Who needs dialog when you're this cute? The beautiful (but unlucky) Momoko, the cool, collected Shibumi, and the refreshingly innocent Mayumi star in a "silent manga." No speeches, no dialog! Just pictures, sound effects, and three high school girls living their daily lives.
A slice of life about 3 high school girls who act more like grade school girls. There is no dialogue but plenty of sound effects and laughter. Oddly enough the girls mouths move on occasion but never any dialogue. I gave it an extra star because all the episodes are under 5 minutes in length, which is about all I could stomach. I would have dropped it, had the episodes been longer. I cannot recommend it, unless you want to get an image of a bad episode off your history que in Crunchyroll, but you should do the dishes or something, while it is playing.
Studio Seven brought “Joshi Kausei” to our screens in 2019 from the comedy manga by Ken Wakai. Episodes are just 3 minutes long whilst the one (and only) season lasted just 12 episodes. Each is self-contained as the story has no overall arc. It tells of the adventures of three school girls relayed free of any dialogue. This is visual humour, however, is not silent as the voice cast get to giggle their way through each show. The humour is irreverent and occasionally pretty silly. The three characters are quite distinctive: Momoko Futo is care-free, pretty, kind but a bit air-headed. Shibumi Shibusawa is smart, serious and strait-laced. Mayumi Furui is the new girl, short and caring. Unlike similar shows we do get to explore a little of the backstory of how the girls became friends as well as events that happened in junior school. Other than this, the stories are relatively straight-forward slice of life. The girls draw pictures of steamed up windows, shelter from the rain or ride on trains. It is all quite simple but delightfully so. It doesn’t need to be sophisticated as it doesn’t have time to. Yet is exudes charm and wit easily. One highlight is the episode when the girls come across an abandoned skateboard on the way home from school. Each get to have a go on it with the manner of riding reflecting each girl’s personality. Momoko rides with confidence, Shibumi won’t get on unless her friends join her whilst little Mayumi is scared and lies flat whilst Momoko pushes her. The episode closes with Momoko leaving a small jar filled with a couple of flowers on the skateboard. Well written, wonderful and joyous.
What was this? This anime is more of a standard Slice of Life. There is nothing too much, nothing innovative, just high school girls acting like they are in elementary school. Seriously, this type of anime is weird. There is no story, just girls being stupid on all 12 EPs and more: THERE'S JUST 3 minutes on all EPs. A waste of time and life. I don't have much to comment on, as the anime has nothing interesting and relevant:
