The story seems to me like a love triangle between Fumino and Uruka though.

Rizu and Sensei so far seem to me like joke characters. That is that they are used primarily to carry out certain ridiculous situations and that’s about it.

Azumi-senpai or whatever her name is seems like a mentor type character. Maybe a bit like Ami from Toradora.

Where Uruka and Fumino seem to have a bit of a Taiga / Minori from Toradora thing going on. That is to say Fumino wants to support the relationship with Uruka but along the way she will most likely fall in love with Nariyuki.

From the stance of having this be a bit of a less ‘joke’ style romance, I’m more inclined to support one of those two. In my case Fumino out of personal taste.


I don't know, to me the way he's pretty much turned his teacher into a student he's tutoring on the life she's missed and the way he and Rizu have that certain shyness around each other make them definite contenders. If you look back on his cosplay date with Sensei the moments were there when it was obvious he was seeing her the same way as the others. The same could be said when he looked up at Rizu on the roadside when she got lost behind the inn a few episodes back. Since then he's always more around Rizu than anyone. The thing is, he has the best friends in love connection with Uraka, has shown that he has full interest in Fumino and taken to truly enjoying his private time with Sensei, being more a mother to her than anything. Sensei seems to be experiencing the teenage years she totally missed out on here while in her early 20s.Honestly they all have great strengths which are rarely seen in a complete harem cast. Saekano is one of the rare cases where they got it all right and this seems to be following in those footsteps somewhat.

I don't know... In Saekano, there was one major contender that was far better than the rest, Utaha. It's quite telling that of all the candidates, her story was the only version to reach completion in the manga series due to her overwhelming popularity.

In Bokuben, Sensei is starting to take that position due to overwhelming popularity (I'm on team sensei as well). But unlike Saekano, every girl in Bokuben is best girl in their own right, as you stated. Rizu has fallen behind for a long time but she is back in the running in the source. That's what I love about this series. You can legitimately love all the girls, which is VERY hard to do in a harem series.

Bokuben is on another level.

Agreed!

In many cases, I'm not quite sure we could even call any of the harem candidates trope in this. While we've seen Sensei after their students it's rare to see it be a reluctant Sensei that's very close to the age of said student and also one who's tried denying herself the right. We've seen the girl next door in love with the MC in other anime but rarely is she so outgoing in the way of pretty much telling him she's got a target on him for the near future. We have the busty yet obtuse harem candidate in many anime but yet they're never the one we see learn to use their assets to get an advantage over the other candidates. Most importantly, we very rarely see the candidate who is reluctant to make a move due to not want to hurt her friends who are pulling her into the middle of it all. We've seen many of these types of characters in dramatic SoL anime but very very rarely in a harem comedy.

Lol the Fumino bullying this episode. Rizu almost an H cup, wew baby . Glad to see this series back, I feel like this was originally intended to be a two cour, but for whatever reason they just decided to split it into two seasons.



Did they animate the summer in OVAs? It'd be a shame if they just skipped it, I'd like my beach sensei.



Anyways, as for who would win the Nariyukibowl in the end. If it was based on popularity (in Japan) then Sensei would be the clear victor. No contest. Which compared to most harems would be quite the different ending. In my head I feel like logically Fumino would probably win, I don't know she just seems like winning material compared to the rest. Although to be honest I'd be happy with any result because all the girls are lovable in their own way.

Episode 2

Asumi sure gets pissed off when there's no work for her to do. Such is the case when she went over to everybody's homes only to find the girls not exactly in need of maid service. But she got to do some work at Nariyuki's house. And then Kirisu-sensei has a bad day as her laptop ran out of juice while writing up a quiz, feeling restless at school and dozing off. If that wasn't enough, she lost her apartment keys that somehow ended up in her USB case. That was some pretty funny stuff, and Kirisu-sensei is pretty cute when she's desperate. Looks like the students aren't the only ones in need of some serious learning.

Oh, they all needed the maid service (especially Sensei and Furuhashi), but they all got self-conscious because Yuiga was there.

Also, this episode once again shows why Sensei will forever be the bestest of the best girls in this show (because let's be honest, every girl is best girl).

This episode skyrocketed Ashumi to my #1. I still ship Nariyuki with Fumino, but Ashumi is who I’d want for myself.

Love how all the girls get the spotlight treatment, senpai an sensei this week. I can't help feeling though, that this season's episodes have a kind of a "been there done that" feel to them, also seems like a LOT of SD animation and corner cutting too. It's just kind of missing something from last season.

Ep.2


I liked the second episode a lot more than the first because we got more sensei and Asumi. The first part was sure funny with Asumi and Nariyuki to clean houses. However turns out they had to clean Fumino, Uruka and sensei's place so they hardly clean anything. Well at least Asumi did clean something and that's Nariyuki's place and even clean his ear. Now for the second part we get to see what happens when sensei doesn't get any sleep which was funny since it's so not like her. We also got a little fan service which was nice so yeah this episode was a lot better.

half an hour is all you need huh


damn that booty!
