  • Hilariously Adorable - a great show to watch on the go
    This is one of only a few 'micro episode' anime I have seen, but they've taken the concept and run with it to make something absolutely brilliant. There's about as much of a story line as you would expect from 7 minute intervals, and each episode follow mostly the same formula, but it totally works.

    Essentially, the guy does something stupid, the girl gets distracted trying to stop him (or ...

  • Creative and hilarious!
    At first I thought this would be a pointless show but after seeing other reviews I decided to watch and before I knew it I had watched every episode! I really wasn't expecting this to be such a funny show, it really is great if you want to watch something lighthearted and amusing. Definitely worth watching!

  • It Has Its Ups And Downs
    Believe me when I say this, this review is more personal than generic. Why I have to say this is because this series is based around a lot of comedic factors, and those factors tend to only work if they are geared toward the viewer. While I enjoyed most of these short episodes, there were some which I felt weren't that funny or good. Thus, I encourage people to try it and not give up on the first ...

    A Somewhat Amusing Anime.
    This has to be one of the few animes that is trying to be deliberately funny and trying too hard to do so, it does have its moments but its lacking in.. true comedy. It's very original it kinda makes me think whoever came up with this idea was probably doing something very similar while he/she was in school. I'll give this a 5/10, its average but not a bad anime.

    Kill your time by watching him kill his.
    8 minutes per episode is the perfect length for this series. The story...is......in fact there's no story. The opening is very catchy especially the full version. I thought Rumi would be an annoying narrator but she's perfect with all her reactions. Seki-kun is also perfect being a silent character leaving Rumi to do all the explaining. Great (mini) anime!

  • An emotional roller coaster. Very imaginative.
    I was enthralled after the first episode or two. the characters dont develop all that much, it is a pretty shallow laugh, but literally one of the funniest short form anime, or school day anime that Ive ever seen.
    Give it a shot, 10 minutes isn't too big a commitment to see if it's your kinda show. And if it is, it's relatively fast paced and easy to binge watch or space out in between long bouts ...

    I have very much enjoyed this show.
    The episodes for this anime are short, to the point, yet very entertaining. There are many nuances and themes from all types of anime's and its fun to see them displayed in this setting.

    Apparently this can be a nostalgic anime for those who knew this type of show some years back, but; not having watched those, I still found this extremely fun to watch and enjoy.

  • Amazing what brilliance can be shown in 7 minutes.
    Fantastic! This show is just great. From the opening theme to the ending theme. I genuinely looked forward to this show each week. It was like "7 minutes in heaven" :). The stories they were able to do in such a short time makes other shows that are longer be shamed. I hope they make another season (I do know they were making an OVA episode) because this show was great!

  • Funny, Simple and Sweet
    When a show doesnt need character development and is just a simple slice of school life, there really isn't a need for more. This is a charming, cute and funny show about the class mate who does nothing in class all day. It also has one of my favorite intro and outros.
