Yes, school life comedy is a somewhat saturated genre. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun and clever.
For a show whose director had a lot of non-directing experience on her resume, Yuyushiki was a fairly solid playful comedy. The animation wasn’t exceptional, but it was clean and at least made some attempts to swap up camera angles (though most of those were walking-legs shots) to keep scenes from getting too typical. The jokes were typical school-life situational comedy, but varied enough within those boundaries to remain engaging for 20 minutes. The run at the end, where the girls were messing around with random facts on google, did a pretty good job representing what computer labs actually get used for. This one’s not all that special, though, so I’m keeping it on a week-by-week basis.
