Hajimete-no-Gal
Junichi and his gal Yame-san

I love the show My First Girlfriend is a Gal or Hajimete no Gal in Japanese. It’s original creator and manga writer is Meguru Ueno. The anime is produced by Joutarou Ishigami and Ichigo Yamada. The animation studio behind it is NAZ, which isn’t known for too much. Probably, their biggest production is out of their realm sort of see here. The show is a harem type slice of life show, but the spin in the show is that the main character Junichi Hashiba brings along his three friends into the drama. The four guys happen to all be virgins it’s almost like American Pie as an anime, picture that.

I love the show immensely, at the end of the show it kind of has some morals and life lessons to learn. There’s one thing that I can’t understand about this show though, and I’m really looking for a change. It is the fat virgin guy Minoru Junichi’s friend, that is infatuated with young girls. As a first time joke I thought it was funny and “Oh, this is anime.” As the show progresses though he gets worse, he eludes to liking young elementary pre-school girls.

 

You should watch the show if you care, because I don’t want to spoil for anyone. All of Junichi’s friends have perverted ways, but now Minoru is starting to really bother me. Even the friends are like we don’t really understand him and somethings wrong with you. Here in the United States of course that is something that’s very taboo. He’s not the focus of the show, but when his punchline scenes come I’m really shocked each time. It’s a very “Whoa,” moment. Overall, I love the show but for this one character I’m looking for some progression. Hopefully, I won’t become completely turned off by the show for this one character and his scenes.

Hey, you know the drill I jump on all the anime coming straight outta Japan. As a lover of everything anime I just can’t help myself. I’m all SUB for life. Sorry, you Dubbers nothing against you I just know the facts. Back to the matter at hand; have you looked at the shows coming out for this Summer season of anime?

Katsugeki Touken Ranbu

There isn’t a good variety of Genre this season it’s almost horrible. There’s for the most part good animation, drawing, and story. But these shows just aren’t good enough to entertain someone. This might be the off-season for anime, I haven’t seen an off-season like this in a long time. There’s a handful of watchable, dare I say entertaining shows.

Now, I could just be feeling this way because of the BLOCKBUSTER spring season we just came out of for anime. I mean all the great debuts: Attack on Titan Season 2, DB Super, Season 2 of My Hero Academia, Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (Sequel to Genesis), Boruto: Next Gen, etc… I mean an explosive spring anime. Explosive, mixed genres, entertainment packed anime.

Some of my picks out of this Summer Season: Hajimete no Gal; Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni.; Katsugeki Touken Ranbu, Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun; Knight’s & Magic; Princess Principal; Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e; Dive!! Out of those, the dope shows are Katsugeki Touken Ranbu, Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e and Princess Principal to me anyway. Everything else is just ehhh….  decent to watch. At least we’re stilling getting the rest of the episodes of some of the better shows from the spring season to fill the gap. Leave me a comment if you feel different or you have something to add.
