Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to

Yuuki Aito is a perverted and hapless author of ecchi manga. Under pressure from his hot-tempered editor, Miharu, Yuuki works alongside his assistants, the long-suffering Ashisu and the enthusiastic Rinna, to finish his manuscript on time. But with Miharu berating Yuuki for taking porn breaks and his insatiable lust for panties, and the underwear-loving mangaka panicking over every ecchi dilemma he faces, keeping his manga out of the bottom of the weekly rankings will be a difficult task…

It is said that there are four types of people in the world; those that know and know that they know, those that know and don't know that they know, those don't know and know that they don't know and those that don't know and don't know that they don't know. It's clear right from the start of this series that the main character is, in the language of the show, a pervert with an insatiable fetish for women's undergarments. And if that truth is enough to turn your head in disinterest or disgust, this is probably an anime for you to skip. But while the viewer is fully aware of Aito's proclivities, there's something a bit different about him than can be found in many other stories with characters like him. He is oblivious to his tendencies and how they effect those around him. Stated differently, he doesn't know and doesn't seem to know that he doesn't know. For those not ready to dismiss this story by way of first impressions, there are some good laughs and endearing moments to enjoy. As Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to develops and Aito becomes surrounded by cute female characters, the viewer wonders why and how each tolerates his behavior. The series is composed of 12 episodes, 13 minutes each, and most of the episodes themselves are composed of 3 mini-stories. Knowing this, the viewer also wonders if it's possible to answer those questions in such a short form. One of the show's strengths is its pace. The comedic timing is aided by it's quick speed. Another strength is that though there isn't much time to tell the whole story given the format, somehow almost all of the character's backstories and motivations are revealed by the end of the series. And the best stories tend to feature characters that start at one place and transform over time. Almost all of the characters in this story do grow in one way or another which is nice to see. Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to is good for what it is; a light, over-the-top comedy about an oblivious male manga artist obsessed with panties and his team of female assistants who stand by him despite his flaws told in a rapid fashion that for those who don't object to the subject matter may take you by surprise. There is more to almost every character than one would presume by way of first impressions and for those who stick with it, the story has a pleasant charm. For those willing to give the show a try, set upon watching the first 6 episodes for a better impression of the series. If you (still) hate it by then, let it go. If you appreciate it it for what it is, you'll be satisfied by how the show wraps up.

  Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers- This review is for Mangaka-san to Assistant-san, this is about a guy who loves drawing manga, the only problem is that he is obsessed with drawing female pants, slightly disturbing but oh well. It is a short episode series about this artist and his (female) assistants. And we all know how that is going to turn out, a complete pervert in a room with a bunch of ‘cute’ women drawing slightly ecchi manga, what’s that all about. The story is pretty simple it is just this artist’s everyday life as a mangaka and how he gets through his life. In the end pretty basic but entertaining, but really really disturbing in some areas….wouldn‘t recommend it very much.   The animation was average, the opening; ending and main animation wasn’t anything outside of the ordinary, which again is probably what I would expect. The music was also average, not so amazing, but like any anime the opening was slightly better than the ending. The characters voices were alright, they clearly tried to make as many girls as cute as possible using their voices. They matched these voices with the designs quite well though.   So overall this anime was just under-average, the score I have given it I believe is reasonable for the type of anime it is and there really isn’t much to say about it. I say if you want a light Ecchi then here you are….disturbing. Anyway this ends another one of my short reviews, thank you for reading. ~AngelBeatsYui~

This is they story of a pervert manga artist who is obsessed with pants. Yes pants. This was quite funny at first but quickly got old. The story stayed pretty much the same throughout, although it was unique the characters never seemed to make any progress with anything. However I liked the idea of it being about a manga artist and thought it was very unique. Its a real shame the story was ruined by countless comedy and ecchi moments. However if your a die hard light ecchi fan, this anime really pays of when it comes to fan service. For an ecchi type anime I thought the animation was brilliant, this is because it was extremely unique , brightly coloured and nice to look at!  This anime's second redeeming quality was its music. I usually find the quality of sound in ecchi themed anime to be better than that of other genres and Mangaka did not fail to dissapoint. The opining was fast paced and really lively and the songs lyrics really helped sell the anime. Yet it didn't get 10/10 as it is not really memorable or catchy compared to songs from anime like AngelBeats. The characters where your typical ecchi/harem style. Each had a backstory (which is good) but these often lacked depth or anything really of interest as to set up moments for ecchi pants themed events to happen. I feel like once you see the character you know them. They don't change, happy is happy angry will be angry and perverted perverted.In conclusion its your average echhi anime so it gets 5/10. For a light ecchi it has good fan service and is quite funny. It is good in its animation and music but isn't really that interesting otherwise.
