Ao Horie's father, a popular erotic fiction author, chose Ao's name because A stands for “apple” and O stands for “orgy”! Desperate to escape her father's legacy and get into a prestigious university, Ao devotes herself to studying instead of pursuing romance. She has no time for boys, but there's just one problem: Kijima, her handsome and popular classmate, just confessed his love to her! And to make matters worse, she can't stop thinking dirty thoughts about him! Looks like escaping her father's influence will be harder than she thought.

On the surface, Ao-chan Can’t Study looks like an indictment on the uselessness and general creepiness of the Baby Boomer generation, mainly because Ao-chan’s elderly father, a renowned author with tons of erotica novels under his belt (among other things, heh), is so obsessed with the state of his daughter’s virginity and how he can help her lose it. But take a closer look and you’ll find that – yes, while Ao-chan’s virginity is still the main focus of the show, Ao-chan gets a little more agency and realizes all by herself that, yes, despite her father’s intentions, all she really wants to do is fuck. But Ao-chan is a studious girl and a virtuous girl and a pretty sheltered girl too – I mean, if your horniness is the thing that’s distracting you from studying, then there are plenty of quick, easy fixes to resolve that little issue by yourself, know what I mean? But in the spirit of what this show thinks is comedy, Ao-chan takes the roundabout approach instead and attempts to solve her problems by blaming practically everybody else for her virginity. Hey, how’s that for a gag, huh? This exhausting push and pull within Ao-chan – who’s that boy, I really kinda wanna fuck him, how does one go about fucking him exactly, no wait I actually want to study, EEE KIJIMA’S SUCH A HENTAI GROSS, etc. – is the thing that gives life to this show’s humor. Ao-chan taking the initiative and beating the boy of her affections to the metaphorical punch makes her a tsundere of the reverse kind, and so, lends the show a new level of wit I wasn’t expecting. In short, Ao-chan thinks her crush wants to fuck her, gets all grossed out by the idea because she’s a virgin, then gets all intrigued by the idea later on, until finally, she decides to drop the pretense (and her panties) to try and fuck him herself. For science. Of course. And also because she might like the guy back too. Of course. It’s a very complicated thought process that gets sorted out easily in just under 15 minutes per episode and thank God for that. The humor can get tiring, and you’re never gonna root so hard for a couple to get together like Ao-chan and Kijima, but believe me when I say that this show’s greatest strength is that it knows how long it should run and what to cover in its limited timespan. But (oh yes, you know there was a but coming, especially for a show like this) this is, in the end, still an ecchi show, and so, gets so wrapped up in all the sex, that it forgets it was trying to be witty about the sex in the first place. It’s legitimately funny sometimes, but it’s also mainly crass, immature, and juvenile. Which is such a big shame, really. Too bad Ao-chan’s stupid daddy had to go cockblock the fun and ruin things for the rest of us. [This review was made for the Anime-Planet Secret Santa 2019 event. That OP? A hidden gem. But be careful not to get so sucked in to it, that you get duped into finishing all 12 episodes just to hear it over and over again.]

*WARNING!! This anime is still airing. Review may include a little spoilers and contain some peanuts. If you are aware of them, DON'T READ IT!Have fun while reading it :)"Usuall first impression, but not really..."Learning is one of the most important things in humanity's life. It helps us to get higher education, so you can find job easily. So I wanted to learn more too(it has varied results, but who cares). Sometimes it's quite impossible, because of diffrent things. For example family events, lack of comfort and simply you fell in love or something like that. Today we will focus on last subject: love and results of it doings. Fasten seatbelts guys it gonna be a good ride!"Opposites attract!"Let's begin with characters instead of story. It's very important for the public good. So we have two characters. Ao - she don't want anyting else except learning. There is one problem(or as I should say, two of them): her dad is famous erotic fiction author. Why is it problematic? Answer is simple: Dad has destructive impact to his daughter. He only talks about sex or things related to it. One song came to my mind, but we will get to it later... By the way, he is one of the best persons in that anime.Real opposite is Kijima - simple guy who fell in love with girl and wants to get her attention. He is innocent and kind of cute. It will lead to some awkward moments, but we talk about them later."Let's the show begin!!"Story seems like other romance comedies, but has few things different. Confession is at the first episode of anime.From that moment whole fun begins. A lot of awkward moment, when Ao is thinking about mating, but Kijima is just worried about her. Rammstein's new song came to my mind when I watched first episodes: "Sex". Nothing else fits better than it. Especially chours:                                                                    "Sex! Komm zu mir                                                             Meins ist deins und das in dir                                                                   Sex! Komm mit mir                                                     Denn besser widerlich als wieder nicht                                                                   Wir leben nur einmal                                                                   Wir lieben das Leben"Which is translated like this:                                                                   "Sex! Come to me                                                       Mine is yours and that inside of you                                                                    Sex! Come with me                                                       Rather disgusting than again nothing                                                                      We only live once                                                                          We love life"We will find out while watching it. Alright, let's move on! Other characters will be problematic for that couple too, but I won't tell you about them, it's a secret ;)By the way for Ao fits one more song: "Liebie ist für alle da" of the same band. You'll find out why while watching it too!Coming back to supporting figures. They will mainly bother Ao and Kijima, that's all you should know about them."Art for art"Ok, we talked about characters and briefly about story. Now it's time for things which tigers and real otaku's like the most: Music and animation! Unfortunately I won't tell you much, because they are average things in animes. Music isn't bad, but isn't good either. The same thing is with animation. Colors fits good for genre and music. Characters look great. Nothing to complain about, period."A corner of thoughts"In a nutshell: "Ao-chan Can't study" or "Midara na Ao-chan wa Benkyou ga Dekinai"(as you wish) is a good comedy romance. Relation of these two teenagers is quite rough, but normal in some moments. *I'm looking forward of the end of it! Must have for every fan of romances!!Does knowledge is  really power? You will find it out!Lives on his own way:Watashizashi
