Guess who? Yes, the baron of over-opinionated, RandomRedneck, is here with another review. For this review, a tackle a show that starts as potentially promising parody, and just devolves into...something. This, is Ebiten. Let us begin, shall we?

STORY

This is a schoolgirl comedy. Story was never a vital point, and it shows. The first few episodes are basically "Let's parody (X show)" and frankly, it should have stayed that way. As it drags on, there is some convoluted thing about one character having a split personality or something, and they try to cram all the badly done drama into the last episode. Comedy to drama never works, especially for this show.

ANIMATION

Not much to say on the animation front. Not bad, not good, just...standard. So...yeah.

SOUND

Like animation, not much to say about the sound. The show doesn't even have an opening theme, and the ending theme is pretty meh J-Pop stuff. Background music doesn't stand out anymore than the ending theme. I doubt you'll even notice it half the time.

CHARACTERS

Characters are pretty typical, but nonetheless somewhat entertaining. We have Todoyama, your usual bossy club president, with the added bonus of being pretty much a sexual predator. Said sexual predatoring is aimed at Kanamori, a Fujoshi, and pretty much most entertaining character out of the bunch, on account of being a perv. Rikei, who is your typical stoic, is alright. Little bland, but good. Hasumi(The VP) is...just there. Doesn't really make much of an impact. And lastly, Oomori-Sensei, club adviser...and also a cat. An awesome, apparently perverted cat.

OVERALL

Again, it stared as promising parody, but tried to do too much, and just fell to average levels. If you wanna kill a little time with a typical schoolgirl show, try something else. If you want weirdness and schoolgirls, try this show. That is all. Thank you.

Yours truly,

RandomRedneck.

"Let's begin, shall we?" I'm sensing a "Mark Plier" fan, am I right?

Your review is right on the money. Whole anime sorta felt forced to me. I was "gagging" on the jokes the show tried to cram down my throat. It was in your face too much with BAM - fan service or BAM - kawaii moment that really didn't fit into the anime's flow.
