Kabukibu!

Mar 16, 2021

I decided to write a review for this show because it is something of a hidden gem. I must warn you though that this isn't for everyone. You won't like this show if you want a lot of action and explosions. There are no panty shots or aliens.

The story moves rather slowly. Think slice of life. If you have an appreciation for the arts or want to learn about classical Japanese culture, this is the show for you.  It's about kabuki, a performance art sort of like opera.

The show is partly educational but I didn't find it boring. I was swept away by the MCs enthusiasm and love for the old art form.   I sort of got the impression that it's an art form on the wane because they use archaic language that few people understand. Think Shakespeare, but Japanese. The club puts on performances of kabuki, which are part of the episodes and those are my favorites.

The first couple episodes are uneven. The last episodes that feature the performances are the best.  This is a fun, relaxing introduction to a wonderful art form and I finished the show in one night.
