shoujo mangaka and his unrequited admirer who gets recruited to becoming one of his harem of mostly male assistants. The pair, along with a cast of colourful cast mostly based on genderbent romance archetypes, observe their daily lives through the lens of the genre. It perfectly blends parodies of shoujo manga tropes with a hint of actual shoujo-style romance; the former makes it enjoyable to watch, while the latter actually makes one care for the series’ eccentric cast.

Now, that is all I have to say about this show, because there are no jokes that I could make that wouldn’t make me look like the rank amateur that I am in comparison with the show’s own gags.

I hate writing about actually good anime. Just go and watch Nozaki-kun, damnit.

P.S. Nozaki is best girl.

Rating: 8/10

We resume tomorrow after I get over my self-loathing with the help of significant quantities of alcohol.
