Boooooooobiiiiiiies. That's what this anime is about. Jiggle jiggle left and right, I'd crush you with boobies if we were to fight. My shirt's too tight but that's ok, it really only gets in the way! Bouncy bouncy- up and down they go, isn't there anything more to this show? I'd say there was but that'd be a lie, if my boobs were that big I'd surely die. Grotesque and huge they take up the screen, they weigh so much she walks with a lean....

Ugh.

This anime is designed for salarymen who want to come home after an exhausting shift to watch shorts about what their day could have been like if every woman they met had giant breasts.  Sure, it would be boring to watch a bunch of people in an office writing reports, but what if one of the coworkers had giant breasts that accidentally hit a keyboard button? And we all hate going to the gym, but maybe it would be okay if a busty beauty did sit ups, reverse sit ups, and butterfly exercises! Sure, riding the train is bland, but can you imagine if instead of just going to the "women only" car during rush hour, a buxom teenager pathalogically stood in front of you with her breasts pressed against your lower abdomen?

I don't mind titillation--otherwise why try the show--but the formula here is insulting, even to my lowest instincts.

Didn't have high expectatins going in, but was surprisingly entertained! The animatino isn't anything to look at, but this short anime actually made me laugh a few times which is very rare! It has basic but not boring characters, good comedic timing, and a romance that is gentle with the viewer. There are a lot of boob shots but they usually serve a purpose in the story so its not obnoxious! For such a short series, it is definitely worth a watch.

PS: Watch the OVAs too!

One for the oppai fans this one. It strongly resembles a cross between “Ganbare, Douki-chan” (AtelierPontdarc 2021) and “Higehiro” (Project No.9 2021). The five-minute episodes are based upon the drawings of Kiseki Himura that had been originally posted only on Twitter. The key concept is built around the regular Monday meeting between a young office worker and a high school girl (Ai) on their commutes to work & school. Season one covers the deepening of their friendship after their initial chance encounter. Their relationship is platonic but her beauty and charm makes him wish that he had had a girlfriend like that when he was her age. She cares for him and flirts a little to raise a smile to cheer up his Monday mornings. In return he chaperones her on her journey. That is the core of this gentle tale however the audience soon learns that every woman this chap meets has enormous breasts. One such girl is his close office colleague who is seeking to get closer to the him. In typical anime-fashion our hero keeps her at arm’s length and doesn’t seem to get the message.

The whole affair is charming if a little silly. The story is dominated by women’s breasts. The tokens of Ai’s affections for our office worker are the buttons from the shirts that keep popping off due to the expansion of her “cushioning” as she calls it. This may well be the point but in some ways it trivialises what could be a more interesting study. This is a unique Japanese cultural phenomenon. The combination of enormous-boob jokes, teenage under-age girls and their inappropriate relationships with older men, are not something that would be accepted on western shores. Titillation outside of Japan was always tinged with a sense of Catholic-guilt. You can joke about boobs to your hearts content but not teenage girls. The nearest equivalent maybe the St Trinians school girl tradition but this would be deemed too politically incorrect if not done without suitable irony and loads of girl-power. Right-on. It remains unclear if “Tawawa on Monday” is intended to be ironic or some kind of pervy soft porn. Kiseki Himura’s intention was to provide a pick-me-up for people on their Monday morning commute to work. As such it has all the depth of a pancake. It is really cheeky, unsuitable for family viewing and enjoys highly questionable content. Yet there is nothing displeasing about Season One. Morality aside “Tawawa on Monday” is a lot of fun to watch. If you like pretty teenage girls with ample curviness then this is for you. Mostly harmless.

This is my personal review and maybe a bit biased to my own preferences. Also, only read the anime if you have watched both S1 and S2 as I will review it all together here.

Ok so first things first, this is a great anime. I had low expectations reading the inital reviews and seeing 1 and 2 stars as their ratings but ratings do vary person to person and it's fine. If you love echhi animes, you'll simply love it.

You'll get to experience 3 different stories in this anime(Be aware, I mean both the seasons when I'm mentioning anime & by stories, I mean the 3 main relationships.)

I wish that it had more ep's with Ai chan but it is what it is. All the characters are beautiful and how the story unfolds is great. Along with the "ecchi" stuff, bouncy shots and what not.... they are fun but this anime also shows the struggle of teen girls with larger breasts. It also features a Student-Teacher relationship along with a bit of humour and fun. So it's basically all you want from a ecchi anime. You'll really get attached to all the characters, they look so stunning!
