Seitokai Yakuindomo – first impressions

July 6, 2010 at 10:15 am 10 comments

“I also had a habit of touching my butt but somehow I managed to hold it back.”

The school council

Seitokai Yakuindomo: think Seitokai no Ichizon, but with less parody and a more adult gag-filled twist. Seitokai Yakuindomo proves to be at least a quick-paced watch that’s decent if you don’t mind the pretty unsubtle sex jokes.

I said unsubtle, right?

It’s lame how they keep on repeating their jokes. Yes, we get it. Suzu is small. Yes, we get it. The female to male ratio in this school is 524:28. Many of the adult-themed jokes themselves aren’t rofl-worthy themselves, but most manage to at least put a smile on your dial.

O_O

The characters in this anime are pretty dull. You have your President Shino who’s a pretty unsubtle pervert. The secretary Aria is your usual pretty girl with a sincere veneer (not quite) hiding her closet perversion. Suzu is Nagi from Hayate the Combat Butler with a different seiyuu. The male lead is *surprise surprise* just a ‘normal’ guy.

Suzu's slight stature - only matched by her ability to overcompensate

Of course what sets this series apart from many 4-koma anime-adaptions is its animation. GoHands clearly has skill and style, and the result here is a really nice looking Ousai Private Academy. The part where the camera pans through the whole school is wonderfully executed. The super-deformed segments are also well-excuted. Whether this enough to keep me watching is another thing entirely.

OP: What we see is pretty racy. The tune sucks.

ED: Hey, I actually enjoyed this ED! The moments of bullet-speed singing are a constant reminder of the anime’s pace.

Suzu's mimicking squid.

    it felt like i was watching B Gata H Kei and Seitokai no Ichizon at the same time

    B Gata H Kei = comedy that was perverted
    Seitokai no Ichizon = comedic student council

    B Gata H Kei + Seitokai no Ichizon = a student council that is perverted = Seitokai Yakuindomo = fucking greatness (as of ep 1)

    also, how and why are there already bad reviews for the show? its only one ep in… i know everyone is entitled to their opinion, but if you did not find that ep at least somewhat amusing, then your opinion is wrong (imo)

    So many perverted jokes in this series, which I guess is what they’re going for. It really feels like Seitokai no Ichizon, but I don’t find the characters here as interesting as those in Seitokai no Ichizon.

    completely agree with you Reltair. Seitokai no Ichizon had great humour and all the characters were interesting in their own special way. I guess this is targeting a different audience so it’s kinda expected that the humour would be more perverted.
