TL;DR Review

Aho-Girl (Japanese: アホガール Hepburn: Aho gāru, lit. “Stupid-girl”) is a Japanese four-panel slice-of-life comedy shōnen manga series written and illustrated by Hiroyuki.

The animation and visual of the show is way better than it needs to be, but then again, it is a harem type of show. The art is pretty good, but not quite great.

The opening song “Zenryoku☆Summer!” (全力☆Summer! “Full Power☆Summer!”) by Angela perfectly match the show theme. It’s fast, quirky, and doesn’t take itself too seriously.

We are introduced to a slew of eccentric characters, each with their specific quirk. While they are funny and all kind of stupid, they don’t really evolve or develop. This makes the show funny to the point where they run out of new character, or simply there are too many characters to keep track of. It’s a good thing the show is rather short, both in length and in episode wise. It keeps the show fun enough to not overstay its welcome.

Aho-Girl is just a dumb but fun anime to watch. I recommend it for those that like a slice of life but fast comedy anime that don’t mind a little ecchi-ness. This series contains comedic graphic violence and suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for mature audiences.

A Certain Magical Index Season 2 Review

On a transfer from England to Japan the “The Book of the Law” has been stolen.

To make matters worse the nun, Orsola Aquinas, who recently discovered a way to decipher the book, has been kidnapped…

At the Academy City the Daihaseisai, a sports festival, is underway. This “opportunity” is used to trade the Stab Sword — a spiritual weapon capable of killing Saints with one blow. But as it turns out the actual sword in question is far more dangerous…

KonoSuba Season 1 Review

Kazuma Satō is a hikikomori (shut-in) a die-hard fan of games, anime, and manga. A traffic accident brings his disappointingly brief life to an end, or it should have, but he wakes up and sees a beautiful girl who introduces herself as a goddess. She asks him if he’d like to go to another world but he can only bring one thing with him. Kazumi chooses to bring the goddess. With that, he is transported to another world and his great adventure subjugating the demon king begins, but first the hard work of finding food, clothing, and shelter begins. Kazuma wants to live in peace, but the goddess raises one problem after another, and then the demon king’s army has its eyes set on him.
