I'll say this for B Gata H Kei's premise: it's… unique
Alright that may not strictly be true. How about this: it's a unique view on an incredibly common premise. If you want to know why, take a look at the page quote. Go on, I'll wait.
See? While the plot itself was nothing special, I actually thought that it was pretty well executed. Like I said above, it wasn't really the action or events that made it interesting, but the way
in which they were shown. Accidental Pervert
is stock comedy for any romance anime. When it's intentional on the girl's behalf though… that
makes it interesting.
Of course to balance this frighteningly original perspective, the male protagonist had to be a complete and total idiot
. Usually in these shows, my biggest gripe is with how the female cast are shown. This time, I wanted to punch Takashi Kosuda
in the face. Repeatedly
. Needless to say, he got No Sympathy
from me. Ever
On to animation. It was decent and consistent. That's about the best you can say about anime animation really; you can't really say too much about it at all, unless it's truly terrible. Okay then, how about voice acting? Pretty much the same. One might even say that it was average. No complaints there then.
With regards to the conclusion. It was a typical "happy ending". The main plot was brought to a close quite nicely and the threads that were left hanging were minor characters which were really only there as foils to the protagonists. Overall, a pretty standard finale, not entirely concluded per se
but very clear on where things are going to go from here and how the characters will get there.
Okay... so the plot is fairly common
save for an original perspective, the animation is decent, the voice acting is average and overall there are only a few minor complaints. Would I recommend it? For those who like this genre: go for it. Chances are you'll enjoy it. For those who don't like the genre: you won't get much out of this show as it's only noteworthy feature is its unique way of retelling a story we've all heard a thousand times, and sometimes that just isn't enough. Then again, sometimes it is
. Regardless, this show is far better than it sounds on paper, but make no mistake, it is no less weird.
