Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro: Quick Thoughts

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s another entry from the previous anime season, this time its all about slice-of-life comedy animes.
I didn’t expect I would get to enjoy two SoL Comedy animes. Both Asobi Asobase & Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro gave endless laugh and enjoyment every week. For now, let me share to you my thoughts about the lesser SoL Comedy anime, Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro.

Synopsis: This is a story of a nerdy bookworm girl on her way to school, and yes, that’s the entire premise, as she’s not getting to school any time soon. Taking her “usual” route to school, it becomes an increasingly unusual adventure, and all the more ridiculous as it carries on. It takes an unpleasant sentiment many can empathize with, the feeling of tardiness, and brings humor to it—making it a hilarious situation to look back upon. (MAL)

When I first saw this anime, I literally have no expectations. The synopsis is so weird and uninteresting, I really had no intentions of watching it. But to live up to my code, “watch everything then drop later”, I still watch it and bruh, thank God I did.

Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro is really funny. I never thought the travel to school would be that hilarious. It’s literally about a high school girl on her way to school. LOL.

Well, its not really only that. The story pretty much tried to push the boundaries of comedy to its peak by its high meta and surreal scenarios. They twist mundane moments into bizarre scenarios that even I couldn’t imagine, and damn, they are really hilarious. Everything in this anime is crazy. Really crazy, but I really really like it.

The characters didn’t disappoint. With an already crazy plot, the characters are in another level of craziness. What made me like them so much is the fact that all of them are not your typical shallow naime characters that you constantly see on shows, but each one of them have layers of personalities that ranges from bad to worse. They definitely made this series alot more funnier with their expressions and reactions to the bizarre scenarios they’ve encountered. Along with Asobi Asobase, I had collected a huge bunch of screenshots, its that good. XD

For the art and animation, the series definitely looked cheap compared to its fellow summer animes. But it does add some unique flavor to the anime. Though, I am not much of a fan of the extreme blushing of the characters. Even though its unnecessary, the lead characters are still blushing. Wut? Other than that, I’m totally okay with everything.

Overall, this series is really fun to watch. It definitely gave me alot of face palms and laughs watching this show. I also liked the way they end the whole series, they made it looked like a real live-action series with the appearance of production crews and some epic fail cuts of the scenes from the series. Damn, that was a nice touch.

I’m not really hoping for season 2, but it would be nice to have one.
That is all.
Thanks for reading!!

    This one was kind of all over in terms of quality. I enjoyed it though, especially the, “bloopers” at the end XD
