  • This episode is laugh-out-loud funny!!

    This is one of the funniest episodes of the entire series. Kamiyama and Hayashida’s argument about how boring the school is while wacky things occur around them was played out perfectly. It is so obvious, yet there is something hilarious about it! To make it even funnier, when Takejo arrives, what he sees and his reports back to Setochi, are side-splitting. The outcome is even funnier! Takejo’s reaction to what’s going on around him; the other boys with Setochi’s responses to this; Kamiyama and Hayashida’s reaction to everything - these events tie together perfectly. I can guarantee that this episode will cause anyone to laugh out loud even once!!moreless
  • Ok, now to save on the animation budget, let's have this loooong static speech...

    This anime is one of the funniest tv shows I've EVER seen. It's very Excel saga-like, but IMO manages to top ES in a single aspect: its backstory is more interesting, maybe because the characters are more down-to-earth and likeable.



    But let's not forget the sheer brilliance of the gags, anyway. In fact, I found this episode's jokes so incredibly funny I would have given it an 11 or 12, if that was possibile. The opening part and the ending (the main story, in fact...) are indeed over the top as usual and quite funny (well, to be honest I didn't dig the "serious, silent guy in the meeting who is thinking about the silliest thing ever" scene too much; it was good but not as funny as the one found in episode 4), but the real LMAO part to me was the *extremely* long dialogue part in the middle. The display of visual gags and trick used to make the dialogue interesting was simply amazing; it poked fun at the most common tricks of cheap animation and verbose storytelling in a very brilliant way, and the dialogue revolving around the "nothing is really happening!" theme was dead on. I love when an episode manages to build itself around a single joke, milking it to the limit but without losing steam.



    I think this episode managed to do that, as the whole series does, most of the time. Thumbs up!!moreless
