Saekano -How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend- Midway impression


I didn’t think a still image gave this odd moment justice.

*If anyone is looking for context: The animators panned down to her boobs for no reason and made them jiggle (it comes out of nowhere). *

This anime from episode 1-5 is not really that interesting a watch.  The show was bland, slow and lacking a tone outside of: “look at all the anime references! Don’t you love how he wants to turn this emotionless girl into his dream character?” Not really.

T_o The logic of the show is: “keep them bland, that way when you add emotion it hits hard.”

Do people in japan really read books where cardboard characters interact with no chemistry until the midway point? How is one meant to get any emotional impact from an underserved random shock moment? I’m not going: “That was a hard hitting scene” I’m more: “Where the heck did that come from????”

Episode 6 completely loses any form of creativity and ops for the paint by numbers anime pandering approach.  The juxtaposition between this episode and the first 5 is so drastic I can now understand why in episode 0 the girls sexually assaults him for fun…..and nobody speaks of it after.

T_T He has sex with his writer……which had no build up!

Girl: “We are friends”

Guy: “I want to make my game”

Girl: “let’s have sex”

Guy: “ok”

What the hell!

The fan service in this episode is uncomfortable to watch at time, while at others it is so out of place you can’t help but laugh.

extra: Did anyone-ells spot that one of the background songs is clearly “Lovely Day”.


Drop /postponed Saekano -How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend-


*watched episode 0*

XD Ironic seeing as what they were talking about during the beginning of this anime.

I might return to this when the show has finished and I can read more reviews however, for the moment I’m going to stop because there was one scene that made me feel very uncomfortable.

In over the top comedy harem we are shown by are main males expression that they are sexually aroused by the woman presented and they like to be assaulted and have guns pointed at their head (I don’t understand why a gun to the head is erotic?)

It’s established at the bath scene that are mane male was more annoyed that he couldn’t talk anime with the girls then the fact he couldn’t see them naked. One of the girls takes him into the wood with the intention of helping him write a better erotic script for a game he is making and then….the show put me through a loop.

She starts of by squeezing his bottom and proceeds to work her way up while pretending she is helping him with his story problem, this is followed up by her slowly moving her  leg up to his crotch.

Then another girl takes him and places his head in her boobs and pins him to the floor.

The 3 girl bound his hands and …..O_O think I will let the image speak for itself.

I just watched 3 girls sexually assault this boy and the anime moves along as if nothing happened??? let’s do a little gender swap: 3 high school boys bound a girls arm and then proceeded to play with her privates against her will, After this traumatic experience she walks away as if nothing happened.

It’s got that same disturbing humor that turned me off “your lie in April” (both show do share a lot of the same producers).
