Kimi to Boku — First Impression

I second the cat.

Four young gentlemen sit on the roof, prep up each other’s hair and whine, while sakura blossoms drift past. A breathtaking scene.

This is the next iteration in the cute girls do cute things genre. Except it’s guys instead of girls. And they have no enthusiasm whatsoever. And it isn’t funny at all. Those are the two components which made this genre interesting in the first place. Stripped of them, it’s just people sitting around complaining. Why would I want to watch a show that makes my own life look like Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan by comparison? Dropped.

  1. I guess this is payback for guys everywhere who ignored complaints by female otaku that K-on in no way reflects their experiences as school girls. I for one never sat on a rooftop combing my friend’s hair while we talked about our memories of sleeping alongside each other.

    1. True enough. Generally you would take out a bit of realism to make the story more interesting. But here they took out a bit of realism and managed to make the story more boring.

  2. It’s like Ouran High School Host Club, minus the whimsy and what little testosterone that show had. I sat through C3 without trouble, and I had the hardest time trying to get through the first episode of this piece of shit.

    1. Same here. C3 was terrible but terrible in the way you can’t take your eyes away from a trainwreck. This was so boring I couldn’t even be assed to laugh *at* it.

  3. Heh, I didn’t really dislike this. It was about as funny as K-ON (although less funny than better ones like Azumanga and Nichijou).

    Might not watch all 26 episodes though…(there’s supposedly another season next Spring…:) )

    1. It was about as funny as K-On, but at least the characters in K-On were likable. These guys just make me want to strangle them.

      And wow, 26 episodes? That sounds like torture.
