Gakuen Babysitters: After Thoughts

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Out of all the winter season animes, this is the only anime (excluding the shorts) I had finished watching. Watching all the winter animes I want to watch is quite hard nowadays cuz of my work and time scheduling. Another thing, I am also watching some old animes from my back-log. Hehehe.
Anyway, here’s my thoughts on this cute slice-of-life about boys and little kids:

My Thoughts:

I would admit, I didn’t expect I would like this anime. Flower boys babysitting little cute kids?? Uuuhhhhh….not my cup of tea. But after seeing the first few episodes, oh damn, I am so into this.

Gakuen babysitters is a cute, simple, slice-of-life anime that I didn’t I needed in my life. This anime gives me fluffy feelings I thought I could only feel whenever I watch moe animes. Its so….CUTE!!! Especially the little kids. Oh man, I never knew animated little kids would be this very cute creatures I want to treasure forever. They are tooo cute to be true. Not only them, but also the older characters as well, were very very likeable. I really like how well the characters interact with each other. My definite favorite would be Kashima Ryuuchi and Inomata Maria. Kashima is so kind and very caring, I want to take care of him and be his friend, while Inomata Maria is best girl. Even though she is a tsundere, I really really like her. She’s so precious and innocent, I want to protect her. LEL.


The story overall, is simple. Its easy to understand but it also have a deep emotional undertones. The main characters just lost their parents, they lost their home, their haven, their family. Seeing the siblings doing their best to live their life without their parents were both sad and hopeful. And seeing that the very end they were able to gain a new family, its so heartwarming and I can’t help to shed a bit some tears. They are not lonely anymore, they are surrounded by people who care and love them. Aaawwwwwwhhhhhh..

Overall, this series is very easy to watch and enjoyable too. Its also very heartwarming and could tug your heartstrings in different ways you could never imagine. Definitely recommend this to everyone who wants to watch a lighthearted series to binge-watch.

Thanks for reading.
