The Facts are These:
High School Student Chiyo Sakura has a crush on the boy Umetarou Nozaki. When her confession towards him is misheard, she learns of his secret, that he is a Shoujo Manga Artist. Now by helping him work on his weekly series, will she get closer to him and their love bloom, or will hijinks ensue.
This show was incredibly unique. I had read the manga beforehand and was enjoying it. So I was worried whether the show would live up to my expectations and it did. The show is hilarious and I was impressed. The show kept me entertained with its fast paced and unique humour. The show reminded me of the anime Seitokai Yakuindomo, excluding the dirty humour. Both shows had an odd sense of humour, while one focused on dirty jokes the other show focused on the unique situation of the manga artist. The show has a fun character with even more enjoyable personalities.
Behind the Scenes:
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is based off the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Izumi Tsubaki. She has worked on other series such as Oresama Teacher and The Magic Touch. The series was directed by Mitsue Yamazaki who has directed season 1 and 2 of Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun and has done miscellaneous works on other series. The series was produced by the Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun Production Commitee. The series was made by Studio Dogakobo and was licensed in North America by Sentai Filmworks. The opening song is “Kimi Janakya Dame Mitai” by Masatoshi Oishi.
Here is the opening for the anime… this was the best I could find. All the other one I found were the opening within a boarder and those looked stupid. I settled on this one because it just looks a bit grey.
A Brief View of the World:
The show takes place in modern day Japan, like a lot of the show that I have reviewed. The show revolves around two main setting Nozaki’s apartment and the school.
This is one of the few shows that in recent years have made me laugh out loud. It was hilarious and I am extremely happy that I watched it. It was definitely one of the best anime of the season and it definitely deserves a sequel.
The show is definitely rewatchable, with the series length of 13 episodes and a great plot, it deserves a rewatch because it is good.
My Bride is a Mermaid – For a humorous romance comedy though with mermaids.
Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! – For an oddball school life scenario.
