Storyline

Yuko and Mio are normal schoolgirls who lead ordinary lives and cope with day-to-day matters. Their friends, however, are not that normal: Mio's crush Kojiro brings a goat and butler to school even though his parents are farmers; Kojiro is constantly attacked by his female classmate Misato, who is also in love with him; Mai is a quiet friend but an inveterate prankster; a child genius known only as the Professor, who built her own parental guardian, the schoolgirl Nano. Added to the zany mix are the talking cat Sakamoto, the nervous teacher Izumi Sakurai and the deer-wrestling Principal Shinonome. In spite of all the insanity around the girls still manage to lead their regular affairs of work and play with sanity, as it's all just a part of life itself. Written by Q. Leo Rahman

A stunningly funny show, unfortunately underrated.
8 January 2018 | by pieninjaproductionsSee all my reviews

I don't watch Anime a lot, and I'm not particularly into Anime, but this show blew my mind in so many ways. It is, in my opinion, perfection.

The animation, the characters, the bizarre editing style and humor (which is genius, because it melds slice of life with super expressive over-exaggerated action anime) the music (holy smokes, the music is fantastic) and the story / skits; everything worked great.

I love the 3 main characters, their chemistry is excellent, and they are very funny when they are together. The side characters, Nano, the Professor, and Mr. Sakamoto is one of the most fascinating character dynamics I've ever seen, I love every second of their story-line, it is a super unique trio of characters.

This is a super under-rated show. Why? Because not many people know about it, and when it was released, it didn't find much success. Some of the clips get millions of views, and I happen to learn about it from a YouTube video about it, but it needs more love, and more watch time. It is very sad to know that a second season won't come to light because of how poorly it did financially.

I hope the animators and the people who worked on this show know that there is a loving fan-base that adores and supports their show, and I hope they do great things with their talents. Please watch this show!
