I was hoping for something a little edgier, something a little more warts-and-all. Like a male equivalent of High School Girls (the manga, not the sanitized anime version). So far it's like they substituted slightly older boys for the cast of Today in Class 5-2. Not bad by any means, but not very interesting either.

True enough. Then again, stupid as it may be, those stuff would still make a wonderful memory in the long run. Reminiscing on those good times with friends and laugh together about it is a pleasant experience. XD

It's probably one of the reasons why I like this show. I can relate to the characters, and it constantly reminds me of the stupid acts that I've done along with my friends. Others may have looked down upon us or gave us strange looks, but hey, the most important thing was that we had fun without seriously harming anyone around us. Furthermore, it was great a bonding moment at the same time. lol. I'm sure it's like that too for some of you.

I can't wait for the new characters, although I don't really have to wait too long since I just watched this (LATE) and the new episodes tomorrow...guess that's a good thing.

Episode 4... For a slice-of-life comedy series about highschool boys, it feels like any skit with highschool girls make everything just a little better Especially when said girls have their stereotype impression of boys destroyed


...Plus it's not everyday you get to see girls getting pwned in comedy I'm almost certain this episode would get people laughing as much as the first one did

If only my school had such things as cultural festivals. Well maybe it did but it was at an extremely small scale compared to Japanese schools.

That was hilarious indeed. The haunted house bit had me rolling too.
Spoiler for episode 4 specific:


The one after in the reception desk was just as hilarious. He had the last laugh!

That episode was better than episode 3 if anything. The fact that every members of the student council, but the prez, are thug faced, it would be like if Leonard Testarossa was the student council president of Onizuka's former highschool or Cromartie High. And then the haunted house bit, and the boy high prez's trolling. Finally, Nago being a Bro, and that bit after the ED.

Even though he doesn't seem to be in the main cast of boys, Karasawa is my favorite, he gets such great lines, and his actions are so cool. From his "You have good eyes, here sit" to throwing the candy.

I like how all the cast of characters, girl or boy, are somehow connected someway given a few degrees of separation.

Ok ... that was funny, and I mean REALLY funny.

And what a great job by Aoi Yuuki as the female school president - she really went to town with her VA'ing it seems, and somehow I could even feel the fact that she was grinning from ear to ear and desperately trying not to laugh the entire time.

The deadpan conversation was also exceedingly funny - as well as the culmination in transferring the blond delinquent looking character to sit next to "madame deadpan".

Must admit that I enjoyed seeing the girls get "pwned" for a change, but maybe that's just b/c I am a male?

Really. Such an excellent ep. Oh - and we actually got to see the eyes of some of the girl characters too.

8.5/10 vote for ep 4 from me.

I found episode 4 to be the funniest to date, the whole concept and execution of it was comedy gold. The boys school leaving a much better impression than the girls school, the "delinquent stare" when the girls stormed their council room, the "job switching" - it had me rolling all the way through. This is how you do comedy, the first show to make me laugh as much as I did since Seto no Hanayome.

Late comer to the series, it's been awhile since i last so hard. Too bad it's such a short series. I could relate to quite a lot of the situation since i spent quite a few years in an all boys school myself.

The student council president has the same VA as Katsura from Gintama/Athrun from Gundam Seed. That was a plus for me.

The job switching scene was hilarious and Yoshitake had the last laugh in the end. That was the best haunted house I have seen in a school anime to date.

Karasawa is now my favorite character, he's such a crafty guy lol. "Can you play some BGM." - lol and throwing sweets at the girls after the ending song. Priceless.

The number of legendary seiyuu in this episode is just preposterous. It's like a voice-acting Hall of Fame ceremony.

I normally get suspicious when shows like this have too much "plot", but this mostly worked for me. I especially loved the sequence with Yoshitake and Ikushima acting as greeters for the culture fest - that was so on-the-money it was scary. The whole episode beautifully satirizes the gap in understanding between high school boys and girls, and makes a very effective argument against single-gender high schools.

Again the "HS Girls are Funky" bit was priceless. Kobayashi Yuu and Saito Chiwa in berserker mode? Sign me up - and then when Karasawa - their perfectly deadpan foil - threw the chocolate... Oh, my.
