Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai

As usual, no spoiler and straight to the merit point of this anime. I hope it will help you decide whether to watch this series or not.

Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai is an anime series that was aired in 2011. The second season "Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai NEXT" was aired in 2015.

The story is about a bunch of highschoolers who have problem in making friend, they decided that they will make club that its main activities is to practicing many things that can help them to get friend.

Why you want to watch this :

  • You want to chill out and smile (not laugh, it is not funny enough to make me laugh)
  • You want to watch romance anime (2nd season)

 

Why you don't want to watch this :

  • You hate bullying, one of the main characters is bullying other characters for the whole series
  • You hate harem
  • No story progression at all, at last until half of the 2nd season

 

The interesting point in this anime is their bond and interaction, each of them doesn't have any friend for different reasons. For example, the main character, Kodaka, can't have friend because he looks like a delinquent.

The story progression is... well, firstly it's not clear whether the goal of the main storyline is creating new friend or creating stronger bond between each of the club member. So, it is depend on where you set your expectation. But as overal, the story is flowing at a pretty fast rate (excluding the romance).

Their club activities is practicing in many activities that they think will help them in making friend, well, in the end they just playing around because they choose wrong kind of activities to begin with.

It's fun to watch their club activities, from playing visual novel, playing game, shopping, etc.

About characters personality, I have mixed feeling with this anime. Some are unique like Kobato and Sena, some are just okay and easy to watch, and there is also one god damn annoying character (Mikazuki Yozora) who always bullying other characters.

The romance element in this anime is strong, but as my summary above, the love story doesn't go anywhere until the middle of the 2nd season.

If you searching for fan service, there is only few fan service here. Not every episode contain fan service.

The artwork is good, the style and color is pleasant, the character design also memorable, even their clubroom design is memorable haha... so I think this is the strong point of this anime.

I enjoyed it but to be honest all of the bullying things in this anime is a bit fallback. And if you decide to watch it, make sure you watch until the end of the 2nd season :)
