She is Hanabatake Yoshiko, and she's an idiot through and through. She loves bananas, and she loves her childhood friend Akkun.
Its hard to rate a show like this because it boils down to this: If you like juxtaposition humor you will love this show. If you dont like or dont understand juxtapositon humor you will hate it. This show is trash, but its trash in a way that is amazingly good. The plots are super generic but told in such an over the top and spontanious manner that it takes what would be otherwise generic pure trash anime and makes it funny and amazing. If you cant appreciate taking generic trash then spontaniously turning it on its head then you will just see this show as trash. The key to good juxtaposition humor is not just random humor, but well timed and well associated humor. Random for random sake rarely works but what Aho-Girl excels at is making a random that is just planned enough that it is both funny and weird at the same time. Juxtaposition humor is hard to master, but Aho-Girl is an anime that shows just how it its done. You need no more proof then to watch its ever changing openings to see how it turns the mundane into unexpected.
Aho-girl is a comedy, a hilarious comedy. Yoshiko is a beyond help idiot who has no hope in the future thus staying alongside her childhood friend "A-kun" Akuru Akutsu. Yoshiko is an example of what society doesn't want you to be, a banana obsessed idiot. I find her shenanigans hilarious, it is supposed to be a comedy after all. I Yoshiko is unpredictable which makes it even funnier since you never know what she will do. Akutsu has no choice but to put up with Yoshiko and try to shape her into a human capable of going out to society. I see Aho-girl as a great "easy to binge watch" anime plus if you're looking for some good comedy, Aho-girl will surely do the thing.
Diomedea’s 2017 high school comedy is extremely silly, very, very funny, and just really, really good. There isn’t much to it either. The entire gag is based around a teenage girl being really, really stupid – being quite self-aware of it and not caring. This is Yoshiko Hanabatake. Yoshiko is like an Illumination Entertainment’s Minion. Funny, cute and loves bananas. She is utterly adorable, naive, friendly, yet dumb as a box of rocks. Her redeeming feature is her joyous personality and an uncanny ability to turn people to her point of view. In contrast there is the boy next door Akuru Akutsu who is her age and they sit together in class. He has taken Yoshiko under his wing, gets her out of bed and to school in the morning. He is like some guardian angel that tries to curb her enthusiasm and keep her out of trouble. It is a role he plays quite begrudgingly. Unlike Yoshiko he is studious and clever. Yoshiko’s mum Yoshie has hatched a “retirement plan” that will get her useless daughter out of the family home: it involves marrying her off to poor Akuru. To do this she has to fend off any other girl who comes close to him – such as classmates Sayaka and Fuki. Yoshiko’s childlike innocence, and ability to overlook other character’s meanness towards her, propels this story along at a fair rate of knots. She can win anyone over with her idiocy. She really loves Akuru who she calls ‘A-chan’. She is like a big adorable puppy dog who just wants to play with you. Her interaction with the three gyaru classmates leads to a three-day hide-and-seek session. They don’t want her attention at first but she just blasts through their objections with her bottomless enthusiasm until they end up hanging out together. The audience is waiting for some kind of blossoming of feeling in Akuru for his idiotic neighbour. Yet, he remains quite cold, not only to Yoshiko, but also to any girl who pays attention to him. It is all very watchable and remarkably funny. Episodes are quite short at less than 15 minutes each so the whole thing flies by. All together far funnier and entertaining than words can describe.
