    The OP theme trolls you about the Show's intent
    To explain Asobi Asobase is very hard to talk about, because the Comedy is very manic, but on point, featuring hilarious reactions that are Meme-worthy.

    There really is no true plot to AA, only for the 3 Girls to discuss about life, while having no clue about the topics they are discussing. But, aside from the comedy, there are a lot of callbacks to the previous episodes, keeping ...

    Monty Python + Salvador Dali + Frank Zappa + illicit drugs = Asobi Asobase
    Without question, the single most amazingly absurdist series I have ever seen.

    This is laugh-out-loud funny, the kind that makes your jaw hurt. There is no single gag or forumla. Each vignette is wholly self-contained and utterly insane. My favorite so far has got to be Puppets from Episode 3.

    If this doesn't make you laugh, you have been infected with bad humor genes by an alien race bent ...

    my body is ready. this is amazing
    if you enjoy absurdist humour, you will appreciate this show. i look forward to many more episodes of this.
    i have no idea about a story, but every single bit is hilarious. highly recommended for a laugh. i do indulge in "garbage anime" on the regular, and was surpried by this refreshing, lighthearted sillinesss.

    Very Funny Series with Great Characters
    This series is great so far - the face poses and comedic timing are amazing, and the voice acting is top-notch. Each segment is 5 or so minutes long, so you get little bite-sized scenarios and each one is better than the last. Highly recommended if you feel like laughing.

    Japanese Humor at its Finest
    TLDR: A very high quality comedy anime that wont disappoint!

    First things first, this is a comedy. If youre looking for serious drama or cutesy pootsy waifu slice of life, this isnt for you. Only 2 episodes in and this is Grade A 10/10 Japanese slapstick comedy at its finest. If you like shows like Nichijou, Gintama, Azumanga Daioh, or the recent Hinamatsuri, you are going to ...

    Great, random comedy!
    Has a Nichijou feel to it and I loved that series!
    Slapstick, random, crazy comedy all the way. Not just a cutesy, high school girls slice of life series (although I watch plenty of those too).
    PS. I think this is my 1st review ever - what's up with the minimum length requirement?

    Surprisingly Hilarious
    When the new anime season starts, I usually try to check out the first episode of new shows if I hear people talking about them. I heard people talking about Asobi Asobase, so I checked it out. From the cover art, it looked like a lighthearted sweet show about three friends. Boy was I misled. This show is pure comedy gold. The mellow art style definitely led me to be surprised by the contrasting ...

    Clearly I'm not the target audience....
    None of it was funny, none of the characters are likeable. So boring. Sat through 2 episodes hoping it would get better but I realized this is just one of those short skits type things. The humour is just over exaggerated characters and ugly faces. Not going to keep watching, so this review is only for the first 2 episodes.

    Don't be decieved by this anime.
    The problem I have with this anime is one of expectations. No matter how you look at the art for this series it looks like it would be a light-hearted slice of life of cute girls doing cute things. Even the opening makes it look like that. But no, it is most certainly not that. It is an over the top ridiculous slapstick comedy. If you like that sort of thing, then maybe you'll love this ...

    When plaing the foreigner card goes wrong
    (Written after the first episode, subject to change!)

    Sometimes playing the foreigner card is handy and helps you get out of all sorts of situations, but in this case Olivia ends up being asked to teach English (which btw she should have seen coming) even though she doesn't really speak it.

    The story follows three girls in lighthearted and funny shorts, and I'm curious the see how ...
