Manga / My Girlfriend is Shobitch

Go To

My Girlfriend is Shobitch (Boku no Kanojo ga Majime Sugiru Shojo Bicchi na Ken) is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Namiru Matsumoto. It was serialized online on Niconico Seiga from July 2015 to September 2019. An anime television series adaptation by Diomedea and Studio Blanc originally aired from October 12 to December 13, 2017.

When high school student Haruka Shinozaki confesses his feelings to the beautiful and aloof class representative, Akiho Kosaka, the last thing he expected was for her to say "yes." Like everything else in her diligent life, Kosaka takes dating quite seriously. In an effort to be a good girlfriend, Kosaka decides to meticulously study (and bluntly suggest) all manner of ways to keep Shinozaki sexually satisfied… in the theoretical sense, that is. This innocently lewd relationship is only just beginning!

My Girlfriend is Shobitch contains examples of:

  • Alliterative Name: Sora Shizumori
  • Ambiguously Bi: Rina previously attended an all-girl school and could only find romance with other girls, which is why she transferred to Haruka's school.
  • Animal-Eared Headband: Kanata wears an Animal-Eared Hood more accurately. Cat ears.
  • Animal Lover: Rina owns two dogs, Butter and Margarine, whom she regards like human beings.
  • Artistic License – Child Labor Laws: Misaki is the same age as Kanata, yet works part-time in an ice cream shop.
  • Big "NO!": Natsuo and Haruka in unison, after Akiho's mother suggests that they may be interested in each other.
  • Brother–Sister Incest: Despite being Haruka's sister, Kanata's just as interested in him as the other girls are.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Although she makes several playful and obvious allusions toward him, Shizuku is too shy to take the initiative when things have a chance to get serious.
    • Haruka in the first episode had an elaborate, passionate speech all prepared for Akiho, but when it was time for her to hear it, he locked up and forgot the speech... managing to only blurt out nervously "I like you! Please go out with me!"
  • Class Representative: Akiho, as Haruka points out in his description of her in the first episode.
  • The Determinator: Akiho. Just like every school subject she's tackled, she will meticulously research all topics on relationships - even those deemed inappropriate for her age - in her laser-focused goal to be the perfect girlfriend for Haruka.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything? / Double Entendre: It would be easier to list the scenes that do not use these tropes.
  • Don't Explain the Joke: Inverted. The English translations will, from time to time, contain special captions explaining why certain terms or phrases are double entendres to the Japanese community.
    • In episode 3, Haruka meets Akiho's parents, and they have oyakodon for lunch, literally translated as "mother and child bowl", and the caption explains it also refers to a type of certain sex act.
    • In episode 10, Haruka's struggling with his math homework. Akiho helps him out by opening her notebook to reveal two "pi" symbols. Cue caption explaining that "pi-pi" is Japanese slang for boobs.
  • Entitled to Have You: Kanata considers herself the only girl cute enough to be Haruka's girlfriend.
  • Eyes Out of Sight: Sora Shizumori, whose eyes are always covered with her bangs.
  • Generation Xerox: Akiho's mother is pretty much exactly like her, dirty mind and all. (Which explains where Akiho gets her ideas from.) Akiho's father has about the same reactions Haruka does, too.
  • Growling Gut: Rina's stomach growls in episode 5.
  • Incompatible Orientation: Seiya receives a great amount of attention from girls in his school. Unfortunately for them, he doesn't swing that way.
  • Intentionally Awkward Title: Each episode has one of these. Examples: "No, Don't Open It So Wide, Please..."; "Just Whip It Out Now! ...Can I Say That?"; "It Tore, What Do I Do?"; "I-I'm Not Saying You Can Take It That Far!"
  • Like Brother and Sister: How Haruka sees Shizuku. Shizuku isn't happy about it.
  • Narcissist: Seiya enjoys the romantic attention of nearly every girl in school, despite not being into them.
  • Nipple and Dimed: There is a short scene in the opening titles where the female characters are nude atop a dessert cake, but the privates are either not visible or covered up by cream.
    • Averted in the bonus OVA during the "escape bedroom" segment. At one point Akiho ends up stark naked, visible nipples and all.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: Subverted. In episode 3, Akiho and Haruka go on a date, which includes a movie featuring a steamy sex scene. During that scene, Akiho is... carefully observing the act and taking notes in her notebook.
  • Not What I Signed on For: When Akiho agrees to be Haruka's girlfriend, he finds out some things about her which he has some trouble getting used to.
  • Once an Episode: There's a post-credits gag, followed by a sneak-preview scene from the Blu-ray-only OVA.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Fuyumi and Akiho. They share the same color hair and facial features.
    • Natsuo even resembles an older Haruka, even though there's no blood relation at all.
  • Tastes Better Than It Looks: Subverted when Akiho is trying to complete a cooking assignment in class to impress Haruka (her boyfriend) and makes a horrific-looking mess. Her friend Misaki volunteers to test it and gushes that it's very good to Akiho's delight. However, as soon as Akiho walks away, a sickly Misaki begs Haruka to never let Akiho know about "her condition", whereupon she keels over and her spirit ascends to the heavens.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Aoi stays long after closing hours in the infirmary to receive and get "entertained" by selected male students.
  • Unwanted Harem: Haruka has a grand total of 7 girls and 1 guy interested in him.
