Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life
Plot: First year high school student Sakamoto isn’t just cool, he’s the coolest! Almost immediately after starting school, he began attracting everyone’s attention. The girls love him, and most of the boys resent him. There’s even a boy in the class who works as a model, but who is constantly upstaged by Sakamoto! No matter what tricks the other boys try to play on him, Sakamoto always manages to foil them with ease and grace. Though Sakamoto may seem cool and aloof, he helps others when asked, such as in the case of the boy in his class who was being constantly bullied. No matter what difficulties Sakamoto encounters, he moves through his high school life with confidence and class.
Impression: Good comedy anime is hard to find nowadays. Last season had Dagashi Kashi that was promising but it fell off very quickly and got boring at one point. But this season already showed that it has some really promising comedy shows to offer. Sakamoto Desu Ga? is definitely one of them. If you have read the manga, you know it will be good. Going by the sole episode that has been aired, this will be a totally character driven anime with Sakamoto as the main star. Sakamoto is not cool, he is not cooler but he is the coolest. Gifted with amazing looks, he has wits, physical ability and host of other talents. Over and all he is the perfect package guy.
Add some jealous classmates who are always on the lookout to tarnish his reputation, this anime will have you rolling on the floor in no time. Watch as Sakamoto with his coolness tries to overcome all the adversities and turn his enemies into admirers. The show doesn’t have a decent plot but it’s not supposed to have one. Sakamoto Desu Ga? is just mindless Japanese comedy and a bag of laughter.It will definitely be one of the most enjoyable shows of the season.
