Shomin Sample

For a video review, check out my Youtube channel. Link on my profile page.

This review will be a bit shorter than usual because I don’t have as much to tell about this anime than usual. Why I will tell you at the end of the review.


*Because the comedy in SS was hysterical at times. How the girls are so ignorant about the world and than stand in awe about everything new they learn about real life. Or how Kimito sometimes abuses the fact that the girls don’t know anything to make them do ridiculous things. I also have to give credit to SS for not relying entirely on ecchi comedy. I suspected that this would be a full on ecchi anime that used nothing else as comical relief. But SS used a variety of subjects to make comedy with.

*Another positive point was that there were some memorable characters in this anime with Hakua in the lead. Hakua being a pure class loli. I think a lot of people will remember her.

*And a last positive point was that the opening song of SS must be most catchy opening song of the past fall season. It’s not that it’s particularly good but it’s just stick into your head ones you hear it a few times.

And actually that are about all the specific points I have to mention of SS. I don’t really have any more real positive nor negative points. The reason therefor is that SS became exactly what I expected it to be. It didn’t have an deep storyline or sad drama or sweet romance. It became the comedy that I expected it would have been so that’s why I couldn’t find a lot of specific things I want to say about SS.

Before I jump to my conclusion I do wonder if there will be a second season of this anime since at the end of SS there are still some things that aren’t concluded yet. We still have Kimito’s friend who makes an appearance at the very end of the anime and also the thing with Kimito’s maid isn’t solved yet because there was definitely something going on there that we never got a full explanation for.


So as a conclusion, as I said earlier SS became exactly what I expected to be. It wasn’t the best anime I saw past fall season but it was still fun to watch. So I’m going to rate Shomin Sample at 3 stars. If you want to have a laugh give Shomin Sample a watch.
