What better way to start a new anime season than with a classic premise: a cute and wacky girl moves in with a hapless male protagonist against his will. What kind of crazy high school life awaits him now!?
Genre traditions dictate that the more outlandish the premise is, the flimsier the justification. In this case, the guy’s father and the girl’s parents, both living abroad, made a deal that their children should get married.
I admit it, I like making fun of anime. I enjoy complaining about all the stupid little things it does, the poor writing, the terrible characters. I could rant for hours about the idiotic backstory and the way everyone just accepts it as a given. But I’m not going to. These shows clearly don’t give a damn, so neither will I.
And ultimately, isn’t this way preferable to all those chuuni light novel shows that painstakingly explain their totally unique setting in extreme useless detail? Wouldn’t you rather take an absurdly dumb premise for granted than listen to ten minutes of droning exposition? Makes you think, doesn’t it? Unlike Okusama ga Seitokaichou.
So uhh… what about the actual show? Well, watch it if you like fanservice, awkward sex jokes, slightly creepy protagonists, virgin heroines who want to please their Chosen One, and all sorts of other things you’ll have seen dozens of times before. As far as these shows go it’s not even that objectionable, it’s just so cliched that it’s not even worth mocking. It’s bad, and I’ll just leave it at that.
First episode rating: 4/10
